It is fully outfitted with everything you need, just bring your clothes, food, and willingness to have a great time. You can see the Gulf of Mexico from the unit, however, we are not on the beach. For the money, The Palms is one of the best treats in town.

Just what the family ordered....A relaxing time in Destin where you can enjoy it all..the beach, shopping, golf, pools, restaurants, deep see fishing, scuba, snuba and snorkeling, or just doing nothing. It can all happen in Destin and at the Palms of Destin.

This is a true vacation experience!!! The Palms of Destin is an exceptional resort that offers many options. Whether you want to relax at the phenomenal lagoon pool, go to the BEST BEACHES in the world, go shopping, sailing, dining, fishing, you get the picture, The Palms is close to everything. The Palms has a very nice fitness center and the convention space if you having meetings. There are several pools including the large zero entry pool, the smaller heated pool, a large hot tub, a shallow pool for the kids and a splash pad. Our guests have truly enjoyed their stays and we have had many return guests and referrals, a true indicator that folks like what they are getting.

The Palms is located just 700 yards from the beach. You can either take the free shuttle or walk across HWY 98 to the June Decker County beach. There are bathroom facilities at the beach. The Back Porch Restaurant, a Destin landmark, is next door to this beach as well, a great place to spend the evening.

Other close attractions are The Track, Big Kahunas Waterpark, Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory, Joe's Crab Shack FudPuckers Restaurant, Fat Daddy's Pizza and Arcade. Destin Harbor and the fishing fleet are just down the road where you can book your deep sea fishing trips. One thing you will want to do is to take a GLASS BOTTOM Boat Tour or go snorkeling with Destin Snorkel.

Going in the other direction is Destin Commons, a Main Street type shopping destination. A few miles to the east is Sandestin and all it has to offer. Destin has lots of local and very good restaurants that you need to find, don't just go to the chains.

Come here and explore!!! I have called it home since 1997 and don't want to live anywhere else.

About Peter Burke

My family and I have lived in the Destin area since 1997 and love it. We purchased our first unit at the Palms in 2007 and this one in 2011. We are happy to help make your vacation the best it can be,

As much as we love Destin-30A, we also love to explore other areas as well.

Peter Burke purchased this condo in 2011

Why Peter Burke chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Own unit 1613 (VRBO #111436) and chose to purchase this unit which is next door. The Palms is a great resort and we have many satisfied guests.

What makes this condo unique

The Palms is in the middle of everything. If you want to stay close by and enjoy the many restaurants within walking distance, walk to the beach, go to the harbor or head to Sandestin or 30-A, you can access it all from the Palms.

I like to keep my condo as if I am coming to stay. I keep laundry detergent, dishwashing and dishwasher detergents, garbage bags, soap, shampoo, hair dryers, boos, a few DVDs, some games, cards, etc. Please use but leave behind. Books, if you want one, trade it out. Accomodations are not ADA accessible but I am sure could accomodate many. Elevators are on each end of the building and the grounds are 1 level. All linens are provided for your stay and there is a washer and dryer for your use in the unit. I just replaced the sofa with a leather sleeper and have a very comfortable mattress. You will not be disappointed. Call me with any questions about the Palms. I also own the unit next door, VRBO #111436. You can book both units if you like,

Great snowbird stay

  • 5 of 5

Our first snowbird experience after our recent retirement and had a definitely positive experience, starting with the reservations and ending with the check-out. Peter made the reservation process easy and quick, even though it was last-minute on our end. We stayed for the entire month of January and the condo had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location was a quick ride to the beach where there was plenty of free parting or some days we chose to just enjoy the pool. On cool days there was plenty to do, and we meandered from Pensacola Naval Museum to Elgin Air Force Base to the alligators. Destin has plenty of nightlife, restaurants and shopping - more than we could do in one month. An overall positive experience and we would definitely rent this condo again should we decide to return to this area again.

Destin rocks!

The condo was clean and really nice for the price. Plenty of room and very comfortable. The pool at The Palms is fabulous. Lots of shade and plenty of 3-4 feet water depth so our kids could play without us worrying. We had a great time here.

Clean and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We have been to The Palms four times, and this is the nicest condo by far. It is clean and spacious, and clean. I stress clean because in the past with other condo's, that had not always been the case. The owner was super easy to work with and there were a few things in the kitchen cabinets that had been left by other tenants or supplied by the owner (salt & pepper, Pam, coffee filters). Usually you have to buy those little things and may have to hear. The point is, the if there is something useful left behind in the condo, they are left for the next tenants to use. The pools are great and there are always enough chairs and plenty of space. You are allowed to use floats in the pools. Henderson Beach is very close and is also well kept and clean. The owners have an umbrella and beach chairs in the closet. Great place to bring your family! We hope to come back in the future.

Family Vacation to Destin Florida

  • 4 of 5

Overall: The condo was very clean and laid out nicely. The kitchen has granite countertops and the kitchen was very roomy for a condo. There was a breakfast bar with a couple of chairs and a 4 place eating table. The living area was nice with a nice tv and couch. Having the two bedrooms unconnected was very nice. The kids could go to one room for a little downtime and the parents in the master. The two bathrooms were nice as well. The master had a very nice tiled shower. The beds were very comfy and it was nice have washer/dryer in the unit. Overall the place was as I was hoping and kept up nicely.

Pros: - close to the commons road which is a nice backroad to use when 98 is very busy. Very clean condo with lots of space. Close to walmart and restaurants along 98. Very close to the Track. Large Pool for the kids to swim and enjoy. Very close to Henderson state park. Very spacious bathrooms and rooms of good size as well.

Cons: Not very convenient to reach the condo from where one parks. The parking is in a parking garage and one has to wind through the main entrance to an outdoor walkway to get to the east tower. Beaches will have to be driven to though a shuttle is available. We chose not to use the shuttle as it goes to only 1 beach, but I knew this going in to the rental.

All in all a very nice place and I would consider staying there with my family again.

Stayed at the Condo for 5 nights with 2 adults and 2 kids.

Great representation of Destin's hospitality

  • 5 of 5

For our first visit to Destin, we were blown away and are looking forward to a return trip/rental. Peter clearly puts his tenants at heart and provides an abode that comes close to home. Tons of activities to do within and around the condo properties that kept us totally entertained. A +++!!

The Palms of Destin is a true vacation experience!!! An exceptional, almost new resort that offers many options. Whether you want to relax at the phenomenal lagoon pool, go to the best beaches in the world, go shopping, sailing, dining, fishing... you get the picture. The Palms is close to everything. Our guests have truly enjoyed their stays and we have had many return guests and referrals, a true indicator that folks like what they are getting.

The Palms is within walking distance of several good and fun restaurants. They include Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory, Joe's Crab Shack, The Back Porch (a Destin classic), Ruth's Chris, Jim-N-Nick's BBQ and Hooters. Wal-Mart and other shopping are also a short walk as well.

This great sixth floor unit offers a lagoon pool view as well as an evening sunset(seasonal) over the Gulf of Mexico and Destin. The unit is a KING 2 bedroom with a king bed in both bedrooms. Another sleeping option is the queen pull-out sofa in the living room. You will also find flat screen televisions in the living area and bedrooms. This condominium has all of the comforts of home and we know you will be pleased with.

The Palms of Destin. Sorry, no pets or smoking allowed.

Come to destin and enjoy what we have all year long.
