Overview

About the property

1 BR, 1 Bath. Sleeps 5. WIFI. HD cable & SEC channel

*** 7th NIGHT IS ALWAYS FREE WITH A 6-NIGHT RESERVATION (Automatically calculated into your quote when you select a 7-night stay.) ***

Recently remodeled, Unit #419 is already a top renting unit at Holiday Surf, and it sits right on the beach. Enjoy your morning coffee on your private balcony while you take in stunning views of the beautiful white sand beach and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. At sunset, listen to the hypnotic sound of the waves as you sip a glass of wine on the steps of the boardwalk.

Features of this cute little condo include a new kitchen with white shaker-style cabinets and granite countertops, breakfast bar, all new appliances and adjoining dining area with dry bar. You'll love the beachy wood-look tile in the main living areas and the new La-Z-Boy queen-size sleeper sofa with two matching recliners in the living room. You'll get a great night's sleep on the king-size bed in the master. For the little person in your family, you'll find a new twin-size cot with bedding in the closet. The bathroom has plenty of extra storage, granite countertop and new vanity.

Never miss that big game with HD Cable and the SEC Channel in the living room! Complimentary WiFi is also included. There is a 42-inch HD flat screen in the living room and a 32-inch HD flat screen TV (with regular cable) in the bedroom. Both TVs come with a DVD player and a nice selection of vintage DVDs.

Walk out the back door of the building to the private beach - no parking lots or streets to cross.

REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR BEACH TOWELS!!!

Laundry facilities are conveniently located just a few steps down the hall, right on the same floor. Enjoy the heated pool, lighted tennis courts, exercise facilities and sauna on-site. Nearby activities include windsurfing, para sailing, snorkeling and deep sea fishing.

Holiday Surf & Racquet Club is located on Holiday Isle, a quiet peninsula situated between the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Highway 98, yet still conveniently located near area family attractions and great dining experiences in and around the Destin Harbor area.

Here are a few nearby restaurants that we’ve tried and really like - in no particular order:

1. Dewey Destin's Harborside Restaurant

2. Boshamps Seafood and Oyster House

3. Marina Cafe (Destin’s “most awarded” restaurant)

4. Harbor Docks - a local favorite.

5. AJ’s - They also have a great party boat - you'll be singing YMCA like the Village People on your way back to the harbor. Seriously.

6. Margaritaville - They have gluten-free burger buns for those with issues who still enjoy a burger now and then.

7. McGuires Irish Pub - Great food, open late, and have their own micro brewery. Hubby says it might possibly be the best beer he's ever had. People rave about their steaks and prime rib.

8. The Donut Hole (we LOVE this place for breakfast). Outstanding donuts and desserts; check out the dieter's special (which we refer to as a heart attack on a plate - but OMG! It is delicious!!). The lines get long here for breakfast; takeout will be quicker.

9. Bric a Brac - Word from one of our guests is that the new Bric a Brac restaurant right there on Holiday Isle is a must see. According to the website there is great food and jazz on the weekends. Can't wait to try this one out!

10. The Back Porch - This is a local favorite, and right on the beach. Gluten-free options available. Best drinks in Destin. Hands down!

11. Pompano Joe's - The Travel Channel has featured Pompano Joe's as the ultimate beach shack and one of the world's best beach restaurants. Gluten-Free options available. Also right on the beach. Beach volleyball, anyone?

There are many, many other restaurants and steak houses - pretty much any food and price range you could imagine.

The condo is located close to Target, Winn Dixie grocery store, liquor store, the nail salon...

Things to do at the Harbor. So much fun!

Big Kahuna's Water Park!

Great shopping at the Silver Sands Outlet Mall!

