About Pamela Atkins

I am a mother and attorney living between my homes in Sandestin and Atlanta.

Pamela Atkins purchased this house in 2005

Why Pamela Atkins chose Miramar Beach

We have been enjoying the area for many years. We chose this area because we love the white sand beaches and crystal clear, warm water of the Gulf. Sandestin is family friendly providing a safe environment for children of all ages to explore with biking, nature trails, golf, tennis, swimming, boating, and so much more.

What makes this house unique

Our home is directly across from the Bungalo pool and putting green and near the Raven and Baytowne golf courses. Our home contains many vacation extras including games, movies, bikes, fishing polls, tennis rackets, football, kite, horseshoes, bocce ball, beach/water toys, and much more. We are a short walk or tram/bike/car ride to beautiful beaches of Sandestin (within the resort 2 miles), Marina, Tennis Center, the Village at Baytowne Wharf (within the resort 1 mile), Grand Boulevard Publix Foodstore, restaurants & movies & events (2 miles). The Bungalos at Sandestin is a special neighborhood for an unforgettable getaway.

Great House, Great Location, Great Resort!

  • 5 of 5

The Bungalo house was exactly what we were looking for when we decided we were going to Destin this summer. Dealing with Pamela throughout the process made it even easier. She was helpful throughout the booking process, and even right to the very last minute before we arrived. Working with her was fantastic.

The house is right across the street from the community pool- within 15 steps. Or a short golf cart drive to the beach. Having a golf cart for the week was something new for us, and was a delight on the vacation. Whether we were driving to Baytowne Wharf in the Sandestin Resort or to the beach- it was fun to have.

The house is beautiful, it is updated and modern throughout. The beds were very comfortable, showers clean, and the kitchen had everything that we needed to eat throughout the week. We used the grill one night as well. The front porch was nice to have to relax on the night it rained.

The Sandestin resort all together makes this place great to be as well. The wharf has everything you need, for children and adults. We went for live music on Monday, fireworks on Tuesday and dinner/ drinks a couple other nights. There are multiple options that we never got to try out because there is so much. Having multiple golf courses to choose from on the resort too also was convenient.

Overall- this is the place to be. We will be back!

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

As grandparents, we didn't know what to expect when taking 2 and 3 year olds with us. The bungalow met all our needs. The books, bikes and beach toys were a great addition. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Loved the pool directly across the street.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the bungalo. We were looking for a quiet spot with easy access to the beach so the house and location in the resort were perfect for us. The house itself is very well furnished and has all you need. It definitely deserves five stars and we recommend it!

July Family Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family and some friends (four adults and four children <7 y/o) recently spent a week at the Fins and Family Bungalo and could not have had a better time. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need for a great beach vacation. The owner is incredibly responsive (she was in Europe during our stay and responded to text messages almost immediately). We will definitely be back!

Fabulous Bungalo

  • 5 of 5

The Bungalo was absolutely perfect fit for what we wanted to do. The beach, shopping, restaurants, and golfing was within 2-5 minute drive. Plenty of room for family of six. We will definitely come back. The owner was very nice and available if needed.

Family Bungalo Enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

My family (my Wife and I, daughter and her husband and two young children) enjoyed a week at this comfortable and enjoyable bungalow in the Sandestin Resort. The bungalow was beautifully decorated and well equipped with all the necessary beach toys, recreation items and and video and computer equipment for a relaxing and fun experience. The owner was prompt in communication with us and responded quickly and appropriately in addressing questions we had before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this rental to families seeking a Sandestin experience and would hope to return ourselves at a future date.
