Recent Sandestin Area reviews

  • Excellent Stay

    "We stayed here for Memorial Day in 2014 and everything was wonderful. The resort is beautiful. The owner was easy to work with. The unit was perfect for our family of 4 and could have accommodated up to 6. Its location is very convenient to the Village and to the resort pool. Access to the beach was easy using the resort tram system. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to the area. We hope to stay again soon."

  • Sanctuary that Renewed Us

    "We just returned from the best spring break ever with our family. Our twin teenagers already want to book it to go back. We were so surprised with the beautiful, immaculate appointments in decor, and space. Our twins had the whole upstairs loft to themselves with their own bathroom. We all loved the porches that wrap around 3 sides and our favorite to have meals on the back porch overlooking the pond and golf course. Since it was spring break, the golf cart was extremely handy for parking at the beach and getting around the resort easily. We also rented bikes and rode an hour through the resort each day. It took us all week to ride down every street. The pool at Laurel Grove is the largest one on the property. A country club feel. Plenty of closet space. A treasure of a closet on the porch filled with beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, mats, boogie boards, frisbee. Loved having the washer and dryer. We used it for clothes but there were ample towels. We all loved the secret path for golf carts to the beach. Rode the golf cart to nearby Publix grocery store. Walmart just 2 stop lights away. On a quite culdesac. We long for our trip back. Favorite restaurants: Stinky's, Vue, Surf Hut, Donut Hole We had friends over and grilled and ate at the pool porch overlooking another pond. So nice that we did not have to worry about keys or cards. Just the coded door so taht we could all come and go easily."

  • BEST. CONDO. EVER!

    "We love Sandestin and in the past have stayed at the Hilton on the beach. This time decided to try renting a condo (Hilton was booked up). Dave's condo served as a home away from home and we will never stay anywhere else while in Sandestin! My two teenage boys had their own room - even though it's listed as a one bedroom, a second bedroom with bunk beds, a tv, dresser, fan, and a door, is included. They were very comfortable in their own room. The master bedroom has a very comfy king size bed, dresser, night stands, closet, our own bathroom and vanity. The family room was beautiful and the couch and chairs are super comfy and cozy! The kitchen was totally stocked with anything you could need for a week! Just bring the food! We used the bar stools or dining room table every day to eat and the private balcony is beautiful for your morning coffee or evening drink! :) The condo is located right in the center or Baytowne Wharf but being located on the parking lot side, you have much needed peace and quiet at night! It's literally steps away from everything Baytowne Wharf has to offer! The pool was very conveniently located close by and never overcrowded. It is a beautiful pool and spa with lots of chairs and even a couple of grills you can use along with many table and chairs for a meal by the pool! I can't recommend Dave and this condo enough! Dave was extremely helpful in the renting process and even checked on us during the week via texting! He even texted us to remind us of events in Baytowne Wharf! He's a great guy to rent a condo from and we will always be thankful for him! The golf cart was super fun and served as our means of transportation for the week! You can take it to the beach, fishing, golfing, movies, restaurants and even grocery shopping! It's a fantastic addition to your week and you will treasure having it! If you're looking for an absolutely beautiful condo that is a very comfortable, newly decorated, a great value and close to everything, THIS IS IT! You are close to everything, still have privacy, security, and peace and quiet! We'll definitely be back!"

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.
