BEAUTIFUL EMERALD COAST, WHITE SUGARY SAND, WIFI

Beach Retreat Cottages Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

We completed a $50,000 remodeling project on our unit in May of 2008. This is the most beautiful place in the Sandprints complex. The first thing you will notice when you walk in the door is how the living room and kitchen are so open and airy. The entire first floor has been tiled. The kitchen has granite counter tops with an Italian designer-tile back splash, a beautiful stainless steel sink with high-end brushed silver faucets and matching light fixtures. The living room has a flat screen TV and DVD player, which can be viewed from the living room, dining room or the kitchen. All 3 bathrooms are tiled with granite counter tops and inset sinks. The two showers have been tiled from floor to ceiling with an Italian designer-tile look and feel. All rooms have been freshly painted, crown molding, eight inch base boards with pocket lighting throughout the unit. A flat screen TV and DVD has been installed in the master bedroom and a regular TV is in the guest bedroom. New carpeting has been added to the second floor. So far, the reviews have been outstanding.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! What could be better than being just a few steps from the most beautiful emerald green waters and white sandy beaches, shopping, malls, eateries, golf, fishing, and many other water activities? Well, our beautifully furnished and well maintained condo is just the place for you to experience all this and more!!

From our private patio off the kitchen, enjoy your morning coffee and in the evening your marguerita watching the beautiful sunset. Just one short walking block is the public beach offering chaise lounges, umbrellas, clean restrooms and showers also adjacent is the famous Pompano Joe Restaurant and Tiki Bar Grill. If the pool is more your choice, the unit overlooks this area which is complete with tables, chaise lounges, umbrellas and restrooms. Either case...all you need is your towel and suntan lotion. SANDPRINTS complex is quiet and family oriented. COME AND ENJOY A BIT OF PARADISE AT SANDPRINTS - UNIT D-8!!

picture unavailable at at this time. This unit is co-owned with my husband, me, and our son. We purchased the condo unit in 1990 and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of Destin. Its gorgeous!

The Owner purchased this condo in 1991

We fell in love with the most beautiful beach in the world. The water is a deep emerald green. The sands are powdery white that glissen in the sunlight. And such spectacular sunsets. Nothing beats Miramar Beach.

Besides the beautiful beach that is just a block from our condo, the famous Pompano Joe restaurant is a few steps away where you can get a fabulous marguerita, a sandwich or full dinner. There are also lounge chairs with umbrellas for a small fee of the day or a few hours. There are just about any kind of stores you can name, from a Wallmart to Chico's and the like. All kinds of sports are close by, fishing, parasailing, golfing, tennis, etc.

Felt at home

The owners were awesome to work with. The layout of the condo was very well thought out. My family and I felt we were right at home rather than on vacation. The condo had a sense of coziness and also an element of privacy if you wanted it. We have stayed in sandprints before, this unit by far more than exceeded expectation. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a place to stay in Destin. We plan on going back next summer and are already counting down the days when we go back. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your place.....Mike, Riley, Reagan, & Shannon...P.S.-Just to add My wife and I had 3 surgeries between us this summer, she was unable to go due to her work schedule. I am a teacher and have the summers off so I was able to take my girls for a last minute vacation. Michael helped me out and was tremendous in making this trip possible...thanks again. 5 out of 5 in my book.

Michael;
The condo was wonderful. A bit rainy towards the end of the week, but we had a fantastic time non the less.
Look forward to heading back soon.

FILTHY

despite being advertised as non smoking, we opened the door and smelled stale cigarette smoke masked with air freshener. ceiling fans had layers of dust caked on blades, dirt on ceiling where blades went around, carpets were stained throughout, dust bunnies hanging from ceiling. condo decor is very nice and modern but very filthy. would not recommend unless you want to clean entire space before starting your vacation.
Owner's Response: It is with sadness that I read your review and I take your comments seriously. My unit is a non-smoking unit and I was unaware of any issues with the condo until you contacted me during your stay. I touched base with my cleaner and the people who stayed in the unit the week before and neither of them smoked but they also commented about the smoke. Immediately, I had a number of contractors go into the condo to identify the problem. It was discovered that there was a hole in the dry wall behind the air handler. The consensus was that the hole allowed the air handler to suck smoke from either the unit below or beside my unit. We have fixed the hole and have had no problems with the smell of smoke since.

As for the cleanliness issues you brought up, I made a trip down to the condo to meet with my cleaning people and reviewed your comments and we did a walk thru to talk about the issues. I have been assured that cleaning issues will be resolved in the future.

Again, I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your trip to my condo and I take your comments seriously. However, please keep in mind that at this time, I have 7 comments posted to this website. Of those 6 other comments, 5 of them rated the condo a 5 out of 5 and one rated it a 4 out of 5. Your comment remains the sole negative comment posted.

2012 Vacation

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2012

The Good: Condo was very clean. Pictures described property well. Short walk to beach. About 500ft or a half a block. The rates were reasonable and the owner seemed very professional. Many of the other condos in area were several hundred dollars more. No scams here, you get what you see. Only complaint was the following: No toilet paper in condo on arrival, no paper towels, one trash bag, no dish soap, no laundry detergent, ect. So when you get here youll have to go straight to the store and buy all the basics, or bring it with you. Beaches are great, traffic sucks, shopping and restraunt gallore. Outlet malls close by. Did I say shopping gallore? Name a store and its down the road.
Our favorite things in area: Drive to the Destin Harbor area, go over the bridge. As soon as you get over the bridge, do a U-Turn and find the small access road to the parking area by the bridge. If you like to snorkel or shell, this is a great area for the family. There are tons of hermit crabs walking around in the shallows under and around the bridge. People were renting pontoons to come over here and park, when you can drive for free. We also drove to vortex springs. An absolute blast for the kids. Visit there website and see if its for you. If you go, rent a 15 dollar wetsuit. Best 15 bucks we spent. Its an hour drive but a good break from the salt water and Destin area.
Trust these people. But bring your own TP. Thank you for the memories.
