Guest Reviews

Great Family Home!!! by LACHEL FONTENOT 11/19/2018
We loved this property!! Traveled with Parents, Husband, Sibling and 5 children ages 4-15. The house has enough space for everyone to spread out and have their own privacy. We were there in November so the weather wasn’t warm enough to hang on the beach but we did go one day and it is about a 3 min walk . The pool is across the street. The house is equipped with everything you might need to cook... this is a great home and I highly recommend it!!!
Wonderful/Spacious House, Needs a Few Improvements by Doris Simonis 10/26/2018
This house was beautiful and very spacious. It's easy to gather a large group together or get away for some "me" time. It's pretty close to the beach, but NOT just "one block away" as you advertised in the first sentence of the listing. Check the map! Most fit people could walk there easily, but some grandparents may need to drive. It's closer to a mile than a block.
The huge shower in one of the king size suites definitely needs "grab bars" for the grandparents. The floor is slippery and the walls have nothing to hold onto. Old people fall down sometimes! If you suggest this rental for "Grands" then all bathrooms should have grab bars.
Though the kitchen was well equipped in general, we thought the leasing agent was stingy about several things: We found only a couple of thin dish towels that were soon soaking wet, which meant we had to dry dishes with paper towels. How about a little cooking oil? A few more spoons? More than a tiny sliver of soap in each bathroom? More TP? Some clarification on how to use microwave (there were no numbers to set time, as far as we could tell) and the toaster oven instructions were too tiny to read. We just unplugged it after each use since otherwise, it kept clicking...

