Playa del Mar is a gorgeous beach view home in Destin, Florida. This immaculate 5 bedroom home is located in Destiny by the Sea, Destin's most exclusive residence. Boasting incredible gulf views from the second and third floors, Playa del Mar is the perfect choice at half the price of the homes directly on the beach. Playa del Mar features 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and almost 5,000 square feet. This vacation home features an elevator spanning all three floors making the home accessible for all guests.

Playa del Mar went under a complete renovation in 2009 making this home like new. Destiny by the Sea features several beach accesses within a one minute walk of the home and a gorgeous community pool and spa for your use. This mediterranean inspired home must not be overlooked. Enormous porches show off the beautiful emerald waters from every direction.

Playa del Mar features several different entertaining spaces making this home a wonderful choice for large groups and family gatherings. Enjoy the large gourmet kitchen with sub-zero refrigerator and Viking gas appliances. The home has been professionally decorated and the added touches help to make you feel at home during your vacation. Destiny by the Sea is a gated, beach front community that provides 24 hour security and a wonderful pool. The home is located within walking distance of the Crab Trap restaurant and within a very short drive of world class shopping and fine dining.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My group and I have rented a house every year for the past five years in the beautiful subdivision, “Destiny by the Sea”. So far, this is the nicest home we’ve rented! Loved the spacious rooms, the balconies, the bar, and the new renovation. The only drawback we experienced was that the kitchen and the den were separate and not open to each other. You couldn’t be in the den and talk to someone in the kitchen because you couldn’t see them. In the other homes we’ve rented you always have a very big and open space in regards to the kitchen and den being open to each other. We felt a separation between the two rooms. Other than that, Playa del Mar is truly a beautiful home, and we had a wonderful time!!

Great 4 couple retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great house as usual in Destiny-by-the-Sea. We have stayed in many different houses in this community and this is one of the best. The only issue at this house (which we have experienced in almost every other house in DbtS) is that the electronic equipment is always in disarray, non-functioning equipment and\or disconnected or mis-connected. We wanted to watch a DVD one night and it took a hour to find a dvd player that worked with the right cables.

Perfect for large family

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights at Playa del Mar in April, and were very pleased. The property listing is accurate and the home was spotless. Perfect layout with bedrooms on all three floors. Rental agents were very helpful. Short drive (or long walk!) to Destin Commons where there are numerous stores including Starbuck's and Panera Bread. Publix grocery is also short drive away and very convenient.
