Recent Sandestin Area reviews

  • Wonderful Week

    "We really had a terrific stay at this house. The furnishings and decor were luxurious. The bedrooms were very comfortable and we all liked the private decks and beach views. The guest cottage was especially unique and private. There was plenty of room and space for everyone. I would highly recommend this house and will consider staying here again for future vacations."

  • Great Rental Home!

    "This is a great place to stay. The house is as nice as the photos! The golf carts are a must! There is so much to do within Sandestin and with the beach being so close (via golf cart) that you do not need to leave the community unless you want to explore elsewhere! I would definitely stay here again! The Village at Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard at Sandestin offer entertainment, shopping, dining and grocery. Hop in your golf cart and let the adventure begin!"

  • Relaxing, clean, wonderful Bungalow!

    "We had the best time at this Bungalow! We loved having a golf cart to use and explore the surrounding area. And the pool was extremely close which made it convenient to go to. Bungalo itself was decorated beautifully made us feel very much at home. And the owners are wonderful. They were accessible by phone and answered any questions we had. It was a great vacation!!"

  • Great location, nice apartment

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This unit has a great location. If you want to go to the swimming pool, you're just steps away from it, so if you need to go back and get a drink or something to eat, you don't need to take the elevator. And being in the Baytowne Wharf was great because after a day at the pool or the beach, you don't need to take your car to go anywhere. I think the restaurants at the Wharf are not that good, but we did enjoy the ice cream places, the playground (I have two little kids), feeding the fish and all the activities at the Wharf. The sleeper sofa is new and seems to be comfortable. My kids slept there for 8 nights and never woke up in the middle of the night and never complained about it not being comfortable. The carpets are new and they don't have spots nor weird odors. I'm allergic and I didn't have any problems during my stay there. Actually the whole apartment was very clean. It is a really nice place. I would change: 1) the two plastic floral arrangements (you can see them in the picture), because I think they accumulate dust and they are not really necessary. 2) The cover or drape in the sink at the second bathroom, it doesn't look nice, it looks old. We were really happy with the managing company, Vacations by Platinum, their service is great, the check-in was super fast and we called them twice because we had two little issues and they solved them immediately. I will definitely stay here again and will recommend the apartment to my friends. We had a great time and unforgettable vacations!"

Sandestin Area Travel Tips

Get ready for some fun under the sun along the beautiful coastal waters of Destin, Fla. This sandy beachfront community features a wealth of outdoor activities and excursions that will make this vacation a standout in the memory bank. Located on the Florida panhandle, visitors will enjoy the shimmering waters and warm breezes that drift up from the Gulf.

The city as we know it today was established by Captain Leonard Destin, who moved to the northwest Florida coast from Connecticut in the mid-1800s. Captain Destin pioneered the fishing industry in the town that bears his name, and that tradition is still a major part of the community’s economy today. The largest and most elaborately equipped fishing fleet docks here in Destin due to its close proximity to the 100 Fathom curve and deep Gulf waters.

Golfers Paradise

Golf has become a popular activity among tourists and locals alike, and visitors have a wide selection of courses to choose from. Whether you’re a PGA professional or an amateur golfer, you’ll be sure to find a course that is both challenging and fun. These are some of the best fairways scattered in and around the city of Destin:

- Raven Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., and features an array of stunning vistas that carve through the marshes and pine groves of Sandestin. The 6,900-yard, par-71 course will present golfers with a challenging and strategy-filled match that is sure to test almost every club in their bags. Over the past few years, this club has played host to PGA events as well as NCAA championships and has been honored by quite a few publications as one of the best courses in Florida.

- Burnt Pine Golf Club is a spectacular 7,000-yard jewel that rests upon the Emerald Coast of Florida. The back nine stretches out along the shoreline of the Choctawhatchee Bay, which provides some absolutely breathtaking natural beauty. The front nine is spread out through the lush pine groves and wetlands that populate the area, but look out - these pretty vistas provide some tricky obstacles as you make your way from tee to tee. The course was designed by architect Rees Jones, and has been hailed as a superior one by Golf Magazine and other publications.

- The Links Golf Club deviates from the classic designs of other courses in the area and presents golfers with rolling hills throughout the fairways, as is typical in links-style courses. Resting along the coastline of the Choctawhatchee Bay with a backdrop provided by the Baytowne Marina, this picturesque landscape envelops players with a sense of calm and tranquility. Unless of course your ball ends up in the pits of one of the many bunkers that surround the manicured greens.

Relaxation and Beaching it Easy

There are numerous public beaches that sprawl along the beautiful Emerald Coast. The white sands and warm Gulf breezes make leisurely living come naturally to even the most high-strung travelers. Sink your toes into the sand and take a load off at one of these excellent beaches:

- Barracuda Beach located at Barracuda and Scenic 98 is open to the public, and presents guests with wide-open expanses of sun-baked coastline. Work on a killer tan or try your hand at some sandcastle construction at this incredible oceanfront locale.

- Calhoun Beach near Restaurant Row is another prime public spot that enables travelers to enjoy the coastal views. Open from dawn to dusk, this beach presents a great view of the crashing waves that surge inward from the Gulf.

- Norriego Point Beach is located on the eastern tip of the peninsula and overlooks Destin Bay. Pack a picnic lunch or a romantic sunset dinner for two on the sands of this natural sanctuary and watch the boats as they slowly drift into the harbor.

Activities in Sandestin

If lounging about in the sand all day gets a little hard to handle, there are quite a few local spots that make for an engaging and fun-filled excursion. This quiet oceanfront community offers visitors an array of great activities spread throughout the town. Take an afternoon to discover some of these excellent hangouts:

- The Destin History and Fishing Museum features a variety of exhibits that document the history of this once quaint fishing village. Visitors will find a variety of antique fishing equipment, including one split bamboo pole and Penn reel that belonged to the late American author Ernest Hemingway.

- Destin’s Main Street Market was established by transplants Tom and Amy Holt as a way to promote local farmers and their produce. Every Saturday morning, guests can find a wide spectrum of fruits, vegetables, milk, eggs and baked goods, making the perfect picnic or just something to snack on during deep excursions.
