Welcome to Splash! This vacation rental is an investor's dream come true, being one of the best (if not THE best) renting properties anywhere. As of today, the 2022 bookings are already over $600K....which is the base rent only. It already has over $70K booked for 2023! In addition to the rent, a substantial amount of additional income is generated by ancillary fees and services. Boasting the largest private, resort-style pool in Destin, it has another unique asset which almost no other home in the area can offer. As it is PERMANENTLY grandfathered by the Bert Harris act, it is not subject to the restrictive occupancy & parking ordinances recently imposed by the City of Destin (please see the attached document). Most other rental homes which have achieved this status, are onlygrandfathered for 5 years....with only 2-3 years remaining. This one is forever, guaranteeing continued higher revenue in the future. Sleeping 34 people, it's ideal for large reunions, weddings, parties, retreats and such. Splash also offers a beautiful outdoor kitchen & fireplace, 3 full-size washers & dryers, numerous refrigerators & ice machines, a huge open living area with lots of room for dining, 7 balconies, a sunken bar in the pool (with 12 underwater chairs), huge garage, game room and a 4th story rooftop deck so you can enjoy sunset every day. The home is just steps to the beach, walking distance to restaurants and close to shopping, golf, dining and all activities our beautiful paradise has to offer! Because the owners have decided to voluntarily make some improvements and upgrades (for example, adding a roof to the third floor balcony, decorative tile work in the outdoor kitchen and changing some stone work around the pool), they are NOT PERMITTING SHOWINGS UNTIL COMPLETION on February 8th. You may submit an offer contingent upon a personal inspection. Proof of funds must accompany any offers and a CRSP-16 is preferred.
