Andree McDonald purchased this condo in 2017

Why Andree McDonald chose Miramar Beach

Destin offers the most beautiful beaches along the coast. Sugar white sand and emerald green waters. We purchased our first condo at Mainsail in 2009 and were so happy with our decision that we purchased this condo in April 2017. We look forward to sharing our place in paradise with you.

The location of Mainsail is relaxing and easy. It's by far, 'The best place to grab your flip flops and relax'! The area has many restaurants, superb shopping from boutiques, antique stores to the largest outlet mall in the South located across the street. You can also catch your dinner with a fishing excursion, para sail, play a round of golf or just kick back and people watch. Mainsail Resort is located directly on the beach -- and is a hidden GEM for those of you who have never visited. Once you stay here, you realize. This property has the widest private beach in the area and most of all there are no roads to cross. The property is a gated community and is very family friendly. Mainsail also offers tennis courts, basketball goals, shuffleboard, hot tub, 2 pools, a dedicated kiddie pool and grills for you to enjoy. Forgot something... you don't have to venture far at all; there is a grocery store, restaurants, a beach store all right outside the gates of this complex.

What makes this condo unique


Walk down the stairs from your private balcony to the beach. Want to make a quick run for the condo, no elevators needed. Yeahhh... that's what convenience is all about on vacation!!!!

Newly renovated, great amenities, nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this newly renovated condo right on the beachfront. It was a very short walk to the beach, pool, and hot tub. The property has all kinds of great amenities including tennis/shuffleboard, basketball, kiddie pool, and even a heated pool near the front of the property. The condo is in a great location directly across from an outlet mall, grocery store, pharmacy, and restaurants within walking distance - immediately outside of the condo property. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for 8 people (6 adults + 2 kids). The Murphy bed was a plus for the kids, which was much nicer for them than sleeping on the couch. The owner was extra friendly, courteous, and easily reachable throughout our stay. We will be visiting again and will definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a fabulous vacation at Mainsail 116 !! From the moment we booked we were totally satisfied. Andree is so easy to work with and so helpful. She provided so much information to help us with the area and answered every question that we had. She has even made an app with info on it that I used several times! The condo was absolutely perfect for our family! It was so clean when we arrived and there were many little extras that we noticed right away. The Murphy bed was such a plus for us. The location to the beach is perfect as well. We had our grandson and we had to haul a lot of stuff to haul back and forth and the outside steps from the balcony to the beach were perfect for that. In our hurry to leave I left something in the condo and Andree immediately got in touch with me to get it returned to me. I thank you again! We had a perfect week and we are definitely planning to return to this condo!

Owner's Response: Denise, Thank you so much for your sweet words regarding our condo. I am happy that you chose our beach home and that you where pleased with the rental experience. Yeahhh... you liked our new app. It took time to assemble but I think its a nice perk for our guests. This app surely helps with all kinds of information for our beach home along with lots of local hot spots. I have to say we are truly blessed to have the same cleaning team for the last 5 years and they do a great job at all of our properties. Honesty and integrity are important characteristics we look for when we hire and it was truly evident by your experience. We are happy that all worked out and I look forward to having your wonderful family back with us in the future. Regards, Andree' McDonald

Mainsail 116 is more than we ever imagined - the owners were wonderful to work with. Very clean, spacious and great location. Loved being on the 1st floor & not having to use elevators when going to beach. Andree made sure she included all the little extras in the condo ! We will def be back to stay in this beautiful condo !

Beach View and walk out to the Beach - Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this newly-renovated condo justice. The views directly from the condo and even more so from the balcony were so nice! And walking right out the door to the beach was incredibly convenient - as were the included beach chair service (and extras in the closet!). We had 4 adults & 5 kids (most teens) staying at the condo, which was probably the max - we had plenty of room most of the time, but it did feel a little crowded at times, especially on a rainy day. But the Murphy Bed was a super nice touch. And of course, the outlet malls are literally within walking distance from the condo, so that gave us rainy-day activities, amongst other things. Also got to use the very nice tennis courts and work out facility; there were volleyballs and other fun beach toys available at the condo front office (there is a volleyball net on the beach). The game room gave the kids some diversion, as did the heated pool. We wished the heated pool was the one directly below the condo (since it was March and a little chilly at times), but the heated one was within a fairly easy walking distance. The condo owner was amazing to deal with - she checked in on us to make sure we made it and had everything we needed. Anyway, I would not hesitate to stay at this lovely condo again, and very well may!

Great location and great condo

  • 5 of 5

This location is perfect and so is this condo. You're close to the beach and to the pool. The condo has all the amenities such as tv in every room, washer and dryer, and a keurig coffee maker. The owners are so friendly and are quick to respond if any issues arise. The beach service is convenient. You're close to the outlets, restaurants, and grocery stores. My son left his lovey when we left, and we were told it would be mailed back to us when found. We will definitely be returning to this gem.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at Mainsail and it won't be our last! The owner was great to work with and kept in touch with information from the moment I submitted a request! Our family stayed for a week and we had an amazing beach vacation! The condo was decorated perfectly and felt like home!each room had a comfortable king size bed! We even had a balcony with steps that went to the beach. Being just steps away from the beach was the number one reason we booked this condo. It was nice having beach chairs and an umbrella on the beach for us each day too.It is located in the perfect spot to drive to the harborwalk in Destin or to 30A! The kids would wake up each morning and go straight to the beach for the day and then swimming in the pool in the evening. Thanks again for offering this great place!! Can't wait until next year!

Look forward to having your family back with us in the future. Regards, Andree' McDonald
