Destin House Rental Photos and Description

Beach Blessing is a comfortable home located in the quiet, upscale neighborhood of Terra Cotta Terrace. You are only one short block away from private access to the beautiful, sugar-white beaches and tranquil waters of the Emerald Coast. This attractively decorated abode is completely furnished with linens, kitchen utensils, appliances, and washer/dryer. It features three bedrooms, two baths, and an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, and private deck.

Come and create some memories!

You will have access to the luxurious amenities of this exclusive community including clubhouse, a swimming pool (heated in winter), sauna, two tennis courts, and a sand volleyball court conveniently situated just a few steps away from your door. No matter what your age, there is something here for everyone; couples, friends, families, small children and the biggest of kids. Year-round events and activities will keep everyone entertained, the young, and the young at heart.

Relax...Dine…Shop…Play…

You are convenient to supermarkets, shopping, and restaurants. Just a few miles down the road is Destin Commons Shopping Complex, which features movie theaters with stadium seating, boutiques, and upscale stores. You are less than ten minutes to the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, which boasts the largest designer outlet mall in the US, with one hundred and four unique stores.

Destin offers a smorgasbord of restaurants to suit any taste and style with some of the finest dining establishments in the world. In fact, several Destin restaurants have been listed in the Top 20 Best Restaurants in Florida. These elegant venues are perfect for hours of wining, dining, and entertainment. But, if oysters on the half shell and ice cold beer are more your style, we've got you covered. No matter what atmosphere you are looking for, you will find it here, from a crab house on the beach to award-winning, five star restaurants: Fine Dining, Casual Dining, Waterfront, Seafood, Steak Houses, Mexican, Italian, Cajun, Fondue, or French cuisine. Whatever you feel like eating today, it’s just a short drive or walk to satisfy your taste and style.

Get away from it all and relax on the sparsely crowded beach and refresh yourself in the cool, inviting waters of the Gulf. Take on the adventures of the many water sports to choose from: deep sea fishing, dolphin encounters, glass-bottom boat tours, sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, surfing, wind surfing, sunset cruises, or collecting shells along the pristine beaches.

You are within minutes of some of the best scenic, championship golf courses in the country. Enjoy the picturesque links of the many courses in the area. Tee times are available for avid and casual golfers alike, whether you want to take in 18 holes, 36, or more.

Family fun can be found at The Track, an action-packed recreation center featuring the ultimate in go-kart tracks, miniature golf, bumper boats, a bungee jumping tower, and an arcade. Kids Kountry, for the younger kids, features a train ride, carousel, Ferris wheel and much more. You can also take the family for a day of fun at the local zoo/wildlife park or the amusement park.

The area is also home to a wide variety of artists and art galleries offering an array of artistic products and styles. A state-of-the-art fine and performing arts complex presents Broadway shows, various touring artists, concerts, theatre and dance productions, and art exhibits. The Arts Center is home to the OWC Fine & Performing Arts Division, the Northwest Florida Symphony Orchestra, and the McIlroy and Holzhauer Galleries.

Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5
Home was lovely, excellent floor plan. We traveled with 4 adults 3 small children, plenty of room in the house. All needed kitchen items available. Very easy access to the beach. If you need chairs, cooler, umbrella, I suggest going through rentgearhere.com, he was also very accomodating. Dropped it off on doorstep and so much cheaper than beach service. We will def be staying here again!!

Good value

  • 3 of 5
Lets start by saying that the home was a good value for the price paid. We would probably return if we were to plan a trip again to Destin. It was as described on the VRBO listing with an exception as detailed below.

Having said this, there were some things that we did not appreciate. First, we thought we would be renting from the owner when we went to VRBO (Vacation Rental By OWNER). Turns out you contact an owner rep who puts you in contact with Southern Resorts. We had no opportunity to negotiate on the price since we wanted to stay an extra week.Generally Southen Resorts is a good and efficient organization. Had good eperiences dealing with them EXCEPT for one problem. The "Heated Pool". We called to ask why the pool was not heated as indicated in the VRBO listing. We don't undertand why a message was left at our home in Canada, when we were staying in Destin. We did not get a callback at the rental property. Further, the male individual that left the message claims "he went to the website and nowhere does it state that the pool is heated". NOT TRUE. As I write this review, I went to the VRBO website for Beach Blessings and guess what. It states that "You will have access to the luxurious amenities of this exclusive community including clubhouse, a swimming pool (heated in winter)". Why would he say that we were wrong? Funny how the next day we saw a heating contractor working on the pool mechanics.

Other minor issues were; Shower in master bedroom leaked water onto the bathroom floor (I purchased some silicone caulking and sealed the shower trac, no more leak), toilet plugged on 6 occasions, Couch very uncomfortable (Should invest in new living room furniture). PVR in the living room does not allow you to record. Turns out you have to pay the cable company to be able to record programs. Why would you buy a PVR when you did not subscribe to the feature?

Asside from the above, we were pleased with the home. We would recommend it only on the condition that more comfortable furniture be provided in the living room.

We really enjoyed our time at this place. The house seemed bigger than it was listed for and it's just a short walk to the pool and beach. It is also just a short drive to anything you need. For the price and location it will be hard to find much that beats this deal. Thanks!

We love it!! Can't say anything but nice things about the home, the location and the homeowners, very accomodating! We have stayed on two different occasions and have enjoyed them both. The changes and upgrades have made an already awesome vacation home just all the more better. Thank you for sharing your Terra Cotta home with us. We will be back!!!!!!

Wonderful home! Open plan and all on one level. Clean and comfortable. Convenient to the pool and the beach while private and free of traffic. Close to stores and restaurants in the heart of Destin. We loved it!
