Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 8

Caribbean Paradise is the ultimate in luxury beach front vacation homes. This Caribbean-inspired, custom home is located directly one lot from the gulf of Mexico. There is no home built on the gulf front lot in front making Caribbean Paradise virtually a beach front home. The powder white sands literally stretch to the front of the home! You have incredible unobstructed views of the gulf from every room and porch.

This beautiful home is located in the Caribbean inspired neighborhood of Caribe. Caribe is one of the most interesting and whimsical neighborhoods on the coast. Caribe is a gated, gulf front community with two community pools, a tennis court, and lakeside gazebo. Why pay gulf front prices when you can have this beach front palace for much less?

Caribbean Paradise is a beautifully decorated home. You have a private walk way to the beach right outside your door! If you enjoy amazing architecture and great outdoor living space then you will thoroughly enjoy this vacation home.

This amazing rental home is very spacious adorned with fine furniture. This home has been decorated for the homeowner and nothing has been left out. Every inch of this place is gorgeous with fine, custom finishes throughout and beautiful hand selected furnishings. Caribe is located about 1/2 mile west of the Sandestin Resort and 1 mile east of Destin. This is by far one of the finest rental homes in the Destin area in this price range.

The Caribe neighborhood, located in Miramar Beach between Destin and Sandestin, is a luxurious, gated Gulf Front community that features two community pools, a tennis court, lakeside gazebo and private beach access. Enjoy Gulf views from the expansive porch of an architect-designed home!

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the layout of the house. There were a few kitchen outlets that didn't work, and they could use some additional dishes and kitchen gadgets, but we were very pleased with the property. The location was fantastic. The shower outside (to get the sand off) was so clogged that you were standing in sand that wouldn't wash away. That would be a good thing to get fixed! Lots of space and the rooms were nice and big. The tiny broom with a bent dustpan was frustrating, so that would be another item to get taken care of. The living room furniture was pretty worn, and for my family, the feather pillows caused some allergy flare ups, especially since they shed like crazy!! We would definitely rent again. The neighborhood was beautiful and conveniently located and close to everything we wanted to do.

Feedback

  • 5 of 5

We were very, very pleased with our accommodations. The gated community was quiet, convenient, and the persons we met there were extremely cordial and friendly. The house exceeded our expectations and was very comfortable. Location was wonderful.

As with any property, there are some details which need to be addressed. Please do not consider the following as being complaints. They are simply little details which need correcting. First, the kitchen sink was very stained. We used baking soda and did a little scrubbing. It needs more attention.

The upper section of electric outlet on the right side of the bed in the bedroom on the main level did not work. Same problem with the outlet under the kitchen counter near the dining table did not work. The faucet in the bathroom on the main level had a constant drip.

The weather stripping under the door from the living area to the deck where grills are located is only partially attached.

Once again, do not construe these as complaints. They are maintenance issues needing attention.

I made these same comments in a survey we received from Five Star.

Wonderful Beach house!

  • 4 of 5

Overall this home was great! The beach views were awesome! The beds were so comfortable the proximity to the beach was great, and the neighborhood was very clean and quiet. We were a family of 6 and we really enjoyed the house, the beach, the town and even though we had rain for 3 out of 7 days, we still had a good time!

We had several issues that we hope that can be fixed up for the future.

1. The ice maker in the fridge was temperamental and only worked when it wanted to.

2. The living room furniture and all the pillows are filled with feathers, so over time you would sit or move or getup, there would be feathers allover the place! If you have allergies, this is not the place for you. It looked like we had molting birds in the house.

3. There are so many light switches and yes some are labeled which is great, but a lot are not and it gets very confusing trying to figure out the fans, the spots , the outside lights ,etc.

4. Also when the spots are on in the living area and the master, they flicker ALOT, so there must be some sort of short there.

Over all even with the slight issues, we really enjoyed this home. It is in need of updating especially in the kitchen. But we would stay there again!

We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at the beach and can't wait to have you again. In regards to the ice maker, living room feathers, light switches, and spotlights, we have passed these things onto our Owner Services and Maintenance departments to look at. We appreciate you letting us know! We hope to you again for a sunny vacay! Be sure to give us a call the next time you come into town to take advantage of your repeat guest discount. Sincerely, Five Star Properties

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

The house is large and in a really cute community. On the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. The only complaint would be the house could have been a little cleaner.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week-long stay over Spring Break. The house was comfortable and well-appointed with everything we needed to relax. The gated neighborhood made us feel safe, and the private beach was a definite plus. Would love to stay here again!

Annual Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Great house in a perfect location. Would rent this property again without reservation. Enjoyed Santa Rosa Golf Club and Baytowne Gof Club.

Minor issues:

1. House must not have been inspected prior to arrival. Dead roach in middle of kitchen floor.

2. Carpets and porch needed cleaning

3. Instructions regarding TV and other electronics were incorrect. Electronics equipment needs be evaluated and broken or excess equipment removed.

4. Two TVs in bedrooms did not work and no one responded to call for technical assistance.

5. Electric outlets above counter on either side of kitchen sink did not work.

6. Garbage compactor did not function.
