Recent Sandestin Area reviews

  • Wonderful stay!

    "My family and I just got back from our wonderful stay in Sandestin. The place was so great. The condo was very clean and the decor was so cute. The kids loved feeding the ducks and turtles off the back deck. The condo was equipped with everything we needed. We could not have asked for a better place to stay and look forwarded to going back next year."

  • Great condo!

    "We had a great vacation staying here for 6 days. The condo is exactly as described. Loved watching the sunrise from the balcony each morning! This condo is right on the golf course and a lake so we enjoyed watching the golfers, rabbits, and ducks. Kids enjoyed having their own bedroom and bathroom. It's very quite on this side of the resort but only a quick drive around to the marina and restaurants. There were fireworks at the marina 2 nights-we watched them from the balcony. Easy to book!"

  • Great place, Great Location!

    "Condo is even more spacious than pictures show. Patio is huge! Decor is nice and makes you feel at the beach and home. All appliances worked great (washer/dryer). 2 Bathrooms are very spacious. It was nice that there were some beach amenities available at the condo already (chairs, sand castle tools, pool noodles). Wifi was easy to use. Great location! Down from busy area of Destin but close enough to drive to great restaurants. Walmart and other regular stores close enough for quick grocery trip. Location of condo on floor is good too-down toward end so not any foot traffic past it. Beds were very comfortable. Not a single bug sited at the condo. The beach front is gorgeous! Sand volleyball close by. Great size swimming pools with plenty of pool side seating. Owner was very informative and easy to work with. Weather was great! Ended up with less rain than predicted. Apparently locals call it the Destin Dome effect. Rains around them but not always on them. Urgent care clinic and hospital within just a few miles. Hope you get a chance to go and have a wonderful time admiring more of God's majesty!"

  • AWESOME

    "We had a wonderful time at this home. Pictures do not do this home justice! They thought of everything you just need to bring your clothes and that's it.We usually eat out every meal but I actually cooked because we wanted to hang out at the house. This was our first time in Sandestin resort loved everything but the crowded beach but you can easily go somewhere else if crowds bother you like me. Everything else is 5 stars though. Scott was great to rent from. Thanks for allowing our family to stay in your lovely home and I hope we can returrn next year."

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.
