About the property

Private pool, walk to beach, 3 king beds, twin/queen bunks, WiFi, new Gas Grill

Newer house in gated beach community, your own private backyard pool with large brick paver patio. Split bdrm design will soon have 3 king bdrms and the 4th bdrm will have an XL twin over queen bunkbed with trundle that will sleep 4 children (or 2 adults plus 2 children). We are in the process of making these changes and will post new pictures to reflect these changes once they are complete.

Why stay in a cramped condo and share a pool with strangers when you can have the privacy and convenience of your own home & pool. Very convenient when babies are napping! All bedrms have ceiling fans, TV & full length mirrors. Attached Garage to unload luggage and groceries, instead of climbing stairs or riding elevators. Gas grill on pool patio for grilling at home if you don't want to go out for dinner.

All new furniture, fully equipped kitchen with Granite and Stainless, separate utility room with full size W/D, Keyless Entry, 2 car garage with key pad so everyone can come and go without keys. For children's safety, house has alarms on all doors and windows leading to pool area + extra deadbolt up high on back door.

House is approximately 1500 feet from beach. You can walk to beach or drive 0.2 mile east to free beach parking near Pompano Joe's & beach restrooms. Close to everything in Destin: Outlet Mall, Destin Commons Mall, restaurants & Marina.

Truly a home away from home!

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 Miramar Beach

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 has 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.

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed staying at this home. There was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space, as well as spend time together in the house, or out by the pool. The pool and landscaping were beautiful and relaxing. The beach was only a short walk away, and having a wagon to pull our things to the beach made it an easy stroll. The house was very clean and comfortable, and the owners were wonderful to work with. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to have a fun and relaxing vacation in Destin!

Wonderful, Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely wonderful! We stayed here with our 3 kids ages 5, 2, and 5 months. This house has all the comforts of home plus more! It can be hard to travel with 3 kids but this house made is so much easier. There were two cribs, a pack and play, and a high chair we were able to use instead of lugging it from home! There was also a lot of beach and pool stuff there for us! I was concerned about the safety of having a pool right outside of the house but it was very secure. There is a top deadbolt and a very loud alarm that goes off if the door is opened (it can Be turned off if you don't need it). Comfortable beds. Lots of extra linens. Completely stocked kitchen. Helpful and friendly owners. I literally have nothing bad to say about this house is was amazing!! I hope we can come back very soon!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice for two families with kids. The pool is a little smaller than we expected judging by the photos but our 4 kids has enough room to play. There is 10 minutes walk to the beach. Management made sure that we have everything that we need during our stay and kept in touch. Overall recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! The pool measures 20x21 feet and most private pools in the area are 13x20. Maybe the square design made it appear smaller but its just the right size for our extended family of 10. Mike designed it so there would be plenty of patio area for lounge chairs, table, grill etc. Thanks and we hope to hear from you again! Sherry & Mike

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!
