We fell in Love with Destin many years ago, we started coming here for business and decided to work here in the real estate industry. We brought our children from the time they were babies and would stay for the entire summer enjoying all that Destin has to offer. We have had tons of family and friends over the years. We bought this home after hurricane opal and have renovated every inch of it. Now our children are in college and we don't utilize this house the way we did for many years, so we decided to share this great home with some other families to allow them to have some great Destin vacations and memories as we have!
Sally purchased this house in 1994
Destin is a great vacation destination, we love the fishing and boating, playing at crab island and watching the dolphins play. Everytime I go to the beach and see this gorgeous green water with the sparkling sugar sand the beauty of it overwhelms me. This home is really spectacular with the short walk to the beach and the conveineince of having your water vessel at your disposal anytime you feel like jumping onboard! Here you also have the peacefulness of a quiet neighborhood to enjoy a good book or just watching the boats,fish and other wildlife swim or fly by! You really have the best of both worlds, something for everyone in one location!
This is an amazing home with over 3600 square feet of living space and 2000 square feet of decking, which 600 feet of the deck is enclosed, a nice yard beautfully lanscaped, with large bedrooms and spacious family areas. It is recently renovated and is very clean and updated. The large covered deck is very unique and is a great party room! It has a bar, cooktop and seating overlooking the canal right on this deck.
We had planned a destination wedding and lucked upon this home. We are from Dallas, Tx so we did not have a chance to see this house first hand before committing to it. Going solely off of the pictures online and the fact that this house has an attached boat house and lawn capable of holding 50 people, we went head first into planning our big day. This house supplied us with plenty of room to accommodate our huge family and gave plenty of room for the kids to run around. The distance to the beach was about a 5 minute walk and the atmosphere at night around the dock was amazing once the lights were set up.
All in all, everything was pretty much as described to us and through all the chaos that comes with planning a wedding, we are able to consider it a success and a day we will always remember.
For those going to Destin and wish to get in the water, I would recommend going earlier in the summer when the water is much clearer and the waves are less choppy.
After staying at this palatial home with my crew and guests, I would not stay anywhere else. This home housed my entire crew and guests with our boat right outside for the perfect stay and shoot. We had 12 people staying in the home and we still had all of the privacy we wanted due to the layout of the home, with 6 bedrooms and a completely secluded top floor. When coupled the with the private catering for 12 on the lawn.....it just clinched the deal. Wow! Thanks so much for having us....we cant wait to come back. Bass 2 Billfsih
This property lived up to the pictures and descriptions. The size and layout is outstanding and the furnishings are current and quite comfortable. Great for allowing different family members to do their own activities and not be on top of each other - we even baked a surprise birthday cake in the upstairs apartment. We had a great time and even had plenty to do on rainy days with the canal and very large deck. My mother and children were in heaven as they could throw a poles in the water in one moment and walk to the beach in the next. Our first time in Destin, but certainly will be at the top of my list when we go back.
Our group (19) stayed here in April for our annual Birthday Beach/Reunion trip and thrilled at what a great location and house/apartment this is. This property is nicely and warmly decorated in addition to being very spacious. The owner was really accommodating when it came to any needs we had.
We wanted a place away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Destin, but still close enough to enjoy all its activities. We definitely lucked out with this rental property being right on the canal – a short water taxi or kayak paddle across the canals! We loved the quiet neighborhood and amazing deck/enclosed patio.
The owner was extremely quick and responsive to our emails, phone calls, and text. We would definitely suggest this place for a large group. As an added bonus we were able to rent their pontoon for a visit to Crab Island!
Our family selected “the heart of Destin” home after several weeks of searching for the perfect home for lodging and entertaining for a very special occasion. The canal home was actually the first home we looked at and it set the standard. We found some beautiful places, but none compare to “the heart of Destin” and all it has to offer. The main house’s living area is huge and open, overlooking the boathouse and canal, with a very large kitchen. The bedrooms are large and beds comfortable. The upstairs apartment is such a bonus for separating those who are early to bed and early to rise from those of us who …are not! Although the home sleeps 22+ we chose to go smaller with only 12 in our party in order to give the bride and groom-to-be a quiet retreat from the crowds and activities of a busy wedding weekend…well, except for the BRUNCH held in their honor AT the canal home, oh, and yes, the REHEARSAL DINNER was there, too! So much for getting away from the crowd, but there was lots of room and it never seemed crowed! Our guests were so complimentary of the home and grounds. Both events were held outdoors but had the weather not been beautiful the screened boat house would have been perfect for both. The late-morning brunch was lovely in the beautifully landscaped tropical backyard overlooking the canal, and the dinner was absolutely magical and unforgettable in that same setting at night! Sally was very helpful from start to finish – she even mailed my grandson’s left-behind football to us! Sally also recommended a brilliant guitarist to play at the dinner. Chris Alvarado was the perfect addition to make this very special occasion even more memorable. The wedding weekend was fabulous, exceptional, delightful and fun! Mission accomplished. Thanks for everything Sally!
We had a great time in Destin. The house was absolutely fantastic. So glad we rented it, will definitely be back. We put 22 people in the house and had room to spare. The outdoor area really gives a lot of extra usable space. Tom and Sally were great to deal with and the house was in great overall condition. A perfect location, just a short walk to the beach. Having the boat accessible to rent is a great addition to a wonderful rental. The bedrooms were all huge, with real beds. Most rentals are filled with twins and bunks, this house is full of King and Queen beds. Having the extra kitchen upstairs was also very nice. Thanks Sally for a wonderful time, we will be back!
This home is great because it is on the salt water canal that you can fish, swim, snorkle, kayak, boat, canoe and totally enjoy! You also have a large yard for family backyard games! We also have a boat and golf cart available for you to rent!
