This family friendly home features a third floor with 2 Master Suites, each with a private bathroom. Keep your smaller children close by in the separate bunk area.

About the area

Enjoy your day of shopping, adventuring, site-seeing or beach-going on the "24 mile long ribbon of sparkling, snow-white beaches" of Destin, as voted the #1 "Beach Town/Resort" in the 2008 Southern Living "Readers' Choice Awards," January 2008 edition. Then relax in the lush landscaping of the private courtyard, reminisce over the day's events, take a dip, or just sit and listen to the home's namesake, Neptune, a wall-mounted fountain, as he emits his spray into the private lagoon pool. The pool is enclosed, separate from the courtyard. Neptune's Nook is located directly on the corner of Scenic Gulf Drive and Miami Street. The coastal town of Destin is known as the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village" where the fresh catch of day can be enjoyed just up the street at great local restaurants such as "Pompano Joe's," "Captain Dave's," or "The Whale's Tail." Just steps away you can enjoy wine tasting, gourmet coffee, grab a pizza, shop for souvenirs, or rent a scooter. Shopping at "Silver Sands Factory Outlet", the nation's largest designer factory outlet, featuring more than 100 name brand designer stores, or "Destin Commons" featuring the "Bass Pro Shop" and "Hard Rock Cafe" are only a few minutes away.

“Fantastic home and fabulous location”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2015

We enjoyed everything about this beautiful home! Plenty of space for the three families in our group. Everything within walking distance or the tram service was available. Private pool. Beautiful views. Three bedrooms are on the lower level so if stairs are an issue, keep it in mind. We would definitely recommend and would love to rent again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the great review. We're glad everyone had a good vacation. Thank you Dale

“Perfect family vacation”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2014

We managed to get the only week available all summer, so grateful we did! We have stayed in Destin many times over the last 10 years, and this vacation by far tops them all. The pictures don't do justice to this incredible home. We had 2 adults and 8 young adults with us. MORE than enough room for everyone. The house is impeccibly decorated, every nook and cranny has been carefully thought out. This vacation is exactly what we were looking for; walk across the street to the beach, come back at end of the day turn on the grill, stereo and jump in the pool while dinner's getting ready. Everyone in our group said the same thing, we all want to come back here as soon as we can. Owner was great, checked in on us to make sure there were no problems. Very attentive, but never overbearing. Can't wait to rent again!! Thank you

Owner's reply: I'm glad you and our family had such a good time on your vacation. Thanks again for the wonderful review.

“Family celebration”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2014

Our family stayed at Neptune's Nook to celebrate our daughter's 40th birthday. It was the perfect house for three families to share as it had beautiful common spaces and great areas for each family to have their own space. The home is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you could want. The kitchen has granite counters, stainless appliances,and is furnished with everything you could possibly need. The location is ideal as it is just across the street from a gated beach area. The beach is beautiful, not crowded, and has available chair/umbrella service. The house is convenient to many places for eating, shopping, entertainment without being congested. The grandkids (ages 14-2) loved having music and lights at our own private pool. They liked the game room, riding bikes, walking on the beach every night, and spending each day between the beach and pool. The adults especially appreciated the private spaces on each floor with plenty of TV's, extra towels, wine fridge, and washer and dryer. The house is extremely clean and the owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. They made the extra effort to check on our stay, communicate with us before and after our trip, and were very efficient in handling the financial arrangements. I would highly recommend Neptune's Nook and will return whenever in the Destin area.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the wonderful review.

“Fun”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2014

The house met all of our expectations. This was a family vacation with kids and grandkids present. The fact that everyone had their own bedrooms was great. Pool was great! Kids loved it. Plenty of activities within a short driving distance along with the beach within walking distance was especially helpful in keeping everyone occupied. Only complaint was the downstairs bedroom leading out to pool got hot at night. Air conditioning didn't do a good job. Other then that had a great time!

“WONDERFUL !!”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2014

We had a great time in Destin Florida. Neptunes Nook was very clean, comfortable, and beautiful. We loved the closeness of the beach, directly across from the house. Very Very Happy and Pleased with the home, pool, parking for all 3 vehicles. A lovely home that is close to everything. My husband, myself and our 3 grown children with their spouses, 1 grandson and 2 step grand daughters stayed, which totaled 11. We had so much room and the children had so much fun in the pool and playing foose ball. We will definitely return to Neptunes Nook. We would have loved to have stayed another week or more.

“When can I come back?”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2013

The house was beautifully decorated, right across the street from white sandy beach, next door to a winery (with free wine tasting), had a nice patio area with a pool perfect for cooling off after day at the beach, kids loved the games and beach gear! With 11 family members in the same house the 3 floors were perfect to have our own space! Family vacation was enjoyed by the whole family!! Food and shopping were close as an extra bonus! We also loved the drink koozies and beach bags that were sent to us before our trip(-;

“Neptune's Nook”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2013

The home was perfect for our family. There was plenty of room to be together or we could separate if needed. It was very well stocked and close to shopping and several popular restaurants.

“Great Stay at Neptune's Nook!”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

Our party of 9 recently had the opportunity to stay at Neptunes Nook at Mirimar Beach in Destin. If you are looking for very spacious accommodations, a great location and well kept home to rent, this is your place. Dale (owner) and family go all out to make you feel at home. The house is completely ready for a nice relaxing week. We enjoyed the convenient beach access and close proximity to shops, restaurants and the coffee shop next door. Book Neptune's Nook next time your in Destin and you won't be disappointed.

“Convenient, Beautiful and Very Spacious”

Reviewed 23 May 2010

This was a wonderful home very clean and spacious and conveniently located right across from the beach. It was a great place for family to relax by the pool when you have had enough of the sand. The owners have given great detail to all the necessities for making this truly a vacation home. The beach was beautiful and the sunsets made a great background for lots of pictures. I would definitely stay here again.

“Love it!!!”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2009

I stayed at Neptunes Nook with 6 other girls....we had a BLAST!!! The pictures online are great but do not even do it justice....its super nice yet very comfortable. We were very nervous about too many women in one place but it was so roomy and spacious we always had a place to "escape" to. The beach access was very convenient everyone just came and went as they pleased. The private pool was nice as well......we loved the entertainment system.....we had music going all the time. The house is so nice you truly never want to leave. Not to mention the gorgeous water everday!! I highly recommend it and hopefully will be going back soon!!!
