'COCONUT COVE' [3 bedrooms + 1 bunk room / 2.5 baths; Sleeps: 12]

2 King Beds, 1 Queen Bed, 2 Bunk Beds, & 2 Queen Futon Sleepers

A professionally decorated, luxury beach home, just steps from the sugar white beaches and gorgeous emerald waters of Destin, Florida. We are located within the Emerald Shores subdivision, a tropical, family-oriented, beach ownership 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 Coconut Cove, 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 to Coconut Cove!

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

The home is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac and is a very short walk to the beach, the large heated community pools, onsite tennis or restaurants. The home has wireless high-speed internet access (wireless 802.11g or b). Why settle for an entire week of that cramped condo feeling when you could be stretching out and enjoying all of the pleasures and domestic comforts of being in your own home while on vacation at the beach! An array of amenities is at your doorstep.

Pool is four houses away. Outdoor grill, outdoor shower, patio chairs and table. Driveway will accommodate a maximum of four vehicles. Note: We do keep two pull wagons at the home for your use when going to the beach or pool.

About Jay Coppic - Coconut Cove

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. You can book any of our properties online at

Jay Coppic - Coconut Cove purchased this house in 2003

Why Jay Coppic - Coconut Cove 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.

What makes this house unique

• Gated Community - All of our homes are located in the highly desirable gated family community, EMERALD SHORES.

• Beach Pavilion - The ONLY community in Destin to have their very own private beach pavilion complete with cabana bar, restrooms, showers and beach service. A "One of a Kind" amenity!

• Beach Access - A few minutes walk from any of our homes is all it takes to get to the Emerald Shores private beach access.

• Wi Fi - All of our homes have FREE wifi. Stay connected while on vacation.

• Amenities - The community has two pools, tennis court, basketball court, shuffle board and a volleyball court for your use while on vacation.

• Extras - Each home is equipped with a propane gas grill. Two beach wagons are provided for you to cart small kids, ice chests, beach toys, beach gear, etc. Most of the homes are equipped with two full-size refrigerators. This is all to make you feel at home while on vacation!

This beautiful home was ideal for my family and I. It was everything we wanted and provided everything we needed. The perfect home away from home! Great location. In proximity of the beach, pools and several restaurants. Shopping and grocery stores nearby as well. Spacious inside and out. Comfortable bedding and patio lounging chairs. Direct and great communication with the owners. Overall excellent rental. We will definitely be renting from The Coppics in the future.

Perfection in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Our family, consisting of six adults and four children (ages 3-14) enjoyed a two-week vacation at Coconut Cove. The walk to the beach wasn't at all bad and we should know since we had all but two days of perfect beach weather. The pools were closeby and most enjoyable. Restroom facilities at both locations were most helpful since we had children. The neighborhood is nice, quiet, child and pet friendly and everyone looks out for each other! A bonus is the frequent stops of the ice cream truck. This is most definitely a property we would consider again in the future. We especially liked the relaxed and livable surroundings. The location is excellent and the owner communicates clearly and promptly. Some great restaurants were within walking distance.

