Villa Champagne is a 3 bedroom penthouse condominium home located in the Destin Towers Resort. Destin Towers is right on the Gulf of Mexico, ideally located in the heart of the City of Destin. Villa Champagne offer fabulous views, plenty of space, AND comes recommended by Southern Living Magazine.

Enjoy a family vacation in this huge (1950 sq ft + over 500+ sq ft of balcony), $ million+ 15th floor penthouse, with 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 3 balconies and great room with Gulf views from every window. Destin Towers, chosen in 2007 by Southern Living Magazine as a 'TOP PICK' Destin family condo, is on the Destin beach and direct Gulf-front. Interior features include 9 foot smooth ceilings; crown molding; tile and bamboo floors; gourmet kitchen with island, wet bar, Silestone counter and bar tops, and stainless steel appliances; and a spa-quality master suite with luxury walk-in shower (see photos), 3 shower heads plus 4 body sprays. Destin Towers is near attractions, shopping, fine restaurants, and right on the sugar-white sands of Destin beach, the perfect place to watch the dolphins frolic.

NEW 37' High Definition TV with Hi Def Cable Channels in Living Room. Flat-screen Hi Definition TVs with DVD players in all three bedrooms.

Interior and Security: There are queen size beds in the second and third bedroom, and three full baths. The second bedroom is, in effect, a second master suite with access to its own full bath. The great room love seat is a full size sleeper, and an additional roll-away single twin bed is also included, most suitable for a child.

This condominium has all the comforts of home. Tastefully decorated, Villa Champagne offers more than 1950 square feet of living space, so you will be able to enjoy your time indoors as much as your time on the beach.

Destin Towers is a gated resort, with modern electronic security at all accesses (even the beach gate), so you will feel safe and secure during your relaxing stay.

Travel Channel Viewers have just voted Destin as the 'Best Family Beach 2013' In Travel Channel’s online poll for the Best Family Beach of 2013, the Destin area received 43 percent of the votes cast for the best beach destination for a family. Also in the running were the Outer Banks, N.C., Paradise Island in the Bahamas and Cape Cod, Mass. “This didn’t just happen,” said Dan O’Byrne, director of Okaloosa County’s tourist development department. “The focus on the family is in our DNA. Our attributes are self- evident from our accommodations, our beaches, our people. We’ve been the family vacation spot for decades.

Southern Living magazines recommends Destin Towers: The April 2007 edition of Southern Living Magazine contains a feature article on vacationing in Destin called the 'Destin Family Beach Guide.' You can go to Southern Living on line, and search Destin to find the Southern Living Destin Family Beach Guide Slide Show. The feature includes information on lodging, activities, restaurants, and shopping. The authors conclude that when vacationing in Destin, renting a condo is the way to go, but choosing a condo can be tricky. To assist the reader, the authors list their top picks in the 'Condo Favorites' section of the article, and name Destin Towers as one of the top picks, noting that after a few days at Destin Towers, you will feel more like a resident than a visitor.

Beach and beach services: Beach service is available from March - November at very reasonable daily or weekly rates. Destin Towers is a low density condominium and owns the Gulf-front beach. There are only 45 units in Destin Towers, and only about half of them are available for rental, so the common areas are uncrowded, and you won't have to jostle to get that 'front row' beach spot. Also, with two elevators, you won't be wasting valuable vacation time waiting for an elevator.

This is a non-smoking condominium. No pets are allowed. Minimum age for renters is 25 years old.

Destin wins Travel Channel's Best Family Beach 2013: 'Focus on the family is in our DNA'

Published: Friday, March 8, 2013 at 13:56 PM.

DESTIN — What Emerald Coast residents have known for years has been confirmed with the Travel Channel’s online poll for the Best Family Beach of 2013.

The Destin area received 43 percent of the votes cast for the best beach destination for a family. Also in the running were the Outer Banks, N.C., Paradise Island in the Bahamas and Cape Cod, Mass.

