AMAZING BEACH GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is by far our favorite of all the homes we have rented over the years! It feels so warm and inviting just like home. It is decorated so lovely with a very personal touch. I love all the cute and uplifting whimsical sayings on the walls. The deck and hammock were a favorite for us all. Our grandchildren enjoyed the hammock as much as us adults. The views of the Emerald Coast are just breathtaking from the deck!! The beach is so close with only a few steps to the boardwalk. The pool was perfect for the kids in the evening while we were grilling or relaxing by the pool. This home is very well maintained and equipped with everything you need for your stay(especially kitchen) and the owner was just great to work with. We were so pleased with this beautiful retreat that we have booked it again for next year!

PERFECT Beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was everything we needed! This review may be a little lengthy, but I'd like to include everything that I loved about it in case there is anyone out there on the border about staying here. First, the best part was the proximity to the beach. We literally had to walk past one driveway to get to the boardwalk leading to the beach. Last year we stayed in condominiums and after walking to the elevator, out of the building, and past the pools, it is nearly the same amount of steps to the beach! Not to mention, the view from the balcony is spectacular!! Next, the listing says it sleeps 10 people, but you could easily fit a few air mattresses if needed. The living area upstairs is very roomy. There are plenty of sheets, pillows, and blankets for extras as well. The kitchen is fully furnished...pots, pans, utensils, toaster, coffee pot, even some platters for entertaining and a martini shaker!! The pool area was a little smaller than the picture portrays, but that is no fault of the owner and it was large enough to cool us off and roomy enough for socializing while grilling. There is sand under the house which was great for the kids when it was raining. There was also everything you could need under the house for your use... beach chairs, sand toys, skim boards, rafts, and an umbrella. There's no way to guarantee those things will remain there, but there were plenty to go around. Whatever you do, do not leave your things on the beach over night or get them out there too early in the morning. We left our tent out on the beach to find it gone in the morning. Apparently it is not safe for the turtles, so the county picks up anything left and hauls it to the dump :( You are directly across from the outlet mall and about 10 miles from Destin. It takes about 25 minutes to make it to Destin, however, with all of the traffic. There is a Winn Dixie, TCBY, liquor store, donut shop, Starbucks, and a great restaurant called Busters all near the entrance of the subdivision. The owner is very nice and quick to answer any questions. Could not have been more satisfied with our decision to stay here at Sandtrap.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you for the amazing review. I never even thought about the sand under the house being a play area for the kids. The pool isn't large but larger than most homes have with a private pool. I love the ocean views from the balcony too. Thanks for mentioning not to leave things on the beach overnight, that would be so disappointing to have it taken away. I wasn't aware they were doing that in that beach area and I will add it to the check in information for all guests. We do keep it at 10 guests so everyone has a bed and enough towels. Thanks for all the great tips and we can't wait to have you back.

Wonderful family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 had a wonderful time at Sandtrap and Miramar Beach. The house is very roomy so everyone had their space. The owner furnished this house with everything you could possibly need for your stay. {especially the kitchen} The walk to the beautiful beach was five minutes. I loved sitting on the porches and people watching. The pool in the back of the house was very nice to get in after a day at the beach. The owner is very easy to work with and we look forward to another stay at Sandtrap.

Another great vacation

This was our third trip to this house and we absolutely love everything about it. It is perfectly located to the beach and shopping. The road has extremely limited traffic which is great for the small kids. We look forward to going back every year. Thank you for another great vacation!!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with two of our sons and their families. The deck had such a great view of the gulf that we spent our mornings having our breakfasts there. The picnic table was great for feeding a toddler and young ones. Lunches were spent there or at the pool. It was such a short walk to the beach that we easily walked back for lunches, additional drinks or to take the youngest back for naps. We have stayed at 2 other homes in the prior years but definately enjoyed this property more for the quiet neighborhood, easy access to the beach, view, and shopping.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. Reading it made me feel like I was out on that great porch enjoying the ocean view & breeze myself. So glad it was your favorite vacation spot.
