Perfect vacation spot for families on Holiday Isle. The kids can feed the fish from their hand. Plenty of crystal white sand for the kids (up to 85 years) to build castles. This is where the dolphins play! Convenient location to scuba diving (you can carry your scuba gear out to the jetties). Be sure to bring your snorkeling gear. This is a very safe area where you can walk at night on sidewalks with a scenic view of either the Gulf or the fishing marina. Cheap shuttle service to shopping and restaurants.Short walk to waves or harbor. Deck area with view of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the harbor on the other. This is a nice, well-cared for condo that is kept very clean. Fully furnished with washer/dryer, full kitchen, nice bedrooms with linens. Bicycles and sand toys free for your use. All you need are personal care items. Garage beneath for your car plus additional storage area. No pets; no smoking.
Property was clean and had loads of extra sleeping. Master is very roomy and our kids loved the twin beds. We loved having coffee on the balcony in the mornings and ghost crab hunting at night. We found umbrellas, chairs, and bicycles in the garage. It was a short walk to the harbor (not the boardwalk) to see the boats coming in and a nice sunset. We had a fabulous vacation!! And look forward to returning in the future!!
We had the best time!! Its nice to be able to relax when you go to the beach and not have the big crowds you get at the resorts. The kids had the best time snorkeling around the Jetty's and exploring underwater. The Sand Dunes are beautiful and the views from the beach are amazing. The Condo is clean and very comfortable. Its setup to be a home away from home. Cannot wait to go back next year!!
This condo was perfect for our needs for our first trip to Destin. It was the perfect size for my family (two adults and two young adults.) The beds were comfortable & the condo sufficiently furnished. This condo isn't fancy, but it's clean and comfortable and there's a nice view of the water from the balcony. It's conveniently located to all area attractions. The owner provides pamphlets & info on these attractions as well as area restaurants.
We saw dolphins every day in both the jetties and on the beach. The walk to the beach is a little lengthy, but great exercise.The sunsets were breathtaking!!!
The kitchen was well stocked; plenty of pots, pans & dishes. We cooked breakfast a couple of times. It's an easy trip from the condo to many restaurants if you choose to enjoy the local flavor. There are plenty of beach toys, chairs and umbrellas, though we had brought our own and didn't use them. The only thing we really needed to bring were our own beach towels, which aren't provided, but that wasn't a problem. There were plenty of towels and wash cloths for baths and showers, though. The owner is very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed our conversations prior to our visit. My family and I definitely enjoyed staying here and will return again!
Nice and beautifully decorated. Picture gives the impression of the beach being close...well it's not that close. Probably better suited for the younger generation and children because of the distance to the beach. Friendly neighbors and convenient to Target for quick needed items. Kitchen was well stocked as we cooked and ate in. People upstairs were noisy and every footstep could clearly be heard( not the owners fault). We saw the dolphins during the early morning hours which was enjoyable. The owner is very nice and communicated often when needed. Overall, the trip was great.
The condo was really nice. Clean and conveniently located near anything you could possibly need. We cooked in for dinner almost every night and that worked out so well. We went out to dinner one night and went to The Lighthouse Restaurant and it was absolutely wonderful! Highly recommended! The walk to the jetty wasnt bad. We measured the walk to the beach and it was about .5 miles. We enjoyed the daily exercise! Having the garage was so nice. Never had to worry about your car. We were all looking forward to riding the bikes around the area and were sad when one had a severe flat tire. Other than that our vacation went smoothly. Even got to watch dolphins in the jetty one morning. I would highly recommend this condo and we will be going back again! Marv is great to deal with and is good about getting back with you with any questions you may have! Loved this condo and our Destin vacation!!
Very happy with the location which was maybe 125-150 yards from the beach. Beach was very nice; was fun to go to the jetty side and see cute fish in the water. Some great snorkeling near the jetty. At the ocean side, which was a longer walk (but not bad) we enjoyed the open oceans and dolphins came close to the beach. Sand was white and water crystal clear.
The condo itself was cozy and comfy. It had plenty of room for two adults and three children. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the unit as we used it a lot. Dishwasher was nice also, as we like to eat in a lot. Great seafood markets close by to get some shrimp or other seafood to cook at condo. Enjoyed morning coffee and breakfast sitting on the deck, which has a nice view of the street and beach.
Our local favorite food found was Stewby's in Fort Walton Beach, had awesome fried fish, shrimp, and fish tacos. Also enjoyed Dewey Destin's seafood. Loved the harbor location and outdoor seating there.
We love the Publix 5-grain bread for sandwiches and toast. Only thing we could not find was fresh orange juice.
The reasons why we did not rate the property five stars was the issues we had twice with someone else parking in our parking spot and a bit of a hassle we had with one of the door locks. Overall this property was a great match for our needs and a good price.
Destin is an idyllic beach community. Located half-way between Panama City and Pensecola, it is known as the 'world's luckiest fishing village.' Destin has large snowbird clubs with some 2,000 members every winter. There are wonderful shopping areas, including large outlet malls, and plentiful affordable restaurants with early bird specials and fresh catches of the day. While Destin is a crowded tourist area in the summer, the pace slows in the winter and the town caters to its winter visitors from the North. Canadians are welcome and will enjoy this beautiful town with its sugar sand beaches and storybook harbor. If you visit once, you'll be one of the many who say Destin is Florida's most beautiful beach.
Other Activities: Deep Sea Fishing
Golf: By joining the Snowbird Club for a small fee (approx $7/year), you can go on golf outings and play nice resort courses for about a third of the regular cost.
