About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Tropical escape at the beach! This Luau studio condo is located on the 4th floor of Luau II, directly overlooking the 4,300 square foot, award winning Luau saltwater pool. With her lush tropical setting and swim behind waterfall, you’ll swear you’re in a tropical destination of the Southern Caribbean. Everyone knows that, in the Luau Towers, “West is Best”, and this unit is a shining example of why. Destin is famous for her sunsets and this Westerly facing unit provides the perfect venue to enjoy a relaxing afternoon cocktail while watching the amazing multi-colored sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico!

Meticulous care went into making this unit a tranquil and inviting space for weary travelers to unwind. In addition to a recent 'facelift', including new flooring, fresh paint and upgraded TV, guests of this unit will enjoy the personalized beach inspired motif which is carried throughout with tropical furnishings and unique touches that make this unit feel like your very own 'home away from home.' With a king-sized bed, a Queen sofa bed, and separate living/dining areas, we can comfortably accommodate a family of four. Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors are your gateway from the living area to your private balcony where you can enjoy those amazing sunset views of which no two are the same, yet all are spectacular. Upgraded amenities unique to this unit include keyless entry (no standing in line for check-in, just drop your things and head straight to the beach!), flat screen TV. A well equipped kitchenette boasts tile countertops and floors, as well as a microwave oven, compact fridge, and sink, and is fully stocked with all dining necessities like plates, glasses and utensils. For your added convenience and enjoyment, we have also secured a private storage area where guests will find beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, and a cooler for your exclusive and unlimited use throughout your stay.

We truly have aspired to make this unit a place that guests will want to visit year after year. Therefore, meticulous care goes into each and every guest experience. The Destin area offers so many unique entertainment options and, unlike dealing with those large conglomerate travel agencies, by working with us you have a real person to assist you in coordinating your family’s dream trip to our amazing beaches. We invite you to come see why viewers of Good Morning America voted Destin as one of their 'Most Beautiful Places”.….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 Destin beaches, Luau combines elegance and simplicity with its Asian-inspired feel.

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 center, 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! When booking directly through the Resort, they will charge you 14% of the total charge for your stay for access to Resort amenities (not an optional charge). IT IS NOT FREE! For most 'free' activities, you will pay an additional fee, even after paying 14% for the amenities card.

We provide many items to our guests for free (really free). However, for those items or activities 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 rate 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 14% 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.

Nice roomy convenient place!

  • 4 of 5

We only stayed two nights, but enjoyed our stay. Bed and pillows were comfy! Rating it 4 stars because there’s no coffee or filters so we bought some. Went to make coffee and the the cleaning folks never threw out the last filter/grounds and it was all moldy...not sure how long it was in there. Also the coffee pot wasn’t clean and one of the coffee cups wasn’t washed well either. Other than that it was great and we enjoyed it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for adding another positive review to our 30+ others! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in our unit! In addition to a great location and view, vacation’s require getting good rest. So, we were elated you found the bed and pillows to be so comfy! The condition you found the coffee pot in is concerning for me because we had recently had the unit deep-cleaned, and the cleaning staff clearly overlooked it. I appreciate your bringing this to my attention as I will definitely address it with them. Regarding the absence of coffee in the unit, while I understand some hotels provide coffee, creamer, etc., please note that it is not the norm for private owners to provide such items. Thanks again for your positive review, and we hope to host your family in the future!

Beautiful! The beach is an easy walk! First family vacation and it was the best! Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

The view is perfect. It on looks the pool and to the left you can see the ocean. I guess there was a wedding or something and one night there was lots of fireworks! Shops are really close by. Lots to go check out. Fat Daddys is close by! Should def check that out. Overall the best vacation I've personally ever went on and I'm glad my daughter was old enough to remember it all.
