Updated, quiet, tranquil, clean, comfortable

By: Trip Date: 2022-03-01
Destin Memories was very organized and communicative regarding parking, directions and access to condo. Two full bathrooms was nice. Condo is in quiet area of complex and being on first floor was nice for easy access for walks out back door.

Perfect condo for Sandestin Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2021-09-03
We really enjoyed this condo. It was so nicely updated and clean. We loved how convenient it was to Baytown Wharf and the tram stop.

Great place to stay

By: Trip Date: 2021-08-04
Our rental was clean and perfect for my family of three. You have the feeling of privacy on the patio yet you are steps away from Baytown Wharf. The landscaping is just beautiful. We only have one complaint which is really insignificant as you’ll be enjoying the area if it isn’t raining; the TVs don’t have cable on three sample channels and you can’t use the smart TVs apps such as netflix and sign into your personal account. You will have WiFi so just bring your iPad if you plan on watching anything.

The room was very nice and clean. I loved being on the bottom floor it was convenient to the Village.Phillis was very pleasant and was stocked with plenty of bath towels and first day toiletries.

AH-mazing Getaway!!

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-28
The ease and professionalism from the owner was nothing short of AH-mazing!! They were able to accommodate on a short notice and the home was beautiful! Everything one would need was basically at your fingertips....would highly recommend!! There was kid-friendly area on the property that would be perfect for a family wanting a great, but yet safe experience. There was also shopping, various options for dining, nice entertainment, and fireworks!!

Pilot House 131

By: Trip Date: 2021-06-03
Good condo in great location. There were fruit flys flying around the condo so those should have been taken care of before we arrived. Directions were not very clear and the address was wrong so we initially went to the wrong place. Other than that it was a nice stay.

Great trip to Sandestin

Great getaway!

By: Trip Date: 2020-07-28
Home away from Home. Great time away! Amemeties nice! Close entertainment. The only thing little confusing were all the codes for parking hand door vs garage code and also location of pilot house pool was not easily defined. We had been there before and stayed at the grand so we assumed that was the pool assigned to the pilot house. However when we did find the right pool, it was very nice! Overall great vacation!

Great condo

We had a great experience at the Pilot House.

A weekend at Baytowne

By: Trip Date: 2020-06-13
Overall very pleasant. The unit was well cleaned. VERY COMFY bed and all the necessities!!! The pool was busy but clean and the access in and out to the “village” was simple!!! The biggest complaint comes in regards to the directions provided to get to the unit. The security personnel hassles ya and told us we needed to see guest check-in, once we waited in line there the person at the desk took 10 minutes searching for our reservation only to tell us it doesn’t exists because they don’t deal with the “pilot house”. Directions from there and gate/access codes were confusing, ended up driving over the entire area to finally stop and ask someone if they knew.

Clean, Comfortable and Relaxing

By: Trip Date: 2019-04-22
This unit was perfect for my husband and me. The entire place was very clean and up to date decor, and all of the furnishings were comfortable. It is just a short walk to the restaurants, shopping, and music in the Village or at the Marina; and a beautiful, expansive pool is just up a couple of floors up the elevators. We sat outside on the covered patio and enjoyed the quiet at night. There was construction during the day nearby, but it was hardly noticeable. The leasing agency was extremely accommodating- and we enjoyed working with Ms. Phyllis Scott. She was very helpful.

Thanksgiving retreat

Nice unit, no negative surprises, near center of activity but at far end of building, beautiful pool with hot tub, grounds well attended. Cooking needs are provided but little place for groceries. Parking available on second floor while unit is on first floor. Two nice TVs with Netflix. Fun night with Santa with several kid activities.

Beautiful condo great stay!

This condo is beautiful easy to access. Clean beautifully decorated this was a great vacation.

Nice 1BR Unit at a Very Good Price

By: Trip Date: 2018-01-20
Had our first stay in one of the Gateway units as a brief last-minute reservation. This is a very nice 1BR unit, conveniently located in the Village. The Destin Memories staff was awesome, as usual, and helped us to extend our stay with zero hassle when a Minnesota storm closed the airports up there.

A piece of paradise

By: Trip Date: 2017-08-20
We were so happy with pilot house 131. The location is perfect! Within walking distance to so much and just a short drive to other attractions. The unit was stunning. Just as pictured. It was clean and smelled lovely. Its was so convenient to have a washer and dryer in the unit. The pool area was well maintained and very relaxing. I felt that the hallways needed to be touched up, lots of paint missing but it didnt effect the unit at all. The shuttle service was so nice too. We loved pilot house 131, baytowne wharf and all it had to offer and especially the beach! Couldnt be happier!

Great room to stay in while in Sandestin

By: Trip Date: 2017-08-05
This was a clean, comfortable, convenient place to stay within the resort. The pool and Facilities on the third floor were top-notch and not crowded at all. Overall it was a great stay for me and my family.

Summer Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2017-07-29
My biggest issue was the cleaniness of the floors. Our feet were black on the bottom after walking around barefooted. I then noticed a mop with a sign "damp mop only, no chemicals." How are you supposed to get the floors clean by wetting the dirt and wiping it around? A better solution is needed in this area.

I have to concur with the previous review. "The bed head board bracket was pulled from the wall, the center roller of the toilet paper holder in the master bath was missing and one beach chair was broken."

