Destin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo 3 Bedrooms 3 Baths Over 2,000sqf Beautiful Balcony & Gulf Views Sleeps 6-8

Oceania 706 is a spacious Gulf front condo with three bedrooms and three bathrooms with magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico. Upon entering the condo the first thing you will notice are the floor to ceiling windows offering unobstructed panoramic views of the emerald green Gulf of Mexico and the sugar white sandy beach.

Oceania is a gated condominium with one of largest private beaches in the area. With only 71 units in the entire building, Oceania is considered a low density building giving everyone plenty of room on the beach. Amenities include a private beach, beach service (two beach chairs and umbrella setup daily - Mar-Oct), reserved covered parking, swimming pool, fitness room, gas grills, wireless internet, enhanced DirecTV package and keyless access.

The condo also offers an impressive balcony where you will be able to see for miles from the 7th floor! Enjoy your morning coffee, afternoon lunches and relaxing dinners all while watching the beautiful ocean waves. The balcony can be accessed from three different sets of sliding glass doors and offers lounge chairs and tables. You will enjoy entertaining or just relaxing every day and night on the balcony. Curl up and read your favorite book, watch the dolphins swim by, or just enjoy the ocean breeze as life’s pressures just melt away.

The kitchen has new kitchen cabinets (2013), higher-end appliances and is fully equipped with all the tools you need to prepare your favorite meals.

The large living and dining area has a wet-bar with a stand alone ice maker ready for your entertaining. The spacious living room will give everyone plenty of room to spread out. Sofa sheets are provided for the sofa sleeper to allow the condo to sleep up to eight. In the living room there is a 55' LCD-flat screen TV with upgraded DirecTv package (HBO, Golf channel, SEC, BIG 10 Networks), and a Blu-Ray/DVD player for those movie nights.

The master bedroom has a wall of windows overlooking the gulf, new 47' TV, huge walk-in closet and the bathroom offers a double vanity, Jacuzzi bathtub and a separate shower.

The second and third bedrooms each have their own private baths, queen size beds, large closets, and 32' LED TV's. All of the bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers.

Oceania is located on Holiday Isle which is a small peninsula in the Destin area. This peninsula is only a few miles in length and is surrounded by Destin Harbor to the north and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. Holiday Isle is off the beaten path but centrally located where you are literally minutes away from all the shopping, dining, fishing, amusements, golf and fun the Destin area has to offer. Destin has an abundant of water-view restaurants and fun dockside bars; plenty of restaurants from formal dining to fast-food to your classic mom and pop. Destin offers a world-class charter fishing fleet, sailing excursions, sunset cruises, dolphin cruises, pleasure boat rentals, diving and snorkeling trips. Nearby are abundant shopping opportunities from exclusive boutiques to outlet stores to antique shops. Numerous golf courses and amusement parks are only a short drive away. And don’t forget the beautiful Emerald Coast with the whitest sand with the softest grain you’ll ever feel.

About Marcia Matthias

Ken and Marcia Matthias made a dream come true when they purchased Oceania 706 from the Hines family in December 2014. The Matthias' have been vacationing on Holiday Isle in Destin with their two daughters and close friends since 1993.

Marcia Matthias purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marcia Matthias chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Prior to 2014 we had rented condos at other complexes on Holiday Ilse. In September 2014 we rented a condo at Oceania for the first time and immediately realized we had found the ideal property in Destin. Oceania offers so much more than most condo's - from the large balcony overlooking the beautiful serene Gulf, to the large, open floor plan, to the awesome beach - it is just the perfect place.

What is unique about Oceania is overall the complex is small consisting of 9 floors, 71 gulf front units with only 24 actively on the rental program. The complexes to the right and left of Oceania are also on the small side and do not allow rentals. Therefore a vacationer has plenty of sandy white beach and ocean waves to enjoy. We believe you too will find the privacy and quality to entice you to make this your vacation destination.

Oceania was constructed by Bennett Development. Their detail and quality in building exceed all others.

What makes this condo unique

The complex is immaculately maintained. Nice perks include a covered parking place, keyless entry (no more trying to remember who has the key or where is the key), and an ice machine in the condo!

Destin is known for deep sea fishing, gorgeous sunsets and shopping galore. Oceania is only minutes from everything - Paradise awaits you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay after the rain left Sunday! The condo was very nicely furnished, and we appreciated the extras we have not experienced at other condos. We really like the Oceania and will stay there again when a three bedroom will suffice.

Thanks for making this condo experience special to us!

Oceania 706 Destin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Oceania 706, there is no other place that we would stay at, when in Destin. They had everything that you could need for a stay; from beach towels, chairs, umbrella, to a well stocked cabinet with assorted spices and a multitude of cooking equipment. The location

was the best and we all loved watching the view on the expansive balcony. They had games and a variety of books for every interest. We can't say enough about the great accommodations of Oceania 706. I would totally recommend a visit to this great condo!

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay. The condo was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed. We received our entry codes about 2 weeks before our stay so there was no need to check in anywhere. We'll definitely be coming back to stay at 706!!

Wonderful condo & great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. All the things we needed were provided & more. Certainly could have packed much less. The location is perfect with beautiful views. We have stayed at many condos in Destin, & this one is our favorite. The only disappointing part was having to leave. Marcia, the owner, provided excellent communication from start to finish. We loved not having to check-in/out. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo with us. Hope we can stay here again next year.

Wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We had six adults and we had everything we needed. The beach and pool were so close and were used by all. We used the grill and it was clean and convenient. The ice maker was a huge hit and was constantly full. Thanks for all the attention to detail with plenty of dishes, beach chairs and towels. We had a wonderful stay and hope to stay here again.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best place we have stayed at in Destin. The condo was beautiful and extremely accommodating. The decor and appliances were up to date and living space was clean and comfortable. My kids were happy to have their own room and bathroom and we all enjoyed the added benefit of having our own space/privacy. We especially loved having beach towels, chairs, and toys provided for us...gave us plenty of extra room in the car and saved us trips to the store. The ice maker was an added bonus. Our favorite part of 706 is the gorgeous ocean views from inside and outside th condo. The extremely large beachfront balcony makes it hard to ever go inside. Oceania is a safe, secure, and beautiful property and allows private, covered parking along with easy access to a stunning private pool and gorgeous private beach. We also loved the beach setup that was provided for us everyday. We felt completely spoiled at Oceania 706!!!
