Welcome to Paradise! At 506 Magnolia House we offer the best of all beach vacation worlds.
DO YOU WANT A WONDERFUL VIEW?
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.

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 Destin
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.

Wonderful condo- as described!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this condo. The view was beautiful! The unit was tastefully decorated and had a well-stocked kitchen. We had breakfast on the balcony daily. It was so quiet and peaceful that we hated to leave. We will definitely return in the future!
Perfect place to recharge
I decided to give 3 nights stay to my daughter and her friend to recharge from work and every day life. It turned out to be a very refreshing and regenerating break. Unfortunately the weather wasn't that warm and it was extremely windy. The condo and Destin was still a wonderful place for them to be able vacation. In the kitchen they had everything they needed. The furniture and bed was very comfortable. The view was picture worthy. They wanted to do paddle board yoga, but it was too windy. Instead they had yoga sessions on the beach that was a short walk away. Having the hot tub near the unit was convenient and rejuvenating. Overall this condo and owner are a 5 star 🌟 rating.
wonderful as expected
The unit was clean, larger than expected and very comfortable.
While we were told this in all of the mailings, it didn't sink in that the beach we saw out the window is not the private beach for the property. We didn't figure it out until the next day which was perfectly fine and lovely. The heated pool was great especially since the weather was not cooperating. Love having a w/d in the unit!
Thank you for having us.
Great stay. Great place.
Clean and roomy place. Close to stores, restaurants and activities. Everything as read in room description. Highly satisfied. Not wanting to depart but will definitely recommend.
Very relaxing with gorgeous view!
We have been coming to Destin since the 1970’s and, honestly, one cannot find a more beautiful beach. We have been to the Caribbean and Hawaii and always come back to Destin. The Destin Pointe community isolates it’s guests from the hustle and bustle of other visitors to Destin yet it is so convenient to restaurants, shopping, entertainment and charter fishing. Unit 506 was very comfortable with a wonderful view of fishing boats coming in and out of the East Pass channel and since our unit faced west, we had glorious sunsets to watch. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils for cooking. The view of that ocean straight from the kitchen was magnificent. We will come back again.
Most incredible view
This place is amazing. Very clean and comfortable. Best view in destin. Short walk or tram ride to beach. Water taxi to the best restaurants and bars across the harbor. We loved it so much that we extended our stay by 4 days. Louise was a dream to rent her beautiful condo to us. We have rented many condos in destin and we will return to magnolia house again! Thanks so much!
