Tips for Planning Your Destin Vacation

With many special events on the horizon such as a songwriting festival (January), gumbo festival (February), Spring Break (March), and sand volleyball week (April), now is a great time to snag early bird discounts on vacation rentals in Destin, FL.

  • Reserve Now. ¬†With so many terrific homes and condominiums to choose from, your options are greater if you can plan in advance using our recommend lodging partners. For example, Southern Vacation Rentals is offering 10% off new reservations for upcoming special events and discounted monthly rates for snowbirds. ¬†ResortQuest by Wyndham is offering a 20% discount on special winter rentals of 2+ days.

  • Explore Your Options. The websites of vacation rental companies help you easily navigate the possibilities. ¬†It’s recommended to use their search capabilities to help you find exactly what you are looking for in your vacation destination. ¬† For example, do you want a private pool or community pool? Hot tub or tennis courts? ¬†
  • Location, Location, Location. ¬†Once you decide on your beach location, enter your vacation dates and the total number of guests. ¬†Many rentals are Saturday-to-Saturday, but you can explore the online calendars for shorter stay options.¬†
  • View the Photos. ¬†Once you narrow down possibilities, take a good look at the online photographs for your potential rental. The photos will give you a good idea of location, decor, bedrooms, etc. ¬†If the listing says “beach view” or “gulf view”, you should be able to see a photo of what that view is like from the property.
  • Additional Reservations. ¬†Once you have nailed down your accommodations, you can move on to planning the “fun” of your vacation. ¬†If you want to go fishing, rent a paddle board, or schedule a round of golf, explore our Destin activities page to explore the possibilities.

So a little planning now will go a long way – especially when you finally arrive for your fun in the sun.
