Charming furniture & decor
Need a break from the sun? The cozy living spaces are perfect for watching TV or curling up with your favorite book.
In the main house, you’ll find a comfy living room with two large couches and a fireplace on the main floor. While you certainly won’t need the fireplace in the summer, it’s nice to have on a cool winter evening. The main house also has a smaller sitting room at the front of the house with another sofa and beautiful natural light.
When it comes to entertainment, you’ll find smart HDTVs with access to app streaming services using your own credentials to watch your favorite movies or the big games. The living room also has a cool Polycade arcade game console, free for our guests, which is always a favorite among the younger travelers!
--KITCHEN & DINING--
Between all the excitement of beaches, shopping, and amusement parks, you’re bound to work up an appetite! This property includes not one, but TWO full kitchens - one in the main house and one in the carriage house.
In the main house, the kitchen features stainless steel appliances, including a gas stove, oven, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and toaster. The cabinets are stocked with cookware, dishes, and glasses. Dine in style in the main home’s dining room, which seats at least 8. Or, head outside to the back patio or an upstairs balcony for a meal with a side of gulf breezes.
The carriage house has an eat-in kitchen with a dining table for 4, which is ideal for a quick breakfast or a snack after a dip in the pool.
The main house and carriage house combined can comfortably sleep up to 23 guests in 7 private bedrooms and additional beds in the bunk room. Every bed features pillow-top mattresses, hypoallergenic pillows, and super soft Mascioni sheets. We take sleep seriously!

There’s plenty of places to soak up the Florida sun and gulf breezes without even leaving the property. Just behind the main house is a charming back patio with a private pool, BBQ, and sun loungers. With a private outdoor space that’s so convenient, you might not even want to go to the beach! Please note the beach wagon in the photo is not included.
On the upper floors of both the main house and the carriage house, wraparound balconies provide nice places to sit and breathe in the salty air as you drink your morning coffee or wind down with a sunset cocktail.

About the owner: Hi, Alex and the D. Alexander Family here.
We’re destination enthusiasts who are passionate about creating memorable l experiences. Through countless travel experiences, we discovered that adventure, exploration, and discovery with friends and family significantly improves when homes are designed and tailored to groups and households. We found that the consistencies and high standards we often saw in hotels were huge factors in the enjoyment of any getaway, vacation, extended retreat, or your second home (or as we like to say - to live, play and work).
Simply put, we realized traditional vacation homes often lacked the standards of a hotel that travelers love. Enter the creation of D. Alexander: a boutique hospitality brand that delivers unrivaled quality, consistency and value to Group Destination Seekers.
We strive to deliver unparalleled standards across our vibrant portfolio of Destination Homes, all focused on providing our guests with quality, consistency and value throughout their stay. Guests know what they are getting. The pictures and details you find online are what you see when you walk into the home.
High quality products where they count the most. You can expect to find spa-quality care products, Italian luxury linens, bedding, and towels, and high-end mattresses in each of our homes.
Reliable technology. You can count on having strong and consistent WiFi, smart locks, and smart TVs when booking a D. Alexander Destination Home.
We created the D. Alexander home-hotel collection to raise the bar in the short-term rental industry and believe in providing luxury and standards within the comforts of a home.
Enjoy your stay!
Alex and the D. Alexander Family
