About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This is the fourth floor, gulf front, end unit in the building closest to the gulf. The entire unit is on the gulf, with panoramic views of the gulf from every room.

There is a full surround deck, running 70 feet along the gulf. We have just fully renovated this unit with new cabinetry throughout and granite countertops. Professionally decorated with a large dining room for family dinners.

This is truly a beautiful unit, with some of the nicest views available in Destin. You are just steps from the elevator and then a few more steps, and you are on the beach. The views are so nice that you will feel like you are on the beach, before you even leave the condo.

About Greg Alvarez

We looked around alot before we bought our unit, and we picked this one because the views were head and shoulders above anything else we had seen. You are looking at the gulf from just about every spot in the unit. We also liked that Mainsail is a gated community, with 24 hour on site security.

Greg Alvarez purchased this condo in 1999

This was our second stay in this unit and our fourth stay at Mainsail. We love this unit. The owner is very easy to work with and responds promptly. A few of the furnishings in the unit were also recently updated (including the living room couches and television), which was great. The wrap around balcony is amazing, the views just can't be beat and the beach was never overcrowded. We have three small children, so being close to the elevators and beach are a must. Two beach chairs with umbrellas are included, which makes the trip to the beach much more manageable for those with small children. In addition, the property is across from the outlet mall; but, not in the center of the Destin traffic - which was a big plus for us. We will definitely be staying in this unit again.

This was out third time staying in this unit.....we absolutely love it. Great view and plentiful outdoor seating make it worth the stay! We spent many hours watching people in the ocean from the balcony. Kitchen is well stocked, location to elevator is great, even extra beach chairs in the closet that we were able to use. The owner is very easy to work with and very prompt in his replies to any questions you may have. Can't wait to go back!

The view was wonderful! we had a great time.We usually stay at waterscape in fortwalton during this time for a week and had book another vacation so we thought we wouldn't be able to do to the beach this year.On the spur of the moment we decide we just couldn't pass up the beach and found this condo. The owner was super nice and helpful! It was perfect not to busy, close to elevator never had to wait for it ever.We may even change to this condo for next years trip!

Beauty and the beach

  • 5 of 5

After staying in one of the condos last year and loving the facility, we decided to take the kids there again this year and it did not dissappoint again. The condo was fully furnished with everything you need and the view was excellent. The beach is beautiful and wonderfully kept up. The facilty is wonderful with all the ammenities needed to have a great vacation with family. We will be back!

Miramar Beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo had a spectacular view of the ocean. The condo was clean and well kept. The veranda allowed views from front and side of the condo. Everything needed to enjoy our vacation was included. Miramar Beach is our favorite area to vacation and the condo we stayed in didn't disappoint us. It just supported our decision to stay in Miramar Beach again next year.

Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend a couple of months this winter in this unit. We just can't say enough about our experience there. The view was spectacular with windows in the eating area, kitchen, living area, and master bedroom overlooking the Gulfof Mexico and the beautiful white beach We could watch the sunrise and sunset without leaving our condo. The unit itself was furnished tastefully and comfortably. The pictures on the website can't do it justice. We had everything that we might need (including sand toys for our grandchildren when they came for a visit). The owner was great to deal with and answered any questions that we had. We could walk to the outlet mall from our unit and there were lots of restaurants nearby that we enjoyed trying. Mainsail itself is a great complex. There is an activity room where we enjoyed meeting others, an exercise room, game room, and two pools. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone. We plan on returning next year!!

Gulf front, beautiful sugar white beaches, very quiet area of the beach. Still very close to shopping, restaurants, and activities for the kids.
