The original Amalfi Coast in Italy is known for its scenic beauty so it is no wonder that the Amalfi Coast Resort, on the Emerald Coast, shares this distinction. In this case however, the awesome views include the blue-green Gulf waters and the white, quartz crystal sands of Miramar Beach! Ocean Reef is pleased to be able to offer a number of private vacation rental accommodations at this popular beach destination.
The Amalfi Coast Resort is located across from a towering, sand dune on Scenic Gulf Drive which also marks one of the highest points of elevation on the Gulf of Mexico. The panoramic vista views, from this fortunate locale, extend from Sandestin towards the east to the towers of Destin towards the west. An old fashioned gazebo takes optimum advantage of these views with a stairway that extends down to the beach below. This provides the perfect spot for a relaxing view of the coastal scenery as well as experiencing some really spectacular sunsets which occur over the Gulf from late fall until early spring. Full moons over the water during summer provide a romantic, silver-splattered, magical view. The entire resort sits on over eight and one half beautifully landscaped acres with over 120 yards beach frontage. The complex includes two large, adjacent swimming pools in front, one of which is heated seasonally. The expansive pool decks with swaying palm trees are nestled next to a landscaped lagoon with Gulf views. This is accentuated by a long bridge which takes you with ease, to the gazebo's beach access point.
Spacious suites, from one to three bedrooms, can sleep up to ten guests. Each one comes with a fully equipped kitchen, open dining-living room areas with nine foot ceilings, full size washer/dryers, Cable TV, high speed internet access, phones, as well as large breezy balconies which provide gorgeous views of the Gulf, the lagoon and the swimming pools below. Select condos also include a hallway alcove that includes bunk beds for the kids. Amalfi Coast 327 even comes with a private poolside cabana complete with a wet bar! There is a conference center on site for large gatherings, lighted tennis courts for comfortable night play and BBQ grills for a friends and family cookout.
As with all our Ocean Reef Resort rentals, free or discounted amenities abound! Within walking distance there are 20% discounts on eighteen holes of golf at the Seascape Golf Club, with 10% off of their already reduced twilight rates. This Joe Lee designed, 71 par golf, is bordered by lush pine forests as well as a myriad of tranquil lagoons with “water, water everywhere”. Fifteen of the eighteen fairways have landscaped, picturesque water features, many of which have breath taking views of the shimmering Gulf beyond! (If you're in the mood for a golfing day trip adventure, don't forget about the free rounds of golf we provide our guests at the Blue Water Bay Golf Club in Niceville.) Guest discounts are also available at La Dolce Vita Water Sports for kayaks, paddle boards, wave runners, and a para-sail. In addition, you can turn on some beach tunes and go surfing at the Ride On Surf School. Experienced, certified instructors will enable you to ride the waves with 50% off your second lesson. If you decide to stay in one evening to relax, don't forget about our wonderful free movie rentals as well.
Due to the coastal, centralized location in Miramar Beach, there are many venues available to suit your desires. Beach side restaurants, located along Scenic Gulf Drive, include Rick's Crab Trap, The Whale's Tail, Pompano Joe's and Captain Dave's. Silver Sands, the largest designer outlet in the nation, as well as Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard in Sandestin, are literally minutes away for the pleasure of shopping or entertainment.
