About Ann and Tom Haller

The unit is owned and managed by Ann and Tom Haller. We have twin sons and are now empty nesters living in historic Annapolis, Maryland. We have rented our home in Annapolis to the families of the United States Naval Academy graduates for their families for Commissioning Week. We are excited to have made Sandestin our second home and look forward to sharing it with others who will come to love Sandestin as much as we do.

Beach Therapy is our second home and is outfitted like a home and not just a rental condo. We manage and maintain our VRBO listing ourselves and are available to answer any questions that you may have. You will feel as if you are a guest in our home when you stay with us.

Ann and Tom Haller purchased this condo in 2011

Why Ann and Tom Haller chose Sandestin

We first visited Sandestin 1993 when our boys were only four and fell in love with it!! Since our first visit, we have travelled throughout the Southeast and the Caribbean but never found a better resort community with as many features and activities. The beaches are spectacular, perfect for young children and sunset walks. We have traveled all over the Caribbean,Mexico and Hawaii. We have never found a beach as beautiful. Our children are grown now but there is just as much to do, we have just as much fun, as we did when our children were young. There is something for every age and interest here. With so many vacation spots, you outgrow them as your family ages, but not here. The Northwest Florida area offers a new regional airport, shopping,wildlife,recreation, and restaurants with great seafood.

We own and operate our condo, so when you inquire about our property, we will answer as soon as possible.

We keep our own calendar updated with each inquiry.

We also offer concierge Services. They will do all your grocery shopping and errands prior to your stay. They can also arrange for boat rentals and other sightseeing activities.

What makes this condo unique

We love that the activities that we like to do are so accessible. The biggest advantage to this unit is access to the beach. The beach is right outside the door. The second floor location is right on the walkway to the beach so there is no waiting for elevators. It makes it easy to go in a fix a quick lunch or cool drink without leaving the beach too long.

Tom can go play golf and I can spend the day at the beach or spa. We can play tennis, golf (regular and miniature), go to restaurants,and listen to live music without ever leaving the resort.

Most of all, we love the sunsets. You can be as active or as inactive as you like.

Very happy with our stay and I'm a bit of a hotel snob!

  • 5 of 5

So much to say! All good things! First of all, we loved the security. There are SEVERAL condos/homes/hotels in the gated area. We had to check in with security at the first gate to get our pass. Secondly we had to use a code to get into the gate of our condo, Beaside 1. Parking was great, always got a spot. The little lobby area is gorgeous. Never had to wait too long for an elevator. Our unit was on the 2nd floor. Our absolute favorite part was that we didn't have to take an elevator to get to the beach. The boardwalk out to the sand was on our floor. We thought that the unit's door having a keypad was the coolest thing ever! No keeping up with keys! Our unit was PERFECT! It was clean, organized, and nicely decorated. It was nice but not so fancy that we scared to relax on the big sectional. Homey/cozy is a better description. The view from the balcony was breathtaking. The view from the master bedroom was just as wonderful. The patio furniture was super nice! Not the cheap, hard plastic like most condos have. We took advantage of the beach chairs the owners let us use. We took two with us but our 3 guests didn't have any. We used the coffee maker, waffle maker, and a skillet for breakfast. The king size bed in the master bedroom was perfect for myself, husband, and 7 year old daughter. I sort of fell in love with the down comforter. My mom and college age sister slept in the 2nd room with twin beds and my sister's boyfriend slept on the sectional. When asked for complaints from my 4 other family members, hot water was the biggest issue we faced. The hot water tank is super small so after we learned this on the first night, we had to plan showers 45 mins to an hour apart so we could all have a warm water. My mom and sister complained that the bedroom with 2 twin beds was a little dark so they joined me in the master bedroom/bath to iron clothes, get dressed, and do hair and makeup. The master bathroom is huge! The big, walk in tiled shower was incredible! I have never stayed in a unit that had a walk in closet in the master bedroom either! We were impressed! We were so thankful there was an iron/ironing board we could use. That's really all I can think of. Oh there is also a code to get thru the gate on the boardwalk that leads to the beach. I liked that too! If we ever come back to the Destin area, I would happily rent this unit again!

Owner's Response: Jessica, Thank you for your glowing review!! Just a quick comment about the hot water tank. We replaced the hot water heater the day before you arrived. We found out after you left that the water temperature had not been properly set. That has been fixed. I would also note that due to space limitations, the condos in Beachside 1 can only accommodate small hot water heaters. (We inquired about increasing the size before we replaced the previous one. We were told we could not.) This is the one the reasons we limit our condo to 6 guests.

Perfect place, beautiful beach...a must for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 other ladies came down for a quick getaway. We looked for 2 months for finally settling with this rental. We were very pleased! The place was spacious, decor very beachy, and location amazing. The boardwalk right on our level made for easy trips back and forth to the beach. We loved that the condo also providing everything you could want. They even had 4 chairs and an umbrella. Overall we were very satisfied with the condo and plan on renting again next year. Great! Great! Great!!

Beachfront Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this lovely condo for a week during Spring Break. The owners were a pleasure to work with and very accommodating throughout the process! The condo was very clean, well furnished, well decorated, and supplied with everything we needed for our stay, including all the essential beach necessities! We really liked the location on the main floor with easy access to the pool and beach. Our favorite spot was the balcony with a great ocean view and comfy patio furniture! The condo is located in a nice safe area with easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment! We will definitely rent this condo next time we return to Sandestin.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Beach Therapy West. The grounds are beautifully kept, the location of the condo is perfect to the beach walkway. Same floor of the walkway and just a few doors down. The gated community made us feel super safe, and the beach, although it was spring break time, was not crowded at all. The condo was stocked with everything we needed. The owners were overly accomodating and super nice to work with. Will defintely be back!
