About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 4 with Fabulous Bay Views

The spectacular Bay view from this unit is unrivaled and glorious. Open the door and step out onto your private, corner balcony with 8th floor vistas. Breathe deeply. Rest your eyes upon the glistening waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay. Look down upon the manicured Grand Lawn and pristine southern gardens. In the distance, the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico wait patiently for you. The walk-in pool and hot tubs below invite you in, when you are ready. The Village of Baytowne Wharf beckons you to explore, feast, shop, play and dance. But first, kick off your shoes, sit down to rest, and watch the sunset God painted for your arrival.

This one bedroom, two bath condominium is tastefully decorated in tropical hues and has brand-new plush carpet (Nov 2013). The upscale kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and a collection of Pampered Chef kitchen tools for those who like to cook occasionally. The master bedroom features a king-size bed, flat screen TV, double vanity and gorgeous marble shower with a soaker tub. The living room chairs and sleeper sofa make TV and movie time comfortable and easy. The dining room table seats four, with two additional bar stools for casual eaters. A second full bath/shower is conveniently located off the kitchen and there is plenty of storage space throughout if you're staying a month or two.

From the elegant and stately Lobby of the Grand Sandestin, step out onto the walking porch and follow the seashell cobblestone sidewalk to the delicious array of restaurants, including the best French restaurant on the Emerald Coast (with a local seafood flair!). The entire Village awaits you with eateries, boutiques, nightclubs, wine tastings, live music, ice skating, a playground, ice cream shops and a merry-go-round. Walk the pier to feed the fish, take photos or watch for dolphins. Stop for drinks or check out where Another Broken Egg is located for your morning breakfast.

The pedestrian-friendly Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort has miles of paved jogging and bike paths. Cardio and weight-lifting equipment is at your disposal in the fitness room. The Resort boasts four championship golf courses, fifteen world class tennis courts and Jolee Island to explore. The Marina offers kayaks, YOLO paddle boards, jet skis, boats and bike rentals. End your perfect day with a sunset dinner cruise aboard the Solaris.

Local seafood, homemade donuts, maritime forests, windswept sand dunes, rare coastal dune lakes and the largest Designer Outlet mall in the United States are all within two to three miles outside the resort for your exploring days.

About Chris Manion

We left Chicago winters behind to live in this dreamy resort and wish to share it with as many as we can. The soul needs beauty to restore itself from time to time. We live on property, so if you need anything, we're close at hand. Our son is a Second Class Petty Officer for the U.S. Coast Guard; our daughter teaches high school English in Michigan. We are proud of them both and highly supportive of families and parents who raise them. We are happily married 38 years and love welcoming newlyweds!

Chris Manion purchased this condo in 2004

Why Chris Manion chose Sandestin Area

The resort's beauty is widely known. The exquisite view from this unit is rarely found. This is an end unit. Your balcony is semi-private, with a unit to the left, but none above or to the right.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making our stay in the Sandestin area so special. You were always attentive to our needs when anything was required. We felt very at home in your comfortable and luxurious condo. The sunsets were spectacular, as was the entire setting at the Village. I loved my daily walks on the pier and surrounding area. Spectacular! The only disappointment was the cool first couple months. Other than that, everything was excellent. Thanks again for everything.

Fantastic condo with amazing views from the oversized balcony!!! The layout of the space was perfect. The kitchen was well equipped. If we had stayed longer we would have used the washer/dryer. Overall, this condo is one of the best we have stayed in. We would come back in a heartbeat!! Now home to snow :(

This condo was exactly what we hoped it would be. The view from the balcony was wonderful . The furnishings and decor were tastefully selected and arranged. There is nothing negative that we can think of to report. We would and will recommend this property and unit to anybody and everybody.

Fabulous Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was awesome. It sits on the 8th floor overlooking the pool, the golf course and the bay. It is located in a great spot, very convenient to the shops, bars and restaurants, but far enough away that you don't get any noise at night. It's an end unit, with no one above you, so it's very secluded and quiet. We appreciated the basement parking right by the elevator and the building is very nice an welcoming.

We hope to return again soon.

Love love love!

Wonderful trip with my 5 yr old and she wants to just go ahead and move there and live in this condo! Me too. I've stayed in many places and actually slept better in this bed than my own at home. They've really gone out of their way to make this a great experience for their guests. Will definitely stay here again!
