PARKING is for 6+ cars. RV, BUS or BOAT is OK -
Private Pool; the pool has optional heating and, therefore, available for use all year round!. The pool has a wall around it with foliage and prevents passing pedestrians or cars from seeing you all.
Recreational activities; you will be pleased to know there are golf courses, waterparks, go-karting, various restaurants, fire work displays, dolphin cruises, science museum (great fun for the whole family) some fabulous outlet malls (Silver Sands), etc. within an approx. 3 mile drive and I would be only too happy to provide further information on these activities if you so wish (some activities are limited over the low season months).
at your convenience, there is a supermarket (Publix) less than a mile from Peace Place, for you to stock up on your supplies, as and when the need arises (there are both gas and coal bbq grills for your enjoyment near to the private pool).
All our guests enjoy free WiFi and cable television.
Apartment & Main House;
Peace Place has the uniqueness of the apartment being attached to the main house, so it can be used either separately by closing it off (it is self-contained) or alternatively by opening it up into the main house, it becomes one home. The choice is purely yours and your groups. You can alternate its use to meet your individual needs, e.g. if someone in the group (e.g. grandparents) might be looking for a little quieter time during the day or evening, this is easily accommodated by yourselves. As the apartment is self-contained, some families/groups love the fact that there are two kitchens, two washing machines and two dryers for use – a great perk when trying to cook and clothes wash with big groups.
For up to 20 guests.
THE MAIN HOUSE sleeps 14. Double French doors invite you into this charming home which is highlighted by ten foot ceilings, crown molding, treyed ceilings and a fireplace.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Destin, Florida
Dora, AL USA
Peace Place Lives up to its name
October 14, 2014
Peace Place was really great. It was clean, quiet, felt like a home and not a plain old house. The only thing that I would change would be the heating of the pool. I had small children and it needed to be heated for this time of year but it was very costly for the amount of time that we stayed so we could not have it heated. A discount would have made it easier to afford for an extended stay. But other than that it was a great place and I would very much like to go back next year.
Thank you so much for your kind and most valued review. I'm so sorry about the heating, I wish you had called me so that we could maybe have discussed the price and come up with something that worked for you. As you know, David and I try so hard to make all our guests very comfortable and I am sad to read you could not use the pool due to heating costs. We charge $35 p/d, however, we discount depending on how many days you require. My apologies this was not made clear at the time.
Great Owners with a Wonderful House
August 19, 2014
Being from PA, i had no previous knowledge about Destin, FL. Owners David and Kathrine were really great to work with from day one. The house is really great for large groups of all ages. The house is in a perfect location and has everything you may need to feel at home. David set us up with a great day on " Crab island" by renting one of his boats. Ive rented from prior good home-owners in the past, but by far David and Kathrine really made you feel at home. Lots of little touches went a long way. Only downside to the weekend was the rental company never told us not to "dead-bolt" the doors and the house key provided didn't work. All around i would deff refer other renters to David and Kathrine. Enjoy the upcoming vacations

This place was so much more than we expected. Great pool, size, kitchen, patio, landscaping, outside lighting and showers. The beach is only 2 blocks away and a beautiful walk. Plenty of pool toys for the kids so no need to bring any beach chairs as well. We had a couple mishaps and the maintenance people were on it. I would stay again and I hated to leave. The staff at harmony beach are awesome as well.

Tortuga was everything we were expecting it to be. The place was clean and comfortable for our group of seventeen had plenty of space for family games in the evening. The AC was more than adequate and the kitchen was up to date and all the appliances were top notch. The beach was an easy walk and the community pool was small but perfect for an "after beach" dip. The outside grill was convenient and large enough to cook food for a large group. We would be pleased to use it again when the opportunity comes up.

Family reunion success
July 9, 2014
I met with my extended family (16 of us) in Destin, FL. Lucky for us we stayed at a beautiful home called "Peace Place". We took daily walks down to the beach, just 2 blocks away. At night we enjoyed a relaxing soak in the private pool. There's tons of things you can do in Destin with your family. All within about 5 miles of town. Fishing, boating, swimming, parasail, go-carts, and the list goes on. Of course the main draw is the white sand and warm water of the Gulf. Our house even had chairs and an umbrella to take to the beach. There's plenty of restaurants to try in this town, famous for it's fishing as well. Having a huge Pro Bass store on the main drag of town was nice. My wife enjoyed all the other stores in the outdoor mall while I looked at fishing tackle. The traffic is a bit busy, but that's to be expected in the middle of summer in Florida. All in all, a great vacation.

