Description

A popular hit song recently reminded us to all "Be happy," and that certainly applies to this newly constructed whimsically named 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom (4 full baths, 2 half baths) vacation rental. Up to 15 fortunate guests now have the opportunity to stay here at this "happy" hospitable home that is just a short distance away from the white sugar beach and gorgeous jewel-toned waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is located in Emerald Waters Village in Destin's Miramar Beach.

A gracious columned porch with an upper balcony spans the width of B-Happy and the beautifully landscaped setting is enchanting. Private deeded beach access is just a short four to five-minute stroll away near Pompano Joe's, which is a favorite Miramar Beach restaurant that features tropical drinks and savory seafood. Besides the beautiful beach, you may also take a refreshing dip out back in the seasonally heated private saltwater pool, or two other neighborhood pools nearby.

This wonderful abode is a perfect place for different groups of families or friends since it has a separate one bedroom Guest House with a full bath. The other bedrooms are in the main house, and three of them are like Master Bedrooms since they include a luxury bath en-suite with direct access to a balcony or patio. A bonus area serves as a great Bunk Room for kids and offers an attached half bath. This room is right off one of the main bedrooms, which can provide individual space for a family with kids and cousins.

The open living area is comfortably furnished with a seating ensemble around a large TV and has doors leading out to the pool patio. A state of the art kitchen on the other side of this room features stainless steel appliances and gleaming granite countertops with an island that seats five for favorite drinks or snacks. An adjacent dining table conveniently seats eight more. There is also plenty of space for entertaining outdoors around the 14' x 20' pool that sits beside the house and Guest House. An expansive handsome charcoal and gray toned paver patio encompasses 500 square feet next to a large covered open porch. A gas grill and large outdoor cafe styled dining table allows you to enjoy drinks and have fun dining poolside with everyone.

This fantastic Miramar Beach location is a short distance from popular gulf front restaurants and friendly beach bars that dot the coast here along Scenic Gulf Drive. Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive special reduced rates nearby at Seascape for championship golf and tennis. World class discount shopping is also close by at the famed Silver Sands Premium Outlets, which is one of the nation's largest discount designer stores for bargains on fashionable clothing and goods. Grocery Stores, wine outlets, a wide array of additional restaurants, lively bars, seasonal festivals, free concerts and abundant amusements are minutes away at Sandestin's charming Village of Baytowne Wharf as well as Grand Boulevard.

PERFECT Vacation Spot
The house was just a nice as the pictures shown on website. Having the private pool made all the difference in our vacation. It was very nice and even lit up at night. The kitchen had every appliance, utensil and dish imaginable! The beach was only a 2-3 block walk with its own private entrance. Our family hopes to return here one day.

Great Family Fun!
This property is in a great location with a short walk to the beach. The property manager Ocean Reef was very quick to satisfy an issue that we experienced. There is plenty of room for your family to spread out and be able to be comfortable. Overall It was a week of great memories and we did enjoy the stay.

Was very Happy at the B-Happy House
My family and I just rented this house for a week of Spring break. We loved the location, the house and the pool. It’s beautifully appointed and well maintained. We had a couple of rainy days so the Ping Pong table was really great to have. We would stay here again.

FAQs

We welcome all of your questions! Most property-specific details can be answered in the AMENITIES tab, for example, "Is beach service included?", "Is there a community pool?" and "How far is the beach?". Additional answers may be found in our Rental Policies.

Still have unanswered questions? We invite you to ask below. Our vacation specialists look forward to providing you with a detailed response to help you find the best place by the beach!

Where is the closest beach access?
Bridget W - Posted: 01/26/2022

Answer:

The gated beach access for Emerald Waters Village is located at the end of S Holiday Rd. This access is directly across from Alvin's Island, which is a great spot to purchase your beach gear before digging your toes in the sand! 

Is additional parking provided across the street? Is the carriage house included with the rental?
Gary R - Posted: 03/07/2022

Answer:

B-Happy includes parking for four vehicles in the driveway. The parking spaces across the street are for guests utilizing the community pool only. If additional parking is needed, you can find other options for overnight parking here. The rental includes both the main house and guest house. See you soon!

Is the bunk room closed off from the rest of the house?
Maura R - Posted: 03/08/2022

Answer:

There are two twin bunks located on the second-floor landing of the main house. This is a great spot for the kids! It is not considered a bedroom as no doors are closing it off from other portions of the home, but it still acts as a great bonus sleeping quarters.

How deep is the saltwater pool?
Regina G - Posted: 04/02/2022

Answer:

The private saltwater pool at B-Happy is the perfect place to relax on a hot summer day. The pool is 4.5' deep, 14' x 20' in diameter, and quite refreshing!

Where do the four vehicle park?
Jeana M - Posted: 04/01/2023

Answer:

The brick paver driveway in front of the home is large enough for four standard-sized vehicles. There is also first come, first serve overflow parking across from both community pools.

Is the coffee maker regular or k-cup?
Jeana L - Posted: 04/19/2023

Answer:

Keurig coffee makers are provided in all Ocean Reef properties to help get your beach day started. Don't forget your favorite K-Cups!

Does the house have beach chairs and umbrellas?
Debbie R - Posted: 06/19/2023

Answer:

Beach chairs and umbrellas are not provided complimentary, but are most certainly available for rent. Once you have secured your reservation, we will provide you with the beach services contact information. You can reserve chairs and umbrellas over the phone, or directly on the sand!

Can you leave a golf cart at the beach access or is it walk up only?
Stephanie S - Posted: 01/09/2024

Answer:

We are so excited you want to stay with us at B-Happy! There are several public beaches that offer first come first serve parking along Scenic Gulf Drive. If you use the one closest to the home, at the end of S. Holiday Road you wouldn't have parking available. This is a private walk through beach access.

Are linens/towels included?
Teri B - Posted: 01/22/2024

Answer:

We provide linens and sheets for the beds, bath towels, and washcloths. You will want to bring your own beach towels, as we do not provide them. Our properties are furnished with enough disposable goods to get you started; this includes trash bags, paper towels, toilet tissue, dishwashing detergent, and bar soap. Our kitchens feature the basic necessities, such as a k-cup coffee maker, toaster, blender, silverware, and dishes. You may also want to pack hair dryers, additional disposable goods, and specialty kitchen items such as spices, aluminum foil, sandwich bags, etc.

Here is a helpful video to ensure that you are fully equipped for the beach!
