D. Alexander has taken necessary steps during the COVID-19 outbreak to ensure you can work, relax, and stay safe while practicing social distancing:
• Homes are sanitized on all touchable surfaces with Lysol and Clorox. Our linen and towel cleaning is processed in steam injected water at 170 degrees at a commercial laundry facility with very strong bleach at 20% chlorine. These procedures ensure the cleanest and most sanitary environment.
• Independent Keyless Entry allows you to maintain isolation and social distancing as recommended by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) by gaining access to the home without contact with staff at check in.
Need a break from the sun? The cozy living spaces are perfect for watching TV or curling up with your favorite book.
In the main house, you’ll find a comfy living room with two large couches and a fireplace on the main floor. While you certainly won’t need the fireplace in the summer, it’s nice to have on a cool winter evening.
The main house also has a smaller sitting room at the front of the house with another sofa and beautiful natural light.
When it comes to entertainment, you’ll find smart HDTVs with access to streaming services using your own logins. The living room also has a cool Polycade arcade game console (pay to play at a small fee), which is always a favorite among the younger travelers!
--KITCHEN & DINING--
Between all the excitement of beaches, shopping, and amusement parks, you’re bound to work up an appetite! This property includes not one, but TWO full kitchens - one in the main house and one in the carriage house.
In the main house, the upgraded kitchen features new stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove, oven, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and toaster. The cabinets are stocked with cookware, dishes, and glasses, and we treat you to eco-friendly, 3-can welcome pack of tasty WineSociety California Wine.
The carriage house has an eat-in kitchen with a dining table for 4, which is ideal for a quick breakfast or a snack after a dip in the pool.
Dine in style in the main home’s dining room, which seats at least 8. Or, head outside to the back patio or an upstairs balcony for a meal with a side of gulf breezes.
The main house and carriage house combined can comfortably sleep up to 21 guests in 7 private bedrooms and additional beds in the bunk room. Every bed features a new pillow-top mattresses, hypoallergenic pillows, and super soft Mascioni sheets. We take sleep seriously!
• Master Bedroom: 1 king bed, queen-size sleeper sofa, balcony, sitting area with fireplace
• Bedroom 2: 3 twin beds
• Bedroom 3: 1 king bed
• Bedroom 4: 1 king bed
• Bedroom 5: 1 queen bed, queen-size sleeper sofa
• Bedroom 6: twin bunk beds
• Bedroom 7: 2 queen beds
Privacy please! The property contains a total of 6 full bathrooms and 1 half bath. Every bathroom features modern fixtures and custom tile in the showers. Bathroom amenities include (MALIN+GOETZ) toiletries (made in the USA with natural ingredients), soft and absorbent cotton towels, and hair dryers.
Want to get a head start on your post-trip laundry? You’ll find a washer and dryer in the main house.
There’s plenty of places to soak up the Florida sun and gulf breezes without even leaving the property. Just behind the main house is a charming back patio with a private pool, BBQ, and sun loungers. With a private outdoor space that’s so convenient, you might not even want to go to the beach!
On the upper floors of both the main house and the carriage house, wraparound balconies provide nice places to sit and breathe in the salty air as you drink your morning coffee or wind down with a sunset cocktail.
--ESSENTIALS & SECURITY--
The entire home is equipped with fast WiFi and air conditioning, so you’ll always be cool and connected. We understand the importance of speedy and stable internet, so we’ve installed a Mesh Router to deliver a super-strong signal.
Parking is available for 3 vehicles, with 2 in the driveway and 1 in the garage, depending on size. While an SUV will fit just fine, please note that RVs and trailers will not.
Please contact us if you have any questions about our home or the Destin area in general. We hope to host you soon!
Shopping around? We invite you to explore our 5-star collection. Please view our profile to see other listings or contact us for additional information.
Check-in is quick and easy. Before arrival, we’ll provide a code for keyless entry.
