Guest Reviews

Excellent beach house. by Nathalie Castaneda 09/09/2018
Beautiful home and awesome location! We had a great family time. We also enjoyed the pool.
Family Vacation by Christiney Alexander 08/11/2018
We had a wonderful stay, there was a few little issues when we arrived and the next day they were fixed. Home is very beautiful kids loved the pool but wished it was a little bigger. The pictures made it look big. I would stay again at this property. My family really enjoyed Destin.
Beautiful home, terrific location! by Luisa Imsais 07/22/2018
Wonderful home, well maintained and spotless! This was the perfect spot for a family vacation (3 couples, 3 kiddos). Plenty of room, short walk to the beach, great location for restaurants and shopping as well. The boys loved playing in the pool. Would definitely book again!
Perfect! by Sandra Wells 06/30/2018
Lovely, Charming Home - Hated to Leave! by Lisa Bailey 03/31/2018
We loved our time in this charming home! It was absolutely as depicted - clean, cute, roomy, comfy. The pool was small but adequate if you wanted options from the beach. The area was nice overall; it was Spring Break week so not completely fair to judge the environment. 🙂

Communication with the Property Manager was excellent . . . I had an issue unrelated to the house (sick child) and called her . . . she responded and was helpful above and beyond what was necessary, referring me to a walk-in clinic and giving me the name of a friend who worked there.

The house is really lovely - we hated to leave! Highly recommend.
House is super charming. Lots of space. by Jill Cohen 02/19/2018
All in all we had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and clean and lovely. The pool worked great for the 6 kids we had with us, even given its small size. Quick to warm up and was clean. The area is cute for sure. Our only complaint was the bad WiFi connection (we did reach out to have it fixed, and the property manager responded quickly but the connection was just not great. We had to take our devices off WiFi for most of the trip) and the outlets don’t hold in plugs! We had a bit of a challenge to charge our devices (there were 10 people so that’s a lot of devices!) because the plugs are really loose and wouldn’t keep anything in - a bit of a problem with lots of baby monitors and cell phones! It’s a great house. Would stay again.
PERFECT by Johnna Spann 02/16/2018
It was such a nice house for a girls getaway. Perfect location. Just all around relaxing!
Awesome Home by Tamiara Wade 02/02/2018
The property is immaculate and fully equipped. Very spacious, yet a cozy home feel. The private pool would be great during the spring and summer months. It exceeded my expectations and I'd definitely want to stay in this home again...notice, I didn't say "house." Five stars!
Awesome Place!!! by jesse conrad 10/04/2017
This is an amazing place that I would recommend to anyone. A short walk to the beach and a great pool to relax in after the beach. Updated perfectly with everything you could need . Already looking forward to our next stay!! Thanks for the good times!
Amazing by Grisel Munive 09/22/2017

The perfect "home away from home" by Sherrie Cleveland 08/19/2017
My family had stayed in this home several times when my teenage daughter and her friends would spend Spring Break in Destin. Over the years we had the pleasure of staying in numerous homes, however, I will say this home is truly a cut above. It is so open with an easy and comfortable living space. It is so well appointed that there is hardly anything you do not have available. Also, having two bedrooms on the main level and the master upstairs, allows privacy and quiet if you are parents hosting teens. This time was a new experience for us. My husband and I brought our 30 year old daughter and 2 year old grand daughter back to make new memories. It was such fun to experience Destin, and this home, again in such a different stage of life, but once again there was no disappointment. Having the two bedrooms down and the master up allowed the two families to enjoy the different times in "peace and quiet" without inconveniencing the other. Also, the pool is so enjoyable when you just don't feel like going to the beach.
Good by Linda Barnett 08/12/2017
The property was clean and had most things we needed for our stay. It was nice to have the pool. Thank you
The weather didn't cooperate but we really liked the property. I would recommend it. by Larry Broadley 04/29/2017
They provided all the comforts of home. I loved the sun porch. The location was close to everything and just a short walk to the beach. Would look forward to going back next year.
Very nice and clean, great location. by Malachy Lacy 04/15/2017
It was a great house, wide angle lens makes lot and pool seem much larger than they really are, however.
Loved it! by Jessica Brumfield 04/08/2017
What an amazing house! We walked in and it was so clean and beautiful! Accommodated our family very nicely! Our kids loved the private pool and the walk to the beach was not bad at all! It is right down the street from scenic 98 which is so nice to walk on or bike/run on. We will definitely be staying in this house again!!
BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, AND GREAT LAYOUT by Jennifer Bretveld 03/11/2017
The property itself is gorgeous. The house is very clean. The kitchen is FULLY equipped, the owners thought of everything. Plenty of space in the open living, dining, and kitchen area. The screened in porch is just another added bonus. The laundry room is centrally located right off the kitchen. There we a total of 5 people staying at the house and we had plenty of room. Will definitely rent this house again. The pool, which we paid to be heated, was very nice. We had to report that the pool pump was leaking, so we called the number of the owner(s), and they had a maintenance pool guy come out right away for it to be fixed. Highly recommend this house to anyone visiting Destin.
Wonderful home! by Mary Ann James 10/17/2016
I loved this home! It was beautifully decorated, lots of room for my three grown children. I loved the open floor plan where we could all spread out. The front porch was the best for sitting and having a nice quiet time with a glass of wine. The back porch is huge & lovely, overlooking the pool. We had the best sing along and good time out there. It was just a short walk to the beach too! We love to cook and the kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed. I can't wait to go back!!!
