Property description

We have the Best Views of the GULF from our Villa - AND REVIEWS! Also see our Facebook page: Destiny Beach Villa!

Our VILLA can be rented as 2 separate 2 bedroom units or as one 4 bedroom vacation home that sleeps nine to twelve. (**Rates may reflect 2 or 4 bedroom unit depending on season). TWO full kitchens and living rooms make it convenient for two families to vacation together but remain separate. Both upstairs and down have private entrances. There is a secure lock out door between the floors that can be opened when renting as a 4 bedroom for easy access inside the villa.

We are located less than one and a half miles from the Destin Commons Mall with new additional shops (H&M, Boston Proper, Chipolte, World of Beer) , the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Sandestin/ Grand Boulevard, theaters and minutes from the top Destin restaurants, several golf courses, and off shore fishing. The Destin Harbor is 6 miles west of the villa.

Vacation in Destin's most exclusive community! Magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Destiny can be enjoyed from this charming villa nestled only 50 steps from Florida's most beautiful beach. You will be impressed by this luxurious neighborhood and outstanding beach and lakefront setting unparalleled throughout Destin! The villa is centrally located in Crystal Beach, across from the James Lee Park.

Note: Not all Villas have beach views. WE DO! We are a non- smoking villa. Pets are not allowed per our HOA.





**Cannot block out calendar unless both 2 bedrms/floors of villa are reserved; calendar IS updated daily! Saturday to Saturday ONLY Memorial Day through Labor Day. Please leave your cell phone number so I can call directly!

Car: Recommended

The villa is centrally located in Destin near the Destin Commons, the Outlet mall, water park, golf courses and marinas. Golf! Shopping! Day Spas! Amusement Parks! Water Parks! We have it all! Best walking on the 10 foot running/biking path along Scenic Highway 98 to many restaurants and more: SUP/Paddleboard and Surfing School nearby.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We absolutely LOVE Destin and bought this villa in 2004 so we would always have a beach home for our family. We live only one hour away and manage the villa ourselves. We pride ourselves on personal service and treat our renters how we would want to be treated. Our villa is exactly how we would want a vacation rental to be if we were renting it ourselves - clean, casual, updated and FUN!

Why the Owner Chose Destiny Beach Villas:
We have such great views from our villa. So many of our guests that have stayed multiple times in the villas say this is their favorite. About 50% of our renters are repeat renters! Destin has SO MUCH to do! The beaches are incredible - pure white sand and the Gulf is clear and beautiful! We love to walk to restaurants close by. There is a 10 foot walking, running, biking path that runs along the Scenic Hwy 98 for over 6 miles. You can ride to the Henderson Beach State Park or the Outlet Mall!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
One point of contact - the OWNERS! Views and location are unbeatable. We LOVE to sit out on the front porch and relax. There is always something to see: a dolphin, a beautiful boat passing by or visitors walking/biking down Scenic Hwy 98 ten foot sidewalk. It is not a busy area and very laid back. No highrises, less crowds. ***Always speak with an owner when renting a property! Never send money to a PO Box or Paypal without verification you are speaking directly with an owner.
