About Sam

I went to school in Florida, and fell in love with Florida beaches. Loved Sandestin, first bought the westwinds unit in 2010 and in 2011 bought a 1Br unit in Elation which is in the Baytown wharf. I recently purchased a 2Block out r unit in Luau.

Sam purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sam chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Close to the beach - you can walk right out of your condo to go to the beach. Luau has the best salt water pool in the resort.

We stayed here on our honeymoon. It was so nice. We had a short walk to the beach, beautiful ocean views from our room.

Very nice

This is a very nice condo. It has a view of the ocean which is just a short walk away. The condo itself is nearly new and is very clean. The Sandestin resort is great as well.

This place is absolutely perfect and very affordable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while I attended a conference at the Sandestin Hilton. It is located on the grounds and only a short walk to the beach. The condo was stocked full of necessities that most other condos are not such as coffee, sugar, spices, trash bags, cleaning supplies, and great quality shampoo and soap. You can see the ocean from the balcony and the pool is wonderful. The grounds are awesome for running and the tram makes it super convenient to enjoy the Wharf for the evening without having to worry about driving. I would highly recommend this place!

Wonderful Condo Close to Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented Sam's condo two years in a row and we are currently booking our 3rd trip with him. We have rented through the Sandestin and through other VRBO owners but keep coming back to Sam's. His rates are great and it's the little extra touches that make it so enjoyable. It's so nice to have beach chairs, an umbrella, and beach toys available. The king size bed is very comfortable and the condo is plenty roomy for our small family of three and my parents. The only complaint we ever have is the sofa bed mattress is not thick enough so you can feel the springs through the mattress. My parents just alleviate the problem by placing the mattress on the floor. Not an issue! The pantry is fully stocked with disposable plates and utensils as well as condiments. The condo is a 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach and the awesome pool is just steps away. You can't go wrong with this unit. Looking forward to many more summers in Sam's condo.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

I felt it necessary to leave a review since I also depend on the feedback of others to aid in my decision making process. Let me start off by saying I read the reviews on here prior to choosing this unit. Some complained that the size of the bed was too much for the room. While I will admit the room was small, I must say the bed was comfy and it sure didn't inhibit my ability to sleep peacefully and besides you will either be at the pool or beach so that no big deal. Someone also mentioned the Internet and the toaster not working. I was able to use the wifi with no problem but the toaster needs to be changed as it only toast on one side. If you are going to provide an appliance then it needs to be one that works properly in my opinion. As for bath towels, we had enough for our family of two adults and three small kids. There is a washing machine in the event you need to wash and reuse. That was not a problem. I don't think the cleaners did a good job of cleaning the shower as I did find mold at the top of the shower curtain. Asked for the issue to be addressed and it was not! That was my only complaint. The unit was fully stocked! They had laundry soap, fabric softener, olive oil, spices, coffee, plates, cups, utensils, pots, dishwashing liquid, beach chairs and umbrella, sand toys for the kids and extra linens for the sofa bed. I would recommend this unit despite some shortcomings as it was really a decent size unit, comfy, stocked and a decent view. I enjoyed my time in Destin. Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you chenelle, glad you enjoyed the unit. My house keeper tested the toaster after last guest complaint and did not see the issue - I will have it replaced. Sorry about the shower curtain not being replaced - I asked my maintenance guy to do it and he was going to take care of it (looks like he did not - and I will get that addressed). Thank you for your feedback.
