Destin Pointe of View - Sandestin's Hidden Gem

Welcome to Destin POV!

Destin Pointe of View is a quiet little condo complex in Sandestin, Miramar Beach. The location is at the east end of Grand Boulevard, and while we are not beachfront, there is more to do here than you can shake a stick at. Sandestin is small community of gorgeous homes, beautiful beaches, high-end shops, and delicious restaurants. Baytowne Wharf is home an eventful lineup of fun and free entertainment, including numerous festivals, weekly fireworks, weekly concerts, magic shows, movies on the lawn, exciting nightlife, and even a carousel and HUGE playground. In the winter, they even have Santa and outdoor ice skating! There is ALWAYS something going on here!

POV is located about 2 miles to the beach in multiple directions. My favorite mode of transportation is riding the bike. There is a path with an underground tunnel that takes you right to the beachfront. (3 adult bikes are provided for your use.) Additionally, you can visit the numerous public beaches on the Sandestin beachfront near Whales Tale or Pompano Joe's. My FAVORITE beaches, however, are on 30A (a famous highway number but more like a destination!), where you will find quaint little beach towns and the beautiful Topsail Hill State Park. We are only 2 miles from this location. From here, you can board a trolley that will take you right down to a private beachfront where you will have TONS of space to yourselves, as you share a mile of beach with only the campers and visitors to the park.

30A has a 17 mile dedicated bike path which runs through little beach towns like Santa Rosa Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, Seaside, and Rosemary Beach. These are some of the most beautiful beaches you will ever discover. The bike path is along the beach, so you have beautiful views all along your ride. This is flat riding and one of the most family friendly things to do besides visiting the beaches. I absolutely LOVE riding here. You can rent bikes at many places along the bike path.

POV is located at the end of Grand Boulevard where there is a park with a huge lawn for football and frisbee, a weekly farmers market, and high-end restaurants like Emeril's and Tommy Bahama. We also sit in the middle of four huge golf courses that draw golfers from all over the United States. On a rainy day, you can instead hop down the street to one of the largest outlet malls in the SouthEast. Bass Pro and Destin Commons are other areas of interest for shoppers.

This complex has only a couple short term rentals. The rest of the complex is filled with very lucky locals who work during the day. This means during your vacation, they are at work, and the very nice pool is all for you. There is rarely anyone there. We also have a gym, charcoal grills, and picnic tables onsite. Since we are not beachfront, our rates are cheaper than most Destin rentals. This is a great way to explore the area, be in a fabulous location, and save some money!

This condo has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a sofa bed. It sleeps 4 adults max (HOA mandated) but up to six people with kids in the count. Danica, the owner, owns and manages many condos in the area at Waterscape Resort. She calls POV "Corporate Headquarters." This is her personal pad when she is in town to work at Waterscape. When she isn't using it, she shares it with others. She says, "It's really the perfect place. I love staying here--it's close to everything, quiet when I want it to be, and fun when I want it to be. Come give it a try; you'll LOVE IT!"

Sea-Nic Views

Loved my stay at POV. The location is great for shopping and bike riding. Plus you're a "tunnel" away from the beach. Close to many shops/restaurants you can walk or ride a bike. You can venture to Baytown Wharf. Last but not least is Danica. As a client, she will make you feel like a friend you have known forever. She goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is the best. Can't wait to plan my next trip.

First time vacationing in Destin area

We booked our stay directly with Danica and it was such an easy process. She made sure we understood every little detail since this was our first time renting privately. Condo was great! We liked having the grocery store right there and being close to the shopping center and Baytown. We are very happy with Danica and the whole experience! We will definitely rent from her again!

POV 1106

We've traveled several places and this was by far the best experience. Danica's communication is exquisite. She responded to all questions quickly and always answered thoroughly. I loved that she posted events for the week and gave beach suggestions. The location of POV is perfect! I loved that we could easily walk to many different shops. We will definitely be booking again! Oh and special thanks to Karen for going above and beyond to help me with my husband's birthday surprise. :-)

Clean and Beautiful!

Danica is 100% right when she says that her POV condo is a gem even though it's not on the beach. My family was lucky enough to snatch up a cancellation and I'm so grateful we did. Danica included a very detailed owners guide and it was so helpful. POV is walking distance to shops and restaurants. We took the bikes she included to the Wharf, Joleens Island (loved it!), and exploring through the area. This was the highlight of my 13yo son's trip. He enjoyed biking more than he did the beach. As for the beach-- we visited the 30A public beach accesses which are right down the road and never had issues finding a place to park. Beautiful beaches! Danica is an amazing host, and we look forward to booking with her again.

Great location. Gracious host. All the options to explore

Danica's place POV was a great option for our diverse family. It had the comforts of home and the feel of a resort. Danica kept in touch the entire time and answered all our questions quickly. If you are ever considering Sandestin Resort and considering options this is a good option.

Clean and Beautiful!

We stayed 4 nights in Danica’s POV condo. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. Danica was always very quick to respond to any questions I had when booking and made the entire process so easy! We enjoyed Danica’s beach recommendation of Topsail Hill State Preserve Park. It was only about 2 miles from the condo. It was a beautiful area of beach that was not crowded and we even saw deer while there! We will most definitely be staying at one of Danica’s units on our next trip!

A perfect place!

Our trip to POV condo was just perfect. Danica texted us a few times to check on us throughout the trip. She was very responsive and helpful. The condo was decorated so pretty with relaxing blue tones. You can tell that she puts much energy into thinking of the tiny details- we had everything we needed and more. Can’t wait to come back!

We loved POV!

We spent March 13-20, 2021 at Pointe of View. This condo is beautiful, fully stocked, very quiet and in a great location. Danica is very responsive and offers great advice on things to do and see. We hope to return in the future and would definitely rent from Danica again.

Great place!!

POV was a great place to spend the month of February and was just what we needed! It is comfortable, well equipped and convenient to everything we wanted to do. We loved biking on 30A as well as in the Baytown area which has much to offer. It is within easy walking distance to many great restaurants and shops as well as a Publix grocery. It was only 10 minutes to our favorite spot on the beach. Had a great time there and the owners are super nice and helpful.

Great location with amazing host!

My friend and I stayed here while on a travel nursing assignment! The location, host, and cleanliness made it an enjoyable place to stay! Grand Boulveard is literally walking distance away! It has a Publix, fabulous restaurants, bars, and top notch shopping. The beach is a couple miles away and the outlet mall is right up the road! The beds are very comfortable - makes me want to invest in a Sleep Number mattress - sleep ever! All kitchen appliances are brand new! Danica communicates very well and made sure we were taken care of the whole time! I highly recommend staying here!!!

Cute, convenient place

We stayed here to visit family in town. This place is so fun! I love that it is close to the beach, with tremendous shopping and restaurants right outside your door. We biked to the Baytowne Wharf (really we biked all over the place), walked the trails, and ate like it was our final days. The condo it clean, very well stocked, and cute as well. It is fresh and beachy. We had everything we needed including beach chairs, umbrella, and even the bikes!! The price here was wonderful. Totally worth it. Much quiter than beachfront where all the hustle and bustle is. We loved this little place.

Wonderful Vacation

Great vacation! The owner did everything to make our stay comfortable and convenient. Well stocked kitchen and beach supplies. Soft music and soft lighting created the ambient setting for a relaxing environment. The condo is adjacent to a shopping mall, providing easy walking distance to shops and food. The pool was nice and never crowded. Thank you for a great stay.
