And so you don’t get hungry or thirsty while lounging on the beach, you can pack up food and beverages and take them with you to the beach —you’ll have a rolling cooler, cooler bags, ice packs, and a rolling beach cart. Don’t worry about having to pack beach towels in your suitcase or bringing beach equipment, we have everything you need —12 beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, floats, float pump and beach games. For your convenience, we even include 2 beach chairs and an umbrella setup on the beach waiting for you each day (seasonal). From our 2 private beaches, you can spot dolphins playing in the water, fish off the East Jetty, snorkel and see sea turtles, watch boats go in and out of the harbor and view the spectacular weekly harbor fireworks show (seasonal).

If you're too tired to cook, order a Charcuterie board from our personal friend Shelli or there’s a personal chef or hibachi chef we recommend that can come on the property and cook for you. Or we can recommend numerous world-class restaurants nearby.

Left anything at home? Need to go shopping? We are conveniently located with a Target, Winn Dixie, and Walgreens only a mile away directly across Hwy 98.

You’ll also enjoy the amenities our luxury neighborhood has to offer—take a dip in our 2 pools (one is heated seasonally) or relax in the hot tub, bird watch at our two neighborhood lakes, play shuffleboard or a game of basketball, tennis or pickle ball.

Looking for water activities?
We are near Destin Harbor where you’ll find numerous fishing charters, dolphin, Crab Island and sunset boat excursions, jet ski rentals, parasailing, paddle boarding, scuba diving and much more!

Serenity By The Shore Hosted by Macey Hart

Member since 2024

About the owner: Hi! I'm a native Texan, wife, boy mom, traveller, marketing professional & entrepreneur. I love the beach and the mountains, but the peace of God’s presence when I’m near water draws me more to the ocean.

The travel bug is in my genes as my parents always took our family on 2 week summer vacations to resorts in Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii and we travelled all over the US. Some of my favorite places I’ve travelled to are Carmel, CA; San Diego, CA; Boston, MA; Austin, Tx & the Hill County in Texas; & I feel like Princeville Kauai, Hawaii is Heaven on earth. My family and I also love cruising —we’ve probably done 10 cruises to the Caribbean, then we did two long cruises to the Mediterranean and loved stopping to explore the ancient cities. My grandparents are from Germany, so when I visit there I feel at home in Saxony. I’ve lived in Midtown NYC and worked for the home office of a major retailer —I absolutely love the excitement and energy of the city.

I'm excited to become a Host & share with you our second home in Destin. I feel like I know alot about what vacationers want and need with all the traveling I’ve done in my lifetime. I mainly want our guests to experience a special and memorable vacation. And I will do all that I can to make that happen. We were blessed to find this location --it's a hidden gem in Destin south of the harbor. Our house is in the exclusive Destin Pointe neighborhood which is a luxury gated community on Holiday Isle with two private beaches. Not many know about this little slice of Heaven! On top of the location, we fell in love with the house too--it's beautiful & fully renovated! We are excited to share our "Serenity by the Shore" with you, your family and friends! I hope you give us the opportunity to host you as we start out as a new listing managing our own property here on airbnb. And we hope to fulfill your dream vacation.

Guestbook comments from the host:

What an amazing week at Serenity by the Shore! We loved the location & that we could easily get to the beaches & pools. The home had everything that we needed, was beautifully decorated and was extremely clean! Macey was extremely responsive & her communication made the entire process so easy.


Dec 2023

The house was beautifully decorated and very well equipped with everything you would need for the perfect family vacation! They definitely though of everything! The game room was a big hit with everyone also!


Aug 2023

This house was absolutely beautiful!!! The hosts went above and beyond to make our stay extra special!


Jul 2023

Absolutely stunning home equipped with anything a family could possibly need! This home-owner has left no stone unturned as it relates to a home away from home. For our group, the downstairs game room was a “game changer” We have very active twin grandsons and this game room was utilized night and day during downtime from the beautiful beach and pools! For sure a FIVE star experience.


Jul 2023

Serenity By The Shore, hosted by Macey, is an absolute gem! This beach house offers an idyllic retreat right by the boardwalk entrance, making it the perfect destination for a dreamy beach vacation. Macey's attention to detail is exceptional. The fully stocked kitchen exceeded our expectations, allowing us to effortlessly prepare delicious meals. The thoughtfully provided amenities, including the ping pong and foosball tables in the garage, added an extra layer of fun to our stay. It's evident that Macey goes above and beyond to ensure her guests have a remarkable experience. The location is a true highlight. Being just steps away from the boardwalk entrance made it incredibly convenient to access the beach and explore the vibrant surroundings. Whether we wanted to soak up the sun or take a leisurely stroll along the shore, everything was within easy reach. The house itself exudes a serene ambiance, living up to its name. The spacious and well-designed interior provided ample room for our family ensuring everyone had their own space and privacy. The attention to comfort and style was evident in every corner of the house. Furthermore, Macey's hospitality was unparalleled. From the moment we arrived, she made us feel warmly welcomed, offering excellent recommendations for nearby restaurants and attractions. Her responsiveness and genuine care for our enjoyment made our stay even more memorable. We can't wait to return!!

Soothing Serenity

Our girls trip was a joy and truly made extra special by our host's attention to every detail in her home! Macey has thought of everything and her design of her home is gorgeous - luxurious linens and cozy bedding, beautiful artwork throughout and lovely elements around every turn. I appreciated that each of the bedrooms had special corners to relax and unwind and you can step out onto the balconies if you want to feel the refreshing coastal breeze. Definitely can't wait to come back!

Paradise!

Serenity by the Shore is absolutely the best vacation rental I’ve ever been in. The house is stunning, the view from the balcony is mesmerizing and the location is perfect to get to restaurants and shopping. Macey has done a wonderful job decorating every inch of this fabulous beach house and has made sure all guests will feel welcome with all the extras she has provided. We enjoyed the short stroll to the pool and the beach where we had chairs and an umbrella to enjoy white sands and the beautiful blue/ aqua water. If you’re lucky enough to be there for fireworks, the private beach in Destin Pointe is an amazing spot to view them. You will not be disappointed with this rental, I highly recommend Serenity by the Shore for your vacation! We will definitely be back.

The best word to describe this home is Dreamy!

Serenity by the Shore at Destin Pointe is beautifully decorated and it is definitely serene. I’ve rented many beach houses over the years and this one is by far the best. The owners have thoughtfully supplied everything that you might need during your stay at the beach. I love the organization and how everything is labeled in the kitchen so that it isn’t a guessing game trying to find things. If you have any questions about the house or a location in Destin the owner is amazing and is so helpful with recommendations. I love Serenity by the Shore and can’t to go back with my family!
