This hospitable vacation home has received extensive renovations, which include new furnishings, fine appointments, updated appliances, and creature comforts. The six bedrooms graciously accommodate 18 happy beachgoers - and all in beds. It has a great location in the heart of Destin's Miramar Beach, placing guests' minutes away from the Gulf Pines private neighborhood beach access and an abundant array of popular restaurants with friendly beach bars on Scenic Gulf Drive. Beach Therapy also comes with a lovely lagoon-shaped pool situated in an expansive lushly landscaped tropical setting studded with palm trees. It was made for sparkling entertainment since, besides the large patio for sunning, there is also a pool pavilion at one end with a built-in bar and wraparound raised seating on three sides.
The open living area incorporates the dining and kitchen portions of this home with multiple views of the pool. Beach washed hardwood tile flooring, white shiplap walls, and tropical accents provide a chic coastal look. Double sets of sliding glass doors lead out to a wide pool porch with comfortable furnishings for leisurely relaxation with favorite drinks in hand. One end of the living area has a beige wraparound couch, a patterned accent ottoman, and a brown leather lounge chair that faces a large wall-mounted flatscreen TV. Part of the big living area includes an area for entertainment with rich looking bar table flanked by two raised seats and a fun Shuffleboard Gaming Table. A state of the art kitchen at the other end of this very spacious room has a bright white island bar with stool seating to enjoy drinks and appetizers. The kitchen features new upscale brushed stainless steel appliances and plenty of creamy cabinetry for all your treats. A charming white cottage styled dining table with eight seats is situated in the middle of this room near one set of sliding glass doors leading out to the pool porch. This wide porch serves as a screened-in veranda overlooking the pool with richly woven comfortable furnishings to enjoy the views.
The comfortably furnished Master Bedroom has a king-sized bed with a plush cream-colored tufted headboard, two bedside tables with charming vintage lamps, sliding glass door access to the pool porch, and a full en suite bath. Three other nicely appointed Guest Bedrooms also come with king-sized beds. One of these King rooms is it's own attached apartment, which has a private bathroom and sliding glass doors providing views and direct access to the lovely pool patio. Another Guest Bedroom has a cheerful ambiance with bright windows, nautical accouterments, cottage styled furnishings, and two queen-sized beds. All of these guest quarters come with their own flatscreen TV for nighttime viewing pleasure. There is also a room that would be perfect for the kids to have a fun "slumber party" since it has three twin bunks.
This Miramar Beach location places you not only close to popular gulf front restaurants but also near championship golf, tennis, and water recreation rentals at Seascape where Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive preferred rates. Grocery stores, wine shops, and one of the nation's largest discount designer centers, famously known as the Silver Sands Premium Outlets are nearby. Family amusements, seasonal festivals, outdoor concerts, specialty shops, lively bars, and a wide array of restaurants are minutes away at the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf as well as swank Grand Boulevard in Sandestin.

We had a great time at Beach Therapy! Plenty of space for 4 families with infants and toddlers. Here are some pros and cons from our stay: Pros: -golf cart, heated pool, location, neighborhood, private beach access, backyard, plenty of bathrooms for each family, customer service We got the pool heated and it was like a bath! Felt amazing. The included golf cart was my favorite feature of this property. Gave us the flexibility to come and go to the beach without having to walk or lug all of our stuff in cars. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood. We went on morning walks and maybe 1 car would drive by during that time. We could walk to get ice cream, donuts, pizza, breakfast or to Alvin’s island to get things we needed. Only a 5 minute drive away from the grocery/ liquor store. We had a couple maintenance issues that we came across when we got there. I emailed ocean reef properties and they promptly arrived the following morning to fix the issues. Very pleased with their quick responses! Cons: -mother in law suite, some bedrooms were a little toasty, limited space in some rooms if you want to put a pack n play in there, sun room doesn’t lock, limited kitchen items The mother in law suite was kind of useless as a bedroom.. it was very hot in there. It has its own key to get in and out. The only access is from outside or the sunroom. But the sliding glass door from the sunroom to inside the house is the only back door that locks.. so at night you would be locked out of the house, unless you kept it unlocked at all times. But the door from the sunroom to the pool doesn’t lock, actually it didn’t even latch very well at all. Also, the washer and dryer is located in the mother in law suite so you would have to go in someone’s bedroom to do laundry. Luckily, we didn’t have the need to use the mother in law suite as a bedroom. So we were able to wash clothes freely and use it as an extra bathroom closer to the pool. Some of the bedrooms got pretty warm at night, but luckily the house had lots of box fans to help. A couple of the bedrooms were a little tight if you were wanting to set up a pack n play, but others have big walk in closets so that was nice. Also, it would be nice if the kitchen could have some extra items. There were no pot holders, only one spatula, stuff like that. Overall we had a great time and we would definitely stay here again!!

Does this property offer any pool or beach toys or supplies?
It is always possible that the owner has supplied these items or previous guests have left them at the property; however, due to the high volume of visitors, things can inevitably be broken, misplaced, or lost. Since we cannot guarantee these items will be present, it is always safest to pack your own or rent some when you arrive.
