First, a little history about us…Why is it named Beach Buck? We started with VRBO around 8 years ago with our 1st of 7 lodges in Gatlinburg, Buckhead Lodge. For years, our guests have asked if we had anything to offer them at the beach. Well, when we lost our 1st lodge, Buckhead Lodge in the wildfires, 2016, we decided to give them a beach option.

Located in the heart and soul of Destin, Dunes of Destin is a private, gated community. This upscale community is one of the most exclusive vacation communities Destin has to offer! Amenities include a private beach, a community pool, gazebos and a private lake with beautiful fountains that are lighted and look stunning at night. This community is beautifully maintained and lovely to stroll at any time of day.

About Tari Furey

My name is Tari. While I am most familiar with the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN area, the same things that guests want there can be and are applied in Destin. :) So that's what we've done.

Tari Furey purchased this house in 2017

Why Tari Furey chose Destin

The home is HUGE! Around 8,000 ft under roof after you figure the balconies and porches and weight room and it is on its own private beach. Destin is becoming a mini-Pigeon Forge area with similar attractions there as found in Pigeon Forge so it's a nice connection for our guests.

What makes this house unique

An elevator to all 4 floors, beach front home, gated community, 2 miles to Destin Harbor.

Amazing house and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beach Buck Destin in June - a total of 19 family members ranging in age from 2 to 88! The house, pool and beach were all more than perfect!! We had everything we could have asked for and more. We loved having the room to gather together for meals in the dining area and in the living room and around the pool, while still having our own private space to get away for quiet with the ample bedrooms and private baths.

The elevator and the ramp across the dune were both so helpful for my 88 year grandmother, as well as for me when hauling a 2 year old and all that comes with her around the house and to the beach! The newly installed pool and hot tub were heaven. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to spend a week with loved ones.

The owners were friendly, helpful and very responsive any time we had questions. Thank you for everything!

Fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and has everything you could possibly ask for in a vacation home. We had 22 people ranging in age from 3-83 and we all loved it. The pool was great and the beach is right at your back door. The beach is private for Destin Dunes so it is not crowded at all. The owner is wonderful to work with as well. The play room was so much fun for the kids. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

Beach Buck Destin is just absolutely gorgeous and we can’t say enough wonderful things.

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay. Even though the pool didn’t open until our last evening we had absolutely no complaints. The owner, Tari, was wonderful to work with and we thank her for sharing her beautiful home with our family for a week. We plan to make this a yearly tradition, bringing all 4 of our grown children, their spouses and our adorable grandchildren. We had such a wonderful time and hated to leave. Thank you so much, we look forward to next year.

Owner's Response: Uuuuugh! I know!!!!! The pooool! :( We tried so hard to get it open earlier in your stay. At least you got a dip in before you had to leave. It was my pleasure getting to know you and being able to work with you!

We chose this house for our annual girls trip. There were 11 of us and the house accommodated us perfectly. There are 5 ocean front suites with fabulous views. The house was stocked with everything we needed and the game room made for some really fun late nights!

Once the pool is completed it will be the ultimate getaway for large groups. Tari was a wonderful hostess and provided us with all the information you could ever need along the way. I would definitely recommend this house!!
