About the property

West Looking Luau Studio Floor Plan - Best Views - Free WiFi/TRAM/Beach Goodies

** Starting from March 2017 we added TRAM service to our units. You will have the convenience of using the bus system within the resort for free.

** We also own a 1-Bedroom condo in Luau (vrbo # 469110) . If we do not show availability for your dates or you need a bigger space with full kitchen, you may also check that listing.

** Please note: This is a non-smoking unit. Guest pets are not allowed in the building.

Luau is the newest building at the beachside of the Sandestin Resort. The Luau complex has one of the nicest saltwater pools on the resort, with waterfall, kid pool, hot tub and snack bar with tropical surroundings. There is a fitness center and a Meeting Room and plenty of jogging and biking trails to enjoy. Luau’s 11th floor observation deck is great for beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The Luau buildings sit on top of a rise just 2 minutes walk from the beaches of Sandestin right next to Hilton.

The Sandestin Resort area is the best resort in the area and has so much to offer. This security gated community provides added safety for the family. With its championship golf courses, tennis centers, miles of bike/jogging trails, miles of beaches, restaurants, shops, Baytowne Wharf, and children’s activities all just inside the resort. The Marina with jet ski and watercraft rentals, Jolee Island and the multiple tree houses and nature walks are just a part of what this top resort destination offers. You will have plenty to do!. Sandestin Kid’s club is very highly rated.

You will find this 6th floor Luau I condo is a luxury place to relax and enjoy while visiting the Sandestin Resort area. Our condo is family owned and operated within the resort. We will provide you with personal service you will not find with a big management company. This is one of our two condos so you will get our full attention.

With the largest Studio floor plan (~500 sq feet) you will find that the balcony has spectacular west sunset views of the Gulf and surrounding Golf course and area with a beautiful lake.

This is a luxury decorated Studio condo that sleeps up to four. We have one King Size bed, a sofa in the living room that converts to a Queen Size bed. A bathroom, kitchenette, and small living room exactly as seen in the pictures. Free High Speed WiFi is included. We have big Screen LCD TV and DVD in the unit. Amazon Prime and Netflix is provided as complimentary. Coffee Machine, blender, Microwave oven, hotel size Refrigerator, Iron/Ironing board are included. This is a non-smoking unit and guest pets are unfortunately not allowed in LUAU.

Our condo is equipped with a key-less lock system that makes check-in a breeze, no keys to get, just go directly to your room. Plus the key-less lock system provides added security for you and top that off with the fact that the Luau is in a gated area with controlled access you could not find a safer spot.

Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway or planning that beach family vacation this is a great place for you.

You will have access to our beach closet that includes beach chairs, umbrella, and beach toys for that sandcastle! All you have to do is grab the beach bag, grab the chairs, and stroll to the beach. Since we are on the beach side it is a short 2-3 minute walk from your front door!

Our goal is to provide you a family owned place to stay that makes you feel like you’re in a home away from home and you will return for years to come. I will be available to you 24/7. We have enjoyed the area for years and hope you and your family will do too!

Cleaning is provided at the end of your stay, right after you check-out. We kindly ask that you follow check-out timelines. If there is no guest arriving after you check-out or check-in, we may allow early check-in or late check-out. Just ask.

We calculate our pricing based on similar west looking units and Sandestin's own pricing. Sandestin also adds 14% compulsory resort fee with limited benefits. When that fee is added, our Studio condo pricing is around 45% less than Sandestin pricing with the following additional benefits:

- TRAM Access

- Free High Speed WiFi

- Netflix/Amazon Prime with thousands of movies and TV shows

- Umbrella/Chairs, beach toys and a Cart to carry them all to the beach.

About Tufan B.

We have purchased a 1 bedroom unit as soon as we stayed in Luau back in 2007. In 2013 I started managing it with VRBO and had great guests who truly appreciate the condo. In 2015 fall, we purchased this Studio condo which has the same lake and western views. Luau is the best value in Sandestin and we do appreciate all our guests.

I will answer inquiries the same day, usually within 1 hour.

Unit was nice and clean. Very nice bed. Dealing with VRBO was very pleasant.

  • 4 of 5

The studio was as advertised and was generally fine. My only complaint is the mini kitchen was very small, with no range or oven and counter high frig with no freezer. Not unusual for a studio, but still a negative. Otherwise, was good.

The condo is in a very nice building with easy access to the elevator from the parking lot. it is almost directly across from the elevator on the 6th floor. The staff keep the main areas very tidy. The condo was bright with a pretty view of part of the Sandestin Resort. Everything was clean and there was basic supplies left for a few days such as shampoo, small soap, dishsoap, towels, etc. There is a drip coffee pot and dorm like fridge and microwave. The bed was very comfortable and there was a comfortable couch, tv and internet, and dining table with two chairs. Internet worked well as did tv. We were very satisfied. We did not use anything from the supply area for the beach.

My husband and I had a great experience this past weekend. The room was clean and everything within the packet matched for us to get into the condo and our room. The only thing that we experienced was the shower was holding water. That was the only thing that went wrong the whole stay.
