Description

Located on the beautiful Scenic Highway 98, Serenity Shores is a splendid three-story Gulf-front home that is your front row ticket to the sights and sounds of the Emerald Coast. Serenity Shores was recently updated with brand new kitchen ware to include dishware, glasses, cookware, silverware, etc. The whole has been freshly painted and two new lounge chairs were added to the back deck to sunbathe. All upgrades were done late February 2019.

With 84 windows, the home offers unforgettable views of the Gulf from all three floors. There is also a 349 square-foot pool with splash down fountains, and can be heated for a small fee.
Complimentary beach service (from March 1 to October 31) is included.

1st Floor: Sleeps 4
The upgraded kitchen features an eat-up bar and separate island, while the dining area offers seating for six.
The living area (with queen sofa sleeper) is lined with windows and includes a mounted flat screen television above the fireplace. There is also a queen bedroom that overlooks the pool, as well as a full bath off the hallway.

2nd Floor: Sleeps 10
The second floor master suite offers a king size bed that faces a beckoning private balcony with stunning Gulf views. The adjacent master bathroom includes a steam shower, Jacuzzi tub and his-and-her sinks. Also on the second floor are two bunk rooms, each with an en suite bathroom … perfect for the kids! The bunk beds are twin over full with a trundle.

3rd Floor: Sleeps 2
The third floor master suite features panoramic Gulf views from 12 windows on three sides of the room. French doors lead to a private balcony with one-of-a-kind views. There is also an en suite bathroom with granite-counter-tops.

If you can bring yourself to leave the splendor of Serenity Shores, take a morning stroll to the Beachside Inn Cafe and enjoy breakfast al fresco. Or after taking in the sunset from your beachfront backyard, walk three houses down to 790 on the Gulf for dinner – the flavors of Louisiana cooking, Florida seafood and comfort foods await!

Perfect beach house location! We were looking for a house on the beach with a pool and this rental was exactly what we were looking for. Comfortably sleeps 12 in beds...we didn't use the pull out couch or trundles in the bunk rooms. Living room windows allow a lot of sun in and keep the AC from getting cool so it was somewhat warm in the living room/kitchen area. We spent majority of time on the beach or in the pool so it wasn't really an issue. Pool was great and easy walk down the stairs to the beach was perfect!

We have rented this home close to 10 times and love it. The house is nicely laid out and the location on the beachfront is fantastic (Crystal Beach). Like most rental homes in Destin, the interior isn’t perfect and the kitchen (glasses & utensils) can struggle at times, but the management company and Owner promptly correct any issues that come to their attention. We have rented other homes in Destin but this one is our clear favorite and we have already made another reservation!

This was the perfect house for our trip. There were exactly enough beds for everyone and plenty of bathrooms. I am an interior designer so I am very picky about decor on rentals and this home was beautifully decorated. The pool was gorgeous at night and house is right on the ocean. I would highly recommend this house to anyone visiting Destin. It is also in a great location. There were a couple of minor maintenance issues that were quickly taken care of as soon as they were notified. We loved this house and had a wonderful trip.

This is the 8th time (or more!) that we have stayed here. The house is very nice and the location is even better. We obviously like this house, but if you are expecting top level luxury, you might be disappointed. The interior and kitchen gear are good, but once again, it had only 2 wine glasses in the cabinets (I bought 4 more again). Given all of this, we'll be back in Sept.
Manager response on 2018-02-27 - Response from Destin Getaways Vacation Rentals
Dear Guest, We will make sure that you have all the wine glasses you need next time! We enjoy hosting you year after year. This house is a beautiful beach front home. The abundance of large windows are perfect for beach front views from the living room. The deck is brand new with a brand new grill. The house is well maintained on the inside as well despite a 3 star rating for property condition. Serenity Shores is your beach front home away from home. Come sit back relax and enjoy a beach vacation. Thank You, Destin Getaways

Then home overall is nice, but there are areas that need improvement. The outside of the home, to include stucco, garage door, front door steps & windows all need to be cleaned and or painted. The 1st floor bedroom has a peculiar smell. Also, the 1st floor shower needs to be updated (the paint is peeling off the doors and the floor of the shower looks dirty).

