Walk to the beach and 2 restaurants along the beach! Located just 2 miles from Destin Commons and 2 miles from the Silver Sands Outlet Mall! Amenities include 2 pools, tennis court, basketball goal, and a private beach cabana with lounge chairs, picnic tables, and restrooms right on the beach!

What makes this house unique

The most unique feature is the neighborhood beach cabana located on the beach with restrooms, picnic tables, and lounge chairs!

Car: recommended

Though the beaches are the best attraction, Golf, Shopping, Theme Parks, and Restaurants are a big draw too! We are centrally located to everything! The Destin Commons Mall is 2 miles to the West and The Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall is 2 miles to the East! Restaurants including ethnic foods are plentiful! Don't miss the seafood though! The local fish have a mild taste and are usually prepared nicely wherever you dine. Lots of activities for the kids too! They'll love the water park and theme parks! Lots of activities in a small area! Golf is everywhere!

Notes:
Nice home in gated community very close to the beach! The neatest thing about this neighborhood is the Private Beach Cabana right on the beach about 1/4 mile from the house! It has a short order cafe/bar during the season, picnic tables, chairs, and restrooms right on the beach!!! No other neighborhood along our stretch of beach has this! There is also a free tram service to and from the beach during the Summer but the walk is a short 5 minutes! Pull the wagon to the beach too!

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 10 booked the Martinique for a 5 night say in June 2017. With grandchildren busy with baseball schedules, we were not able to make a week long stay work this year, so it was wonderful that the Martinique can be rented for less than 7 nights. The realty company managing the property was wonderful. They let us know as soon as the house was clean, which happened to be earlier than expected on our day of arrival and worked out great, since our kids had early flights into the area that day. The house was perfect for us. There is a master on the upper and lower levels, with 2 bedrooms on the second floor that share a bathroom. Our grandkids loved the bunk beds. The house was clean and the beach cart was much appreciated. There are a few beach toys left behind from other guests, as well. My husband and I drove down in our van and brought another cart and beach umbrellas and beach chairs and toys and such. It is pricey to rent the beach chairs/umbrellas at the beach ($40 per day from what we were told and we would have needed 4 or 5 of those) The house is just a block from the larger pool. The kids were able to enjoy that pool for just a few minutes one evening but the adults did not get the opportunity due to Tropical Storm Cindy's arrival (no fault of the Martinique folks). The house is a good little jaunt to the beach with all the beach carts and such but not terrible. There is a shuttle that you can ride, as well. You walk down to the entrance of the complex and then cross a road to get to the beach. Again, not terrible. We had little ones and they made it fine. The house is a little dated and could use some updates but we were comfortable. If you are looking for upscale and granite, this is not your place. But if you want comfort and convenience to the beach, this property works. There is a Dollar General within walking distance as well, which is very helpful. I'd definitely stay in this property ag

Reviewer Comments:

The Martinique was nice for our 2 family vacay. 5 Min or less walk to the beach- Plus there's a golfcart that runs back and forth to cut that walk time down even more. The pools are small for the number of houses and guests that are in and out of the property but they were clean. The house was clean but definitely needs some updating. There was plenty of space for our 10 to sleep- the bunk beds on the 3rd level need some tlc, bigtime. They are so squeaky and loud. Our kids slept on them one night and that's it- they kept everyone in that room awake with every toss and turn. The balconys on every lever we're pretty sweet- the side screen porch needs some told as well- over all the house in nice but needs some love- it could be amazing. We enjoyed our stay but probably won't be going back to the same house.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we had a great experience. The house was as mostly as described - good layout, comfortable, well-stocked kitchen, etc. Beach "toys" were a nice bonus. Beach chairs and towel would be a great additional "bonus" if possible (for groups like us who fly rather than drive to Destin). The only complaint that we had were some dirty dishes in the cupboards and dishwasher issues (the dishwasher did not drain properly, so there was standing, stinky water in it most of the time).
