About the property

2 BR, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6.

*** Get this 2 BR for the same rate as our 1 BR, #419 *** $160/night August 12 to September 29 *** You can't beat these rates, and you're getting one of the most popular condos at the resort.

*** 7TH NIGHT IS ALWAYS FREE WITH A 6-NIGHT RESERVATION (Automatically calculated into your quote when you select a 7-night stay.) ***

Unit #415 was newly remodeled in 2014 and sits right on the beach. Enjoy your morning coffee on your private balcony while you take in stunning views of the beautiful white sand beach and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. At sunset, listen to the sound of the waves as you sip a glass of wine on the balcony or sit on the steps of the boardwalk.

Features of this pretty condo include a beautiful new kitchen with granite countertops, breakfast bar, and adjoining dining area with dry bar with tile floors throughout. A 42-inch flat screen TV with new VCR/DVD combo is in the living room with a wonderful selection of classic Disney videos to keep the kids entertained. Each bedroom has a wall-mounted 32-inch flat screen TV with DVD. Complimentary WiFi is also included.

You'll enjoy a great night's sleep on the new Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses in both bedrooms -- a king in the master and queen in the guest bedroom. The recently purchased La-Z-Boy queen-size sleeper sofa and recliner await in the living room. Both bathrooms have plenty of extra storage, granite countertops, and there is even a jetted tub in the master. We love it there and hope you do, too!

This unit has HD Cable with the SEC Channel in the living room. Dad can watch the game while Mom and the kids head to the beach. Everybody wins!

Complimentary WiFi.

Walk out the back door of the building to the private beach - no parking lots or streets to cross.

NEED TWO CONDOS FOR YOUR VACATION?? Check out Unit #419 (1 BR, 1 Bath - listing #694171), just 4 doors down from #415. Perfect for family vacations.

REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR BEACH TOWELS!!!

Laundry facilities are conveniently located just a few steps down the hall. Enjoy the heated pool, lighted tennis courts, exercise facilities and sauna on-site. Nearby activities include windsurfing, para sailing, snorkeling and deep sea fishing.

Holiday Surf & Racquet Club is located on Holiday Isle, a quiet peninsula situated between the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Highway 98, yet still conveniently located near area family attractions and great dining experiences in and around the Destin Harbor area.

Here are a few nearby restaurants that we’ve tried and really like - in no particular order:

1. Dewey Destin's Harborside Restaurant

2. Boshamps Seafood and Oyster House

3. Marina Cafe - (Destin’s “most awarded” restaurant)

4. Harbor Docks - a local favorite.

5. AJ’s - They also have a great party boat - you'll be singing YMCA like the Village People on your way back to the harbor. Seriously.

6. Margaritaville - They have gluten-free burger buns for those with issues who still enjoy a burger now and then.

7. McGuires Irish Pub - . Great food, open late, and have their own micro brewery. Hubby says it might possibly be the best beer he's ever had. Others rave about their steaks and prime rib.

8. The Donut Hole (we LOVE this place for breakfast). Outstanding donuts and desserts; check out the dieter's special (which we refer to as a heart attack on a plate - but OMG! It is delicious!!). The lines get long here for breakfast; takeout will be quicker.

9. Bric a Brac - Word from one of our guests is that the new Bric a Brac restaurant right there on Holiday Isle is a must see. According to the website there is great food and jazz on the weekends. Can't wait to try this one out!

10. The Back Porch - This is a local favorite, and right on the beach. Gluten-free options. Best drinks in Destin. Hands down!

11. Pompano Joe's - The Travel Channel has featured Pompano Joe's as the ultimate beach shack and one of the world's best beach restaurants. Gluten-free options. Also right on the beach. Beach volleyball, anyone?

There are many, many other restaurants and steak houses - pretty much any food and price range you could imagine.

The condo is located close to Target, Winn Dixie grocery store, liquor store, the nail salon...

Things to do at the Harbor. So much fun!

