Very relaxing! Return visit a must!

This is our 25th year visiting the Destin area and have definitely found our favorite location! We enjoyed staying in this updated condo and loved the coastal decorations. It feels like home with all the extra amenities that are in the condo. And the beds are all very comfortable. The views of the emerald gulf from the 11th floor are incredible. Pods of dolphins swam by everyday, plus it was fun to watch the beach activity. We brought our fishing poles, went fishing off the beach, and caught a variety of fish, including pompano. We enjoyed watching the sunsets too. The Sandestin area is our favorite because of all it has to offer. You can take the free Tram, walk, bike, or drive to golfing, dining, shopping, and entertainment...right in the private gated community. Sandestin does a great job of taking care of the community and their beaches too! The owners of this condo are very friendly and take great care of their property as well. We like supporting “owner managed properties” and can’t say enough good things about our stay! Looking forward to staying again at this unit!

Such a nice condo with everything you need. The full size washer and dryer are a huge bonus! The master bed was super comfortable. The second bedroom even had enough room for a twin air mattress so all three of our kids could sleep in the same room. We’ve stayed at beachside 1 three other times, this was definitely our nicest condo yet!

Named "Emerald Beach Dreams" for the beautiful Emerald Coast and the sugar sand beach, this 11th floor condo lives up to its name! We loved the new light bright coastal decor, it truly does make you feel like you're at the beach! The new owners are very accommodating and super friendly, we would definitely return!

the condo is located in one of the best locations in the Destin area. Perfectly decorated and equipped, and secured behind both guard gate and automatic gate. The views from thee balcony are splendid, and the beach is everything we were looking for. The condo even has chairs and bikes to use. The place and location are perfect!. We didn't golf, but a nice golf course wraps around the grounds. Owner was quick with communications and directions. Would definitely stay again.

This is a clean and well-appointed unit. Several little extras provided that you don't find in most condos like dish and laundry detergent even plastic wrap and tin foil. All those extra little things you discover you need but did not bring along. Beds were extremely comfortable and there was even a blender for our pina coladas. Will definitely stay here again. Loved it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this Beachside 1 condo. It was spotlessly clean and decorated so nicely with a coastal theme. We have stayed in lower units but being on the 11th floor provided us with an excellent view of the emerald water and coast line. We could easily spot the dolphins swimming by, and each morning we tried to see who could count the most fishing boats on the horizon. The elevators ran smoothly and quickly so it wasn't a problem being on a higher floor. There were trolleys always available to transport our stuff to and from our car.

The beds were very comfortable and it was nice that the owners provided us with extras, such as detergent, paper towels, Kleenex, baggies, soap, etc. which added to the feeling that they really cared about our comfort in their condo. There was ample storage as well, so putting our things out of the way was a breeze.

We liked being able to cook a home-made meal in our condo or go out for a bite at the many restaurants on the premises. Sandestin is a great place to stay with lots of activities including four well manicured golf courses.

Walking, fishing, golfing and enjoying the beach-what could be better? As we say, "Is this heaven? No, it's Sandestin!"

We enjoyed a relaxing week in June 2018. The condo is well-equipped and comfortable. Close to great restaurants, golf and shopping. The owners were very accessible and easy to work with.

Everything about this property is wonderful! It has beautiful views of the ocean facing west for gorgeous sunsets. It is clean and comes with amenities you don't often find otherwise, from dishwashing detergent to trash bags, salt and pepper, and liquid soap. The kitchen is very well equipped. Also, there are beach chairs and umbrellas, along with floats and other fun things for the beach, even spiked cup holders for the sand. The bikes were a great bonus, especially because Sandestin is so bike friendly with bike lanes literally everywhere, including a tunnel to go under Highway 98 to the other side. The owners are more than accommodating! I had left some items in the drier and they helped me coordinate a pick up from a friend still there. That makes it a 5 star plus in my eyes!

Perfect Spot For Our First Family Vacation

My husband, nine-month-old and I stayed at this condo for a week and had the best time! This was our son's first time at the beach and Miramar is ideal. The sand is so soft, the beach is clean and not crowded. We booked a photographer to take family photos at sunset one evening; can't wait to see them!

The condo worked really well for us. We were happy to discover that there were TWO pack-and-plays in the unit so the baby had one in his room and we put the second in the living area. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook most of our meals; we went out to some good restaurants a few times. It was also helpful for us to have a highchair already in the unit. All of the furniture is comfortable and smartly styled.

My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the balcony at night watching people look for crabs and listening to music. Our infant was awoken by fireworks one night but when he's older he would probably love it. I took advantage of quiet morning time to enjoy coffee on the balcony.

The condo comes equipped with almost everything you need to enjoy the beach - chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, even a tent for a little one to get out of the sun. (Bring your own towels.) When not on the beach, we hung out at the pool. It was big enough for several families to enjoy.

Sandestin is close to a nice grocery store and shopping area. We drove into Destin proper a couple of times. If we had older kids who'd be into go-karts and mini-golf and water parks, we may spend more time there. For our purpose of a relaxing trip, Sandestin is where we spent most of our time.

Katie was very responsive throughout the planning and travel period. My family hopes to return in the future.
