About Virginia Stephens

We are empty nesters that would like to retire at the beach. We purchased this home so we can enjoy the beach, golf and the beautiful area prior to making Destin our full time residence.

Virginia Stephens purchased this villa in 2014

Why Virginia Stephens chose Sandestin

For many years we have enjoyed vacationing in Destin. This quiet neighborhood, with shade and pine trees quickly became our favorite location. We are close to the major attractions of the resort, but in a neighborhood with little traffic and perfect for bike riding, walking and golf. Enjoy your coffee while watching the golfers with the lake view and bay view in the distance.

Great Place! Beautiful Views! Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! This location has a beautiful of the golf course view and a view of the bay. We loved the layout and it has a great screened patio for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. This unit has been completely remodeled and updated. Virginia is wonderful and made us feel very welcomed. We live in Houston and were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and had to reschedule our vacation. Virginia was totally understanding and allowed us to come when we were ready. We felt completely at home and highly recommend this villa if you are looking to stay at Sandestin.

Quiet, tranquil home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Luckily, this property was still available at the last minute. We fled southeast Florida for a safer place. I hated leaving our new home, but was so thankful for this gem of a refuge. Virginia, the owner, could not have been nicer and more hospitable and once I arrived here I was instantly greeted by a warm and welcoming home. Everything that you could possibly want in a vacation area is here for you - golf, beautiful beaches, walking and biking paths, great shopping, beautiful drives, and great restaurants. Make the town of Seaside a must see. The bookshop is wonderful and there are some good restaurants with a view of gulf. When meandering through Seaside go away from the gulf and you will find charming galleries and beautiful shops - my favorite being Paris Apartment - ooh la la. - a feast for the eyes and nose. This was an unexpected trip - Hurricane Irma was fast approaching and there was not much time. Luckily my house is fine and we unexpectedly had a wonderful vacation. Thank you Virginia for your open hospitality

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you and your husband are home and the hurricane did not do major damage. Thank you for being such wonderful guests and helping protect our home when the winds threatened the area. We certainly appreciate your moving our porch and patio furniture inside. Thank goodness Irma did not harm our area. Best wishes as you settle in your new area. We would love to have you back anytime!

Cozy, Clean, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It was my husband, our 2 small children (1 & 3 yo), and myself. We had tons of room! My husband and I enjoyed the screened in back porch at night when the kids went to bed. Such a relaxing time that we were so sad to leave. Comfy beds, comfy couch, and quite possibly everything you'll need in the kitchen. Loved it!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved your condo - everything from its location, beautifully situation on the golf course, to its decorations and amenities. We loved the waffle-maker and used it a few times much to my kids delight. The beds were comfortable, the living space was tastefully decorated and spacious. The five of us never bumped into each other and everyone had a great time. We also got to watch the birds in the nest outside our window grow and leave their nest. All in all it was a great experience and when we return to Destin you will be on the top of the list of places to stay. Thank you so much!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the message. I appreciate the report on the birds. We were fascinated with them when we were there and glad you got to watch the experience. We hope you will come back again!

So happy we found this place!

  • 5 of 5

We've been vacationing in Destin for 20 years, and have stayed at several different places, but this one is now our favorite. The location is great - easy access to Baytowne Wharf, Grand Boulevard, but far enough removed to be quiet and peaceful. The decor is beautiful - loved the dining table! We enjoyed the view of the pond, and the screened porch was one of our favorite hang-outs. The bikes, beach chairs, and beach umbrella were such nice extras! This is the first time we haven't needed to buy or rent some type of equipment during our vacation - and that was much appreciated. The beds were comfortable, and apparently so was the couch since both my husband and son fell asleep on it! There was plenty of room for the three of us, and we could've definitely had at least a couple more people without it feeling crowded. Virginia (the owner) is quick to respond to emails/calls. I highly recommend staying here - as a matter of fact, we've already booked a second stay. Maybe I should be less enthusiastic about it so we don't have too much competition for dates we'd like to book!
