Amazing Vacation Home

We are discerning travelers (read: high maintenance and picky) and we were very impressed with Derby Dunes. The house is beautiful, clean and well stocked. The house is very family friendly and the location is perfect. We cannot wait to return!

Absolutely Perfect Vacation!

My parents, two sisters, their spouses, myself, my spouse and four children went for four nights and five days. We have the best week. Everything was very clean and neat. The size of the house was very accommodating for our family. The kids loved the playroom on the third floor. The common area was very spacious. The house was only a block away from our favorite pool in Rosemary. The beach was absolutely breathtaking. Invited Home was extremely easy to work with. We cannot wait until next year!

Complete Guide to Emerald Coast
So white. So bright. So pristine. And so serene. So get to these hidden, Caribbean-like Gulf sands, already. And don’t forget those walking shoes either. That’s because this stretch of Florida all along Highway 30A, is tremendously ...pedestrian friendly. And most of InvitedHome’s properties are easily accessible to anywhere on the Emerald Coast. By foot. By bike. By pedicab or by trike. The unparalleled shoreline and unique villages are never far from reach no matter what mode of transportation you take. (see less)

Seafood
The Best Seafood Dives in Florida
November 11, 2016 Giant open windows provide expansive views of white sand and emerald green water. The Back Porch takes pride in popularizing amberjack, a firm white fish seldom found on menus before the restaurant began featuring it in sandwiches. (We like the ..."angry" version, with spicy mayo.) Also check out the fish-, shrimp-, and crabmeat-filled gumbo, and the tart Key lime pie. (see less)
Comment There's no better way to experience seafood than on a coastal town. Plan to visit the Emerald Coast locations listed after a long day at the ...beach. (see less)

January 30, 2017 I’ve lived in Florida as a kid and adult, and now that I’m a Georgia resident I can’t resist returning at least once a year.

Retire
The 12 Best Places to Retire in the U.S.
November 21, 2016 We dream of the day when we can put our out-of-office notification on forever and settle down in the sort of place previously reserved for vacations. But where to go? Condé Nast Traveler surveyed readers ages 68 and older about their favorite ...places in the U.S.—where they live, where they play, where the city is safe and the locals friendly. Not surprising, the sunny beaches of Florida and California made the cut—but where else? Click through to decide where you'd like to hang your hat...or, more accurately, park your vintage convertible. (Hey, you deserve it.) Plus: Vote for your favorite hotels, cities, airlines, and more in the 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards survey. (see less)
