Lovely beach home located less than 2 blocks from the white, sandy beaches! Enjoy our small community with the pool within steps of the front door. A double, oversized garage is wonderful to protect you from those afternoon rain showers and keep the car cool in the summer. Private backyard is wonderfully shaded to enjoy grilling in the afternoons. There is also an outdoor shower to wash all the sand off from your day at the beach! Great street for kids to play while parents sit on the front porch 'relaxing'.Need more room? See VRBO#201793 for reviews on our other house across the street.

About Cheri Burns
Both Bill and I are business owners, avid golfers and wine lovers! We have 2 grown kids and now are proud grandparents of 6. And....after a few years of fostering we have adopted a precious baby girl. We recently moved to Destin so we are able to assist our guests quickly if any problems arise.
Cheri Burns purchased this House in 2008
Why Cheri Burns chose Miramar Beach
We have been coming to this area for over 20 years together. This was also a vacation spot in the 60's for my husband and his friends to come fishing. We kicked ourselves for not buying back in the early 80's and just suffered until 2008. We finally decided that the time was right and we fell in love with this quaint little community. It was a perfect place to bring our families to and a fabulous place to make memories of a lifetime with the grandkids.
What makes this House unique
The biggest benefit that we love is the garage. It rains pretty frequently here in the afternoons and it is nice not to get soaked going back and forth from the car. Also...short trip from the car to the kitchen and bedrooms!!! Also, the front porch is nice to sit on and relax in the evenings or to watch the kids play. Or the private, fenced backyard. You don't have many places with yards here.... The community is small and the cul-de-sac is nice for the grandkids to ride their bikes in. The pool is just steps away next door and that is oh so nice! The feeling is just a home away from home feel with the added bonus of the beach just a short walk away!

Sports & Adventure Activities
Great property with central location to beach, shopping, activities. House was awesome and neighbors were friendly and helpful. Cheri took great care of us, would definitely rent again! Thank you!
Nice, spacious, and quiet place near the beach - recommended
This is a very nice town home - only connected to the adjacent property by the garage. Large master and bath downstairs and two BRs upstairs provided plenty of space - and one BR has a balcony. Also, unlike many beach condos, it was exceptionally quiet, which was great. It's a quick 5 minute walk to the beach, and restaurants and activities are close by.
No real negatives, but it would be nice if the hot tub was in working order (or removed...it's like it's taunting you to use it, but you can't). Also, the road you take to walk to the beach doesn't have a sidewalk...not a huge deal since there's still sufficient room to walk, but you'd think the town would install one for added pedestrian safety since it's a residential area. Overall, we had a great stay and I'd recommend the property to other vacationers.
I am glad to hear you all enjoyed the house and your vacation! The sidewalk was scheduled to be done March of this year but the utilities underground has caused a delay. We are hoping they get it started soon, but will need to still use the man made "path" until then.
I apologize about the hot tub. I do not advertise the property as having one as the liability and upkeep is just too much.
Please come back and visit us again soon!
A great place!
We just got back from our week in Destin and really enjoyed SunBurns (Cheri was great to work with). We have been vacationing in Destin for over 30 years and have stayed at the same two places on the beach each trip up until now. I wasn't sure I'd like staying a bit off the beach but it definitely has advantages. It is very quiet being away from the traffic and noise, and the community is actually a bit secluded. The walk to the beach wasn't bad at all (just a few minutes) and the four way stop at the end of the road makes crossing very easy and safe for the kids. The house has a nice layout with three well-separated bedrooms and a very private patio, and the outdoor shower is great to have when coming back from the beach covered with sand. The pool was nice and was never crowded.
Great Vacation Home Close To Beach
I had the pleasure of staying at this property for a week over the Memorial Day weekend. Met the owner which was very accomodating and offered to take care of any item that was not as exactly as advertised. Very nice accomodations with all the amenties one could ask for. Master bedroom down with separate master bath suite. Two very nice bedrooms upstairs with one bathroom. Very nice furnishings and well maintained. TV's with satellite service were a nice touch. A quick walk or drive puts you on the beach in minutes. Very close to shopping and restaurants. Property has it's own private clean pool. Recommend this property for anyone looking for a nice place to stay away from the typical condo traffic (lots of people, elevators, and stairs).
BEST VACATION HOME EVER!
BEST VACATION HOME EVER!
Four years ago my wife and I “discovered” the Destin-Miramar Beach area; a beautiful refuge from the seemingly endless snow and cold Winter weather of New England.
We also “discovered” Bill and Cheri and their vacation rental home in Miramar Beach. Two nice people who made our winter stay in Florida a very comfortable and pleasant experience.
It’s a joy to step out of the front door and walk across the street to the private pool, or just spend four minutes to walk down the street to the famous white sand beach on the Gulf. Even when it was a rainy afternoon, we could sit on the covered front porch and have lunch or read a book. On the days we wanted to ‘work on our tan’ and didn’t want to hit the beach, we just stretched out on the second floor balcony and soaked in the ‘rays!
The vacation house itself was delightful! The kitchen was up-to-date. Very modern. Everything you need to whip-up a special or everyday meal. The satellite TV has most every channel one could want. And, the WiFi has a nice strong connection to keep you in touch with family and friends. We sent that “Wish You Were Here” email to all our friends we knew were shoveling snow, and smiled just a little.
The three bedrooms were especially welcome when the grandchildren came to visit, AND the back patio with the big covered table and chairs and the grill was another welcome addition. There’s nothing like a scrumptious hamburger cooked on a barbeque. This keeps the little ones happy and quiet. And, the shower on the back patio is handy for getting rid of that pesky beach sand.
A time saver was the large modern washer and dryer at the back of the garage. We found that to be super convenient.
I could go on-and-on about the great times we have spent each Winter at Cheri and Bill’s vacation home. That’s why we’ve come back for three years and we’ll keep coming back as long as they’ll have us!
