About the property

6 bedroom, 5 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 18

Please note: We are unable to accommodate weddings, receptions, or events.

If you are interested in booking our home for your vacation, please tell us a little about yourself, your rental party, and the reason for your visit.

This gorgeous home - the Palm Breeze Beach House - on the Santa Rosa Sound boasts amazing views from numerous porches, balconies, bedrooms, and living area. Watch blue herons trek across the beach looking for dinner and the occasional dolphin that frolics in the calm waters. You can enjoy this poolside next to the infinity-edge pool or relax in the above-ground hot tub under the night sky after a day at the beach. Lush tropical landscaping abounds on the property to make you feel like you're truly in an oasis! While the hot tub is private to this home, the pool/beach/dock are shared with the Seahorse Retreat - a similar home we manage that can also be rented together or separately (see listing 177462 on VRBO and 164976 on Homeaway). Each home is on 1/2 acre and enclosed by a fence for privacy.

Inside is a spacious and beautiful retreat which has been designed for your comfort. Most bedrooms have views and access to balconies:

Ground floor has queen bedroom and full bath

First floor master bedroom with full bath and king

Second floor master bedroom with full bath with king

Second floor kids room with two twin over double bunks that sleep six

Second floor queen bedroom with shared full bath

Third floor room via spiral stair case has bunk; hanging twin bed and twin trundle

Full Bath at foot of spiral staircase

The kitchen has plenty of space to create meals for a large family, or grill out! We also have our own private white sand beach and dock - bring your wave runners! Or, enjoy the tandem kayak on site - it's a great way to explore the Sound.

Of course you can head down the road to the family attractions in Destin or let the sugar-white sand sift through your toes just five miles west on uncrowded Navarre Beach, Florida's 'best kept secret.' You may even decide to enjoy your own beach where the water is clear and shallow, and parents can let young children play without concern about rough water or undertow.

This home and the one next to it, which sleeps 16, may be available for rental together.

Please check calendar; we update it daily.

About Timothy or Elizabeth Spaid

We have been in the vacation rental property business since 2003 when we purchased our first town home on Folly Beach, SC. We love to share our homes with guests, and our guests make a lot of memories here because they often bring three generations of family members! You can view more photos of our homes on Coast Awhile Vacations.

Timothy or Elizabeth Spaid purchased this house in 2008

Why Timothy or Elizabeth Spaid chose Mary Esther

In 2006 we saw this hurricane-ravaged piece of land on the Santa Rosa Sound and took a gamble. We bought it and with our partner, started building two identical homes, The Seahorse Retreat and the Palm Breeze Beach House.

What makes this house unique

Our location - 5 miles from Navarre Beach and 15 miles from Destin - makes it easy to access both towns, as well as Fort Walton Beach and Pensacola. The water on our beach on the Sound is perfect for swimming because it's shallow and calm, and it's probably one of the best places to try paddle boarding (if guests don't have boards, they can be delivered to the homes). The lovely landscaping, beautiful infinity-edge pool and spas, numerous balconies, and upscale decor make it a great place to relax and enjoy special time with family or friends.

Perfect house for a family getaway. We were very comfortable there with 13 people. It was clean and very well equipped. Enjoyed the Gulfarium, the zoo, and the naval air museum.

Brr...January weather was nippy but the accommodations were warm and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our family week at Sea Breeze; it was unusually cold in Florida this year but we had one day in the 60's and the memories of my 4 grandsons (4 1/2 and under) playing on our private beach with the sand toys, wading in the calm/shallow water, walking along the long pier and floating together in the warm jacuzzi are etched in my mind. Beautiful home/property yet comfortable and large enough to let the kids play while the adults have their space nearby. Would love to return in the summer months to enjoy the beautiful infinity pool, outdoor lounging areas and further explore the waters!

Keller, TX


  • 5 of 5

We had 12 people for a long weekend. Since it was January we didn't do any water activities but the location and views were great. The house was very nice and extremely comfortable for all of us - plenty of bathroom and bedroom space. It had everything we needed to cook, including a crockpot, which is always great for a group. This would be a wonderful house for a large family to gather in the summertime.

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property and at a very beautiful location. The property is described very accurately. Some noise from the highway, but certainly not enough to matter. Sitting on the back deck every morning and drinking coffee was the best way to start the day! We would definitely recommend it. We had 12 adults and 3 children in to attend a wedding in Navarre Beach. There are plenty of places to eat and shop nearby. The only problem was the visit was too short!

Loved our stay at Palm Breeze

  • 5 of 5

The Palm Breeze house is beautiful. It had everything we need for the week stay. The Kids loved playing in the sound. They also loved having the pool and hot tub. The dolphins swam along side my son-in-law and grandson as they took a kayak trip in the sound. We were close to Navarre Beach and spent a couple mornings watching the sunrise and playing at the beach. We also went to watch the Blue Angels which everyone loved.

We were close to Destin and made a couple trips to enjoy eating out and a dolphin cruise. The kids are already talking about the next trip.
