About the property

A Stone's Throw Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

Resting just across from the sunny pool deck and close enough to the Gulf to hear the waves crashing, A Stone's Throw will keep the mermaids in your family perfectly content. Upon entry, hand scraped wood floors accented by sky-blue walls and eye-catching art create a soothing haven for rest and relaxation. Plus, an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining room and living room makes it easy for everyone to mingle.

After a memorable day in Destin's warm sunshine, either on the shores of the white sandy beaches at the end of Newman Drive or golfing at one of the several great courses nearby, this Destin vacation rental will warmly welcome you to your new home away home. The kitchen is chef-ready and the dining area seats eight so that all will be able to view the large flat screen TV hanging over the fireplace- the perfect set up for dinner and a movie. If quiet time is what you're after, the primary suite's large bathroom with its jacuzzi bathtub and rejuvenating periwinkle walls is sure to do the trick!

When you're ready to venture outside the walls of this vacation rental, A Stone's Throw is close to all of Destin's exciting entertainment and dining options. Just over two miles west is the Destin Commons- a popular outdoor mall, Hurricane Lanes- one of the area's favorite bowling alleys as well as plenty of delicious restaurants offering the best of local seafood. On the other hand, renting a few bikes and slowly cruising down the bike path that runs along the beach is a wonderful way to spend a day. Whatever you choose, the only thing set in stone is the charming nature of A Stone's Throw and the heartwarming memories waiting to be made.

We require a minimum length of stay during the summer and over holidays.
We do not rent to anyone under 25 or to students

Guests receive a welcome kit with small dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponge, a roll of paper towels, and laundry detergent. There will be an initial trash liner in each receptacle and a set of toilet paper and soaps for each bathroom provided. Guests will need to replenish supplies for longer stays.

As others have said, the location of this home is incredible. The home is spacious enough for a group, in a quiet neighborhood and very comfortable. The layout of the rooms permits one family or group to be in the front of the home, and another couple to be in the master, each with plenty of their own space. As mentioned, it is one story, another bonus for some. The beach access is at Pompano Joe's Restaurant, right at the end of the street. There are about 4 steps, then maybe 20 more steps down to the beach, where there is a foot wash and shower for the return. We never saw the handicapped beach access pictured, with ramps, but I'm sure we'd have found it if we'd asked. The small community pool is directly across the street from the home, with its own foot wash and shower. It has a large covered area with ceiling fan with tables and chairs for those who desire shade. The home was very clean, well stocked and Newman-Dailey was extremely helpful with repairing a couple of small items when we arrived. One appliance- the clothes dryer- seems to be coming to its life's end, so they exchanged out our bath towels for us and they plan to replace the dryer soon. There is a small cart with some beach toys in the garage, which we appreciated using, and a bin with a couple of boogie boards. The back yard has a great grill, large and small table with chairs for outdoor meals, if desired. The "bonus" sun/family room was really nice for expanding our space. We parked on the driveway, but there is the full two car garage for anyone wanting to use it. Thanks to Newman-Dailey. We loved our beach vacation!

The house was wonderful. It was spacious enough for the family. The check in is set really late and check out is too early. This was non negotiable.

Newman-Dailey Response:

We do have a 4pm check-in time for the rental property. However, you are more than welcome to park at any public beach access and begin to enjoy your day on the Gulf of Mexico. There are also great shops and restaurants nearby we encourage you to visit to get the most out of your check-in day. Thanks for staying with us and we look forward to your next vacation!

This property was in a perfect location and well suited for our vacation. We had one slight issue with one of the bathroom toilets running but maintenance came within a few hrs. The pool was conveniently located and within minutes of the beach. This space was perfect for our girls trip and would be great for a 2 family vacation.

Newman-Dailey Response:

We have received your review of A Stone’s Throw and agree this rental offers plenty of space to spread out. We appreciate the 5 star review. However, we are disheartened to hear you had some issues with the Queen Bed. Unfortunately, mattresses are very subjective. Some guests think they are too hard, while others think they are too soft. To ensure our guests are comfortable, we are happy to provide extra mattress pads or mattress toppers that can bring the mattress to your desired level of comfort. We appreciate your feedback and have forwarded your review to the property manager to share with the owner. We look forward to your next stay with us.

We recently stayed here with my parents and my teenage children and there was plenty of room for all of us. This house is in a great location and convenient to everything. I especially appreciated the fact that it was all on one level since my Mother has a bad hip and stairs would have been difficult for her. We would stay here again!

stone's throw home vacation rental

4.0

the location was a block from the beach. free umbrella and chair reservation at pompano joe's was very convenient so we did not have to carry heavy stuff back and forth every day. the house was adequate but carpet not vacuumed or floors swept before we arrived. towels were left in the washing machine so i had to do a load of laundry. we had small kids and 2 teenage girls so i gave them chores to sweep and do laundry. the shower door was hard to close. the biggest issue was flying ants in the house but did not want them to spray with little kids around. the vacation home had basics and the stove was dirty. a little better maintenance would be helpful including cleaning the air conditioner vent. i grabbed the vacuum and took care of this myself. it was very close to the rental office and macdonalds, wal-mart, commons mall, etc. the stretch of beach in front of pompano joes had less people and convenient jet ski rentals (bit expensive $100 an hour) if you are interested but we were ther for swimming in the beautiful ocean and clean sand. being from houston and having only galveston island nearby the beach is night and day and worth the long drive. nice to have a garage to park the car out of the heat and very short walk to beach. quiet and convenient location. will probably stay at another vacation rental next time and pay a little more but this was reaonable budget for up to 2 small families. it had a sun room and the sprinkler system came on every morning and woke up my brother in law and walls are paper thin so you can hear young kids waking up early in the morning. the vacation was nice and that was what we will remember. i called to inform the office about the issues and was told a manager would call me but they never did ... oh well. doesn't change our good memories of destin but he house needs some minor improvements. will probably rent from newman daily again next time but pay a little more next time. you get what you pay for...

Easy check in. The house is very nice. Love having the washer and dryer, garage, 4 Tv's, and dishwasher. Unfortunately, the 4th of July week is very busy down there. Very crowded on Emerald Parkway. Hard to get around to visit the mall, etc. Also, I was warned that there would be a repairman on Monday, July 1 around 9 a.m. to fix the roof. He started pounding his hammer over the 3rd bedroom around 7:15 a.m. and woke up my son and nephew. The repairman also left 3 long screws in the driveway where he was parked. Luckily, we found them before we ran over them!

A Stone's Throw, was exactly that, loved being so close to the beach. We had nine in our party and everyone was very comfortable, plenty room for everyone. Could have used a few more towels for that many people. We were very happy with everyone at Newman-Dailey that assisted us in planning our trip. Hope to visit again one day! Thank you for everything.

We had a great week and enjoyed the house. The location is perfect - just a brief walk to the beach and right across from the pool. Loved being able to walk to coffee shop and Pompano Joes. The house was decorated well, clean and comfortable. Location convenient to many businesses - groceries, restaurants, etc. Would be an improvement for the property if there was a bicycle tire pump for the 2 bikes. Also, more silverware is needed, there was not enough to accomodate our needs. Otherwise the house was really great and would rent again.
