Overview

Miramar Beach Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Gulf Front Townhome, 3 levels, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

'Everyone needs to have their own beach.' Yours is waiting for you here...

Located Mirmamar Beach on the pure white quartz sand beach of South Walton, BahiaCabana is now under owner management, and we are the perfect choice for your exceptional beach vacation. Pure Luxury awaits you at our GULF front town-home located in SandDollar Townhomes. Meticulously renovated and professionally furnished, with no expense spared, BahiaCabana offers granite counter tops, stainless appliances, custom cabinetry, 7 flat panel televisions, and furniture you would expect in only the nicest beachfront homes Miramar Beach has to offer. If you have discriminating taste, our beach home is the place for you. If you have ever walked into a home and said 'Wow' then you know what we are talking about. The 3 balconies and beachfront deck all offer up endless views of the Gulf of Mexico. Each of the balconies are perfect for sipping your morning coffee or sipping your afternoon cocktail. You will be sending photos of the your views of the Emerald Coast to your friends while you are sitting on the balcony trying to schedule your next vacation.

We often get questions about how to access the beach from our home. The door which provides access to the beach is at the back of the lower level of our home. This door is just next to the lower level bedroom. Through this door, you go down a straight and sturdy set of steps, which leads you to the beach level deck and to the sand. We chose this design when we rebuilt the decks in 2012. We preferred to have only 1 access to the beach so we could have more living space on each of the 3 balconies.

WE DO NOT RENT TO SPRING BREAK GROUPS. WE WILL ONLY RENT TO FAMILIES AND GROUPS ALL OVER THE AGE OF 25.

We are lucky enough to be local to Destin, and we want to share some local knowledge with you. Please see our insider's guide toward the bottom of this page for some of our favorite local places.

PADDLEBOARDING! #SUP, SAVE ON PADDLEBOARD RENTAL

We have a 10'6' paddleboard available to rent for your stay. Paddleboarding is a great way to experience the Gulf waters. We have seen many dolphins, schools of rays, and even a huge sea turtle while cruising on our paddleboards. SUP can be a anything from a gentle cruise to a serious workout. Let us know if you would like more information.

About Marla Diddle

We are Florida transplants from Texas and Ohio. We have both loved the Destin area for many years, and we are now lucky enough to call the Destin area our home. We love spending as much time in, on and around the Gulf as we can.

Marla Diddle purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Marla Diddle chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We absolutely love Miramar Beach & South Walton's Beaches. We chose our beach home in Sanddollar because it is Gulf-front, spacious and the beach is private. Our home required a complete renovation upon purchase, so we were able to put our 'touch' on it from top to bottom. Its close proximity to our favorite hang-out, Pompano Joe's was just icing on the cake.

What makes this townhome unique

Since we have the luxury of being local, we personally check on our home, at minimum, every week. We make every effort to ensure you have a great vacation. With 3 floors of living space, everyone in your party will have plenty of room to stretch out. Our 3 balconies and beach level deck offer overly sufficient outdoor living space as well. Our top deck offers the biggest Master Bedroom deck in Sanddollar. We love it so much and are so excited to share it with you. We hope it brings you as much joy as it does us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome vacation house right off the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed to celebrate her birthday and we had a blast. I can't express how nice it was to wake up every morning with the ocean right outside the window. All the decks had a great view of the beach and the ocean. The home was clean, spacious and comfortable, the kitchen was a nice size and dishes, pots and pans were provided; which was very nice. The parking was a bit tight and backing out of the space onto the main road was a little challenging, but the traffic was slow moving, so nothing too scary. All the restaurants around the area were great and we weren't disappointed by any of the food. There are plenty of stores and shopping outlets nearby and we caught a movie at the Carmike Boulevard 10 theater.

We had a great time and would definitely return for another stay.

Thanks again!

-James A.

Everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse has everything you need for the perfect vacation! From the location to the fully stocked kitchen to the short walk to the beach, this beach front townhouse is the best of the best. Beautifully decorated in a modern decor, the open floor plan in the main living area is great for getting everyone together for meals and good conversation after a full day of laying on the beach or shopping. Marla and Gary are easy to work with and truly want you to feel at home here. This was our first time staying here and we will definitely be back!

Very nice accommodations!! Thoroughly enjoyed our vacation!! Views from deck were beautiful! !

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good vacation experience!! The condo was spacious and very clean / modern!! We really enjoyed the deck off master bedroom with coffee in the mornings!! Being directly on the beach is awesome and convenient. A few steps and you're walking by the water! Parking is tight, but we were told that we'll in advance. One of my brothernlaws bought a full sized extended cab pickup and wanted to drive it down to see what kinda mileage he'd get. So we had two big full sized extended cab trucks and our Altima ( both brother in laws had the trucks ) even though I told them about the parking being tight. Long story short, one of them parked at Popano Joe's public parking lot all week. We were still hard pressed to fit out vehicles into our spaces. The neighbors kept parking on or over the lines, but moved over when we asked them to. We made it work. Next time, we will all drive cars. LOL All in all, this place was fantastic and I would rent it again without hesitation!!! Gary and Marla are great owners to rent from and are just a phone call or text message away!! Thank you again!

Best Beach Time Ever!! May 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a girl cousin trip to Miramar Beach and rented the Bahia Cabana from Gary and Marla and had the best time!! There were 12 of us ages 55 to 70 and everyone had such a good time. The condo has easy access to the beach with three balconies if you just want to sit and enjoy the view. Marla sent us information before our trip for eating, shopping and sightseeing which was a great help to plan the day. But most days were spent sitting on the beach soaking up the sun. Will definitely try to do this again soon!!!

If you are a Beach Person, then this is the place to book. Simply walk off the beach level deck and your toes are in the white sand of the Emerald Coast! Our Gulf Front town-home is absolutely perfect whether you enjoy being in the water, on the sand or just looking at them both. All 3 of our balconies offer absolutely stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can choose to completely relax and do absolutely nothing except enjoy the beach, or you can choose to have an active stay since our beach home is right in the middle of lots of things to do!

We highly suggest the short walk down the beach for a cold beverage and appetizers or a great meal & seasonal live music at the locally famous Pompano Joe's. Po Joe's, as we locals like to call it, also has a volleyball net where you can usually always find a pick-me-up game of volleyball, and in the summer, you can rent jet skis and paddleboards. A little longer walk in the opposite direction will take you to another beach front restaurant, Whale's Tail. We love to walk to Whale's Tail in the morning for Mango daiquiris.

The Destin Harbor boasts lots and lots of family friendly things to do. Our absolute favorite thing to do in the summer is to go to the Harbor and rent a pontoon boat for the day and make the short trek to the famous Crab Island, located on the bay side of the Destin bridge. We like to finish the day on the water with dinner at The Boathouse Oyster Bar which has live music every evening in the summer. AJ's is also a great place to catch live music or catch the game on its new and huge outdoor TV screen.

You Fishermen are in luck; Destin is known as The World's Luckiest Fishing Village. You have lots of options at the Harbor for fishing from private charters to large group charters. The first weekend is October at the Harbor boasts the Destin Seafood Festival. The Fishing Rodeo runs every year from October 1-31.

For you die-hard shoppers, you are only a handful of miles from the Destin Commons, an open air mall with lots of shopping and great places to eat. There you will find Bass Pro Shop, Destin's biggest movie theater, which boasts an IMAX screen,and Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl, the coolest bowling alley around, where you feel like you are bowling underwater. Even closer than the Destin Commons is the Silver Sands Outlet Mall...need we say more?

When the kids are ready for some pool time, Big Kahuna's Water and Adventure Park is about 11 minutes away. On the way to Big Kahuna's is The Track, a family fun place with go-cart racing, bumper boats, mini-golf and much more for kids of all ages.

For the all the Golfers in the family there are about 8 Golf Courses all within an 8 mile radius.

We could go on and on but you really need to book and experience it all for yourself and family!
