Other features include: cocktail table, sofa table and end tables, inside the hand painted palm tree armoire is a new 42' led tv, Denon surround sound stereo w/ipod docking and a bluray dvd w/built in wifi for streaming netflix or other online services. A second dining table and dry bar complete the luxurious living room.

An unusual feature in our home is the separate dining room that seats six guests at the table and enjoys panoramic views of the bay, San Destin golf course and mainsail's new pool area & tennis courts. The dining room has a sliding glass door to the bay side balcony and opens to the chef's kitchen and breakfast bar has seating for three more guests and features everything you could need, including a view of the bay. Granite counters, new appliances, barware, professional style knives, all new cook ware, silverware, dishes and bake ware make this a kitchen you'll feel right at home in.

The gulf front master suite features a gorgeous mahogany king-size bed, hand-carved armoire with 42' led tv & dvd player and an ihome radio on the night stand. Adjoining the master suite is a private dressing area with custom built cherry closets. The gulf front balcony with breath taking sunrise views, is accessible from the master suite.

A spacious guest suite features west indies decor and brand new mahogany queen size spindle bed, long dresser with mirror and an ihome radio on the nightstand. Plantation shutters, a custom closet and 32' lcd tv with dvd player complete the room.

Each balcony is spacious and features custom designed wicker furniture and cushions. On the gulf side balcony there is a table and four over sized chairs... A perfect place to enjoy a sunrise breakfast or cocktails after a long day on the beach.

The bay side balcony is a great place to relax with a book or chat with friends and family. Furnished with a chair and ottoman, sofa that seats 3, chaise lounge and two end tables that make a great place to serve snacks. With a premium view of the tennis courts, you can cheer on a tennis game.

The local attractions are ever-changing and our home is located very close to many of them. Our 800 ft private beach is at the top of that list! But if you must leave the beach, the silver sands factory stores is directly across the street, featuring over 100 top designer store outlets and several restaurants - BRAND NEW CHIK-FILA coming spring 2015. And for a coffee drinker, there is a Starbucks in walking distance! Several golf courses are also near by including a par 3 course and putt putt. Big kahuna's water park is a just short drive west. Grande destin has just opened with upscale shops and dining just to the east. Destin commons an outdoor mall is just two miles to the west. Many additional activities are available in the area: fishing (beach, pier and deep), wild life viewing, horse back ridding, golf, tennis and much more.

The seventh floor view, gulf breezes and the sounds of the ocean are unforgettable from this luxury condo. Just a few steps away, walk out on to one of the whitest beaches and into the emerald green waters of the gulf, where once again, readers of southern living magazine have confirmed Destin, Florida as one of their favorite southern destinations and family getaways. In the 2013 reader's choice awards, Destin was voted the #1 best beach destination, the #3 best family destination, and the #9 best southern city. This is the 14th year in a row that Destin has received the top beach destination spot and has been in the top five for best family vacation destinations.

Beautiful Condo and Awesome Sunrise Viewing

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable condo with lots of natural light. This rental is decorated beautifully with West Indies style furniture. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for light vacation cooking to full coarse meals. Very comfortable bedding. Could use some minor updating and attention but nothing that would keep us from coming back.

Very nice condo . Great location. Property is very well kept.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. Our kids and friends stayed in this same resort.

The condo is very well appointed . The kitchen is well supplied with dishes , pots etc. There is a great stereo system in the entertainment cabinet.

The resort is well kept. Very clean grounds. Beach is wide and clean.

Only thing is the master bed slopes to the center some. Other than that, it was a great place to stay. I would recommend this property and we would stay here again.

Watching the sunrise every morning was wonderful, peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just what was advertised. This was one of the most relaxing getaways we've taken. The variety of restaurants and shopping areas were so close it was hard to decide. At night, we sat on the balconies, listening to the calming roll of the ocean. Loved everything. Hope to go back again for a longer stay. Thanks to all who made our stay so wonderful.

Atlanta, Ga

Beach Season Finale for Georgia Residents

  • 5 of 5

Bridgette, myself, Eddie and Mason (7 and 5) enjoyed Robert's home from 9/17 through 9/20.

The home is laid out perfectly to allow the enjoyment of some alone time (or at least ATTEMPT to with two small boys) as well as ample room for family engagement and fun. Bridgette and I would enjoy the side balcony for morning coffee (for about 2.5 minutes before the boys figured out where we were) as well the large beachside balcony for wine and the orchestra of the surf to close out each night.

Robert's home has more than enough bath linens and is stocked with all you need to keep it tidy from the unavoidable sand (broom and mop). The entertainment center is filled with a plethora of novels and movies -- something to please anyone wishing to luxuriate under a throw in the roomy but cozy family room.

The bedrooms are both quite comfortable, with more than enough room **and I loved the closet in the master. Yes, the bedding is firm but come on everyone --it needs to be -- I slept like a baby every night, surrounded by pillows. :-) :-)

Lastly, the kitchen: for those who enjoy cooking and entertaining like this chick right here -- there is enough flatware and tableware for twelve, easily. The kitchen cabinets are filled with a variety of cookware and bakeware but bring your own plastic wrap or covered pyrex (another 'come on people': plastic containers get scratched, hold odors... I would not expect them to be made available). The kitchen also has a coffee pot, filters, misc spices and the such.

The Mainsail Property: A short boardwalk stroll and your toes are covered in sand with chairs and an umbrella awaiting you until shortly before dusk each day. There is a kiddie pool which is surrounded by many (gas and charcoal) grills as well as picnic seating for an impromptu family lunch. There is a hot tub, pool and more than enough chaise lounges, no matter the time of day or night, with the pool closing each evening at 10:00.

I hope this helps anyone interested in this home. The boys are already asking us if we can return for no less than a week in 2018!

Thank you for making your home so incredibly welcoming, Robert.

Amanda, Bridgette and the boys.
