Ocean Reef Resorts offers hundreds of first-rate vacation rental properties of all kinds in Destin, Miramar Beach, along Scenic 30A in South Walton and in Panama City Beach. The most popular properties are usually right on the beautiful bright beach facing the glowing jewel-toned waters of the gulf.
However, some of our guests desire a little more, like having a first-floor beach level condo. Such properties don’t require the use of an elevator, so it places you just steps away from the sugary shore. They come with ground-level patios instead of beachfront balconies and often have pool views, direct gulf views, and closer proximity to the water’s edge. This allows you to enjoy soothing surf sounds on cool nights if you open windows or glass doors, which can lull you off to dreamland.
The following 10 Destin beachfront condos all have ground floor beach level locales. They are located at Beach Manor, Beachside Towers II, Crystal Sands, Edgewater, Emerald Dunes, Grandview, Villa Burago and Windancer. Here is a quick snapshot of each!
Beach Manor 111
Beach Manor 111 is a superb two bedroom vacation residence at the Tops’l Beach and Racquet Resort. It can accommodate up to six fortunate guests with use of a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living area. Clean, comfortable furnishings with elegant styling face a row of windows in the sunny living area and Master Suite where you can view the dazzling dunes. Dual access to a wide patio allows you to hear the soothing sound of the surf while relishing the terrific tropical seascape that’s studded with Palms and Live Oaks. A full fitness facility, sauna, two lagoon-shaped beachfront pools, and hot tubs are steps away. One hot tub sits in a glass-encased acclimatized sunroom, where you can also delight in the vivid views.
We have two beachfront ground floor condos available at the Beachside Towers II luxury tower on the fabulous exclusively gated grounds of the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Perfect as a romantic rendezvous for two, both units can sleep four with use of a queen-sized sleeper sofa.
Beachside Towers II 4203
Beachside Towers II 4203 features a deck that overlooks the lush green lawn, crystalline dunes, and entrancing tropical palms as the gulf shines in the distance. This makes the perfect spot to relax over favorite drinks while refreshing your spirit in this ideal part of paradise.
Beachside Towers II 4210
Beachside Towers II 4210 sits conveniently poolside up front and center with views out towards the glorious gulf. The big pool is heated seasonally so that you may take a dip any time of the year. A wall of windows in the Master Suite provides engaging views of the pool, and you don’t even have to get out of bed to see the terrific tropical scenery.
We offer two more beach level vacation rentals at Crystal Sands. This complex is a decidedly laid back vacation enclave that is somewhat surprising since it’s near almost everything Destin has to offer. These one-bedroom condos can sleep six gulf going guests since in addition to the master bedroom there are hall bunks and a sleeper sofa. It sits high upon a soaring white dune with its own swimming pool and all units overlook the private crystalline beach below that parallels the captivating gulf. The dazzling views sometimes include pods of delightful dolphin frolicking in the distance who seem to beckon you to come down for a swim.
Crystal Sands 107A
Crystal Sands 107A takes full advantage of these stunning vistas since the glass doors provide a quadruple set of windows for views from the living area. The patio is only steps away from the stairs that lead down to the brilliantly bright crystalline beach.
Crystal Sands 110B
Crystal Sands 110B also features a wall of windows and glass doors that display this sweeping scenery. The spacious open living area is enhanced by a mirrored wall that provides dazzling double reflections of the gulf.
The Edgewater has a set of two swimming pools beside the beautiful beach that provides simultaneous views of the striking seascape. One pool features a cascading waterfall while the other pool is heated seasonally. A poolside Tiki Hut serves tropical drinks, savory snacks, and sandwiches while a simmering hot provides bubbling relaxation. This lush tropical setting offers panoramic views of the glittering gulf that spreads out like a watery jewel towards the southern horizon.
Edgewater 205 is a one-bedroom residence that can sleep four privileged guests and overlooks this greatly alluring part of paradise. Sliding glass doors provide access and frame the views from indoors, which includes a comfortably furnished open living area. A private patio invites you to enjoy these vibrant views while perhaps sipping some tropical drinks.
Emerald Dunes 105
Emerald Dunes 105 has two bedrooms and can sleep up to eight carefree beach-going guests. This low-rise condominium is perfectly named since it overlooks the “emerald” toned waters of the gulf where it sits upon some sugary white “dunes.” A covered patio off the open living area faces a strip of green lawn bordering these dunes that are embellished with sea oats, and the glistening gulf serves as a gorgeous backdrop. This dune level vacation rental residence is only a handful of steps away from steps that lead down to the beautifully beguiling beach.
Grandview is also aptly named since this exclusive mid-rise vacation gulf front condominium has a commanding “grand view” of the glowing waters that extend far into the horizon. A large oval-shaped sparkling swimming pool that’s seasonally heated looks down upon the shimmering white ribbon of sugary sand beside the jeweled water’s edge.
Grandview 101 is a luxurious three-bedroom vacation rental that can sleep up to eight pampered guests. This spacious 2,200 square foot “end unit” provides multiple views of the breathtaking gulf and a sense of privileged residence. Walls of glass doors provide precious views from both the open living area and Master Bedroom Suite. A classically columned covered veranda spans alongside a lush lawn that overlooks the gleaming gulf. You will find yourself drawn to spend a lot of time here relaxing with loved ones while experiencing the heavenly vistas and enjoying the gentle balmy breezes.
Villa Burago I
Villa Burago I encompasses 4,389 square feet of ground-floor space in a magnificent new mega-mansion style condominium that offers glamourous views of the jeweled gulf. Five spacious bedrooms with luxurious en suite baths can accommodate up to sixteen favored guests in a palatial setting. Walls of windows in the large open living area and a formal turret tower dining room look out upon a lovely lagoon-shaped swimming pool, a simmering hot tub, and the glorious gulf.
Windancer 108 is a one-bedroom vacation rental residence that’s perfect for a romantic getaway but can sleep up to six for a special family stay with use of hall bunks beds and a sleeper sofa. The perfectly positioned private patio overlooks the scintillating seascape where you may watch the wind dance across the sun-dappled gulf. Two sets of sliding glass doors showcase the stimulating scenery from the open living area. The patio is directly across from a convenient set of grills that sit upon a coastal dune flanked by two palm trees. The salty air and vivid views from the patio may inspire you to create your own fun “Surf n Turf” meal. A lagoon-shaped swimming pool that’s a short distance away also provides precious panoramic vistas of the wondrous gulf.
