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

Why Greg Alvarez chose Destin

We have the best views on the gulf. Umbrella set-up each day and access to 2 swimming pools and hot tub. tennis court and weight room on the premises.

What makes this condo unique

Panoramic Views of the gulf from every room. Fourth floor unit in gated community with 24 hour security. Elevator access.

Best view in destin year after year

  • 5 of 5

Always enjoy staying here at Mainsail. Amazing balcony to watch both sunrise and sunset, floor to ceiling windows in every room, and right next to the elevator closest to the beach, where our umbrella and chairs were waiting for us each morning. Gated complex with plenty of covered parking took away any stress. Tons of places to eat and shop basically across the street, and a short easy drive for all of the destin hot spots. Thanks Greg!

Panoramic views were breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Mainsail! The location of this condo is at the end of the building overlooking the beach which provided the most beautiful views around! The deck was a 70 foot wraparound. The condominium was spacious with plenty of room as to not feel claustrophobic or on top of each other. The unit was clean and up to date. If you are searching for a nice place to stay this is it!

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!

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