About the property

Mainsail On the Beach 4 Bedroom 3 Bath Spectacular Gulf Views 2 Pr Beach Service

CONDO 257 at MAINSAIL is a luxuriously appointed 4 bedroom 3 bath condo with beach views and a large kitchen and common area for relaxing and entertaining! It's located in building two on the fifth floor so we’re above the surrounding three-story homes and have great views of the beach from both the front and back of the condo. The sunsets we experience at different times of year are spectacular! We are ON THE BEACH so you need only take a few steps and an elevator ride to one of the world's most beautiful sugar-white sand beaches and gorgeous emerald waters! Because we only have 225 units in the resort, the beach is relatively uncrowded and you're not stacked in row 12, chair 32 at a high-rise resort! Plus, you'll enjoy two pairs of chairs with umbrellas set up by our beach attendant! You have an unobstructed view and short stroll to get in the water! You, your family, and your friends and guests will love it! Feel free to bring a large tailgate cabana to secure in the sand as there's plenty of room for those also!

About Robert and Dorrie Simms

Growing up near beaches, we know beaches! Mainsail is one of our absolute favorites for the surprisingly cool and soft white sand contrasted with the clear, emerald green water. Add in all the fun things to do in the area and you'll quickly adopt the Destin/Miramar Beach/Sandestin area as one of your favorites also! We are pretty meticulous when it comes to the places we live so we've updated the condo to make it comfortable no matter the time of year. With the ocean and beach right out the front door, we've also brought items in to make it nautical and "beachy" yet clean and sophisticated as well! ! We know you'll love it as much as we do!

Why Robert and Dorrie Simms chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We love the relatively uncrowded beach and so will you! Silver Sands Outlet Mall across the street from our condo with 110 stores is fantastic! It's easy to get to other stores, activities, and great restaurants also!

As far as our condo, we've updated just about everything however, if you feel we left any important stone unturned, let us know your suggestions and we'll get to work! The amenities of the resort will keep you and your family busy and having fun all day, every day.

If you want to venture out, our location just a few miles east of downtown Destin relieves you of a lot of the traffic issues Destin has during the busiest times. You can still make combat runs to the water parks, go-kart tracks, restaurants, and anything else you may want to visit there but you're most likely not going to need to sit in stop-and-go traffic. The entrance to Topsail and Baytowne are less than a mile away! When you don't have to wait in traffic to get somewhere, you're happier because you're having more fun! Heck, you really don't need to drive anyway--you can walk to the Surf Hut restaurant, the huge Winn Dixie, Chick-Fil-A, Panera Bread, Carrabbas or Starbucks as well as an excellent church (Destiny Worship Center) in less than 5 minutes! There may be newer resorts around but the amenities and location Mainsail offers, the beautiful beach, pools, tennis, hot tub, fitness room, and proximity to shopping, restaurants, golf and lots more put it light years ahead of the competition! You, your family, your friends and guests will love it!

What makes this condo unique

Gated community with 24 hour secuity guard and onsite, fully-staffed HOA business office with full maintenance staff. Covered parking. Across the street from the 110-store premier outlet complex in the area—SILVER SANDS OUTLET MALL. Much lighter traffic compared to the Destin area--getting out and about to where you want to go is much easier from our location! Great restaurants, Sandestin resort, outlets, relatively uncrowded beaches, and great resort amenities--Mainsail is the best!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for helping make this the best vacation yet! The condo made us feel right at home from the comfy couches to the unique decorations not to mention the fabulous view! Can't wait to see this place again soon!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying in this Mainsail condo!! It was a very large, well decorated condo. Right when we walked through the door, we immediately felt at home! We loved cooking in the spacious kitchen and sitting outside on the balconies, which have an amazing view of the beach. The rooms are very large and accommodating. The owners of this condo, the Simms, were fabulous to work with and made our trip perfect!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience on this getaway. The owners were very responsive with all of our questions, before we arrived and during our stay. The property was exactly as presented on VRBO; in fact, it was even larger than we expected. Very clean, well maintained. Easy access to the beach and the pool. A quiet place, too. Extremely convenient to the outlets if shopping is in your blood.
