FABULOUS GULF FRONT VIEW: GREAT FOR FAMILIES!

Beach Retreat Condos Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This pet friendly, non-smoking unit, located in the Beach Retreat Condominium complex, is exceptional. One of the largest one bedroom floor plans in the area, the 945 square feet gulf front unit sleeps six and boasts a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The expansive living area overlooks the white sugar sands of Miramar Beach and the sound of the crashing waves on the shore fill the space. The fourth floor balcony offers chaise lounges and a table and chairs for morning coffee or a relaxing afternoon with a good book.

The watercolor inspired décor offers a luxurious master suite for adults while offering a child friendly atmosphere for the easy comfort of vacation living with the kids. The suite also features a private bath and an entertainment center with ample storage housing a 27-inch TV and DVD player. The cozy bunkroom space is perfect for the children -- complete with TV/DVD/VCR combo unit for their own nighttime entertainment. A queen-size sleeper sofa accommodates additional guests.

Destin offers unlimited dining opportunities, but if staying in is your preferred dining experience, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for an extended vacation stay. The dining table accommodates six and the bar comfortably seats an additional four.

The unit boasts ten foot ceilings, tile floors in the living, kitchen and hallway areas, central heating and air conditioning, a kitchen pantry, full size washer and dryer, trash chutes and on-site security.

The beautiful Tuscan exterior of this four story, 44-unit complex accentuates the luxurious living accommodations. The Beach Retreat complex features 300 feet of private gulf frontage, a 3,000 square foot heated pool, whirlpool, fitness center, barbecue grills, picnic area and sundeck, all surrounded by the lush tropical Florida landscape.

We would love to have you and appreciate you considering our place! And if others are traveling with you or you'd like a larger space, we also have a 3-bedroom poolside cottage right next door in Maravilla. Email me for cottage rates.

Growing up in Alabama, the Florida Panhandle was always our choice for a beach get-away. When we were younger, Destin was a sleepy little community with the most beautiful white sandy beaches and very little to do. Over the years, we've watched it grow into a beautiful beach resort community with the finest accommodations, dining, shopping and wonderful family acitivites. We've enjoyed a family cottage in Destin for many, many years, and added our ocean view condominium just a few years ago. The sun, the sound of the ocean, the sea breeze and the feel of the smooth white sand beneath your feet just does something to relax the soul and we find that peace everytime we are there.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Beach Retreat is in the Miramar Beach area in between the city limits of Destin and the SanDestin Beach Resort area. We enjoy the convenience of having great shopping and restaurants just a few miles in either direction and the incredible ocean views without the hustle and bustle of downtown. The low rise, Italian look of the exterior and one of the largest one-bedroom floor plans with high ceilings was also a plus, but the view and the 3000 square foot swimming pool sealed the deal.

We most enjoy the view and sound of the surf from our balcony. Our children most enjoy building sandcastles, searching for sea shells, snorkeling, the volleyball games that pick up along the beach, and boating in the bay. We also enjoy riding our bikes along the bike and walking trail to a park just a few miles away, and often will stop by the sidewalk cafe for a smoothie on the way back. The family concerts at Baytowne are wonderful in the evenings and the movies are close by as well.

GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely condo. Perfect for 2 people but can see where a small family would do fine. Great location with very nice view. Owners clearly care about your experience and respond quickly to any issues or needs that you have.

WE LOVED THIS UNIT! PERFECT VIEW.

This condo was perfect for our family of four. We saw dolphins on several mornings of our stay. The beach service is an added bonus. Michelle was great to work with.

BUNK ROOM VERY CUTE

  • 4 of 5
We stayed two weeks in this lovely condo. It was very nice and had most everything you would need in the kitchen. I would like to suggest that some of the throw pillows on the beds be removed. You have to put them in the closet and that limits the space for your clothes and they keep falling out. The view of the gulf is wonderful!!! Linda

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay at our place and for the feedback. We are doing a little redecorating right now, so we may bring a few throw pillows home. I just love a plush bed!

GREAT LOCATION & VIEW!

GREAT LOCATION & VIEW!
  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in several condos in the Destin area over the past several years and this was the BEST location.We went for some R&R and to celebrate our 36th anniversary.The condo was perfect for the two of us. Comfortable, homey, nicely decorated and CLEAN!!! Upon arrival at most of the others, it was necessary to do some touch up cleaning up before we settled in which was disappointing. Not here. Also, before departing most condos have a long list of "must dos". Though not required, we did strip the beds and straightened up a bit to help out the cleaning people in appreciation for the great job they did for us. There were plenty of nice towels & linens.There was also laundry & dish detergent, hand soap, xtra trash bags & coffee condiments. Totally unexpected but appreciated.We had brought most of those things with us so we just left ours for the next person. Including the beach chairs was a plus! The only negative,one clothes hanger. We picked up three packs (30) @ Walmart and left them for the next occupant. We once locked ourselves out and couldn't remember the code but thankfully Michelle answered her phone when we called and rescued us. Thank you Michelle! We love the grouper and key lime pie @ the Back Porch and go there every time we go to Destin. This is a very good rental and we will recommend it to our friends. When a one bedroom is all we need, we will come back to this one. Thanks again Michelle and please thank your cleaning staff for a job well done! Blessings to you & your family.....

BEST PLACE TO RELAX!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was perfect for our family. We took our two daughters and two pups for a 4 day stay and we liked it so much we wanted to stay longer. The condo is decorated in a modern open manner that really helps set the atmosphere for a relaxing vacation. The beach and view were beautiful as was the pool. The outlet mall was a great surprise! We did find the restaurant prices were high but the servings are huge so we know to share next visit. Loved the walking path along scenic 98 as we walked twice a day with our dogs. The dog area was surprising due to its small size and it had no grass, only pine needles. The people we met were friendly and we felt like it was home.
