About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Casa Grande

Enjoy the good life at Casa Grande, only a few steps to the beach and just across the street from the main pool. There's a great pool view from every porch. This fabulous 5 bedroom, 3-1/2 bath home sleeps 15 and is located in the gated community of Emerald Shores.

Emerald Shores is a family-oriented community with two pools, (one heated in winter), tennis court, basketball, and PRIVATE COMMUNITY BEACH PAVILION WITH RESTROOM FACILITIES! Our trolley runs to the beach daily in the summer months, but you can just walk the 500 feet to the beach easily. This is a great community for your vacation and even better for our snowbird friends long term in the winter- a great escape from the cold weather.

This comfortable home is located on the south end of Emerald Shores where you can walk to several fine restaurants. Enjoy Free WI-FI, local phone calls, cable flat-screen TV's in every room and a surround sound stereo system that has speakers throughout the entire home. We have all tile on the first floor and hardwood on the second floor. No allergies from carpet in this home.

There are 4 covered porches at this home where you can sit, relax and enjoy the Destin life. Grill out on the gas grill or cook inside in the fully equipped kitchen.

Emerald Shores is located centrally in Destin so you don't have to drive far to go anywhere. Just a couple of miles east to Sandestin where you can dine, play, or chill at the Village of Baytown Wharf. Enjoy shopping, eating and entertainment at nearby Destin Commons or play at the fun water park Big Kahunas. You may choose to spend a day at the Harbor, watching the fishing fleet come in with the catch of the day, take in one of the fine restaurants, or play at night at one of the many night clubs. Numerous golf courses are within a few miles.

About The Owner

We hope you enjoy your visit at Casa Grande! We spent Christmas 2013 here and have cherished the memories of our family enjoying each other in our house by the sea. We live just blocks away from the house and are available for any questions or information needed.

We Love happy customers and we will do all we can to be sure you visit us again and again!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We were a military family and later worked in the civilian sector. During our military career we traveled many places and we do not think there is not a better family vacation destination than here. We liked it so much that we built our retirement home here and just love the area.

What makes this house unique

There are parking spaces for three cars plus overflow parking across the street by the pool. If you bring a trailer it not allowed to be parked in the Emerald Shores complex therefore arrangements to park the trailer elsewhere will need to be made.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

It was awesome place, the location and home was 5 star. I should be returning soon. Our family of 7 had plenty of room & got a chance to stay for a month. Owner AL was kind of enough to keep rates at a good price.

Comfy, affordable, and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a family vacation and wedding. We had 6 adults and 4 children. There were plenty of rooms, space, and bathrooms. In the laundry room we found a extra fridge which was handy to just put ice and drinks in. Beds were very comfortable for us. Kids had a great time here and were able to have a space for themselves. There is a shower/hose outside which was handy to clean ourselves off after the beach. The beach access is great since there is a pavilion there that has restrooms, showers, and sell drinks as well. Beach service isn't provided as part of the deal, but there is service available for guests at the beach at an additional cost. Worth the money if you plan on spending an entire day at the beach. There are beach toys and a cart to load all your stuff in to take back and forth to the beach. The trolley was nice when we did see it. An ice cream truck rolls through the area as well which the kids will love. Very close to restaurants, shopping, and just a short drive into Destin Harbor area. Our coffee pot went kaput, but the owner brought us a new one in a very timely fashion. The pool is located just across the street from us which was nice. There are a couple of things I could be nitpicky on, but every place will have a couple of things you will run across. highly recommend the place for multiple families or large group of friends. Don't pass this place up if you get a chance to stay here!

Our second time staying at Casa Grande, we loved it so much the first time we came back. Everything is provided, never a shortage of towels or blankets. East stroll to beach. All the pictures are exactly as the house is. Very convenient to the pool. Owner very easy to work with. Very affordable for the size of the house. Nothing lacking in this lovely "Pottery Barn" styled house.

Very NICE!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families in our party, and because there were some smaller children there was plenty of room (& beds) for all. The owner is very accommodating and very easy to work with. The house was beautiful and had all the amenities. Plenty of sheets, blankets, towels and necessary kitchen appliances. (Toaster, coffee maker, blender and two fridges). Washer and Dryer helped to keep up on laundry, plenty of beach toys and a wagon to pull them. Grill worked great. Very short walk to beach, pools, tennis, and basketball. Highly recommend.

fabulous and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We went with 4 families for a total of 10 adults and 3 little ones. The owner was very accommodating in providing an additional pack n' play so we had one less thing to pack. The pool was Soooo convenient especially since our 1yr old hated the ocean. Loved this place and have already recommended it to others.
