Overview

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 no extra charge to enjoy our golf cart. This condo is south-facing, lobby level, and true ground level -- no elevators to deal with, no balcony worries. Also, I am the owner and manager. Belinda

________________________________________

We are the Kimbles, a family with seven children 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. You also get personal touches that are unique to renting from an owner directly, such as being able to use our golf cart and bikes. You have come to VRBO. If you are truly ready for the BY OWNER experience, and if you trust that I will do everything under my control to provide you and your family with the absolute best beach vacation experience possible, then this is the place for you.

I want your vacation to be stress free, and most important, 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 a free Netflix account just for you, giving you access to thousands of movies, tv shows and documentaries. The second bedroom has a dvd player for the kids, even though my daughter tells me no one watches dvds anymore. The cable mini box gets the SEC channel, which allows you to get the SEC Network football games, plus many more channels. Our Westwinds building has provided free wifi for years, which is great, but my hubby needs a secure connection to check his work emails. We have remedied this by purchasing a separate internet account just for this condo. Your devices will find our 'kimble4701' network, and you can connect with our private password. Besides giving you a reliable high speed internet connection, perfect for work or confidential data, you can also watch movies and other media.

I provide the towels and linens, not a service. This means that you have the highest quality sheets and towels I could find, Comphy brand. I also provide you with the highest quality bathroom amenities I could find, an Italian bath line called Poggesi. 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 this end of the property is quite private.

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 5 in comfy beds and 2 on the pullout sofa. 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 Susie, 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. We have four Westwinds units, total. I want to remain 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 on this site. 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.

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?' The video and FB photos can answer many of your questions.

I have three other units, also at Westwinds. They are vrbo436647 (2/2)(also with a golf cart), vrbo1023833 (2/2), and vrbo1102715 (1/1). 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 units. They are completely different, in building location and in feel.

This condo has the use of our red six seater golf cart at all times. You can use the golf cart to troll over to the bay side and visit Baytowne Wharf or The Boulevard, where the Publix and the Carmike Cinema is located.

I would love to have you and your family as my 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 Sandestin

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.

You will not be disappointed with this property! The unit is very very nice, clean, organized and provides so much more than units I’ve ever stayed in. There is a closet that is FULL of things for the beach. There are 4 beach chairs, a pull cart, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, flashlights and more! The kitchen is fully stocked and also has extras like paper plates and bowls, ziplock bags, trash bags, paper towels and more! The unit is spacious, peaceful and has great views from the patio. We loved every minute of our stay!
