February in Luau
Overall was fine--great views! We were familiar with this location, so no surprises. Extra requests were made to housekeeping and they worked it out--really appreciated that! And it looked very clean when we moved in. The property does have a bit too much of the "owners" things around--beach accessories stacked on the balcony, too many books and magazines in drawers and boxes and too many extra pillows, etc., stashed in closets. A good paint job and decluttering would help.

Great stay at the Luau!
My husband and I plus 2 other adults just returned from an 11 night stay at the Sandestin Beach Resort in condo 7608/7610 Bldg. 1) at the Luau. This is a 2 bedroom lockout condo which means the 2nd bedroom has its own entry door. The lockout unit is very spacious but the bedroom in the main unit is quite small compared to others we’ve stayed in but we made it work. The extra 1/2 bath off the living room was a nice bonus. The kitchen has nice cookware but the pantry is full of dishes so there wasn’t much room to store none refrigerated grocery items. The large windows made it easy to enjoy the views from the 16th floor and the wrap around balcony was nice. The owners packed a lot into this condo to ensure you had what was needed while staying there. The grounds were immaculate and everyone was very nice. Short walk to the beach but you will need something to carry your things if you plan to bring chairs/tent, etc. Parking in the garage is limited and kinda tight. Check-in is exactly 4:00 but it was a breeze to check-in and check-out. Overall we throughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this unit to anyone visiting Sandestin.Ellen R.

The condo at Luau1 was so clean and spacious. The condo was fully stocked and nicely furnished. I loved that we had 2 1/2 baths and I loved the wrap around deck. It was perfect!!The property was not directly on the beach, however it was a quick 5 minute walk. The pool was also very refreshing and spacious enough so we didn't need to worry about getting chairs.Christi R.

February in Luau
Enjoyed our stay. Only comment is--it would be helpful if property owner left the lock-out unit's closet cleaned out/empty, so renter could have space for storage. Also, just a comment for all properties--bed ruffles are bothersome--get in way etc., easily tripped on.

Overall, the condo was great. Nice size, clean and pretty view. We had two bug problem that were not fixed. The dryer did not work, I called and they said they sent someone out to fix it but it was never fixed. Therefore, our beach towels were always wet. Second, the internet didn't work. My husband called twice about it but it was never resolved. If these problems were solved I would definitely stay here again, but because they weren't I cannot say we would rebook this condo.Sandra H.

Another awesome vacation
I’ve stayed at the Luau once or twice a year for almost 10 years. I love this location. Close to shopping, great dining and of course the beautiful beach. I love that they are upgrading the units with wood/tile floors, lighter drapes and furniture. So pretty. The condos are well kept and the rental process is always easy. Thanks again for another awesome vacation. We will be back.Leslie W.

Vacation was seamless. Unit was exactly what we expected. View was amazing for not being directly on the beach. Decor was updated and facilities and grounds were perfect! Only problem we had was with electronic door to unit but that was fixed immediately by someone with a phone call. Great getaway!Jaime T.

Great but needs some updates
We had a great time and the condo was beautiful. However the beach umbrella that was provided was not very good. Had holes in the top and was rusting away the material. There were also no linens for the pull out beds anywhere to be found. Given the condo is walking distance to the beach it would've been nice to have a roller cart/wagon that is beach accessible to use so you don't have to carry loads of stuff or drive across the street with your beach items such as the chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. it does get very heavy and difficult when you don't have a roller cart/wagon. It was also very confusing getting the necessary information for us to get access to the condo. We were originally informed from the site to use the app Home Away but then when it came time to get into the condo none of the access codes or anything were in the app. It was all under a different app called Hospitality by Glad to have you which is who My Vacation Haven uses which is the property management company. Other than those few hiccups it was great!
