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.

                The beach is so beautiful! The area is quiet and isolated but close to great restaurants and shopping. The condo was very clean and the staff at Holiday Surf was great. Out the front door and a few steps to the gulf. I'm definately coming back as soon as I can

                It was out 1st time in this area and the beach was spectacular, wide and miles of white sand. The facility was great with comfortable beds and an excellent staff who could answer any questions. Close to a variety of great restaurants and other entertainment activities. Would highly recommend it and we will be returning in the future.

                My family of 4 rented this condo for our spring break from Illinois. We loved the Holiday Surf & Racquet and plan to return again this year. My son and daughter both "loved" the shuffleboard and we were regular players daily. Many of the "snowbirds" wanted to sign our kids up to play with them! Thanks for a great spring break!

                RANDY THANKS FOR RENTING US YOUR CONDO. I WILL RECOMMEND THIS TO OTHERS AS I HAVE ALREADY BOOKED MY NEXT ADVENTURE. THE CONDO WAS CLEAN. PHOTOS ARE THE EXACT AS IF YOU ARE STANDING IN THE UNIT. SECURITY OFFICERS WERE SEEN AT ALL HOURS EVEN THOUGH YEAR ROUND OWNERS TOLD US AT THE POOL ,SAFETY HAS NOT BEEN ANY PROBLEMS. WE LIKED THE FACT THE HOLIDAY INN OR MARRIOT ISN'T IN THE AREA SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT SPACE AT THE BEACH OR GROUPS TRAMPLING YOUR GRANDCHILDS SAND CASLE, BECAUSE THERE IS NOT A PUBLIC BEACH ENTRANCE FOR QUITE A DISTANCE. ALL OF THE PUBLIC AREAS OF THE BULIDING ARE WELL KEPT, ESPECIALLY THE COIN LAUNDRY. YOU ALSO DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR TOWLES OR SUITS BLOWING AWAY ON THE BALCONY! IT'S SCREENED IN!!! YES, YOU CAN SIP ON A COLD DRINK WHILE YOUR FEET ARE PROPPED UP AND NOT GET ATE UP BY BUG'S.IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A CLEAN QUIET GETAWAY THIS IS THE PLACE TO RELAX. PLAY CARDS BY THE POOL.WHERE MANY YEAR ROUND OWNERS ARE VERY FREINDLY AND WILL SUGGEST THE BEST SPOT TO GO EAT WHAT YOUR HUNGRY FOR. DON'T FORGET YOUR BINOCULARS. WE SAW MANY!!!! DOLPHINS DAILY FROM OUR BALCONY. THE ONLY SUGGESTION I HAVE IS A GUEST BOOK WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA TO WRITE DOWN GREAT PLACES WHERE YOU HAD FUN, ATE OR MAYBE A PLACE TO NOT RECOMMEND. THEY HAVE ONE AT THE OTHER CONDO WE USE. IT'S FUN TO READ.

                The condo was great! It was perfect for our purpose...morning coffee on the deck, a relaxing day on the beach with a jaunt inside for lunch then back to the beach till we were fairly fried...then we would shower and be off to dinner and a little stolling. If it sounds monotonous, it is...you'll love it. Randy was great to work with...thank you again! We are seasoned travelers but this was our first visit to Destin...loved the sugary soft sand and tourquoise water. We will be back again to 312. You can't beat the location and price! The beach chairs are $20 a day for 2 and an umbrella...it's $15 if you rent for 3 or more. We did so because we needed the shade. We also brought a couple of beach chairs.

                Holiday Isle is a great location in Destin for a condo. Holiday Surf and Raquet Club is an older building but very well maintained. We loved the location. The staff , residents and snowbirds are awesome friendly people. The beach is gorgeous and right outside your door. The pool is warm. The unit itself is very outdated, in need of paint and a decorator. The kitchen is a mismatch of Goodwill items. We had to contact management for more towels, lack of spoons, forks and incomplete cup and measuring spoon sets. We really enjoyed Destin and will return to a different unit.

                Recommended for: Age 55+.

                Owner response: We have rented our condo since 2003. Most of our guests are people who have stayed with us before. Surpassing our guest's expectations is the most important thing we can do. We have never had a bad review. We are always open to suggestions to make our guests stay as enjoyable as possible. In February we replaced our TVs with flat screens. In November we purchased new kitchen ware. We have a dedicated and experienced staff to serve you. If you want to stay directly on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world you'll like our condo. It is well maintained and clean. The view from our deck is beautiful. So is the location. Destin is a special place....

                the condo was great! we had our kids with us and they enjoyed it. the air conditioning was cold, the room was clean and very adequate, although it was kind of 70's decor, no one seemed to mind!. wifi was kind of weak, but it worked. it has a nice view of the ocean and is just yards away from the beach. we especially enjoyed the beach at night when just a few crabbers were around. the beach was very clean, and it was a nice family atmosphere without much drama. the pool was also very enjoyable. we would do it again next year if we go that way. thanks! the frusciantes

              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.
