About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-12)

Wow, this is the place you've been looking for!! You really dont find this level of space and privacy in a beach neighborhood, but with our extra large lot and an undeveloped lot next door, it has a very secluded feel. Close to the beach and all the attractions around Destin! Beachy decor, Private pool, spa/hottub, wetbar in adjacent gazebo. Cabana with toilet and shower next to the pool. Big lot, lots of space, multiple decks, custom privacy fence, --Perfect for your group. If you are planning a multi-family vacation, you will not be on top of each other here. You will love the peace and privacy and space this location offers.

This beautiful home is close to everything in Destin. Just 300 yards to the Gulf (4 minute walk) and located on a very quiet residential street.

With about 3300SF, and a lot that is 60% bigger than typical Crystal Beach lots, you will not feel cramped in with your party. Master bedroom has king bed private bath with jetted tub. Custom 6 foot privacy fence surrounding back yard provides unparalled peace and privacy. (Adjacent lot is undeveloped and natural) Five decks give you lots of outdoor space. After a bizarre freezae in Jan 2014 we had to replace all of our Palm Trees, which were just planted in Jan 2015, which adorn a spacious open grass area. Room for the kids or adults to throw frisbees, footballs, etc. Outside cabana bathroom.

The property may be rented without the apartment in non high season times. The apartment has a full kitchen, new cabinets with granite tops, and new appliances. Its got a private bedroom and a full living room. Its awesome down there.

Custom privacy fence completly encloses the large yard. Enjoy the cool Gulf breezes sitting on the shaded deck while watching your kids play in the pool. Within walking distance to the new Destin Commons shopping / dining outdoor mall. Also, a church neaby has an excellent new playground for the little ones.

Withiin walking distance is the Recently enlarged Destin Commons Outdoor Mall, Outback, Chili's, Cracker Barrel, Barnes & Noble bookstore and it's Starbucks Coffee Shop, a Marble Slab Creamery ice cream shop, a bowling lane with a large arcade, and more. High speed internet included. NOTE: NO COLLEGE OR HIGH SCHOOL SPRING BREAK GROUPS. Family Rental only.

Sunny beachy colored decor throughout. The kitchen has tile countertops and new appliances. Plenty of room for your party without being cramped. Enjoy the seabreaze on the deck. All bedrooms have their own full bath and cable TV. A beautiful home at a more than fair price.

About Rob Gresham

I love Destin and can't wait to retire here and fish and golf my life away. Our property is awesome. Unparalled privacy and space. Custom fence encloses the back yard surrounded by 12 palm trees. Talk about a place to chill.

Rob Gresham purchased this house in 2003

Why Rob Gresham chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Very short walk to the beach- about 3 - 4 minutes. Very peaceful street and our property is 60% bigger than most lots.

What makes this house unique

You wont feel cramped in with your group. Grandparents stay in the lower apartment often. The perfect extended family vacation.

Nice spacious and private home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here and totally loved the house and the location. The lot is huge, the pool is of a good size and there are lots of decks so that our party did not feel cramped in together. The privacy is extraordinary for a beach area, with the adjacent lot still natural which adds to the privacy, along with the 6 foot fence aroiund the back yard. Our dog was fee to roam and enjoyed the stay as much as we did. The street is quiet and not busy but just a short walk to the two beach accesses. The owner was atttentive and has a nice gentleman that oversees the property locally. We plan to return sometime in the near future.

Wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property over spring break for our extended family and had a wonderful time. It was a wonderful property with a beautiful pool and hot tub. It comes with very complete kitchen appliances to wonderful beach chairs provided for use. We had a great time and would rent again in the future. We had a great time at this home.

This property is the ultimate vacation experience! The property is within short walking distance from the beach, shopping and dining. The comfort and privacy of this property is as good as it gets. In my opinion if this property doesn't meet or exceed all of your vacation expectations you probably need to just stay home because no vacation property will satisfy you. The private pool and Jacuzzi are wonderful.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed our spring break vacation week here and this property was simply the perfect fit for every need or want we had. The house had any and all for any need someone may have, from spacious, to kitchen, pool activities and beach activities. The house itself was well appointed and decor was appealing. There was not one thing we had to go out and get for our stay or any beach fun. The owners are super accommodating and was a pleasure to deal with. The pool and spa were very inviting and enjoyed on a daily basis. The owner provides a beach dolly with chairs and sand toys making it a very easy little 1/2 bock or so walk to the the beach. It was an easy walk and even for me as I have partial physical disabilities. We are already making plans for our next stay here in September. We have def found our special spot for our future Destin travels.

Fantastic home with beautiful backyard and great location

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this place justice! Far exceeded our expectations, gorgeous backyard with plenty of rooms for our dogs to play and very private lot. The location is perfect - walking distance to beach, food, & shopping. Private pool and hot tub were great! We definitely plan to return in the future. Owners were extremely accommodating!
