Description

Fall dates available; Ask about discounts

Welcome to Margarita Villa, a 3 bedroom & 3 bath home located in the Villages of Linkside in the wonderful community of Sandestin.  Marg Villa is a freshly updated 1700 square foot home sitting on the Links Golf Club with amazing views of Choctawhatchee Bay.  We have taken great care in providing our guests with many amenities and luxuries that should be expected in a luxury beach home!

The open floor plan is definetly an eye catcher!  The two large living areas and two separate dining areas are perfect for multiple families to gather and entertain.  The three bedrooms, bunk beds and futon provide ample sleeping arrangements for 8 people.  Prefer the outside?  Our patio features a pergola, new large sectional sofa, dining table and new gas grill.  Enjoy the bay views, watch the ducks & squirrels playing or soak in the cool breeze from the bay.  Our patio is glorious!!

The master bedroom & en suite are a vacationer's dream.  Large bedroom with 55 inch TV and new king size Serta Sleeper mattress await our guests.  The en suite featues a large walk in shower with rainfall shower head which provides a spa-like showering experience.  Little extras include a lighted vanity mirror, a magnified/lighted makeup mirror and bluetooth speaker in the bath.  

Other items which we hope will make your stay EXTRA special include dual Keurig coffee maker, Instapot, Ninja blender, fully stocked kitchen, hair dryers, iron & board, 42 inch TVs in bedrooms, new leather sofas & 75 inch 5g Smart TCL television in living area, 6 seat golf cart and a fun beach decor!  

THE BEACH!!  The beautiful Emeral Coast beach and sea are only a 5 minute golf cart ride from the house.  Sandestin is a private beach with chair set ups, activities and snacks/drinks available.  Our house however meets most of your beach needs as we provide 6 beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, toys and even beach towels!  
How about location?  No need to wait for an elevator, deal with noisy condo neighbors or search for parking spots.  Our home sits on a quiet cul de sac within the secure, gated community of Sandestin (the security guards take their job serious).  House has two parking spots right in front of house (additional spots are available within the neighborhood).

Don't worry about that crazy Destin traffic because you won't need to leave Sandestin!  Restaurants, shopping, entertainment and, most importantly, the BEACH, are all within a couple minutes of Margarita Villa.  Included in your stay is a 6 seat golf cart that will take you to the beach, Baytown Wharf and Grand Boulevard in a couple minutes.  It's also fun to take the golf cart on a leisurely drive to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of Sandestin.

But if you aren't here to relax, Sandestin has it all!  Multiple golf courses, a nationally reknown tennis facility, boating, kayaking and fishing are available on the property.  Cast a line in one of the small lakes around the house or charter a boat at the marina and go out for some redfish or amberjack!  The marina has many fishing and boating options.

Besides the beach, the other important activities of any vacation...eating and shopping!  Sandestin has both!  From the quaint shops of Baytown Wharf to the upscale stores at Grand Boulevard, shopping is a must in Sandestin.  There is a Publix grocery store in Grand Boulevard.  For the serious shopper, Silver Sands Outlet Mall with over 100 stores is only a 5 minute car drive down 98.

EATING!  The options are plentiful both within the Sandestin property or a short car ride.  Grand Boulevard offers such reknown restaurants as Emeril's, Tommy Bahamas, PF Changs, Flemings Steaks and Grimaldi's Pizza.  Also within a golf cart ride within the resort are Segar's Fine Steaks, Pizza By The Sea, Maple Street Biscuit Company, Marlin Grill, Another Broken Egg Cafe, Slick Lips Seafood, Rum Runners Cafe & Bar, Roberto's Pizza and The Beach House which is beach side and our favorite.  

Please feel free to contact us with any questions and to inquire as to availability and pricing.  The calendar is updated regularly and should reflect available dates.  Margarita Villa awaits!! 

PLEASE NOTE:  Calendar does not allow booking.  Please email or phone/text (270-305-5165) owner for pricing and booking.

