This unit is truly one of the largest, most beautiful condos in Destin. This amazing three bedroom, three bathroom, 6th floor unit with a spacious floor plan offers unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico, lake, and golf course. The private balcony with full Gulf views is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or experience a romantic sunset.

This open floor plan condo is tiled with luxurious travertine throughout the foyer, living room, bathrooms and kitchen. There is a full wet bar in the living room, complete with beautiful wine, martini, beer and margarita glasses for your enjoyment. There is a sound system throughout the unit, including speakers on the balcony! The high-end dining table seats 8-10 comfortably. There is also a cozy sitting area adjacent to the dining room with a gas fireplace. The kitchen and bathrooms have just been renovated with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, including a double over and french door refrigerator, vessel sinks, heated Jacuzzi, and rainfall shower-head!

This beautiful condo offers two gorgeous master bedrooms with king beds - each with its own private spa bath and balcony overlooking the Gulf. A third bedroom has two double beds and a huge window with a stunning view of the lake. An additional sleeper sofa is located in the living room. Large tiled balconies facing both the front and rear with ample comfortable seating provide a place for sunbathing, reading, dining or just enjoying the view.

In the living room, you will find a TV with an HD converter, iPod docking cables, movies, and board games. This condo is perfect for a family vacation and provides all the comforts of home right on the Gulf of Mexico. Speaking of the beach, we have also provided two beach chairs and an umbrella in your condo, so you can enjoy a relaxing day on the sand!

The free passes are per reservation and not per guest. They are non-cumulative. Guests can use passes at different activities on the same day. For instance, a guest could play 18 holes of golf for free in the morning and then go on a free dolphin cruise on the same afternoon. The card also entitles you to do an activity more than once for free. For example, if you wanted to golf daily, each day of your stay (excluding day of departure), one person in your party could golf for free.

About Destin Palms Vacations

We are a family of five and we absolutely LOVE Destin. We have a second condo in the adjacent Majestic Sun. Needless to say we visit regularly and the area has become part of our family's vacation tradition.

Why Destin Palms Vacations chose Miramar Beach

We cherish this property and enjoy using it as much as possible. We are grateful to have found one of the most beautiful and spacious properties in Destin... and most importantly, with spectacular and sweeping ocean views! We furnish and maintain it to the highest standard so that our guests can have a truly memorable experience! This wont be the cheapest unit but you wont be disappointed. Our nearby management team will ensure that your stay is well looked after. We are blessed to have many repeat visitors :)

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is centrally located to many major attractions in the Destin area. We are minutes away from world class shopping, restaurants, family attractions, and of course, one of America's top beaches just steps away from the condo. The property is secure, the region is upscale and the unit is very unique!

The only place to stay in Destin

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th year at the Empress, 3rd year in 601. We loved every minute of the vacation. The property manager is always very helpful. The location is spectacular and the views from the balcony are breathtaking. The condo is well appointed and more than large enough for the 10 of us. We will continue to book this condo as long as it is available. Our family loves our time together in Destin and is the most relaxing vacation we have every taken.

Beautiful Place, Beautiful View, But Condo Not Stocked Adequately

  • 2 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was more than helpful.

The vacation rental was very clean.

I was very happy with the location.

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Location was beautiful and the condo was beautiful. Really nice furniture and decor, great internet and the master bed slept like a dream, but that's where the good ended. For a large place that accommodates up to 13, we were allowed 12 towels, which went fast. Doing laundry every day isn't my idea of a great vacation. Also, the kitchen utensils were really lacking for a place of this caliber. Make sure you bring your own, well, everything. If not, you're going to be shopping for toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, garbage bags,etc. on your first day there. The washer and dryer were older and the dryer took 3 cycles to dry beach towels. The laundry room in general smells like sewer, especially in the evening. As another renter stated, the master bedroom a/c wasn't working so we were dealing with that the 1st night and a mobile a/c sitting in the floor, venting out a window the entire stay. For a place this elegant, there needs to be some improvements.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are wondering if you took advantage of our phone app which gives a lot of information regarding the unit. The unit is set up with a variety of items in small quantities as you described to assist the guest on arrival but we do not stock amenities for the entire stay. We appreciate your observation on the towels and have made that correction to increase the number of towels in the unit. We also show additional towels were delivered immediately upon your request and the Air Conditioner issue was resolved as well by adjusting the 2nd Thermostat in the unit to make your stay more comfortable. We are sorry your stay was not what you expected and hope you will come back again so we can better serve you in the future. Your feedback is important to us and we are taking corrective actions. Thank you again for all your observations. Destin Palms Management

Reviewer Comments:

First let me clarify...This is a very nice condo and it is massive. 3 large bedrooms and 3 large bathrooms with a full dining area and living room. I think 2,600sq.ft. The view is magnificent. And it is big enough for a person with a walker to move about, I know, I took my father. This is a nice condo that could be a magnificent condo with some TLC. Needs new lawn furniture and cushions. New comforters and decorator pillows. Better cookware. And a refurbishment of decorator items that have been damaged. It is centrally located, steps from the beach and the pool is mostly unused so if you do decide you want some quiet it is a good place to read or nap. Good walking area in front and rentals are quickly available for bikes. I would definetly rent again if some simple upgrades were made...

Reviewer Comments:

Condo was beautiful & very spacious! Amazing views of the beach on one balcony and peaceful views of the inlet and golf course on another balcony! Beds were comfy and it was nice to have a washer and dryer. However, upon our arrival one of the master bedrooms and bathrooms had a VERY bad mildew smell! It was pretty dang BAD! But once I discovered it was a wet, mildewed shower mat, we set it outside on the balcony and I sprayed some room spray and the smell went away. There were some cobwebs in the fake greenery too. There was also construction going on the condo right below us for a couple of days. It was loud and obnoxious. Also, we had a surprise visit from a maintenance worker one morning who said he needed to inspect the unit. We all felt awkward and even wondered if he was legit. We assume he was just weird having someone come inspect the unit during our stay. I figured they would do that after we checked out. The balconies could use a good cleaning too. If someone could get up there with a blower to blow off all the sand and maybe mop one good time it would make a big difference. We loved the spacious kitchen and rooms! We can't wait for our next vacation at the beach!
