About Pete

My husband and I live near Houston Texas and have vacationed in Destin for the past thirty years. I am an administrative assistant and he is an accountant. Now that our kids are grown we spend most of our time spoiling our three dogs Sophie, Boudreaux and Henry.

Pete purchased this condo in 2010

Why Pete chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have been coming to Destin for the past thirty years and have always loved the area as a vaction spot. There is more than enough to do or not if you are so inclined.

What makes this condo unique

The patio is one of our favorite areas to hang out. It overlooks the beach on the left and pool area on the right.

Spectacular Balcony View and a New Look

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost is the view from the balcony. Pictures don't do it justice.

New countertops, cabinets and sliding glass doors are nice improvements.

A new king size bed and furniture in the master bedroom gives the bedroom a new look and the ease of opening the sliding glass door to allow the sound of the surf to lull you to sleep is a plus.

Add to that new balcony furniture and sofa suite along with a king size bed in the second bedroom and I thought I was in the wrong condo at first.

I always get a reasonable deal and will definitely be back again next year😎😎

Wonderful view and access to the beach. Great condo!. The ice maker and beach service are terrific!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Pete, is a generous Texas gentleman. So good to work with. May and all the other Mainsail staff are kind and do their best to ensure you have a good visit. This is our second stay here and we'll​ be back!

why we keep coming back to the same unit

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had an outstanding winter break. This year we were treated to beautiful new balcony furniture. Inside was completely fresh and clean. A brand new couch and love seat to view through new hurricane glass doors. Inside were new kitchen cupboards and granite countertops. Hope to return next year as owner is very accommodating and easy to reach. Golf and shopping are at your doorstep as well as many great eateries. But nothing can beat the sunsets on the balcony.

When we walked in I couldn't believe what a disastrous place this was. We encountered a dead roach in the hallway. The couch was so disgusting my wife and I went to the store and bought blankets just so we could sit on it. The bedroom was worse. Thread bare sheets and pillowcases. We bought sheets to be comfortable sleeping there. The kitchen was 1980s or earlier without a trace of updates. If you looked in any corner you saw filth that was there for years. The shower curtains were covered in mold and the floors were disgusting. I wouldn't let my bare feet touch them. We had friends staying elsewhere and I wouldn't have them over because I was so embarrassed by the place. Even the patio was disgusting. If not for having paid in advance I would have left and gone to a clean hotel. Proximity to the beach was the only positive. I would highly recommend finding another unit if you want to stay at Mainsail. Owner needs to visit and see what he is advertising.

Owner's Response: Dear Reader, I took my time to investigate this person's comments. I contacted my cleaning manager and read previous reviews. I would only ask that you read some of the other reviews to obtain a balanced perspective of what other guests say. 96% give a positive 4 & 5 star rating with a 2% - 3 star. That said I was notified about the leather couch and love seat which were purchased in 2012. Evidently they had been used as trampolines by some of the kids. I do not know how long they were in this condition and because it was the beginning of the busy season I instructed my cleaning manager to put covers on them until I could get over there this winter to replace them. I decided on this option so as not to interrupt my guests with people moving furniture in and out of the condo during their vacations. Evidently the covers were never purchased. I pay my cleaning staff good money to make sure the condo is in tip top shape. The roach and other complaints related to cleaning are unacceptable and I will deal with that when I come this winter. The cleaning manager is responsible for informing me of needed supplies such as sheets, pillow cases, shower curtains etc. I cut her a check for these miscellaneous items and supplies. A conversation related to this will also be had when I come over and appropriate action taken. I will check out the patio but from the reviews I do not recall any problems with it just ravings about the fantastic view. I will not bore you with details but when I acquired the condo in 2010 a sizable capital investment was made towards replacement and improvement. It made good economic sense to keep those items that were in good condition and functioning properly. New additions are made as required. It never occurred to me that my guests were all that interested in whether some of the items were modern or vintage. The majority of my guests several of which are repeats are there to enjoy the beach and balcony view and have a comfortable place to stay which I provide. The couch and love seat will most certainly be replaced for the new season and other changes and additions are in the planning. Since this is only my second response I apologize for its length but I felt the need to address the person's concerns for the sake of my readers.

Relaxed with confidence and security

  • 5 of 5

I can never say enough praise about getting to rent this condo. We've stayed here multiple times now and find that we enjoy it more with each visit. One of the best things is working with the owner. I don't have to worry about being scammed or worse because the owner is honest and truthful. I can rent with confidence and that means everything to me. The Condo is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. As an added bonus, the Condo comes with an ice machine separate from the refrigerator because you don't want to run out of ice for those long stays on the beach! Security is also very important to me and I can say that Mainsail is on top of security beginning at the entrance gate to the beach attendant. 'Only' Mainsail visitors can enter the property and set up on the beach. I would highly recommend this Condo to anyone.
