About the property

OWNER MANAGED: NO HIDDEN FEES! In this gorgeous, 3rd floor, GULF-FRONT CORNER UNIT, there is absolutely nothing between your terrace and the sugar-white sandy beach -- the entire unit is bathed in the soft blue-green glow of the Gulf waters, and the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep at night. It's no wonder our guests return year after year. The carpeted master suite has a king-size bed, reading nook, TV, DVD player, dressing room and full bathroom including Jacuzzi. The carpeted guest bedroom has two queen beds, HDTV, VCR, and full bathroom. The living room has HDTV, DVD player, stereo, and wet bar with stone-tile floors.

The separate dining room, adjoining the kitchen, has seating for six with three window walls overlooking the Gulf. The completely equipped kitchen with all new appliances, granite countertops, stone tile floors, new cabinets, and washer and dryer will make this a carefree vacation.

Mainsail is a secure gated community on 15 lush, landscaped acres directly on the broad, sugar-white sandy Miramar beach. The property includes two pools (one heated), waterfall, hot tub, kiddie pools, four lighted tennis courts, fitness center, barbecue grills, and shuffleboard. The whole complex is ideal for families, with lots of safe space for children to play. This condo is the very front unit on the third floor in the building closest to the water, offering panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from nearly every room.

Area attractions appeal to every member of the family, including 25 golf courses within 14 miles, chartered deep-sea fishing, para-sailing, art galleries, the Gulfarium Marine Museum, the Track Amusement Park, Big Kahuna's water park, many wonderful restaurants, shopping, mini golf and water parks.

About Suzanne Young

Hi y'all! We are Bob, Suzanne and Jason Young from Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We are the new owners of Mainsail 131. We have been guests at Mainsail for almost 30 years. We are so excited to, finally, have a Mainsail condo our family can enjoy and we can share it with YOURS. We hope that all of the Kroll's guests, as well as new friends, will continue to stay with us for many years to come.

In our search for a condo to purchase, I can tell you without reservation that Mainsail's oceanfront units, with their 65 foot wrap around balconies and wall of windows offer one of the most, if not THE most, amazing views on the Emerald Coast. We have visited so many complexes and none, in our opinion, even comes close.

We think we have a unique perspective with regard to the guests who visit the condo. For so many years, we WERE guests and think we know what you require and what makes you happy. That is our desire, when we are not able to enjoy the condo, we want you to feel it is YOUR home away from home.

Since our year-round home is close by, our plan is to update and refresh the condo little by little as we visit over the next several months/years. We hope you will want to visit and enjoy our new additions. What I can assure will ALWAYS be waiting for you... unchanged, year after year... is that gorgeous view and the relaxing sound of the surf just outside your door.

The sea is calling... please come visit us soon.

Suzanne Young purchased this condo in 2012

Why Suzanne Young chose Miramar Beach

Destin offers the most beautiful beaches in North America, perhaps the world. I love the slow and easy pace of life in this quintessentially Southern town, still full of its old fishing-village charm. So many wonderful restaurants, fabulous shopping, sport fishing, great golf and lovely people make this a wonderful place to visit, which is probably why my guests and I return year after year. Mainsail Resort is located directly on the beach -- no roads to cross, no traffic to dodge -- with 15 lushly landscaped acres. So if you never left the property, you'd still find plenty of things to do, between tennis, two pools, jacuzzi and that fabulous beach. Then, when you just have to have some shopping time... Silver Sands, a destination shopping mall, is directly across new Hwy. 98 from the condo. What they don’t have you don’t need. One doesn’t need to leave the mall parking lot for lunch, either... there is Cheeseburger in Paradise, Panera Bread and Carrabbas’s Italian Grill and you’ve hardly left “home”.

