Nestled on 2400 acres of spectacular beach and bay-front-only 8 miles east of Destin, Sandestin offers something for everyone. You could spend your entire vacation here. It offers everything you need for a memorable visit-four award-winning golf courses, numerous neighborhood pools, world-class dining and shopping, spa services and more. The sweeping Choctawhatchee Bay is world-renowned for its excellent fishing, sailing, boating, dolphin-watching, and eco tours.

This lovely pet-welcoming villa has a magnificent view of the adjacent lake, golf course and picturesque bay in the distance. The newly remodeled eat-in kitchen is perfect for creating memorable vacation meals and is beautifully finished with wide expanses of granite countertops, wooden cabinets, stainless under-mount sink, large bar that seats three, and it features a breakfast nook with bistro table. The dining options continue out on the screened porch and large deck with grill, overlooking the lake and golf course.

After enjoying a day at the beach, the pool, sailing, fishing, or playing a round of golf on one of Sandestin's four award-winning courses, grill some fresh, local seafood and relax on the plush, comfy sofa. Curl up together and watch a movie or your favorite show or sporting event on the large flat-screen TV. And best of all, there is no need to leave your furry children behind--we are PET-WELCOMING!

Rest in comfort in either of the two Master suites, both containing king-sized beds. The sophistication continues in the newly remodeled baths with dark cabinetry and updated fixtures and details. Rollaway beds are also available for extra sleeping options.

The huge laundry room ensures that you can travel home with clean clothes. But we warn you-you may not want to leave!

Sandestin Resort features many amenities including use of the owners' pools, a large private beach with access to the Finz Bar and Grill, biking trails, marina, and the shops and restaurants at the Village of Baytowne Wharf.

So bring the whole family-including FIDO, and enjoy coastal living at its very best.

Nice property but needs some maintenance

  • 3 of 5

We always love staying in the wharf and we vacation 2-3 times a year, this was our second time staying in this rental. We truly loved the property and had no issues last year; this year we noticed several maintenance issues that really needs attention. My husband met the owner a couple times during the stay, he was getting stuff out of the outside storage and he seems very nice. Recommendations for maintenance is pest control (several large cockroaches we killed and termite damage around house), mold spots around master shower ledge, water spots in both bathrooms on ceiling (not sure if mold), all outlets need changed (all very loose and cords fall out during getting ready with blow dryer and cords by bed cellphone charger falls out, lights plugged into wall flicker if you move wrong on bed because the outlets are so loose), and A new dryer I had to run the dryer on 80 minutes three times to complete my load and have dry laundry 😞�

Loved the location. Happy we could bring our dogs. Neighborhood was great to walk the dogs except neighbors apparently feed feral cats and excited the dogs a lot. Cats all over the place on roofs of houses on cars. I love cats but at one time we counted 10. Loved riding around in golf cart, although was very slow for traffic we mainly rode on trails of golf course. This house would be so much better with a little loving care. All in all we would come back.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time here. Unit was clean and spacious for our family of 6, plus our fur baby. Plenty of linens for the roll away beds and blow up mattress if needed. Loved the screened in porch, and the deck overlooking the golf course was awesome. Our puppy loved watching the ducks and turtles swim in the evening. Nice pet friendly community. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Definitely would stay here again.

nice place, nice location

  • 3 of 5

This was a nice home in a nice location. We had a nice stay, and would consider staying here again. We would consider this place again if they fixed some of the issues.

1. Check-in 4pm is too late... And unfortunately the cleaning people didn't leave until 5:30pm. This was very inconvenient.

2. Golf Cart: top speed 11mph... actually causes a danger due to all the cars (and golf carts) passing you. We actually got passed by kids on bikes. Battery took forever to charge and died quickly. Headlights had a short in them.. didn't work or could not shut them off. Cause a hazard when driving at night.

3. Wifi: did not work. Had to go elsewhere to do work.

4. Broken doorknob to back patio and drying did not work very well at all. Took hours to dry towels.

-I emailed to company to ask for some sort of compensation due to our 5:30pm check-in, (and I listed all the other issues) but I did not receive a reply.

There were no MAJOR issues, just quiet a few that added up to many inconveniences.

I would stay again if those are addressed ( and a new golf cart)
