                        The Nautilus is perfection!

                        We have returned to the Nautilus five years running! Between the wonderful ocean view, watching the sun set atop the roof, and taking a dip in the pool, we can't get enough! Our children love feeding the ducks at the pond just across the road, the walk to the heated pool is easy, and the beach is Mom's personal favorite (as are the shells). The house is ideal! Comfortable, close to amenities, and quiet. Can't wait to return.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.

                        We stayed at the Nautilus over the New Year! It was awesome! The house is beautiful and looks just as good for real as in the pictures. The house was clean and well stocked. Destin Pointe is a real hidden treasure in Destin with it's private beaches, location and quiet surroundings. This is our second time to stay here and we will be back!

                        We rented 5-21-11 thru 5-28-11 and we had A GREAT TIME there! Everything was as described and more! My wife and I enjoyed the privacy of the 3rd floor master bedroom and the 2nd floor master bath! There are lot of steps but we are under 60 so it wasn't too bad! Ha! The owners were very helpful EVERY step of the way! We enjoyed the sailboat ride with Capt.Ben very much and he was very informative! We cooked all our meals except for two evening meals and that was a big plus for us! Restaurants are a little pricey for us but we enjoyed Pompano Joe's! We would definitely recommend The Nautilus to families of up to 8 people! It is a home away from home! Thanks agin to Brenda and Rick for your hospitality! Al

                        This house was outstanding. It is in a secure, wonderful neighborhood. Easy access to the beach and the pool and hot tub area is a perfect way to end the day. The house itself is stunning. It is immaculate and has every luxury that you would want. We were thrilled to find such a perfect way to vacation that felt luxurious and comfortable. The owner explained everything in detail about the house and helped with any questions. The city is very close, but the gated community that the house is in, was so nice that we hardly ventured out to the city except for groceries and an occasional dinner out. Everything is close, but far enough that you aren't enveloped by it. We would definitely recommend this house to our friends and family.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We are retired with lots of family! Rick is Retired from NASA and Vanderbilt University. We moved from Brentwood TN two years ago and are currently living in Huntsville Al for part of the year and here in Destin during the Winter months. We were both born and raised in Alabama.

                      Why the Owner Chose Destin Pointe:
                      We both visited the beach growing up with our families and then in adult years continued to visit bringing our own families to enjoy these beautiful beaches. As we were looking for a place to buy, we were brought to Destin Pointe and immediately were sold on this beautiful house and neighborhood. It is one of Destin's best kept secrets.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Nautilus and Destin Pointe provides a relaxing atmosphere, family friendly setting, safe environment, trolley service to and from beach; convenient location to grocery store, Target, entertainment and restaurants. The small pool right outside the kitchen door is perfect for small children and adults. Rooftop observatory is a unique feature in Destin Pointe because it's height gives views of the gulf, east pass and the harbor, allowing for most awesome sunrises and sunsets. Join our captain for a sunset cruise on our sailing yacht, The Space Dancer.
