Overview

Miramar Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Wow, what a great vacation home in the Destin area! Located in the tranquil, gated neighborhood of Emerald Shores, this three story, four bedroom, three bath home sits in a cul-de-sac at the community pool and only a five minute walk to the beach! There is also a free tram service to the beach during the summer months! Recent updates include a new 51' Plasma TV with some high def channels, DVD players, and a new stainless steel Kitchen with granite counters! New Stainless Steel appliances and new granite counters installed Spring 2012!! New TVs in the bedrooms have been added too!

Sit out on the wrap-around balconies or the first floor covered porch and enjoy the weather and the views of the neighborhood and pool! There is a distant water view from the third floor balcony!

This Caribbean cottage, named 'Caribe,' is decorated with a Caribbean theme and bright colors! It sleeps 12! The first floor has a spacious and open floor plan with tiled floors. The second floor is carpeted in the bedrooms and tiled in the bathrooms and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a bonus room leading to the second floor balcony. The third floor is a loft area with twin beds with access to yet another balcony! High Speed internet access on 1st floor.

Emerald Shores has its own Beach Cabana with restrooms, picnic tables, and lounge chairs. There are also two heated pools, tennis court, shuffle board, and a basket ball court! Conveniently located to the Destin Commons Mall, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Golf, Restaurants, and more!

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports.

Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes two to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!

Managed by Crystal Waters Vacations. We have other properties that may meet your needs. If this home is not exactly what you are looking for, check out our others! Give us a call or send us an email for more information!

About Bill or Terry

From Montgomery, AL but love Destin!

Bill or Terry purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Bill or Terry chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Emerald Shores is a gated community with 2 pools, a tennis court, basketball goal, and a private beach cabana! No other neighborhood along this stretch of beach has a private beach cabana with restrooms, lounge chairs, and picnic tables! Great location too! Walk to the beach and restaurants along the beach! Close to the Destin Commons Mall and the Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall!

What makes this cottage unique

Big home located right behind the bigger of the 2 pools in Emerald Shores! Nice covered 1st floor porch as well as covered wrap around 2nd and 3rd floor balconies. There is even a glimpse of the Gulf from the 3rd floor balcony!

�Best Vacation ever!!�

We stayed during the summer 2014 and will try to get same house this summer!! There was nothing we didn't like about the house! Very spacious and very clean!! Very short walk to the beach, but they still have a shuttle that will take you back and forth! Nice pool next to the house for the evenings! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We contacted the rental agency one time and quickly they came and assisted us. Thank you for the welcoming stay!

Reviewer Comments:

It was a great house for us 9 people. Everything looked great. Beds were comfy, bathrooms clean, and kitchen has it all. Be careful of the big ants on balconies. They do bite! The downside is the parking. Driveway is very small for a house that can accommodate 12 ppl. The houses are very close together however with the trees and bushes, it felt secluded. I would definitely come back to this house.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Caribe! It is a nice and spacious home with a great location! The bigger of 2 pools is visible from the balconies! The driveway can accommodate 2 maybe 3 vehicles. Overflow parking is right at the pool.

We love the Caribe. There were 12 of us, including children, and the house had plenty room for all of us. The beach is a shortwalk from the house and the pool is almost to front of the house. Dollar store is a 5 minute walking distance as well. We all enjoyed our stay!!

Reviewer Comments:

Enjoyed the rental with all of the beach floats. Could have used more dining room chairs. It only had five chairs. Ice maker made ice, but it did not dispense it. When it rained, we caught the small leak in the master bedroom ceiling by deck door, in a trash can. Grill does not close well. Blind by upstairs hide a bed was broken. Overall enjoyed the house, just a few details could have made it better.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at Caribe! It is a nice home in a gated neighborhood with the best amenities along our stretch of beach! The bigger of 2 pools is right out the front door and the private beach cabana with restrooms, picnic tables, and a short order cafe is a mere 1/4 mile, about 1 time around a high school track! The ice maker is working fine. It may have frozen up when the temperature control was increased! There is a new grill at the house June 2015!

Reviewer Comments:

Emerald Shores is a great neighborhood and Crystal Waters Vacations is excellent to rent from. They do a tremendous job to make it easy on you. We have rented a dozen or so homes in Emerald Shores over the past 15 years and it never disappoints. That said, Caribe could use some TLC. There were a number of minor things in the home that need attention, however we chose not to interrupt our vacation to deal with the repairs.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Caribe! It is a super nice home with new furniture, fresh paint, and nice upgrades. Not sure what TLC was needed but sure wish we knew so we could have taken care of any concerns. The house looks great and is in good condition.
