Unique Benefits

We absolutely LOVE Destin and bought this villa in 2004 so we would always have a beach home for our large extended family. We live only one hour away and manage the villa ourselves. We pride ourselves on personal service and treat our renters how we would want to be treated. Our villa is exactly how we would want a vacation rental to be if we were renting it ourselves - clean, casual, updated and FUN! Check out our Facebook page with over 550 Likes: Destiny Beach Villas.

Why Kids Love It

Children love to fish and watch turtles in the lake behind the villas! The beach is only 50 steps from the villa or take the tunnel under the road with a carriage - 5 minute walk or less! Surf lessons, water park, and Harbor close-by, and more!

Area Information

The villa is centrally located in Destin near the Destin Commons with the new Whole Foods, the Silver Sands large Outlet mall, Big Kahuns's water park, Regatta Bay and Kelly Plantation golf courses and marinas. Golf! Shopping! Day Spas! Amusement Parks! Water Parks! We have it all! Best walking on the 10 foot running/biking path along Scenic Highway 98 to many restaurants and more: SUP/Paddleboard and Surfing School nearby.

Attractions Within Walking Distance

Walk to over a dozen restaurants! Our favorite is less than one half mile, an easy walk! We supply you with all the things to do in our IBrochure. Just ask for it or see our website.

Favorite Places To Eat

There are some great restaurants close by! The Crabtrap across from the Villa has great food and there is a bar and playground in the back on the beach. We always make it here our first night! You can also walk to some other of our favorites including Camille’s (1.4 miles) and Henderson Beach Inn (1.7 miles). In front of Sandestin there is an outside mall, Grand Boulevard, area that has lots of great restaurants: Cantina Laredo, Fleming’s Steakhouse, PF Chang’s, Emeril’s and more. (Across from Lily Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines) Make reservations…the wait can be long. Also in the back of Sandestin, Bay Towne is fun for a night out. 790 on the Gulf located in the Beachwalk Condo building on Scenic Hwy just west of the villa (also walkable) is very good - a local's favorite. If you go, try to go at sunset and sit outside! Some other favorite restaurants are Mimmo's Italian, Wine World and Craft Bar in the Publix shopping area and also in Sandestin's Publix shopping area. Tuscany in front of Destiny East (ultimate favorite especially for the happy hour specials), Dewey Destin's near the Harbor - or if you are brave enough, the Calhoun Street location located on a dock and Jim and Nick's Barbecue by Home Depot. Also La Familia (Italian seafood, etc.) at the Destin Commons. YELP, the app, usually has great choices too.

Inside Scoop

GO TO Seaside one day for the best mojitos at happy hour! (where the Truman Show was filmed)

The Mattie Kelly Cultural Arts Center has weekly live concerts (located near Home Depot in Destin) every Thursday night. Really great bands play!

The Mattie Kelly Arts Center in Niceville, Florida, has Broadway plays and musicals. Check the website for schedule. It is located at the Northwest Florida State College campus. ALSO, a must see is the Art Museum. Many exhibits including their very own collection of over 90 original Salvador Dali paintings! AMAZING!!

Laura and Gregg Kirby, Owners

Why this property? We have such great views from our villa. So many of our guests that have stayed multiple times in the villas say this is their favorite. Over 60% of our renters are repeat renters!

Destin has SO MUCH to do! The beaches are incredible - pure white sand and the Gulf is clear and beautiful! We love to walk to restaurants close by. There is a 10 foot walking, running, biking path that runs along the Scenic Hwy 98 for over 6 miles. You can ride to the Henderson Beach State Park or the Outlet Mall!
