About David Barnes
I grew up in Andalusia Alabama.I attended the university of Alabama then Jacksonville State. My career in organic chemistry took me to Gadsden Alabama, Atlanta, and Charlotte. When the next move was to Cleveland ,I opted to semiretire and come home to Destin.My grandparents built a home here in the 1920s and we took all our vacations here as a family when I was growing up.I am so lucky that I found this unit at Waterview Towers for my new home. It is truly a slice of paradise. I literally wouldnt trade it for any other property in Destin. I recently married a lovely lady from New Orleans and we now spend most of our time there. Consequently, I now offer this unit to my customers and hope they will enjoy it as much as I have over the years. Since it was my home for so long it is appointed like a home not like a typical rental property.It has excellent mattresses,sheets, pillows,etc. The kitchen is fully outfitted with quality pots/pans/utensils,etc. My sister is an artist, 'Patterson Barnes', and my unit has many of her original art pieces, giving my unit a more homey feel. I simply cannot sufficiently describe how much joy this unit has brought to my life. It is a special property. I hope you will come and experience the same. I hope to meet you. warmly, David Barnes

Our 1st trip to Destin
Property location was very nice. It had a lovely balcony where we spent most of our time. We loved watching the water, boats, parasailing and dolphins. It was a nice quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of Destin. Awesome location to watch the fireworks show. The property itself was roomy and comfortable.
My only complaints were the lack of direct beach access for smaller children and older adults. I was aware that this condo was not directly on the beach but on the pass however I do wish it had better more direct access to the water. The property does have access but you have to sit in a wall and jump down which can be difficult for some. The condo itself although clean and comfortable could use some overall updating, maintenance and TLC. There were lightbulbs that were out and the kitchen lights constantly flickered. Some of the beach chairs provided were broken - luckily we brought our own. The balcony furniture probably needs to be replaced and some additional seating provided (only enough for 4 people).
We did have a nice time here and overall a pleasant experience for our 1st trip to Destin.
Great Experience & 4th of July
This was a GREAT condo. It was just how it is listed. All the people at the condo were so nice and friendly, and we really enjoyed our stay and all the company. Great views for the fireworks. We plan on doing this again, Thanks David!!!
The condo was beautiful and the views were simply amazing! We absolutely loved our stay!
The BEST of Destin
Breath taking views and an oasis of privacy in an otherwise very busy Destin! My family and I chose to go to Destin during peak season but this condo offered us our own private pool and beach. We enjoyed dolphins, sea turtles and even the occassional manatee. The condo offers two spacious bedrooms with their own full bathrooms and both have beautiful views. We enjoyed the convenience of the water taxi, which picked us up just steps from the condo and took us to many of Destin's attractions. We have staying in Destin for years and this condo offers the best of what is Destin! Thank you David for sharing your beautiful condo with us! We are already planning our next visit.
Great Vacation in Destin Florida
Thanks for the opportunity to check in at 12 noon, (unusual, normally 4 PM). We were able to unpack, get set up, and start our fun at the beautiful pool and hot tub just five floors below. As advertised, and more, the fifth floor large balcony was a wonderful place to gather for morning coffee, watch the boats go in and out of the Gulf, enjoy our own Dolphin's show in the morning and evening, and observe beautiful sunsets in the evening. What a view! Being a fairly small complex, compared to others in the area, the private beach and pool (guests and owners only) were never crowded and the elevators very prompt. Great floor plan for six people. Large rooms. We all had our own quiet privacy. The Keurig coffee maker was a great asset. Just like ours at home and easy to use. The Condo was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, wine glasses and every other kitchen gadget and utensil one would need. We enjoyed the sliding glass doors across the front on both bedrooms and the living room area. The sounds of the waves in the evening were a lullaby that put us to sleep. Thanks for creating memories for us and our Grandsons.
Thanks for your kind review.. we think our building is kinda special.
Pls consider coming again
Location, location, location
Located in Waterview Towers, at the quiet end of Holiday Isle, makes this a great location. One of the best views of the East Pass from this condo, you can watch unobstructed views of the fishing and leisure boats, schools of fish and dolphins. Someone asked why I would stay right in the hubbub of Destin? Holiday Isle gives you excellent proximity to all that Destin offers within minutes but allows you to return to the peace and quiet of the Waterview Towers away from the traffic and crowds.
Location, location, location!
Well said there, my friend.
I love how you share my wonder of the gulf/pass view from the 5th floor balcony of this unit.
Sincere thanks for your repeat business over the years🙋�🏼�♂️
Waterview is near the end of holiday isle.This unit has a great layout with walls of windows to the gulf from every room.The view is stunning!
It has a great pool area, lushly landscaped, that is waterfront. There is a marina on the harbor,just on the backside of the property.boatslips are available for rent. It is a smaller, somewhat quieter complex.
