At "Mojito Grande", walk up and be greeted by our comfortable outdoor seating area with a large offset umbrella set amongst palm trees and plants. The nearby hammock calls to you to try it, perfect for those lazy time naps.

This comfy. island-style beach home uses a smart lock for a contactless check-in (no office to visit!) and takes you right into the living room. You'll immediately note the bright colors, the wall-mounted 55" TV, and the Big Joe supersized bean bag w/memory foam which seats 2-3 people in comfort. Dual French doors give you a view of the front deck.

There is a small area by the French doors with our custom beach-style wall clock and a pair of side chairs.

Past this sitting area are the dining area and a fully-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, storage, 2 coffee machines (drip and K-cup), a full-size pantry for your food, and many convenience features. Another set of French doors opens onto the front deck.

Walk through either set of French doors onto the front deck, framed by billowy curtains. There is a 4-seat cafe table for dining al-fresco and a hangingegg chairr, perfect for reading in the fresh gulf breezes.

Step back inside and down the short hall. On the left is BDRM1 with twin beds in a "floor bunk" with stairs (no ladder) -- great for smaller children. There is a closet for storage and a TV for entertainment.

Across the hall is a shared bathroom with a tub/shower combo sporting a dual-head shower. We provide a dispenser with high-quality shampoo, conditioner, and body soap made from natural ingredients and without animal testing. Hand soap and sanitizer are provided at the sink.  See our digital guidebook for details on these amazing products.

Next down the hall is the full laundry with iron and ironing board. We provide some detergent pods, bleach, and softener for your convenience.

BDRM2 has a queen bed with a hybrid memory foam mattress, plenty of clothes storage in the closet and dresser, and an HDTV.

Next is the Master, BDRM3. It has a king bed with a memory foam mattress, a TV, and ensuite bathroom with a dual-head shower. Closet spacea , dresser, and a chest provide ample storage for clothing.

Underneath the home, is a sitting area with a table, chairs, and another hammock. A cornhole set is provided for playtime. In the back of the home is a fire pit area with seating for those cooler evenings. Beach gear is stored in the nearby shed.

The private beach access point is 1 block west. We have paced it off at 160 steps. 

You will need to show proof of occupancy at the gate and will be issued wristbands for your entire stay. They are very strict about this. We email a special copy of your receipt, with the specific information they want, just before your arrival so you will have it handy in your inbox.

Once on the beach. you have access to the area South of the Erosion Control Line (plainly marked).

You can arrange beach services (chairs, umbrellas, wave runners, etc) from the licensed vendor at fees they set. This information and contact info is in the digital guidebook.

Retired from a long and worthwhile career in technology, government, and executive management involving significant domestic and International travel (Chuck). Retired with extensive customer service and hospitality experience and skills as a former Disney cast member (Vicki). Together, we decided to become hosts and manage our own short-term rental. Our first venture was in Gatlinburg, Tennessee - gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was a success. We added a few more in the same area and created 'Our Smoky Mountain Rentals' to handle the listings. Then we decided to add a beach property and settled on Destin, FL area! Not long after we were able to offer a handful of listings in Destin and Miramar Beach as 'Silver Sands Rentals'. We have since consolidated all of our listings under our new brand, 'Remarkable Vacation Rentals'. We have enjoyed every moment of our hosting journey. The delight that comes with knowing that a group of friends, or a family, has made lasting memories in one of our homes is always a thrill, no matter how often it happens. Our guests write such wonder reviews and messages to us describing their experiences and how much they enjoyed their stays. As a result, we get a lot of repeat guests too! Look over our listings and join the hundreds of families and groups who have called one of our Remarkable Vacation Rentals "home" for their visit.
