GORGEOUS LUXURY HOME WITH SALTWATER POOL

Destin Pointe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

Island Blue is a 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath (sleeps 11) luxurious home that has been professionally decorated and just promotes relaxing. It has 4 huge porches with views of the East Pass, Destin Harbor and a glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico. There is a private salt water pool with a lanai area when you can hang out in the shade. Along the side of the house there is a gas grill and hammock as well as an outdoor shower. (Please see the link to our web site with additional photos and info just under the calendar below.)

The main living area is very spacious with seating for 12. There is a stereo system that allows you to plug in your iPod and enjoy your favorite music by the pool and in the main living area. The kitchen has everything you would need to put together and serve a gourmet meal. There is an extra ice maker in the laundry room so you will always have ice for your beach cooler.

The Master Suite and Guest Suite both have king beds and private bathrooms with access to a large porch. There is a 'boys' room with a queen bed and its own bath room across the hall. The 'girls' room has a total of 5 single beds (bunk bed, day bed and two trundle beds). It has a beautiful porch with a bench swing and view of the East Pass and the Lake Caroline across the street. There are two Rinnai tank less hot water heaters so you will never run out of water while everyone take a shower after a day at the beach. Every bedroom has it's own TV.

The neighborhood, Destin Pointe, is a private gated community with 24x7 security guards. There are two lakes on the property, tennis courts (85 yards away) and two community pools. It is a short walk to the Gulf beach (~450 yards) and even shorter to the East Pass beach (~250 yards) where you can snorkel or pull up your jet ski; or you can make a phone call and a neighborhood shuttle service will pick you up and drop you off where needed (9-5 everyday).

My wife Rhonda and I live in Atlanta and have been visiting the Destin beaches for years and years. We fell in love with Destin Pointe due to its island location with easy access to the Gulf, the East Pass and snorkeling and the Destin Harbor.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

It is so nice to be on the island. 98 can be so crowded but we can just cross 98 at Gulf Shore Drive to get to Target or the Winn Dixie and we can have everything we need to go back and enjoy a nice quiet island get away. There are two lakes in Destin Pointe and bird watching is always interesting. The jetties along the East Pass are a great spot for fishing. If nothing else, you can sit and watch the fishing boats come and go through the East Pass all day. Watching the sun set over the water at the East pass is also a nice thing to do.

Our home has a very private courtyard with a saltwater pool in the back. The home is decorated to the 9's and has the ability to connect a computer or iPod to play music throughout the main living are and by the pool. The side beach (by the East Pass) is a short walk away and is always 'calmer' than the Gulf. It is also the location when the snorkeling cruises bring people to snorkel. There are two community pools (one heated) and a hot tub. There are also two lighted tennis courts (85 yards from the house). Although it is only a short walk to the front beach (Gulf) of the side beach (East Pass), there is a shuttle that will pick you up and drop you off where you want. In season, every Thursday night, you can watch the fireworks sponsored by The City of Destin from the porch. The neighborhood is private, gated and has 24x7 security.

This is exactly what you're looking for! Beautiful house with every accomidation that you could want. The house is so beautifully decorated it is like staying at a luxurious hotel for a week. There is so many things to list that are great about this house I don't know where to start, between the location to beach.. just around the corner. To the private pool and porches... heated pool and perfect for just laying out and relaxing. The comfort of a gated community! Not to mention the owners who are just the sweetest people and very accomidating. We are already planning our trip back!

What a fantastic house. Everything was perfect and absolutely beautiful. House come with everything you need.... and love the fact that the pool is heated (lifesaver for the overcast days). Owners were even thoughtful enough to check on us during our stay to see if there was anything we needed. We will definitely rent this home again!!!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
Our family vacation was perfect because of this beautiful home and location. The owners are very helpful and genuinely concerned about your comfort! The pictures do not do this home justice as it is gorgeous! We felt like we were in our very own (large!) Ritz Carlton! Tasteful decorations and soothing beach atmosphere....the pool in the back is secluded and just right after a day at the beach. I have 5 kids and even I felt like I had my space and peace and quiet in this spacious home! We are a large Italian family and cooking is our life, so we loved the open kitchen/great room combo....allowed us to cook and enjoy time with our family at the same time. Recommend highly! Beaches were beautiful!! NO OIL IN DESTIN AT ALL! Sugar white sand and green/blue water that reminds you of the Caribbean.

Recommend walking to the cove (property borders East Pass in Destin) and snorkeling (go when the snorkel cruises are not there!), eating at Dewey Destin's, Commander's Palace, Lucky Snapper. Walk the Harborwalk and see all the deep seas boats come in with their catch. Rent a pontoon boat and go over to Crab Island. Don't miss the sunset on the cove/East Pass each night! We rented bikes (there is a shop on your left as you proceed down Gulf Coast Dr into Destin Pointe) for the week and enjoyed riding on the property Holiday Isle for exercise each day. We always bring our fishing poles and our boys caught lots of fish off the rocks at the pass and in the cove. Get frozen squid from the Texaco at the corner, this bait was by far what the fish were biting!

I have rented on Holiday Isle with my family since the 1970's and have experienced it all. By far this home is one of the loveliest I have ever had the pleasure of renting. The space is well thought out and owners have a great set up for entry/exit so you don't worry about losing keys (a concern with 5 kids, 4 of which are college age or teenagers!). Having a garage was a plus--no hot car!

We had one minor question for the owner shortly after arrival and she quickly contacted us and answered the question. Top notch!

We will definitely rent from this owner again and highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Destin!