What makes this condo unique

No doubt about it, the view of the Gulf from this beachfront condo is the first thing everyone mentions. The first time I saw the blue-green Gulf waters and the sugar-white sands just outside the windows and visible from just about every room, I knew I had to have this place for myself and each time I return I get that same old thrill -- it never gets old! Add to that the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep, the casual but beautiful beachy decor that reflects the colors of the Gulf, the morning dolphin sightings from the deck...and you have a place that will call you back again and again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob and Suzanne, I would like to thank you for letting us rent your Mainsail 131 condo for the week. All the pictures couldn't do justice to the great views from your unit. We had all the curtains open so we could take in the view. The weather allowed us to have a few good beach days. The unit was very nicely appointed and the king bed was very comfortable. We will consider your unit next year and are going to try to get another couple to stay to help with the cost. Again thank you.

We enjoyed our stay and was very pleased with the unit. It was very clean, right on the beach, good location and could not ask for better view. Loved looking out from the balcony in the morning and seeing the Dolphins. Very relaxing getaway and family friendly.

Family of 4 with two young boys

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo. You will not regret staying here. The owners were very friendly and easy to deal with, and the property itself is just perfection. We stayed here with our 2 boys aged 8 and 5 years -and they both loved it too. The views are spectacular - if you want true ocean gulf views, this is the condo for you. The beach is in pristine condition, too. Mainsail condos are conveniently located near shopping and restaurants and outside of the very busy center of Destin proper, and this is the best one we have ever rented. If you are looking for a beautifully appointed condo with amazing views and easy access to the beach, this is the place for you. We have visited the Destin area several times and this is by far the best place we have found to stay. I wish we could cle back every year! We definitely hope to stay in this lovely condo again in the future. It made a wonderful family vacation even more special! Thank you.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 teens on our family's first true vacation in years. The consensus was that it was the best vacation ever! The views of the beach and water were spectacular. The area was great! There was ample room that we werent on top of eachother. We loved how close we were to the beach. We watched our kids play soccer on the beach while we sat on the balcony enjoying a nice breeze and glass of wine listening to the waves. I seriously didnt want to leave. It was wonderful to roll over upon waking up and see the beach and waves from the bed looking through the floor to ceiling slider in the master bedroom.The included chairs and umbrella were a dream after getting fried the first day we went to the harbor walk to parasail and snorkel. Kitchen was well equipped, bedrooms were big and had closets and plenty or drawers. The place was clean and decorated lovely. they had shuffle board and tennis available. the pool looked nice although we spent all our time on the beach. We were right by the grocery and dollar general for snacks and beach stuff. We cant wait to return! I barely got home and started looking at the calander for next year.

Best of Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

This was our daughter-in-law and grandson's first experience of the beach and it was a homerun! Our weather was perfect and so were our accomodations. We could not have asked for anything better. The location is ideal for families or couples. We will definitely be coming back. Our grandson was heartbroken to have to leave and of all the activities we had while there, boating, dolphin excursion, etc.....he said the beach was his favorite and is ready to come back any minute! So is is grandmother!

I would recommend this condo to ANYONE. The Young Family are more than accomodating and oh so easy to work with. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with our family. We'll see you again!

Exceptional Oceanfront Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best family vacations we have ever taken! The condo is right on the beach with amazing views on the wrap around balcony. Renters are just steps away from the beach, which makes for quick runs back to the condo for lunch, afternoon breaks or just forgotten items. No more lugging everything to the beach for the entire day (we saw some of those families at other beaches down the road). The beach chairs and umbrella put up daily by the association were wonderful. Make sure you head down to the beach around 8 a.m. to get yours reserved just by putting your towel on the back of the chair you desire for the day. Other condo guests were very respectful and did not bother any of our items by our chairs when we were out in the water or back up at the condo for lunch. The condo was nice, spacious and comfortable; updated from some of the pictures on the site. There were five in our party, including kids and we did not feel at all crowded. There is not a bad spot in the condo for taking in the beach views. We loved turning off the A/C in the evening and opening up the sliding doors for fresh air, true beach living! The kitchen had all the items needed for the week long stay, including all utensils and baking/cooking pans and mixing bowls. The appliances were up to date and clean. And I thoroughly agree with some of the other reviews… the beds were amazingly comfortable! Bob and Suzanne made the rental process easy and stress free - honestly easier than booking a hotel. This is the ONLY place we will stay when we visit Destin again!
