About the property

Welcome to Paradise! At 506 Magnolia House we offer the best of all beach vacation worlds.


Magnolia House has the best view in Destin. Look out your balcony. To the left is the Gulf of Mexico; it’s no secret how beautiful that is. Straight ahead is the East Pass; this is where all of the boats have to travel to get from the Destin harbor to the Gulf of Mexico. Yachts, fishing boats, dolphin cruises, pirate ships, snorkeling cruises – if they need to get to the Gulf they’re going to travel past your balcony. This is easily the most varied and interesting water view in town. That’s not all. Look to your right; that’s the Destin Harbor. The harbor is a mecca of restaurants, bars, specialty shops, entertainment, and water sports. If you’ve been to Destin before you know about the harbor; if you haven’t this is a must visit location. You’ll be busy but take time to watch the sunsets . . . they will cleanse your soul. You won’t find anything better.

Are you looking for a beautiful beach? We have a deal for you! At Magnolia house you have a choice of two full service beaches. Look out your balcony and you see the beach on the East Pass. There’s nothing between you and this beach but the dunes. The beach is located next to the locally famous Destin jetties. This is where the many of the charter boats take their passengers to snorkel. It’s also a favorite spot for fishermen. Destin Pointe is the only direct land access to the jetties. Stay somewhere else and you have to take a boat or hike about a mile down the beach to get there. For you it’s a short walk over the dunes. If you like to fish, snorkel or watch the boats go by this is a great option. If you’d rather visit a traditional Gulf beach – that’s you other option. Our private beach on the Gulf of Mexico is beautiful like all of the Destin beaches but it has something many don’t, space. It’s the same fabulous beach people flock to down the road but since it's private to Destin Pointe residents and guests it has a lot smaller crowd. There are two ways to get to the Gulf beach. If you’re inclined you can walk. It’s a pleasant 5-minute stroll crossing a boardwalk bridge over a scenic lake. If you’re tired, carrying a load or just don’t want to walk, you don’t have too. Call the tram. It runs in the spring, summer and fall. It’s free and will pick you up next to the elevator on the ground floor. There’s a phone at that stop and at the beach pavilion; call when you’re ready – they’ll come and get you. To you enjoy this beach even further we provide two beach chairs and an umbrella - these are complementary with your rental; identify yourself to the beach service and they'll set them up for you. The beaches while offering different experiences are both part of the sugar white sandy beaches that have made Destin famous. There’s a reason why Destin has consistently been rated as having one of the top 10 beaches in the world.

Tired of the beach (really?) There are two pools on the resort. You can’t miss the first one; you can see it from your balcony. This one includes a hot tub and has one of the rare heated pools in Destin. There are also barbecue grills located here so break out the steaks. The other pool is located next to the beach pavilion. You’ll see it when you go to the gulf beach. This is a gorgeous pool complete with jets spraying decorative water displays. If this isn’t enough of a change Big Kahunas, our local water park, is just a five-minute drive away. Look it up on line - it’s definitely worth a visit.

Do you want a quiet getaway on the water? Magnolia House is wonderfully situated in the secluded section of Holiday Isle in central Destin, within the private gates of the Destin Pointe community. This one of the best spots anywhere on the Emerald Coast! Your privacy is insured with the only 24/7 guarded security residential subdivision along the Destin, Florida beach.

Looking for family friendly events? Big Kahunas, The Track, mini golf, bowling, pirate ships, dolphin cruises and every water sport you can imagine are all a short drive (or boat ride) away.

Do you to party the night (and maybe day) away? Call the water taxi. They’ll pick you up and bring you back to Noriega Point beach (opposite side of the harbor from A'J's restaurant). They’ll take you anywhere you want to go on the harbor. AJ’s, Margaretville, and Harry T’s are all a short boat ride away.

How about fireworks? The view from your balcony puts you at virtually ground zero for the Harbor Walk’s famous firework displays. Displays occur on holidays and weekly during the summer season. Don’t fight the crowds; sit on your balcony. It’s the best seat in town.

Do you like to eat? Use the same water taxi or your car to get to one of our famous restaurants. Harbor Docks, Dewey Destin’s and Hogg’s Breath café are a few of the many outstanding eateries located near the Harbor Walk.

Want to go shopping? Destin Commons is a 10-minute drive east. Drive another 5 minutes and you’ll arrive at the Silver Sands Outlet Mall. If you haven’t heard yet Silver Sands is the largest designer outlet mall in the United States. It’s worth a look.

Want to spend some time inside the condo? We supply free Wi Fi, cable TV and complementary NETFLIX.

