About the property

6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 20

Sandtrap by the Sea is a newly remodeled gulf-front home in the heart of Miramar Beach, Florida. The expansive views you get of the Emerald Coast from the deck are astounding! There is plenty of seating in the form of two tables and lounge chairs for up to 12 guests. This truly is just the place for gathering and spending that quality time with family and friends. The pool can even be heated for an additional charge, and is gated for the safety of guests and children.

New additions to the home include ensuite bathrooms to the first-floor bedrooms, a completely remodeled guest house, and variety of other upgrades throughout. The home's interior has been freshly painted with a powder blue that makes you instantly feel at ease from the moment you arrive.

The first floor of the main house includes three bedrooms, each of which comes outfitted with their own private bathroom. The bedrooms include a queen suite, a king suite, and a double queen suite with two queen beds. The king and double queen suite house the newly added bathrooms that you must see to believe. Beautifully redone, these now feature gorgeous marble tile and matching countertops. The laundry room is also on this floor and comes with an extra refrigerator that's great for storage.

The second floor is where you will find the main living area complete with a flawless combination of suede and leather furniture, as well as a Sony flat screen TV. Enjoy a seamlessly connected floor plan that allows the living room to open directly to the dining and kitchen area. The dining room table seats eight and the kitchen contains all new Kenmore appliances. The master suite is also on this floor and it boasts a king size bed, and ensuite with a jetted tub and shower combo.

The best part though? Undoubtedly the views. With the entire south wall being windows, you capture the perfect gulf front shot from all angles.

The guest house has been completely remodeled to give you everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is fully equipped with all new GE appliances and brand new fixtures. The living room sectional has enough seating for six and is open to the rest of the main areas, including the dining area that seats four. There is a master suite on the first floor that shares a bathroom with the main living areas and the laundry room is just off the kitchen. The second floor foyer has a twin-over-twin bunk bed that leads you into an additional master suite that features a king bed and bath.

Surely this home is bound to entrap you with gorgeous views and incredible finishes, there's nothing quite like it.

Not as special as I had hoped...

  • 3 of 5

The property is beautiful and the views were amazing. This property is located next to public access to the beach. We had multiple people using the private outside faucets/showers daily. We caught people in the private pool three times and saw evidence of leftover trash and cigarette butts around the pool that was definitely not ours. We brought DVDs for our young grandchildren to watch since one of the "perks" was free DVD rentals. There were 8 TVs and not a single DVD player! The first floor temperature never got below 78 degrees. We called maintenance and were told the unit had frozen and probably wasn't adequate. My adult children had to use fans to attempt comfortable sleeping temperature. We left a Chromecast attached to the main TV in family area. I called the Saturday we left and told the staff exactly where it was located. It took ten days and three more phone calls from me before the issue was resolved. We had a wonderful family vacation on a beautiful beach. I just expected a Five Star experience for the thousands of dollars I spent.

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth! Thank you for staying with us at Sandtrap by the Sea. We're so happy to hear the home was beautiful and so were the views. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know about the issues you experienced. We have our maintenance team looking into the AC, and have informed our owner liaison about the missing DVD player. We hope these items did not ruin your vacation. As for the Chromecast, someone checked into the home before we had a chance to locate it. We found it July 15 and mailed it on July 19. We hope to have the opportunity to show you what a true five-star experience is like.

Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

The view of the beach from this property was beautiful. Lots of room for all of us between both houses (we had 18 people). We really enjoyed the house. It had everything we needed. It was very nice to have our own pool and direct access to the beach. One thing to note, there is no closet in the downstairs bedroom near the front door and the upstairs floor in the 2nd house slants pretty bad.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideal for our Spring Break! We shared the house with 3 families total, and the layout was perfect! We were pleasantly surprised at how close we were to the pool and the beach - so convenient! We would definitely recommend this house to anyone. We have stayed in various locations in Destin and this was by far our favorite location. Destiny-by-the-Sea is the best location there is!!

What an amazing vacation!...

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation!!! The Three Amigos was above and beyond our expectations. Destiny by the Sea is by far the best hidden secret in Destin. The gated neighborhood and private beach made us feel like we were on a tropical island but we still had the extras of Destin!! We had a wonderful time with our whole family in this great house. Three generations!!!!! We loved the layout of the house - the three levels gave us plenty of room to have our own space but still stay together. The children loved the bottom floor bunk room and "futon area". The adults loved our own little floor upstairs. The walk to the beach was short and beautiful. We were visiting for spring break and the local area beaches were packed - we only shared the beach with families!!!! Pool was great and HEATED!!!! The big screen tv was awesome for the Tennessee basketball games during March Madness. We will definately be back to the 3 amigos this summer!!!!
