Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Casa Grande

Enjoy the good life at Casa Grande, only a few steps to the beach and just across the street from the main pool. There's a great pool view from every porch. This fabulous 5 bedroom, 3-1/2 bath home sleeps 15 and is located in the gated community of Emerald Shores.

Emerald Shores is a family-oriented community with two pools, (one heated in winter), tennis court, basketball, and PRIVATE COMMUNITY BEACH PAVILION WITH RESTROOM FACILITIES! Our trolley runs to the beach daily in the summer months, but you can just walk the 500 feet to the beach easily. This is a great community for your vacation and even better for our snowbird friends long term in the winter- a great escape from the cold weather.

This comfortable home is located on the south end of Emerald Shores where you can walk to several fine restaurants. Enjoy Free WI-FI, local phone calls, cable flat-screen TV's in every room and a surround sound stereo system that has speakers throughout the entire home. We have all tile on the first floor and hardwood on the second floor. No allergies from carpet in this home.

There are 4 covered porches at this home where you can sit, relax and enjoy the Destin life. Grill out on the gas grill or cook inside in the fully equipped kitchen.

Emerald Shores is located centrally in Destin so you don't have to drive far to go anywhere. Just a couple of miles east to Sandestin where you can dine, play, or chill at the Village of Baytown Wharf. Enjoy shopping, eating and entertainment at nearby Destin Commons or play at the fun water park Big Kahunas. You may choose to spend a day at the Harbor, watching the fishing fleet come in with the catch of the day, take in one of the fine restaurants, or play at night at one of the many night clubs. Numerous golf courses are within a few miles.

About The Owner

We hope you enjoy your visit at Casa Grande! We spent Christmas 2013 here and have cherished the memories of our family enjoying each other in our house by the sea. We live just blocks away from the house and are available for any questions or information needed.

We Love happy customers and we will do all we can to be sure you visit us again and again!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We were a military family and later worked in the civilian sector. During our military career we traveled many places and we do not think there is not a better family vacation destination than here. We liked it so much that we built our retirement home here and just love the area.

What makes this house unique

There are parking spaces for three cars plus overflow parking across the street by the pool. If you bring a trailer it not allowed to be parked in the Emerald Shores complex therefore arrangements to park the trailer elsewhere will need to be made.

We had a Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

The home was amazing. Plenty of room for all of our families. We had a family reunion to celebrate my in-laws 40th anniversary, so we brought together four different families with kids. There was plenty of room to house all of us with out stepping on each other. The proximity to the pool and beach was wonderful. The house was fully stocked with dishes, appliances, pots and pans. Anything you could think of you needed to cook with, Al had it in this house. It was great. Al was very accommodating, even with last minute changes to our reservation. Thanks for allowing us to stay here. We will definitely be returning if our kids can handle the drive again!

Great house, great location, great family fun!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the Destin area. We had a great time at the house and the beach. The walk to the beach is not bad. Having access to the private entry was perfect!! The beach was clean, not too crowded, and beautiful. The house accommodated 11 of us and exceeded expectations.

Our only recommendation would be to account for travel time on the island. With 98 as the only main road, travel time was terrible. Make sure if you plan on leaving the development, you plan to leave early.

Al was fantastic and responded to anything we needed. If we travel to the area again, we would definitely book with him!!

More Than Expected - Keeps Getting Better

  • 5 of 5

This was of 5th trip to Destin & our 2nd stay at Casa Grande. Everything about this house is perfect. #1-The location. 2 minutes from the beach and a chauffeured golf cart to get you there even quicker. #2-The house itself. There were 16 of us with the youngest being 13 - we all fit, and had more than enough space, & could even find space for quiet time to relax and read. The house is spotless, the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possible need, and you just feel like you are home! #3-The owner! He is extremely responsive & very easy to work with. #4-Being so close to old hwy 98, the walking path, the restaurants, and THE BEACH! You are straight across from the entry to the private beach with an area to leave your wagon (which is provided), clean bathrooms, and plenty of hoses to clean the sand off at the end of the day. We are already looking forward to 2019, as we will be back in Destin and back at Casa Grande!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and close to the pool. The walk to the beach was very short. The private pavilion at the beach was so nice....Al helped us with any questions or needs. I recommend this house highly and will be back next year 😁

Kitchen damaged not in photos

  • 2 of 5

I rented for a family get together and was embarrassed by the damage not shown in photos. We called the owner upon arrival about the chipped and damaged cabinets and were told that there were plans to remodel in the fall, but that didn't make our visit any nicer. The Non-stick cookware was very scratched and damaged. It would be impossible to make healthy meals in these nasty pot and pans. I had no choice but to run out and buy a skillet and stainless steel spatula. There are also fees not listed in Terms and Conditions, Don't clean the BBQ grill- $35.00 fee ...Smoking on the premises $500. fee...lose the tv remote $50. fee. Two of the toilets were slow running. This vacation rental will accommodates a total of 15 but the parking is inadequate. I would not rent this vacation rental property again. I believe you should have a right to know what you are getting into before arrival.

Owner's Response: I truly regret that our vacation home did not meet your expectations. We strive to provide a welcoming home for families that want to have fun and enjoy our white sandy beaches. If you recall, we did speak on the phone but only about the cabinets that had small chips created by previous renters. Those kinds of repairs take more time than what is available in between guests of a solidly booked vacation home. That is why I have blocked out a month this fall to make those repairs. With respect to the cookware, as in the past, when guests have made note of needed items, I have provided these items the same day. (Note: The cookware was replaced.) Other guests have made requests, such as a large pot for seafood, two crockpots, two pack-n-plays, and highchairs. All which were provided at no extra cost. My point is that if you had mentioned your concerns about the cookware or other concerns, they would have been resolved the same day. With respect to the fees, the house is smoke free; however smoking is permitted outside on any of the four porches or the yard. I know you will agree that smoking inside the house can cause problems for the following guests. There are six TVs in the house each with a remote and the fee is simply to keep the cleaning staff from spending hours finding or replacing a remote. With limited time to make the house ready for the next guests it is important not to waste time looking for remotes and the same applies for the grill. You failed to note that you were not charged any additional fees nor has anyone been charged in the last five years. With respect to parking, I make it clear there are three parking spaces at the house with overflow parking at both pools and the tennis court. Again, I do regret that your stay was not what you expected. Most guests find the home very comfortable and exceed their expectations. This is proven by the number of repeat customers we have. However, I fully understand that you will spend your vacation time elsewhere and if I can be of assistance in finding another home for you and your family, I will gladly assist.
