Beach Trip

By: Trip Date: 2022-07-16
Great condo and very convenient to everything! Having a golf cart was the icing on the cake. Rarely got in the car! Loved the resort and had lots of fun!

Great Vacation Place

Very nice place and great location!

Great Location!

By: Trip Date: 2022-04-11
We enjoyed our stay here. Everything was clean and as pictured but the couch could use replacing - we didn't need to use it a a bed so that was okay. The outdoor area could also use new/cleaner furniture but still okay. The golf cart was the best part of our stay! Made for quick easy trips everywhere on the property and much more fun than loading everyone up in the car 5x a day!

Destin review

By: Trip Date: 2022-03-03
Very good experience. Had a Great time Only negative was that the unit did not have enough coffee mugs only 5.

Nice place to stay!

By: Trip Date: 2021-10-11
Overall the unit was a great little place for a short term getaway. Location was awesome and the golf cart was an excellent amenity! I would recommend some sort of info in the app/email that states where the golf cart is parked. We had to call the manager to find out. Also, several doors need adjustment. They would swing open and not latch. Overall a great place and will def stay again.

Very Nice place

By: Trip Date: 2021-10-03
Very nice condo!!! The golf cart was a big plus to get to the beach. Great host/management company. Phyllis was very available for any questions and great to work with!!!! Great vacation.

Very satisfied overall

By: Trip Date: 2021-09-13
Our stay was both work and pleasure. The unit is clean and conveniently located to everything. Use of the golf cart was definitely a plus! The sofa was a little uncomfortable but the bed was great. The cushions on the balcony were rather dirty but we had a lot of rain while we were there and that may have contributed. Overall we were satisfied with the unit and would rent again. The management team went above and beyond when we had to leave early for a family emergency so a big thank you to Phyllis for answering late Saturday night and continuing to text with me on Sunday. Your kindness was greatly appreciated.

Wonderful stay

Fun Getaway

By: Trip Date: 2020-03-12
We wanted a quick mini-vacation and this was perfect - the only issue was that we wanted to stay longer! At first we were bummed that our place was across the highway and seemingly far from the beach, however we quickly were singing a different tune. The bay side is beautiful and we were in the PERFECT spot for dinner. The Wharf has so many cute options and it was only a few steps from our building. We were also thrilled to have access to a golf cart. It made our trip to the beach easy and quick. I don't see any downsides to this rental. The one question I had was answered almost immediately (we couldn't figure out which golf cart was ours). One other random thing we loved was the bed ... it was huge and super comfortable. We have found that that isn't always the case in rentals. I would recommend this unit!

Excellent - Thanks.

Nice family vacation

By: Trip Date: 2018-06-26
Had a really nice time staying st Baytown wharf! Pilot house is located steps away from all the restaurants and entertainment. The tram to the beach was also very convenient. Advice for future guests: bring your own towels and pillows... also, take advantage of using the umbrella and chairs provided in the unit. Beach rentals were 70.00 per day!!!! I left my garments bag and a few items behind and the managers immediately contacted me on my way home and had everything shipped to me via ups. I’m so thankful to Phyllis! She was also great about answering questions and keeping us in the loop about downloading the app before we arrived for all of the codes we needed. Highly recommend to families seeking a fun time!


By: Trip Date: 2018-07-08
Beautiful setting with a phenomenal view of the Florida panhandle. Very clean and comfortable!! Ms Patricia was very helpful as well. I would recommend this place but I don’t want to risk the chances of it being booked on my next vacation lol

Family vacation

By: Trip Date: 2018-07-03
Destin is our summer family vacation but this year we invited friends,there were 20 of us. We all decided to stay at baytown wrarf just because it's very convenient. You walk out of your condo and you have everything right there for you. Resturants,bars,shops and all kinds of family activities. There is some type of entertainment in the center courtyard ever night for families. You have a choice of two pools if you wish not to go to the beach but they do have a shuttle if you do want to go to the beach. Overall,great place to stay and bring the family.

Comfortable, & Convenient

Nice place. Long way from elevator but not a problem.

Pilot House at Baytowne Wharf

By: Trip Date: 2018-02-20
This was a lovely spot for a Florida stay. The condo was roomy with a well equipped kitchen and laundry facilities- perfect for a long stay. Pilot House is right in Baytowne Wharf Village so there are restaurants close by. We were disappointed that the beautiful pool in the complex was not heated. Although the weather was quite warm, the pool was too cold to enjoy a swim!

Wonderful stay

By: Trip Date: 2017-10-26
Condo was wonderful and had everything we needed. Maria was the best possible rental manager! The private balcony was very spacious and nice for relaxing. Access to Baytowne was easy and location was perfect. Will stay here again in the future. Thank you for answering all of our questions and helping us during our stay Maria!!!

Quiet Vacation Getaway

By: Trip Date: 2017-08-03
The condo was perfect. Beautifully decorated with all of the right amenities. It is located on the top floor in the corner of the building so it was very private and really quiet. Perfect for couples or a small family. The couch pulls out into a queen size bed. The balcony is relaxing. You're in the heart of the Village of Baytowne Wharf so it was so convenient to go out to eat, grab drinks, and go shopping. We would definitely love to rent this place again.

Great Condo! Super clean and cozy. Can't wait to stay again!

Great location, very nice

By: Trip Date: 2017-04-28
This unit is well furnished and nicely updated. It's really nice to be so close to Baytown Village. Everything is in walking distance. It's perfect for a couple. I wouldn't stay with more people, but for two it's really nice. The only part that I wasn't wild about was the bathroom (not great water pressure), but it certainly didn't take away from our stay.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Wonderful Vacation

Apartment looked as pictured, and was clean and well furnished. The master bed mattress was uneven and very uncomfortable. All else was in good shape.

Anniversary trip

By: Trip Date: 2017-03-17
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. We loved the condo and being close to the village. It was so nice to be able to walk out the front door of the building and be in the village. We ate at several of the restaurants in the village and every meal was good. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely plan to stay here again.

Best condo we have stayed at in Sandestin

By: Trip Date: 2017-01-14
Location,large private deck and second bathroom are great features. Management team were excellent to work with at addressing minor issues quickly and professionally. Close to village but unit was quiet. Central courtyard amenities were second to none.

Beautiful Condo

Destin Memories was very pleasurable to work with and our trip was wonderful. Everything was perfect.


By: Trip Date: 2016-09-04
This condo is probably the most perfect vacation condo or house we have stayed in. We loved the fact that it has one bedroom but two baths, a nicely appointed kitchen, and a GREAT private balcony.

This unit (#531) is a LONG way from the elevators, but the stairs are right outside the door. We work out every day so we love walking and climbing stairs, however if you're not able to do that, you may want to reconsider.

But for us, the condo was perfect, and we had our best Destin area trip ever!

Very satisfied

By: Trip Date: 2016-08-13
The condo was as pretty as the photos on the website. Very nicely decorated. King size bed very comfortable. Having two bathrooms was a great bonus. The large patio with ample seating was really nice. We had guests over and there was plenty of room for all. The patio furniture was of high quality too. Would definitely stay here again. The only thing I could suggest is to supply hangers in the closet. Had to lay clothes out flat so they wouldn't wrinkle. They did however have an iron and ironing board. Overall experience was great. Loved staying here.

Really enjoyed our stay

By: Trip Date: 2016-07-24
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It was in a great location close to the village and the property was really nice and clean. We had a lot of use out of the pool and fitness center. My kids dos not want to leave.
