The gourmet chef will come out in all the cooks of the party in this spacious well designed custom stainless steel and granite kitchen. Plus, there are two outdoor natural gas kitchens provided for those who love to grill. If you don't cook, sit back and watch the 50' HD flat screen TV while enjoying your family as they prepare the vacation meals. If it is a cool night, turn on the natural gas fire place to take the chill off. Or wrap up with a blanket and retire to the deck for the beautiful sunsets or sunrises. Or, maybe you want to meditate by the marine life presented in the custom built salt water aquarium.
The second floor also offers two king bedrooms that can be accessed by an elevator or beautiful gently curved spiral stone staircase.

A small trundle bedroom for your little ones is provided off the master.
Why stress yourself figuring out what you'll do when vacationing in Destin. Provided for your convenience is a street legal golf cart to drive to The Crab Trap and our public beach access. You can walk, but you must cross under the Destiny East tunnel as this home is located on the north side of Scenic Highway 98. But, wow! The golf cart provides a fun way to get around this beautiful beach town. Regardless, once you access the beach, you will discover two beach set ups ready to accommodate your family and friends on our beautiful Emerald Coast. Want a snack, drink, or want to cool off, slip up to The Crab Trap that also offers local fresh catch meals, drink of your desire, public facilities and outdoor showers.
Beach lovers can soak up the sun or glide through our warm waters. After a full day on our sandy white sugar beaches and the emerald green waters of Destin, a day of golf or tennis, welcome to our world by relaxing in your own home away from home. This Destiny East vacation rental home has it all! Golfing is close by for those who must play when on vacation.
Chill out by your own private pool, warm up in the sun or spa, or sit on one of the three decks to feel the breezes of The Gulf of Mexico. Or, if you have energy after a relaxing day, take a short stroll to The Crab Trap, Captain Dave's or Pompano Joe's for dinner, drink, and the beautiful views. Let Over the Top relax your body and release your worries. No stress and plenty of pleasure!...Read more
Left on 12/21/2013 for a stay in November 2013 | Disappointed familyReviewed Dec 21, 2013Stayed Nov 2013
My family just recently stayed in this home over the Thanksgiving week. We paid several thousand dollars to stay there for the week. Have to say, it was not worth it. 1st, the management company was suppose to meet us within the 1st 24hrs, they didn't. Despite the $300 cleaning fee, the house wasn't completely clean and the cleaning crew had to come out. The master bedroom on the 3rd floor didn't have heat and we were cold the 1st two nights. The "5th bedroom" really isn't a true bedroom. It's attached to the master bedroom, so we spent a week with our teenage children in our master suite. (not so relaxing). The jetted tub's dry cycle in the master suite went off at 1 am for the 1st two nights and work us up both nights as we struggled to find out how to turn it off. The fireplace's wall switches didn't work and we had to turn them on manually under the grate at the bottom. When it rained, the window's leaked and flooded into the family room. It has 3 grills, only 1 worked and it was on the bottom level, so you had to go all the way down stairs to grill. The ice maker in the basement with the bar had mold in it. The 2 blenders didn't work. The golf cart had expired plates so it wasn't street legal. The pool wasn't cleaned on schedule and the water levels dropped so it didn't heat, despite paying extra to have it heated. We found a cockroach in the pantry with our food. The sink in one of the bedrooms leaked and we had to put a bowl under it. The sound system for surround sound and the TVs were complicated and we struggled all week getting them to work. The elevator was locked and could not be used. Have I said enough? It really was not a relaxing week. Yes, after we complained enough, maintenance did come out multiple times, but who wants to spend their "vacation" like that? There are hundreds of houses in Destin to choose from. I would personally encourage you to find another one.
