Amalfi Coast Resort condo description

Location: Amalfi Coast Resort, Scenic Gulf Drive, Miramar Beach, Florida (one mile west of Silver Sands Outlet Mall on Scenic Gulf Drive). View map.

Accommodations: Condo, 1 Bedroom, sleeper sofa, plus bunk area, sleeps 6, 2 full baths

Want to stay in a place that arks around a tropical lagoon on one of the highest elevations on the Emerald Coast? If so, then you have got to try our condo at the Amalfi Coast or at least our Florida version of the Italian original. Barefoot by the Sea sits on eight and one half acres of beautifully landscaped grounds on Scenic Gulf Drive. The elevation here was created by an old dune which was used by mariners to mark this part of the beach from the adjacent flats. The gated beach access across the street from the Amalfi Coast takes full advantage of this height with an old fashioned Observation Gazebo which sits above the staircase that leads down to the beach. The condo complex wraps around twin swimming pools which are elevated above a natural lagoon with a festive fountain. A graceful, arching pedestrian bridge from the pool area crosses over the lagoon and past the palm trees to take you to the beach. The simultaneous views of the twin pools, lush landscaping, lagoon and grassy lawns with the gulf in the distance are quite stunning. Barefoot by the Sea is one bedroom with two baths, fully equipped kitchen, open dining and living areas, a hallway cove that includes bunk beds, washer and dryer as well as the covered balcony.

$300 reservation deposit required to hold the unit at time of reservation by check or credit card. Balance of rent due 30 days prior to arrival. Damage deposit secured by credit card on file. Cancellations of less than 30 days subject to loss of deposit.

Rental not available to vacationing students or singles under age of 25. No smoking and no pets. For reservations, call after 6 p.m., CST, on weekdays or 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends


Our condo shares one thing in common which is a fantastic location on Miramar Beach. Located half way between Destin and Scenic 30A in South Walton you have the best of both worlds so to speak, due to its conveniently centralized location. Scenic Gulf Drive has beachfront dining just minutes away at The Whale's Tail, Pompano Joe's, Captain Dave's and The Crab Trap. The largest Designer Outlet Silver Sands, is also located in Miramar Beach. A multitude of restaurants, shops, galleries and live entertainment abound nearby at Sandestin, Baytowne Wharf and on Grand Boulevard.

Brand new state of the art Sacret Heart Hospital within two miles with 24 hour emergency and helicopter.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We are a military family and I retired in the area after serving 22 years in the United States Air Force.

                  Why the Owner Chose Amalfi Coast Resort:
                  I knew the Emerald Coast and this little slice of paradise was my 'home' after my tour to Eglin AFB almost 25 years ago. I met my husband here and we love the powder sugar beaches of the area, swimming, boating and fishing. Destin is 'the Luckiest Little Fishing Village' so we knew immediately that we would put down permanent roots here. We want to share our home and treasured beaches with our family from Illinois, friends and visiting guest. We hope you can visit and fall in love with our beautiful paradise just like we did so many years ago!
