Overview

Sandestin Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 1 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom on the Bay

Luxury VIP villa:

Quiet privacy and water views prevail in this corner townhouse located on pristine Choctawhatchee Bay facing six miles of water and incredible sunsets. An electric fireplace adds to the cozy atmosphere at night. Enjoy the refreshing pool around the corner. Upgraded kitchen includes sub-zero fridge, convection oven and is chocked full of Pampered Chef tools for those who like to cook and grill. Resort restaurants are 1 mile away for those who don't want to touch the kitchen.

The high vaulted ceilings give the main room an expansive feel. With the enclosed lanai, there is plenty of space to spread out so you can relax and experience a vacation as you should; no worries, lots of entertainment, and relaxing waters to gaze on at the end of the day.

Easy bike or car ride to the beach or The Village of Baytowne Wharf - a New Orleans styled village featuring restaurants, bars, shops, live music, a merry-go-round, zip line, winter ice skating and seasonal fireworks.

Breathe deeply the ambience of this perfect vacation spot which is as pretty as Disney and entertaining as a nature preserve. Frequent heron, bird and dolphin sightings. Enjoy the fun of the beach and the busy, night life in the Village, then come home to peaceful quiet. North Shore properties are mostly non-rental units where residents keep an orderly but friendly complex. The owners, Chris and Joe Manion, reside full-time at their home next door. They are always happy to answer any questions that might make your stay more enjoyable.

Our renters call this airy unit 'dreamy,' 'first class,' 'The Ritz!' and 'the pictures don't do it justice.'

Sandestin® Golf and Beach Resort offers the most complete resort experience in North America. Located on Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, Sandestin is a 2,400-acre destination resort for all seasons and for all ages with its gorgeous 7-mile stretch of world-famous sugar-white sands and emerald green waters.

The resort boasts a pristine bay front, four championship golf courses, 15 world-class tennis courts, 19 swimming pools, a 98-slip marina, certified children's programs, a fitness center and spa, 65,000 square feet of meeting space and a pedestrian village featuring a host of boutique shops, top notch restaurants and nightlife venues. The nation’s largest designer outlet mall is less than a mile away for a diversion from the beach on a rainy day.

About Chris Manion

We left Chicago winters behind to live in this dreamy resort and wish to share it with as many as we can. The soul needs beauty to restore itself from time to time. We live on property, so if you need anything, we're close at hand. Our son is a Second Class Petty Officer for the U.S. Coast Guard; our daughter teaches high school English in Michigan. We are proud of them both and highly supportive of families and parents who raise them. We are happily married 38 years and love welcoming newlyweds!

Chris Manion purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Chris Manion chose Sandestin

People familiar with Sandestin repeatedly said that this unit was the nicest they'd stayed in - these were visitors who'd come here 20 or more years. We dismissed the comments the first few times; after the fourth comment, we began to take them seriously. We didn't realize we had such a gem! The resort's beauty is widely known; the peace at North Shore is rarely found. I don't think we'll ever tire of the water view...

What makes this townhome unique

You just can't get much closer to the water! In the 2nd picture with table and chairs, that's the Bay where the grass ends! Very spacious, calming decor matches the peacefulness outside.

We have beach chairs and an umbrella available for our guests, as well as water toys and horse shoes. Tennis on clay and hard court, 72 holes of incredible golf, great lessons from pros, kayaking (with the dolphins) on the Bay or Gulf, fishing & crabbing right out your door, #1 beaches in the continental US (per US Travel & Leisure).

The high vaulted ceilings give the main room an expansive feel. With the enclosed lanai, there is plenty of space to spread out so you and your family or friends can relax and experience a vacation as you should; no worries, lots of entertainment, and relaxing waters to gaze on at the end of the day. Hang out by the fire, grab a drink and some cards or dominoes, or peruse the book drawer: it's always stocked with a variety of good books. See how many satellites or meteors you can count from your private balcony. With no major city lights to bog up the sky, every visible star is waiting to twinkle at you and your loved ones. On calm nights, you'll see them reflected in the Bay's waters.

A Wonderful Find

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 10 nights at this amazing townhome. Perfect location, amazing owners and superb accommodations. We have visted Sandestin for many years now and this unit has been our favorite. Located on the shores of Chocktawatchee Bay, it is a quiet getaway spot with glorious sunrises and sunsets. The beach is a short drive or bike ride away and we think this is the nicest beach in all of Florida. When you walk through the door of this unit, it is so impressive with its high ceilings, beautiful furnishings and phenomenal views. It was so well equipped and very comfortable for two. The owners, who live next door, were always available to answer questions and are delightful people. The property is close to many good restaurants and shopping. All in all a wonderful find. We will be back.

feels like a home

  • 5 of 5

Quality furnishings with thoughtful accessories throughout makes this feel like a home. A terrific view of the bay, which provided many changing perspectives due to wind and sky patterns. A reasonably short walk takes one to the Gulf-side. Short drives to tourist activity, outlet shopping, and choice of good restaurants. The location itself is in a quiet, secluded area . . . the owners are next door for easy communication. An excellent stay for the two of us wanting to avoid some northern snow!

Our month in SanDestin

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and well equipped. It was great having the owners right there as we had a small gliche with the heating system - it was quickly attended to.

The shortcomings - the TV situation was a bit frustrating. The TV in the main room i.e. the living room is ancient and needs to be upgraded. Also, there is no guide channel (at least, we could not find it) so one has to resort to surfing which is a frustrating method to find a watchable program. The stove was a bit frustrating as well as the oven temperature is not dependable - presents a bit of a challenge for baking. We also were perplexed by having 2 dining tables in close proximity.

However, we very much enjoyed our stay and hope to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bringing these shortcomings to our attention. We have upgraded to a LED flat screen TV in the living room, and had the oven serviced so it bakes properly. We are ready for your return!

Weekend on the North Shore

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great weekend at your condo. The location is perfect on the North Shore. It was quite and the view was spectacular. The condo was much larger than we expected and it was in perfect shape. We walked the entire Sandestin complex and then relaxed on the deck. We will certainly visit again.

Beautiful Peaceful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Sandestin to get a break from the chaos. This place was perfect. Having the Bay right in our backyard and watching the beautiful sunsets (didn't wake up early enough for the sunrises) was exactly what we needed. I've never felt so rested. We didn't even turn on the TV once.
