About the property

3 bedroom/2 bath home w/pillow top beds, heated massage chair & indoor Jacuzzi

Wonderful and tranquil spot with over 4 acres on a major road, close enough to high energy cities and flawless beaches in 3 directions. The land is mosquito exterminated. Imagine a lovely brick home decorated by Ralph Lauren. The furnishings are upscale, heavy wood, leather, designer bedding and Hunter ceiling fans. Pillow top beds, 800 thread count linens, Ralph Lauren pillows and 12 fluffy towels provided. An indoor jacuzzi, zero gravity massage chair, air hockey, laser tag, poker set & many more games. Big screen TVs in the rooms & 1 set up with gaming chairs plus 100's of DVDs. Each room has a heavy, weighted throw which helps with a restful sleep. 2 queen size beds, 1 kind size, 2 twin beds in the living room and an extra mattress to comfortably sleep 10 people. State of the art kitchen with all stainless steel appliances and enough upgraded cookware to whip up a 7 course meal; stainless steel dishwasher is noiseless. Create an event with a fondue maker, wok, chocolate warmer, crock pot & plates, dishes & flat ware for 10. Refrigerator stocked with brown eggs, bacon, potatoes, yogurt, cereal and flavored jellies; NON GMO & Organic. Gourmet teas & coffees & Keurig maker as well. I also provide freshly baked pastries, fruit, snacks and drinks. The large Tiki torch lined yard has a fire pit, hammock, screened gazebo with table and chairs and a grill. This backyard is a lovely entertainment area where smoking is allowed. (NO smoking in or near the home.) Flood lights and alarm system provide peace of mind. There's a host of games from a complete poker set, Walking Dead Trivia, Truth or Dare game and Pictionary chalk board. The acre near the home is landscaped but there is over 3 acres of uncultivated land to explore. (Heavy boots and clothing recommended) All of my guest surveys have been excellent.

About Gloria Carter

I am a Realtor, volunteer at the hospital & in the community and mother of two amazing kids. I moved to the Emerald Coast after a vacation. I fell in love with the white sandy beaches and horse filled pastures. I am an avid traveler, student of cultures and language and love to read. I have been to the Orient, Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico and all over the US. My son attended Julliard & dances with national ballet companies so I have traveled to see him perform in NYC & other major cities often. My daughter is working on her 3rd degree at a major university, was dance team captain and has performed in Europe twice. You will see traces of dance through my home. When I started with VRBO I encompassed all the things I wanted in travel at my home. I receive excellent reviews because of this. It was always a bonus when I stayed at places where amenities were included. I like paying more for upscale accommodations but like having the extras included. I wanted to create an adventure with many different options for fun and to explore without having to pull out a credit card every few hours. After a day, out and about, I wanted travelers to continue the experience with a wonderful evening in the home. Some could be playing a wide variety of games while others are in the jacuzzi or the massage chair or curled up in a weighted throw; all while watching a movie on the big screen TV. Enjoy the well lit yard and gazebo. Then when it's meal time it's served on real plates, glasses and silverware. Time away from our hectic schedules should be amazing and never cost prohibitive. Welcome to the Wilderness Upscale Retreat!

Why Gloria Carter chose Baker

This property is amazing. Centrally located to several major highways, close to nature and a short drive to some of the most amazing beaches. Destin's beaches will take your breath away and the starry nights at the Wilderness Upscale Retreat by the blazing fire pit or candle lit dinner in the gazebo is what memories are made of.

What makes this house unique

Benefits include being able to be outdoor without having mosquitoes to worry about because the land is fumigated. Plus spending time doing so many different activities all in the same place is a bonus. A fully stocked kitchen makes preparing a meal fun and often inventive. A good night's sleep sets the tone for everything. If you didn't sleep well it can ruin the trip. Pillow top mattresses, designer sheets, plush weighted throws and a quiet home make for a great night.
