Description from owner

Welcome to Summer Dreams!

Summers Dreams, your luxurious vacation home, is located in a very well-kept, private gated community called Emerald Waters Village in Miramar Beach, FL.

This beautiful family-oriented home is a three-story, 5000 square foot home - professionally designed to allow for 4 – 5 families to make wonderful vacation memories together – just as our family does. Summer Dreams has perfectly lovely sleeping accommodations for up to 22 people. 24 guests maximum in our home.

Feel free to call or text me (Gregg) day or night with any questions you may have. I will generally respond within 1 - 4 hours with answers. I want to make your vacation and rental experience as enjoyable as possible.

When you enter the home you will be amazed at the spaciousness! The well-appointed first floor holds a stunning foyer, crown moulding (which is located throughout the entire home), a huge living room with plenty of seating and a flat screen TV, floor to ceiling windows overlooking the patio and pool, dining room (one table holds 8 people and another table holds 6 people, with seating for 10 people on the patio), and the very well stocked kitchen. Enjoy upscale amenities in the fully loaded kitchen: stainless steel appliances, granite countertops (2 stools at the counter), regular coffee pot as well as a Keurig, dishwasher, ice maker and all of the cooking utensils, dishes, glasses and silverware needed to cook a gourmet meal for your family and friends. People have held their family’s Thanksgiving dinner in this spacious area.

We have cable TV which also has music channels; DVD players in the first floor living room, the 2nd floor lounge area and the 3rd floor kids’ recreation room.

The interior designers did a fantastic job at selecting paint colors for each room. Bright and cheery colors for the kids’ rooms with the bunk beds, calm and relaxing colors for the adult bedrooms.

These amenities are available for people with children: high chair, two booster seats, regular size crib, pack and play and an umbrella stroller.

There is a half bath close to the entry way and a laundry room with extra-large washer and dryer, a sink, ironing board and iron.

Also on the 1st floor is a very spacious and lovely king master suite which has two walk-in closets (heated and cooled where a crib is located), a large flat screen TV and the master bathroom has a wonderfully large walk-in natural stone shower, a soaker tub and a two-bowl granite sink. This is perfect if you have older family members who have trouble climbing steps.

The pool is one of the largest in the area which goes from 3’ to 5’ in depth with a little nook and ledge which you can sit on to watch the kids in the pool. Kids love the three jets that shoot out over the pool and colored pool lights for night. For a fee, the pool can be heated if necessary. There are pool toys in a chest. A separate patio area has a table and a large gas grill. For safety, both patio gates by the pool latch automatically so little children cannot get to the pool area unattended. There is a showerhead in the driveway to rinse off the sand when returning from the beach.

There are also two community pools in the complex which are a short walk away from our home.

Destin has the whitest and cleanest beaches in the world. When you are ready to sink your toes in the sugary sand, there is a private beach entrance about a three-minute walk away for Emerald Waters Village visitors. There is a 3-way stop at the corner where you cross the street to our private beach entrance which makes it safer to cross. And the walk is easy for small children.

The second floor has two lovely and tranquil queen bedrooms with private bath and flat screen TVs. Bathrooms have the same walk-in natural stone showers and double sinks. One of them also has a tub.

The second beautiful master suite is also on this floor. It is huge and painted a soothing blue. There are two walk-in closets where there is a pack and play. The bathroom is awesome with double sink, another gorgeous walk-in natural stone double showerhead and a soaker tub if you want to unwind after a very busy day sightseeing.

There is a lounge which has been dubbed The Man Cave! It overlooks the fantastic second floor balcony which is just over the pool. The Man Cave has a flat screen with DVD player, leather sofa and chairs, a small refrigerator and little “bar” area for pouring those refreshing drinks after a hot day at the beach.

The third floor is what we have come to call the Kids’ Floor. There are two darling rooms painted in bright colors; each have 2 bunk beds, dresser and closet for either kids or an adult. There is a Jack and Jill bathroom between one of the bunk rooms and the queen bedroom.

The queen bedroom is a good size room and is decorated in greens and blues with flat screen TV, dresser and closet. The person(s) in this room can use the hall bath for their private bath.

One of the favorite spots for kids/teens will become the recreation room on the 3rd floor. It has a flat screen with DVD, pull-out couch, two huge bean bags that hold a couple of kids, and a foosball table. In the hallway is a shuffleboard table for competition games. There is a table for four where they can play cards, color, whatever they want.

