Also, for the younger guests, a nautically/pirate themed outdoor playground features a 1,750 square foot soft play area with various creatures from the sea, slides, and a treasure chest!  Destin Commons also has a mini train for the kids. Destin Commons features over 75 shops and restaurants, including Godiva Chocolates, AMC Movie Theaters and Bass Pro Shop. 

All the excitement of Destin is just minutes away: choice of watersports, golf, amusement parks, and outlet shopping.  One glimpse of Destin beaches and you're hooked. It must be the wide, white beaches and the famous emerald waters. Not to mention the fabulous fishing, the world's most beautiful beaches, addictive seafood and the full array of activities for kids of all ages and more fun to be found in Destin.

If you are near Miramar Beach, the snorkelers in your group will love the new artificial reef called Dolphin Reef, deployed in 2017.  Located just 685 feet straight out from the Miramar Regional Public Beach access (by Pompano Joe's), it is becoming a haven for sea life. Each of the 4 snorkeling reefs comprises 40 acres of permitted sea bottom. The Dolphin Reef is at a depth of 12-20 feet. We strongly recommend that snorkelers use a kayak, paddleboard, or other flotation device when visiting the snorkel reefs. Sea conditions can and do change quickly and often. Enjoy!

"The Jewel at Terra Cotta was such a beautiful home. The house smelled clean as soon as we opened the door. The backyard was nice. 10 pm quiet time is enforced. The walk to the beach was not bad at all. The beach was absolutely beautiful. The private beach area reserved for Terra Cotta residents was a little small but since our trip was in September, it was fine since it wasn't as crowded. The area felt safe. Everything worked. Everything was clean. Definitely recommend the Jewel at Terra Cotta. Each bunk is equipped with a personal fan, light, and outlet. Very convenient for a group of friends staying. The only thing the house was missing was a full-length mirror. A group of girls definitely need one of those 🙂 we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

"Jewel of Terra Cotta! - This estate is truly a Gem! Upon arrival to the Jewel of Terra Cotta we were absolutely amazed how beautiful, clean, comfortable and modern appearance of this incredible home. It looks and feels brand new! I personally love the layout of the house; very spacious open floor plan for our party of five adults. Huge beautiful 3bed/3bath all spaciously separated makes you feel like you are the only ones there. The backyard was my oasis, the pool is a real plus for this property. The luxury of taking a relaxing dip after a long fun day and evening bbq on a private deck. The location to the beautiful beach is reasonably close and love the private access to the clean beach and turquoise water! They do offer other amenities on the Enclave grounds but we didn’t use them, our party was beach struck. Vrbo & RealJoy were spot-on with their professional and courteous services; everything from checkin to checkout was smooth and seamless. Their communication and customer service was the key; we had two very minor issues onsite, I notified RealJoy and they promptly resolved the issues the very next day. They even sent me very useful information on what to do and see in Destin, a nice touch from the experienced locals. Amazing vacation getaway! I would definitely stay here again. Five Star rating from all of us! Cheers, Tim R"
