8 Bedrooms / 7 Full & 3 Half Bathrooms / 26 Guests

Off the Hook is a massive beach house made up of intricate, intimate spaces. The bedrooms, there are 8 of them, give one the sense of a quaint beach cottage, as do the large kitchens and living spaces. High atop the already raised 3rd floor is a rooftop deck that looks out over most of Miramar Beach, the guest house, and the large pool. The palm-lined pool area is as perfect for entertaining as the pool is for cooling off. Taking a dip here is relaxing and centrally located between the main home and the guest house.
