Destin’s Best Condos and Beach-House Rentals
Here are our picks for Destin's top condo and beach-house rentals.
The seemingly endless accommodation options can be more than a bit daunting, but will be easier to sift through once you've determined whether a condo or beach house better suits your needs. We've sorted through the masses of rental options to offer you our picks for Destin's top condos and beach-house rentals.
Take advantage of the resort's amenities program, which includes daily beach service (2 chairs and 1 umbrella), as well as discounts on local activities including charter fishing and dolphin cruises. The property is also home to the beachfront Whale's Tale Bar & Grill, as well as the Cabana Cafe, located in the Ariel Dunes apartment towers.
Mediterranea also offers guests a number of amenities, including babysitting services, daily and mid-week housekeeping (for a fee) and bicycle rentals. One of Mediterranea's greatest perks may well be its proximity to Pompano Joe's, the area's most popular haunt for seafood and sunset happy-hour cocktails. Pop across the street to Pompano's in the early evening to enjoy the nightly live music and sip a discount beer -- life is good.
If you're looking to meet the neighbors, spend some time in the community spaces, including a clubhouse, heated pool and hot tub. Guests also have access to 2 private-beach access boardwalks that lead to a splendid stretch of Emerald Coast.
Just how lovely and charming is Seaside? The setting is so picturesque that the movie The Truman Show was primarily filmed here. Charming setting aside, Seaside offers visitors hundreds of colorful vacation rentals to choose from in a variety of architectural styles (imagine everything from postmodern to Victorian). The rentals range from 1-bedroom cottages to 6-bedroom waterfront homes. Visitors staying here are also privy to a community theater and a summer concert series, as well as movies under the stars in the town square.
Seaside also offers all the typical amenities of a beach resort: 6 tennis courts, 3 swimming pools, croquet, walking trails, a fitness center and watersport equipment rentals. Send the little ones to Seaside's Surf and Skim Skool, where they can learn surfing, kayaking, snorkeling and more.
Each property is unique in its details, and some even feature private pools. Other amenities guests can expect include a washer and dryer, kitchens with updated stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops, balconies with Gulf or lake views, outdoor barbecue grills and outdoor showers. The neighborhood is ideally located a short drive from Destin's Harborwalk, the heart of the town, where you'll find the marina, restaurants, bars, shops and amusements for children.
