Villa Vanilla is a 2nd floor Gulf view corner condo unit in the highly sought-after Leeward Key condominium. You can literally be at the beach in 20 seconds! This corner unit has been updated for maximum ease and decompression while at the beach. Morning coffee with beach views and Gulf breezes has never been so relaxing. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with twin vanities. Super easy access to the beach via the elevator or stairs. Just open the sliding glass doors and soak up your slice of paradise!

Leeward Key is a highly desired, 12-story condo building with stunning Gulf views and a private beach! It is one of the few Destin area properties with a pool right on the beach! The (seasonally-heated) pool has restrooms, outdoor showers, and wifi. There's an additional pool on the north side of the condo building, which has outdoor gas BBQ grills. Leeward Key also has an onsite Fitness Facility and snack/DVD vending machines, and 2 elevators servicing its 12 floors.

Unique Benefits

This is one of the only condos to have two pools and one which sits directly on their private beach. You can literally walk next door to Kenny D's Beach Bar N Grill or across the street to Captain Dave's Seafood on the Gulf. Talk about convenience. The views are spectacular and the location cannot be beat.

Area Information

We are close to restaurants, water sports, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall (largest in the south) and Destin Commons. Destin Commons is a unique, open-air village, featuring upscale shopping, casual and fine dining, and a 14-screen, stadium-seating movie theater located 1.5 miles west. You can safely bike with the kids along the paved bike paths for awesome beach views. Our favorite activity. Beach bike rentals are available on-site!

You can walk to either Captain Dave's On The Gulf, Kenny D's Grill & Beach Bar, or Pompano Joe's Seafood and sample some of the local seafood flavors or just to relax and sip on a cold one.

Owner Info

Josh O'Brien

Josh O'Brien

Year Purchased: 2022

About the owner: Our very first road trip to Destin was in 1987. We immediately fell in love with the sugar white beaches and pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It was our little secret love nest that consisted mostly of walking on the beach and regular trips to the fish market. Well, Destin is no longer our little secret and we are very passionate about sharing all that it has to offer.

We have traveled extensively and "rented" property for our own family vacations. So we fully understand and appreciate the importance of finding a great location, having easy access to amenities, and a quality home that is clean and well maintained. In 2001 we took the plunge and purchased our first property in Destin and started living "The Dream". Eventually we moved to Destin full-time.

When we are asked why we manage the properties ourselves, it's a pretty easy answer; Who cares more about a property than the actual owners? Our properties are not "out of sight, out of mind" investments with an out of state owner that is managed by some large cookie cutter property management company. That is far from our approach. We live close to the rental properties and provide a hands-on approach with our guests and the properties. We even conduct our own weekly inspections! We also differ from the "herd" by regularly updating and upgrading our properties to keep the homes up-to-date and current. Since Betty has her Florida Real Estate license, it keeps us abreast of the most current trends in the housing and vacation rental markets.

Whether you are looking to rent a high-quality vacation home or looking to purchase something for your family, we have the experience to help. Please call or email us, we would love to hear from you.

Happy Vacationing,

Why this property? Absolutely one of the best locations in the Destin area. This 2nd Floor unit has incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico. Leeward Key is one of the few condos that have a pool directly on the beach! As well, you can walk to several seafood restaurants and grab a cocktail too! This unit was completely remodeled in 2019. As the name implies, you can just relax and Sail Aweigh.
