Property description

The Empress Unit 601 embodies all that it implies: luxurious furnishings, spectacular accessories, balconies with sweeping Gulf AND Lake views -- in short, 2600 sq ft of breathtaking elegance. This unit is truly one of the largest, most beautiful and best located condos in Destin. RECENTLY RENOVATED. This amazing 3BR/3BA 6th floor unit with a spacious floor plan offers unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico, lake, and golf course from virtually anywhere in the Condo. Unobstructed views to the east and west from the Gulf front balcony provide gorgeous sunrise for that morning coffee and spectacular sunsets as you sip on an evening cocktail.

Creamy earth tones welcome you to the lap of luxury, where each bedroom has the utmost privacy and the best views in town. 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!

3BR: This unit has TWO gorgeous master bedrooms with king beds - each with its own private spa like 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. There is an electric grill on the lakeside balcony for those evening barbecues and a trash chute so you don’t have to leave the condo!

This spectacular condo is professionally decorated and has all the comforts of home, including a state of the art kitchen, laundry, four flat screen televisions with DVD players, and high speed wifi internet. The main TV also has a HD converter. Ipod docking cables allow you to immerse the entire unit with your musical taste. We also have movies for the whole family and games for your children. You will not find a more luxurious and spacious condo than this one!

With this rental, you are provided with two beach chairs and an umbrella in your condo that you can take to the beach, in lieu of spending $40 a day using the local beach service operator.

All Destin Palms Vacations guests receive a free Destin Palms VIP Perks Card that provides free passes to the area’s most popular attractions. Each day of your stay, you will receive one free adult pass to a charter fishing excursion, a dolphin cruise aboard the SeaBlaster speed boat, and 18-holes of golfing at three different Sandestin courses.

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.

Free golf and charter fishing excursions are available year-round. The dolphin cruise operates March-October. Perks are not available to monthly renters.

The Empress is a private gated property with only 44 units, semi-private elevators, private reserved parking, its own pool, and a beautifully renovated new lobby.
