The 2nd floor consists of the Master bedroom and Bedroom #2 with King beds and balcony views of the beach. Bedroom #3 has a queen bed with balcony and bedroom #4 has two sets of bunk beds, which the kids (and adults too) will enjoy. Each bedroom also has its own private full bath.

We have the most fantastic beach location and community pool. We believe very strongly in cleanliness and convenience and you never have to worry about anything since we live just 15 minutes away. For your convenience, we include four beach chairs and umbrella, boogie boards and beach toys for the kids, dishwashing detergent, plastic garbage bags and Tide detergent. If you have a little one with you, we will provide at your request a high-chair, stroller and Pack’n Play crib. Once you have been our guest, you will want to return.

Area Information
No matter what the activity, it can be found here!
From strolling down our beach picking up sea shells on the way, to renting a bike or motor scooter, parasailing, fishing - even bowling or going to a movie!

Of course, no one can visit without making numerous trips to he nearby Sands Outlet Mall, largest of its kind in the States or Destin Commons Mall with theatre. If you are into water parks, there is Big Kahuna! Don't forget The Village at Baytowne Warf in Sandestin, a must see with great restaurants, shops, live music and all types of activities for the kids.

But you will spend most of your time, if not in the water or laying on the beach, just sitting on one of our two balconies watching the waves - Paradise Found!

Truly Paradise

Paradise Found was the perfect beach house for our family and friends. I loved that every beautiful bedroom had a private bath. And so spacious! The kitchen, den and dining areas were airy and roomy. The owners provided so many extras - beach toys, beach chairs, DVD movies, even a Keurig coffee maker. The balcony overlooking the Gulf was a great place for early morning coffee, the balcony overlooking the street activity was fun too! This is a convenient location, near shopping centers, restaurants and a CVS pharmacy. We enjoyed our trip to the beach so much because of this beautiful house; we will definitely be back!

Gorgeous Getaway

Gorgeous beachfront house with all the amenities of home. The house had plenty of room for our family and friends. Perfectly laid out for all our crew. It was beautifully furnished with all the comforts of home. Great kitchen for cooking and entertaining. The homeowners made sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing week away. We didn't even have to bring a bed or a stroller for the baby! We will definitely visit again and won't stay anywhere else!

Loved it!

The house was perfect- loved the size and location... very nicely decorated and clean. I liked that it was not three stories (fewer stairs). Great kitchen! Loved having a garage! The beach was great! Loved getting the complimentary umbrella and chairs! Loved being right on the beach and close to everything! No complaints!

We stayed at "Paradise Found" for a 4th time this summer. It was wonderful. The location is close to all the beach activities as well as some great seafood and Dairy Queen (we had ice cream loving kids) within walking distance. The home as always was clean and well stocked with beach toys. Larry was a great host and is always easy to get hold of if needed. We especially like the 2 story home instead of 3 and we had lots of room for everyone. We will definitely be back again!

Beachfront Paradise

We stayed in Miramar beach in May for a week long family reunion! The house was amazing, fully stocked, perfect layout, and steps from the beach! We truly had the best time! Thank you so much Larry!

We Are Family

We spent a fabulous week at ParadiseFound and moved every minute of it!! Larry and Kathy have gone to great lengths to make their beachside home very welcoming the minute you step inside. Everything was ready for our family to enjoy including our 6 and 2.5 year old grandchildren. Beach toys, booster seat, games to play, stroller--- all were ready to be enjoyed. There were 7 adults and the 2 grand kids and there was plenty of room for all of us. We made delicious meals on the grill and the kitchen had everything we needed. My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary during the week by renewing our vows on the beach right in front of this very special home at sunset. Larry answered all our questions regarding the use of the beach so we could plan ahead and it all worked out beautifully. This week will forever be in our memories, and having our 3 adult children along with their spouses and grandchildren with us made it all the more special! Thanks again Larry and Kathy for sharing your beautiful home with us!! It was indeed Paradise Found!!

Live like a Destin Millionaire

Immaculate beach front property on a quiet section of incredibly clean and beautiful beach. Very fun and safe place for kids. South facing property on East/West beach delivers glorious sunrises and sunsets off the front porches. Highly recommend this property and we've already booked a return trip. Larry the owner is fantastic to work with.

Paradise Found was Awesome!

