Overview

About the property

Gulf front Condo, 1 Bedroom + Queen Sleeper Sofa, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 6)

This condo is direct Gulf-front at its best! Our condo is on the top floor and our view is fantastic. Unit 716 is not a "middle stack" unit so the view is superior ! You can call us at 612-770-7831 for more information and please be sure to view the video of our condo linked on this website. Located at the ever-popular Holiday Surf and Racquet Club on exclusive Holiday Isle... a peninsula surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor... View sugar white sand and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico right from your own living room and private balcony!

You don't have to cross the road to enjoy the surf here. Removed from US Highway 98 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. Nothing else in Destin can compare!

This one bedroom, one bath, seventh-floor unit sleeps six... with two FULL size beds in the bedroom and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. The cook will find a fully-equipped kitchen... with a view of the Gulf of Mexico to boot! Dining table seats six. We have a 42' Hi Def TV in the living room and a 32' Hi-Def TV in the bedroom in case you hit a rainy day or want to watch a DVD at night. (Note - My video says queen size beds in bedroom; they are full size, not queen size.)

NOTES: Minimum rental age 25 and is verified at check-in by staff. Our condo does not allow any pets and it is a No Smoking condo. $300.00 Reservation Deposit due at booking, full balance due 30 days before arrival date. Beach chair service is not included with our unit's rental fee, but you typically can rent for $30/day from the beach service vendor or bring your own chairs from home.

Just outside Holiday Surf's door you can step into our heated pool... or take a few steps across sugar white sand to swim in the beautiful emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. Holiday Surf offers two lighted tennis courts and exercise facilities onsite. Opportunities for paddle boarding, kayaking, parasailing, snorkeling, and fishing can be found along the beach too.

Holiday Surf & Racquet Club is located a little east of the 'jetties,' where the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor meet, a spot well-known for great snorkeling and diving. And the perfect place for the end of the day... Here you can watch a parade of boats returning from Gulf to harbor as, behind them, the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico.

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.

About Mark Lucas

My name is Mark Lucas and my wife Judy Lucas and I live in Elk River, MN. We purchased our condo in 2003 and have been pleased to share it with many Destin vacationers over the years. We have three children, and we love to vacation in Destin as often as we can.

Mark Lucas purchased this condo in 2003

Why Mark Lucas chose Destin

The beaches in Destin Florida are superior to any other in the continental U.S. and the crystal clear, emerald green water is fantastic to swim in. Our condo is on Holiday Isle which is a very upscale section in Destin and when you travel down Gulf Shore Drive to our condo you will pass by multi-million dollar gulf front homes which are beautifully landscaped. The aesthetic of Holiday Isle is gorgeous, beautifully landscaped and quiet as it is off the 'main drag' of Destin.

What makes this condo unique

Our fantastic direct gulf front condo offers easy access to sugar white sand beach, heated pool, tennis courts, snorkeling, sea kayaking and other water & beach activities. Our condo is located close to the Destin Harbor district, where you can dine overlooking the gulf & harbor, rent a pontoon boat or jet ski, go charter fishing or take a dolphin cruise.

Love this Place! Right On The Beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stay here every year. Love the location, near restaurants and store's. The property is very clean and maintained. The owner's are great, you can call them anytime if you have a problem. I recommend this place to our friends. Close to our favorite places to eat. McGuire's and Dewey Dustin's on the Harbor side, and Mellow Mushroom.

Great condo, Awesome view from the condo patio.

  • 5 of 5

Condo is very nice. Plenty of storage space and lots of places to hang wet bathing suits, t-shirts, hats, sunglasses, etc. Furniture is nice and comfortable. Big flat screen tv in living room and nice sized flat screen in bedroom. Best feature is the patio. It has a great view of the beach. Location of the condo is also great. It is close to lots of great restaurants and the docks.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

I took my mom for a mother/daughter trip to the beach and we stayed here. The condo is in a perfect location to so many restaurants and shopping. Located on the 7th floor, you have a wonderful view of the beach and the ocean especially those evening sunsets. I would recommend staying here as the owners were absolutely wonderful to work with! The kitchen is stocked with anything you need to cook with and the living room is so spacious with plenty of seating. We loved having the two beds in the master room as well. Hope to stay here again soon!

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd staying at this condo. We first rented in 2016 and fell in love with the place. Beautiful view of the ocean and pool. Location is great it is not crowded at the pool nor the beach area. My kids 8 and 12 love staying here. We see dolphins every morning. This year we saw pelicans eating the fish. The condo itself is in great shape love the decor and cleanliness overall. We are definitely coming in 2018!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for renting from us - Judy and I are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you stay at our place again soon ! (Like you, we have always loved the view from our 7th story "penthouse" balcony - our area in Destin called Holiday Isle restricts buildings to no more than 7 stories tall - we prefer it to the high rises of the mid Destin area.) Thanks again for your rental and great review - we really appreciate it.
