About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This spacious condo is one of the largest two bedroom units in Mainsail. It is our second home and we would like you to enjoy it with us. Our family has owned this condo since the mid-eighties, and we have enjoyed every minute of our time here. Unit 238 is on the third floor of beach front building #2 overlooking the White Sands and Blue Water of the lovely Gulf of Mexico and Miramar Beach. View the gulf (from the balcony or living room) while watching the kids play in the Newly Renovated Pool Area Complete with Water Fall and Large Hot Tub.

This is our Beach House. We enjoy our time on the Beautiful Beaches, but if you get the itch to shop/eat you are a short walk or car ride from Silver Sands Outlet Mall and many of Destin’s nicer restaurants. However, if you want to stay inside you can enjoy the newly decorated surroundings and incredible views. As an added bonus, if you want to cook at home, you can walk out to the New Grilling Patio (by the pool) while the kids enjoy the video game room. After dinner work off your meal in the workout area or grab a racquet for a game of tennis.

When you walk in the condo, you are at the beach. The master features a king bed with a spacious bathroom and LCD TV/DVD. It opens onto the balcony. The guestroom is decorated with twin beds, LCD TV/DVD, and plenty of closet and dresser space. Our living room is huge and has a queen sofa bed, LCD TV, and DVD player. The dining area offers a table with seating for 6 and breakfast bar. Our newly decorated kitchen is fully equipped, and the cabinets and Corian counters add to your beach experience.

Had a great time

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I had a girls' trip and enjoyed our time at the beach. The condo worked out great, right on the beach with a great view. It was stocked with everything we needed and then some. The beds were comfortable, which is a big plus! The bathrooms could use a bit of a facelift, but were very clean and adequate. We loved our stay at the Mainsail and would definitely rent this unit again!

Perfect location for families!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Destin and renting this Unit was great. The owners were wonderful! The place is very clean and the kitchen is well supplied. We have an 8yo, 4yo and 11mo and the location to the beach was perfect plus the kiddie pool and splash area was a nice addition. The grocery store is just around the corner!

If I had to state a negative it would be the 2 beach chairs and umbrella that comes with the unit. They have the front ones saved for owners or large groups and you aren't allowed to move the umbrella so it didn't benefit us with the little ones wanting to be in the water or at the waters edge.

Overall I hope to be back next summer!!

Great Condo for our family of 5, 3 Minute Walk to Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo with our 3 young children (ages 3, 5, & 7). It is close to the elevator on the 3rd floor. Once downstairs, it's a 2 minute walk to the boardwalks that lead to the beach. The umbrella & 2 beach chairs provided by Mainsail were fantastic for us - this eliminated the need for the tent we brought with us. The view was spectacular, overlooking both the beach & the pool. This was helpful when making decisions about where to spend our time next! Kitchen is fully stocked - we specifically used some pans, dishes, Tupperware, blender, ice maker, etc. Plenty of clean towels & linens. Master bedroom was very spacious, with drapes that kept light out. The front bedroom with the twin beds was very bright in the mornings, so we hung a blanket over the window for our 2 young boys. We were expecting a pull-out couch; instead, there are 2 rollaway beds available that we set up in the living room each night. We rarely saw or heard anyone in neighboring condos, making it a very quiet stay. Covered parking for visitors. Not really within walking distance of anything with our young children, though adults could probably walk to the grocery store or outlets (across the main road) in about 10-15 minutes. A short drive to a few local restaurants in Miramar Beach (including the Sandestin's Baytowne Wharf). With mid-June Destin traffic, it took us about 20-25 minutes to get to Destin Harbor (HarborWalk Village.) The Mainsail complex was very secure. The pool area was clean, tennis courts looked well-maintained, & the fitness center was decent (treadmills are a bit outdated.) The owner was available via text to answer questions, and did so in a timely manner. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and would absolutely return to this condo at Mainsail!

The property was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this condo! The size and location are great. There are 6 beds that can easily accommodate 7 people. The view is amazing from the balacony. I like how we could get 2 chairs and an umbrella on the beach. The fact that this condo is in a gated community made me feel very safe. The hot tub was a great way to warm up after a chill dip in the ocean. The kitchen has everything you need! Overall, this was a perfect place for us to stay! We loved it!

Great place. Accessible host.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the condo very much. It was clean and well-stocked with towels and wash cloths. I appreciate that there were paper towels and soap already there since we flew in for just a few days and didn't want to buy something we would never use up. The host, Dawn, was wonderful and checked in on us via text to make sure we had everything we needed. The ocean view was great; and the beach chairs made all the difference for us!

A relaxing Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 2 high school aged kids visited over Spring Break to relax and spend time together before our daughter goes off to college. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit.....wish we could have stayed longer! The condo was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed with more than enough room for the four of us. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the view of the beach from the balcony in the mornings. The 3 minute walk from our condo door to sitting on the beach with our toes in the sand was great and so convenient for taking walks on the beach or heading to the beach at different times. The beach is very clean as well as the property of Mainsail. It is nice and family friendly. We also like the location as it is away from the busy part of Destin. We walked around the outlet mall, walked to get frozen yogurt, played putt putt nearby and watched movies in the evenings. Plenty of places nearby to eat or ate in condo. We had a wonderful,relaxing time in this condo. The owner was very nice and quick to respond to messages. We would definitely stay here again sometime.
