Sandestin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Escape to one of northwest Florida's premiere resorts, Sandestin beach resort.........quietly nestled at the Pilot House in the resort's newest development, Baytowne Wharf, this one bedroom / two full bath comfortably sleeps four adults.

This 5 year old first floor condo is steps away from all the amenities of the Village of Baytowne Wharf - fourteen restaurants and bars, live music at the village amphitheater, picturesque marina, zip line, dozens of shops, Starbucks, and much, much more. You can spend your days at the rooftop pool, play on one of the resort's four golf courses, relax at the resort's day spa, bike or walk the many trails, enjoy a game of tennis at the tennis center, or fish in the bay or one of the many stocked lakes.

If its the surf and the sand you long for, a quick shuttle or bike ride from the condo will take you to the south's most beautiful beaches! Beachside service and a pool reserved for Baytowne guests are available for your use.

This casual, yet comfortable condo unit has a full kitchen, two full baths, 2 cable TV's and DVD players, internet access, washer / dryer, one king bed, a sofa that converts to a bed, and a spacious patio and small yard.

A Sandestin vacation is one where you can park your car and relax - everything you want is here on property, so there's no need to drive once you check in. Pilot House is the perfect place for your family vacation, a girls' weekend or the ultimate golfing trip. We've made many great memories at Sandestin and hope you have the opportunity to enjoy this little piece of paradise soon!

About Maria Ellis

Brad and Lori live in Birmingham. When they’re not at the beach, they love college football (Roll Tide!), golfing and hanging out with friends. Brad is in the family car business and Lori is in sales for a commercial carpet manufacturer.

Maria Ellis purchased this condo in 2007

Why Maria Ellis chose Sandestin

When we had the opportunity to purchase a vacation home, Sandestin was the easy choice. Since we have been spending vacations here at the resort for over 20 years; it was only fitting that we continue our own vacations with family and friends here at Sandestin. The resort allows you to quietly relax by the pool or be in the middle of it all in the Village with restaurants, nightlife, concerts and special events. There is something here for everyone!

What makes this condo unique

I love to spend my time on the rooftop pool at Pilot House, jogging on the trails around the resort, watching the sunset at the Marina or laying on the white beaches of the Gulf . . . I sometimes sneak away for a spa treatment or run over to the outlet mall (less than a mile from the resort entrance). Brad loves to play Baytowne or the Raven Golf Course on the Resort or take a 10 minute drive over to Kelly Plantation or Emerald Bay. Our first floor condo makes is convenient for loading and unloading luggage and groceries, as well as an easy way to ride into the backyard with bikes. Don’t miss out on the simple pleasure of taking a bike ride through the resort – there are miles of bike trails and great neighborhoods to explore! Our favorite part of Sandestin is the FOOD! You cannot go wrong with any of the resort’s restaurants. Our favorites include Marlin Grill (the crab cakes and calamari are a must!), Acme Oyster House (great po-boys), Barefoots Poolside Grill (at the Hilton’s Pool Deck), Busters (about a mile from the resort – great place to watch college football in a casual atmosphere), The Donut Hole (blueberry cake donut is to die for!), Red Bar at Grayton Beach, the Back Porch in Destin (a Destin landmark), and Cantina Loredo at Sandestin Grand Boulevard (wonderful Sunday Brunch). I could go on and on about all the great amenities of the resort – we invite you to come and experience it yourself!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for sharing your condo. We really enjoyed our stay. It was our first time to not stay on the beach. We found it very relaxing and quiet. It is a great value and we hope to go back. Chris at Another Broken Egg took great care of us every morning. We cheered on Alabama at Fat Tuesday and enjoyed the cool spa at the pool on the third level. Great vacation!

Excellent Bang for the Buck

  • 4 of 5
My family and I recently stayed in this condo during our family vacation. As others have mentioned, the condo was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. It seems to be secluded, but it's actually located against the main road, so the sound of early morning delivery trucks made it hard to sleep in. Baytowne Village is only steps away and my children absolutely loved it!!! There are so many wonderful restaurants, a huge playground, and even an arcade! The condo has folding chairs, umbrellas, and toys that we used at the beach that I thought was an excellent touch. It also has 2 full baths that made taking showers and getting ready for a family of 4 much easier. I must admit, we were all ready to depart by the 3rd day because the mattress on the bed as well as on the pull-out sofa were very uncomfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, but be prepared to purchase dishwashing liquid, toilet paper, coffee, and internet service..... Overall, my family and I made wonderful memories and enjoyed our stay in the Pilot House. This condo is hands down, an EXCELLENT bang for the buck!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us; we really appreciate it considering the amount of condos that are available on the resort and the Destin area. We value the feedback of our guests so Thank You for taking the time to write your review.

