South Seas is a 3000 square foot luxury beach home just a stroll from the sugar white beaches and gorgeous emerald waters of Destin, Florida.

South Seas is located on the first beach street within the gated resort community of Emerald Shores, a tropical, family-oriented, beach ownership community of upscale homes, situated 100 yards from the Gulf of Mexico.

You will enjoy the two large heated community pools, the close proximity to the beach, access to the beach pavilion, on-site tennis, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard and the security of gated entrances.

The privately owned beach pavilion is for owners and guests only and is accommodated by private bathrooms, outdoor showers, and beach service (chairs and umbrella). We're the only community in Destin with this feature! A beach tram operates seasonally within Emerald Shores.

We are close to restaurants, water sports, and centrally located between major golf courses and shopping. We are less than 2 miles from two of the largest shopping complexes in North Florida!

The Silver Sands Outlet Mall is the largest designer outlet in the nation and the newly opened Destin Commons is a unique, open-air village, featuring upscale shopping, casual and fine dining, and a 14-screen movie theater.

From South Seas, you can safely bike with the kids through the neighborhood and along the paved bike paths for awesome beach views, this being our favorite activity. Ask about beach bike delivery and pick-up to South Seas!

Your family can walk to various beach front restaurants including Captain Dave's On The Gulf, Kenny's Oyster Palace, The Crab Trap, or Pompano Joe's Seafood. These restaurants are so close and convenient to our home it allows you to effortlessly sample some of the local seafood flavors or to just kick back and enjoy the relaxing beach views while sipping on a frothy cold tropical libation.

About Jay Coppic - South Seas

Our very first road trip to Destin was in 1987. We immediately fell in love with the sugar white beaches and pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It was our little secret love nest that consisted mostly of walking on the beach and regular trips to the fish market. Well, Destin is no longer our little secret and we are very passionate about sharing all that it has to offer. Betty is a local realtor and our rental management company is located less than a mile from this property.

Jay Coppic - South Seas purchased this house in 2004

Why Jay Coppic - South Seas chose Miramar Beach

We have traveled extensively and "rented" property for our own family vacations. So we fully understand and appreciate the importance of finding a great location, having easy access to amenities, and a quality home that is clean and well maintained. In 2001 we took the plunge and purchased our first property in Destin and started living "The Dream". Eventually we moved to Destin full-time. Whether you are looking to rent a high-quality vacation home or looking to purchase something for your family, we have the experience to help. Please call or email us, we would love to hear from you.

What makes this house unique

• Gated Community - All of our homes are located in the highly desirable gated family community, EMERALD SHORES.

• Beach Pavilion - The ONLY community in Destin to have their very own private beach pavilion complete with cabana bar, restrooms, showers and beach service. A "One of a Kind" amenity!

• Beach Access - A few minutes walk from any of our homes is all it takes to get to the Emerald Shores private beach access.

• WiFi - All of our homes have FREE wifi. Stay connected while on vacation.

• Amenities - The community has two pools, tennis court, basketball court, shuffle board and a volleyball court for your use while on vacation.

• Extras - Each home is equipped with a propane gas grill. Two beach wagons are provided for you to cart small kids, ice chests, beach toys, beach gear, etc.. This is all to make you feel at home while on vacation!

Great Home Setup

  • 5 of 5

We loved the setup of this home. We had three families and each family had privacy on the three levels of the home. The owners are great to work with, Destin is beautiful, the pool was warm and very clean. This is an awesome house, we were very pleased.

Perfect Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here April 2015 with some girlfriends. Weather was awful but we still had a great time. House is a few minute walk to the beach. Lots of shopping, restaurants close by. Well appointed and beautiful furnishings. Plan on coming back with my family. Would definitely rent here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and we will definitely try and dial in some of the great weather and water that we are noted for on your next visit. Since your visit last year, we have had many new openings such as Lulu's (Jimmy Buffet's sister), World of Beer, and a Whole Foods, all in our neck of the woods. Thank you again, Jay & Betty

Beautiful, spacious home with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

Huge home with lots of room for everyone. Could have brought another family with us and still had plenty of space. Furnishings are new/modern and everything is super-clean. Kitchen iss fully stocked and there is a nice breakfast bar in addition to a large dining table. Two separate living spaces were a plus when the kids wanted to do their own thing. All the beds are VERY comfortable and master bathroom has a fabulous jacuzzi tub and walk-in closet. Very short walk to beach, pool and tennis/basketball courts. Owner was great to work with also! Our only critique is that the air conditioning cannot be set any lower than 72 degrees. We're used to sleeping in cooler temperatures. Fans helped, but would have liked it a bit cooler. If we find ourselves vacationing in Destin again, we'll definitely stay here!

Best house ever

  • 5 of 5

It was the little things that made the experience even better than we anticipated...Jay called us to let us know the unit was ready earlier than expected, and we found baby gates (which we had forgotten to bring for our 1 year old). Jay recommended dining places (all good, I might add!). The beach was a close walk and the pavilion with restrooms for Emerald Shores guests was a blessing for our toddler. It was perfect for our extended family of 6 adults and 2 children. Exceptional.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

South Seas had everything! The kitchen was the best stocked of any rental house in which we have ever stayed. The dishes and glassware were extra nice; with more flatware than you could ever need. The bed was extremely comfortable; the master bathroom and closet were spacious. The house was clean, well maintained, the furniture was comfortable, the decor beautiful, and the location of Emerald Shores is central to everything. Booking was easy and convenient. Everything about the house was perfect, which is why we will be back next year! It's just a shame there were only two of us to enjoy that big, lovely house!

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at one of Jay & Betty's places. We couldn't have wanted anything more. The house is very well stocked. It is beautifully decorated as are all their homes. They are such a joy to work with. This home has so much space. Families can be together or have private space if they want. We enjoyed it for a month. I always hate leaving. I can't wait to go back.
