From your private balcony, gaze at the dolphins in the crystal clear waters of the gulf, the white sand beach or because of its slight western angle, even the action of the city! It has the best of all three worlds! The western angle provides more privacy than other units and eliminates any noise from the pool or kids play area so that you can have the most peaceful private stay that only a penthouse can offer.

The kitchen is beautifully appointed with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and fully equipped with everything needed to cook a family meal. It also has a window that overlooks the city and the bay!

Wake up to the same gorgeous views right from your master bedroom. Its ocean front as well with its own private balcony access!

About The Owner

Owner is always available to communicate with and is quick to respond.

What makes this condo unique

What is amazingly unique about this penthouse unit is that the balcony sits at a slight western angle giving it unlimited full views of the city light and action as well as the entire beach as far as you can see, not just the portion in front of you like some units. This means that you don't have to walk out onto the balcony in order to see the water and the beach. You have amazing views from the living room AND the master bedroom since the bedroom is not positioned back deep inside by the front door.

Relaxing Beach Condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely, relaxing stay in this condo. We have 3 kids, and with the sofa bed and roll away bed, everyone had a place to sleep. The view was really nice because you have half of a beach view and half of a city view. Definitely different than anywhere we have stayed. Our kids enjoyed the heated indoor pool and hot tub because the outdoor pool was still pretty cold. There is not a washer and dryer in the unit, so be sure to bring some change for the washer and dryer located on the same floor. Chris, the condo owner, was very helpful and kind all along the way. He even left us a welcome card and gift upon our arrival.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you enjoyed all the amenities and specially the views. They are spectacular for sure. Thank you for taking the time to share such kind words. It was my pleasure to make sure you enjoyed the penthouse and make it as special as possible. Always great to hear when our guest has a great time. Glad you had everything you needed for the kids. The sofa bed and twin rollaway are perfect for kids and the washer and dryer just outside in the hallway work well so I’m glad you were able to get change and utilize them. They really don’t get used much on the top floor. Thanks again and we are so happy your overall experience was wonderful. You are welcome back anytime.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had staying here. It was exactly as pictured and stated. Very nice and very comfortable. Loved being on top floor and loved that it was 1 1/2 bathrooms. Owner communication is great. LOVE that door is opened with code. No need to worry about key !!! Had everything that you need except your suit and towel!!!! Loved that SunDestin had 4 elevators.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time. See, it was just like i said! Destin is great and the SunDestin resort is amazing. You get to bypass the front desk and dont have to deal with the resort staff at all unless you want to. You are penthouse guest and get to be special your entire stay. We are so glad you had a great time. Means the world to us. Thank you for the kind words and you are welcome back anytime!!

Modern and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse Suite was a perfect place to stay in Destin. Gorgous beach, great view, clean and well equipt condo. Close to everything there is to do in Destin, restaurants, golf and lots of other activities. The Penthouse is well decorated, modern and very quiet. The owner made us feel very welcome and was always availabe if needed. The management company also was great and knew everything about the condo and its amenities. Loved our short 3 days and look forward to returning soon.
