In 1997, we were lucky enough to live in this area for a year, before being transferred out for work. While here, we fell in love with the Emerald Coast, and have vacationed here often ever since. We have always wanted to have a vacation and potential retirement home here, and finally found this perfect home to fulfill our dreams.
Dear Owners -- Thank you, thank you, thank you! We truly appreciate that you all made an exception and allowed such a large family reunion occur in your home. Every detail was appreciated from the razors in the showers to the built-in blinds in the doors. Your home is beautifully decorated and truly comfortable. Thank you for allowing us to experience such a beautiful environment. We will definitely return! God bless you all, The Roman Family (This comment was originally entered by our guest into the Guest Book located at the Emerald Coast Retreat and has been faithfully transcribed into this on-line format).
Emerald Coast Retreat blew our group away from the minute we drove up to the property. The three story beach house has balconies on every floor, two decks for dining/BBQing, and a community pool steps away. The interior is spacious on every floor with high ceilings and beautiful decorations. All the rooms were as we expected, comfortably sleeping our 20 person group without any sleeper sofas. The owner also provided many extras amenities like pool toys, keurig cups, beach towels, and mini toiletries in the bathrooms. Since we didn't rent a car we were able to use Amazon Pantry to order non-perishable food for our group. The CVS and Winn Dixie were both a short distance a way for all of our other needs. We were able to walk to the beach everyday (only a block away) to enjoy the beautiful white sand and clear blue water! An overall amazing experience for our group from Maryland! Hopefully we will get an opportunity to get together and visit Emerald Coast Retreat again someday!
We loved Kristen's beautiful house and appreciated all the extras! The house is decorated beautifully while remaining cozy and relaxing. It was actually much larger than I was expecting ! Many extras ( Keurig w k cups, razors, beach toys, board games, movies, wii w/ games, snacks) ...were there for us to enjoy. We liked the lay-out of 3 separate floors so each of the 3 families had some separate space, but we loved that we could all enjoy the living spaces downstairs and never felt crowded. All the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed playing cards nightly at the large table. Location is quiet w no traffic but close enough to get to restaurants and shopping. Easy walk to the beach and Alvin's Island. We contacted the chair/umbrella service that Kristen gave the number to, and that worked great- nice to always have a space waiting and set up! Kristen was great to work with from first email to letter w/ prompt deposit refund! The pool was next door and as other reviewers mentioned there was never anyone in it but us. The beach was beautiful and not crowded and easy to get to. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived and our expectations were exceeded! We all said we would return and would recommend to our friends and families!
I consider myself a fairly well-rounded traveler and I would definitely return to this house! Great location in a great area! Destin/Miramar Beach has the most beautiful beaches and water out of anywhere that I have visited in the US.
This house has everything you need!! Plenty of room for your whole family to sleep. Great open kitchen and family room allows enough space for everyone to get together and eat/watch tv/play games.
Location was also great. 5-15 drive to groceries and any kind of restaurant you wanted. The kids ranged from ages 2-20 and they all found something to keep them entertained during this vacation.
The pool is right next door and we had it mostly to ourselves the whole week. We usually went to the beach in the morning (about a 10 minute walk) and then would come back and enjoy the pool in the afternoon while our little one took a nap. There was one or two days when there was at most 3 other people in the pool, but there is more than enough chairs and tables for everyone.
The owners were fantastic to work with and I would recommend their home to anyone!! I hope to make it back soon!
Our family tries to get together every few years since we live from Oregon to Florida and all in-between. It is hard to find an affordable house big enough for my 5 children, 7 grandchildren, spouses, my husband, me, and my elderly mother. One of my daughter-in-laws found this home and it was perfect!
We had a wonderful time playing games at the house, swimming at the pool directly next door, going to the beach, shopping, and had so many places to visit including para-sailing!
The home is very well stocked with everything we needed and it is beautifully furnished too!
Thank you so much for the fabulous vacation!

This was our 3rd annual family trip to Destin and our second year in Kristen's beautiful beach home. Just as last year, the house was impeccable upon our afternoon arrival. Its location in the gated community makes it a short walk to the beach, while still being private and free from beach traffic and noise. The community pool next door was never crowded as we had it to ouselves much of the time. I think repeat business makes for some of the best testimonials and we hope to return here for a 3rd year next June.
We had 20 people in our group with ages from 2 to 40ish. Eight parents and the rest kids. The home is decorated beautifully and we were surprised at all the extras that were provided from the goody baskets to the abundance of beach towels and toys that were provided. We visited the beach and pool everyday. The homeowner went above and beyond with any minor problems that came up and we would definitely recommend this property to others and hope to stay there again.
Convenient to seafood restaurants (walk to Pompano Joe's), golf courses, Baytowne Wharf, Sandestin Resort, Destin Commons, SilverSands (Nation's largest outlet mall), places of worship, the 'world's luckiest fishing village,' water sports, and theme parks. The beautiful emerald green waters and sugar white sand of the Gulf Coast are just a short stroll away.
Other Activities: Shopping, Parasailing, Boating, Spa, Miniature Golf
