Ocean Reef Resorts offers many great affordable condo rentals in Destin and Miramar Beach. We have decided to feature five here on our vacation blog. They are the Sea Cabins, Beach Resort, Bahia, SunDestin, and Bayside Inn at Sandestin. Each of these Destin condo complexes is distinctively different from the others, but all of them offer affordable rental rates.
1 Bedrooms / 2 Bathrooms / 4-6 Guests
Sea Cabins is a classic family beach vacation destination that will fulfill your beach desires. These affordable Destin condos are located a stone's throw from the sugary white sand beach right off Scenic Gulf Drive. These "cabins" are an Old Florida version of mountain cabins but are done in clapboard, painted a delightful pastel blue color, and trimmed in white. Sea Cabins offer a low-density friendly environment since these townhome-style condominiums are only two stories tall and are perfect for a laid back beach vacation. Each residence has either a patio or small balcony that looks out onto the landscaped grounds, clusters of palm trees, and other tropical plantings. Some of the rentals in front of the complex also offer beach views! They are all very comfortably furnished, unpretentious, and nicely decorated in their styles, so you may pick the one that appeals to you the most. Picnic areas with tables provide a nice place to have a fun family meal outdoors, and a lovely pool provides cool freshwater refreshment in case you tire of the salty "sea." However, this is unlikely because the large covered beachfront pavilion and walk-over provide private access to the shimmering quartz crystal sand and emerald toned waters below. The pool itself is seasonally heated for those days when the gulf temperatures have not achieved their perfect degree of warmth. These condo rentals have one private bedroom and one or two bathrooms. In many of the Sea Cabins, the main living area has sleeper sofas and/or bunk beds that can sleep extra guests, making it perfect for bringing the kids. Keeping this in mind, all of them can accommodate between four to six guests. Some of our rentals at Sea Cabins sit side by side so that you may invite other friends or family to join you to be nearby. The Sea Cabins is an affordable, small, and fairly exclusive enclave where everyone can stay in separate quarters but be close by to enjoy each other's company.
1 Bedrooms / 2 Bathrooms / 6 Guests
Beach Resort is conveniently located on the corner of Sandy Cay Drive and Scenic Gulf Drive, just a minute's stroll from the beautiful beach. From the outside, this four-story condominium building looks like an upscale hotel that gracefully arcs around a large lagoon-shaped swimming pool. However, the interiors are more like a comfortably furnished home, luxuriously appointed and professionally decorated. They all have affordable rates and offer accommodations for up to six guests since each has a private bedroom, bunk beds, and sleeper sofas. There are also two full bathrooms, so there is plenty of room for everyone's needs. Private balconies all look out upon the freshwater pool's expanse, which is lagoon-shaped and double-tiered. The shallow end is a kid's paradise since it has a giant mushroom water feature that splashes water down below. There is also a bubbling hot tub for adults beside the deep end of the pool that provides soothing relaxation. Each unit's open living area includes a table for dining and a fully stocked kitchen offering beautiful views of this watery oasis.
1 Bedrooms / 1 Bathrooms / 2 Guests
Bayside Inn at Sandestin is a boutique hotel with affordable rates with a tranquil setting where the blue sky reflects like a mirror in Choctawhatchee Bay's expansive waters. It's located on the prestigious Sandestin Resort Beach Golf & Tennis Resort overlooking the beautiful bay with views of the mainland five miles across towards the north. Despite its fancy name and location, this property offers excellent value with reasonably priced accommodations. You may enjoy the sparkling scenery from spacious patios and a large landscaped pool area that borders the waterfront. Bayside Inn also overlooks the stunning eighteen-hole Linkside Golf Course. It's recent $2,000,000 renovation remodeled exteriors and new common area interior furnishings. Rooms have views of the lush fairways or the bay. All have comfortable king-sized or twin double beds and private bathrooms. This locale is literally steps away from the Sandestin Day Spa and a fitness facility with daily rates that include steam rooms and saunas. It is also right next to the popular Sunset Bay Cafe, which sits poolside with bay views and serves delicious breakfast fare. Since Bayside is within the gated 2,400-acre community of Sandestin Resort itself, you have access to numerous golf courses, tennis courts, the charming Disney-like Village of Baytowne Wharf, Grande Boulevard, and the resort's expansive beaches along the Gulf. Complimentary tram service is conveniently provided to whisk you away to any of these destinations.
1 Bedroom / 1 Bathroom / 2 Guests
Bahia is located in the heart of the Village of Baytowne Wharf, which is an absolutely charming "nouveau" rendition of the New Orleans French Quarter. This premier destination sits right beside the beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay on the prestigious Sandestin Resort. Views toward the west are almost limitless, and panoramic views to the north extend five miles across the sparkling waters towards the mainland. The regal front of this stately building overlooks a sizable lagoon-shaped swimming pool, a bubbling hot tub, and a kid's wading pool. These studios have a bright ambiance with a sizable bed and a couch that can double as a sleeper, an accent chair, a large TV, and a small table for drinks or snacks. It also includes a kitchenette with mottled granite countertops, a small refrigerator, a wet bar, and a microwave oven.
1 Bedroom / 1.5 Bathroom / 4 Guests
SunDestin is a famous resort, centrally located in the heart of beautiful downtown Destin and just minutes from a wide variety of shops, recreation, nightlife, and some of Northwest Florida's most loved restaurants. The resort features a host of amenities such as a beachfront outdoor pool, a seasonally-heated indoor pool, outdoor and indoor hot tubs, fitness room, sauna, steam room, gas barbeque grills, massage therapy, gift shop, and much more. Rooms have a view of the glistening Gulf and have a comfortable, serene look with a king-sized bed and a couch that can double as a sleeper. The ample open kitchen has a wraparound counter bar where delicious drinks and savory snacks may be easily served.
All five of these affordable condo rental offerings are located within the boundaries of Destin and Miramar Beach.
