Where to stay in Destin

I am planning a trip to Destin area around 5/12. We have never been to Destin and are looking for a rental house. I would really like somewhere that the beaches aren't as crowded. We have been to Morgantown in Fort Morgan Al the past two years and love the atmosphere...private beach with a 15 min drive to nice restaurants and attractions, etc. But have heard the beaches in Destin are beautiful. Would like to find a small community within 15-30 min drive to Destin? Someone please give me some advice.

On the right side of this page, Top Questions about Destin, Which Destin Condo Should We Stay? If you start there, you may be able to narrow things down a bit.

You might want to check out Navarre Beach. It's pretty undeveloped but not too far from it all. It's sort of in the middle of Pensacola and Destin. There are condos and houses to choose from there, but not too many condo buildings like other areas.

We stay at the far west end of Fort Walton Beach/Okaloosa Island. Love it cause it is a dead end road, adjacent to miles of undeveloped beach (military owned). There's also a height restriction so no real tall high rises... which keeps numbers down on the beach, too. It's only a few minutes from Destin. The very last resort is where we stay : The El Matador. Very family friendly.
