Vacations at Destin Pointe on Holiday Isle provide a dazzling experience at the beach. This exclusively gated residential enclave has a premier location at the far western end of Holiday Isle, which is Destin's version of island living since it is surrounded on all three sides by jewel-toned waters. It borders Destin’s Harbor towards the north, East Pass on the west side and the vast expanse of the gulf with endless views into the southern horizon. The sugary shoreline wraps around this privileged community which is centered upon two natural coastal dune lakes named Caroline and Christina. Coastal Dune Lakes are quite precious since they are found hardly anywhere else in the world. Their magical composition of salted fresh water attracts abundant wildlife including fish, Great Blue Herons, Snowy White Egrets, Seagulls, Ducks, and seasonal Pelican visitors. Many residents and guests experience stunning views across the lovely lakes and the waters beyond.
East Pass is Destin’s only opening between the Gulf and Choctawhatchee Bay. Known as the “World's Luckiest Fishing Village” due to this unique location, Destin is home to the nation’s largest private charter fleet because of the cornucopia of fish. From early morning till twilight you may watch the fishing boats or big yachts departing to the gulf and returning to the harbor. The Destin Jetties at East Pass attract colorful tropical fish and snorkeling here is a popular pursuit. Many people enjoy fishing off the jetties when they are not snorkeling, swimming in the gulf, sunbathing on the beach or strolling around the tropically landscaped neighborhood.
Destin Pointe also features a sparkling swimming pool, a playground, shuffleboard and tennis courts which makes it a very friendly family destination. In addition, fabulous fireworks are shot off over East Pass on a weekly basis during the summer season and during major holidays, which can easily be seen. Many of our Ocean Reef guests pack a picnic basket, amble down to the beach with their kids, throw up some chairs or spread a blanket and enjoy the show from there while sipping their favorite drinks.
We are proud to offer two fantastic vacation homes at Destin Pointe: “The Lonestar Sandcastle” overlooks a beautiful coastal dune lake with views of East Pass in the distance while “Land Zen” sits upon a sugar white dune beside the gorgeous gulf.
The Lonestar Sandcastle is a brand new home with five bedrooms and the ability to sleep up to twelve pampered guests. It defines casual coastal elegance with a combination of creature comforts and upscale furnishings. The décor includes nautical themes, lovely seascapes, and tropical Floridian flair. The charming Old Florida architectural design includes spacious columned porches with outdoor furniture on the two upper floors that overlook the breathtaking seascape and allows you to enjoy the lake views while enjoying drinks or dining al fresco. The sunny Great Room has a triple set of double glass doors leading out to one of these breezy porches and provides views from the interior. This open living area includes a comfortable seating ensemble with two couches and accent chairs that face a flat screen TV. The large creamy white kitchen features gleaming top of the line stainless steel appliances, a culinary island, as well as a custom built Wet Bar with a wine rack and additional refrigeration. A dining table nearby has eight white spindle-backed chairs while a game table on the other side of the room has seats for four more. This level includes two charming Guest Bedrooms that share a full hall bath. One has a king sized bed with direct balcony access while the other is a fun Kid’s Bunk Room. Two other lovely Guest Bedrooms on the third floor with king sized beds feature full en suite baths and have individual balcony access.

Land Zen is a large lovely home that cheerfully embraces its guests with a countenance that includes canary colored exteriors and creamy white-columned porches on two levels. Its fantastic location overlooking the gulf is steps away from a sparkling pool and beside a grassy lawn with lounging arbors along with a walk over to the beach. Enchanting sunsets occur right over the gulf from mid-October into March and over East Pass the rest of the year. An open Great Room incorporates the living, dining and kitchen areas which seamlessly blend together for entertainment. Multiple sets of double glass doors accessing the beach front balcony accentuate this space with a light, bright look. A plush white couch and two chic chairs provide a comfortable seating ensemble facing a large wall-mounted TV for viewing pleasure. The tropically inspired dining area has eight woven straw chairs beside the table placed beneath a charming coach lantern. Four raised chairs wrap around a granite topped bar that faces the open kitchen with chocolate colored custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. A nautical Bunk Room on this level has access to a full bath. The Master Bedroom and other well-appointed guest suites on the top level all have full en suite baths. The Master Suite includes a romantic gulf front balcony and a private luxury bath with double vanities, a soaking tub along with a separate shower.
Destin Pointe makes you feel like you are experiencing island living far away from everything yet it is surprisingly close to everything Destin has to offer. Harborwalk Village on the marina is minutes away where restaurants abound along with lively waterfront bars, musical entertainment, seasonal festivals and of course fireworks. Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive reduced rates for water recreation rentals, pontoon boats, dinner or dolphin watching cruises and even an adventure on a large replica of a pirate ship. Our complimentary Reef Rewards program also provides special discounts at the Big Kahuna's Water Park which is also close by. They feature refreshing fun amidst waterfalls, water slides, “Lazy River” tubing, thrill rides and miniature golf on a lushly landscaped tropical course.
