Area Attractions:

Grand Boulevard Town Center is a pedestrian-friendly, shopping and dining complex just off Emerald Coast Parkway, convenient to both Sandestin and Miramar Beach. For the high-end shopper, the center offers a number of boutiques, and dining options.

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 house met all our needs. It was immaculate and the check-in process was a breeze. The location definitely sets itself apart from the other Airbnb's because it is literarily walking distance to the beach which we did every time. It also so close to all the shops and stores so it was very convenient to get everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying here.

- This was our first time to Destin and had a wonderful time! It’s an easy 1/2 mile walk to the beach but if you want an umbrella or chairs it is an extra charge. Weather wasn’t the best the middle of March but we had a couple good beach days! The property is very clean and was perfect for our family!

Wonderful!! - This was our first time in the Destin area and we loved it. We are already looking to book again in the near future. The house was clean, in a great location and everyone was friendly.

- The house was very clean when we got there. All the decoration was really beautiful and made us feel the true beach-house experience. All the available amenities made our stay so much better. I would definitely come back to this place for future vacations. Oh and the access to a private beach without the need to drive there was perfect!!!
