Seize the day or “Carpe Diem” is a verb in Latin that is defined: 1. “to enjoy the present and live for the moment” and 2. “To make the most of today by achieving fulfillment in a philosophical or spiritual sense.” The play on words here for Seas the Day is intended since you may fulfill these dreams in this lovely gracious waterfront home on Holiday Isle in Destin. Warm precious memories with family and friends may be created here for up to 15 guests. It is a highly sought after 4 bedroom vacation rental residence since a canal dock beside the home allows you to cruise out into the glistening gulf. (You may rent a discounted pontoon boat through our complimentary Reef Rewards program at Harborwalk Village nearby.) A sparkling swimming pool sits beside the canal so you may take a refreshing dip as well. This classic post modern Floridian styled home was one of the first on Holiday Isle but has been renovated and updated with modern creature comforts. The nautical white and blue exteriors accented by a picket fence provide a warm laid back appeal.
The downstairs has a separate Guest Quarters apart from the rest of the house including a Master Bedroom Suite with a full bath and living area with a kitchenette. A queen size sleeper sofa and old fashioned rocking chair face a wall mounted TV. This separate quarters is also just steps away from the swimming pool on the first level.
The spacious main living area and three other bedrooms are on the second floor. Oversized parchment tile accented with dark ebony decorative corner tiles flows throughout the open Great Room, which encompasses the living, dining and kitchen areas. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances that include an island top gas range and a side-by-side refrigerator. The kitchen island has six black button topped stools that are straddled alongside to enjoy favorite drinks and snacks. A “L” shaped retro couch and an accent chair face a long credenza that may double as a bar with a flat screen TV mounted above. A raised round honey toned hardwood table nearby has four matching stools for additional seating or games. Eight more may be seated around the formal dining table at the far end of the room.
Sliding glass doors lead out to a covered porch with a picnic table and rocking chairs where you may enjoy views out over the water and the pool below. This porch is connected to an open sun deck, which overlooks the watery scenery and has steps that can take you down to the pool to cool off after tanning. The Master Bedroom off the main living area has a full private bath en suite and a walk in closet. The other two Guest Rooms have access to a full hall bath that doubles as a convenient Powder Room. One of them is a kid’s Bunk Room.
This awesome Holiday Isle location is minutes away from the beautiful beach, delightful dining at Harborwalk Village, drinks at friendly dock front bars and water recreational sports.
