About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

If you have any specific questions or need booking assistance, send me an email or text message or call me.

We are ready for fall 2016 through fall 2017 with the addition of cable televisions in all bedrooms and a smart TV in the master bedroom. Secure wifi is not shared with other condos for quicker access. The video was produced prior to these updates so if you have any questions, please call.

Waterview Towers is a quiet, gated complex on the Destin Harbor. The fishing has been reported the best in decades so you'll find plenty of action in the Gulf or from the shore. Golf courses are open year round and are always ready to accommodate the guests. Call today to find your place in the sun!

Experience the best vacation ever in a spacious top floor unit overlooking Destin Harbor and the marina. Holiday Isle is the quiet corner of Destin, conveniently close to all the fun and activities, but away from the traffic and congestion.

Tastefully decorated, you can entertain friends and family but find enough space to still 'get away'. Security code needed to enter the parking area, pool, and unit. You can even save gas since the Destin Shuttle runs all year to local attractions with a stop just yards away from the gate.

The living room has vertical blinds (so you can enjoy the full vista of the Harbor) and a grill has been added just off the parking lot corner for everyone to use.

The balcony has chairs and tables for relaxing outside along with a bistro set for full view of the Harbor.

You may begin your day in the gym equipped with exercise and cardiovascular equipment. Then sip coffee and enjoy your breakfast on the balcony overlooking the tennis court and Destin Harbor.

East Pass slips by the beach area and only 100 yards away is the Blue Lagoon for swimming and snorkeling. Gulf Shore Drive allows easy access to busy Hwy 98 at the light where you’ll find Target and Winn-Dixie. New in summer 2015 is Hobby Lobby.

Internet access is provided and is now secured with a password.

Our boat slip is available for additional charge. Boats are limited to 36' by order of the DEP (sorry!) You can rent a pontoon in the Harbor then motor over to get all your gear on board- no need to carry all those coolers, towels, beach gear, and food with you!

Waterview Towers is a mixed residential and rental community. Guest groups should have at least one individual over 25 years of age who will act as the adult representative of the group. You may be asked to provide proof of meeting this requirement.

About Michele Abernathy

I have lived around the Destin Emerald Beach area since 1956. Traveling with my military family gave me exposure to many vacation destinations around the world - none compare to Destin for activities, food, and attractions. My desire is for your family to experience the unparalleled amenities of the Destin area and to begin your family memories here.

Michele Abernathy purchased this condo in 1998

Why Michele Abernathy chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Holiday Isle offers the best of Destin without the overcrowding you find along Highway 98. Gulf Shore Drive meets Highway 98 at the Target and Winn Dixie shopping areas with a traffic activated light. The area is less crowded and can feel downright secluded during the 'off' months.

The property has a beautiful view of Destin harbor, It's well kept and extremely well stocked for a vacation rental. The boat slip was a HUGE plus for us, we only used our car a couple times all week the rest of the time we hopped on the boat to go to restaurants, etc. The pool and hot tub were great and when the temperature drop the staff turn the heaters on in the pool.

We stay in about 6 vacation rentals a year and this has been my best overall experience with a vacation rental. We'll definitely be coming back to this property when we visit the Destin area!

Very relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Destin and by far our best beach vacation. The condo was clean and beautiful and very spacious. The building location provided privacy from the tourism yet was close enough to enjoy. Michele was very easy to work with, helpful, accommodating and friendly. The views of the harbor provided priceless relaxing balcony memories and stories. The beach water was so clear and pristine in the early hours you thought you were in the Caribbean, however later in the day after all the boats continually going in and out of the harbor the water turned a greenish color. Regardless from 10-65 years old, no one in our party was disappointed. We will definitely be back to the Waterview Towers.

Confortable Condo with nice boat lift/slip

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this unit with a beautiful view of the harbor. Although we had a couple of issues with the dishwasher and A/C the Owner was very quick to resolve the problem. We have been renting in the area for several years and have never had as accommodating and helpful Owner as this unit offers. The lift provided with the boat slip was an added plus for our 23 foot CC boat. I don't know the capacity of the lift so if you have a considerably larger boat you may want to check. Definitely on our short list of units to rent...

Owner's Response: Destin has so much to offer every family. Waterview Towers location gives easy access to the water and land activities. I understand the draw to come back again and again.
