Luau at Sandestin
Great stay over the week of July 4th. Great location and just a short walk to the beach. Baytowne wharf was amazing and great for kids. Great food all around. Will definitely return!
My sister and I enjoyed our stay here. We never had to leave the Miramar Beach area. Everything we needed was within a few miles without having to go into Destin. Quite area without all the traffic. Condo was as pictured. Not much of a beach view but I knew that going in from the pictures posted. The walk to the beach wasn’t that bad. We did have a confusing time trying to find the tram. The signs are misleading. We ended up taking an Uber to Baytowne but rode the tram back and figured out where the stop is. Overall the trip was very good and we even got to see a beautiful fireworks show that was on the beach from our balcony.
Thank you for taking time to review your stay. We will talk to Sandestin about making the signage for the Trams easier to follow! We agree that the fireworks are awesome. Beach Escapes would love to have you back anytime!
Nice place to stay it does needs some up date and apt floors where not clean
Cheap and Nice Place to Stay
I stayed here and it was great! Cheap and a close walk to the beach. LOVED the pool! It's saltwater. Spent a lot of time out there. Short walk to the beach and there is another pool that is right on the beach. Didn't like that pool so much but, that was because it was busier. A few things that bothered me: it was a puzzle to figure out the remotes that worked with what tv and DVD player. They give a guide in a handbook but, that was not so helpful. That is a small thing... very small. The view is not really a view it's to a parking lot or other condos and it is right next to a generator so it is loud haha. Don't get me you can still see the ocean and sand but it's in the distance. That's it. Overall, great stay. Again... the pool is awesome.
Very nice place, great location, amazing pool.
My wife and our 4 kids stayed here in June of 2018. The room is essentially two rooms in one as you can lock out one room from another. This unique feature offers plenty of privacy and is perfect for multiple families or parents that would like some privacy from their kids. Each unit had it's own AC controls so that made it nice when we wanted our unit cooler than the other unit. The room itself was very clean, cozy, modern and welcoming. The kitchen is nicely equipped and everything appeared to be fairly new. This unit was very large when compared to other units in the same price range.
The room is located inside of a guarded/gated community. It felt very safe and the guards checked our parking ticket each time we came through, no matter what time of day or night it was. The entire campus of this community was absolutely beautiful.
We spent a lot of time at the main pool. It was a beautiful pool and never once was it overly crowded. There is a little tiki hut at the main pool where you can purchase drinks and food, but the prices are a bit high.
My wife and I love to workout so we spent some time in the cardio/strength center. They have a weight machine that allows you to get a full body workout in and they have plenty of cardio machines. The air in the gym was set pretty cold, but we loved it this way so we didn't sweat to death in the Florida heat.
We've always spent our time in Destin and this room is located in Sandestin just across from Baytowne Wharf. We really enjoyed the location as it was a bit more up-scale and less chaotic than Destin. Don't get me wrong. Destin is just a short drive away.
If you're going to Baytowne Wharf, I encourage you to take advantage of the free shuttle. It's very clean, comfortable and convenient. They do not look for or expect tips, it truly is free.
The only small issues we experienced was the on-site propane grills would ignite intermittently. If you've going to be using the grills, I'd suggest bringing a lighter to light the grill. With a lighter, you'll be just fine. The other issue is parking. Parking in the parking garage fills up quickly. Only one night out of seven we were unable to find a spot in the garage and had to park across the street. It wasn't a big deal at all, but it could be an issue for someone that is handicap.
All in all this place is a solid 5 stars for me. I will most definitely stay here again. Thanks for the awesome memories!!
