Overview

Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This condo is direct Gulf-front at its best! Our condo is on the top floor and our view is fantastic. Please be sure to view the video of our condo linked on this website. Located at the ever-popular Holiday Surf and Racquet Club on exclusive Holiday Isle... a peninsula surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor... View sugar white sand and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico right from your own living room and private balcony!

You don't have to cross the road to enjoy the surf here. Removed from US Highway 98 traffic, but minutes from restaurants, shopping, boat docks, fishing, golf, and amusements. Walk or jog on Holiday Isle's two and a half miles of sidewalks, or bike through its quiet neighborhood streets. Nothing else in Destin can compare!

This one bedroom, one bath, seventh-floor unit sleeps six... with two full-size beds in the bedroom and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. The cook will find a fully-equipped kitchen... with a view of the Gulf of Mexico to boot! Dining table seats six. We have a 42' Hi Def TV in the living room and a 32' Hi-Def TV in the bedroom in case you hit a rainy day or want to watch a DVD at night.

NOTE: Minimum rental age 25 and is verified at check-in by staff. Our condo does not allow any pets and it is a No Smoking condo.

Just outside Holiday Surf's door you can step into our heated pool... or take a few steps across sugar white sand to swim in the beautiful emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. Holiday Surf offers two lighted tennis courts and exercise facilities onsite. Opportunities for paddle boarding, kayaking, parasailing, snorkeling, and fishing can be found along the beach too.

Holiday Surf & Racquet Club is located a little east of the 'jetties,' where the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor meet, a spot well-known for great snorkeling and diving. And the perfect place for the end of the day... Here you can watch a parade of boats returning from Gulf to harbor as, behind them, the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico.

Only a few minutes' drive will take you to Destin Harbor... home of Destin's world-class charter fishing fleet, plus sailing excursions, sunset cruises, pleasure boat rentals, diving, and snorkeling trips... also, wonderful water-view restaurants and fun dockside bars. Nearby are abundant shopping opportunities... from exclusive boutiques to outlet stores, antiques, and art to sandals and bathing suits. Numerous golf courses and amusement parks are only a short drive away.

About Mark Lucas

My name is Mark Lucas and my wife Judy Lucas and I live in Elk River, MN. We purchased our condo in 2003 and have been pleased to share it with many Destin vacationers over the years. We have three children, and we love to vacation in Destin as often as we can.

Why Mark Lucas chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

The beaches in Destin Florida are superior to any other in the continental U.S. and the crystal clear, emerald green water is fantastic to swim in. Our condo is on Holiday Isle which is a very upscale section in Destin and when you travel down Gulf Shore Drive to our condo you will pass by multi-million dollar gulf front homes which are beautifully landscaped. The aesthetic of Holiday Isle is gorgeous, beautifully landscaped and quiet as it is off the 'main drag' of Destin.

What makes this condo unique

Our fantastic direct gulf front condo offers easy access to sugar white sand beach, heated pool, tennis courts, snorkeling, sea kayaking and other water & beach activities. Our condo is located close to the Destin Harbor district, where you can dine overlooking the gulf & harbor, rent a pontoon boat or jet ski, go charter fishing or take a dolphin cruise.

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely would recommend this condo to anyone. Perfect location. Loved the gated community. Very clean. The owner was very nice & helpful. This area of the beach was not very crowded during our week stay which was a plus also.

Best Deal in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

I hate to write a review on this condo as the more people that find out about what a great deal it is, the more likely it will fill up and I won't be able to rent the week I want! This condo provides great access to he beach. It has a great view and is close to lots and lots of great places to eat. The condo has comfortable furniture, big screen TV and DVD player, and nice furnishings. Great internet access. I also love the fact that it has lots of hooks for hanging hats, sunglasses, wet bathing suits, etc. Also the closets have hangers! Balcony furniture is also very comfortable.
