Ocean Reef Resorts offers many great affordable condo rentals in Destin and Miramar Beach. We have decided to feature three in our vacation blog, and they are the Sea Cabins, Beach Resort and Bayside Inn at Sandestin. Each one of these Destin condo complexes is distinctively different from the others, but all of them offer affordable rental rates.
If you are searching for a classic family beach vacation destination then the Sea Cabins will clearly fulfill your desires. These affordable Destin condos are located a stone’s throw from the sugary white beach right off Scenic Gulf Drive. These “cabins” are really 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 which have clusters of palm trees and other tropical plantings. Some of the rental in the front of the complex also offer beach views! They are all very comfortably furnished, unpretentious and nicely decorated in their own individual 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 provides 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 which 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.
Destin’s 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 actually more like a home that is comfortably furnished, 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/or 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 expanse of the fresh water pool 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. The open living area in each unit includes a table for dining and a fully stocked kitchen offering wonderful views of this watery oasis.
Bayside at Sandestin is a boutique hotel with affordable rates that has a tranquil setting where the blue sky reflects like a mirror in the expansive waters of Choctawhatchee Bay. It’s located on the grounds of 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 a great 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 eighteen hole Linkside Golf Course. It was recently renovated at a cost of over $2,000,000 for the completion of 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 a private bathrooms. This locale is literally steps away from the Sandestin Day Spa as well as a Fitness Facility with daily rates that includes steam rooms and saunas. It is also right next to the popular Sunset Bay Cafe which sits pool side 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. A complimentary tram service is conveniently provided to whisk you away to any of these destinations.
All three of these affordable condo rental offerings are located within the boundaries of Destin’s marvelous Miramar Beach. This area, technically apart of South Walton, is centrally located half way between Downtown Destin and Scenic 30A. The location offers the best of both worlds but is really a special place unto itself. Our main Ocean Reef Resorts office is located here, right across from the Silver Sands Premium Outlets, which happens to be the largest discount designer outlet in the entire nation. Literally millions of visitors arrive here for the world class shopping offered from the multitude of designer name stores. They have clothing and shoes for all members of the family as well as a variety of household goods at substantial discounts. Scenic Gulf Drive parallels the beach nearby that is adjacent to 300 acre resort called Seascape that has an eighteen hole championship golf course and professional tennis courts where Ocean Reef guests receive complimentary discounts. Popular beachfront restaurants include the laid back Whale’s Tail, a colorful Key West styled Pompano Joes and the long established original Captain Dave’s.
