So whether you are getting away from the kids or bringing them with, you will enjoy the breathing room that the recreational area has to offer. Paradise on the white powdery sandy beaches with beautiful sunsets is just two short blocks away. And in case the two minute walk to the beach is too much, there is free trolley service to and from the beach during the peak season.

This lovely 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home is complete with granite countertops, gorgeous furnishings, WIFI, and several flat screen TV's. On the first floor there is a master suite with a king bed and a walk in closet. A bath with double vanity, a walk in shower and a tub. Also on the first floor is the beautiful elegant living area with a 60' flat screen TV and DVD player, a powder room and a beautiful gourmet kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has a breakfast bar with 6 bar stools, granite counter tops, stainless appliances with everything you need to entertain your family and friends. The second floor has 3 bedrooms, one of which is a master suite with a bath and a walk in shower. The second bedroom has a king size bed with a flat screen TV and a walk out porch. The third bedroom has a bunk bed, twin over full with a twin pull out trundle. The second floor also has a loft area with a sofa sleeper, a flat screen TV and a walk out porch.

Great experience! Beautiful home! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was simply amazing! It was immaculate on the inside and was decorated beautifully with luxurious furniture. When we arrived we were stunned when we walked through the front door. It was very clean. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything. The owner was great to work with. She responded to every question that we had prior and during our stay promptly. It was perfectly located within a close walk to the beach. Shopping and restaurants were all minutes away! The community pool is huge and was perfect-our kids did not want to leave! We are so pleased with everything and cannot wait to return to Polka Dot Bikini next year. I would highly recommend this home!

Spring getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Destin and we loved this house and it's location! It was perfect for our family. It was exactly as pictured and I was very impressed with how clean and spacious it was. The pool located in the community is very well taken care of and big. It was never too crowded and our kids loved it. The beach is a short walk away (and I really mean it is a short walk). We loved this home and everything is has to offer. Definitely will be booking again!

The Fabulous Polka Dot!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this luxurious home was just that - a luxury stay at what literally feels like home away from home! It was very well maintained, clean, modern and simply fun! It is the perfect Destin vacation rental home- quick and easy walk to the beach and right near the community pool (which is the best I have seen yet!). The location of this home alone is a huge plus (it is close to everything!) but the home itself is gorgeous, beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable! The owners are friendly and amazing to work with. We loved our stay- this home was perfect for our family and we cant wait to return later this year!

The polka dot is a perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

One of the most luxurious and well maintained houses I have stayed on vacation. The owner was so friendly and went out of her way. The location was right by the beach and had everything you can possibly need near by. We loved our stay here and will go back every year.

Destin Polka Dot

  • 5 of 5

The photos of the home do not so it justice. When we opened the door, we were amazed by how nice, clean, modern and maintained it was. It is the closest home to the beach which was a breeze to walk to, even with two 3yr olds on tow. The house has everything and the community pool is one of the best I have seen at any resort. I just hope I can get a week next year. My family wants to make this our yearly summer vacation spot. The location is actually within walking distance of many stores and shops. Almost too close to Bass Pro. I went every day.

The beach is just a short 5 minute walk or you can hop on the trolley that will take you to the white powdery beach. You can walk to Destin Commons Shopping Mall as well as many restaurants and pubs. Be sure to visit Baytown Warf in Sandestin and Harborwalk village. Children will love Big Kahuna water park. Silver Sands outlet mall is not to be missed.