We stayed at the Victor's house over spring break. Larry came over the day after we arrived to meet us and see if we needed anything. He was very accessible throughout our stay ( he lives a few miles away ). In all of our visits from Colorado, to Florida to St John I can honestly say that this home had a personal touch unlike any others we have rented in the past. For example- we arrived to find a small gift of a beach bag with a few beach necessities in it as well as a note wishing us well during our vacation. Larry responded to any questions I had within a day. If you are lucky enough to find this house rentable during the time you are wanting to go to FL, do not hesitate. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Larry for the personal touch and the awesome experience our two families had at your home. Blessings to you and your family- Andrea

Absolutely wonderful!!

Our family had a wonderful experience here! We loved everything about it. The sound of the waves, the dolphins playing, the beautiful beach right at our door, the view, the amazing house, the great bicycle/walking path, the central location, what more can I say?!! Thank you, we had a great time!

First Time at the Beech!

If your looking for a warm home on the beech then look no further. Larry has went above and beyond to make our stay at his house feel like we are at our home. We stayed the week of Thanksgiving and every part of this house fit the needs of all our family perfect. Especially when Larry dropped off a gift for us Thanksgiving day which included a much needed sale paper for Black Friday. Being farmers we don't get much time off but we will definitely plan on staying here whenever we get a chance.

Amazing Beach Home!

We stayed at this stunning beach home for 11 nights and it was everything and even more than the listing states because you have to see it in person to truly appreciate this beautiful home and the magnificent view. And you just can't beat the location, convenient to everything. This home is in between the Whale's Tail and Pampano Joe's restaurants and just a short stroll down the sugar white beach to each. On the street side, a short stroll down is a local winery with great gifts with custom labels for bottles of wine. I'm not an early riser, but with the view you wake up to every morning, its impossible to stay in bed. Coffee on either of the two very large balconies every morning with unparalleled beauty all around, there is no better way to start the day. And the sunsets every evening are unmatched anywhere I have seen. The home's amenities are everything stated. We actually cooked in a lot more than we anticipated because the kitchen is so nice and everything is so comfortable and we were already at the best place on the beach. And last but definitely not least......the owner, Larry, is one of the nicest people we have ever met and he went out of his way to make sure we were settled in and had everything we needed. He takes great pride in his amazing beach home and his personal welcome was very much appreciated and it was such a pleasure to meet him. If you make "Paradise Found" your vacation destination, you will not be disappointed and you will not want to leave, trust me!

We truly enjoyed our week at Paradise Found, the house was lovely and provided a great vacation for the grandbabies! I appreciate how clean and stocked we found everything.

SHHH Please Don't Tell ANYONE about this place

I am torn. If I say what I really believe We will never be able to get back because there ill be no free dates. The property is exceptional. My family has high expectations. I was worried until we opened the front door. The home is warm and inviting. We had four adult families and a couple of kids. The lower level provides a stunning view of the gulf. The dining table was place of joy and laughter. The house is very well outfitted with a great deal of attention to detail. There are beach chairs, games, screw drivers, flashlights, gas grill, all the things a working house needs. Larry is a wonderful host. When we melted the toaster,(long story) we switched it out for a metal one within the hour. He was very kind to our grandchildren. I felt very pleased with my choice. The pool is one block north of the house. It is a short walk and a very nice well kept area. The house is upscale with nice appliances, nice bedding and decorations. Cable TV and internet worked great. We took an Apple TV and watched NetFlix. The Beaches are some of the best in the world. Perfect place for families. BUT Remember don't tell anyone else how great this place is .

Vacation grand

We had our entire family at Paradis Found (12) found it to provide everything we needed. A breath taking view of the gulf, shopping and resturants everywhere and spacious room for all. Our home with a view that I will return to next year. A perfect week on the Gulf of Mexico

Tamara Hankins


Perfect vacation

Great beach house! It had plenty of room for large family. Everything you needed was available. Owners were super nice and made sure you were happy with while staying at their house. Would love to go back and stay at the same place again. Absolutely loved it!!

Awesome Family Vacation

Our family enjoyed this vacation home so much! Being right on the beach made it so easy for the age ranges in our group 4-65. Larry checked on us to be sure everything was perfect for our stay. We found everything convenient whether cooking in or going out to eat. We highly recommend this location and hope to return soon!

Our 50th Wedding Anniversary

7/13/13 – 7/20/13 “Paradise Found” was everything we had hoped for and more. The house was gorgeous, right on the beach and decorated beautifully. Everything in the house was first class and every need provided from linens to beach chairs. Our family of 11 included our daughter and her family and our son and his family who joined us and were very pleased. There were games, movies and local activities for our grandchildren, ages 21, 18, 10, 8, and 3. Everyone was there to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Larry and Kathy were wonderful, very helpful with golf arrangements and other activities. We highly recommend “Paradise Found” and look forward to visiting again. Thank you Larry and Kathy for a wonderful vacation.

