About Louise Traver
We are a career military family. Wes is a retired Air Force Chief Master Sergeant; I was born and raised in Wales, United Kingdom. After traveling the world for over 29 years we arrived on the Emerald Coast in 2005, fell in love with the area and decided to make it home. After settling in and realizing just how wonderful our new home is we decided to go into the vacation rental business and share this 'slice of paradise' with others. We’re local, hands-on owners who will pull out all the stops to enhance your vacation experience. We believe in and do everything possible to live up to our motto “we sell memories.”
Louise Traver purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Louise Traver chose Holiday Isle
Why did we choose Magnolia House? That’s easy; the view. When we first looked at the condo we were mesmerized by the view. We have other properties on the Gulf of Mexico but the view over the East Pass is one-of-a-kind. Once hooked on the view we started to investigate the rest of the development. We discovered the lure of the jetties, the availability of the water taxi, the amenities and the all around great location of the Destin Pointe. Holiday Isle is perfectly situated and has everything necessary for a great vacation on the Gulf of Mexico. We found it and believe it’s one of the best spots in Destin. Now we’d like to share it with you. Come visit us and find out for yourself.

Absolutely amazing view, that which cannot be captured in any photograph. I tried my best!
Quiet, all the amenities- close enough to the touristy stuff, but far enough away (can see it from the balcony). We saw fish, dolphin, and lots of boat activity. Access to two beaches, two pools, gas grills, covered parking, etc, etc, etc, etc. But, THE VIEW!! The view.
The place was nice. Love the community. J.D is the best!! Alan at the beach is Awesome!
The pool hours are are not the best. Some people like to swim earlier or later. Our condo itself was nice. I was disappointed in the bathtub I love to take baths but the tub was peeling and she said it was tricky . ( peeling is getting fixed) It was stocked with all the supplies you need to get started. I loved having a washer and dryer.
If you want beach front this one is not for you. If you want Ocean view this one is for you. We missed our king size bed the room has a queen. Love the grills just make sure if you are going to grill to bring your own grilling utensils. The beach you go to we watched dolphins all day almost everyday we were there and it is absolutely beautiful!! A must eat is Tailfins and Dewy Destin the view is amazing. If you want pizza Landsharks is a must. We had a great time!!
It's All About the View
Beautiful condo in the perfect location. Very clean and comfortable. Close to everything but away from all the craziness of traffic/noise. The view is amazing of the Gulf of Mexico and East Pass. We watched the ships/boats coming and going all day and dolphins daily. The tram was appreciated but the walk to the beach and beach set up was not bad at all. However, the trek through the dunes to the East Pass beach that you see from the balcony did require some effort. Destin is definitely the most beautiful spot in Northwest Florida.
Unbeatable view, but could be cleaner condo
Cannot beat the view of the gulf and inlet to Destin Bay. Sundowns are great! Nice condo. Clean bathroom, somewhat upgraded unit. Very dusty floors, countertops, tables, etc. and crumbs all over when we got there - not sure when it was cleaned last. Slider windows were dirty - not sure the last time they were cleaned either. We cleaned up to enjoy our stay. Light fabric vertical blinds in bedroom didn't block the light given off by the light in the outside hallway. Owner was easy to work with.
We're sorry to hear about the cleanliness of the unit. This is not the standard that we expect from our cleaning crew. We've discussed your comments with the Cleaner and have issued her a new checklist to insure the condo is cleaned to a high standard for every guest. I wish you would have let us know when you arrived. We would have personally came over to fix the issues. Thanks for the input on the blinds. We're going to install blackout drapes to make sure the bedroom is dark enough for a good nights sleep. I'm glad to hear you had a good time. We take the comfort of our guests very seriously. Hope to have you as a guest again.
I have never stayed in this part of Destin before so I was a little bit hesitant. But the Magnolia House won me over!
If you appreciate a beautiful but constantly changing view, you will love this place! The condo is beautifully decorated and well stocked. We did cook a few times and found what we needed.
When we were inside I had a hard time staying off the balcony. But luckily you can still see a gorgeous view from the living area and kitchen! I miss that view!!
The pool was perfect. I appreciated it being heated so we were able to use it even when the sun and temperature were down.
Enjoyed the tram to the beach and back (we also walked it once we knew the way). Love the neighborhood feel.
Only regret was it was too short a stay. I wasn't ready to leave!
Hope to be back soon!
Thank you, Louise!
Nice finishes, beautiful view.
The first thing you notice when you open the door is the amazing view. The pool and hot tub are awesome, the shuttle to the beach, everything. Wonderful place to stay.
