Guestbook comments from the owner
Our 12th year at Mainsail - our 2nd year at Pope's Paradise. Definately our favorite condo - our kids were 6 & 9 and now one is graduating college and one is going to college...They say they want to come back until they get married and have kids. Maybe at that point it will be their turn to pay the rent ...I hope so...I'm old and poor. This is a wonderful vacation, and I hope we have many more. The weather and food are great - We have relatives & friends come in from Philly and Ft Worth - Both families staying at The Mainsail, 17 in all this year. What a day. Going to the beach now...

Lona is a retired banker that spends much of her time doing Rotary International work and serving on many boards in their community.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this condo in 2000

After visiting Destin and Mainsail for many years with friends, it was time to look around to purchase our own paradise. Looking around and realizing there was not a better place that was smaller complex, secure and well managed not to mention the best beach in town took us back to Mainsail. Conveniently located to everything Mainsail has truly become 'Popes Paradise' for us, our many returning guests and our kids and grandkids.

It has been mentioned more times that not how well appointed our condo is, from spices to paper products and more... it is truly a home away from home. NO need to pack all the extras when staying at Popes Paradise you will feel like you have come home~!

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5
Nice place! This condo was very clean, nicely decorated, and had everything needed for our stay. The owner was easy to work with, and called to make sure everything was to our liking. It felt more like staying at a friends home than a rental.

Family vacation

My family stayed at Pope's Paradise the week of July 27th. The condo is beautiful. We have stayed at the Mainsail Resort twice before. Pope's Paradise was by far the nicest condo we have rented. Lona was great to work with!

ALREADY LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT SUMMER AT "POPE'S PARADISE!"

ALREADY LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT SUMMER AT "POPE'S PARADISE!"
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been vacationing in Destin for more than 20 years. "Pope'Paradise" is by far the most comfortable, accommodating and best kept secret on the beach! We have two boys that are ages 10 and 7, and it was such an easy walk to and from the beach, several times a day! The pool was nice, locarion was perfect and we are ready for our (now annual) trip to "Pope's Paradise". Keep our deposit and keep us on the calendar for at least the next 20 years!

My husband and I were looking for a comfortable and well-appointed condo for our beach stay and Pope's Paradise was just what we were looking for. The beach front location had beautiful views and we enjoyed starting off each day sitting on the balcony with our coffee and taking in the beautiful ocean views. The condo had comfortable beds which was very important to us and the living room furniture was comfortable as well. The condo was well-supplied with everything we needed. We will be sure to return again!

A GET AWAY WORTH VISITING AND REVISITING!

  • 5 of 5
Our week was enhanced by our choosing this wonderful condo. My husband had only 1 desire and that was to be close to the beach where he had adequate elevators. We were quite close, had easy elevator and stairway access, and all with a wonderful view. The condo made all of us aware that the owners really did care that we were well taken care of and comfortable. Personal touches were evident throughout. The sofa was extraordinary and roomy for us all, the decor was wonderful and fun, as well as, functional, and the appointments were abundant and we felt our every need was met. A truly enjoyable stay.
