Destin Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Three story townhome directly on Destin's harbor. Sandy play/sun bathing area behind unit. Best view in all of Destin. Have the best of all and night views of Destin's harbor district with boating, fishing and nightlife. Just a couple of blocks to the beaches (my four year old makes the walk regularly).

Bring your boat. Boat slip for a boat with a maximum length of 30 feet with a lift that will hold 8000 pounds. There is an area to park your boat trailer during your stay directly in front of the property.

Huge deck for entertaining. One king size bed, two queen size beds.

Come see why all of the action and excitement is centered around Destin's harbor area.

This unit is on the harbor, not a canal. Many of the other townhomes listed are on a canal and NOT the harbor. There is a significant difference in views and breezes.

Note: This is a three story townhome, so there are two flights of stairs. Two bedrooms with private baths are on the top level. One bedroom with a kitchenette and private bath is on the ground level.

This unit was my personal residence for two years and I now use it primarily as a second home. It is not your standard, beat-up rental unit with a dated interior.

This unit sleeps six adults. No more. I do not make exceptions on my no pet policy. Please don't ask.

With limited exception, I only rent for the full week, Saturday - Saturday during the summer months.

The only additional fee other than the rental is a $150 cleaning fee.

About The Owner

I currently live in Kansas City and lived in Destin in this home for two years.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2004

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin has the most friendly people, the best beaches, boating and activities. The location of this unit is absolutely unbelievable. It is surrounded my multi-million dollar homes.

What makes this townhome unique

Uncongested area and the best day/night views and entertainment. There is constant activity in the harbor, day and night. There are several water taxis available to take you around the harbor or to your favorite bar/restaurant so that you don't have to drive your vehicle.

This was our 2nd summer to stay here and we have already booked for next summer. Great location, easy access, relaxing views of the harbor.... Our family loves it! The boat slip is a HUGE help! Plus we have gotten "attached" to the neighbors - good people. Can't wait for next summer - Thanks Jake!

Perfect rental!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a surprise engagement weekend for my longtime girlfriend. The house was exactly as described and shown in the photos, well maintained, the rates were very reasonable for the area, and the location is great! The owner was great to work with and always available for any questions that I had. I would highly recommend this property and will be renting it for many years to come.

Great place, big rooms, great location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week here and were pleasantly surprised by how large it was. The bedrooms are big and the beds were comfy. Great view of the harbor & a fun place to watch the world go by. Nicely decorated too! Watched one of the neighbors catch red fish right off the dock! Neighbors were nice and Jake is a great host. Thanks for the fun times!

Great for families with teens. Only bad thing no elevator and lots of stairs! Got my work out in going up and down. :)

Destins best secret

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property all summer, we absolutely loved it . The harbor is full of life and the deep boat slip was accommadating for our 26' deep V. The neighborhood is safe and quiet, the near by neighbors are so much fun they realy helped make the experience. I cant wait to be back on the Destin harbor in this spacious home with the best views. The owner was also professional and courteous.