“This didn’t just happen,” said Dan O’Byrne, director of Okaloosa County’s tourist development department. “The focus on the family is in our DNA. Our attributes are self- evident from our accommodations, our beaches, our people. We’ve been the family vacation spot for decades.

Once you spend any time visiting Destin, you yearn to own a piece of its beauty. We were looking for a property in 2004, but were very frustrated. Then our realtor discovered that the contract to purchase this Penthouse unit, now called Villa Champagne, had fallen through. When we first saw the unit, we decided to buy this beautiful condo, right on the Gulf of Mexico, with TWO balconies facing the beautiful Destin beach and the Gulf.

This is a Penthouse unit, with 9 foot ceilings, a spacious kitchen, and plenty of space for everyone. Destin Towers could not be in a more convenient, central location. Destin Towers is one of the very few condominiums located directly on the beach and Gulf, yet also located on the main thoroughfare in Destin, Highway 98 East (also known as Emerald Coast Parkway). However, it is set far away from the main highway by a lengthy driveway (300+ yards). Destin Towers is a low-density condo complex with a large beach, meaning you will have plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the Destin beach. There is nothing except our beautiful pool and spa between you and Destin Towers private beach walkover.

Villa Champagne is located on the 15th floor, offering sweeping and panoramic views of the Destin Beach and Gulf from the two large Gulf-front balconies. On the Penthouse levels, there are only two units per floor for maximum privacy. The floor plan was brilliantly designed, giving the feel of a home, not the long 'corridor' style seen in many other beach condos.

Villa Champagne has been tastefully decorated in keeping with the high level of luxury and prestige fitting for a beach-front penthouse.

We have been coming to the Destin/Navarre beach areas for our family vacations for many years. This was the first time we stayed at this particular condo, and it will not be the last. We have stayed at many different places over the years, and I can honestly say that this is one of THE BEST condos in Destin. The decor and floor plan are perfect. It has a very cozy feel and was CLEAN. We stayed at a brand new large condo last year that was filthy so we were very pleased with the cleanliness of this unit. The view is amazing, and the check-in/check-out process is so easy. The owners of this unit were wonderful to work with and made themselves available at all times if anything was needed. THANK YOU so much for sharing your beautiful condo with us and we are looking forward to our next vacation at the Villa Champagne. The only bad thing about this trip was having to leave, and I am still trying to figure out a way to put a shower like the one in the Master bedroom in my own bathroom at home.

Owner's Response: Charles and Jessica were our guests from May 20 - 27, 2007. The shower in the master bedroom really is fantastic. We are so pleased to hear that Charles and Jessica had a wonderful stay at Villa Champagne!

Well what can I say this place is awesome. This was our first trip to Destin. We usually go to Sarasota every year but I think we have found our new destination. As long as we can stay in this penthouse. There was so many things to do. We had our 4 girls with us ages 13,13,5,3 and they all had a blast. The first day we got there we just left everything in the truck and went up to check the penthouse out and believe me its awsome the pictures do not do it justice. We went out on the balcony and the water was crystal clear. We got to go on the glassbottom boat while we were there and it was great. The food there is fresh and great. There is a huge waterpark right across the street even though it wasn't open for the season yet I could tell the next time we come down that is where we will be a few days. The beaches are awsome there and you have everything within a few miles. Wal-mart,Target Bass Pro Shop (HUGE), Wings beachstore right next door. The only thing that my wife and I hated about this place is that it is not OURS. Yes Gerry & Diane my wife and I envy you. haha. Anyway thank you all sooooooo much and we will be getting back to you soon we want to come back this year. I will leave with this comment if you are looking at this place and reading this comment then just stop looking because take it from a family that just got back you will not find anything any nicer or located better anywhere in Destin. Gerry & Diane thank you all sooooo much and we will be back sooooon.

Thanks Tim & Lynn Reed & girls (Kaylan,Megan,Taylor, & Timberlee)
Thanks Gerry & Diane.
Owner's Response: The Reeds were one of our very first guests at Villa Champagne from March 28 - April 6, 2007. Diane and I are very gratified to receive this as our first guest comment.
