About Judith sanders

We are Bill and Judy Sanders from Louisville, KY.

you can call or text us anytime at 502-419-4110

Judith sanders purchased this condo in 2014

Why Judith sanders chose Sandestin

We chose Sandestin because there is so much to enjoy for all ages from small children to teenagers to grandparents....and everything is within a short walking or driving distance. We especially like the tunnel for golf carts, bicycles and walkers because we can access the entire resort without ever going out on the highway.

What makes this condo unique

The Choctawhatchee Bay view is spectacular from the fifth floor balcony. You will look out over tops of pine trees with Destin night lights twinkling in the distance as you enjoy a picture perfect sunset. The marshes and the bay attract exotic birds and wildlife so you will want to bring your binoculars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great 4 days staying at your Elation condo

My girls had so much fun fishing off the pier, what a plus for them as they already want to go back!

My son got in 36 holes, was 1 over after 13 holes on Raven, before a couple of double-bogeys….was real impressed with the courses.

The resort, with the Village and every imaginable activity, is now a family favorite for sure.

We all loved the resort and the accomodations, and will certainly be renting again!

I’m very glad we can pinpoint exactly where we need to be from now on, and very much appreciate your help and hospitality.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I go on a vacation every year and we have never found a place we agree on.....until now. The condo was beautiful. Very clean and beach-like. The resort the condo is in, was amazing as well. Anything you can think of doing, the resort has it. After several vacations of trying to find a place we want to return too, we found it. Will definitely return to this condo.

Loved it - would stay again

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to Baytown Wharf, the first time we stayed in a unit in Bahia and this time decided to stay in Elation. This condo had a beautiful Bay view, which was nice to watch the sunset. Condo was very clean and had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable, and the overall decor of the condo was very nice. The owners were very informative and sent everything needed prior to the trip. We were also lucky and got an early check in, which was fabulous and added a lot of time to our stay. I would definitely stay in this condo again!

Best Decision

  • 5 of 5

Our young family of four had the pleasure of staying at Elation #5506 over Memorial Day week 2017. We had never been to Sandestin before, but as we passed through the security gates of Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort, we knew we were in for a treat!

With Judy's email directions in hand, we drove up to the building and entered the secure, hidden parking garage with ease. The elevator took us straight up to the 5th-floor unit, which made unloading the car a breeze.

The pictures on VRBO are accurate; exactly as pictured. Besides the impressive view, the condo has a comfortable patio with four lounge chairs overlooking the bay, golf course, and woods. Our family watched fishing vessels on the water in the morning, as well as a large tortoise meandering across the golf course.

Since there weren't any photos of the washer & dryer on VRBO, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find a stacked washer and dryer in the unit, to the right of the front door. It takes high-efficiency detergent and accommodates smaller loads. It was so nice to throw a load in after a day at the beach.

There were little thoughtful touches everywhere, which really made this our home-away-from-home. There were plenty of baskets to organize towels and clothing. The nightstands provided additional storage, and well-placed electrical outlets made recharging our phones easy. The condo came stocked with toilet paper, facial tissues, hand soap, paper towels, dishwasher tabs, and garbage bags.

The bedroom and living room furniture was extremely comfortable! I would love to know where they bought their sofa --- it's that nice! Additionally, the blackout shades completely blocked the light so we could all sleep in.

The biggest reason we decided to stay here was the deluxe pool and close proximity to Baytown Wharf, which is just a short walk away. You cannot beat the location! Our young sons loved exploring the nightlife, restaurants, and kids attractions (zip lines, tree top tours, inflatables, fireworks, ice cream, etc.).

When it came to planning our road trip and beach vacation, this condo was the best decision we made! It provided all the amenities of home, a place to relax, the ability to explore, and more. Highly recommended! I hope we can stay here again!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us. The week we came it rained most of the time due to Hurricane Cindy but this condo we were in made it ok. It was beautiful on the inside with everything we needed. It was every close to the pool and hot tub and a short walkway to a pier that had restaurants, music, shopping, etc... We would definitely rent from these owners again!

Clean, serene, location with pretty view of the lagoon and bay

  • 5 of 5

The owner was extremely organized, and attentive by email or phone. Beautiful condo, very clean, well equipped,and comfortable master bedroom and pull out sofa. The condo was just as described and shown on the pictures. It was a serene, quiet retreat in Baytowne. Easy access to the pool and all the events also. Will definitely be back!
