Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 23, 2016
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Majestic Sun! THE place to be in Destin! This is a LUXURY RESORT condominium overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The views are spectacular in this 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom deluxe unit that sleeps eight comfortably.

This is a very open, bright, and cheerful condo featuring 9 ft. ceilings throughout. It is recently renovated so that everything is very new, clean, and comfortable for our guests. There is fresh paint and new lighting throughout, new refrigerator, new washer/dryer, new furniture, linens, and the list goes on!! EVERTHING is very clean and extremely comfortable.

There are two master suites each with their own private bath. One has a king size bed and the other has two doubles. The bedrooms are very spacious and both have HDTV. Each bedroom features new linens, draperies and décor. Both bedrooms have plenty of closet and dresser drawer space and both have private baths with tiled showers, new lighting and paint. The master bath has a double vanity.

The family room is large and spacious with a new queen size sleeper sofa in the living room. Eight can sleep comfortably and nobody is stuck with a bunk in the hall! There is a 50” flat screen LED TV. The oversized glass doors leading to the balcony are extra-large to take in the priceless view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The balcony has magnificent full-on views of the Gulf of Mexico and the beach! There is a table and chairs so sit back, relax, enjoy the view, nice breeze, ocean waves and sunshine or catch a sunset as it disappears into the Gulf.

The dining room table can seat your family comfortably and there’s a breakfast bar with seating for hanging out with the chef in the family. You will love the dining room chandelier that is filled with glitz and glam reflecting the light in such a beautiful way as it sends prisms around the room. Every detail has been considered, from the art on the walls down to the reflective vases that add both charm and glitter to this fabulous space.

The kitchen is quite nice to cook in and boasts a full size pantry to store all your groceries. It is fully stocked with plenty of pots, pans, dishes, silverware, glassware, bake wear, all the utensils and small appliances needed. There is a a built in microwave, dishwasher, range and a new refrigerator that keeps everything fresh and cold. Yes, you can see the views of the Gulf from the kitchen and dining room too!

The décor throughout is classy beach. The cool blue and white colors are reminiscent of the Greek Islands or a wonderful coastal cottage.

You will enjoy over 2000 feet of unspoiled sugar white Gulf beaches right in front of the building. There is a beach bar tiki hut with cold drinks as well as chair, umbrella and water craft rentals.

There is the Seascape 18-hole Championship Golf Course right behind the building so pack your clubs. No matter what direction you look, the views are awesome. The fitness buff will love the 8 tennis courts and on-site, state of the art fitness center. This is a resort gated community with on-site concierge services. It has an ATM and DVD rental in the lobby and newspaper boxes located out front.

POOL! Yes the pools are truly magnificent. The pools consist of a 3200 square foot, multi-level, indoor/outdoor pool with fountains, waterfall accents, 2 hot tubs, and the prettiest landscaping around with palm trees and flowers. There is a shower area to wash off the sand when you come up from the beach. The property has nature, cycling and jogging paths. There are on-site bicycle rentals and grab a snow-cone while you’re there. There are two restaurants on the grounds and a third located just down the road that sits directly on the beach with great views.

Watch the dolphins play in the mornings while you have your coffee on your private balcony overlooking the Gulf. In the evening you will see the most beautiful sunsets. It is heavenly.

You will love the convenience of being able to walk to restaurants while the Silver Sands Outlet Mall is just a short drive away. There is also plenty of nearby entertainment. The location on Scenic Gulf Drive is perfect. This is the best area in all of Destin and The Majestic Sun is THE PLACE TO BE. It truly is majestic.

About the Owner

We came for a vacation and fell in love with Destin. We began doing vacation rentals in 2007. It gives us great joy to rent to our vacationing guests and hear about what a wonderful time they had in Destin. Most of our guests come back year after year. We feel like they are family. We are always available for our guests and take great pride in giving each of them excellent customer service. Making wonderful family memories in Destin is what it is all about. We have so many with our own children.

