Not to mention, the private pool can be heated for an additional fee so you can enjoy it no matter what time of year you visit the emerald coast.

This home would allow guests to enjoy privacy with their immediate family between the multiple floors and separate guest house. However, it also features an open floor plan to encourage quality time with loved ones. The guest quarters provide an excellent space for a new family or even to host the teenagers of your crew. It features a separate living space and kitchenette.

As you arrive, discover the main living room and kitchen on the first floor of the home. The living room includes two seating areas to ensure each guest can curl up on the couch while enjoying family movie night on the large TV. The kitchen is a dream and comes equipped with stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, and even a 4-burner gas range stove. The home was furnished with a large group in mind. This shows in the grand dining table chosen to fill the space. The luxurious décor doesn’t stop there. The home features hardwood floors throughout, natural finishes, and cool coastal colors. Head out to the patio to find lounge chairs, a spacious pool deck and private pool, and the boardwalk leading you to the beach.

Continue exploring your home away from home and make your way up to the second floor. Most of the bedrooms and bathrooms are located here. The second floor also boasts beautiful Gulf views and a private balcony. Trust us when we say, you won’t want to miss a sunset from this balcony. Savor the beautiful deep orange sunsets over the glistening Gulf from the privacy and comfort of your rental. It doesn’t get better than that! Each bedroom continues the coastal theme with plush bedding and beautiful art in every room.

The entire third floor of Not the Norm is dedicated to the primary suite. The primary bathroom is incredible and even comes with a garden tub situated with a Gulf view! This tranquil space ensures you rest easy and wake up in paradise each day of your trip.

There are so many ways to savor the Florida sunshine when you stay at Not the Norm! Spend your morning on the pool deck, sipping coffee, and watching as your kids kickstart their day with a swim in the private pool. Then head to the beach to spend the afternoon building sandcastles and walking the shoreline. Each evening, cruise through the area on the bikes and enjoy the coastal breeze.

You may never need to leave your rental; however, we always encourage guests to explore the Destin area. There are so many family-friendly activities and seafood restaurants to try during your getaway. Utilize our Gulf Coast Guide when planning your stay.
