We're signed up for a week at Club IntraWest Sandestin in January 2009 via RCI straight-weeks timeshare exchange (i.e., no points, no Last Call, no Extra Vacation, etc.).
We've never been on the Florida Panhandle before.
Our prior Florida vacations have been mainly Jacksonville-Orlando-Tampa-Lakeland-Mulberry-Clearwater-Zephyrhills-Thonotosassa, etc., plus St. Augstine -- with side trips to Rockledge & Melbourne & Ft. Lauderdale.
If we can snag a nice Orlando Last Call or Instant Exchange, we'll take another Florida timeshare week right after Sandestin -- back-to-back January weeks in Florida for the 2nd straight year.

I own two units there. Phase I is the older building, but closer to the beach. However, many units do not have a gulf view. Phase II is the new building consisting of all three-bedroom units. However, it is a longer walk to the beach, but gulf view from all units. We actually have never stayed there, as I usually trade by summer week for other areas. However, I will be staying there in 2010 in the three-bedroom. I own every other year in Phase II.
If the north wind is blowing--yes, March can be cold. Our water pipes have frozen numerous times in Dec, Jan, Feb and March. We have the 4 seasons in the Panhandle and we say winter usually last about 6 weeks. Some years, no frost--. Haven't seen snow either. But Destin gets a lot of snowbirds from up North and Canada. It all depends what your use to.
