Why Kids Love It
Children love to watch turtles in the lake behind the villas! There is a walkway behind all the villas. You can also SUP or canoe! The beach is only 50 steps from the villa or take the tunnel under the road with a carriage which is only 5 minute walk or less! Surf lessons, water park, fishing and Harbor close-by, and more! The pool for the villas is a 30 second walk. Barbeque grills, seating for picnics and bike racks are also nearby (the pool).
Literally 50 STEPS to the beach with incredible views! 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 favorites are 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. Scenic Hwy has a large walking and bike path stretching 5+ miles.
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) with several choices, including amazing pizza, sushi and fresh seafood. Pompano Joe's and Capt. Dave's are less than .5 mile.
Less than a 10 minute drive: In front of Sandestin there is an outside mall, Grand Boulevard, area that has lots of great restaurants: Tommy Bahama's, 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. There is also a restaurant 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 across from Sandestin (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.) in mall in front of Walmart. YELP, the app, usually has great choices too.
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!!
For a little futher down the road, but within 35-40 minutes, visit the Gulf Breeze Zoo and the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center where you can meet Sweet Pea, a rescued sea turtle!

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!
See our REVIEWS on or Google (Destiny Beach Villas). We continually rate 5 stars. Our guests LOVE our CLEAN and UPDATED villa. The views aren't too bad either! ;)
