Miramar Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

A five minute walk takes the family to this uncrowded subdivision's private beach (Avalon Beach Estates) with the pool and tennis courts only a two minute walk from this vacation home. Enjoy the beauty of the Gulf waters and the seclusion which enhances the experience. Our guests' most common observation, ''The pictures on the website don't do the home justice!'' Guests also enjoy the home's central location to the Destin business district and just minutes away from Sandestin and 30-A's Beaches of South Walton. This vacation home is located in Avalon Beach Estates, one of the few single family home developments on the Beach Road. This private home has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room / attached sunroom with a fireplace. An open floor plan with a large gourmet kitchen includes a breakfast bar gathering area opening into the living room which affords family and friends time for eating, socializing and games. The house has enough private areas when one wants to be alone.

The expandable dining area comfortably seats eight with additional seating at the breakfast bar. Enjoy the spaciousness of the rooms and the completeness of the kitchen environment with its easy to reach accessories in a generous sized environment. Fourteen foot ceilings in the open living area provide a roomy gathering space.

The master bedroom suite features a king-size bed, walk-in closet and a large master bathroom. This spacious master bath has a separate walk-in shower, oversized double whirlpool tub, dual sinks and a built-in makeup area. A second bedroom features another king size bed, the third has 2 twin beds and the fourth bedroom has a trundle bed (providing 2 twin beds). Use of a gas Broilmaster grill is also included.

The 2,000+ sq. foot home with skylights was newly built in 2005 and tastefully furnished. Four tv's (large screen TV in the living room), two dvd's, and a washer/dryer unit are located in the home along with internet access. Upgrades such as 14 foot ceilings, crown molding, and granite countertops make your 'home away from home' surroundings comfortable and luxurious. The pool (which is cleaned on a daily basis) and two tennis courts are a few doors down from the home. Please note that this is a quiet family neighborhood and the home can accommodate a maximum of 3 cars.

Beautiful surroundings coupled with emerald waters and soft, white sand beaches make for a vacation you'll wish would never end. In addition to the beach you won't have to venture very far to enjoy many of the Destin area attractions. With just a brief drive you'll be on some of the finest championship golf courses and outstanding restaurants in the Florida Panhandle.

Shoppers can enjoy the Destin Commons Shopping area and Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall. Children will not be disappointed with bowling a game at Destin Lanes, riding a go-cart, or spending the day at the Big Kahuna Water Park.There are also excellent charter boats available for full and half day world class fishing adventures at Destin Harbor or a pleasure cruise. Numerous spas can also be found throughout the area.

If you are looking for a fun vacation, or a relaxing, beach retreat from your daily routine, the spectacular beauty of the white sand beaches, and emerald waters, then the comforts of Avalon Beach will meet your expectations. No smoking or pets.

Our family discovered the Emerald Coast 25 years ago. We returned every year until finally deciding to build. We have enjoyed seeing the quality developments built in the region and appreciate the care that has been taken to preserve the natural areas. The mild temperatures of the Panhandle and the 'seasons' in this part of Florida set it apart from lower Florida. The rich history and the wonderful features of the area make the Destin area a unique family vacation spot.

Denise and Brian purchased this house in 2005

The beauty of the area first drew us to the Panhandle along with the many amenities. The magnificent beaches, the emerald green of the Gulf, fantastic golfing, shopping, art and culture meant that there were activities for every member of the family to enjoy. The diversity of the area is unparalleled along with the friendliness of the local population

The splendor of the beaches ever changing colors brings a calm to one's spirit. Our subdivision's private beach is another special amenity. The boardwalk, which fronts the subdivision runs along the Gulf for miles providing the perfect path for walking and jogging. Shopping at the designer outlet stores, Destin Commons, Sandestin Hilton and the upscale shops on 98 are a favorite pastime along with visiting antique and quality consignment stores. Golfing at more than 10 neighborhood courses (ranging from championship to a 9 hole short course) offers duffers a great deal of choice. Fishing on both the Gulf of Mexico and the Bay area provide yet another diversion for both adults and children. Five great restaurants (3 located on the beach) are within walking distance. Amusement parks, the Gulfarium, bowling, and movie theaters for the children are close and if needed, immediate medical care is just 3 blocks north of our home with the newly constructed Sacred Heart Hospital just four miles away.

We had a wonderful time vacationing in Destin. Your home is in the perfect location. The kids really enjoyed the pool. And the newly added patio is a great place to relax in the evening. Your home is very clean and well kept. Anything that was needed during our stay was available. Thanks for all your help with the recommendations on restaurants and attractions. We hope to spend another vacation there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this descriptive review. We have to agree that our Miramar Beach home is "in the middle of it all" making the Destin to South Walton amenities just a few minutes away OR just parking the car at the house to walk to the beach, pool, tennis courts, restaurants and shopping. We think that's why this particular area has become so popular over the years. And, of course, we LOVE and appreciate our return guests. Thanks for keeping us at the top of your list for favorite places to stay!

Absolutely beautiful home. Home is very clean and we maintained. Very quiet, low traffic neighborhood. We had a great vacation with our family. The grand-kids loved the pool! The pool was never crowded - we had it to ourselves most of the time. Denise is wonderful to work with. Very open line of communication from the very beginning. She really strives to make your vacation perfect. Something you don't often have with other rentals. I would highly recommend this property

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this very positive review. We are so appreciative of our wonderful guests and like that you've recognized our efforts to present you with a vacation home experience that meets your expectations. You've also recognized another plus in commenting on the pool which has been such an asset. So many of our guests have said that it's almost like having a private pool as they are often the only ones using it during their stay (due to the fact that there are ver few rental homes in our subdivision). Additionally this summer, our guests seem to be taking advantage of the two tennis courts. Brian and I take a lot of pride in this home. Thank you for having chosen to stay at our property!

Denise, Thank you so much for opening up your home to us last week. The pictures on the website do not do this home justice. What a beautiful place you guys have. The location was great for us. We love the Crab Trap and Pompano Joe's, so it was wonderful to be that close to both. The weather was great and we were able to enjoy a lot of beach time. The beach chairs and umbrellas are a huge bonus. It was great this year not having to pack and carry our beach chairs. The kids really enjoyed being that close to the pool and tennis courts. We used both every day. This was a much needed vacation for both of our families and your home met all of our needs and more. I understand after being there why you guys love this area. Thanks again and I hope the other renters enjoy this place as much as we did.

We had a wonderful time. Your home was perfect for us and we enjoyed every minute there. The kids absolutely loved the pool. We had it to ourselves most of the time. We appreciated how you have always been on top of things right from the time you took our reservation to the prompt return of our security deposit.

Map

Car: recommended

Two blocks west of the beach restaurant Pompano Joe's and a block and a half north takes you to the doorstep of our home. It is a quick walk down to our private, uncrowded subdivision beach with the convenience of the public beach bathroom and an on the beach restaurant a few hundred feet away. Take advantage of stunning sunsets on our beach walkover. The subdivision pool is just four doors down from our home. It's also a nice area for the family to gather for pizza with plenty of tables, chairs and loungers. Rarely is it crowded and it's impeccably cleaned on a daily basis.

Other Activities: Guests choose our home because of its central location to the beach, golfing, Silver Sands Designer Outlet shopping, Destin and the Beaches of South Walton on 30A. It is also walking distance to 6 restaurants. Some guests have even parked their car for the week that they visit because everything they need is right here in the neighborhood.

Golf: There are more than 10 courses within driving distance. There is a short 3 par course behind the house and championship courses located within a 5-10 minute drive from the home.
