Split bdrm design offers 2 king bdrms with complete privacy for 2 couples or is perfect for 2 families with 2 extra bedrooms for the kids.

All new furniture, fully equipped kitchen with Granite and Stainless, separate utility room with full size W/D, Gas Grill, Keyless Entry, 2 car garage with key pad so everyone can come and go without keys. Great Room has 42 inch LCD HDTV, DVD,stereo CD shelf system with IPod dock.

House is perfect for 2 families, with 2 large king bedrooms and 2 more bedrooms for the kids. King and Queen beds have Tempur-pedic or memory foam mattresses, twin beds have pillow top mattresses. Twin beds are extra long so can be put together to make a 3rd king. All bdrms have ceiling fans, TV & full length mirrors. Why rent a cramped condo and share a pool with strangers.

About Mike and Sherry Oxner

We currently live in OH but have also lived in CA, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. All of these places have beautiful beaches but none compare to Destin, FL!

Mike and Sherry Oxner purchased this house in 2007

Why Mike and Sherry Oxner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We both grew up vacationing in the FL panhandle so it has always been our favorite place to visit. We frequently vacationed here with our 2 kids and now our 5 little grandchildren (ages 1 to 8) love Destin too. We first bought a 2 bdrm condo but as our family grew, we needed more room. We thought we'd miss the ocean view from our condo but found we much prefer the privacy of a single family home with private pool. Whenever we rent properties in other locations, we prefer single family homes. Much quieter and more private than condos.

What makes this house unique

We chose this house because we loved the split bedroom design and the fact that it had one of the largest back yards in the neighborhood. Mike is a civil engineer so he designed our pool himself to fit our yard and still leave room for a large patio. We added more palm trees along the pool and the back of the yard to create a more tropical feel. The community is gated and sits right across from our gorgeous white sand beach.

It's perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I am a repeat renter at this property and it never disappoints! The owners are very diligent about keeping the house in top condition. The kitchen is better stocked than mine. The house is roomy and has comfy beds. A crib was provided for my two year old. My older kids spent most of their time swimming in the pool and hardly wanted to leave to go to the beach. When we did go to the beach there were chairs, umbrellas and sand toys in the garage for us to use. The location is perfect - walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The owner is fantastic with communication and providing information. I literally could not ask for anything more in a rental property. We will be back next year!

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family of 10 stayed in the home comfortably. The house is beautiful, well-organized and spotless! The pool was the perfect size for my family and we spent a lot of time sitting out on the patio surrounded by the beautiful landscaping. The beach was only a short walk from the home. Wonderful place to stay in a wonderful community!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It had everything we would ever want/need in a vacation home. The kitchen was well stocked - felt just like home. The pool is amazing and is so pretty at night with the lights on the palm trees. We'll be back again for sure. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us for the week. The Bauers
