Destin Beaches and Vacation Rentals Now Open

Yes, the rumors are true, beaches as well as the vacation rentals in Destin, FL are OPEN! We are just as excited as you are to hear that wonderful news. It seems like one more step closer to our new “normal”. They are open with social distancing practices still in place. The only activities prohibited at this moment is groups of more than 10 and must remain 6ft apart.

While you are staying with us, it is important to know what may or may not be open as well as to what capacity they are serving customers. Currently, we are in “Full Phase 1” which consists of:

  • Restaurants and food establishments to serve patrons at indoor seating up to 50% of the establishment’s seating capacity.

If you would like more information on “Full Phase One”, you may visit: http://www.myfloridalicense.com/DBPR/emergency/ 

Even though beaches and vacation rentals are open in Destin, FL area (this includes Okaloosa County and Walton County), there are some guidelines we do have to follow to obey the state as well as the county’s ordinances.

#BookDirect Top 10!

We are so dedicated to educating our guests, we were actually named in Intel Magazine as one of the Top 10 social media accounts in the nation advocating for the movement. This is something we are proud of because like stated before, we want to give our guests a wonderful vacation experience at the best value possible.

The Meaning Behind #BookDirect

#bookdirect

This movement was put together by Amy Hinote at VRM Intel. Its purpose is to educate guests about the perks of “bypassing third-party channels to book directly with management companies and homeowners”.

Not only are vacation rental owners facing the same issues regarding the often high commissions set by listing sites, but also guests themselves frequently end up paying a lot more for the same stay. Most guests often do not realize the high and unnecessary fees third party booking sites, such as VRBO, may charge. This is why the #BookDirect movement may be more important than people realize. As consumers, you have a lot more power than you realize and that’s why we find it necessary to educate and inform all of our customers on how they can get the most value.

Get All The Perks You Can Get!

FREE VIP Perks

When travelers speak directly with the owner/property manager, they will be the first to find out about special offers, discounts or exclusive deals. For example, here at Destin Palms Vacations, we offer all our guests FREE passes to activities in the area like snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, dolphin cruises, golf, and more EVERY DAY of your stay! When booking with us you will also receive a $100 credit for condos or $200 credit for houses to use towards Live Well 30A beach gear, rentals, experiences, and souvenirs! *Some restrictions may apply. The property managers will also be able to assist those with certain needs such as handicap accessible features or help those that may need pet-friendly accommodations.

Why Fall Is A Great Time To Visit The Beach

Why Fall Is A Great Time To Visit The Beach

When the kids go back to school and the college football games come on tv, it is officially Fall! In most areas, the temperatures start to become a lot cooler and the leaves start to fall. But not in Destin, FL! That is why Fal is a great time to visit the beach. The crowds will start to tremendously die down while the water and temperature remain warm until mid-November.  In this blog, we will discuss a couple of reasons why Fall is a great time to visit the beach.

Why Fall is A Great Time To Visit The Beach

SAVE, SAVE, SAVE!! 

Why Fall Is A Great Time To Visit The Beach- Save, Save, Save!!

Since Fall time is when a lot of families have children that have to go back to school, as well as college students, this is the time when vacation rentals will cut the prices. Here at Destin Palms Vacations, we are offering 25% off all our vacation rentals for Fall stays. You get to experience all the great same amenities and weather in the summer but for less! This may be also great for parents who want to have a small getaway from the kids for the weekend.

All The Fun Without The Hustle & Bustle 

Reasons why Fall is a great time to visit the beach- No crowds

Another reason why Fall is a great time to visit the beach is that you basically get the beach to yourself! You do not have to worry about getting up at the crack of dawn to get the prime spot right at the water. You will get to enjoy the beautiful water and soft sand without worrying about the disruptions around you. Also, in Destin, a lot of our most popular restaurants stay open all year round.  Your family and friends will be able to enjoy fresh seafood from the Gulf without the wait.

If you have ever been to Destin in the Summer then you know traffic can be a major annoyance. Destin is not a large area but yet is so beautiful so who doesn’t want to visit when they have a chance? But in the Fall you do not have to worry about that as much either. You will be able to come and go as you please, instead of strategically planning your trips out and about.

Festivals!

Here in Destin, we have several festivals you can attend in the Fall. The Destin Seafood Festival and The Destin Fishing Rodeo are the most popular ones and are hosted in the month of October. We go into further detail about these two events in another blog and the link is posted below.

Destin Seafood Festival & Fishing Rodeo 2019

The rest of the festivals are also great and plenty of activities for the Fall which is another great reason why Fall is a great time to visit the beach.
