Styled in elegant grandeur, this three level luxury beachfront retreat comprises over 4000 square feet with 8 bedrooms and 6 baths sleeping 26 comfortably on a private beach. Watch the dolphins or fall asleep listening to the waves from any of the 3 levels and travertine decks. Upon your entry, the living area is spacious and beautifully decorated with colorful sleeper sofas and 2 swivel chairs to delight in an unobstructed picture from the glass-front balcony with views of the Gulf from almost every corner. The family gathering space was built for entertainment with a home theatre that includes a Bose speaker system, Blu Ray player, and a 55” high definition television. The formal dining area seats twelve, while the open kitchen features granite countertops throughout with additional seating at the bar for four.

The two masters have king beds and generous baths, one that boasts a large, jetted soaking tub. For the kids, a separate bedroom offering new full size bunk beds direct from the Pottery Barn and a Jack and Jill bathroom. The first floor level provides private beach access, including an outdoor hot tub and gas grille, a fully appointed second living area and game room with fine Italian leather furnishings complete with a full sleeper sofa. The kitchenette provides the convenience of a refrigerator, microwave, built in icemaker, separate beverage cooler and an extended wet bar for family gatherings. A second 55” television gives everyone plenty of room to spread out and enjoy their favorite shows, sporting events and movies.  Cable TV and wireless WIFI are available in all the bedrooms, great room, kitchen, study and game room.  First floor is complete with a laundry center with washer & dryer, full bath with walk-in shower and a bedroom with a queen size bed and stunning beach views. Exquisite beachfront luxury awaits you!

Hannah

We had a wonderful time! Thank you.    Mar 24, 2018




The house was beautiful, spacious, and well decorated. It was equipped with all you need to just arrive and unwind. It was perfectly located for family fun and relaxation directly on the beach. The views of the sunrise and sunset were amazing!! The owners were great to assist when needed and very friendly.

David Dubiel's reply:

My wife (Laurie) sincerely appreciates your positive feedback regarding the decorations in the house! She put her heart into the home trying to make our guests feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed staying in a large spacious beach theme home. We believe this separates our home from many others on the rental market! The higher quality of the furnishings and decor is much different than other beach houses. Laurie and I hope to share our home with more families like yours traveling on vacation who want to make lasting memories on the beach. Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to your return next year! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners The Magnificat

The Perfect Place!    Feb 20, 2018



This awesome house has it all! The beautiful beach and the ocean are right at your back deck. The bedrooms are very spacious, very comfortable and relaxing. The house was perfect for our large group of 16 ladies and has a well equipped kitchen for cooking. The extra den on the first level was great giving us plenty of room for entertaining and watching the Olympics! Thank you for sharing your home with us! We've found the perfect place and will be back for many years to come!!

David Dubiel's reply:

My wife Laurie & I are so happy your group of 16 ladies enjoyed the beachfront decks, multiple bedrooms, and gourmet kitchen! The second living area from the main great room is normally a separate getaway space for families with young children, teens or college-age kids to watch movies or play video games. It was great to hear about the adults finding their own relaxing spot to watch the Winter Olympics on the large 55" HD TV! Thank you for staying with us on the beach. It was a joy to share our family beach home with your group and we look forward to your return for many years to come! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners The Magnificat

Excellent Business Meeting Location!    Feb 24, 2018




This was a fabulous location for a small team meeting. Very close to the outlets, yet in a low-traffic neighborhood. The beach was perfect and uncrowded. Check in and check out was extremely easy and owners were very responsive. The house is clean, beautiful, and looks exactly like the photos. I will definitely return to this location again, as soon as I can find another excuse for a meeting!

David Dubiel's reply:

Thank you, Stacie for choosing The Magnificat for your business meeting! We are getting an increased number of business groups such as yours staying at the beach home as a luxurious beachfront cost-effective alternative to local hotels. The location of the home cannot be matched in the quiet secluded neighborhood. The Silver Sands Outlet Mall and restaurants one traffic light away are one of the best-kept secrets outside of the private beach! We pride ourselves in a well-kept home, cleanliness, and prompt responses to our guests. We greatly appreciate your feedback. We look forward to your group returning to our little piece of heaven on earth! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners of The Magnificat

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!!    Feb 07, 2018



We celebrated our 40th anniversary with 5 couples at this amazing home. This was our first try at renting a property and we are sure this is the standard to measure against as this was far above what we expected and the owners are obviously truly interested in this being a very good experience. If your looking to rent a property this should be as far as you go as we are certain everything else will pale in comparison.

