Hidden gem by the sea – walk to beach – emerald shores 4 gas giants

##########

Look here guys…. I reeeeaaaaalllly don’t wanna share my experience because the selfish side of me wants to keep this HIDDEN GEM all to myself for future use, BUT I’ll be nice and share… The home is incredible and the hosts are so thoughtful with all the amenities they offer. They even had a wagon and beach tools to take with you to the beach (umbrellas-2, boogie boards, sand buckets, chairs). The grill outside is easy to use and clean, and the private area outside, allows for an interactive experience while grilling. The home is really tucked away in a small culdesac, but it’s still right in the mix to where you can enjoy a book outside on the porch, or literally walk right across the street to the pool. The community is gated electricity for beginners, so it limits the access to cars coming through. The beach is right down the street just as advertised (maybe a 5-7 minute walk). The hosts were available to answer questions and offer suggestions MONTHS before our trip and responded quickly during our trip. So if you pass this place up, you’re foolish, but that is totally fine with me because that means more available dates for me; and I definitely plan my next trip to Destin to be right there at the HIDDEN GEM! AWESOME PLACE TO STAY!!!

My family and I stayed here for a week and had an amazing time. Maria was a considerate host who reached out to me by phone ahead of time just to make sure we were all set to stay at the house. When we arrived the house was spotless. The pictures made it look nice, but it was even nicer in person. It’s spacious with a large fully equipped kitchen that we cooked several e payment electricity bill up meals in. We also grilled out steaks and hamburgers on the outdoor grill. The beach is just 5-7 minutes away by foot. The house comes with a wagon that you can use to take your beach supplies with you. There are people driving golf carts around during the day to give you a ride if you want one. The neighborhood is beautifully maintained and felt safe even at night. There’s a large community pool right next to the house but we didn’t use it during our stay. The beach itself is beautiful with white sand and clear water. It was busy, but we never had an issue finding a good spot all week, and the water itself was never crowded. The private pavilion was particularly convenient. The Dollar General next door is in walking distance (4-5 z gas tecate telefono minutes away by foot), which makes it extremely convenient to pick up anything you might have forgotten or need to refresh. We made at least two trips. In short, we had no issues with our stay, the house was exactly as described, and I highly recommend this spot for a family beach vacation.”

We enjoyed our stay! The community was very quiet and the atmosphere was homey. The house is tucked into a corner of a cul-de-sac and is very shaded. We walked to the beach, however, there is a driver and a golf cart that circles and will pick you up if you want a ride (you will still walk some because the cart doesn’t go all the way to the beach). We walked to Captian Dave’s and Pompano Joes for dinner. We also walked to Dollar General for more sun screen. Pompano Joes electricity 2015 was over half a mile and Captain Dave’s and Dollar General were about a quarter mile. We brought our badminton set and tennis rackets from home to use on the tennis court that is available. This resulted in an epic family tournament! We didn’t realize that Maria had an outside storage unit with beach chairs and umbrellas until the last day. We had already gone to the store to purchase those items, so check the shed outside first! The private beach was very nice and clean with bathrooms and a snack area. Also located there was kayak and paddleboard rentals along with beach chair and umbrella rentals. The private beach allows personal umbrellas and tents but you need to place them behind the rental ones. This was not a problem and did not seem inconvenient. At the pavilion, there are steps (about 10) down to the beach with no ramp. The beach warning flag that was the closest was to the east. The ocean conditions flag (yellow for us) was very visible electricity transformer near house, however, the smaller one that was attached to it (placed under) was not very visible so please look closely to determine if there is another smaller flag under the larger one. Maria has posted on the refrigerator a flag guide and it came in handy during our stay. The home itself is nicely furnished and very comfortable. We had 5 adults total and we did not feel crowded as there was plenty of space for everyone. We did not use the pools that were available as it was just too easy to get to the beach. However, the pool located in the center of the community and across the cul-de-sac from the house was the largest and the busiest (busiest but not busy- no more than 15 people max were ever there). We did walk a lot (our choice) but other families did bring bikes or rented bikes locally and were using those to get around the community and the neighborhood by the beach so that is an option. There is a nice wide bicycle gas number/sidewalk trail along the beach that we used to get to the restaurants. Overall our vacation was great. We relaxed, we laughed, and we had a great time.
