Long weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I decided to stay here for Labor Day weekend due to the good reviews and location of this property. It was everything we needed for the weekend and more. The unit was clean and convenient to the beach, only about a 5 minute walk. We will definitely be coming back and staying at this one of the other units Marcella has!

Exactly As Avertised

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I attend an annual conference at the Sandestin Hilton and prefer to stay away from crazy pace of the hotel. We decided to stay at The Luau due to the proximity of the hotel. It is literally a 5 minute walk through the parking lot to the Hilton. The room was exactly as promised. It even had available beach chairs and umbrellas, which came in very handy. The pool was beautiful and there was ample parking, both covered and outdoors.

We loved the stay, the room , and the area.

  • 4 of 5

Marcella was amazing! She accommodated us when our timing was a little off. The pictures were exactly what the room looked like. The only negatives had nothing to do with Marcella. The resort had trash everywhere. There were beer cans, bottles, clothing , and excessive trash on the walk to the beach. We would recommend!

Perfect location, fine rental!

  • 5 of 5

Luau was in the perfect location for us - right behind the Hilton where my son and family were staying! The elevators were fast, were rarely a wait, the condo is right beside the elevator, but we never heard it. The small kitchenette is stocked with the basic needs - I didn't want to cook any entire meals with so many great places to eat nearby! The pool at Luau is great. There were always places to park (take the gate code with you to get back in!) I can't really think of anything serious enough to prevent you from choosing this affordable rental !

Room was clean and arrival/departure instructions were thorough.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo and will likely return to the same or a similar place next year. As long as you understand that this is a condo and not a hotel with a large front desk/customer service staff, you will be happy with the amenities of this condo. It was exactly as described.
