Found heaven on earth! We've stayed twice and are looking forward to our next trip!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this gorgeous home. It's gorgeous and the gated neighborhood sits right on the beach. Pristine cobblestone streets and mansions galore. The house is very well cared for with all the amenities of home. Soaring ceilings, fabulous paintings, rugs, chandeliers and furniture. We were lucky enough to get to meet the owner, Dr Michael Archer this trip. Such a nice man and available for you should you need him. Can't wait for our next stay!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to stay for Spring Break. We had a couple families with kids and the location and layout of the house was perfect. Michael was great to work with and couldn't have asked for a better vacation and house.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for anyone. It is a home that I would recommend to anyone beyond a shadow of a doubt. The home is the perfect rental home, and the ammenities that come with it are nothing short of fantastic. Upon arrival, the home is cleaned spick and span with all the necessities to get any vacation started! The location is also a 20 second walk to the beach and only a mile from Destin commons. This is a huge plus in Destin, espcially when the traffic is bad. In addition, the house has a functioning elevator which makes this three story home wheel chair excessible. The owner is easy to work with in every way possible, and he does everything possible to make your stay as comforting and stress free as possible. It is truly a 5 star, must stay at house when in Destin!

Fall break with my family and the inlaws

  • 5 of 5

After hurricane Matthew spoiled our family vacation to Hilton Head we panicked wondering where would we go? We went to Destin last fall, so we decided to search that area again. But finding a suitable place for 4 adults, 2 kids, and our mini Aussie puppy narrowed the search results. We chose three properties and made a pro/con list. We ended up going with "Destiny Palms" because of its proximity to the beach. And boy were we thrilled me made that choice!

The house is three levels, so we had plenty of room. The elevator was very handy to send our luggage up to the third floor. My mother in law also had a day where her back went out and it helped her get from her room on the 1st floor to the living area on the 2nd. The house had everything we wanted and more. We loved the fact it had two king size beds! The grill was great to cook dinner. The boys loved the bikes provided in the garage and we loved the fact the neighborhood was gated so we didn't have to worry about them going around without us.

The owner was fabulous to work with as well. We had minor issues with the dishwasher and A/C that he handled immediately!

The walk to the beach was MUCH easier than we expected. Last year we stayed in one of those high rise condos and it was quite a ways to get to the beach after taking the elevator down, walking through the parking garage, walking past the pool, and finally walking the last part on the bridge to the beach. This house wasn't waterfront, but it was very close to it. The kids went out & hunted sand crabs a few nights as well and we didn't have to worry about them.

We hope to return the next time we travel to Destin for sure! Thanks for everything.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our entire family, two sons and spouses and 4 grandchildren, to be together for a fun and relaxing week. There was plenty of space for everyone to have some privacy, and the kitchen/living room was just right for all of us to gather for meals, family stories and laughter. The beach and pool are wonderful, and almost right outside the door. The house is spacious, comfortable and beautiful. It was a wonderful experience.
