Why Kristen chose Miramar Beach

In 1997, we were lucky enough to live in this area for a year, before being transferred out for work. While here, we fell in love with the Emerald Coast, and have vacationed here often ever since. We have always wanted to have a vacation and potential retirement home here, and finally found this perfect home to fulfill our dreams.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Owners -- Thank you, thank you, thank you! We truly appreciate that you all made an exception and allowed such a large family reunion occur in your home. Every detail was appreciated from the razors in the showers to the built-in blinds in the doors. Your home is beautifully decorated and truly comfortable. Thank you for allowing us to experience such a beautiful environment. We will definitely return! God bless you all, The Roman Family (This comment was originally entered by our guest into the Guest Book located at the Emerald Coast Retreat and has been faithfully transcribed into this on-line format).

Great Vacation Home Rental from Wonderful People at an Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

The rental experience was wonderful. The description of the home aligns with reality. The home was both beautiful and has a perfect layout for groups. Our family really enjoyed being able to be together in the same open space for meals and then having the ability to separate as desired at other times. The third floor (Tower) is where our teenagers hung out and slept. The video game and their having their own kitchenette worked out well.

Kristen is such a wonderful person for first making their beautiful home available for others to enjoy and then for setting the bar for what a rental experience should be! She contacted me directly to confirm the rental request and provided a great overview of the home and the area. Additionally, she provided the information we needed to ensure we had a great vacation as well as quickly responded to any questions we asked.

Kristen's caring nature is reflected in her beautiful home. There were a couple of welcome baskets and toiletries in each of the four (4) bathrooms. The kitchen was equipped with all the dishes and utensils needed to prepare meals for the family and the laundry room was supplied with laundry detergent and dryer sheets.

The outdoor space is great too! Between the deck space and having the pool right next door to the home, we spent plenty of time outside when we weren't at the beach. Although the pool is for use by other homes in the community, the majority of the time it was just our family. And when there were others, we all joined in for a great game of Marco Polo!

We had a group of 20 and were VERY comfortable! If you are looking for a GREAT vacation rental in a beautiful home for an excellent value and from wonderful people, then this is definitely the property for you!

Thank you again Kristen for sharing your home with my family! We had an unforgettable vacation experience.

A week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Corrigan's Emerald Coast Retreat is remarkable in so many ways.

1. Owners could not be nicer or more responsive. ex. Gas grill didn't work; brand new Kitchen Aid was delivered the next morning!

2. Attention to detail was impeccable. Emailed list of codes, directions, and helpful phone numbers were sent the week before our visit.

3. Fully equipped kitchen including two coffee makers as well as Keurig, Keurig cups and baskets of snacks.

4. Laundry room had supplies, including beach towels.

5. Dvds, games, and cards.

6. Bathrooms had complimentary toiletries.

7. Walk to the beach made easier because of the beach wagon. Loaded it with the chairs and umbrellas and off we went.

8. The pool next door is bigger than a residential pool, has tables, chairs and umbrellas, two outdoor showers and restrooms! Literally steps from the home.

We "shared" the pool with very few others and not every day we were there!

9. There are several parking spots right outside the front of the house.

10. Gracious neighborhood near restaurants and grocery store.

An amazing trip for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Coast Retreat blew our group away from the minute we drove up to the property. The three story beach house has balconies on every floor, two decks for dining/BBQing, and a community pool steps away. The interior is spacious on every floor with high ceilings and beautiful decorations. All the rooms were as we expected, comfortably sleeping our 20 person group without any sleeper sofas. The owner also provided many extras amenities like pool toys, keurig cups, beach towels, and mini toiletries in the bathrooms. Since we didn't rent a car we were able to use Amazon Pantry to order non-perishable food for our group. The CVS and Winn Dixie were both a short distance a way for all of our other needs. We were able to walk to the beach everyday (only a block away) to enjoy the beautiful white sand and clear blue water! An overall amazing experience for our group from Maryland! Hopefully we will get an opportunity to get together and visit Emerald Coast Retreat again someday!

Great house! Loved by all in our large group!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Kristen's beautiful house and appreciated all the extras! The house is decorated beautifully while remaining cozy and relaxing. It was actually much larger than I was expecting ! Many extras ( Keurig w k cups, razors, beach toys, board games, movies, wii w/ games, snacks) ...were there for us to enjoy. We liked the lay-out of 3 separate floors so each of the 3 families had some separate space, but we loved that we could all enjoy the living spaces downstairs and never felt crowded. All the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed playing cards nightly at the large table. Location is quiet w no traffic but close enough to get to restaurants and shopping. Easy walk to the beach and Alvin's Island. We contacted the chair/umbrella service that Kristen gave the number to, and that worked great- nice to always have a space waiting and set up! Kristen was great to work with from first email to letter w/ prompt deposit refund! The pool was next door and as other reviewers mentioned there was never anyone in it but us. The beach was beautiful and not crowded and easy to get to. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived and our expectations were exceeded! We all said we would return and would recommend to our friends and families!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5


I consider myself a fairly well-rounded traveler and I would definitely return to this house! Great location in a great area! Destin/Miramar Beach has the most beautiful beaches and water out of anywhere that I have visited in the US.

This house has everything you need!! Plenty of room for your whole family to sleep. Great open kitchen and family room allows enough space for everyone to get together and eat/watch tv/play games.

Location was also great. 5-15 drive to groceries and any kind of restaurant you wanted. The kids ranged from ages 2-20 and they all found something to keep them entertained during this vacation.

The pool is right next door and we had it mostly to ourselves the whole week. We usually went to the beach in the morning (about a 10 minute walk) and then would come back and enjoy the pool in the afternoon while our little one took a nap. There was one or two days when there was at most 3 other people in the pool, but there is more than enough chairs and tables for everyone.

The owners were fantastic to work with and I would recommend their home to anyone!! I hope to make it back soon!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family tries to get together every few years since we live from Oregon to Florida and all in-between. It is hard to find an affordable house big enough for my 5 children, 7 grandchildren, spouses, my husband, me, and my elderly mother. One of my daughter-in-laws found this home and it was perfect!

We had a wonderful time playing games at the house, swimming at the pool directly next door, going to the beach, shopping, and had so many places to visit including para-sailing!

The home is very well stocked with everything we needed and it is beautifully furnished too!

Thank you so much for the fabulous vacation!