We really loved the location of the unit. It seemed secluded and the back patio stayed shaded majority of the day - helped keep the unit cool.

We forgot our blender (very picky about my blender), but I was pleasantly surprised by the blender in the unit. It crushed ice quite nicely.

All was good, but three things. The bed head board bracket was pulled from the wall, The center roller of the toilet paper holder in the master bath was missing and one beach chair was broken.

Beautiful Condo!

By: Trip Date: 2017-07-13
This unit has been totally renovated and decorated to perfection. A nice sized covered patio with small fenced in yard area overlooks a canopy of trees and palms so is almost completely shaded with dapples of sunlight. A door to the first floor parking garage is a few steps away making for convenience to and from your car. Overall we enjoyed our stay in this adorable unit and of course Destin Memories is always great to work with!

Summer Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2017-07-08
Everything was great, for the exception of the large amount of gnats that were in the hallways and some in our unit. Other than that, our condo was nice and clean and the location was so convenient. So much to do without having to leave the property.

Overall a Great Stay

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-26
The condo we stayed in for this trip was fabulous. Very clean and I loved being five minutes from the village. We loved the color scheme and cleanliness as it made for a very peaceful stay. My only problems are more with the company I booked through. While the welcome package you emailed did contain some directions and instructions, as someone who had never been to sandestin resort, I still kind of felt lost. I would have loved to have a map of the resort as well as more detailed directions on how to use the shuttle service. We had no idea where to go or how to do that so we just didn't use it.

Beautiful and Awesome Condo

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-05
Great time!! Condo is gorgeous ....and super clean. Perfect location if you to be conveniently located to all the Baytown Wharf activities and restaurants. Location was quiet amd very relaxing. Trust me ...I am super picky so I would give 5 perfect stars all around.

Memorial Day Weekend

By: Trip Date: 2017-05-26
The pilot house was great! Baytowne Wharf had so much to offer in the way of entertainment and food. We enjoyed getting up early, having coffee at the coffee shop, and walking around the property. Our condo was very clean and comfortable.


By: Trip Date: 2017-06-01
Great experience! Clean and clear instructions.
Beach equipment should be retired.
No cold water in the kitchen.
Overall it was a great stay and convenient location.

Mother's Day Getaway

By: Trip Date: 2017-05-09
Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at this Pilot House Unit. It was beautifully decorated and so nice and clean. I usually stay at properties near the beachside, but this is so different, just very relaxing and so convenient for shopping and dining. I ride to the beach was easy and fast. Also, a big shout out to Maria, she was so friendly and helpful when I contacted her about our trip. You won't be disappointed with this one!

Baytown is the best for families. And the ease of location proximity from this unit, to it is fantastic. We love the area and everything new that has came as far as shopping, things to do, etc... It's the best place to vacation!

Pilot House 131 - April 4-8, 2016

By: Trip Date: 2016-04-04
Overall, our stay at Pilot House 131 was very enjoyable. The unit was as advertised. The king bed was moderately comfortable. While it was nice to have a sofa bed, it was really uncomfortable.
The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed. Owners provide enough paper towel, soap, towels, trash bags to get you started. If you anticipate needed more I'd pack a few extra garbage bags etc. to prevent from having to go to the store while there.
The second bath off the kitchen was a bonus!
Owner provided beach chairs, umbrella and a few water toys which was nice.
I really enjoyed the outdoor space. There was a very spacious patio that budded up to a cluster of trees just off the bike/walking path. If you had bikes you could just pull them up out was nice and private.
The management company was very responsive every step of the way. There was an issue where the code to the garage/building wasn't working. I called the on-call number provided and Doug gave me the updated code immediately. That could have been a disaster but it was taken care of right away.

Two things:
-The unit is on the first floor which in theory makes it easily accessible to entrance. However, it's the third to last unit (of about 16 units) on the first floor, which makes the walk to the condo seem very long - nothing to be done about it, but it's a little long with two kids, strollers, luggage, etc. Next time we may consider something a little closer to the entrance and/or the pool area (which is accessible by elevator on the third floor). It really depends on your preference.
-The carpet/tile seemed a little worn/dirty. Nothing outrageous but my 9-month old always had dirty feet/legs after crawling around on floor. The couch had also seen better days.

Our stay in Pilot House 131 was perfect! The condo was very well-appointed and comfortable. Everything we needed was right there. We booked not sure if our daughter and her friend were going to be able to join us, and the size of the condo was perfect for either two or four. I loved having two full baths. Everything was very clean. The location on the Sandestin Resort is perfect. We had always stayed on the beach side of the resort, but we decided to stay on the bay side this time. We were thrilled with the location. Pilot House is connected to the Baytowne Village Shopping/Dining area. It shares a parking garage (but condo guests get a private access to the garage, and we never had a problem getting a parking spot). We had a short five minute walk to The Broken Egg Cafe for breakfast and to Hammerheads for cocktails overlooking the marina. Hammerheads has a Groupon! Unit 131 is at the very end of the first floor, conveniently located right next to a stairwell to the parking garage and pool. The pool is located on the third level (actually on top of the parking garage). It is beautifully landscaped and clean, and we never had a problem getting lounge chairs. We will most definitely be booking Pilot House 131 again. Also, check out GolfNow for some great deals on local golf courses, both on and off the resort. Our fave was the Santa Rosa Golf Club, 15 minutes away on 30A, $22 for 18 including cart.