David Dubiel's reply:

Allen: Thank you for the wonderful review. Laurie & I are so happy you chose The Magnificat to celebrate your 40th wedding anniversary. We are so happy to hear you the 5 couples enjoyed their rental experience and how high we have set the bar for future rentals. Thank you for the recommendation. Please come back for your anniversary next year! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners The Magnificat

Best Location on Destin Beach    Oct 30, 2017



The property is located on the most perfect area of the beach in Destin. The walkway to the ocean is less than 20 ft, you could not be closer to the water! There are 3 levels of decks overlooking the water giving the most relaxing experience you could ask for! The property was clean and the layout was great for our smaller group or larger groups, there are plenty of beds for a big group, but if you have a smaller group, don't discount this property because the location cannot be beat! The kitchen was complete with all the tools you would need for staying in and cooking, including multiple blenders and coffee pots. But the location is within very short distance to many great eating places, so you have the best of both worlds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property to any beach lover!

David Dubiel's reply:

Leigh: My wife and I enjoyed hosting your stay. Thank you for pointing out that The Magnificat is not only for large groups but, small groups as well! The location on the East side of Destin adjacent to the Sandestin Resort and Hilton Hotel in walking distance is a wonderful feature of the home. Thank you for mentioning the well-stocked kitchen and multiple small appliances. Many of our guests will appreciate your comment on how wonderful the location is not only for the beach but, its close proximity to great dining!! The 3 levels of decks are a great spot to relax and watch the dolphins! Please come again and stay with us at our home on the beach!! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners The Magnificat

Truly Magnificent    Mar 12, 2017



Our family of six was back for the third stay at this beautiful place. The house is wonderful and the beaches are spectacular. If you have had enough of the sun and sand, there are so many things close by that appeal to many age levels. Our kids range from 22 to 6 and all of them have so much fun in this area of Destin. We have stayed at other areas of Alabama and Florida to enjoy the beaches and none of them compare to the white sands and turquoise clear water in this part of Florida. The beach is a very short walk off of the back deck and having a stretch of private beach is really nice.

David Dubiel's reply:

Thank you for the kind review. We are so happy your family returns to stay with us each year! We strive to make The Magnificat a family centered home comfortable for both adults and/or children to spend their vacation. It's always a pleasure to hear how much fun the kids had on the private beach! I'm sure you enjoyed how easy it was taking your kids out the back door on the deck near the hot tub onto the beautiful white sand and emerald clear water! The beach access is an added bonus to the beautiful views from the home on any of the 3 Ocean front decks. I hope your children were able to see the dolphins swimming by the house! We look forward to hosting your family next year once again! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners

Kate Brownlee

Stunning!    Apr 07, 2017



This beautiful home is perfectly situated right on the beach - it felt like our own personal oasis. There is no fuss with getting on/off the beach because there is a short path from the back door straight to the beach. The house is also conveniently located near restaurants, shops, etc. The house is beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and has plenty of space for large groups. The view from the master bedroom is overlooking the ocean and just gorgeous! And the spacious balconies allow everyone to enjoy the beach views. I spent an entire morning snuggled up on the balcony! It was a perfect getaway - we didn't want to leave!

David Dubiel's reply:

Thank you, Kate, for staying at The Magnificat with your husband and large group. We are happy you enjoyed the birthday celebration stay on the beach! We always enjoy hearing how wonderful and easy the beach access is over the private boardwalk from the back door! The views from the Master bedroom and travertine deck on the third floor are heavenly!! Being able to sit in bed and look straight out into the emerald green and deep blue water is priceless! We are glad to know how comfortable your large group found The Magnificat inside or relaxing on any of the 3 ocean front decks. Please come back! We want all of our returning guests to make it an annual tradition each year! Every trip is meant to be a perfect getaway! Hope to see you staying in our home on the beach again soon! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners The Magnificat

The Magnificat was Magnificent! Highly recommended!    Apr 05, 2017



The Magnificat has got to be the best place to relax on the beach, anywhere in Florida. The house was exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, well laid out for large groups, and the location was perfect. It was far enough away from all of the condos and hotels that we didn't have to deal with a bunch of kids on spring break, but was close enough to all of the conveniences and nightlife of Destin. We could relax, undisturbed on the pure white sand of our private beach, or choose to mingle at the local watering holes. The house itself, was absolutely awesome. Three stories, with a gas grill, media room and wet bar, downstairs (conveniently located next to your very own hot tub), a full spacious kitchen on the second floor, with yet another living/entertainment area, two balconies with amazing views of the clear blue water, and enough bedrooms and bathrooms for even a large family or a bunch of close friends. The Magnificat is the only place to stay, if you're visiting Destin. I highly recommend it and cannot wait to visit again.

