About Harry Rowland

We live in the vibrant, eclectic city of Decatur, GA (an Atlanta suburb) when not in our Sandestin villa or the Northwest Georgia Mountain cabin.

Harry Rowland purchased this villa in 2013

Why Harry Rowland chose Sandestin

We have enjoyed family owned property within Sandestin for over 30 years. We grew up coming to the Emerald Coast and have raised our children with vacations in family Sandestin villas. The restfulness, privateness, weather and security as well as the close proximity to the gulf's most beautiful beaches, golf courses, shopping, and marvelous eateries made our personal purchase of this home an easy decision.

What makes this villa unique

Being that the villa is a free standing, single level home with carport, porch and patio, a sense of privacy and peacefulness is experienced even while beaches, pools, shopping and dining is in easy walking distance. Just by opening the door one can mount a bike for a morning ride or stretch your legs on the walking paths. After a day of adventuring, ending it peacefully on the patio beside fish grilling on the gas grill as the sun sets has become our favorite part of the day.

So wonderful!!!

There really aren't enough words to describe how much our family loved it here! Harry and Denise have created a very special place to families to relax and enjoy their stay! The area is very lovely, we loved the location which is so great to get to the beach and Wharf with the golf cart, our youngest also loved the bikes and seeing what goodies were in the garage closet! The house itself was stocked so well, very clean and the beds were VERY comfy. We will definitely plan on coming back to this lovely home in the future! Thanks again, Harry and Denise!

Attention to detail...

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to provide a glowing review because I'd like this unit to be available when I need a place to stay. But to be honest, this place is in a nice neighborhood within minutes of the beach, Baytown Warf, the outlet mall and other shopping opportunities. The owner provides very detailed instruction on directions to the pool(s), beach, grocery stores and other shopping, churches, etc. Bicycles, a charcoal grill, beach toys, and a golf cart comes with this deal. I've stayed in the Sandestin area for years and this may be my favorite place to stay. The best of several worlds. Look at the pictures provided because they are accurate to the time I stayed there last week. I miss being there already.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. There is nothing like the Emerald Coast. We always hope our villa makes for a relaxing and comfortable environment to enjoy the Sandestin beach and resort. Being on the Bayside means less traffic and a quieter more relaxing experience. The golf cart provides quick and easy access to the beach and around the resort. I hope you will stay with us again in the future.

Very convenient to beach; golf cart plus. Wasn’t as “clean” as expected. Mouldy grounds in coffee maker, all towels smelled like cigarette smoke.

We stay at Sandestin resort 2 - 3 times each year. This was the first time I rented a unit that was pet friendly. Yay!! Loved visiting with my family and my fur family. Our unit was great. There was an issue with the AC unit and it was promptly repaired. The owner was easy to contact and work with. We enjoyed using the bikes, golf cart, beach chairs, beach towels and grill that was provided. The kitchen had everything we needed. The unit was very roomy.
