About The Owner

We love coming to Destin. A couple times a year we find time to steal away to get a few days of peace and relaxation. We live, work, and go to school in Alpharetta, a suburb of Atlanta. Our lives are very hectic and we come to Destin to find our Zen.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin is famous for its sugary, white sand beaches and warm, blue Gulf waters. What better place to find balance, to find peace, to find your Zen.

We love to get away to Destin. We bought Destin Zen so that we would have a place to go find our Zen.

Destin Zen is available to rent so that you can go find your Zen. It's a beautiful, new villa in the Crystal Beach area (center) of Destin.

Beautiful vacation home.

  • 4 of 5

My family, friends, and I have stayed at Destin Zen the last two years. It is a beautiful, spacious and clean home. Literally a 5 minute walk to the beach, which is very enjoyable because of all the beautiful beach homes you see on the way there. If you are not crazy about walking then you can call for the trolley and they will pick you up at the house and take you to the beach.

The great village pool is just around the corner, less than a minute from the house.

The owners are very nice and helpful and when needed communicated in a timely manner.

Great kitchen (if you like to stay home for some of the meals) and lots of sitting space.

We will definitely come back!

Beautiful home, well furnished, excellent location, feels like a second home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year driving to Destin from Texas. Destin Zen was a beautiful home, well furnished and decorated. Its owners designed a home that they would feel comfortable in and that made it all the more pleasant for our stay. The neighborhood was perfect for a family trip. Close to the beach, the part of the beach it was near was beautiful, near seadoo rentals, family friendly and clean. The part of Destin it was made everything accessible. Exactly in between the harborwalk and the outlet mall. Within a mile of destin commons and good restaurants as well.

The owner's instructions were user friendly. Only feedback is to tell renters what to do with towels. We just threw them all in washer which is what other rentals typically have you do but it was not outlined in instructions.

Perfect for 2 familes

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at Destin Zen with my family and another family. The pictures are absolutely representative of the home and pool. The home is clean, well-furnished, and offers space for everyone. Having 2 master suites was perfect with 2 families - no one had to draw the short straw. The owner was wonderful to deal with - prompt responses/very upfront with all of the details, etc. As an FYI - you will need to bring or buy paper products, kitchen/bathroom cleaner, laundry supplies, and garbage bags - there were a few things left behind but certainly not enough for a weeks stay. The beach is easily walking distance if you are an active adult and pool is amazing for kids of all ages. It's clean and there are restrooms. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star review was because of the community. The homes are very close together (you can hear conversations from homes a few doors down loud and clear), the outdoor space is minimal - as you see in the pictures a long narrow 2nd floor balcony is the only place to gather. The evenings were so temperate that we loved to sit outside after the smaller children were in bed, but the space was right outside of where the children slept and was cramped. There are a lot of rental homes in this community and with that comes a variety of people. Some homes had 5 or 6 families stuffed into them - which made the community feel more crowded than it needed to be. There were a few fights at the pool throughout the week and a few disorderly residents - the police constantly monitor this community and seemed to be on top of any incidents pretty quickly. Overall, this is a great house for the price with modern fixtures and furnishings and your children will love the proximity to the beach and the pool!

Great Place For Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Very well appointed and taken care of. We had 9 people, me, my wife, and 16 year old daughter, my brother, his wife, and 14 year old son, and our 22 year old daughter with her husband and our 6 month old grandson. One of the best vacations ever. The pool is great even if it is always a little too warm for me. The only surprise we had was the distance to the beach. The savior was the public beach access and parking at the Crab Trap. We packed up all our stuff and drove to the beach and that worked well. Next time we will bring a beach tent and have even more fun. As far as restaurants and shopping the location was great because it is out of the traffic but close to the stuff.
