At HomeAway, making memorable vacations with friends and family a reality is what we do best. That’s why we recently teamed up with our friends at the TODAY Show to give away three trips to one of our most popular HomeAway destinations. Live on air, host Sheinelle Jones and country singer Trace Adkins gave away two trips to Florida during the popular “Freebie Friday” segment. They surprised two fans from the crowd out on the TODAY plaza, and gave one more amazing Florida getaway to a viewer at home.
The winners each received a three-night stay at an incredible HomeAway in Florida, with airfare for up to four people included. HomeAway picked out three gorgeous homes for the winners to kick back and relax in – all just steps away from the beautiful white sand beaches of the Florida panhandle.
Read on for a look inside the luxurious vacation homes, all managed by our friends at 360 Blue.
This extravagant home sits directly on beautiful Miramar Beach in Destin. With an all-white exterior and huge windows throughout, this expansive home is airy and bright. The kitchen features a large island, gorgeous marble countertops and plenty of seating, making it the perfect place to cook and gather after a long day in the sun. Duck outside and you’ll find yourself on a massive patio facing the gulf, complete with infinity pool. 138 Beach Drive can sleep up to 31 – so fill it up and stay for only $86 a person per night. Rent it here.
2. Seagrove Beach
This palatial pad has panoramic views of the crystal-clear waters of Seagrove Beach. Entirely decked out in Restoration Hardware furniture and décor, “Sarayu” has five masters and three additional rooms for all the space you could ever need. An open floorplan and beautiful wood paneled walls finished in white give the house an upscale yet beachy feel. Feel like a swim? The two-story deck and private pool overlooking the ocean can help with that. One thing is certain: the contest winners will be speechless when they see this place. Sarayu sleeps 26, rent it here for only $87 a person per night.
3. Rosemary Beach
“11 Heaven” is a beautiful four-story home located in the quaint but lively coastal town of Rosemary Beach. This bright home is decorated almost exclusively in shades of ivory and blue, mimicking the ocean waters and white sand beaches that are just steps from the house. A heated pool and spacious rooftop deck with incredible views allows guests to relax and take in the scenery. The perfect place for multiple families to vacay together, 11 Heaven features a separate carriage house with bunk beds plus a king. At just $124 a person per night, you and 15 others can make yourselves at home in “heaven”. Rent it here.
