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 three porches allow you to experience the tranquility of Caribe. Whether you’re enjoying your morning coffee on the main floor porch, taking an afternoon nap in the hammocks on the upstairs porch or indulging yourself with an evening beverage on the side porch off the master on the main you’ll leave a bit more relaxed then when you arrived…we promise!

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.

About Bob and Linda

We have always been beach lovers having traveled to the Caribbean several times and hoped we could find a beach that had the same emerald blue water and white sand yet closer to home. While living and working in Atlanta, we traveled to the Destin area and discovered Miramar Beach and then literally stumbled across the charming Neighborhood of Caribe in 2000. We fell in love with the palm tree lined streets and Caribbean inspired exteriors. Our entire family including our 5 grandchildren especially enjoy the quiet private beach. 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

Miramar Beach is convenient to wonderful restaurants, fantastic shopping, great golf courses and fun water sports. The neighborhood of Caribe is unique in that it’s a gated community with its own quiet private beach. We’re close to Baytowne Wharf ( which is within the Sandestin resort and 3 great public golf courses, an easy drive to Silver Sands Outlet open air mall, and a new cinema at Grand Boulevard. This location truly offers something for everyone.

What makes this house unique

Our home is relaxing and comfortable. We’re nestled in the middle of the community with just a minute’s walk to two pools and the beach via two access points. We have a garage full of chairs, floats, sand buckets, 4 bicycles and an outdoor gas grill. Check out our reviews for insight and feedback.

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!
