About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

The welcoming yard of this Destin vacation rental dotted with blooming buds, white benches and hedged by a picket fence all seem to say “C’mon on in and stay a while!” True to southern tradition, Stairway to Hammock Heaven boasts not only a cheerful front porch with chairs but many other cozy porches and balconies ideal for sipping tea and catching up on old times. In fact, the crowning glory of this spacious home is the crow’s nest balcony perched at the very top- four hammock chairs sway in the wind and offer beautiful glimpses of all of Destin and the Emerald Coast beyond.

All of this and we haven’t even mentioned the sundrenched pool deck or the gorgeous interior yet! It’s impossible not to fall in love with the beach meets chic décor where perfectly placed furnishings and accents gleam with nautical inspiration.

Plus, outstanding features like stone countertops in the large kitchen home to a breakfast nook overlooking the pool, easy-to-clean tile and hardwood floors, a full laundry room and a separate ice maker will all ensure that guests are comfortable, clean and well cared for.

Each bedroom in Stairway to Hammock Heaven seems to have an invigorating effect with colorful bedding and eye-catching art- sure to put a hop in your step as you walk to the beach! Moreover, the master suite has the added luxury of an oversized bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath.

While it’s indisputably lovely to stay at Stairway to Hammock Heaven, it’s equally as nice to explore its surroundings! The beach is within walking distance and the Destin Commons, golf courses and grocery stores are a minute away in the car.

The pool has a Spill-Over Spa. This is not a Hot Tub and cannot be heated independent of the pool. Pool may be heated for an additional fee upon request in season.

What a wonderful home. Our much needed family vacation was a success. Thanks so much for the champagne to celebrate our twin daughters' 30 birthday.

Wonderful Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed 8 nights at "Stairway to Hammock Heaven" over the Christmas holiday. Despite the somewhat cool, dreary, weather we had a great time. The house exceeded our high expectations. The newly renovated kitchen with the large island served us well for cooking, dining, and socializing. The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of cookware, dishes, and utensils for us to prepare meals. The bedrooms were comfortable and easily accommodated our family of nine. We especially liked the added touches like the board games & puzzles, TV's in all the bedrooms, gas grill, separate ice maker, and lots outdoor furniture. We really got the impression that the owners care about the house and you are staying in their personal home. Upon arrival the house was clean and bright with lots of decorations that gave the home a personal touch. The house is located in a very nice neighborhood with only a short walk to the beautiful sugar sand beaches of Destin, FL as well as being convenient to shopping. Finally, we would like to put in a special thank you to the owners for maintaining a wonderful property, we hope to return again in the Spring or Summer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Stairway to Hammock Heaven was a wonderful place for our family of 9 to stay. There was plenty of room for 6 adults and 3 children 5 and under. The house was wonderfully decorated and up to date. The pool in the backyard was very much appreciated by the children as well as the adults after returning from the short walk to the beach. We hope to return again & again!!!
