Our Magnolia House unit #306 is located on an upper floor offering a wonderful view of the beach, Gulf and East Pass. This condo has been recently up-dated and is tastefully furnished in a beach style décor. After all - you're at the beach!

This is the best beach in the U.S! We've been active real estate brokers in both New Orleans and Destin for over 20 years. During that time we've had the opportunity to explore the Florida coast and have owned a number of other properties in Destin.

If you trust our experience - you won't go wrong. Destin Pointe on Holiday Isle is the greatest location in the area. Visit here and you're sure to come back!

John & Sharon Kochera - Kenner LA

We've seen and explored just about all of Destin over the years. In our opinion, nothing else seems to rival this very special island neighborhood.

Awesome views from your unit and balcony, 3000 feet of pristine white sand, gated with 24 hour security, loads of amenities, and within just minutes of major shopping, family activities, deep sea fishing, championship golf and top restaurants. Need we say more?

GREAT CONDO AND STAY FOR JULY 4TH WEEK!

  • 5 of 5
We spent June 28- July 5th in this condo. I can say this was an absolute perfect week weather included. We were a couple along with my 79 Year old mom. The condo provided everything and more than we needed. Air conditioning worked great. Pool was nice. The tram service to the beach was wonderful. Travis the tram driver was a great pleasure to visit with each day and I miss our chats with him. The complimentary beach service was great too! Beach service gladly accommodated our request for umbrella and chairs to be placed behind main row and close to board walk to allow my mom a short walking distance. On Saturday and Sunday there was even an ice cream vendor walking the beach and yes it was frozen rock solid. I had to give it a try. Thursday and Friday provided for watching fireworks right from the condo balcony as if we had our own private show. Breakfast on the patio watching the fishing boats going out for the day was our daily routine. The Lania (sp?) was great when coming in from a day at the beach for being able to drop your things without tracking sand through the condo. We met many families who had been staying at Destin Pointe for 15+ years. This says a lot! The owners John and Sharon were a pleasure to work with from booking to return. We will definitely keep this condo and the Destin Pointe community on our short list of Gulf destinations.

WONDERFUL BEACH TRIP!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I came to the beach for a much needed getaway. This condo was perfect for the 2 of us. I had stayed in this set of condos in another unit years ago and loved this area. You can see the bay as well as the ocean and the bayside has a great place to snorkel. The condo was clean and the bed extremely comfortable. We both agreed we could live in this condo if it was just the two of us. We will be back again in the future. And John the owner is great to work with!

Our eight day stay was rendered perfect by the beautifully furnished and exquisitely decorated condo. Everything was just as the owner represented it to be, view and all. Definitely will consider if we return to Destin Pointe.

RELAXING, GREAT VIEW, AND AFFORDABLE!

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this unit at Magnolia House in Destin Point to attend a wedding and extended weekend. The unit was very clean, looks like new tiles throughout. The view was great and a short walk to the beach. We would stay again for another extended weekend.

TORN ON THE 3 STAR RATING

  • 3 of 5
I want to clarify that if my review was for the owner or just the complex I would be giving a 5 star review. However, because the review is also for the unit we stayed in, I can only give it 3 stars.
Starting with the good:
Communication with the owner was great. From the first email through calling him only days before our arrival date, John was nothing but a pleasure to deal with. Destin Pointe as a whole was VERY nice. The swimming pool by the beach access has been renovated and is much nicer than the pool that is directly behind the Magnolia House. There is a tram on site that operates daily between 10:00am and 6:00pm. During those hours, it is very convenient to use; however, it would be nice if it started a little earlier. Destin Pointe is also in a great location. Only a few minutes from the busy highway, it is far enough away to miss all the traffic but still close enough to be convenient. The grounds are well kept and it was nice to have a "guard" checking for parking passes as vehicles entered.
The not so good:
We knew from the pictures of the unit that it wasn't really "up-dated" as provided in the description. If by "up-dated" you think of more 1990's decor than sure. But otherwise, I definitely wouldn't describe it as up-dated. The kitchen appeared to be the original from when the unit was built so it also had not been up-dated. Again, we knew that from the pictures but just want to stress that for future guests.
The bad:
This unit was DIRTY; and not the dirty like it hadn't been cleaned. I mean the carpets were GROSS and need replaced. We could physically see the black wear path on the carpet in the living room. This of course was after we let our 11 month girl crawl around after being the car for 16+ hours. When we picked her up after only 10 minuntes, the knees on her pants were black from the dirt. Again, this was after 10 mintues! This also applied to our feet when walking barefoot. Look at the bottom of your feet after walking barefoot in this unit and they will be filthy. I had read previous reviews that the unit was not "child friendly" due to the decor. I don't agree with that. The unit was fine if you keep an eye on your little ones. But after seeing the condition of the carpet I would say it is not child friendly due to the cleanliness.

We will stay at this complex again but NOT in this unit. For only $10/day more, there are truly renovated units in this complex. We will be using one of those next!

Owner's Response: It sounds as though your major issue, the carpet was just one call away from being corrected. Had you brought it to my attention, I would have been happy to have the carpet "dry cleaned". This is a procedure used during the peak guest season. It could have been scheduled when you and your family were away so as not to inconvenience you, and I feel certain it would have satisfied your needs. The problem is - you didn't call me so I couldn't know that you were disatisfied.
We both know that no expense has been saved to up-date this unit, from the new linens & towels to the new kitchen appliances and new flat screen electronics.
Our cabinets, in use by most owners in the building were made of quality materials, still function well and are aesthetically pleasing to most.
I'm sorry for your disappointment, but a complaint after your visit certainly doesn't give us the opportunity to make it right.
