You can be snorkeling in the gorgeous gulf waters "under the sea" in no time when you stay in this unique vacation home since the beautiful beach is such a short distance away. In fact it's the best of all worlds since everything else you may need or want is just minutes away as well. Under the Sea features a convenient location off of Scenic Gulf Drive and places you near popular beachfront restaurants like The Crab Trap, Whale's Tail, Pompano Joe's and Captain Dave's. The nation's largest Discount Designer Outlet, known as Silver Sands, area grocery stores, and other great restaurants abound in Destin's Miramar Beach.
However, you may never want to venture very far away from this colorful, cheerful six-bedroom rental home that has room enough to accommodate up to 18 guests. This is a residence designed for entertainment and fun since besides the close proximity of the sugar-white beach, it also has a beautiful palm-studded courtyard with a private 8'x17' swimming pool. Everything in this home has been completely updated, including high definition Smart TVs in every room, and free wireless internet throughout. Furnishings are comfortable and upscale with a vivid décor.
The first floor encompasses three Guest Bedrooms, the Dining Room, and a contemporary open kitchen. Stainless steel appliances in the spacious kitchen enable the cooks to create a fun family seafood feast easily. A dark, gleaming solid surface countertop wraps around to include a bar with four raised seats for enjoying convivial visits with favorite tropical beverages and munchies. The separate dining area has a long white tabletop surrounded by navy blue chairs - providing a crisp, distinctive nautical ambiance. Three of the six bedrooms are located on the first floor, including one with a king-sized bed (and a 65" Flat Screen TV) and one with a queen bed. Each has access to a full bathroom, and the third bedroom has twin bunks with four colorful berths, which of course, provide perfect quarters for the kids. The bunk room also features a TV for each bed with easy HDMI hook-ups (don't forget game consoles). Also, it should be noted that all of these rooms have the easiest access to the gracious courtyard pool and patio.
Upstairs at Under the Sea are the three other Guest Suites, each of which are individually decorated in their own wonderfully unique styles. Each has access to their full bathroom, one of which doubles as a powder room. Breezy covered balconies look down onto the pool below. The main living area is also on the second floor, which has a 75-inch flat-screen Smart TV and plush comfortable furnishings convenient to the upstairs bedroom suites.
The third floor has another separate living area that has a Sleeper Sofa and arcade game making it the perfect quarter for teenagers. Under the Sea has room and entertainment for everyone making it the ideal place to stay for your family or friend reunion at the beach in Destin.

“Under the Sea” was perfect for our family of 10 adults and 3 children. The pool was convenient when the littles needed a nap and mom and dad couldn’t be at the beach plus it was great for a cooling dip after a day at the beach. The video game kept us occupied on rainy mornings and late nights. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed and 6 bedrooms/5 baths were perfect for the five couples and 3 kids. We were able to check-in a little early which was nice for several that got to town first. The property is just a few steps from the boardwalk that leads to the private beach (private for the neighborhood). Staff was easy to reach when necessary and the check-in/check-out process was handled smoothly through text messages and the property’s website.
Loved the space of the house for 5 families, the pool and location to the beach was stellar! Loved sitting in the pavilion and having a grill was a nice addition!
