We are retired with lots of family! Rick is Retired from NASA and Vanderbilt University. We moved from Brentwood TN two years ago and are currently living in Huntsville Al for part of the year and here in Destin during the Winter months. We were both born and raised in Alabama.
The Owner purchased this house in 2003
We both visited the beach growing up with our families and then in adult years continued to visit bringing our own families to enjoy these beautiful beaches. As we were looking for a place to buy, we were brought to Destin Pointe and immediately were sold on this beautiful house and neighborhood. It is one of Destin's best kept secrets.
The Nautilus and Destin Pointe provides a relaxing atmosphere, family friendly setting, safe environment, trolley service to and from beach; convenient location to grocery store, Target, entertainment and restaurants. The small pool right outside the kitchen door is perfect for small children and adults. Rooftop observatory is a unique feature in Destin Pointe because it's height gives views of the gulf, east pass and the harbor, allowing for most awesome sunrises and sunsets. Join our captain for a sunset cruise on our sailing yacht, The Space Dancer.
We stayed at the Nautilus over the New Year! It was awesome! The house is beautiful and looks just as good for real as in the pictures. The house was clean and well stocked. Destin Pointe is a real hidden treasure in Destin with it's private beaches, location and quiet surroundings. This is our second time to stay here and we will be back!
We have been going to Destin for 36 years and have stayed in condos and other houses but never stayed in a home that was so beautiful and well maintained. We have stayed at the Nautilus for 4 years and have already booked for next year. The Nautilus is an excellent property - it is a beautiful home that is kept super clean. We love the proximity to the beach and the pool in the backyard is an added bonus. Rick and Brenda are so helpful and great to work with. Everything you could possibly want is nearby. We have also taken advangtage of the free sailboat ride which our grandson loved. I can't imagine finding a better property in Destin to rent.
We have stayed at the beautiful Nautilus several times and highly recommend it because it is such a relaxing place plus the sunset cruise is a must. We love the sunsets from the sun deck while observing God's creation in all it's splendor. The Nautilus is convenient to great restaurants, the beach,
and many beach activities. We highly recommend this beautiful, safe, and inspiring home for your vacation.
This was my first visit to the Nautilus and it exceeded all expectations. The house is beautiful and looks exactly as the pictures on this site show.
It is close to everything, yet it is very quiet and relaxing. It's just a short walk to the beach and the heated community swimming pool.
What can you say about the view from the observatory/ sun deck. My friends and I watched fireworks and what a front row seat that was!!!
The owner's hospitality is wonderful and they provide all that you will need and then some.
I definitely recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a great experience and vacation.
Thank you Brenda and Rick.
I have had the pleasure of staying at The Nautilus on four occasions, but never before during the Winter months, and in particular welcoming in the New Year. I have to admit that I love the summer with all of the "hot" amenities, but this trip was absolutely delightful. Destin does not roll up it's sidewalks during the Winter; the temperature was pleasant, restaurants were plentiful, lots of shopping was available - just not enough time to enjoy everything. The Nautilus is such a beautiful, comfortable home in any season. The owners take great pride in keeping the property well maintained and welcome any visitor suggestions, although I'm sure there are not many of them, if any. I will definitely consider returning to this property every time it is available.
I was lucky enough to stay at The Nautilus twice in 2014, once with girl friends and the other with my family. There were 10 of us, including my 4 grandchildren and 92 year old Mother! The kids especially loved the pool with the waterfall. If we weren't at the beach, they were in the pool! The Nautilus is the perfect place to stay, it has everything you would need or have at your own home. Not only is it beautiful, but very quiet and private. I can't wait until I can go back!
We have returned to the Nautilus five years running! Between the wonderful ocean view, watching the sun set atop the roof, and taking a dip in the pool, we can't get enough! Our children love feeding the ducks at the pond just across the road, the walk to the heated pool is easy, and the beach is Mom's personal favorite (as are the shells). The house is ideal! Comfortable, close to amenities, and quiet. Can't wait to return.
The Destin beaches are considered some of the most beautiful in the world! With sugar white sand, sand dunes, dolphins, boating, etc.. You can enjoy relaxing on the beach, visiting the many attractions including the Big Kahuna water park. Enjoy shopping at the outlet mall with water fountains for the kiddies to play.
Just down the road in Fort Walton Beach you can enjoy the Gulfarium where you can see live dolphin shows and other sea animals.
