Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Gorgeous Community Pool, 3 Blocks From Beach

NEW RENTAL, NEW CONSTRUCTION completed in November 2012. Great location in the neighborhood, closest to the beach, steps from the pool. A true gem to find in Destin. The neighborhood is tucked away from the hustle and bustle but convenient to everything! The house is beautifully decorated, a modern, coastal and airy feel with 4 bedrooms. First floor: huge king master with on-suite, cozy chaise lounge and baby friendly with pack-n-play provided in the closet. Queen sleeper sofa in family room. Second floor: 3 bedrooms including king master with on-suite. Queen room with balcony access (shared bath), full bed plus twin bunk beds (shared bath). Loft seating/TV area with balcony access. Laundry closet with brand new, FULL SIZE machines, on second floor. Kitchen has breakfast bar seating for 6 and dining table with seating for at least 6. Huge, SMART TV in family room that all men will love. House is family and baby friendly. Beach towels, toddler/baby toys, booster/highchair, pack-n-play, bocce ball set (to play at beach or sand volleyball court 2 doors down from house) are provided. Gorgeous community pool, the largest community pool in Destin, with zero entry- great for little ones, water falls and a Hot tub. Tiki bar party area and grill. Community has tram service to the beach during peak season (free!) which is convenient if you have kids, coolers, etc. The beach is a 5-10 minute 3 block walk. We are across the street from Destin Commons shopping center for great outdoor shopping, restaurants, movie theater and play area for kids with water spouts. The Villages of Crystal Beach is the perfect location in Destin. Whether you hang out at the pool and beach all day and order delivery, frequent the ice cream trucks or cook in the well stocked kitchen or man the infrared burn free grill, or take a walk to 790 on the gulf for happy hour and dinner, you will be happy you chose the Sandbar! We are within 5 miles of Harbor Walk to the west and the outlets/Sandestin to the east.

In case you get sun burned or have a rainy day, we have several books and games at the house. If you aren't convinced this is the house for you, other amenities incude a cart on wheels if you wish to forgo the tram ride and walk to the beach. A canopy to put up at the beach for some shade. A nice cup of coffee from our Keurig (or make a whole pot if you have lots of coffee drinkers). Your kids can enjoy a wagon ride to the pool and around the neighborhood. There is a church playground a few blocks away open for public use.

About Sandy and Darrell Donaldson

We are Darrell and Sandy Donaldson and we live in Smyrna, GA. We love to travel but there is no place like the beautiful Emerald Coast! We have 2 small daughters (born in 2011, 2013) and are excited to have a place to take them in the summer and holidays and share with our family and friends! We hope you enjoy The Sandbar as much as we do! Good times, good family, good friends, good memories! That's what its all about. Cheers!

Sandy and Darrell Donaldson purchased this house in 2012

Why Sandy and Darrell Donaldson chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We looked at several areas and options all around the Emerald Coast. We love the quiet and have stayed in 30A but were always looking for more places to shop and dine without having to drive far. The traffic and hustle and bustle near Harborwalk and the condos always seemed too crowded in what we knew of Destin. The Villages of Crystal beach was the answer! We were so lucky to find a neighborhood with that peaceful, 30A feel but so close to so much dining, shopping and fun things to do here in Destin. Once we saw the pool and knew their were lots available for new construction, the rest was history!

What makes this house unique

We love the Smart TV and ordering Netflix, before we had that we loved using Redbox and there are at least 3 super close to our house. We love the beachy decor that isn't in your face pink/teal like so many of the older homes or red/tan traditional that doesn't feel like a beach house. The open kitchen is awesome, being able to talk to everyone and see the TV, so you don't miss any quality time. We get sort of addicted to Yahtzee in the evenings at the Sandbar......

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Sandbar was wonderful! It was in a perfect location - an easy walk to the beach, very close to the pool yet away from the noise, and an easy ride to all the stores. The house was perfect for our family. Us grandparents downstairs with our own bathroom. And plenty of room for our grown children with their families upstairs. The balcony was wonderful for sitting and watching all the people coming and going to the beach. The kitchen had plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans. The toys were a nice surprise for our grandson. And the wagon worked out great to take him to the beach. The baby gate also worked well. We would definitely stay at The Sandbar again!

Beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We originally planned to go to Hilton Head but Hurricane Matthew changed our plans. We frantically searched for a place on the gulf side. We were pleasantly

Surprised with our choice. A lovely, spacious home in a gated community just a couple blocks from the beach. Plus the owners provided a canopy, beach chairs, beach toys, and two totes and a wagon to get it back and forth. The pool is fantastic. Highly recommend.

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice and much larger than it appears in the pics. The only thing I didn't love was one of the bedrooms did not have a TV which caused a bit of a problem but I think I misunderstood on the listing so that's my fault. Overall our experience was wonderful and the house worked well for us.

Great place with all of the necessities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Sandbar. It was more than enough space for 12 with very nice accommodations. The house even included beach towels, a canopy and plenty of beach toys. The short walk to the beach was easy and the pool was really nice. The house is furnished with everthing you will need for a week's stay at the beach. We can't wait to go back!

Perfect house for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate. We brought a 1 year old and appreciated having everything in the house we needed for her care. It is larger than it appears. The pool was beautiful and the beach was awesome! I would recommend this property to anyone with a family.
