About the property

Welcome home to Sea Philosophy - where our philosophy is to welcome you here to make a lifetime of memories at our vacation home.  Location is everything here at Sea Philosophy  - it is just steps away from the private beach where you will enjoy your included beach service!  Our recently renovated home offers spacious living areas and comfortable sleeping quarters as well as a stunning relaxation-ready backyard oasis with a private pool surrounded by chaises, and even a Tommy Bahama rolling cooler for poolside refreshments so you never have to leave poolside.
One of our favorite areas for creating memories is around our huge custom kitchen island, with seating for the whole group for snacking, chatting, games, or meals shared with family and friends. This is just the beginning to our chef's kitchen with lots of space for cooking and a supply of kitchen essentials along with our stainless steel appliances ready for you to work your culinary magic!
The kitchen opens up into the living room for a fully shared experience whether snacking or relaxing, everyone is together and there's space for all to gather.  
The main floor also houses the laundry room with large washer and dryer along with additional laundry needs such as an iron and ironing board.  There's also a full bathroom with a toilet, shower, and roomy vanity to store all of your toiletries on the first floor for your convenience.
The Guest Bedroom on the main floor features a King bed, adjacency to the bathroom, and a flat screen TV.  Enjoy your view of the backyard oasis from here!
Upstairs, you'll find the Master Bedroom and the remaining two bedrooms, each featuring a handmade barnwood King bed with the exception of our bunk room - great for the kiddos to enjoy talking, reading, and resting.  The Master Bedroom features an en suite full bathroom and balcony for your enjoyment with coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evenings.  The second King suite is also outfitted with a King bed, comfortable upscale linens and a flat screen TV.  Our bunkroom has custom built-in bunk beds on either side and features all full-size beds, allowing up to 8 to enjoy this fun room!  Each bunk has it's own private reading light and there's also a TV in this room.  Kids can look out over the backyard oasis each night dreaming of their next day splashing in the sparkling pool.  Another bathroom on the second floor features fun decor with contemporary fixtures featuring a corrugated metal shower for that beach cottage feel.
Free Fun Included Every Day!  To enhance your vacation experience, Salt Water Vacations includes Xplorie, which means free admissions every day of your stay to some of the most popular attractions Destin has to offer!  You can enjoy a daily value of up to $580 in free fun!
This home requires that there is no smoking inside the home. 
For an additional nightly fee, pool heat can be arranged from September - May (please inquire with our reservations agents)
Just off of Scenic Highway 98, this home is across the street from a public beach access and just a few blocks from your own private beach access and includes two beach service setups for you to enjoy the white sand and emerald green waters.  Additionally, we provide more beach gear and a cart to roll it in to make it a seamless trip to get those toes in the sand.
There's a reason the Crystal Beach is a perennial fave for our guests - it's pedestrian friendly with a wide sidewalk for walking, running, and biking and also is within walking distance to some of our favorite local eats such as Camille's - a fantastic eatery for guests and locals alike.  Looking to shop?  Great news - you can head to the Destin Commons just several blocks away or drive a few more minutes and hit the Silver Sands Outlets.
Parking at Sea Philosophy is free and allows for up to three vehicles in our off-street driveway and parking area.

Beautiful Home - Fantastic Location - Exceptional Service



This is the second year that we've stayed in Sea Philosophy and we will be back again. The house is perfect for our family of nine - plenty of beds and a beautiful pool. The kitchen layout (giant island) and the updated appliances were a plus too. The beach access is about two blocks away & having the chairs/umbrellas set up for us when we got there daily was a huge bonus. We had a slight issue with the picnic table outside, but the staff responded immediately & even brought a brand new one the next day. They couldn't have been nicer or more professional if they had tried. It really was an exceptional experience. Thank you to the team at Salt Water Vacations for a wonderful week!!

Nice Time



Service was nice, was allowed to delay stay due to hurricane and pool heater was turned on right after we requested. Had small issue w keypad lock but when we called we got an answer and resolved quickly. Very close to beach, didnt need the bikes we rented. Very nice layout and kitchen, very clean bathrooms. Beds were way too soft for our liking and couldn't adjust thermostat. Would stay again.

Family Beach Trip



Our family of 9 (Grandma, 2 daughters and their spouses and children) just had the best vacation in Destin @Sea Philosophy. This was our 7th annual trip and our favorite house so far! The weather was perfect, which always helps. The size, location (short and beautiful walk to the beach- never any complaints from adults or kids), very private pool and house amenities made this trip so easy and relaxing. Location was just perfect- beautiful neighborhood, stores close by, too. We enjoyed the backyard so much, that we cooked in more than half the nights we were there! Side note- best meal with freshest seafood was at Camilles, which was also just a short walk from the house. Having a small baby, the quietness upstairs was great for napping while mom and dad enjoyed the pool. The house came with nearly everything you needed. Beds were clean and comfy- we’re clean freaks and loved the quilts with each bed versus and old comforter- so nice. There were hooks everywhere for hanging towels. We really enjoyed the large island, and spent lots of time sitting there together- eating, playing games, and just talking. Such a lovely trip- thanks! Just a few things need attention- downstairs bathroom sink clogged. Pool light didn’t work. Thanks again for the best trip and vacation home!
