About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Free beach service, chairs and umbrella set up!

Come and see why families choose Landon by the Sea year after year for their Destin vacation. This luxury townhome is located on the Gulf of Mexico and on Scenic Highway 98. Nestled between the sand dunes and sea oats, this exclusive and spacious townhome offers spectacular Gulf views. Simply walk right out onto the beach! Landon by the Sea sits directly on the beach & is conveniently located near shops and restaurants. Unit #4 is a 2 bedroom-3 bath newly renovated luxury townhome located directly on the beach. The lower level has a fully equipped kitchen and screened in porch that opens up to the beach. The upper level features two bedrooms, each with a private bath. The master bedroom has a king size bed, jacuzzi bubble tub with Gulf view, and a gulf-front balcony. There is also a king size bed in the guest bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room. There is high speed wireless Internet access and large LCD televisions throughout.

Landon is a Gulf front spacious town home (not a condo), with no one living above or below you. Park your car at the front door, three steps and you're walking in the kitchen.

Most Landon guests are looking to upgrade from a condo building, but avoid the cost of a private home. Condos are the cheapest lodging option, but with condo's come huge parking lots, long walks to elevators with suitcases/groceries, kids with those floating noodles wacking you in the elevator, and hundreds of people usually on a small section of beach (you get the point). Private homes are the nicest option, but very expensive (the home next to us rents for over $10,000 week in the summer).

Our Home Away from Home

My husband and I purchased these townhomes with my parents in January of 2010. We bought them because it is in the perfect location. The townhome is right on the beach and away from the crowded condo mega complexes. Landon by the Sea has its own 100 foot stretch of beach. However, it is still a very short drive to restaurants, shopping and the outlet mall. We are within walking distance of the Whales Tail restaurant and Pompano Joes. We did extensive renovations to Unit four and it has a new kitchen, new bathrooms and travertine tile throughout. We have other units (1, 2 and 3) available if you have a larger party. These units feature the same views and spacious layout.. Call or e-mail for details. We invite you to choose our home away from home and know you will enjoy it as much as we have. If you have any questions, or need something to make your stay more enjoyable please do not hesitate to e-mail or call us.

Why The Owner chose Miramar Beach

We have been coming to Destin for over twenty five years. The star attraction for Destin is the white sandy beaches. When looking for our home away from home we had to be right on our own sandy beach in the heart of Destin. We also like being close to the outlet mall and the restaurants in Sandestin. Avoiding the traffic of downtown Destin was also a key reason we chose this location on the eastern end of town.

What makes this townhome unique

We enjoy playing on the beach and swimming in the warm Gulf waters. At night we sit on our balcony and listen to the waves of the Gulf. We enjoy the serenity of the location with the convenience of shopping and restaurants just a short drive away. We often walk to Pompano Joes or The Whales Tail for lunch or dinner and walk on the beach back home. We enjoy using the bike path right outside our door to ride up and down Scenic Gulf Drive. Fishing right outside your front door just can't be beat.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Landon by the sea unit 4 was fantastic! The unit was clean and ready by check in time. Everything was as described and had everything you would need. Close to everything. The beach was clean and not crowded. There is 2 chairs and an umbrella rental included but not listed! We had one issue with a tv going out and the management company was there within a couple hrs and quickly replaced it the same day! It was just a fantastic vacation spot and cannot wait to return!

PHENOMENAL beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was beautiful with wonderful decor and housing items (comfy beds!) and made you feel very much at home with all of the amenities of home in the kitchen (also loved the movies and games - spent a few family nights together with these items). We spent an entire week at the beach in this house (and did not want to leave!), which provided a closet full of beach items/toys for both adults and kids (a nice surprise)! We were able to add some items to the stock that we purchased across the street and left for future guests as a token of our appreciation. We cooked family meals to include big breakfasts and dinners, which we ate while sitting on the screen enclosed patio every morning and evening to enjoy the beautiful ocean view less than 150 yards from our back patio door!! Spent all day every day on the beach enjoying the ocean and sun with great novels and time with our kiddos snorkeling and building sand castles. We took walks down the beach, watched the sunsets in beach chairs with a few glasses of wine, caught sand crabs in the evenings, and enjoyed the sound of the ocean from the master bedroom balcony at night after the kids were in bed!!!! :) A wonderful place to spend our first blended-family vacation where we also took our first family portraits ... right on the beach and in the ocean; awesome!!!!!! We could not have asked for a better place to stay and make memories together. Also - booking the rental with the owner was very easy and informative - great customer service; and the rental management company was very professional and secure. The property was very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed Fudpuckers restaurant one evening out on the town. We have already recommended this property to our friends and family members; and plan to vacation here another year if not every year - we LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!!!!!!

There is a water park nearby called Big Kahunas which is perfect for small children as well as teenagers. There is a go-cart fun park with small amusement rides for kids as well as miniature golf. The scenic Gulf Drive bike and running path is right outside our front door. One mile away is great shopping at the local outlet mall.