All in all, a great place. Just needs a few small improvements to make it perfect!
Beautiful home! Lovely beach! Couldn’t have asked for a better vacation! by Victoria Scott 10/11/2018
We had an amazing vacation! This home is absolutely adorable and so close to the beach. The owner was also amazing in working with us. Will definitely be coming back.
Great property with a ton of space! by Erin Rendon 10/05/2018
My adult cousins and I stayed in this house for a weekend while attending a wedding. The house was cute online, but even better than we expected in person! The open floor plan of the kitchen and living room was the perfect space for us to sit around and catch up with each other. The master bedroom was large and the shower in the master bath was FANTASTIC! The upstairs bunk bed room was comfortable and had plenty of room for the 5 people who slept there. We really couldn't have picked a better place to stay!
Loved the layout! by Shane Hartley 09/09/2018
We absolutely loved the layout of the house. There was so much room to just spread out. Loved the proximity to the beach as well.
Perfect Girls Trip Getaway by Jodi Nevels 08/17/2018
We were only at Kids And Grands for a weekend getaway, but we were very happy with our choice. The sleeping set up was perfect but the living area was amazing for a big group of girls who like to sit and chat with our wine or with our coffee. Walk to the beach was only 7minutes away so that was easy as well.
Cute and very spacious ! by gabriela garcia 07/28/2018
We enjoyed the stay , open concept house with a huge kitchen island , was perfect size for 12 of us ! We had enough towels ,beach toys for kids and a beach cart provided by owner and fully stocked kitchen ! It’s only a 3 minute walk to the beach & it’s located minutes away from stores and restaurants and the harbor boardwalk .also convenient extra large washer and dryer ! We will definitely be coming back !
Best Family Vacation EVER by Tracy Willoughby 06/30/2018
This house is just perfect for Kids & Grandkids! 6 adults and 5 children - ranging in age from 23 months - 10 years old! Everything was great. The upstairs was a perfect place for 4 of the kiddos and we were able to send them up there as needed! The kitchen is well stocked and their were plenty of towels. Washer & dryer were great too. My husband said to mention that the WiFi was fantastic. There were many times that at least 12 devices were connected at once. The pool was never crowded and it was only a short walk to the beach. We rented a golf cart, which was perfect for us. I would definitely recommend renting this house to anyone, especially if they have several kids with them.
Perfect for extended family and kids by Jody Storck 06/23/2018
We spent a week here with our children and grandchildren (6 adults, 4 children), and the home's size and amenities were great. The grandchildren loved the bunk room! Beach is only a short walk away. Had an issue with the internet initially but it was quickly resolved. Would definitely return!
Great house for our family beach vacation. by Vivian Sawyer 06/02/2018
The house was generally clean and cute. The kids LOVED the bunk room. The pantry was roomy and the ice machine was handy. There were some small issues-couldn't find the remote for the DVD player, there was no designated place to hose off sand after the beach, there was not enough silverware for the number of people, the last couple of days dead roaches began appearing throughout the house (I guess one should expect this in Florida?). All in all, the house worked well for us--6 adults and 7 children.
Great getaway by Lisa Wilbourn 04/27/2018
The house is great! Some minor issues with wifi - which was quickly resolved and the tv/cables was not easy to operate in the living room. Overall a beautiful house; easy 5 minute walk to the beach and close to all that is Destin/Fort Walton.
Great Place! by Logan Clark 04/13/2018
We are locals living in crestview and rented the beach house for the weekend of our wedding! It was in excellent condition, it accommodated all of our guests that we needed it to. Very clean, spacious, and just an overall great place. We will be back for future visits.
Beautiful, peaceful and relaxing by Amy Howell 03/31/2018
We loved our stay in Kids and Grands. The neighborhood is gorgeous and so peaceful. It’s far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough you can walk to the action. It was so peaceful sitting on the porch drinking our coffee in the morning. The house itself is so spacious and worked perfectly for us. We had 4 adults and 6 kids and we weren’t at all crowded. After staying here I don’t think I could ever do a condo again! We went grocery shopping and did most of our meals there. They had everything we needed including a crockpot! And the pool was just a couple houses down. The older kids could go swim and we just checked on them periodically. Really don’t have any complaints. I would highly recommend it. And the beach is incredible!! Only a couple minute walk away.
Completely Perfect! by Chris Blan 03/24/2018
Our stay could not have been better. The house is beautiful and accommodated our large group perfectly! If only we could stay longer!
Spring Break awesomeness by Mike Randazzo 03/17/2018
A beautiful house! Steps away from the wonderful subdivision pool and a short walk to the beach. We would definitely return for another stay. This place fulfilled all of our needs for a fantastic vacation with the kids!
Great place for kids! Easy walk to beach. by Maria Soldevilla 03/10/2018
Perfect home for two families and a nanny. They have a beach cart and toys, all you need is sunscreen! Clean inviting home. Kitchen was fully stocked so we had our own shrimp boil at the house and enjoyed. KIDS loved the bunk bed room!
Beautiful property! by Jason Hall 02/16/2018
My wife and I plus 6 of our best friends stayed here for a long weekend. The house was exceptionally clean, had super comfortable beds, large TVs in each room and was only a short walk to the beach. We would stay here again.
Perfect by Julianne Egger 12/29/2017
This place was perfect for our group. We had 6 adults and 8 kids and fit perfectly. Linsey the property manager was extremely helpful when we had a WiFi issue and quickly helped us fix it! Would definitely recommend this place! Beautiful home.
Beautiful home spacious my kids and Grandkids enjoyed it by John Hadley 11/20/2017
Helpful hints. There was no instructions for the tankless water heater so it took a while to get hot water in that section of the house. Also take all the spices and such with you there was no salt or others. We did have to purchase some things to do the meals we chose. A good time was had by all.
Perfect for Guys Trip by Tyler Teston 10/06/2017
Perfect location for a guys golf trip. No need to snuggle we had 7 grown men each of us had our own bed along with extra room for more. I would almost consider the couches in the sleeping arrangements too because of how comfortable they are. HUGE living room and kitchen open floor plan, was great for football and hanging out after a day on the links. More than enough bathrooms and showers. We priced out just about every other option as well as hotels and this place's price made them into a joke. Extremely clean and a 15second walk to the pool. We did not go to the beach but it is a hop skip and jump from there. We fit 4 X-large vehicles in the driveway without blocking the sidewalk if anyone is curious. We will be back with families in the future. Thank you for the listing
Perfect family vacation by Amanda Behnk 09/23/2017
Our family and friends stayed here during September and the weather was perfect. The size of the house is great and with 10 people staying we never felt crowded or fought for use of bathrooms.

