Leave your worries behind and set your destination to the heading of ‘beach vacation’ via The Boathouse. Set less than a mile south from the popular Destin Commons, just west of Hurricane Lanes family entertainment center, and two blocks north of the Gulf of Mexico– The Boathouse will point the way to all that Destin has to show her visitors.
This spacious, three-story Destin vacation rental offers a nautical escape with a charming sailboat and lighthouse décor in each room. It’s a wonderful place to come home to after a fun-filled day at Big Kahuna’s water park, playing golf at a nearby pristine course or sun bathing on the... sugar-white sand down the street. Toss the ball around on the lush lawn in the backyard edged by a white picket fence then hop in the pool and fire up the grill for a family cookout. Talk about old times on the third floor balcony overlooking the colorful houses of Crystal Beach or create new memories by whipping up a new recipe in the fully- stocked kitchen.
Whatever you choose, The Boathouse will be the wind behind your sails on your next Destin adventure.

the house is a nice house,the only draw back is, it is on a very busy street,there is a bush at the end of the driveway that blocks your vision when backing onto the street.the pool had a lot of black algae,it also has leak at the heater for the pool. Read more
Response from Newman-Dailey Resort Properties - 08/29/2013
Record breaking amounts of rain during this guests' stay caused problems with all small pools. Unfortunately, nothing could be done to take care of pool issues until the rain subsided.

One of best vacation rentals in 20 years we've been visiting Des
Left on 12/06/2012 for a stay in November 2012 | Job Fairy and her People
Two bedrooms downstairs are identical in size, with one bath between them and it was perfect. Plenty of seating space in living room, huge TV for big Ole Miss/Mississippi State game, wonderful master suite on second floor with tons of space, and great outdoor seating areas on all three floors. We could have easily slept 6 more people, and anyone with children will love the twin beds at the top of the second-floor stairs. The third-floor loft area is also great for kids or for someone who needs to work away from everyone else on their computer. And proximity to everything was about as perfect as you could get. We'll be back!
fun was had by all! We love the Boathouse & Newman Dailey
Left on 07/18/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Jan Motlow
we always use Newman-Dailey each year for a week long stay in Destin since 2004. We have alway recv'd excellant customer service. The air stopped working the second night and the next day someone came by 10:30 and fixed the problem. The dryer quit working and and someone came the next day and was not able to fix it so a new one was delivered by late thursday even though we were without a dryer they dropped off clean towels and offered to do our laundry which was very nice/ The man who delivered the dryer hit my car and with the dryer and failed to mention it me or my husband I tried not to let this upset my vacation, and the lawn service came to mow the lawn and we had to leave the pool area and go inside for safety reasons-other than those 4 issues we had we do love staying at the Boathouse and we like giving using Newman-Dailey for their attention to customer service. The employees at Newman are always friendly and treat me as if we have been friends for a long time I like the personal treatment I receive when they call or send emails you could stay some place else for less - but you get what you pay for!! See you guys summer of 2013!

Pretty Good Stay
Left on 07/14/2010 for a stay in July 2010 | Watkins & Henson Families
We enjoyed the Boathouse. It is close to the beach and in a nice area of Destin. Inside, the house was nice and clean but I wasn't overly impressed with the outdoors. The outdoor furniture by the pool was a bit lacking. Some of the umbrellas were broken and the furniture was really old. The grass was also not mowed in the backyard and we were hoping that would be a fun place for the kids to play in an enclosed area. I asked the office to mow it at the beginning of our stay and when we left a week later, it still hadn't been mowed. It was disappointing service for the amount of money we paid.
Other than that, the house is nice and comfortably fit two families. The kids loved the house, especially the loft area. I agree with other reviewers that the third floor is too hot to really enjoy. The master bedroom and closet are great!
Overall, we had a lot of fun, I just wish that my request about the lawn had been taken care of.
A relaxing family Christmas on the beach
Left on 01/22/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | boatgirl
This is a beautiful home will all the amenities within a short walk from the ocean. We received excellent service. The door code we were given did not work and someone was there within 15 minutes to solve the problem. Everything we needed was within a short walking distance; including the beach, shopping, a wide variety of restaurants and a grocery store. I highly recommend the Boathouse to any family or group looking for a home away from home. We had an excellent vaction and a beautiful Christmas on the beach.

My family spent the week of July 18th in the Boathouse and it was a wonderful place to stay . We have used Newman-Dailey for the past 8 years and all of their rental properties are excellent. We always rent a house with a private pool, which is wonderful. We spent several hours a day in the pool. I would recommend this house to anyone children.

It was a great week. Weather was hot but didn't keep us from having one of our best vacations ever. The Newman-Dailey people couldn't have been more nice or more helpful. There was a storm that came through Thursday night and knocked out our A/C. It was fixed the next day and they had to replace the power supply to the A/C and the compressor. Can't wait to go back to Destin, we were in walking distance of the beach and Destin Commons. We are telling everyone how nice, clean and beautiful the house was.
TN Titans Destin vacation '09
Left on 06/24/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | Titans fan
House itself was clean & well maintained, the dishwasher seemed 2wash dishes extremely long and
3rd floor was not really used very much ,not much cool air up there, the house is near the beach
and we enjoyed our vacation this time like the previous years we visited Destin , we 'll be back again next year but we always want to try different homes each time we go there.
The check-n personnel at the main office was also very accommodating (we arrived 15 mins after 5pm closing . Thanks FL for another memorable vacation.
