Poppy's Place...Experience Paradise!!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Poppy's Place on Destin's Gulf Coast! We invite you to make wonderful memories in our two bedroom, two bath condo overlooking beautiful white sands, crashing waves, and spectacular sunsets.

After settling in, put on your flip flops, grab a towel and cooler, and head to the beach, which is only a hop, skip, and a jump away. Obviously, fun in the sun can last all day, but if you want a short break from playing in the surf and building sand castles, stretch out on a lounge chair under a protective umbrella with a good book (two chairs and an umbrella provided). Or, can you imagine closing your eyes and catching a quick nap as the ocean breeze gently kisses your cheeks? Ahhhh....

After rinsing the granules of sand from between your toes, cross the boardwalk back to Mainsail where you will enjoy wonderful amenities. Included are two pools, a kids' play area, hot tub, tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, game room, grills, and workout facilities. If that isn't enough, your home away from home is surrounded by wonderful restaurants and fun attractions for all. If you're adventurous, consider deep sea fishing, parasailing, and bungee jumping, but if you'd rather go shopping or see a first-run movie, Silver Sands Premium Outlet is directly across the main highway, and Destin Commons is a few miles down the road. Of course, fresh seafood can be found wherever you turn, but burgers, pizza, and ice cream are never in short supply. Yum!

Another option is to head back to the property for a cookout at the poolside grill or a homemade meal in the condo. Finally, finish your day splashing in the hot tub, watching videos, and playing board games with your loved ones or the new friends you make along the way.

Whew! I guess we could have just said that there's no way not to have fun if you choose to stay at 481 Mainsail. So come and experience paradise at Poppy's Place. We are glad to have you, and you'll be glad you did!

About owner/property manager

We are four siblings from Georgia and South Carolina. Our father worked for IBM (I've Been Moved), so we've lived in several places around the United States. Together we have 9 wonderful children ranging in ages from 10-22. The oldest named our dad Poppy... hence Poppy's Place.

Why owner/property manager chose Miramar Beach

Our father died a few years back and left his condo to us to do with as we please. It is our hope that it allows us to spend more time together as family, but it also gives us the opportunity to share the beauty of Destin, Florida with others. Over the years, we have all greatly enjoyed the privilege of vacationing at the world-famous Emerald Coast and hope to do so for many years to come.

What makes this condo unique

Let's be honest, the main benefit of renting Poppy's Place is the fact that it sits on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. If you have to be inside, however, the view from our balcony is breathtaking, and the condo itself is clean, comfortable, and fully equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy a wonderful vacation. Not to mention, the amenities at Mainsail are first rate. When choosing between our place and others, we'd say one perk is the lower price. We need to rent as much as possible in order to cover our costs, so we're hoping this will help us to do so.

481 Poppy's Place

  • 5 of 5

It was incredible! From the moment we walked in, you could see how incredibly clean it was. The view was wonderful, the location could not have been any better. Across the road was the Silver Sands Outlets, restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. But mainly we were impressed with the how clean it was and beauty of the condo. Thank you so much for sharing with us. Gail, Loudon, TN

Best location in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Destin a few times and this is the nicest condo we've stayed in. It's literally steps from the beach (no road to cross). It's across 98 from the outlets and a couple of minutes to Sandestin (where we like to go in the evenings). Poppy's Place seems brand new and you can tell it's well taken care of. It's truly owner owned and operated! All of the siblings I corresponded with were so helpful and pleasant. We had everything we needed and plenty of room for our family of 4. It's on the top floor so it was quiet and had more windows. The view from the balcony was amazing, overlooking the ocean. There are 2 pools at Mainsail. One is bigger and beachside but we only used the smaller heated one because it was cooler when we went. Our girls liked the shuffleboard beside the tennis courts. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, well maintained condo directly on the beach, this is it! The further West you go, traffic is a nightmare trying to get somewhere to eat in the evenings (although McGuire's is still worth the drive and wait). I was glad we were a little east and still had plenty of restaurants to choose from. Another Broken Egg, Hammerhead's, Ben & Jerry's ice cream and Roberto's Pizza (delivery) are so close and a few of our favorites. Oh and a Winn-Dixie and CVS are across the street as well. I would highly recommend Poppy's Place and stay here again!

Beautiful and well maintained condo. Excellent location and view.

  • 5 of 5

Poppy's Place is the perfect place to spend an unforgettable vacation with family and friends. Located on one of the best sections of Miramar beach, walking distance to well known supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, coffee shop, and shopping center. The condo looks like brand new and the owners did an amazing job decorating it. Highly recommended for your next vacation in Destin.
