Inside this spacious townhome hangs a hand painted plaque that reads “If you’re lucky enough to be at the beach, you’re lucky enough.” Something beach vacationers and beach bums alike have come to appreciate is that every day at the beach is a delightful adventure. You can enjoy endless sunsets and rolling turquoise waves from this tri-level beachfront vacation home. Relax with a good book on one of the two porches to the sound of children laughing and sea birds chirping. Bask in the sun or float in the crystal clear water any time you like, the whole Gulf of Mexico is just down the back stairs.
At the end of a long day unwind i...n the comfortable living room with 10 large windows enhancing the Florida scenery. Entertain guests with a fully stocked kitchen and dining room. And sleep soundly to the ebb and flow of the tides.
Sea Winds also sits on highly coveted property. Not only is there nothing blocking amazing views, but the wildly popular Whale’s Tail beach bar and grill and Pompano Joe’s Restaurant are within walking distance. Both feature exciting beach activities like jet-skiing, a huge trampoline, and many more water sports. Several great golf courses are also nearby along with the renowned Silver Sands Factory Stores with all your favorite designers. You can enjoy what millions of people flock to Destin for, the best beaches in a great place.

Being right on the beach with a deck and patio, and being just a walk away from fun restaurants is the best part of staying in this Seawinds unit. Great for families traveling together because of the number of bedrooms and four bathrooms. It has a nice sized kitchen for a beach town home unit. The downstairs master bedroom is like a dungeon with no windows and the bed does cave in at the middle. The images made it seem like the small tv room was a separate area, but it's really in the twin beds bedroom on the ground floor. The second master is in very nice loft area, but there's no privacy and sound travels up from the den below making it a rather noisy option. The unit is close to many fun activities, too. However, don't be too fooled by the gift card you get with the rental. It was one of the reasons I chose this rental company for Spring Break. Three of the activities we wanted to do were still closed for the season so check on that before going. Probably a better deal in the summer. The place was clean enough, but it needs to be deep cleaned. Lots of dust build up on ceiling fans.We had to call a plumber In because the toilets are low flow and one clogged easily, but they sent him within an hour and he was in/out in a jiffy and we didn't have to be there when he came by. We did have to call several times to get our complimentary beach chairs set up but again, I think things run smoother during the summer. Newman Carson Properties was great, Seawinds 3 was fine for what we needed for two families, being on the beach was great, and overall it was good value. Love the area!!

The location was wonderful. We had a few issues with the townhouse. In one bathroom you couldn't take shower cause the drain would not stay open and the clothes dryer would take at least three cycles to dry clothes. Hopefully both of these have been fixed since I reported them when we checked out. Read more

being at the beach was great, but for the money we paid we would not stay there again. The dishwasher broke, didn't realize until Wednesday. Dryer was terrible ,it took four dryer cycles to dry four beach towels!! So all we could use the washer/dryer was for swimsuits and towels and that would take all day. The king bed mattress on the drive up floor was terrible. The whole left side of the mattress rolled you toward the middle. on the up side we loved having the beach chairs set up everyday and the convenient to the beach. Living room to small would have liked more seating. The dishwasher was replaced on Friday night. Would not stay here again. Very dusty,check inside doors Read more

Thank you for your comments on your stay. The dryer vent had come loose and when discovered and re-attached, worked perfectly. The dishwasher was replaced as soon as possible, and the concerns about the mattress have been reported to the owner. We apologize if these issues in any way affected the guests' stay. We are pleased that the guest was happy with the ease and convenience of the beach service, and we look forward to the opportunity of hosting them again when they are in Destin!

Had a great time staying at the house. Right on the beach makes a world of difference. Kids enjoyed themselves and so did we. Would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing week at the beach. Will try to be back soon.
Much Much more than expected!!!