The house is a short distance from the beach if you don't mind a little bit of a walk. We enjoyed being nearby all of the great activities and restaurants as well.
Great neighborhood, easy walk to beach by Blair Holden 09/17/2017
House was very comfortable and useful for our family. Had 6 adults and 3 kids. Kids loved the upstairs lofted bunk beds. Easy walk to the beach and a useful beach cart to haul all our kids "accessories" to and from. Could have used an outdoor shower but wasn't a big deal. Quiet neighborhood and close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. Would definitely stay again.
Wow! by Shelby Thompson 08/30/2017
I was very impressed with the house and its size! It comfortably fit 12 women and was a short walk to the beach! I loved that it already had beach chairs for us to use and even the stroller to carry our stuff in. Very impressed! My only complaint was that we were asked to start a load of laundry before we left. We were only here for four nights so none of us had brought any laundry detergent but other than that everything was great! Love the neighborhood - so quiet and even though it's close to the main drag of Destin - you'd never know! Also, loved the pool! Super easy to book, pay, check in and check out. If I am ever vacationing with a big group again this home will be on my list! Thanks for the wonderful stay!
Wonderful house close to beach! by Brooke Christensen 08/12/2017
We loved our stay at "Gran & Kids". It was the perfect size for our group of 9 adults and 3 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone. House was well equipped. It had everything you needed.
The location was good... right down the street from the pool and short walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful beach house by Sandra Sidon 07/29/2017
This house was perfect for the whole family. The kitchen and dinner room are very spacious, we were all able to enjoy our meals together. The rooms are also very spacious. The location was also perfect: It was very peaceful and no traffic, and walking distance to the beach. The house had everything we needed including beach chairs to sand toys. Over all this was was just beautiful will defenilty stay here again!
The perfect beach getaway! by Rebecca Stanley 07/08/2017
What a wonderful week we had here! The space is just perfect for sending all the kids upstairs to the awesome bunk room, and we really enjoyed both the house and the nearby pool and beach! Thanks for having us!
Kids and grandkids vacation by Roland Napoles 06/10/2017
We had a great time. The house was the right size for all 14 of us. The beach was just around the corner and the pool too. The grandkids had a ball. We would definitely rent it again. The thing I would recommend is a chest of drawers in the bedrooms to store the clothes.
Pros and Cons by Deborah Mostad 06/03/2017
Pros
Large, beautiful house that comfortably slept three families which included grandparents and two younger families with five children and a baby. Wonderful floor plan with large, open living area and kitchen. Close to pool. Well maintained (except for the problem in the cons). Pantry with a separate ice machine made it easy to store food for three families.

Cons
The dishwasher worked half of the time. We had at least two service calls so it was frustrating to be on vacation with a dishwasher that didn't work. While the realtor would say the house is an easy walk from the beach, it is for two adults only! For families with young children, the walk is not so easy with accompanying beach paraphernalia. Make sure you bring a wagon.
Great location close to the beach, pool, Walmart and other shopping! by Heather Carmichael 05/18/2017
We loved our stay at this house. The kids loved all the space upstairs and the house was very spacious. It was only a short walk to the beach, which was nice so we didn't have to find parking. The only bad experience we had was that someone stole our nieces new crocs at the pool that she left there for a few hours. Overall a very great house and we would stay in it again!
We had a wonderful time in Destin! The house was beautiful and a great location! It was the perfect! by Tiffany McCoy 05/13/2017
Great family vacay!!! We had a wonderful time in Destin! The house was beautiful and a great location! We were close to many of the attractions and just a short walk to the beach. Our family is already talking about next year!!!
Beautiful Home in Destin, Florida by Steph Troncalli 05/05/2017
This home is very nice with wonderful decor and spacious and comfortable bedrooms. It is located in a quiet, quaint neighborhood within walking distance of the beach. It is three houses down from the neighborhood pool. There is plenty of room for a large family to spread out. The upstairs bedroom with the bunk beds has two flat screen TVs with gaming chairs for the kids and a large TV on the opposite wall if they want to watch movies. The queen size bunks are very comfortable.
Everything is very well done and seems like new. In addition to being close to the beach, the public beach pavilion with picnic tables and nice restrooms is directly across from the road on which you walk to the beach. So, it is easy to pull a cooler and have some lunch without hoofing it back to the house for a bite.
Linsey was very responsive with questions and recommendations about the area and service.
No complaints at all. Love this place and will be back again!
Beautiful amd clean by Ashleigh Massingill 04/23/2017
The house is beautiful and clean. The walk to the beach is not that far. Fully stocked kitchen and comfy beds and plenty of room. However there were some reservations conflitcts that i encounter but Lindsey was accommodating and handled the mix up.
Awesome slice of heaven!!! by David Millspaugh 04/09/2017
Our family vacation was amazing!! I can't rave about this house enough. It had everything that you could want. Tons of room, comfortable furniture, amazing neighborhood, huge high quality TVs, top end appliances, 2 king size beds, and pleaseeee don't get me started on the master bathroom shower. I could live in there. The owners provide very nice beach equipment as well as a cart to assist you in getting to the beach. It's an easy walk to the beach from the house. I have stayed in VRBO properties all over the USA including Hawaii. This was by far going away the best vacation property I've stayed in.

