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.

About The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Miramar Beach

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 a better family vacation destination than here. We liked it so much that we built our retirement home here and just love the area.

What makes this house unique

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.

So comfortable and wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 had to switch from HHI due to Hurricane Florence. We were delighted to find this wonderful home on the beautiful Emerald Coast. Al was so gracious and attentive to us. We met a local at the coffee shop who told us about the Blue Angels practice being open to the public on Tuesday’s at the Pensacola Airforce base. It was a real treat! The museum was wonderful too. It was a perfect plan B for us!

Beautiful, well maintained property! We were NOT disappointed at all.

  • 5 of 5

This was our family vacation with 15 people in the home & it was the perfect home for us. This was our first time renting a home in the Destin area & we had a great experience. Al is very easy to work with & answered any questions we had. We would definitely stay there again.

Perfect for our family of 17!

  • 5 of 5

This house was AMAZING! The owner is super good to work with and very accommodating!

My family stayed here over the 4th of July and had a blast. The beach is a less than 5 minute walk and the pool is literally right across the street. There is also a dollar general within walking distance that is helpful for the last minute things you need for cooking. Since there we 17 of us, we cooked at the house most nights. There was more than enough room in the kitchen for cooking and seating. Bedrooms are nice size and bathrooms are nice and updated.

Overall, I would highly recommend this house and working with this owner. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT I COULDNT STAY LONGER!

We had a Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

The home was amazing. Plenty of room for all of our families. We had a family reunion to celebrate my in-laws 40th anniversary, so we brought together four different families with kids. There was plenty of room to house all of us with out stepping on each other. The proximity to the pool and beach was wonderful. The house was fully stocked with dishes, appliances, pots and pans. Anything you could think of you needed to cook with, Al had it in this house. It was great. Al was very accommodating, even with last minute changes to our reservation. Thanks for allowing us to stay here. We will definitely be returning if our kids can handle the drive again!

Great house, great location, great family fun!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Destin area. We had a great time at the house and the beach. The walk to the beach is not bad. Having access to the private entry was perfect!! The beach was clean, not too crowded, and beautiful. The house accommodated 11 of us and exceeded expectations.

Our only recommendation would be to account for travel time on the island. With 98 as the only main road, travel time was terrible. Make sure if you plan on leaving the development, you plan to leave early.

Al was fantastic and responded to anything we needed. If we travel to the area again, we would definitely book with him!!