Your unit is a one-bedroom/ one-bath condo complete with all the amenities you can ask for. The beachfront complex overlooking the Destin East Pass and Jetties is amazing. The complex features under building parking, two lakes, 2 tennis courts, 2 pools - one heated year round, basketball, shuffleboard and a seasonal courtesy shuttle to effortlessly transport you around the complex. You can swim, walk the beaches, fish the jetties, snorkel or participate in the sports and games all without leaving the complex. Be careful not to spend all of your time on the Pointe; we’d hate for you to miss the rest of what our holiday paradise has to offer outside the gates. It’s up to you; you’re on vacation – just show up and relax.

We could talk forever about this unit but . . . if you spend too much time reading about it you’ll miss time enjoying it. Go ahead and book. You’ll love it. We don’t just rent you a condo; we sell memories. Hope to see you soon.

About Louise Traver

We are a career military family. Wes is a retired Air Force Chief Master Sergeant; I was born and raised in Wales, United Kingdom. After traveling the world for over 29 years we arrived on the Emerald Coast in 2005, fell in love with the area and decided to make it home. After settling in and realizing just how wonderful our new home is we decided to go into the vacation rental business and share this 'slice of paradise' with others. We’re local, hands-on owners who will pull out all the stops to enhance your vacation experience. We believe in and do everything possible to live up to our motto “we sell memories.”

Louise Traver purchased this condo in 2014

Why Louise Traver chose Florida North West

Why did we choose Magnolia House? That’s easy; the view. When we first looked at the condo we were mesmerized by the view. We have other properties on the Gulf of Mexico but the view over the East Pass is one-of-a-kind. Once hooked on the view we started to investigate the rest of the development. We discovered the lure of the jetties, the availability of the water taxi, the amenities and the all around great location of the Destin Pointe. Holiday Isle is perfectly situated and has everything necessary for a great vacation on the Gulf of Mexico. We found it and believe it’s one of the best spots in Destin. Now we’d like to share it with you. Come visit us and find out for yourself.

Everything as Described and More

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Destin in condo 506. The remodeling job was done with very tasteful cabinets, counters and floors as well as the decor and colors. The condo had plenty of room for the 2 of us, and the master bed is as comfortable as it gets. Like other reviewers expressed, the first thing that grabs you is the view. We couldn't get enough of it morning, noon and night. Especially at night. The view of the pool from the balcony is also a plus. Having the lanai upon entering is great for storing beach stuff, fishing poles and a bike or two if you brought them, but as mentioned, bikes are in the parking garage at the bike racks free for use. The restaurants, shops and grocery stores are all within a few minutes by car. A few times we chose to use Uber, and most places, the fee was about 6 bucks. The shuttle to the beach was also convenient and JD, the driver, was very polite, informative and was a great conversationalist. All said and done, it was everything as described and more, which made for an awesome vacation. We look forward to our return!

Beautiful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying along the Gulf for the past four years, and this was, by far, our favorite condo. The condo itself was decorated beautifully, but not overdone. It was very clean and fresh upon our arrival; it still had the look and feel of being recently remodeled. One of the first things we noticed was the view. Even from the kitchen, we were able to see the white sand dunes, the water and boats of the East Pass, and even the Gulf itself. The neighborhood that Magnolia House is located in was clean and quiet. The grounds of Magnolia House were well-kept, and there were even bicycles to borrow at no charge! The pool right outside the condo was clean and lots of fun. There was also an enclosed, locked "front porch" that we had to walk through to enter and exit the condo, which was perfect for storing all our beach gear and for letting towels and swimsuits dry without the fear of someone stealing our stuff. In general, the condo and the beaches were quiet and didn't feel touristy, and a short drive was all it took to reach the shops and restaurants of Destin. Louise was also wonderful to work with and very easy to contact. We loved staying here so much that we have already booked our next vacation here!

Wonderfully equipped condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were delighted with this condo. It was just the right size for two people and being on the 5th floor we had a wonderful view. I could not believe how well equipped the kitchen was. Also the small washer and dryer right in the unit was a great convenience. Louise had done a wonderful job on the décor --relaxing and colorful. Overlooking the beautiful pool was a real plus as well. The location was perfect for visiting the shops and loads of nearby restaurants to choose from. Our two favorite restaurants were the Back Porch and The Shrimp Basket. We had a wonderful relaxing time.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Destin (almost yearly) for the past 15 years and absolutely love it! We've always stayed at the Magnolia House and this year, rented unit #506 for the first time. My husband and I are in agreement that it's our favorite condo to date! The fifth floor view is unmatched and the condo itself is clean and beautifully remodeled! We love every aspect of the condo and will definitely rent it again. We also love the community at Destin Pointe - the 2 pools are amazing, the distance to the beach is great (a short walk to earn your nightly ice cream at Shake' or the option to take the trolly if you have lots of beach stuff to carry...all great!

Louise was fabulous to work with and always super helpful. She even provided a contact number in case we needed to reach her directly while we were there, which was comforting just in case we needed anything.

Such a great experience! Thank you, Louise! We look forward to renting from you again!
