About Jackie Bowen

Jason & Jackie both grew up in North Georgia. They just celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary. Jason & Jackie love The Lord, love their family, church family, and both own their own business. Jason is a commercial & residential general contractor while Jackie is a stay-at-home mom and photographer. They have been blessed with three children. Jace (13 years old) loves to play basketball, travel baseball and hunting with his Daddy! Carly & Claire, the twins (11 years old), enjoy playing softball, travel basketball, swimming, gymnastics and playing with their friends!

Jackie Bowen purchased this house in 2015

Why Jackie Bowen chose Miramar Beach

Jason had grown up going to Destin each year with his family as a young boy through adulthood. Lord willing, he is continuing the family tradition! Jason & Jackie had been searching & praying for "THE" beach home quite seriously for the last couple years. Some of their church friends highly recommended buying a home in Emerald Shores (they also own a home in Emerald Shores too). Jackie and her children came down to Emerald Shores with her family, Memorial Day weekend of 2015. They all fell in love with neighborhood. They looked at a couple of homes for sale and let's just say the rest is history! The Lord has blessed them immeasurably with this home "BLESSING BY THE SEA!" Jason and Jackie are still in AWE! They can't wait to share their BLESSING with YOUR FAMILY!

What makes this house unique

Besides the crystal clear water and sugary sandy white beaches, the BATHROOMS with PRIVATE deeded beach access sold them on this neighborhood! They love being tucked away in their spacious and cozy BLESSING BY THE SEA on the 1st beach street! The neighbors are AWESOME too!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming each winter to Destin for the past 5 years and this home is by far the best place we have stayed. The first floor master bedroom was large comfortable and perfectly situated for my wife and I. We had other relative staying in Destin and several friends visit us during our stay. The living room had more than enough space to accommodate all of our visitors. The Kitchen is well stocked with just about everything you need including an ice machine which was great for our cocktail hours. The home is only a short walk to the beach and we walked several time to Captain Dave's and Kenny D's for dinner. We love the place so much that we have already booked if for 2019. We can't wait to return and enjoy this wonderful home. Thanks Jackie for all the help you gave us. See you next year.

Best experience we have had in our lives, From the first time we contact the Owner and property manager, Jackie, to the moment we left the house, it was an amazing experience. Exceptional costumer service, fast responses, attention to detail, willingness to help, BEAUTIFUL AND SPACIOUS HOME, family oriented, it has everything you need, SPOTLESS AND CLEAN and i could write more and more positive things about BLESSING BY THE SEA, but words cannot describe the beauty and convenience of this place which is truly BLESSED! "The sand may brush off, The salt may wash away, The tans may fade, but the memories will last forever" THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO CREATE THOSE MEMORIES!

Loved this property

  • 5 of 5

When we opened the front door of this property we were all impressed with the decorating, the size of the rooms and the cleanliness. We found everything available for our week's stay. The owner provided a wagon for us to transport our beach gear to the beach which was just a short walk. The beach was wonderful and we also enjoyed the pool. The owner was available if we needed anything. I would come here again.

Blessings Galore!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our families have spent Thanksgiving in Destin Florida and Emerald Shores specifically for decades. Last year we rented Blessings by the Sea and IT WAS a tremendous BLESSING for our family. Many times the bedding is an issue but we had just what we needed. This home was perfect for us. Each of my children had a floor of their own. The sitting area was great for our large family, Kitchen was very well supplied. Plenty of everything. We were so comfortable and had a great week. Really enjoyed seeing photos ofJackie and her family. We watched football (Georgia and LSU) that weekend so guys really enjoyed the large screen! Everything about our stay was wonderful. We FELT SO AT HOME we tried to get it again this year but it's wasn't available :( I would highly recommend this vacation home!!

A Blessing for us

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Destin to spend Christmas with our son, daughter-in-law, and grandson - we brought the whole family - three adult children & their spouses and three grandchildren, ages 5 to 14. Blessing by the Sea was perfect for our large group. The extra living space on the third floor was great for the young men that wanted to play games & be loud. The wrap around leather sectional recliners in the living room were awesome - no fighting for space on the couch - there was room for everyone! The kitchen was perfect - the ice machine in the kitchen is brilliant and two refrigerators were so helpful for our large group. There was enough bedding and linens for all - the bathrooms were well stocked with what we needed. Everything was so clean and ready for us to just move in. The location was perfect - the beach was so close that even the four year old had no problem keeping up when we walked there - the little wagon was helpful for the return trip. In all, we had a wonderful Christmas with our family & even though we weren't at home, it felt almost like home. We are planning on going back this year and doing it again. The youngest grandson wants to go back to Grandma's house on the beach!!!

A true Blessing!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to Destin but first at Blessings by the Sea. We were absolutely thrilled with the home when we arrived, it is a beautiful home and was perfect for our family and the family we stayed with. The kids loved the second floor, they made it their own with the great bunk room and large master in the other bedroom. Having two master bedrooms was absolutely perfect. Everything was updated and looked brand new and the home was so clean upon arrival. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. And the bonus of the second refrigerator was fantastic. But Jackie the owner was the best part of the trip, she was so very accommodating and ready to help us in any way possible to have a great stay. Because of her attention and caring alone, I would rent this home again. The bathrooms on the beach were another great added bonus as well as the wagon to pull our stuff to the beach. No doubt we would rent again at Blessings by the Sea!!!

'BLESSING BY THE SEA' is in the perfect location! It is within walking distance to our favorite restaurants "Kenny D's and Captain Dave's". It is minutes away from Silver Sands Outlet Mall & Bass Pro Shops. One of our favorite things to do in the evenings, besides crab hunting on the beach is Go Kart Racing at "The Track" or "Big Kahuna's."
