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.

Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion for the Xmas 2015. Each year we tend to find new spots. This location though was very beautiful...worth each penny we spent. the house is very gorgeous and descrete. The lake behind the property and the sound of the waves hitting the shore across the street from the house at night just worked wonders. A truly relaxing experience. And yes.... The heated pool was the kid's favorite spot in the house.

Great wedding location

  • 5 of 5

I had my wedding reception at Destin's Destiny in April 2015. My family and I enjoyed the houses so much. Mary Rose was nice about everything, she's quick to responded to emails or phone calls. She made my check in and check out so easy. My guest for my wedding was talking about how nice the houses was. Its very spacious, everything was clean. She had everything we needed in the house. My husband, daughter and I stayed in the carriage house it was great for us. I would love to stay again if I have a big group with me.

Sand and Sharpies

  • 5 of 5

We had about very large group for a family friends trip stay at Destin's Destiny. Mary Rose was wonderful to work with and very easy to reach and accommodated us very well with some special requests. I agree that the pictures don't do this house justice but it's very spacious and comfortable for large groups. The public beach access is about 5 or 6 houses down. The pool in the front I initially thought was odd when we booked the house for the trip but I ended up loving the location of the pool! Friendly people biking and walking all over the place...it was very comfortable and we had plenty of balcony/patio to sit back and relax while the kids played in the pool. A couple of suggestions...bring swim shoes for the kids to use in the pool and make sure sunscreen dries for at least 20 minutes before entering the pool. Most of the kids got cuts on their feet from being in the pool a lot and we made the pool cloudy during our trip by not letting the sunscreen set/dry enough. The driveway is a bit of a challenge trying to get cars in and out when people want to go and do different things at different times but we had no problem accommodating 9 cars in the driveway. I had read a previous review about the house needing to be updated so I was a little concerned but the only thing I found in need of an update was two sofas in the den...everything else was perfectly fine and nice. I have relayed my suggestion to Mary Rose and I'm confident she will take care of it. The elevator was great for our upstairs guests to get luggage up and down and the carriage house provided a nice and private separate setting for our friends with young children. We had a wonderful trip and this was a great house for a huge group!

An amazing home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had my daughter's wedding at the beach and the reception at Destin's Destiny. We had enough room for all of her friends and other family members. It was the perfect location and working with Mary Rose was wonderful!! We couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks, Mary Rose. We hope to come back sometime in the near future!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for, and the accommodations were great! The setup and booking was exceptionally easy with Mary Rose, and when we arrived, the house was even better than expected. Pictures don't do this house justice! It was so spacious and fit 17 girls just fine. The pool in the front is such a cool addition to the house, especially with the overlooking balcony. The beach access was only a little walk down the road, which wasn't a problem at all. Overall we had such a fabulous time!

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.
