Is it time to leave the noisy, crowded high-rises and elevators behind, and experience classic Florida coastal living? Then our "right on the beach" townhouse is just what you need. This traditional low-rise complex is simple—no swimming pool or tennis courts. But when you have an amenity as special as this stretch of the Gulf, what else do you need? True beach lovers will delight in the peace and quiet that only these older, smaller properties can offer.

Uncluttered beaches, leaving your beach chairs propped against the stairs, toasting the sunset with your closest friends and family—this is the "Florida of Yesteryear." Relax with your morning coffee or late afternoon cocktail while being serenaded by the rhythmic waves and the melancholy calls of local seagulls. Easy, laid-back, no muss, no fuss, "come-as-you-are" beach living. This is the life!

The complex was built in the 1980's and retains its classic coastal charm. Modern conveniences like keyless entry, washer/dryer, 24/7 Guest Help line, and free WIFI are yours to enjoy. At Gulf Sands you have an older property with a million-dollar view that's easy on the wallet.

Designed for large families and groups, this three-level townhouse has glorious views from all levels. The ground floor has two adjacent bedrooms with a shared bath. The larger bedroom has two queen beds and the other has two twins with an entrance to the balcony and beach. The full bath and washer/dryer complete this level. For your convenience, a separate window unit regulates the temperature in the ground floor rooms.

Stretch out, relax and enjoy family time together on the second floor, complete with sleeper sofa, dining room and fully equipped kitchen—perfect for creating memorable meals. Sliding doors open to the balcony and that glorious view. Dine al fresco, watch the kids play on the sand, or savor some peace and quiet with that first cup of morning coffee while the pelicans float by on their way to their favorite fishing spot. A half-bath on this level is convenient and close.

Upstairs on the third level, you will find the master suite and an additional guest room. The master features a king bed, flat screen TV, incredible view and private bath with separate vanity. The guest room on this floor has a king bed and private bath.

Miramar Beach is a nostalgic beach community with that classic coastal feel, But you can still find the modern amenities and activities that please the whole family. Water sports, fabulous restaurants, and great shopping are all nearby.

Gulf Sands West is a perfect location--walk to several popular restaurants including Kenny D's, Captain Dave's on the Gulf, and Pompano Joe's. You are less than three miles from groceries, Destin Commons and the Silver Sands Premium Outlets--one of the nation's largest designer outlet centers. And Henderson State Park with a pet-friendly nature trail, playground and pavilions for picnicking and grilling, is only four miles away.

So load up the family and the fur-kids and prepare to kick back, feel the sand between your toes, soak up the sun and unwind on one of the best beaches in the country. Under 25, pets, and Spring Break Groups are welcome (see "Pet Policies," "Terms and Conditions" and "Local Area Guide" for more information).

If you are a fan of Coakraches Black mold and a gaunt mouse then this is your place

Don't waste your time with this hole it pretty much ruined our vacation

Not impressed

  • 1 of 5

The property has a great location but is older and has some issues. This seems more like a frat house. We had black mold on the vents in the upstairs bedroom and it advertises having a tv in the master bedroom but that's it there is no cable to it so it's useless. The property management came out and switched the tv and fiddled with it but we told them we thought it was a cox issue and they never addressed that. The shower leaked from upstairs into the living room. The window unit for downstairs looks really bad from the outside. The toilet leaks in the basement sometimes and my 19 month old ran in there and slipped in the pissy water and busted his head when he fell backwards. They shut the wireless network off the day before we left and when we called about it no response back. The free activities that is advertised for instances the deap sea fishing unless there is 22 plus people wanting to do it you can't go so that is useless. Like I said the property has a great location so if your not planning on staying in it much or your going to stay intoxicsted the whole time it would be a perfect place to stay. It also has great views. The main living room only has a couch as well and the other little chairs are not very comfortable so it's hard to mingle there at night with a large group. Last thing there is not a deck anymore on the third story so if you sleep walk don't stay in that room my father almost went over the wooden railing they have outside that door blocking people from walking out it (he is 6"4).
