This luxurious, three bedroom, three bath, Caribbean-style home is just 100 yards from the spectacular Gulf of Mexico. This beach retreat is approximately 2100 square feet of relaxing comfort and is ideally located in the private community of 'Waters Edge at Seacrest Beach', adjacent to upscale Rosemary Beach.

The upstairs kitchen, dining and living area is completely open and spacious with tall ceilings. The kitchen is a gourmet-chef's dream and is fully-equipped with state of the art stainless appliances. The living area is newly furnished with an overstuffed loveseat and sleeper sofa, and high-backed cushioned chair.

The entertainment center hosts a new flat screen High Definition Television with a DVD and surround-sound system. You can also plug your ipod directly into the entertainment system. You also have access to two outdoor porches which have gorgeous views. Walk out onto the larger porch and enjoy your morning brunch on casual outdoor furniture or in the evening, enjoy the breath-taking, colorful sunset from the west-facing deck.

The bedrooms are all very spacious and have ten-foot ceilings, each with it's own ceiling fan. No typical,cramped small vacation bedrooms in this beach house!! All bedrooms have flat screen High Definition televisions with DVD players.

The master suite is decorated with mahogany furnishings and a king-size, four-poster bed. French doors open to a private patio. The roomy master bath features 'his and hers' separate sinks and vanities, a Jacuzzi tub and a walk-in shower.

The other first floor suite has a king-size, iron-scroll bed and a large walk-in closet. This room has a full-sized private bath. Your view is to the east and overlooks the large, heated pool. The upstairs guest suite is tastefully furnished with casual, whitewashed furniture, a queen-size bed, and a full-size bath. Step out on either of two private porches and look eastward for a spectacular sunrise or an encompassing view of Rosemary Beach.

We have one of the largest pools in the neighborhood (12' x 20') with ample deck space and 4 comfortable lounge chairs for sun bathing.

And then tomorrow - wake up and do it all again!!

I had the pleasure to be a part of a group of six staying at this beautiful home during the second week of May. First of all, I must mention that the owners are accessible anytime for whatever needs or concerns that you may have during your stay; a true pleasure to work with from booking, arrival, and departure. The house is truly a "home" in every sense of the word. The gated neighborhood is safe with private entry to the beach, and provides secure in and out access to the shops and restaurants, whether walking or driving. As we entered the driveway, which has room for two vehichles, we immediately noticed the large pool and the top notch condition of the home exterior. This was just a preview of what awaits you on the inside. You enter the foyer and see right away how neat and tidy everything is kept. Two king bedrooms are featured on the ground level, both with high ceilings, fans, and large bathrooms. On the second level is the living room, large kitchen, and guest queen bedroom, with a roomy bathroom. Each bedroom has a flat screen tv, and the living room has a large flat screen also. The best way for me to describe this wonderful property is luxurious, very clean, and it is obvious the owners take great pride in providing a 5 star experience for their guests. We plan to return in the future, and I would highly recommend that you consider this "home" as part of your future vacation plan also. You can feel confident in the care that the owners provide in taking care of their home, and their clients. Did I mention that the beach, shops and restaurants are just steps away? You will have the vacation of a lifetime, whether you travel as couples or with family. What are you waiting for?!!!

We just returned from 10 amazing days with our family at Caribbean Dream! The owners were extremely accommodating and very easy to work with. Kathy texted us upon our arrival, welcoming us to Caribbean Dream and wishing us a wonderful vacation! There were no surprises...the house is as wonderful as the video/photos described. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated and furnished. The kitchen and living area are amazing...fully furnished and very comfortable! We enjoyed eating dinner in a few evenings...the kitchen is large and accommodated a "couple of cooks". The beach is a short walk away from the house with chairs and umbrella available each day! Our granddaughter swims on a couple swim teams so the private pool was a highlight for us. It was great returning from the beach in the afternoon to our own pool. Restaurants and shops are a short walking or driving distance away.

We have taken many vacations in the Destin area but would definitely recommend this home for rental. We really enjoyed the 30A area, away from the "commercial" busyness. We plan on returning with our family in the near future. Our thanks to the Ballars for their part in our priceless family memories!! Thanks for sharing your fabulous home!!

No Worries!

We just spent a wonderful week at Caribbean Dream. It had been 10 years since we last stayed at what has become our favorite vacation destination and the owners have kept it in great condition.Everything that you need is there. The kitchen is excellent for meal preparation with new appliances. The open upstairs allows for meals to be enjoyed inside or out.The short walk to the beach or the secure private pool made it easy for our grandkids to enjoy the water.Being located next to Rosemary Beach and with the shops and market across the street, use of a car is not even necessary while staying there.

In short, Caribbean Dream is extremely comfortable and a place that definitely feels like home to us.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from an amazing week at Caribbean Dream. From the beginning, the owners were very responsive to all communication and followed up to make sure our stay was a pleasant one.

The house was exactly as represented in the photos, even nicer. There were no surprises when we arrived. The house and pool were clean and well-maintained. There are two bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs. We did rent a baby gate for the stairs but still kept an eye on our toddler to make sure she stayed clear of the stairs. We brought our portable baby monitor from home since one of the bedrooms was on another floor.

The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in and we loved eating all our meals on the outdoor patio. With two small children we loved having the pool right outside our door and being able to run inside for snacks, potty breaks, etc... It was very secure in that it was not accessible from the house and the gate had to be opened by an adult. The beach was a short walk through the community - less than 5 minutes. Having the beach chairs set up for us everyday was a very nice convenience.

The property is located directly adjacent to Rosemary Beach so we didn't need bikes - we simply walked to the square for restaurants, coffee or ice cream.

Overall a wonderful home and a great location.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our two small children and it was fantastic. The kitchen is amazing and very well stocked with most of the basics. The upstairs balcony and pool are ideal for enjoying the weather. Water's Edge, the neighborhood, is ideally located in Rosemary Beach and makes it easy to get to the beach or any of the shops.

The only consideration might be that the bedrooms are on different floors (2 downstairs including master and 1 upstairs), which was fine for us as one of our kids sleeps in a crib. Just might be something to consider if you have two little children that get up at night, especially as there is not a gate for the top of the stairs.

Overall, this was a fantastic home to stay at and we are already planning on staying there again next year.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect distance to the beach. The pool was a ideally located in the front of the house so you could utilize it all afternoon in the shade! The kitchen was well stocked. We loved that we could walk to dinner each night. Everything was very convenient. We would highly recommend this house to our friends. Many thanks to the owners for making the stay and process super easy, and for creating such a beautiful vacation home.
