About the area

LOCATION: The cottage is centrally located near shopping, restaurants, attractions and much much more. The gated beach pavilion is a wonderful benefit. This is privately owned by Emerald Shore HOA and is your private entrance to the crystal white beaches of the Emerald Coast! The Beach Pavilion has storage for shoes, bags, carts and also BATHROOMS! So you do not have to worry about running back to the house when nature calls! Beach chairs/umbrella service available. Emerald Shores provides a seasonal tram service to take you back and forth to the beach. The beach is only a short 5- 6 minute stroll from Selah. Should you want to take the tram with your beach supplies, just wait by the main road. It circles all day and is a great convenience when you have beach toys and coolers food for the day at the beach! The world famous beaches of Destin Florida are waiting for you on this vacation! The crystal white sand and clear emerald waters are available to you all year round. There is no more relaxing thing to do on your vacation than to simply sit on the beach and enjoy time with your family. Once you experience this, you too will return year after year! Destin is known for fantastic weather. The summer is the most popular time of year for family vacations. The summer heat is helped by the breeze of the Gulf of Mexico. Spending the day at the beach and then watching the sun set is an all time favorite of most families that make Destin a favorite summer hang out. The FALL is another wonderful time in Destin. The heat is replaced with warm days with less humidity, warm water in the gulf and less crowds all over town. Anytime is the best time to be here. We all need a chance to pause and reflect on the beauty all around us. To see life more simply and live life more richly. This is Selah Life By The Sea. We appreciate you taking the time to view our home. Please call or e-mail if you have questions. If you choose to stay with us, we are confident you will love our home and have a great time here at the beach! Do not forget to bring suntan lotion, hats, sunglasses, beach towels, toys, portable radio, binoculars for dolphin watching, flashlights to go walking on the beach or crab hunting at night.

“Great Week”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2016

Selah by the Sea Destin was a great space for 3 couples. We had a bar-b-que one night and were able to entertain about 10 extras very comfortably. Beds were comfy, kitchen very roomy. Home was clean and welcoming. All the accessories you could want for the beach (nice cooler and 2 wagons.) Great beach area with small bar and good food available) and nice pools. Yes we would stay here again. Convenient location and easy walk to beach. Tram was always available if needed.

Owner's reply: Thank you! Glad your stay at Selah by the Sea worked well for you and your friends/family. We want and love having repeat guests, Can't wait to have you back as our guests in the future.
