About Gwen / Bud

Owners live in Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama.

Gwen / Bud purchased this condo in 2004

Why Gwen / Bud chose Destin Area

We chose this resort because of the wonderful location. It is an exclusive resort with 5 pools, health club, resturant on site. One of the Top 5 USA Tennis Resorts 'Tennis Magazine' . Our Building overlooks The Private Preserve. It is next door to Sandestin Beach Resort and close to the popular Baytowne Wharf for all of your shopping needs and Resturants along with entertainment daily. Within 1 mile of The Outlet Mall and grocery stores along with boutique shopping. There is a childs program during the summer months and various activities by the pool on the weekends and during the week in the summer.

We love to get away to the private setting, yet outside the resort you have so much to offer for entertainment for the whole family,

Award Winning Resturant on site, great shopping. Close to Baytowne Wharf.

What makes this condo unique

It has a New Beach Bar that serves Lunch and Dinner and Drinks by Beach Pool. Private Cabana's for rent by the Beach Pool. There is a tiki bar also located by the Health Club for lunch and Dinner and big screen T.V.'s. You can dress and never leave the property to have dinner at one of Destins finest "'Ocean Club" There are 5 pools to enjoy and hot tubs for a late afternoon break. Grills are at each building. .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the unit ! Decorated great and such a warm and comfortable place. All the amenities that we needed. We loved the Kitchen. It was decorated nice and had everything we needed. The pool was great and the new Beach bar served the best lunch. The beach was so nice and not as crowded as where we have stayed before. We will definitely be back.

Bud was so friendly from start to finish. His 2BR condo is updated and super spacious. Phenomenal views from the living room AND the master bedroom. This condo is perfect for families or couples. Great new tiki hut and easy access to Baytowne, Destin and 30A. I will definitely be staying here again and have already highly recommended to friends. Thanks again Bud!

Great stay!!!

We really enjoyed our stay here! Location was wonderful! The condo was just as described- very nicely decorated, comfortable and we felt very at home! Loved the kitchen area with all the utensils and cookware that we needed. Very short walk to the beach from the condo. Pool areas were very nice and enjoyed by the teenagers that were with us. Owner was great to work with and so very helpful!! Can't wait to come back!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The unit was furnished very nice and well equipped kitchen with nice stainless appliances and granite. We enjoyed cooking in a few nights and had everything we needed to entertain. The bedrooms were very spacious and especially the Master and the Master Bath having 2 vanities. We enjoyed watching the tennis player early in the morning while drinking coffee. The view of the water was nice and the pool at the building was fantastic. Heated and nice new pool lounge chairs. Tiki bar at pool and beach was great for lunch and late afternoon snacks and drinks.

Enjoyed our stay and will be Back.

Nice room

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this room. It was reasonably well decorated, functional and clean. The view from the balcony was okay; a side view with a view of mostly the other condo buildings, tennis courts, trees and some gulf in the distance. Overall not bad, just not great. Too bad the railing wasn't glass, as it was pretty much what you see when sitting down and trying to enjoy the view. The beds were comfortable and well decorated. There were a few items that should be addressed by the owner - no kleenexs supplied, barely enough hand soap (almost empty when we arrived), and the sliding door to the balcony is hard to open as well as the front door being ackward to close. How about springing for a 55" TV in the living room, since they aren't that expensive these days!
