This beach front condo on the third floor has a rare 70 foot wrap around balcony that gives you an unobstructed 270 degree view of the crystal white beach, emerald water and surrounding area – they just don’t make balconies like this anymore! Whether it is a volleyball game on the beach, pelicans fishing in the surf, dolphins playing in the emerald water, fishing boats leaving Destin harbor, or a beautiful setting sun; you can view it all from the wrap around balcony that can be access from the living room, dining room and master bedroom. It is also great for catching the sun rise with early morning coffee, watching beach activities, sunbathing, reading, hanging out or enjoying evening cocktails as you watch the sun drop into the fire-red waters.

About Charles

In 1985 we were a family of 5 that enjoyed vacationing in Destin with our family and friends. As our children grew up, the beach provided an ideal venue to connect with them and the grandkids without the distractions of Atlanta. We have enjoyed ALL of the activities available in and around Mainsail. Our family has now grown to 14, and we still enjoy sharing time with our family and friends here at the condo on the beach.

Charles purchased this condo in 1985

Why Charles chose Mainsail Resort

When we were first married, we moved to Pensacola and for the next 10 years we fell in love with the beautiful beaches in the Florida panhandle. After being away for about 15 years, we returned to Atlanta and re-discovered the beaches in the Destin area. The Mainsail complex had just one building at that time, so when they built the next three buildings we decided that we must have a beachfront condo at Mainsail. We chose unit 231 primarily because of its location right on the beach with a balcony that over looks the white sand and the beautiful blue green water. The third floor location is perfect as it is an easy walk up the stairs and high enough to see a panoramic view of the beach and surrounding area.

What makes this condo unique

We have enjoyed many adventures from Gulf shores (Alabama) to Mexico Beach (East of Panama City) while staying at Mainsail. After all of these years, we still cannot decide whether we prefer the sandy beach or the swimming pools ( the heated North pool is REALLY NICE in the winter.) We have enjoyed fishing from Destin harbor; sailing in the gulf and bay; we have even had a wedding on the beach with a reception at one of the pools. It is always fun to go out to eat, whether it is seafood or a steak at one of the excellent restaurants nearby. And having a take-out pizza or boiled shrimp with a good wine on the balcony is not a bad way to watch the sun dive into the Gulf at sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sorry this took so long but just returned from France and still getting caught up. Our visit to your condo was wonderful. We truly love the location and it was a pleasure to rent from you. We all enjoyed your condo and of course look forward to doing it again next year. We were very happy campers.

Thanks, Jill

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful time at this condo. The decor is very beachy but high quality, TV's in every room, fully stocked kitchen, etc. The ocean views from all the rooms (except kids bedroom) are great and the wrap around balcony was perfect. We had coffee out there and just soaked in the beach and ocean. The unit is also close (but not too close) to the elevators and trash chute, which was nice. It's in a less crowded area of Mirimare (about five to ten minutes away from Destin) which was great since the beaches were not too crowded. There were always beach chairs available (but you need to be at the beach by 8:45 am to get a beach front chair).

We will be back!

Extraordinary Condo

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at several of these condos at Mainsail and this by far was the greatest experience. The view is only possible by actually being inside (pictures do it no justice). You wake up to the beautiful sunrise that extends over the beach. From almost every angle inside the condo, you can see the beach - - even while cooking your favorite breakfast, lunch or dinner dish, or simply lounging around.

The wrap-around deck is awesome. You can literally walk from east to west enjoying the view and hearing the calming sound of the waves from the Gulf --the condo is right on top of the beach.

If you are looking for an ideal getaway to Destin, this is a MUST to be considered.

It is an absolutely perfect setup to enjoy the Emerald Coast. I would recommend that you go and stay at least once. I think you will agree.

We will definitely go back. We hope to plan another trip, soon.
