If you enjoy luxury, comfort and blissful relaxation, then this is the place for you. Unwind with ease as you enjoy a lovely day on the beach in the set-up we include with your rental.

Our professionally decorated and remodeled (Platinum-rated) 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit sits in a beach front building overlooking the sugar-white sands of Miramar Beach. Mainsail is a perfect family-oriented vacation destination on a private, gate-guarded 15 acre resort complex with over 700' of private beach front. There are no roads to cross to access the beach.

Our warm Tuscan-inspired color scheme will make you feel right at home, with terrazzo tiled floors throughout (bedrooms are carpeted). A large 39" HD flat-screen Smart TV in the LR makes viewing your favorite cable TV shows/movies a pleasure. Sleep soundly or relax in the Master Bedroom in an ultra-comfortable king-size bed. Watch your favorite shows or movies on the 32" Smart TV, or take in the magnificent view of the Gulf from the balcony. The master bath is beautifully appointed with a glass vessel sink and marble-top vanity. There are twin beds with a cable TV/DVD arrangement in the guest room, with plenty of closet and dresser space. The guest bath is tastefully done with marble tile on the vanity and in the tub/shower. The fully equipped kitchen has granite counters as well as upgraded appliances. A washer and dryer are just off the kitchen area.

Mainsail is conveniently located to everything Destin has to offer. Golfing, boating, parasailing, water parks, shopping, etc. - it's all here. Grocery stores and the Silver Sands outlet mall can be walked to across the street. Many fine restaurants and entertainment are located within a short distance. The resort includes a beautiful pool/kiddie pool area and workout facility. Look as you might, you will be hard-pressed to find a more perfect vacation spot than this one. Pack your bags and come to enjoy - paradise awaits.

About Marcia Gruber

We are a family which includes our grown kids plus 5 grandchildren. We love coming to Destin because of the variety and wealth of activities it offers. We enjoy golfing/fishing, shopping and relaxing on the beach. There is always something for everyone to enjoy - for all ages in our family. We work hard in our business and when it comes to vacation time we need a place that offers relaxation and fun for everyone. We have found Destin to be one of the best places to offer that combination.

Marcia Gruber purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marcia Gruber chose Miramar Beach

After searching for nearly a year, we chose Mainsail because of its great location and relaxed atmosphere. We love that it's so family-oriented, with a stress-free, quality environment. While it enjoys a great location in close proximity to everything Destin offers, it still retains a secluded, quiet feeling. With over 700' of beachfront, it never feels crowded. As a family we've traveled to many wonderful places throughout the world and can still say that Destin's beaches are among the prettiest.

What makes this condo unique

Aesthetics are important - we decorated our condo around that motto. From the colors on the walls to the comfort of the furnishings, it all combines to make staying in our unit a pleasant experience. Add to that the convenience of being on the beach and the beautiful view, and you have a wonderful vacation spot. With an abundance of local golf courses and fabulous restaurants and shopping, Destin and its emerald waters is an irresistible destination. Although we've been coming here for the last 20 years we never seem to grow tired of it. With so much to offer, Destin only gets better with each passing year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the condo! We come to Destin each summer and hope to stay here again. We loved everything about it. Thanks for sharing your condo with our family.

4 out of 5 stars

  • 4 of 5

Although it wasn't filthy, the property wasn't as clean as we expected it to be. It was located on the beach which was beautiful with crystal clear water and a white sand beach. We did utilize the complimentary beach chairs and umbrella which was very convenient. The kitchen was fully equipped as it was described. We did enjoy the ocean view from the room.

Fun week at beach with family

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time, we love Mainsail and the condo was nice. For the price paid for stay, I was a little disappointed in condition of furniture in living room and sliding door was not clean enough to really enjoy the view from inside.

Owner's Response: We're sorry we did not meet this guest's expectations. However, because of Mainsail's proximity to the ocean, there will always be a "film" on the windows. This is due to surf spray and residual salt in the air - not a lack of cleaning. Guests will also notice it on the windows of their parked cars after a couple of days. The unit is cleaned after each guest's departure - including windows. It is deep cleaned (including furniture) seasonally. Much as we'd like to, we cannot control how guests treat it in the interim. Our guest book is filled with happy and satisfied guests who regularly award us 5*'s. We feel that better speaks to the quality of our unit.

Beautiful beach views, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this condo. It was well stocked with everything we needed, and the owners were very responsive. The views of the beach were stunning, and you can't beat the location- right on the beach! I really like that we had beach chairs and an umbrella waiting for us when we got to the beach every day. The amenities of Mainsail are nice- there are a couple of pools, a nice hot tub, kiddie pool, and grills, not to mention the outlets are across the street and the grocery store is around the corner. It's got everything. We will return! Thanks for a great stay.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We visit this condo every year and love it's inviting atmosphere. It's the perfect location for a small family vacation! Direct beach access on one side, shopping and dining on the other... and fun places to visit within minutes. It really doesn't get any better.

Thank you for letting our family enjoy your home away from home! We will most definitely visit again!

Family First in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh what an amazing time we had!! Thank you so much for allowing us to share your home. First morning out, drinking coffee on the beach watching the waves and morning set up, we got to watch 3 dolphins making their way up the coast!! Oh that was a way to start out our first family vacation. It was an absolute dream! The condo was spacious, comfortable, and perfectly designed. I'm getting a new bed when I get home btw. I have never slept so well being away from home. Thanks again, and we will be definitely calling you again!
