About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Luau is located within Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort! Sandestin was voted the 'Best Resort' in Destin, Florida and the 1# Resort on Florida's beautiful Emerald Coast.

The bedding for this condo is as follows:

Master Bedroom: King

Guest Master Bedroom: King + Twin Pull-Out Sofa

1st Bedroom: Queen

Living Area: Queen Pull-Out Sofa

This gulf-side condo is professionally designed and decorated. When you first enter you will be amazed at how large the living area is. This unique lock-off unit boasts 2 master bedrooms with the ability to separate for more privacy. Each has its own full bathroom and king size bed. The lock-off bedroom doubles as a 1 bedroom studio, with its own mini-fridge, coffee maker, wet bar, microwave and private living area, perfect for couples traveling together, or as a 'kids suite'. There is also an additional bedroom with a queen bed a queen sleeper sofa in the living area as well as a twin sleeper sofa in the lock off bedroom. With a fully loaded kitchen, you will find everything you need to enjoy meals in, with seating for 8 in the main dining room, and bonus seating at the breakfast bar. This unit also has deep soaker tubs, washer and dryer, ceiling fans in the bedroom and living area, and two balconies. One of the balconies is off the main living area and is spacious enough to have a cocktail party. There is also a balcony off the master, not just a step out but an actual place to sit and have a cup of coffee. From the roomy balconies, not only are you offered the preferred and spectacular westerly views over the palm trees at the pool and also views of the aquamarine waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Choctawatchee Bay and Baytowne Golf Course. The sunsets from this condo are breathtaking! In addition, this unit is on the same level as the Observation Deck so just walk down the hall to enjoy viewing fireworks from the Hilton.

The tropical Luau condominiums are the newest development on the beach side of the resort. With spectacular views, a fitness center, 4000 square foot lagoon style salt water pool with swim under waterfall, heated spa, tot's pool, Tiki Hut and proximity to the beach this is definitely the new hot spot.

On the other side of the resort is the exciting Village of Baytowne Wharf. The Village has something going on all of the time! From restaurants to first rate boutiques, to live entertainment you can find something for every member of your family. And if you are worried about parking, ask me about golf cart rentals or access to private garage parking.

From the Luau it is only a short stroll to the beach. You can also walk to these restaurants: Finz, Seagar's (Northwest Florida's first AAA four-diamond fine restaurant), Hadashi (sushi), Picnix Deli, Sandcastles, and Barefoots Beachside Bar and Grill. But if you do not want to go out to eat you can grill on the built-in stainless steel grills that are located along the stream that winds though the complex. There are plenty of tables for your outdoor dining experience.

The exclusive resort of Sandestin is the spot for an ideal vacation! Sandestin is situated on 2400 acres between the Choctawatchee Bay and Gulf of Mexico. Sandestin boasts 72 holes of golf, over 11 miles of biking and walking trails, a 98 slip marina with boat, kayak, canoe and jet ski rentals, stocked lakes for fishing, spa and full service heath club, plus access to the beautiful beach where there is no better sunset.

Once you enter this private gated community there will be no need to venture out, there is even a Publix grocery store on property. This 11th Floor 3 bedroom, 3 bath Luau Tower II condo is the perfect base from which to explore all Sandestin has to offer.

In the unit there are beach chairs and umbrellas for your day on the beach. It is such a short walk - you are going to love it.

Our condo is equipped with a key-less lock system that makes check-in a breeze, no keys to get, just go directly to your room. Plus the key-less lock system provides added security for you and top that off with the fact that the Luau is gated with controlled access you could not find a safer spot.

Great location, golf cart was very convienient

  • 4 of 5

Perfect spot, easy to get to beach, take golf cart to bay side and publix and other shops and restaurant. Used a ride service there and only needed the golf cart the whole stay. They said a blow dryer would be in the unit and never found one so the ladies had wet hair for 8 days... fridge was leaking and ice maker and water on fridge was broke. Condo had ice machine down stairs and publix also delivered so we ordered a lot of water and they brought it to our door. Beach chairs were a plus but had to bring them... but of a hassle having dedicated chairs and umbrella at the beach would have been worth it. No issues with wifi. Pool tiki bar is great and one of the best cheeseburgers we ever had. Very convienient right down stairs too. We had a great time and would return again! Would have given 5 stars if we had the blow dryer and working ice and water from fridge or at least a response from Shelley when reported.

This condo is like buying the cheapest base model vehicle

  • 1 of 5

The floor plan is great. The views are great. The pool and access to the beach and resort is great, but that is the case for every other condo at the Luau. I have stayed at condos at the Luau for ten years and this was the worst experience I have ever had.

Complaints (not in order): 1) terrible wifi coverage -- two rooms had zero wifi and three days after complaining techs came to fix the coverage but one bedroom (mine) still did not have coverage; 2) no soap -- there were these small tiny rectangles in each bathroom that disintegrated after one use, but for people renting a week it was wholly unacceptable. We had to go buy soap; 3) inadequate paper towels - two rolls for a three bedroom, kitchen, and kitchenette. We also had to go buy paper towels; 4) not enough toilet paper -- four rolls for the entire three bathrooms. We had to buy toilet paper too to make it through the week; 5) ZERO pantry for food. All non-refrigerated food had to sit on the floor, counter tops, or on top of the dining room table; 6) no oven mitts -- we had to use wet towels; 7) no access to the Sandestin shuttle -- was told by rental agent that they did not want to sign an agreement with Sandestin for for the shuttle, but that we could rent the golf cart for extra. In all the years 17 years that I have stayed at a Sandestin condo (regardless of whether through VRBO, private rental or resort rental), I have never been told that we did not have shuttle access; 8) zero aluminum foil, saran wrap, or any other food covering; 9) zero complimentary shampoo, conditioner, or any other toiletry items; 10) the world's smallest washing machine. We could get one beach towel and maybe a few bathing suits in and it was full. We did get a pair of jeans and some underwear and a shirt once. Never more than two towel and maybe some underwear. Of course there was ZERO clothes washing supplies, which was not that uncommon. However, because of the world's smallest washing machine, you had to use three times as many pods since you had to the cycle three times to get what would be a normal load in a regular washing machine; 11) all three beds have mattresses that may be as old as the Luau. The center of the bed sinks lower than the sides. If you have ANY back issue, these beds are terrible and you do not want to rent this unit; and 12) the absolute worst guest host service ever. Escapetodestin sucks. Un-returned emails. Un-returned texts and calls. Day late email responses.
