Many Destin vacationers embrace their dream “home away from home” at the beach and book their next stay one year in advance as they leave. Others book their reservations several months in advance, so there are usually very few properties that have availability for the summer season at the last minute. This year, however, we have these nine wonderful beach vacation rental properties that are still available to reserve for summer fun. They come in all shapes and sizes with the ability to sleep between six to twenty-five happy beachgoers. Here is a brief look in ascending order of bedrooms – so you may choose a perfect one for your group!
Crystal Sands 211A
1 Bedrooms / 1.5 Bathrooms / 6 Guests
Crystal Sands 211A is a bright lovely one-bedroom condo overlooking the wide white ribbon of crystalline shore on Scenic Highway 98. There is also a community pool on site. This locale is close to popular gulf front restaurants and friendly beach bars along this route. The gracious setting would be the perfect place for a romantic rendezvous; however, the addition of bunks beds tucked off the hallway, and a queen-sized sleeper sofa can accommodate six for an intimate family beach vacation.
