activities and attractions in Destin Gulf Coast North

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, "Paradise!" The Destin area is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports.   Bungee jumping, go karts, bumper boats, miniature golf, deep sea fishing, dolphin cruises, water park, bowling, movie theaters!  All you could want in a small area!

Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes two to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why! Destin and Miramar Beach run together and extend about 12 miles from the Destin Bridge to the Sandestin Resort in Miramar Beach. Loads of activity packed into a small area!

Owner Update re Beach Wagon

Review submitted: March 4, 2014   Date of arrival: December 24, 2013

Thanks to the previous reviewer who pointed out we needed a "wagon". We have purchased one and it is available to all guests to carry beach chairs, beach towels, cold beverages, or little kids to the beach!

Recommended for: families with young children, girls getaway, romantic getaway

First time renting a house for a week

Review submitted: October 15, 2013   Date of arrival: October 5, 2013

I was impressed by the location, overall appearance and price. I would have liked a little later check out time though. I felt like I was rushed with a 9:00 am check out time. The clothes dryer needs some work, we would have to run it 2 to 3 times to get a few towels dry. Some of the other houses had a wagon to carry all their beach stuff in, we would have to make two trips sometimes. That would make a great addition / help to the place. I would have no problem renting this place again though.

Owners response: Great Suggestion! Valencia now has a wagon to pull to the beach! Take your beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, coolers, and kids to the beach!
