Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! We were so pleased when we drove into the driveway. What a deal!!! (we were thinking) AND after entering the home, our smiles continued to grow as we looked around! The photos of the bedrooms do not show how large and well furnished(especially t.v's, music systems, etc..) they are. The house was so clean and inviting. We like pet friendly places, but not the kind where there are any clues that a pet has been around AND we were comforted when we noticed how immaculate the interior AND exterior of the home were. We have a small pet and the fenced in yard was terrific, as well as the expansive porches - and also for our boys(ages 4 and 21 months). We pulled the baby in a red wagon to the beach and our other son liked pulling the beach toy cart(he liked the slew of beach toys just as much!) The Crystal Beach community is beautiful and Destin Dreamin' is the house - almost the quintessential American summer vacation place to go with your family/friends. Superb! Comfortable! Enjoyable! It feels like your own beach home!(almost to the point that you don't want to recommend it to others!-a best kept secret kind of place!) We will be back EVERY year, God willing, where our family can make memories for years to come!!!

Beautiful home just a quick walk to the beach!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Destin Dreaming as a holiday family get-together. This home had more than enough room for our 8 adults and 1 teenager. The location of the house makes you feel like you are in a very private and secluded beach town. The most gorgeous white sand beach imaginable is just a short, 3 minute walk on a quite street. However, hop in your car and the grocery store and outlet mall is just around the corner. Everything is so convenient. This home has everything you could ever need: plenty of space for sleeping, eating and relaxing. The kitchen is stocked with everything including plenty of plates, cups and glasses, silverware, cookware, spices, even party platters. It was very cold when we visited (30's and 40's), so we didn't use the pool, however it is very clean and the perfect size to just sit back and relax in. The owners are super friendly, the house is very clean and the grounds are beautiful landscaped and maintained. The best part of the home is that it is pet-friendly. My small dog loved the fenced in yard and wrap around porches. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to visit the beautiful beaches of Destin.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was great...... very clean and lots of room, and a quick walk to the beach. We made it a family vacation with our two sons and their families, and my Dad to celebrate his 90th birthday. We were never crowded and everyone had a great time. I would recommend this house to anyone. Great place!!

Great Vacation

The house was everything we expected. Very clean and well equipped. We had three young kids with us and it was very close to beach. Pool was a perfect size for the kids. Will definitely return to this house.

Delightful Destin-ation!

  • 5 of 5
We first loved Destin Dreaming when we saw the property and pictures online. When we drove in February 1, we fell in love with the house all over again. As we walked from room to room, we were "wow-ed". Just like the pictures, the home is beautifully decorated and appointed with any amenity you would need. We felt right at home sitting on the comfortable furniture or sleeping in the spacious king-sized bed. When the weather permitted, we relaxed on the wrap around porches or poolside. Best of all, our golden "KC" had a safe fenced-in yard to roam around. Our guests were equally impressed with this lovely home. We met Stacey's husband and father; very friendly and answered quickly any questions we had. The Crystal Shores area is the perfect location ... close to the Gulf...close to shops and restaurants... yet it is a quiet neighborhood.
While in Destin, we visited HarborWalk where there are shops and restaurants like Harry T's and AJ's. When the weather warms, there are plenty of water activities for all ages. Close to the house was Destin Commons, another shopping area and the AMC theater. The "emerald green" Gulf is a block away from Destin Dreaming; an easy walk. We enjoyed 'Happy Hour' outside at the 790 Club. Everyday I walked KC up and down Scenic 98... where other good restaurants like Crab Trap, Captain Dave's, and Pompano Joe's are located. We also bicycled 30A through small beach resort towns like Santa Rosa, Grayton Beach, and Rosemary Beach to name a few. We brought our bikes with us but next time we will rent from Big Daddy's Bike Shop on 30A. Two of the most interesting spots were the Destin History and Fishing Museum near McGuire's Pub and the Air Force Armament Museum in Fort Walton. For unusual shopping, try Banana Bart's and Smith's Antique Mall, both on Hwy 98.
Although the weather was unseasonably cool and cloudy, we found lots to do and places to scout out. If we return to Destin, we would definitely stay in Destin Dreaming.

Our family of 11 stayed at this property and loved it! Everything was furnished for you...linens etc...there were even extras past renters left behind..dish soap..cooking spices..detergent...so we did the same when we left. Management responded immediately to a drain problem in the main bath. Convenient location yet quiet...close walk to the beach..great pool and pool house. Beaches were AMAZING!!!

Beautiful home with lots of queen/king beds!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful property in a great location. With one king bedroom downstairs for older parents, and two queen beds on second floor, anyone with kids can put them on third floor in bunk room which we did not need. Cabana room is small but my brother and sister-in-law enjoyed being away from rest of us as they go to bed early. Needed two lightbulbs changed as one was up about 12 feet and made hall stairs dangerous. Mr. Harris was there first thing next morning. Some confusion over apt upstairs that is not included in property rental, but we had total if five bedrooms so didn't need it. Best thing? Everyone had own bathroom with no sharing! This home has more sheets and blankets than any place we've stayed in over 30 years and kitchen had everything we could possibly need, even wine glasses. We'll visit this property again.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you all enjoyed Destin Dreaming with your family! I hope you all are able to come back next year. I do want to clarify for other potential renters - there are three king beds (no queens) - one on the first floor and two on the second floor. Thanks again for choosing Destin Dreaming.
