About Pamela Atkins

I am a mother and attorney living between my homes in Sandestin and Atlanta. My 16 year old son and I have been enjoying the Fort Walton Beach area for over 14 years.

Pamela Atkins purchased this house in 2005

Why Pamela Atkins chose Sandestin

We have been enjoying the area for many years. We chose this area because we love the white sand beaches and crystal clear, warm water of the Gulf. Sandestin is family friendly providing a safe environment for children of all ages to explore with biking, nature trails, golf, tennis, swimming, boating, and so much more.

What makes this house unique

Our home is directly across from the Bungalo pool and putting green and near the Raven and Baytowne golf course. Our home contains many vacation extras including games, movies, bikes, fishing polls, tennis rackets, football, kite, horseshoes, bocce, beach/water toys, and much more. We are a short walk or tram/bike/car ride to beautiful beaches, Marina, Tennis Center, the Village at Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard. The Bungalos at Sandestin is a special neighborhood for an unforgettable getaway.

Great rental home for families in a resort setting and nice access to beach nearby

  • 5 of 5
Very nice home with a wide range of amenities and family friendly features. The rental was about 30 steps from very nice swimming pool and deck area. The home has three nice sized bedrooms which nicely accommodates 2 king, 2 queen and 4+ children. Also has four good sized bathrooms. The home includes a wide range of nice offerings including bikes and a range of beach toys including body boards, beach chairs and umbrellas.

The rental also includes a computer and WiFi connection. There also also a wide variety of DVD's and VHS tapes for watching, along with a big selection of board games.

There is a shuttle bus which picks up guests approximately one block away and with a 10 minute ride, it takes you to the beach on the gulf.

The accommodation was very nice and well decorated. We felt that the Fins Family were very generous with the range of items available to use during our stay.

Home has been taken very good care of. Pamela answered all questions and leaves plenty of information on things to do and see. Loved the area, the home, and everything about the area. I have stayed in Sandestin before, but would definitely come back to this home for future visits.

Pool not heated (broken)

  • 3 of 5
I would have given the review a 5 but we were very disappointed that the heater in the pool was broken after it being advertised that it was heated. Upon arrival the owner told us the heater just broke but then later told us it has been not working for over a year. This is a big miss considering the time of year and potential weather issues. We picked this specifically for the heated pool and it was not usable because of the temperature of the water.

The home was very nice, almost everything we could want or need. More outdoor seating would be great though. The San Destin resort is awesome and would definitely go again but would want to be in a neighborhood with full working amenities as promised.

Owner's Response: In 2014, the Bungalo Home Owner's Association completed the replacement of the pool heater and it is working. In general, the pool heater is run on the weekends and during holiday periods. This owner cannot guarantee the dates and times the heater will be functioning since this is up to the neighborhood association. There are two other heated pools available for use in the event this heater is not functioning, but these pools require a trip to another area within the resort.
