Holiday Surf & Racquet Club

Destin, Florida Panhandle, Florida, United States

While it seems par for the course with condo accommodation in the area, Holiday Surf and Racquet Club's outdated decor looks as if it could belong in the home of someone's retired Floridian grandparents. However, the 86 large, individually decorated and updated (or not) units are perfect for long stays, privacy-seeking couples, young groups of friends, or families.Full kitchens, personal screened-in patios, and non-existent room service give guests maximum privacy and self-sufficiency. Direct access to sugar sand beach and gulf waters, on-site activities, and close proximity to local attractions ensure guests have plenty to do during their stays.
