Description

This stately four-story Old Florida styled vacation home with lavish furnishings has six bedrooms and can sleep 32 fortunate guests. This hospitable rental provides a perfect place for a stellar beach vacation with a premier location on the palm-lined portion of Scenic Gulf Drive in the prestigious, highly sought after residential enclave of Frangista Beach. This awesome Miramar Beach locale is just a short stroll away from the gated neighborhood beach access and the community pool (Don't worry, you have your own private pool too).

Five bedrooms in Once Upon A Tide feature private ensuite luxury baths, while the other two have easy access to full hall baths that double as convenient powder rooms. Triple levels of furnished columned verandas on two sides of this home provide entertaining space with views of the pool or tropical surroundings while enjoying favorite drinks with snacks. A fourth-floor Observation Tower with another veranda with table seating offers views of the glistening gulf located just a stone's throw away.

The first floor features two of the beautifully furnished Guest Bedrooms with king-sized beds and ensuite baths. Another lovely Guest Bedroom on this level has a queen-sized bed and access to a full hall bath. A Game Room off the swimming pool has a full wall featuring a built-in Wet Bar with a deep sink, a small refrigerator, an icemaker, and a wine cooler. It also has a game table, a large wall-mounted flatscreen TV, and a convenient half bath powder room nearby. A comfortably furnished veranda with a dining table overlooks the pool and an adjoining soaking tub that spills down into the water beside it. The paver tiled patio has plenty of chairs for lounging and a grill for fun poolside cookouts.

The bright, spacious open living area on the second floor opens out onto the front and rear-facing verandas with additional seating. This expansive room features stylish contemporary, comfortable furnishings with two seating areas. Four large white cubicle armchairs provide one gracious ensemble while two cream-colored love seats and a leather accent couch on the other side of the room face a big wall-mounted flatscreen TV for entertainment. A convenient powder room is off the living area. The state of the arts open kitchen has stainless steel appliances with a six-burner gas stove, double dishwashers, and a side by side refrigerator freezer. A bar island has seating for five where drinks and appetizers may be served. This level also has the Master Bedroom with a white tufted headboard, two blue armchairs, and an ensuite bath.

The third floor includes two additional comfortably furnished Guest Bedrooms with king-sized beds and ensuite baths - and a Bunk Room with access to a full hall bath. The Bunk Room is perfect for a kid's slumber party since it has four bunks with eight full-sized beds available to sleep 16! A bonus den with access to a veranda includes two queen-sized sleeper sofas, two velvet surfaced bean bag chairs, a wall-mounted flatscreen TV, and a PlayStation.

Fabulous house
We haven’t even checked out yet, and are already ready to book this house for next year! The house is gorgeous, I don’t even think the pictures do it justice. My entire party is in awe over how well it’s decorated for a rental house. There is plenty of room for everyone and the beds are super comfy. Also everyone we have interacted with from Ocean Reef has been more than welcoming and super nice! 10/10

Beautiful Home
We recently stayed in this property and the pictures are absolutely spot on. The house is well appointed and extremely inviting. We enjoyed the private pool and other amenities given our stay was during early March. Highly recommend this property for families looking for a private oasis close to the beach.
