An amazing family beach vacation
This house is directly on the beach. On the beach. You are literally on the sand. You can sit on the terrace and watch your grandchildren playing in the water. You are so close you can see fish and crabs in the water. The sand is white like sugar. The house itself is fabulous. 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. 4 adult bedrooms and a kids room with 2 sets of bunk beds. The layout of the house is very good with everyone having enough space but not cramped when everyone comes together at meals. There is even a beach service that sets up chairs and umbellas for you each morning. You feel so spoiled. We very much recommend The Diamond of Destiny. You family will love it.
Amazing location - beautiful beach, comfortable house, fun activities
This beach house is in an amazing location. The views are breathtaking. The beach sand is so white, it almost looks like snow, and it’s clean and well maintained. The beach is private and so not crowded. The water was so clear we could stand on the deck and easily see schools of fish and manta rays swimming along in the surf. We sat on the deck and watched Dolphins swim by every morning as we ate breakfast. The kids played for hours in the beautiful sand. There are lots of fun activities nearby. The kids and adults both had a blast and made great memories. This is one of our favorite beach locations now. We’ll definitely be back.
Great house. Great neighborhood. Great town.
Diamond of Destiny. Destiny by the Sea. Destin Florida !!!
Wonderful Week, Amazing Location, Beautiful House!
We had a great week in Destin, what a beautiful home in an amazing location! The view and access to the beach was breathtaking, and the convenience and proximity to the pool was awesome! We traveled with a large group (13), and the house was a perfect balance and space for together time and quiet time alone if desired. The owner was very responsive, which was appreciated when we had a self inflicted question/minor issue.
Can't say enough about the ease of staying in a gated community, and the convenience of not having to negotiate traffic getting to the beach or having to lug around all the gear. It's literally all in the back of the house at your fingertips and make what is a very busy town at a very busy time of the year seem quiet and peaceful. Look forward to visiting again should we find ourselves in Destin!
A Wonderful Experience at the Diamond of Destiny
Our extended family had a wonderful trip to Destin and a fabulous time at the Diamond of Destiny. It was winter on the beach. Temperatures in the 70's and a great house to stay in. 5 bedrooms and 5 baths on the surgery white beach of Destin. We had 14 in our group and everyone had their own space and we ate all our meals together. What can you say ? It's Destin and we made the most of it and we will definitely stay at this home again.
Family Vacation 2016
Our Family has been visiting Destin for the past 25 years. We have stayed in many homes. Diamond of Destiny in Destiny of the Sea is hands down our favorite thus far. We have pets so the gated community with little traffic made it safer to walk our pets. Quiet neighborhood with enhanced security. We felt very safe and comfortable during our stay. Clean home with beautiful views and large enough for privacy. We had the pleasure meeting the owner and we were Blessed to be able to call their Home our Home for the week. We ended up extending our stay by one day! Wish we were still there! Thanks Michael!
