“Welcome to The Dock Inn” ~

Whether you choose to arrive navigating the waterways to our dock with a private 42' upland slip, or arrive via vehicle, we want to ensure you receive a warm welcome to our waterfront “hidden jewel of a townhome” on Holiday Isle. Professionally managed locally 24/7 by iTrip Destin & Miramar Beach.

Calming, serene water views and sunny days, on our spacious sundeck overlooking the canal will not disappoint! We are fortunate to be one of the few, in the area, with a private 42' upland boat slip, capable of supporting a boat/yacht. Admire individuals on kayaks, paddleboards, jet skis, along with the yachts and boats, slowly cruising through the canal as they travel in & out of the harbor for their daily adventures. Take the stress out of driving and take full advantage of calling the Destin Water Taxi for a pick-up and drop-off, to and from our dock to a plethora of restaurants, shopping, water sports, & entertainment throughout the harbor.

Stroll .3 miles to the public beach access, Osteen Beach, or .5 miles to the private beach access at Norriego Point or Moreno Point, to enjoy the sugar-white sand between your toes & soak in the crystal-clear waters for a free dose of Vitamin D!

Upon arrival, the condo is a self-check-in residence with a private entry code allowing you to enjoy your vacation without the worry of misplacing your keys. When you enter the residence the first level hosts the Master Bedroom Suite and the Guest Master Bedroom. The third Guest Bedroom is on the upper-level with the open floor plan for entertaining; the kitchen overlooks the dining & living area which extends outside the sliding glass door to the upper-level sundeck.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and is well-equipped for all your needs. The dining room table has seating for (6), with counter seating for (3).

The showcase area of the house is the upper-level sundeck. Kick back and relax in (2) comfy swivel chairs with ottomans, or a sectional couch with seating for (5), a coffee table, and gas fire pit. The evenings are incredible under the stars or with the patio lights. If you are fortunate to stay with us on Thursday evenings, you can enjoy the free Destin Harbor Firework Show.

The upper-level exterior staircase leads down to the fully covered patio where you can enjoy some privacy in the (2) Adirondack chairs and small table for snacks and/or libations. This space also allows the family chef to master their skills on the BBQ.

This place has it all!
5/5 stars
Gulf Shore Drive #3 - The Dock Inn is roomy, newly renovated, furnished and nicely decorated. We loved it being in the 1st slough closest to the Destin Harbor Bridge and Crab Island. It was easy going in and out with our Sea Doo. The outdoor areas were inviting with nice composite wood, lounging furniture, party lights, a fire pit and grill. There was plenty of parking. We used the 240V outlet by the front door to charge our Tesla. There is a nice sidewalk and a green grass area along the road right in front to walk your dog. We had no issues walking to the beach. The drive on the way in was gorgeous. The iTrip Vacations team was very responsive before, during and after our visit. Thank you!
