Property description

Directly on the beach! Very Private!

Beautiful and private Holiday Isle, near everything. Watch fishing boats and sailboats in Destin Harbor from your deck, have coffee in the morning on your cozy 2nd porch overlooking the sand dunes and blue Gulf waters. Poolside Villas is an intimate 3 story villa with only 30 units wrapped around the pool. This corner unit is sunny and private. Swim in the calm waters of East Pass or walk to the surf in the Gulf. Snorkeling and scuba at the jetties is right outside your door. Destin's famous seafood restaurants are just across the harbor. Water sports golf and shopping minutes away. Sidewalks for walking and jogging in this quiet neighborhood.

YOUR VACATION HOME: This comfortable and attractive condo has nice furniture and plentiful kitchen appointments. Beach view from the front porch, with storage space for beach gear. Deck off living room hosts a great view of the harbor with nice patio furniture. Deck patio faces the beautiful harbor lights An elevator is central in the building for your convenience.

PRIVATE BUT CLOSE TO EVERYTHING: Every vacation attraction is nearby but the condo is private - located at the end of Gulfshore Drive on beautiful Holiday Isle. Just 1 mile off Hwy 98.

BLUE OCEAN WATERS: Sun on our white sand beach and swim in the clear, blue, gentle waters of the East Pass, where sailboats and power cruisers anchor to swim and snorkle, or they sail on out into the Gulf. Walk a little along the jetties to watch the locals fish, or go on to the gulf waves and more of the beautiful white sand beach that stretches for miles. Beach umbrellas are available for rent on all the beaches. Of course, the pool and deck are the center of meeting new friends and relaxing on a chaise facing the sun, or a nice evening dip under the stars. Come stay with us - enjoy Destin!

Destin is the fishing destination of world class deep sea fishermen. It is also the site of the world's most beautiful beaches. Soft white sand, gentle beaches and blue waters. Destin is the center of the Gulf Coast's visitors' pleasures. Golf, deep sea fishing, tennis, Water Park, Gulfarium and a fine Zoo, class shopping malls, discount malls and classic boutiques are close by. Mini bus, taxi cab and water taxi service are available. Jet ski rental, pontoon boat rental within minutes. Pirate ship sailing, fishing, cigar boat trips, skuba dive schools are just some of the harbor attractions. Restaurants on the boardwalk and along the beach are famous for seafood and all menu varieties.

In addition to all the local activities and features, this condo is located in a 3 story, intimate setting that is centered by the pool and sundeck which are a friendly gathering point and entry to the beach.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We have been renting condos for 20 years. . We have always felt that the guests that share our condo got a chance to enjoy it as much as we have. We think you will find most everything you need there! Bring your swim gear and some frozen peas to feed the fish at the Jetties, and you will have fun!

Why the Owner Chose Poolside Villas:
When we saw this property when it was first built, we said: 'This is where we want our grandchildren to play' - the beach is so perfect, and the property is not large - three floors and 30 condos total. The condos surround the pool area and the sundeck is the center of new friendships.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The view of the harbor from our deck is a never ending pleasure. Our corner apartment affords extra windows and a cheerful open feeling. Our second patio area at the front door is a quiet place to read and feel close to the beach but quietly private and away from the pool.
