A Gust of Sun reservation includes two houses as described below:

Sun I (3 bedroom - 2.5 bath - sleeps 10+) has a floor plan that includes a spacious master bedroom on the main floor, fully equipped kitchen and dining area, comfortable living (w/ qn sleeper sofa) plus laundry room. Upper floor bedrooms include a cozy queen bed room plus a second bunk bedroom with 2 full beds & 2 single bunks (a great teen/children’s room).

Sun II (4 bedroom - 3.5 bath - sleeps 10+) has a floor plan that includes two luxurios master suites. Main floor has a huge king master, large kitchen (stainless steel appliances) that opens to a great dining area (seats 12-16+), spacious living area, and separate laundry room. Second floor includes a roomy queen master suite w/ private balcony, another large queen bedroom w/private balcony, plus a bedroom with two full beds.

Gust of Sun includes two fully equipped kitchens, loaded to let the chef of your family create your meals. Plenty of seating with two dining areas & two very comfortable living room areas with flat screen televisions and surround sound systems. Gust of Sun includes a large courtyard and other patio areas for entertaining or a morning cup of coffee. Other outdoor extras include 2 bbq grills and outdoor showers. Rolling coolers, beach chairs, and towels provided. Gust of Sun is very family friendly, providing highchairs, pack and play cribs, wagons, and safety gates.

Gust of Sun rental rates are very affordable. Get the benefits of a private pool without the expense (neighboring homes rent for an additional $2,000 per week for similar accommodations with a private pool). The large private/community pool (heated in spring) is just steps out the back door from Gust of Sun (see Gust of Sun in background of pool photo below). There are two large pools in this private community, and most homes have small private pools, so very few properties use the pools.

We have a great value that includes two very clean and well-managed properties located only a short walk to the beach - no golf cart necessary. Check out the fantastic 'traveler reviews' from past guests.

Gust of Sun is located on the peaceful and less congested east side of Destin. Pompano Joe's & Whale's Tale are within walking distance (1/4 mile). Gust of Sun is central to all shopping (Destin Commons & Silversands Outlet Mall), close to many fabulous restaurants, and convenient to the Sandestin & Grand Boulevard.

Keywords: Gust of Sun reservations. Families or groups. Close to beach. Gated subdivision. Pool.

About Cole Gustafson

GUST OF SUN VILLAS is a family owned and managed property. You get the personal attention not offered at the large property management firms. The homes were formerly known as Palm Villa, but are now under new ownership who will strive to build upon the excellence began with Palm Villa.

What makes this house unique

HIGLIGHTS of GUST OF SUN VILLAS is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Two minute stroll to the emerald ocean waters (NO CART NEEDED), walking distance to Pamopano Joe's & Whale's Tale, nestled in a peaceful gated community, and next door to one of the heated community pools (like a private pool without the cost).

GUST OF SUN is the COMFORTABLE, IMMACULATE & EXTREMELY WELL MANAGED property. The rooms are very spacious (midwest style) and beautifully decorated. Like renting TWO HOME FOR THE PRICE OF ONE - with two kitchens, dining areas, living areas, laundry rooms. LOADS OF ROOM AND PRIVACY needed for a relaxing vacation.

Beautiful Houses! Beautiful Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The properties were beautiful, well maintained, and close to the beach. We loved the idea of two separate houses for a little more privacy and space. The bedrooms were spacious and nicely decorated. The bathrooms were large and modern and the common rooms were inviting. We loved our stay there and would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of a getaway to Destin.

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The 2 villas were clean and comfortable for our large family. Everything we needed was furnished and there was ample baby stuff. It was nice having the pool close and the patio between the villas, as it made it seem like all one property. It was a good place for evening hangouts before everyone retreated to their own villa for sleeping. It is in a nice neighborhood and a short walk to the beautiful beach. The only negative aspect was all the steps that lead down to the beach. That is hard on older people and when carrying lots of kids' stuff. There are tons of restaurants and shopping nearby. I would definately stay here again.

Awesome week

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year that we have stayed at Gust of Sun Villas. We have 24 family members that enjoy getting together each year. The homes are very clean, well stocked, and just a short walk to the beach. Also the shared pool is just as close as if it was in your back yard. The owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. We will be back again.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great - everything we needed. The kids loved being so close to the pool and the walk to the beach is so easy. We enjoyed the fire pit at night. We hope to go back soon!