Big Kahuna's Water Park!

Great shopping at the Silver Sands Outlet Mall!

LINEN/HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE: Our unit will be cleaned to quality standards prior to your arrival and after your departure. Laundry facilities are located on the fourth and sixth floors of the resort. The unit will be stocked with a starter supply of trash liners, toilet paper, bath soap and dishwasher soap.

Why Pam & Dave chose Florida North West

Dave and I had been looking to purchase a unit at Holiday Surf for nearly two years. It took some time to find just the right one, but we were patient and it paid off. We were able to renovate and make this one just what we wanted.

We love how close Holiday Surf is to Destin Harbor. Whether we want an evening of fine dining, or something more casual, there are many, many wonderful restaurants nearby on Destin Harbor. Of course, we also love to visit the Silver Sands Outlet Mall and the stores and restaurants in the Santa Rosa Beach 30A area.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the quiet, low traffic area on Holiday Isle and appreciate the emphasis on guest comfort that we have found at Holiday Surf & Racquet Club. There is nothing like an early morning walk on the beach -- so quiet and peaceful. We love listening to families outside playing tennis or splashing in the pool or on the beach during the day. Their laughter is contagious! You'll leave for home relaxed and refreshed -- already thinking about next year's vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation. Hope to reserve your unit again next year. Our girls had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Updated and Fun Unit!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo with all the beach gear (wagon, umbrella, boogie boards, floats, chairs, etc.) provided. The unit is very clean and cozy. The owner is very fast in her response time. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The location is perfect with lots of shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores in close proximity. The walk to the beach looked far in the pictures, but it was not far at all in person.

Adorable!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was simply adorable! Every year seven of us go on a girls trip to the beach, so we usually get a 3 bedroom. This year, only five of us were able to go the entire time, so we looked for a 2 bedroom and found this precious, classy little condo and were thoroughly satisfied. We also took advantage of the tennis courts! Pam was WONDERFUL! She was quick to respond to any questions that we had about the condo. :) I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! We really appreciate that - almost as much as we do knowing that our guests had a great time. Keeping longstanding friendships alive is one of life's great joys and we are so happy we got to play a small part in making this year's trip a good one. We hope you will think of us again the next time you are in Destin. Thank you for being such wonderful guests! Pam & Dave

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very clean and the kitchen nicely stocked. Great communication with owners. Nice family beach/condo. No problems with parking or elevator. Great location to grocery stores and restaurants. Unfortunately since this condo didn't come with the chair rentals that spread ALL across the beach, we had to set up our chairs at the far end (we even beat the guy setting up chairs at 6:30 AM but still had to move further down). Refused to pay daily rate for renting those beach chairs when this condo had 3 older ones for our use. We were a family of 6, but were only left 5 bath towels, so had to use W/D down near elevator to wash them. We also had to use the pull out couch, which those are never comfortable. The bathroom fans turn on when the bathroom light is turned on and they were very noisy. Didn't really care for having to walk thru lobby to get to pool and beach although the staff was always friendly. All in all it was a good family beach trip and I appreciate Pam letting us rent her condo :).

Owner's Response: We're very glad that you enjoyed your beach vacation. We wish things had been perfect for you and try very hard to make that happen. Thank you for your understanding and for your suggestions. We greatly appreciate it and will take those things into consideration when we refresh the condo again this year.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback on the condo. It really helps us to know what we need to do to stay on top of things. We'll also be doing a refresh on the whole condo this fall once the rental season slows down. Most of all, we are glad that you had a wonderful vacation. Thanks so much for choosing our condo. We hope to see you again next time you're in Destin! Pam & Dave

Car: recommended

Lovely quiet location, directly on the beach, but close to Destin Harbor pubs and many wonderful seafood restaurants. Try a sunset wine and cheese cruise or go deep sea fishing.

Many family activities and attractions are located nearby, such as the Big Kahuna Water Park and Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park. It's just a short drive to Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall.

So many options! So little time!
