Stunning architecture and carefully manicured Florida palms greet you when you arrive at Carpe Diem. Step through the entryway and find yourself on the first floor with a kitchenette including a sink, a large beverage cooler, microwave, and 3 guest bedrooms. Two of those bedrooms come with their own ensuite bathrooms. The additional bedroom on the first floor includes bunks making it the designated kid room! You are sure to hear lots of laughs coming from this room. This bedroom has access to a hall bathroom. Head upstairs and enter the main floor of this grand, ultra-modern home. The living room and kitchen flow seamlessly together, allowing the conversation to carry on whether you’re preparing meals or just relaxing. Not finished with the beautiful sunset just yet? Try kicking your feet up and relaxing while enjoying the gentle Gulf breeze on the gorgeous wrap around balcony just outside the living room! The large dining table is perfect for delicious meals with friends and family. You will find an additional spacious bedroom with ensuite bathroom on this floor.

When you make your way up to the third floor to unwind in the evening, you’ll find two master suites and a second balcony with views of the crystal-clear water. Both master suites feature their own private bathroom with walk-in showers and whirlpool tubs. The main master bedroom even has its own sitting area with a small office area and a wet bar, including sink, small refrigerator, and microwave, perfect for an after-dinner cocktail!

Located directly across from the beach, you’re just steps away from the soft, sugar-white sand and mesmerizing emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico. Or leave the sand behind and soak up some Florida sunshine at Carpe Diem’s private pool. Guests at this home also enjoy access to the Destiny by the Sea amenities, including a large pool and hot tub. You’ll also find that this home is close to delicious restaurants and premier shopping in Destin; just two of the things you’ll love to do on vacation.
