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 Destin

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, you are welcome to rent our 6-seater golf cart that is completely street legal and can be used to cruise to the beach, local shops and restaurants. I truly believe that the Olive Palm with its many upgrades and amenities is among the best you will find in all of Destin!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual family vacation here for Thanksgiving week. The house is much larger than you realize. The kitchen is well stocked and the walk to the beach was easy. My husband and I took daily walks to the beach which was less than a mile away.

There are tv's in the living room, and all the bedrooms which made it easy for down time for the kids after a long day of having fun.

We had a wonderful time and the house was perfect for our family. We would love to stay there again.

Great property! Our family of 12 people total had a wonderful Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 5 adults and 7 teenagers, had plenty of space for comfort and relaxation during our Spring Break 2017! The weather was wonderful, and although the pool wasn't heated, the water was still warm enough for a few to enjoy! The outside space around the pool as well as the screened in porch was utilized everyday! The golf cart was especially convenient for the multiple trips to and from the beach daily! Beautiful neighborhood with friendly neighbors and the Community clubhouse and extra amenities were a bonus. The homeowner Mark was very friendly and accessible for any questions. Would recommend!!

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.
