Private Homes house description

Welcome to the private gulf-front coastal community of Shipwatch. This community is located on the pristine white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Nestled within the gates of this classic beach cottage style community sits, Knot A Care.

This lovely 4 bedroom vacation home stands quietly by a wooden bridge and overlooks a beautiful lake. The decorative gazebo and central beach access to over 400 feet of private beaches is just steps from the front door.

This home features a private pool and patio peacefully overlooking a lake. It also offers comfortable sleeping and dining accommodations for 14 guests. The fully equipped kitchen gives you all the comforts of being in your own home. There is flat-screen TVs throughout the home, including bedrooms.

*From October 1st - April 1st, the private pool can be heated for an additional $50/day or $300/week.

Our complimentary seasonal beach service is offered for our Summer months. This includes 2 chairs and 1 umbrella set up daily on the beach from 9am-5pm.

                  About: 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 20 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!

                  Why Private Homes:
                  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!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Knot a Care is located just steps from the beach and across the street from restaurants, pharmacy, grocery store, and much more.
