About Mark Jones

This is my second vacation rental. I am retired from owning my own Marketing Research Company in Roswell GA. Being semi retired I wanted to spend more time at the beach. While not using my homes I thought of sharing them with other's. I hope that you enjoy my home as much as I do.

Mark Jones purchased this house in 2015

Why Mark Jones chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

I love this gated beach community and the convenience to the beach with the privacy that I wanted in the evenings with lots of space and the private pool. The clubhouse facilities are also among the very best in all of Destin - huge waterfall pool, tennis, modern workout gym, theatre room and more!

What makes this house unique

What you are unlikely to find in other beach rental homes, The Olive Palm is located in a prestigious gated community, and comes with it's own pool plus complete renter access to the fabulous clubhouse that includes gym, spa, tennis, playground huge pool/jacuzzi and more. And though the clubhouse and beach are only short walks away, your rental includes use of a $15K 6-seater golf cart that is completely street legal and can be used to cruise to the beach, local shops and restaurants. As local renters charge $500+/wk for a golf cart of this kind, I believe the rental value of the Olive Palm with its many upgrades and amenities is among the best you will find in all of Destin!

Great property! Our family of 12 people total had a wonderful Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 5 adults and 7 teenagers, had plenty of space for comfort and relaxation during our Spring Break 2017! The weather was wonderful, and although the pool wasn't heated, the water was still warm enough for a few to enjoy! The outside space around the pool as well as the screened in porch was utilized everyday! The golf cart was especially convenient for the multiple trips to and from the beach daily! Beautiful neighborhood with friendly neighbors and the Community clubhouse and extra amenities were a bonus. The homeowner Mark was very friendly and accessible for any questions. Would recommend!!

Very nice home.

  • 4 of 5

Mark was very accommodating. The house is in a great gated neighborhood. Very easy to get to the beach with the golf cart that comes with the house. We had eight adults and three toddlers for a week. The rooms where big enough for the kids to sleep in the room with their parents and plenty of living space down stairs for us all. It was great to have the small private pool as well as the club house pool. I would recommend this to anyone interested.

A very comfortable and relaxing vacation at Destiny, Destin.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever with our friends from France this year staying at Olive Palm, Destiny.

The house is very spacious and comfortable for the 8 of us. Our guests were quite impressed with the amenities and location of the house.

The beach is a short walk away and with the golf cart, we could bring chairs and umbrellas without getting sand in our cars !!

The kitchen is fully equipped with a over sized dishwasher that allowed us to dine-in a few times.

We also enjoyed using the pool and the jacuzzi at the club house.

All in all, thanks to Mark, we had a wonderful vacation and will surely come back next year. Mid September is a nice time to come with no traffic, no crowds, plenty of parking spaces at the beach and the water is still warm and beautiful !

Mark has been more than helpful, very prompt in getting back to me with any questions that I had.

Thanks again Mark !

Great Location and Beautiful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time at this house. I would recommend anyone to stay there. Based on the location, the pool and the golf cart our stay couldn’t had been better. The house is well stock with beach towels and kitchen utensils. The rooms are spacious enough that you are not on top of one another, there was 5 of us – 2 couples and 1 single person. Couldn’t beat having a washer and dryer to keep the sand off. The pool temperature was beautiful not chilling nor hot – just right. We could have walked to the beach, but why when you have a golf cart!!
