100 STEPS TO BEACH ACCESS!! 'The Destin Boomerang', Owners since 12/09, we completed a full upscale renovation of this main house for your comfort and enjoyment in May 2012 and cabana house in 2015. We have thought of just about everything - just bring your swimsuits and sunscreen. Enjoy such luxuries as the granite/stainless kitchen, flat screen TVs and DVD players in every bedroom and living area, Wii and X-box360 for the kids in the spectacular bunk room , an extensive video collection as well as games and books for all ages. Enjoy the comfort of the Egyptian cotton sheets and premium bedding sets. Each floor has its own HVAC unit for comfort throughout. Amenities galore, we want you coming back!
Situated with just one house between you and the sugary white sand beaches that Destin is famous for. The house itself is nearly 2800 sf with another 600 sf spread out over 6 private balconies and porches! You will enjoy the shops and restaurants at the Destin Commons just 4 short blocks away.
Layout: 1st floor: Living room, Dining area, Kitchen, Full bathroom, Fantastic Bunk room, Laundry room.
Enjoy watching a DVD on the 55' flat screen from the comfortable leather sleeper/sofa. Or just enjoy curling up and reading a good novel in the matching love seat while the kids and mom or dad are off fighting the waves. The living room flows into the dining area where you will enjoy a fabulous 'Chic Teak' dining table for 8 with water hyacinth chairs and 4 matching bar stools along the counter for plenty of seating. The kitchen is a gourmet's dream! Stainless everything and granite counter tops accented with a tumbled marble back splash.
Off the kitchen is the kid's spectacular retreat with two sets of bunk beds (queen over queen and full over full) for an availability of 8 to sleep. 2 desk nooks at the end of each bunk for down time. They can also enjoy watching a video or playing with the supplied Wii (just make sure they don't spend all their time indoors on vacation!).
2nd and 3rd floors: 2nd: Master Bedroom and second king bedroom (each attached with bathroom with tile showers and jacuzzi tub as well in master).
Master features a pillow top king bed. Step through the French doors to your private balcony and enjoy the sounds of crashing waves. Or just pop in a DVD and wind down a perfect day. The jetted tub surrounded by tile will further relax you, or enjoy the separate shower if you prefer.
The second bedroom is also appointed with a king size bed and attached bathroom. It has a balcony that overlooks the private pool.
3rd: Queen Bedroom 'the Seashell room' with private balcony and fabulous gulf views.
The 3rd floor living room enjoys another comfortable Chenille fabric sleeper/sofa and sports a wet bar with upscale refrigerator. The huge rear balcony, overlooking the pool, has sweeping gulf views and proved to offer a great vantage point to watch New Year's fireworks. New patio furniture on this balcony offers great area to play cards or enjoy the breeze.
Cabana House and Pool: Between the main house and cabana is the 12x24 pool (3 to 5 ft deep - no diving). We have plenty of lounge chairs as well to accommodate larger parties. A nearly 1000 sf paver stone deck for plenty of entertainment room. Have a family ping-pong tournament or just soak in the sun. There is a gas grill and an outdoor shower to clean up with before going back inside.
The cabana house, renovated for the 2015 season, includes a private king bedroom with separate entry. While this room will share a bathroom with the bunk room, it has its own separate vanity for privacy while getting ready. The cabana also has a bunk room with queen over queen bunks. There is a full bathroom which now includes a tiled walk-in shower.

About Jon or Jennifer
Hi, we are the Duke family. We have been married for 25 years and have 3 great boys! We just moved to the Destin area and are loving the close proximity to the beach, fishing, and boating! We are the owners as well as the managers of the house so you will not have to worry about any third party red tape!
Jon or Jennifer purchased this House in 2009
Why Jon or Jennifer chose Destin
We want to give our guests the best of both worlds- the fabulous sugary white sand beach access just a 100 steps away and a private backyard with a pool, ping pong table, and gas grill to call your own! The proximity to the beach cannot be beat! We fell in love with this particular location because of the family friendly neighborhood! All of the homes that surround us are vacation rentals so everyone is relaxed and on vacation as well, and that makes a big difference! We loved the Destin area so much that we just recently moved from the Memphis area and became LOCALS! Living the Dream! It is drivable from so many areas throughout the country. We love all of the family oriented restaurants and activities in the area. The kids like the water park, Big Kahuna, and Mom and Dad like the many patio restaurants with live music to enjoy a bite with the family while sipping on some great beach concoctions . Of course the crown jewel is the sugary white beach where we spend many hours.
