About the property

Our Great Escape Professionally Managed by Newman-Dailey

The sunny interior of Great Expectations Destin vacation rental home along with its close proximity to the beach is guaranteed to cure all kinds of ailments because, after all, there isn’t much that vitamin sea can’t fix! The three bedrooms and open living area are decked in rejuvenating coastal tones and cheerful beach-themed decor along with carefully coordinated furnishings. Cool tile floors, a laundry room and a kitchen with breakfast bar overlooking the large dining table along with all the cookware you’ll need ensures Great Expectations has all the necessities of home but with none of the annoyance. With two king bedrooms, a bunkroom and full sofa bed, this home is perfect for multiple families or couples. The primary bedroom features a huge walk-in bathroom with a stand-alone spa tub for soaking and Zen tiled walk-in shower.

Looking for a way to fight off the fatigue of life’s demands? The lush tropical foliage, sun-drenched pool deck and the sound of waves lapping the shore at the beach nearby are just what your immune system needs to combat the stress of day-to-day life. Dine alfresco on the patio and enjoy use of the gas grill complemented by a wicker dining table for four and Ratana dining table for six. Endless memories of playing in the sand and surf, lounging by the community pool- just steps away, or shopping at Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlet Mall are waiting to be made! Plus, no matter how tired you may be after all that excitement, Great Expectations will be ready to welcome you back with its cheerful disposition.

As part of the Emerald Shores community, this Destin Vacation Rental enjoys some unique perks. This beach neighborhood is positioned between the main highway through town and the beach road with its spacious walking path providing easy access to the beach via the southern entrance or to the many restaurants and malls along Highway 98 / Emerald Coast Parkway via the northern entrance. Moreover, it’s a well forested community with swaying palms and native foliage that make it any enjoyable walk to one of the two community pools or the beach beyond.

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.

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