Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our Vacation. The beach house we rented was fabulous. It was everything we expected and more. It was very roomy and just felt like home. The access to the pools were great and the beach just a small walk away. It was a very quiet neighborhood and so secluded. We will be back as have already planned for next summer. Thanks again for everything, everyone we came in contact with was just so friendly and helpful.

Location

From the Owner

Why not? We have always enjoyed our vacations, especially now that we have our own place in paradise. I knew other people who had purchased property in the Destin area and became intrigued at the prospect of someday owning a vacation home.

Amenities

From the Owner

We love the fact that our house is peacefully secluded, yet in the middle of everything that the area has to offer in terms of shopping, restaurants, sight-seeing, and recreation.
