Description

WEEKLY DISCOUNT!! POOL! WALK TO BEACH! 2 CAR GARAGE! CLOSE TO SHOPPING & DINING!

Some have called it a "Hidden Gem", a "Relaxing Retreat", "Amazing", "Our Go-To", "Great Location"!!!
We are lucky to call it home but you decide for yourself!

Welcome to La Dolce Vita! We are located just 2 blocks from the white, sugar sand beach of the gorgeous emerald coast! A convenient 5 minute walk to a gated beach access or 2 minute car ride to park your car or golf cart!

This newly remodeled, gorgeous two story home is brand new to the rental market and has its own 2 car garage, upscale furnishings, crisp linens, comfortable beds and a covered front porch to relax on, unless you prefer the back patio or upstairs balcony! We do not have cable, but watch all your favorite shows on one of our 4 Smart TV's through our high speed internet access & your media accounts!


On the first floor is the large master bedroom & ensuite with king size luxurious bedding, TV, double vanity, shower & garden tub. The fully appointed kitchen has everything you will need!

The living room has a comfortable sofa with chaise, 2 swivel chairs, shiplap, mantel, electric fireplace, 65" TV & is open to the beautiful dining area that can seat 8.

Upstairs is bedroom #2 with a queen bed, luxury linens, TV & french doors that lead to a sun balcony. Bedroom #3 has 2 double beds, luxury linens & a TV. It's a great room for the kiddos but can also accommodate adults! Spacious, shared bathroom with double vanity & shower/tub gives you plenty of room to get ready for a night out!

After a day at the beach, step into the fenced in private backyard and rinse away all the sand from bodies, coolers and toys at the outside shower with hot water!

We are located in Miramar Palms which is a small, quiet neighborhood with just 10 homes, luscious landscaping, private, palm tree lined cul-de-sac and just steps away from the sparkling pool. We are within walking distance to several restaurants and shopping...
Pompano Joe's, Whales Tale, Pascalli Kitchen, Kenny D's, Royal Palm & Beach Bar, Emerald Coast Winery, Alvins, Electric Beach Golf Cart Rental, Captain Dave's, Bad Ass Coffee and more!

10/10 Recommend!!    May 27, 2022

review star

The house was beautiful and clean with everything we could ask for. The location of the house was great! It has private access to a beach 5 minutes away from the house and great restaurants around the area. Cathy was a great host and very helpful which made our stay very enjoyable! Cathy also provided us with recommendations of restaurants and activities that we could do around the area. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will definitely be coming back!

Love, The Gonzalez Family

This is a great house with lots of comforts of home and convenient to all the fun!    May 23, 2022

review star

Your home is comfortable and inviting. It is located convieniently to the beach, restaurants, pool, shopping, and yet quietly tucked away from the noise. The outside shower with HOT WATER is perfect! We only got 30 mins at the beach (bad weather) but it was double red flags so we were in the sand. It was great to wash it all off outside!  You were great to work with leading up to the stay, as well. Thank you!

Y'alls house is so pretty & very nice! We had so much fun! But our overall favorite thing was the wagon because we didn't have to carry hardly anything to the beach haha! Another favorite was the boardwalk! We had a blast but the highlight of it was the live music! We also had so much fun at the beach too!!

We loved the location (convienent, yet tucked away and private). Well furnished with your every need in mind! We found the kitchen complete, plenty of fresh linens and little extras (blow dryer and a wagon for the beach). Our favorite memory was meeting our host & his wife, Cathy. We enjoyed a great meal and good conversation! We can't wait to come back! Perfect timing for some much neede R & R!

Perfect vacation!    Apr 19, 2022

review star

We just returned from our stay at la Dulce Vita and it was perfect. The house is beautiful and just a short 5 min walk to the beach. It’s located on a quiet street lined in Palm Trees. My kids loved the hot tub and outdoor shower. The house is perfect with everything you need…. Loved relaxing in front the big screen TV with the fireplace while we were winding down at night. The bedrooms were perfect. We only made breakfast, as we took advantage of many great restaurants close to the house, but if you prefer to make meals there is everything you would need. Having the pool right across from us made life easy with kids. We’ll definitely be back!! Next time for a full week.

Quick Spring Break Trip    Apr 14, 2022

review star

I found the listing for this gorgeous home just a week before our trip. We got so lucky! The neighborhood the house is located in is so perfect! It's very close to the beach, but in the quietest little area with well kept homes, beautiful landscaping, and a nice pool. We tend to go to Destin and the 30A beaches on our visits to the area, so we felt the house was centrally located for that. Cathy was an attentive host and communicated with us before the visit and throughout our stay. Everything was comfortable and clean. The decorating made us feel like we were right at home. We thoroughly enjoyed playing cards on the lovely back patio at night. The rooftop deck was an added bonus that we were not expecting! I can't say enough good things about this home. Don't hesitate, rent this amazing property!

Thank you for all your hospitality! We truly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to visit again!    Apr 06, 2022

review star

This was my first stay at an Airbnb and I was extremely apprehensive on what to expect. However, my entire experience was impeccable! The booking process was very smooth. Cathy (the Owner) is highly personable and very responsive. Leading up to my family's stay, she made sure that were fully informed on what to expect upon arrival. The check in process was seamless. The house was in excellent condition and looks far better in person. The walk to the beach only took about 5 - 10 mins. I highly advise bringing your own beach chairs as they can be quite closely to rent during a multiple day visit to the beach (out of Cathy's control and rented via 3rd party). The location is convenient to a plethora of restaurants and nearby activities. The checkout instructions are simple and easy to follow. I highly recommend this property and can't wait for my next visit!

We enjoyed everything about our stay!    Mar 25, 2022

We loved riding around on the golf cart we rented from down the street-our kids were obsessed! Dinner at Fat Clemenzas was our favorite & also the Donut Hole was great!

The house is on such a nice & quiet street, just a short walk from the beach. Appreciated having access to the private beach gate. Beautiful house, beautifully decorated & stocked with everything we needed. plenty of space for our family of 6! Appreciate the garage & outdoor area with shower. We felt so welcome & comfortable here it was like staying at a friends house! Thank you for making our trip to Miramar great, definitely won't be our last!

We really enjoyed our stay. The home was the perfect location to just about everything and the amenities made the stay feel like home. The kids really got a kick out of the hot tub and the outdoor shower (it's the little things for them :)) Would love to return and make La Dolce Vita our Go-To!

Excellent beach house and hosts in the perfect location!    Mar 11, 2022

review star



My family and I had a wonderful stay at La Dolce Vita. Cathy and Gene were great hosts and we truly enjoyed their home. They made sure to check in on us from time to time and were very responsive if we needed to address anything regarding the property. The home is equipped with all the amenities you would need and more. My favorite place in the home was the kitchen and backyard. I had everything I needed to prepare home cooked meals, BBQ, and relax in the hot tub. The location is perfect; it’s accurately described as a short walk to the beach. CVS is close by as well as gift shops, restaurants, and more. There’s even a golf cart rental company within walking distance of the home. Our week long stay was very much needed and their home made our vacation even better. I’d stay again anytime I’m in Destin and will recommend friends and family to check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

First time vacation to Destin and this place was beautiful and perfect in every way. Quiet and convenient location. Exactly what we needed to relax and enjoy. We had everything we needed including the most comfortable bedding. The host has graciously given us their brand so we can purchase. We will be returning. Wonderful host!! We highly recommend.