We had such a great time...we went parasailing and my 7 year old ended up going 3 times (he loved it) which he was able to do it so many times due to the gift card that y'all make available with all of the good deals! The house was wonderful...there was enough room for everyone and there was a lot of good quality time spent bonding with everyone in the house and on the beach!! Everyone loved it and we were all thrilled to be able to make such special memories there and with each other!! We will definitely be looking into booking with y'all again for next year!! Thank you for the wonderful service and all of the extras that you offer...we definitely had a lot of fun with those!!

This beachfront townhouse was perfect. With 3 levels, we all had enough space. The view and location were awesome. Since we were 3 moms vacationing on Spring Break with our daughters, the fact that we had 4 bathrooms was a must! Would definately rent this townhouse again.
great location, great view and access to ocean, comfortable home

Comfortable, spacious townhouse with great views from all three floors with the beach right at the back door. Convenient location in Miramar beach, close to everything but the beach was not crowded. Unit could stand to be updated (fixtures, washer/dryer) but everything worked, beds were comfy and decorating had a nice beach theme. Kitchen was spacious and well equipped for a rental. We went during spring break and there were large crowds of college coeds 200 yards down the beach at the WhaleTail Bar; close enough to see, far enough not to hear - it didn't bother us. Overall a great spot that exceeded our expectations.
One of the best vacations I have ever had

I have been there two years straight and am going back this year. Love being able to walk out the door and be on the beach. Love listening to the waves at night and taking a moonlight walk. Close to everything yet quiet. Can't wait to get back there. Retiring soon and would like to be a snowbird. The condo was extremely clean and very spacious. Enjoyed being able to take the shuttle to the Seafood Festival. My son loved going to Panama City for the bike run.

Older property with adequate amenities. Comfortable for four couples with ideal beachfront location. Had a problem with kitchen plumbing that affected our kitchen use for two days. Your staff took appropriate action to resolve the problem.
Fabulous Vacation Experience
Left on 04/18/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | Murray Giles
This was our first vacation in Destin, and we could not have asked for a better condo than Sea Winds #3. With its location right on the beach, we had breakfast every morning on one of the three decks and watched dolphins swim by. When we were not in the water or on the beach, just relaxing in the spacious, well appointed and clean condo was a treat. The beach umbrella and chairs that were set up every morning were an added bonus. We have vacationed at condos or timeshares in the past, and this was by far the best! Its four bedrooms and living area were spacious, clean, and almost like home, and the remodeled kitchen had everything we wanted. Of course the beach in Destin can't be beat, and we had a great family fishing charter with Captain Stan Phillips on The Sea Winder. Our only complaint about the condo was that the garbage can in the kitchen as well as the one outside were a little small. But that seems rather picky after such a great time.

Beachfront Family Vacation Destination
Left on 11/11/2011 for a stay in June 2011 | Deb
The location of this beachfront home was perfect and the size and number of bedrooms was just what we wanted for 7 adults and 2 children. We have always loved the Destin beach area and have rented from Newman Daily multiple times over the past 12-15 years. The multilevel decks were great, gave private areas to readers and easy access to the beach. The only negative I can say about the home is the open loft master bedroom above the living and breakfast area. The beautiful sunshine came in the uncovered windows early and the early riser's voices were not muffled because of the open loft room, so if you like to sleep in then you will need to choose one of the 3 other bedrooms.
Newman Daily was Great, the Condo was not..!
Left on 08/04/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Daves556
We arrived at the Seawinds 3 condo to a stove that had 3 of the 4 burners not working, porch lights that did not work and an a/C unit that froze up a couple of times on the lower level. The carpet was filthy and the couch and love seat even more filthy than the carpet. The unit was outdated and 4 of the family members caught a viral infection with sore throat, headaches and eye infections.This may or may not have been due to the condo, but it certainly could have gone either way. The place was very dirty and very disappointing for the high price paid for the unit. I expected better accommodations for the money, that's for sure. We even left a day early.
However, Newman Daily as a separate issue was very responsive and did everything as quickly as possible to repair and meet our requirements on broken appliances or items in disrepair. I do highly recommend Newman Daily as their staff was very helpful and gave very certain guarantees when the oil spill could have been an issues. Thanks to them for their integrity.

