About Kathleen Casey

My husband and I are the proud parents of two grown, married children and the ecstatic grandparents of six! We all love to vacation on the beautiful beaches of the Emerald Coast and Destin.

Kathleen Casey purchased this house in 2011

Why Kathleen Casey chose Miramar Beach

My husband and I spent many vacations with our children in the Destin area while they were growing up. Now, we get to share our vacation home with our guests and grandchildren when they visit! We love the close proximity of this home to the beach and the neighborhood amenities. There are many areas of the home to allow a quiet space for all, yet all rooms are located on one floor in our ranch home. There is a great mix of indoor and outdoor spaces.

What makes this house unique

Two of the highlights of this home are the one minute walk to the pool and the 2-3 minute walk to the beach!

Very clean and nicely decorated

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house in Emerald Shores community. There was lots of room for our family. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything you could possibly need to make meals for a large family. The new beach wagon was so nice to carry all of our stuff to the beach. The convenience of an ocean side restroom and changing facility was so nice. The week we were there, the weather got cold, but our kids were able to still enjoy the heated pool.

The owner was prompt to answer our questions. I would highly recommend this house for families.
