There is plenty of parking, so leave your car behind and explore Destin in a golf cart, which comes with this home! This is just one of the many perks that come with this vacation home.

Destiny East is an exclusive gated community that offers several amenities including two neighborhood pools, hot tub, fitness center, clubhouse with I-Max theater, tennis, basketball courts, BBQ area with outdoor kitchen, walking trails, & playground for the kids! The neighborhood is golf cart friendly, so drive yours to the beach or out to dinner. Located on pedestrian friendly Scenic 98, you can walk down to the beach to catch a sunset or take a relaxing bike ride.

As our guest, you will receive a free VIP Perks Card that provides free passes to the area's most popular attractions. Each day of your stay, you will receive one free adult pass to a charter fishing excursion, a dolphin cruise aboard the SeaBlaster speed boat, and 18 holes of golfing at three different Sandestin courses. We also offer bike and golf cart rentals, so you can explore easily!

The free passes are per reservation and not per guest. They are non-cumulative. Guests can use passes at different activities on the same day. For instance, a guest could play 18 holes of golf for free in the morning and then go on a free dolphin cruise on the same afternoon. The card also entitles you to do an activity more than once for free. For example, if you wanted to golf daily, each day of your stay (excluding the day of departure), one person in your party could golf for free.

Free golf and charter fishing excursions are available year-round. The dolphin cruise operates March-October. Perks are not available to monthly renters.

Reviewer Comments:

Southern Style is a gorgeous house. The neighborhood of Destiny East is very nice and convenient. The golf cart was definitely a plus and a key factor with us deciding on Southern Style. However the place could use some TLC. We were going to host a cook out but the grill did not ignite and there was not a lighter to be found in the place. There were 10 light bulbs out in the house upon our arrival but maintenance responded promptly and they were replaced. The stove top for cooking was in poor condition. It would be a plus for instructions to be in the manual on how to operate the cable and television so not to get the remotes confused.

Pros: beautiful house and location golf cart was great Pool is beautiful (but tiny) Loved all of the outdoor sitting areas! Cons: lots of stairs (it's 3 story) kitchen is on the second floor, so being able to climb steps is a must. The air would NOT go below 70-72!!! It was HOT! Master bath jets wouldn't work

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Hopefully you gave out maintenance team a chance to assist you with the whirlpool bath and make adjustments to your AC vents. Upper floors of large homes in the summer tend to be a challenge to keep it as cool as possible. Hope to see you again in the future. Destin Palms Management

Reviewer Comments:

The home was extremely nice and was perfect for our size group. It was well maintained and clean. The location was ok, and beach access was a little awkward. I was expecting a little bit closer access and not have to fight everyone for parking way down the street. It would have been nice just to get up and take a walk to the beach but it was really too far for that. We had to take trips back and forth with the golf cart, which was sometimes kind of inconvenient. For the price of the home and the wristbands provided, we thought that we had private beach access but were quickly kicked out of the area when trying to set up. I think the weird and inconvenient access to the beach sort of kept everyone at the house more, which was sort of disappointing (maybe just my opinion) I received a ticket for $50 for parking in the street and another $35 charge for a God for saking wristband missing. $85 extra dollars for silly reasons in my opinion. The residents of the neighborhood did not seem welcoming at all to tourists, and they definitely put themselves on another level. Everyone did love the home for sure though and we had a great time and vacation. Next time, we will most definitely book a home right on the beach and not in such a "snooty" neighborhood. We just want to come down to have fun, not live there, some people need to realize that. If they are so miserable with it, then they should consider moving. The next door neighbor was also hooked up to our electricity the entire time with an extension cord and running it over to their home. Not sure what the deal was with that. Overall beautiful enormous home, but would not book there again. Give it a 7 of 10.

Reviewer Comments:

My family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home! The property was great & we had everything we needed to accommodate our entire family. It was close to the beach & came with a complimentary golf cart to ride around in. This home was just as lovely in person as it was in the pictures. My family and I stayed here Christmas weekend 2016, & we created life long memories that we will cherish forever! The staff were professional & did a great job of staying in contact with us even though it was a holiday weekend. We would definitely choose this property again!
