This boutique hotel was built in 2010 and has tasteful, modern furnishings. Part of the TopSail Village, several units are available for rent. Two- and four- bedroom suites, each with two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens and washers and dryers, are best for families. They range from 956 to 1,450 square feet respectively, and come with flat-screen TVs with DIRECTV access and DVD players. Please be aware that children under 12 are not allowed to stay in the king suites — only the two and four bedrooms.
Located a half-mile from public beach access, at Stallworth Preserve, and less than a mile from TopSail Hill Preserve State Park, there is plenty of white sand beach within easy reach. You can also enjoy giant sand dunes and coastal dune lakes. Grand Boulevard shopping and the boutiques, galleries and festivals of Baytowne Wharf are also close by. Grayton Beach and WaterColor are fun areas to visit, too.
A pool and easy parking are provided, but daily maid service and telephones are not. Wi-Fi is included and most units have private balconies or patios.

Our son was married at Celebration Hall, so the location was very convenient. Very clean and nicely furnished units. We stayed in a two room unit. We had a fully equipped kitchen. Slight manageable drawback, the parking spots in front of the units are not paved, so your car mats and shoes will get dusty. Use the mats in front of your unit.
This is a nice hotel that is close to the hustle and bustle of Destin, but not located right in the middle of it. The setting is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. There are several different beaches within 3/4 of a mile of the hotel. The rooms are huge and very clean. I especially liked that the room had a ceiling fan. We will definitely stay here again.
