Terra Cotta Terrace cottage description

*** Complimentary beach set up (2 chairs and 1 umbrella) March 14-October 31, 2015 ***

Tropical Dreams is a three-bedroom, two-bath vacation home set in an amazingly tranquil location with a wraparound porch and a private pool. Just a casual five-minute stroll from the home you will find yourself on a peaceful sandy-white beach with aquamarine waters.

Tropical Dreams sleeps six to eight with a king-size bed in the master bedroom, queen-size beds in the two guest bedrooms, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The home is attractively and comfortably decorated in cottage style furniture and is completely furnished with all the linens, kitchen utensils, appliances, and washer/dryer. Each bedroom as well as the living area has its own TV/DVD/VCR player and ceiling fan. An outdoor gas barbeque is available poolside for your grilling pleasure.

Whether you crave relaxation or plenty of activity, “Tropical Dreams” is your dream come true. Spend the afternoon reading on your front porch, sunning poolside, or casually walking to the beach and enjoying the tropical breezes. Just steps from your door is the community clubhouse/pool, tennis courts, and sand volleyball pit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Our journey began in late 2002 when we purchased our first vacation home called Tropical Breeze. We entered this adventure with open minds thinking we would purchase a home, hang on to it for five years, sell and then upgrade to a larger home we would eventually move into. We vacationed in Destin when our busy schedules permitted us to and we would take our shoes off from the time we arrived, and they stayed off until we left. Our days were spent at the beach burying our sons in the sand and enjoying the summer breezes. We felt this was a joy everyone should experience. The only way this could happen was to share our vacation home with others. The response from our guests was so overwhelming that we found ourselves turning families away. With additional planning and a lot of prayer, we purchased Tropical Paradise and Tropical Dreams in 2004. Six years and three vacation homes later (2008), we finally moved to Destin.

Why the Owner Chose Terra Cotta Terrace:
Destin is such a family friendly vacation spot and the beaches are absolutely beautiful!
