Guest Reviews

very good by Carol Whidden 11/20/2018
Our stay was very enjoyable. The layout worked well for our group, and all the furnishings were well designed and comfortable. We loved the porch, and the lovely picket fence was a huge plus with small children present. The beautiful art is eclectic and intriguing!
We've stayed in this owner's property before. She is responsive and easy to work with.
Quiet cozy home nestled in the corner of a well-manicured, safe neighborhood one block from beach by Hoku Brewer 10/16/2018
Our family was unfortunately victim to Hurricane Michael over in Panama City and found this home to be our home away from home while we worked to rebuild our life... We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook at home - we didn’t once “wish” for something different to cook (and even bake) with. Plenty of towels/linens. Plenty of space. We loved the funky art/decor and liked the layout - it was perfect for family movies and game time. This place was very clean. WiFi and cable were a plus. Laundry unit works well despite the washer needing replacement - the seal is filled with mildew but with a quick change to your laundry there isn’t a bad smell. Close walk to the beach and shops. We used to live in Destin and this section of beach nearby (including the Crab Trap area) happens to be our most favorite, with a pathway along the road to bike/walk/run. We loved nights and early mornings on the porch which has plenty of furniture and space for lounging. Linsey and JoJo were amazing to work with and so flexible and kind. We really have nothing but great things to say about our stay - we lived here for more than a month and don’t have any complaints!
