About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Professionally decorated two bedroom condo perfect for a family or two couples. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed. The second bedroom has two queen size beds . This freshly painted unit with new carpets and upscale mattresses, linens, new LG washer & dryer, high speed internet, flat screen tvs and other amenities will give you that "at home" feeling. It will almost make you want to stay indoors but its location in the heart of Baytowne Village with the shopping, restaurants, kids arcade and playground, nightly events and night life just a short walk away will beckon you outward.

Of course the pool and the workout facilities are even closer ... as a stones throw from your balcony will place you poolside for that quick dip, or that not so short walk on the treadmill. The white sands and the azure warm waters of the world's most beautiful beaches are just a short 5 minute drive away. You can even go salt or fresh water fishing off the nearby pier or several lakes; also within easy walking distance.

For those attending conferences in Sandestin - it is an easy 5 minute walk to the Sandestin Conference Center.

Four different 18 hole golf courses are on Sandestin property and three of them are open to the guests staying in the resort. You can even play where Gary Player or Chi Chi Rodriguez have competed in a Champion Tour event if you really want to test your skill. Maybe tennis is your game. If so, then a short 5 minute walk will put you on the court and you can choose your surface including grass. Interested in boating, the Marina is just down the boardwalk with a casual restaurant and many other activities to engage in.

After spending the day at the beach, pool or links - you can return to the nighttime activity in the heart of Sandestin, and your 'home away from home' will allow you to leave the car parked, as you extend your fun well into the night. But before venturing out you may want to stroll down to the pier and take in some of the most romantic sunsets offered on the Gulf coast. Then you can start your nighttime adventure at one of the numerous restaurants and bars and then go dancing at one or all of the nightspots catering to all age groups and musical tastes. When you feel you are ready to call it a night, you can be 'home' faster than the valet can retrieve your car at many restaurants.

This is what a vacation is meant to be.

About Donna Godwin

We are true beach people with white sand and gentle surf visions always dancing in our heads. Everyone has their paradise and this is ours. We have two children and live in Florida year around.

Donna Godwin purchased this condo in 2005

Why Donna Godwin chose Sandestin

We first bought in the Sandestin area in the late 1980's and have loved it ever since. In our opinion it has the perfect combination of white sand, clear water and a south facing beach at a latitude where you can watch a sunrise and a sunset over the water. Unlike south Florida we have three seasons (spring,summer and fall) and we like the change that brings. Not for everyone but it is our cup of tea.

What makes this condo unique

Besides the beautiful beaches there are more pools than you can count on two hands and the same for golf courses within five miles of our living room. There is a water park for the kids and numerous bike trails, sailing, kayaking, parasailing, windsurfing and tennis.The dining is superb and the night life is so varied that you would be hard pressed not to find something for your taste...and that is just speaking of what is on the resort site.

Relaxation and Terrific Resort Feel

  • 4 of 5

Our week long family FL beach vacation at the Emerald Coast was great this year (husband, wife, two boys). This condo located at the Pilot House was placed well for our adventures on the premises, at Baytowne Wharf, and nearby beaches. We experienced a very family-friendly atmosphere and the accommodations exceeded our expectations. We felt at home after getting acquainted with the facilities and had everything we needed to relax in the evening and make quick, hot breakfast meals and light dinners a few times. We were so pleased to experience how quiet the unit was. Very seldom were there any noisy sounds heard from above or out in the interior hallway. You have a great view of the hot tub and pool area and there is no noise heard from the crowds at the pool. Also, the beds were some of the most comfortable we've slept on.

The owner was fantastic to deal with and gave great information to help us enjoy our stay.

We would return again and again and will look at this unit in the future.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Where to start - what a great condo! We thoroughly enjoyed the time that we spent staying here. The whole experience, from reserving the condo to checking out was seamless. The location of the condo, with it's balcony overlooking the pool and hot tub, was perfect. It's only a short walk to restaurants, retail shops, activities for the kids, and entertainment. We had everything we needed and the condo was very clean. The kids loved it. Returning after a full day exploring the area felt like coming home. I would definitely recommend this condo. Donna was great and her special welcome was a "treat". We would definitely stay here again.

GREAT time - GREAT place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family completely enjoyed every inch of this condo. It was perfect from the cleanliness, design, location, everything was great! We have 4 kids and enjoyed having room for everyone while being able to look out at the pool when we weren't at the beach. It was also perfect access to the shops / restaurants and was even better to be able to walk there with our 1 yr. old instead of loading all things up in the vehicle to go have fun. We had some questions along the way and Bill & Donna were always quick to respond and help. We'll definitely be back!
