The updated kitchen is outfitted with the latest Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, new mosaic glass backsplash, and large under mount sink. Ceramic tile and beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the home add to the charm. Each guest suite offers brand new Serta bedding, ample storage, and a 32” flat screen TV with built in DVD. You can enjoy the refreshing gulf breezes from each of the four covered porches.

The home is just steps away from the custom designed community pool and a short 3 minute walk to the sugar white beaches and the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. There are no major roads to cross as the neighborhood is located on the Gulf side of Scenic Hwy 98. Sandy Bottoms is located within walking distance to Winn Dixie, an ice cream shop, Starbucks, The Surf Hut, Chick fil A, Silver Sands Outlet Mall and just a short drive to golf venues and fine and casual dining at Grand Boulevard and Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin. The picket fence-lined private street has extensive landscaping and will be perfect for an evening stroll. This home features a private drive with covered parking, a gas grill, and an outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing the sand after a fun day at the beach.

On the FIRST floor you will find the master bedroom which has a king bed with designer bedding, double closets, a private master bath room with a separate shower, soaking tub, and vanity.

On the same floor there is a Guest Bedroom with a Queen bed and cheery bright bedding. There is also a private bath and a large wall mounted flat panel television with DVD player. From this bedroom there is a deck for sitting with views of the serenely landscaped neighborhood. Conveniently located, adjacent to the bedrooms is the laundry with a full size washer and dryer. On the SECOND floor is the living room which opens onto another covered porch which is the ideal retreat to enjoy your favorite book or beverage amid the tops of the palms. The living area boasts of coastal charm with a brand new oversize comfy sleeper sofa, 3 bright colorful chairs and a large wall mounted flat panel high definition television with Bluray that has the ability to access Net Flix and Pandora. The home is also equipped with Wi-Fi. This kitchen is updated with NEW Whirlpool stainless appliances, a mosaic glass backsplash, and beautiful newly installed granite countertops with seating for 3 at the breakfast bar. There is a dining table with seating for 6 for those special meals after a long day at the beach or pool. On this floor is a guest bedroom for the children with a fun white twin over double bunk and a twin pull out trundle bed. You can keep the younger ones in your family occupied with the large wall mounted flat panel television with DVD player and HDMI jack for your gaming system. Also on this floor is a bath room with a shower/bath tub combination. Up the stairs on the THIRD floor is a loft bedroom with a Queen bed, large flat panel television with a DVD player, and the most comfortable red chair and half with an ottoman. The many windows provide panoramic views of the area including peek-a-boo views of the Gulf of Mexico.

About Kim

We live in Atlanta and enjoy spending time with our family at Sandy Bottoms as often as possible.

Kim purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Kim chose Miramar Beach

We have vacationed in the Scenic Hwy 98 area for years and decided the time was right to purchase this home that our family could enjoy for years to come.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of Sandy Bottoms couldn't be better. It is close to all of our favorite things; Baytowne Wharf, Destin Commons, Grand Boulevard, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and of course all of the great restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the manager


We stayed here during spring break of 2013 what a beautiful place. We had teenagers with us and there was enough room for everyone. Close to everything especially the beach and shopping any kind you wanted. loved it would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week at Sandy Bottoms with our older teenagers and I would highly recommend it! It was a beautiful home and the location is fantastic - a 3 minute walk to the beach and close to restaurants and shopping. The owner was great to work with and very responsive to questions. We had a wonderful time!

This is the perfect beach cottage!! Not only was it beautiful but it feels very safe and it's very clean and comfortable. The owners were wonderful to work with, very kind and pleasant. They responded to me right away when I had questions. This is a perfect location. It was a 2-3 minute walk to the beach and pool and walking distance to Silver Sands Outlets and close to resturants. I would love to stay again and I highly recommend it!

Exceeds expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week at this lovely home and loved every minute! The location was perfect and so convenient to shopping, restaurants, bicycle rides, and beach access. The community has a wonderful beach vibe that feels as if you have been swept away to the islands. It is a darling community with a closed road and access. We felt totally safe about our kids riding bikes and playing ball in the road. And the pool was the perfect size for an afternoon refresher. The house was super clean and had everything we needed. The décor was so tasteful and classy. We enjoyed the house so much and would recommend for sure!!!

Home decor is beautiful. Equipped with everything you need. Nice and quiet community walking distance from the beautiful beach. We were 2 families with people from 7 to 72 yrs old and everybody had a great time and enjoy our stay. Close to so many options to eat, shop and entertainment. We will be back! Owner and management company made all easy for us. Highly recommended.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely house! Everything was decorated so cute, and we loved being in your home. We used it to celebrate my kids' graduation from high school with our whole family. It was a rare treat to have a place that could accommodate our whole family plus all 4 cousins, an aunt, and grandparents. We enjoyed being together in your clean, well-maintained, and beautiful house. We really loved having ChickFila and Starbucks around the corner, too!

50th Wedding Anniversary Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this summer and instead of a big party they wanted all of our family to spend a rare week together at the beach, their favorite vacation spot. It was perfect! The house was clean and comfortable. I loved the three stories which made it possible to spread out a bit. The walk to the beach was short. We loved the location!
