About the property

Open Living Area and Private Balcony Overlooking The Bay

Minimum age to book is 25, strictly enforced.

Find privacy and prepare for outdoor adventure! Perched on the edge of Horseshoe Bayou wetlands, with expansive views of tall grasses and the Choctawhatchee Bay, this 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom retreat offers walking access to almost any coastal activity plus the peace and quiet of a nature preserve.

Ready for adventure? Start your day surrounded by some of the world’s most beautiful, sugar-white sand beaches and immersed in the warm, clear waters of the Emerald Coast. Rest, relaxing and adjusting your beach umbrella can leave you exhausted – no worries. Just stop into the Beach House restaurant where you can refresh and reenergize without losing site of the Gulf.

When an entire day of lounging and napping has left you (dare we say) too relaxed, get moving and seek unique water sports, tropical plant life, coastline wildlife and waterside treasures throughout the resort. At this charming property, you and your guests are just steps from miles of walking and biking paths which reach throughout the entire Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort®. Take the path to unique stops like, Jolee Island where you’re sure to find treasures on your nature hike or follow the path to the Baytowne Marina where stand-up paddling, kayaking and other bay-water activities await.

After your amazing day of trails and water activities, and beach time, stop by the community pool for a quick dip, then fresh-up and enjoy a cocktail or refreshment on the patio while taking in even better views of the Choctawhatchee Bay.

Inside you and your guests will enjoy an open floor plan with a fully equipped kitchen. Serve up snacks, a quick lunch or a seafood feast in the dining room and breakfast bar area where each guest can dine comfortably. The master suite offers an en suite bathroom for added privacy, and the remaining two bedrooms offer a queen and set of twin beds.

After watching the sun drop below the Bay take a walk to the always happening Village of Baytowne Wharf. Here everyone will dine, play and enjoy just the way they want with many restaurant options, live entertainment and seasonal family friendly activities.

Enjoy even more additional amenities at Heron Walk like front-door parking, screened-in lanais, Cathedral-height ceilings and nearby community pool.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The condo is located in the Sandestin community. It's like a town of its own with its own shops and activities to do. The home itself was nice and clean inside, and had extra utilities for our use. We also had nearby beach access (across the street). You won't regret it!

Great Home

  • 4 of 5

We had two families staying in this unit. There was plenty of room for everyone. Loved how close it was to the beach and just a short walk to the pool. Walked to the pier and watched some beautiful fireworks over in Baytowne Village. Would definitely come back!

Great Sandestin Vacation Spot!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed here on a last minute booking and it was great! The place was spacious, very clean and it had everything we needed. It's in a great location close to restaurants, shopping, beach, pool, walking/running trails and everything else Sandestin has to offer. Of all the places in Destin, I believe Sandestin is the best and this house was perfect for us on our trip. Would definitely book again. The property manager was very helpful and accommodating and the booking process was seamless. If the beach was in walking distance this property would get 5 stars. Again great place and we will come again and recommend to our friends.

3 Couples stayed for a weekend getaway and loved this place. It's roomy and clean. Location was great. Obviously, you have to drive to beach but it took less than 5 minutes and our parking pass allowed us to park in the resort's beach lots. Also, we walked to pool (2 blocks) which was nice. I'd recommend to anyone and plan to stay here again. It was a great bargain.

Florida Retreat 4.5 stars if possible

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nice and spacious for 4 adults and two kids in the 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Very family/group friendly. It was quiet despite families next door. We slept soundly. There were flat screen televisions in all rooms and the living area. The condo had more amenities than expected (e.g. detergent, ziploc bags, beach bag). Cleanliness reflected a turnover style and needed some detail cleaning. The view of the bay was nice and it was conveniently located to food, beach, and shopping. The enclosed patio limited the fresh air but walking around the resort was perfectly fine. Overall we loved it and enjoyed our stay.
