Safe, clean, easy access to beach and pool

  • 5 of 5

This was my first rental through VRBO and Tom and Connie were wonderful to work with. They checked in with us on the first day of arrival to make sure we had what we needed. The condo is big with so much room for a family of 4. We loved the golf cart and found it easy to take to beach, pool, grocery store/Starbucks and Baytowne Wharf. Traveling with kids, safety and cleanliness are my 2 highest priorities. This condo/Sandestin resort exceeded our expectations. Thank you!!!!

Owner's Response: Lisa, it is wonderful you and family enjoyed the villa, golf cart and Sandestin. Mutual expectations go a long way in assuring a successful rental experience. Communication is the key. We personally speak with every family beginning with the initial rental request all the way through to the return of deposit. We specialize in family vacations offering a NO SMOKING, NO PETS VILLA complete with SIX PASSENGER ELECTRIC GOLF CART accommodating up to six persons. We would love to speak with you if we offer what you need. The villa also accommodates one or two adult couples looking for a week vacation at the beach. In addition to the fantastic beach, the area offers special events such as Wine and Art Festivals, Deep Sea Fishing, Golf, Restaurants, Shopping, etc. We offer reduced weekly rates during off peak season between the end of spring break (Mid April until Memorial Week and again from Mid August through September).

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This oversized two bedroom condo feels as if you are at your very own beach house. This is a meticulously maintained home, clean as a whistle, perfect layout, tasteful furnishings, truly a gem. Private front entry to an outside patio ideal to drop all the stuff coming back from the beach or golf course and organize for the next day. Step inside to a kitchen with breakfast bar, appointed large dining table, newer powder room, generous LR seating for all, large screen TV, and another large private patio overlooking serene lake with fountains which was my favorite place to watch the sunrise with morning coffee. Plush fresh carpet stairs leads you to second floor. Two large bedrooms, both with TVs, large closets with hangers, and attached baths. Full size washer and dryer. Beach toys. I could go on and on. Owners are very accessible and encourage you to feel as if you were at your own home. We use to own in Beachside 2 and have rented the last few years (small W/D, smelly, noisy party area, old mattresses, bad HVAC, tiny golf cart, bad cleaning crew, nasty old towels). This unit is by far the best in the area. It is located towards the end of the street near a turnaround so very quiet, limited to no traffic. Best mention of all is that there is a 6 person golf cart. We flew from Chicago for a 13 day vacation and never needed a car. We are a young family with two small kids. Had a blast can't wait to come back next year!

Great Rental

  • 4 of 5

My family of five really enjoyed this property. The villa was clean when we arrived and the owners had taken steps to ensure that the TV was functioning properly prior to our arrival. The layout and location of the villa is optimal. Having the golf cart available for renter use is a huge bonus, as you can take it anywhere in Sandestin. Had we not taken day trips to the acquarium and Seaside, we never would have used our car for the entire trip.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to know your family enjoyed the villa and golf cart. The issue with the television was a High Definition converter box supplied by the cable company that stopped working and required replacement which was completed before the guest arrived. We address every issue as soon as it is reported to us.
