Luxury Home - Large Private Beach - Game Room - Easy 3 minute walk to beach

NO problems from Hurricane Michael!  Panama City is an hour East of us and the most damage was to the East of Panama City.  Our beaches are fine as well.  

Summers Dreams, your luxurious vacation home, is located in a very well-kept, private gated community called Emerald Waters Village in Miramar Beach, FL.  

This beautiful family-oriented home is a three-story, 5000 square foot home - professionally designed to allow for 4 – 5 families to make wonderful vacation memories together – just as our family does.  Summer Dreams has perfectly lovely sleeping accommodations for up to 22 people.  24 guests maximum in our home.  

Feel free to call or text me (Gregg) at (314) 574-7672 day or night with any questions you may have.  I will generally respond within 1 - 4 hours with answers.  I want to make your vacation and rental experience as enjoyable as possible.  

When you enter the home you will be amazed at the spaciousness!  The well-appointed first floor holds a stunning foyer, crown moulding (which is located throughout the entire home), a huge living room with plenty of seating and a flat screen TV, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the patio and pool, dining room (one table holds 8 people and another table holds 6 people, with seating for 10 people on the patio), and the very well stocked kitchen.  Enjoy upscale amenities in the fully loaded kitchen: stainless steel appliances, granite countertops (2 stools at the counter), regular coffee pot as well as a Keurig, dishwasher, ice maker and all of the cooking utensils, dishes, glasses and silverware needed to cook a gourmet meal for your family and friends.  People have held their family’s Thanksgiving dinner in this spacious area.  

We have cable TV which also has music channels; DVD players in the first floor living room, the 2nd floor lounge area and the 3rd floor kids’ recreation room.

The interior designers did a fantastic job at selecting paint colors for each room.  Bright and cheery colors for the kids’ rooms with the bunk beds, calm and relaxing colors for the adult bedrooms.

These amenities are available for people with children:  high chair, two booster seats, regular size crib, pack and play and an umbrella stroller.

There is a half bath close to the entry way and a laundry room with extra-large washer and dryer, a sink, ironing board and iron.

Also on the 1st floor is a very spacious and lovely king master suite which has two walk-in closets (heated and cooled where a crib is located), a large flat screen TV and the master bathroom has a wonderfully large walk-in natural stone shower, a soaker tub and a two-bowl granite sink.  This is perfect if you have older family members who have trouble climbing steps.

The pool is one of the largest in the area which goes from 3’ to 5’ in depth with a little nook and ledge which you can sit on to watch the kids in the pool. Kids love the three jets that shoot out over the pool and colored pool lights for night. For a fee, the pool can be heated if necessary.  There are pool toys in a chest.  A separate patio area has a table and a large gas grill.  For safety, both patio gates by the pool latch automatically so little children cannot get to the pool area unattended.  There is a showerhead in the driveway to rinse off the sand when returning from the beach. 

There are also two community pools in the complex which are a short walk away from our home.  The south community pool is heated during spring weeks.  

Destin has the whitest and cleanest beaches in the world.  When you are ready to sink your toes in the sugary sand, there is a private beach entrance about a three-minute walk away for Emerald Waters Village visitors.  There is a 3-way stop at the corner where you cross the street to our private beach entrance which makes it safer to cross.  And the walk is easy for small children.  

The second floor has two lovely and tranquil queen bedrooms with private bath and flat screen TVs.  Bathrooms have the same walk-in natural stone showers and double sinks.  One of them also has a tub. 

The second beautiful master suite is also on this floor.  It is huge and painted a soothing blue.  There are two walk-in closets where there is a pack and play.  The bathroom is awesome with double sink, another gorgeous walk-in natural stone double showerhead and a soaker tub if you want to unwind after a very busy day sightseeing.  

There is a lounge which has been dubbed The Man Cave!  It overlooks the fantastic second floor balcony which is just over the pool.  The Man Cave has a flat screen with DVD player, leather sofa and chairs, a small refrigerator and little “bar” area for pouring those refreshing drinks after a hot day at the beach.

The third floor is what we have come to call the Kids’ Floor.  There are two darling rooms painted in bright colors; each have 2 bunk beds, dresser and closet for either kids or an adult.  There is a Jack and Jill bathroom between one of the bunk rooms and the queen bedroom.

The queen bedroom is a good size room and is decorated in greens and blues with flat screen TV, dresser and closet.  The person(s) in this room can use the hall bath for their private bath.

