Now we’ve barely mentioned our beach! The Emerald Coast is on the western panhandle of Florida that has the famed “Sugar Beach,” so called because of the nearly pure white super fine silica sand which has the consistency of sugar. These super refined crumbs of the Appalachian Mountains that have been washed down from the mountains for thousands of years now cover the beaches of the Emerald Coast and are around 97% pure quartz. This sand is unique in that it is so soft that it will squeak under your feet. Little wonder that it is considered one of the finest beaches in the world! Western Florida boasts over 300 sunny days per year. Water temps are high 80's in the summer and low 70's to mid 60’s in winter.

 

What to do besides enjoy our wonderful beach...Should you wish to explore what the local area has to offer, you'll find an abundance of choices.  Sidewalks line scenic 98 for walking, running or bike riding.  We are a short drive to the Silver Sands mall to the West, or luxury shopping at Destin Commons to the East.  Kenny D's, The Crab Trap, and Pompano Joe's are all within a short drive.  We encourage you to leave menus of your favorite restaurants when you come.

Vacation and Wedding Trip    Jul 24, 2023

review star

We stayed at this property for my niece's destination wedding and it was perfect. We arrived before check-in and with all the madness that goes along with a destination wedding, Kathleen was gracious enough to allow us to get into the property early after a long road trip. The property was as listed and even better in person. I can't recommend it enough.

Fabulous week full of family fun activities. Room was excellent and exactly as described. View from the balcony was awesome. We rented a golf cart and visited the restaurant and bar downstairs. Pool was very well maintained.

Ideal location!    Jun 07, 2023

review star



My family enjoyed our stay here very much! The easy walk to the beach included two separate shower stations for hosing off. The pool was a delightful end to a day at the beach. The view from the balcony was lovely! Inside we were grateful for the excellent climate control, access to our favorite TV programs, and plenty of bath towels for everyone. All appliances worked well and we had enough soap and paper products for a 2 - 3 night stay for 6 of us. Kathy was great to work with - absolutely no complaints! Thank you for letting us stay!
