Ted Parks purchased this condo in 2012
The family atmosphere and kindness of this community is unmatched anywhere we have spent vacation. Private and never crowded on the property put in the middle of all you would want to do and see if you want to get out.
Tucked away with a secure private experience but right across the street from outlet malls and anything you would want to do on vacation in the area. Bass pro shop is my favorite however my kids enjoy shopping at Destin commons, outlet mall and the movie theater.
We entered and found roaches in living room. We thought it was perhaps from previous occupants. Exterminator came but we continued to see bugs periodically throughout our one-month stay. I regret giving a negative review but this was unacceptable. Mainsail facility itself is older but well maintained.
Sandy white beach
Spectacular sunrises and sunsets
Two beach chairs and an umbrella make this property a Beach Lovers dream come true. From the minute we arrive till our departure everything was perfect. Once we went to the grocery store we hardly ever left the property. The beach service was wonderful--Robert made sure the beach chairs were set up from 8-5 every day and Treated us like we were owners. After a day at the beach we would use the pool and hot tub before going up to cook super. The property was built in the middle 80's but has been maintained very well. The staff of the Mainsail were very nice and helpful. From the 8th floor balcony we had a great view of the beach. It also faced the southwest making the view at sunset special. If your an earlier riser all you had to do is walk out the front door to watch the sunrise. Another great asset to this property is the outlet mall right across the street. Several other shopping venues are within 15 minutes. There are many things to do in Destin but we went for the beach and Mainsail gave us what we wanted. Thanks to Ted the owner of the property for making it so easy. He reponded very quickly to all our inquiries. The condo had 3TV's, books to read, a fully equipped kitchen, a bar with ice maker and many other comforts that allow you to kick back and enjoy. And don't over pack--remember it's Florida where casual is cool.
We really enjoyed our stay. Mr. Parks is great to work with. The condo had great views of the beach and pool area.
Beautiful condo, overlooking the beach. Place was clean and we'll kept and nicely decorated. We had minor appliance issue, a few broken knows in washer and dryer which could not be fixed through holiday weekend. No detergent, soaps for dishwasher and laundry. Just need to bring your own. This is why we gave it 3 stars in stead of 4.
Overall, the property was nice. The master bathroom is dark and needs some updating. The rest of the property was bright and look like the pictures shown. It's a short walk to the beautiful beach and the umbrella/chairs are really convenient. I was disappointed that upon our arrival there was laundry to be folded in the dryer, the tub in the master bathroom was dirty and dishes in the cabinet were dirty. The owner did offer to have it cleaned during our stay but that was inconvenient for us as well as we had taken care of everything other than cleaning the tub. Love the area but not necessarily this condo. Pretty pricey for what you get.
Ted was great to work with. Gave us our deposit back within 4 days after our stay. The condo was on the top floor with a great view. Beach access was easy, and the chairs & umbrella from the Mainsail property were provided with the room everyday. The furniture in the condo has been updated but you can tell it was built in the 1980's. The location of the property in close to everything. Never had to drive more than 2 miles to get anything.
1) Sliding Glass door to balcony from the living room would stick severely and took a lot of force to open. None of the women on the trip could open the door.
2) Master bathroom Sliding Glass door was off its track and even fell off into the bath tub one time.
3) My mother complained of the comfort of the twin beds she sleep on.
4) Was given an excessive detailed 6 step guide to clean up condo before we left. I totally understand taking the trash out and putting the dirty towel in washer, and just overall straightening up the condo. But their list was a little much since you already are paying a cleaning fee.
Area attractions appeal to every member of the family, including 25 golf courses within 15 miles, chartered deep sea fishing, para sailing, art galleries, the Track Amusement Park, Gulfarium Marine Museum, Big Kahuna's water park and incredible restaurants. Mainsail located across from Silver sands outlet mall.
