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!!!

Great House

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th year in a row staying at Destin Dreaming. Had another great year and the weather was great. This house has everything you will need and the location is perfect to the beach. It's also great for dogs. We bring our dog every year and it's great that he can run around and not worry about him getting out. It's also nice that restaurans, golfing and shopping are close. We'll be back.

Destin Dreaming

  • 5 of 5
The only problem I am having writing this review is that I am limited to 5 stars. Just completed my daughter's destination wedding here in Destin. As father of the bride I was charged with finding accommodations for my side of the family and was lucky enough to find Destin Dreaming. I live here and am very familiar with the rental properties available to people who come down to see us and the beaches. Having been burned before by internet photos, I am very wary of them.
The photos of Destin Dreaming are just the tip of the iceberg. It is even better than the photos suggest.
Obviously recently updated and tastefully decorated including the the pleasant yard. Unexpected touches like old fashioned rockers on glorious covered porches.
Perfect for the the 3 couples and 3 children we rented for. Kids from 4 to 12. Adults from 35 to 70. The three king sized beds and the bunk room worked perfectly. So did the easy walk to the best beaches in the continental U.S. of which the kids took full advantage, riding boogie boards in the surf. They live on the coast of Maine, but they had never seen beaches like Destin.
When I say I would like to give more than 5 stars, I am not talking about a five star hotel in NY or Paris, I am saying that this is the best combination of location, accommodation, and owner care I personally believe you are likely to find. My job was to find accommodations for my relatives for my daughters wedding. Instead of being contacted to lodge complaints on behalf of my relatives, I heard things like "great job", "pristine" and "immaculate". Say no more.

Beautiful home just a quick walk to the beach!!

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

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!!

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.
