Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are the new proud owners of 'Secret Paradise' located in Emerald Shores, Destin Florida. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in 2010 and purchased our beach home that same year. We have two wonderful children, 22 and 25. Family is very important to us and vacationing together has always been a highlight of every year. We have always loved the beach and wanted to find the perfect place to own a vacation home. The first time we visited Destin was in the summer of 2008 and found it to be a true Secret Paradise. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio we did not know a clear emerald water beach existed in the United States until we found Destin. The bright white sand and clear water is breathtaking! We now own a 'Secret Paradise' and would like to share it with others!
Why the Owner Chose Miramar Beach, FL, USA:
Secret Paradise is located on a cul-de-sac in the family oriented Emerald Shores neighborhood. We like having a gated community and it's convenient location to the beach. Having two pools to enjoy and a private beach pavilion is a 'one of a kind' offered in the Destin area. Also the free tram service to the beach in peak season is a great feature!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A short five minute walk to the beach and also strategically placed between the two pools offered. We not only have three porches on the front of the home we also have a private porch on the back of the home. Our long driveway on the side of the home makes parking your vehicles easy and out of the way. We are so relaxed and comfortable in our beach home and hope the same for you and your family!