Thank you Jason for your comments. One of the reasons we purchased this property was the location. The Magnificat is nestled into a small very private Florida community with no public beach access. We do enjoy the close proximity to restaurants and shops. We are so happy you enjoyed the pure white sand and emerald waters on our private beach. Thank you for your recommendation for people looking to book with large groups or birthday celebrations as you experienced. I am happy to hear how spacious the home was for your group. We want you, your wife and your entire group back! We look forward to your next stay with us at The Magnificat! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners

Heaven This Side of Heaven    Feb 07, 2017



The Magnificat is truly heaven this side of heaven! The view is breathtaking from morning until night. I honestly don't know what time of the day was my favorite. We would walk each morning on the white sand, and end each day sitting on the balcony watching the moon put itself to sleep in the ocean. The beach themed decor adds to the beauty of this home and every room is spacious. You can see and listen to the magnificent ocean not only from the living room balcony, but from the master bedroom balcony too. The two large living areas upstairs and downstairs allow you to have time with the adults while the kids can have their own space downstairs. The managers, Laurie and David, made sure everything was perfect on our arrival and even checked in with us during the week. They helped us by suggesting local restaurants and activities that all of us would enjoy.You could tell that they truly wanted my family and me to have a trip of a lifetime. The central location of the Magnificat is superb! You are less than a mile from the Destin outlet mall and can get most anywhere within 15 minutes. If we ever get to visit Destin again, there is no doubt where we will stay. Hands down it will be the magnificent Magnificat!

David Dubiel's reply:

Jennifer: Your review sums up our beach front home! We love the walks along the beach in the morning or watching the sunset from our balconies. Our children love to to see the dolphins swimming past the home from our decks! Waking up in the master bedroom is a never ending thrill seeing the beautiful emerald water against the sugar white sand! We are glad you found the home very spacious and enjoyed the two separate living areas. I'm certain our location in close proximity to the shops and the Silver Sands Outlet Mall made it much easier to get around! I know you are planning on a return visit and we look forward to hosting your group of family or friends once again at The Magnificat! Laurie & David Dubiel

Perfect Destination!    Mar 10, 2017



I stayed at this amazing home for about a week! The location was perfect with a private beach. It was so nice to not have to worry about trying to find the perfect spot on the beach since you had the beach all to yourself! This house is conveniently located close to Baytowne, the outlets, and other stores! There was plenty of space in the house and it was very neat. I would highly recommend this beach to anyone looking for the perfect getaway!

David Dubiel's reply:

Brooke: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We have found guests coming to stay near Destin are searching for a special home with a private beach. The Magnificat has this to offer to our guests as you graciously noted. Additionally, many of the people booking don't realize how close our home is located to the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Baytown and the Grand Boulevard shops & restaurants just a few minutes away! Thank you for letting us know how neat The Magnificat is kept as we take great pride in maintaining the property and keeping it clean for all our guests. We want you to come back and stay on the beach! Please tell all your friends & family about your wonderful stay at The Magnificat! Laurie & David Dubiel Owners

Amazing Home!    Mar 15, 2017



I stayed here for about a week and it was fantastic! The location was prime, and the beach was amazing! The beach is private, therefore you don't have to worry about searching for a place to sit in a sea of people. There was plenty of space in this home, and the house was very clean and tidy. I would highly recommend this beach home to anyone searching for a relaxing getaway!

David Dubiel's reply:

Molly: Thank you for your five star review of The Magnificat! We appreciate your comments regarding the PRIVATE BEACH. Many guests who rent elsewhere do not realize that they may be renting a home near public beach access causing an influx of people who are discourteous and who will set up their chairs right in front of you! NOT at The Magnificat. We are located in a very private beach front community with no public access. We take great pride in this aspect of having a private beach just steps out the back door. Thank you for pointing this out to other guests who are not wanting to fight the crowds to find a spot on the beach and can simply relax at The Magnificat! Laurie & David Dubiel

Absolutely Wonderful!    Mar 11, 2017



Beautiful house with an even better view; it's right on the beach! When we arrived the house was clean and ready for us to start our week at the beach! The location was excellent for our big group; the outlet mall, grocery stores, seaside, etc were never a far drive for anyone who did not want to spend the day at the house. The house was very spacious and everyone had plenty of room for themselves. The manager, David, was very helpfully and was able to answer all of our questions quickly! Would highly recommend this location to anyone!

David Dubiel's reply:

Thank you Jenna for taking time to submit a review! Laurie & I enjoyed having you as our guest in our Beach Front home! We hope you enjoyed your stay and were very happy to hear how spacious the home was to your group! Thank you for your recommendation. We appreciate your kind words. Please come back and book again. Laurie and I would love to see you return to The Magnificat soon!

Perfect destination    Mar 10, 2017



I stayed at this wonderful home for a week, it is in a prime location only a mile away from the outlet mall, grocery stores, baytowne, etc. It was great walking up with all the doors open looking out onto the beach, and being able to walk out and see dolphins swimming by. The private beach was ideal! Including a hot tub, huge kitchen, and ample amounts of space. Highly recommend!

David Dubiel's reply:

Thank you Aysha! It was a pleasure having you stay on the beach for a week with us! We are so happy you and your friends enjoyed yourselves and were able to see the dolphins from our home! It's always exciting to be able to watch the wildlife from one of our 3 outdoor decks! We were glad to hear you liked the new hot tub and were able to take advantage of the Silver Sands Outlet Mall one street light away! We look forward to having you back as a repeat guest at our beach house! Laurie & David
