Description of the Destin vacation townhouse rental
Perfect place for a peaceful vacation for 2. Newly renovated. Stay directly on the beach in the perfect private place for a romantic vacation or peaceful getaway. Plus FREE daily beach set up service March until November. One king bedroom town home with plenty of space . You cannot get closer to the shore than this. This Destin town home has its own LARGE PRIVATE attached deck and is directly on 300 feet of PRIVATE BEACH on beautiful Crystal Beach, Destin's premier beach.

This town home has recently been renovated and updated. It offers a fully furnished kitchen, spacious king bedroom, Cable and WiFi Internet, 2 TV's and DVD players and two private parking spaces right in front of the unit for easy offloading of luggage. There is a grill just a few yards from the front door. A laundry facility is located in the building.

Located at the west end corner of a small single story gated community, the complex is not crowded and free from the many hassles of many beachfront properties.

Couples appreciate the privacy of being in a corner beachfront unit with unobstructed views and no foot traffic passing by.

There is the added security of a gated community.

Guests enjoy the big private deck that no other guests in the complex can access. The only access to the deck is from the living room of the town home. There is NOTHING obstructing the view of the Gulf from this unit. Dolphins enjoy frolicking in the Destin area since it is a feeding ground for these gentle and playful creatures which adds to the enjoyment of our guests.

The town home is conveniently located just four blocks from Destin's premier shopping and entertainment area, Destin Commons and many restaurants. Its central location to attractions makes for convenience and saves time and gas.

Seven golf courses are conveniently located just 5 to 15 minutes away. And the largest designer factory outlet in the USA is located just 10 minutes drive east.

The Destin Harbor hosts the country's largest charter fishing fleet and is only 10 minutes drive west. Plan a fishing trip or enjoy watching the catches of the day from the dock.

For a direct beachfront vacation like it used to be, peaceful and hassle free, you will enjoy your stay in "By the Beautiful Sea" and you will love the private beach!

The Capri is an updated version of old Florida at its finest where you drive right up to your front door. The Capri was first a motel prior to being converted to single story town homes three of which are now beach fronts..

Pets are not allowed on the Destin beaches nor the beachfront rentals.

Right on the beach!

great townhouse with all amenities. Very quiet as we did not have direct neighbors. Loved it! May not have been as private if the townhouse beside us had been occupied.


Bartlett, TN USA


Everything was just perfect. We had everything we needed and then some. The bed was more comfortable than my own. The view was fantastic and the distance from the door to the beach was short and sweet!! It was our first getaway after 4 years together and it is exactly what we needed. The decorations and furniture were great as gives you the beach effect but does not go overboard with it.. I need to find out where they bought the mattress!!! :)

Wonderful Week Away

We really enjoyed our week away in Destin at this property. It was clean and right on the beach. We loved that our condo came with an umbrella and chairs right on the beach. It was quiet, and it was within walking distance of some restaurants and coffee. Great location for a morning run. My boyfriend and I wanted a week away without a schedule, and that is exactly what we got. The staff was super friendly, and we definitely want to come back next year. We are even thinking about getting married in Destin.

Amazing jewel

We stayed 7 days at the Capri! What a wonderful, well kept condo that delivers everything mentioned in the ad. The deck,beach and privacy was amazing. Seeing dolphins was great. We will be back!

great vacation

We had a great vacation at the Capri, quiet but close to everything we could possibly want. Restaurants and bars were very good with unbelievable attention. The Capri was very clean and even nicer than we imagined it could be. Parking at the door and having our own deck over the sand was great and for both sunsets and sun rises. We saw Dolphins daily. Linda was over the top with service and friendliness. Can't wait to book again for maybe longer next time.

Thank you, Ken and I look forward to welcoming you back.

First trip to the Panhandle

This was an enjoyable first trip to the beautiful beaches of the Florida PanhandleThe unit kid maintained immaculately and has recently been renovated.A large deck off the living room provides an uncluttered view of the gulf fans beach. We definitely recommend it.

Thank you, Mr. Johnson

We'll be back!

