Baytowne at Sandestin

By: Trip Date: 2022-07-15
Been going to Sandestin for years, this was one of the better properties


By: Trip Date: 2022-04-22
Great rental. Fantastic location. Loved the balcony.


By: Trip Date: 2022-05-04
very nice location

Baytowne Retreat

By: Trip Date: 2021-12-08
The condo was beautifully furnished and very clean on arrival. The location couldn't be better. The unit is situated right in the heart of all the action. During this time if year, Christmas concerts were taking place, Santa came to visit, and the area was lit with Christmas lights. From the balcony, we had a front row seat to all the entertainment.

Great as usual

By: Trip Date: 2021-10-28
All was great as usual!

Our Third Rental of the 552 Observation Point Condo

By: Trip Date: 2021-08-12
This 5th floor corner condo oversees the complete area and bay. The view is always beautiful from the balcony, day or night. The condo is well maintained and updated. It is meticulously cleaned and sanitized with starter expendable items in the kitchen and baths. The appliances are stainless steel and clean. This condo would not suit the needs of two adult couples, but has been perfect for my wife and I. This condo would suit a family with 2-3 small children. Accessible to covered parking, pool, jacuzzi and more. Check-in/out is simple and straightforward.

We will stay here on our next visit to the area. 10!

One of the best vacations we have been on

By: Trip Date: 2021-07-31
Loved the location of the room. Very clean and close to everything.

Great place with vacationing with littles!

By: Trip Date: 2021-06-24
We have always tried to book a place on the beach, but with the influx of travelers this year that simply wasn’t an option. This was a fantastic alternative, we really enjoyed the vibe of staying at the village of San destin. They had events every night from Sunday through Thursday, and walking around the village after a day of swimming was a nice change of pace on the vacation. With everything so crowded, it was nice to not have to drive anywhere at night. The pool area was wonderful and we spent several days there. Would recommend driving to a different beach, the one on the trolley stop was super crowded. Very clean, and management fixed our issue with the remote control very quickly. Forgot to tell management that their dinky four cup coffee machine isn’t working well. They also had a keurig, so we went and bought k cups and that was nice. Five star stay, definitely recommend. .

Best Condo ever!

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-31
We enjoyed our stay immensely, we added an extra night! My kids wanted to purchase the condo and stay, haha!! Clean, beautiful, restaurants and entertainment at our fingertips, and gorgeous pool area!!

Treated like family by Denise the property manager

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-24
Perfect family friendly accommodations.

Clean condo

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-17
Clean condo. Nice area except the room is right above where bands play until 12:00 am some nights.

Great location, great condo

By: Trip Date: 2020-11-04
Everything was excellent

We loved this condo and location!

By: Trip Date: 2020-09-22
This condo was fantastic. Much bigger than I expected from pictures and was plenty of space for our family. The balcony is large and overlooks the activities of the area. There was a live band on Wednesday night, movie on the lawn on Thursday night and Friday/Saturday had an active piano bar just downstairs that you can listen to from the balcony. You can hear some of the noise inside but it didn't bother us at all. The pools were awesome and super convenient to get to. We will definitely be back!!


By: Trip Date: 2020-09-03
We really enjoyed our stay; this is a wonderful rental. We would definitely stay again. It was very clean; beautifully appointed rental.

July 2020

By: Trip Date: 2020-07-28
We had a perfect stay. The condo was clean and cozy with everything we needed for an amazing week. My granddaughters loved the bunk beds! Will definitely chose your home again for future trips to the beach!

Perfect Location

By: Trip Date: 2020-07-14
We’ve stayed at Baytowne Wharf twice before, Observation Point North both times, and I have to say third times the charm with this condo. The location can not be beat! Everything was wonderful. The bed was super comfortable, I slept better there than I do at home. Check in and check out process was super easy, the app they recommend to keep track of all the codes was super easy to use and convenient. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Perfect Walkable Getaway

By: Trip Date: 2020-06-25
Condo is perched right above all that you need. Lots of restaurants, many with live music, activities such as zip lining and obstacle courses, a park for the kids, marina and much more. Short tram ride to gorgeous beaches was the cherry on the cake. Condo itself was well furnished and had all the things we needed to make a couple of dinners in. Don't let the 1 bedroom fool you, this place is huge.

Great place and location

By: Trip Date: 2019-10-29
Great place. Great location. Had a couple maintenance issues that were quickly resolved. Very happy with stay

The Perfect Location

By: Trip Date: 2019-09-03
We truly loved the location of this unit. Everything was perfect. You literally were in the center of the village and had a spectacular view. Everyone from Destin Memories was amazing and informative and every person we met that worked in the village was so hospitable! The only negative about this rental was there was only one bowl with a lid. With that being the only negative, how can you go wrong? You can't! An amazing place for a vacation!

