MARGARITA VILLA B is our ground floor unit of our Destiny Beach Villas duplex. It's a splendid accommodation for your stay, and includes a bunk bed room for the kids. Only 3 steps needed to enter the home.

Just 200 steps to the beach, with a tunnel under the road to avoid crossing traffic!

Swim in the emerald waters of the Gulf, hop the waves, sunbathe in the Florida sun, or play in the powder-like white sands of America's #1 beach. There is even a beach playground for the kids and a public bath-house/restrooms. With a license, you can surf fish on the beach!

Just 50 steps to the pool -- heated at Thanksgiving & 12/18-3/31 (HOA may adjust dates w/out notice for low demand or weather). The pool area includes restrooms w/showers, outdoor rinse station, and plenty of seating. Pool hours are 8am-10pm. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No lifeguard on duty.

For early risers, the beach sunrises can be magnificent. Otherwise, be sure to catch one of our famous sunsets.

Work remotely, attend virtual meetings, or participate in online school with our high-speed Internet (1gb Cox Cable) using the latest mesh Wi-Fi technology.

MARGARITA VILLA B has 2 bedrooms; a Master w/ensuite bathroom, and a 2nd bedroom w/2 twin/full bunk beds that kids just LOVE! A second full bath is in the hall.

The home has a well-equipped kitchen and a living area with HD Roku TV. It's an ideal layout for a family vacation, a quick getaway, or a friend-cation.

Tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished, each bedroom and the living area has ceiling fans and a Roku HDTV; just bring your logins from your favorite streaming services or cable/satellite provider. Roku offers a ton of free TV and movie options as well.

The rear deck of MARGARITA VILLA B overlooks Four Prong Lake, with water so clear that you can see the bottom. Watch the waterfowl, fish, and the myriad of turtles that live in the lake. There is a lakeside walking path. Swimming/boating/fishing in the lake is not allowed.

MARGARITA VILLA B has its own water heater and an HVAC system with smart thermostat and ceiling fans for your maximum comfort. With its own entrance and private lakefront deck, there are no shared areas.

—— HOME LAYOUT ——

A floor plan of MARGARITA VILLA B can be found in the photos.

Enter into the living area which extends to the kitchen/dining area. To the right of the kitchen is a hall with laundry center, bathroom with tub/shower, and the bedroom w/bunk beds and closet. At the end of the hall is the Master bedroom with king bed, closet, and ensuite bath with a tub/shower.

Both bedrooms open onto the front porch, with chairs and a bench for enjoying your morning coffee or after-dinner beverage.

From the living room, exit onto the lakefront deck with outdoor dining table.

If noise levels exceed acceptable levels, you will be contacted. These can also protect against false reports. They record noise levels, not actual audio.

There are actively recording video cameras outside the front of the home. There are no interior views.

"When arriving for our stay we found the home clean & very welcoming. The kitchen had what we needed to cook several meals while there. Several spices supplied & a crockpot which we were happy to have. Before our arrival we were notified that the above stove microwave was not working but a new counter top microwave was purchased so we would have one to use for our stay. Ample bath towels & beach towels were supplied plus a couple of lap size blankets to wrap up in while watching TV. The beds were very comfy & the pillows were great. We loved the location, just a short walk to the beach. Totally enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very quick to respond to any questions we had"

"While the weather was not the best, that certainly is no reflection on the hosts. Chuck and Vicki were tremendous and the place was immaculate. It was so close to the beach it should be advertised as beachfront. We found it to be easier than some condos on the beach we have rented before. The pool is perfect for the community and was heated nicely. The real gem here is the lakefront location. Its gorgeous. We couldn't have been happier with our choice and hope to be back. Thank you Chuck and Vicki!"

"We had the best stay at Margarita Villa B. The location was absolutely perfect, just a short walk to the beach which was perfect for my pregnant wife & our 3 year old. There is public parking right across the street if you need to drive for any reason as well. The pool is conveniently located to the house. The deck overlooking the lake was perfect for having our morning coffee. We absolutely loved that the hosts left turtle food, our 3 year old looked forward to feeding them every morning. We appreciated the abundance of beach toys, chairs & the beach cart! It made life a whole lot easier for us. We did bring a few beach toys, but could have gotten away with not bringing anything at all! The kitchen was well stocked with all of the essentials such as coffee pods, dishwasher pods, snacks for arrival & all of your basic cooking seasonings.. etc. We are so pleased with our stay, and we will definitely be back! Our vacation was nothing short of perfect. Thank you to Chuck & Vicki for being such great hosts! We look forward to checking out your smoky mountain rentals as well."

The turtles and food to feed them were a pleasant surprise. The added touches in the house were so appreciated: Coffee pods, sugar, salt/pepper, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry pods, hand soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner. There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels... and the beach accessories were perfect for our family (chairs, umbrella, toys) ! The pool and deck are lovely, providing a quiet and clean place to swim and relax. The beach and beautiful water was just as advertised- a short walk away. There is a wagon at the house to haul your beach goodies, but we found it just as easy to carry our own chairs. Thanks for sharing your home with us!"
