Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: Our Destin Home is family owned by parent, son & daughter-in-law.
We take great pride in the vaction home, we are constantly upgrading, adding new amenities, and just trying to make the guest experience that much better.
We had always vacationed in Destin and loved the area and after almost 2 decades absence from Destin we came back and decided to purchase this wonderful & huge beach home in 2016.

Why this property? We purchased this beach home because of all the great attributes it has, the fabulous view, the proximity to the beach, the private martini pool, or just the sheer size so large families can vacation together.

This vacation home has so much to offer and we are finding more ways everyday to bring out the best for our guests stays!

Guestbook comments from the owner:

What a gorgeous house to vacation in. Only a couple minute walk to the beach too. There were plenty of towels (bath and beach) for all to use. The house was very clean and comfortable. My girls and I really enjoyed using the bikes. The pool/hot tub was nice to go to after being at the beach all day. The upper deck was a great location to lay out and just enjoy the ocean breeze. I love the open concept of the house, so while working in the kitchen we can still visit with loved ones in the other room.

Diamond in The Reef

When we first pulled up to the house we were amazed how beautiful the house was. Inside the house, wow, it was amazing. We stayed on the top floor and we had access to the top deck and the bottom as well which was a plus for us. The bottom had a pool big enough to lounge in and having small kids with us worked out well for us. The house also came with bicycles and our older children made good use of it. The neighborhood was nice for bike rides. The beach is literally a 5-7 mins walk from the house. Can’t say enough about this beach house. It is well worth it. My family and I plan on returning to the house in the near future. If anyone is looking for a beach house I highly recommend The Diamond in The Reef. Top floor had a full kitchen each room had its own tv there was plenty of space for us and we had a total of 8. We had a wonderful time at the house and only wish we had more time to spend there.

Perfect Beach View Home

The location is amazing--just a short walk to the beach! The pool is awesome for relaxing after a day in the sun. The kitchen has so much storage and has all of the tools you would need. Very clean and family-friendly spaces! The access to bikes was great to get a little exercise in while soaking up all the views. My favorite part was the deck with lounge chairs to tan on! We will definitely visit again!

A Diamond in Destin!!

Diamond in the Reef is a true gem! Gorgeous, well-maintained and beautifully decorated home, right in the heart of Destin. This property can easily accommodate a very large group, yet is also warm and inviting for only a few. This place truly offers everything you could possibly want, and the location right across from the beach can’t be beat! The owners obviously care about the comfort of their guests and have outfitted this place with all that you need to feel right at home. Great shopping, dining and nightlife only minutes away, but nothing better than visiting one of the many local seafood markets and preparing a great meal at home to enjoy in the spacious kitchen or out on the second floor terrace, enjoying the ocean breeze! Unwinding in the martini pool after a long day at the beach is also a treat! Our group truly enjoyed our stay and we can’t wait for our next visit!

Excellent for large group

If you have a large group traveling to the area, this is an ideal location. Easy walk to beach, even with some of the construction across the way. Beautiful views from 2nd floor balcony. Although upstairs balcony and outdoor furniture could use some repair/replacement, it was ideal for our family. 2nd floor is especially spacious. Pool is small, but great for young kids and adult who want to relax out of the sun!
