It is fully outfitted with everything you need, just bring your clothes, food, and willingness to have a great time. You can see the Gulf of Mexico from the unit, however, we are not on the beach. For the money, The Palms is one of the best treats in town.

Just what the family ordered....A relaxing time in Destin where you can enjoy it all..the beach, shopping, golf, pools, restaurants, deep see fishing, scuba, snuba and snorkeling, or just doing nothing. It can all happen in Destin and at the Palms of Destin.

This is a true vacation experience!!! The Palms of Destin is an exceptional resort that offers many options. Whether you want to relax at the phenomenal lagoon pool, go to the BEST BEACHES in the world, go shopping, sailing, dining, fishing, you get the picture, The Palms is close to everything. The Palms has a very nice fitness center and the convention space if you having meetings. There are several pools including the large zero entry pool, the smaller heated pool, a large hot tub, a shallow pool for the kids and a splash pad. Our guests have truly enjoyed their stays and we have had many return guests and referrals, a true indicator that folks like what they are getting.

The Palms is located just 700 yards from the beach. You can either take the free shuttle or walk across HWY 98 to the June Decker County beach. There are bathroom facilities at the beach. The Back Porch Restaurant, a Destin landmark, is next door to this beach as well, a great place to spend the evening.

Other close attractions are The Track, Big Kahunas Waterpark, Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory, Joe's Crab Shack FudPuckers Restaurant, Fat Daddy's Pizza and Arcade. Destin Harbor and the fishing fleet are just down the road where you can book your deep sea fishing trips. One thing you will want to do is to take a GLASS BOTTOM Boat Tour or go snorkeling with Destin Snorkel.

Going in the other direction is Destin Commons, a Main Street type shopping destination. A few miles to the east is Sandestin and all it has to offer. Destin has lots of local and very good restaurants that you need to find, don't just go to the chains.

Come here and explore!!! I have called it home since 1997 and don't want to live anywhere else.

About Peter Burke

Peter and Stephanie own this condominium with our partners that live in Franklin, LA which is where we are originally from. We have lived in Destin for over 18 years now and truly love this place. Destin is home for us and we truly enjoy the resort atmosphere it offers. We hope you get the same feeling when you visit!!!

Peter Burke purchased this condo in 2007

Why Peter Burke chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We purchased our condo at The Palms when there was just sand on the ground. Stephanie worked with the development team and we knew it would be a great property after completion. As you can see in the pictures and after you visit, you can and will agree that The Palms is a special vacation Destination.

What makes this condo unique

One of the best pools in Destin, some of the best amenities, and all for less than the price of a hotel.

Great vacation condo!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Destin with our daughter playing in a softball tournament. The condo was perfect! I started my day each morning on the balcony with my coffee enjoying the view of the pool and the ocean in the distance. The kids loved the pool and the whole family used the workout room. Peter was great to work with and I would recommend this condo!

Beautiful condo and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Mr. Burke's condo celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The property looks exactly like the pictures and was clean and well maintained. The beds were comfy and great water pressure in the shower. :) We enjoyed the Back Porch restaurant along with Louisiana Lagniappe. It was nice to have coffee (on the balcony with the gorgeous view) and breakfast every morning in the condo before hitting the beach. We also appreciated getting our security deposit back one week after our return. We will definitely come back. Thanks Mr. Burke!
