Florida House-Secluded, Close to Beach on Coastal Dune Lake

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Florida house is one of the few private, single family homes that are available for rent and are actually located within the boundaries of the tiny community of Four Mile Village, despite what the internet tells you. There are no condominiums in this community.

The 'Florida House,' uniquely located on a 50 acre globally rare freshwater coastal dune lake is only a 150 yard walk or drive to one of Florida's most pristine undeveloped sugar white sand beaches and the emerald green waters of the Gulf. A private beach access offers parking.

Turn east along the shore, past the last Village home and you are on the 2 miles of preserved, pristine beach within Topsail Hill State Park Preserve.

This spacious house flows around an attractive atrium and each bedroom has its own private bath and entrance. Cable television and WIFI internet access are provided. There is a king bed in the master and each of the other 3 bedrooms have 2 twin beds.

Enjoy the best of both worlds....

Be a hermit and enjoy a walk on one of the many nature trails nearby. Sit on the back deck and bird-watch , or take a pole to your private dock and fish.

If civilization calls, one of the largest shopping malls in the US, Silver Sands, is just a mile down the highway. Tennis, world class golf and nightly entertainment are next door in Sandestin Resort . If you don't want to cook there are many outstanding restaurants nearby.

Four Mile Village is a private gated community, accessible only to owners and guests or by appointment with the caretakers of the Coffeen Nature Preserve. Only 53 home sites are situated in the approximately 350 acre property which includes a private beach access.

The Florida House is individually owned but managed professionally by Susan Paladini, the Four Mile Village Resident Manager, for David Walker Realty, Inc.

I would highly recommend this property. The photos do a good job of showcasing it. The view from the deck was beautiful. A short walk takes you to the most beautiful beach in the world. On some of our walks we saw small deer several times. There are shops, grocery stores and restaurants nearby. We look forward to our next visit.

Florida House

  • 4 of 5

We vacation in Destin every year and often have rented the Florida House. It is a delightful home tucked away but an easy walk to the beach. The rooms are all nice and the master is extremely large and spacious. It offers a view of a lake from the back of the house which is very relaxing. The town of Destin is only 20 minutes drive and offers many activities.
