Overview

Dunes of Destin House Rental Photos and Description

This fantastic 6000 square foot beachfront home was purchased at the end of 2011, and we have been completely remodeling and updating this now 7 bedroom/8.5 bath beach house. There are four stories, each having its own large balcony overlooking the Gulf. We have finally finished renovations and have posted updated pictures!!

Bedding Summary:

1st floor: Twin size bunk bed w/trundle, Full size bunk w/twin on top, queen size sleeper sofa, 2 twin size beds

2nd floor: Full size sleeper sofa

3rd floor: Two king size beds

4th floor: Four queen size beds

Martinis in the Sand is furnished as follows:

1st floor:

The lower level of the home features an open living/media area complete with two sets of bunks, one twin w/trundle, one full w/twin on top, one full size sleeper sofa, and two twin beds. There is also a pool table, a 60' rear projection TV, a 60' LCD TV, a 42' flat screen TV, a side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, wet bar w/microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, etc. This floor also contains a laundry room with washer and dryer, and 2 bathrooms each with 2 showers and a toilet room. There is direct access to the backyard sand through a sliding glass door, as well as to our private dune walkover straight to the beach.

2nd floor:

The second floor open space living area contains a huge kitchen/dining area complete with 2 dual ice maker refrigerators, 2 stoves (each w/double ovens - one gas, one electric), 2 dishwashers, and an island bar area with seating for 6-8. All kitchen appliances are stainless steel KitchenAid (aside from the refrigerators which are Samsung). We have 2 dining tables with 16 total dining chairs, and also a dining area for 8 available on the balcony. We have a 47' flat screen over the bar counter, and a 65' flat screen in the living room along with a nice entertainment center and plenty of seating including a full size sleeper sofa. The second laundry room is also located on this floor, as well as a half bath and open foyer with a spiral staircase leading up to the third and fourth floors. This entire floor has an exquisite view of the Gulf through an entire wall of windows across the back. The balcony on this floor has stairs leading directly to the ground where you can easily put your feet in the sand and head directly out to the beach via our private dune walkover!

3rd floor:

The third floor is home to two spacious master suites, both with magnificent Gulf views, and each with a king size bed and chaise lounge. Each of the Gulf front window walls have room darkening vertical blinds for those who love to sleep in, but direct access for those who might like to enjoy their morning coffee listening to the waves from the balcony. One of the suites has a 52' TV with handicap accessible bathroom. The other suite has a 55' TV with a large bathroom and garden tub. This floor has a common area with wet bar, microwave, coffeemaker, etc.

4th floor:

The top floor of this home features 4 bedrooms each furnished with a queen size bed and flat screen TVs ranging from 40' to 47''. Each of the rooms has its own full bath. There is a common access to the balcony, and two of the rooms actually have their own dedicated balcony access.

We have furnished our home with primarily Paula Deen furniture for that modern, yet comfortable setting.

The residential elevator accesses each floor from the ground level up, and the stairs spiral from the 2nd floor up to the 4th floor. We also have a two-car garage, and the community pool is only a block away! We have a private dune walkover for direct access to the beach that we consider our backyard and a huge deck! For your convenience, we also have a high chair, stroller, child gate, etc.

We know you will fall in love with this beauty on the beach just as we did!

Awesome for Family Reunions!

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a family reunion at Martinis in the Sand over the week of New Years and it was great. We have had reunions here in the past (2006 & 2010) when the home was the Bel Esprit. They were good but the renovations the new owners have completed make the home perfect. The kitchen and living area on the second floor allowed everyone to be together when fixing meals and playing games. The kitchen has everything you need to include a very fancy margarita machine. The 3 balconies, large wooden deck, and 11 TVs throughout the house give everyone a chance to get away when they want to. There were lots of beach chairs and games in the garage storage room and the garage worked out fine for two of our cars (one is an Excursion). The large wooden deck is a big improvement over the old small paver patio. Entertaining was a breeze. We will be back.

Absolutely wonderful facility for our son's wedding and bridal party. Easily accommodated 30 people on the deck for the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. Beautifully decorated and maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

PERFECT BEACH WEDDING VENUE & FAMILY VACATION LOCATION

PERFECT BEACH WEDDING VENUE & FAMILY VACATION LOCATION
  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED this property!!!! We had it rented for our wedding welcome dinner on the back deck, ceremony on the beach, & reception on the deck. Trust me when I say we looked at a lot of venues prior to finding the secret treasure, I am sooooo thankful our wedding planner knew about this place.....AMAZING!! My new husband & I have 5 teenagers between us, so our immediate family & the bridal party stayed there very comfortably for the 5 days surrounding the wedding!! We also had several family members traveling in from all over the country & they rented two other homes in the neighborhood for overflow (Seabreeze & Katrina). This house had EVERYTHING we needed & more!! The owner & his assistant were amazing, flexible, & VERY prompt in responding to our needs. For example, one of the ovens stopped working and we had a repair man at our house within 2 hours & it was repaired in less than 24 hours. We hope to make this venue a future vacation spot for us because it was PERFECT!! Thank you Sarah & Roy for EVERYTHING!!! I am happy to share my wedding pics & more detailed reviews with any other bride if it helps you decide on this very special place!

Family Florida Trip 2013

  • 5 of 5
We decided to rent this home 7 months prior to our stay and the countdown was like waiting for Xmas. Our party was made up of 11 adults and 12 children ranging in age from 3 to 19. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. None of us wanted to leave for home on Saturday. The house was in perfect condition and exceeded our expectations. We spent 3 hours at Sam's Club and the kitchen was perfect for gourmet dinners and big breakfasts'. The dual refrigerators and cooktops made our food prep and meals a breeze. If you want a place in Destin to make your own memories, YOU SHOULD STAY HERE. I don't even have to mention the outstanding views to the beach. You will fill your camera with pictures. We booked the home for next year two days after we returned home. Enough said.

Big and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough about how great this house was. Big and beautiful! We had four families, a total of 20 people and we had plenty of room! The HUGE dining table sat all 12 children for our pasta night and the adults sat outside on the patio. The big kids enjoyed riding bikes to the souvenir shop and the Pancackery. Sarah was such a joy to work with leading up to our visit!

Just absolutely beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the 3rd time my family has vacationed in Destin for a reunion and this was by far THE best property we have stayed in. Very clean, absolutely beautiful, and very spacious and its on the beach!! This property did not missed a beat. It even had an ice maker!! Defiinitely came in handy. For family gatherings, this kitchen had everything you could possibly need to feed your family. Also, theres two outdoor grills at your disposal too if you like to do some grilling. Lots of activities for all ages to enjoy!You simply have to see for yourself. This property will exceed your expectations and I highly recommend this property. Thank you Roy for letting us stay at your house and thank you Sarah for making it happened!!
