Poolside Villas condo description
This beachfront condo is located on popular Holiday Isle in the heart of Destin. From the balcony, watch the sail boats and the fishing fleet leave from the East Pass early in the morning while you drink your coffee. You will often see dolphins playing in the surf. At the end of the day, enjoy breathtaking sunsets from the balcony or while you walk down the beach.
This is a newly-redecorated two bedroom, two bath, second floor unit that sleeps up to six people with a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom and a queen-sized bed in the second bedroom plus a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped and also has a washer and dryer... no need to go out to do laundry! All linens and kitchen utensils are furnished. The condo has wi-fi and USB ports in every room. The pool and barbecue deck are just around the corner from your condo as well.
This condominium complex is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Great views of the Destin Harbor from your own private balcony and limited Gulf views from your front door balcony. Step from the pool area onto the sugar white sands, and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Destin jetties are just a short walk from your condominium.
Where the Gulf and the Harbor meet, the jetties are well-known for great snorkeling and scuba diving. Tourists pay to take boats here. It's yours for free. The sea life is amazing; you will not want to get out of the water.
This condominium is located at the popular Poolside Villas on exclusive Holiday Isle, which is a peninsula surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor. You are removed from major thoroughfare 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 sidewalks, or bike through its quiet neighborhood streets. There is simply nowhere else in Destin that can compare!
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.
Great local restaurants nearby include Louisiana Lagniappe, Commander's Palace, Chops Steakhouse, Marlin Grill, Bonefish Grill, McGuire’s Irish Pub of Destin, and many others.
Shopping is nearby at the popular Destin Commons, which features Rave Motion Pictures, and the Silver Sands Outlet Malls is a short distance down the way.
Don't forget about spending a day at Big Kahunas Waterpark which also features go-karts, miniature golf and thrill rides. The Track also offers miniature golf, kiddie rides and four go-kart tracks, including a three story wooden track. Take a dolphin cruise on the Destin Sea Blaster or dine and dance on SunQuest Cruises. Check out Gator Beach at Fudpuckers in Destin or the Gulfarium on Okaloosa Island.
This is a locally managed condo. Relax, enjoy and make your best vacation memories at one of the best vacation spots in Florida. (Minimum rental age 18. No pets. No smoking.)

ReviewsWrite a review
My family and I were VERY impressed. The listing and photos were right on. I had my 5 month old grandchild and he and I really enjoyed the poolside. My daughter and her friend of course enjoyed the beach...which was a very short walk from the condo. I also enjoyed the fact that it was off to itself and private. The time of year was perfect. The beach was not busy or full of people. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for a weeks stay, right down to the beach chairs and umbrellas. It was a very short drive to eating places and "of course" the outlet mall, I would highly recommend this condo everyone. I am looking forward to going back as soon as possible! Not only was the property and the stay great, the owner is just as great. A very easy going person to work with. Thanks SO MUCH!

Highly recommend this condo! Beautiful views of the ocean and the harbor and a very peaceful neighborhood! We enjoyed the fact that it is steps from the beach and a very short stroll to the jetties. We are already trying to decide on a date that we can book this same unit again for next year! Thank you for allowing this opportunity for us to rent your property for a week!

Awesome stay near the jetties
Awesome stay near the jetties
My family of 4 truly enjoyed our experience in this condo. The walk to the beach was quite lengthy; however, it made us appreciate the water that much more. The view from the kitchen was quite refreshing. We loved that we had the best of both worlds within walking distance. We had the quiet, still water of the jetties with the awesome snorkeling opportunities; as well as, the closeness to the waves where the dolphins spent most of their time! The condo was well stocked with almost everything needed to live for a week; one of the beach chairs was broken (due to rust). We did go parasailing, snorkeling; we even embarked on a fine dining cruise. We had an excellent stay; I hope to rent the condo again for next year.

12th time visiting the Holiday Isle - 4th time staying at Poolside Villas. Owner is a pleasure to deal with - class act all the way. Everything was great as usual. Best kept secret in world is staying at this complex. For families who like a more secluded place that is kid and family friendly, there is no better place to stay. If you like to fish, try live bait at the rock jetties. We watched a guy reel in an 18 inch mackeral on live bait. Also, we caught small fish fishing on bottom with shrimp. Bring your snorkel gear as all of the tour boats drop off guests at the jetty pictured at the top of the photo next to the listing. Our favorite restaurants are Callahan's, The Donut Hole, and The Back Porch.
