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.

Great owner, excellent location to pool & sound, bad road noise

  • 4 of 5

You couldn't ask for nicer owners - responsive & informative.

The pool & the sound are awesome - being able to walk out & be there can't be beat. We shared with people who had rented the house next door which worked well for our group.

The only negative is the location, directly off the four lane highway- even with sound machines, it disturbed every member of our party.

Still a completely beautiful vacation & thankful to the owners for opening their home to us.

Amazing waterfront property

  • 5 of 5

This house was large enough to accommodate our party with room to spare. We had 12 adults and 1 child and it worked out well. The property would be better suited for more kids and fewer adults but it was perfect for what we needed. Being right on the water was amazing and we saw dolphins, sharks, and sting rays in the bay. Owner was very helpful and always responded quickly when we had questions. Highly recommend!

Perfect for a group FAMILY trip with KIDS, especially

  • 5 of 5

So, this place is just a gem! The house is updated, beautiful, and best of all, had very comfortable mattresses and soft bedding. The owners have not skimped on anything -which is a rare find with vacation property. We had five kids in our party, and they just loved the bunk room and upper level atop the spiral staircase. The hammock had been damaged by the previous renters and was out of use, but the owners replaced it right away so that we could enjoy all the amenities listed. Which also includes the use of a great multi-seater kayak. This was our first time being on the Sound, and it was perfectly calm and gave a great beach feel without the risk of jellyfish and waves crashing on the little ones. We loved walking out on the long dock and relaxing! We will definitely return to this place again!

Oh, and get sushi from the nearby "Slippery Mermaid." It was fantastic!

Just amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We weren't sure what to expect with the location being on the bay. It turned out to be just amazing! The water is beautiful and it has its own little beach. As for the house it's self, it was as seen in pictures. Lots of huge bedrooms and balconies on every floor! Very large washer and dryer made it easy for our large group to keep things clean. Could not ask for better place.

What a special place to get away to!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing...spacious, beautiful, clean and inviting..very well maintained and very comfortable for our large group that recently stayed there. In fact, there are plans in the works for another visit in the future! Some of our group took advantage of the hot warmer weather the pool would have been awesome as well. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay!
