Neptune's Nook On Scenic Gulf Drive, 20 Yards And Your Feet Our In The Sand

Start a new tradition of a lifetime of vacation memories. This magnificent, new, 2500 square foot, three story home, is on the corner of Scenic Gulf Drive and just steps from the beach access that leads to the world’s most beautiful beaches!

This family friendly home features a third floor with 2 Master Suites, each with a private bathroom. Keep your smaller children close by in the separate bunk area. Escape to serenity in your third floor private sitting room equipped with a mini-wine cellar, or enjoy the breeze and sounds of the ocean on your gulf-view balcony.

The kids and teens can enjoy a 'Kid's Recreation Floor' with a private bedroom with a queen bed, a full-size sleeper sofa, 42' LCD HD TV, movie library, video games, foosball, and a wide variety of board games. This walk-in level has a kitchenette with a full size fridge, sink, microwave and dining area, as well as a bathroom with a stand-up shower. These amenities could also be considered 'handicapped accessible.'

The main level on the second floor offers that great central meeting area, conducive for planning out tomorrow's adventures. Enjoy a home-cooked seafood feast or an afternoon snack in the fully equipped kitchen, with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops with eat-at bar. Watch a family movie on the 42' HD with surround sound TV or tune the entire house, pool and courtyard to enjoy your own music, direct from your iPod or MP3 player. This level also includes a private queen-size bedroom, perfect for the in-laws, and a bathroom with stand-up shower as well as full-size sleeper sofa.

Enjoy your day of shopping, adventuring, site-seeing or beach-going on the '24 mile long ribbon of sparkling, snow-white beaches' of Destin, as voted the #1 'Beach Town/Resort' in the 2008 Southern Living 'Readers' Choice Awards,' January 2008 edition. Then relax in the lush landscaping of the private courtyard, reminisce over the day's events, take a dip, or just sit and listen to the home’s namesake “Neptune”, a wall-mounted fountain, as he emits his spray into the private heated lagoon pool. The pool is enclosed, separate from the courtyard, and the first floor doors alarm when opened.

Neptune’s Nook is located directly on the corner of Scenic Gulf Drive and Miami Street. The coastal town of Destin is known as the 'World's Luckiest Fishing Village' where the fresh catch of day can be enjoyed just up the street at great local restaurants such as 'Pompano Joe's,' 'Captain Dave's,' or 'The Whale's Tail.'

Just steps away you can enjoy wine tasting, gourmet coffee, grab a pizza, shop for souvenirs, or rent a scooter. Shopping at 'Silver Sands Factory Outlet', the nation's largest designer factory outlet, featuring more than 100 name brand designer stores, or 'Destin Commons' featuring the 'Bass Pro Shop' and 'Hard Rock Cafe' are only a few minutes away

My whole family had a wonderful time at Neptunes Nook!    Jul 10, 2021

review star

My family of 10 (3 separate families) stayed at Neptunes Nook last week. It was so perfect for us! Each family had their own floor so we weren't all on top of each other. It worked out so well! The beach is literally right across the street and the house has an umbrella and 2 beach chairs set up each day, which is so convenient. We enjoyed the ocean and also the private patio with splash pool - even us grown-ups got in it! It was perfect to cool off in if you didn't feel like going to the beach. Pascalli's is just right down the street with in walking distance if you don't feel like driving anywhere. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner options you can get and take back to the house if you don't feel like cooking. There is also a Dairy Queen next to it (ice cream only I think). The street itself is a very busy intersection, but we enjoyed sitting on the balcony some evenings and watching people and bikes go by. Even though it's busy, we never heard any sounds at night when it was time to go to bed. We ALL slept so good - maybe the ocean air, and also maybe the beds were super comfortable! We would definitely go back to Neptunes Nook. We made many wonderful memories during our stay here. Every one of us loved it!

I rented this home to celebrate my 58th birthday and it was perfect. It had the space that we needed, it was in the right location and just a few steps from the beach. We enjoyed having access to 4 bikes that were on the property for your use. When I called Dale he was always Johnnie on the spot. We will definitely rent from them again.

Love this place    Jun 30, 2019

This house was truly amazing for our family! Have had so many bad experiences with homes not being what they appear but Neptune’s Nook was all and more of what it states! Highly recommend this property and the location is wonderful for walking distance to many areas and literally walk across the street and through the gate and you are on the beach in seconds!! Our family of 6 adults and 4 children aged 11months to 6 years old made so many memories here in a week that will last a lifetime! We defiantly look forward to returning to Neptune’s Nook in the future! 💙

Wonderful Vacation - June 2018    Jun 25, 2018

review star

We have stayed at Neptune's Nook several times and it has been perfect each time. This property is as close and convenient to the beach that you can get without paying beach front prices. The owner is incredibly responsive and can imagine he would be helpful if any issues arose, but we have not had any. However, he has kept in contact each time, checking in to see if everything is ok, so I am sure he would be on-the-spot to address any possible issues.

The house comfortably sleeps our two families (4 adults, 4 children ages 3-6) with much room to spare. We had an empty bedroom on the ground floor that we did not need to use. There are plenty of games, movies, and books at the house to entertain the kids. There are also tons of beach toys to use during your stay. After learning this on our first visit, we were able to greatly reduce our carload on subsequent vacations.

The private outdoor pool and patio are perfect if you have to take breaks from the beach. In our case, it has been nice to not have to be completely away from the sun and water when a kid has to come in to take nap.

As perfect as it is for families, I can see it working just as well and comfortably for groups without children.

I have been coming to the Destin area for over 25 years now and stayed in all types of properties all along the beach - and this one is my clear favorite because of the setup, amenities, price, and location. Cannot recommend enough!

Wonderful week!    Aug 17, 2017

Neptunes Nook was a great place to stay! Close to the beach, with a great splash pool for the kids. The house was spacious and very quiet to outside noise. Mr. Brown was so great to work with during the rental process. He was very quick with replies to my questions and made me feel at ease with the rental details. The house was perfect for us !

Amazing house to stay in with children    Jun 15, 2016

review star

Great rental to stay in with children. Direct access to the beach from the house. Small pool to cool in after a hot day on the beach. Place to rinse off sandy toes and toys right by the pool. Spacious family space with amazing bunk beds. Great for multiple families. Lots of sand toys so no need to bring any. Small gated in back year to hang wet clothes to day. Dairy Queen in walking distance. Outlets five minutes away. Great sidewalks for walking or running. Overall an amazing stay. We will definitely consider it for future family trips.

What a wonderful vacation. Dale was outstanding to work with on our reservations, made everything so easy. The home and location was PERFECT! Right across the street from the private entry beach, just steps away. We had 3 families with 3 teenage boys and the home was plenty big. The amenities we fantastic, beach service was a bonus that we thoroughly enjoyed. Great location, walking distance to Pompano Joe's and Whale's Tail. The home was equipped with everything one could need and was spotless when we arrived. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will most definitely return!

Love this property. Pool was perfect for the kids and location is beyond fantastic! Had three families one on each floor and each had their own private retreat. Would recommend to anyone who wants beach proximity, right next to restaurants, beach bike rides, pool, and did I say beach proximity.

The House and it's location was amazing. Perfect for a large group as we had 11 with 3 small children so pool was perfect as well as close location to beach (no long truding walks to beach loaded down) The house is in very good shape with everything you need. We have been to destin 4 times and stayed in a home each time but we will not be looking any further. This one is it for us!!!!! Thank you Dale and Adelia for sharing it with us we really appreciate it.

Thank you for sharing your home.. beautiful home with everything we needed.
