About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

This beach house is located in a private cul-de-sac cottage neighborhood lined with palm trees and white picket fences, leading to the white sands of the emerald waters, just a 2 minute walk with no roads to cross. The neighborhood pool is conveniently located just 50 feet away. Directly across the street, you’ll find the grocery store and Silver Sands Outlet mall.

This house was built in 2003, giving it all the modern niceties and new look throughout. The 1700 sq. ft are organized with a large open living, eating and kitchen downstairs with tile flooring throughout. The kitchen is the largest of the floor designs in the neighborhood, open to the dining and living areas. It is equipped with all the appliances, utensils, dishes and cooking equipment required for the cook in the family.

All three bedrooms are located upstairs giving you peace and quiet for those long afternoon vacation naps! The master bedroom is very spacious with a king size bed, large closet and attached master bathroom. The second bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed, and the third bedroom, two twin beds, both with ample closet space. All 3 bedrooms are fully carpeted and equipped with TVs and DVD players. There is also a second full bath upstairs to accommodate the second and third bedrooms.

Relax on any of the three outdoor balconies furnished with chairs or prepare your favorite cut of meat on the gas grill. The upstairs balcony has a sneak peek of the Gulf waters. There is covered parking available and a driveway large enough to park three vehicles. This house is also pet friendly.

Loved our stay here! Everything was as described and in some cases even better. Working with Kathy was amazing. The few minor problems were remedied in a short period of time. We have been coming to this area for 8 years and we have to say that of all the property managers we have encountered Kathy is by far the best. Her attention to details is fantastic and she really cares about the properties she manages and the people who rent them. The owners are lucky to have her watch over their properties. We are looking forward to coming back next year. We know that the weather might not be as good as it was this year, but we know this property will be as clean and well taken care of as it was this year. Thanks again Kathy for everything.

Owner's Response: Wow, what a nice review! Thank you for all the kind words. See you both next year! Mr. and Mrs. Pedersen, Since this is the first home I have bought and use as a vacation rental, you could imagine how concerned we will be with our reviews. It is great to see that our first guests since purchasing Sun (Son) Seeker were happy with their stay and with Kathy, our property manager. We will be staying there ourselves next week, for the first time, and I will do a top to bottom inspection of my own. Even though your review was great, I will do everything in my power to make all future guests feel at home while enjoying the Miramar Beach/Destin area with their family. I plan to retire in this home someday and want to make it home to those that bless us with their stay and ensure that all of the details are attended to without exception. The reason we bought this year is due to our last rental of a condo in the area that turned out to almost be inhabitable. We had to buy sheets and towels and blankets to lay over the couch cushions. This convinced me of two things..1. Never give my hard earned income to someone that doesn't respect their property or guests and 2. Ensure that no one ever views our greatest asset in the same manner. This is why I will be obsessive about ensuring everything is done to make our blessed guests comfortable in this home. Thank you again for visiting our home and staying for the time you did. I hope we have the honor of your company again next year. You will always be welcome. Mike and AJ Whiting

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was in great condition, the hosts were responsive, and the location was perfect. Minutes from the beach with no busy streets to cross, shopping was right there if you wanted, and could walk to Starbucks!!

Very nice beach house

  • 5 of 5

First time visiting Destin. Home was very clean and spacious. Short walk to the beach! Kathy was great to deal with. If we ever return to Destin, we would look into renting this property again!

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

The Sun Seeker was perfect for our family of 6. I loved how clean everything was, and especially the new carpet! Perfect boy and girl rooms; the girls said their bed was super comfortable! The only thing we noticed was that the boys beds did seem pretty small, especially for our almost 12 year old son. But we really couldn't have been happier. So close to the beach, and the pool was close too!
