Experience Your Vacation Haven

Directly across the street from the beach!
If you’re looking to live in the lap of luxury on your next trip to Destin, Mermaid Motel is the place for you. Located in the Frangista Beach community in Miramar Beach, this over 2600 sq. ft. home offers 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and over 1,000 sq. ft. of balcony space.

Mermaid Motel was created for family gatherings and large friend groups looking to spend some time on the Gulf relaxing in style. This beautiful recently remodeled home is decorated with upscale décor and comfort in mind. There are multiple common areas to relax with family and friends, from the first floor paver pool patio, to the porches and balconies on every level. The first floor boasts laid back living and easy access from the pool with a living area and kitchenette. The second floor houses the main living area and full kitchen-which is all new for the chef in the group!

When it comes to sleeping arrangements, this large home sleeps 20 comfortably. Mermaid Motel offers 2 master suites, 3 guest bedrooms, and a sleeper sofa in one of the living areas for extra space. With 4.5 remodeled spa-like baths, everyone will be able to relax in style.

This gorgeous property also offers a private backyard pool with grill and patio seating. Cook up some lunch, let the kids hang in the pool, or have a few drinks under a beautiful sky adorned with palm trees. However, the best is yet to come! Grab the provided beach gear and walk across the street to your private beach access where you can dig your toes into the sugar-white sands of the Gulf and watch the emerald waves come crashing in.

When you’re ready to eat and you’re not looking to put in the work, this large home has you covered. Located on the Scenic 98 highway, you can get to any local food haunt in the area in minutes!

A private pool, luxury large home, and room for the entire family all just steps away from the beauty of the Gulf waters. What more could you need? If you’re looking to host a large reunion or wedding party and need more room, check out our other homes in close proximity. No matter your needs, My Vacation Haven has you covered!
