                  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 great views from our villa. So many of our guests that have stayed multiple times in the villas say this is their favorite. Destin has SO MUCH to do! The beaches are incredible - pure white sand and the Gulf is clear and beautiful!

                  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.
