Paradise in Destin

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible experience at the The Diamond of Destiny. The owner, Michael, is great. He gave us advice on restaurants and activities. The house itself is great. Plenty of room. The beach is wonderful. Step out the back door and you are on the beach. Our kids loved it and want to return to this house next year.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week at this property. The owner is great to work with and recommended restaurants and non beach activities for our family. The only problem is we don't want to leave. We are already booking this property for next year.

Amazing week at the Diamond of Destiny

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house to have a family beach vacation. The house is large and comfortable. It is directly on the beach so you can watch your kids play on the beach from the terraces. We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers one night and had a ball. Destin restaurants are also very good. If your family has 12-16 people we would highly recommend the Diamond of Destiny.

  • 5 of 5

The is the perfect property for a family vacation. You are directly on the beach to the views are magnificent. The house is large and comfortable. 3 floors, 5 bedrooms and 5 baths. The house is beautiful inside and out. Everything you need for a great vacation is provided. Just get groceries. We went out to several Destin restaurants and the food was great. The owner is a nice guy and we enjoyed meeting him. We definitely recommend this property.
