The owners spared no expense with the total renovation of this gorgeous 18th floor condo, overlooking the beautiful beach. They did the renovations for their own personal use and are extending an invitation for discerning guests to share this beauty. Using fun shark-themed decor, the only thing you’ll find scary is the thought of having to leave here and return back home! Westwinds is the crown jewel of beachfront vacation rentals in Sandestin. There are only 8 of these floor plans with larger square footage and full-sized windows in the bedrooms, offering twice the view of the beach and a view of the beach while laying in your bed.
The living room, complete with two walls of windows, features a wave painting by noted local artist, Justin Gaffrey. There is a 49" Class Samsung Smart - 4K Ultra HD TV including a sound bar for incredible movie-watching when relaxing at night. You’ll find a DVD collection, with something for every age group. There is also a game cabinet, stocked with your family’s favorite games and puzzles – perfect for a rainy day at the beach!
The dining area, with comfortable seating for eight, features a large, concrete top table with an oyster chandelier. In addition to this, there are two stools at the kitchen counter. Adjacent to the dining area is a wine/beverage fridge, perfect for keeping all of your favorite beverages cold – it really helps to free up space in the kitchen refrigerator!
The kitchen, featuring Vetrazzo countertops with recycled glass and oyster shells, is completely outfitted for any entertaining. From sea-inspired tableware and glassware to beautiful serving platters and bowls, each meal at the beach can be a special one.
All three bathrooms feature new cabinetry, new quartzite countertops, new tile and beautiful new fixtures. You’ll feel like you are staying at a five-star resort, rather than in a tired, old rental.
Each bedroom features a down comforter, with sea-inspired décor. Whether you are in the “Sunrise Room” – painted in the exact same coral color as the beautiful sunrise at the beach, the Shark-themed bunk room, or the “Sea Coral” master suite, you’ll feel right at home. The master suite also features a Bose Wave clock radio/CD player. There is a wall mounted TV in each of the bedrooms and the secondary bedrooms also have a DVD player.
At Westwinds, there is a lot to enjoy, besides the beach. You will find one of the most luxurious pool areas (with seasonal concession/bar) and a kiddie pool. A Jacuzzi is provided for adult use. There is also a well-equipped workout room, overlooking the gorgeous pool.
Beyond the pool is the sugar sand beach. You may choose to rent chairs and umbrellas from the resort, or you may bring your own.
At Westwinds, you can walk to your choice of restaurants on the beach, including The Beach House and Barefoots Beach Bar and Grill at the Sandestin Hilton. There are two additional restaurants inside The Hilton, which are open for our guests as well. You can also walk to the Serenity by the Sea Spa at the Hilton.
When you stay at the Smith Shark Shack, you also get complimentary access to the shuttle that runs throughout the Sandestin Resort. So, leave the car at the condo and enjoy a night out shuttling to the fun places in Sandestin. And the incredible restaurants, grocery store and movie theatre at Grand Boulevard are just a quick ca
