  • Girls Trip

    "My friends and I rented out this condo for a girls beach trip from Thursday to Sunday August 21-24, 2014. Everything was very simple and straightforward entering the condo using the codes provided. It was nice to not have keys or cards to get into the condo since there were 7 of us. The condo was very clean and although we only took advantage of the fridge, the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware, dinnerware and utensils. The sleep sofa was disappointing, the mattress was very thin and sunk when slept on. It was so uncomfortable that we ended up having the person who was staying on the sleep sofa move into one of the rooms with a king bed share with 2 other girls, luckily the bed was big enough! I would say this unit sleeps 6 comfortably and that the advertisement of sleeping 8 is a bit unrealistic unless the sleeper sofa mattress is replaced, or that the 7th and 8th are children. There were beach chairs available to use in the condo which was great! We also took advantage of the washer and dryer in the unit to wash beach towels daily. I definitely recommend bringing extra toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags and laundry detergent if staying more than a couple days as you will run out with what is given at the start of your stay. It was a great location to the beach, which was not very busy during our stay and it was extremely easy to catch the tram to Baytowne. I will definitely be back to Westwinds in the future!"

  • Great stay!!!

    "We really enjoyed our stay here! Location was wonderful! The condo was just as described- very nicely decorated, comfortable and we felt very at home! Loved the kitchen area with all the utensils and cookware that we needed. Very short walk to the beach from the condo. Pool areas were very nice and enjoyed by the teenagers that were with us. Owner was great to work with and so very helpful!! Can't wait to come back!!"

  • Dog friendly, but tired

    "Rating Details: I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was clean. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We rented a dog friendly unit and you could certainly tell. I went out and bought spot rug cleaner as the upstairs carpert had over 30 pets stains from prior use and had not been vacuumed. Lots of marks on the walls. I fresh coat of paint would help. Upstairs master bedroom window needs repair as you could hear everything from neighbors outside patio. Kitchen was nice although not very many storage dishes."

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.
