Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our Caribbean inspired home is casual, comfortable and ideal for those wishing to relax. The rocking chairs on the downstairs front porch is great for enjoying your morning coffee while listening to music from the outdoor speakers, the upstairs lanai is great for afternoon naps in the hammocks; and then indulge yourself with an evening beverage on the side porch, off the downstairs master.

The galley kitchen is open to the dining area, and great for serving and entertaining. The serving bar is great for those casual snacking opportunities and the open dining room seats 6 very comfortably.

The great room is a great place to settle in after a day at the beach. You'll immediately get comfortable as you sink into the down cushioned sofa and perhaps decide to take the chill out of the air with the mosaic surround gas fireplace, as you enjoy a classic movie.

All bedrooms have TV's and VCR's. The downstairs master is furnished with a queen bed, armoire and plenty of closet space. The master bathroom has double vanities, a separate shower and a jetted tub.

The two bedrooms upstairs share a bath but have separate vanities. Each bedroom has access to the upstairs lanai, equipped with two hammocks. One bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, walk-in closet and desk, the other has twin beds.

Caribe is an intimate community of only 119 homes, 2 private pools, 2 private beach accesses, a fishing lake, and a tennis court..only a 3 minute walk to the beach from our house.

Beach chairs and umbrella rental/set ups are available for additional cost.

You must be at least age 25 to book. We do not accept vacationing students or chaperoned groups. Anyone who is under the age of 25 and not married must be accompanied by a legal guardian or parent. Other booking restrictions may apply. Please call for details.

About Bob and Linda

Linda and Bob have always been beach lovers having traveled to the Caribbean a few times we often wondered where we could find a beach that had emerald blue water and white sand closer to home. While living and working in Atlanta GA we stumbled upon Miramar Beach and the Neighborhood of Caribe. We fell in love with the character of the community and of course the white sand and beautiful water. Caribe has always been special to our family, we have created so many great memories. Our entire family including our 5 grand children absolutely love the convenience and peacefulness Caribe offers. We hope you and your family will find the same magic we discovered so many years ago.

Bob and Linda purchased this house in 2000

Why Bob and Linda chose Miramar Beach

Our home is designed to be comfortable, relaxed and situated in the middle of the neighborhood close to the beach and two pools. It actually was the Model home for the community when it first opened. It offers all the amenities you come to expect while on vacation. Many of our guest are return visitors multiple times and actually book a year in advance. We do limit our rental weeks due to our large family and our desire to use our home as much as we can. See our VRBO Reviews for more guest comments.

What makes this house unique

Close to great restaurants, shopping, golfing and water sports the neighborhood of Caribe is unique in that it is a private gated community on the Gulf side of HWY 98. So close to Baytowne Wharf (baytownewharf.com) within the Sandestin resort and 3 great public golf courses. Silver Sands Outlet open air mall is an easy drive, when its time to take a break from the sun and sand. This location truly offers something for everyone while vacationing at the beach.

Great house and great beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second 2 week stay at this lovely home. My family loves coming to Destin and staying at this house. Fun beach decor, well equipped kitchen (we have to cook a lot due to dietary restrictions), relaxing porch and balcony, comfortable beds, and easy access to the beach. Neighborhood is quiet and the community pool is never busy. Highly recommend!

Charming House and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Caribe. The neighborhood is very charming and quiet. We hardly saw anyone while we were there. The beach is totally walk-able even with kids (ours are 6 & 7). The owners provide a garage full of wagons, chairs, umbrellas, rafts, beach toys, towels, 4 adult bikes, etc. Basically everything you'd need for the beach which made is nice that we didn't need to bring all those extras. The house is perfect for entertaining and cooking in. One thing I would suggest is bringing some extras like bath soap, trash bags, laundry detergent, paper towels, etc. Those things aren't provided. I didn't see any coolers that I remember so may want to bring your own to take to the beach. Basic spices/seasonings are provided as well as bath and beach towels. We had a relaxing low key week and would totally stay here again if given the opportunity. The beach was very quiet and hardly any people the whole week. My kids loved going crab hunting at night on the beach--you'll want to bring a bucket and flashlight. We enjoyed the Donut Hole for a breakfast treat, but go early because it gets busy!

A wonderful place to spend a family beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a family with a well-appointed kitchen and table big enough for eight. The neighborhood if quiet and because of the gate the kids can truly play outside and ride the bikes together. We will be going back for sure!

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed here for the week of his birthday and we had a wonderful time. Check in is easy and the house was spotless. You are in a beautiful gated community and an easy walk to your own private beach. We will be back as long as they will have us
