Your family will have a great beach vacation when staying at SOUTH SEAS, our Destin Florida Home Rental. The home is a South Pacific themed three-story luxury vacation home located approximately 125 yards from the beach pavilion (2 - 3 minute walk) and is only two houses away from the main neighborhood pool 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 Pavilion Bar & Grill! This eliminates having to go back to the home for potty breaks, or 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! 

The home has a spacious 3000 square feet with which to spoil yourself and overflows with luxurious upgrades including granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, 12 ft. ceilings, textured walls, tile and hardwood floors, accent lighting, wood blinds, two Jacuzzi tubs, two home theater systems, two 55" flat screens, a game room with granite wet bar, refrigerator and microwave on the third floor and more.

SOUTH SEAS, our Destin Florida Home Rental, features three luxurious Master Suites, all with king beds, private baths, and an expansive 180 degree view of the area from the 3rd floor balcony. The 4th bedroom is a bunk bed extravaganza (2 bunk twins/fulls sleeps 6 kids). This is a great set-up for three families with the 3rd floor game room providing a private TV and play area for the kids or it can be used as a 5th bedroom utilizing the queen futon sleeper. Two roll-away single beds are also kept in the home.

Balconies, porches, decks and patios give you ample room to lounge around in a tropical paradise. French doors open up to soak in the tropical Gulf breezes. The home is located on the first beach street cul-de-sac in the neighborhood and is a very short walk to the beach, the large heated community pool, onsite tennis or restaurants. SOUTH SEAS has free WiFi high-speed internet access (wireless 802.11g or b). 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.

SOUTH SEAS is located in EMERALD SHORES, a perfect place for your family vacation. It features 95 resort style homes, in a gated setting. There are 2 pools, one is seasonally heated, tennis courts, basketball, shuffle board, grass volleyball, tether ball, sidewalks, a beach Pavilion, a tram service (which is seasonal) plus much more. There is no better location and your family will love it!

Great for Familiess    Sep 22, 2018

This house was perfect for our family. Our son, his wife, and their 4 children joined us for this vacation and this home was perfect. We each had our private area when we wanted quiet time and a large family room, dinning, kitchen area for our together time. House had everything we needed and the kitchen was well supplied with pots, pans, dishes, flatware, glasses, and so much more. The location was GREAT! The beach was a very short walk and beautiful. The community pool was clean and just a few steps away. Great house for large family vacations.

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Thank you for staying with us in the South Seas home and we look forward to your return on your next beach vacation. Thank you so much, Jay & Betty


Everything We Needed!    Jun 16, 2018

This house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 5 children. Everything we needed was included; the furnishings were comfortable; checking in and out easy; and the owners were responsive to any questions we had.

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Thank you for the review and it was my pleasure to meet you and your sons. We look forward to seeing your crew again at one of our properties! Thanks, Jay & Betty

Beach Trip with the Entire Family!    Mar 24, 2018

This home was just as described! Great Location inside the Community. Close to Beach access and close to the Pool. In-between Both Outlet Malls so really convenient for shopping! Having 3 Kings Beds is AWESOME! Very well stocked!! We will come back for sure! Cherie Burris - Charlotte, NC

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

2nd year at Miramar Beach - great rental experience    Feb 17, 2018

You can't go wrong with this property. Convenient location, clean, good set up with master and large bath on main plus 1/2 bath so others don't have to run up and down steps. TV in every room. Very comfortable. Carts to carry chairs to beach. Super nice and safe community. Highly recommend.

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Thank you for staying with us in the South Seas home. Glad you enjoyed the Emerald Shores community and our private beach. We look forward to your return. All of our properties in Emerald Shores can be viewed and booked at Happy Vacationing, Jay & Betty

Great Home Setup    Dec 23, 2017

We loved the setup of this home. We had three families and each family had privacy on the three levels of the home. The owners are great to work with, Destin is beautiful, the pool was warm and very clean. This is an awesome house, we were very pleased. 

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Thank you so much for staying with us over the Christmas Holiday's. The weather was unusually warm but that was great news for beach goers. Glad you enjoyed the heated pool and we will continue to make upgrades and additions to the South Seas home over the off-season. Make sure to follow us on Facebook for deals and things going on in Destin at Happy Vacationing, Jay & Betty

Exactly as Described    Jun 03, 2017

We really enjoyed our stay at South seas. The house is beautifully decorated and fit all our needs. The emerald shores community is so nice and just a short walk to beach! Property was exactly as described and owners were easy to communicate with. We definitely recommend this area and beach house!

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Glad your family had a great time in Destin at our South Seas home. We have other properties in Emerald Shores if have other groups that want to come with you on your Destin Beach Vacation! Just visit and book your vacation home online. Thanks, Jay & Betty


Best house ever    Oct 08, 2016

It was the little things that made the experience even better than we anticipated...Jay called us to let us know the unit was ready earlier than expected, and we found baby gates (which we had forgotten to bring for our 1 year old). Jay recommended dining places (all good, I might add!). The beach was a close walk and the pavilion with restrooms for Emerald Shores guests was a blessing for our toddler. It was perfect for our extended family of 6 adults and 2 children. Exceptional.

Emerson B

South Seas Home in Emerald Shores    Sep 24, 2016

Great place to stay. The house was very clean. A 2 minute walk to the beach with private beach access. The house is modern and very up to date. The house is really big and has room for a big family. We will be back again!!

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Appreciate the review and we look forward to your return visit at one of our properties listed on Thanks, Jay & Betty

Perfect Girls getaway    Jun 30, 2016

Stayed here April 2015 with some girlfriends. Weather was awful but we still had a great time. House is a few minute walk to the beach. Lots of shopping, restaurants close by. Well appointed and beautiful furnishings. Plan on coming back with my family. Would definitely rent here again.

Jay and Betty Coppic's reply:

Thank you for staying with us and we will definitely try and dial in some of the great weather and water that we noted for on your next visit. Since your visit last year, we have had many new openings such as Lulu's (Jimmy Buffet's sister), World of Beer, and a Whole Foods, all in our neck of the woods.

Cindy & Ed S.

Just Perfect!    Mar 26, 2016

South Seas had everything! The kitchen was the best stocked of any rental house in which we have ever stayed. The dishes and glassware were extra nice; with more flatware than you could ever need. The bed was extremely comfortable; the master bathroom and closet were spacious. The house was clean, well maintained, the furniture was comfortable, the decor beautiful, and the location of Emerald Shores is central to everything. Booking was easy and convenient. Everything about the house was perfect, which is why we will be back next year! It's just a shame there were only two of us to enjoy that big, lovely house!


Beautiful, spacious home with everything you could need    Nov 30, 2015

Huge home with lots of room for everyone. Could have brought another family with us and still had plenty of space. Furnishings are new/modern and everything is super-clean. Kitchen iss fully stocked and there is a nice breakfast bar in addition to a large dining table. Two separate living spaces were a plus when the kids wanted to do their own thing. All the beds are VERY comfortable and master bathroom has a fabulous jacuzzi tub and walk-in closet. Very short walk to beach, pool and tennis/basketball courts. Owner was great to work with also! Our only critique is that the air conditioning cannot be set any lower than 72 degrees. We're used to sleeping in cooler temperatures. Fans helped, but would have liked it a bit cooler. If we find ourselves vacationing in Destin again, we'll definitely stay here!
