Why Andree McDonald chose Miramar Beach

Destin offers the most beautiful beaches along the coast. Sugar white sand and emerald green waters. We purchased this property in 2009 and have been so happy with our decision. And 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.

And if you need a few things, you don't have to venture far at all. There is a grocery store, restaurants, a beach store all right outside the gates of the hidden gem.

Perfect condo for a week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Andree was amazing to work with and as expected the condo met every need and then some! Warm and inviting from the moment we walked in. The unit had so many extra touches that you don’t get when staying at a condo managed by a company. Closet stocked with everything you need for the beach - toys, cooler, extra chairs, beach cart. This unit is very well cared for. The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were luxurious - I want a set for my home!

The unit is very convenient to all areas of the property. Quick walk to the beach or the pool. Stay here - you won’t regret it!

Wonderful vacation in Destin

We had a wonderful time on our Destin vacation. This is the best maintained, best stocked, cleanest condo we have ever rented in Destin. I would highly recommend it to anyone and fully intend to deal with this owner again when we come back to Destin.

Thanks again for everything!

A great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! It was a perfect location across from the outlet malls and easy to get to. The covered parking, pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, basketball goal, and hot tub were great amenities to use as well. I loved that it wasn't a huge high rise full of people. The unit itself was very nice with great features. Both bedrooms have king size beds and plenty of space in them. The entire unit is up to date. One of our favorite features was the murphy bed in the living room area. That bed was so comfortable and the kids loved it! We had plenty of space!! The balcony faces the pool area and the ocean. The entire condo area was well kept and just a short walk from the unit to be on the beach. And most importantly, the owners of this unit were very kind and professional to deal with. They always replied in a timely manner and were always so kind! It was a joy to work with them and we would be more than happy to stay here again, or in another condo that they own as well. Thank you so much for opening your home to us!!

Clean, plush bedding and fully stocked amenities

  • 5 of 5

I'm my 20 plus years of coming to Destin in staying many nice condos---I rank this condo as first in a long line of condos. The biggest win for us was the nice plush bedding and towels. Typically, you get the floral cheap comforters that feel water resistant and gross. The 2nd bedroom also had a king bed which is the main reason why we picked this condo. And an added bonus--- A Murphy bed that comes down off the wall in the living room. Surprisingly, that bed has the best mattress if all. The oversized living room fit the living room furniture and the queen size Murphy bed with plenty of room.

Also, fully stocked board games , beach toys and kitchen spices for cooking.

Another thing I loved is that it's not overcrowded there

Oh yeah, and two beach chairs and umbrella is set up for you each day. This is included it with your weekly rental at the condo. Typically, when you stay other places it cost you $25 a day. That a nice bonus that is included in the condo. Yes, we will be back!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for ranking us as one of your "top" condo rentals. We are very honored especially since you're such a "beach condo rental" veteran. We agree that our condo is excellent for 2 couples or families since we have the 2 king bedrooms and the comfortable queen Murphy bed. Our location, beach and proximity to stores and things to do cannot be beat! Hope to have your toes back in the sand with us soon!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Florida and we were not disappointed. The condo was the perfect size for our family, we were very comfortable and enjoyed the decor. The entire property was well maintained and the condo was clean and ready for our arrival. The view of the Gulf from our balcony was beautiful and we enjoyed the short walk to the white sand beach and clear warm water. Because this was our first time in Florida I had many questions about our vacation stay and the owner was extremely accessible and a pleasure to work with through the entire process. The location of the condo was perfect for shopping and activities for our family. We fed alligators, went parasailing and also did zip lining. I would definitely recommend this condo to others and will keep it in mind for future Florida vacations!