I'm sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with the location of the condo. We've been very fortunate over the years to have a full rental calendar with numerous repeat guests and the condo location continues to be a plus. While the unit is on the first floor, it does not sit directly on the main road of the resort. There is a very thick wooded natural area that separates the road from our unit and the entire building.

As the photos and description on VRBO show, the secluded small yard provides a great atmosphere to sit with friends and family early in the morning with a cup of coffee or after dinner with a cocktail. In fact, many of our guests love the shaded fenced yard, easy access to the Village and the small path that allows them to pull bikes right up to the back porch.

As for the deliveries, the resort is very busy this time of year and deliveries have to be made to keep the restaurants, bars and conference center supplied to accommodate the resort guests. The resort has always put the guests first and does not allow any delivery early in the morning.

In regards to the hardness of the mattresses, neither I nor my Rental Manager had any idea that this was a problem. I have asked that both mattresses be evaluated immediately to see what needs to be done to address this issue. If an adequate solution can not be found we will look at replacing both mattresses to make sure we are providing our guests with a comfortable nights sleep.

The items that you mentioned that were not included with your stay are really standard items that most condos do not normally provide. We provide enough toilet paper, paper towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner to get the guests vacation started, but are unable to keep the unit completely stocked and still offer the low rates that have made our condo so popular.

Finally, we do offer Internet access to our guests for a very nominal charge of only $5 per day or a maximum charge of $15 for the entire stay. (Stay 3 nights $15, Stay 7 nights $15)

Thanks again for staying with us and if you should decide to stay again, please remember that my Rental Manager (Nikki) lives 5 minutes from the resort and is available to help with any issue that arises during your stay.

A fantastic spring getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I recently took my children to this condo and it was amazing! It is so inviting and warm with wonderful beachy touches. Clean, cozy, quaint, and comfortable are just a few of the words I would use. From the secluded patio perfect for taking morning coffee to the large TVs great for a rainy afternoon movie to the well-supplied kitchen which made it easy to fix snacks...this Pilot House condo is just right. It is quiet enough for sleeping late but the hustle and bustle of Baytowne Village is just steps away when a little more excitement is needed. Baytowne is full of fun...great shopping and restaurants, a huge playground, and fun kid activities like a real carousel! The beach is just a short drive away and the gorgeous pool is only an elevator ride up! My kids had a fabulous time and we will definitely return any time we have a chance. If you are looking for the ideal beach retreat, this Pilot House condo is it!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The pictures were very accurate and the property was very clean. We really enjoyed the close proximity to the Baytowne Village. It was very comfortable and quiet. Fun to walk around the village at night. I would recommend this property and would enjoy staying here again. It was an easy process to rent. This is an excellent property at a great price.

Just OK

  • 4 of 5
We have traveled and stayed at Baytowne for years and really enjoy this resort. However, this unit was not quite as nice as some of the others. There wasn't alot of special touches for comfort. The Master bath tub needs to be fixed and according to the guest book I am not the only one who agrees. No good view off the balcony just trees and traffic. Would also be nice if the owner offered beach chairs and umbrella in the units closet. It is not terrible but just stayed in better.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us; I really appreciate it considering the amount of choices that are available. I appreciate the review that you provided and I'm sorry to hear that your stay was just "Ok". As the owner, I have always tried to provide my guests with the best accommodations possible at a reasonable and fair rate. I appreciate your suggestion about providing beach chairs and an umbrella and have asked that these items be purchased and provided for my guests going forward. In regards to the issue with the tub, since I live out of town and rarely get to use the condo I was not aware of a problem and neither was the Management Company that handles my rentals. My unit has been rented solid since May and you're the first person that has reported any type of problem or issue, so Thank You for letting me know. Since the time the review was received, I have asked that a Plumber be dispatched to my unit and whatever problem exists that it be fixed. As for your comment about the balcony and the view, I’m surprised that the tremendous amount of shade and seclusion that it offers was not appealing as it has been for all our other guests. As the photo and description on VRBO shows, my unit is on the first floor and has a porch with a small yard instead of a small restricted balcony and provides a great atmosphere to sit with friends and family. In fact, many of our guests have loved the fact that the shaded and fenced yard offers a secure place for their kids to play without having to worry about them wandering off or falling on hard concrete. In addition, the easy access to the Village and the ability to pull bikes right up onto the porch has been a real positive with guests over the past three years. Finally, I'm not real sure what you meant by "special touches for comfort" but would definitely welcome your suggestions on things we could do to make the guest experience better. We already offer wireless internet service, provide a small stereo for our guests to use, have two DVD players, and have a small library of books available for our guests to enjoy during their stay so I'm not sure what other items you are refering to. I have spoken with my Rental Manager and asked that she give you a call to discuss the suggestions that you have. Thanks again for staying with us!
