About the property

Beachfront Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Queen sleeper sofas, 3.5 Baths - Sleeps 6-10

This beautiful, pet-friendly townhouse is situated directly on the white-sand beaches of the emerald coast. It can be rented to suit your needs, as two units or one. Bali Button (A) sleeps up to six and Bali Button 2 (B) sleeps up to four during Fall and Winter. Each individual unit has its own full kitchen, bathrooms, laundry facilities, and decks overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Recent remodeling of our beach homes includes new bath vanities with granite counters and marble sinks. The kitchens have been completely redone with custom cabinets, stainless appliances and quartz counters. Bali Button has brand new decks with Azek railings and flooring. The top two deck floors are now solid allowing you to enjoy rainy days on the deck and not worry about spills from above! Sit back and relax on the spacious decks on the PVC furniture with sunbrella cushions. AND YES WE HAVE HIGHSPEED WIRELESS AVAILABLE......TAKE THE COMPUTER TO THE BEACH!!

Unit A - Bali Button - is a 2BR/2.5BA and is on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the townhouse. The main living area is on the 2nd floor and has a living room with queen sleeper sofa, dining, kitchen, half bath and a nice deck off the living room overlooking the beach. The 3rd floor has 2 king bedrooms (1 is the master suite with full bath and a deck overlooking the beach) there is also a full bath in the hall on this level. The master bedroom and living room both have huge wall-to-wall sliding glass doors which open onto large balconies overlooking the beach and are perfect for enjoying the beautiful sunsets. The view is truly breathtaking! We have decorated the unit with unique furnishings from our travels to Bali, Indonesia.

Unit B - Bali Button 2 - has also been renovated and is located on the 1st floor of our three level townhouse. There is a Queen bedroom, kitchen, full bath, living room with fold out Queen sleeper sofa, and a nice deck overlooking the beach.

Both units have a private front door in front of the parking just off of Scenic Gulf Highway (Old Highway 98). The units also connect inside with an interior double locking door.

The private beach is accessible from both units. Just step off the lower deck and you are on your own private beach.

There are several good restaurants right within walking distance from the beach. Destin also offers many world-class golf courses, plenty of fishing and boating activities, nightlife, shopping and so much more.

We only allow the units to be split during late Spring, Fall and Winter. Check out Vrbo # 1133518 for the 6A 2 bedroom Part or VRBO # 1135719 for the 6B- 1 bedroom part. We only rent the full townhome during most of Spring and all of the Summer. We own 2 nearly identical beachfront townhomes side by side in the same complex. You can rent either unit 6 or unit 7 (also on VRBO #1009154). During Spring, Summer and the prime weeks of Fall we only rent from Saturday to Saturday. Please request dates from Saturday to Saturday.

With advanced planning for group events such as: weddings, family reunions, or business meetings, with our other townhouse being right next door in the same complex , we can accommodate up to 20 people if you book unit 6 and 7.

We only rent to guests 25 and over.

About Renee Bonds Finn

We are a family of 3. My wife, Renee, grew up in the area and enjoyed the Destin beaches as a child. I was stationed here in the early 90's being a Special Ops Helicopter pilot. I met my wife during that time and had already purchased this property. I was the first owner to create a living space in the bottom level and to split the townhome into 2 units. I was deployed a lot so I rented the top 2 floors and lived in the bottom. I really enjoyed having the beach right outside my back door. We have been renting the property out since 1997 and have done many renovations and updates over the years. We travel the world with our 8 year old daughter Brielle but still haven’t found any beaches as nice as Destin.

Renee Bonds Finn purchased this townhome in 1995

Why Renee Bonds Finn chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

This property was just a perfect fit and a great location. I really wanted to be right on the beach, especially for the spectacular views and direct beach access. I didn’t want to have to walk across the street. We also think it’s perfect that we have the option of splitting the townhome into 2 units. We love the layout and the decks and being able to step onto the sand from our own deck. It truly is paradise here and the views honestly don’t get much better. We also own a nearly identical townhome with similar furnishings located right next door to this one. It is Sand Dollar #7 VRBO #1009154

What makes this townhome unique

While staying at our Balinese inspired townhomes, you will enjoy a refreshing change from the standard 'flower print' furniture that, for some reason, is still popular with many property owners here. We are located directly on the gulf with the beach just off the back deck. We also have complementary high speed wireless internet so you can relax on the decks overlooking the beach while still keeping up with work and friends. We are constantly upgrading our property and take to heart any input that our customers have to offer. Being local, we stay on top of repairs and other issues that could interfere with your vacation. We travel a lot and try to bring home ideas that we see in hotels that we visit. Lastly, we own two townhomes side by side that are virtually identical so we can easily accommodate large parties. We think that you will enjoy our homes as much as we do. Call us anytime.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Reneee

I just thought I would send you a big thank you after our wonderful stay at the Bali Buttons last week.

