Property description


This 5th floor gorgeous unit is the largest two bedroom floor plan at Westwinds. 1370 Square Feet end unit with many large windows. It has an unusually open, airy feel, with more great views: the Gulf of Mexico, the beautiful coastline to the West, and the swaying palms over the Westwinds pool and Sandestin® Beach Club.

BOTH bedrooms have king size beds, and are directly gulf front, approximately the same size and the master bedroom has a private sliding door to the lanai. The guest room has floor to ceiling windows for that amazing gulf view as well. Each bedroom has it's own bath with an extra sink area in the guest wing. Guests share the guest room bath via the hallway, not through the bedrooms as some Westwinds bathrooms require.

The spacious lanai has sliding doors which open into the living room and the master bedroom. The views from the lanai are of the Gulf of Mexico to the South and also the beach looking west for gorgeous sunsets!

All rooms have HDTV flat screen TVs and DVD players. Both Full Bathrooms have Tub/Showers.

This is a popular requested rental with a large kitchen and all new stainless steel appliances. New Bedroom furniture, new dining room set, gorgeous new living room rug A stack washer/dryer is provided for you in the unit, along with several large closets.

A queen sleeper sofa in the living room supplements the 2 bedrooms, so the unit can sleep an additional two children.

We also provide free WIFI internet in the unit.

Complimentary Beach Chairs, Umbrellas, and Beach toys are in the unit for your use, or you can rent Sandestin® Beach Setups using your credit card.

There is an onsite tiki hut which is staffed seasonally with food and drinks, no need to leave the pool for lunch. They accept cash or credit cards as well. Or cook your own food with the Bar-B-Que grills provided on the West Side lawn.

The adults only hot tub is secluded in the rocks, and the heated lagoon style pool and kiddie pool are attractively landscaped. Both pools are heated year round.

The fitness center is provided for our adult guests and faces the pool and the gulf.

Westwinds also has conference facilities for meetings and receptions.

24x7 Security is provided for the safety of your vacation experience. The building is secured by gates and building lock codes to assure you have a comfortable and safe vacation.

We also now have Pickle Ball. Several types of courts are available and reservations are made through the Tennis Center.

Sandestin® Golf and Beach Resort is a 2400 acre community with activities and restaurants on both the beach side and the bay side for your daytime and evening entertainment.

All transactions are conducted via email except for payment. Arrival Documents will be emailed to you once final payment is received. Accepted forms of payment are personal check or paypal only, no credit cards.

We have a 3 night minimum stay. Peak season confirmation for less than 7 nights during June and July will be considered on an individual basis. This leaves dates on each side of the weekend available for guests with longer vacation plans

You will have free tram transportation throughout the resort. Identification and routes will be in each unit for you to use during your stay. The Sand Dollar Tram stops at the ground level of Westwinds just outside the door, very convenient, and no walking to a stop along the road.

This unit is a non-smoking unit, and guests must be 25 years of age or older to rent. No rental guest pets are allowed and we can make no exceptions.

We require a $200 refundable confirmation/damage deposit ($300 for extended stays and Snowbird season) which must be received within 7 days of booking to reserve the unit, and full payment is due 30 days prior to arrival or we can meet you for short notice arrivals. Cleaning is additional and varies per length of stay.

There are no keys to mail, very convenient. Our Rental Manager lives at the Resort so will be available to attend to your needs and concerns.

Please give us a try, you will have an amazing vacation. Thanks for looking!

Cancellation policy: a $100 cancellation penalty may be taken if the unit is canceled before final payment. After final payment has been made you will forfeit the deposit if the unit cannot be re-rented for the same dates.
