About Beach Reunion

Beach Reunion is a small company that manages vacation rental properties for individual owners in the Destin & South Walton areas. We were founded in 2002 and have grown to manage more than 30 beach houses and condominiums. Being a small rental company, customer satisfaction is our number one goal. Spend your next vacation with Beach Reunion and see why most of our guests are repeat guests!

Beach Reunion purchased this house in 2012

Why Beach Reunion chose Miramar Beach

We love wading in our pool overlooking the lake! We wanted a home where we could easily walk to the beach. Our home is mere yards from our neighborhood's private access point. We wanted a more affordable home so that we could pass along the savings to renters and thought a few yards wasn't that big of a deal! Have a great time in Destin and enjoy our home!

What makes this house unique

Knot a Care is located just steps from the beach and across the street from restaurants, pharmacy, grocery store, and much more.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We recently stayed at Knot A Care in Destin, Florida. We have rented several homes in the area over the years and I have to say this was the easiest reservation I have ever made. The ladies in the reservation office were so nice and very helpful. I waited until the last minute but they found me a wonderful place! The concierge service was wonderful! They were right there the first day making sure we had everything we needed and letting us know they would help us with anything! They checked in with us during the week just to make sure we were fine. We actually had a few questions during our stay and they were quick with answers! Then, as we reluctantly left for home at the end of the week, we discovered my husband had left his cell phones. All we had to do was text the concierge office and she went over to Knot A Care, picked up the phones and took them to the fed ex office and shipped them to our home! Now that is above and beyond what anyone else would do!!! Thank you Beach Reunion for making our vacation even more special than we dreamed it could be!!!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had booked this property in July for a 3 week vacation in September starting on the 8th. Living in Naples with Hurricane Irma staring down on us we asked if we could arrive a day early..not only could we but the owner waived the nightly fee for us because of our situation.

Mom and I packed up the car along with our 2 Chihuahua's and started the 14 hour trek to Miramar Beach.

We arrived exhausted but so grateful to be there. Minutes after arriving we were greeted by Jim and Carrie who proceeded to help unpack our car!

This house is exactly as advertised! Updated kitchen, great outdoor deck with lots of seating area's, splash pool, steps to the beach and close to Winn Dixie and many other favorite attractions.

While there were only 4 of us for 1 week and just my Mom and I for the other 2 weeks...this home can easily accommodate a large group.

We had a small problem with the on demand cable but it was immediately taken care of by the Beach Reunion staff.

We enjoyed the sugary sandy beach and as promised the chairs and umbrella were there for us daily.

We saw the Blue Angels practice, took in many of the"local" Happy Hours, and enjoyed many sunset's.

I would highly recommend this home!

Thank you for an amazing vacation and providing us with the best possible distraction from Hurricane Irma.

Made up for the rain

  • 5 of 5

Despite the rain the house brought sunshine to our vacation. We arrived to a beautifully designed house with a patio overlooking the lake and with just a few steps to the beach, the location was awesome. Inside was even more exceptional with a full gourmet kitchen, impressive hardwood floors, and we were particularly impressed with an awesome patio esp. the pool/sauna (changing lights was a nice touch). The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and love the fact that each room has its own bathroom. The wifi was strong and grateful the cable TV was clear and had numerous channels (we were able to watch most of the olympic events). Highly recommend Knot-A-Care and would return again.

Beach Reunion Rentals- 5 O'Clock Somewhere

  • 5 of 5

Upon planning our destination wedding I quickly became discouraged due to the stress of finding someplace just right and within our budget. I stumbled upon Beach Reunion Rentals' website and as much as I loved the rental options I was super hesitant to book a $1600/night mansion for our wedding--not knowing how wedding turn out there, what kind of regulations we needed to plan on following, hidden fees, etc etc. Fortunately, I was acquainted with Laura at Beach Reunion Rentals. With her patient and kind personality I was quickly confident enough to place my deposit and decide on having our wedding at this gorgeous beach house. Had it not been for the staff at Beach Reunion, I would have never just blindly taken that plunge to have our wedding in a place I knew nothing about. Laura sat on the phone with me whenever needed and described the house when I needed vision for wedding planning (chair placement, DJ setup, food setup, etc). Not only was Laura super nice during the planning, but she was patient enough to take constant credit card payments over the phone as I divided everyone's stay and paid accordingly. During our stay, the staff exceeded my expectations. Some lights were out and it took no less than an hour for someone to arrive ready to fix anything we needed. I had the pleasure of speaking with Ally during our stay as well, as she was super helpful with the parking situation in making sure our guests were where they needed to be. To top it all off, some of my family left some belongings in the dryer and Laura so kindly shipped them back to her...with all of that, we are now in the process of booking that same house for next years vacation. I can't speak highly enough of Laura, Carrie, and Ally. The staff is truly fantastic and their customer service played a big part in how fantastic our wedding turned out to be. I wouldn't recommend any other rental house company or any other staff to help make your vacation spectacular. Thank you so much ladies, keep doing what you're doing because you were all a joy to work with. :)

Perfect and stress-free paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has not had a "family vacation" since they graduated from college (5 yrs). So we thought that this would be the perfect place for the 5 of us to just hang out and enjoy 6 days of fun and relaxation. We cannot say enough about this place. "Knot a care" house provided us with the best of everything, from an amazing spacious home with so many amenities, to shopping near by you can walk to, a beautiful white beach that is just steps away, an amazing selection of restaurants to choose from, and exploring other local towns near by that offer a variety of things to see and do. Laura and Carrie also helped make this a vacation stress free and one that we will all remember. Our children told us that they would like to do it again!!!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to stay at this home but our 10th year to stay in Shipwatch. We love Knot A Care for many reasons. We can bring our dog, we love the location, the house is beautiful, close to the beach and the water is always beautiful. We will continue to stay here!

Perfect Location, Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 16 college kids going on our last spring break, and the folks at Knot a Care and Beach Reunion made it a trip we will never forget. Laura and Paige are some of the most friendly and customer service oriented people you will ever meet, and made the whole process of paying for the condo ease and hassle-free. The condo is gorgeous, 20 steps from the beach and a 5 minute walk to Winn Dixie Grocery and KFC/Taco Bell (which was great for our group). A half mile walk down the beach was the party area (Whales Tail), which allowed for a good mix of partying and pleasure since the beach out front was never crowded. Couldn't of asked for a better house and people to work with. Would stay again without a doubt. Ms. Carrie gets a ten star rating, for checking up on us everyday and being understanding that we were a college group. She was awesome! Thanks again! **Only issue was the hottub never really worked even though we payed for it. Not sure what happened but not a big deal at all (they refunded it partially for us!)
