Why Steve - Owner chose Holiday Isle

Located in the upscale neighborhood of Holiday Isle....Destin's best location for white, sugar sand beaches, crystal emerald water, and great boating from your own private dock. The house is within minutes of all the restaurants, bars, water parks, shopping, groceries, etc., yet is situated on a quiet, residential peninsula of land between the Destin Harbor and Gulf of Mexico. The Holiday Isle Beach is much less crowded and the private gated beach access and Boardwalk is located right at the beginning of our street. This is a beautiful 3800 square foot custom built home with an open floor plan, plenty of baths, private pool, new 90' boat dock on the water, and a short walk to the beach access. You can even take a Water Taxi from our dock to your favorite restaurant, bar, or beach.

What makes this house unique

On the Water, Private Pool (Heat Option$360/week), 8'x90' Private Boat Dock with composite decking wharf, very close to the beach, the Holiday Isle private gated beach access and boardwalk is right at the beginning of our street, and the home is only minutes to all of the restaurants, bars, shops, groceries, stores, amusement, golf, fishing, etc. You can even take a Water Taxi from our dock to your favorite restaurant, bar, and additional beach areas.

Memories Were Made!

  • 5 of 5

We could not of chosen a better place to stay. Everything was absolutely incredible, from the to fully equipped kitchen, Pool , Dock to the clean and well maintained property ! The house is decorated wonderfully, with all the Bedrooms very comfortable and nicely furnished!

We had 3 families and everyone had such a incredible stay. The Pool was one of our favorites as we were able to enjoy in the evenings watching the Kids swim after Dinner! I brought my 24 ft. boat could not of worked out better at the Dock, with a nice Cleaning Station with power and water! We were able to access the Bay in minutes to go Fishing , Crab island and the Thursday Night Firework Show. Its location is perfect for all the good restaurants.

Plenty of parking for the Vehicles.

We've booked it again in 2018 and Cant wait to return!

Memories were Made!!

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had three families for a great birthday weekend and everything could not have been more perfect. A gorgeous house tucked away right in the middle of all the shopping and dining with all of the amenities you could think of. A gourmet kitchen with a huge deck to dine outdoors where we grilled most of our meals and the pool was heated for us all to enjoy. The kids claimed the entire first floor family room and declared we would not see them until Sunday! But the best part was walking through the neighborhood to the private beach entrance where we enjoyed the waves and searched for shells, put our feet in the water, and watched the sunset. Amazing. We are already checking our calendars for next year!!!

45th Wedding Anniversary Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had an even better time on our second visit here! (We came for our 40th anniversary 5 years ago.) Thanks for the heads-up about the Thursday night HarborWalk festivities. The live music was great and were able to see the fireworks show from the table at A.J.'s Restaurant. Taking the water taxi was a great option, since parking was at a premium there. We rented a pontoon boat to go out to Crab Island, and it was great to load and unload from the back dock. The Destin beach is always a plus - the sand and surf are so beautiful! All of the grandchildren loved the pool and the gameroom. We even celebrated the 2-yr. old's birthday - got some beach pictures and some in front of your lovely home. A tripod with a remote made it a lot easier this time. Cannot thank you enough for allowing us to all stay in the same place. Oh, and of course my husband took 2 fishing trips - 3 grandchildren on the Sweet Jody, along with 4 adults. It just seemed appropriate to see "Finding Dory" at the movie theatre in Destin Commons, which is a very nice mall. It really was a fun vacation! Many thanks!!!

Great House for Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home for our September family vacation. We had 8 adults and 3 small children, the house fit us perfectly. We loved the pool and the beautiful view of the water. We loved the private dock, the water taxi picked us up and dropped us off right in front of the home. Our only complaint was that the beach was a bit further walk than we would have like (especially with small children) and the beds (besides the master) were much too small. They were advertised as queens but they were doubles. Other than that, we loved this house!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great time at our home! We pride ourselves in providing exactly what is described on our site. All of our beds are king and queens, except for the full size pyramid bunk beds in the first floor bedroom. We will also be adding another king bed in our second floor master bedroom this winter. We provide a large beach wagon and stroller for our guest in the garage. The Holiday Isle gated beach access and boardwalk is located right at the beginning of our street. We hope you and your family can stay with us again!

Fabulous Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We took the first family vacation in many years, 4 generations and 11 people. The on-line pictures do not do justice to this amazing home. We expected a lot, but got much more. The backyard pool became the family gathering place. It was a short walk to the beach, but the kids spent more time in the pool than at the beach. The downstairs game and living area was absolutely perfect for the two teenage girls. Plenty of parking and a guest garage to store beach stuff and golf clubs. Could not ask for more and if we ever get the chance to go back to Destin, we will do everything in our power to stay in this great home again.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time for our families to stay in this house. We had a great time, made lots of great memories. The house is just as nice as the pictures show. Having a pool to cool off sure made the afternoon heat more bearable. The location is great for trips to the beach and having a place to leave your boat in the water sure is nice. We look forward to our next trip.
