About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bath Sleeps 4-6

As the last condo on beautiful Holiday Isle, East Pass Towers is your quiet vacation home. With only 55 units (and not all on the rental program), the grounds are very quiet yet conveniently located for shopping and dining. This is a large unit with 1400 square feet inside, plus an additional 500 square feet on the balconies. Each bedroom has a king size bed. The master contains a private balcony overlooking the beautiful Destin Harbor. The main balcony is accessible from the guest bedroom, the kitchen, and the living room and has a great view of the harbor, the pool and the Destin Pass. The couch pulls out into a queen size bed. Condo includes a wet bar with ice maker, built in computer work station, wireless internet, game table, and lots of games and books for the family to enjoy. A reserved covered parking space is available and storage unit contains beach chairs and toys for the little ones. Slip B-2 is available at East Pass Marina for an additional charge. Since purchasing the unit in 2013, we have made several improvements including new carpet, new paint throughout, and new living room furniture. We've also made sure the unit is fully stocked and has everything you need for home cooked meals (except for the groceries). This will be your home away from home.

About Kelli and Steve Dowell

Steve and I are both natives of the Fort Walton Beach and have spent countless days sailing and boating in the area. We moved away about 15 years ago, but return frequently to visit family and friends. We recently decided it was time to purchase a vacation/beach home. We truly consider this our second home and we strive to make it as comfortable as possible for all of guests.

Kelli and Steve Dowell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kelli and Steve Dowell chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We chose East Pass Towers because we would spend the summers on Norreiga Point, Crab Island, and the Destin Pass. This property has the views in every direction and is conveniently located to shopping and dining. During the summer months, the Destin WaterTaxi (850-499-6679), can pick you up at the public beach next to the condo and take you anywhere in the harbor.

What makes this condo unique

Conveniently located on the beach, Destin harbor, shopping, and dining. Our condo has a spectacular view of the harbor from the private master bedroom balcony. The large main balcony boasts views of the harbor, the pool, and the gulf.

Perfect location and owners were a pleasure to work with!

  • 5 of 5

This trip was our 5 year anniversary and much needed rest and relaxation time for us. Thanks to the owners and their condo that is exactly the experience we had. No matter what question or concerns we had the owners answered and response time was excellent. The location for us was perfect especially with crystal and jimmy provided quick and friendly water taxi service! The harbor walk was our get away and the seafood festival was fun! We could sit on the balcony and see and hear the bands playing, the sunrise on the harbor was beautiful! The hot tub was the perfect spot to watch the sunset! And the fireworks were actually on our anniversary so we watched them from the garage area....best view would be from the beach in front of the condo. We will be planning our next visit to destin soon and will hope this condo is available! Thank you to the owners for providing great service and a well stocked and beautifully decorated condo - my favorite was the sea turtle painting in the kitchen/dining room.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay in this beautiful condo. The views from every balcony were amazing. We loved sitting in the evening watching the boats in the harbor. It was perfect because it was private but still conveniently located to main action in the harbor walk area if we chose to do so. We did take advantage of utilizing the Water taxi to go over for dinner which was outstanding as we didn't have to fight the dinner time traffic. We loved everything about this place.

Above the Expectation

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in this condo and had a wonderful time. Everything was as described if not better. View of the fireworks is about the best you can get. Enjoyed watching all the fishing boats pull out every morning from both decks, and all other boats coming into and leaving the harbor. Very nice area for morning walks. The wife would have liked a larger beach area to get into the water, but what is there is quiet and a little private. I would defiantly stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I just returned from a stay in this condo in April, 2016. What a wonderful time we had. I agree with all the positive things that were said below in previous reviews of this condo so I will try to add some things that have not been said. But I do have to say, as others have, that you feel very much at home in this condo. The living room furniture is new and very comfortable as are the two king size beds. Others have mentioned the decks, but I want to point out how huge the decks are, with tables and chairs on both. Some units look out on the sound with the gulf beyond, but we prefer the view from this condo of the busy Destin harbor. You will see everything from a single person moving by on a paddle board to million dollar yachts. This is not your typical rectangular shaped condo. The building is octagonal, thereby offering interesting shaped condos. This unit wraps around one side of the building so that the rooms are in a semicircle with the kitchen in the middle. This affords rooms with many different shapes and angles. The owners have utilized these shapes effectively, so that every room has a large glass window or sliding glass door with those wonderful views from each. The first floor of the center atrium has a base with a series of pools with water flowing from one to the other and a very large circular skylight. We found there are more restaurants that served never-frozen seafood than any town in Florida or on the east coast and all within 12 minutes of the condo. We brought our boat and kept it in the owners slip. The dock master was very welcoming and helpful and offered fishing advise. The building is very safe with coded door locks on the condo, elevator and front gate.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed and magically located at the mouth of the Destin Harbor AND the East Pass, this condo is a true oasis from reality! Spent some precious "me time" there and hope to return as often as possible. Kelli and Steve have created a wonderfully beachy home away from home with this property and I cannot recommend it enough! Make sure to dance barefoot in the kitchen!

Over the Top

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the title says it all. This condo and location is simply over the top. If you are looking for a nice serene location with nice amenities you will find it in this condo. We really enjoyed our stay. The condo is everything one can imagine. Located close to nice places to eat and shop. We will return. Kellie was great to work with as well.
