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.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Franc and Cheryl's condo literally had everything you could possibly need while on vacation. The fully equipped kitchen had everything from pots and pans all the way down to measuring spoons and a wine bottle opener! My kiddos loved feeding the fish and turtles from the balcony, and we all loved getting around the resort in The Silver Bullet. Even going to the beach was a beeeze as the condo came equipped with beach chairs, coolers, towels, etc. We could not have found a better place! Thanks again Franc and Cheryl :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your awesome feedback! We LOVE Sandestin and all that it has to offer so strive to make it the most complete, easy, hassle free stay our guests could ever expect to encounter. We appreciate you reinforcing that we got the details right and it paved the way for you to enjoy the resort the moment you hit the ground rather than looking to purchase, rent or find the things you might need. We look forward to your return and more memories being made for your adorable family! Until then, Cheryl and Franc

Amazing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year in a row coming to Miramar. The retreat is a place we always come back to. It is right on the bay, nice breezes. We love feeding the turtles and the resort has everything you could possibly ever need just a golf cart ride away! We could only do one week this year instead of two and one week is never enough, we always find it tough to leave!! Franc and Cheryl are wonderful owners who have thought of everything you could possibly need to feel the comfort of a home while on vacation! Until next time...aaron, Dana, Jayden

Owner's Response: A multitude of memories on BOTH sides! Almost 3 years ago when my husband Franc and I purchased "The Retreat" you were some of our very first guests! Over the years, you have become friends and family to us and we anxiously look forward to your return each year! Thank you for your sweet words and reinforcing your love for this area and "The Retreat"! It was fun when you pointed out to us all the new additions from larger plusher beach towels, the new 2017 golf cart fondly dubbed "The Silver Bullet", the new area rug in the living-room,etc.... Our Summer would not be complete without your return! We look forward to next year... Cheryl and Franc

This condo was so well equipped with everything we needed and we felt so at home. It was very nicely furnished and clean and bright for our arrival. The location was perfect for watching the Saturday night fireworks right from our balcony! Golf cart was excellent for getting around Sandestin, but most of all, Cheryl and Franc, the owners, were close by and so gracious and welcoming. Would highly recommend and plan to stay with them again!

Awesome Retreat!!!

Wow. Words can't describe how amazing this place truly is. Pictures don't do it justice. It is breathtaking and very relaxing. The hospitality that the owners offered was great! We booked this place for my birthday and when we arrived the owners left a very thoughtful gift. This is my go to place from now on! Thank you Cheryl and Frank for making this trip so amazing!

We can't say enough great things about this condo and our experience!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the best we've stayed in yet in Sandestin! It's beautifully decorated, gorgeous view, has all the comforts of home, and a great golf cart for getting around. Franc and Cheryl are the best! They knew we were coming with our 2 kids and would be spending Easter there. There was a basket full of goodies and a card waiting for us when we arrived. This is just one of the many special touches! We will certainly be staying here again!
