About The Owner

Julie and I have been travelling to the Destin area since we were children. I grew up in Memphis and Julie in Texas. Loving to visit beaches like we do, we have not found a more beautiful beach location than Sandestin. Many of our friends were not familiar with the Destin area and we frequently heard them say 'Where's Destin?'. Over the past several years we have become amazed at how many friends we have turned on to the Sandestin Resort and now make it at least an annual trip for their families. We no longer hear of their trips to the beaches of South Texas, Gulf Shores, Alabama or the East Coast but about the amazing powdery, white sand in Destin.

Note: One of the owners holds an active real estate license in the State of Hawaii.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose Sandestin

We tried other beach locations around the country however kept coming back to Destin and the Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort in particular. When we found out that the Sandestin Luau condos were going up on the beachside of the Sandestin Resort we saw a golden opportunity to invest in what we believed to be the prime beach location of the Gulf coast. With the Sandestin Resort offering so much without ever leaving the resort and being a gated resort, we felt that the resort offered everything the beach vacationer could ask for. If we liked Sandestin enough to come from Texas 3 or 4 times a year, we knew it must hold a special place in our hearts. When times are stressful at home or work, we often comment on just how much we need a 'trip to Sandestin!'

What makes this condo unique

We are Owner/Managers of this beautiful condos in the Luau. Therefore, we have no partners, no management company and only ourselves to answer to. We take great pride in the appearance of our condo and ensuring that our guests are not only comfortable but happy with their decision to stay with us and confident that they are getting the most for their vacation dollar. With each guests, we try to build a friendship that will keep them coming back year after year. Our condo offer the preferred westerly views and we offer our guests complimentary use of our beach chairs and umbrellas. Our condo stay booked approximately 90% of the year with nothing but rave reviews and a ton of returning guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our third trip to Sandestin and second time staying in a Luau condo. Steve and Julie's condo was by far our best experience! The condo had great views, was super clean and met all of our needs. The Luau pool is amazing and access to the beach was very easy. Cannot wait to get back soon.

Would stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

Went for a conference being held in the Hilton. Super close to walk over to the conference. More bang for your buck than staying at the Hilton. Full kitchen and a separate bedroom verses a double bed hotel room with no kitchen. Pool was not crowded but also not peak season.

The condo is a good size for a one bedroom with a nice big bathroom. Pool & beach great.

  • 3 of 5

When we arrived my husband noticed the 2 very old tv's. Not HD and the sofa bed is past its time. Very uncomfortable. As we got unpacked there were a few lightbulbs missing and not working in various places. The king bed is ok but the pillows could be replaced. All white linens so bring extra towel for face washing becuz you will be charged for any makeup on the towels linens. No condiments, no napkins, Kleenex, paper plates, 1 roll of toilet paper, only 1soap for dishwasher and 2 for w/d. and they want you to throw everything away when you leave!!

Great Condo for a family of 4! Especially if they are really young! We would definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 6 day stay here at the Luau. The owner (Steve) is quick to respond if you need anything. We had a small hiccup with the local cable company switching to all digital and Steve was quick to remedy the situation as soon as humanly possible. He called and texted me throughout the whole process and had a technician there to fix it the next business day.

The condo is spacious and nicely decorated. It is within walking distance of the beach (really short) and was really convenient. The beach locker is a nice amenity as well. (We donated our used beach toys for the next guest, so that the sand and toys didn't end up in our garage to never be used again). We ended up booking chairs through the Hilton because we already had so much to carry for the kiddos, but it is nice to have that option of the condos umbrella and chairs. We used Uber to get to Baytown, and it was much faster than having to do a shuttle. The kitchen is adequately stocked for any cooking you may wish to do. We cooked breakfast each morning. The pool was fantastic and has a scenic waterfall and Tiki hut (for food and adult beverages). Live music on Friday and Saturdays nights from 4-7pm. The AC works fantastic and you can make the condo like a dark dungeon for naps (for kids) or sleeping in (for adults).

The description of the condo and pictures are accurate. The property was clean and well-maintained! We tried to leave it as cleaner than it was when we arrived. The owner provided great customer service. I would recommend to friends and relatives (not big groups though or if you have older children as the bathroom could grow small in that instance)

We ate at Acme (Baytown, get the Raw Oysters), Poppys (Baytown, get the lobster thermidor), Bijoux (In Sandestin Commons, Get the filet, they had the best wine selection and fantastic apps), Old Elephant Walk next to Hilton is now called The Beach House is super casual; Typical fried beach food and overpriced sugary drinks, but less than a 5 minute walk. The Marlin Grill (Baytown) is fantastic in bay town and is the best restaurant we visited along with Bijoux get a nice steak or one of the fish dishes, don't skimp and not try the amazing appetizer selections. We love Lumpy's wine bar in Baytown and is great to grab a nice wine to go, while walking around with the kids. Fireworks on Tuesdays and live music at baytown each night. Rum Runners is FUN for after hours (use a local sitter), i dont recommend the food though. Thanks

We loved the Sandestin resort and the condo we stayed in for the week. We liked the convenience of being close to the beach and the pool. It is located within a reasonable drive to other activities and restaurants to do with the family. It was clean and provided all the necessary items we needed. It was the perfect set up for us and our 5 yr old son. He loved it and had so much fun! We will be back! Thank you for sharing your beach home with us and we will be in touch for next year.

Thank you,

Carrie & Chad Rackers

Very Nice Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed for a long weekend getaway. We've stayed in this building before, so we were familiar with the layout/amenities. This unit features modern decor/appliances/etc, cozy setup, and a large balcony with a lovely view of the pool/grounds with a peek-a-boo view of the beach. Owners covered all the bases regarding condo usage rules & regs, beach and amenities access, etc. prior to our arrival and also had an info sheet available in the kitchen. We didn't cook so i can't speak of the selection of utensils etc. The bedroom was nicely appointed, bed was a bit firm but ok, large window that could be completely blacked out for sleeping in a bit later. The bathroom was in good condition with no apparent defects or issues. Our visit was during the off-peak time so parking/access to building was never an issue. The pool crowd was also very light due to off-peak time of year. Overall, we had a very nice time and would absolutely return to this unit if available.

First time to Destin

  • 5 of 5

Communicating with Steve was easy and accurate. This was our first trip to Destin and he was able to answer all my questions. The condo was spacious and clean with all the amenities needed. Easy walk to the beach. When we get the chance to return, we will definitely book this condo again!
