  • Great Location and Attentive Management

    "What a relaxing place to stay! The kitchen was well-stocked with appliances and cookware, the pool was heated to a comfortable 85 degrees, the beach was a short, easy walk away, and the neighborhood was attractive and well-maintained. We were 4 adults and 4 children. The master bedroom and bath were fantastic, the oversized kid's room was very nice though I was a bit surprised to see that top bunks rated for 50 lbs max (not sure if that's really correct). The queen room downstairs is very nice, but the bathroom is not attached and it can be a little noisy if the children are heavy-footed on the 2nd floor so keep that in mind when deciding where to put guests. The beds were comfortable, and the owners gave prompt attention to our few very minor issues (like housekeeping put incorrect sheets on queen bed so fitted sheet kept coming off). Management responded and corrected the problem within 30 minutes of emailing them. Bike rentals and a cute cafe located just a few easy blocks away. We did not use the carriage house, but would have if our parents joined us. Very easy to drive to grocery store (could bike/walk it), outlet mall, fishing from Harborwalk in Destin, and other "extras". We were mostly happy going to the beach. It's a place I'd return again. Nice, comfortable and clean. This is a place for family gatherings."

  • Loved Every Minute of It!!

    "This condo was exceptional, we travelled with another family and they stayed at another unit in the same building and this unit was by far superior. The beach is fabulous and you can just walk right out from the unit. The owner was very helpful with any questions we had. Next time I am in Destin, I will definitely stay here again!!!"

  • Great Family Vacation Home

    "We had a wonderful birthday celebration for my father at 5 palms. Plenty of room indoors and outside. Close to the Gulf of Mexico and nice clean beach. Convenient to lots of shopping. The hot tub was wonderful."

  • Location & View = Heaven

    "The process to secure our week was seamless & getting into the condo was a breeze--no office to check in or out with. Just went to the condo & used the provided code to get the keys out of the lock box and we were in. First impression: the condo smelled amazing (very clean), the decor was contemporary (very Pinterest worthy) and the view was priceless! Inside the condo we found just what we need for cooking a nice breakfast each morning and grilling out (bring your own charcoal & lighter fluid). We donated a lighter, bag of charcoal & lighter fluid to the condo for the next visitors. We did laundry in the slim washer/dryer combo in the closet and had no issues. Note to future renters: if you use the dryer, please clean the lint trap at the back of the dryer (inside the drum). If you turn the hall lights on you can see how to access it better. We cleaned it out and it was packed full of lint and the actual compartment itself was packed as well, doubt it has been waved out in the last year. I would hate to hear that this place burned down. The bathroom has adequate storage and a nice shower. The curtain set up is not the best so water escapes the shower easily. Just keep an eye on it & adjust the shower head if you notice water escaping. There are lots of towels, but no bath mat-that would be a good addition to the space. The bedroom is a good size with a nice dresser for storage and a small closet. The bed mattress really needs to be replaced. My husband and I actually took turns sleeping on the twin in the hall it was so bad. The bunk beds in the hall are really not too bad. Our son slept there the first night and loved having his own little cubbie. They put drawers underneath the bottom bunk which was perfect for our sons clothes--easy for him to access. One drawer is reserved for beach toys, we left ours there with the others for the next visitors. The cable package included Bravo, which is rare so I even got to keep up on my trash tv while on vacation. The beach is literally steps away & lifeguards are on duty every day. If you're a pool person you'll be happy to know it really is directly below the condo and easy to access. The pool location was actually the worst issue for us because there was a family that stayed in the pool all day and night (past the 10 pm closing time), yelling throwing balls, wrestling and being obnoxious. They pretty much took over the pool area (an"

Destin Area Attractions

There's plenty to do in Destin once you've settle in. Destin beach rentals are, of course, within easy distance of any water recreation you can think to try. Hang gliding and parasailing adventures can be booked at Kitty Hawk Kites, a business on the popular Destin Boardwalk. Fishing can be done from the Okaloosa Island Pier, a few miles from Destin beach rentals. You can rent a rod there or you can venture out into the deeper water on a fishing cruise. Keep an eye out for dolphins.

While swimming, scuba diving, and kayaking are also common water pursuits near Scenic Gulf Drive vacation rentals, water slides are another option. Cool off at Big Kahuna's Water Park in Destin, where you can go on the water rides, race the go-karts, or play miniature golf with the family.
