About Eddie

We are the Armstrong's... We live in Birmingham, Alabama, but love our vacation home in Sandestin. We purchased in June 2013 and spent the last half of the year remodeling our cottage in order for our family, friends and guest to enjoy more updated amenities when getting away to the beach. We hope your family will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Eddie purchased this house in 2013

Why Eddie chose Sandestin

We decided on this part of Sandestin due to several reasons:

* Great Neighborhood that is centrally located to the beach, golf, fishing, pools and Baytowne Village.

* A one level free standing house that allowed us to remodel with a more modern design with updated amenities to give us all the conveniences of home

What makes this house unique

If you like the comfort of home away from home, then you are going to love to spend your vacation with us.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! It not only had everything that we needed but the location was amazing! You really didn't even have to leave the property if you don't want to because there are plenty of shops, restaurants and activities on the property. Would advise you to use the golf cart the owners offer as this was our main method of transportation. We used the golf cart to get to the beach, grocery store and stores across Highway 98 using the beach tunnel access. Our daughter ended up with an ear infection from all the swimming so we even got to visit the on-site medical clinic and pharmacy and can tell you firsthand they were great. Owners were wonderful and made themselves available whenever we had questions. Will definitely use this rental in the future and can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Mackenzie, Thank you so much for the kind words and we really appreciate you staying with us during your recent stay. I'm so glad you guys had a great time, but sorry you had to visit the on-site medical care facility. One of the main reasons we choose to buy our home is that it's centrally located to everything in the resort. We sure would like to have you folks back in the future. Thanks, Eddie

Great Vacation Place for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

Eddie your condo was Great, Thank you for sharing it. The golf cart is a must have and blast to use and see all the amenities around the Sandestin Resort. My Family & friends enjoyed our stay. Your condo was well stocked with all the essentials, it was immaculate upon our arrival, and very nicely decorated. Flat screen TV's were great for watching the NBA finals. Can not say enough about what a great time we all had

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

This place is excellent! Rent the golf cart - its a great time saver. We used it to get over to the beach side (tunnel underneath Hwy 98) as well as to get to Baytowne Wharf. The home had plenty of room for all 7 of us. It is very clean, and the beds are comfortable. It is in a quiet area. The owner is great to work with. We look forward to another stay.

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our spring break vacation and we couldn't have asked for anything more. This house is in a great location and it really does feel like a home away from home. I highly recommend renting the golf cart when you stay here, it makes getting around the community and trips to the beach extremely convenient.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Normally, my family rents a cottage in Frangista Beach; but decided to try something different. I am so pleased that we ventured out. This home has EVERYTHING. It's modern, decorated nicely, yet is quite kid friendly. it's the perfect balance for adults to enjoy themselves without feeling like they are stuck in a Disney hotel yet comfortable enough that I never worried if my son was going to break something.

Wifi Connection is strong-some may laugh-but that is a HUGE item for me. Each bedroom has TV's. The master bedroom is a smart TV, so you can log into your Netflix account to watch tv (if you'd like). The home is fully stocked with everything you would need. Great quality dishes, utensils, towels etc.

We LOVED having the golf cart and scooting over to the beach or Baytowne Wharf for dinner and hanging out.

We always felt safe, secure, and sound. I would definitely recommend this home. We will certainly be back, sooner than later!
