Short 200 yard walk to the beach. 60+positive reviews on VRBO. Give me a call and I can tell you more. Patrick

Very quite and private. Close to pool and tennis courts. Drive up and park at front door. Townhouse condo ... no elevators to deal with. Short walk to Beautiful white-sandy beach (200 yards). Heart of Destin - convenient to new Harbor Walk restaurants, Wal-Mart, Target, WalGreens, Wynn-Dixie, Publix, Home Depot Five acre fresh water lake on property stocked with bass and brim (catch and release fishing).
