Great Stay!    Jul 25, 2020

We visited as a large family of 12 and had a great stay despite the pandemic. We cooked and only went to the beach and community pool as well as using the pool at the house. The house was well stocked with anything we could have needed. The golf carts were so handy. We had small issue with a kitchen faucet the first day and a maintenance man came quickly and resolved the issue.

review star


The vacation rental exceeded our expectations. We had 5 families and 16 people total during our stay.

Some quick highlight:
-The large kitchen and open concept allowed everyone to gather comfortably. The individual rooms and bathrooms were comfortable in size for such of a large group.
-The two outdoor patio area's were perfect. The kids would hang out at the patio at the pool and the parents played cards in the evening on the back patio.
-Location was convenient and close to everything you would need. There was a 5-10 minute walk to the beach or a quick golf cart ride. Parking at the beach was free and we never had any issues finding a spot.
-Beach furniture and toys were plentiful and many options for kids and adults

We'll definitely be back :)

Comfortable Stay    Mar 01, 2019

We had 12 adults and The property was very nice, huge, and comfortable for everyone! The kitchen is Equipped with many kitchenware and the ice make was an extra bonus! The golf carts were a true blessing! Every room is up to date and elegantly decorated. The only issue we experienced was the TV in the main sitting area did not work. The home speaker system throughout the house did not work! They delivered us a DVD player, but we had to rent Red box movies for 4 days which was an inconvenience! We asked for a Netflix box on day 2!, which they accommodate.. but it took us a day to get Netflix box to work! They offered us a Dolphin excursion to accommodate but It was canceled due to the weather! The house is amazing and emaculant, but not having the main TV caused an inconvenience for us to watch TV together! Will rent again but will be sure everything work!

Beautiful home which was large enough that we could all be seated together in the great room, dining room, pool, patio, etc. The golf carts were so fun and useful to zip over to the beach, to dinner or out for drinks. The Destin area was beautiful with its white sand beaches and our group used the pool every day. We will definitely be back to stay again!

We were very excited to be staying at Pearl of Destiny. The home was beautiful and so roomy. I loved the master bedroom being on the first floor. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed except for pot holders and kitchen towels. We’ll bring our own next year.The pool was an added bonus which everyone enjoyed. The two golf carts were great since we had so much stuff to carry to the beach and to ride in along the coast for fun . There were 10 of us so everyone had a seat. We’re already planning to come back next year.

Amazing!!!!  We loved everything about our stay at Pearl of Destiny. It looks just like the pictures show. There were 15 of us and the house/pool house were plenty big.  The furnishings were perfect.  The huge kitchen area allowed several people to be there without feeling cramped.  The pool area was particularly nice since we had kids ranging from 13 months to 7 years old.  The gate allowed the little ones to toddle around while the bigger kids played in the pool. The two golf carts were perfect for conveying our group to the beach and if you wanted to walk it was only a 7-10 min. walk.  Plenty of toys and games to enjoy too.  We enjoyed a Dolphin cruise as well as two rounds of golf as part of the Perks package. Everyone we dealt with while in Destin Palms was terrific and quick to assist us. All in all it was a perfect fit for our family.  We would book Pearl of Destiny again in a heartbeat!!!

Our family of six adults and six children thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Pearl of Destiny. It provided everything we could possibly need and then some.  The two golf carts were awesome to drive around the neighborhood and to the beach which is just a quick ride away.  The pool was used everyday including the days “Alberto” showered us with a little rain.  We cooked at home most days and the kitchen has everything, the only drawback being the ice maker not working.  Wonderful week in Destiny East!!!

Fabulous Family gathering    May 12, 2018

review star


Four families from across the country ( New York State, Atlanta, and San Diego) met at this fabulous home to celebrate our re-union. My 3 sons and their children ages 7years to 10 months, their wives and my husband were comfortably housed in this property. The amenities were wonderful; the home pool was in constant use. The athletic center, community pool and the theater were such a fun addition to the stay. The golf carts were such a convenient bonus, allowing us to go anywhere, anytime and not have to worry about parking. The beaches were the most beautiful sugar sand and the water was bright aqua. None of us have ever been in such a place. this is THE place to stay with 12 people who love the water experience. It is going to be hard to find another VRBO property like this to stay in when we meet again in another part of the country. Thanks for an unforgettable vacation.

