About the property

1st Floor, 1BR, 1BA. Sleeps 4 max. Great water views. Discount for 7+ days.

Rising Joy condo is ranked in the top 1% by HomeAway & VRBO in bookings and guest satisfaction in the Destin/Miramar Beach/Santa Rosa Beach area. "This charming condo may be the best vacation value on Sandestin Resort."

Located among our quiet neighbors in Harbour Point (at least one 25+ year old adult must be staying), Rising Joy is comfortably decorated with new furniture, paint, accessories, bed & bath linens, new mattress, a newly appointed kitchen, and even new windows for outstanding Bayside views. Everything feels fresh, clean & cozy.

While you relax Bayside on the deck, turtles and ducks paddle up, hoping that you will toss them a few treats. Watch golfers play #14 Links. Walk to the pool just steps away.

Inside, maybe stretch out for a nap on the comfy sofa (of course it is a sleeper) or on the Master BR king size bed; find a favorite television program in the LR or BR; get everyone together and have DVD movie night on the 50" flat screen TV.

Oh, the included golf're about 5 minutes or less away from everything on the resort! Explore Beachside, Bayside, Lakeside and the Village at Baytowne Wharf as you leisurely drive past picturesque lakes (yes you may fish our lakes...catch & release, of course), and through beautiful neighborhoods.

Cruise Beachside through the convenient underground tunnel to Sandestin's sugar white beaches, Tiki Bar, beach combing, parasailing, Wave Runners, a basketball court and miniature golf, and dining.

Bayside, hit 'em straight at one of Sandestin's three golf courses. Chill out at Harbour Point's private pool or the SOA's two other pools. At the Marina, you'll find tennis, and bicycle, paddle board & kayak rentals, and the Marina Bar & Grill.

When you’re ready to experience the shopping and dining at Grand Boulevard and the Village of Baytowne Wharf, it’s all a quick golf cart trip away.

About Greg Hull

I love the Sandestin Resort. Having stayed as a guest 150+ times over 30 years, I finally purchased "Rising Joy" as my "home away from home". It is a pleasure to share the condo and resort with you.

Greg Hull purchased this condo in 2016

Why Greg Hull chose Sandestin

Great vacation value; newly painted, decorated & furnished; first floor convenience; 2017 EZGO golf cart; all new bath & BR linens; new Sealy Posturepedic Caversham Euro Top Mattress.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful views. Wildlife (feed the ducks and turtles in our lake just off the deck). So, so much to do right on the resort with easy access via the golf cart. Seriously, you may not leave the property once you arrive.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! One of the BEST vacations EVER!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Greg is the best host EVER! He responded immediately to every question that I had before and during my stay, and he even helped me find another condo to extend our stay as we didn't want to leave, and he was already booked. The condo is exactly as described - it is convenient to all the amenities (eating, shopping, Baytown Wharf, even the grocery store.) It is extremely clean and has everything that you need for a great stay (even floats for the pool, beach, etc.) Having the golf cart makes for the perfect stay in the resort as we never used the car except once to go to a restaurant recommended by Greg- which was also great. Feeding the turtles right off the deck is a great added benefit and so much fun for adults and kids- so take crackers! The view is beautiful and you get to watch golfers on the 14th hole that can be quite the show as well!! I could go on and on! This is one of those reviews you hate to write because you want it to be your little secret so it won't be booked- but it was just too good not to share with others:) Thanks Again Greg for a wonderful place to stay during a much needed vacation!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo in the Sandestin Resort. It was great location to the beach and Baytowne Wharf. The golf cart was a wonderful bonus for easy traveling around the resort! My husband and I went with our 2 boys. They were very comfortable on the sleeper sofa. The condo was clean and beautifully decorated. It was a few steps from the pool! We were even able to view the fireworks at the Wharf from the condo’s balcony. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

You have found THE place!

  • 5 of 5

We love VRBO and have rented from many great people. Greg, however, is exceptional! You will not find a better owner. He is attentive, makes great suggestions and will answer any questions you have. His place was perfect for my husband and me. We chose here because it included the Golf cart and it did not disappoint! It was a blast going to the beach, grocery, marina, etc. in the cart. We KNOW your stay will be as good as ours. Enjoy!!

Thanks again Greg for everything!!!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay! The condo was nice and quiet with everything we needed. It was my husband & I and our two kids. It worked for a few nights but if staying longer next time would choose an additional room for the kids. It was so nice having a golf cart to get around, a lot to do in the area. Nice to have a pool as well. The only negatives was no ceiling fan and minimal light in the bedroom. Also ran out of toilet paper, there was only one roll and didn’t notice until ran out.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the feedback. I always want my guests to have the very best experience possible. FYI, for you and future guests: *there is a powerful portable fan to circulate cool air in the bedroom (closet). *housekeeping should always leave one TP on the roll, and one TP under the sink...sorry they missed your backup roll.
