Nowhere near the Cape, yet just as beachy and blissful, Nantucket Rainbow Cottages will host you 350ft (100m) away from Crystal Sands Beach. These quaint and colorful apartments have plenty of space for kids and adults to play when you all return from the beach or pool. Destin Commons is 0.5mi (0.8km) away. Here, you can buy groceries to bring back to your kitchen or dive into beer-battered cod at the underwater-themed Uncle Buck’s FishBowl & Grill.

Pretend that you live in paradise at this charming, coastal five-bedroom home. Stark whites, beachy blues and seaside decor surround you with Gulfside Florida charm. Live like a local, and wake up to a cup of Bad Ass Coffee, hop on a FantaSea Rental Scooter, and zip up and down Scenic Highway 88 as you seek out that special spot for an envy-inducing selfie – perhaps the quartz sands of James Lee Beach?
Ocean View Abode Luxurious 4 Bd, Walk to Beach
Does a shopping spree sound like the perfect reprieve from the sun and sand? This luxurious four-bedroom vacation home on Miramar Beach places you within a few paces of the shore and across the street from the Silver Sands Premium Outlets. Spend the morning picking out some new swimwear, then give it a dry (wet?) run back at the pool before you debut it on the white-sand beach.
6 Bd Tropical Getaway With Pool & Beach Access
A private pool, instant beach access and room for 21 of your closest friends? Sounds like the perfect place for a party. Celebrate with space and comfort on the balcony, terrace or poolside patio of this three-story holiday home. Hopefully, someone remembered to bring a ball to toss around on the sand, but, if you’re coming up short on something to kick, dig or catch, you’re only a short drive from shopping opportunities in Downtown Destin.
Grand Caribbean Condominiums

Take as few steps to the pool as humanly possible at this ground-floor one-bedroom poolside condo. With the beach also right across the street, you and your crew of six might as well sleep with your swimwear on. You’ll also be thankful your mate refused to leave his rod and reel behind when he’s cooking up a fresh catch on the community grills. Buy a round next time your group wanders over for afternoon beers to the Crab Trap.

Surrounded by shopping, golf, thrill rides and the beach, the spacious poolside villas at the Palms of Destin puts you within the grasp of everywhere you want to be.
