200 STEPS TO PRIVATE BEACH ACCESS! The 'Boomerang Beach House', with THE BACKYARD!! Flat screen TVs and DVD players in every bedroom and living area. Scraped wood floors in the 3 king suites and on the stairs. A 'best of area' backyard with 18 Palm trees for that upscale resort living you thought you could only dream of. Xbox360 for the kids, an extensive video collection as well as games and books for all ages. Enjoy the comfort of the Egyptian cotton sheets and premium bedding sets. Each floor has its own new HVAC unit for comfort throughout. Amenities galore, we want you coming back!

Situated with just a few steps between you and the sugary white sand beaches that Destin is famous for on a private neighborhood exclusive beach. The house itself is nearly 4200 sf with another 1000 sf spread out over 5 private balconies and porches! You will enjoy the shops of the Silver Sands Premium Outlets and restaurants just blocks away.

Layout: 1st floor: 1st Queen bunk room, 2nd Queen bunk room, Full bathroom, Hall bunk room, Laundry Room, 2 car garage filled with beach equipment for your enjoyment as well as a 2nd refrigerator for your use.

Let the kids or teens enjoy their own private haven! Each bunk room offers queen over queen built-in permanent bunk beds. 32' flat screen TV with built in DVD to keep entertained even during down time. Separate bathroom with outside door is convenient for the nice over-sized pool compared to the typical Destin pool. Twin over twin bunks in the hallway bring the sleep total up to a comfortable and impressive 10 on the 1st floor.

2nd floor: Main living room, Kitchen, Dining area, Wet Bar, King bedroom, Full bathroom, Half bath.

Enjoy watching a DVD on the 60' flat screen from the comfortable sleeper/sofa or matching love seat. Or just enjoy curling up and reading a good novel in the luxurious chair and ottoman while the kids and mom or dad are off fighting the waves. The living room flows into the dining area where you will enjoy a fabulous large dining table for 6 with water hyacinth chairs and 4 matching bar stools along the counter for plenty of seating. The attached wet bar area offers plenty of ice with the separate ice maker. 3 sets of French doors lead to the very spacious balcony over looking the backyard retreat. Enjoy the shaded overhang while still seeing all the action unfold beneath you. The kitchen is a gourmet's dream! Stainless everything and granite counter tops with plenty of storage.

The 1st of 3 King 'retreat' bedrooms is located on the second floor. This Master bedroom features a pillow top king bed. Step through the French doors and enjoy the oversized private balcony where you can sit and wile your time away. Or pop a DVD in and wind down a perfect day enjoying the 40' flat screen.

3rd floor: 2nd Living room, 2nd Master King bedroom, 3rd Master King bedroom (each attached with bathroom with tile showers and separate jetted tubs).

This living room is great for the kids to enjoy watching a DVD away from the parents or playing on the supplied XBox (with a few games or feel free to bring your own - just make sure they don't spend all their time indoors on their vacation!). The couch pulls out to a queen bed for those larger groups. French doors lead to the outside balcony overlooking the pool and backyard retreat, and glimpses of what you came to Destin for - our Beautiful Emerald Ocean!

Off the living room is the 2nd King pillow top Master with generous oversized palatial bathroom. Lose yourself in this large room with plenty space. The large closet also has all the toddler items you might need such as a porta-crib, baby monitor, etc... Step outside on the balcony and enjoy any activities going on in the back yard (such as the vacation ping-pong tournament or pool championship). Another 40' flat screen and DVD allows for that perfect wind down.

The 3rd King Master retreat located on the front side of the house, enjoys its own large private balcony. This generous sized room features another pillow top king bed as well as a chaise that can be used as a twin as well. The large bathroom keeps the luxurious feel going with the jetted tub or walk-in tile shower.

The back yard is truly special and a wonderful way to spend the time when you are not at the beach. The large pool is the perfect fresh water compliment to our wonderful Emerald Gulf. Pool table - check, ping-pong table - check, hot tub - check, custom baggo set - check. Activities for everyone and we also feature a gas grill and an outdoor shower to clean up with before going back inside. The shaded 'tiki-hut' offers a nice area to enjoy a snack or meal. With plenty of lounge chairs as well as stackable chairs to accommodate larger parties, be as active as you want or just soak up the sun.

About Jon or Jennifer

Hi, we are the Duke family. Married for 24 years and have 3 boys. We just recently moved to Destin from the Memphis area. We LOVE being locals! We are enjoying being close to the beach, fishing, and boating!

If you need us, we are just a phone call away!

Jon or Jennifer purchased this house in 2012

Why Jon or Jennifer chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We fell in love with this particular location because of the family friendly neighborhood and the close proximity to the private beach! All of the homes that surround us are vacation rentals so everyone is relaxed and on vacation as well, and that makes a big difference!

There are two fabulous restaurants within walking distance and a great coffee and ice cream spot right around the corner.

