Although the beaches of the Gulf Coast might be what bring you to our corner of the world, there’s something about the memories that are made on the porches and patios of vacation homes. This list of homes will help give you a head start on finding your perfect rental with ample outdoor space so you can enjoy laughter, make memories, and soak up all of the oceanside atmosphere you can only find on the coast.
Located in the Destiny by the Sea community, Schmidts N’ Grins boasts TWO spacious porches and a patio that leads to a private pool and hot tub. This 5-bedroom and 7-bathroom home is perfect if you are enjoying the Gulf Coast with a large group.
On the first floor you’ll find the patio and private pool are just a step outside the living room with multiple seating areas and a dining area. The second floor is considered the main living area with a second living room and just as on the first floor, right outside the living room is a beautiful porch with space to have your morning coffee, sit with friends or even cook a meal on the grill. On the third floor, you’ll find two master bedrooms, two baths, kitchenette and you guessed it, another porch to soak in all the incredible views of the coast!

Enjoy your time off the sandy beach and relax by the pool, or grill up some dinner on the first floor patio. The second floor has three master suites, large bathrooms and each suite has its own private balcony so you can sneak away and enjoy get some quiet time. On the third floor you’ll find more suites, a common area, a bunk room, and an Executive King Suite that leads to a second 1,700 sq. ft balcony with room for private moments, deep conversation, and time for much needed relaxation.
