Breaking news: Manatees were recently spotted right behind the Sea Oats Motel in sunny Destin Florida!
Earlier this week, a group of manatees were seen swimming in a characteristic V-shaped formation, in the crystal clear coastal waters off Destin Florida, along a stretch of beach near the original seaside landmark, the Sea Oats Motel.
Built facing beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and our gorgeous, white sand dunes, the Sea Oats Motel, situated on a quiet part of Old Highway 98, is away from the noise and crowds of Emerald Coast Parkway, ideal for the traveler who prefers a more laid back vacation, and yet still only a moment away from all the area shopping, dining and entertainment that Destin is known for.
Our units, which include spacious living areas with cozy furniture, fully equipped kitchens, large modern bathrooms, sumptuous bedding and private balcony overlooking the Gulf, are mere steps away from a coastal paradise offering endless indoor and outdoor activities.

Besides our resident manatees, other coastal wildlife your family may see from your room or when relaxing on the shore, are dolphins, sharks, a wide variety of fish, and bird life from pelicans to bald eagles. Be sure to catch one of our Technicolor sunsets from the intimacy of your private patio, and watch the fishing vessels roll in with the tide as they head home to port.
After the beach, swing by our gorgeous beachside pools, surrounded by our lush, semi tropical foliage and fragrant flowers, or work up an appetite on lighted tennis courts.
