Dolphin View/Beach and Harbor - Best of Both Worlds!!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Water Taxi pick up is steps away from the condo = No driving

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.***

Great location and clean condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very clean and pretty, and the owner is very kind, a park next to the community is a big surprise.

Best Way to Enjoy Destin

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to start out by saying that Melissa was very accomodating and attentive even BEFORE I booked the property. I let her know I was interested and she let me know there was currently balcony construction going on (which was a non-issue) and also gave me ideas of things to do in Destin. We did book the property for Christmas and I honestly feel like we never left home. Her place is super cozy and all the amenities are there - kitchen pot and pans, washer and dryer, cable, great sheets and restrooms, all the instructions for passcodes and property information and even kitchen ingredients! The place was very clean and the location is the best. My favorite part is that you can go downstairs and immediately be on white sand. If you keep walking around the building along the sand you will end up on O'Steen public beach. Google this place, it is a serene and private spot great for snorkeling and just swimming around. My 7 year old absolutely loved it! The property itself is located on Norriega point and there is a water taxi that will take you across the bay. It was closed during Christmas but it looks like a 5 minute ride. There is Winn Dixie, Bank Of America, multiple restaurants, Publix, gas stations etc all within 3 minutes of the property. Great, Great location and very cute condo. When we go back in the warmer months, we are definitely staying here!

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.