Just checked out this morning. We stayed a Peace Place for a small reunion of Navy Air Traffic Controllers assigned to the USS America in 1986. Most of us haven't seen each other since 1989. This home and the owners were amazing to us. It offered plenty of room for late night dinners, time lounging around the pool, beach access and tons of new memories. A special thank you to the staff at Harmony and a heart felt thanks to the owners for a.beautiful home. Don't walk there, RUN and make it your place to stay in Destin.
January 19, 2014
We are a large family with 7 mostly grown children and PP was plenty of space for us to spread out. Having the pool heated really made a difference because it was unseasonably cold some of the days that we were here. The beds were very comfortable and the whole house was clean. The kitchen was stocked with everything that we need to have home cooked meals which is the highlight for the kids. The apartment is attached in a way that if some wanted to sleep late and stay up late, they didn't disturb the rest or were disturbed by the rest. Thanks so much for making it easy to rent and making it such an enjoyable family vacation.
We appreciate the time you have taken to post this review and thrilled that you all enjoyed our home so much...It's wonderful when Peace Place fulfils the needs of everyone staying in our home. We both try hard to ensure, before our guests book, that our home is indeed right for them so that their experience is a positive one for their memories. Thank you so much for being such wonderful guests! We hope you will come back again!
December 11, 2013
The house was exactly as the owners told us it would be. It met our needs and if we had chosen a better time to go, we could have made use of the beautiful pool. I would recommend staying at this house especially for large families. The owners try to meet your every need and are a pleasure to deal with. When I explained that our youngest son would be coming home from Aftganistan for the 9th time they were just wonderful about everything.This home is conveniently located it is within walking distance of the ocean and a five minute drive to shopping and great restaurants. I would recommend people choose Destin as their vacation place to go, the views are breath taking and the sunsets are amazing. Had a wonderful time in spite of the weather and would love to go back again.
AMAZING VACATION HOME
September 2, 2013
This home met our expectations and more! The house was clean with everything we needed. This house was a block from the beach. We did not go far because we had everything we needed on site for a great vacation. The kids loved the pool! Tons of room for bigger families, there is a separate apartment that my son enjoyed! The house is inviting and well taken care of. In a safe area, we went for walks every night to the beach! Close to grocery and shopping stores. We will definitely go back to peace place again!

great house for our crew!
May 28, 2013
We loved the house and the location. Big and roomy! Pool was incredible (house even has pool toys available). The house is a couple of blocks away from the beach which is an easy walk (unless you have 10 chairs, a big ten and 10 children under 9). One of my boys was smart enough to bring his Ranger (kind of a big golf cart) so we could load it with all of our gear for the beach. We love the house and plan to stay there again on our next trip! Rental company was very responsive to a couple of suggestions we had. Grocery store just minutes away which is very important when you have a big goup. Loved the trip and house!

Great vacation rental!!

Our family absolutely loves this house! We plan a family reunion each year in Destin in October and found this wonderful house about 3 years ago and everyone just loves it. It is very close to the beach and has a great pool for the kids to enjoy. There is courtyard area with a fountain for the adults to relax in while the kids swim and plenty of room for all to congregate inside as well. We enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen and just hanging out and playing games in the dining room. We will definitely be back again next year!

