My husband and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary and we have been to Destin all most every year, but never stayed on the beach. I must say we chose The BEST. The first thing we did was go to the balcony and see the breathtaking beach!! This condo was the only one that had its own boxed in private balcony. It is close to restaurants so we walked and picked up takeout and walked back to enjoy a private dinner on the balcony!! We plan to enjoy and celebrate every year at Sticks In the Sand!!
