Awesome Gulf Front Beach View from Huge Wrap Around Balcony


Property Details

Updated: Sep 26, 2016
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Condo Basics:

Two bedrooms; 2 bathrooms; living room with sleeper sofa; front balcony with connecting side balcony; dining room with queen Murphy bed; full kitchen; laundry area; sleeps 8 in beds. See active link for video tour of condo.

Two bedroom condominium sleeps up to 8 people in beds. Pak N Play available for small children. This beach front condo on the third floor has a rare 70 foot wrap around balcony that gives you a 270 degree view of the crystal white beach, emerald water and surrounding area – they just don’t make balconies like this anymore! Whether it is a volleyball game on the beach, pelicans fishing in the surf, dolphins playing in the emerald water, fishing boats leaving Destin harbor, or a beautiful setting sun; you can view it all from the 70 foot wrap around balcony. It is also great for catching the sun rise with early morning coffee, watching beach activities, sunbathing, reading, hanging out or enjoying evening cocktails while watching the sun drop into the beautiful gulf. You can dine al fresco on the side balcony, and listen to the surf as you see the stars after dark.

Sorry this took so long but just returned from France and still getting caught up. Our visit to your condo was wonderful. We truly love the location and it was a pleasure to rent from you. We all enjoyed your condo and of course look forward to doing it again next year. We were very happy campers.

Thanks, Jill

Mainsail @Destin

  • 4 of 5

The view and balcony were amazing. The condo, however needed some attention/updates as all livable spaces do. There are several electric outlets, coming out of the walls...particularly the master bathroom. We couldn't get the tv in the bedrooms to work other than 1 channel. The dryer vent hadn't been cleaned out for "awhile". Just normal wear and tear of living by the ocean. Otherwise, all was well.

Plenty of kitchen utensils to cook with...

Best on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Have been vacationing in Destin for 30 years and going from one condo to the next. We were happy with them all but this is the first time we really fell in love with one and knew we would no longer be doing the condo-hop. We were supposed to stay two weeks but the day before we left we found the condo was open for two days so we called Charles and rented the next two days. He is wonderful to work with. All the amenities you can need are there, but our favorite part was the proximity to the pool and beach, covered parking, and a gated community. I could recommend restaurants but Charles prints out a complete list of great places to eat and things to do. We didn't do any of the "things" but ate at plenty of the recommended restaurants A+.

Owner's Response: Hosting these Kentucky guests has been a real pleasure! They communicated well, followed the rules, gave us good feedback and made my housekeeper smile when she came to clean. We hope that they had a great time on the beach and will return soon.

Tried of the Michigan cold weather

  • 5 of 5

We were back for our second year to this wonderful condo and it was like coming home, it felt like it was our special place away from our home in Michigan. The weather was warmer this year we had our Pt. convertible and we had top down a lot this year. We loved seeing the sun rise sun and sun set from the deck. I turned 81 while we were there and it was a very special place to spend my birthday. The condo is well furnished and some of our family came for a few days and they all loved it. Grandchildren thought Grandma and Grandpa have been holding out on them. The condo is so quiet and all the staff is so friendly and we are looking forward to going back again next year. Bev and I would like to thank Charles and Suanne for sharing their condo with us. Pastor Ken and Bev from Michigan

We Still Love this Place!

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed our stay here for the second year in a row. We just love it. The setting is so beautiful with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets over the beach. The condo itself is wonderfully laid out and equipped with everything you might need. It is truly a special place!

Nice beachfront property for up to 6 people

  • 5 of 5

Condo was clean and fully stocked. It was right on the beach. Wrap around decks on the third floor gave a view from sunrise to sun set. Arrived from Oregon with friends for a wedding. Had a great time. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a beach front place to stay in Destin. Charles was easy to deal with. The paperwork was in order and our trip was smooth. We'll be back someday.