Fabulous home, impeccable service

Our family of 9 (including 3 grandsons under 4 years old) spent a delightful week at this home just before Memorial Day weekend. I can't say enough about this beautiful, tastefully appointed home directly on a gorgeous, private beach! Just bring your food and clothes, because Larry has thoughtfully provided for everything else, including paper products, liquid hand soap, bar soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent and fabric softener, etc.! The layout is perfect, with the living/kitchen areas on the first floor and the bedrooms on the second. The 2 master suites are very spacious, with large bathrooms and his and her closets. The outside decks on both levels provide fantastic views, plenty of shade and comfortable furniture. Even the beach chairs and umbrellas were first-class! We also got plenty of use out of the kids' beach toys. It was a real pleasure dealing with Larry, who went out of his way to accommodate our requests, especially in regard to equipment needs for our infant and toddler grandsons. It is evident he takes impeccable care of this property and prioritizes friendly, prompt customer service. The location is terrific--close enough to everything, including 2 restaurant/bars you can walk to along the beach, yet off-the-beaten-path enough to feel quiet and peaceful. CVS and Publix are nearby, along with various restaurants. Overall, this home was inviting, very clean, beautifully furnished and very functional. We would definitely rent again if we're in the Destin area. Thanks for everything, Larry!

Wow Wow Wow!! Just perfect!!

We had an awesome time. EVERYTHING was perfect! Home was 1st class! not one complaint or suggestion could be mentioned. The home was very clean NOT worn like many rentals are. Kitchen was large and ALL cooking accessories were there and in order. They even provided games and new modern movies for the kids and adults alike. We have found our yearly vacation spot! Also owners were VERY nice and personal. Quality Beach umbrellas and quality chairs and beach toys were provided as well. Well worth the money spent and so easy walking out your back door and being a few steps away from the beach. I also enjoyed having coffee on one of the 2 balconies before everyone woke up. The balconies are great for a romantic dinner overlooking the ocean and beach as well. BOOK IT!!! Larry & Ali

We rented the beach house for a wedding weekend/wedding on the beach. We walked in the door pleasantly surprised because the pictures don't do this place justice! The Victors were wonderful to rent from and extremely easy to work with! I'm so glad we found "Paradise Found." What a wonderful trip!! Highly recommended we couldn't have found better.

Our first ever multi family trip to Florida and stay at "Paradise Found" couldn't have been better. The house is spectacular with plenty of room for everyone. The open living and dining allowed for family activities during the day or night with a spectacular view of the gulf from every inch of the area. The large open decks on both levels were open to family activities or set privately and feel the sounds and smells of the gulf. Lower deck entry way to the downstairs restroom kept the house free of beach sand. Plenty of beach seats, umprella's, strollers, etc. were used every day. We had everyone pack a very light travel bag and made use of the spacious laundry room. Shopping was a cinch for the ladies with Walmart and the outdoor mall just a short drive away. There was plenty of golf courses nearby with Windswept Dunes being my favorite of the three we played. I think the ladies may already be planning the next trip to Destin or Miramar Beach so I'm sure that Paradise Found will be their choice. We thank Larry for his hospitality and enjoyed a short visit with him. .

It was great having your family as our guest and look forward to having you as our guest again next year. PS Thanks for the great review!

Excellent! Couldn't have been better!

Another family and ours rented this beautiful house for Spring Break '13. The owners (Larry & Cathy) couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating, and the décor far exceeded other rental homes we have viewed. He met us at the house the minute we arrived to orient us to the amenities, and made himself available 24x7 in case of any questions or issues. The beach setting is beautiful and just a few steps away. When we go back to Destin, we will not waste time searching the universe for rentals, we'll simply call Larry!

Larry & Kathy V.

Owner's reply:

Wow! Thanks for the kind words. You guys were GREAT guests and we look forward to having your family back again next year!

Cordova, TN

Lives up to it's name

Our family has just returned from a stay in what is very appropriately named "Paradise Found". The spectacular view of the Gulf, beautiful furnishings, well-equiped kitchen and comfortable beds were more than we could ask for. It was the most immaculately clean house/condo we've every stayed in. Larry and Kathy were most interested in making our stay a memorable one and they certainly succeeded. Everything was perfect and we hated to leave. We can't wait to return to this beautiful beach house!
