The large kitchen has a bar that seats 2, a round table for 4, and a separate dining area for fine dining is located in the living area with seating for 8. The kitchen is always a gathering spot, and you will be enjoying a huge kitchen complete with all amenities. Truly a must if you enjoy cooking and plan to eat a few meals at home!

There are two gulf front master bedrooms, each with a king bed.

One is downstairs and has a large flat screen tv and very large room with full wall of windows view of the ocean. This master has a bathroom that has a small transom window for watching the ocean as you shower! It has a rain shower and a wall shower, but no tub.

The other bedroom downstairs is a bunk room with two full size and two twin size bunks and a large flat smart tv on wall.

All of the bunks have their own usb outlets and wall lights. It has a private entrance to a bath that has a tub/shower. It is not gulf front, but you have a complete view of the ocean from it's bay window.

The upstairs master has it's own private balcony and a 43 inch smart tv. It also has only a large tiled shower in the bath, but no tub. There is a full size and portable crib stored in the walk in closet in this room. The room is very large and has it's own balcony to enjoy your coffee while watching the dolphins play.

The other gulf front bedroom upstairs was designed with children or teens in mind. It has two queen beds plus a twin bed, so 5 people can easily sleep in this room. It also has a tv mounted on the wall so all in the beds can view the tv. It's tiled and marbled bath also has a shower, but no tub.

There is a gas grill for outdoor cooking. You will enjoy two teak tables, chairs for eating outside with cushions that match the ocean's beautiful green color. And, of course, lots of chaises and rockers for your sunning and viewing pleasure. Plus, there are two beach umbrellas and 4 beach chairs set up for you each morning on your private beach from March-October

There are two balconies for beach-side viewing and sunning, and there is also a large covered porch on the lower level with an outdoor, private shower. Men and children love taking showers in this bath!!! There is room for sunning in chaise lounges on this level, or enjoying a sun free covered porch with a swing and enough tables and chairs to seat over 20 people.

You are within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Kayak, bike, and scooter rentals are directly across the street. There is a convenience store just steps away, a good pizza place, (which also serves breakfasts), and a dairy queen just across the street as well as as beach store. This strip mall has everything! And, if you want wonderful gourmet coffees, step across the street to the Bad Ass Cafe...Wonderful place for breakfast, or walk down the beach to the Whale's Tail for breakfast or lunch. The largest upscale outlet mall in the country is less than two miles away as well as two grocery stores, drug stores, etc.

You will fall in love with this two story adorable beach cottage and want to call it your own. Just a few stairs to climb in the home so it is perfect for small kids and elderly. We have gates from the balcony to the lower level, and from the front door to the walkway to the deck on side of house. This is where the grill is located. We also have gates for use of the stairs in the main living area so little ones can't crawl up or down. Owners live in Miramar Beach for the winter months and in Cashier's NC for the summer months, but their daughter in law is always standing by to take care of any needs you have, plus Ocean Reef also manages our property so they are there to help also. And, Bev is always just a text away from you! You will never want to leave this precious cottage!!! We provide all guests with our personal recommendations of restaurants and activities to enjoy.

This is a no smoking, pet free home. Up to 5 large cars or suv's can park; 4 in the paved driveway, and one in front of the house.

On the large covered porch downstairs there is a separate refrigerator/freezer so cool drinks are only steps from the beach.

You may use the pool directly across the street. This pool is for guests of our beach home, (called 'Clearview'). It is a 4 unit condo building with tenants who work all day so pool is empty for you to enjoy. And, you may use the pools from our vrbo listing 30231! Please go to that listing to read the descriptions of the pools and surrounding areas. (The SS pool is not within walking distance of the beach homes, but you can easily spend a day there).

The calendar on vrbo is CURRENT except for weeks that I am awaiting rental agreements, so please check the vrbo calendar before emailing me. Also, we only do Sat to Sat rentals; no daily rentals.

About Bev Monaco

I am Bev Monaco, and my husband is John. We retired to Destin 16 years ago and wouldn't dream of living anywhere else. We just love it here, but have found another wonderful spot in the mountains of North Carolina.. so we do the country club life in the summer in Cashier's and the quiet winters in Miramar Beach during the winter months. God has been wonderful to us!!! .. We have a full time handyman who makes sure our properties are kept in tip top shape. And, our daughter in law takes care of our properties like we would during the summer months. She is just awesome and you will adore her. We do!!! We lost our son, Maria's husband in a tragic accident over 3 years ago, so vacationing with loved ones is even more special to us as we know that can change in an instant. We insist on making sure our guests have incredibly wonderful vacations when they stay in any of our properties! We are very much hand's on with our guest's needs.

