Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)
We purchased this unit #1617 in April of 2012. We have owned and maintained rental properties in Destin since 2008, but have never managed a rental in a large self-contained resort complex. The idea of having everything within a phone call or short walk away was really appealing to us, especially being able to call in a meal order or a pizza and having it just an elevator ride away! The general store is located in the lobby and is so handy for the forgotten essentials. Although we reside in Minnesota, our trips to Destin are frequent as our children and our grandchild are FL. natives and live nearby. We find that all the great ammenities at Sundestin make it especially lucrative for the kids to come visit. . You can literally park your car in the complex lot and not use it again until it is time to pack it up and go home. This complex appeals to every kind of traveler from large vacationing families to overnight guests that might just want a steam, sauna, swim, or massage, to break up a long tedious road trip. So long story short, we fell in love with the complex and it's many ammenities first, and after viewing many sales units, walked in our unit and knew instantly it was the place we would most want to be for an ideal vacation.

Why Eva chose Destin
We selected Sundestin as our rental property because the immediate area has so much to offer. The complex is a self contained resort and meca of fun, sports, and activities. Spectacular gulf views, beautiful sunsets, many water activities, golf, shopping, beach hikes, shell hunting, and great restaurants. Our Sundestin complex is well maintained and offers a 24 hour desk and security team. The minute we walked into this unit we fell in love with it, and knew no other unit would surpass the beauty and give us that 'you are REALLY on vacation now' feeling that hit us instantly. This unit's WOW factor was unlike any unit we had viewed previously and since. The furnishings, color schemes, and arrangements give you a feeling of beach, fun, casual or elegant. It fits every kind of travel need.
What makes this Condo unique
After viewing the other units in Sundestin, we felt that no other unit offered the view and spaciousness that our 1 bedroom/ 1 1/2 bath unit did. This sixteenth floor unit is high enough to observe all the activity on the beach and also has incredible views of the city at the same time. Even the kitchen window offers beautiful views of the northeastern side of Destin, which include the Bay and the Mid-Destin causeway bridge. If you are a restless sleeper, you will find the lull of the tide hitting the shore at night the perfect cure for a peaceful sleep. The bed is comfy, the view is spectacular,and the condo is lovely!

This condo and the entire property were great. Views are just like the pictures online. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. I was most impressed with the beach equipment rental staff. We would definitely stay here again. Be warned though, there isn’t a washer/dryer in the unit. There’s a coin operated laundry down the hallway. 😑�
Room 1617 great!
We stayed here for our wedding weekend. Beautiful view for the price and very clean. The owner was super helpful and answered our call right away. Great experience.
Absolutely loved it!
An enjoyable month away from Minnesota "cold"
We really enjoyed our stay in Unit 1617 at Sun Destin in Destin, Florida. This condo was right on the sandy white beach on the Gulf of Mexico . We enjoyed our daily walk on the beach amidst the sandpipers and gulls. We were on the 16th floor and able to enjoy seeing the beach, the city and the lovely sunsets right from our living room and deck. The unit was well stocked and truly a 'home away from home". See you next year.
Wonderful time away
Everything was perfect. Clean and very nice. Will look forward to returning.
Great view comfortable bed very convenient.
It was a little dusty and several of the outlets didn't work. Other than that I would stay here again.
