10 Ground Floor Beachfront Destin Condos

Walk out to paradise from these 1st floor vacation rentals!

Posted on 2/14/2023

Ocean Reef Resorts offers hundreds of first-rate vacation rental properties of all kinds in Destin, Miramar Beach, Scenic 30A in South Walton, and Panama City Beach. The most popular properties are usually right on the beautiful bright beach facing the Gulf of Mexico's glowing jewel-toned waters. 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 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, which can lull you off to dreamland.

The following 10 Destin beachfront condos all have ground floor beach level locales. They are located at Beachside Towers II, Capistrano, Crescent, Edgewater, Emerald Dunes, Grandview, Sunseekers, and Windancer. Here is a quick snapshot of each!
