Our Aqua Vista home has 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 baths included in this magnificent 4,000 sq-ft Destin Vacation home, with breathtaking views of the Gulf, Bay and Lakes. This home features 3 decks, travertine marble flooring, granite counter-tops, built-in Entertainment Center (46” HDTV), 12” crown molding and a finished two-car garage, giving you the true feeling of quality but in a family friendly environment. The large open living area, open to the kitchen and dining area, is perfect for multi-generation family gatherings following a day at the beach, which is only steps away. This 5 bedroom vacation getaway has the same spaciousness of many six bedroom beach homes, so there is plenty of space for everyone. There are five bedrooms with an adjacent sleeping area connected to the master bedroom that sleeps an additional four people. This 5 bedroom house sleeps up to 20 people comfortably.

Spend the day relaxing on the beach, with the private gated access, or at the Olympic sized community pool just 20 steps away, or take advantage of the other exclusive community amenities such as sand volleyball, tennis or the club house. Sunrise and sunset lovers can take in the magnificent 360-degree view from the spacious fourth level martini deck for hours of entertainment

Terra Cotta is a family friendly neighborhood and is close to the Big Kahuna’s Water Park, golf, Destin's Boardwalk, shopping centers/outlets and within walking distance to many fine restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

2013 was our second year to stay at Aqua Vista, and it won't be our last. You can really, REALLY sleep lots of people in this vacation home, without using a futon or sleeper sofa. We slept 11 very comfortably. With 3 & 1/2 baths, we still were not climbing all over each other.



The home has recent updates (carpet, furniture coverings, minor maintenance). Zero trouble with the drains. Water heater failed, BUT was fixed in a few hours. Main level is very open, including a kitchen that 3-4 can hang & work in. And the kitchen, baths and beds were all very clean when we arrived.



Beach access is a "true" 2 minute walk. At the shoreline, head West for 400 feet to have YOUR OWN (public) beach nestled between two private beaches. No congestion. Enjoy your Destin beach vacation!

Siblings Vacation

  • 4 of 5
The house is a great location. House is plenty big. There are definitely plenty of beds if you have a large group. Ten were in our party, so the bathroom situation worked out great and we never ever felt cramped. The kitchen is supplied with what is basically needed other than it has no salt, pepper, etc. The two washing machines were great to have. The three decks were very enjoyable in the evening. Recommend that you have a car if you want to venture out because everything else is a distance. Short, short walking distance to the beach. Great bike/walking trail 1/2 block from the house. We rode our bikes to the Bass Pro shop on Emerald Parkway and found a huge outdoor mall. Publix grocery store is close to Bass Pro shop but pretty pricey. Recommend going to Walmart down the street but you need a car. We all truly enjoyed the home we rented and would recommend it for anyone that doesn't have a problem with stairs. It is not handicap friendly.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our group of thirteen but it had plenty of room for more. The living and kitchen area was large enough for us to be able to spend time together at mealtimes and in the evening after a day at the beach. The rooftop was wonderful at night with the cool breeze and the stars. The pool was conveniently located just across the street. We had a wonderful time. Anthony was very thoughtful and always available. The stairs were a little difficult for my 68 year old knees but everything else was great.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Every detail about our vacation was great from start to finish. Making a reservation was easy and the owner was more than helpful and answered all questions quickly. The house is beautiful and was large enough for our 4 families to have enough room and privacy and close enough to the beach to walk, even with small children. The beach is beautiful and clean. We will vacation here again in the future. VERY PLEASED.

Great family getaway

  • 4 of 5
This property was great for our family of 21 (12 grand kids and 9 adults). It was just as advertised on VRBO.
The pictures and video were right on. The owner was quite helpful in a very timely manner when we had questions.
There were plenty of activities for all ages in the local area.

Incredible house for a very large group!

  • 5 of 5
Extremely spacious house that can easily accommodate 20 people. The Aqua Vista VRBO description and listing was accurate so there were no surprises. Anthony was extremely timely with all communication and there was never a question unanswered so everything went smoothly. The top floor balcony was incredible with a great view of the Gulf and we were able to watch the July 4th fireworks without even leaving the house. We utilized the volleyball court and pool that was right outside the front door and the beach was only a few minutes walk. We had a house full of cross country runners and were able to access the running/bike path which was only 150 meters away. The dining/kitchen area was so spacious that we were all able to eat together as a group and not feel crowded. Having two washing machines and two dryers made doing laundry twice as fast and was pleasant surprise and a huge time saver.

We've stayed in the Destin area during the July 4th week each of the past few years with a large group but this year was by far the most relaxing due to the spaciousness and amenities of the Aqua Vista.