Great Overall with a few minor hiccups

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 included a 2 year old & a 5 year old, and all 8 of us were comfortable staying here. It was clean, well decorated, comfortable, and it offered a stunning view of the ocean.

I have just 2 minor critiques of the home. First, there were very few places to hang up our wet towels (whether from the beach or the shower). Once, when we draped a few wet bathing suits on the balcony railing, someone from below sharply informed us we couldn't dry anything in that manner. Second, the dryer took double the amount of time you'd expect a load of wash to take to dry. We were thankful to be able to take clean clothes home with us!

A couple of things that put a damper on our stay: First, some constructionis being done on the building. As a result, on Thursday and Friday of our stay, the main part of the outdoor pool was taped off, and to go from the outside to the inside of the pool area literally required walking all the way around the building. When you have short legs and just want to get back to the pool, that's annoying (again, a 5 year old and a 2 year old traveled with us). When a couple of the adults in our group simply walked under the tape for the normal, quick cut through, the other people around the pool gave us all rude looks and made sideways comments. It felt hostile! The second detail is the sanding of the walkway just outside of the unit. It was so loud that even from the inside with a closed door, it was deafening, and it lasted all afternoon Thursday and all morning Friday. It was very unpleasant.

The owners aren't responsible for either of the details related to the construction projects in the building, therefore I'm keeping our rating at a 5 star. Further, they worked with us at the last minute to pro-rate one night for us to come up just a bit earlier, which worked out really well for our group. All in all it was a wonderful trip, we had perfect weather, we had the beach to ourselves, and the Destin area is our new favorite beach destination.

Owner's Response: Thank you for being our guests and for the wonderful five star review. We are so glad that you love the location, décor, cleanliness, and of course the stunning view of the Gulf of Mexico. In the master bedroom closet we supply a portable drying rack for our guests to use on the balcony for beach towels and bathing suits. The condo rules don't allow drying on the balcony rails in order to keep the community looking nice and for safety of guests below in case anything falls. We have had the dryer lint duct cleaned and it is working fine. Majestic Sun is rated as the number one family resort in Destin for its wonderful amenities, exceptional upkeep, and gorgeous tropical landscaping. This fall there is a major undertaking of painting the buildings, and updating the walkways and swimming pools. We wish the work would have been quieter during your stay and that the workers would not have been harsh with you. We are always available for all of our guests and were more than happy to work out your date changes. Again, thank you for the excellent review. We are thrilled that you had a wonderful trip and that everything worked perfectly for your group. We hope that you will return often and know that the development looks great and all the work is completed.

The condo was great! Very clean and conveniently located on the second floor.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Majestic Sun and our first in this condo. It was very clean and nicely decorated. I really liked being on the second floor and not having to take the elevator and just use the stairs. The kitchen is totally stocked. They even had a crockpot. My only suggestion is to get a new broom. The one in the condo is pretty old and worn out.

Amazing view, convenient location, clean condo, perfect trip!!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we walked into the condo we were pleased. It was clean, spacious, and had a gorgeous view. We traveled with our two small children and they had lots of room to play and loved being close to the beach and pool. We ate most breakfasts and lunches in the condo and it was equipped with everything we needed. The closet in the bedroom with beach chairs and accessories was great as well. We used the chairs each time we went to the beach. I loved having the washer and dryer in the unit. With small kids, we go through a lot of clothes so I was able to do laundry while we were there and only came home with a small amount of dirty clothes. We lived in Destin for 3 years and love it so we couldn't wait to take our kids back to experience it for themselves. I would definitely stay in this unit again!! The trip was perfect and I have no complaints about the condo.

Excellent Location!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the condo was perfect! The cleanliness, the stocked kitchen, and the location of the room were great. You can not beat the view from the balcony. We didn't have to rely on waiting for an elevator, we used the stairs the entire time. We will definitely be back!
