We all love family game time, so there are board games for all ages to enjoy. There is a wonderful walking/jogging path that runs along the beach for early morning exercise or romantic evening strolls.

A short walk to a wonderful coffee shop, ice cream parlor and the Whales Tail for a beachside breakfast. Be sure to watch for the dolphins playing in the early morning waters of the Gulf from the Whales Tail deck. If it iss shopping you are after, shop til you drop at the Silver Sands Outlets or the upscale shops at Destin Commons.

You'll return again and again to this perfectly located condo in beautiful Miramar Beach (Destin). All the comforts of home are provided, but leave all of your worries from home behind. So, get away from it all, even if only for a while and enjoy the vacation of a lifetime!

Discounts for repeat guests. Also check out our sister property (VRBO 555588). It is directly below this condo and together will provide a 4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom alternative for larger travel groups. We love our families, but when we are traveling with them, we understand needing a little time to ourselves.

About Scott and Teresa Hindsman

So three couples from Northeast Alabama who have been friends for a long time and love to travel together found themselves at this unique crossroads in their lives at the same time. The Nest is empty! So now what to do? The possibilities are endless.....UPDATE!: A fourth couple saw how much fun we were having with our first condo (VRBO 555588) and wanted a part of the fun. So now we are 8!

Much to our dismay, we still had these darn jobs, so selling our houses and disappearing onto the beaches of South America, while enticing, just didn't seem possible. Then, these wonderful little grandbabies started turning up so we decided to stay a little closer to home! But a place to leave your worries behind...even for just a little while, that was our goal.

Miramar Beach, nestled between Sandestin to the east and Destin to the west, turned out to be the perfect spot. We had so much fun with our first condo at Tradewinds, we decided to buy our second...right above the first.

White sand beaches, emerald green waters of the Gulf and sunsets that only God can paint provide the beautiful backdrop for our getaway. Early morning walks on the beach, afternoon drinks on the deck at Pompano Joe's and sunsets on the beach are the only 'appointments' on our calendar while we're here. The rest of the day is a blank canvas awaiting your masterpiece. Your idea of the perfect day at the beach and my idea may be totally different. Personally, I like to get under the umbrella on the beach and see how many naps I can take! Tomorrow, maybe I'll be more ambitious or maybe not, might just try to take more naps than yesterday!

We want to share this with you. We want you to fall in love with Miramar Beach the way we have. We want your to raise your kids here, make incredible memories here just like we have. Most of all, we want you to leave the stressful, hurried life...that we all seem to live, behind, if only for a little while. We hope you decide to stay.

Why Scott and Teresa Hindsman chose Miramar Beach

We've been vacationing on this stretch of beach since the early 1980s. We've raised our children here, have incredible memories of all our vacations here. It's one of our favorite places on earth. Tradewinds is a beautiful place with lots of green grass for the kids to play and only steps away from the beautiful white sand beaches and emerald gulf waters! Our own little piece of Heaven right here on earth!

What makes this condo unique

We provide beach service for 2 (seasonal), a $200 added value!

awesome home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our vacation here!! The online pictures really don't do this condo justice. First of all, it's very clean (can't stress that enough) and nicely furnished. Secondly, it's surprisingly roomy inside. Even with 5 people sharing it, we had plenty of space. Balcony over pool is wonderful to sit on with morning coffee, and we loved the ocean views. The pool area itself is very beautiful, and we enjoyed several evening swims there. The beach is also very close, and we greatly appreciated the free beach service. Condo also had everything we needed to cook in several nights as well, and the beds were really comfortable (always got a good night's sleep) Pompano Joes across the street had great food and nice atmosphere. Also found another great place just down the road (Captain Dave's).

The convenience of this location can't be adequately described, but you've done a great job. We look forward to having you guys back. Scott

Great location,walking distance from the beach. The condo was very clean. And the beds were so comfortable! It was nice to come home after a long day at the beach and actually get a good nights rest.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay! Can't beat the location and the price and the included beach service. Owner was so helpful. He even suggested best restaurants in the area. The master bedroom mattress was very comfortable. Loved condo set up. Perfect amount of room for 5 of us. I cannot say how clean this condo was when we arrived. So happy to see that! The parking situation was explained to us before arrival but we didn't know our extra car needed a pass for the visitor spot. We were flagged down on the balcony by the EXTREMELY rude onsite manager who informed us that our guest's car was about to be towed. Let me mention we had arrived only 2 hours earlier. This could've been handled in a much better way than it was. That was the only problem we had on the whole stay. Would highly recommend and will stay again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We love everything about Miramar Beach and the surrounding areas. I apologize for the confrontation with the on-site manager. She takes defending that parking lot way too seriously and we are working hard with the HOA to soften her up. We would love to have you back and offer 10% returning guest discounts. Always let me know what your favorite restaurant was, because that's half the fun of being on the beach, the delicious food. Thanks. Scott

Leave your worries behind. The only 'appointments' on your calendar are morning walks on the beautiful white sand beaches, drinks and live music in the afternoons at Pompano Joe's and incredible sunsets on the beach in the evening! The Back Porch, Louisiana Lagniappe and Stinky's Fish Camp are just a few of the multitude of wonderful restaurants that you'll find only a short drive from Tradewinds. For the kids (and the kid in all of us), enjoy putt-putt golf, go-karts and the water slides of Big Kahuna Water Park (seasonal). There are world glass golf courses to test your skills and incredible shopping at the Silver Sands Outlets and Destin Commons.
