About Us

Locally Owned and Operated

My wife and I moved to Destin after vacationing here as a family for many years. We immediately fell in love with this community and the wonderful people within it. Destin truly is a unique place. With world class beaches, amazing shopping and unbelievable state parks, how could you not just fall in love with this incredible place.  When we found out about an incredibly beautiful new development called "The Retreat at Miramar", we just couldn't stay away. We actually fell in love with this community so much, we moved here permanently and live only a few doors down from our vacation rentals, within the same community. 

Our Vacation Rentals:

Truly Feel at Home...Away from Home

Our mission is for you to feel like you are escaping to your perfect getaway beach house. All of the amenities and furnishings have all been hand selected by us and include what we personally would want if we were vacationing here. We take great pride in providing everything you may need for your "escape" to the Emerald Coast. For 2018 we are featuring "The Emerald Dream" but stay in touch because the beginning of 2019 we will feature 2 additional and amazing properties all right here in The Retreat. Each home will feature custom bunk rooms, arcade systems and personalized themes that distiguish and separate our unique properties from everyone else. What makes us different from everyone else? You will meet us upon arrival and get to know a real family for your stay with us. This isn't an "enterprise" which you are just a number on a schedule. We want to welcome you to our community as neighbors for your stay and want you to feel like you belong here the day you arrive.
