Spacious canalside townhome w/ a large deck, boat slips, & a harbor view

Enjoy a relaxing vacation on the Florida Panhandle at this spacious, canalside townhome, complete with a full kitchen, multiple decks overlooking the water, and convenient boat slips available for use during your stay.

This three-bedroom, two-level townhouse is conveniently close to Harbor Boulevard and a number of options for shopping and dining, as well as being near miles of soft, sandy beaches for endless days of sunbathing and swimming. The home is the largest in the complex and is designed with a one-bedroom lock-out apartment.

The main living area, kitchen, and master bedroom are located on the second floor. The space is bright and airy with high ceilings, tile floors, and plush furnishings, complete with full-length glass doors opening to the balcony. The main living space on the upper level connects to downstairs where you'll find a second bedroom plus a one-bedroom lock-out apartment that is ground level, great for limited-mobility or handicapped guests. This space has a queen bed, sofa bed, refrigerator, full bath, and opens up onto the middle deck area on the canal.

The townhome boasts two boat slips with sand access to the water for paddle craft. The canal is tidal and is perfect for swimming and fishing. Large reds, drum, trout, and jumping mullet populate the canal and you will need heavy tackle to fight them. Manatee and dolphins have appeared in the canal and the manatee will beg to be filled with fresh water from the hose. They are cute but don't feed the dolphins or the Manatees, Florida frowns on that.

The back yard sports a large deck area with a standing fire pit, covered gas grill, picnic table, and of course access to two boat slips and the water. There are solar LEDs that come on at dusk unless you turn on the house lights or overhead chain lights. The solar lights perfectly complement the fire pit for a wonderful Florida evening with fish in the canal and mullet jumping and splashing all night. Grill out and enjoy the stars.

1 queen sofa bed on the lower level + 1 queen sofa bed on the upper level

This beach house was truly wonderful! The placement of this house is so convenient when it comes to going to the beach and going out for any activity. Not to mention the peacefulness of the harbor. The house was kept up very well! Definitely will be booking this place again!!!

Only one thing I have to complain about is the bed in the master bedroom downstairs is very noisy u can't move an arm witjout it making noise but other than that this place is amazing even the neighbors that live there full time are very nice people this will definitely be my permanent vacation home from now on
Manager response:
We apologize that the bed was loud during your stay, Bonnie! We always want our guests to have a relaxing night's sleep and we have replaced the box spring in the bedroom so that it is no longer noisy. We are so happy that you enjoyed the home and we hope to host you again soon!

We enjoyed our stay here. We loved that it has 3 full bathrooms! Feel the location was pretty good! (If you have a car) There are 2 different beaches that are fairly close by. We liked the one with the private gate entrance better. They had a cart that we used to take our items to the beach. Thoughtful welcome gift with deck of cards, bottle opener/cork screw that was a nice touch! The place was very clean and comfortable! Enjoyed sitting on the back small deck watching boats, jumping fish and birds.

As soon as you walk through and see this whole place you will understand you are living like a rockstar! Amazing views, right on the water, and a boat slip! It will make you feel as you arrived and you will not even want to leave!! Just WOW!!! Go ahead and make all your friends jealous and get this place before it is gone!!!

House had lots of privacy for everyone. Dock space worked very well. Never used a bumper because the location gets no traffic at all. Easy out to the bay or ocean. Boating location could not be better. Just remember no trailers on Holiday Isle because of bad HOA rules but, owner offered nice place near launch to keep my trailer for renting his home. Thanks again for a great time or Thanksgiving!

What an amazing house! There was plenty of room for the whole family, and it was close to everything. I hope to be able to stay there the next time I am in Destin. It's a great home away from home.

Really enjoyed this place the only trouble we had was finding it because the address is on another building also.
