One of the largest 2 Bd, 2Ba condos in Destin, Huge Patio overlooking the Gulf
About Adam Kautzner
We are a happy christian family of five that purchased this private retreat for our faimly, church family, friends and guests. We were highschool and college sweethearts and have been together now for more than half our lives. At home we are extremely busy with work and activities for our three outstanding young children. We are the epitomy of normal, we both work demanding jobs as pharmacists and strive to do our best for our patients everyday. Because of this, we wanted a place to relax and unwind with our kids. The kind of place where time stands still and you can leave your watch at home. We absolutely love Florida and having a family retreat for us to share has been a dream for us. Most importantly we want to show our children how important it is to take time out and stay connected with eachother and having this place we hope will allow us to keep doing that as they grow older.
Adam Kautzner purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Adam Kautzner chose Holiday Isle
Living in St. Louis we wanted a vacation home within a one day drive and lucky for us one of the best beach communities in the country is just 12 hours away. We love the hometown feel of Destin and how family friendly it is. During our recent home search we evaluated properties from rowdy Panama City Beach, to 30A, through Destin and then on to Fort Walton Beach. In all we looked at about 50 properties in our price range but in the end absolutely fell in love with the Aegean. From the time we saw the unique architecture of the Aegean and terrific layout of the complex we new it was the one. Lucky for us, the most private and secluded unit in the entire complex was for sale. Our unit was still in the original owners family as are many of the Aegean units stil today. To us this speaks to how unique and family friendly the Aegean is. This unit sits directly on the beach, the best of true gulf front living, you can't be any closer to the sugar sand and emeral green waters. We love the expansive patio, one of biggest I've ever seen with a condo and the fact that you can walk right off it onto the sand and beach without ever having to go into a building or mess with an elevator or stairs is a huge plus. Our unit is over 1500 sq ft with a huge living space and new kitchen. The bedrooms are also very large letting everyone have some space. Amenities: Very Large Pool and it isn't jammed with people since the complex is low density. Two gulf front shuffleboard courts Two tennis courts 3 stainless gas grills overlooking the gulf Lots of green space for the kids to play Security-gated complex with security (not that you'll need it, Holiday Isle is the safest little place around but still good for peace of mind)
What makes this Condo unique
* TRUE GULF FRONT patio unit at the Aegean with the best patio furniture and only one with an observation deck! Plus it's a rare end unit away from everyone making it the best location in the entire complex! *Spacious 2BD, you won't find a larger 2BD unit in Destin. At 1510 sq. ft it's over 500 sq. ft larger than many others. *Patio is 576 sq ft, many balconies in Destin are a fraction of the size around 150 sq ft *No elevator or building entry, walk out your large glass doors in the master bedroom or living room right to the beach or go out your front door to the pool. *Our beach is NOT crowded. The Aegean has over 500 ft of beach width for only 80 units so you have space to yourself in the heart of Destin without feeling cramped. If you've been to Destin in the summer you'll understand how unique and exclusive this is. You will not be disappointed with the beach space! *New renourished beach is in and ready for your enjoyment adding over 200 ft of sugar sand right off your patio. *New Kitchen with quality hickory cabinets and granite countertops. *Large bedrooms, each is 18X13, you will appreciate the luxury of space and tons of storage so there is no clutter. *Walk to the East Jetty and Harbor for the best snorkeling in Destin. *Serenity and peace, it's like your own beach home with all the amenities of a high end condo.

Loved the property .. Wished the ac would drop lower than 70
Would definitely rent again !
Glad you enjoyed your stay!
Second time staying here. Love the place, the space you have, and the overall decor. It's also nice to have plenty of space on the patio with a grassy area to play games. Easy walk to the beach. Since it's on the first floor, the view is good but not great but there are trade offs with most places. Very close to most things you will want to do.
Cannot wait to come back!!
The condo was clean, comfortable, and convenient to anything you could want or need. We were traveling with our three boys ages 10, 8 and 3 and my parents who are in their 70s. It was so easy to get to the beach, we could easily go back and forth for naps for our toddler, snacks, etc. The umbrella and chair setup each day was wonderful! If you like to sit on the beach in the evening though, be sure to bring your own chair or use one of the ones provided at the condo bc they take the umbrella and chairs down around 5.
The pool area is clean and beautiful. Our 8 year old learned how to swim while we were there. We love the rules in place at the complex: it keeps it very family-friendly and relaxing.
You can easily see the ocean from the patio area, but you can’t see the waves breaking on the shore bc it is ground level. We loved sitting in the high platform chairs and watching the boats with our binoculars. We saw dolphins four different times, twice they were super close to the shore. Definitely a highlight.
We had very minor maintenance issues (lightbulbs and toaster) and they were handled promptly and everyone we talked to was friendly, not like some places where they make you feel like you’re bothering them if you have a problem.
The owners got back to us quickly any time we had a question and were wonderful to work with. We love Destin and try to come at least once a year. We’ll be coming back here again for sure!!
Enjoyed Aegean 101
We had a great time! Condo is very roomy with lots of closets and drawers. Owner very easy to reach! Would stay here again. Convenient location to restaurants, drugstores and grocery store.
Clean and cozy with the beach in your backyard!
We loved this condo! The unit was clean, spacious, and had everything we would ever need - kitchen was fully stocked! The complex is very clean and quiet as well - it was the perfect family vacation spot! Nice grilling spots, beautiful pool area that is very well kept. Being steps from the beach was so nice! Thank you for a great unit, we will be back!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay!
Great beachfront condo!
A beautifully decorated, spacious and well equipped condo!
Our condo is situated on Holiday Isle which is the perfect central location to do it all in Destin. You are on a secluded isle with perfect uncrowded beaches but only 3 minutes from Hwy 98 and everything Destin has to offer.
Five minutes to Destin Harbor and the fun of all the boats, shops and restaurants.
The best snorkeling in the area is just a short walk down the beach by the east Jetty where the tourist boats bring customers but you can relax there for free.
The Destin Sands Outlet Mall is only 8 miles away and Destin Commons is also just a short 5 minute drive down Hwy 98.
Virtually any type of store and restaurant from Bass Pro to Starbucks and everything in between are within a short drive.
For those wanting to see Okaloosa Island you are just minutes from the bridge and 10 minutes from the fun on Fort Walton Beach.
Any type of restaurant you could want is close by if you decide to venture out or stay in and take advantage of our three high end stainless grills overlooking the Gulf. Big Kahuna Waterpark is also minutes away as is miniature golf. For adults we offer Tennis and Shuffleboard onsite and many golf courses closeby.
30A also is just down the coast for a fun day of exporing in Seaside and Rosemary Beach or keep on going and head to the pier in Panama City Beach an hour to the south.
We searched from Okaloosa Island to Panama City Beach and everything in between when looking for the perfect spot and are certain you'll agree Holiday Isle is it. The serenity and beauty of Okaloosa Island coupled with the fun of Destin but you're much closer here on the Isle.
Now with our newly renourished beaches you can have a top notch resort in the heart of Destin and still with an hour of an International airport.