Not only were the accommodations first rate but the obvious personal touches truly made this an outstanding vacation destination.

Thank you again and I look forward to returning in the near future.

Car: recommended

Our area is one of the best in Florida. We are located in Miramar Beach in Walton County. It used to be called Destin before they split it into 2 counties. Our townhomes are sitting on the prettiest powder white beaches that I have ever seen. We are close to one of the best outlet malls in the South East. Enjoy amazing sunsets, incredible beach views and dolphin watching from the back decks. We are in a good location convenient to restaurants, shopping, nightlife, golf, fishing, family friendly activities and so much more. I honestly don't think you can beat this area for couples and families.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect spot for a family with teenagers! The pictures on the web site do not do it justice when it comes to beach access. You are right on the beach, literally steps from the water. We had a beach view from 4 levels of deck, including the downstairs porch where the shower and storage are located. If stairs are a problem for your party this may not be the place for you, however it worked great for us. The older teens practically had a beach house to themselves; kitchen, bath, bedroom and living space with direct beach access. The units are joined with a single doorway, with plenty of privacy but also accessible. It would also work great for 3 families who wanted to vacation together. Plenty of bathrooms to accommodate everyone and the furnishings were very nice. You have everything you need to have a relaxing vacation including beach furniture. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place or better location. Restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. You can rent jet skis, paddle boats or parasail just steps down from the private beach. We have stayed in Destin on Miramar several times and this was by far our favorite place. Definitely a place we will stay again and again. We would highly recommend Sand Dollar and ask for the Bali Button units. You will not be disappointed!

Amazing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has been a favorite of ours for years! I've been on a girls trip, family trip including young children, & a couples trip. We love this spot. The space is perfect for all of us. You can't get any closer to the beach than this. The inside of the condo is absolutely perfect. Up to date appliances, decor, A/C works great!! The deck is the perfect place to grill out at sunset and there's plenty of room. Every one is always out on the decks every evening. This part of the beach is always clean & not over crowded bc it's private beach. They always have chairs & toys for the kids under the deck & an outside shower so you can rinse off before going inside. We've walked up and down the street to go to different local restaurants & tourist attractions. This is the perfect condo to stay in. We book for the up coming summer a year in advance bc we love it so much. We've been in June, 4th of July, Labor Day, & we love all of those times. The management is amazing too. I've asked questions before & they're fast to respond.

Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My favorite part of our stay is the amazing view! The Townhouse sits right on the beach. We enjoy the deck on the first level, and the balcony on the second floor off of the master bedroom. This will be our 6th time to rent this unit. The rooms are spacious and large. It has everything we need, exceptionally clean and kitchen is well stocked with whatever we might need. It is great for entertaining. The owners and staff for the unit are friendly, nice and efficient. They react immediately to any need. We love the location as it is close to shopping, grocery and restaurants. We highly recommend this unit. Love the place!!

Multi year RENTER

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite place to come! We have been renting this condo for several years and will continue to do so. The condo is in the perfect location in Miramar, right on the beach with awesome decks and views! Easy walks to many great restaurants. The condo is always clean and beautifully furnished. The owners are extremely nice and the team that supports them are always easy to get a hold of if needed. Highly recommend.

Long time renters!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I have to say, this is the Cleanest, The Best Decorated Condo we have ever stayed at, when we come to Destin, thats the only place we stay, once we stayed at another place that was 5 times the money because one gal wanted a place with a pool , i will never do that again, the owners are the kindest people on earth, my guess that the people that left a bad review were jealous owners in sand dollar, because the Bonds place is always rented! LOVE LOVE LOVE to stay with the bonds. One stay my mother could not do the stairs, Renee gave her the bottom condo because it was avail, did not charge us a penny more, NOW THATS AS GOOD AS IT GETS!
