There are lots of movies and cd's provided for the family to enjoy, and plenty of comfortable seating for lots of people. HBO and Family cable features if provided for guests. The sectional has a queen sleeper, and when the cushions are removed from the other side of the couch, it makes a full size twin bed. The high speed and wireless routers are located in the living area.
The large kitchen has a bar that seats 3, a round table for 4, and a separate dining area for fine dining is located in the living area. The kitchen is always a gatering spot, and you will be enjoying a huge kitchen complete with all amenities. Truly a must if you enjoy cooking and plan to eat a few meals at home!
There are two gulf front master bedrooms, each with a king bed.
One is downstairs and has a large tv with a separate dvd and vcr player. There is a loveseat in this master that is suitable for a small child to use as a bed. This master has a bathroom that has a small transom window with for watching the ocean as you shower! It has a rain shower and a wall shower, but no tub.
The other bedroom downstairs has a queen bed with a fully rotable 20 inch flat screen with dvd player built in. There is a full size, collapsible crib in this room. It has a private entrance to a bath that has a tub/shower. It is not gulf front, but you have a complete view of the ocean from it's bay window.
The upstairs master has it's own private balcony and a 32 inch flat screen with built in dvd player. It also has only a large tiled shower in the bath, but no tub. There is also a loveseat in this master that would be suitable for a small child to use as a bed, if desired.
The other gulf front bedroom upstairs was designed with children or teens in mind. It has two queen beds plus a twin bed, so 5 people can easily sleep in this room. It also has a fully movable 20 inch tv with built in dvd player. It's tiled and marbled bath also has a shower, but no tub.
There is a gas grill for outdoor cooking. You will enjoy two teak tables, chairs for eating outside with cushions that match the ocean's beautiful green color. And, of course, lots of chaises and rockers for your sunning and viewing pleasure. Plus, there are two beach umbrellas and 4 beach chairs set up for you each morning on your private beach from March-October
There are two balconies for beach-side viewing and sunning, and there is also a large covered porch on the lower level with an outdoor, private shower. There is room for sunning in chaise lounges on this level, or enjoying a sunfree covered porch with a swing and enough tables and chairs to seat over 20 people.
You are within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Kayak, bike, and scooter rentals are directly across the street. There is a convenience store just steps away, a pizza place and beach store also located across the street. And, if you want wonderful gourmet coffees, step across the street to the Bad Ass Cafe...Wonderful place for breakfast, or walk down the beach to the Whale's Tail for breakfast or lunch. The largest upscale outlet mall in the country is less than two miles away as well as two grocery stores, drug stores, etc.
You will fall in love with this two story adorable beach cottage and want to call it your own. Just a few stairs to climb in the home so it is perfect for small kids and elderly. Owners live in Destin and are always only a phone call away to assist you. You will never want to leave this precious cottage!!! We provide all guests with our personal recommendations of restaurants and activites to enjoy.
This is a no smoking, pet free home. Up to 5 large cars or suv's can park; 4 in the paved driveway, and one in front of the house.
On the large covered porch downstairs there is a separate refrigerator/freezer so cool drinks are only steps from the beach.
You may use the pool directly across the street. This pool is for guests of our beach home, (called 'Clearview'). It is a 4 unit condo building with tenants who work all day so pool is empty for you to enjoy. And, you may use the pools from our vrbo listing 30231! Please go to that listing to read the descriptions of the pools and surrounding areas. (The SS pool is not within walking distance of the beach homes, but you can easily spend a day there).
The calendar on vrbo is CURRENT except for weeks that I am awaiting rental agreements, so please check the vrbo calendar before emailing me. Also, we only do Sat to Sat rentals; no daily rentals.

About the owner: I am Bev Monaco, and my husband is John. We retired to Destin 16 years ago and wouldn't dream of living anywhere else. We just love it here! John still works full time but helps me with the rentals on the weekend.. We have a full time handyman who makes sure our properties are kept in tip top shape. We insist on making sure our guests have incredibly wonderful vacations when they stay in any of our properties! We are very much hand's on with our guest's needs.
Why the Owner Chose Miramar Beach, FL, USA:
My husband and I were flying to Hawaii for a vacation 18 years ago, and United Airlines had a big spread in their magazine about the Emerald Coast of Florida.. I grew up in Atlanta, Ga and had never even heard of the Emerald Coast as my parents were not beach lovers. When we returned I flew to Destin with the intention of buying a small condo IF the beach and surroundings were as described in the article.. Within a day, I called my husband to tell him I had found the perfect retirement spot for which we had been searching for several years! We bought 24559 first, and I spent 3 incredibly wonderful winters there until we moved down full time and built our retirement home. The rest is history.. We starting acquiring beautiful properties as investments to rent out. I loveeee decorating and doing all the things I think our guest's need to ensure they have wonderful experiences. We wouldn't live any other place in the world! It is a gorgeous little piece of Heaven!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We host a sibbling reunion each year at our beach home and always experience incredibly beautiful memories. My sister and I were sitting on the balcony of 24559 at sunset about 5 years ago and saw the 'green flash'! It was incredible to witness!!! It was over so quickly, but for years we had read books that referenced the 'green flash' but never knew if it was really true.. Well, it is!! (Of course, the rest of the sibblings and our spouses insist we had had one glass of wine too many!!!) The beach here is unlike any other in the world.. beautiful pure white powdery sand made from ice crystals and crystal clear emerald green waters.. incredible restaurants and wonderfullll people.. it is a wonderfulllll vacation spot!!!
