About the Owner

We want to welcome you to this beautiful paradise called Destin! We lived in Virginia Beach, Va for many years and then moved here 14 years ago (and both of us were originally born and raised in upstate New York) We've been in the rental business for 26 years.....been married 27 years.....and very happily at that! 15 years ago we were considering moving to Hawaii until a relative said we just HAD to visit Destin...he said it was like being in Hawaii right here on the mainland! So we visited and fell instantly in love with the place.....went home, sold our rental business and moved here in a matter of months. The rest is history. We have 2 children.....20 and 21.... & have homeschooled them from the start. We believe in Jesus!, family and integrity. Hopefully you will enjoy your Destin vacation! Once you get that sand in your can never get it out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to let you know that we loved your house. It was clean, well equipped, plenty of room for all of us and close to beach. It was everything that your website told us. In fact, my family said that this was the best home that we have rented. We have rented homes in Destin two times, also one in Hilton Head, and one in South Carolina. Thanks for all that you did to have the home ready. It was beautiful.

We stayed at Island Pearl July 19 to the 26th.

My entire family 0f 16 spent a week in March at Island Pearl. The home is exactly as Dawn and John describe. It is beautiful. We have stayed on the Gulf Coast at several locations but Island Pearl is without doubt the nicest and most spacious of any we have visited. My extended family ranged in age from 10 to 69 and everyone loved the heated backyard pool and close proximity to the beach. My kids and grandkids said this was their favorite location ever. When we return to Destin we will definitely stay at Island Pearl. Destin is a 5 star city and Island Pearl is a 5 star location.

Owner's Response: Our goal, for the past 28 years of being in the rental business, has been to make our clients vacation as memorable as this customers was. Its rare that tenants care enough to notice the effort we owners put into trying to give them a wonderful home/vacation and its rare that if they do notice, that they take the time to give a super report like these kind folks did. We thank you very much for it!! and look forward to your soon return!

We recently stayed at Island Pearl with a large group of family ages 10 months to 86 years old. Dawn and John Foy were wonderful to work with throughout the entire rental process. They were always quick to respond to any questions I had and were so friendly and knowledgeable. The house was BEAUTIFUL! It was much more spacious than the pictures reflect. We were all already very impressed and excited for our trip based on the pictures shown, and and once we arrived and looked around we were very pleasantly surprised! It was even better than expected! The kitchen was big enough for several people to prepare a meal together and the seating was more than adequate. The common areas of the home were very comfortable. The bedrooms were all perfect and everything in the home was immaculate. The pool was so nice to have since we had babies in tow and some older adults who weren't able to do the beach. We also really loved enjoying the pool in the evenings, as the back of the home is well lit and the pool lights were really fun for the kids since they were multicolored. The beach was a short distance away, everyone walked back and forth with no complaints. It was close enough to go back to the house for lunch and then return to the beach without feeling like you were exhausted :) The ocean and the beach were BEAUTIFUL! The home was VERY conveniently located to restaurants, activities, grocery, liquor stores, gas station, etc. I hope to return again some day! You won't regret renting at Island Pearl :)
