About the property

4 Bedroom/4Bath Sleeps 11, Close to Pool! Perfectly Equipped, Comfy & Beachy

Payton's Place is a beautiful, incredibly comfortable beach retreat. This stylish home has all the comforts, equipment and amenities you and your family will need. Our home is located in Villa Lago, the newest single family neighborhood within the gates of the exclusive Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Sandestin boasts more than 7 miles of white sand beach and bayfront property, four championship golf courses, 15 world class tennis courts and 90 lakes that are great for fishing. Villa Lago is a bright, beautiful development surrounded by the Baytowne golf course.

Our house is two doors from the community pool in Villa Lago and is an easy short walk to the Baytowne Wharf (<.5mile), with family fun, shopping and dining, but go ahead and drive one of the two golf carts instead. The home has 2 golf carts, one 6 passenger cart and one 4 passenger cart. This home has 4 spacious comfortable bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own full bath. Our home sleeps 11 comfortably, all in their own beds. The house has 4 outdoor patios, several with seating. Our home is one of the largest four bedrooms in the neighborhood, and the extra space, in the bathrooms, bedrooms and living area, will immediately make you more comfortable.

The look and feel of this beautifully designed home will immediately put you and your guests in a vacation state of mind. The colors, finishes and furnishings are so relaxing, you may never want to go home! Stay a while....the house has everything you need for a convenient extended family beach and golf escape. Beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler and beach toys, plus a new Cornhole bag game set, footballs, a volleyball and more.

Inside the home, we have set the house to be as comfortable as possible for everyone. We have provided games, cards, puzzles and five flat screen TVs, with Apple TV on the large TV in the family room, for entertainment during that rare rain storm here in Paradise. There is extra seating at the large master dining table (10) and the large kitchen island (4).

The kitchen is also top shelf. A great place to cook and enjoy a family meal. New, premium stainless steel appliances, beautiful quartzite countertops, and all the convenience appliances you could ever need, it is also fully stocked with all the utensils you need to prepare those wonderful family meals. There is a new gas grill on the back patio, as well.

We feel this is the best location in Sandestin, which is the best community on the Emerald Coast for a beach holiday. We have made this a labor of love to create a beautiful home from which you can enjoy your fun and relaxing getaway. We think you will love it as much as we do.

About John & Michele Morris

We are a family of four from the Chicagoland area.

John & Michele Morris purchased this house in 2015

Why John & Michele Morris chose Sandestin

We have been vacationing is this area since 2004 and we have come to realize that Sandestin has the best of everything. As Midwesterners, we have longed for a place of our own where we could escape the cold and gray of the Chicago winters. The beautiful beaches, the relaxing environment, and the wonderful people who live in and visit this little part of the world have appealed to us for years. We now have a little piece of it to call our own.

What makes this house unique

We are sure you will love it here as well. The white sand beaches and the emerald green and blue waters are absolutely incomparable. We find it wonderfully relaxing here, yet the time seems to fly by. If you do decide to stay in our home, you can be sure we will do our best to be wonderful hosts and responsive, helpful owners. We want you to love this place like we do.

Perfect home in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just beautiful! There was plenty of room for eight adults. Everything you could need at your fingertips. The location of the home is great! A golf cart ride away from restaurants, entertainment, shopping and THE BEACH! The pool is two doors down from the home and felt like like your own. Wonderful owners. Definitely recommend this home!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Payton's Place. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed! The golf carts were awesome, we used them every day! The pool being so close to the house was awesome and convenient. The beach was a little farther away than we anticipated but we used the golf carts and it was a fun ride to the beach! You will not be disappointed with your stay in this home, it was awesome.

This review is very late, as I am with everything!:) We have stayed at multiple properties in San Destin. This is by far one of the best, if not the best home we have vacationed in. The furnishings are exquisite, the attention to detail spot on and literally everything you need is right there. During our stay, a toilet was damaged. They were quick to respond, professional and kept in contact with me during the claim process with the travel insurance company. I can't say enough wonderful things about this property!
