Lovely home w/ shared hot tub, pool & easy beach access - snowbirds welcome!

Escape for a restful Florida getaway at this Destin vacation rental. Perfect for a family or a group of friends, this home features a shared hot tub, nearby beach access, and ample space for up to 8 guests!

At just 500 yards from Destin Beach, the location of this home is a beachgoer’s dream. Put on some sunscreen, grab the kids, and make it a family fun day at the sugar sand beach. You could also hop aboard a local fishing charter and head out into the Gulf of Mexico for an exciting day of catching redfish, amber jack, grouper, marlin, and more!

Walk through the front door and the first thing you’ll notice is the home’s elegance. Beautiful hardwood floors meet cream-colored walls with thoughtfully chosen décor. There's central air conditioning to keep everyone cool and comfortable.

Settle into the living area’s comfy sectional couch, flip on the TV, and catch up on a favorite cable show. Or, grab a favorite magazine and head to the expansive wraparound deck with generous seating and coastal views.

Have high temperatures made you thirsty? Mix up a fresh mojito, strawberry daiquiri, or other refreshing drink using the kitchen’s blender. Well-stocked with all the cookware and modern appliances you’ll need to whip up a feast, the kitchen is spacious and has ample countertops upon which to place meal ingredients or serve up pre-meal hors d’oeuvres.

Together with your group, sit at the dining table to share meals and stories about your day’s adventures. If the weather calls for it, dine al fresco on the wraparound deck. Walk down a set of stairs to the backyard patio and you’ll notice there are two grills for use – a Green Egg charcoal grill and a gas grill. Grill up fresh tuna steaks, or other local fare, while sitting underneath the shade of palm trees.

When it’s time to retire for the day, get restful sleep in any of the home’s three bedrooms. Able to comfortably accommodate a maximum occupancy of 8 guests. The master suite features a fun safari theme with a king bed, a private en suite with zebra-striped towels and bathmats (as well as a beautiful jetted tub), and giraffe and elephant figurines atop the room's furnishings.

With pastel colors and sea-themed décor, the other two rooms have queen beds and a relaxing coastal feel. There's also a loft area upstairs with another TV and a double-size futon for extra room for everyone to spread out. There is an additional queen-size sleeper sofa as well.

Before you peacefully drift off to sleep, take a soothing dip in the shared pool or hot tub or watch a movie from bed (each bedroom contains a cable-equipped flatscreen TV). You could also pull out your laptop and use the home’s WiFi to plan tomorrow’s adventures or head outside to practice your ground strokes on the shared tennis court.

Wake up refreshed and ready for a full day of activities, which might include dolphin watching along the intracoastal waterway, exploring Choctawhatchee Bay by kayak, rental boat, or atop a stand-up paddle board, or browsing souvenir shops and eclectic eateries at HarborWalk Village. With a variety of museums, historic landmarks, and nearby state parks, Pensacola is a fun day trip at 50 miles west via Highway 98.

Your destination for fun in the sun, sand, and surf along Florida’s Panhandle, a trip to Destin is unlike any other! Book this beautiful Beaches of South Walton vacation rental and start planning your Florida getaway today!

This home felt like home away from home. It was very roomy for my family of six. Was close to the pools and beach. We will return soon to this home.

Floridays was a nice home located an easy walk from either the coastal beach or the bay-side beach. It has plenty of room for 8 adults. We brought a ton of beach and fishing stuff that was easily stored and assembled on the ground floor. The porches were great and there was a crows nest on top for morning contemplation. The community is gated, guards were helpful and because there were homes, not condos dominating the section of accessible beach the beach had plenty of room. It's a very unique area and we will be back.

Love the house and location as it is just a very short walk to the beach. The house was equipped with beach chairs, body boards and a giant float. Absolutely LOVE the beach! My only concern is there were caterpillars everywhere inside and out.

I loved all the different balconies!

Plenty of room......House was very comfortable.