During your stay, you will have complete and exclusive access to the entire property, including the private pool, patio, and balconies.
Interaction with Guests:
We’ll give you all the privacy you need during your stay. If you need anything, we’re available 24/7 by phone, text, email, or the app you booked with.
This home sits in a peaceful Destin neighborhood just steps from the beach and a short drive from restaurants and shopping. It’s the perfect balance of peace and quiet while being close to everything.
Of course, you won’t want to miss the beach, but you may want to add some more Destin area highlights to your itinerary:
• Henderson Beach State Park (12-minute walk) - Gorgeous beachfront park with a playground, boardwalk, picnic areas, and walking trails
• Indian Bayou Golf & Country Club (7-minute drive) - 27-hole course next to the water
• Crystal Shores (6-minute drive) - Chic outdoor retail center with stylish boutiques and dining

• The Track (6-minute drive) - High-energy amusement park with bumper cars, go-karts, and more
• Big Kahuna’s Water & Adventure Park (7-minute drive) - Huge water park with waterslides and a lazy river
Although you might be tempted to grill next to the pool every day, we do recommend trying at least one of Destin’s best restaurants:
• Camille's at Crystal Beach (5-minute walk) - Laid-back spot for local seafood and sushi
• First Watch (5-minute drive) - Cheery breakfast joint famous for eggs
• The Craft Bar (4-minute drive) - Modern gastropub with a big selection of beer
• Half Shell Oyster House (4-minute drive) - Upscale seafood with a Southern twist
In addition to the fun stuff, this home is also within a short drive of all the essentials.
• Closest supermarket: Publix Super Market at Paradise Key (5-minute drive)
• Closest liquor store: Publix Liquors at Paradise Key (5-minute drive)
• Closest coffee shop: Starbucks (3-minute drive or 11-minute walk)
• Closest pharmacy: Walgreens (4-minute drive)
• Closest bank: Wells Fargo Bank (4-minute drive)
We’re always happy to assist with tour bookings or any other area recommendations.
Driving is the best way to get around the Panhandle area, but a car isn’t necessary for trips to the beach, which is just 5-6 minutes away on foot or a 2-minute golf cart ride. Stores and restaurants in the area typically have free and plentiful parking, but be mindful that some beach parking lots do charge fees.
Ready to ride in style? Leave the car behind and cruise around town in a brand new 6-seater electric golf cart, which we can arrange for rental. Uber, Lyft, and taxi service are also readily available.
Flying into the Panhandle area? Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS) is a 30-minute drive from the home and Destin Executive Airport (DTS) is a 9-minute drive away.

About the owner: Hi, Alex and the D. Alexander Family here.
We’re destination enthusiasts who are passionate about creating memorable l experiences. Through countless travel experiences, we discovered that adventure, exploration, and discovery with friends and family significantly improves when homes are designed and tailored to groups and households. We found that the consistencies and high standards we often saw in hotels were huge factors in the enjoyment of any getaway, vacation, extended retreat, or your second home (or as we like to say - to live, play and work).
Simply put, we realized traditional vacation homes often lacked the standards of a hotel that travelers love. Enter the creation of D. Alexander: a boutique hospitality brand that delivers unrivaled quality, consistency and value to Group Destination Seekers.
We strive to deliver unparalleled standards across our vibrant portfolio of Destination Homes, all focused on providing our guests with quality, consistency and value throughout their stay. Guests know what they are getting. The pictures and details you find online are what you see when you walk into the home.
High quality products where they count the most. You can expect to find spa-quality care products, Italian luxury linens, bedding, and towels, and high-end mattresses in each of our homes.
Reliable technology. You can count on having strong and consistent WiFi, smart locks, and smart TVs when booking a D. Alexander Destination Home™.
We created the D. Alexander home-hotel collection to raise the bar in the short-term rental industry and believe in providing luxury and standards within the comforts of a home.
Enjoy your stay!
Alex and the D. Alexander Family
