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 Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very clean, well stocked and conveniently located. The owners, Melissa and Jim, could not have been nicer or more attentive.

Perfect start to Summer!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed in Destin a few times before and this has been our best trip yet! The condo is beautifully decorated and most everything you can think of, or need is there. My family has always loved Norriego Point and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to finally stay there for a full 7 nights! Oh how I wish we had more time! Melissa was super helpful during the booking process and checked in on us the day we checked in to make sure everything was as we expected. The view from the balcony was just beautiful, we spent much of our time out there. Waking up and having a cup of coffee and a bowl of cereal on the balcony was just the absolute best way to start the day! The ease of access to everything Destin is just as simple as it gets from this condo as well! The fireworks on Thursday were an added bonus with front row seats on the private beach too! I honestly can’t say enough good things about our stay. My entire family agreed that this was the best vacation to Destin yet. We would most definitely stay in this condo again ❤️

Wonderful condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

Condo is located in wonderful location! Very close to Harborwalk and lots of restaurants. The water taxi makes it very convenient with no hassle of traffic. Condo has beautiful view of the east pass and you can sit in the pool and watch the boats! Owners were exceptional to work with and checked in on us multiple times throughout the stay. Will definitely plan to stay here again! Highly recommend staying here!

Thoroughly enjoyed my weekend stay at this property. Check in was super easy. Melissa checked in with us throughout our visit to ensure everything was okay. Saw dolphins from the balcony. Sleep well on a very comfortable bed. Plenty of comforts like home.
