Enjoy the large deck that spans the entire back of the house and a dock directly on the lake. Dine or just relax as you listen to the fountain in the middle of the lake and the palms swaying in the breeze. 

Also enjoy easy access to walking trails overlooking the Gulf, and James Lee Park with its covered picnic areas that have grills, easy dune walkovers, restrooms, and showers. Bring a picnic lunch or leave your towels and beach chairs on the sand while you enjoy casual beachside dining or the open air beach bar at The Crab Trap, where appetizers and cool drinks make watching the sunset over the Gulf a memorable experience.

This beautiful vacation rental home in an elegant, quiet neighborhood is perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the white sand and emerald water, but be within minutes of the area's most popular attractions.

It was great. Perfect location for access to pool, beach, and lake behind the house for kids to fish. Publix/Walmart are quick drive, as well as other restaurants, starbucks, etc... Would for sure come back!

Beach Babes Turn 60ish and Celebrate at "Worth the Wait!"    Apr 14, 2018

review star

Four of us gal pals finally were able to get together to celebrate turning 60! When I stumbled upon the "Worth the Wait" house and read previous reviews, I thought it sounded like the perfect house. I was right! My friends told me they trusted me to make the decision, and I definitely made the right one. The house is beautiful, and the deck was great! The weather wasn't good when we first arrived, but we got our shopping out of the way and took a Dolphin tour. When the weather cleared, we headed to the beach which was only steps away. It was absolutely beautiful! We spent as much time there as we could soaking up the sun and seeing the gorgeous water--nothing better than that! We did not take advantage of any of the community amenities, but I'm sure they would have been great too. Martha, at the property management company was very helpful. I ran into a couple of problems having gifts for my girlfriends shipped there, but we managed to straighten it out, and Martha was wonderful. She answered all my many questions and always responded quickly. I would highly recommend this rental property. We can't wait to go back!!!

!0th year wedding anniversary. We could not have chosen a more perfect place. Neighborhood was great to walk in and view some of the other homes in this property. If someone cant enjoy this place, its there own fault.

It was the perfect property for our family of four.  The house had everything we needed and more and the grounds were amazing.  Loved sitting on the deck every morning, sipping coffee and enjoying the wildlife.

Definitely Worth the Wait!!!!    Aug 01, 2015

review star

We had an incredible time in Destin and at this rental. We couldn't have asked for a nicer home for our week away. Extremely clean, well laid out and very peaceful. The guys enjoyed having the dock out back, they fished nearly every evening (only 1 little fish caught!), while I enjoyed  the small screened porch off one of the bedrooms. The beach was a short walk and was just gorgeous.. We enjoyed it so much that we are already planning our return to Destin and this house!!!

Family Vacation    Jul 11, 2015

review star

We were a two family group that stayed in this property in July.  It was meticulously clean, beautifully decorated, and with high end appliances.  Especially loved the top load HE large capacity washing machine, and dryer. The highlight of our morning and evening was spent on the back deck overlooking the lake.  It was a great view from inside the house as well.  We'd like to thank the family that has graciously opened their house for rental - it seemed like we were borrowing from a friend!  Only thing lacking was a golf cart (who wouldn't love that!) or wagon to help transport items to the beach.  Highly recommend this house to others.  Thank you for a great vacation home!

Great place for the family    Dec 31, 1969

We had a great time! We had 7 total people including 2 kids and the house was perfect! We caught several fish off the dock in the back yard and our kids had a blast. The house was clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking utensils we needed. We have already recommended this house to other families interested in the Destin area.
