Description

This contemporary beachfront home is indeed nestled upon what looks like a big white "snowdrift." However, these snowy dunes are composed of pure quartz crystal sand and the property sited upon them overlooks the jeweled waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The gorgeous gulf is the star of the show in this bright vacation home, and you can't get much closer to the water's edge than this! The sparkling seascape is showcased by almost an entire wall of glass doors in the open Great Room. A white cathedral ceiling soars above, which dramatically accentuates the space and a row of a dozen square atrium windows crowns the top. Four sets of double sliding glass doors below lead out to a wide beachfront balcony, where you may enjoy the spectacular views first hand and be invigorated by the soothing sounds of the surf. The balcony spans across the gulf side of Snowdrift over to a side deck with a table and chairs. Here you may sip favorite drinks, relax relishing the vivid views, and perhaps create a fun Surf n Turf meal with the provided gas grill. Your own sugary shoreline is just a few steps away, where you may luxuriate in the glowing emerald toned waters, lie out on the beach, or try to spot some dolphins frolicking out in the distance.

The expansive open Great Room provides gulf views throughout and is richly accented by honey-toned hardwood flooring with classic oriental rugs. An up to date kitchen that includes a convenient bar with raised seating dovetails into the beachside dining area that includes a white country dining table with six high backed tropically inspired straw woven chairs. The open living area has a cream-colored couch, love seat, and chair adorned with decorative pillows that face a wall-mounted TV for entertainment.

The three bedrooms are decorated with sea sculptures and have a charming Americana look that may be reminiscent of beach vacations enjoyed during the golden summers of yesteryear. The Master Suite with an en suite bath and king-sized bed has blonde hardwood furnishings with a fashionable Vintage Modern look. One Guest Bedroom has a black iron-framed queen-sized bed while another is a cheerful bunk room for kids with two twin bunks. They share a full hall bath that doubles as a convenient powder room.

This outstanding location is "off the beaten path" of  Emerald Coast Parkway in Miramar Beach, but in the heart of everything this area has to offer. Gulf-front restaurants with friendly laid back beach bars are minutes away along Scenic Gulf Drive. Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive special complimentary reduced rates there at Seascape for golf, tennis and watersport beach rentals. One of the largest discount designer centers, famously known as the Silver Sands Premium Outlets, with over 110 stores, provides bargain prices on world-class goods. A wide array of restaurants, rollicking bars, specialty shops, seasonal festivals with fireworks and free outdoor concerts are close by at the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf as well as upscale Grand Boulevard at Sandestin. An Ocean Reef offices is down the street, so come in, grab a drink out of our cooler, and schedule your next trip down.

Great House on the Beach
We had the best time staying here. House was perfect. Clean, convenient, and steps to the beach! Would definitely stay here again

Great house on the sand of Miramar
House has great views of the beach and of course easy access as you are directly on the beach. House is in a gated community and even though there is a public beach access right by the house, it's just for the surrounding community, not the general public.

Perfect in every way
From rental process (check in and check out) the process was easy. We even received reminders the evening before the 2 garbage pickups! The kitchen was well stocked and plenty of nice bath towels (unusual!!). Highly recommend this property and Ocean Reef (mgmt co.)

Such a treat to wake up with a beautiful view of the ocean! Perfect 3 night stay! Place was very clean and fully equipped with Everything you need. I emailed the property manager several times and the response was immediate. Well run property! Loved that they had 2 beach chairs included with the rental!

Lovely family beach stay!
We had a wonderful stay to celebrate my birthday with my spouse and children ages 10,8,5 and 2! The house was perfect amount of space for us and the proximity to the beach was the best!! The house has a lot of charm and you can see the love in some areas with more wear on the floors and cabinets. We would def rebook and recommend!

Sweet little property sitting right on Miramar Beach. Saw dolphins nearly every day and even a wedding. Furniture a bit uncomfortable but everything else was great.

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!

Does this rental allow pets? Thank you!
Roxie S - Posted: 01/07/2022

Answer:

We love our "fur babies" at Ocean Reef Resorts. Unfortunately, Snowdrift isn't pet-friendly. Good news, we do offer a vast selection of properties that are pet friendly. However, if you can board your pet - this is a great home for your vacation! 

What items are provided with the home?
Toni C - Posted: 02/12/2022

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, dish-washing 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!

What beach equipment is provided with the setup and are there extra chairs to use in the house?
Hailee C - Posted: 05/14/2022

Answer:

Snowdrift comes with complimentary beach service, including two chairs and one umbrella provided seasonally from March through October. If additional set-ups are needed, you can reserve them directly through the beach service provider. See you soon!

Is there a community pool available with Snowdrift?
John M - Posted: 06/12/2022

Answer:

Great job finding Snowdrift in Miramar Beach.  It does not have access to a pool - but it is right on the beach! If you'd like help finding similar properties that do include a pool - let us know!

Are we allowed to have a small wedding reception (10-15 people) at the house?
Terri V - Posted: 07/25/2022

Answer:

Congratulations on your wedding! Unfortunately, Snowdrift is not an event-friendly home so we are unable to authorize a reception. Please give us a call to discuss alternate options for your big day!
Is it a private beach?
Susan H - Posted: 03/07/2024

Answer:

Snowdrift is a Gulf-front home with private beach access provided, however, other homes in the Snowdrift Beach community have access to the neighboring boardwalk, so there is potential for some spillover. Be sure to bring the sunscreen!
