"After much research into options for staying in Destin, we chose to stay in this townhome located on the Sandestin Resort property and this place was perfect for our 3 family visit (3 couples, 2 children). I was hesitant due to one of the existing reviews, but took the chance and am glad we did! The place is clean, well decorated and the owners were very accommodating and readily available. I also favor properties with keypad access, rather than hard key access, and this was great to have for all of us coming and going and not needing to keep up with or sharing multiple keys. The kitchen is stocked well for those who want to cook and there is a lovely large dining table for seating (we wanted to take it home with us!). The home is on the bay side with beautiful views and is only a short drive to beach access. As a frequent beach goer, usually staying on the beach, the access and distance was no problem! For the active individual, walking to the access would be an option and from memory would be about 2 miles crossing a busy intersection. Additionally, the property site is great for those active individuals wanting to bike, walk or run the resort property. For those with activity restrictions, the property does require a flight of stairs for access and an additional flight of stairs for one of the rooms (which I believe is mentioned in the property description). My only recommendations would be for privacy curtains between the downstairs bedroom and living room area and secondly, for new pillows and additional linens (towels, pillow cases, sheets, blankets); however, this was merely due to the size of our group and I'm sure if we had asked, these likely would have been made available. And, there is a washer/dryer for those who are motivated to do laundry :). Make sure to bring your own beach towels and beach necessities (chairs, any toys, etc). The reasons for rating 4 stars instead of 5 are really nit-picky and only reflect the following: 1. Not directly on beach. 2. Linens as previously mentioned. 3. No outdoor porch/deck seating directly connected to property. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend (for even the discerning traveler) and definitely return!"
