This beachfront condo is located on popular Holiday Isle in the heart of Destin. From the balcony, watch the sail boats and the fishing fleet leave from the East Pass early in the morning while you drink your coffee. You will often see dolphins playing in the surf. At the end of the day, enjoy breathtaking sunsets from the balcony or while you walk down the beach.
This is a newly-redecorated two bedroom, two bath, second floor unit that sleeps up to six people with a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom and a queen-sized bed in the second bedroom plus a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped and also has a washer and dryer... no need to go out to do laundry! All linens and kitchen utensils are furnished. The condo has wi-fi and USB ports in every room. The pool and barbecue deck are just around the corner from your condo as well.
This security-gated condominium complex is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Great views of the Destin Harbor from your own private balcony and limited Gulf views from your front door balcony. Step from the pool area onto the sugar white sands, and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Destin jetties are just a short walk from your condominium.
Where the Gulf and the Harbor meet, the jetties are well-known for great snorkeling and scuba diving. Tourists pay to take boats here. It's yours for free. The sea life is amazing; you will not want to get out of the water.
This condominium is located at the popular Poolside Villas on exclusive Holiday Isle, which is a peninsula surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor. You are removed from major thoroughfare traffic, but minutes from restaurants, shopping, boat docks, fishing, golf, and amusements. Walk or jog on Holiday Isle's two and a half miles of sidewalks, or bike through its quiet neighborhood streets. There is simply nowhere else in Destin that can compare!
Only a few minutes' drive will take you to Destin Harbor, home of Destin's world-class charter fishing fleet, plus sailing excursions, sunset cruises, pleasure boat rentals, diving and snorkeling trips... also, wonderful water-view restaurants and fun dockside bars.
Nearby are abundant shopping opportunities... from exclusive boutiques to outlet stores, antiques and art to sandals and bathing suits. Numerous golf courses and amusement parks are only a short drive away.
Great local restaurants nearby include Louisiana Lagniappe, Commander's Palace, Chops Steakhouse, Marlin Grill, Bonefish Grill, McGuire’s Irish Pub of Destin, and many others.
Shopping is nearby at the popular Destin Commons, which features Rave Motion Pictures, and the Silver Sands Outlet Malls is a short distance down the way.
Don't forget about spending a day at Big Kahunas Waterpark which also features go-karts, miniature golf and thrill rides. The Track also offers miniature golf, kiddie rides and four go-kart tracks, including a three story wooden track. Take a dolphin cruise on the Destin Sea Blaster or dine and dance on SunQuest Cruises. Check out Gator Beach at Fudpuckers in Destin or the Gulfarium on Okaloosa Island.

The unit and property itself we're nice second bedroom could use a TV though
The unit itself and property including pool where nice the beach was beautiful as well but a little on the crowded side being that you had to share it with a local Resort not the property owner's fault or the property but the resort that you were sharing it with their people were a little bossy and rude but just to reiterate the owner of the property the pool all were fine
Thank you for taking time to write a review
I am afraid that this is a public beach . We have fought this local resort about transporting their guest and someday we will win
Calm ocean due to it being in the bay. Walk down the beach a ways and you can have open ocean view. Had a good vacation with the kids.
Everything was good.
Lots of fun, good place to stay.
Thank you for your kind words, hope that you return

Not as advertised.
The condo was filthy when we arrived. I had to contact the owner to get someone to clean it. We had to leave the condo for 3 hours (with all of our valuables) while waiting for someone to get there and clean. This was NOT how we wanted to start our trip...especially after a 7 hour drive! Also,the condo is advertised as "beach front." Please be aware that yes, it is on the beach, but the balcony offers a lovely view of the street. The beach is actually about a 10 minute walk from the condo. And, we had to share that beach space with a neighboring hotel that was shuttling guests in every half hour. It was extremely crowded! This condo is on the 2nd of 3 floors. The owners of the unit directly above us must own a large pack of nocturnal elephants. They kept us awake most of the night stomping so loudly we thought the ceiling would cave in! And the beach chairs provided...? Tiny chairs that sit so low to the ground that I actually had to pull my parents out of them. This was our first trip to Destin but our last stay at Poolside Villas.
I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay, my cleaning lady made an error thinking you would not arrive til the next morning, of course that was quickly rectified, the balcony is the back balcony that overlooks the street and the Bay, the balcony at the entrance faces the pass jetties and the Gulf, You step off of my pool/deck area right onto the beach and there is a short walk to the pass/jetties/ Gulf but all of the walk is on the beach, As far as the chairs they are sand chairs which is most common , please read all other reviews combined they are 5 stars
Beautiful setting for photos & swimming
Loved swimming near all the rocky jetties at the beach behind the condo, & at Norriego Point just down the street. Beautiful photo opportunities @ both places also. Condo was as described, though it could have been a touch cleaner (tile floors & counters were dirty), but for the price it was tolerable. Owner was prompt with responses & gave clear information. Would stay here if vacationing the area again in the future.
Cozy,c clean, and great location
I would love to stay at this place again. It was very quiet and close to everything. The condo had everything we needed. Awesome place and the owner is very friendly.
