Timothy Taylor is the founder, owner and President of Ocean Reef. He founded Ocean Reef with his wife, Becky, in 1982. Tim and Becky met in Waikiki, where he was in the hotel business after attending the University of Hawaii College of Business Administration. They enjoyed diving and fishing together in Hawaii until Tim received an offer from Sandestin Resort. The spectacular fishing and diving opportunities of the Destin region made it an easy change. Seven years later, Tim and Becky had the opportunity to start a business featuring vacation rentals and real estate sales– Ocean Reef. Over 30 years, Ocean Reef has grown from a small, two-person business venture to one of the largest vacation rental and real estate companies on the emerald coast. Today, Ocean Reef employs 12 real estate agents and 30 full time rental agents. In vacation season, the staff can swell to over 250 people. Ocean Reef recently opened a second office located between Alys and Rosemary Beach on scenic hwy 30-A.

Established in 1982, Ocean Reef Vacation Rentals and Real Estate hosts three strategic locales to serve you. Our corporate headquarters is situated just outside of the Destin city limits in Miramar Beach, Florida, and perched in a central locale on Emerald Coast Parkway - in between the Silver Sands Premium Outlets and the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort. From this home base, we operate both our vacation rental and real estate sales companies. Although two separate entities, there is considerable synergy between both, enabling our real estate team to provide you as a buyer or seller unparalleled insight in investment opportunities, and access to a wealth of current and previous traveler communications and statistics.