Wonderful! Clean, quiet, spacious and right on the beach! Even though the weather wasn't great in early Feb, we were able to walk on the beach, eat breakfast on the deck looking out at the ocean and even saw some dolphins one afternoon. Good location, gated so very safe. My only suggestion would be that in the description, it should mention that this is a renovated 1950s style motel. We were looking for a cottage or townhouse and actually drove by it and had to call for directions when we were right there because we didn't know. Once inside it is very private and front door parking was great. We will come back one day when the weather is nicer and have already recommended it to friends!

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Debbie, Thank you for being a guest. This is old Florida as it finest. Drive right up to your front door and enjoy a one story unit with a huge private deck right on the beach. No high rises in sight. The Capri has 300 feet of private beach. It was indeed a 60's motel converted to 22 town homes; three of which are beach fronts. Mine was recently renovated again and has the largest private deck in the complex.

A Must Book!!!

My wife and I were very happy that we chose this property for our vacation. First, it is located inside of a gated community. Security is not a problem whatsoever. The home was very cozy and had all that we needed. The bedroom has a huge bed and the couch in the living room is very comfortable as well. The kitchen is very well stocked and the air conditioner worked great. We loved getting up at sunrise every morning, stepping out onto a HUGE beachfront porch and watched the sun come up over the horizon. This is a must book! I would highly recommend it to anyone and I would book again without blinking.

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Thank you Rectors and I look forward to having you as guests again. We have stunning sunsets as well but they are most breath taking in the late summer/fall with vivid pinks, orange and teals. If your next trip is during a full moon you'll see our sugar white sand beach at its best!

Enjoyed a really wonderful vacation in Destin. The Capri # 116 is CCC. Clean, Comfortable and Convenient. The accommodations were perfect, spacious and modern. The property is very nice with front door parking. Beach access is great , along with the beach service. We could not have asked for better. We will definitely be back again.

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you both again.

A little oasis on the ocean

When we first pulled up to the property, it was not what I expected. It reminded me of a motel. However the location, amenities, beach and water views and access could not be beat, so we went in! I'm so glad we did, because we had a wonderful relaxing honeymoon. The deck overlooks the ocean and was perfect for morning coffee, afternoon book, and nighttime star gazing! The interior has been recently renovated and was very clean. We had everything we needed to enjoy our time. Local shopping and entertainment is great. Short drives to seaside, harbor walk and bay village. Seafood is everywhere and it's all good! We shopped at the local publix for groceries and had a relaxing coffee and breakfast each morning. The weather cooperated with our stay wonderfully! We are so happy we stayed and didn't let the first impressions outside stop us. After living there for a day, we eagerly returned to our little oasis on the ocean after each fun filled day of exploring. We also took great advantage of the included chair and umbrella setup on the beach as well as long walks along the beach. We left two yellow Destin cup holders that work perfectly with the chairs on the beach, so that you can keep sand off of your drinks! Try it! You will enjoy it as much as we did. It was a pleasant change from the resort hotels that we usually frequent.

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

I wish and your wife many years of happiness. With the privacy of this town home most of my guests are honeymooners and those celebrating anniversaries. My guests enjoy the privacy and huge private deck right on the beach. I hope you will return one day to celebrate an anniversary. The Capri is old Florida at it's finest with gated security and parking right at your front door. The Capri did start as a motel and was converted to individually owners town homes.

Greats setting. Very comfortable

Love this place!

This is out 6th year staying here. We absolutely love staying here. The recent updates make it all the better. Only steps form the sand. Minutes away from grocery stores, Silver Sands outlet, restaurants, and so many other convinces. If you don't feel like driving the are several dinning choices close by. I can't say enough about this condo.

Mike Wright

Los Suenos, Costa Rica

Love! Love! Love!

OMG! I loved this placed. LInda you did a wonderful job on decorating. It's so beachy, clean and fresh. The snow white sand is like no other in the world. I love not having to get in elevators and walk up stairs, just park at the front door. The private deck is great to have Corona's or Martinis with Blue Cheese Olives with my best friend who I have been married to for 27 years. Thank you Linda for being so nice. I will always remember that kindness. That's how friendships grow.

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Yes, that big deck right on the beach is great for coffee or cocktails! Thank you for being a guest and I look forward to your return visits.

