About the property

Ground Level, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Perfect for Kids!

Welcome to PASCAL HARBOR! This unit is ON THE BEACH. It is literally a two minute stroll to the beach, one minute to the pool.

^There is a short Video of this unit you can watch by clicking the camera tab just above the main picture on vrbo.

________________________________________

*I try to make my rate as transparent as possible. The rate is a nightly rate. My fixed costs are 150 per rental. This means longer stays will have a lower per noctem rate, and my guests who stay longer are fairly rewarded. Total tax (state and county) is 11%. The "Service Fee" you see is added by vrbo, not I.

________________________________________

We are the Kimbles, a family with seven children, including our adopted teenage son from Venezuela, and we would love for you to stay at our condo. We rely on rental income from you to afford this unit, and we know how competitive rentals are right now. What we have to offer you, besides reasonable rates, is a condo that we love to come to when we can, and that we have stuffed full of everything you need for a wonderful family vacation.

I want your vacation to be stress free, and most importantly, as much a vacation for mom as for the kids. In pursuit of this goal, I stock this unit with basic kitchen sundries, such as salt and spices, sugar, tea and coffee, condiments and more. I also keep paper plates and plastic cups, foil, wraps, and ziplock bags in the cabinets for you. Under the sink I have soap, dishwasher pods, wipes and garbage bags. The laundry room has detergent and dryer sheets, and I keep office supplies and first aid items there, also. I have basic bathroom items under the sink, and the beach closet has a ton of beach stuff in it. I have family board games and lots of dvds in the living room, and each of the three flat screen tvs has a bluray dvd player and a free Netflix account just for you, giving you access to thousands of movies, tv shows and documentaries. The living room tv has an 'SEC Box' that upgrades the basic cable and allows you to get the SEC Network football games, plus many more channels you cannot get with the basic cable provided by the resort. Our Westwinds building has provided free wifi for years, and we have always had problems with a bad or no connection. We have remedied this by purchasing a separate internet account just for you. Your devices will find our 'kimble4701' network, and you can connect with our private password. Besides giving you a reliable high speed internet connection, you also have a secure connection, perfect for work or confidential data.

I provide the towels and linens, not a service. This means that you have the highest quality sheets I could find, Comphy brand, and the highest hotel-quality towels I could buy. I also provide you with the highest quality bathroom amenities I could find, Ecru New York. You will be welcomed with Italian candies on your pillow and a small gift on your nightstand. I really hope all of your needs are covered, and if you can think of anything else that I can supply for you, just let me know.

Moreover, this unit is the most private and beautiful true lobby level unit in the building. If your toddler pitches over the balcony rail, he will get grass stains on his face, and not much more. The pool and beach are literally seconds away, and no elevator waiting. The flowers and palm trees right outside make you feel like you are in the Garden of Eden, and the privacy of this end unit will make you dispense with the fig leaf.

There is nothing more important to us than your family and the precious time you have for your vacation. The decor is kid friendly, with happy art work and soft colors. I love to go antiquing, especially at the beach, and the condo is full of my finds; so, whether really cool or just junk, they seem to fit happily. We know you will love this unit, and we hope that you will feel it love you right back.

Oh, I almost forgot -- Here is the boring information. This is a two bedroom unit. The master has a king bed and its own bath. The guest has a queen bed and twin bed, and has a bath that the living room, with its queen sofa bed, can also access. This unit sleeps 7 in comfy beds, and I also provide two port-a-cribs because I remember when I needed two. (fun days, good memories, tired me) I also have baby equipment like high chairs, pumpkin seat slings, and strollers, and toddler equipment like bed bumpers, sleeping cot, floaties and motion sensors (to make sure you know the kids are up) that you are welcome to use. There is a separate laundry room, with a new full-size stacked unit. There is also an enormous beach closet stuffed full of beach stuff right in the entryway so that you can kick off your flip-flops and drop your noodle and your pail as you come in from the beach.

This unit is the largest square foot two bedroom unit in Westwinds, and you can really feel that extra breathing room. Also, this unit has no next wall neighbors; it is the end unit and has three outside walls, and the fourth wall is the stairwell wall. Another unusual feature is that it has four sliding glass doors and two balconies that are on opposing walls, which give you a heavenly breeze throughout the unit when the weather is perfectly cool in the off season.

We also have the most wonderful housekeepers, Sue and Suzie, who do the cleaning and who help me keep the unit spic and span. They pleasantly tolerate the closets and cabinets I have stuffed full of vacation extras for you guys, and are on site if you need anything. I want to be small and give you personal service and make your vacation very special.

If you have looked through the photos, and are still having difficulty orienting yourself in the building, unit, and the grounds, you might want to view the 22 minute video that I just took on March 8. The first fourteen minutes are in the unit, and the rest is on the grounds and beach. In the spirit of full disclosure, it is just me and hubby's camera, and it is not quite Oscar-worthy. But I know that a ground floor unit can be scary, and I am often asked, 'Can you see the beach?' and 'How close are you to the beach?' Certainly, this little video answers those questions better than photos.

