Beautiful condo    Mar 13, 2019

review star

We have been coming to Sandestin for 27 years and have stayed at Westwinds many times. This was by far the nicest condo we’ve stayed in. The decor is so pretty with attention to little details. Also, the kitchen was the most well stocked we’ve ever experienced with everything you need for cooking, etc. The personal touches were so nice. You can tell that this condo is managed by the owners and not a management company! We would definitely stay here again.

Our family had an excellent vacation thanks in large part to Shelly and her condo. The condo was exactly as described - stylishly furnished, well kept and clean with a great location! Shelly was very responsive and made everything very easy for us. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful condo and the management was outstanding!!    Oct 17, 2018

We just came back from a fantastic week at the beach. The condo was great and had everything already there we needed! (Coffee, kitchen supplies, soaps, cleaners, etc.). Shelley was super responsive and accommodated us to have a early check in. She also knew it was my birthday and left me cupcakes and treats. So sweet! I would definitely rent from her again!!

Perfect accommodations for an unbeatable beach retreat. This property has all high end amenities.    Oct 14, 2018

review star

We stayed 3 days at this beautiful beachfront location. The property was immaculate and has a well equipped kitchen with starter supplies. There is quick and easy acces to good food and shopping. The pool is huge and the beach is wide with fine, deep sand.

This will certainly be repeat destination in the future.

Very nice condo. Spacious, well appointed and very clean. We’ll be back!    Oct 03, 2018

What a nice place. Unfortunately, we had the red tide and Hurricane Michael cut our trip short by a day. The condo was perfectly fine for 2 couples. Right on the beach, very nice pool, excellent furnishings, well appointed kitchen and very clean. The owners kept us informed on the weather issues which we greatly appreciated. We look forward to coming back!

So beautiful. So clean. Easy access to pool and beach! Shelly is a DREAM to work with! If I needed anything, she was just a call/text away and was ON IT! The perfect place for my 4 girlfriends and I to have a super fun beach weekend!!

Wonderful vacation!!    Jul 22, 2018

review star

We had a fabulous family vacation in this beautiful condo. We loved the decor and it was very thoughtfully stocked with the little things that make a condo feel like home for the week. We can’t wait to get back to Sandestin and stay here again. The owners were kind and helpful!!

Excellent size for 5 to 6 people!    Jul 01, 2018

review star

We loved the unit as it was well stocked with all the things needed to be at home while staying at the beach. Despite the lower floor it had a great view, and we were pleased with the convenience of being only 3 floors up. We especially appreciated the soap and shampoo dispensers in the showers that were prefilled. That was an excellent amenity!! Overall we could not have been more pleased...oh and we appreciated the 11 am checkout time. We usually experience 10 am, so the extra hour was helpful!!


Yes! We offer discounts for stays that are 7 days, 14 days, 21 days, or 1 month. Please contact me for more information.
Yes! The Westwinds building is in a premier location on the Sandestin Beach. Just go to the lower level of the building, cross the pool deck, and head on to the boardwalk that takes you to the beach.
We provide 5 chairs, an umbrella, beach towels, small cooler, and some beach toys for your use on the beach. 
You can also rent beach chairs and an umbrella from the Sandestin kiosk at the end of the boardwalk. As of 2018, the prices for chair rentals were $55/day for 2 chairs and 1 umbrella. If you are staying multiple days, you can rent the chairs and the attendants will have the chairs set up and waiting for you whenever you hit the beach!
At this time, no. We are actively looking for a golf cart to add to our condo, but we have not found one yet.
Because we are searching for a golf cart, we decided not to purchase access to the tram for this year.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
My husband and I own, run, manage, clean, and maintain the condo. We have created our busines, Buried Treasure Rentals, to fully address any needs that our renters may have. We try to anticipate your needs and we hold everything to a high standard. We want everything to be as we would like to find it when we go on vacation!
Yes! We are happy to accomodate up to 3 payments for payments over $700. The first payment would be due at the time of booking. The second due 2 months before check-in, and the third 1 month before check-in.
The minimum for the first payment is $350. Unless otherwise specified, the payments will be split up into 3 equal portions.
We accept payments through PayPal. No cash or checks.
We ask that our renters have at least 1 person over the age of 23 staying at the property.
In the case of mainly younger guests, we ask that each guest sign our rental agreement. Each guest will be held responsible for damages, so we ask that everyone treats our home with respect.
Cancellation within 2 days of making your reservation will receive a full refund. PayPal may charge a refund fee. From 3 days after reserving and 30 days before your check-in, you receive a refund minus a $50.00 fee. From 29 and 4 days before your check-in, a refund for half the amount of your total price will be returned. From 3 days before your check-in, no refund will be given. No refunds for late check-ins, early check-outs, or bad weather conditions.
All cancellation subject to fees.
Should a hurricane or tropical storm threaten our area we will receive evacuation instructions from the National Hurricane Center and our local governing officials. Buried Treasure Rentals will not issue refunds of any payments beyond those outlined in the Cancellation Policy. For your own saftey, please follow instructions by local authorities.
