Two bedroom condominium sleeps up to 8 people in beds. Pak N Play available for small children. This beach front condo on the third floor has a rare 70 foot wrap around balcony that gives you an unobstructed 270 degree view of the crystal white beach, emerald water and surrounding area – they just don’t make balconies like this anymore! Whether it is a volleyball game on the beach, pelicans fishing in the surf, dolphins playing in the emerald water, fishing boats leaving Destin harbor, or a beautiful setting sun; you can view it all from the wrap around balcony that can be access from the living room, dining room and master bedroom. It is also great for catching the sun rise with early morning coffee, watching beach activities, sunbathing, reading, hanging out or enjoying evening cocktails as you watch the sun drop into the fire-red waters. You can dine al fresco on the side balcony, and watch the moon, surf and stars after dark.

In 1985 we were a family of 5 that enjoyed vacationing in Destin with our family and friends. As our children grew up, the beach provided an ideal venue to connect with them and the grandkids without the distractions of Atlanta. We have enjoyed ALL of the activities available in and around Mainsail. Our family has now grown to 14, and we still enjoy sharing time with our family and friends here at the condo on the beach.
Charles purchased this condo in 1985
When we were first married, we moved to Pensacola and for the next 10 years we fell in love with the beautiful beaches in the Florida panhandle. After being away for about 15 years, we returned to Atlanta and re-discovered the beaches in the Destin area. The Mainsail complex had just one building at that time, so when they built the next three buildings we decided that we must have a beachfront condo at Mainsail. We chose unit 231 primarily because of its location right on the beach with a balcony that over looks the white sand and the beautiful blue green water. The third floor location is perfect as it is an easy walk up the stairs and high enough to see a panoramic view of the beach and surrounding area.
We have enjoyed many adventures from Gulf shores (Alabama) to Mexico Beach (East of Panama City) while staying at Mainsail. After all of these years, we still cannot decide whether we prefer the sandy beach or the swimming pools ( the heated North pool is REALLY NICE in the winter.) We have enjoyed fishing from Destin harbor; sailing in the gulf and bay; we have even had a wedding on the beach with a reception at one of the pools. It is always fun to go out to eat, whether it is seafood or a steak at one of the excellent restaurants nearby. And having a take-out pizza or boiled shrimp with a good wine on the balcony is not a bad way to watch the sun dive into the Gulf at sunset.
Sorry this took so long but just returned from France and still getting caught up. Our visit to your condo was wonderful. We truly love the location and it was a pleasure to rent from you. We all enjoyed your condo and of course look forward to doing it again next year. We were very happy campers.
The view and balcony were amazing. The condo, however needed some attention/updates as all livable spaces do. There are several electric outlets, coming out of the walls...particularly the master bathroom. We couldn't get the tv in the bedrooms to work other than 1 channel. The dryer vent hadn't been cleaned out for "awhile". Just normal wear and tear of living by the ocean. Otherwise, all was well.
Plenty of kitchen utensils to cook with...
Loved the balcony and the large master bedroom. The tuck away murphy bed was very handy as well.
Have been vacationing in Destin for 30 years and going from one condo to the next. We were happy with them all but this is the first time we really fell in love with one and knew we would no longer be doing the condo-hop. We were supposed to stay two weeks but the day before we left we found the condo was open for two days so we called Charles and rented the next two days. He is wonderful to work with. All the amenities you can need are there, but our favorite part was the proximity to the pool and beach, covered parking, and a gated community. I could recommend restaurants but Charles prints out a complete list of great places to eat and things to do. We didn't do any of the "things" but ate at plenty of the recommended restaurants A+.
We were back for our second year to this wonderful condo and it was like coming home, it felt like it was our special place away from our home in Michigan. The weather was warmer this year we had our Pt. convertible and we had top down a lot this year. We loved seeing the sun rise sun and sun set from the deck. I turned 81 while we were there and it was a very special place to spend my birthday. The condo is well furnished and some of our family came for a few days and they all loved it. Grandchildren thought Grandma and Grandpa have been holding out on them. The condo is so quiet and all the staff is so friendly and we are looking forward to going back again next year. Bev and I would like to thank Charles and Suanne for sharing their condo with us. Pastor Ken and Bev from Michigan
We recently completed our stay here for the second year in a row. We just love it. The setting is so beautiful with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets over the beach. The condo itself is wonderfully laid out and equipped with everything you might need. It is truly a special place!
Condo was clean and fully stocked. It was right on the beach. Wrap around decks on the third floor gave a view from sunrise to sun set. Arrived from Oregon with friends for a wedding. Had a great time. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a beach front place to stay in Destin. Charles was easy to deal with. The paperwork was in order and our trip was smooth. We'll be back someday.