Destin family vacation

By: Trip Date: 2019-08-01
Let me say that this condos views of Baytowne wharfe is amazing!! This condo has it all!! It was clean and well appointed. It was spacious for 5 of us easily!! We would definitely stay here again!! It’s convenient to a beautiful pool, gardens and spa on the 3rd floor!! The local shopping is amazing!! Ocean and Beaches were clean but crowded. That’s just part of it!! I give this rental 5 stars!!

Cant wait to return

By: Trip Date: 2019-08-04
This was our 4th year vacationing at baytowne, and all 4 yrs we have booked thru Destin Memories. We have stayed at 3 diff properties (repeated the 1st accidentally) and this one is our favorite by far! The balcony is perfect to enjoy all the evening activities without the crowds. The location is perfect for walking around the village . The room is very spacious and comfortable. The rental agent was super attentive.. we messaged just to fyi about a maintenance update for later and they sent someone out to fix asap. The air in the whole building went out during our last day, and somehow, ours got fixed in less than an hr. (Though the rest was still out)
The pool area with this rental is very nice and well maintained. Has a more private feeling than the other pool area, and the large grilling area and kitchen with it are nice.

Amazing balcony

By: Trip Date: 2019-07-19
We loved our condo. The location was perfect, and the balcony was amazing. Huge, great view and ability to hear live music and watch fireworks at night. My kids also loved it as much as us.

Great location and perfect for a family with kids!

By: Trip Date: 2019-06-15
This condo is very spacious and could be considered a two bed/two bath. The porch is huge and offers a fabulous view of the Wharf and Marina. The Wharf offers so much to do and it's just a elevator ride or few flights of stairs down. Denise was very informative and responded very quickly. I highly recommend staying here and we will be back for sure.

Great condo!!!

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-28
Perfect size and location for my family with two teens. Very spacious with a nice balcony and view!!


By: Trip Date: 2019-04-24
This is the second time we have stayed in OP 552. It is convenient and beautiful! The best feature is the patio overlooking the area. We throughly enjoy the entire experience.

Great service, great time!

By: Trip Date: 2018-10-31
Could not have been better. I did not have to call anyone during my stay. Denise from Destin Memories was great. All said, that’s why I signed up for next year mid way through my stay. Very happy

Beautiful unit with amazing view of Baytowne Wharf!

By: Trip Date: 2018-06-19
First things first....view from patio is THE BEST! We loved sitting and watching the boats in the bay, fireworks, bands, and listening to the piano bar each night. That being said, bring ear plugs for everyone because the music from the piano bar is loud and will keep you up. Nothing earplugs or a noise machine won't drown out though.

Unit is clean and well-decorated. We didn't use the kitchen but it seemed well-stocked. Older regular coffee maker and a newer Keurig.

Bed in master bedroom was SUPER comfortable! My husband said he had the best sleep in years. Our kids did not stay with us but it was nice that we had the den with bunk beds in case they did.

There were a couple problems with the unit, but the management company was good about fixing both. The patio door handles were broken and the air went out. Again....both were fixed within 24 hours of calling. We had no other problems.

We enjoyed our week in the unit and would definitely rent it again!

Wonderful Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2018-04-07
The condo was clean and exactly what was described and pictured on the website. The location was great.

Awesome Condo

By: Trip Date: 2017-11-28
Great location. Very nice, updated and clean Condo with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. We will definitely return. Thanks again, Denise

Wonderful Condo

By: Trip Date: 2017-09-16
Beautiful condo. Really enjoyed our stay. Very nice to look out and be able to see the bay. Loved the view !!!

Great family condo

By: Trip Date: 2017-07-10
Condo was the perfect location and offering for our family of 2 girls 6 and 9. They loved the bunkbed room and my husband and I appreciated the spacious layout and no carpets!! Everything was well taken care of. We will be back again.

Right in the middle of the action

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-23
We have stayed in this condo before. The remodel is very pretty. We enjoy the location very much it's right in the heart of the night life. However that being said the noise coming from Rum Runners was unbearable this time. In the past we don't remember it being so loud. I think if there were box fans it would help drown out the noise . Some nights it went on till 2:00am. I would say that is our only complaint.

Destin Condo Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2017-05-18
We loved the condo and the Bay Side Wharf experience. The Condo very nice and well kept. Kitchen cooking utensils need to be reviewed. We were unable to cook some of the food we brought due to the lack of cooking utensils / pans. Owner did say they were going to address this. But overall this is a very nice condo and we would love to stay here again.

