About the property

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

Convenient second floor location means easy access to everything! This large 1BR unit is beautifully equipped with everything you would need for an amazing coastal vacation! Upgraded amenities include keyless entry (no standing in line for check-in), a full kitchen with tile and granite countertops, full-sized electric range with a 4 burner cook top, full sized microwave oven, full sized refrigerator/freezer with automatic icemaker (very important on those balmy beach days!), dishwasher, washer/dryer, and two televisions, 1 BlueRay and 1 DVD player. In keeping with the local flavor, guests will enjoy a relaxing, beach inspired motif which is carried throughout with elegant and inviting furnishings with personal touches that make the unit feel like your very own 'home away from home.' With a king-sized bed and a pull out queen sofa bed in the Living Room, there is plenty of room for the kids or additional friends! Floor to ceiling sliding glass doors are your gateway from the living area to your large, private patio with table and chairs. Head down to the award winning, 4300 sqft Luau saltwater pool and waterfall, which has consistently been voted “best in the Resort” since its opening in 2007. But, don’t worry about encountering a crowd, because the Luau pool is one of only a few pools in the Resort that is restricted to only those guests of Luau itself. This means extra protection and security for the kids, as well as no over-crowding. The Luau pool is also one of the only pools in the Resort with a snack and tiki bar. Burger, beer, a sweet snack….it’s all right here! But, 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, our owner's storage locker has also been stocked with beach chairs, an umbrella, and coolers for your exclusive and unlimited use throughout your stay.

We truly aspire to make our units 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 experiences 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 beautiful beaches. 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. Sandestin is truly the premiere vacation playground on the Emerald Coast!

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 location

  • 5 of 5

The Luau is great building to stay in and this unit on the second floor is the best option. Close to parking garage for unloading. The storage with all beach equipment is close to elevator and parking garage. Skip the elevator and take the Stairs for a quick way to go in and out back to the pool for a quick bite or drink. There's nice, clean and spacious bathrooms close to the pool also so you don't have to go back to condo. The stroll to the beach is not bad at all. Owner had in storage 3 beach chairs/ one regular and one small umbrella, 2 boogie boards a small cooler and some beach toys, listing items in case you need to bring more than that. Ice machine is in tower II on parking level so you can fill your ice chest.

Shannon was a pleasure to deal with. Clear instructions and Quick responses to my questions.

Tram service from Luau to Baytown wharf is a great plus. I asked tram driver and he said they run all year long.

The small tiki bar was closing for the season this labor day weekend.

Interior of condo is just like the pics. I imagine it's all the original furniture but it's well maintained. Maybe the carpet needs deep cleaning and some of the walls need to be spot cleaned but nothing major. We spent most of our time outdoors so it didn't matter. Bring pillows if you like more than one and traveling with a family Of 4. Spacious bathroom, towels and TP provided. All dishes, pots, pans to cook, use and bake what you need. Bring dish liquid to wash dishes. Awesome water pressure :) . Provided one pack of dishwashing soap for dishwasher and one roll of paper towel. Nice size patio with table and 4 chairs and view from unit is nice landscaping. The entire Sandestin location is very nice. Pleasant to

Walk around all the grounds, very clean and very nice landscaping with little paths to follow for a nice stroll. Will definitely look forward to staying there again.

More pros than cons

  • 4 of 5

The only downsides to this place was the furniture being old- mainly the couch having stains and no comfy living room furniture for lounging. Stiff, hard couches and chairs. The walls were dirty too.

There were no necessities such as laundry or dish soap, but thankfully we read this in another review and were prepared.

Excellent location and there was a service that rented baby equipment which was a huge help!

Great condo for the price!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time traveling to Destin. We had been hearing so much about it, we decided to see for ourselves! Sandestin is a huge huge property with beautiful grounds. The Luau is one of the few resorts in Sandestin that is closest to the beach. So off course it was way more affordable than staying at a hotel that's right on the beach per say. You're basically paying a few hundred more just for the view! So Luau was the next best thing. The walk to the beach was not bad at all. Less than 5 minutes from our condo. We loved the fact that there was a free shuttle service so it was very easy to get to the store, the shops, and all the restaurants at Baytowne Wharf. The condo was also perfect for our little family of 4. It was clean and right on the 2nd floor so it was super easy to get to the pool. Stairs were right around the corner so no need to wait for the slow elevators (yes, you need to avoid these elevators by all means!) We also loved the fact that there was a washer and dryer in the unit, so that was a huge plus. At the beach, you have to have a washer and dryer to clean all the towels and bathing suits used during the week! It was also nice to have access to beach umbrellas, chairs, and cooler for FREE!! That itself will save you a ton of money as opposed to renting the umbrellas and chairs on the beach. Also, if you are staying at this condo be prepared to shop for everything from trash bags, dish detergent, clothes detergent, kitchen cleaner, sponge, hand soap, sugar, salt, pepper, etc! There is nothing in the unit other than a paper towel roll and some toilet paper. So be prepared for that extra expense. It is well worth it though! Also Sharon, the manager, is wonderful to work with. She was very responsive before and during our stay and did a great job at recommending things such as crib rentals, bike rentals, restaurants, etc... We look forward to coming to Sandestin again and off course, staying at the Luau!

This condo is really clean and comfortable. The view is not so great, but the second floor location is ideal for quick access to the pool.
