Property description

A beautiful end unit on the top (3rd) floor with an unobstructed panoramic view of the Gulf, Jetties, Dunes, and East Pass. Your unit is located on Holiday Isle, across the bay and South of the city of Destin. Although billed as an island, it does have road access. No high rise here, this small quaint complex only has 30 units, and yours is on the top floor. We have an elevator, and 4 stair ways, one just outside your door. This complex is the closest condo to the Jetties. (The Jetties is a man made rock formation at the mouth of the channel where it meets the gulf). This rock formation breaks up the waves and keeps the sands from shifting for boating. This also makes for calm waters which is ideal for parents with small children and is a local favorite for beach activity. Small fish like to hide in the rocks and is the destination for local snorkeling boats, so do not pay to go snorkeling. A second beach where the Jetties meet the Gulf has all the wave action and surge for the more daring swimmers. Fishing is also good at the jetties for the avid anglers, and if you are lucky you can see the dolphins play there too.
Your unit is a two bedroom two bath unit, and the sofa makes into a sleeper to comfortably sleep 6. The master bedroom has it's own private bath and access to you own private balcony. Both bedrooms have queen size beds. The kitchen is fully furnished with utensils, a dishwasher, a SxS refrigerator w/ice maker, and a washer/dryer in the unit. The den has view of Gulf, Jetties, Pass, and Dunes with access to private balcony via sliding glass door. The Balcony overlooks the fresh water open air pool below as well as the view from the den.
This island is totally residential, condo's, town homes, single and multifamily residences. No commercial property is located on this small island. The city of Destin is small compared to most cities, so everything you need to do or want to do is within 5 miles of your condo. The city is billed as the luckiest fishing village, and lives up to it's fame. All sorts of boating activity is available as is world class golf, and shopping. Big Kahuna's water park is located about 5 minutes from your condo as are plenty of restaurants with great sea food and other foods.
Here, a vacation does not have to break the bank and there are plenty to do right outside your door. A mid night stroll, shelling, or crabbing, snorkel, swim, bask in the sun, build a sand castle, write you name in the sand or do nothing at all on the sugar white sands and beaches just outside your condo.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

Why the Owner Chose Poolside Villas:
I started going to Florida as a child with my parents, and I always assumed our trips to Destin was due to it's close proximity to where we live in Alabama. After growing up and visiting other parts of Florida, I realized that the Destin area had the most beautiful beaches. The sugar white soft sand gives the water an Emerald color which is how it got the name of 'The Emerald Coast'. I was also impressed with the small town charm, which still exists. Billed as the 'Luckiest fishing village' this modern day city still owes it roots to the avid angler, and water sports and fishing charters still ranks high on attraction the city has to offer. Your complex is the closest complex to the Jetties, and is the only place to do some serious snorkeling. In fact the local snorkeling tours end up right outside your door. I fell in love with Destin Florida as a child, but I had to wait till I grew up to appreciate how great of a place it is.
