Emerald Coast-Destin Area Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom,+ bunk area, sleeper sofa, 2 bathrooms (sleeps 6)

Location: Amalfi Coast Resort, Scenic Gulf Drive, Miramar Beach, Florida (one mile west of Silver Sands Outlet Mall on Scenic Gulf Drive). View map.

Accommodations: Condo, 1 Bedroom, sleeper sofa, plus bunk area, sleeps 6, 2 full baths

Want to stay in a place that arks around a tropical lagoon on one of the highest elevations on the Emerald Coast? If so, then you have got to try our condo at the Amalfi Coast or at least our Florida version of the Italian original. Barefoot by the Sea sits on eight and one half acres of beautifully landscaped grounds on Scenic Gulf Drive. The elevation here was created by an old dune which was used by mariners to mark this part of the beach from the adjacent flats. The gated beach access across the street from the Amalfi Coast takes full advantage of this height with an old fashioned Observation Gazebo which sits above the staircase that leads down to the beach. The condo complex wraps around twin swimming pools which are elevated above a natural lagoon with a festive fountain. A graceful, arching pedestrian bridge from the pool area crosses over the lagoon and past the palm trees to take you to the beach. The simultaneous views of the twin pools, lush landscaping, lagoon and grassy lawns with the gulf in the distance are quite stunning. Barefoot by the Sea is one bedroom with two baths, fully equipped kitchen, open dining and living areas, a hallway cove that includes bunk beds, washer and dryer as well as the covered balcony.

$300 reservation deposit required to hold the unit at time of reservation by check or credit card. Balance of rent due 30 days prior to arrival. Damage deposit secured by credit card on file. Cancellations of less than 30 days subject to loss of deposit.

Rental not available to vacationing students or singles under age of 25. No smoking and no pets. For reservations, call after 6 p.m., CST, on weekdays or 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends

Our condo shares one thing in common which is a fantastic location on Miramar Beach. Located half way between Destin and Scenic 30A in South Walton you have the best of both worlds so to speak, due to its conveniently centralized location. Scenic Gulf Drive has beachfront dining just minutes away at The Whale's Tail, Pompano Joe's, Royal Palm Grill and The Crab Trap. The largest Designer Outlet Silver Sands, is also located in Miramar Beach. A multitude of restaurants, shops, galleries and live entertainment abound nearby at Sandestin, Baytowne Wharf and on Grand Boulevard.

Brand new state of the art Sacret Heart Hospital within two miles with 24 hour emergency and helicopter.

About Mark and Sally Curran

We are a military family and I retired in the area after serving 22 years in the United States Air Force.

Mark and Sally Curran purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mark and Sally Curran chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

I knew the Emerald Coast and this little slice of paradise was my 'home' after my tour to Eglin AFB almost 25 years ago. I met my husband here and we love the powder sugar beaches of the area, swimming, boating and fishing. Destin is 'the Luckiest Little Fishing Village' so we knew immediately that we would put down permanent roots here. We want to share our home and treasured beaches with our family from Illinois, friends and visiting guest. We hope you can visit and fall in love with our beautiful paradise just like we did so many years ago!

What makes this condo unique

The location of our condo will take your BREATH AWAY!! Our second floor unit is safe and secure, provides spectacular views, away from potential pedestrian noise from pool and the street. The resort is gated for your security and now offers a fitness center. This stretch of Miramar Beach doesn't have unsightly high rises. It provides for a relaxing vacation.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beautiful condo June 11-18 and loved every minute of it! The condo is beautiful and so spacious and includes literally everything you will need (minus the food of course). But there is a very nice Winn Dixie just down the street from the condo for that! The pools were wonderful and not crowded. The beach is true to gulf form, beautiful and soft sand and gorgeous water. The beach service included was great, esp with 3 kids and all the packing involved with their things. We will definitely be back!

This is the second time we have rented this condo and have never been disappointed. This condo has everything that someone needs for an amazing time at the beach. The condo is very clean, cozy and has a great view. The complex grounds are always well kept and there being two pools being a plus. The beach chair service makes all the difference when you already have your hands full with beach toys for the little one. There is even a wheeled beach caddy in the condo to make things easier if needed. I can't say enough about how awesome the owners of this condo are. She makes you feel welcome and sends you emails to make sure you arrive safely. Truely, good and honest people. We will definitely rent this condo again.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Mrs. Sally was great to work with from booking until we left. The place was very clean and well furnished. The beach service was also a great bonus. Everything was perfect! - the room, weather, beach service, and pools. We really enjoyed our stay at "Barefoot by the Sea!"

Our Go To Place

  • 5 of 5

We just completed another stay at" Barefoot By The Sea" condo. The two weeks we spent there were again wonderful. Weather was great, pool warm, beach setup nice, and above all the condo was clean, well stocked and just what we have come to expect from Sally and Mark, the owners. They have made their condo a home. If you have never stayed here you are missing out. If you love to cook , everything is there for you to use, to make a gourmet meal or a quick snack. Well stocked pots and pans and all the necessary utensils.

Location is great, close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping close by.

If you are looking for a large one bedroom, 2 bath condo - look no further BOOK!!!!