Plenty of room

  • 3 of 5

Nice large home in gated community. Our family of my husband and I plus our 6 young adult children visited during spring break. The home was large enough to accommodate all of us comfortably. There were plenty of utensils for cooking and two refrigerators w/ice makers as well as a gas grill and a handy washer/dryer. All the rooms had a TV. There was plenty of seating inside and outside for all of us. And there were enough spaces where one could just have some alone time. We had some difficulty w/having enough hot water for showers for our large family, so we had to shower in shifts (not even enough to fill the large garden tub, but there was enough for two short showers back to back). We had some unwelcome palmetto bugs in the home, but the owner promptly had the exterminator come while we were there. Please take note that there is no separate cleaning fee. On your day of departure, by 9 am, you are expected to launder all the sheets and towels, wash and put away the dishes and empty the trash. We cleaned and did laundry daily and it still took me 4 hrs on departure day. The home is decorated w/lots of fake plants. All of them were covered in a thick layer of dust. The ceiling fans were also thick w/dust and there was a large dead bug stuck in the bathroom ceiling vent. The throw pillows on the futon had a bad smell of body odor and I don't think the bedspreads and pillow shams are laundered between guests (they had an unpleasant odor and some stains that the rest of the linens didn't have). The home also had a faint smell of cigarette smoke, though they have a non-smoking policy. I would have gladly paid the $125 cleaning fee most other properties charge. A couple of the amenities listed are not available during this early spring season (the community "trolley" to the beach and the beach snack shack) however, the pools were open and heated. Beach access involves a walk through the community, then a cross over a busy road (commuters were very pedestrian friendly). The private beach requires a code for the bathrooms and another for the beach. On our last day, the code pad to the beach was broken, so no access there. The beach is lovely and not over crowded. A peaceful place to walk early or late in the day. There is quite a bit to do in the area. Many grocery and department stores along w/restaurants, souvenir shops, malls and entertainment complexes (go carts, mini golf, zip lines...etc) are a short driving distance away. A few restaurants u can walk to

Owner's Response: We appreciate this guests review and feedback. Certainly we are not the Ritz Carlton, but we do take pride in providing a quality vacation rental experience for our guests and have been doing so for over 15 years. We also have over a 50% repeat rental rate and that’s hard to do if you aren’t taking care of your guests and your property. However, sometimes we do miss the target as we don’t live in the home and have a compressed period of time to get the home cleaned, prepped, restocked, and ready for arriving guests. This is where guests help us help future vacationers. We also send out a guest survey after each rental. I only wish this guest had given us the opportunity to address any issues they were having. Not only could we have addressed ALL these items rapidly, we could also prevent arriving families from experiencing any inconveniences. We do depend our guests who stay a week at a time to promptly report any issues with the home. We live very close to all of our vacation properties in Emerald Shores. With regards to minimal hot water, it is a pretty simple adjustment if we had been aware. Please note, we are just cautious on high water temps because of kids. The water heater was installed in November, 2015. In response to the laundry, we do ask for guests to start the laundry so we can get arriving guests in as early as possible…but we do not expect it. We have a very strict non-smoking policy and perform our own inspections. Our prior guests we know personally, are non-smokers and were there for 2 1/2 months. My wife is allergic to smoke…and neither us smelled any smoke nor was it reported to us? Most of our many rental guests over the years have had a great time and call us if they have any issues, unfortunately we really didn’t get the opportunity to respond to any of these items. As always, we do appreciate guest feedback as that will help us do a better job. We try very hard to make your vacation at the beach a memorable one. Sincerely, Jay & Betty

Cozy Coconut Cove

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in the cul-de-sac of Pearl Cove our family enjoyed the coziness of Coconut Cove.

This lovely, up to date, relaxing home was just perfect for our family of 7. There was plenty of room to accommodate more guests but it suited our family well.

Some of the highlights for us is that this home and community is so welcoming to families. We didn't have to pack things such as a stroller or pack n play. The house provides them. It also provides wagons and beach chairs, toys and floats all the things that easily can take over your travel vehicle.

Inside the home is spacious and relaxing. It has all the appliances you need to live your normal life at home, away from home.

The community is safe, clean and friendly. We enjoyed access to both pools as well as the tram that helped us journey closer to the beach with all our belongings. Our driver even let us drag the wagon of beach apparel from the back of the tram.

If you are looking for something safe, family friendly, cozy, clean and accommodating for your family I would recommend this place for you.

Owner's Response: Glad y'all had such a great beach vacation in the Coconut Cove home! We just want to point out to future vacationing families that we do provide 2 wagons for usage during your stay and we have wagon parking at our private beach pavilion. The toys and beach chairs are not officially provided but we often find them at the homes. Thanks again for the glowing report. Jay & Betty
