Description of the Miramar Beach vacation home rental
Welcome to Summer Dreams!

We are located in a private community called Emerald Waters Village in Miramar Beach, FL. We have a private beach entrance less than a block away. Our home was designed to hold several families at one time. We have a unique floor plan that gives plenty of room to spread out. This 3 story (5,000 square feet) home is packed with 7 bedrooms, including 4 adult bedrooms (two of these being master suites). The master suites include huge showers and large tubs for you to relax and enjoy. We worked closely with a professional designer to pick furniture and colors that brought out the beauty of the home as much as possible. Our home was designed to have a Mediterranean beach feel to it. The pictures don't do the house justice as our guests always tell us.

Feel free to call Gregg day or night with any questions you may have. I want to make your rental experience as easy as possible.

The first floor is designed for entertaining. The 10' ceilings and open floor plan makes everyone feel like that have plenty of room to hang out and visit. The family room is holds a large L shaped couch and chairs. There are also an extra set of two chairs as well and an additional round table and 4 chairs. The gourmet kitchen has everything you could ask for. There is also a large dining table for eating and socializing with friends. There is also a full laundry room with washer and dryer.

We love families with little kids. We will have cribs in the master suites and a high chair is always available. That's why we put the kids rooms and play area on the 3rd floor. That way Mom and Dad don't have to worry about the kids getting outside without you knowing.

The private pool just off the back of the house is the perfect size for kids to have fun. It even includes 3 water jets coming out of the ground! The large covered porch is perfect for those that need to stay out of the sun but still want to hang out with your friends. The gas grill is just off the porch on a larger pergola that overlooks the pool.

Area Information
Our home is in a 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 deeded entrance.

Both Silver Sands and Destin Commons outlet malls are short drives from our home.

We have over 4 beautiful golf courses within a 10 minute drive from our home as well.

We are near quite a few restaurants as well. Famous Pompano Joe's is only 1/4 mile away. We walk there all the time.

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

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.

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 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 !

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 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.

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.

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!
