About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Simply stunning is the only way to describe this impeccable 2 bedroom/2.5 bath Luau unit. Situated high atop Luau Tower 1, on the 11th floor, this unit boasts absolutely breathtaking views of the white sandy beaches of TopS’l State Park, as well as a panoramic view of Choctaw Bay and Sandestin Resort. This is truly the high life! With a unique lock-out floor plan, the unit is actually two condos in one. From the private foyer, to your left you will enter a separate, studio suite which includes a fully stocked kitchenette with a mini-fridge, mini-microwave, and sink. This separate suite has it’s own private bath and sitting area and includes a King bed, twin sleeper/sofa, TV and DVD. Heading back out to the foyer and taking another left, you will enter the main living area which includes an open lay-out featuring a full kitchen, dining room, living room, breakfast bar and half-bath. There is absolutely no way to describe the views from this area of the condo, just take a look at our photographs! The main kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare the day’s meals, including all appliances, dishes, utensils, pots/pans, small appliances, etc. Dividing the kitchen and living area is a granite breakfast bar with stools. Relax on the chaise sofa and catch the game on your 55” inch flat screen, or just while away the hours with a good book while enjoying a spectacular view of the shimmering emerald waters of the gulf! The dining area boasts a beautiful and modern six person dining suite and is the gateway to your large, private wrap-around balcony. Discerning travelers will enjoy the luxurious upscale décor of this lovingly kept condominium (the owners actually do spend vacations here). Upgraded amenities include keyless entry (no standing in line for check-in), a full kitchen with tile and granite surfaces, full-sized electric range with a 4 burner cook top, full sized microwave oven, full sized refrigerator/freezer with automatic icemaker, dishwasher, full sized LG front loading washer/dryer, side table clock/radio/iPod (in studio suite), three televisions (55” flat-screen in LR) and 3 DVD players (in LR and BR’s). If the beach is what you are longing for, Sandestin's private beach is a 3 minute stroll down a private path. For your added convenience, we have also stocked our owner's storage area with a beach cart, chairs, umbrellas, boogie board, beach toys, and cooler for your exclusive and unlimited use throughout your stay. If only the best will do, this is the one.

It is our desire to create a place where guests can realize a unique and memorable vacation experience that will keep them coming back year after year. Therefore, luxury and convenience, coupled with a true desire to anticipate every need of the vacationer, are of the utmost importance. We feel confident those aspirations have been met and we invite you to come feel the inspiration only a place so beautiful can bring….the sand looks like sugar, the sea like emeralds and the sunsets like heaven.

Luau is the newest of Sandestin’s luxury beachside properties. Located across the street from Finz restaurant and a stone's throw to the world-renowned beaches, Luau combines elegance and simplicity with its Asian-inspired feel. Luau is located just across the street from the Sandestin Hilton.

Nestled on 2,400 acres of spectacular beaches and bayfront, Sandestin is like a world of its own. Sandestin guests don’t have to be a kid to act like one. Indulge in endless resort amenities, from four championship golf courses – making it one of the top Florida golf resorts, 15 world-class tennis courts, full-service marina, water sports, charter sailing and fishing, boutique, designer and outlet shopping, fine and casual dining, state-of-the-art fitness centers, professional salon and day spa and fun children’s programs. In addition, the Village of Baytowne Wharf, on the bayside of the resort, brings another dimension to Sandestin's incredible popularity with endless choices of restaurants and entertainment. Also on the bay side of the resort is the Grande Boulevard area which includes additional restaurant and shopping choices, as well as a Publix shopping center.

DO NOT FALL FOR THE AMENITIES CARD MYTH! The Resort will charge you 12% of the total charge for your stay for access to Resort amenities (not an optional charge). IT IS NOT FREE! If booking through the Resort you will pay a fee for most 'free' amenities, even after paying for the amenities card.

We provide many items to our guests for free (really free). However, for those we do not provide, all guests are given a list of local contacts who can provide you with many activities/services at a rate lower than the Resort will charge you for those same 'free' services.

For example; beach Set-ups are $30 per day, per person through the Resort and include chair and umbrella. We provide all of our guests unlimited use of our beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys and cooler for free!

Resort guests pay the 12% fee for access to Sandestin Fitness Center and Pools. The Luau fitness center and pool is FREE and is restricted to Luau guests only, so no overcrowding and heightened level of security.

Great Vacay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Luau 7109. The room was very spacious. High floor provided great view of coastline and beach. Short walk to the beach and to tram pick up for Baytown Wharf. There were plenty of beach chairs/umbrellas for use provided by the unit -- we had brought our own and used them but will know for next time! Very convenient to have access to beach supplies and not have to pack.

Pool was GREAT!! Very large and not overcrowded as other resorts usually are. My girls loved the pool which came in handy due to June grass present on beach.

We had a great time and will definitely return!

Owner's Response: We strive to provide an accurate representation of properties, and photos on VRBO page are from inside the actual unit itself. As is further confirmed in other guest reviews, this condo offers beautiful views from every window. Like most condominium neighborhoods, Luau does have parking garages attached to lowest floors. However, being on the 11th floor, you would need to be at window, looking down to see them.

Great Location, Great Condo, Great Manager

  • 5 of 5

I just spend 6 days renting in Panama City and it was over populated and ran down from spring breakers. So, I has my reservations when moving to this condo. My family and I could not have been more pleased. The location on the resort of Sandestin was absolutely perfect. The condo we stayed in was perfect. it was on the 11th floor. High enough to drown out any noise, but not too high for waiting for the elevator. The view of the beach was great. The whole building was clean and enough covered parking for everyone. The condo was completely and felt new. I can't say enough for the manager. She was always there to answer my simple questions. She helped us when we needed to check in early. I would recommend her to any of my family and/or friends who are heading in that direction. We'll definitely be calling her again in the future.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing visit in this beautiful condo! Thanks for sharing it with us. (By the way, if I could've figured out a way to strap the washer/dryer to my car, they'd have come home with me. Ha!)
