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!

Cousins Trip 2022 - We had a total of 15 and we had a blast. All cousins had more than enough room. The house was clean and made us feel at home. So close to the beach and right around the corner from the pool. Beds were comfortable and we had enough space outside for 3 suv's. The perfect beach house for the summer.

2 week stay with 16 guests - We stayed at this property over Christmas and New Years and enjoyed it. The neighborhood is lovely, we all enjoyed the pool and even went to the beach. The walk to the beach was fine for the adults but a bit long for the kids. Thankfully the beach shuttle was available most of the time. The house was comfortable and functional. Nice furniture and decor. The matresses are on the firm side. The only problem we encountered was having one less bed than listed on the VRBO listing (no futon bed in 3rd floor queen room). I contacted the property manager and they offered an air mattress which we eneded up using. So be aware that this unit only sleeps 15 on beds, the 16th will be on an air mattress. The kitchen was fully functional for our group of 16, just a little crowded. Plenty of plates, cups, silverware, etc. Nice non-stick frying pans. I might even get some like them for my home. If you plan to cook a lot bring your own knives. We stayed for a few weeks, so we did some cleaning as the floors get very sandy. Broom and vacuum are provided. Having a washer/dryer in the house was very helpful!

- Great space for my family. One of the rooms was supposed to have a queen bed and sofa bed.


Oct 13, 2021

- Awesome location. Nice equipped house super close to pool, and beach area. Everyone walks to beach. Community is quite, and friendly. Coming across bridge it is located super close to stores and rout back to Alabama .

- everything was perfect, the house is incredible and without a doubt our next vacation will be in the same place, totally recommended.

- You will love the location. It is so close to the beach. The beach water was so relaxing. The water was so clear. My family loved the house and the experience. There is also a community pool. The water was great. The people were so nice. The pool is a good size for all the community. Thank you for a great stay.

Great location - Overall our stay here was amazing! Walk to the beach was not that bad. Wish the shower head in the master bedroom was better but other than that I don’t seem to find anything bad with this house.

Great beach trip - We met family at Skips Corner and we had a blast. I loved the pool and for my older kids walking to the beach wasn’t a big deal. I’m loved that they had a shuttle for the little kids and Grandma. The o lot thing negative I could say about this house is that it doesn’t have an outside shower. So it was hard to get all the sand off you you before you came in. The shower at the beach is super crowded and it’s hard to really get clean. Other than that it was fanatastic.
