Welcome to “Inspiration”, our true second home, which is NOT managed by a rental property company. We welcome the opportunity to invite you to experience all of the reasons why we decided to purchase in the beautiful resort of Sandestin. “Inspiration” is located in the HIGHLY DESIRABLE community of Fairmont Heritage Place, and we have done our best to provide you with world class accommodations, the finest of amenities, beautiful appointments throughout, and a 4 PASSENGER ELECTRIC GOLF CART so that you can get around this fabulous resort without the need of using your vehicle!

This elite, four bedroom residence is exquisite in every detail. Get V.I.P. treatment at this property. This is one of the nicest properties in Sandestin.

Between the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the quiet shores of Choctawhatchee Bay in northwest Florida, Storied Places is bringing to life the intimate bay front community of Inspiration. The 2,400-acre Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, with 7.5 miles of beach and bay front, is praised for its natural beauty and ranks as one of the top beach destinations in the United States. Sandestin’s four championship golf courses, including Raven, helped the resort capture the 2004 Silver Medal in Golf Magazine’s ranking of the Top 75 Golf Resorts. Ideally located in a secluded natural setting, the vacation homes of Inspiration at Sandestin are situated on one of the last remaining undeveloped bay front property on the resort, and just steps away from the pedestrian-only Village of Baytowne Wharf. The architecture is a perfect mix of traditional southern design and a contemporary aesthetic to make the most of semi-tropical, outdoor coastal living.

Community pool and hot tub for your use while you stay here. Enjoy the mango infused towels while you relax by the pool.

Workout facilities with all the latest equipment.

Bicycle use included. Take a stroll throughout the resort on the many bike trails.

Kayak use included. Paddle out in the bay and see the Emerald Coast from a different point of view.

Community pier to fish from or my family favorite is to go crabbing.

Club house has an honor bar, games and movies for everyone to use, billiards table, books and sitting areas for your enjoyment.

Club house on site has concierge level service that can arange for a sitter for the kids, make dinner reservations, or even have a chef come over to cook your favorite meal.

Spa treatment rooms available at the Club house where you can be pampered only steps away from your home.

This is really a small development (20 homes) that have luxurious amenities and inside such a great resort as Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Please call me with any questions.

About Gordon McKernan

I am married to my high school girlfriend; I have four wonderful children and a God who loves me. I am a blessed man.

Gordon McKernan purchased this house in 2011

Why Gordon McKernan chose Sandestin

I chose to buy this home because of the location and the amenities that only this property has to offer. The unbelievable view and constant breeze that rolls off the bay.

What makes this house unique

Secluded area makes it nice not to be in a big high rise where it is very crowded. We enjoy the private spa treatment rooms on property. We enjoy the screened-in porches with plenty of sitting spaces. Our home is comfortable and gives you a very relaxed feeling when you are here. It is a place to draw Inspiration.

This home was amazing. High end appointments were fabulous - Very comfortable for our family of 7.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation to Sandestin. This home made our stay absolutely fabulous. The location of the home with the view of the golf course and bay couldn't have been more perfect. The high-end appointments in the home made us feel like we were at home. With a family of 7 we never felt crammed. We all had plenty of space. The kids enjoyed it as well with the 3rd level loft and all the video games available. It was their own little play room. The two screened enclosures were a huge asset as well. It provided several gathering areas with plenty of space. The service was also exceptional by the property manager. They responded immediately to our calls.

Having the use of the 6 passenger golf cart was a HUGE benefit. We hardly used our cars. The kids loved going to the beach using the golf cart. Even though we had 7 people the golf cart worked perfect. Our 3 grandkids were little so it worked out very well. We all thoroughly enjoyed being able to use that. We even did grocery shopping in the golf cart.

The location in Sandestin was also perfect. Although the beaches were very crowded, the water was amazing. We usually go to Hilton Head - but this trip certainly convinced us that the beaches here were far better. We loved being close to all the fabulous restaurants and all the great shopping. Our trip was the 3rd week of July - so the beaches were extremely packed. But I guess that is expected at that time of year.

Our stay was fabulous and this home was a huge reason. We will definitely stay at this home again. Trudy Provo, July 2016

Gorgeous accommodations !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this place. It was beautiful inside and out. Kitchen was stocked with everything you would need! Especially loved the out door screened in porches. Loved getting up early and having my tea and devotion every morning. Enjoyed being with our sweet grandchildren every morning. Loved relaxing in the swing. We all loved the ice maker with the crushed ice. This place is very close to everything you would need. The grandkids loved riding the golf cart to the beach, the wharf and the shops. Loved being on the golf course. We loved the amenities and the events at the pool. We enjoyed everything about this place!! We have stayed at several places in Sandestin! This was by far the best place! I would highly recommend this place. Would love to come back again sometime. Thank you for sharing your place with us. Enjoyed reading about your family and my Lord.

Beautiful home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is the best home in one of the best neighborhoods in Sandestin. The location is great. Amazing views of the Bay!! Peaceful sunsets...close to Baytowne yet far enough away to avoid the noise. 6 person golf cart perfect to get around the entire resort as well as Grand Boulevard (for groceries). No need to use the car while in Sandestin.

The house is perfect. Newly remodeled. It seems they have thought of everything. Comfortable beds..awesome tvs in every room...top of the line kitchen...outdoor grill and dining...Xbox for the kids.

The Clubhouse and staff...very nice. Swim...exercise...play pool...ride bikes...It's all right there less than a 2 minute walk from the house. We also enjoyed the private neighborhood pier. Our 7 year old twins caught their first catfish.

It was hard to leave.

Great vacation!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!!

What a great home!

  • 5 of 5

This home perfect for our family. Even with 6 adults and 3 children, we weren't cramped or in each other's way. From the appliances to the finishes, everything this home is top of the line! Having jogged around the property from the golf course, I can also say with certain this home has the best view of any of the Inspiration properties! We are not generally a family that likes to make repeat trip the following year, but I think this property is the exception!

Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully luxurious home with extreme close proximity to Bay Town and the beach. The added bonus of the use of a golf cart to get to Bay Town and the beach was fantastic, especially considering that you are disallowed from renting a golf cart and bringing it onto the grounds. I would stay again and again!!
