About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

We offer a beautiful 3-bedroom vacation rental home in Paradise Retreat, with the largest swimming pool (equipped with built in tanning ledge) in the neighborhood, perfect for families and groups ready to enjoy the sun and sand of Florida beaches. Our beach house rental is available for weekly and short-term rentals, and we offer affordable rates year-round.

****NEW ADDITION: We have added a new option for you to rent a luxury GOLF CART to make your stay here at the Sand Castle more convenient and to provide a fun way to cruise along the strip and to and from the beach! Mention in your inquiry whether or not you would be interested in renting a cart, and for an additional fee of $275.00, we'll have the cart at the house ready-to-go! So call or email us today and be sure to inquire about one of the best ways to get around town and enjoy the breezy air down by the gulf, in our luxury golf cart!!!!****

Our beach house rental is located in sunny Miramar Beach, within minutes from Destin, Florida. It is perfect for couples, families, and/or friends ready to enjoy a fun and relaxing summer vacation!! It's only a short stroll from our property to enjoy the emerald waters and sugar-sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. For your convenience, The Sand Castle has beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and beach toys.

After a fun-filled day at the beach, you may want to grab a bite to eat at a seafood restaurant right on the gulf. Captain Dave's offers great seafood, with a dining room overlooking the ocean. For a cajun twist to your meal, Kenny D's, right across the street from Captain Dave's, has a lovely array of Louisiana seafood to choose from. Two other wonderful oceanfront seafood restaurants, The Crab Trap and Pompano Joe's, are only a short drive down the beach to the west and east.

Our vacation rental is conveniently located within minutes of the numerous amenities that Destin has to offer—shopping at the largest designer outlet mall in the USA, world famous deep-sea fishing, dolphin watching cruises, and romantic evening ocean cruises. Destin also offers entertainment and amusements for the whole family, such as water parks, parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, and much more! In addition, the Destin area is home to a dozen fine golf courses, a zoo, museums, and several state parks with walking courses and biking trails. So come kick off your shoes, soak up some sun (or relax in the shade), splash in the Gulf, and enjoy life.

If you need to connect with the outside world, we offer free high-speed wireless Internet. In addition, our property managers are always available by phone to answer any questions you may have.

About Rosemary

My family has been coming to Destin since 2005, and everytime we visited prior to acquiring this property, we would stay at one of the condos. We loved Destin so much that we decided it was time to invest in a property of our own, so in 2010, we bought The Sand Castle. One of the best parts of this home is definitely the location. It is so close to the beach, where the water is blue and the sand is like sugar. It has the largest designer outlet mall right down the road, restaurants that are absolutely exquisite, and amusements for the whole family to enjoy.

Rosemary purchased this house in 2010

Why Rosemary chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Destin has some of the most lovely beaches that I have ever seen. The waters are clear and blue, the sand is pearly white, the area is crime-free and safe for the whole family, the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing, the restaurants are divine, and the people are friendly. It doesn't get any better than that!

What makes this house unique

Our vacation rental is conveniently located within minutes of the numerous amenities that Destin has to offer—shopping at the largest designer outlet mall in the USA, world famous deep-sea fishing, dolphin watching cruises, and romantic evening ocean cruises. Destin also offers entertainment and amusements for the whole family, such as water parks, parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, and much more!

Destination Weddings Can be so Hard

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we made contact and reservations until the day we left, we were so pleased! Sometimes you look online and it doesn't match up to expectations but this did and MORE! It was like being at home while we spent the week taking care of details for our son's wedding. I was ecstatic, not knowing the nuances of the area, to realize we had EASY and PERFECT access to everything we needed for the wedding and even more! Rosemary was so kind and helpful! The day of the wedding we were even treated with a special "gift" and note of congratulations - my husband and I didn't see it until the end of the day but the gesture warmed my heart after so much giving of myself that day! So, not only did our needs get met - there was a memory or note made of what all was occurring and a recognition of it. I like big things - but I'm more sentimental with the little. Our family that came over or came in to stay were equally impressed. I'm definitely recommending and marking this location as perfect for us! Golf cart was an envy for many people we met! 4th of July week must have been a sellout for those rentals and all I had to do was "last minute" could we get it ready for us? They are waiting to make it special and it was! Thank you!

Great house and pool!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. It was modern and very clean. I felt right at home. The pool was a life saver that kept the kids, all 5 of them happy. Definitely get the golf cart, the walk isn't bad, but if you have little guys, it helps out. We will definitely chose this house again when we return to Destin! Thank you Rosemary, you were very kind and your manager, Angela was very helpful the only one time I had to call her with a question!! Again, you can't go wrong with this place. Loved it!!

Awesome 3 weeks at Paradise Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 amazing weeks at this quaint home that was very close to the beach (about a 7-8 minute walk). It was also very close to many of the other beaches in the Destin area which were all within a 10-15 minute drive as well as shopping and other amenities. We have traveled extensively in Florida and I have to say the Destin area has quickly become one of our favorite spots.

We chose not to rent the golf cart but that was also a nice option that we may consider for future stays. Rosemary (the owner) went out of her way to ensure we had a comfortable stay and was very accommodating even after our stay as she mailed a forgotten item to us. Awesome home and awesome owner. Look forward to staying there again real soon!!

Everything the listing stated, was a perfect location and well worth every penny

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time, the house was a perfect fit for us. I strongly recommend getting the golf cart, made everything so much easier and convenient when going to the beach or a restaurant. Absolutely will be back again!

Perfect family home

  • 5 of 5

This house is prefect for your next vacation. Our family of 4, and pup, enjoyed this home for several weeks. The layout is prefect, it is well equipped, and ready for your enjoyment. The pool is a great size with plenty of room to relax and enjoy the Florida sun. The neighborhood is lovely and so are the neighbors. The location is just out of tge traffic, but with great shopping right around the cirner. The owner was responsive and came by to meet us after we arrived. We will definitely be renting here again.
