5BR, Gorgeous Private Pool And Seclusion W/Free Golf Cart. Guest House.

The BEST home and deal in Destin! 60+ 5 star reviews. NOTHING ELSE COMPARES!!! 

Welcome to Casa Bahari™. An eclectic mix of Swahili and Spanish, this home’s name means Home by the Ocean. As many homes in this area are built specifically for rental, such as small bedrooms and discount furniture, Casa Bahari is our personal home that is furnished as though we live there full time. Casa Bahari is an elegantly appointed home that is spacious and quite comfortable. If "packing them in" is not your motto during vacation, this Is Your Home. This home is about 700 square foot larger than most of the other homes nearby for rental.

Casa Bahari™ is located in Destiny West, one of Destin’s most exclusive communities and within walking distance of the beaches. This lushly landscaped and meticulously maintained gated community offers a large community pool, tennis courts, and a workout facility, all within walking distance of Destin’s sugar white sand beaches. For visitors looking for a luxurious residence just off the beaten path, Casa Bahari is the perfect choice.

Located towards the back of the community, this home gives residents a high degree of privacy. Trees and lush foliage with no neighbor to the east make this home an ideal place for a peaceful retreat. The property borders a wild bird sanctuary.

The outdoor experience here is quite phenomenal. Integrated spa spillover and pool. Shallow sun shelf that is 16 inches deep along with a deep end of roughly 6ft. The pool is newly refinished with glass tile and a beautiful pebble style finish. There is a seating shelf all around the pool for entertaining and sitting around relaxing along with a beautiful LED multicolor light show at night in the pool and spa. The area over and around the pool has string lights with Edison old style filament bulbs in them. It truly is a beautiful experience at night, I am sure you won't forget it. On the back deck within 20 feet of the pool is an outdoor kitchen with an integral bar/sink with running hot water and refrigerator. There is a separate grill next to the outdoor kitchen.

Immediately upon entering, you’ll be struck by the European inspired elegance and décor. The spacious, gourmet kitchen is equipped with restaurant and professional grade appliances, a large, formal dining area, and access to the private and secluded pool and adjoining Spa tub. All of the entertainment area on the lower level offers views of the sanctuary and the beautiful pool area along with a fireplace below the TV in the living room to make a perfect ending to a day in the sun. Immediately off the kitchen, the laundry room is discreetly hidden, keeping your sandy towels contained in one convenient spot. A small first floor den and game room provides plenty of seating for the kids to get some gaming in on the large TV. The daybed provides additional sleeping area that makes this room a great additional bedroom for young ones.

The spacious living room opens to a wraparound veranda, which has plenty of room for a grill and a table. With a view of the pool, the veranda is a perfect spot for alfresco dining, your morning coffee, or afternoon refreshment as the sunrise and sunset views can be appreciated since you have a south facing view.

The second floor houses three well-appointed guest bedrooms, which share two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has additional hidden storage in an alcove. The master suite rivals some small apartments! Complete with a separate sitting room, this large bedroom has a wraparound porch, which provides a view of the pool, the community’s freshwater lakes, and the nature preserve. You also have the best seats in the theater as the room has a 65" Sony Cinema 4K display with a Dolby 5.2 surround system and subs built in under the bed. The master suite bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, a separate spa shower that is quite large and walk-in, and two sinks with plenty of counter space. There are also generous his and her closets. All three rooms also have their own private built-ins from within the closet, with plenty of room to tuck away and organize belongings, great for extended stays.

This property features a charming carriage house, which is keyed separately from the main entrance. This airy loft space has a small kitchenette, a cozy, full bathroom, and top-of-the-line, luxury platform sleeper sofa that sleeps as comfortable as any bed. There is also two Full sized bunk beds built-in that have their own drawers. This room also hosts a 72" TV making it a great spot for a fun family night, spacious second master suite or additional bedroom. This room has large picture windows that face to the south and overlook the whole pool area and bird sanctuary.

Sometimes it's the little things that make the difference in the quality and comfort of a guest's stay, and no detail has been spared in this home. The robust 50 MB high-speed Internet can accommodate even the most demanding Internet needs. All of the TV's in the home are HD and have DVR receivers as well as access to the Genie HD DVR service. The Direct Premiere full package cable service will ensure you'll never miss your favorite TV show, movie or game. There's even unlimited long distance on the home phone just in case you need it. The Living Room has Apple TV.

