Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Excellent waterfront location right on Miramar Beach
  • Spacious condos with full-size kitchens and balconies
  • Guests have private access to beach and free beach chairs
  • An adequate pool for condo complex of only 29 units
  • Poolside barbecue area with modern gas grills
  • Short drive to Destin and nearby attractions

Cons

  • No washer/dryers in units
  • Fee for Wi-Fi
  • Some dated appliances and furniture

Bottom Line

Huntington by the Sea's 29 units sit on the white sandy shores of Miramar Beach, near Destin. Condos offer lovely views of the turquoise Gulf waters from big balconies, as well as full-size kitchens, a spacious living room area, and free DVD rentals -- but no washer/dryers. Condos are big but vary greatly in decor between units, and most have dated furniture that's showing wear and tear. This no-frills resort is appealing mainly for its private access to the beach and free beach chairs.

 Location

Right on Miramar Beach, about 15 minutes from Destin

Miramar Beach (not to be confused with Miramar City in South Florida) is one of 15 beach neighborhoods in South Walton County, an area that encompasses about 26 miles of Gulf of Mexico shoreline and the communities of Grayton Beach, Sandestin, and Seaside.

Located on a peninsula that separates the Gulf of Mexico and Choctawhatchee Bay, Destin is a Florida Panhandle city that draws over four million visitors each year. It’s known as “the world’s luckiest fishing village", and like many of the other beach towns that sit along the Gulf, its sugar-white sands are a popular tourist attraction.

  • 34-minute drive to Northwest Florida Regional Airport
  • 12-minute walk to Silver Sands Designer Outlet Center
  • 5-minute drive to Hidden Dunes Beach and Tennis
  • 6-minute drive to Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort
  • 8-minute drive to Destin Commons Mall
  • 13-minute drive Big Kahuna’s Amusement Park
  • 13-minute drive to Zoo Gallery
  • 15-minute drive to Destin
  • 24-minute drive to Grayton Beach
  • 26-minute drive to Seaside
  • 52-minute drive to Panama City Beach
