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.

Nice 1 bedroom

  • 5 of 5

Very clean unit. Great view of the bay. Nice size balcony however this floor does not have the large wrap around balconies. Easy to book and deal with. Upgraded mattress that's great! Would stay here again!

It was very easy to relax here. Everything was clean and orderly. Easy to find things we needed. The views were spectacular and helped wipe all stress away! The location was perfect for getting to anything else we wanted to do on our get away.

Beautiful Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family visited this property in April 2017 and had a wonderful time. The Condo had everything necessary to cook meals and have a comfortable stay for My husband and 3 daughters ages 9, 6, and 10 months. We walked everywhere except for when we went to the beach. We drove to the other side of the resort and parked right in front of the beach. We always enjoy walking through Baytowne Wharf at night with the kids and the stroller so this was the perfect spot for us to stay. The pool also was not crowded like when we stay at the resorts closer to the beach which was great for us. We also soon found out that the wine festival was happening and were able to buy tickets and walk to the festival. Overall we had a great time and would stay here again!

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The property was beautiful and very nice. The view from the balcony was awesome! The perfect get away for my husband and me! Peaceful and very relaxing. As we were leaving my husband said, "We will have to remember this place." 😄

Best Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here. The condo was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. The balcony was a great perk as well with it's beautiful sunsets.

The kids would enjoy every, and I do mean every, morning after breakfast in the pool and then we chose to hit a different beach every day. We sometimes would come back to the pool and the hot tubs after the beach as well. We really appreciated the second bathroom getting ready for dinner.

The location of the condo was key. The kids enjoyed the village area and all of it's activities — bungee trampoline and zip line. We went to the Grand San Destin luau one night and while the music and limbo were fun for the kids and it was held in a beautiful setting, we felt that the cost was not worth the food or experience.

Eileen was amazing. We discovered that my husband accidentally left his wallet in the unit on our first gas stop about 4 hours away from San Destin. We called Eileen right away and she retrieved the wallet and mailed it to us right away. We were so thankful.

We are definitely returning for another relaxing week next year! Thank you again.
