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.

Destin Florida Rental Home
-----------------------------------------------------------------
A South Pacific themed three story luxury vacation home located about 125 yards from the beach (2 min. 45 sec. stroll) and is only two houses away from the main neighborhood pool.

This is a great set-up for three families with the third floor game room providing a private TV and play area for the kids or it can be used as a fifth bedroom with the futon sleeper.

TV's are located in every room. A total of 6 flat screen TV's, Six DVD/MP3/CD’s and Two Home Theater Systems with wall mounted speakers are in the home. This includes a 55' LCD flat screen TV in the 1st floor living room and one in the game room.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Miramar Beach, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Gated Community - All of our homes are located in the highly desirable gated family community, EMERALD SHORES. Beach Pavillion - 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. Wi Fi - 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!