I have one other unit, also at Westwinds. It is vrbo436647. If this unit is already booked, or if there is something about it that you do not like, you can always take a look at the other unit. It is completely different, in building location and in feel.

You are also welcome to borrow our six seater golf cart while you are there. We just bought the new golf cart, and it is really cute. It has seat belts for kids, and you can zip around the resort in it.

P.S. This unit is available for short term rentals (two weeks or less) only. While I have loved having my snowbirds in years past, we have made the difficult decision to keep the unit open in January and February for shorter term guests.

About Belinda Kimble

I, Belinda Masdon Kimble, grew up in Haleyville, Alabama, about a six hour drive away from Destin, Florida. My uncle had a trailer at the trailer park that bites into part of the Sandestin resort, just on Hwy 98 called Destin East. I loved coming down with my girlfriends and staying there free, and driving into Ft. Walton for the night life, because in the late seventies and early eighties, there was nothing at Sandestin except the golf course, Clements Antiques, and Camping on the Gulf. Well, a lot has changed in my life and at Sandestin. I am so happy to have this condo, which we use at times in the off season, and rent out whenever we can.

We live in Birmingham, Alabama. The kids range in age from 28 to 13. We also have dogs, cats, birds, chinchillas, tortoises, and fish.

Belinda Kimble purchased this condo in 2011

Why Belinda Kimble chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

My first thought with regard to buying a lobby level unit was 'no view, no privacy, no way.' And then I walked into it, and my heart melted. This unit is so special. The view has been called the Garden of Eden by guests, and the privacy is absolute. How can that be? Well, on any other given balcony, there are a half dozen balconies looking down at you. But this unit is on the end, with the interior wall adjacent to the stairwell, so there is no adjoining unit, and no nearby balconies. The garden area outside the balcony is seldom used, and it really does feel like you are in a secret garden. Cross winds blow through the balcony doors, and you can just feel your blood pressure drop several points. This unit is truly special.

What makes this condo unique

I want your vacation to be stress free, and most importantly, as much a vacation for mom as for the kids. In pursuit of this goal, I stock this unit with basic kitchen sundries, such as salt and spices, sugar and coffee. I also keep paper plates and plastic cups in the cabinets for you. The laundry area has detergent and dryer sheets, and I keep office supplies and first aid items there, also. I have basic bathroom items under the sink, and the beach closet has a ton of beach stuff in it. I have family board games and lots of dvds in the living room, and each of the three flat screen tvs has Netflix and a dvd player. I do all the linens, not a service, including sheets and towels, and I provide the very best. I really hope all of your needs are covered, and if you can think of anything else that I can supply for you, just let me know.

Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have travel a few times every year and this is the best rental experience I have ever had. Not only is it a beautiful condo but it included everything you would need even down to the smallest detail. I was simply amazed at generosity of the extra items. The location is perfect as this is a ground level unit so it is easy to get everywhere. The golf cart was a added bonus of fun. We had a perfect week. Thanks for everything Belinda.

Best condo at Westwinds

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even start? Belinda has taken my expectations for VRBO stays to another level! She has made every aspect of our trip convenient and trouble free. This condo truly feels like a home away from home. Each room has Tv/Dvd and Netflix capability. Her beach supply closet has everything you might need for babies (I have a 2yr and 3yr old) all the way to your adult needs! As an added bonus with this condo you have access to a large golf cart and bikes so you can explore the Baytown wharf community! From welcome notes to bedside mints, this condo has so many extra details that will make your stay so enjoyable. Thank you Mrs. Kimble for your thoughtfulness we couldn't have had a better experience.

Amazing!

Pascal Harbor is simply amazing! The beach and pool were right outside our room. The condo is spotless and the extra attention to the little details are thoughtful and convenient! My girls (5&7) loved it! We can't wait to come back to Pascal Harbor!

BEST PLACE WE HAVE EVER STAYED

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing vacation at this rental property. The condo is clean, spacious, fully stocked with everything you could ever need, conveniently located to the pool and beach and beautifully decorated. The use of the golf cart and bikes are a wonderful addition to amenities provided in this property. The use of the beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and floats were a life saver as we did not have room in our car to bring these things with us. We also enjoyed the movies and books available for use during our stay. Belinda is a wonderful person to rent from and she spent so much time helping me on the phone and through emails with driving directions, places to eat in Destin, tips for activities and many other questions I had before my stay. She is so responsive and she genuinely cares about those that rent from her and she wants to make sure your vacation is great. My husband and I have both decided that Belinda deserves to be in the VRBO Owner Hall of Fame for the attention to detail and care she shows toward all those that rent from her and work with her. Thank you Belinda for everything and we will only rent from you when we return to Destin.

You are missing out if you don't try renting one of Belinda's condos. Everything you could think of was there and even things we didnt think of.

Thanks for everything Belinda
