Want to stay in a place that arks around a tropical lagoon on one of the highest elevations on the Emerald Coast? If so, then you have got to try our condo at the Amalfi Coast or at least our Florida version of the Italian original. Barefoot by the Sea sits on eight and one half acres of beautifully landscaped grounds on Scenic Gulf Drive. The elevation here was created by an old dune which was used by mariners to mark this part of the beach from the adjacent flats. The gated beach access across the street from the Amalfi Coast takes full advantage of this height with an old fashioned Observation Gazebo which sits above the staircase that leads down to the beach. The condo complex wraps around twin swimming pools which are elevated above a natural lagoon with a festive fountain. A graceful, arching pedestrian bridge from the pool area crosses over the lagoon and past the palm trees to take you to the beach. The simultaneous views of the twin pools, lush landscaping, lagoon and grassy lawns with the gulf in the distance are quite stunning. Barefoot by the Sea is one bedroom with two baths, fully equipped kitchen, open dining and living areas, a hallway cove that includes bunk beds, washer and dryer as well as the covered balcony.

$300 reservation deposit required to hold the unit at time of reservation by check or credit card. Balance of rent due 30 days prior to arrival. Damage deposit secured by credit card on file. Cancellations of less than 30 days subject to loss of deposit.

Rental not available to vacationing students or singles under age of 25. No smoking and no pets. For reservations or questions call 850-830-2037 after 6 p.m., CST, on weekdays or 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends

Our condo shares one thing in common which is a fantastic location on Miramar Beach. Located half way between Destin and Scenic 30A in South Walton you have the best of both worlds so to speak, due to its conveniently centralized location. Scenic Gulf Drive has beachfront dining just minutes away at The Whale's Tail, Pompano Joe's, Royal Palm Grill and The Crab Trap. The largest Designer Outlet Silver Sands, is also located in Miramar Beach. A multitude of restaurants, shops, galleries and live entertainment abound nearby at Sandestin, Baytowne Wharf and on Grand Boulevard.

Brand new state of the art Sacret Heart Hospital within two miles with 24 hour emergency and helicopter.

About Mark and Sally Curran

We are a military family and I retired in the area after serving 22 years in the United States Air Force.

Mark and Sally Curran purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mark and Sally Curran chose Miramar Beach

I knew the Emerald Coast and this little slice of paradise was my 'home' after my tour to Eglin AFB almost 25 years ago. I met my husband here and we love the powder sugar beaches of the area, swimming, boating and fishing. Destin is 'the Luckiest Little Fishing Village' so we knew immediately that we would put down permanent roots here. We want to share our home and treasured beaches with our family from Illinois, friends and visiting guests. We hope you can visit and fall in love with our beautiful paradise just like we did so many years ago!

What makes this condo unique

The location of our condo will take your BREATH AWAY!! Our second floor unit is safe and secure, provides spectacular views, away from potential pedestrian noise from pool and the street. The resort is gated for your security and now offers a fitness center. This stretch of Miramar Beach doesn't have unsightly high rises. It provides for a relaxing vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you both so much for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. We have so many wonderful Destin memories from many years back, but this was by far our best vacation ever! The condo was so clean an comfortable! We loved the beach service and easy beach access. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful week we had and your condo was a huge part of it!

Great stay for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this condo. The condo is set perfectly with a view of the ocean out the balcony and the pools are also visible. Very spacious, all amenities, nice layout and great location. Literally just a short walk to the beach (right across the small road). Our kids loved the bunk beds and we enjoyed eating on the patio most mornings and nights!

Paradise Revisited!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of once again staying in Miramar Beach at the wonderful condo at Amalfi Coast Resort. This was our 3rd winter and every year just gets better and better at this unit. Furniture was updated recently as well as fresh paint throughout. Once again we were in need of nothing. Enjoyed all the amenities and local hang-outs that are there for enjoyment. We highly recommend this condo for rental as the owners are here for you and are on top of everything you may need! We are coming back this fall and can't wait. Thank again Mark and Sally!

The condo was amazing! The owners make you feel at home. The only problem I had was the Internet and TV. Kept saying no signal on the TV an internet wouldn't connect. Restaurants were awesome! We hope to go back next year!! If you go be sure and check out the "Back Porch" & McGuires. Amazing food and kid friendly!! Condo is very clean and kitchen has everything you need if you want to stay in and cook.

After I had paid I then found out it wasn't directly on the beach, that was disappointing.

  • 3 of 5

2nd, the couch and bed was not comfortable at all. You sank into the couch just sitting on it. My cousin said she could feel the springs sleeping on couch. The bed , I felt like I was going to roll off no matter what side I laid on.

And last, no screen on balcony door to hear the ocean, and wasps were always out there so you couldn't even sit out there.

The place in itself was pretty, I just think you need to update the living room couch, chairs, etc and the bed.



Warm regards,

Sally Maj
