About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 11

Resting just across from the sunny pool deck and close enough to the Gulf to hear the waves crashing, A Stone's Throw will keep the mermaids in your family perfectly content. Upon entry, hand scraped wood floors accented by sky-blue walls and eye-catching art create a soothing haven for rest and relaxation. Plus, an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining room and living room makes it easy for everyone to mingle.

After a memorable day in Destin's warm sunshine, either on the shores of the white sandy beaches at the end of Newman Drive or golfing at one of the several great courses nearby, this Destin vacation rental will warmly welcome you to your new home away home. The kitchen is chef-ready and the dining area seats eight so that all will be able to view the large flat screen TV hanging over the fireplace- the perfect set up for dinner and a movie. If quiet time is what you're after, the master suite's large bathroom with its jacuzzi bathtub and rejuvenating periwinkle walls is sure to do the trick!

When you're ready to venture outside the walls of this immaculate vacation rental, A Stone's Throw is close to all of Destin's exciting entertainment and dining options. Just over two miles west is the Destin Commons- a popular outdoor mall, Hurricane Lanes- one of the area's favorite bowling alleys as well as plenty of delicious restaurants offering the best of local seafood. On the other hand, renting a few bikes and slowly cruising down the bike path that runs along the beach is a wonderful way to spend a day. Whatever you choose, the only thing set in stone is the charming nature of A Stone's Throw and the heartwarming memories waiting to be made.

During Spring and Summer this home requires a 7-night, Saturday to Saturday stay. Any other time we require a 4-night minimum stay.

We do not rent to anyone under 25 or to students.

Beautiful, convenient, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and closeto the beach. My only minor complaint is that the clothes dryer had to run 2 cycles to dry a load of clother (not a large load). Even though it blocked the mudroom/garage entrance, we honored the note requesting no to push the dryer back to the wall (or it wouldn't work properly). Even then, it just put an extra cycle in for laundry, and for 11 people, that is a lot of cycles. The living areas were beautiful and perfect for the kids. We tried on several occasions to connect the smart TV to the Internet with no success to watch Netflix, but there was a large selection of channels to choose from. The master BR was extremely comfortable and the master bath was large (shower door needs adjusting so that it will close). The 2nd BR was also very nice, and my only recommendation for the 3rd BR is to tighten the bolts on the bunk to reduce the loud noises made when someone turns over in their sleep. The kitchen was very spacious with a great layout. It was surprising that for a home rental that sleeps 11, there were no large bowls or containers to prepare/serve food (salad, side dishes, etc). We were pleasantly surprised to find the private fenced back yard to enjoy relaxing evenings and the sun room was very nice and semi-private. All in all, it was a beautiful home that we would happily rent again. Thank you for being a part of our vacation!

Everything was great! The commute to the beach and pool was awesome! The home was just what we needed. The house has such a calming and relaxing feeling about it. I would rent this same property again for our next visit.
