A while back, we reviewed a site of a bed and breakfast that the Mayor recommended because he had stayed there. Well, today, we’re doing something similar, except this recommendation comes from ME.
The site is called Sanddollar Place. It’s a very reasonably priced condo for rent in one of the most beautiful spots on earth: Destin, Florida.
Destin is located in the panhandle, a single day’s drive from my Northwest Arkansas home. Its beautiful white sand beaches, its emerald-green water (after all, it IS the Emerald Coast!), its friendly southern hospitality, and its fantastic fishing all make for an amazing vacation experience. It’s also perfect for a quick weekend getaway.
But as beautiful as Destin is, you still need a nice, reasonably priced place to stay. That’s where Sanddollar Place comes in.
There is simply not a better value for a condo rental in Destin. I know, I’ve checked into them all. To be honest with you, I have mixed feelings about recommending Sanddollar Place. I’m afraid I won’t be able to get in next year!
You have your choice of upstairs or downstairs units. They are both roomy, fully furnished units decorated in classic Florida decor. You even get a washer and dryer!
The beach is just a short walk away.
But my personal favorite aspect of Sanddollar Place is the back deck. There is a slip for rent if you’re bringing your own boat in. But even if you don’t, there is AMAZING fishing off the dock for renters. You can catch pinfish (the scrappiest little fish in the sea, weighing up to a pound, and it makes a nice fillet), triggerfish, flounder, and sea bass. Take it from me, if you toss a shrimp out there, you’ll get a near-instantaneous strike!
So enjoy a taste of the Florida panhandle with today’s FamilyFirst site. And if you can find a better condo deal in Destin, I want to know about it!
