Property type house

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12

Leave your worries behind and set your destination to the heading of ‘beach vacation’ via The Boathouse. Set less than a mile south from the popular Destin Commons, just west of Hurricane Lanes family entertainment center, and two blocks north of the Gulf of Mexico– The Boathouse will point the way to all that Destin has to show her visitors.

This spacious, three-story Destin vacation rental offers a nautical escape with a charming sailboat and lighthouse décor in each room. It’s a wonderful place to come home to after a fun-filled day at Big Kahuna’s water park, playing golf at a nearby pristine course or sun bathing on the sugar-white sand down the street. Toss the ball around on the lush lawn in the backyard edged by a white picket fence then hop in the pool and fire up the grill for a family cookout. Talk about old times on the third floor balcony overlooking the colorful houses of Crystal Beach or create new memories by whipping up a new recipe in the fully- stocked kitchen.

Whatever you choose, The Boathouse will be the wind behind your sails on your next Destin adventure.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time in the Boathouse! The third floor room was great for one person...we called it The Penthouse. :) The 2nd level is laid out a little crazy. At the very top of the steps is the room with 2 single beds. The people who get the master bedroom have to walk through the single beds room to get to their room. And the bathroom on the 2nd floor is a great size for multiple users but it's located right outside the master bedroom which has no there's not maximum privacy in the master bedroom. Overall though, we loved the house, and our stay. We had a great time! :)

July 2017 Stay

Newman Daley & location were great. The house & pool fit our families perfectly; the cleanliness of the house & yard however were disappointing. Mold is in several places on tree ceilings, the air returns were filthy, the floors & baseboards also hadn't recently been cleaned. The patio furniture was dirty & old & all umbrellas broken. The grass isn't maintained, the pool floor was disgusting & there was strewn garbage. That said, we enjoyed our stay in the area & again the location of the house, unlikely though we'll return to this property.

The Boathouse stay was a very pleasant experience. the location was ideal,close to everything. needed nothing but the clothes you packed and maybe food you crave. I enjoyed the beach 150 yards away. I would recommend this place and Newman-Dailey to anyone. Really looking forward to reserving next year. Thanks Ryan Coletta for making great family memories for years to come
