Ocean Reef Resorts has a hospitable thirty year plus tradition of providing outstanding vacation rentals to our Emerald Coast visitors and guests. We strive to be the best and are selective when we hand-pick private rental properties to be included in our inventory of beach homes or luxurious condominiums. Perhaps this commitment to excellence is why we receive high praise from our patrons and have been fulfilling vacation rental needs to generations of families. In 2014 we are excited to be adding even more fabulous new properties to our rental program. Here are three brand new Destin vacation rentals that you may consider for your next family beach vacation or reunion.
If you are looking for a modern, contemporary beach home that could be featured in Architectural Digest or Southern Living Magazine then take a look at The White House on Holiday Isle. The privileged locale of this prestigious neighborhood is in the heart of everything that Destin has to offer since it is minutes away from the charter fishing fleet at the marina, Harborwalk Village and fun excursions to Crab Island. This gorgeous home has received much acclaim for its bold architectural design and was completed by the award winning local firm, Mc Whorter Architects in Santa Rosa Beach. The principal of this team is Carey McWhorter who is renowned for creating homes that emphasize the integrity of a design that carefully unites the landscape with both simplicity and sophistication into an integrated whole. The White House on Holiday Isle is an outstanding example of his work and a true modern masterpiece. This Destin vacation home looks like the kind of setting that you might have seen in movies and in fact some of the guests who have stayed here are celebrity types. The shimmering white exteriors blend seamlessly into the background of sparkling crystal white beach that borders the glistening jewel toned waters of the gulf. The indoor/outdoor design is also incorporated within since literal walls of floor to ceiling windows take full advantage of this spectacular scenery. The gorgeous gulf is the star of this showplace and vivid vistas allow you to view it throughout this spectacular home. The main Great Room is bright and open with comfortable contemporary furnishings that are decidedly chic with their upscale artful design. This White House is so modern that it is reminiscent of that iconic show “The Jetsons” and looks like the kind of place they would reside in if they ever went to the beach! Every modern amenity is available which includes wide flat screen TVs and a state of the art kitchen with a wide stainless steel, side by side refrigerator. The open dining area can seat up to ten under a multiple clear glass globed chandelier that suspends down from above. A spiral staircase leads to the upstairs quarters. There is a Wet Bar with another side by side refrigerator, an ice maker and living area on the second floor as well which makes this a great home for entertaining or separate lounging. The glass walls gracefully lead out onto sunny open decks and balconies that are accessible from the Great Room and the beachfront bedrooms. This home has a total of six bedrooms and six full baths with the ability to sleep up to eighteen guests and all in beds. Kids will love the Bunk Room that has eight colorful berths and their own bath. Vibrant colors are featured in every room that provides a brightened cheerful beach ambiance throughout. Downstairs is a covered swimming pool with plenty of chairs for leisurely lounging. This looks out onto the sugar white sand dunes and emerald hued gulf. You, your family and friends will feel like lucky celebrities yourselves by spending your beach vacation in this awesome home.
Second from Destin, in nearby Miramar Beach we have brand new aptly named home called Puesta Del Sol which is Spanish for “sunset.” You may enjoy many sensational sunsets here since it is steps away from the beach right off Scenic Gulf Drive. It offers enough room for up to fourteen guests since there are four spacious bedrooms, extra bunk beds and sleeper sofas. This abode is located in a newly developed luxury villa complex known as La Terraza. The upscale neighborhood is part of the Miramar Beach Villas community and shares the private sparkling fresh water pool nearby that is festooned with palm trees and has an expansive deck for sunning. The exteriors of the villa are completed in a charming classic Mediterranean style but the interiors are distinctively 21st century. Furnishings are both comfortable and fashionable since it was only recently completed. The open living and dining areas are in a sunny room with high ceilings and contemporary décor. A flat screen TV has two large comfortable couches that face it and both of them double as queen sized Sleeper Sofas. A long sleek gleaming granite counter has four leather bar seats that face an open state of the art kitchen with stainless steel appliances. This provides a great place for entertaining while enjoying tasty seafood appetizers. The separate dining area has a big rectangular hardwood table under a modern stylish chandelier that seats eight on high ladder backed chairs. There is a bright guest room with twin beds on this first floor level that has access to a convenient hall bath that also serves as a Powder Room. Upstairs you will find three more bedrooms and each one is like a suite unto itself since they all have private luxury bathrooms. The spacious sumptuous Master Suite has a big king sized bed, an elegant decorative double tray ceiling and warm chocolate toned hardwood floors. One of the upstairs guest bedrooms also has a comfortable king sized bed while the other has two double bunk beds with four berths for the kids. Each room also has its own new flat screen TV for night time entertainment. You will feel like you are living in the lap of luxury during your beach vacation in this brand new Destin home but don’t forget, that sensational sunset is just steps away!
And now, coming soon we have a brand new home that is in the final stages of construction called Breeze on Inn which is also located just east of Destin in marvelous Miramar Beach right off Scenic Gulf Drive. You, your family and friends may be the first to “breeze on” into this massive villa that has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms. This three story beach home’s exteriors are being completed in a romantic old world Mediterranean architectural style with two arch columned balconies that will overlook the jewel toned gulf. A wide matching columned covered porch at ground level will look upon your own private pool that faces the sparkling white beach that is easily accessible from the neighborhood boardwalk that is steps away. The interiors of this beautiful home are anything but “old world” since it will have brand new furnishings and all modern amenities. In fact this villa has been deliberately designed as a private beach rental in order to take advantage of everything one would want in a special beach house. There will be six spacious bedrooms for adults and many will be suites with private bathrooms. A large separate bedroom has been specifically designed for the “Kid’s Quarters” and will feature three sets of twin bunks with slumber party berths for six. The main living area is expansive which leads out onto one of the beach-side balconies that extends from one side of the house to the other. This will provide the perfect place for entertainment since it has been designed for friend and family fun. This vacation home will comfortably accommodate up to twenty-one fortunate guests. The first floor comprises the state of the art gourmet kitchen, a family room, a Master Suite with a king sized bed along with another twin sleeper and private luxury bathroom as well as a Guest Bedroom with a queen sized bed that has access to a full hall bathroom. This level will lead out to the beach side swimming pool. The second floor will have another family room, a Master Suite with a private bathroom, the Kid’s Quarters bedroom, a Guest Bedroom with a queen sized bed and a full Hall Bath. The entire third floor will have two Master Bedroom Suites with king sized beds and private baths. Each suite has access to balconies that face the gulf where you will have heavenly views of the downstairs pool below and the luminescent waters of the gulf that extend as far as you can see into the southern horizon. Keep a look out for this one! We will be posting a release date as soon as it becomes available for its first guests.
Both Puesta Del Sol and Breeze On Inn share fantastic locations that places you near popular beach side restaurants, bars, musical entertainment, a new movie theater with stadium seating and world class shopping excursions. The family friendly, charming New Orleans French Quarter inspired Village of Baytowne Wharf and the Sandestin Town Center on Grand Boulevard are just minutes away. A championship golf and a pro tennis center are also nearby at Seascape where Ocean Reef Resort guests receive special discounts. Speaking of discounts, Miramar Beach also has a claim to fame as having the largest Designer Outlet in the nation known as Silver Sands Premium Outlets where millions of shoppers frequent each year for substantial discounts on name brand clothing and household goods.
