Overview

About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Wow, what a great vacation home in the Destin area! Located in the tranquil, gated neighborhood of Emerald Shores, this three story, four bedroom, three bath home sits in a cul-de-sac at the community pool and only a five minute walk to the beach! There is also a free tram service to the beach during the summer months! Recent updates include a new 51' Plasma TV with some high def channels, DVD players, and a stainless steel Kitchen with granite counters!

Sit out on the wrap-around balconies or the first floor covered porch and enjoy the weather and the views of the neighborhood and pool! There is a distant water view from the third floor balcony!

This Caribbean cottage, named 'Caribe,' is decorated with a Caribbean theme and bright colors! It sleeps 12! The first floor has a spacious and open floor plan with tiled floors. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room. The second floor is carpeted in the bedrooms and tiled in the bathrooms and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a bonus room leading to the second floor balcony. There is a king bed and 2 queens, plus another sleeper sofa in the bonus room. The third floor is a loft area with twin beds with access to yet another balcony! High Speed internet access on 1st floor.

Emerald Shores has its own Beach Cabana with restrooms, picnic tables, and lounge chairs. There are also two heated pools, tennis court, shuffle board, and a basket ball court! Conveniently located to the Destin Commons Mall, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall, Golf, Restaurants, and more!

The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, 'Paradise!' Destin is abundant with restaurants, bars, shopping areas, golf, and water sports.

Vacationing here is an annual, sometimes two to three times a year event for many families! You should come too! When you come once, you'll want to come again and again! Some people make this area home after just one visit! Come see why!

About Bill or Terry

From Montgomery, AL but love Destin!

Bill or Terry purchased this house in 2001

Why Bill or Terry chose Miramar Beach

Emerald Shores is a gated community with 2 pools, a tennis court, basketball goal, and a private beach cabana! No other neighborhood along this stretch of beach has a private beach cabana with restrooms, lounge chairs, and picnic tables! Great location too! Walk to the beach and restaurants along the beach! Close to the Destin Commons Mall and the Silver Sands Designer Outlet Mall!

What makes this house unique

Big home located right behind the bigger of the 2 pools in Emerald Shores! Nice covered 1st floor porch as well as covered wrap around 2nd and 3rd floor balconies. There is even a glimpse of the Gulf from the 3rd floor balcony!

�Best Vacation ever!!�

We stayed during the summer 2014 and will try to get same house this summer!! There was nothing we didn't like about the house! Very spacious and very clean!! Very short walk to the beach, but they still have a shuttle that will take you back and forth! Nice pool next to the house for the evenings! We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We contacted the rental agency one time and quickly they came and assisted us. Thank you for the welcoming stay!

We had a great time at the Caribe house. We loved the fact that it was so close to the pool and just a short walk to the beach. We would definitely stay there again.

Reviewer Comments:

I had a party of ten people and we all enjoyed our time. There were some bugs and the toilet downstairs had some problems, but overall a great place. I would go again and also recommend it to anyone. They have all the kitchen things you need like tongs, plates and cups. They also a TV in many of the rooms. It was close by the beach and it was a private beach for the subdivision.

Had a great time during this visit. We have stayed at other places in the area and really enjoyed our stay this time. Short walk to the beach and the rental fit 11 of us with space to spare. I will definitely consider again.