The only constructive criticism I could leave was the cleaning crew didn't do a very good job cleaning the floors. If you walked around barefooted your feet turned black.

I only wish this house was for sale. We would snatch it up if it was.

Thanks for an amazing stay!!
Our stay was amazing!! by Primo Garcia 04/01/2017
It was an amazing vacation and awesome time with friends and family.
Super cute and charming! by Penny Robertson 10/14/2016
Wonderful experience! Linsey was very accommodating and check in was a breeze. Perfect place for kids and grands with easy access to the beach. The house was well equipped, perfect for our needs. Everyone had a fantastic time and look forward to returning.
Spectacular by 05/21/2016
We just had our family vacation to this home and it was everything we could ask for and more. The location is great, house is in wonderful condition, and even had some bonuses that we did not expect like a beach wagon, beach chairs, ect... We will definitely stay here again!
Excellent Vacation Rental House by Diane Vicars 05/14/2016
We had never been to Destin, Fla. but decided to try it this year. This house was beautiful from the second we drove up to it. Pretty little landscaped yard, great wrap-around porch, but the inside blew us away! It was so spacious, open, clean, and beautifully decorated! 2 of the bedrooms and bathrooms (and closets) were huge! The upstairs bedroom was absolutely huge and adorable and easily accommodated 5 teenage girls. The beach was a little further than we had planned on walking to, but it was a nice walk and really wasn't that far. The house is so close to all the shopping and restaurants and we loved that, too! Very convenient and great location. Loved the neighborhood! We will definitely stay here again. It was perfect for our group of 11! 🙂 <3
Fantastic Family Vacation by Lydia Chamberlain 08/01/2015
My growing family have always enjoyed vacationing in the Clipper Cove community. Since the house we used to rent for the last 6-7 years was sold, we had to find a suitable replacement. Kids and Grandkids met our needs. We loved the open living/dining/kitchen area where my family congregated often. We enjoy cooking and grilling and bringing take home meals to the house.This home became our gathering place. We rented another home for our son and his family,but we definitely love this place. It was like our home and we treated it like it was our home. Both the owner and the managers, Jo and Linsey responded quickly to any small concerns we had. The owner even requested feedback as to how they can make the vacationer's stay more memorable and comfortable. My husband, his sister and her husband and I would do our daily walks and we've enjoyed seeing the nice changes the community have made to the Destin area. The beach is so close -short walking distance and most of the two weeks we stayed, the water was just wonderful. The family tried parasailing for the first time, went to the Fishbowl (new and unique bowling arena), miniature golf, go cart, bumper boats, you have both harbors/wharfs nearby and of course, shopping to your hearts desire. Just endless possibilities of activities and new restaurants. Every year, it seems there's something new to do. We definitely hope to return to this vacation home next year. Thank you for welcoming us into your lovely home!