Great Vacation Home
October 13, 2012
I stayed at Peace Place from Sept 27-Oct 1 with 8 of my friends and could not have asked for a better time. The house was awesome. It had everything we needed. Very spacious, modern, and comfortable. The only thing we had a problem with was the AC, but that was fixed promptly. I would definitely recommend this place for families, groups of friends, or any type of celebration. We all loved it. I really hope I get a chance to vacation again here soon. Thanks David. You made this a great vacation for me and my friends.
May Wedding Weekend
September 5, 2012
I can't say enough about this property, the owners, or the management company! They worked with us on our dates of stay (due to our planning around our son's wedding), made check-in and out very easy, and the house is perfect. We had several staying and the back apartment allowed for a couple of us who had to work part of the stay some quiet time and extra space. We loved the back yard and pool. It was so pleasant in the morning with our coffee and the late evenings to sit back with a glass of wine and reflect on our days events. The kitchen was more than adequate, as we prepared food for our son's rehearsal dinner and meals at least once a day for about 15 people. This place is just as wonderful as it looks in the listing. We were a little concerned with our walk to the beach, but that too was perfect. It is a very short walk. In fact, we were told that we could drive over and park in an area near the boardwalk, but it was close enough that driving a car over was pointless. I can't recommend this home enough! Thank you so much for helping make our week so wonderful.
Thank you so much for your kind review and for sharing with us your enjoyments. I am pleased that you too agree how close our home is to the beach and I hope others might read your review and not be concerned. I hope the wedding went superbly well and that we might get to meet you ourselves one day if you in Destin again. We will be refurbishing over the next couple of months and people vacationing or celebrating in our home in 2013 will also have beach chairs, an umbrella and toys for the pool.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to post a review, it is helpful to those considering our home.

Peace Place was a great house for our large family. Everyone had their space. Even though the weather did not cooperate, we still had our "princess party".

Kiwi Grove worked great for our stay of 15 right before Memorial Day....very convenient to beach and love this section of the beach....great location for large family or some sort of reunion for a arge group.....
Great Week for our Family
June 10, 2011
11 adults and 9 children (ages 2 mo. - 11 years) enjoyed the beauty, spaciousness, and convenience of the home. The owners were very gracious, but stayed in the background. The pool turned out to be a very popular gathering place for adults and kids especially when the shade took over. The kitchen and the outdoor cooking facilities were very convenient for several cooks at a time. Outdoor showers made beach clean-up easy. Plenty of parking for our 5 vehicles was an added plus.

We rented this for our wedding so that all of our immediate family could stay at the same place. We also had our reception here. It's a beautiful house and there is plenty of room for everyone - we never felt cramped, even with 20 people staying there!

Great Place for a small Wedding!

The name says it all, I wish I could have picked up the pool area and took it home with me! The house was large and beautifully decorated. The owner Chuck worked hard to make the courtyard perfect for our son’s wedding. I even asked for perfect weather and they delivered! I would defiantly recommend this house.

My husband and i rented the home for our wedding guest Feb 17-20 and it was perfect. Everyone loved the home, my 9 year old son didn't want to leave. The home is perfectly located to the beach, outlets and resturants. the owners came by several times and were very friendly and polite. The home was well maintained and we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks for allowing us to utilize your home.
October 13, 2010
Wonderful home! The photos do not do this place justice. This home exceeded my expectations. We stayed for two nights with a group of 13 adults. Everyone was able to get his/her own space. The gas grill was especially nice for our cookout. I had a wonderful time celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary with my original wedding party. We will definitely do it again. Thanks!

Peace Place was a wonderful house and just what we needed. Kids and adults all had a fantastic trip. Thanks to the owners for being so gracious.
Hi Katherine!! I have been meaning to email you back. Our stay was amazing! It was even better than I thought it would be. The house was wonderful. Very clean and well maintained. The apartment worked out great for my sister and her 3 small children. The walk to the beach was no problem at all. I can't wait to rent from you guys again. Thanks for making our stay even better than I expected!!!
Arrival: 14 June 2014 Departure: 21 June 2014
Our large family of 19 loved our vacation at Peace Place. There was plenty of room for everyone to be together yet there were many places in the house you could go if you needed some quite time. The description of the house and the amenities was perfect. The house and the outside areas were very well maintained and clean. The pool area was probably our favorite part of the house so we spent lots of time there. There were plenty of water toys supplied by the owner to use in the pool or at the beach which was great because we didn't have to take any with us. During our stay the fountain in the courtyard and a bathroom doorknob were broke. After contacting the office they had the problems fixed the next day. We truly loved having all our family under such a wonderful house and would definitely recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to Destin! Sally
Mr. David and Mrs. Katherine,
Thank you so much for letting us rent the Peace Place. We enjoyed it very much and you have a beautiful beach house. It was very roomie and we didn't have any problems with everyone getting a bed. Thank you so much again and we will look forward on our next visit. =) Have a great summer and day.