What makes this House unique
We have 8 years of experience owning vacation rentals and are attuned to what the vacationer wants! Now that we are locals, we are just a phone call away! We provide just about everything you will need for a beach vacation right at the house! We supply several beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys, 12 beach towels (because there is someone who always forgets) and a great beach cart to load all this paraphernalia down to the beach. We also have a fully stocked kitchen, Wii and X-box for the kids, paperback books for the beach, and tons of movies on DVD for adults and kids alike! We also supply a Pack n Play as well as a highchair! The Destin Boomerang, You'll want to come "Right Back"!

House was great for large families! Close to beach
Loved the house! We had a party of 19 and the house slept everyone comfortably. Jon and Jennifer were great to work with. Just steps away from the beautiful beach!
Beautiful home, fantastic location!
We rented the Boomerang house for a family reunion. The weather in Destin didn't cooperate but the house had so much to offer that we barely noticed. The kids swam in the heated pool, played ping pong and took advantage of the two minute walk to the beach. The owners were beyond accommodating and even dropped by a new bean bag game for us to use. The bedrooms were large and gave everyone plenty of room to spread out. We loved the outdoor space, location and spacious home. We plan to return soon!
All around fantastic!
I completely agree with all the wonderful things that have been said about this property, and Jennifer and Jon! My family with a few friends came down just after Christmas and had a great time. There were 24 of us, pretty equally divided between adults and children. That number included several teens, so we brought a couple of blowup beds, so they could spread out. We got very lucky with great weather in the 70's, then 60's. We used the nice, warm pool everyday. The ocean is 3 houses down with a beautiful beach. I had never been to Destin. I have been to beaches all over the world, and this sand with the color and consistency of powdered sugar, makes it rank at the top. The chairs and beach toys were also much appreciated, along with all the extras included with this house. Every night someone made a gourmet meal in a very well supplied kitchen. I stayed in the cabana, which is at ground level for which my knees were thankful! Thanks again for your quick responses to us Jen and Jon, and we can't wait to return! Ann Canty
Beautiful Home, Great Location
The Destin Boomerang was a perfect place for our rather large family of 21 to spend our summer vacation. Any questions we had before and during our trip were answered in no time. The house was very clean and beautifully decorated. The house was well stocked with everything we could possibly need to make our week comfortable and FUN!!! The beach was directly across the street (maybe a 1 minute walk) which was very nice as we had several children under 5 years old. The best part about that was the carts provided by the Dukes in which we could pack ALL of our beach gear rather than carrying it or having to bring our own wagons from home. In addition, Jennifer and Jon provided us with plenty of information about local attractions. We rented pontoon boats and spent one afternoon at Crab Island. We went crabbing on the beach several evenings. The kids thought that was so exciting! We spent an afternoon and the Gulfarium, which was neat. We rented scooters and go-carts. And finally, the best breakfast I've had in a long time was at Another Broken Egg Cafe. Great food and bloody mary's! So, again, thank you Duke family for your incredible attention to detail which allowed us to make lasting memories in Destin this year!!
Awesome vacation home
We had 6 families, 22 people ages 48 to 7 years old - it is absolutely beautiful. Perfect location , very close to beach, everything you need for going to the beach, beds slept great, driveway was big enough for all our vehicles, the pool was very nice and convenient. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a beach vacation ! Jennifer is great to deal with, any questions you have she responds quickly! Thank you again for great memories we made!
AWESOME FAMILY VACATION
We absolutely loved this house. This was our first family vacation with all our kids and grandkids all 20 of us, plus my Mom was able to join us too. The house was so well decorated and updated and clean. It was very well stocked with everything you needed. The layout was perfect, as each family had there own private area and we were not all over each other. The walk to the beach was so convenient to the beach that those who needed to go back to the house were able to easily. All the grandchildren loved the pool and the adults love the large area around where we were able to gather and talk and watch the kids.
There is so much to do in Destin and we were right there with easy access to everything.
I would highly recommend this property. It is definitely a place we will return to.
We are just steps to the public beach access (100 steps) Our location can't be beat! So close, in fact, that when someone in your family forgets a boogie board or snack, the house is just a heartbeat away!
Fabulous restaurants are within walking distance of the house or grill out right in our backyard on our fabulous gas grill while the family swims and has ping pong tournaments!
Hire a expert sand castle expert to give your family lessons on sculpting a magical sand castle! I have seen there demonstrations and tips! What fun for the whole family!
The Silversands Outlet Mall is within 3 miles of the house and has fantastic shopping. The Destin Commons Mall is just 1/2 mile away and contains a great movie theater.
Big Kahuna, a water slide park, is just 3 miles down the road. There is also an amusement park called the Track Destin that has Go-Karts, mini gold, kiddie rides, and more.
Bowling anyone? A great new island themed 16 lane bowling alley and grill just opened up last year and is called Uncle Buck's FishBowl and Grill! Our family has had great times competing while eating appetizers and drinking cocktails and sodas while bowling. Sports games are also televised on giant screens!
