Family beach vacation
This was a good family house for our 9 person family. It was well cared for and easily accessible to all of the local attractions. The owner did a good job of describing local restaurants and amenities.
Only thing missing was a pool, which for being so close to the ocean, really didn't matter. Loved it
Experience was great, the house was beautiful and spacious, the area had a ton of activities for the family. Owner was great, would love to do it again.
Had a good time loved the house
House was great. beds slept good and the house was very clean and had a lot of space. If it had a pool it would be a 5 star
Fun in the Sun

Beach Accesses: There are a number of places to access the beach so explore! The closest is at the Destin Bridge. Take Calhoun to the right it will dead end at Hwy. 98 take a right then at Destin sign and end of the bridge take a left and Park. Very calm water where the bay and Ocean meet. Normally gorgeous and great view. Good place for young children where water is not so rough also great for kayak and paddle boarding.
If you go down further on Hwy 98 toward Fort Walton Beach you will see the Eglin Public Park on the left but you must have a military to use. Remember ocean is on the left Bay on the right. Next is Shoreline on the bay. Great for kite surfing (rentals available), kayak and paddle boarding. Up further on Hwy 98 is Beasley Park Beach Access where there are rest rooms, showers and picnic areas. If you go even further down on 98 there is a large restaurant and public beach area that also has showers, bathrooms and a playground. A local favorite, the Crab Trap Restaurant at the Fort Walton Board Walk is there as well as the Gulfarium. Wild Willy's Adventure Zone is across the street from the beach or on your right when coming from Destin. It has arcade, rides, Dino golf and more
You can also rent Jet Skis and Pontoon boats at the Harborwalk Village as well as multiple restaurants and music venues on the harbor. There are also amusements for the young and young at heart: zip line , rock climb, virtual rides and more for the kids. The easiest way to get to Harborwalk is to take a left out of the driveway and take Beach Street to take a right turn onto Hwy 98 then Harborwalk Village on is on the left. Harry T’s, their delicious muffins and endless Mimosa’s while watching the boats go by are a must for Sunday Brunch.
More beach accesses if you turn left off of Beach Drive to Hwy 98. Noriega Point And Osteen Beach Access on Holiday Isle and Crap Trap Destin. More about accesses at.
Also Big Kahuna Water Park and The Track are also big local favorites for families. They are to the left off Beach Drive .
