This is a 'Funky Beach Shack' themed upscale luxury home and it's just a short walk from the sugar white beaches and emerald waters of Destin, Florida. The Gulf comes to you in this home, with bright colors, local artwork, and funky fish galore.

We are located within the Emerald Shores subdivision, a family oriented tropical beach community of upscale homes, situated 100 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. You will enjoy the two large heated community pools, the close proximity to the beach, access to the beach pavilion, onsite tennis, and the security of gated entrances.

Soft sandy shores and beautiful emerald water are just steps away. EMERALD SHORES is the only residential community in Destin that has a private beach pavilion with restrooms, outdoor showers, beach service and it's very own Cabana Cafe' & Bar! This eliminates having to go back to the home for potty breaks, or to rinse off the kids or to just get a bite to eat with a cold beverage. It's all available at the Emerald Shores beach pavilion!

We are close to restaurants, water sports, the Silver Sands Outlet Mall (largest in the south) and the newly opened Destin Commons. Destin Commons is a unique, open-air village, featuring upscale shopping, casual and fine dining, and a 14-screen, stadium-seating movie theater located 1.5 miles west. From Bimini Breeze, you can safely bike with the kids through the neighborhood and along the paved bike paths for awesome beach views. Our favorite activity. Ask about beach bike delivery and pick-up for Bimini Breeze!

From Bimini Breeze, you can walk to either Captain Dave's On The Gulf, Kenny D's Grill & Beach Bar, or Pompano Joe's Seafood and sample some of the local seafood flavors or just to relax and sip on a cold one.

About Jay Coppic - Bimini Breeze

Our very first road trip to Destin was in 1987. We immediately fell in love with the sugar white beaches and pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It was our little secret love nest that consisted mostly of walking on the beach and regular trips to the fish market. Well, Destin is no longer our little secret and we are very passionate about sharing all that it has to offer. Betty is a local realtor and our rental management company, GULF911, is located less than a mile from this property.

Jay Coppic - Bimini Breeze purchased this house in 2001

Why Jay Coppic - Bimini Breeze chose Miramar Beach

We have traveled extensively and "rented" property for our own family vacations. So we fully understand and appreciate the importance of finding a great location, having easy access to amenities, and a quality home that is clean and well maintained. In 2001 we took the plunge and purchased our first property in Destin and started living "The Dream". Eventually we moved to Destin full-time. Whether you are looking to rent a high-quality vacation home or looking to purchase something for your family, we have the experience to help at GULF911. Please call or email us, we would love to hear from you.

Very Desirable!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is without question well worth a look! ( unless a beach view is paramount ). Clean, very functional. The owner was always available, if a minor issue / query arose. Only 4 of us in our party, so needless to say, it felt cavernous, for a 7 day stay. Kitchen had many thoughtful extras, that other rentals may not have. Should we ever need a larger property for occupancy, Bimini Breeze would DEFINITELY be a consideration!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth year to rent this home. Great to see our daughter head straight up to her "flamingo" room. Always nice to see the new items in the home. This year they added a new couch and appliances. Look forward to staying there again next year. Perfect location to beach, pool, dining, and shopping. Thanks again for another awesome week and see ya next year.

First class location and house!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic. If you have never been to Destin before, the house is in a great location. It is close to many great restaurants and attractions. The house was clean and was even ready for us a little early. We had 6 adults and a 2 year old...and we had plenty of space. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the propane grill was a nice added bonus. The house came with two wagons, and tons of additional beach toys. Speaking of the beach, it was a really easy and short walk from the house (2-3 minutes). Having access to the pavilion was great. While the snack shop wasn't open when we were there, it was nice to have the bathrooms so close.

We would not hesitate to stay in the house again. We stayed a few extra days in a resort community down the didn't even compare to Bimini Breeze.

Owner's Response: Fantastic! At one point in time, this home was actually our personal residence so it's great to hear all the positive feedback. We live close to all the properties and do our best to make sure your vacation lodging experience is a great one. We look forward to your return to Destin! Thanks for your feedback. Jay & Betty

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This home was very clean upon arrival and we received notification that it was ready early for us! The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice sized. The kitchen and family room was spacious and nicely equipped. The home was close to the beach, pool and restaurants. I would definitely rent this same house again. The owner was great to work with.

Closer to the Sand

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Shores is a great Destin spot for families. It has gated access to 98 and to old 98 and it’s close to the best restaurants and shops. We’ve stayed in Bimini Breeze three times and it’s our favorite place for larger groups, especially when kids are along. It’s close to the beach gate so it’s a short walk to the beach. We like that it has three master bedrooms and all three baths are updated. It has flat screens in every room, digital cable, and fast internet access. We especially liked the bike path, the beach club with restrooms and showers, and the tennis court. The owners are local and are very responsive.
