About the property

5BR/3.5BA Spacious House, Sleeps up to 20

Our Aqua Vista home has 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 baths included in this magnificent 4,000 sq-ft Destin Vacation home, with breathtaking views of the Gulf, Bay and Lakes. This home features 3 decks, travertine marble flooring, granite counter-tops, built-in Entertainment Center (46” HDTV), 12” crown molding and a finished two-car garage, giving you the true feeling of quality but in a family friendly environment. The large open living area, open to the kitchen and dining area, is perfect for multi-generation family gatherings following a day at the beach, which is only steps away. This 5 bedroom vacation getaway has the same spaciousness of many six bedroom beach homes, so there is plenty of space for everyone. There are five bedrooms with an adjacent sleeping area connected to the master bedroom that sleeps an additional four people. This 5 bedroom house sleeps up to 20 people comfortably.

Spend the day relaxing on the beach, with the private gated access, or at the community pool just 20 steps away, or take advantage of the other exclusive community amenities such as sand volleyball, tennis or the club house. Sunrise and sunset lovers can take in the magnificent 360-degree view from the spacious fourth level martini deck for hours of entertainment

We own and personally manage this house ourselves. We love the layout and design of the house and its surrounding area. Terra Cotta is a family friendly neighborhood and is close to the Big Kahuna’s Water Park, golf, Destin's Boardwalk, shopping centers/outlets and within walking distance to many fine restaurants.

You will be dealing directly with US, the owner, and not a property management company. You definitely won’t get better customer service anywhere!

Guestbook comments from the owner

2013 was our second year to stay at Aqua Vista, and it won't be our last. You can really, REALLY sleep lots of people in this vacation home, without using a futon or sleeper sofa. We slept 11 very comfortably. With 3 & 1/2 baths, we still were not climbing all over each other.

The home has recent updates (carpet, furniture coverings, minor maintenance). Zero trouble with the drains. Water heater failed, BUT was fixed in a few hours. Main level is very open, including a kitchen that 3-4 can hang & work in. And the kitchen, baths and beds were all very clean when we arrived.

Beach access is a "true" 2 minute walk. At the shoreline, head West for 400 feet to have YOUR OWN (public) beach nestled between two private beaches. No congestion. Enjoy your Destin beach vacation!

Plenty of space to accommodate our party of 19. The sunset from the rooftop terrace was amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Home met the needs of our large family, including five couples, four children and our parents (early 80s) for Thanksgiving. Although we brought our own items, kitchen was well stocked. Great to have beach access at our fingertips. Sleep accommodations were comfortable. Celebrated my sister's 50th at a nearby restaurant. Some items, i.e., lighting was either not working or we just did not know how to utilize them. Highly recommended.

We absolutely loved the property and the location. It was close to anything we could possibly need. A few areas of improvement will be with the cleaning crew. We found dirty dishes in the cupboard. The bedrooms on the ground levels needed attention too. But overall WE LOVED IT!!

Really nice property, spacious and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a really nice time. The house was spacious and accommodated 19 people. Only problem, it has 3 beds in the master suite, but we worked it out. It's in walking distance to the beach, the pool and volley ball court is directly across the street. The owners responded in a timely manner. Unfortunately, we had to leave a day early due to hurricane IRMA.

Very beautiful home and clean

  • 5 of 5

Big home to accommodate a big family like ours. The pool is right across the street which was wonderful. And, the beach access was right outside of the neighborhood, which was amazing because we were having a beach wedding during our stay. It worked out wonderfully.
