Nice space, great window views

  • 3 of 5

It was great space for 6 people. Beautiful window views. Wish that the condo was more updated and cleaner. Carpet was old. Dishwasher in a bad shape and loud. Bathrooms were clean on the surface but not in detail. Coffee and end tables in the living room were not attached to base. Some bugs. However, overall, we had a good stay in this condo. Love Sandestin!

uncooperative unresponsive property managers

  • 2 of 5

Unit was OK, not great, dated furniture.

I asked if we could check-in early, the lady said we could check-in at 1pm for an extra $100. The contract says early check-in forbidden due to allowing time to clean unit to their "high cleanliness standards". There was nobody checking out on our day of arrival, but we declined the $100 early check-in fee. When we arrived at the unit, there were 3 dead cockroaches on the floor.

You will not get the SanDestin resort card with this rental because the property managers are "RealJoy", not SanDestin. Called RealJoy to ask questions about the resort, was on hold for a few minutes, then it says "sorry we are busy leave a message, we will call you back..." Left message twice, no call back. "RealJoy" not a real joy to deal with...

Unit is near tennis center and Baytown Wharf, pretty good location, SanDestin is a good resort.

Spacious condo and very clean

  • 5 of 5

The SANDESTIN resort was a great getaway for our family.

My husband played golf, we fished the ponds and the beach. We biked and ran all over the properties. We felt safe and everything is close and convenient.

We enjoyed the spacious condo and would definitely stay here again.

Totally impressed with Turnberry

  • 5 of 5

After experiencing a lengthy drive from Texas (due to unseasonal rain/flooding in Louisiana) that caused an 8 hour trip to be turned into a 15 hour trip, we were beyond elated to walk in to a condo that looked almost better than the online pictures! Plenty of space to accommodate everyone. Kitchen fully stocked with cooking utensils and pots/pans etc.

Great location just of the main street 98. A Walmart in close proximity to the left or the right. Steps away from the Turnberry complex pool and blocks away from beach. Though we did not ever use the free Tram service, we did see it circling frequently in the neighborhood. Dining galore nearby and our personal favorite the Baytowne Village with shops, ice cream, a carousel, live music etc within walking distance from our doorstep.

Turnberry has the best of both worlds: lake and golf course view, pool steps away and beach down the street!

We will definitely be back! This is once case of Expectations being Exceeded!

Thank you for making our vacation carefree!
