No motorized vehicles are allowed on the Terramar Beach and the public access points are about 1/2 mile away in each direction so you can have a very secluded vacation.

Our home features four master queen bedrooms (suitable for 4 adult couples to have privacy) and a bunkroom with 2 full over full bunk beds, queen sleeper sofa, full futon, and twin bed this unique beach house easily accommodates 3 to 4 families, very large families or 4 couples vacationing together! This house has a very open floor plan – the living room has a fireplace downstairs with a sleeper sofa. The Terramar subdivision has a private fishing pier, boat dock, pool, and pavilion that's 1/2 mile from our beach front home!

Located steps from the ocean, it is the perfect getaway beachfront house with spectacular Gulf views. This home features a double deck, is colorfully decorated featuring tile floors and granite counter tops in the kitchen. Two master bedrooms are located on the lower level and two master bedrooms are located on the upper level. All master suites have a queen bed and flat screen TV with DVD player (and Uverse). The bunk room is upstairs and has 2 full over full bunks...the bunks are comfortable for 2 adults or 2 children in each bed.
