Beach Retreat condo description

This pet friendly, non-smoking unit, located in the Beach Retreat Condominium complex, is exceptional. One of the largest one bedroom floor plans in the area, the 945 square feet gulf front unit sleeps six and boasts a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The expansive living area overlooks the white sugar sands of Miramar Beach and the sound of the crashing waves on the shore fill the space. The fourth floor balcony offers chaise lounges and a table and chairs for morning coffee or a relaxing afternoon with a good book.

The watercolor inspired décor offers a luxurious master suite for adults while offering a child friendly atmosphere for the easy comfort of vacation living with the kids. The suite also features a private bath and an entertainment center with ample storage housing a 27-inch TV and DVD player. The cozy bunkroom space is perfect for the children -- complete with TV/DVD/VCR combo unit for their own nighttime entertainment. A queen-size sleeper sofa accommodates additional guests.


Destin offers unlimited dining opportunities, but if staying in is your preferred dining experience, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for an extended vacation stay. The dining table accommodates six and the bar comfortably seats an additional four.

The unit boasts ten foot ceilings, tile floors in the living, kitchen and hallway areas, central heating and air conditioning, a kitchen pantry, full size washer and dryer, trash chutes and on-site security.

The beautiful Tuscan exterior of this four story, 44-unit complex accentuates the luxurious living accommodations. The Beach Retreat complex features 300 feet of private gulf frontage, a 3,000 square foot heated pool, whirlpool, fitness center, barbecue grills, picnic area and sundeck, all surrounded by the lush tropical Florida landscape.

We would love to have you and appreciate you considering our place! And if others are traveling with you or you'd like a larger space, we also have a 3-bedroom poolside cottage right next door in Maravilla. Email me for cottage rates.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Growing up in Alabama, the Florida Panhandle was always our choice for a beach get-away. When we were younger, Destin was a sleepy little community with the most beautiful white sandy beaches and very little to do. Over the years, we've watched it grow into a beautiful beach resort community with the finest accommodations, dining, shopping and wonderful family acitivites. We've enjoyed a family cottage in Destin for many, many years, and added our ocean view condominium just a few years ago. The sun, the sound of the ocean, the sea breeze and the feel of the smooth white sand beneath your feet just does something to relax the soul and we find that peace everytime we are there.

                          Why the Owner Chose Beach Retreat:
                          Beach Retreat is in the Miramar Beach area in between the city limits of Destin and the SanDestin Beach Resort area. We enjoy the convenience of having great shopping and restaurants just a few miles in either direction and the incredible ocean views without the hustle and bustle of downtown. The low rise, Italian look of the exterior and one of the largest one-bedroom floor plans with high ceilings was also a plus, but the view and the 3000 square foot swimming pool sealed the deal.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          We most enjoy the view and sound of the surf from our balcony. Our children most enjoy building sandcastles, searching for sea shells, snorkeling, the volleyball games that pick up along the beach, and boating in the bay. We also enjoy riding our bikes along the bike and walking trail to a park just a few miles away, and often will stop by the sidewalk cafe for a smoothie on the way back. The family concerts at Baytowne are wonderful in the evenings and the movies are close by as well.
