Property description

Casa Grande

Enjoy the good life at Casa Grande, only a few steps to the beach and just across the street from the main pool. There's a great pool view from every porch. This fabulous 5 bedroom, 3-1/2 bath home sleeps 15 and is located in the gated community of Emerald Shores.

Emerald Shores is a family-oriented community with two pools, (one heated in winter), tennis court, basketball, and PRIVATE COMMUNITY BEACH PAVILION WITH RESTROOM FACILITIES! Our trolley runs to the beach daily in the summer months, but you can just walk the 500 feet to the beach easily. This is a great community for your vacation and even better for our snowbird friends long term in the winter- a great escape from the cold weather.

This comfortable home is located on the south end of Emerald Shores where you can walk to several fine restaurants. Enjoy Free WI-FI, local phone calls, cable flat-screen TV's in every room and a surround sound stereo system that has speakers throughout the entire home. We have all tile on the first floor and hardwood on the second floor. No allergies from carpet in this home.

There are 4 covered porches at this home where you can sit, relax and enjoy the Destin life. Grill out on the gas grill or cook inside in the fully equipped kitchen.

Emerald Shores is located centrally in Destin so you don't have to drive far to go anywhere. Just a couple of miles east to Sandestin where you can dine, play, or chill at the Village of Baytown Wharf. Enjoy shopping, eating and entertainment at nearby Destin Commons or play at the fun water park Big Kahunas. You may choose to spend a day at the Harbor, watching the fishing fleet come in with the catch of the day, take in one of the fine restaurants, or play at night at one of the many night clubs. Numerous golf courses are within a few miles.

Our Floor Plan:
First Floor:
Living Room, Dining, Kitchen, Office area, Utility room, Powder room and King Master Suite with a super large walk in closet. Private bathroom boasts a Big corner garden tub, Double vanity and walk in shower.

Second Floor:
Loft Area with Day Bed and Trundle, Walk out covered porch, queen guest room with adjacent bathroom, another queen bedroom with convertible double chair which makes a single hide-a-bed. Bunk room with trundle (sleeps 3), and finally a huge King master Suite with another convertible double chair and a full bath. There is a walk out porch from this bedroom as well.

There's not much more to ask for at Casa Grande..... just YOU! Come enjoy your Destin vacation here and make fabulous memories for a lifetime.

Easy on online booking with no Security Deposit.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We hope you enjoy your visit at Casa Grande! We spent Christmas 2013 here and have cherished the memories of our family enjoying each other in our house by the sea. We live just blocks away from the house and are available for any questions or information needed. We Love happy customers and we will do all we can to be sure you visit us again and again!

Why Miramar Beach, FL, USA:
We were a military family and later worked in the civilian sector. During our military career we traveled many places and we do not think there is not a better family vacation destination than here. We liked it so much that we built our retirement home here and just love the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are parking spaces for three cars plus overflow parking across the street by the pool. If you bring a trailer it not allowed to be parked in the Emerald Shores complex therefore arrangements to park the trailer elsewhere will need to be made.
