After visiting this neighborhood, you will understand why so many families choose to return year after year.

They started Beach Reunion with two rental houses they built and owned on 30-A. Today Beach Reunion manages 25 homes in the Destin and South Walton areas of Florida.

Beach Reunion, LLC purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the manager

I loved staying at the beach house. It had plenty of space for my family and I to enjoy and be comfortable. We had difficulty with the air in the downstairs bedrooms but the staff at beach reunion came to work on it whenever we called. I would stay at this home again if my family 24 ever decided to visit destin again.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful Labor Day weekend at Aurora. This is the perfect home for a large family. We had 16 adults and 4 kids. The home is spacious enough for privacy but provides enough common space for family time. The teenagers really enjoyed having the 4th floor tower area with bunk beds and their own balcony.The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and enough utensils for cooking large meals. The private beach is a simple short walk and we really enjoyed having our beach chairs and umbrellas set up for us everyday. We rented a golf cart and that was the best decision ever! The community allows for utilizing the golf cart to make the short trip to the grocery store and other shops in the area. The locals are very friendly. We would definitely consider returning to Aurora for our annual family vacation.

Great home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a beach wedding in Destin and wanted to find a home that was large enough for most of our family and friends to stay. This house was perfect! We were able to segregate certain people that may not want to be on the same floor, as well as keep groups together that wanted to be. We had 24 guests and still had room leftover! This house is perfect for multiple families - a pool, pool table, plenty of bunk beds, 2 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, and more! It is a short 2 block walk to the private beach access, which had way fewer people than the public beach areas we drove by. We could also walk to Pompano Joe's, Alvins (for souvenirs or beer :)) and to a local coffee shop. Beach Reunion was fantastic to work with! Carrie, the concierge, was sooo helpful in answering questions via email and getting our HOA permit set up for the wedding and reception at the house! It took a lot off my plate while trying to plan other pieces of the wedding. Thank you, Carrie - you're an angel!!!

This house was great, perfiect for the 17 people we had staying. All my guest raved about how great the beds were. Best sleep I've ahd away from home. We had slow drain in one of the showers and they came within 10 minutes and fixed it and had no more issues with it. I called and spoke to the ladies in the office serveral times and everyone was very accomidating, porfessional and nice. I will be back next year.

Great House

This house is great for all ages. The house has nice furniture and newly updated paint. The pool area was great for our kids. The beach is a simple walk down the street. We had a great trip and will stay here again in the future.

Loved Aurora

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Aurora for 8 days. This home is very comfortable and accommodating to large or small groups. It is 2 very short blocks to a beautiful stretch of private beach. Walk in either direction and in a short time you will be at one of the only beach side restaurants in the area. The Whales Tail, or Pompano Joes. Also, a new Wynn Dixie market is approx. 2 miles away without having to get on busy 98. The outlet mall is right beyond WD. We love the location!

We went to the fish market and prepared meals in the huge, stocked kitchen and cooked on the nice poolside grill. The kitchen had everything we needed, plenty of dishes, coffee makers, grill tools, bowls, cups etc. We chose the king bedroom on the 3rd floor with beautiful windows and doors to a large balcony. Our large en-suite bath had a double vanity, tile shower and Jacuzzi tub. The bed and bedding was very comfortable and very nice. All of the bedrooms were equally as nice with different sized beds and various configured baths. Very clean! Lots of balconies to enjoy, especially for coffee in the morning. Comfortable seating inside and out.

After spending time on the beach we would come back to the house to get in the pool and then in the hot tub. We spent time sitting around the pool, listening to music; very relaxing. There is an outside shower to wash the beach sand/salt off as well. I loved being able to do this. We would walk back to the beach around 6:00 pm, and take a short walk as the sun set along the beach. The sunsets from the private beach are simply magnificent.

We liked the neighborhood feel. Quiet, very few cars passing by, people walking their dogs in the morning. Nice change from being in one of the more commercial areas but with lots to offer very close.

The management company, Beach Reunions, were very responsive and very pleasant to deal with. We had a small issue that they wanted to take care of immediately. They got back to me in minutes even though it could have waited. Wow! How often does that happen? They have a concierge who went above and beyond for us. Thanks Carrie! If you rent the Aurora you must get in touch with her. She was always quickly available and extremely helpful.

Overall, the combination of the great house, perfect location and the management group made this an excellent vacation for us.
