We have been coming to Emerald Coast/Destin with our 7 children since 1989. As you can tell we are very pro family! We purchased The Magnificat for this reason! We needed space primarily bedroom and bathrooms for everyone to be happy including the spouses of our children and future grandchildren. We had a very difficult time finding a home on the beach with lots of bedrooms on the beach! We rented condos, homes and hotel rooms over the years from Navarre Beach to Santa Rosa Beach. We are very particular and family type owners knowing what Renters are looking for! After searching real estate properties for over 7 years, we knew we found the perfect place for our family vacation or long weekend getaways to invite our friends to the beach!

The townhouse is amazing and perfect for families. It has lots of space for multiple families to share. The house was clean up to date and well maintained. Our family loved it! It is directly on the beach, The beach is beautiful with clear water and white soft sand. We enjoyed having Thanksgiving there with our family. The house provide the cooking essentials we needed to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for a huge family. Management responded quickly and was always there if needed. I highly recommend this location.

This property met and exceeded all our expectations! The home is lovely, spacious, well-equipped and in a very quiet and peaceful setting. Right on the beach, just steps away from the white sands and emerald water! Spectacular! Our family of 14 had more than enough room and we all absolutely loved it!!! Can't think of enough good things to say about it! You will not regret staying here. It has spoiled me for anyplace else!
Thank you, David and Laurie, we will return again!

This is a beautifully decorated, comfortable house on the beach. Location for walking to restaurants, but yet not having crowds was excellent. The location for driving to shopping was also prime. There are three levels of decks and we even saw dolphins one morning. The kids loved the TV's in each of the bunks of the bunk room. Owner was great to work with and very helpful if any questions.

The house was beautiful, spacious, and well decorated. It was equipped with all you need to just arrive and unwind. It was perfectly located for family fun and relaxation directly on the beach. The views of the sunrise and sunset were amazing!! The owners were great to assist when needed and very friendly.

This was a fabulous location for a small team meeting. Very close to the outlets, yet in a low-traffic neighborhood. The beach was perfect and uncrowded. Check in and check out was extremely easy and owners were very responsive. The house is clean, beautiful, and looks exactly like the photos. I will definitely return to this location again, as soon as I can find another excuse for a meeting!

This awesome house has it all! The beautiful beach and the ocean are right at your back deck. The bedrooms are very spacious, very comfortable and relaxing. The house was perfect for our large group of 16 ladies and has a well equipped kitchen for cooking. The extra den on the first level was great giving us plenty of room for entertaining and watching the Olympics! Thank you for sharing your home with us! We've found the perfect place and will be back for many years to come!!

The property is located on the most perfect area of the beach in Destin. The walkway to the ocean is less than 20 ft, you could not be closer to the water! There are 3 levels of decks overlooking the water giving the most relaxing experience you could ask for! The property was clean and the layout was great for our smaller group or larger groups, there are plenty of beds for a big group, but if you have a smaller group, don't discount this property because the location cannot be beat! The kitchen was complete with all the tools you would need for staying in and cooking, including multiple blenders and coffee pots. But the location is within very short distance to many great eating places, so you have the best of both worlds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property to any beach lover!

This beautiful home is perfectly situated right on the beach - it felt like our own personal oasis. There is no fuss with getting on/off the beach because there is a short path from the back door straight to the beach. The house is also conveniently located near restaurants, shops, etc.
The house is beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and has plenty of space for large groups. The view from the master bedroom is overlooking the ocean and just gorgeous! And the spacious balconies allow everyone to enjoy the beach views. I spent an entire morning snuggled up on the balcony! It was a perfect getaway - we didn't want to leave!