We give this property at 10! We were in town for a wedding and it was the perfect setting to host the dress rehearsal dinner! We loved the amenities on the property as well as within the home. The ping pong table, pool, and golf carts were well used! The one had more than enough space for our large group. The kitchen was well stocked and great room so comfortable and relaxing. The grill by the pool provided fun outdoor grilling the first night we arrived. This property is well worth the rental cost. We loved using the golf cart to head to the beach just outside the gate and across the street. We will definitely rebook another time!

Family Vacation    Jun 18, 2017

We had a wonderful vacation with our extended family at the beautiful Pearl of Destiny. The bedroom arrangement was perfect for our group and our four grandkids loved being able to all sleep in one room in the cute four bunkbeds.  It is such a kid friendly home with plenty of board games, a ping pong table, a large assortment of beach toys including sand toys, boogie boards, life jackets and floats. The pool was wonderful and allowed an escape from the beach. The two golf carts were a lifesaver for the trips to the beach and we even went to a couple nearby restaurants in them...all 12 of us! The house has beautiful beachy décor and was very relaxing. We also enjoyed the tennis courts, and playground.  The weather did not allow us time to golf, maybe next time.  We hope to return to Pearl of Destiny for our next Destin vacation!

Great vacation home for a large family    Jun 03, 2017

review star

Pearl of Destiny was the perfect home for our family vacation (15 guests - 7 adults, 2 teenagers and 6 children under the age of 5). Looking at pictures of houses prior to booking we were drawn to this house and its large open kitchen, dining and family room. This area was perfect for all of us to be eat, drink, play games and relax together.

The use of the golf carts made getting to the beach, community pool, restaurants or just cruising scenic 98 a breeze. We got to the beach between 10-11 every morning and parking at the Crab Trap was never an issue. If you were walking to the beach it would be about a 10 minute walk.
One concern we had prior to getting down there was the size of the pool for all the kids but it really turned out to be perfect size. All the little kids were able to wear themselves out and would have stayed in there all day if we had let them. All of the bedrooms were clean and plenty big enough. The kids room could not have worked out better for our family. The little kids slept 3 across on the bottom bunk with plenty of room while the older kids slept up top.

We went to dinner at the Crab Trap (great food, close to the pearl of destiny and so easy to get to with the use of the golf carts). We also went to the Surf Hut at the recommendation of one of the neighborhood security officers. The food was great and the atmosphere was very family friendly. Both places are right on the beach and have things to do to keep the kids busy. On Thursday we went to Harry T's at the Harborwalk Village. All the boats going in and out kept the kids entertained. Again the food was great. After dinner on Thursday we stayed for fireworks which were a little disappointing as they only lasted 5 minutes.

We used xplorie for golf and a fishing trip. It was easy to use and gave a great discount.
 
This is a great home and we will certainly be back again!

Family Thanksgiving at Pearl of Destiny    Dec 31, 1969

review star


The Pearl of Destiny, Destin, FL. was everything we expected and more. Invited the whole family, had plenty of room, and enjoyed fixing the Thanksgiving feast in the giant kitchen area. Then, after eating, the walk along the beach capped off a wonderful experience. The rental was clean, well maintained, and everyone involved in the rental process was most helpful. Highly recommend this place for a family or friend gathering.

Great spot for a large group    Dec 31, 1969

review star


The last time we vacationed as a family of 18, the house just needed some TLC. The owner claimed he had fixed many things that he had not.

The Pearl of Destiny is a magnificent vacation home in excellent shape and spotlessly clean. The management staff was very responsive and any issues (which were small) were taken care of very promptly. The on-site pool meant adults could sit and keep an eye on the swimmers while the kids had a blast. The on-site pool really made th home a huge hit for our group.
