This 1200 square foot, fully equipped condo is beautifully furnished and perfect for an any time/any season getaway. Enclosed balcony overlooks the ocean and harbor. Incredible fish and fowl are your neighbors at Dolphin Point! Sleep on a king size Tempur-paedic mattress in the master with a granite bath; or in a private suite with 2 full size beds and jacuzzi. Cable and wireless internet included. HDTVs throughout. Heated pool & tennis courts available. Outdoor grill available to guests on the harbor side. Convenient to everything, with a shuttle that runs to the nearby grocery and miscellaneous stores all over the island. Find out more by searching on Okaloosa shuttle.
Only 2 blocks from a private beach, it's about a 5 minute walk to the white sands and turquoise ocean with an easy crossing at a stop sign. We welcome our European friends, our returning guests, and the many wonderful people we have met in our life and travels. They don't call it Dolphin Point for nothing! It you are there at the right time, you may be blessed by the sight of dolphins in the bay or the ocean. This unit is Sweet and the area is superior.
Beach cart, toys and chairs are provided. My wonderful housekeeper, Whitney, has a list on the fridge of how you can help her out - things like putting dirty towels in the tub and running the dishwasher before you go. In the summer, we often have back to back rentals, so that is a huge help.
If you have a rainy day, you may want to look into the armament museum in nearby Ft Walton beach. It's free, and fascinating in many different ways.
I recommend The Beachcomber app to find out about local music and events. Do a search on Beachcomber Destin to get the address.
Fly in to VPS at Fort Walton Beach (about 1/2 hour away), with cab service available for around $60. Alternatively, fly in to PNS (Pensacola) and take a leisurely drive down the coast (about an hour) in your rental car. Driving from our home base in Cincinnati usually takes us about 13 hours.
This is our vacation home, and you will have the place to yourselves. Excellent shopping and good foods are close enough so you never have to fight the Destin traffic.
Other Things to Note
Due to some bad experiences in the past I will not rent to guests under 25, or guests with children under 12 unless you have rented with me before. Unfortunately, the complex does not permit dogs, other than those belonging to owners. No fishing is permitted from the docks.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It's a fairly quiet group, and many of the owners are full-time residents.
This place is very special to us and we trust that you will treat it well. Some people ask about smoking. We prefer you do not.
The condo was as described in a quiet building easily accessible to restaurants and shopping places, with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed our stay even if the weather was very cold (for us anyway)!
I would love to visit this condo every year if possible. We came down for a wedding and everyone else stayed at a over priced hotel and once the heard about what i called the retreat lol they all were in regret. The discription is very accurate and the pictures don't do it justice. I love the glass patio area, this made for a very relaxing evening. Kathleen has everything you will ever need down to the tea kettle for your tea. She was available at the time we arrived till we left as well as the young lady who comes in after u leave to clean. It is very comfortable and you will never want to stay at a hotel in Destin again.
The apartment was exactly as described. A very comfortable experience for our little family. Near to dining and the beach, which is exactly what you need in destin! The place was clean and comfy. Kate was available to answer all of our questions throughout the stay. Would definitely stay here again.
This is our second time to use this property because it is such a great deal and Kathleen, the host has been so helpful in making sure our stay went well. The condo is well stocked with beach supplies which makes it easy to use the beach without bringing those extra items with you. The surrounding area has lots to do with a great selection of restaurants. We are already planning our next trip back to this wonderful place.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The waterfront view was spectacular, and we loved becoming Parrotheads for a week. Pros: the beds were very comfortable; the sound system was impressive; the kitchen was furnished; the beach was private; and the layout of the condo was homey, and felt much roomier from all the mirrors. Cons: the walk to the beach was really 3 blocks, not 1.5; and we had two, albeit atypical, situations of inspectors and repairmen coming into the condo unannounced. All in all, fantastic locale, especially for the price. The walk wasn't a big deal, but we did feel a bit mislead. The unannounced entries (our door was locked, by the way) messed with our peace of mind a bit, but I can't imagine that happening again to anyone else.
The listing was completely accurate yet could not capture the calm and refreshing environment we discovered. The condo is lovely, quiet and in a peaceful neighborhood a short walk to the beach. And what a beach! Clean, private, spacious and beautiful. We particularly enjoyed the enclosed balcony with a great view; perfect for reading, relaxing and dozing. Great TV and sound. Good coffee maker and well appointed kitchen. The bedroom was quiet and the Tempurpedic bed was large and comfortable. The whole condo was spotless, and the decor made it a cool, inviting place to return to each day. Located close to great restaurants and shopping. We would love to go back!
