Your family will have a spectacular beach vacation in Destin, Florida, when staying at REAL SANDY. This professionally decorated, Coastal Chic themed, single-story vacation home is located 2 blocks from our private beach and pavilion, a 2 minute 45 second stroll from the front door! Your beach house is only three houses away from the main community pool. REAL SANDY is located within the EMERALD SHORES subdivision, a gated beach ownership community. EMERALD SHORES is the only residential community in Destin that has a private beach pavilion with restrooms, outdoor showers, beach service and it's very own Cabana Cafe' & Bar! This eliminates having to go back to the home for potty breaks, to rinse off the kids or to just get a bite to eat with a cold beverage. It's all available at the Emerald Shores beach pavilion!

REAL SANDY features two King Master bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms! This home has a comfortable 1700 square feet of living area and has been recently renovated. This home offers; a gourmet kitchen with granite counters, custom cabinets, stainless appliances, wood blinds, designer touches and outdoor dining spaces. Home is fully equipped with all kitchen wares and utensils for casual or upscale dining. French doors in the front and rear invite in the fresh coastal breezes. It also as an extra full-sized fridge in the laundry area.

Besides the close proximity to the beach and main pool, there are many custom finishing touches in REAL SANDY. The open and integrated kitchen/living room/dining room floor plan makes REAL SANDY a perfect set-up for two families with kids.

There is even an enclosed porch area for morning coffee accessible from the living room and the bonus room!

REAL SANDY has wireless dual band high-speed internet access (wireless 2.4 or 5ghz). Why settle for an entire week of that cramped condo feeling when you could be stretching out and enjoying all of the pleasures and domestic comforts of being in your own home while on vacation at the beach! An array of amenities is at your doorstep. Several Gulf-Front Seafood Restaurants are even within walking distance of the home.

EMERALD SHORES is a perfect community for your family vacation. It features 95 resort style homes, in a gated setting.

Wonderful Week at Real Sandy    Apr 30, 2022

review star

We had a great time at Real Sandy. Very well appointed, comfortable and spacious. There were only three of us, so we had ample room. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything that you need and the gas grill was very helpful for the nights we didn't to go out to eat. Very short walk to the beach and Kenny D's or Capt Dave's on the Gulf. The pavilion was a wonderful thing to be able to have a bathroom, refreshments and a place to get out of the sun for a minute. The chair and umbrella is a must, makes life so much easier. We really appreciated the wagon and extra chairs. If you get the chance, Christian at the pavilion was a blast to get to know, plus he will move your seats front row. This was our first time to Miramar Beach/Destin area and we really enjoyed the laid back vibe of the community and the beach. Thanks for having us

Fantastic Beach Vacation    Jun 20, 2020

review star

"Real Sandy" provided our families a wonderful beach vacation getaway! The house accommodated our 7 very well. It's location in this charming community was great - about a 3 minute walk to the beach and even shorter walk to the pool (didn't even need the beach tram!) Beach pavilion with restrooms and refreshments was nice! The house was beautifully decorated and kitchen was spacious. We enjoyed sitting underneath the fan on the screened porch, which never got direct sun and was very relaxing. Thank you Jay and Betty for sharing your lovely home with us!

Cute Beach House    Aug 31, 2019

review star

Our family had a great time in Real Sandy! We have stayed in several of Jay & Betty's properties and this one is a winner. It's a cute and clean beach house with easy access to the Emerald Shores beach and their pavilion. It's located on Jade Cove, so close the south entrance of the community. The kids loved the location too. We will be back next year!

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

This is a new property for us, so we were thankful we had some availability and could host you as a repeat guest! Thanks for the feedback and we appreciate your repeat business! Happy Vacationing, Jay & Betty @ GULF911
