About the property

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

*** December Special - 4th Night Free ***

*** 7th NIGHT IS ALWAYS FREE WITH A 6-NIGHT RESERVATION (1 free night per 7-night reservation.) ***

Newly remodeled in 2015, 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 new king-size Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress 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.

NEED TWO CONDOS FOR YOUR VACATION?? Check out Unit #415 (2 BR, 2 Bath - listing #571372), just 4 doors down from #419. Perfect for extended family vacations.

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!

LINEN/HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE: Our unit will be cleaned to quality standards prior to your arrival and after your departure. Laundry facilities are located on the fourth and sixth floors of the resort. The condo will be stocked with a starter supply of trash liners, toilet paper, bath soap and dishwasher soap.

Why Pam & Dave chose Florida North West

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!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo has been refurbished and looks AMAZING! It is right on the shore over looking the gulf, so you can listen to the waves crash all day long. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets for this unit.

The unit has everything you'd need for a stay on the beach.

The owners were very easy to deal with and were helpful when needed. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone staying at Holiday Surf & Racquet Club.

The condo was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Destin celebrating 30 years of marriage. We had an amazing week and could not have chosen better accommodations. This condo was amazing and very comfortable. The views of the Gulf from the minute you walk in the door as well as from the Kitchen and living area are beautiful! Pam was amazing to work with . We would highly recommend this condo! We look forward to hopefully returning to Destin in the future and would definitely rent from Pam again without hesitation! Thank you Pam for sharing your wonderful condo with us!

Great location and value

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully remodeled unit. Great place with quick access to beach. Good value. Was and clean and smelled fresh upon arrival.

Just remember No beach service included but it can be purchased easily. They have a cart, umbrella, and chairs in the unit free to use. They do the job but are getting a little worn down. Beware the umbrella on a windy day. I had to chase it down one day as it doesn't latch together well. Overall, they did their job and I was thankful they were provided.

Would stay here again.

It makes us so happy to know that you guys enjoyed yourselves, and we hope to see you the next time you are in Destin.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast during out first trip to Destin. The condo was immaculately clean and adorable. Not small, not big, perfect for a couple. You just cannot beat waking up every morning to that gorgeous ocean view! I was also very impressed with the whole place, always clean. We went to the pool everyday and never saw anything in it but clean water. What I loved most was the beautiful beach and that it never felt crowded or congested. I will definitely look forward to coming back very soon and would love to stay in this same condo!
