Holiday Surf and Racquet Club condo description

Holiday Surf & Racquet Club on Exclusive Holiday Isle!

This condominium is direct Gulf-front at its best! Located at the ever-popular Holiday Surf and Racquet Club on exclusive Holiday Isle. A peninsula surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor. View sugar white sand and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico right from your own living room and private balcony!

You don't have to cross the road to enjoy the surf here. Removed from US Highway 98 traffic, but minutes from restaurants, shopping, boat docks, fishing, golf, and amusements. Walk or jog on Holiday Isle's two and a half miles of sidewalk's, or bike through its quiet neighborhood streets. Nothing else in Destin can compare!

This one bedroom, one bath, third floor unit sleeps four... With a king sized bed in the master bedroom and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. The cook will find a fully-equipped kitchen... With a view of the Gulf of Mexico to boot! Dining table seats six. Note: Minimum rental age 25. No Pets. No Smoking.

Just outside Holiday Surf's door you can step into our heated pool... or take a few steps across sugar white sand to swim in the beautiful emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. Holiday Surf offers two lighted tennis courts and separate men's and women's exercise facilities on-site. Opportunities for windsurfing,
parasailing, snorkeling, and fishing can be found along the beach too.

An easy walk along the beach will take you to the 'jetties,' where Gulf and Harbor meet, a spot well-known for great snorkeling and diving. And the perfect place for the end of the day... Here you can watch a parade of boats returning from Gulf to harbor as, behind them, the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico.

Only a few minutes' drive will take you to Destin Harbor... home of Destin's world-class charter fishing fleet, plus sailing excursions, sunset cruises, pleasure boat rentals, diving, and snorkeling trips... also, wonderful water-view restaurants and fun dockside bars. Nearby are abundant shopping opportunities... from exclusive boutiques to outlet stores, antiques, and art to sandals and bathing suits. Numerous golf courses and amusement parks are only a short drive away.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: I grew up in the Midwest but I had close relatives living in south Florida and the Keys so I spent a lot of time there. South Florida got so crowded I was looking for a place to live that was as beautiful and more like old Florida. Destin is that place.

              Why the Owner Chose Holiday Surf and Racquet Club:
              That's easy. It's gulf front.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              It's quiet and peaceful on the peninsula yet a few miles from shopping, clubs and restuarants.
