Description of the Destin vacation condo rental
This condo is direct Gulf-front at its best! Our condo is on the top floor and our view is fantastic. Located at the ever-popular Holiday Surf and Racquet Club on exclusive Holiday Isle... a peninsula surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor... View sugar white sand and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico right from your own living room and private balcony!

You don't have to cross the road to enjoy the surf here. Removed from US Highway 98 traffic, but minutes from restaurants, shopping, boat docks, fishing, golf, and amusements. Walk or jog on Holiday Isle's two and a half miles of sidewalks, or bike through its quiet neighborhood streets. Nothing else in Destin can compare!

This one bedroom, one bath, seventh-floor unit sleeps six... with two FULL SIZE beds in the bedroom and a queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room. The cook will find a fully-equipped kitchen... with a view of the Gulf of Mexico to boot! Dining table seats six. We have a 42' Hi Def TV in the living room and a 32' Hi-Def TV in the bedroom in case you hit a rainy day or want to watch a DVD at night.

NOTE: Minimum rental age 25, and this WILL BE VERIFIED at check-in. Additionally, we do not allow any Pets and our condo is a No Smoking unit.

Just outside Holiday Surf's door you can step into our heated pool... or take a few steps across sugar white sand to swim in the beautiful emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. Holiday Surf offers two lighted tennis courts and exercise facilities onsite. Opportunities for paddle boarding, kayaking, parasailing, snorkeling, and fishing can be found along the beach too.

Holiday Surf & Racquet Club is located a little east of the 'jetties,' where the Gulf of Mexico and Destin Harbor meet, a spot well-known for great snorkeling and diving. And the perfect place for the end of the day... Here you can watch a parade of boats returning from Gulf to harbor as, behind them, the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico.

Only a few minutes' drive will take you to Destin Harbor... home of Destin's world-class charter fishing fleet, plus sailing excursions, sunset cruises, pleasure boat rentals, diving, and snorkeling trips... also, wonderful water-view restaurants and fun dockside bars. Nearby are abundant shopping opportunities... from exclusive boutiques to outlet stores, antiques, and art to sandals and bathing suits. Numerous golf courses and amusement parks are only a short drive away.
Area Information
Our condo is located in the "Holiday Isle" section of Destin, just down the beach from the east jetty. Holiday Isle's beaches are less crowded than other Destin areas because there are no buildings over 7 stories. The beaches in Destin Florida are superior to any other in the continental U.S. and the crystal clear, emerald green water is fantastic to swim in. Holiday Isle is a very upscale section in Destin and when you travel down Gulf Shore Drive to our condo you will pass by multi-million dollar gulf front homes which are beautifully landscaped. The aesthetic of Holiday Isle is gorgeous, beautifully landscaped and quiet as it is off the 'main drag' of Destin.
Attractions within Walking Distance

There are several great restaurants on right on Gulf Shore Drive (our street) about 1 mile from our place: Bric a Brac, LaPaz, Capriccio Cafe and Louisiana Lagniappe. You can walk to Destin's best snorkeling spot just west of our place at the "Jetties" too.

Loved it!

The condo was beautiful and the view was fantastic. Plenty of room in the condo for our family and the décor was nice and homey feeling. The condo was stocked with everything we needed. We saw dolphins, sting rays, and a shark from the balcony in the condo. Beautiful view of the ocean. Loved watching the sunrise and set from the balcony. The white sandy beach was full of shells and the pool was cleaned everyday. Close to many amenities. Mark and Judy were super friendly, provided valuable information, and made booking the condo a breeze!

Thanks Mark and Judi for the great work you do to make us feel comfortable. The condo is in very nice conditions and it has a priceless balcony/view. I think because is the area, we saw dolphins every day from the balcony. The pool was very enjoyable too because it's a heated pool, our baby boy had a blast!! The condo is very nice and comfortable for us, we were 2 adults and a baby. We'd like to come back!!
