Destin Area Information

But, there is much more to Destin than charter fishing. Destin has evolved over the years to be a top beach vacation destination. Featuring sugar-white sand beaches and emerald-colored water, it is an absolutely beautiful area. The town itself offers many upscale shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities. Much of the development of the area has been done with luxury lifestyles in mind. Destin also has one of the busiest private airports in the country. There are an abundance of things to do in Destin to include water parks, water sports rentals, parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, power boating, sailing, fishing, tennis, shopping, or just plain relaxing on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

A nice penthouse with plenty of space for a family of 6. Every bedroom has a balcony, although only the master has the ocean view. Things to know before you stay: beachfront directly in front of property does not allow umbrellas and chairs as it is serviced by a rental company. Condo could use a few upgrades and fine tuning to make it 5 star, for example dishes are a hodgepodge, washer and dryer are quite old, we purchased and left multiple hangers for renters to use as there were only 10, toilets looked old(although they were clean), some of the furniture was broken and the stereo system didn't work and there weren't any instructions on how to use it, wifi was EXTREMELY SLOW. It was very nice to have the extra ice maker, and all appliances were updated. Also, comes with a 2 car garage, which was nice to store all our beach stuff in instead of our room. This condo is in the PERFECT location to many things Destin has to offer.
