ON THE BEACH, 15th Floor, 2 Bedrooms + Pullout sofa, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7)
Welcome to CADY CAY! 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 my golf cart. This condo is east facing (great sunrises), on the 15th floor, with a great emerald-water view of the beach. Also, I am the owner and the 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.
This unit has been renovated by us, with rectified travertine tile floors (no grout lines), and blue pearl granite in the kitchen and all bathrooms. The kitchen has new appliances, including a refrigerator with rapid temperature recovery so that you can stuff it full without worrying that your milk will spoil. The master bath has an enormous shower with a rain-shower shower head. And there is also a full size stacked washer and dryer. The three TVs in the unit are new blu-ray and internet capable devices, and can access our Netflix account, giving you access to thousands of movies, documentaries, and tv shows, for free. The upgraded cable allows you to get the SEC Network football games, a must in the fall, plus many more channels. Our Westwinds building has provided free wifi for years, which is great, but hubby needs a private, secure connection for his work, and we thought our guests might, too. So we purchased a separate internet account just for you. Your devices will find our 'kimble4822' network, and you can connect with our private password. Besides giving you a reliable internet connection for movies and downloads, you also have a secure connection, perfect for work or confidential data.
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 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 area has a ton of beach stuff in it.
I provide 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, Poggesi, an Italian line. 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.
The height of this condo is such that you can experience everything for which you came to the Emerald Coast. The blue-green water and snowy-sand beach lay just beyond the balcony. Moreover, this unit is on the 15th floor, which is the penthouse floor. There are only four units on the entire floor, and the adjacent unit is never rented. The balcony is private, as there is not one beside you. The building tower next door is Southwinds, and it cannot be rented, so it is always empty. The only sound interrupting the ocean waves will be the laughter of your children. The location of this unit on the east side of the building means you can enjoy your tea or coffee, wine or beer, on the balcony without getting hammered by the sun and without getting blown away by the gales. Summer is wonderful, but I hope you have a chance to go in the off season. There is nothing better than throwing the balcony doors open and falling asleep to the rising moon and lapping waves, and waking up to the golden sunrise and the distant peal of seagulls.
The decor is very family friendly, with soft, beachy colors, butter-soft leather couch, big and comfy thick mattresses, and bar stools that will never stub a little barefoot toe. The kitchen back splash is done entirely in hand cut, hand placed Venetian glass smalti tiles, inspiring your children to name every fish, which is actually possible, including Sponge Bob. The dining room chandelier has over fifty feet of hand strung glass beads, and has inspired many games of I-Spy. All of the artwork is original, and has a beachy, off-beat vibe, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. 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 its own bath. The living room, with its queen sofa bed, can access the half bath. The full bathrooms are only accessible through one of the bedrooms. This unit sleeps 7 in beds, including two on the pullout sofa, 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.
We 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. I am the owner and not a management company, and I want to give you personal service and make your vacation very special. I absolutely love all of my guests, and I am grateful every day for the opportunity to share these beach condos with kindred spirits. If you feel an energy within the walls, I would venture to say that it is the love that has gathered there for many years. The energy outside is the infinite windsong that is God, and it is palpable.
I have uploaded a video I took of the unit and pool and beach. It is 37 minutes. It is very thorough, and I want you to be sure this is the place for you. Fair warning -- it is just me and hubby's camera, and I am not expecting an Oscar nomination.
I have three other units, also at Westwinds. They are vrbo429145 (2/2)(yes golf cart), vrbo 1023833 (2/2)(no golf cart), and vrbo 1102715 (1/1)(no golf cart). 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 unit has the use of our teal 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.
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.
Belinda Kimble purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Belinda Kimble chose Miramar Beach
We looked at many properties in the area, from Ft. Walton Beach to Seaside and Blue Mountain. This was by far the most expensive condo we looked at. And we fell in love. The first thing that grabbed us is the view. The second thing was the beautiful unit itself. I love the layout, with the two bedrooms separated on opposite sides of the condo. The last thing was the pool and beach access. The pool is beautifully landscaped, and the beach is never crowded. We have not become rich through this investment, but we have enjoyed many family vacations at the beach. We have also met many wonderful guests who have shared this condo with us, and contributed a tiny bit of positive energy that stays within this property.
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.

Best Destin Experience
My mom and I had a wonderful experience staying at this beautiful condo. Belinda was such a pleasure to deal with and made everything so easy for us. The place is very clean and upkept. Wonderful place for families. Everything you need for a vacation is there and made traveling so easy. Also, you cannot beat the view!!!!! We will definitely be coming to stay at one of Belinda’s condos again.
Wonderful as always. Every detail was carefully thought of and made the stay so much more enjoyable
Would never stay anywhere else.
We have been coming to Destin for 14 years and this was the best equipped unit. Great instructions for the unit and the area. A can't miss if you are looking to stay in Destin.
Owner was more than accommodating and made everything SO easy. Belinda will give you more than enough information about the condo, common areas, and people. I highly recommend renting from Belinda. Also - condo was exactly as described and loved having the golf cart.
Great Condo! Second time we've stayed, love it even more!
We had the best week! We stayed in this condo last year and we had such a relaxing and wonderful time that we decided to come back to the same condo this year! Belinda's condo is packed with so many wonderful extras that it makes the stay so easy! Having a golf cart is a HUGE bonus, we would take it to grab some groceries at the store or late night ice cream runs to Ben and Jerrys! The building is great, all of the guests are so nice and welcoming, we LOVE this place! Definitely recommend!
Great condo and service
Great condo and great service. Having the condo stocked and having use of the golf cart made trip. We will rent with Belinda again.
This 15th Floor Unit is the most beautiful at Westwinds, which is the most beautiful building, on the most beautiful beachfront location, at the most beautiful resort in the Florida panhandle.
