About the owner: Our very first road trip to Destin was in 1987. We immediately fell in love with the sugar white beaches and pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It was our little secret love nest that consisted mostly of walking on the beach and regular trips to the fish market. Well, Destin is no longer our little secret and we are very passionate about sharing all that it has to offer.
We have traveled extensively and "rented" property for our own family vacations. So we fully understand and appreciate the importance of finding a great location, having easy access to amenities, and a quality home that is clean and well maintained. In 2001 we took the plunge and purchased our first property in Destin and started living "The Dream". Eventually we moved to Destin full-time and started GULF911, a vacation rental management and real estate company.
When we are asked why we manage the homes ourselves, it's a pretty easy answer; Who cares more about a property than the actual owners? Our properties are not "out of sight, out of mind" investments with an out of state owner that is managed by some large cookie cutter property management company. That is far from our approach. We live close to the rental properties and provide a hands-on approach with our guests and the properties. We even conduct our own weekly inspections! We also differ from the "herd" by regularly updating and upgrading our properties to keep the homes up-to-date and current. Since Betty has her Florida Real Estate license, it keeps us abreast of the most current trends in the housing and vacation rental markets.
Whether you are looking to rent a high-quality vacation home or looking to purchase something for your family, we have the experience to help. Please call or email us, we would love to hear from you.

Why this property? This was our very first property purchased in Destin and will always be a sentimental favorite. It's located on the 1st beach street in Emerald Shores and is only 1 home from the pool. So the location cannot be beat. The upstairs bonus room is a great place to park kids, especially when the adults want to have adult time downstairs. Three king bedrooms means family and friends can come too! The central location is a huge bonus as we are close to grocery stores, shopping and of course, the beach!

Guestbook comments from the host:
There are certainly a lot of choices out there, but Bimini Breeze (and all of ) rentals are great vacation homes. The owners are friendly and we have no reason to be burdened with trying to find something else. These homes are top notch for a fair price!
This home is well suited for multiple families. It was very clean upon arrival and was even ready early for us! It was very accommodating and nicely equipped. Extremely close proximity to the beach, pool and restaurants. The beach was very clean and had great security. I would definitely rent this same house again. The owner was great to work with.
Everything was fantastic. If you have never been to Destin before, the house is in a great location. It is close to many great restaurants and attractions. The house was clean and was even ready for us a little early. We had 6 adults and a 2 year old...and we had plenty of space. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the propane grill was a nice added bonus. The house came with two wagons, and tons of additional beach toys. Speaking of the beach, it was a really easy and short walk from the house (2-3 minutes). Having access to the pavilion was great. While the snack shop wasn't open when we were there, it was nice to have the bathrooms so close. We would not hesitate to stay in the house again. We stayed a few extra days in a resort community down the street...it didn't even compare to Bimini Breeze.
This property is without question well worth a look! ( unless a beach view is paramount ). Clean, very functional. The owner was always available, if a minor issue / query arose. Only 4 of us in our party, so needless to say, it felt cavernous, for a 7 day stay. Kitchen had many thoughtful extras, that other rentals may not have. Should we ever need a larger property for occupancy, Bimini Breeze would DEFINITELY be a consideration!!
This is our fifth year to rent this home. Great to see our daughter head straight up to her "flamingo" room. Always nice to see the new items in the home. This year they added a new couch and appliances. Look forward to staying there again next year. Perfect location to beach, pool, dining, and shopping. Thanks again for another awesome week and see ya next year.
This home was very clean upon arrival and we received notification that it was ready early for us! The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice sized. The kitchen and family room was spacious and nicely equipped. The home was close to the beach, pool and restaurants. I would definitely rent this same house again. The owner was great to work with.

The house was great we had kids from age 4 to 10 and the open room with all the beds upstairs is perfect. There was plenty of room for everybody well stocked in a great location. I also like the idea that the TVs were not just Roku they actually had cable.Check in was very easy. Josh was great. Answered all my questions right away. Parking was a challenge, but we got to know our neighbors, which made it very easy to fit all the cars. I think the outside. Could’ve been cleaned up a little better. It was pretty messy look like it hadn’t been swept in a long time.

We are so pleased you enjoyed the home and community. We apologize for the outdoor leaves and palm debris, as we had a pretty good storm and it takes the landscape crew a while to make it through the entire community to get things cleaned up. We appreciate your positive words and welcome you back to this property or one of our other Gulf911 vacation rental properties!
Very nice home. Very clean and well laid out floor plan for multi family use. Family friendly neighborhood. Beautiful and clean pool. Easy walk to beach, Beach very clean and family friendly. Great vacation and no hassle rental process!!!

Thank you for the kind words Keith. We always love to hear that our guests had a great week. Emerald Shores truly is a gem. Please come back to see us soon.Many THANKS from Jay, Betty, and Josh.
Two master suites and large yard made this home perfect for my husband and I and our pet
This was our first stay at Bimini Breeze for snowbird season and we’ll be back next year. It’s within walking distance of two of our favorite restaurants and close to the beach as well. The kitchen is well stocked. Jay was very responsive to all of our needs.

Amber Cove at Emerald Shores is a great family friendly relaxing place to vacation!
We so thoroughly enjoyed our week at 31 Amber Cove in Emerald Shores in Destin! The house was inviting, and the beds were very comfortable. Everything was just as advertised: location, space, beach proximity, as well as proximity to restaurants and things to do. It met and exceeded our expectations! We had one very small issue, and Betty and Jay were quick to take care of it. The neighborhood was so family friendly, and we loved the quiet time after 10pm. That was especially important since we had a 3 and 5 year old with us.

That is fantastic! Glad y'all enjoyed the Bimini Breeze home, the Emerald Shores community, and our private beach and pavilion. We agree with you about the location and wouldn't have purchased 4 properties in Emerald Shores if we weren't sold that it has the total package. Emerald Shores is a hidden gem and I'm glad y'all took advantage of all it has to offer. The Bimini Breeze home was the very first home we purchased back in always great to hear good feedback. Thank you again!
1st Vacation with all of the Children and Grandchildren
2019 was our 1st family vacation with our children and grandchildren. We chose the “Bimini Breeze” for a wonderful Spring Break! We stayed the first week of April and although the weather could have been a little better the house was awesome! Bimini Breeze was a very short walk to the beach and the one of the heated pools was one house walk away. The house was very clean when we arrived. My son was the first to arrive as there was 3 of us that drove down (yes they accommodate 3 vehicles on this property) and he called me once he looked around and said “Mom you did good! This house is awesome! We were extremely happy with the location of the house and everything that was included – plenty of linens, wi-fi, cable, grill and 2 wagons for the beach. I really like the idea of being able to leave food that has been unopened to be donated! The day prior to our departure we had started washing the towels and smelled burning coming from the washer. We unplugged it immediately and I emailed Jay and Betty to advise them but also followed up with a call. Jay was so appreciative that I called to let him know and he immediately set up to get a new washer and dryer. Responses like that prove to me that they care about their properties. I can say that any future vacations in Destin our first pick will be with one of Jay and Betty’s properties. Ketrina
