About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This pet friendly, non-smoking unit, located in the Beach Retreat Condominium complex, is exceptional. One of the largest one bedroom floor plans in the area, the 945 square feet gulf front unit sleeps six and boasts a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The expansive living area overlooks the white sugar sands of Miramar Beach and the sound of the crashing waves on the shore fill the space. The fourth floor balcony offers chaise lounges and a table and chairs for morning coffee or a relaxing afternoon with a good book.

The watercolor inspired décor offers a luxurious master suite for adults while offering a child friendly atmosphere for the easy comfort of vacation living with the kids. The suite also features a private bath and an entertainment center with ample storage housing a 27-inch TV and DVD player. The cozy bunkroom space is perfect for the children -- complete with TV/DVD/VCR combo unit for their own nighttime entertainment. A queen-size sleeper sofa accommodates additional guests.

Destin offers unlimited dining opportunities, but if staying in is your preferred dining experience, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for an extended vacation stay. The dining table accommodates six and the bar comfortably seats an additional four.

The unit boasts ten foot ceilings, tile floors in the living, kitchen and hallway areas, central heating and air conditioning, a kitchen pantry, full size washer and dryer, trash chutes and on-site security.

The beautiful Tuscan exterior of this four story, 44-unit complex accentuates the luxurious living accommodations. The Beach Retreat complex features 300 feet of private gulf frontage, a 3,000 square foot heated pool, whirlpool, fitness center, barbecue grills, picnic area and sundeck, all surrounded by the lush tropical Florida landscape.

We would love to have you and appreciate you considering our place!

About Michelle Jackson

Growing up in Alabama, the Florida Panhandle was always our choice for a beach get-away. When we were younger, Destin was a sleepy little community with the most beautiful white sandy beaches and very little to do. Over the years, we've watched it grow into a beautiful beach resort community with the finest accommodations, dining, shopping and wonderful family acitivites. We've enjoyed a family cottage in Destin for many, many years, and added our ocean view condominium just a few years ago. The sun, the sound of the ocean, the sea breeze and the feel of the smooth white sand beneath your feet just does something to relax the soul and we find that peace everytime we are there.

Michelle Jackson purchased this condo in 2003

Why Michelle Jackson chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Beach Retreat is in the Miramar Beach area in between the city limits of Destin and the SanDestin Beach Resort area. We enjoy the convenience of having great shopping and restaurants just a few miles in either direction and the incredible ocean views without the hustle and bustle of downtown. The low rise, Italian look of the exterior and one of the largest one-bedroom floor plans with high ceilings was also a plus, but the view and the 3000 square foot swimming pool sealed the deal.

What makes this condo unique

We most enjoy the view and sound of the surf from our balcony. Our children most enjoy building sandcastles, searching for sea shells, snorkeling, the volleyball games that pick up along the beach, and boating in the bay. We also enjoy riding our bikes along the bike and walking trail to a park just a few miles away, and often will stop by the sidewalk cafe for a smoothie on the way back. The family concerts at Baytowne are wonderful in the evenings and the movies are close by as well.

Fantastic trip!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I highly enjoyed our trip to Destin and staying in this condo. The view from the balcony is amazing! We also liked that the beach and pool were just a few steps away from our door. The pool was bigger than most so you never had to worry with it being crowded. The condo was neat and fully furnished so you had anything you needed while staying. We will for sure be back!!

Beach Retreat #405 is a great place to stay, it has the most stunning view of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo and thats why I've been staying here for the past 12 years. It's close to everything, it's beautifully decorated and the view is to die for. Another great thing is the free beach chairs & umbrella & Tavis the beach guy is so nice and accommodating. We love going to McGuires,their Ruben egg rolls are great, Miller's rib special on Mondays & their prime rib special on Thursday are great as is all their food. Hamburgers at 5 Guys, breakfast at The Diner, Nick & Jims and Stewbys are also excellent.

Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Great property in a very quiet setting! We usually stay at Harborwalk, but this is so much quieter and enjoyable! Michelle (the owner) is very easy to work with and the condo was very nice and well maintained. We hope you allow us to stay again in the future.

Great first trip to Destin!

  • 5 of 5

It was our families first trip to Destin, and it was amazing! The condo was gorgeous and felt like home. Michelle was easy to work with and quickly replied to any questions I had. The beach was absolutely beautiful, and the beach service was an added perk.:) We had such a great time, and we plan on many more trips to this "home away from home."

Wonderful Vacation

As always we love staying at BR. We've been vacationing at this condo twice a year for the last 10+ years and the view never gets old. The condo is always clean and in good condition. Thank you Michelle for all our wonderful vacations at your condo.
