Property description

Our Magnolia House unit #306 is located on an upper floor at 480 Gulf Shore Drive in Destin offering a wonderful view of the beach, Gulf and East Pass. This condo has been recently up-dated and is tastefully furnished in a beach style décor. After all - you're at the beach!

It's not easy to describe all the benefits of renting this unit, so we suggest taking the time to read some of our property reviews. They should help to answer any questions.

Complimentary beach service includes two lounge chairs and an umbrella which are set up by our attendants and provided March 1st through October 31st.
Enjoy our 3000' of pristine white sand, recognized as one of the best beaches in the world!
Two pools are also available for your use and enjoyment, the gulf side pool and the Magnolia House pool and spa which is heated year round.

Shaded in the morning but perfect for watching spectacular sunsets in the evening, your private, covered balcony is a great place for relaxing and just enjoying the sights with a morning coffee or evening refreshment. Watch the charter boats and private water craft enter and leave the Destin Harbor.
What a view!

We've recently completed the installation of new ceramic tile throughout, including the tub enclosure, based on the recommendation of our past guests.

The beautifully furnished bedroom features new King Size bedding with quality accessories and a Flat Screen TV/DVD Player. A Queen Size sofa sleeper is located in the living room.

A completely furnished kitchen with almost new appliances, complete with a washer/dryer will certainly help to make your stay a pleasure.

Other amenities include complimentary WiFi, Flat Screen TV,s and a DVD/CD/FM player that's I-Pod compatible, and a bathroom hair dryer.
Our Cox TV Package includes an On Screen TV Guide, over 40 HD Channels and 50 Music Channels.

Destin Pointe is located on Holiday Isle in the heart of Destin, but quietly removed from the traffic and the hustle and bustle of the main commuting areas. Still, we're within minutes of Destin's teriffic amenities like first class shopping and amazing restaurants.

Minimum rental age is 25 - minimum stay 3 - 5 nights. (Minimum stay is 5 nights over any major holiday)

This is a no smoking unit, and sorry - but no pets are allowed. Maximum overnight occupancy: 4 Persons, limited to no more than 3 adult guests.

Owner info

About the owner: This is the best beach in the U.S! We've been active real estate brokers in both New Orleans and Destin for over 20 years. During that time we've had the opportunity to explore the Florida coast and have owned a number of other properties in Destin. If you trust our experience - you won't go wrong. Destin Pointe on Holiday Isle is the greatest location in the area. Visit here and you're sure to come back! John & Sharon Kochera - Kenner LA

Why the Owner Chose Destin, FL, USA:
We've seen and explored just about all of Destin over the years. In our opinion, nothing else seems to rival this very special island neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Awesome views from your unit and balcony, 3000 feet of pristine white sand, gated with 24 hour security, loads of amenities, and within just minutes of major shopping, family activities, deep sea fishing, championship golf and top restaurants. Need we say more?