About the area

Our home is in the perfect location. We are located in a wonderful gated community so traffic is kept to a minimum. The beach is a short walk away and we have our own entrance to our private beach. There is a walking/biking path next to the beach road that run the entire length of the beach road. Perfect for walking, biking or running. Both Silver Sands outdoor shopping and Destin Commons outlet mall are short drives from our home. We have over 4 beautiful golf courses within a 10 minute drive from our home as well. Famous Pompano Joe's and The Whale's Tail restaurants are only 1/4 mile away. We walk there all the time. There is an Alvin's Island right across the street and has everything you need for a week at the beach. Including ice cream! Our kids walk over there at least twice a week to look around. There is a Bad Ass Coffee right down the street. And a scooter rental store right next door to that. Pompano Joe's The Whale's Tail Fat Clamenzas Don Pedros Cantina Surf Hut The Crab Trap

“Spring break”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2015

The house is beautifully. The pictures do not begin to do this place justice. The heated pool was wonderful. My toddler loved the tanning shelf. It was like a private baby pool:) The owner responded to my texts within 15 mins and was very approachable. We had an issue with the smoke detectors going off and he had a repair person there and changing batteries within 30 minutes. We will be returning to the house in the future!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This house was fantastic for our four families! The location is just a short walk to the beach. The house is beautifully decorated, has comfortable beds, roomy bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms. The kitchen is perfectly equipped for cooking and has plenty of space to gather for large "family" dinners. We paid for the pool to be heated and it was great for the kids to swim in, even on the rainy days we had. It was obvious this house was planned out well for adults and children. Three different "areas" for people to hang out and have fun. Our boys loved the "man cave", all the kids loved the third floor rec room and everyone enjoyed the large couch space and kitchen area for movies and games on the first floor. We had 4 great days of beautiful sunshine and were thankful for the beach chairs provided! The owners have thought of everything you need to make a beach vacation fun! Would highly recommend this house!

It's been over a week and we are still talking about how nice the home and location were. The house is spacious and has a getaway spot for everyone on every level. The kids had the third floor with games, quiet relaxation indoors and out on the second floor, and heated pool, entertainment, and eating on the first floor. Wow! And if you really want to get away the beach is only a 1/2 block away (football on the beach was great!). This house has been one of the best places we have ever stayed in 7 years of family vacationing. Really, there is not a bad room in the house, so large families should have no problem deciding who gets which room. This is one place we would like to stay again. Thanks Gregg for a wonderful family vacation at your home.

We had everything we needed and had plenty of space for 22 people. The pool was a lifesaver...when you have 11 kids especially. Everything was perfect. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

This was a great place to be together with our family. The beach was beautiful and the pool was great so nice at the end of the day. The owner thought of a lot of things to make your vacation easier (large washer and dryer).

We had the privilege to be the 2nd renters for this great house ! We came with our families of 13 counting my husband and my self.The house was layed out perfectly with all our teens on the 3rd floor , our adults on the 2nd and my husband and I on the first floor. The walk to the beach was easy and the pool at the end of the day was so refreshing and our kids loved it and used it alot ! It took us a couple of days to figure out how much fun the jets to the pool were. We did get to experience storm "Debby "on Sunday with rain and some high winds yet we just shopped, played shuffelboard, and other games, watched movies and waited on the sun.It was a great week! We had pictures taken on the beach and we renewed our vows in front of the grill as our children expressed there appreciation for our 50th wedding anniversary.The place is wonderful for all ages,the walk to the beach was nice, the patience of Gregg was so appreciated ! We have and will recommend this place to our friends and of course on the first day there the picture of the front and back of the house went out on (social media place that we can't mention) as did 110 other pictures. Hope this will help you Gregg as you build your book of repeat business. Thanks again ! p.s. the Ocean Grill Restaurant was very nice and the food was great !

My family and I spent a wonderful week in this absolutely beautiful home in a very nice neighborhood. There were 10 of us (5 children from 3-12) and it is spacious enough for the kids to be running around but not interfering with the adults visiting. The kids loved the 3rd floor kids area with foosball table, TV/DVD and shuffleboard. Of course, the pool was a plus for them. The beds were very comfortable for everyone. The walk to the beach was easy and there are many things to do not far away. It is tastefully furnished but yet liveable. The owners were very easy to work with. Everything we needed in the kitchen was available and found it was set up perfectly for fixing a family meal. From the pictures thought maybe it would be too small but it was not. A shopping mall was close by and many specialty shops. Of course, our favorite thing is trying out new restaurants and found many wonderful restaurants in the area. Right down the road is Pompano Joe's - one of our favorites! Back Porch, AJ's, lots of wonderful food. The children of course loved the Race Track park with all the rides. I would highly recommend this house for a family vacation or just a group of friends. You would not regret it. Many thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful home. We will for sure be there every year.

We stayed here with 4 other family's which included a total of 24 people and we absolutely loved everything about this house! It's simply beautiful, spacious, clean and the location is perfect. The pool was a highlight for our group. Bedrooms were all spacious but the two masters were amazing! The boys (12 teenagers) loved the third floor. The only issue was one with the pool (not heated) when we first arrived but it was swiftly fixed. And it was just due to the pool Maintenance man being behind because of a storm that hit the night before. Other than that all things were as expected and I only mention it to assure you if there was an issue it will be ratified quickly. Gregg and Margret made this a stress free and easy vacation to plan. We would highly recommend this to anybody.
