Description

Newly Renovated! Owner-Managed BahiaCabana8 3BR 3.5BA

Bahia Cabana 8 is located directly on the pure white quartz sand beach of South Walton, BahiaCabana 8 is owner-managed. Our newly remodeled home is the perfect choice for your beach vacation! Step off the back deck onto the beach! The three balconies and beachfront deck all offer endless views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Our home offers a large 3rd-floor master bedroom with a king-size bed, large TV, en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, and a private deck overlooking the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. The upstairs guest room has a queen-size bed, has a flat-screen TV, a private bathroom, and plenty of closet space. The lower-level guest room has a queen-size bed, a large closet, and a private deck overlooking the beach. Built-in bunk beds have 3-inch memory foam toppers and built-in flat-screen TVs for each bed. The family room downstairs has a queen size sofa sleeper and a large flat-screen TV. The living room also has a queen-size sofa bed and a 1/2 bathroom on the main level. 

We often get questions about how to access the beach from our home. The door to the beach is at the back of the lower level. This door is right next to the lower level bedroom. Through this door, you go down a straight, sturdy set of steps, which leads you to the beach level deck and into the sand. 

Our family loves the beach and all water activities! It is truly our happy place. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It's time to relax, after all, everyone deserves their own beach!

Paradise!    Apr 03, 2021

Our family just spent a week at Baha’i Cabana and to sum our trip up in one word....amazing! Betsy and Teds condo is outstanding. Comfortable bedrooms and lots of great rest and sleep. Every amenity and kitchen gadget you’d need. Direct access to the beach! We soaked up the sun, sand, and sea for a week and can’t wait to return. We had everything we needed including beach chairs and toys, boogie boards, a grill, plenty of relaxation spots, and board games. Betsy is so helpful and responsive to every question! 10 stars all around!

Our New Favorite Vacation Spot!    Jan 02, 2021

review star

This location is better than we could have imagined! Being able to walk out the back door and be right on the beach was priceless when traveling with kids and Grandma. The beach area was private with the softest sand ever and we always had a huge area of beach to ourselves. We were able to play in the water even in January. The home was super clean and roomy, such a great space for a large group. We enjoyed having two living areas so we could set up the kids' video games on one floor and have the other TV area free. We had everything we needed to cook our meals, options for family game nights, and tons of books to read. We also worked and did school remotely from the house and everyone was able to find a quiet space. The views are just gorgeous and we spent a lot of time on each of the three balconies. The owners were very easy to communicate with and made sure we had everything we needed. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect Destin stay!    Aug 01, 2020

review star


This was our third year staying in Marla and Gary’s beachfront townhouse and we will continue our annual beach vacation for as long as they will have us. They are excellent hosts! The townhouse is even better in person and the location can’t be beat. We traveled with 7 children and 4 adults and having direct beach access without having to cross the road is priceless. The beach is private to the townhouse owners and guests so no fighting for a prime waterfront beach spot. We stayed the first week of August and our part of the beach was not crowded at all, but to the left and right of us, there were crowds. The townhouse is nicely decorated and clean. The views from the three balconies were spectacular! We are already planning to return for the fourth year! Thank you Marla and Gary

Our favorite place??    Jul 04, 2020

review star


We absolutely love staying here! The house is very warm and inviting as well as unbelievably clean! The views are gorgeous and the water is literally steps always! We are a large family so making everyone happy is almost impossible except for here! We never want to leave and return home! We truly feel like this is our home away from home. The owners are amazing and I could not ask for anything more! The property manager is also amazing! Anything we needed she was available to help and answer questions! We won’t stay anywhere else!!

Awesome Week    Jun 27, 2020

We were very pleased with our stay. Well maintained, perfect location, owners are friendly to work with. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of things available in the condo. We had two couples and five kids during our stay. We were able to give the kids the lower level and the adults took the two bedrooms on the third level. The lower deck was full of beach stuff, small rafts, boogie boards, etc. There was a basket by the door leading to the beach full of beach towels. The blender will make the smoothest ice to make a pina coloda. :) The chair in the master bedroom was my 6 year old's fave nap area. So comfy. The upstairs master bathroom was perfect. Lots of room. My only suggestion is that it would be nice to have more places to hang towels, but that's probably because 4 of us (my 2 kids) used the bathroom and had beach towels, bathing suits and bath towels to maintain. That's probably not the norm for most families. Things to help your stay....The first night is was a little warm downstairs, but we learned to keep the doors open between the rooms slid the tv stand down a hair to uncover the vent in the room with the couch. If you are used to sleeping with a fan, bring one. Don't put heavy stuff on the refrigerator door shelves. We have the same refrig and I always put my bottle of wine on the door. I wound up cleaning up a complete mess as soon as we got there. Nothing wrong with the refrigerator it just didn't hold my wine and it's probably better to warn the next person. :)

Best place in Destin    Jun 13, 2020

review star


This is the third time I've stayed at Sand dollar #8 Bahia Cabana. This is the absolute most beautiful place I've ever stayed in Destin. It is very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Waking up to the beach and ocean could not be more magical and this is what you get at this location. This condo is very well taken care of by the owners, Gary and Marla. It is located within walking distance of multiple restaurants and stores. I would highly recommend this vacation getaway to anyone looking for some beach therapy!

In September 2020, we were blessed to purchase Bahia Cabana from Marla & Greg. This review and the following reviews were written for them. We hope to maintain the high standards they established. Ted & Betsy Ramm
