"This is a great unit in a wonderful, family-friendly property (Sandestin/Elation). Baytown Wharf is steps away with shopping, eating and tons of entertainment for both kids and adults! And the Elation pool was incredible, with a swimming pool "beach" area. I would highly recommend this unit and property to a friend and would gladly stay there again....with a few caveats. 1) You will not be dealing with the owner on this rental. You will be dealing with Panhandle Getaways. I wouldn't say our experience with them was awesome. They booked us for a day later than what we booked through VRBO. We never approved this later date, it was just booked unbeknownst to us. I discovered this by reading the fine print, otherwise we would have showed up in Destin a day early with nowhere to stay. When we tried to call Panhandle Getaways about this, they were difficult to reach. So, read the fine print when booking this unit. 2). When you arrive, there will be one roll of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels. That's it. You have to buy whatever you use beyond that; toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher detergent laundry detergent, salt, pepper, cooking spray, etc. The rate on this unit is very affordable so I get why there aren't more start-up products in the unit. But it would have been nice to know ahead of time. We would have packed more kitchen/bathroom supplies. 3) This is not a beachfront property. If you search VRBO this turns up as a beachfront property, but it's not. You have to drive a very short distance to access the Sandestin beach....which is extremely crowded. Head East of of Elation and hit up one of the beaches on Highway 30A. You may have to pay a little bit to access these beaches, but the area is wonderful and the beaches are MUCH less crowded. Henderson Beach was nice too, but you'll have to fight traffic West of the unit to get there. So....that's my review! Long story short, great unit, but read the fine print, pack extra stuff if necessary, and know that you will not walk out on the beach from this unit. Hope this helps!"
