Formerly known as Living the Dream, this vacation home is being spruced up and renamed Arcadia.
This gracious three story, four bedroom Mediterranean style home resembles a castle-like villa with its elegant curved entry staircase and terracotta roof crown. In fact, this Destin vacation home is located within the upscale neighborhood of homes known as Terracotta Terrace which is adjacent to Scenic Gulf Drive. This privileged community has double tennis courts, a space for sand volleyball as well as a private swimming pool complete with an expansive sun deck, showers, restroom facilities, dressing rooms and even a sauna. Not that you will need to use the dressing rooms since Arcadia is conveniently located just steps away. It’s also just a short scenic stroll to the crystal white beach and jewel toned waters of the gulf.
Arcadia’s 3,500 square feet of space provides ample room for everyone and comfortably accommodates up to sixteen guests.

This open space has rich travertine flooring that sweeps from the living room into the dining and kitchen areas. This area is handsomely decorated in a tropical theme including leather furnishings that face a flat screen TV. There is also a kid’s media room adjacent. A dining table sits in one part of the room under a vintage chandelier. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances which includes a gas island range, oven and a large side by side refrigerator. Black granite countertops include a multi-sided bar with raised seating which creates a special hub for serving savory seafood appetizers. This beach home is wonderful for entertaining since it has high tech surround sound systems, CDs, DVDs and flat screen TVs in every bedroom. The second floor covered balcony has a gas grill along with a table and outdoor seating for the enjoyment of dining el fresco. This interconnects to the upstairs balcony via a beautiful spiral staircase.

We recently stayed in Arcadia for our yearly family vacation to Destin. This home suited all of our needs! The house is in a great location! I like the fact that it was in a nice neighborhood close to the beach, and near all the Destin attractions. The house itself was wonderful! Enough space for our growing family, and enough kitchen space so I could comfortably cook dinner and prepare meals. A huge plus is the owner allows pets so I could bring along my little yorkie. We enjoyed having the community pool to cool off after our daily visits to the beach. Great house, easy walk to the beach, beautiful neighborhood. I would recommend it to any of my friends and.
