Overview

Emerald Coast-Destin Area Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come experience the best of what the world famous Emerald Coast has to offer for an unbeatable price!

Our townhome, located in the Southbay by Gulf community, is truly a slice of heaven. Our home is located in the heart of Destin and is just minutes away from everything the areas has to offer. We are located on the south side of Highway 98 - that means there are no streets to cross! In fact our unit is located just 120 yards from the pristine white sand beaches.

Your stay with us comes complete with access to two swimming pools (1 heated), a kiddie pool, 2 lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard, a fully stocked and fishable 5 acres lake, and private beach access.

The townhome comes fully furnished with plush and comfortable accommodations. The unit comfortably sleeps 6 with two well appointed bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the main living area. One thing that sets us apart from other townhomes is that our backyard is the 5 acre lake! There are two very large balconies, one off the master bedroom and one of the living room, that you and your guests can relax on as you enjoy the lakefront view. You can also fish right off the balcony!

The kitchen has all of the amenities you may need to cook and entertain and there is a dining area to enjoy as well. There is also a full size washer and dryer inside the townhome for your convenience. Lastly, we also provide free internet access in your townhome so that you can stay connected.

When you are ready to head down to the beach we also provide 2 complementary beach chairs and an umbrella, professionally set up and waiting for you. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the best beaches in the country!

About Owner operated

It all started when our friends invited us to stay in their condo at Southbay. We fell in love with the white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of the Gulf & Destin

Owner operated purchased this townhome in 1976

Why Owner operated chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Once you see the beaches in Destin you know that this is the place to be. White sugar sand, excellent temperate weather and wonderful local establishments mix together to make Destin the best kept secret on the Gulf of Mexico.

What makes this townhome unique

The 5 acre fresh water lake forms the basis of our backyard and is the view you have when waking up in the morning in your comfortable master bedroom or relaxing in your spacious living room. Just steps away from white sugar sand beaches!

Clean and good location

  • 4 of 5

This townhouse is in a beautiful community in Destin, and sits nicely overlooking a lake from both back decks which was the best feature for us. The walk to a nice private beach is fairly short, and the pools are sizeable and have kids pools next to them. Really fit our family well. Everything functioned well in townhouse for the most part, although we did find the master bed to be a bit hard (but we are used to a much softer mattress, so I'm sure it could have been our own personal adjustment). Overall, the photos represented the property pretty well, so everything was mostly up to the expectations we had for it when we booked. Definitely a good spot for a family vacation, with a lot to like, including the owner who was helpful, involved, and seemed genuinely interested that you enjoyed your time and the townhouse. Good to do business with people who care!

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

When we rented this place we had no idea what to expect. It was well above our expectations! It was so neat. My son spent a lot of time fishing off of the deck and actually catching decent fish. The beach was about 2 minutes away and I loved the umbrella and chair rental that was included with our stay. The place is very clean and well kept and is in a very quiet and family friendly neighborhood. I will definitely look in to this rental next year when we come back to Destin. I cannot say enough good things about this rental!

Another great stay in unit 58!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year in a row my family has rented this unit. Every year the unit is super clean on arrival. The unit easily accommodates my family of six as well. It is on the lake and has two decks to enjoy the lake view from. It is a very short walk to the beach and an even shorter walk to the pool. Kids love going for a night swim after a long day at the beach. The location in destin is great as well. It is very easy to get to target, walgreens and gift shops. Close enough to walk to actually. Cant wait to come back next year.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Bob, for letting us use your condo again this year! As usual, everything was in perfect order, neat and clean. We ate in every night and had plenty of cookware to do so (although, we contributed a muffin tin to your stock!). Our daughter and her friend loved feeding and naming the ducks and turtles out the back decks! Looking forward to next year already!
