2mins to Beach, Like 2 Beach Houses in One, Pvt Heated Pool!


Property Details

Updated: Sep 23, 2014
House, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, 20 Sleeps

Very close to the beach (2mins)! - Public Beach Access leads you onto stunning soft white sands and emerald green waters of the Panhandle. Our luxurious, large and comfortable home suits everyones needs from family and friends to groups for Weddings, birthday celebrations, reunions, etc.

Many who stay at our home enjoy the short walk down to the beach in the evening and say it is an absolute must to enjoy the evening sounds of beach waves, cooling sands and watch the sun set – serenity to end your perfect day.

There is so much to do in Destin, if you can tear yourself away from our welcoming home and private pool couryard! Anyone interested in recreational activities, will be pleased to know there are golf courses, waterparks, go-karting, various restaurants, fire work displays, dolphin cruises, some fabulous outlet malls (Silver Sands), science museum (great fun for the family!) etc. within an approx. 3 mile drive and we 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). There is also the huge convenience of a supermarket (Publix) less than a mile from Peace Place, for you to stock up on your vacational supplies (there are two bbq's for your use - gas and grill coal). The private pool has optional heating and, therefore, available for use all year round! The pool is also surrounded by a wall and foilage so you will have the privacy to enjoy with your group without the worries of pedestrians trying to have a nose at what you're up to.

All our guests enjoy free WiFi and cable television.

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 in large groups.

For up to 20 guests.

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.

Known as Peace Place in Destin’s Crystal Beach community, this beautiful home truly showcases the Florida beach-house lifestyle.

Charming old iron gates lead you into your own personal paradise in the peaceful courtyard filled with tropical foliage as well as scented Magnolias and ancient Live Oaks. Relax in the courtyard and enjoy the privacy of your own pool which can be heated in the cooler months.

Reunions, weddings, anniversaries or receptions. They all become easy here, with generous space for family gatherings in the spacious living and dining areas as well as the outdoor areas. You will enjoy the well appointed large gourmet kitchen where families can cook fine meals together while creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime. You can seat 18 for dinner. Professionally decorated and completely furnished, with a total of 6 bedrooms and 5 baths, Peace Place sleeps 20 comfortably.

Parking is for 6+ cars. RV, BUS or BOAT is OK. Very easy in and out.

Within one mile you will find a major regional shopping center, a 14 screen movie complex, Publix, WalMart, the Big Kahuna Water Park and more.

Within three miles you will find 50 steak/chops/seafood restaurants, nine golf courses, two major resorts, Destin Harbor, Destin Commons Regional Mall and the largest discount shopping complex in the US.

Your hosts; David & Katherine are actually English and came over to the Destin area having fallen in love with it so much; with its white sand and emerald clear water, friendly locals and fabulous weather they have decided to invest in what they see to be the perfect vacation home. They have also bought another house within a 10 minute drive so they can be on hand to help out and offer an outstanding service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
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!

Girls Week

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I had a great time staying at Peace Place. There was plenty of room for all 20 of us and ample bathrooms for so many girls. The kitchen had everything we needed as well. The short walk to the beach made for a great week, the only thing that could have made it better was no rain!

Great family vacation home....we loved our week!

  • 5 of 5
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.
