About the Property

Beach and boat lovers paradise! Close to beach and first canal off the harbor!

Enjoy the tranquil and private, upscale community of Holiday Isle in beautiful Destin, Florida. House has recently just completed an 8-month TOTAL renovation, over $250K spent inside and out. Professionally decorated for a beach and boating retreat. Rear docks can accommodate up to a 40' boat with shorepower and water. Access to uncrowded, Holiday Isle resident ONLY beaches is within a 5-minute walk.

This house is located in the first canal off the well-known Destin Harbor and is situated on a quiet street that does not see a lot of rental activity. Avoid the traffic and take your boat to eat, the beach, site seeing, to get sea shells on a remote beach that is accessible only by water, dolphin spotting or fishing.

This private home maintains four (4) bedrooms, three (3) full baths, an upstairs gourmet kitchen, a downstairs kitchen with full bar, and over 1,200SF of newly renovated decks and verandas. Additionally, we have reconstructed all of our docks for a pristine place to dock your boat, drop a fishing line into the water, or just relax and catch some sun.

The master suite features an ornate king bed, wall-mounted flat screen TV with DirecTV, BluRay DVD player and a cozy reading chair. The professionally-designed master bath features a double vanity, caesarstone countertops, spacious walk-in closet, and a separate bath area featuring a HUGE custom built glass and terrazzo shower, with two shower heads and a rainfall head from the ceiling.

The first upstairs spare bedroom features a beach theme with a classic queen designed bed set. This room also maintains a wall-mounted flatscreen TV with DirecTV, and a BluRay DVD player. This bedroom shares a large bathroom with the other upstairs spare bedroom. This bath has a large custom shower and jacuzzi with a single granite vanity.

The second upstairs spare bedrooms includes a look through the palm trees out to the water and docks. It has a large bunk bed set, that has a twin mattress on top, a full mattress down below and a pull-out twin trundle bed. This room is perfect for kids and is decorated in an old nautical theme. It features a wall-mount flatscreen TV with DirecTV and a BluRay DVD player.

The upstairs living room has been designed with a calming beach theme and has direct access to the front veranda where you can sit and relax. The living room features a 60" high definition wall-mounted flatscreen with DirecTV, large bluetooth soundbar, a large sectional couch, a love seat, and a cozy arm chair. The ceiling fans are designed from sailboat sails and are a perfect for sitting on the couch and relaxing.

The gourmet kitchen features a HUGE bar counter with seating for 5, granite countertops throughout, new stainless steel appliances, including a custom built-in 24 bottle wine cooler, and a view of the water and docks from the window above the sink or several of the doors that lead out onto the large upstairs deck.

The dining area features a custom-built table with seating for six (6). The table can be extended to seat 8-10 comfortably. The double doors behind the table lead out to the upstairs deck for drinks or relaxing, before or after meals.

The downstairs living room features a high-definition 60" flatscreen TV with DirecTV, BluRay DVD player and a large bluetooth soundbar. This all sits above the custom cabinetry and granite counters that highlight this room. The furniture in the room includes a large couch, with hideaway bed, and a love seat. The room is decorated in an old nautical and fishing theme with multiple large antiques. The double doors in the room lead out to the lower decks and docks, it's the perfect place to relax if you enjoy the calm of the water or just looking at your boat sitting at the dock.

Adjacent to the downstairs living room is the downstairs kitchen and full bar. The bar has a LARGE granite countertop that seats five (5). This is the perfect place to entertain or relax with friends and family after a long day at the beach or to prepare food to grill on the new stainless grill that is just outside the door. The bar features a full sink, prep sink, refrigerator, dishwasher and cook top.

Down a small hallway from the lower living room/kitchen/bar, is the downstairs spare bedroom. It is decorated in an old nautical them and has a queen bed set, a wall-mounted flatscreen TV with DirecTV and BluRay DVD player. Immediately next to this bedroom is the bathroom that features a single granite countertop vanity, and a HUGE custom shower made of stainless steel, glass and terrazzo.

The design of the outside of this private home is simple. It is light beach green with vertical white stripes and white accents. The design was intended to capture the upscale beach setting while maintaining a simple and relaxing presence. All concrete drives and walks on the property are stamped and integrally stained concrete, so we ask that our guests keep that in mind when parking vehicles or doing activities on them.

We try to take care of our guests as much as possible so that their stay is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. As part of their stay, our guests also enjoy the benefits of our customer service team should any issues arise at sea, at beach...or in the kitchen.

Owner keeps a private, professionally crewed sportfishing yacht on the premises, so advice on local boating access, inshore and offshore fishing tips and locations are always available to our guests. The crew does not stay on the premises, but periodically they will stop by to check on the vessel. We do ask that guests and their children do not board the vessel on the premises due to safety and liability issues. If the crew is on site, you are more than welcome to ask for a tour of the yacht or to ask any questions about it. We do ask all guests to take extreme care when docking or maneuvering their boats around the yacht so we don't have any issues. If guests prefer that the vessel is not present during their stay for more dock space or view of the water, we can arrange for it to be taken off the premises - just ask us and we will accommodate.

It is required that a person that is 25 years of age and older executes the rental agreement AND is also present for the duration of the rental period. Please note that we do not rent to fraternity or sorority groups.
