About the property

Luxury Gulf Front Condo - 7th Floor 2 Bedroom 2 Bath

This 2 bedroom, 7th floor unit features sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico from an oversized balcony and almost every room in this condo.

You can even see the Gulf of Mexico from the Kitchen. Two sets of sliding glass doors allow access to the Gulf front balcony.

Our home was extensively remodeled and redecorated over the 2013/2014 Winter. The Kitchen and both bathrooms were gutted, all new furniture was purchased for the Bedrooms and Living Room.

The Living Room features a huge sectional sofa with chaise lounge (queen size sleeper sofa) and sea grass area rug. Other additions include: new cocktail table, end tables, entertainment console with a 55' LED TV, WiFi BluRay Player and surround sound stereo. The adjoining Dining Area features a palm tree chandelier and new table that seats six.

The BRAND NEW Kitchen (remodeled 2014) opens to the Living Room and Dining Area. The Kitchen was completely gutted and rebuilt in the off season - new Kraft Made Cabinets, granite counters, Samsung stainless steel appliances, marble and glass back splash and LED under cabinet lighting. All new small appliances. Everything you could need to prepare a meal is in the kitchen - bar ware, professional style knives, silverware, dishes, cook ware and bake ware make this a kitchen you'll feel right at home in.

The Gulf Front Master Suite features all new furniture, mattresses and linens. A gorgeous mahogany king-size bed, long dresser with a 42' LED TV and WiFi BluRay player and an ihome radio on the night stand. The adjoining Master Bath was completely gutted - new Kraft Made vanity with granite counters, wall sconces embedded into the counter to ceiling mirror. In the adjoining bathroom - a new toilet and large walk in shower with bench and frameless shower enclosure.

An adjoining Gulf Front balcony with breath taking sunrise views, is accessible from the Master Suite.

The spacious Guest Suite was also redecorated with all new furniture - twin beds with new mattresses, linens and blankets. A long dresser with 40' Samsung LED TV, WiFi BlueRay Player and iHome radio on the nightstand. Plantation shutters, a walk-in closet and remodeled adjoining bath with new Kraft Made Vanity, granite counters and new toilet complete the suite.

The spacious gulf front balcony features custom designed wicker table and chairs with cushions, a perfect place to enjoy a sunrise breakfast or cocktails after a long day on the beach.

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. 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, new Carmike cinema (w dining) and restaurants 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.

We also own the condo next door, Mainsail 374 - VRBO - 481014.

What makes this condo unique

Mainsail Resort is a 15 acre property located DIRECTLY on the Gulf of MEXICO - there are no roads to cross. Additionally our beach is a PRIVATE beach - there is no public access and the neighborhoods around us are also gated with no public access.

This results in a beach that is rarely crowded.

The condo was very nice and comfortable. Was well supplied with many cooking utensils and pots and pans. The only disappointment was the WiFi was unsecured.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nicely furnished and remolded. Nice side view of the sunrise and Gulf off the balcony. Great location across the road from the Outlet Malls. Condo was clean and well furnished. .. Beds were comfortable and the large screen TV was a plus.

The decor is cute, but the shower is damp and musty. Also, we had reservations when the hurricane was heading to town and Florida was in a state of emergency declared by the Governor. We asked to move our reservation to sometime he had open, but the owner said no. So we went and tried to make the best of it, but the hurricane was moving more west so we had to check out early and asked for a refund of one night, but no response from the owner.