Loved this townhouse

I booked this townhouse last minute and Linda was incredible to work with, made sure me and my guest were taken care of. She went above and beyond to ensure we had a great weekend. Loved the newly renovated condo and more importantly the location. Close to everything and loved the convinence of walking out of townhouse directly onto beach! I will definitely stay here again. Thank you Linda!

Linda Cherry

Owner's reply:

Kara, I am so glad you enjoyed our beautiful beach and my town house. It was a long drive for a few hours of paradise. I look forward to welcoming you back when you can stay longer.

Soooooo Nice

Excellent accommodations, and surroundings, everything went as expected, and had hoped for. A real dream came true while we had a completely heavenly time, with 1 family member who visited with us for a day. We discovered we are expecting our very first child ! Thanks !


Terry, Ms.

Great views and location!!

We were thoroughly satisfied with our stay at this condo. It was only steps away from the sand and the views were outstanding. The room was excellent and very clean. All dealings with Ms. Cherry was easy and she is very concerned for her visitors comforts and leisure. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking. We will definitely be back many more times. It is centrally located and convenient to all that you would want to do.

Our daughters had a wonderfull time!..Dec.26,2009

We were their with our two daughters for new year, the weather was cold but we did have a great time . When we walk on the sand we felt it was like walking on the snow my girls loved it . Even though, it was cold they played on the sand and they ran in the water... We stayed at Capri #116 it had a wonderfull deck and the view was amazing. At the new year night we did see fire works from our deck it was wonderfull. We will like to come and stay in Capri #116 again. Thanks to Denise & Bob for making our vacation so enjoyable and relaxing!..

Great place on the beach!

This was a perfect choice for us, just a few steps from the beach with great views of the water from the private deck. The condo was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. After walking down the beach and looking at the neighboring properties, we were glad we chose the Capri, as it was the most private and had easiest access to the beach. Would definitely recommend this to couples or families with 1 or 2 children.

Picture Perfect

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan on staying here again for our next trip to Destin. Everything was as described. We could not ask for a better value for the view and privacy. The water was perfect-temp, color, clarity. It didn’t hurt that we had picture perfect weather either. Thanks for everything.


Lexington, KY

Fantastic View

We had a wonderful time here. Loved the deck! The view cannot be beat and our two year old quickly learned to stay away from the rail, no problem. We found your place on the internet and could not have been more pleased with your hospitality, the accommodations (including wireless Internet which we used every day), and this part of the beach and the gorgeous view. We saw dolphins on a couple of days and thoroughly enjoyed hearing the waves at night, seeing the stars and carrying only towels, toys and keys to the beach. There is no other way to vacation at the beach. Thank you & we can’t wait to return. Michael, Amy & Dean


Laurel, Mississippi

Summer Bliss

We hit the jackpot staying at Capri by the Gulf #116! This unit has a deck that sits DIRECTLY on the beach! If you played baseball and hit a center field flyball it would land in the beautiful emarald waters of the gulf! That's how close you are to the water! Sliding glass doors let the beach into your living/dining area and anyone who sleeps on the sofa can drift off to the sound of the waves crashing onshore. We saw dolphins, sharks, seagulls, pelicans, sand crabs(night), doves, beautiful sunsets and more! Bod and Denise made the "business end" of renting this property simple. They were are know their business and they care about their customers. I only hope this unit is available when I save the money to come to this paradise again! p.s. They EVEN welcome you with a basket full of great snacks!:) Angie Mississippi

On The Beach

I am going to review our condo and the service we recieved from Bob on the Beach. The condo was great, right on the beach. Our deck was huge, by far the biggest out of all the condos in the area. We had everything we needed like a home away from home. Flashlights for night, chairs and umbrellas for day. The beach was gorgeous no jellyfish and the location was great. We were in the center of everything, either way we went it led us to a restuarant or an attraction. Oh I have to say the welcome gift basket was so nice and personal, I sure didn't have to bring any extra snacks. Thanks so much Denise and Bob for giving us the relaxing get away we needed. Oh I almost forgot the dolphins every single morning. Who needed a glass bottom boat, we had all the sites right out of our deck. It really was a home away from home, I came back with all my clothes clean (washer/dryer) put them away in ten minutes; now that was a vacation! Thanks again we will be seeing you next year!!!!
