Hidden in plain sight and offering the very best of coastal living, the Gulfside Cottages in Destin's Miramar Beach is a rare private enclave with easy beach access and absolutely no roads to cross. Sited just past the far eastern end of Scenic Gulf Drive and south of Emerald Coast Parkway, there simply is no better locale for a quintessential beach vacation.
Enter Gulfside Way, a palm-lined drive flanked by rows of towering palm trees and gently travel towards the shore. As you ease around the first bend and get a glimpse of the refreshing tropically landscaped community pool, you'll see Eden's Estate steps away, standing proudly and awaiting your arrival. You will be embraced by the gracious ambiance of this special home, which features a columned wraparound veranda out front and a covered balcony above. You will want to spend time here enjoying favorite tropical drinks while overlooking the palm trees rustling in the gentle gulf breeze. The beautiful beach is about a minute away; however, you may also enjoy taking a refreshing dip in the neighborhood swimming pool directly across the street. The spacious pool patio with convenient restroom facilities nearby is studded with towering palms that beckon you to enjoy pampered sunny relaxation. Additional outdoor amenities at the home include covered parking and a spot to grill up your own surf and turf feast!
Guests will enjoy updates and improvements throughout this beautiful property; virtually every corner of the house has been enhanced! The veranda at Eden's Estate leads into the open living, dining, and kitchen areas on the first floor, which also includes a convenient powder room. New premium, beach-washed hardwood flooring blends seamlessly with pale salmon-colored walls decorated with vibrant paintings of coastal-inspired scenery and tropical fish. This lovely space is newly completed with a blend of comfortable upscale coastal and fashionable Vintage Modern style furnishings. A regal blue couch (which can convert to a queen-sized sleeper sofa if desired), a love seat, and two matching high-backed chairs provide a plush seating ensemble around a blonde hardwood plank topped cocktail table. A 55" Smart Samsung Ultra High Def flat-screen TV with 4K DirecTV service with Blu-Ray rests on a light-colored hardwood credenza provides entertainment. A glass-topped rectangular table with a gleaming steel frame includes six sleek white high-backed chairs providing a chic Vintage Modern dining area near the open kitchen. Enjoy drinks and savory appetizers at the white quartz-topped bar with a waterfall edge and matching backsplash, around which four hardwood spindle-backed chairs sit. Bright white custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances give you everything needed to create a fun family feast. Exceptional amenities include true HD Smart TVs and Blu-Ray/DVDs in every room, upgraded electrical outlets with USB ports, whole home HD DVR, NFL Sunday Ticket, Regional Sports Package, adjustable LED lighting, and complimentary High Speed Wireless internet.
The newly decorated Master Bedroom Suite and two guest quarters are upstairs. The Master Bedroom features a charming cottage-style look with cream-colored furnishings, a king-sized bed, a floral patterned twin sleeper sofa for use if need be, a flat-screen smart HD TV, new lamps, and a full ensuite bath. It also has its own balcony providing a perfect place to spend time on special romantic evenings. One Guest Bedroom includes contemporary hardwood furnishings with a queen-sized bed, while the other serves as a Kid's Room with crisp white bunks that have a twin and queen-sized bed. Both bedrooms have their own smart flat-screen HDTVs and share a full hall bath.
Although Eden's Estate is set in its own "Eden" paradise, it is surprisingly close to everything Miramar Beach has to offer. Grocery stores, wine shops, and fantastic shopping venues are nearby, including the famous Silver Sands Premium Outlets, which offers fantastic bargains on world-class goods. Special Ocean Reef Resorts guest discounts are provided close by at the Seascape Resort for championship golf, tennis, or beach recreation rentals. Family amusements, wonderful restaurants, friendly bars, shopping adventures, outdoor concerts, fun festivals, and exciting seasonal firework displays are minutes away at the enchanting Village of Baytowne, along with swank Grand Boulevard at Sandestin.
