Posted on 4/27/2018

They say that everything is bigger in Texas and it's even been labeled "the jumbo state" due to its huge size. It is also known as a place of "valor and swagger" so there's no surprise that Texans would pick one of the biggest and best places to stay while vacationing in dazzling Destin. The desired destination, which acts as a magnet of attraction to Texans is Destin's Majestic Sun. More than 10%, one out of ten vacationers staying with Ocean Reef at the Majestic Sun are from Texas.  Chances are that if you come here from Texas, you will probably see someone you know from back home!

This iconic masterpiece of architectural design resembles a "Texas-size" magnificent manmade sandcastle since the interconnected twin luxury towers have a soaring arch that goes right through its center. It has a prominent position on Scenic Gulf Drive overlooking the wide white bright ribbon of beautiful beach. A long palm lined promenade provides easy access at multiple points. Individual rentals have breezy balconies off the main living area that provide glorious panoramic views of the green glowing gulf. Many rentals have balconies that span across to also include access from the Master Bedrooms, and all of them include a full luxury bath en-suite. Vacation rental residences all come individually decorated, comfortably furnished with beautiful appointments, have at least two full baths and feature a state of the art kitchen. One bedroom properties can sleep up to six with the use of bunks and queen sized sleeper sofas. Two bedroom units can sleep up to eight or nine. Three bedroom rentals include three full baths and can sleep up to ten.

Ocean Reef Resorts even has an opulent 5,000 square foot mega-penthouse available that crowns the top of the Majestic Sun. The five bedrooms, multiple beds and seven baths that can place up to twenty-two fortunate guests in the lap of luxury for a remarkable reunion at the beach.

Besides the awesome accommodations, Texans and others are drawn to the sensational amenities offered to guests at the Majestic Sun. They include a spectacular indoor pool with a towering two-story cathedral ceiling and an entire wall of glass that faces the glistening gulf.  An opening connects to the outside where it cascades down to another large pool. This allows guests to view the gulf while swimming indoors in a climate controlled environment during the cooler times of the year or in case of inclement weather. The adjoining outdoor swimming pool has an expansive sun deck patio that overlooks the sugary shoreline and includes bubbling Hot Tubs for soothing relaxation. There is also a full Fitness Center on site with window walls that also overlook the outdoor pool and gulf. A championship golf course and professional tennis courts are right next door at Seascape where Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive special reduced rates.

The Majestic Sun's awesome location in Destin's Miramar Beach places you near favorite gulf front restaurants and friendly bars along Scenic Gulf Drive. It is minutes away from grocery stores, wine outlets and bargain shopping at the renowned Silver Sands Premium Outlets, which has one of the nation's largest assemblies of discount designer stores.  A multitude of wonderful restaurants, lively bars, specialty shops, free concerts, seasonal festivals and family amusements are also close by at the charming Village of Baytowne Wharf as well as Grand Boulevard in Sandestin.

Many people from Texas arrive by car. It is 575 miles away from Houston which is usually a nine-hour drive. Some folk who drive over from Houston make a stopover in New Orleans to break up the trip and have a night of fun in the French Quarter. New Orleans is only about a four-hour drive. It is 700 miles from Dallas or about an eleven-hour drive.

Some Texans prefer to travel by air and like that classic Beach Boys song said, "We'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow!"  Destin is served by two major airports. The closest airport to Destin and Miramar Beach for regular commercial air travel is the Northwest Florida Regional Airport. The convenient location off Eglin Parkway provides quick access that's just minutes away from the beautiful beach. For example in light traffic, you can make it from the airport to Miramar Beach in exactly thirty minutes door to door thanks to the Mid Bay Toll Bridge. The award-winning Northwest Florida Regional Airport terminal has 110,000 square feet and serves about two million travelers every year. This airport has over 50 non-stop flights that arrive daily from all over the nation served by Allegiant, American, Delta and United Airlines. Round trip tickets from Houston to Destin can be as low as $245 round trip and even cheaper with special sales. Allegiant Airlines recently began non-stop service from Austin to Destin with inexpensive flights. Panama City International Airport is another alternative and located about 45 minutes from Miramar Beach. The Pensacola airport is a little over one hour away. Destin also has small Executive Airport just minutes away from Miramar Beach that serves privately owned planes and small jets.
