Long ago we decided to retire to the beach and when we vacationed on the Emerald Coast we knew we had found the place. It will be a few years until we take up residence and in the meanwhile we have made it as inviting and comfortable as we would want for ourselves. Come, relax, make memories...

Owner/Property Manager purchased this townhome in 2012

We wanted a place very close to the beach, no drive involved. We wanted to have all the comforts of home, open floor plan and be in the heart of activities. This property had great bones and we knew with TLC it could have a contemporary look with a nod to the sea, without being 'beach weachy'.

The house has many unique features, tile throughout, beautiful large deck off living area, beamed ceiling, and balcony of master. Hard surface counter tops, hardwood stairs, but more than anything it is a house at the beach that is at the beach!

PERFECT PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed at Our House By The Sea for a week and it was the most memorable and relaxing vacation we have ever taken. Diana had thought of anything that one might need and provided it. The house was beautiful, just the right amount of elegance and comfort. The location is perfect! It is a short walk to the beach as well as the local Whales Tales restaurant. If you are looking for an unforgettable vacation, look no further. We will definitely be going back!

AWESOME LOCATION! COZY! AFFORDABLE!

  • 5 of 5
This rental was perfect for our beach getaway! Myself and 3 others stayed for a week in September and were very impressed with the cleanliness and coziness of this little gem . We immediately felt at home and the early check in was very convenient after our 8 hour drive through the night. The bedrooms are large and there is a lot of storage throughout the house. We were very close to great restaurants and shopping including Pompano Joes, one of your favorite spots to wine and dine on the beach. The ocean was so close you could hear it as you sat on the large back patio enjoying cocktails with friends.
I would highly recommend this rental. Its great location and the large lower level made it the go to hang for all of our other friends who stayed near by. I felt very supported by the rental owners through out our stay and the rental process was quick and easy.
In closing, this rental exceeded my expectations in many ways and I highly recommend it. Our family frequents the Destin area and have been disappointed by some sub par homes. With this rental what you see is what you get and what you get is a great place to relax and make memories.

The owner has the name right on this one! This property is definitely a great place to relax and make memories! From the moment I spoke with the owner, I felt like I was going to stay at a close friend's favorite get away. I have stayed in the Florida panhandle several times, but this property is the cleanest and neatest I have ever found. The decor and color scheme of the rooms both relax and uplift you at the same time while the private patio on both decks offer outdoor relaxation and privacy from the hustle and bustle of the beach activities. The beach is just a short stroll up the drive which made it easy to carry our accessories to and from our visits to the clean white sands and beautiful blue waters of the Destin area. When considering the low cost, location, and accommodations the owner offers, we could not have asked for a better hideaway for our spring vacation, which also included an affordable way to attend the beach wedding of family members. My son and his fiancé loved the property so well they plan to return and use it in the fall for their honeymoon!

AS ADVERTISED...AND MUCH MORE!!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time using VRBO.com to book a vacation and I came across this beautiful townhome in our vacation search. From the time I sent the first request until even after our trip was over, Diana has been the most pleasant person to work with. We stayed in a hotel last year we made a trip to Destin and this property has totally changed our mind about where to stay in the future!
This property/location is great for all ages, but especially families with small children. My almost 3 year old son enjoyed playing on the fully enclosed patio and I loved the piece of mind that he could play safe while we fixed meals in the kitchen nearby. A very very short walk across the street to the beach and the main strip made it convenient to carry all of our beach stuff back and forth. Although we were across the street, the actual unit's location was away from traffic and so quiet and soundproof, we did not even hear the neighbors!
Diana did not forget anything when she furnished this place. We were amazed at all of the amenities provided. She thought of everything a traveler could need! Comfortable and new furniture, bedding, etc, this place was a steal for the price!
I could go on and on! If you would like to be in the heart of Miramar Beach but still have the feel of a home away from home, look no further! We will definitely be back!

If booking for 30+ days, call owner prior or booking online. Cleaning fee for 30+days $200. Property damage insurance $49. $250.00 Refundable Security Deposit. Other payment arrangements available.

Our House By the Sea is first and foremost extremely close to the beach. You can be on the beach, without driving your car, 3-5 minutes from closing the door. Making multiple visits to the beach each day, is very easy. We love to walk the short distance to nearby Whales Tail and watch the sunset each evening. We are adjacent to Surfside and I had a wonderful massage there a few weeks back. Shopping is convenient as well with a huge outlet just out Scenic 98.
