About Mark Jones

This is my second vacation rental. I am retired from owning my own Marketing Research Company in Roswell GA. Being semi retired I wanted to spend more time at the beach. While not using my homes I thought of sharing them with other's. I hope that you enjoy my home as much as I do.

Mark Jones purchased this house in 2015

Why Mark Jones chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

I love this gated beach community and the convenience to the beach with the privacy that I wanted in the evenings with lots of space and the private pool. The clubhouse facilities are also among the very best in all of Destin - huge waterfall pool, tennis, modern workout gym, theatre room and more!

What makes this house unique

What you are unlikely to find in other beach rental homes, The Olive Palm is located in a prestigious gated community, and comes with it's own pool plus complete renter access to the fabulous clubhouse that includes gym, spa, tennis, playground huge pool/jacuzzi and more. And though the clubhouse and beach are only short walks away, your rental includes use of a $15K 6-seater golf cart that is completely street legal and can be used to cruise to the beach, local shops and restaurants. As local renters charge $500+/wk for a golf cart of this kind, I believe the rental value of the Olive Palm with its many upgrades and amenities is among the best you will find in all of Destin!

Very nice home.

  • 4 of 5

Mark was very accommodating. The house is in a great gated neighborhood. Very easy to get to the beach with the golf cart that comes with the house. We had eight adults and three toddlers for a week. The rooms where big enough for the kids to sleep in the room with their parents and plenty of living space down stairs for us all. It was great to have the small private pool as well as the club house pool. I would recommend this to anyone interested.

A very comfortable and relaxing vacation at Destiny, Destin.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever with our friends from France this year staying at Olive Palm, Destiny.

The house is very spacious and comfortable for the 8 of us. Our guests were quite impressed with the amenities and location of the house.

The beach is a short walk away and with the golf cart, we could bring chairs and umbrellas without getting sand in our cars !!

The kitchen is fully equipped with a over sized dishwasher that allowed us to dine-in a few times.

We also enjoyed using the pool and the jacuzzi at the club house.

All in all, thanks to Mark, we had a wonderful vacation and will surely come back next year. Mid September is a nice time to come with no traffic, no crowds, plenty of parking spaces at the beach and the water is still warm and beautiful !

Mark has been more than helpful, very prompt in getting back to me with any questions that I had.

Thanks again Mark !

Great Location and Beautiful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful time at this house. I would recommend anyone to stay there. Based on the location, the pool and the golf cart our stay couldn’t had been better. The house is well stock with beach towels and kitchen utensils. The rooms are spacious enough that you are not on top of one another, there was 5 of us – 2 couples and 1 single person. Couldn’t beat having a washer and dryer to keep the sand off. The pool temperature was beautiful not chilling nor hot – just right. We could have walked to the beach, but why when you have a golf cart!!

Great quiet location for our family's stay

  • 5 of 5

Having never visited Destin before, we were nervous about picking a location to stay! This house is very comfortable and in a nice gated community. The beach is about a 10 minute walk, and there is a pedestrian tunnel so there's no need to cross the busy beachfront road. We found that we really couldn't park the golf cart to go to the beach most of the week, due to a lack of parking in the Crab Shack area parking lot, but it was still useful for dropping off/picking up gear and getting to the community pool (which is very nice!) Owner is very responsive and helpful! If you're going to Destin for the first time and it's summer, be prepared to spend a lot of time sitting in bridge traffic on your way in - looks like just about every property in the area turns over on a Saturday. A local gave us the tip that everyone can use the SunPass lane in the tollgate - they send you a bill in the mail, apparently- so don't sit waiting in the cash lanes like we did! Pack a cooler with your first-morning things and save the grocery trip for at least Sunday, too - it's insane at the grocery store Saturday night.

Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost I was to say that mark was great and answered every question I had for a first time renter. The property was lovely and spacious. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for our stay and the golf cart was great for a ride around the community and down to the beach. Will definitely rent from mark again.

Perfect vacation for my family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Destin! The house was perfect for us! It was plenty of room and plenty of privacy for everyone. Having our own pool was a bonus and my family enjoyed the extras at the clubhouse! We all agreed that we would definitely do this again! One last thing, Mark was so good about getting back to me whenever I had a question!
