Tons of space! Great location!

  • 4 of 5
My large family stayed here for 7 days recently and had a great time. The home is absolutely HUGE and everyone had plenty of space. We especially enjoyed having 2 kitchens and 2 laundry rooms! Our kids also enjoyed the upstairs bedroom (plenty of room for 4 kids and their own TV!). And we thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the cabana in the backyard. Our kids swam several times per day. Some of the negatives - the beds! Especially the upstairs king bed - sinks in the middle - needs replacement. Also, the sliding door out to the pool - extremely heavy to move (needs to be looked at by repairmen - maybe off track?). The biggest negative for us was the walk to the beach. Even though it's only 3-5 minutes, it seems much longer when you are carrying cooler, umbrellas and chairs...The last few days we were there we hardly went to the beach. But there were plenty of other things to do in the area - Destin Commons shopping/movies were great as well as outlets at Sandestin. Two people in our group brought their bikes and rode to Starbucks every day. Overall it was a very nice vacation. The home is in a convenient location and close to everything!!

Location, Location, Location - We LOVE the beach and this home is just steps away from the beach and everything else the area has to offer. We were particularly attracted to the family neighborhood and spend as much time as we can here.
