1BR/1BA/Sleeps 6, Corner Unit, Second Floor, Across Street From Beach

Fondly nicknamed, “Mermaid Pointe,” enjoy your vacation with great peek-a-boo views of the gorgeous Emerald Coast waters. This condo has been newly renovated with fresh paint, all new furniture and decor. Mermaid Pointe is right across the street from the beach, in the heart of Destin in Crystal Beach, close to the Destin Commons shopping center, Mid-Bay bridge, and plenty of restaurants to suit any taste. It’s right on Scenic Highway 98, where you can be close to everything, but enjoy a quiet, secluded feel, and a popular walking/bike path, for when you don’t have your toes in the sand. The condo features a numeric lock on the front door, so you can walk across the street to the beach with nothing but your swimsuit and towel; not a worry in the world about keeping up with keys and valuables. You will also be within walking distance of Camille's Sidewalk Cafe, Cissy’s Scenic 98 Café, the Henderson Resort and Spa, Primrose, and the Henderson Beachside Inn, along with many other fabulous restaurants within easy biking or driving distance. Don't take my word for it, our reviews say it all! This review said it best, and reflects our ultimate goals as owners: "This is hands down the best experience I've ever had. The location of this property is perfect and the condo was really special. We felt like we were staying with friends that had personal touches of a home more than a rental."

Mermaid Pointe is a second-story end unit/corner condo in a low-rise complex (only two stories), giving it a spacious and separate feel. It is a one bedroom (with a queen-sized bed), one bath home that sleeps up to 6 with twin-sized nautical hallway bunk beds and a queen-sized pullout sofa in the living room.

This is your comfortable home away from home with a fabulous porch swing illuminated by a lantern-light chandelier, for either daytime reading, nighttime lounging, or just listening to the waves and dozing off. You can enjoy having meals on the patio, with a table and seating for three.

The Master bedroom boasts a BEDSIDE coffee station (which can be adjusted to an automatic setting to serve as a pleasant, aromatic, alarm clock!) and each side of the bed has their own reading lantern. This used to be my full-time home, so there's extra space for clothes, as the bed has drawers underneath. Hallway bunks offer privacy through a train-compartment style curtain, perfect for kids to have their own “fort,” or other guests who have the option to shut out extra light at anytime of day. Spend the evening on the pull-out couch with both French doors open on the patio to hear those waves rolling you to sleep all night long. The bathroom comes stocked with beach towels and other linens to accommodate six guests. Mermaid Pointe also comes stocked with four beach chairs, pool toys, a golf-size umbrella, and an apron (just in case!). Internet is also included along with two smart TVs, which feature a wide range of available entertainment. The unit has been upgraded with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, washer and dryer, crown molding, the softest cooling microfiber and jersey knit sheets, comfortable foam mattress toppers in the master bedroom & bottom bunk, three luxurious bath-sheet sized towels (the rest are standard size), and modern furnishings, for a clean look and feel.

The Caribbean Dunes complex can make your vacation complete with a seasonally heated pool, hot tub, clubhouse, outdoor grills, and proximity to two public beach accesses. It’s a great location for couples and families to get away. Since it is a low-rise condo on the quiet side of Scenic 98, it’s bound to prove for a perfectly relaxing Destin vacation.

The owners are local, so if anything happens, we are just a phone call away to give you personalized attention, should the need arise.

**Returning guests who show trustworthy and cleanly use of the condo and leave a good review will receive deep discounts on their next stays. :) WE LOVE OUR RETURNING GUESTS!! If you plan to return to Destin, this is the condo for you!

Mermaid Pointe also comes stocked with four beach chairs, pool toys, a golf-size umbrella, and an apron (just in case!).

Vacation    Apr 01, 2022

Me and my 4 and 11 year old stayed here for the week. It was clean, wonderful location(beach literally across the street), the keyless entry was awesome and the pictures are exactly what you get! The owner checked in with us and answered any questions quickly! I highly recommend this place.

Mermaid Point was on point!    Apr 01, 2022

review star

Our family stayed here for a little under a week. Our 5yr wedding anniversary coincided with our girls spring break so we decided to turn it into a family trip. My husband is a cancer survivor so I'm extremely big on cleanliness. This place was extremely clean and had everything we needed to keep it that way. It also had all the technology we needed to entertain two very busy mini mermaids when we were preparing for the beach. The location is beyond excellent! The beach is only steps away and if you need a change of pace try the pool or jacuzzi. Anything you need is just around the corner and the communication with the owners was A+. Ms. Jessica and her husband stayed in contact with us the entire time making sure we had everything we need. Our girls even participated in a cute mermaid hunt game Jessica offers to guests. I will also note that the tub is a mom's dream if you have younger children that struggle with showers. My family will definitely be back to Mermaid Point!

Just what we needed    Mar 01, 2022

review star

This was just what we needed! Cute condo that is warmly decorated to give you that get-away feel of the beach and ocean! The beds were so comfortable that we were able to relax after a long day on the beach which is a very convenient walk across the street. Best of all was the quietness this condo provided. It's a bit away from the more busy part of the 98 scenic highway. Loved the cozy neighborhood feel of this condo! We'll definitely be back!



Great stay great location    Mar 01, 2022

My husband and I stayed here with our young boys ages 7 &8. This place was perfect for us. Great proximity to the beach which is a walk across the street. Great neighborhood for walking running or biking. Property has a nice heated pool and hot tub. Close to major attractions. Check in and communication with owner was great. She was responsive and ensured we had everything we needed during our trip!

Great condo and love easy access to beach. We enjoyed quiet evenings on porch swing. Condo had items needed. It was clean. Renting from a private owner was more personal attention than a corporate owner. Hopefully Jessica will still own for years to come.
