About the property

Kids enjoy this unit with the gaming consoles and the pool right outside.

This lockout unit (2 bedrooms) is very close to parking and the pool area for ultimate convenience.

The Pool area does not impact quietness of this unit. Kids can have their own area to call their own here! The unit has a patio for each unit of the lockouts (2 patios).

The Bar-B-Que area is also right outside the unit and will have a brand new Pagoda for newly designed bar-b-que area to shield from the sun or rain. Shuttle passes included.

About Paul Neese

I'm a Louisiana Native and LSU fan! My family and I love to come visit this beautiful coastline during the summer and throughout the year. Great get away to have. I'm very happy and blessed to have this Luau unit.

I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I do!

Paul Neese purchased this condo in 2012

Why Paul Neese chose Destin Area

Convenience is the key word here. park within steps of the unit (it's on the first floor) and when you are ready to bar-b-que its' right off of your patio area. This is a newly totally redone Bar-B-que area with a Pagoda. Also the pool will take about a 30-40 second walk down the hall, out the door and about 40 steps over to the Waterfall pool area! This is also rented together with 2 separate units with front doors to each unit and sharing a foyer when coming into the unit. The work out facility is literally about 25 ft down the hall from your front door! no excuses!! Shuttle pass to all of the Sandestin area is included!

What makes this condo unique

Close to parking and pool and has 2 patios, one for each of the separate lock out units and the Bar-B-Que area is close by too.

Wonderful vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Sandestin location is wonderful with an abundance of white sand and great restaurants. The pool at the Luau is incredible -- no chlorine!

The owner provided all of the info we needed to access the unit before we arrived so the entire trip began on a good note.

This was our second visit to this unit and I would recommend it.

We loved every minute and can't wait to return in the fall!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay at Sandestin every year. We have since I was a teenager and now I have my own. Luau is our favorite on the property because of the beautiful salt water pool with a waterfall and all the gorgeous landscaping. And the beach is a short stroll away. I must say my family is picky. We want to feel as if we are a million miles away on some tropical island. The landscaping, to me, makes for the perfect relaxing tropical environment. The unit itself is in the most convenient location. Close enough to the parking lot that loading and unloading isn't a chore, right across the hall from the gym, the barbecue/grilling area is steps away from your patio, and the pool is literally right around the corner. This unit was perfect for my family and we will definitely be back. By the way, Paul Neese is phenomenal! We texted him with a couple of questions during our stay. He immediately replied and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this unit with Mr Neese! He does not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

our room at the Luau was amazing and had the perfect location!!! We could walk out onto two separate patios, have yard for the kids to play, and a whole grilling area behind us that was perfect for entertaining! The ease of access was wonderful!....parking, pool access, grilling, you name it... All footsteps away! The unit was clean and inviting, with many amenities!...also kids toys for the beach and ocean to use! I highly recommend staying here...we will be back for another visit!

Owner's Response: Stephanie, I'm glad you guys enjoyed your stay! I know you will hate to leave! That bar-b-que area with pagoda is brand new as of this early spring. It is nice along with the side yard, parking and Lagoon pool close by without elevators to deal with! Please come back soon, the fall is one of the best times to come here! Thanks, Paul

Great unit!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was so accommodating! The condo was spacious and very clean. We loved the three patios and grass yard for our younger kids to play! Super convenient to our cars and the pool! Walking distance to the Hilton's basketball courts and putt putt! No hindrance of the elevator being on the ground floor. Loved the views from the top of the building! Perfect for spring break busy season! We will definitely rent again! Being an owner of property myself, it was a great experience!

Great Ground Floor Condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved the convenience of this ground floor condo. The Luau is a short walk to the beach with an amazing pool. We were able to use the grills right outside the condo several nights during our stay. Paul was extremely easy to work with. He always responded to my questions in a timely manner.
