Welcome To Devine Opal, a Destin Florida vacation rental home, centrally located within the gated resort community of Emerald Shores. Devine Opal is a two story, two- thousand square foot beach home with all the amenities you expect. This lovely property is just a short walk to the sugar white sands and emerald green waters of Miramar Beach, Florida. The gated resort community of Emerald Shores is a tropical, family oriented,

beach-side community of majestic beach homes, approximately 300 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. When you arrive at your vacation paradise, you will feel right at home.

Here is a summary of what you will find. Our home in Miramar Beach is located one mile east of the mid-bridge, close to all of the entertainment that Destin and Sandestin have to offer. Our favorite places to visit are; Destin Harbor, Baytown Wharf, Silver Sands Outlet Mall, and Grand Boulevard. Several major golf courses are nearby and just a few miles to the putt-putt or water park. Google these sites for more information while making your vacation plans.

Slumber in the bonus room (which has a great view to the 55 inch television) on one of the two day beds with trundles, which we’ve arranged with children in mind.

Why Laurie McReynolds or Krista Salome chose Miramar Beach

Krista and Laurie are from Texas. They have been friends for more than 20 years. Krista is a graduate from Baylor University but is a Texas Aggie at heart. She has 3 sons who are A&M graduates and were in the Corps of Cadets. Laurie is a Tarleton graduate. She has 2 lovely daughters. Both owners are Texans by birth, but are hopefully future Floridians and both love the white sands and emerald blue waters of Destin, Florida. Both have vacationed in Destin for years and decided that it was time to buy a home so they can spend more time close to the beautiful emerald waters of Destin. They have put a lot of time, money, and energy into making this their home away from home. They actually did the remodeling with Laurie's husband-Steve. Steve is a gifted remodeler; they were just good helpers!!

Laurie and Krista considered many locations within the Destin, Florida area. But once they saw the fabulous location, wonderful beach access, immaculate community, and the terrific amenities that Emerald Shores had to offer, there was no need to look any further. Just as there is no need to look any further for a great vacation rental than Devine Opal in the Emerald Shores community. This area is our favorite. It's so convenient!!!
