Why Derral chose Tang-O-Mar

I stumbled upon a area in Destin that nearly everyone knew the surrounding area but not Tang O Mar. Perfect, in the middle of the action of Destin but hidden in my own super private subdivision and uncrowded beaches. Even during the season. You just can't find this in the middle of Destin.You will not understand until you experience and stay here. Throw back Destin.

What makes this house unique

No crowdes to fight for a beach site, no hunting a parking space, no waiting on a grille to open up so you can grille your meal.You can walk from the porch to your beach chair faster than the majority of the condos. You can park and even wash you car off right here below the porch. You can grille your fish or whatever right at the bottom of the steps and look at the ocean the whole time. The benefits are, you can enjoy yourself to the slow pace of Destin or just drive 1000 yards or so to the fast pace of Destin. You make the choice.

Just a short walk to the beach!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 25, 2015

Mrs. Bear and I needed a little beach time with extended family. This amazing beach house just outside of Destin provided just that. Our own little Margaretville in paradise! The 3 bedroom beach house was very nicely furnished in a fitting beach feel with plenty of little touches along the Margaritaville theme that gave the whole house a relaxing ambiance. There was plenty of room for all 5 adults and the 2 cubs we brought with us in the nicely furnished rooms. The home had ample parking for our 3 vehicles. We absolutely loved the short walk to the beach so we could come and go as we pleased. The private beach made the experience very relaxing, unlike the more touristy and crowded nearby beaches in the area. Aside from the beach, our little bear’s favorite spot was the small pool and patio area below the house where he practiced his cannonballs. Daddy Bear loved being able to cook up delicious steaks on the new grill near the pool. In the evenings we enjoyed lounging in the numerous chairs in the huge porch area, listening to waves crashing in the background. It was great to let the cubs roam free in the fenced in porch area complete with kid proof locks on the gates so we didn’t need to stress about them wandering off. We also took full advantage of the large dining table in the open floor plan living area with plenty of seating. On nights when we didn’t feel like cooking or doing dishes we were only a short drive to a number of great local restaurants. When we needed a change from the beach life we could easily get to the nearby outdoor shopping area to pick up a gift, grab a coffee, or enjoy a delicious gelato. The home is only a short drive from Destin’s HarborWalk village filled with entertainment, shops, and restaurants right on the water. All in all if you are looking for a nice place to get away from the fast paced life and to reconnect with family and friends then this is the house for you!

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Truly the best beach house in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

This house is all that it claims to be. The heated pool felt like a hot tub! The deck is awesome as well as the views from the living room, master bedroom, and guest room! The beach is a short walk from the house and you can easily go back and forth. This will be our go to house in Destin from now on! We are already planning to book for next year!

Holiday Hiatus

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 3 moms and their sons (16, 15 and 13), a grammy and an aunt. The Christmas school break was a great time of year to get out of the Midwest and head to the beach. The house was exactly as we had hoped it would be. Clean, fun, comfortable and the location couldn't be beat. It was wonderful having a private pool for the boys when they got tired of boogie-boarding in the ocean, and the Adirondack chairs got a workout with some of us catching up on our reading. There was slight glitch with the Wi-Fi which Derral and Debbie immediately took care of. Derral was wonderful to work with - answered all our questions, gave us great suggestions for hang-out spots - and extremely quick with getting back to us either via text or email. On the way back home, we were already looking at the calendar trying to figure out when we could go back to My Margaritaville. Can't wait to go again!
