About John & Dawn Foy

We want to welcome you to this beautiful paradise called Destin! We lived in Virginia Beach, Va for many years and then moved here 14 years ago (and both of us were originally born and raised in upstate New York) We've been in the rental business for 26 years.....been married 27 years.....and very happily at that! 15 years ago we were considering moving to Hawaii until a relative said we just HAD to visit Destin...he said it was like being in Hawaii right here on the mainland! So we visited and fell instantly in love with the place.....went home, sold our rental business and moved here in a matter of months. The rest is history. We have 2 children.....20 and 21.... & have homeschooled them from the start. We believe in Jesus!, family and integrity. Hopefully you will enjoy your Destin vacation! Once you get that sand in your shoes....you can never get it out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for making our family vacation so memorable. This house is filled with peace in every nook & cranny. A very prayed up home. It is pristine in beauty and cleanliness. We loved being able to eat together in the spacious dining room and/or at large kitchen counter. We all played in the pool and took the short walk to beach daily!

INCREDIBLE BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

The Island Pearl is an amazing beach home!!!! It is beautiful and had plenty of space for our family (14 total, 10 adults and 4 kids). I loved the layout of the first floor having a huge open living room, dining room and kitchen. It was the perfect place for our entire family to spend time together. I also loved that almost all of the bedrooms had king size beds (nice for moms and dads having to sleep with little ones:). The location is perfect. You can walk easily to the beach in a minute and the owners provide a wagon and beach supplies!!!! The pool is so nice to have as an option as well. My kids LOVE to swim so being able to wake up first thing in the morning and jump in the pool was perfect! The owners were very responsive to any questions I had and very understanding!!!!! My kids and family are already trying to figure out a time we can go back next year! We would recommend this home to anyone!!!!!!

Great Home for a large family get together!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Destin for Christmas 11 of the past 12 years and everyone agreed this stay was one of the best! The house was very accommodating for our family of 14 and even though it rained a lot the house was a great place to hang out. Hopefully, we will enjoy our next Christmas together in this wonderful home.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome home that was exactly what we were looking for. lots of room for families and yet had so many bedrooms and decks you could have your own space if you needed it. Pool was awesome and the grandkids loved it. Definitely a place we hope to go again next year.

Beach House People Now!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! We have always been resort people. But your house has changed that! The walk to the beach was no further than being on the 5th floor of a resort and having to walk through halls, parking garages, etc. Our own private pool outweighed the ocean front condos we have stayed in. The kids loved having their own pool and could go anytime without having to wait for a parent to "walk them down".

It was also nice that the home was so clean. We didn't feel like we had to constantly tell the toddlers to get off the floors "cause they are dirty"!

We always went to Myrtle Beach... But Destin doesn't even compare!! We are Destin people now!

Thanks again for your hospitality!

house in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My entire family 0f 16 spent a week in March at Island Pearl. The home is exactly as Dawn and John describe. It is beautiful. We have stayed on the Gulf Coast at several locations but Island Pearl is without doubt the nicest and most spacious of any we have visited. My extended family ranged in age from 10 to 69 and everyone loved the heated backyard pool and close proximity to the beach. My kids and grandkids said this was their favorite location ever. When we return to Destin we will definitely stay at Island Pearl. Destin is a 5 star city and Island Pearl is a 5 star location.

Owner's Response: Our goal, for the past 28 years of being in the rental business, has been to make our clients vacation as memorable as this customers was. Its rare that tenants care enough to notice the effort we owners put into trying to give them a wonderful home/vacation and its rare that if they do notice, that they take the time to give a super report like these kind folks did. We thank you very much for it!! and look forward to your soon return!

Paradise in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Island Pearl with a large group of family ages 10 months to 86 years old. Dawn and John Foy were wonderful to work with throughout the entire rental process. They were always quick to respond to any questions I had and were so friendly and knowledgeable. The house was BEAUTIFUL! It was much more spacious than the pictures reflect. We were all already very impressed and excited for our trip based on the pictures shown, and and once we arrived and looked around we were very pleasantly surprised! It was even better than expected! The kitchen was big enough for several people to prepare a meal together and the seating was more than adequate. The common areas of the home were very comfortable. The bedrooms were all perfect and everything in the home was immaculate. The pool was so nice to have since we had babies in tow and some older adults who weren't able to do the beach. We also really loved enjoying the pool in the evenings, as the back of the home is well lit and the pool lights were really fun for the kids since they were multicolored. The beach was a short distance away, everyone walked back and forth with no complaints. It was close enough to go back to the house for lunch and then return to the beach without feeling like you were exhausted :) The ocean and the beach were BEAUTIFUL! The home was VERY conveniently located to restaurants, activities, grocery, liquor stores, gas station, etc. I hope to return again some day! You won't regret renting at Island Pearl :)
