Destiny-By-The-Sea House Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 18

Dolce Vita is a remarkable and classy 6 bedroom, 5.5 bath, gulf view home located in the luxurious neighborhood of Destiny by the Sea. The house sits directly in front of the beach access boardwalk and features a private pool. Pool heat is available at an additional charge. Dolce Vita features flat screen tv's in each bedroom, an elevator to all three levels, an outdoor shower, a laundry room, and parking for 3 vehicles. Let this professionally decorated, contemporary style home be your quiet and comfortable retreat!

Step inside to the first floor entry way adorned with warm colors, polished décor, and beautiful travertine floors. You can find a cozy sitting/media room on this floor that can double as an extra bedroom with a sleeper sofa and patio access. Around the corner are two bedrooms which share a Jack and Jill bathroom with a double vanity. One bedroom is a queen bed and the other is a king bed.

The second level opens up to the subtle sophistication of the main living area of the home. The natural light pours through the abundance of windows to illuminate the stunning elegance of the living room, kitchen, and dining room. The gourmet kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel GE appliances. It opens up nicely to share the space with friends and family while they dine at the table or lounge on the plush living room couch. Step outside on the roomy gulf view balcony to grill out or just sit and take in the surrounding beauty. Back inside and down the hall is a king bedroom with a private bathroom featuring a Jacuzzi tub.

At the top of the stairs on the third floor you will find yet another relaxing sitting room in the loft with a queen sleeper sofa and wet bar with mini fridge and ice maker. There is a king bedroom with a private bathroom featuring a Jacuzzi tub. As an added perk, there is a bonus room with two twin/twin bunk beds! Last you have the exquisite master suite that offers a lush king bed, private bath with Jacuzzi tub, and a gulf view balcony to enjoy the picturesque sunsets or sunrises that Destin has to offer.

Christmas in Destin

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Christmas in Destin. Fifteen of us gathered from four states and spent a week in Dolche Vita. The house was so roomy and inviting and we made lifelong memories there! Steps from the beach - pool and hot tub in the yard - and a bonfire down the beach - every minute was special. My 89 year old aunt was thrilled to sit in and watch her great nieces and nephews from the deck! The elevator made this trip possible for her. Just minutes from anything you need yet far enough away to know you are in paradise! The only glitch was parking because we had more cars than the driveway could hold. There are a few places down the road and Five Star offered parking down the road at their office. Cannot really go wrong at Dolche Vita! Thanks for so much fun!

Dolce Vita - Expensive and over rated

  • 3 of 5

Dolce Vita is basically a rental cottage. While it promotes itself as being able to sleep 18, its living and eating areas are not well suited for so many people. The furniture is sub-standard for such an expensive rental and the furniture in the living room needs to be replaced. The home probably works best for smaller family get-togethers. We had 8 adults, two teenagers and four grandchildren (under the age of 4) and there was not enough room for a full family meal or for a get-together in the living room. We liked the balcony best and while the pool was small - it was fun -

Dolce Vita family vacation July 2014

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Dolce Vita last week. This was our second time renting this home. The home and Five Star Beach Property Management group were fantastic. The home was well equipped with towels and kitchen items. The instructions on operating the tv, pool, etc were very helpful. We had a great stay and didn't wish for anything more in the house.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for a family vacation! The home suited our family of 11 well. Being a gated community gave us privacy and security. Having the beach just feet away from the front door was wonderful! Just a short stroll down the beach are several restaurants. Our family is already planning next years trip back to Dolce Vita!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The 2,500 character limit for this review is in no way, shape or form enough to give the experience of this house it's rightful due. It begins with it's accessibility to the beach (12 seconds, though I think you could do it in 5), nightlife (vibrant and seemingly around the corner) and golf (I played 4 courses within 10 minutes). And if that isn't enough, the house itself is simply gorgeous. It's open, full of natural light and so well appointed that leaving was often a decision I didn't want to make.

In the end, though, it's true magnificence is the near endless opportunities for peace and privacy it offers in the face of chaos. Amazingly, even in a house full of people intent on having a good time, I was always able to find a spot where I could sit and relax in quiet while listening to the ocean. These moments of peace are why I will always choose to come back to this transcendent slice of heaven.
