“Margarita Villa” is located in the coveted Destiny Beach Villas in Crystal Beach. Swim in the clear emerald waters of the Gulf, hop the waves, sunbathe in the Florida sun, play in the powder-like white sands of the Emerald Coast beaches. Then return for a dip in the welcoming pool!

This unit is a whole-home rental, which includes both the upper and lower units. This provides a total of 4 bedrooms, 2 of which are masters with ensuite baths, 2 spacious decks, 2 kitchens, 2 living areas, and 2 dining areas. It is an ideal layout for a big family vacation, a friend-cation, and for extended families. If extra privacy is desired, there is a lockout door to separate the lower/upper units. There are separate HVAC systems and hot water heaters for each level for maximum comfort control.

Get some work done, attend virtual meetings online school while visiting! We have high-speed 1 gigabit Internet service with the latest mesh WiFi technology. This lets many devices be online without interference.

Up to 4 vehicles are permitted in the parking lot. Spaces are not assigned. If you choose to rent a golf cart, it counts as one of the 4 permitted vehicles. Permits *must* be displayed or vehicles will be towed. Located directly across from the beach, the community vigorously enforces this to ensure there is sufficient parking for residents and guests.

From the villa, it is only 200 paces from the front door to the tremendous Gulf beaches with powdery white sand and emerald waters. You can use the pedestrian tunnel to pass under the street to avoid crossing the street. If you are an early riser, the sunrises can be magnificent. Otherwise, be sure to catch our famous sunsets on the beach. There is a kids playground on the beach, in front of The Crab Trap, located just across from the community. 

If you are flying in, or have a full vehicle already, you'll like that we provide high-quality beach chairs with straps, 2 beach wagons, toys, and beach towels. No need to buy them just to pitch before leaving.

The rear of the home is on the edge of Four Prong Lake with 2 decks to relax and enjoy the Florida beach weather and the water view. The fresh-water lake is generally so clear that you can see the bottom for quite some ways out from shore. You can see the fish and, later in the day, the turtles become active. No swimming though. Fishing is not allowed on the property but is allowed, with permit, on the beach.

Take a short walk, about 50 steps, to the community pool. The pool area includes restrooms with showers, as well as plenty of seating. It is heated from February 15 through March 31. Pool hours are 8:00 am to 10:00 pm daily.

Tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished throughout, Margarita Villa's bedrooms and living areas are each equipped with an HDTV and connected Roku streaming device; just bring your own logins from your favorite streaming services or your cable provider. The kitchens are well-equipped with the glassware, dinnerware, serving ware, and cookware needed to create meals for your group. You will also find coffee bars with drip brewers, k-cup makers, electric kettles, and an espresso machine. And, of course, Margarita glasses (Margaritas not included).

At night, prepare to sleep well in the 2 Master bedrooms w/ensuite baths, or use the extra bedroom with a queen and twin bed while the kids all gather in the bunk bed room (2x twin-over-full bunks). All mattresses are comfortable, highly rated, and we provide plenty of pillows!

You can, of course, find many other online sources of travel protection policies and are not at all required to purchase from us or the marketplace hosting our listing..

We are not a party, in any way, to the travel insurance policies and we receive nothing from the purchase of a policy.

— THINGS TO KNOW —

We use multiple noise interior and exterior noise monitoring devices to ensure that we, or our guests, do not violate City of Destin noise ordinances and the prohibition of parties and events. If the noise level exceeds acceptable levels, we will contact you.

There are also security cameras in the front of the home, without any interior views.

We enjoy hosting and sharing our home with others. We have been hosting for several years and garnered many 5-star reviews, letters expressing appreciation, and repeat guests.

  5. Drugs and other illegal activities are not welcome and will be reported.
  6. Third-party bookings are not accepted.
  7. Intentional damage to the home or its contents is not tolerated.

We like to be sure our guests have read the whole description. Please mentioned "Destin Rocks!" in your inquiry to confirm this for us.

Cancellation Policy: Guest receives 97.00 % if cancellation occurs at least 60 days before arrival; No refunds within 60 days of arrival.

When we found Destiny Beach Villas, we couldn't wait until one came up for sale. When it did, we jumped on it. We love the location with it's proximity to the beach and lakefront views. It is also within minutes of a variety of restaurants, attractions, retail stores, and more beaches!

The upper unit has been recently remodeled into a luxury unit, with incredible touches throughout. Then, we decided to share our home by renting it so others could enjoy it as much as we do.

Parking is unassigned and limited to a total of 4 vehicles, including any rented golf carts. Parking passes *MUST* be displayed or vehicles will be towed. As we are across from the beach and the public parking lot, the parking is aggressively patrolled to ensure spaces are available for owners, residents, and guests.
