Top 7 Reasons to Book a Destin Vacation Rental for Thanksgiving & the Holidays

Thanksgiving and the holidays are a special time of year when families get to enjoy precious time together.  At Newman-Dailey, we love welcoming families back to the beach to celebrate annual traditions and make new ones. Our extended family of guests and homeowners have discovered the joys of enjoying Thanksgiving and the holidays at a Destin vacation rental. Explore our collection of Destin vacation rental homes or Destin condos that are perfect for holiday celebrations. 


Here are the top 7 reasons to reserve a Destin vacation rental home for the holidays this year: 

#7. Ample Space and A Real Bed for Everyone

When staying at a family member’s house, it is often tight and someone inevitably ends up on an air mattress. The joy of selecting a vacation rental home is that you can select the size. Our collection of Destin vacation rentals ranges from one to nine bedrooms and rooms often include multiple beds and bunks. From large, spacious vacation rental homes with large kitchens, state-of-the-art appliances, and private pools to Gulf-front condominiums with spectacular views of the Emerald Coast, there are options that will accommodate families of all sizes, providing ample space for gathering as well as private rooms for alone time.

#6.  Multiple Televisions for Football Games & the Macy’s Parade

The joy of a rental home is that they often have flat-screen TVs in every room. No more fighting over what show to watch. On Thanksgiving, kids can indulge in video games while football fans watch game day, and the rest of the family enjoys the Macy’s Day Parade. Win-Win-Win!

#4. No Prep-Work Needed 

One of the dreaded tasks that comes with hosting the family for the holidays is the hours of cleaning in preparation for your guests' arrival. By celebrating at a beautiful, beach vacation rental home or condominium, you arrive at a clean, welcoming space and can immediately begin enjoying time together. And if you want to skip the outing to the grocery store, try a grocery delivery service such as the Beach Butler and let someone else do the shopping for you.

#3. Low Seasonal Rates

While rates vary by size and location, vacation rental rates during Thanksgiving and the holidays are 40-45% percent less than the peak summer season rates, and the price per family is often less than staying in a hotel. The best part is that a vacation rental offers all the luxuries of home, including a fully-stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, and multiple bedrooms/bathrooms.

#2. Activities for Everyone & The Beach

A bonus of celebrating the holidays in along the beaches of South Walton and Destin is the breadth of events and activities to suit everyone in the family. In Destin, there is the Gulfarium, the Track, Dolphin Cruises, and more, and with Newman-Dailey's Be Rewarded program, guests enjoy complimentary activities and discounts toward area restaurants, rentals and experiences. In addition, Thanksgiving parades, 5K-10K runs, family meals, and Santa's Arrival offer opportunities for families to get out and enjoy new experiences together at the beach. Lastly, families who want time to relax can unwind at the vacation home, or simply walk down to the beach to enjoy quality time along the Emerald Coast’s pristine shores.

#1. Maid Service When You Leave

The #1 reason to reserve a Destin vacation rental for the holidays is to have someone else handle the cleaning when the celebration is over! Simply fill the car with your belongings and drive away with warm memories of special times with family and loved ones.