We stayed at he seawinds 3 and it was beautiful place and the views were great. the sand is pretty. I would return in a warmer month as I am from Flordia and it was too cool to go into the water but well worth it.

Relaxing, But Cold
Left on 01/06/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | South Florida Sun Bird
We drove up from Fort Myers to spend some after Christmas time with our son and daughter and their families. The check-in service was great, and the the condo was clean and ready to go. It is a fantastic location right on the beach, although it is starting to show it's age. Other than needing a new toaster, and a larger hot water heater, we had everything we needed. It was colder than we expected, so we didn't get to spend much time on the beach. However, there is plenty of other things to do locally, so we still had a good time. We would difinitely stay at the Seawinds again, and will without a doubt use Newman-Daily for future Destin vacation reservations.

The only thing was the room wasn't ready at 3 for check in. When we got there they said 3-5 check-in which I had not heard of in the past. We drive a very long way to come down there and have always timed it to get there at 3 and have always been able to check in. If there is going to be a varible time on check-in there should be a varible time for check out (such as from 10-12). When paying for a day and not being able to get in until 5, is not good. Those 2 hours make a lot of difference. I know Sat is a crazy day but maybe more housekeepers should be lined up or something. Just some feedback. Other than that, we had very good service whenever we needed something from the ND office and they extended our stay by a day on the fly and were very nice about it (Betty was who I worked with on that). Worked with Landra on the original reservation and she was very easy to work with as well. Ryan was very nice too. There was another lady in the office that was pretty stressed the day we checked in...but like I said, I know Sat. are crazy days!

This years rental location was wonderful because is was right on the beach, but the actual unit did have some issues. We had problems with the garbage disposal leaking out water from under the sink, which someone came out 2 days later to install a new one, but cluttered up the kitchen during the day and he didn't have all the parts he needed to complete the job, so left a small mess and then came back to repair, but it still leaked the remander of our stay. He was nice though...:) The ice maker was old and dated and made very little ice. The washer had to be rigged everytime we washed as well. The trigger button that pushes in when the hatch closes would stick and you would have to pop it with your finger. The washer has seen it better days. The televisions were very small and we had internet connection issues, the server had to be rebooted after 3 days of no service. The upstairs bedroom was nice but being open to the 2nd floor was not convenient for our party. On the plus side, there were several beach toys there to use and enjoy and it was a very convenient location. I would never not recomend this out of respect, but we will not rent this unit again. Thanks, Patty Desonie
Lot's of room and beautiful beach area, but could use minor reno
Left on 07/27/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | MED
We stayed in Seawinds 3 for a week. The beach was clean, quiet and beautiful. The free beach service and large decks were great. Other areas of the beach can get quite crowded, but we did not have this problem. The wifi and grill were bonuses. The townhome was large and spacious. The a/c worked great, and all the furnishings were adequate. However, I would suggest some minor repairs. First, the upstairs shower needs better cleaning, it had mildew on the sliding door and inside the faucet handles. Second, some of the closet doors are rusty and need repair. Third, the bathroom door on the second floor sticks. Fourth, the cabinets in the kitchen need to be refinished (looks like they may have went through a few hurricanes). Lastly, many of the closets, kitchen cabinets, and bathroom cabinets on all floors need to be replaced or cleaned better as they smell like mildew (maybe due to hurricane damage). We would probably rent this unit in the future again despite these minor problems.

Seawinds #3 is a great location- walking distance to lots of basic needs-coffee, pizza, convenience store, Pompano Joe's restaurant. The townhouse overall is in very good condition and very clean and I am picky about my accomodations. One issue for us was that the master BR is a loft type-very open and spacious but not exactly what we needed. It is truly steps from the beach which was awesome. The minor problems that we incurred with townhouse were promptly dealt with by Newman Dailey- lock didn't work, a/c unit, etc. The maintenance guy was there in 30 minutes or less. I am very impressed with the service we received and will absolutely rent from them again!
