repeat vistor

I am a repeat visitor to Destin's Destiny and must say that the home is very nice. On each visit we had a group of 19 + (Family Reunion) and the accommodations worked out well. It rained the entire weekend, but thanks to Destiny West the a club house approximately 5 houses down the strip that had a basketball court for the teens, the adults were able to keep our sanity for the lack of beach activity. I would recommend this home to any large group that prefers separate sleeping and bath quarters. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware and utensils for those wanting to prepare meals. There is also a charcoal and gas grill on site for outdoor cooking .There are many attractions nearby(shopping, amusement parks w/ adult go carts) for those needing a brake from the indoors. The owners are very friendly and only a phone call away if you need them. I would most definitely use this home again.

family reunion

  • 5 of 5
This is the third time our family has stayed in Destin's Destiny. It fits our family so well and the kids love the pool which is so convenient in the front and heated. The house is pretty, well maintained and comfortable. My sister rents the house next door and my brother a house across the street on the beach. It is a perfect set up for our family reunion. Mary Rose is a very conscientious owner and strives to make sure all who stay there have a great time. We look forward to returning for the next reunion.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Destin's Destiny for 7 days and loved every minute of it. The home has plenty of room and not far from the beach at all. This was our first time to stay in Destin and we hope to be able to come back again next year. We've only been to Gulf Shores, Alabama in the past, but it was well worth the drive from Tennessee to come to Destin. The home is not far from shopping and dining, but situated just right in a quiet community. There was a wedding on the beach and the reception was being held next door the first night when we arrived and we thought that was really pretty. The pool is great for children, as well as us adults. We had it heated and worked out perfectly for our one year old to enjoy also. We rented bikes for the week and everyone in the family enjoyed riding them down the strip. The owner was great and friendly responding quickly to anything we had a question about during our stay. Great home, great location and we hope to return again. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We truly felt "at home"!

Great location

  • 3 of 5
House is in great location. We enjoyed the pool even though it was cold. The house has alot of room. The down fall of the house is that its out dated. My friend rented a house down the street from Destin's Destiny and the house had a flat screen tv's in each room. This house has tube tv's and some rooms the tv hangs the wall. For the same price my friend paid it was more updated. We are in the 2000s not the 90s. Hotels come with flat screen and DVDs now. When we were looking at other houses on home away just to see if they were updated with their electronics, sure enough they were updated. Also the sofas seems very wore out and the pillows on the sofa dirty. You can see the dirt on the corners of the pillows. Hopefully the comforters are washed or dry cleaned because the sofas are sure not being cleaned. They really need to be replaced. The house is to pretty to not be updated.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the location and wished you would have taken advantage of heating the pool which was available but your group opted not to do. In regards to the televisions, we had replaced all but 2 (one of which is the hanging type but we've kept to enable more surface area for the top floor). I am guessing you ended up staying in one of those rooms. Our spring cleaning is usually done in April and I assure you the sofas, pillows and comforters are all addressed. I'm sorry your stay was at the tail end of that.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5
We spent an extended weekend at this house and loved it. Lots of space (we slept 15 easily) and the house is in pristine condition. The location is great (only a 2 minute walk to the beach) and we even had a good time talking with one of the neighbors. I highly recommend this place.

We spent the Christmas holiday at destin's destiny and had a fantastic time. The house was great! We had great views of the beach and enjoyed sitting by the pool. The house is located in a great neighborhood and is close to all of the shopping and restaurants ( which we enjoyed). Mary was so helpful and made us feel right at home; we would definitely stay here again. We can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for having us and having such a neat place to stay!!

Location

From the Owner

We are full time residents of The Emerald Coast and wanted an opportunity to share Destin's beauty with others interested in visiting this area of Florida. We love the location of our rental home because of its proximity to the snowy white sugary sands of the Gulf of Mexico. It is also the only home on this strip of Grand Palms in Destiny that has a private pool in the front of the house so you can people watch in comfort under the shade after spending time on the beach across the street. There are lots of restaurants within a mile (Crab Trap right down the street), very close to 6 award-winning golf courses, and Destin Commons, Grand Boulevard and Silver Sands Outlet Stores(largest designer outlet in the nation :-) are all within less than 2-6 miles from the house! If you don't want to go to the beach, spend time at Big Kahuna's waterpark that's conveniently located as well.
