This stately four-bedroom vacation home provides privileged residency for twelve fortunate beach-going guests. It is located in the exclusively gated Destiny by the Sea neighborhood, one of Destin’s most prestigious beachfront communities. You have probably noticed this neighborhood at the only curve along Scenic Gulf Drive between Destin and Miramar Beach. The lush palm-lined bend in the road created this walled-in enclave which accommodates residents and their guests in a wonderful gated world beside a beautiful beach.
Destiny’s Best Kept Secret is a classically styled three-story villa perfect for beach reunions among family and friends with individual guest quarters on each level. The coastal interiors of this home are adorned with beautiful decorative art throughout and comfortable creamy white cottage-style furnishings. Two guest quarters with luxury ensuite baths are on the first floor, with a king-sized bed in one bedroom and a queen in the other.
The spacious open living area is on the second floor with direct access to a furnished breezy balcony. High ceilings, beach-washed hardwood tiled flooring, and multiple windows provide a bright, welcoming look. A white wraparound couch with two matching armchairs ensemble around a tropically woven round cocktail table facing a large flatscreen TV for entertainment. Eight chic white framed decorative chairs with colonial straw woven seats offer charmed dining around a rectangular country-style table. Four tropically-inspired raised woven chairs sit near the bright regally appointed columned bar with a white marble top for entertaining. The state-of-the-art kitchen has cream-colored custom cabinetry and brushed stainless steel appliances available to create fun family feasts. A bunk room with double full and twin beds has access to a balcony and use of a full hall bath.
The spacious master bedroom encompasses the entire top floor, including a king-sized bed, a private romantic balcony, an ensuite bath with a marble-tiled tub, and a glass-walled walk-in shower.
Destiny by the Sea includes private beach access and a gorgeous neighborhood clubhouse featuring restroom facilities, showers, and dressing rooms in a very lushly landscaped oasis. This marvelous tropical setting includes a large lagoon-shaped swimming pool that is magically lit at night and seasonally heated. The pool patio is adorned with royal palm trees and includes a bubbling hot tub for soothing relaxation. An outdoor lounge sits beneath an open tower with a two-story-tall cathedral ceiling.
This sumptuous world in Destin is surprisingly close to restaurants, beach bars, and shopping adventures. Popular gulf front restaurants are very close by, including the Crab Trap, just a short beach stroll away. It resembles a charming seaside pavilion from the early 1900s and serves delicious seafood along with craft cocktails. Grocery stores and the idyllic shopping destination of Destin Commons are also minutes away. Destin Commons has an alluring ambiance with turret towers, an old-fashioned clock tower, pedestrian-friendly avenues lined with towering palms, a classic fountain, and a kid’s water geyser play area. A Belk’s Department Store, Bass Pro Shops, and Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl and Grill connect to avenues of fine clothiers, fashion boutiques, specialty stores, shoe shops, jewelers, restaurants with friendly bars along with an AMC multiplex movie theater. This locale is equidistant to HarborWalk Village on Destin’s happening marina and the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard in Sandestin. They all feature a wide array of wonderful restaurants, lively bars, specialty shops, fun family amusements, outdoor concerts, fabulous festivals, and exciting holiday firework celebrations.
