Description from owner

Above the surf and sand of the world's most beautiful beaches is your vacation oasis, Above The Surf, where walls of windows bring the shimmer and sparkle of the azure Gulf waters inside. Perfect for family gatherings, this home offers guests a private Gulf front retreat in the quiet, Old Florida neighborhood of Gulf Pines in Miramar Beach. From the elegantly appointed and professionally decorated interior, to the unobstructed views of the sunset from the hot tub, this 5 bedroom, 5 bath Mediterranean home, which sleeps up to 16 people, has over 4,000 square feet of luxury for every member of the family. Above The Surf, located directly on the beach and nestled between the dining, shopping and entertainment of Sandestin Resort and the unparalleled outlet shopping of Silver Sands Premium Outlet Mall, gives everyone something to enjoy while together...even fishing in the neighborhood lake.

The ground floor, a haven for teen travelers, sleeps 8. The Gulf front family room has a leather sleeper sofa sectional and a 50" TV and DVD player featuring surround sound and zoned audio system, providing the younger set with an entertainment area of their own. The adjoining bunk room features two sets of built-in triple bunk beds, reminiscent of train travel, as well as dual 40" TVs - one for enjoying movies, while the gaming enthusiasts can battle on the Xbox/DVD gaming system. Stepping out onto the lower sun deck, guests can enjoy gorgeous sunsets from the oversized hot tub under the pergola, or grill their fresh catch of the day on the gas grill. The deck also has a private gated outdoor shower, perfect for getting sand out of bathing suits before an evening of crabbing on the 1200' of private beach. There is also a two-car garage on the ground level.

The second floor main level, which sleeps 4 guests, features an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen for the culinary enthusiast, including stainless steel appliances, glass-tiled backsplash, granite countertops, and kitchen island, providing seating for 5 early birds to enjoy breakfast and activity planning. An additional refrigerator in the pantry and icemaker insure the beverage of choice on a hot summer day will be served ice cold. Views of the Gulf are exceptional from the dining area, which comfortably seats 12 at the dining table, constructed of wooden beams salvaged from a British warehouse. In the living area, the entire family can catch the latest game on the 65" 3D television and audio system from either of the two premium leather sofas or additional armchairs. A covered porch directly off of the living area is the perfect place for an afternoon nap following beach time, and the glass balustrade reveals unobstructed views of the emerald surf. The king bedroom on this level offers a 40" flat screen TV/DVD player, full bathroom, and room darkening Roman shades for light sleepers. There is also a queen bedroom on this level, complete with full bath and 32" flat screen TV/DVD player.

Located on the third floor, which sleeps 4 guests, the king master bedroom's private balcony offers a respite with a glass balustrade for unimpeded Gulf views outdoors, while the Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom provides a welcome place to unwind indoors. A desk with internet connection and sitting area provides a place for vacationing executives to connect with the office while in paradise. Room darkening Roman shades contribute to the privacy, and there is another 50" flat screen TV in the bedroom. An additional king bedroom with full bath and 40" flat screen TV with DVD player enhances the third level.

Above the Surf -- Gulf front, elegant, and "above it all"-- could be your next vacation destination. Come experience the Gulf of Mexico as your very own backyard!
