About Laura and Gregg Kirby, Owners since 2004

We purchased our villa in 2004 so we would always have a vacation home for our family. We manage the villa ourselves and take pride on over 50% repeat guests that stay year after year! We keep our villa as we would like to have a rental: clean, comfortable and completely furnished with everything you will need for a perfect beach vacation!

Why Laura and Gregg Kirby, Owners since 2004 chose Destin

It is CLOSE to everything in Destin! The villa is 10 minutes to the Harbor, 10 minutes to Sandestin. We love the meandering 6 mile path on Scenic for walking and biking. AND, the beach is literally 50 steps! GREAT VIEWS too!!

What makes this villa unique

Call us and we will call you back! Have a question? No problem! We help with suggestions on what to do with our e-brochure. Also check out YOUR DESTIN CONCIERGE on Trip Advisor for reviews! FB: Destiny Beach Villas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best Vacation!! ***** 5 Stars!

We loved every minute of our stay! The whole villa is very clean, and there was plenty of space for 4 adults and 3 young children (we rented it all!). The views are fantastic, and proximity to the beach is just as described. The pool is great too!! Everything was very well thought out by the owners. I especially loved all the hooks placed throughout the villa to hang towels and swimsuits on so they didn't end up on the floor. The lake is serene, and we enjoyed sitting on the back balcony at night listening to the frogs, and watching the turtles in the mornings. The surrounding area is relatively quiet, with less traffic than Hwy 98. But, it was nice to be so close to all the shopping and grocery stores too. Laura was very responsive from day one, and we even got to meet her! We will be back, no doubt!

  • 5 of 5

Love The Destin area. We booked this trip knowing it’d be the last one together with the kids (oldest with be off to school in Ann Arbor next year). Found this place and knew of its location, was thrilled we could book it. Amazing views from the balcony. The waves, the sun, people watching, etc... you won’t be disappointed with this unit or the owners. Were very friendly and courteous. Highly recommend!!!

Great location right off the beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views of the clean water lake from master bedroom. Kids loved getting to fish and being convenient to the beach. Short walk across the road to the beach, but wasn't a problem at all. GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES.
