Forever Vacation Rentals: Destined For Fun in Destin. Welcome to "Destined For Fun," a truly one-of-a-kind, 5 bedroom, 5.

Welcome to "Destined For Fun," a truly one-of-a-kind, 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath vacation home with a private pool and cabana house! Destined For Fun is only two houses from the beach (yes seriously....only 2 houses away) and located in the beautiful residential community of Crystal Beach. If being extremely close to the beach is what you're looking for, then "Destined For Fun" is destined for you! 

The front door is only 88 yards away from the sugar white sand beaches of Destin! You will also have breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico from this amazing beach home. For your convenience, a pull cart will be available to help you easily get your toys, ice chests or beach gear to the beach and back. 

When you return from all the fun at the beach, you'll have plenty of space to relax in your very own 24x12 private pool (PS: ask us about optional pool heat), complete with a pool deck and a separate pool Cabana House. This means your family can soak up the sun, take a splash in the pool and cook-out on the BBQ grill while enjoying all the amenities that this spectacular home has to offer. The BBQ grill is connected to the gas line which means you can be a top chef all week long!  The Cabana House is a one bedroom hideaway (perfect for teenagers or maybe even grandparents who want a peaceful place of their own).  The Cabana House features a full bath, kitchenette, and living room.  It can sleep up to 4 people comfortably with a King bed and a Queen sleeper sofa.

Take a step inside to the main house to enjoy the open living room with a large flat-screen TV, two sofa's and two chairs for extra seating. This is the perfect gathering spot!  The connecting dining room seats 10, with additional seating at the kitchen bar and a separate area with two chairs and a table perfect for reading (or even working....if you really have too).  Enjoy cooking at home with the beautiful island kitchen that features granite counters and is fully equipped with everything you need to make your favorite meal. Destined For Fun features 4 King bedrooms, so everyone can sleep in luxury. Your kids will love the bunk room located on the 2nd floor that includes both a Twin-over-Twin and a Full-over-Full set of bunk-beds. Every room features a large flat-screen TV and tons of windows to enjoy the beautiful sunshine of Florida! If you're looking for the perfect spot for a morning coffee, make your way up the spiral staircase to the observation deck with gulf views.  

The beach isn't the only attraction at this home! Destined For Fun is within walking distance to the popular outdoor Destin Commons mall which features restaurants, retail shops, a fish-themed bowling alley and the AMC digital movie theater. Restaurants include El Jalisco's, World of Beer, Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl, Chipotle, Johnny Rockets, Red Brick Pizza, Zoe's Kitchen, and Kilwin's Ice Cream just to name a few.

Destined For Fun is also within a few blocks of some local eateries. Enjoy your morning coffee at Camille's which is not only great for breakfast, but also offers excellent sushi and fresh seafood for dinner. Beachwalk Cafe and 790 On The Gulf are great beachfront restaurants to watch the sunset while grabbing a bite to eat and sipping on a cold libation.

Covid 19 Respite    Jul 08, 2020

We rented the property after our previous vacation plans were destroyed by coronavirus. We needed a home with at least 4 bedrooms to host 10 people (4 small children) that was close to the beach and had a private pool. The location was excellent, very close to the beach in a suburban area away from the touristy areas. The beds were comfortable, and the home was well equipped for basic necessities, cooking, and most common situations (batteries, screwdriver, pencils available). There were plenty of beach toys, chairs, etc. and plenty of deck chairs, tables, and shade by the pool. The gas grill handled our burgers and steaks well. We had only a couple small issues (A/C went out on 1 of the 2 units in the main house, leaks at doorways during very heavy rain from tropical storm Cristobal). The management team immediately sent out a repair man who fixed the A/C unit. The kids loved the pool and local wildlife (lizards, crabs, sea slugs, etc), and we basked in the relaxing atmosphere. Thanks for a great experience!

Heaven    Aug 12, 2019

This property is truly fantastic. It is so close to the beach entrance and has lots of good dining and activities around. I think we only traveled over 2 miles in one trip when we went to Crab Island. If I am being picky, the beds need to be upgraded. Bring your own pillow and that will help. Our kiddos loved swimming in the morning, beach all afternoon, dinner, and then a late swim. It was heaven.

Great Place!!!    Jul 30, 2019

We had a great time with 4 families at the same time. Had all the cooking supplies we needed what a great stay. Easy ocean access though limited by private beaches on each side it was not a problem for us.

This property was the cleanest house we have rented in the past 9 years. Fit our needs perfectly and the Forever Vacation Rentals that take care of this property do an excellent job. Also were very attentive to all our needs when we were there. Responded quickly to emails etc.

Due to an unforeseen air conditioning leak at our original rental property, we found this property one day before our trip started and are SO thankful we ended up here! The house is beautiful and had plenty of space for 9 adults! There are also plenty of bathrooms! The beach is maybe a 2 minute walk! Straight shot out of the driveway to beach. The only negative thing I can say about this property is that the beach access is a public access wedged between 2 private condo beaches. They have the public area roped off but unfortunately it is only about 30 feet wide. So if you want Your own space, you have to stake your claim early! The only other issue we had was the pool was not super clean. But overall it was a beautiful house and an amazing trip! The rental company was also very helpful! Would definitely recommend!
