Where to Stay

Thanksgiving is a time to gather with the ones you love and reminisce about all the reasons you have to be Thankful, so why not add one more item of gratitude to your list: a Thanksgiving celebration at the beach in one of our beautiful Thanksgiving vacation rentals? Not only will you enjoy the white sand beaches, welcoming atmosphere (that only the ocean breezes can provide), and a luxurious home to wind down in, but you’re also able to return to a clean home and kitchen that took a year off from the holiday chaos (ahem) Thanksgiving traditions. We’ve compiled some of our favorite Destin and 30A vacation rentals for your holiday trip, from high-end kitchens to seating and entertainment, the vacation home for your next great Thanksgiving tradition is ready and waiting.


With enough space for 14 guests, this 5-bedroom and 4-bath home has everything you need to have the Thanksgiving that everyone will remember for years to come. Located in the Destiny by the Sea community, not only is the beach a short 2-minute walk, but the 360-degree rooftop sunset view is pure heaven. And did we forget to mention, there’s a pool up there too!

What makes this a great vacation rental for Thanksgiving in Destin? Preparing  dinner, keeping the family entertained, and having the space to stretch out while enjoying that special November meal, this home checks every box. To keep family and guests comfortable and entertained, this home has two living rooms, multiple patios, a roof-top pool and six TV’s. And because the most important part of Thanksgiving is undeniably the dinner itself, this home has everything needed to prepare a delicious meal in a full chef’s kitchen. Cooking Thanksgiving dinner in this kitchen means enjoying high-end stainless steel appliances, room to prep and serve on oversized countertops and island space, and multiple options for seating.

Oasis has it all and was an easy addition to our favorites list for Destin vacation rentals for a Thanksgiving to remember.