Good location and good size! The fold out couch mattress is not in great condition (warped and bent) and can’t be slept on comfortably. It is also lacking sheets and pillows. This can easily be fixed! It can just be a bit of an issue when you’re trying to accommodate all 10 guests the house claims to sleep

We had originally rented a property in Pensacola Beach but it was negatively affected by the Hurricane coming through the previous night. Vacasa couldn't find anything there but hooked us up with this bigger, better place over in Destin to compensate for our troubles. It was more than sufficient. A lovely property, the kids loved the pool and hot tub, and finding frogs and lizards all over the place. We honestly just stayed nearby, only venturing out for food. Thanks for everything!

The layout is great and the patios are amazing. Great little courtyard too. A loft on the top floor is great for kids to play in and a small rooftop patio was a nice surprise. You are steps from the boardwalk which takes you to the pool and the beach.

This location is great! The pictures do not do this home or property justice! There is so much room and it is only a short walk to the beach. I will add the walk to the beach is GORGEOUS!!! You aren't walking on a side road or through grass--- conveniently you walk on a board walk passed the pool and over a little bridge over what I think was part of the bay. It's perfect! Great area to wash off once you come off the beaxh too!! We loved it!

My fiancé and I rented Floridays to have a place to stay while we got married on the beach in Fort Walton. We weren't quite sure how big the place was because we know that pictures can be deceiving but we were impressed. As you walk in from the front door you have a huge L shaped couch that sits 6 people with cup holders and reclining capabilities. To the left is the eating area with a table that could sit 10 people. The kitchen was well equipped with the laundry room right off the side. There is one bedroom on the main floor that is perfectly designed for a beach house with a porch and an attached bathroom with a beautiful walk-in shower. The living room also has a pull out sleeper sofa. The master bedroom and third bedroom are on the second floor. The third bedroom is nice with its own balcony as well. I would have to say its bathroom isn't quite as nice but does the job but has a better balcony than the first floor room. Now the master bedroom was fantastic. She and five other women were all able to get ready with a woman there doing hair and makeup. The bathroom was a little dated but very spacious and the shower was huge with two shower heads (our first). There was a toilet was in a closed door room along with a huge garden tub with jets. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and there is no need to bring your own pillows as these were perfect. It also has a huge private balcony that wraps around the entire room. The third level had a little loft area that had the futon, a small chair, and tv. There was also a small balcony off the loft area. I can't say anything about the beach access since we didn't go but the neighborhood was nice. Be aware it is near impossible to get more than 3 cars parked at this house and there is no parking on the street. The garage can fit 2 but if you have anything bigger than a Kia you'll be parking at the nearby tennis court area and the driveway will only fit one car. Overall the place far exceeded our expectations and we loved the place. Could have used a better final walk through from the cleaning crew as we didn't have toilet paper, paper towels, or dishwashing detergent (all things they tell you not to bring).

Great home...on 3+ levels...

Very "homey" with personal touches by the owners accenting the rooms. Had all the amenities we could ask for (large washer and dryer, plenty of dishes and cooking utensils, etc.).

Great family room...with a good sized TV...and a larger couch...where we congregated.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were all very nice - with a dual shower and king-sized bed in master.

There are nice porches off of each bedroom - where it was nice to go out and enjoy the sunrise, sunset, breeze, and even fireworks one night.

The central location allowed access to the 2 pools and the beach very easily - and we spent many hours walking on the beaches, and laying by the pools.

Just can't say enough about the good time our family had in this home and property for a week. We would love to go back one day.

Where do I start I was left speechless on how bueatiful and clear the ocean was for my first time experience I'm already trying to plan for my next trip back soon.

Floridays is an awesome rental property that was a great fit for out group of guests. The property is spacious and had more than enough room for everyone to comfortably sleep. The kitchen has all you could need for any meal. The patio and second floor deck are great spaces to relax, converse, or party with everyone. The house is also a 5 minute walk to the beach where you can find other nearby residents and a sand volleyball court!
