Welcome to "Soak Up The Sun!"

 This amazing vacation home, "Soak up the Sun", is the sister home to "Good Day Sunshine" with key features like a rooftop terrace providing spectacular 180 degree panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and NINE spacious king suite with private bathrooms! This house is one of the select few in the area that sit less than 100 yards to the shore! Take the elevator all the way to the 400 sq. ft. rooftop deck for miles of water views ALL directions! VERY few houses in Destin have such spectacular views!

Located directly to the south of "Good Day Sunshine", these homes are no more than a 100 steps to the beach walkover, with no streets to cross! So long to industrial noise or heavy traffic! This area of the beach is low density and only services Sandtrap Road. Take a short stroll to the east or west ON the beach to Sandestin and Surf Hut for a beverage or a burger, it's that easy!

Upon entry to the home, conveniently drop your groceries on the huge kitchen island or in the separate pantry. Also just inside the front door is the private elevator for luggage or easy access to the sleeping quarters on the second and third floor. The kitchen is fully equipped with state of the art Kitchen Aid appliances and there are two of everything! Two ovens including a gas stove, two refrigerators, two standard coffee pots, and two dishwashers. There is a Keurig coffee maker as well for those who want to bring their favorite flavorful pods. The modern cabinets provide an abundance of storage. The oversized white quartz island, with seating for 6, is centrally located in the middle of the kitchen with easy access to the dining room and living room. The massive dining room is well-appointed with two full size dining room tables that each can comfortably seat 8 each. There is another seating area in the summer kitchen outdoors with seating for 6 pool side.

The luxury leather sofas and chairs provide seating for 8 in front of the 60” tv. This main living area opens through sliding glass doors to the summer kitchen, pool bath, and oversized outdoor pool and hot tub. The backyard is a thing of beauty and tranquility with a 30’ x 18’  pool, and an elevated hot tub! 

Bedrooms are smartly designed with 9 king suites throughout the second and third floors, each with beautifully appointed private baths. Floor to ceiling tile showers with chrome fixtures and rimless glass doors are key focal points in each bath. There are two bathtubs in the house.
