We stayed at the Beachside II building in a unit we rented from the owner through an agency. It was on the tenth floor overlooking the beach and ocean. Aside from the musty, beachside feel of the place, this is a nice place to spend some time. Just go down the elevator (when they are working) and walk down to the beach. There are no restaurants or stores or anything of that nature in this building, but there is a restaurant within easy walking distance.
The beach here is friendly, with a sand shelf that goes out quite some distance. It is crowded! On the beach you can find some food, some places to rent water toys, and this is where the parasailers and banana boaters leave to have their fun.
The good thing about Sandestin is that it was created so that you do not have to leave the facility to do a variety of things. A shuttle can take you all over the complex. My favorite was the marina and a little restaurant there. It was relaxed and never crowded. There was even a parrot and sometimes live music. I liked the wharf as well, but it was generally pretty crowded. Just about any cuisine you want was there, and at night the atmosphere was very nice. There were fireworks just about every night.
Sandestin resort is located near shopping and restaurants and activities. Seaside village is about 20 minutes away and is a place that is very pleasant and picturesque.
These condos vary a lot, as many are privately owned and supervised. The one we got seemed a bit worn and could do with a good cleaning, but it was comfortable and well located. There are newer buildings that front the beach as well, so I will be looking at those the next time I am in town. I would like a fresher feel.
