Spacious 4 bedroom, 3 bath in Destin's lone beachfront community, sleeps 12

Welcome to Good Tides, your private beach retreat in the exclusive (and only) gated beachfront neighborhood in all of beautiful Destin! Family owned, ran, and operated, this 3 level, 4 bedroom, 3 full bathroom, and 2 half bathroom getaway with over 2,200 square feet of “beachy luxury” adds up to one perfectly spacious vacation getaway!

Good Tides has all the space and luxury for up to 12 people to relax together, comfortably, and 3 parking spaces in the driveway. You are simply a short, 3 minute walk to your private sandy-white beach and the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico (never cross Scenic Highway 98, nor any busy street). Once on the sand, beach service makes things easy - you don’t even have to bring your own chairs or umbrella! You are also less than a 1 minute walk to your five-star resort with lounging, heated pool, and hot tub. Whether you’re a beach enthusiast or planning your next family getaway, Good Tides is the perfect choice for your next vacation.

Relaxing inside Good Tides is easy. Your home offers updates throughout, including new living room and dining room furniture, new flat screen TVs, and new vanities & countertops in all bathrooms! You can enjoy an open air dinner on the balcony, just off the kitchen, by grilling your "catch of the day" on our new 5-burner grill. Or, sit and relax with a book and cocktail on your upstairs balcony, 1 floor up, in the master bedroom. High speed internet, cable, and paid premium channels will ensure you and all of your guests are endlessly entertained.

The first floor features two guest bedrooms with queen sized beds, ceiling fans, and flat screen TVs. In addition to these guest bedrooms, the first floor offers one full bathroom, one half bathroom, a quiet patio, and a high efficiency washer and dryer - to ensure your beach towels are ready for your next trip out!

Next, take the stairs one level up to the main living area. No detail has been overlooked here! The fully equipped kitchen has everything you’ll need to feel right at home. With loads of countertop and cabinet space, cookware, dishware, and all major appliances, you’ll be able to create and serve your favorite family meals. The separate dining area seats eight at the table, comfortably, with additional seating for two at the custom breakfast bar. A full balcony off the kitchen houses a 5 burner grill for cooking out, plus room for 4 to enjoy dinner and drinks under Florida’s famous palm trees. The living room is the perfect place to gather and relax together. It features a cozy gas fireplace and brand new 75” flat screen TV. There is a newly updated half bath nearby, plus private wet bar; equipped with its very own wine chiller and mini fridge.

On the third level, you’ll find the oversized master retreat plus final guest bedroom. The master includes a flat screen TV, king size bed, oversized private balcony, and spa-like bathroom - with walk-in shower, double sinks, and soaking tub. The third-floor guest bedroom also has a flat screen TV and can accommodate up to six in comfort with two full beds and a set of twin bunk beds. A full bath and small private balcony complete the upstairs.

We would love to share our beach home with you and your family. We pride ourselves on making sure you have the time of your lives at Good Tides, a family loved and owned venture.

Destin Area Information:

Destin is well known as the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village largely because of its roots as a top fishing destination and quick access to the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Destin boasts the largest charter fishing fleet in the state of Florida. But, there is much more to Destin than charter fishing. Destin has evolved over the years to be a top beach vacation destination. Featuring sugar white sand beaches and emerald colored water, it is an absolutely beautiful area. The town itself offers many upscale shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities. Much of the development of the area has been done with luxury lifestyles in mind. Destin also has one of the busiest private airports in the country. There are tons of things to do in Destin, water parks, water sports rentals, parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, power boating, sailing, fishing, tennis, shopping, or just plain relaxing on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Good Tides was perfect! In a gated community that is safe and quiet, the house was perfect for our vacation. Just steps from the community pool and beautiful ocean. The owners were great to work with and were very quick to respond to any questions or inquiries. Would return without hestitation.