One of the favorite spots for kids/teens will become the recreation room on the 3rd floor.  It has a flat screen with DVD, pull-out couch,  two huge bean bags that hold a couple of kids, and a foosball table.  In the hallway is a shuffleboard table for competition games.  There is a table for four where they can play cards, color, whatever they want.

Christmas Vacation for a Large Family    Dec 24, 2017

Check in was easy and Gregg was extremely helpful and very quick to respond on any issue or question, we had throughout the stay. We had 23 people staying here, 10 adults and 13 kiddos! We never felt crowed, the two large dinning tables in the kitchen area were great. Each family had an area of the home to sleep and or retreat if they needed some space. We paid a little extra to have the pool heated and the kids had a blast. The beach is a very easy walk from the location as well, the kiddos didn’t even complain! Highly recommend and I don’t get anything extra for saying so either, encase you were wondering!


Thanksgiving 2017 - Great House!    Nov 17, 2017

Really nice place. Layout was perfect for our large family! Owners are incredible to deal with. No complaints!!


House is even better than it looks online    Oct 06, 2017

Great location, close to beach and pool is wonderful. There is so much room for everyone to spread out for some quiet time.


PERFECT    Aug 04, 2017

My family had a wonderful time together in this home. We only had one slight issue and Gregg was ready available to help. Hope we can do it again next year.


Excellent house - close to beach - we had 18 total    Jul 12, 2017

We had an amazing time! The house was perfect - a quick 3-4 min walk to the beach - easy for all ages. The kids loved the pool and the 2 separate bunk bed rooms - we had 9 kids with us. Thanks Gregg for letting us stay at your house!


Fantastic Wedding Stay    Jun 16, 2017

We had the pleasure of staying at Gregg's "Summer Dreams" for 2 weeks in June for our sons wedding @ Sandestin. There were between 2-22 family members and friends staying with us the entire time. Their vacation home is well conceived for large groups like we brought. The separate living room areas on each floor were perfect for games and discussion. The open floorplan downstairs was a perfect chance for everyone to catch up/plan the days events. There is a great first floor bedroom for a couple that might have a hard time on the three floors of stairs. We spent lots of time (around the storms) outside on patio and in pool. We used the grill for a big BBQ lunch and had ample parking for everyone the entire time. I could go on and on about the closets and bathrooms being so large and comfortable as well. The location to the beach was perfect! Just a quick walk around the building, across the street and you were there! The home is also pretty centrally located for quick trips to the store/restaurants etc as well. Harborwalk area is a bit of a drive, but not too bad. 2 weeks of laundry was done as well in the convenient and large washer/dryers on main floor. TV's were large and had plenty of cable channels for rare TV/movie nights on the big blue couch! Gregg was helpful and communicative via phone/email. Thanks for a wonderful stay!


My family enjoyed our time!!!!    May 17, 2017

What a fantastic home! Gregg was very kind and was available via phone whenever needed. Responses were very prompt. Home was just as pictured. Clean and comes with everything you would need. Would definitely recommend staying here


Riding the Tail of Spring Breakers    Mar 31, 2017

Two others and my family rented this house for our Spring Break. The house is beautiful and in a great location. The walk to the beach is simple, and the older kids loved the freedom of walking down the street to shop or grab ice-cream. The design of the house was perfect, we had 7 boys ages 7-16 with us. I am not joking when I say we never had one fight. The house, pool and beach provided plenty of entertainment and there was plenty of room to get away if the kids needed a break. I said we rode the tail of Spring Breakers because we came at the end of the spring break season. There were a few things that were not working as well as they would have typically. The owners, Gregg and Margaret were so fast to help us and so apologetic for things that were obviously not reported to them as not working. (For example, the ice machine had obviously been filled repeatedly with bag ice, therefore clogging the ice machine- easy fix, , the dishwasher wasn't working, but unless the cleaning service had to run it, no one would have known) One of the air conditioners wasn't working the first day we were there. Gregg had someone scheduled and there in less than 12 hours to fix it. Because of a huge storm one night, the heater on the pool went out. I called and literally within 10 minutes the pool guy showed up and had the heater working again. I cannot get stuff done at my own home that fast! All of us staying at the house appreciated the time and dedication the owners gave us to make our spring break a memorable one. My family and I loved this house so much, we have rented it again to stay at the end of July and are bringing my whole (extended) family. I see this home as a place we will always consider when we travel to this area.


Outstanding!!!!    Mar 10, 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at this great home. There were several bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom and shower, very close to beach and restaurants. Highly recommended. The owners provided very useful information when I requested it. Only downside was it was unseasonably cold during the week, but we still rented a pontoon and made it to Crab Island. What a blast!
