Property description

Oceania 706 is a spacious Gulf front condo with three bedrooms and three bathrooms with magnificent views of the Gulf of Mexico. Upon entering the condo the first thing you will notice are the floor to ceiling windows offering unobstructed panoramic views of the emerald green Gulf of Mexico and the white sandy beach.

Oceania is a gated condominium with one of largest private beaches in the area. With only 71 units in the entire building, Oceania is considered a low density building giving everyone plenty of room on the beach. Amenities include a private beach, beach service (two beach chairs and umbrella setup daily - Mar-Oct), reserved covered parking, swimming pool, fitness room, gas grills, wireless internet, enhanced DirecTV package and keyless access.

The condo also offers an impressive balcony where you will be able to see for miles from the 7th floor! Enjoy your morning coffee, afternoon lunches and relaxing dinners all while watching the beautiful ocean waves. The balcony can be accessed from three different sets of sliding glass doors and offers lounge chairs and tables. You will enjoy entertaining or just relaxing every day and night on the balcony. Curl up and read your favorite book, watch the dolphins swim by, or just enjoy the ocean breeze as life’s pressures just melt away.

The kitchen has new kitchen cabinets (2013), higher-end appliances and is fully equipped with all the tools you need to prepare your favorite meals.

The large living and dining area has a wet-bar with a stand alone ice maker ready for your entertaining. The spacious living room will give everyone plenty of room to spread out. Sofa sheets are provided for the two over-sized couches to allow the condo to sleep eight. There is a 55' LCD-Flatscreen TV and Blu-Ray/DVD player in the living room for those movie nights.

The master bedroom has a wall of windows overlooking the gulf, new 47' TV, huge walk-in closet and the bathroom offers a double vanity, Jacuzzi bathtub and a separate shower.

The second and third bedrooms each have their own private baths, queen size beds, large closets, and 32' LED TV's.

Oceania is located on Holiday Isle which is a small peninsula in the Destin area. This peninsula is only a few miles in length and is surrounded by Destin Harbor to the north and the Gulf of Mexico to the south. Holiday Isle is off the beaten path but centrally located where you are literally minutes away from all the shopping, dining, fishing, amusements and fun the Destin area has to offer. Destin has an abundant of water-view restaurants and fun dockside bars; plenty of restaurants from formal dining to fast-food to your classic mom and pop. Destin offers a world-class charter fishing fleet, sailing excursions, sunset cruises, dolphin cruises, pleasure boat rentals, diving and snorkeling trips. Nearby are abundant shopping opportunities from exclusive boutiques to outlet stores to antique shops. Numerous golf courses and amusement parks are only a short drive away. And don’t forget the beautiful Emerald Coast with the whitest sand with the softest grain you’ll ever feel.

Looking for something to do in the fall? Check out Destin in October!! The Destin Seafood Festival and the annual Destin Fishing Rodeo all take place during the month of October and they are a lot of fun.

Oceania 706 is owner rental/management. We take pride in providing our guest real luxury items including 1200 thread count linens, quality bath towels and even softer (greater than one-ply) paper products. We strive to provide quality and maintained accommodations for your vacation.

Most importantly we are passing along the savings in rental commission fees to you - our guest! When you book Oceania 706 you will not be charged extra for beach service or processing fees!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Ken and Marcia Matthias made a dream come true when they purchased Oceania 706 from the Hines family in December 2014. The Matthias' have been vacationing on Holiday Isle in Destin with their two daughters and close friends since 1993.

Why the Owner Chose Oceania:
Prior to 2014 we had rented condos at other complexes on Holiday Ilse. In September 2014 we rented a condo at Oceania for the first time and immediately realized we had found the ideal property in Destin. Oceania offers so much more than most condo's - from the large balcony overlooking the beautiful serene Gulf, to the large, open floor plan, to the awesome beach - it is just the perfect place. What is unique about Oceania is overall the complex is small consisting of 9 floors, 71 gulf front units with only 24 actively on the rental program. The complexes to the right and left of Oceania are also on the small side and do not allow rentals. Therefore a vacationer has plenty of sandy white beach and ocean waves to enjoy. We believe you too will find the privacy and quality to entice you to make this your vacation destination. Oceania was constructed by Bennett Development. Their detail and quality in building exceed all others.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The complex is immaculately maintained. Nice perks include a covered parking place, keyless entry (no more trying to remember who has the key or where is the key), and an ice machine in the condo! Destin is known for deep sea fishing, gorgeous sunsets and shopping galore. Oceania is only minutes from everything - Paradise awaits you!
