Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing Condo, Beautiful Area!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This is one review we are very happy to write, and is long over due. We celebrated our wedding anniversary in Sandestin, and had an amazing time. It was such a great experience we didn’t want to leave, and are already planning for next year. The hosts are very welcoming; can’t say enough about them, they are wonderful people. Their condo is very clean with a perfect view, and comes with everything you would need for a beach vacation. They also gave us great tips on the area, so we were busy having fun every day. The golf cart was a nice bonus, perfect to make runs to the beach, bar, and shops. This was an absolutely wonderful experience, one that we highly recommend.

Beautiful condo with everything you'll need or want!

  • 5 of 5

Cheryl has stocked this condo with so many things to make your vacation even easier- beach towels and chairs, kitchen supplies, etc! It is beautiful with a great view of the golf course and marina. We enjoyed watching the fireworks from the deck! I think one of our favorite things about the stay was the availability of the golf cart! It was so fun to hop on it and ride over to Baytown Warf or Grande Boulevard for dinner, ice cream, shopping, or entertainment! My kids also loved riding it through the tunnel over to the beach! We had a great week and have already recommended the condo to friends! Thanks so much!!

Relaxing anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our 5 year anniversary getaway at this property. Cheryl and Franc were very welcoming and made our stay very pleasant. I would highly recommend staying at this property. Not only a very nice condo but the owners make sure you are all taken care of during your stay. We will return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for another affirmative review of "The Retreat"! We look forward to having you back to make additional memories. The golf cart IS a game changer and allows you to forget (at least for a while) all the hustle and bustle of highway traffic as you whip around from beach to bay, out for dining, shopping or just sightseeing of all 2400 beautiful acres. We look forward to hosting you again! Cheryl and Franc

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is decorated beautifully and loved having all of the necessity items already there for us to use! This was by far the most equipped condo we have stayed at since we have been going to San Destin. We loved all of the color choices and the golf cart was fantastic! We never got back in our vehicle to go anywhere once we arrived at San Destin. The hosts are wonderful people who were close by if we needed anything. The view from the balcony and also from the front were spectacle! We would highly recommend anyone to stay in this condo!

We will be excited to welcome you back for another experience at "The Retreat". Making memories is what this resort is all about and I am certain you you made more than your share! Cheryl and Franc

Very very nice!! Everything about this condo is amazing.

  • 5 of 5

First of all a big thank you to Franc and Cheryl for letting us stay at their place and being such wonderful hosts. It felt like we had been their neighbors for years. They are both very nice, just great people! Second the golf cart was a huge hit with us. We don't own one so it was something new for us and we had so much fun just riding around the resort, going out to eat, or getting ice cream. The only time we used our vehicle was to go to wal mart, a few restaurants and "The Track". Lastly the resort itself was amazing! It was the nicest place we have ever stayed. Beautiful trees and flowers everywhere! The grounds are well maintained, everyday you see landscapers working somewhere. This was our first beach vacation without being in a beachfront condo but the gorgeous views of the bay and marina makeup for it. The sunset from the 14 green/15 tee area overlooking the bay is stunning. The pool area is very nice and is just down the street maybe 100ft. The beach is only about a five to ten minute golf cart ride away. We would highly recommend this condo!!

Owner's Response: These are formidable words and comments from a family that is as well traveled and particular in their preferences as your family is.....thank you for broadcasting your approval to the VRBO family of vacationers! We are in our 3rd year of hosting families such as yourself looking to "pick the right one" and to make the very best choice they can for their precious time away so it is with great intention that we stock, stage and anticipate what every traveler might hope for to make this a memorable and easy escape for EVERYBODY! We hope that we get to enjoy you and your family another time. Perhaps longer next time as I know that you left much left undone even though your days were fun filled and activity packed! Until we meet again, Cheryl and Franc