This exceeded Our expectations ! We had 5 in Our party, including 2 fourteen year old boys. The Villa was spacious and comfortable, and had everything We needed, even for a night of cooking a big meal ! The Boys put the grill to good use and Our steaks melted in Our mouths ! The doors to the bathroom, in the master bedroom, opened up to a unique glassed in shower. This was such a spacious Villa ! We made great memories there !

This house exceded our expectations. It had much more room than we expected and is wonderfully decorated. You can park your car when you arrive and not need it for the rest of the week. Anything you could want is a short golf cart ride away. Thank you again to the Martin's for sharing there slice of paradise with us.

The house was beautiful and perfect for us. Golf cart helped a bunch getting to the beach and pools. It had literally everything we needed. Owners were awesome as well and nice neighbors! I highly recommend this for families that need more space than a little beach condo can provide.

Wastin away again in Margarita villa    Jun 05, 2022

Thank you to the Martin's for sharing their home with us. It was a wonderful week for our family of 6. The place is as advertised and our family would say better than advertised. Greg is a responsive owner that is easy to work with in making arrangements. Our family had enough to space to hang out and the place is very comfortable. . Our crew especially liked "cruising" around in the golf cart. Highly recommend a stay at Marg villa if you get the chance as we look forward to hopefully returning in the future.

Great Vacay!    May 28, 2022

review star

My wife and I rented for a week and our kids (all 21+) were come and go for the week. This place was very welcoming and as advertised. Looking over the backyard across The Links to Choctawhatchee is very relaxing. The golf cart was great and access to the pool and other resort locations was convenient. Having a great washer and dryer was a plus for us (it?s the little things). We really enjoyed and will put this on our list of preferred rentals.

Margarita Villa was beyond our expectations. This is the cuest place we’ve ever stayed. We are so in LOVE! The size is just perfect. The decor is unbelievable! If I could have dreamt the perfect place this is it. The beds are comfortable, the location is perfect, The golf cart is a huge bonus, the neighbors are great, we had everything we could ever need and never ran out. The Martins are down to Earth, caring, accommodating, honest, Amazing people. We feel so blessed to have found the Martins and 426 Linkside. We plan to make vacationing here a yearly tradition.

Our favorite home in Sandestin! Perfect layout for us with 3 bedrooms/3 baths. No stairs and pet friendly. Beautiful beach decor throughout and very clean. A lot of special extras we enjoyed: large tv's, luxury master bath, beach chairs/umbrellas, 6 seat golf cart, great patio area... read the full description on listing to see all this great house has to offer. Too many to list. Great house. Greg was awesome to work with. Hope to be back soon. We love Sandestin!

We do not provide beach setups (chairs & umbrellas on the beach), but we do provide a number of beach chairs, umbrellas, toys and beach towels for you to use at the beach.  Guests can rent setups at the beach if they desire.
All golf cart drivers must hold a valid state issued drivers license and by 21 years of age, per Sandestin policy.  As a condition of booking, the primary renter must provide drivers license copies of all drivers and sign a golf cart waiver which explains the conditions that must be adhered to.  Under no circumstances may an unlicensed driver operate the golf cart.  
To book, 50% of rental amount is due at booking.  The remaining 50% is due 60 days prior to stay.  You may cancel up to 60 days prior to stay and receive a 100% refund less a $250 administration charge.  Less than 60 days prior to stay then no refund is available.

The Sandestin beach is a mere 5 minute ride on our golf cart or via car.  There is ample parking for golf carts & cars.  There are rest rooms, showers, refreshments, chair setups and activities such as kayaks & wave runners that may be purchased at the beach.  As with all of the area beaches, it is very crowded during peak seasons.  
Our guests are free to use one of 2 swimming pools.  The nearest one on Audubon Drive is a 2 minute walk or 30 second golf cart ride from the house.  It is normally not crowded.  The second pool, Phil Hummel Aquatic Center, is 5 minutes from the house and is a larger, new pool with zero entry and lap lanes.  Both pools are heated during winter months.
