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. Give us a call today for further information regarding our rental home or to plan your upcoming Florida vacation!

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 Miramar Beach

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!

This property has a great layout for a family.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this location. It's tucked away in a quiet neighborhood but, close to everything. We rented the golf cart which was a huge bonus driving to the beach and local shops/restaurants. It was so fun riding the strip in the golf cart. We also rented two bikes which was great to get around as well. The pool was perfect and we had a hard time leaving it for the beach. Rosemary was very accommodating and helpful getting us settled. She checked on us multiple times and that was much appreciated.

Overall lovely!

  • 3 of 5

Overall lovely! Excellent location! We rented the unit for the month February along with the golf cart. The property manger was AWESOME! She was on top of all our requests! We had a flat tire on the golf cart and while we enjoyed a beautiful walk on the beach, when we got back to the cart, within 25 minutes it was fixed!

The place could use a good cleaning! The mattress in the master suite NEEDS TO BE REPLACED!!!!! We had to sleep in one of the other rooms to get somewhat of a good night sleep. The living room furniture NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, as plywood is placed under the cushions for support. Overall experience was a little than excellent! We would definitely come back again to rent a home on Sandy Cay Drive. It is a tucked away subdivision and a great location! The neighborhood is awesome and is very pet friendly! We'll would give it a 4 star IF WAS CLEANER AND THE MATRESS AND LIVING ROOM FURNITURE WAS UPDATED!

GREAT! It was exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in January! We have two dogs and we were able to walk to the Scenic Highway in only a few minutes. Once there, we could walk for miles on the bike path with an ocean view on the side. The beach and water are absolutely beautiful. The home met all our needs very well. Everyone is the neighborhood was super friendly. It's convenient to shops and restaurants- some within walking distance. Angela, the property manager, was easy to reach and was quick to respond to us. Rosemary, the owner, checked in with me two times to see how things were. We would love to return next year.

Great location close to shopping, restaurants and beaches.

  • 3 of 5

Property needs a major cleaning and maintenance. Screens broken with huge holes in them, stove is old, furniture and beds were awful. Hole in the wall in master closet. Broken chairs in bedrooms. Will not be staying here again. Had to have the toilet repaired, batteries in the smoke alarm and the kitchen light fixed when we first got there. There are other homes in this neighborhood that are much nicer.

Sandcastle was wonderful 😁

  • 5 of 5

We were there preparing for our daughters wedding. Everything was beautiful. Loved this house, and loved the pool. Definitely rent the golf cart as it is a hop and skip to the beach, but not to far. Would definitely rent again. Thank you Rosemary and Angela for all your hospitality, we made some great memories!