Why Pam & Dave chose Holiday Isle

We had been looking to purchase a unit at Holiday Surf for nearly two years. It took some time to find just the right one, but we were patient and we purchased our first unit, #415. We were able to renovate it and make it just what we wanted. When Unit #419 came available, we decided to repeat that positive experience with this little one-bedroom unit with the spectacular view. We love how close Holiday Surf is to Destin Harbor. Whether we want an evening of fine dining, or something more casual, there are many, many wonderful restaurants nearby on Destin Harbor. Of course, we also love to visit the Silver Sands Outlet Mall and the stores and restaurants in the Santa Rosa Beach area. It will take many trips to Destin to do it all!

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the quiet, low traffic area on Holiday Isle and appreciate the emphasis on guest comfort that we have found at Holiday Surf & Racquet Club. There is nothing like an early morning walk on the beach -- so quiet and peaceful. We love listening to families outside playing tennis or splashing in the pool or on the beach during the day. Their laughter is contagious! You'll leave for home relaxed and refreshed -- already thinking about next year's vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for a great place to call home for the week. Everything we needed was right here on the couple of rainy days we had - very thankful for that. Loved having such a great view and close access to the beach on the sunny days, too!



This was our first family vacation and we had so much fun! Hoping to be back again someday!

Very nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Destin. The condo was great and looks just like the pictures (sometimes that doesn't happen). Very clean and well stocked. Loved sitting on the balcony with the view of the gulf. Nice easy walk to the beach. Will definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Sandy. Not only do we appreciate the great review, we appreciate great guests like you. We have had the condo "refreshed" - new paint and a few other little things - so it should look even nicer when you return. We definitely look forward to having you again! Pam & Dave

Relaxing stay at the beach

  • 4 of 5

I had a nice relaxing stay in Destin at this condo unit. It is very nicely furnished, modern stylish decor and very clean. The view out the veranda is great and you are so close to the beach that you can hear the waves. The furniture is fairly new and well cared for and all conveniences are supplied. My only criticism is that the bed is a bit soft for my taste. I would definately consider staying here again. Destin also had many great choices to eat and the sand is like white powder.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your vacation in Destin. The next time you visit, you'll be able to enjoy the brand new balcony tile that was just installed. It is beautiful!

Winter break

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfectly wonderful winter break in “419”. The apartment was clean, well supplied, comfortable and the balcony gave us the opportunity to enjoy the sunsets. The complex is very convenient to all things Destin, with plenty of places to walk, shop, eat and sightsee.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Karen! We're so tickled you enjoyed your beach vacation. We were finally able to get a break in the action so that we could have the new balcony tile installed and it is lovely! Thank you for your understanding. We really appreciate guests like you.

Awesome Girl's Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

My friend of 40 years and I had an amazing week at the beach. We were originally booked at Maderia Beach but Hurricane Irma pushed us further NW.

This was a last minute rental and we could not be happier. Pam was very pleasurable to communicate with and very quick with resonding to any questions/concerns.

The condo was amazing, beautifully decorated, immaculate, and the bed and furniture was very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals, the A/C keep the unit cooled, and the view from the balcony was absolutely perfect.

The front desk staff was polite and helpful with any questions we might have had. The building and grounds were well maintained as was the walkway to the beach.

Our only concern was there was not an empty kitchen cabinet to put our groceries in, all the drawers in the bedroom dresser had linens in them, and the bedroom closet had too much stuff in it to hang our clothes.

This was easily rearranged to accommodate our things, however housekeeping or the owner might remove extra linens/kitchenware from time to time. Also several drawers in the bar and buffet table were filled with brochures, these should be removed after each quest as they available at the entrance of the lobby.

My complaints are petty, but I pay great attention to detail and I am fair and honest in my reviews.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in #419 and would highly recommend this condo. Thank you Pam! Lori &Trish from Oklahoma 2017 Girl's Beach Trip

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Lori and Trish! We are so glad you guys had a great time, and could not be happier that Hurricane Irma missed us and didn't interfere with your vacation. Whew! Thank you so much for the suggestions. Our guests provide us with the best feedback and it really helps us out. We will definitely do our best to make more room for groceries and other items. Great idea! Pam
