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, call 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 Scenic Gulf Drive East

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.

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!

Clean, spacious condo, with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our two young sons. They loved the bunk beds and we found our room to be very comfortable. The views from the balcony are amazing! We would stay in this condo again just for the views. The Almafi resort is beautiful! From the landscaped grounds to the large twin pools, everything was perfect! Sally and Mark's condo has everything you need!

Loved our 2nd Year with Mark and Sally

  • 5 of 5

New patio furniture was a nice attractive touch and really distinguished this unit. This is our "go to" place to stay when we go the beach. Will always check Mark and Sally's place for availability. Price, location, cleanliness, friendliness and helpfulness of owners, the Almafi resort itself is incredible, beach access, free chair/ all adds up to the perfect place for me and my family.

Excelente Condo, limpio, bien equipado, amplio y muy bien ubicado!!!!

  • 5 of 5

A pasos de la playa con un mar esmeralda y arena soñada. El complejo tiene todas las comodidades y su dueña Sally se ha preocupado de todos los detalles. Nos ha hecho sentir como en casa.

Dos reposeras y sombrilla incluidas en la playa.

Un outlet muy cercano, Silver Sands, a sólo 10 cuadras es una invitación y a la vez una tentación. Ofertas de todo tipo y casi todas las marcas.

Excelentes lugares para comer y disfrutar, todo tipo de actividades náuticas en el mar.

Lo recomiendo sin lugar a dudas.

Thanks Mark and Sally
