About Gina G Hammond & Frank Garavelli

I am a retired owner of my own business. Started vacationing in Sandestin in 2007 and decided to invest in a condo so I could enjoy my retirement. I currently own 3 units. One is in Pilot House and the other two are in Observation Point North. My daughter Gina handles the renting of our units and will be happy to help you.

Why Gina G Hammond & Frank Garavelli chose Sandestin

My family and friends love the Destin and Miramar Beach area. It's a great place for families or special events.

What makes this condo unique

It is wonderful to be able to walk to restaurants, shopping and much more and not have to worry about traffic or parking. Also having a ground floor unit allows you to walk right into the building from the parking garage and not have to take an elevator.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time visit Baytowne and Sandestin for the Fourth of July. The village has a spectacular fireworks show for the kids and lots of fun activities. Our boys had such fun on the beach and all the activities in and around Sandestin. We will be back again and plan to stay in Pilot House. Having this unit on the first floor made it so easy with young children not having to take the elevator.

Perfect in every way.

We had the best time! Your condo fit our family's needs perfectly. Loved the separation of bedrooms. My boys basically took over their side of the unit and loved having their own space. The location is ideal and although I was initailly comcerned about it being a ground floor unit, we rarely heard our neighbors above. Easy 10 min to the beach. Pool close by. Very relaxing. And Baytowne had activities all week that the kids loved. So convenient to everything. I walked out from the condo two mornings and grabbed coffee and donuts at the shop on the corner. Dangerously close 😋?. We had a great meal at Marlins Grill, grabbed tacos at the Lazy Gecko and baked pizzas at the condo. Dining area is a good size. Comfortable furniture and enough space to spread out when watching a movie. I can not thank you enough for providing the perfect vacation spot for us. This was by far one if the best vacations we have had. Thank you. We hope to book with you again!

nice place

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice place. It could use some extra cleaning as far as the exhaust fan in the big bathroom and the lights over the vanity in the bathroom and all door facings on the top need dusting.