Bev Monaco purchased this House in 2003

Why Bev Monaco chose Miramar Beach

My husband and I were flying to Hawaii for a vacation 18 years ago, and United Airlines had a big spread in their magazine about the Emerald Coast of Florida.. I grew up in Atlanta, Ga and had never even heard of the Emerald Coast as my parents were not beach lovers. When we returned I flew to Destin with the intention of buying a small condo IF the beach and surroundings were as described in the article.. Within a day, I called my husband to tell him I had found the perfect retirement spot for which we had been searching for several years! We bought 24559 first, and I spent 3 incredibly wonderful winters there until we moved down full time and built our retirement home. The rest is history.. We starting acquiring beautiful properties as investments to rent out. I loveeee decorating and doing all the things I think our guest's need to ensure they have wonderful experiences. We wouldn't live any other place in the world! (Except for the mountains in Cashier's NC during the summer months!!!!) The beaches here are just the most beautiful in the world. It is just a gorgeous little piece of Heaven!

What makes this House unique

We host a sibbling reunion each year at our beach home and always experience incredibly beautiful memories. My sister and I were sitting on the balcony of 24559 at sunset about 5 years ago and saw the 'green flash'! It was incredible to witness!!! It was over so quickly, but for years we had read books that referenced the 'green flash' but never knew if it was really true.. Well, it is!! (Of course, the rest of the sibblings and our spouses insist we had had one glass of wine too many!!!) The beach here is unlike any other in the world.. beautiful pure white powdery sand made from ice crystals and crystal clear emerald green waters.. incredible restaurants and wonderfullll people.. it is a wonderfulllll vacation spot!!!

                                                                  Stacia P.

                                                                  The beaches of the Florida panhandle are almost ALL uniformly picturesque. What seperates Cape Monaco from the rest is that it gives the guest the perfect location to take it all in whenever it works best for that individual.

                                                                  For instance:

                                                                  My husband and I poured our coffee at 6am, put a light jacket over our pajamas and sat in the swing on the lower porch every morning. It was lovely solitude until the grands (they're 7 and 9) “found” us, then we would begin our heated battles of “Go Fish”. If they preferred to play in the sand, they could play right in front of the house near the water - where we (still in pjs) could see them at all times. There were lots of sand toys waiting in the box on that porch! This lasted until the 20 to 30 somethings rolled out.

                                                                  Afternoon activity consisted of paddle boards (across the street), lazy beach play or reading - in the sun or not - all the while staying in view so as to keep communication easy and open within the age groups and interests.

                                                                  While everyone else was getting ready for the evening, hubs and I got dressed for dinner, then enjoyed a cocktail on the main porch while taking in the spectacular sunset.

                                                                  All of this to say: you can’t do those things just anywhere along the beach. This home provided for each of our unique needs while keeping us all under one roof.

                                                                  Another thing - we loved the configuration of chairs!! The main porch had 2 lounge chairs, a table and chairs (more than 4), and 2 rockers. This could seat each of us in whichever way made us most comfortable. The lower porch had the swing, loads of table seating, and 2 swivel/rockers in the shade plus 2 more loungers out in the sun. The private master deck gave us two more loungers that we 2 old people napped on. Did I mention that ALL of the chairs are padded and extremely comfortable?? (None of that plastic stuff!)

                                                                  Here’s another “comfort detail”: One night the noise level inside was more than I wanted at that particular time so I stepped out on the porch and closed the door. That eliminated the offensive sounds and I was able to wrap myself in the comfort and peace of the rolling waves. Bliss!

                                                                  ps. We had all that we needed to make, serve and enjoy a full Thanksgiving dinner for 25!! even though we were just 9

                                                                  Thank you, Bev and Maria!

                                                                  Janie T.

They took care of it immediately. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Loved being right on the beach. Not sure we can afford it again but not because of the home. Great location also

                                                                  Wonderful!

                                                                  Sharon M.

                                                                  Great location and perfect for families with young children. Two baby beds, high chair and baby gates! The owner was very attentive to our needs and very accessible prior to and during our stay. Lots of great restaurants and shopping very close and the beach was wonderful. We are already planning our next week.

Both our daughters and all the grandchildren commented on how this had been one of the nicest family vacations they have had. My soon to be 4 year old told her mom "I love this house. Can we keep it?" The layout of the house is perfect. The "teen room" was a hit and the outside enclosed shower was a plus. Definitely a do over.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We have some memories of when my daddy and momma were alive visiting there as well as some family reunions. Those memories are precious! Thank you for staying, and please do return!!! Bev
