5 Reasons Why SunDestin is our Favorite Family-Friendly Resort
June 1, 2021
Dreaming of a Destin beach vacation? Picture yourself at SunDestin Beach Resort, located in the heart of Destin overlooking sugar-white sand beaches, emerald green water, and miles of coastline in either direction. SunDestin is the perfect base camp for your family vacation, whether your crew involves a slew of little ones, a flock of tweens, or a group of young families looking for some fun in the sun.
Here are our top 5 reasons why SunDestin is our favorite family-friendly Destin resort.
1-, 2-, and 3-Bedroom Condos
Each 1,2, and 3-bedroom condo at SunDestin Beach Resort is fully loaded, complete with Gulf-front or coastline views and private balconies! With over 200 condos to choose from, each individual condo is fully stocked and brimming with personality, so you can choose a floor plan and decor theme to help make your SunDestin condo your home away from home. Open concept floor plans offer flexibility for everyone to gather together throughout the open kitchen, dining, and living area, or retreat to their own private bedroom or bunk. Plus, you can’t beat waking up to the sunrise with coffee in hand for a little ‘me time’ to start each day.
Location, Location, Location
Looking for a condo situated directly on the beach and close to Destin area attractions? That’s the beauty of SunDestin Beach Resort, you don’t have to compromise! Located in the heart of Destin and resting on over 100 yards of pristine beaches, SunDestin offers the best of both worlds.
When you’re ready for a day away from the beach, dive into the hustle and bustle of Destin area attractions. Here are just a few of our favorite nearby attractions.
- The Track (0.4 miles)
- Big Kahuna’s Water & Adventure Park (0.5 miles)
- HarborWalk Village and the Destin Harbor (2.8 miles)
- Destin Commons Shopping & Restaurants (3.3 miles)
- Silver Sands Premium Outlets (7.3 miles)
- Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park (7.9 miles)
Aside from amusement parks, shopping, and restaurants, the Destin area is home to 25 golf courses and North America’s largest fishing fleet. Destin isn’t called ‘The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village’ for nothing!
This 18-story condominium has numerous on-site amenities designed to maximize your beach vacation. If you’re in the market for rest and relaxation, SunDestin has you covered! With a seasonally heated indoor pool, an outdoor pool with an expansive sun deck, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, spa services, and the pièce de résistance: beach service along the property’s private beach, SunDestin is sure to be your family’s happy place for years to come.
But what about activities for the kids? Where do we begin! They’ll love the property’s indoor and outdoor pools, and they’ll especially love the kids’ splash pad. Plus, watersport rentals are available seasonally at the beach hut located at the beach entrance (where you can also secure your beach chair and umbrella rentals). Additional seasonal amenities include weekly dive in movies at the pool, tie dye t-shirt making, and more.
Plus, with a brand new on-site restaurant opening in May 2021, Pelican’s Roost by Fudpuckers, you’ll enjoy the added convenience of not having to plan every meal for your crew. Because hey, it’s your vacation, too!
Full Kitchens and Outdoor Grills
Speaking of meals, one of our favorite features of every SunDestin condo is its well-stocked kitchen. While you may not plan to cook much on your family vacation, it’s nice to have the option to cook a simple meal after a long day at the beach or use the condo’s ample counter space for a killer restaurant takeout spread. Plus, you can’t beat the convenience of stocking a full-size refrigerator with drinks, snacks, and beach picnic necessities for the week ahead!
On the other hand, if you love to cook… knock yourself out! Each kitchen is equipped with an oven, stovetop, full sink, and microwave, along with cooking tools, pots and pans, plates and utensils, and so much more. You can also move your cooking outside and use the outdoor grills located on the west side of the building near the outdoor hot tub.
