About YAMS Destin

We are a recently retired military family. We met in Destin 24 years ago when we were both on active duty in the United States Air Force. One of us is from Wisconsin and the other Massachusetts. The military has had us living all over the country but of all the places we've been, Destin is our favorite. It could be because we met there...or maybe because our first child was born there - or maybe its just the beauty of the place! Once all of our children graduate from high school, we plan to make Destin our home.

VRBO|HomeAway: Destin Florida Vacation Rental Beachfront

YAMS Destin purchased this townhome in 2013

Why YAMS Destin chose Destin

We picked this property because we step off our deck onto the beach.

It is a great Destin Vacation Rental property!

What makes this townhome unique

We are gulf front! We have a private beach that we share with 9 other units. There is nothing quite like sitting on your porch during a beautiful sunny day or a stormy rainy day and just watching the ocean. Sometimes you get blessed and see dolphins playing in the water...sometimes you just enjoy the sun rise and sun set.

We love it here and know you will too!

We've tried to make 'You Are My Sunshine' a place we love to stay. We've added new bedding, decor, and other conveniences. We plan to keep improving and updating the furnishings on an on-going basis.

The Perfect Beach Vacation In Florida!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect Florida beach vacation destination, look no further! You Are My Sunshine in Destin has everything you could ever want and more. During the booking process, the owner was very helpful in answering all my questions. The townhouse was easy to locate and exceeded all our expectations. It has everything you and your family could need. Everything in the home (beds, sofas, lounge chairs) is clean and comfortable. It’s like you’re visiting the home of a friend. The kitchen is well-appointed with all the little extras you might need. We often had breakfast at home so we could eat and enjoy our morning coffee on the balcony. This was our favorite thing to do because perhaps the most spectacular part about this townhouse is the amazing view! Pictures really can’t do it justice. I often found myself mesmerized as I was staring at the ocean. The sunlight glitters on the crystal clear water like diamonds. I’m not exaggerating! That is truly the best way to describe it. Also, from this point on the beach, you can see both the sunrise and the sunset. Spectacular! The beach is wide and the sand is like sugar so it was really nice to take long walks each day. If you can pull yourself away from the beach, there is also an outlet mall and many other shops and restaurants nearby (including a great coffee shop just a two-minute walk away). I’m so grateful that the owners are willing to share their lovely home with us and we’ll definitely be back!

Amazing beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at You Are My Sunshine in Destin Florida.

The view was just like the photos - beautiful water and beach. The view alone is worth staying here.

This townhome was clean and comfortable and a great vacation choice for us.


Decor: I really liked the décor - the color of the walls was peaceful - not the tacky "beach" colors you see in some place. The floors were beautiful - no carpet at all.

Beds: Everyone had a comfortable bed with great bed linens.

Location: This place is near everything - coffee shop, DQ, gas station, Outlet malls, grocery stores and lots of places to eat. You can walk to a many of these places.

Cons: We had to leave....

Some rentals you stay at have no "amenities" - this place had everything plus some. Starter rolls of paper goods, condiments, soaps, tissues....And I really liked that the kitchen cabinets were labeled...

The little touches here are evident of owners that care. The owners try to make this place feel like home and they succeeded. I'd come back here next week if I could!

I highly recommend this townhome - you won't be disappointed.

Most amazing beach house EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our time here! It was a truly a bit of heaven on earth. The owners are so easy to work with and you can see they really care about making your trip the best it can be. The extra touches like a power strip by the bed to charge all your devices make this feel more like your home away from home. The property is wonderfully decorated with a clean modern design that was perfect for a beach house. It was impeccably clean and I am hard to please in this area! As a family with several allergy sufferers we found this property to be and very allergy friendly. The beds and sheets were both very comfortable. The views were AH-MAZING!!! The views from all the bedrooms, balconies, living areas and even the kitchen of the stunning emerald green water and white sugar sand are something we will never forget. We saw a large pod of about 20 dolphins right off the shore. Once you step off the deck you are right on the powder soft sand and set for a day of fun in the sun. We were pleasantly surprised at how few of other beach goers were there over a holiday weekend. it was like having a private beach! The location of the condo was perfect. Everything we needed was close with out feeling like city life was right on top of us. We could be as active as we wanted to be with an equipment rental office just a few doors down. The Whale's Tale was an easy two minute walk and was very convenient when we wanted to eat out, everyone loved their breakfast. After a long day in the sun, the kids enjoyed getting ice cream at the nearby Dairy Queen. Great shopping is about a mile away but honestly we never wanted to leave. We spent time on the beach even after dark. The kids loved getting out flashlights and looking for little white sand crabs and the beach had a perfect view of the Destin fireworks with out all the crowds. The worst part of our stay was packing up and leaving but we will be back for another little piece of paradise.

The BEST Family Vacation !!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to say Thank you for allowing us to stay in you beach front property for our family vacation. My mom and her husband have been to various beaches around the world and had stated that Destin had the whitest beaches and clear waters. I, my wife, my children, and my mom and her husband had been discussing this vacation for over a year. We were more than surprised when we entered the condo. My kids right away found there rooms, I and my wife picked the bedroom with the most amazing view we could ever imagine. And my mom and her husband picked the upstairs bedroom with the view of the ocean. This was the first time my kids had seen an ocean or beach and I think they are going to be disappointed if we ever decide to go somewhere other than Destin. I would recommend this property for anyone looking to do a family vacation. The property was well stocked for our week long stay, it was immaculately clean. The best judge of this property would have to be my kids because they have asked over and over again since the end of our vacation "when can we go back" I would hope that when we do plan another family vacation (and we will) I would hope that this condo would be available for us to enjoy again. If you asked me to rate the owners, I would rate them (10+) if you asked me to rate the property, I would also rate it (10+)

Great home and beach

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful week relaxing at the beach in YAMS townhome. There were 8 of us, 4 kids 9 and under. There was plenty of room for all of us. The owner is very thorough and everything was as described and pictured. We especially appreciated how very clean the townhome was. We also loved stepping directly into the beach from the back deck. It was so easy to take a break from all of our playing and eat lunch on the deck. The townhome is not far from beach rentals like paddle boards, jet skis, and inflatables. Our kids had a blast! The owner even arranged for a baby-sitter for us and we had adult night out! We have zero complaints!
