You will have a King size bed and a queen size cool gel memory foam sofa bed, a kitchenette with microwave, kitchen sink and a mid size refrigerator.

PETS are not allowed per the HOA (no matter how small).

If you reached us through vrbo/homeaway/expedia you will have to book through that channel as we do not accept direct bookings when approached through those channels. For repeat guests we may provide our vacationsatdestin site. 

Our similar other unit's VRBO listing numbers are given at the end of this description. You may check those if your dates do not show availability.

Cleaning and linen fees are included in our pricing either under "Resort Fee" or "Property Association fee". The longer you stay, the less rent you pay per night since the Resort fee is averaged over your stay. 

Our check-in is at 4pm. Check-out is at 10am. Since you directly go to the unit with your assigned door code, there is no deadline for checking in. You may check-in any time after 4 PM of the check-in day, just like you would at your own vacation home. 

If this condo is not available for your dates, do check our other 3 condos at Luau. 

With the largest balcony floor plan and next to the small man made creek and water sounds, you will have your own oasis. This is a luxury decorated Studio condo that sleeps up to four. We have one King Size bed, a sofa in the living room that converts to a Queen Size bed. A bathroom, kitchenette, and small living room exactly as seen in the pictures. Free High Speed WiFi is included. We have big Screen LCD TV in the unit. Netflix is provided as complimentary. Coffee Machine, blender, Microwave oven, hotel size Refrigerator, Iron/Ironing board are included. This is a non-smoking unit and guest pets are unfortunately not allowed in LUAU.

Luau is the newest building at the beachside of the Sandestin Resort. The Luau complex has one of the nicest saltwater pools on the resort, with waterfall, kid pool, hot tub and snack bar with tropical surroundings. There is a fitness center and a Meeting Room and plenty of jogging and biking trails to enjoy. Luau’s 11th floor observation deck is great for beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The Luau buildings sit on top of a rise just 2 minutes walk from the beaches of Sandestin right next to Hilton.

The Sandestin Resort area is the best resort in the area and has so much to offer. This security gated community provides added safety for the family. With its championship golf courses, tennis centers, miles of bike/jogging trails, miles of beaches, restaurants, shops, Baytowne Wharf, and children’s activities all just inside the resort. The Marina with jet ski and watercraft rentals, Jolee Island and the multiple tree houses and nature walks are just a part of what this top resort destination offers. You will have plenty to do!. Sandestin Kid’s club is very highly rated.

We offer a combination Keurig and Regular coffee brewing machine as seen in the listing pictures. Please bring coffee and filters. 

You will find this ground floor Luau II condo is a luxury place to relax and enjoy while visiting the Sandestin Resort area. This condo has a large patio next to a small pond with a fountain. You will hear the sound of water as you may have a quick bite or relax at the patio. Most studios either have a very small balcony or no balcony at all. We love this studio primarily because of its modern design, 55 inch smart TV and most of all it's very large patio. Our condo is family owned. We will provide you with personal service you will not find with a big management company. 
Our condo is equipped with a key-less lock system that makes check-in a breeze, no keys to get, just go directly to your room. Plus the key-less lock system provides added security for you and top that off with the fact that the Luau is in a gated area with controlled access you could not find a safer spot.

There is no check-in or check-out at the lobby. You simply go to the condo, enter the door code and make yourself at home. There is also no front desk in the building. 

If you arrive early, feel free to enter into the resort and enjoy the beach. However we do not allow early check-in's to the unit especially during high season since the unit is mostly booked back to back and we need extra time to prepare the condo

Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway or planning that beach family vacation this is a great place for you.

You will have access to our beach closet that includes beach chairs, umbrella, and beach toys for that sandcastle! All you have to do is grab the beach bag, grab the chairs, and stroll to the beach. Since we are on the beach side it is a short 2-3 minute walk from your front door!
Our goal is to provide you a family owned place to stay that makes you feel like you’re in a home away from home and you will return for years to come. I will be available to you 24/7. We have enjoyed the area for years and hope you and your family will do too!

Cleaning is provided at the end of your stay, right after you check-out. We kindly ask that you follow check-out timelines. If there is no guest arriving after you check-out or check-in, we may allow early check-in or late check-out. Just ask.

We love beach vacations. Growing up in Cyprus, I used to think that no beach is better than the salty waters of Mediterranean and our sandy beaches are the best. Then I saw turquoise waters and sugary white beaches of Destin, Florida and fell in love at first sight. This is the reason we bought beach condos in Destin. We visit regularly as a family and rent them ourselves. Our four Luau condo's are located at the beachside of Sandestin Resort next to Hilton, Our two Bahia condos are at the Bayside of Sandestin right next to the Village of Baytowne Wharf. We also own at Pelican Beach Resort, Majestic Sun Resort at Seascape and Waterscape Resort. All are beachside updated properties with great reviews.