Love this condo!

By: Trip Date: 2017-05-22
Best location in the village.

Clean, Good Location with a very loud nightlife

By: Trip Date: 2017-04-29
The condo was amazing and just as pictured. We loved the decor and the patio furniture was great. Our only complaint would be the noise level from Baytowne Wharf. With this being our first trip to the area we didn't know exactly what Baytowne Village was and didn't realize Rum Runners Piano Bar was located directly under the unit. The music played until well after midnight which was less than ideal having a 2 year old... but all in all it was a lovely condo and we had a good time. I would recommend this to a friend without young children who like a lively nightlife. Also, the AC stopped working the night before we left.

Wonderful Stay!

By: Trip Date: 2017-04-18
We enjoyed our view and the accommodations. Denise was very friendly throughout the rental process. Check-in went smoothly. We enjoyed our getaway and will definitely stay again when we are in the area!


By: Trip Date: 2017-03-20
This unit was amazingly clean, beautiful, and perfectly situated for a family wanting to enjoy the Village. Even more amazing was Greg from Destin Memories who bent over backwards to help us navigate SanDestin and hooked us up with all sorts of things that made our stay effortless and fun. Renting from them was completely different from the last place we rented from where we were just another number. There were even fresh flowers in the unit when we arrived!

This unit says 1BR but it has a second "bedroom" that is perfect for kids. A twin over full bunkbed in a windowless room (better for sleeping!) and a curtain door. My 10 year old boy was in heaven! It was also the perfect place to gather with friends as the living area is spacious and the balcony also spacious including an unbeatable view of both the bay and the village below. If you are a family wanting to be in the mix of the Village of Baytowne, this is it. If you want a peaceful quiet retreat maybe think twice as you can hear the music from Rum Runners down below at night and from the concerts. For us that was a plus cause we could see it all from our balcony. We used our phone's sound machines when we went to bed and had no problem. That is the only thing I could caution about this unit. We found it to be a completely perfect place! And Destin Memories was so great I will call them first when we go back with a larger group in hopes we can stay in one of their units.

The condo was fabulous and a perfect location for our needs. The only thing missing was a 6qt, pot to cook and a 2qt pitcher. Bring your pot if you like to cook.

Christmas at Baytowne Wharf

By: Trip Date: 2016-12-24
Our stay at Observation Point was exceptional! We had a little snag with the door code being changed after our check in info was sent to us, but one quick call fixed that! The management was very responsive, and in just a minute, we were in the unit! The unit was spotless, and furnished beautifully. But, the high point of our experience was the view! Wow! It is truly the best spot to be when you are in Baytowne Wharf!


By: Trip Date: 2016-11-22
Perfect location and unit much better than pics show.

Best View of Baytowne

By: Trip Date: 2016-10-12
This unit provides views of the bay and all of the action in Baytowne. Not a good choice if you have little ones needing to sleep at night as the noise at bar action can be very loud. Beds weren't the best and hot water in the main shower wasn't great. Overall great experience.

Magnificent Labor Day !!!

By: Trip Date: 2016-09-02
The best part about the condo was its location! My husband and I enjoyed sitting out on the balcony sipping wine and listening to the great bands that were performing right in front of us every night.
We really appreciated being in the heart of the village.
We plan to make 552 @ Observation Point North our new Labor Day tradition!!

We are a family of 5 who like to vacation at the beach. We found 552 Observation by accident last year and booked the same unit this year. If you like bang for buck you will love this unit. It is the top floor and overlooks Baytowne Wharf. The balcony is amazing... very large and private. This is the one that you look at from down below and wish you could stay there. The unit is not dripping with expensive furnishings which is probably why it is so affordable. It is very comfortable and extremely well laid out. Actually one of things I like about the unit is that I don't really worry that my kids will break something. Don't get me wrong it is well appointed... just not over the top! Our highlight was watching fireworks from our balcony! On a side note... the people that manage the unit are amazing. They genuinely care that you have a wonderful stay!

This condo is FABULOUS. It is very spacious to be listed as a 1br. The balcony is awesome. No complaints with this place or rental agent. Everything was great.

Everything was perfect!

By: Trip Date: 2015-05-02
We have always talked about staying at this unit... looked up at it for years from the center of Baytown Wharf. It exceeded our expectations. High ceilings and two sets of double doors are impressive. Patio is high enough to be a part of everything but not in the middle of it. We usually stay on the beach side of Sandestin, but will always stay here if we can from now on!
