Private Homes house description

I invite you to come waste away in 'My Margaritaville'! Break away from your worries to enjoy all this lovely beach treasure has to offer. Sitting just one lot back from the beach on historic Tang-O-Mar road in Sandestin, 'My Margaritaville' is a fully equipped three bedroom, two bath piece of paradise. Featuring all solid pine wood floors, All appliances, fully equipped kitchen and a huge front deck overlooking unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. This house has it all! Enjoy the theme of 'Lay Back Beach' while surfboards and a giant barracuda hang from the living room ceiling. You may also want to sip a cocktail and watch a sunset while sitting on one of the many colorful Adirondack chairs on the Front deck. The house is only 75 feet from the ocean's beautiful white beaches. YES Beach chairs/umbrella available upon request for additional fees.If you desire a change of pace from the sun and sand, feel free to enjoy the 'Silver Sands Designer Factory Outlet Mall' and many of the areas finest restaurants just a short walk away! Yes, My Margaritaville is in a super low traffic subdivision. Just walk from the porch to the beach without the worry of overcrowded car traffic. Featured in the Destin Log newspaper as this is Destin you remember 25 years ago in the past. Come find your 'lost shaker of salt'. Enough of the Cheap words, Look at the 'PICTURES' Remember, we have a repeaters discount if you return within the next calendar yeay. Also, we have 6 additional properties if the house is booked for your required dates. Please call for future bookings for My Margaritaville books almost a year in advance.



This is the procedure I go thru for advance bookings.You will need to send a $500 deposit check with the dates requested in the area 'for'at the bottom of the check.. I hold the check until the departure date of this year.The person in the house this season has first right to rebook for next year. When this years guest departs and if I am not notified for rebooking, then the person with a deposit in gets the booking.If they do rebook,then I send your check back to you or you can change your dates. Complicated,but that is how it works and why it books a year in advance.Please let me know what you wish to do. You can use credit card,but I will not run the card until this years departure date. I do have multiple deposit occasionally,but the first one in will be the order of reservation.The $500 is not a security deposit,but comes off the balance when the balance is due 60 days prior to your check in date. Hope I have not confused you. Thanks for inquiring and please take the time to view my personal web site with more photos and my other properties.Thanks and have a good time at the beach. Please remember , we offer a 10% repeaters discount once you stay with us. Think of us in the future for your gulf coast vacations.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: I want what you as a guest wants. A feel good experience when I travel. I know what you want,it is what I expect.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  I stumbled upon a area in Destin that nearly everyone knew the surrounding area but not Tan O Mar. Perfect, in the middle of the action of Destin but hidden in my own super private subdivision and uncrowded beaches. Even during the season. You just can't find this in the middle of Destin.You will not understand until you experience and stay here. Throw back Destin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  No crowdes to fight for a beach site, no hunting a parking space, no waiting on a grille to open up so you can grille your meal.You can walk from the porch to your beach chair faster than the majority of the condos. You can park and even wash you car off right here below the porch. You can grille your fish or whatever right at the bottom of the steps and look at the ocean the whole time. The benefits are, you can enjoy yourself to the slow pace of Destin or just drive 1000 yards or so to the fast pace of Destin. You make the choice.
