About the Property

Lux Home Private Pool 1/2 Block to Beach Close to top shopping and restaurants

Welcome to Summer Dreams!

Summers Dreams, your luxurious vacation home, is located in a very well-kept, private gated community called Emerald Waters Village in Miramar Beach, FL.

This beautiful family-oriented home is a three-story, 5000 square foot home - professionally designed to allow for 4 – 5 families to make wonderful vacation memories together – just as our family does. Summer Dreams has perfectly lovely sleeping accommodations for up to 22 people. 24 guests maximum in our home.

Feel free to call or text me (Gregg) at (314) 574-7672 day or night with any questions you may have. I will generally respond within 1 - 4 hours with answers. I want to make your vacation and rental experience as enjoyable as possible.

When you enter the home you will be amazed at the spaciousness! The well-appointed first floor holds a stunning foyer, crown moulding (which is located throughout the entire home), a huge living room with plenty of seating and a flat screen TV, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the patio and pool, dining room (one table holds 8 people and another table holds 6 people, with seating for 10 people on the patio), and the very well stocked kitchen. Enjoy upscale amenities in the fully loaded kitchen: stainless steel appliances, granite countertops (2 stools at the counter), regular coffee pot as well as a Keurig, dishwasher, ice maker and all of the cooking utensils, dishes, glasses and silverware needed to cook a gourmet meal for your family and friends. People have held their family’s Thanksgiving dinner in this spacious area.

We have cable TV which also has music channels; DVD players in the first floor living room, the 2nd floor lounge area and the 3rd floor kids’ recreation room.

The interior designers did a fantastic job at selecting paint colors for each room. Bright and cheery colors for the kids’ rooms with the bunk beds, calm and relaxing colors for the adult bedrooms.

These amenities are available for people with children: high chair, two booster seats, regular size crib, pack and play and an umbrella stroller.

There is a half bath close to the entry way and a laundry room with extra-large washer and dryer, a sink, ironing board and iron.

Also on the 1st floor is a very spacious and lovely king master suite which has two walk-in closets (heated and cooled where a crib is located), a large flat screen TV and the master bathroom has a wonderfully large walk-in natural stone shower, a soaker tub and a two-bowl granite sink. This is perfect if you have older family members who have trouble climbing steps.

The pool is one of the largest in the area which goes from 3’ to 5’ in depth with a little nook and ledge which you can sit on to watch the kids in the pool. Kids love the three jets that shoot out over the pool and colored pool lights for night. For a fee, the pool can be heated if necessary. There are pool toys in a chest. A separate patio area has a table and a large gas grill. For safety, both patio gates by the pool latch automatically so little children cannot get to the pool area unattended. There is a showerhead in the driveway to rinse off the sand when returning from the beach.

There are also two community pools in the complex which are a short walk away from our home. The south community pool is heated during spring weeks.

Destin has the whitest and cleanest beaches in the world. When you are ready to sink your toes in the sugary sand, there is a private beach entrance about a three-minute walk away for Emerald Waters Village visitors. There is a 3-way stop at the corner where you cross the street to our private beach entrance which makes it safer to cross. And the walk is easy for small children.

The second floor has two lovely and tranquil queen bedrooms with private bath and flat screen TVs. Bathrooms have the same walk-in natural stone showers and double sinks. One of them also has a tub.

The second beautiful master suite is also on this floor. It is huge and painted a soothing blue. There are two walk-in closets where there is a pack and play. The bathroom is awesome with double sink, another gorgeous walk-in natural stone double showerhead and a soaker tub if you want to unwind after a very busy day sightseeing.

There is a lounge which has been dubbed The Man Cave! It overlooks the fantastic second floor balcony which is just over the pool. The Man Cave has a flat screen with DVD player, leather sofa and chairs, a small refrigerator and little “bar” area for pouring those refreshing drinks after a hot day at the beach.

The third floor is what we have come to call the Kids’ Floor. There are two darling rooms painted in bright colors; each have 2 bunk beds, dresser and closet for either kids or an adult. There is a Jack and Jill bathroom between one of the bunk rooms and the queen bedroom.

The queen bedroom is a good size room and is decorated in greens and blues with flat screen TV, dresser and closet. The person(s) in this room can use the hall bath for their private bath.

One of the favorite spots for kids/teens will become the recreation room on the 3rd floor. It has a flat screen with DVD, pull-out couch, two huge bean bags that hold a couple of kids, and a foosball table. In the hallway is a shuffleboard table for competition games. There is a table for four where they can play cards, color, whatever they want.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Thank you for thinking about renting our Destin home! Our home, Summer Dreams, has been our dream for several years. We built this house to enjoy with our family and friends. This is not a normal rental property. We wanted a place that no one would forget. Our daughters are active in all sorts of activities. So, like you, our lives are very busy. The beach gives us a chance to unplug and relax. We do not rent to just anyone. We are only willing to rent to families that will treat our home like it was their own. We have no interest in renting to college kids (or by their parents). We love the idea of families coming together and making memories. That's why we have a master suite on the first floor. It allows you to bring the grandparents! We promise the pictures you see are indeed what is in the house. We bought beautiful furniture. You are going to love it. We did not skimp on any area of the house. At least we tried not to. My wife wanted a nice private pool area, I wanted a 'man room' and the girls wanted a game room. Well, we decided to add all three. This house has everything you need to enjoy yourself. So relax, have fun, and make some memories.

Why the Owner Chose Emerald Waters Village (Destin, FL, USA):
Our home is in the perfect location. We are located in a wonderful gated community so traffic is kept to a minimum. The beach is a short walk away and we have our own entrance to our private beach. There is a walking/biking path next to the beach road that run the entire length of the beach road. Perfect for walking, biking or running. Both Silver Sands outdoor shopping and Destin Commons outlet mall are short drives from our home. We have over 4 beautiful golf courses within a 10 minute drive from our home as well.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We cater to families with children. The master suites have portable cribs in the large closets. The closets have heating/cooling vents in them and electrical outlets for baby monitor and a night light. We also have a high chair available. The kids floor does not have a balcony so you never need to worry about them getting hurt. Each adult bedroom has a private bathroom, as well as a TV. Giving you some quite time when you need/want it. This house is also designed for larger groups. The floor plan is very open, with lots of seating for everyone. We are also the only house in our community with 4 parking spaces for your cars.
