The House is Half the Vacation, Right?    May 09, 2015




We loved our stay at this house! Blessed with great weather! Early May is the perfect time to go to Destin. Weather is perfect, no crowds, and the water is beautiful. The gate to the beach is literally right in front of the community entrance. Even though this house is second to the last on the drive, the walk is very easy (our youngest is 8). Being in a gated community this close to Destin in a real plus. Our family of 5 had plenty of space and more in this house. Lots and lots of wonderful restaurants close by, some within walking distance on the beach. Fat Clemenza's have authentic Italian dishes and woodfire pizza. Jordanos was our favorite pizza place. Call early to get takeout, don't count on the closing hour of 10 . Deweys Destin was really good right on the harbor. I had the best grilled chicken sandwich that I've ever had at Cheeseburger in Paradise. My family really liked that place. We went to the two biggest malls in the area, Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlet. If you couldn't find what you wanted there, you didn't need it. If you plan on doing any deep sea fishing or helicopter touring, book in advance before you get there and call to confirm often. Can't wait to return!
