About YAMS Destin

We are a recently retired military family. We met in Destin 25 years ago when we were both on active duty in the United States Air Force. The military has had us living all over the country but of all the places we've been, Destin is our favorite.

Why YAMS Destin chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We picked this property because we step off our deck onto the beach.

What makes this townhome unique

We are gulf front! We have a private beach that we share with 9 other units. There is nothing quite like sitting on your porch during a beautiful sunny day or a stormy rainy day and just watching and listening to the ocean.

We love it here and know you will too!

We've tried to make 'You Are My Sunshine' a place we love to stay. We've added new bedding, decor, and other conveniences. We plan to keep improving and updating the furnishings on an on-going basis.

Perfect location for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we booked, throughout our stay, to check out, we felt welcomed and cared for. YAMS is very clean and located right in the heart of Destiin allowing us to walk to dinner and dessert. The private beach is wonderful and so less crowded than the rest of the area. We loved our stay, all 9 of us, and you will, too.

So nice!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! From the amazing views, to the comfortable beds, to the impeccably clean condo itself, this rental exceeded all of our expectations. The private beach was the best! Cheryl and Mike made sure we had everything we needed. You can tell they take great pride in their condo and enjoy sharing it.

We love this beautiful townhouse. Located on the beach, we just walked out the back porch onto the white sand beach. Beautifully decorated, it has everything you need and lots of sleeping space. It is also convenient to great restaurants and shopping. We loved staying there!

Would not vacation at any other beach house!

  • 5 of 5

My vacation at YAMS was extremely enjoyable and definitely a vacation I will never forget. The accommodations were perfect- plenty of sleeping space and comfortable bedding. The entire townhouse was exceptionally clean and well taken care of. The beachside view was phenomenal and made the vacation spot even harder to leave. My entire family felt completely at home and hopeful to come back next year.

Way more beautiful than even the pictures show! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a long weekend in October and had an amazing time! It was an easy booking process and a seamless checkin. The photos are accurate on the inside and out. The pictures capture a beautiful place, but until you're there, you cannot appreciate how lovely it really is! The decks, all three of them, offer an up close panorama of the ocean. Nothing stands between you and the ocean. The rooms were very comfortable and clean, the kitchen was well equipped, and the location ideal! We were just a few minutes from all of Destin, yet in the evening sitting outside of the living room on the porch, it felt like we were alone with the ocean. We will be returning!

A cut above ...

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but glowing remarks for You Are My Sunshine (YAMS) beach house. What a fabulously kept, comfortably furnished, pleasantly decorated, solidly built, perfectly functioning home all in a very convenient location! It's the little things that make a house a home and your place certainly didn't disappoint. The moment we stepped inside the inviting decor and cleanliness made us feel AT THE BEACH! Everything (Every. Thing.) worked and worked to perfection. The AC units kept the entire place SO comfortable during our entire stay (even the top floor). The ceiling fans in every room are of the highest quality as are the kitchen appliances and TVs. The internet speed and cable as well as the bathrooms and showers exceeded our expectations. The beds more than delivered. The top floor bedroom beds were the favorites; very comfortable and most inviting. But the bottom (bed)room with the spectacular view is also hard to beat. We thoroughly enjoyed the dining area and spent quality time around the table as we did also the comfortable living area when we were not on the beach. And, of course, the beach is what it is and can't be improved upon and yet YAMS' easy access to and proximity of made our stay that much better and is hard to beat. SO CLOSE to the beach and SO PRIVATE. We literally felt as if we owned our own little piece of beach real estate. The convenient location within easy walking distance to pizzeria, gourmet coffee, snacks, ice and drinks all were an added plus. Needless to say we will be back and YAMS is not just first choice but only choice. YAMS ... you indeed were OUR sunshine!
