About the property

4 Bedroom Villa Gulf Views, 50 Steps to Beach 2.5 Baths

Amazing views can be seen from this villa! SPRING and SUMMER 4 bedrooms are available NOW. Each floor in villa is large enough to fit a family so extended families or friends can rent with together; 2 full kitchens and living areas, and much less expensive than renting one home.

**NOTE: You can rent just one floor/2 bedrooms. Each has separate entrances and are fully private condos.

We have the Best Views of the GULF from our Villa - AND REVIEWS! Also see our Facebook page Destiny Beach Villas and Twitter: Destiny Beach Villa!

Villa has private entrances. There is a secure lock out door between the floors for easy access inside the villa.

We are located less than one and a half miles from the Destin Commons Mall with new additional shops (H&M, Boston Proper, Chipolte, World of Beer) , the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Sandestin/ Grand Boulevard, theaters and minutes from the top Destin restaurants, several golf courses, and off shore fishing. The Destin Harbor is 6 miles west of the villa.

Vacation in Destin's most exclusive community! Magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Destiny can be enjoyed from this charming villa nestled only 50 steps from Florida's most beautiful beach. You will be impressed by this luxurious neighborhood and outstanding beach and lakefront setting unparalleled throughout Destin! The villa is centrally located in Crystal Beach, across from the James Lee Park.

Note: Not all Villas have beach views. WE DO! We are a non- smoking villa. Pets are not allowed.

About Laura and Gregg Kirby, Owners since 2004

We absolutely LOVE Destin and bought this villa in 2004 so we would always have a beach home for our large extended family. We live only one hour away and manage the villa ourselves. We pride ourselves on personal service and treat our renters how we would want to be treated. Our villa is exactly how we would want a vacation rental to be if we were renting it ourselves - clean, casual, updated and FUN!

Why Laura and Gregg Kirby, Owners since 2004 chose Destin

We have such great views from our villa. So many of our guests that have stayed multiple times in the villas say this is their favorite. Over 60% of our renters are repeat renters!

Destin has SO MUCH to do! The beaches are incredible - pure white sand and the Gulf is clear and beautiful! We love to walk to restaurants close by. There is a 10 foot walking, running, biking path that runs along the Scenic Hwy 98 for over 6 miles. You can ride to the Henderson Beach State Park or the Outlet Mall!

What makes this villa unique

One point of contact - the OWNERS! Views and location are unbeatable. We LOVE to sit out on the front porch and relax. There is always something to see: a dolphin, a beautiful boat passing by or visitors walking/biking down Scenic Hwy 98 ten foot sidewalks. It is not a busy area and very laid back. No high rises, less crowds.

***Always speak with an owner when renting a property!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Laura & Greg,

We had the best time in your villa. We are so sad to leave tomorrow. Your villa is perfect. Between the ocean and the lake, each one of us always had something wonderful to do. The guys fished everyday and caught over 100 fish. They released them all except the ones a friendly heron snatched. :)

This was our first time in Destin, but after crusin the whole area, we think we stayed in the best spot. We spent more time on the front balcony than anywhere else. The view is ever changing and always interesting. Thank you for a restful week.

Best Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay! The whole villa is very clean, and there was plenty of space for 4 adults and 3 young children (we rented it all!). The views are fantastic, and proximity to the beach is just as described. The pool is great too!! Everything was very well thought out by the owners. I especially loved all the hooks placed throughout the villa to hang towels and swimsuits on so they didn't end up on the floor. The lake is serene, and we enjoyed sitting on the back balcony at night listening to the frogs, and watching the turtles in the mornings. The surrounding area is relatively quiet, with less traffic than Hwy 98. But, it was nice to be so close to all the shopping and grocery stores too. Laura was very responsive from day one, and we even got to meet her! We will be back, no doubt!

3rd year in a row!

  • 5 of 5

This has been our third time to stay at this lovely villa. The owners (who are delightful to work with) just painted the villa's exterior and the master bedroom which really updated the space. We love the balcony on the front where we spent many mornings sipping coffee and watching the dolphins swim by. My boys also love fishing in the lake behind us which also is a beautiful view. The master bedroom is delightful, It has its own half bath, king size bed and a tv what else could you ask for! The beach is just across the way and is easy to get to and if I may say the most beautiful beach we have ever seen! The villa is in a great location close to wonderful places to eat. The pool is also an easy walk from the villa, my boys liked to take a quick dip in after a day at the beach! We enjoyed snuba diving, deep sea fishing, shopping, go carts, relaxing on the beach and yoga on the beach. This villa is the perfect space. We will continue to come back for years to come.

Girl's Weekend Get~A~Way

  • 5 of 5

We had the entire villa (Both upstairs and downstairs) and had a wonderful time. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked, bathrooms are spacious, plenty of space to spread out and enjoy this perfect beach vacation spot! The beach access is easy and the pool a very short easy walk. Because this is a corner unit, you have very easy access to the parking lot and not noisy neighbors. The view of the beach from both balconies/porches are beautiful for watching sunsets and the back of the villa overlooking the lake offers beautiful sunrises. The villa is close to incredible restaurants and a short distance to outlet and Destin Commons shopping. THe perfect location for families seeking beach vacations and for girls get a ways!

Such a wonderful rental property! The ocean view is magnificent - just across the way. Loved sitting on the balcony and watching and listening to the surf. The rooms were very inviting and home-like. Kitchen was fully stocked. The beds were very comfortable. Would definitely recommend this rental to friends!