My friends and I had a great time staying at Peace Place. The house was quite spacious for so many girls in one house. The kitchen also had everything we needed to prepare meals. Loved that the beach was such a short walk from the house, the only thing that could have made the stay better was less rain!
Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway
Amazing! Beautiful! 30 August 2013
Property was incredible! Owners David and Kathrine were wonderful to work with. We stayed there for a long weekend with our church and enjoyed every minute. Photos and description of property were accurate. Will definitely be staying here again!!
September 2013 - George and Family
What a wonderful vacation home. My entire family consisting of two grandparents (me), four fortish children/spouses, and ten grandchildren from four to 18 in age. What a perfect home for the 16 of us. A comfortable bed for every person. The home is much larger than the photos reveal and both of my daughters commented that the online photos didn't do the home justice. Very clean and up to date, you won't be dissappointed with this home. A very easy walk to the beach, and the beach area was great. We spent time at the beach every day, and then the rest of the day was in the pool. The grandkids loved the pool. The home is also very close to a lot of local attractions and great food places. We had our breakfast in the home, then lunch out at a nice restaurant, then in the evenings we used the crock pot, or the grill and had dinner in.
This home was more than we expected, so I can highly recommend "Peace Place" as a great vacation retreat.
We had an amazing time and enjoyed your home very much. It was perfect for our family. The pool was great and the babies had so much fun swimming. We will definetly keep your contact information and will be sure to hand out your name to anyone we know who may want to spend some time in Destin!

This guest posted their review off one of our other sites;
I would like to start off by saying thank you to David and Katherine. You kept in touch with me throughout the process. Thank you. The house was gorgeous and it was really close to the beach. It was oh so open and the inviting. My families included 10 adults and 10 children. The beach was so close that I felt comfortable letting the teenagers go and enjoy themselves. They sure took advantage of that. We enjoyed the beach and the pool. It was really great to be able to stay and have all the comforts of home and have beach and pool accessories that we could use and not have to take home with us. You really did think of everything guests would need. All in all we had a wonderful time and would love to return soon. Thanks again. Sheba
WEEKEND AT PEACE PLACE and LOVED IT!
I'm having trouble leaving a review, is there any chance you could do it for me?
"A group of 13 friends and myself recently spent a weekend at Peace Place and loved it! We all fit very comfortably, the pool area was even prettier than advertised, and the beach was absolutely perfect. The owner David and Harmony Beach Rentals made the process simple and painless. We all came away extremely pleased, and would highly recommend this rental. Thanks for a great weekend!"
Thanks for the use of this awesome house. We loved the layout and enjoyed the pool! We are sure to have wonderful memories of our stay in Destin!
Families from Kansas and California met for a wonderful week of sun, swimming, great food and fantastic memories - all with the back drop of the Dolphin Street - a fantastic, comfortable and functional home for 17 people for a week that went by much too fast. Destin was a great place to visit! How lucky we were to find such a lovely home to relax by the pool, play games and make family memories to last a lifetime. Thank you. Maryann

Son's Wedding on the Beach
Spent the week for our sons wedding 'on the beach'. Peace Place was perfect for our entire family. We enjoyed the pool and patio area very much. The worst part of our week has been packing to go home! Thank you for the opportunity to stay at peace place.
What a wonderful time we had with our entire family of 18 people from ages 2 to 62. The weather was perfect and this wonderful house was perfect. Spent most of our time at the pool and beach. My husband and I enjoyed seeing all of our 9 grandchildren playing on the beach together and have many pictures of memories here.
Our family gathered at Peace Place for a fabulous week. The house was beautiful and accommodated all 17 of us very comfortably. We had plenty of parking for all of our cars. The kitchen was large enough for all the cooks and there was more than enough seating at tables for all to sit and eat. We had two babies and they had quiet bedrooms from all the noise to sleep easily. The courtyard and pool area was our favorite place. There was shade and sun to meet everyone's preference so all could still enjoy being together. The outside area was relaxing to say the least. David, the owner, was a quick email away to answer questions. The rental company was very pleasant and helpful. Our family will definately come back to this house hopefully next summer.
