Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

The view of the beach from this property was beautiful. Lots of room for all of us between both houses (we had 18 people). We really enjoyed the house. It had everything we needed. It was very nice to have our own pool and direct access to the beach. One thing to note, there is no closet in the downstairs bedroom near the front door and the upstairs floor in the 2nd house slants pretty bad.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideal for our Spring Break! We shared the house with 3 families total, and the layout was perfect! We were pleasantly surprised at how close we were to the pool and the beach - so convenient! We would definitely recommend this house to anyone. We have stayed in various locations in Destin and this was by far our favorite location. Destiny-by-the-Sea is the best location there is!!

What an amazing vacation!...

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation!!! The Three Amigos was above and beyond our expectations. Destiny by the Sea is by far the best hidden secret in Destin. The gated neighborhood and private beach made us feel like we were on a tropical island but we still had the extras of Destin!! We had a wonderful time with our whole family in this great house. Three generations!!!!! We loved the layout of the house - the three levels gave us plenty of room to have our own space but still stay together. The children loved the bottom floor bunk room and "futon area". The adults loved our own little floor upstairs. The walk to the beach was short and beautiful. We were visiting for spring break and the local area beaches were packed - we only shared the beach with families!!!! Pool was great and HEATED!!!! The big screen tv was awesome for the Tennessee basketball games during March Madness. We will definately be back to the 3 amigos this summer!!!!
