PLEASE CALL OWNER OR SEND INQUIRY WITH CONTACT TELEPHONE NUMBER!

Gulf-Front, Edgewater Beach Condominium has a landmark architecture overlooking the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Edgewater is located in the Sandestin area, midway between Seaside and Destin. Southern Living magazine's 2009 Readers Choice Awards ranked Destin, Florida, the #1 'Best Beach', the #3 'Best Family Destination', and the #9 'Best Southern City'. The area has earned these titles for 15 consecutive years. Travelers' Choice Family Awards for 2011 shows Destin in the top 10 in the category 'Great U. S. Destinations to Discover.' In August of 2011, ABC's Good Morning America named Destin, Florida, as 1 of 10 locations considered to be 'The Most Beautiful Place in America.' The Travel Channel named Destin as the Best Family Beach in 2013. Destin was included in the top 10 list in 2013 of 'Destinations on the Rise in the U.S.,' which ranks travel hotspots that received the greatest increase in positive traveler feedback and traveler interest from customers.

Once inside the gated Edgewater property you are surrounded by lush gardens, tropical pools, and white sand beaches that stretch for miles. Guests at Edgewater enjoy two huge, freshwater swimming pools (one heated in winter, one with waterfall), toddler wading pool, children's playground, adult hot tub, Tiki Bar and Grill*, professional putting green, shuffleboard, basketball goal, adult fitness center, fitness classes, gas BBQ grills, and covered parking. Edgewater has over 420 feet of private beach where, as our guest, you will be provided with two complimentary beach chairs and an umbrella* (about a $25.00 value per day for FREE) for the duration of your stay.

* - seasonal amenities available March through October, weather permitting.

Cabinets are well-stocked with flatware, dishes, cooking pans, glassware (including extra non-breakable glassware that can be taken to pool deck area), shrimp pot, and large serving trays. We have stainless steel appliances including refrigerator with ice maker and filtered water (new in 2015), microwave oven, electric range with self-clean oven, and ultra quiet dishwasher and disposal. Laundry includes full-size washer and dryer purchased new in 2014.

As owners with over 25 years experience in the Destin area, we know the area and can help you enjoy the activities that are of interest to you. For our guests, we have equipped the condo with a collection of information on area activities, restaurant menus, area facts, and owner recommendations.

Edgewater policy prohibits rentals to anyone under the age of 25. Pets are not permitted.

My other units: Do not look for other units. This is our only unit, which we enjoy staying in throughout the year. We have decorated and accessorized it based on guest comfort, not cheap 'rental grade' options. You will find that we are continuously updating our property to keep it fresh and inviting for ourselves and our welcome guests. Many of our guests are repeat visitors, coming back year after year.

About Connie

We are a Midwest family who loves white sand beaches and beautiful clear emerald green water. We discovered the Destin/Miramar Beach area in our travels and fell in love with it. We felt we wanted to share our little piece of paradise with others. We love getting repeat guests and have made many new friends!

Connie purchased this condo in 2000

Why Connie chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We rented in the area for years before we bought our condo. Edgewater has great amenities, beautiful beaches, and many activities and restaurants nearby.

What makes this condo unique

Edgewater is beachfront. Our property in particular has great views, is newly renovated, professionally decorated, and has a lot of extras to make your stay enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time! We plan on coming back next year. We went on a dolphin cruise and were able to see a beautiful sunset. We ate at 3 of your recommendations. They were all wonderful. The weather was beautiful for us. My mom really enjoyed the balcony. She drank her coffee out there in the morning and her glass of wine before bed. This was probably my 10th time in Destin and it was by far the best! Thanks for letting us stay in paradise for a week! Debbie G., Missouri, sent these comments to owner via e-mail.

We just had a wonderful stay in unit 601. By far the best condo we have rented in Destin. Everything from the cleanliness of the condo to the communication with Connie was top notch. We will be back.

A Condo to Love!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this condo a total of three times so far and have enjoyed each of our stays. The comfortable furnishings, remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, location on the beach, easy rental process, and value make this our favorite vacation spot. Connie and Bob have thought of everything to make guests comfortable and informed about area attractions, shopping, and restaurants. We love the beach, but this time we sunbathed at one of the two pools as well. It was quiet and comfortable with restrooms, plus a food and drink hut. The view from the condo balcony is something we look forward to enjoying as much as possible. And the furniture on the balcony is comfortable and inviting for meals or just relaxing. What a great week in paradise!

Gorgeous Condo

Booking this condo was a breeze, the owner responded almost immediately! Every detail was explained and she offered local information on the best restaurants to try. Her home was gorgeous and filled with everything you need for the perfect beach vacation; location was the best place on the beach. We will definitely stay here again!

Perfect Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay... Only wish it could have been longer. The condo was perfect and comfortable and we felt at home right away. The king size bed was so comfortable! Best rest I have had in a long time! Connie and Bob were extremely attentive and helpful providing a wealth of information on area attractions and dining and making sure our vacation went as smoothly as possible. We highly recommend this place and hope to return soon!

Second stay even better than first!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2014 stay in this condo. But I think this year was even better, because we knew to expect a delightful week. We were not disappointed! The condo was clean and all the extras made us feel instantly at home. Plenty of thick towels, wooden clothes hangers in the closets, comfortable beds, upscale kitchen and bathrooms, great weather - it all came together for a wonderful experience. We especially enjoyed morning coffee on the balcony, then sunbathing and walking on the beach in the afternoon. We cooked a fresh seafood dinner at the condo and enjoyed several meals in local restaurants. Our favorite restaurant so far is Stinky's at Santa Rosa Beach.

It is true what others have written in the reviews. Connie and Bob have a five star condo! We will be back in 2016!