The entire home is outfitted with a Control4 security system. This system offers guests the safety and sanctuary of full home security and exterior cams along with thermostat controls, lighting controls, TV, Audio (both indoor and outdoor) full control. This is a fully automated home that helps you throughout the night with lighting assistance while you enter dark rooms and you will never arrive to a dark house as you come home from the evening after a great night out. The home has indoor in ceiling audio system with Airplay and the outside veranda, pool area and balcony offer 9 outdoor speakers with Airplay also. We can custom tailor your Air-conditioning needs, as you may like, some restrictions apply. Would you like it to be 72 when you go to bed and wake to 71?

A six-passenger golf cart with canopy and three bicycles are located at the home for your convenience, handy for trips to the Clubhouse or beach.

A clubhouse within walking distance offers a large members only pool along with tennis and basketball courts.

While Casa Bahari gives visitors an unprecedented level of luxurious privacy, you’ll never feel left out of the action, as this home is just a short drive away from many of Destin’s most popular restaurants, shopping, and attractions.

An additional pool heat fee is required for use of the spa as it is an integral portion of the pool. Any pool heat activation will need to be arranged prior to the guest arrival.

Book It Now    Aug 15, 2020

Everything about this house was perfect for our family. We rebooked for our next vacation before leaving. It's the little extras that make this house stand out from the rest. The golf cart, the seclusion, the extra fridge space, the music system on the patio....I could go on and on. The owner, Chanse, is the most responsive rental owner I have ever dealt with. If you are on the fence, go ahead and book it. I promise, you will not be disappointed!

Jennifer G from Ohio

Can you say AMAZING?!?!?! This place is great! Close to the beach (the golf cart is a lifesaver), awesome pool and private! This place is a little piece of heaven! Great place if you have kids! There is the carriage house which the kids loved! You cannot go wrong with this place! You are near shopping/outlets, grocery store, restaurants, etc!!! This was a vacation that we will never forget!

William B. from Houston, Texas

The home was just as described. Secluded in the back of the community. We absolutely loved the home and location. Andy and his team are attentive and very quick to respond with any questions. The golf cart addition was great. Made getting to and from the beach very easy. What stood out to me the most was the soft fresh smelling towels. Like anyone else that vacations for a week knows it’s a lot of hard work preparing and loading everything up. And when you get there, it’s time for unloading and setting everything up. By the time you’re done you’re drenched and exhausted. So if you’re like me after you’re settled in, you just want a long shower and relaxation as vacation has officially kicked off. Well normally hotels and other places I’ve stayed don’t have the quality towels that you’ll find here. I know it’s small detail but to me that small detail did it for me. The smell and feel of that towel made me feel at home. I know where I’m staying on my next stay and I would totally recommend anyone to stay at Casa Bahari. Memories to last a life time were made on this trip. Thanks Andy

This house is awesome and secluded. I definitely recommend staying here    Jun 23, 2018

Martin A.Indianapolis, INWe had a wonderful stay at Casa Bahari. From the kitchen to the pool and master suite, the house did not disappoint. The carriage house is perfect if you have three or four teens in your group. The addition of the golf cart was great. If you're looking for one of the nicest places to stay, you've found it. Andy is on top of it when you need anything.

Great for families!    Jun 10, 2018

We loved this beautiful house and would go back in a heart beat! There was plenty of room for all of us (7 adults and 4 children, 3 of which are under 2 years old). The pool was perfect for our family, especially the shallow end for our small children. The location is great and is a quick golf cart ride to the beach, which was incredibly handy. Andy was so helpful and very quick to get back to us about any questions we had. We would recommend this house over and over!

Amazing home    May 26, 2018

Ed H. from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee

This home was our best ever. It is an absolutely amazing home! Everything is exactly as the pictures depict. The write up/description is spot on. There were 12 of us staying covering 3 generations. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There's plenty of privacy for everyone yet spacious gathering places in the kitchen, living room, and pool for togetherness. The grands loved the pool as there is a shallow sun shelf on one end and a deeper end at the other. The son in laws loved the outdoor kitchen and grills. There is only one other house on the street which you can't see offering an incredible amount of privacy from neighbors. Andy is great to work with and communicates quickly. We can't wait to go back.

The house and pool were amazing. The hot tub saved our trip due to rain from “Alberto”. We had a couple of issues that couldn’t be helped and the owner was very accommodating. Nori the property manager was always quick to come take care of everything! Overall a great place the stay!

Perfect family vacation at an amazing house!    Mar 31, 2018

Jennifer S. - Casa Bahari is spectacular! A private, secluded, luxury resort is how we would describe. We rented over spring break and this was our kids first vacation to the beach. The house was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. We very quickly became spoiled with the private pool and incredible outdoor space, not to mention the luxurious interior. We also have to mention the 6-person golf cart - fantastic! We would not go to Destin without access to a golf cart. We will definitely return to Casa Barhari - thank you Andy!
