Arcadia -

This gracious three story, four bedroom Mediterranean style home resembles a castle-like villa with its elegant curved entry staircase and terracotta roof crown. In fact, this Destin vacation home is located within the upscale neighborhood of homes known as Terracotta Terrace which is adjacent to Scenic Gulf Drive. This privileged community has double tennis courts, a space for sand volleyball as well as a community swimming pool complete with an expansive sun deck, showers, restroom facilities, dressing rooms and even a sauna. Not that you will need to use the dressing rooms since Arcadia is conveniently located only steps away. It’s also just a short scenic stroll to the beautiful white sand beaches and emerald green waters!

Arcadia’s 3,500 square feet of space provides ample room for everyone and comfortably accommodates up to sixteen guests. The first floor has a two car garage that leads into guest quarters that include a state of the art “Media Room” and two bedrooms that share a full hall bathroom. The first floor patio features an outdoor pool table as well!

The second floor has a spacious Great Room with sunny windows and glass doors that lead out onto one of the covered balconies. This open space has rich travertine flooring that sweeps from the living room into the dining and kitchen areas. This area is handsomely decorated in a tropical theme including leather furnishings that face a flat screen TV. There is also a kid’s media room adjacent. A dining table sits in one part of the room under a vintage chandelier. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances which includes a gas island range, oven and a large side by side refrigerator. Black granite counter tops include a multi-sided bar with raised seating which creates a special hub for serving savory seafood appetizers. This beach home is wonderful for entertaining since it has high tech surround sound systems, CDs, DVDs and flat screen TVs in every bedroom. The second floor covered balcony has a gas grill along with a table and outdoor seating for the enjoyment of dining el fresco. This interconnects to the upstairs balcony via a beautiful spiral staircase.

The third floor has another Guest Bedroom with and seating area with a Sleeper Sofa. The rest of this floor includes the opulent Master Bedroom Suite that has molasses toned hardwood flooring, a comfortable king sized bed, a spacious living area and access to its own beautiful balcony. The adjoining walk in closet is so large that it houses an additional king bed. This luxurious suite has a big private bathroom that is richly accented with granite counters and travertine marble flooring. It includes two vanities with individual sinks, a corner garden tub and a separate glassed in walk-in shower.

On top of the home there is a rooftop sun deck that offers panoramic views of the distant gulf and is the perfect place to view the spectacular sunsets. If you are ever able to pull yourself away from living in the home, you will find popular beachfront restaurants, world class shopping, golfing and area entertainment are just minutes away by car so enjoy!

Loved Acardia.

  • 5 of 5

Neighborhood quiet, pool was clean, house was spacious enough for our group of 16. Just steps from the beautiful beach. Had a couple issues with house. Repair guy was there within 30 minutes and took care of it. I would recommend Ocean Reef if you are planning a trip Destin.

High School Senior Boys Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was PERFECT for our needs. Clean and spacious. We had 4 families - 15 people - and the space was exactly what we needed. Not crowded at all. Each adult couple had their own private bedroom, and the teenage boys camped out on pull-out couches and/or air mattresses - when they finally decided to go to bed. :) Access to the beach was great! We used the beach/sand volleyball court everyday. The pool was a nice change from the ocean every once in awhile. The 5-ish mile stretch of sidewalk was perfect for morning runs/walks and we felt that our boys, as well as our 11-14 year old kids were safe walking along the path. Quick access to grocery stores, malls and convenience stores. I would definitely rent this property again!

Amazing Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Arcadia for our yearly family vacation to Destin. This home suited all of our needs! The house is in a great location! I like the fact that it was in a nice neighborhood close to the beach, and near all the Destin attractions. The house itself was wonderful! Enough space for our growing family, and enough kitchen space so I could comfortably cook dinner and prepare meals. A huge plus is the owner allows pets so I could bring along my little yorkie. We enjoyed having the community pool to cool off after our daily visits to the beach. Great house, easy walk to the beach, beautiful neighborhood. I would recommend it to any of my friends and.
