Destiny sometimes refers to someone being “at the right place at the right time.” In Destin it takes on a whole other meaning which refers to a gorgeous upscale, gated community on the Gulf of Mexico which is called Destiny West, Destiny East and Destiny by the Sea. Most of the beautiful homes here are Mediterranean styled, multimillion dollar mansions, many of which are beachfront properties. However, Ocean Reef is pleased to be able to offer some outstanding private vacation rental properties here with great values at a small complex called Destiny Beach Villas. The location of these villas is awesome since they are nestled between a pristine coastal dune lake called Lake Destiny and the James Lee Park on Scenic Gulf Drive which overlooks the jewel toned waters. The Destiny Beach Villas have sweeping, unobstructed views of the coastal dune lake towards the north and the emerald green gulf towards the south. The James Lee Park on the beach has a long seaside promenade with multiple beach walkovers. It features a Victorian styled building that looks like an old fashioned pavilion and is known as The Crab Trap restaurant which serves delicious seafood.
Fabulous amenities abound here at the Destiny Beach Villas which are available to all of our Ocean Reef guests. They include the use of refreshing community pool. There is also a charming gazebo to catch the ocean breeze as well as a lushly landscaped pool deck to enjoy the sun.
(update- starting 2012 Destin Beach Villas no longer have access to the club house)There is also a Caribbean styled, 5,000 square foot Club House that redefines tropical elegance. Known as Club Destiny to the residents here, it has soaring cathedral ceilings, rich wood flooring, multiple seating areas, skylights, walls of windows and even some towering indoor palm trees. There is a long bar in one room and an outdoor kitchen near the lagoon shaped swimming pool. The club house also comprises a state of the art fitness center with expansive walls of windows that look out onto the beautifully landscaped grounds. It also houses an impressive private movie theater that seats twenty-five. The club house can be booked separately for special receptions or reunion parties which makes this a perfect spot for a beach wedding. Besides the pool there is also a secluded Jacuzzi hot tub, twin lighted tennis courts and a putting green. Nearby is a wonderful playground for the kids which sits on a white sandy area complete with slides, swings and colorful climbing platforms for fun filled, adolescent make believe exploration.
Although Destiny itself is comprised of many mansions and large second homes for its fortunate residents, the Destiny Beach Villas are cozy, charming and very affordable. In fact these properties are some of the best values available from Ocean Reef to our devoted patrons and their guests.
