Located on pedestrian friendly Scenic 98, you can walk down to the beach to catch a sunset or take a relaxing bike ride.

All Destin Palms Vacations guests receive a free Destin Palms VIP Perks Card that provides free passes to the area's most popular attractions. Each day of your stay, you will receive one free adult pass to a charter fishing excursion, a dolphin cruise aboard the SeaBlaster speed boat, and 18-holes of golfing at three different Sandestin courses.

The free passes are per reservation and not per guest. They are non-cumulative. Guests can use passes at different activities on the same day. For instance, a guest could play 18 holes of golf for free in the morning and then go on a free dolphin cruise on the same afternoon. The card also entitles you to do an activity more than once for free. For example, if you wanted to golf daily, each day of your stay (excluding day of departure), one person in your party could golf for free. Free golf and charter fishing excursions are available year-round. The dolphin cruise operates March-October. Perks are not available to monthly renters.

We also have additional golf carts and bikes for daily or weekly rental at a discounted rate to our guests. Please contact us for availability.

Leave your worries behind and book Destiny Escape for your family's next dream vacation!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was perfect for our vacation with our extended family. A total of 8 of us and plenty of room. The pictures don't do the home justice as its beautiful and very homey. The good - wifi, pool access, items provided for us during our stay, shuffleboard, golf cart. Needs TLC - the small fridge in bar area as well as outside need replaced. If not going to replace removal would be better. The piece under the grill needs repaired looks as if they used magnets to try and put together not working well. Table Tennis needs lots of TLC. One of The men in our house went out and got brackets and fixed it or attempted. Suggestions - lots of different things you offer to do in the gated community. You share a map of the community along with things to do but would be helpful if you labeled where each was at. For example, we wanted to use the movie room, but we didn't know where it was or how to reserve until the day prior to leaving. Again perfect for us.

Reviewer Comments:

Location of home in the subdivision was perfect. Out your back yard is the pool,tennis court and Clubhouse. Home was very spacious and nicely laid out. Only cons would be that the cleaning company was not very detailed. And the carpet in the bedrooms could be cleaned professionally. Would definitely stay again and thoroughly enjoyed the golf cart.

Nice house but NOT for a vacation

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved the house but way too many rules with the HOA. As soon as we arrived we were overwhelmed with the notes and rules posted on the walls and at the entry way with warnings of a penalty or fees for not following specific rules even down to how and when to set out the garbage. We were on vacation and did not appreciate all of the ridiculous rules. If were over 65 and went to bed at 9 PM it may have been a better fit for us. We were told upfront that we would be charged a $185 cleaning fee as part of the rental fee but in addition, they had a note posted by the grill that the cleaning fee for that was extra $50.00. We cleaned up the house before leaving and thought we were good but sure enough three days after getting home my card was charged $50 for HOA fine. When I called to find out details I was told it was for being out past 10 PM on our back porch. No ticket not phone call or anything only a $50 charge three days after leaving. I tried to work it out with Destin Palms but they were NO help. I asked if we could get some money back from the HOA since the hot tub out at the community pool was broke the whole time we were there with a "out of order"note posted, I was told sorry but No. I would not stay here again and I will never use Destin Palms Vacations again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We manage several homes in residential communities that have HOA rules and regulations related to quiet hours, parking, and trash removal. Your citation was actually for parking on the side of the road after community hours. We regret you received a citation.

Again perfect for us. I agree with another review on having the owners go in for a week, staying and giving some TLC.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! Both of the refrigerators were new this season before your rental. The grill mechanism has also been replaced. Unfortunately, some people don't take care of things the way that we would like them too. That makes it hard to keep things in perfect repair. We would love to have you back, please give us a call if you would like to discuss this further. - Destin Palms Management

Property manager was super, taking car of minor things quickly.

Great location and near beach, we did a lot of beach walking

Nice big house and clean, the carpets could be shampooed

Kitchen well stocked

Ice machines did not work and should be replace or repaired-we didn't need as the refrigerator machine worked fine

Golf cart was nice when hauling to beach, probable a great asset in the summer

Reviewer Comments:

Our time at your home was absolutely wonderful. Great bonding time, lots of shopping, great dining out as well as being able to cook. I have 3 suggestions. The carpet needs replacing, the sofas as well. When we sat on them, we sank very low. Also, the bed in the 2nd bedroom, the framing around the bed makes it very awkward getting in and out.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is beautiful. Lots of room and enjoyed the screened in porch area. Just a quick walk to the pool and play ground. The golf cart was great to take to the beach. We really enjoyed staying there and look forward to coming back. The property management personnel was wonderful and very helpful when we arrived early to make sure we could have access to the house sooner. I recommend this home for families and friends for a great vacation and relaxation.
