Year Purchased: 2019

About the owner: Welcome to Gulf Breeze Vacations! We have three 5b beach houses that are steps to the ocean: Southern Sands, Ocean Retreat Villa & Beach Walk Retreat.

I'm Jan - lover of food, travel, exercise and meeting new people. I am a mom of 22 year old twins and 2 cats. I am originally from the sound, then moved to Atlanta; and now I spend most of my time in Destin.

I look forward to sharing our beach house with you and your family/friends! Our goal is for you to have a memorable vacation! If it is your first time to Destin, we can assist you.

Why this property? I grew up near a beach in the Northeast. Destin is even more beautiful and closeby to visit from Atlanta.

Guestbook comments from the host:

Excellent host. So responsive to any question we had. I highly recommend this property. The pool was fabulous. We will definitely book again!!


Mar 2024

Jan and Jim were fantastic! Our communication was great. When an unexpected problem with the water heater came up they were on it right away and even made one of their other properties available for showers and a hot tub while the water heater was repaired. The house was perfect for our family of 11. Would definitely consider this home again or another place hosted by Jan.


Jan 2024

Our stay was phenomenal, from the rental contract to communication with Jan, the accuracy of the property description. We had a ball and will definitely be renting again. Jan is amazing answered all of our questions and made this one the best vacations we have done. The property is perfect for all age ranges, spacious, and stocked with more amenities than you can imagine.


Sep 2023

Our host Jan was very pleasant and communicative and her place was perfect for our family vacation. Close to the beach and a very unique house and floor plan. Great pool too, with a nice, wrap around porch. We all had a blast and will remember this one as special. Thank you Jan!
