Guestbook comments from the owner


I justed wanted to thank you for allowing us to use your condo. We really enjoyed our 10 days at the Grand Sandestin. The girls loved the pool and we enjoyed the spa. The rooms were great and we were even able to watch the fireworks from the balcony. Thank you again.

Kathy, I just had to send you a note to let you know how very much we enjoyed your condo this past week. The unit was so well kept and the furnishings were super. The weather was perfect and we decided that this time of the year is the best to be in Destin. When we arrived on Monday I honestly believe that there weren't more than 15-20 cars in the complex. Our granddaughter had a wonderful time walking around the development and was particularly impressed with the number of lizards and birds that we could see. Oh well, needless to say we had a terrific time and appreciate the opportunity to stay in your wonderful condo. I hope we left everything in order as we regretfully had to leave on Thursday. I look forward to renting your unit again sometime in the near future.

Great Condo

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location. Amenities such as towels and various soaps was over the top. Only issue with Condo was because of carpet stains in the entry throw rugs were needed and we eventually had to take up because of tripping. Sofa bed like most sofa beds was not comfortable at all as the cushions had no support in the center. Now as far as the Grand, some thought needs to be given to blowing leaves twice a day with very loud blowers. Someone needs to look into some form of battery operated blowers for noise control.

Sun down from the balcony couldn't be better. Also nice balcony to sun bath and relax.

My husband & I treated our grown children & grandbabies~ after many hours of research we found Grand Sandestin & Kathy. She was a pleasure to work with, very quick to respond to my messages. She answered my endless questions as well as helped arrange the delivery of the baby essentials (crib, swing, stroller) we rented from a local company. We couldn't have picked a more perfect location! View from balcony was spectacular! Quiet, 2 mth old spent many hours in her swing on balcony. The condo was well kept & roomy with most comforts of home (we missed our blankets for lounging on the couch, lol) We arrived early but condo wasn't ready; housekeeper was very nice about letting us in to get the stroller we rented so we could walk over to Baytowne. Check in/out was easy, condo was immaculate upon our arrival (before I left I washed/dried towels, emptied all trash cans and stripped beds trying to hurry things along for next excited guest). We were amazed at the beach items for our use. The pool was great for toddlers & adults alike. Five minute walk to Baytowne for evening goodies and events was fabulous. The convenience of the shuttle to the beach saved us driving & bringing sand home as a souvenir. The drivers were all fabulous, personable & funny. Even the grocery store was within the resort limits and WalMart couple miles away. The one item I purchased for the trip that I would highly recommend is a beach wagon with BIG wheels. It was our life saver!!! It held our cooler, towels, chairs, everything needed for the beach/pool. Even a tired toddler at times. It fit perfectly on the shuttle behind the driver. There was a vacuum in the condo so if it needed cleaned out it was never a problem.

Few cons: Dryer had to be run 2-3 times to dry four beach towels. Part was on order - hopeful that will fix the problem. The frig didn't seem to get very cold even on coldest setting and we couldn't get ice maker to work. Lock on entry door was a challenge - housekeeper tried to show us the "trick" after I failed several times to get it unlocked. She told us it had never been this difficult because she had to try several times herself. She said to call if we got locked out which never happened.

Overall, we LOVED our time here! The last night we were discussing when our family's schedule would line up for next year's vacation. Without hesitation we would rent this condo again. Thank you Kathy! You provided us with a very memorable vacation!!!

Very nice condo that is roomy and comfortable with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful condo for 4 nights for a family beach trip. We had 5 adults and a 4 year old. We had plenty of room, and the 3 bedrooms/3 baths allowed for us to still have privacy. The condo's kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cups, pots/pans, cooking utensils, toaster, blender, coffee pot and much more. There were also lots of extras, for example: beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, sand toys, soap, shampoo, bath salts, washer/dryer and more. The balcony has a nice view of the bay and also the pool. It was an easy walk to Baytowne Warf which has lots of shops, restaurants, bars, and activities for kids.The shuttle allows for easy transportation to and from the beach. We had a great trip and would love to stay at this property again in the future!

Kathy, thanks for allowing us to stay in your awesome condo!
