Dolphin View/Beach and Harbor! *WINTER DISCOUNTS*

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Welcome to Dolphin View! Our beach home is located on Destin's East Pass and the Destin Harbor. It is central to the most popular Destin activities and the harbor. The view of the jetty from our Lanai will occupy guests for hours. You can watch pods of dolphins herd schools of fish along the rock barrier and watch the deep sea fishing boats race toward the gulf in the mornings and return in the afternoon. Take a stroll to Norriego Point, the local beach just beyond the gates of the East Pass Tower complex for the fireworks show every Thursday night at 9 PM between Memorial Day and Labor Day, or watch the fireworks at poolside. You'll find our condominium is comfortably furnished, tastefully decorated, sleeps 6 and has a spacious Lanai accessible from the living room and both bedrooms. The Water Taxi is only steps away and will take you across the harbor to your favorite location - NO TRAFFIC!

***A boat slip located across the street at East Pass Marina is available as a separate rental.***

AWESOME!!! Beautiful Condo on the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

We Celebrated Our 29th Wedding Anniversary and stayed at Dolphin View. We had planned to go to Cabo San Lucas but due to my wife's job change we put it off. The condo was perfect, it was clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated, and on the beach. It was in close proximity to everything we wanted to do. Our host, Melissa was Great with suggestions on what to do. We love the off season because it was not crazy crowded in Destin FL. I Highly recommend Jim and Melissa's place as a great place to stay while on vacation. Communication was Excellent and Everything was as advertised. We had a minor hiccup with the air but Melissa was immediately on top of the situation. You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a Great Vacation Spot. We loved it so much we are considering buying a condo in Destin.

Dolphin View - it's true!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely. The kitchen, bathrooms and both bedrooms were very clean. There were beach chairs, towels and a beach umbrella in the closet for us to use. We really enjoyed our stay here. It was quiet and relaxing. The water taxi stop is right in front of the condo and it took us across the bay to many stops along the Harbor Village Boardwalk. Melissa and Jim checked in on us via text a few times, just to make sure we were doing alright and to see if we needed anything. They're very nice and accommodating hosts! On the last morning of our vacation, we were sitting on the balcony having coffee and saw Dolphins swimming very close to the shore, which was a special treat to end our vacation at the Dolphin View!