We loved the Destin area so much that we just recently moved from the Memphis area and became LOCALS! Living the Dream! It is drivable from so many areas throughout the country. We love all of the family oriented restaurants and activities in the area. The kids like the water park, Big Kahuna, and Mom and Dad like the many patio restaurants with live music to enjoy a bite with the family while sipping on some great beach concoctions . Of course the crown jewel is the sugary white beach where we spend many hours.

What makes this house unique

The reason we chose this location is three-fold. 1st, the location is UNBEATABLE!! We absolutely love being steps from the beach. We can come and go from the beach as often as we like without having to make it a major production loading up and unloading every time. 2nd, the private beach offers the opportunity to enjoy our famous white sand beaches without the crowds from many of the public beaches. 3rd, THE BACKYARD!!! No other property in the area has all the features out back that we just put in. Generous sized pool, hot tub, resort quality outdoor pool table and ping pong table, sand baggo playing area (think corn hole), built in gas grill, outdoor shower, lighted tiki hut to get out of the sun in the day or play cards at night, plenty of resort quality furniture including 6 chaise loungers to sun in and 2 6-seat dining tables - all this surrounded by 18 premium Washingtonia Palm trees that are lit up at night. Electricity in the tiki hut, so be sure to bring your margarita machine and relaxxx! It may be hard, but just be sure to go down and enjoy that world class white sand beach that you came here for!

We have 8 years in the Vacation rental industry and are attuned to what guests want. You will be working with us rather than some third party that does not have a direct investment in the house. We want you to come " Right Back"!

Lots Of Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Boomerang House. Jennifer and her "associates" were awesome. Anything we needed they were right there. The beach was great! Private and perfect for the adults and kids. The first couple of days were just spent hanging out in the backyard, it was great. Pool, ping-pong, swimming, hot tub and grilling out...what more could you ask for. If you have the opportunity, check it out. Thanks and we will be "right back". Go to Pompano Joes at 3pm :)

Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

Our second family vacation at the Boomerang Beach House and it was just as we remembered. Jennifer makes it so easy and stress-free, even with six adults and four teenagers. It's the first time we have returned to the same house as we usually like to try something new each vacation, however, we enjoyed Fall break so much here last year that we repeated it this year too! The two oldest grandsons will be in college next year at this time so we don't know if we will be back for Fall break, but hopefully we will be able to enjoy this lovely home with the perfect location again with all of us able to be here. Thank you again, Jennifer, for all you do to make this such a perfect place for large family vacations!

We loved the Boomerang house!! We decided to have a beach wedding and the Boomerang house was the perfect house to accomodate all of our needs and our guests. Our bridal party all stayed in the house with us so we were all able to get ready together and walk across the street to the beach and begin our ceremony then walk back to enjoy some food we had catered from Jim N Nick's BBQ and have a relaxed get together rather than a formal reception. Our bridal party was able to enjoy time with us and each other as well as venture off the the boardwalk and other beached to do their own thing. We absolutely loved Pompano Joes, the coffee house and being able to rent the scooters right up the street for a whole day and travel around. The backyard was absolutely perfect for such a large group to entertain for a week. We highly recommend this house to anyone traveling with a large group. Thanks again Duke family for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful rental home!

House lives up to its name - we came back!

  • 5 of 5

After having a wonderful stay at the Boomerang Beach House fall 2014, we returned for a girls getaway including four children under the age of four. This location is ideal only steps from the beach, coffee shop, winery, and ice cream store. The house includes EVERYTHING you would need from top to bottom. In the garage we loaded up the cart with toys, towels, umbrella and chairs and let the toddlers help push it to the beach. The end of April was a perfect time to visit with children. The weather was in the 80s, the private beach was not crowded, and we were immediately seated at a restaurant the one night we didn't cook. The pool was heated which allowed us to swim in the afternoons into the evenings just relaxing with dinner at home. The Boomerang is fully stocked with all the kitchen accessories and equipment you would need to cook and grill at home. Between the beach and all the house amenities (Backyard games, DVDs, wifi) we didn't need to go anywhere else. It was our own private paradise! Jon and Jenny have a beautiful and luxurious home and are so easy to communicate with that I know my family will continue to boomerang back to making memories for years to come.

We are just steps to our private beach access! Our location can't be beat! So close, in fact, that when someone in your family forgets a boogie board or snack, the house is just a heartbeat away!

Fabulous restaurants are within walking distance of the house or grill out right in our backyard on our fabulous gas grill while the family swims and has ping pong and pool table tournaments!

Hire a expert sand castle expert to give your family lessons on sculpting a magical sand castle! I have seen there demonstrations and tips! What fun for the whole family!

The Silversands Outlet Mall is within 1 miles of the house and has fantastic shopping. The Destin Commons Mall is just 3 miles away and contains a great movie theater.

Big Kahuna, a water slide park, is just 5 miles down the road. There is also an amusement park called the Track Destin that has Go-Karts, mini gold, kiddie rides, and more.

Bowling anyone? A great new island themed 16 lane bowling alley and grill just opened up last year and is called Uncle Buck's FishBowl and Grill! Our family has had great times competing while eating appetizers and drinking cocktails and sodas while bowling. Sports games are also televised on giant screens!
