About Ocean Reef

For over thirty-five years Ocean Reef has distinguished itself as the leading vacation rental property management company on the Emerald Coast. Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why Ocean Reef chose Miramar Beach

Northwest Florida is home to two distinctly different world-class beach vacation destinations. The first is Destin – filled with excitement, family attractions, shopping, dining, fishing, vibrant nightlife and, of course, white sand beaches. The other is South Walton – home to the same breathtaking beaches but with greater focus on the preservation of nature and with intentionally less development. Miramar Beach is positioned between Destin and South Walton, making it the ideal destination to experience the best of both worlds. While the draw of its neighbors is strong, visitors of Miramar Beach may choose not to leave this oasis. Perfectly situated between the Gulf of Mexico and the Choctawhatchee Bay, fishermen and water sport enthusiasts will have plenty of options to indulge here. Off the water, guests will enjoy shopping at the nation’s largest designer outlet mall – Silver Sands Premium Outlets. In addition to Silver Sands, other premier shopping and entertainment options include Grand Boulevard and Baytowne Wharf. Fresh seafood eateries are scattered throughout Miramar Beach and the famed Scenic Gulf Drive offers several locations with exceptional beachfront dining.

Could be nice, but this home has many issues

  • 3 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at Ocean Blue and although we had a nice vacation, the house had many issues.

First of all (as previous reviewers mentioned), it has a serious bug problem! When we arrived, the separate guest house was infested with carpenter ants (the large ones with wings). There were hundreds of them. We immediately called the rental company who sent pest control right out to spray and then followed by a cleaning crew. It seemed that the bug treatment worked at first, but we kept seeing random ants throughout the rest of the week in the guest house and some in the main house. We also killed 3 very large roaches in the main house and 1 in the guest house. We noticed a window in the kitchen and one in an upstairs bedroom that had large cracks/openings where bugs could easily slip in.

The decor of the home is interesting and although there were many nice aspects to it, a lot of the rooms are really dark and it did not feel like a beach home. Most of the walls and trim are painted dark colors. I felt like I was in the Beast's castle at Disney. The lighting in most rooms was little to none and many of the lighting fixtures need to be updated. The den furniture wasn't comfortable or practical and there was not enough space for everyone to sit when we were all in the den.

The floor seemed dirty like it hadn't been moped in a while. There were cobwebs on some of the furniture and lots of dust when I tried to close and open the curtains in the bedrooms.

3 out of the 5 televisions didn't work. The rental agency sent someone out to fix them, but only one was able to be fixed.

The master bathroom toilet only flushed when it wanted to (like every second or third time).

Some PROS about the home:

The absolute best thing about the home is the private pool area!! Most private pools are small, but this one was the perfect size for our family and there was a nice covered patio area where we enjoyed drinking coffee in the mornings.

I really enjoyed the kitchen which had nice appliances like a Viking range, refrigerator and ice maker.

The master bedroom and bathroom were very spacious. We enjoyed the large walk-in shower with dual shower heads.

We loved The Caribe neighborhood! It's very charming, quaint, quiet, feels safe, has two nice neighborhood pools and private beach. I could live there!

Overall, Ocean Blue could be a nice home and we might go back, but first it needs fumigating, updating and a major deep cleaning!

Owner's Response: Scarlotte, thanks for the feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your vacation. Unfortunately in Florida you will run into pests from time to time. This time of year especially. We have sent over the pest control to do an extra treatment in between the quarterly service the home already receives. The roaches that you saw are actually called Palmetto Bugs. They generally can be found in areas with a lot of vegetation and palm trees. Thank you for letting us know about the gap in the window. We have sent maintenance over to make necessary repairs. We will definitely get with the cleaning crew for that property and make sure that they are more attentive and detailed on the cleans that are performed. We do apologize for the inconveniences during your stay but hope to see you back on the beach next year. Just give us a call when you are ready to return.

The pool was the best part of the home. The home could use a thorough cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

Overall the stay was enjoyable mostly due to the pool. The location was convenient. The on-site tennis court was nice to have, but the court was terrible in that it wasn't level and the net strap was gone. Some things that were bad: There was a lot trash in the bushes around the pool. The house really needs to be gone thru and cleaned and some maintenance done. The dishes were not clean and counters not clean in the kitchen. Light bulbs were burnt out in several rooms. The house didn't appear to have been vacuumed or mopped in quite some time. There were several bugs and many cob webs in various places. The freezer in the kitchen leaked in the floor. While sitting on the foot of one of the beds it collapsed and had to be lifted back up on the miscellaneous lift pieces. A handyman showed up unannounced to do work... and there is more...

Very disappointed with this property.

  • 1 of 5

The non-traditional decor was not conducive for comfort. Moreover, the property was dusty, infested with palmetto bugs alive and dead and the AC in the first floor master was not working properly and did not adequately cool the space. I could only stay two nights and had to move out the morning of my birthday. I would not recommend this property to anyone.