It was a beautiful house on the beach. Had some maintenance issues. Beds were in need of replacement, downstairs bedroom very warm, upstairs toilet kept braking and took 3 visits to fix. Some ants inside of house and windows facing beach very dirty. The house was beautiful and I would rent again if maintenance issues were taken care of.

The house provided a wonderful location with direct access to the beach and plenty of room for our family of 10. Cooking materials are limited notably skillets and pots, but the kitchen is a good size. Having said that, there is only six chairs for the dining table and three at the bar so we were always one place short if we all wanted to eat together. We were very disappointed with parts of the cleanliness of the house. The top of the refrigerator was very dirty and sticky and the tops of all of the pictures and mirrors were very dusty. The ceiling fans were also very dusty and, in some cases, dust was actually caked on some of the paddles. When we inquired at the rental office, we were told that those areas were only cleaned at the beginning and end of the rental season. So if you want a totally clean property you better rent it at the beginning of the rental season. We did not have a working umbrella by the pool as shown in the picture; there were two broken ones in the garage. We reported it and the umbrella was replaced the next day.

Everything went smoothly the house is in a wonderful location and close to everything you may need. The house is showing ware and needs to have a lot of maintenance done to it. The back porch needs a makeover. The Doors are hard to open and routine maintenance.

Rented Serenity Shores for a girls weekend / bachelorette party. The house was central to everything you could want, and was perfect for a girls getaway! We loved the multi-level views of the gulf, and the private pool was a plus as well.

Our only concerns were the lack of bath towels in the house for the amount of bedrooms. Other than that, not a complain in the world about this lovely home!

Great family home!

Fantastic location and accommodations. When we arrived the A/C was not working properly. We made a phone call and maintenance was out within an hour and had it up and running. Also, the railing on the deck was loose, but they came out quickly and repaired that. So pleased with the response time. It was a perfect house for our family of 12. We will be back!

overall, we had a good experience. the property was in a good location. the beach never felt over crowded. it was wonderful to have the beach literally out the back door. it was nice to have 2 chairs and an umbrella every day set-up. the house was nice and clean. it was true to the online pics (some houses are made to look much better online). the only issues we had - a plumbing problem in one of the upstairs bathroom, the pool heater/motor had to be fixed, the pool furniture was dry-rotted. when those things were reported, someone came to the house quickly to service it. once the pool heater was fixed, we used the pool daily. a recommendation: a cheap fridge in the garage for drinks. just not enough space in the 1 fridge for food and drinks.

Dear Guest, Thank You for reviewing your stay at Serenity Shores. The pool furniture will be replaced for future guest. I will pass on your recommendation to the owner.

Serenity Shores was a beautiful, spacious home. We had plenty of room to have our children and grandchildren stay and enjoy the beach, pool, and home. The kitchen was very nice and roomy. The home was nicely decorated and felt very welcoming. Although the weather was not very cooperative, it was still nice to wake up to the sounds of the ocean and the view from each balcony was magnificent!!! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

This home gave us the space that we were looking for for our family
Excellent location!
Would like to see a king bed downstairs instead of queen
Otherwise, a great home!

The perfect family getaway!!

We had 4 families with kids of various ages- 1 to 9 years old and this home was perfect!! Great beach, great service from 790 next door (yes you can order food and drinks on beach if you want) and a fantastic bistro/coffee shop to walk to with live music. Kiddos love thier soft serve ice cream!! Only about 1 mile from publix grocery and destin Commons- location can't be beat. We used the pool everyday with the little ones - will return to this house again!!

Fantastic Location

We loved our stay. the house had everything we needed and with 6 children, being right on the beach was just what we were looking for. The private pool was an even bigger hit.

This house was amazing to have a small 50 person wedding on the beach. Loved it!!! There was plenty of room for everyone. The only thing I would change was the big round coffee table that we were unable to move for the reception. I would advise something that is easy to remove if space is needed. Other than that we LOVED it! Kids swam in the pool and chased ghost crabs at night with a flash light. Highly recommend this place!
