Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This serene home is on Sunset Lake in Destiny West, an exclusive gated community with fabulous amenities, beautiful, mature palms and landscaping, and cobblestone streets. This neighborhood, with a gated entrance on Scenic 98 feels like it's a secluded tropical paradise, but you are within minutes of a wide selection of amazing dining options, shopping, and entertainment.

This home offers a comfortable floor plan, with the master bedroom and bath separated from the other bedrooms by a large cook's kitchen and eating area. This eating area, as well as the living room, master bedroom and guest room overlook the lake. Step out onto the enormous deck to take in the beauty of Destin's legendary sunsets!

All the beds have comfortable foam mattresses that sleep like a dream. Each bedroom has an LCD TV, Netflix, and ample closet and drawer space. The large light-filled master bedroom is your retreat, with its glorious view of the lake through palm trees that afford privacy! The master also has a CD/DVD/Stereo System, two comfortable lounge chairs and a private master bath with jetted garden tub and walk-in shower. Enjoy the large deck that spans the entire back of the house and a dock directly on the dine or just relax as you listen to the fountain in the middle of the lake and the palms swaying in the breeze.

Also enjoy easy access to walking trails overlooking the Gulf, and James Lee Park with its covered picnic areas that have grills, easy dune walkovers, restrooms, and showers. Bring a picnic lunch or leave your towels and beach chairs on the sand while you enjoy casual beachside dining or the open air beach bar at The Crab Trap, where appetizers and cool drinks make watching the sunset over the Gulf a memorable experience.

This beautiful home in an elegant, quiet neighborhood is perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the white sand and emerald water, but be within minutes of the area's most popular attractions. Come enjoy the most beautiful location on the gulf coast, and make it a tradition to return every year for a vacation that is truly Worth the Wait!

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.

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 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have so many great memories from this house now! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home! The beach was beautiful, the sand was white, and the water was clear. This home was really "Worth the Wait" and we are so disappointed that we could only spend one week here!

Reviewer Comments:

Our goal was relaxation and ease and that is exactly what we got. The house looks great in photos but even better in person. The backyard/deck area was our favorite part of the house with great sunset views every night. There was also a screened-in porch option which was great when bugs started to become a bit much (which only happened once and we had food so...duh). It was centrally locates and very quiet.

Reviewer Comments:

Each year, some close friends and I take a "girls trip" to the beach. This year instead of a condo, we chose to rent a house. A friend recommended "Worth The Wait" and she was exactly right. The house was spacious and VERY comfortable. The beds have great mattresses and there are no "kiddie beds" that an adult has to sleep on. The only negative was the TV. The cable is very limited- no ESPN or SEC network. We were there in September and for girls from Alabama- we need our sports! A second negative was the landscapers came to trim trees before 7:00 am. Chain saws and clanging ladders was not very pleasant thus negating our breakfast on the back deck. Other than that, our stay was perfect. We definitely want to rent this house again.

Acceptable. All good except for ants in master bath. Called management and they sent someone out to spray, but couldn't stand to be in master suite for hours afterward due to fumes.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, when it rains the ants try to get in from the weather. Such was the case here. We would love the chance to make your next stay a five star experience, and hope that you will give us a call in the future :) - Destin Palms Vacations
