Property description

Sandy toes and salty kisses!
Now only a 5 night minimum in season summer dates, i.e.; June, July and August.
Beautiful mornings to enjoy a cup of coffee on the balcony and watch the dolphins swim by. Then later make your way down to the beach, or pool and get some sun.
This condo has room enough for up to 6 people maximum. Unless the 7th is an infant, sorry I have no cribs available.
You are so close to the water. Hear and feel the surf while reading your book on the balcony or taking a nap. Relaxation is key here!
You will NEVER hear or fight the traffic on Holiday Isle. We are 1 mile south of Highway 98. Yet still close enough to enjoy all the restaurants.
Take the water taxi from Norriego Point, down the street, to your favorite harbor eatery.
The Master bedroom has a comfy king size pillow top mattress, flat screen TV with Cox cable, and private bathroom, plus desk at window looking out to the Gulf of Mexico.
Lots of sunshine with this unit facing the sunrise in the morning. And curtains to curtail that extra light for sleeping late.

Secured, WiFi available in this unit at no extra cost to you.

Large guest bedroom with Queen size bed, full size dresser, TV & DVD and bathroom.
When standing, see the beach from window.

Dining room that seats 6 at a shabby chic table with simple elegance of a chandelier overhead and living room featuring queen size leather sleeper sofa and easy chair/ottoman and oak coffee table, end tables. All overlooking the most beautiful beaches of sugar white sand and emerald waters.

This unit is very tastefully decorated to let you know you are now at the beach. From the hand woven and worn jut rug in living room to the blue hues of color through out this unit. Not a trashy beach scene here, but comfortable and soothing.
All floors are tile. Great for allergy sufferers like me!
Ceiling fans in both bedrooms.
Well appointed kitchen and featuring a Kurig coffee maker.

Sorry absolutely **No pets and No Smoking in this unit or building!!! INCLUDING NO SMOKING ON BALCONY OR in DOORWAY or stairwells.
This building only has a smoking area in parking lot. You will lose the damage deposit if caught smoking anywhere but designated area at bbq grills in parking lot. Seriously.

This is an end unit, that faces east. There are stairs just outside the front door allowing for easy access and exercise to beach and parking. Coin operated laundry facilities are on this level, very convenient.

*For long term guests, Maid service is available at your expense, when you want it.
Beach service (2 chairs and umbrella) is NOT included at these prices. However, daily service is $30 payable to Scott the beach attendant at beach.
I do provide 3 beach chairs free for use. They are in the closet outside of front door. Keys hanging in kitchen. Please rinse them by tennis courts before bringing back to unit.

Thank you for considering our condo for your get away.

This place is where you want to be for your beachfront vacation! And so do others!

So HURRY and book early to guarantee your price and dates you want...

'BEST FISHING IN THE WORLD!' That is what Destin is best known for. The local seafood dining is second to none.

I now have a key less lock on front door. Use numbers easy for you to remember for code.

My condo is directly on the Gulf of Mexico and located on the west end of Destin where there are plenty of activities to keep you busy all week, yet when you come back home you can kick back and relax and listen to the surf lapping on the sand. Truly an exceptional location.

Putt putt golf, 18 hole golf, Water park, night clubs, casual to elegant dining, comedy club, water sports of all sorts, Gulfarium Marine Park, Sunsets over the Gulf, fireworks over the sound on Thursdays in summer, live music in many places of various venues, Wine festivals, art festivals, music festivals, SCUBA diving with groups and they can rent you everything you need to enjoy. In fact if you haven't already, get certified with PADI while here in the Emerald Coast.

Huge Outlet Mall with Primo stores, AMC Imax movie theater, Bass Pro Shop, Top beauty salons, World Famous Crab Island and Harbor Walk Village! Wow, so much and so close!

We have brochures in lobby for just about anything you want to do with your children and senior activities.

My condo is on the 4th floor, west end unit.

It is beautiful and well equipped with everything you will need for a wonderful vacation in Destin!

*Secured WiFi in this unit.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My family and I are from Ocala, FL. I came to Destin several years ago on vacation to be near the water due to my severe allergies and never left. We live just a few miles away from condo. I fell in love with this condo because when I opened the curtains and saw that view and the sting rays flying out of the water playing, it took my breath away.

Why the Owner Chose Holiday Surf and Racquet Club:
This is an end unit condo so the noise from the pool is minimal and the sound of the surf is maximized. Enjoy your coffee and the sunrise every morning from the balcony. We face south east in this unit. This complex is on the beach, NOT across the street! We have one of the largest heated pools. We have mandatory NO smoking in the entire building including balconies! Fabulous sunset deck between the tennis courts and the beach. Off of congested Highway 98! We have a fitness room, sauna, charcoal grills and very friendly staff and residents. This part of Destin, Holiday Isle, is a much quieter area with seniors and families for the most part staying in our complex and surrounding properties.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Trip Adviser ranked Destin beaches as #3 in the World for most beautiful beaches to visit. Travel channel ranked the Emerald coast as the #1 beach destination. It has much to offer, you can play, exercise or relax on this property. It's your vacation! Plenty of places within a 1 mile radius to eat, drink and be merry. The 4th floor has a coin laundry facility on it! Very convenient. A staircase is just outside the entrance of this unit. Get your exercise! You can also book the party room for events upon availability. We can help you with coordinating musicians, DJ's, cakes, etc. We can even arrange for a private chef. To make you feel like you are home, a Blow dryer, fresh linens and 2 towels per person are provided as initial toiletries, also travel shampoo, conditioner and soap for each bathroom, 3 rolls each bathroom of toilet paper and 1 roll paper towels provided for your convenience. You may need to purchase additional items for yourself.
