The Lonestar Sandcastle -

This beautiful 5 bedroom home is perfectly nestled in Holiday Isle, a portion of Down Town Destin. With the beach being just a short walk from the home you are just minutes from putting your toes in the Sugary White Sands of Destin's beaches.

Upon entering the home you will find that the staircase leads you up to the main living area of the home (on the 2nd floor). You will see that the large and open floor plan offers plenty of space for the whole family. The living area offers two large sofas and a couple of chairs that overlook the balcony and offers spectacular views of the tropical community that you will be residing in. You will notice that you have both a breakfast nook and a second dining area. These two dining areas will seat a total of twelve lucky guests. The larger of the two dining tables has easy access to the large and open kitchen. The kitchen features a long and beautiful granite counter-top as well as a large island in the middle. It also features stainless steel appliances. The main level (2nd floor) also has a king bedroom that shares a hallway bathroom with a bedroom containing Queen Over Twin Bunk with a slide out Trundle bed beneath.

As you continue upstairs you will find three more bedrooms all of which have King Size beds. The Master Bedroom is located on this level and features views of the Gulf of Mexico. Each of the bedrooms have their own private bathrooms. The laundry room is also located on the third floor.

Holiday Isle:

A peninsula located south of the Destin Harbor, Holiday Isle parallels Downtown Destin. This community is a private water-surrounded oasis that is just seconds from all the excitement imaginable, and yet manages to maintain an ideal laid back communal ambiance.

Absolutely beautifully decorated and stocked beach home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 loved staying at the Lonestar Sandcastle. The porch spaces with views were perfect for lounging in the morning with coffee or the evening with a glass of wine.

We were close to the beach and pools and all our favorite restaurants in Destin.

The kitchen had everything if you were in the mood to stay in and the icemaker was a perfect addition to the space!

Have ! mentioned the beds and showers? Heavenly! We will be back!!!

Family vacation 2018

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Very spacious for 8 adults and 3 children. Loved the porches off of the living room and bedrooms. Access to a washer and dryer was very helpful. Our favorite space was the large kitchen. It was stocked with everything we needed and more. Bathrooms were dreamy. The master bath was spacious. Easy walk to pools and especially the beach. Tram driver was friendly as was the man helping with garbage. Nice neighborhood for riding bikes. Easy access to water taxi to get to Margarettaville, etc. The house was current and beautifully decorated. It met all our wants and needs. The pictures matched what we experienced in real life. Could stay at this house over and over again!

The House was beautiful with all the amenities. We really had a good time.

Very nice and we enjoyed the home and location. Wish the elevator had been working because I have knee and hip replacements and that would have been a great bonus. Would stay again.

Beautiful home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and well equipped. We had one minor maintenance issue that was quickly resolved. Great location. Short walk to the beach or pool with a convenient tram service for when you're feeling lazy or have too much stuff to carry. Would definitely stay here again!

This house is perfect for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at the Lonestar Sandcastle so very much! The house is absolutely gorgeous, new, well appointed with the most tasteful decor and the sandcastle theme for the owners is so charming. Blown up photos of their sandcastle creations over the years of vacationing in Destin not only made great art but inspired us to create our own (except we weren't so vigilant and made a giant turtle instead). The views from the porches, especially from the master bedroom, were perfect. We were in a gated community with two pools and it was so quiet and serene yet close to all the action in the Destin harbor. We could see the ocean in two directions from the house and the pool was a two minute walk just before the beach as well. The kitchen was amazing...we cooked meals nearly every night and it was a fun family activity with all the room we had and the great appliances and furnishings. My husband and I had our three daughters, their husbands, and four grandkids in the house for a total of 12 of us and we had plenty of room. The three upstairs bedrooms had their own bathrooms; the master was magnificent! Everyone had a porch to sit and enjoy the views and sunsets. Beds were comfy. It was so clean. We hope to stay in this very house on a future vacation!!

Bachelor Party

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed here for a bachelor party. It's close to the beach, the bars, and everything else you want do in Destin, but the neighborhood is secluded from the craziness that sometimes is associated with Destin.

The house itself is beautiful. The views from the porch are amazing; the perfect way to wake up in the morning. Each room was well-maintained and the kitchen/bar has everything you would need on vacation. There community also has a nice pool and hot tub.

I would definitely recommend staying here. Everyone in my group loved the house, the location, and Destin.
