About the property

The Ultimate Beach experience for your family! Private Beach

'The Splash House' is about as close as you can ever get to the gulf and our gorgeous white sand beaches. The name 'Splash House' comes from the fact that you can walk right out the living room deck onto the beach, and gulf waters! No roads to cross, your own private beach awaits your family.

The first level of the home has a large open concept design, with kitchen, dining, and living areas. Also a full bathroom. Large gulf front deck leads you out to the beach. The deck also has a nice gas grill for the BBQ'er.

The second level of the home, has 3 additional bedrooms, all with there own private baths. There is also a second level covered deck that is accessible from all 3 bedrooms, for more outstanding views of the gulf and beach!

30A bike and walking paths are to the north of the home for recreation as well.

Several outstanding restaurants are within walking distance, including Stinkys, the shops at Gulf Place, and Goatfeathers.

Several challenging golf courses are close by, to test your skills from beginner to pro.

Deep Sea fishing? The Destin harbor is close by for charter fishing.

Shopping? We are a close drive to the Destin/SanDestin areas, for world class shopping, and additional dining choices.

Our home definitely has the location! Close to shopping, dining, golfing, but also very private as well.

There are not many areas in our location, that are free from large condos on the beach, but this location has it! Only private homes in our area, so no crowds on the beach!

We love the unique area along 30A in South Walton County, no big developments, just a gorgeous private setting! Come to the beach for your private vacation, one that you will truly remember forever. See why families come to this area year after year, you will not be disappointed.

Third Time's a Charm

  • 5 of 5

Perfect trip. Don't let the size fool you. This 1600 sq ft house utilizes space to the max. The things that make this house workable for our three couples and gaggle of children are: first floor great room with kitchen allow for people sitting in living room or at huge farmhouse table to allow for great conversation while enjoying great ocean views at the same time through the wall to wall glass; Upstairs, each bedroom has it's own bath....and that's a great relationship saver when "living" with so many people in one house; The ocean and beach are down the stairs and just a few steps away, and outside living is where most time is spent. A new gas grill made for great cooking, the house was clean and in great order. Any needs were met promptly by Keven, as always! We hate to wander from the house for outside activities because any time away is time away from OUR beach, but we did rent a pontoon and took a trip to shell island for an afternoon and we scheduled a fishing trip with Reel Contender. We will be back til we get to old to travel!

We had a wonderful time, having the beach right at your door was great. It was very nice to have a bathroom in every bedroom. The only complaint would be not having working cable tv in 2 of the bedrooms (no signal), since we had a couple of rainy days, but other than that we loved it!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying at The Splash House! Mediacom cable finally did get out to the house (very slow customer service on there part), and they did get the 2 bedrooms that had the outage going again. We are sorry for the inconvenience there. Thanks again Kevin and Mary

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

WOW sums up what my entire family thought when they saw the Splash House in person! The views were stunning, as well as breath taking! It was exactly what we were looking for in a home on the beach. You walked off the steps right into the sand and less than 40 yards you are able to dip your feet in the water. The sleeping quarters met our needs with 6 adults and 6 young children, it was perfect. We did find we needed a few kitchen items but the next time we go, we will know to bring them along. The fact that this house is so close to grocery shopping and other discount places, such as Dollar General, makes it great too. The owner, Kevin, was excellent on getting back to me as soon as I had a question prior to check in. Our week's vacation went way to quick but we are already looking forward to returning next year!
