Where can you go on vacation during Coronavirus?


It is important to consult the CDC Travel Health Notices page for the latest travel advisories.
After experiencing social distancing and self-isolation, we know you'll be ready to  break free and enjoy life again. We think you'll be seeking destinations that provide open spaces, scenic beauty and a healthy lifestyle. These are the ingredients of a beach vacation along miles of soft white sand beaches on Northwest Florida's Gulf Coast. 
The team at Newman-Dailey wants to help families plan their escape to the beaches of South Walton and Destin, Florida and to have a sunny spot on their travel  calendar. As the beaches reopen and it becomes safe to travel again, the area's 53-miles of beaches offer a safe vacation experience in which families can spread out and reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19 by staying in a private vacation rental along Florida’s Emerald Coast.

Select a destination you can reach by car.

This is a good time to avoid busy, crowded places such as airports, crowded places such as airports and resorts. The U.S. has many scenic locales that are accessible by car from cities throughout the country.
VISIT FLORIDA is a great source of information for families interested in traveling to the sunshine state. In addition, the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Visitor Bureau and  Visit South Walton are great sources of local travel information and updates for the beaches of Northwest Florida, which are a short drive for those living in Southeastern and Midwestern states.  

Stay in a private vacation rental.  

The joy of a Destin beach vacation is the crystal white sand beaches and the option to say in a private vacation rental home or condominium. Vacation rental homes are a great option to limit your exposure to the public. The private residences include full kitchens so families can eat their meals without visiting crowded restaurants and include washer/dryer for cleaning linens and towels. For those staying in condominiums, guests are simply encouraged to use tissues as a barrier when using elevators, gates and stairs. In addition, guests can order groceries through our local “Beach Butler” service and avoid crowded grocery stores and have items delivered directly to their rental home.

Cleaned with Extra Care.  

At Newman-Dailey, we have heightened our cleaning standards.  In addition to our 65-point Inspection that matches the Vacation Rental Housekeeping Professional (VRHP) standards, we have provided each housekeeper and inspector a CDC document that specifically outlines the cleaning practices, including best practices for cleaning handles, appliances and remote controls, for Coronavirus. We have also armed our inspectors with additional cleaning supplies to disinfect handles during their inspection. Due to these added precautions, guests may experience delays at check-in. Visit our enhanced Sanitization and Cleaning procedures page to learn more.

Book with Confidence.

We have confirmed that Newman-Dailey’s Travel Insurance provider, Red Sky , will cover cancellation or interruption in your vacation stay if a member of the traveling party contracts Coronavirus and you supply a doctor’s note.
