My family of 18 recently stayed at Mama’s Happy house in Destin, FL. This house is beautiful and walking distance from the beach. Our kiddos loved the pool and we couldn’t keep them out. The service was awesome! Would totally recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental home in Destin, FL.

Beautiful vacation home!

We had a wonderful time here, the house is in a great location. The street is very quiet yet a short walk to the beach and very close to shopping and restaurants. The home is very nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Everyone loved having the private pool. Janet was always available to answer any questions immediately. I would definitely rent this house again.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
Mamma's Happy was a fabulous rental home. We had 4 families (18 people) and we had room for everyone. The home was very nice and had all the amenities we needed. It was a short walk to the beach and having the private pool was wonderful. I felt like we were in a very safe neighborhood and Janet was helpful with any needs or questions that we had. The home was also very close to restaurants, Destin Commons shopping, Big Kahuna waterpark, go carts, outlet malls, etc. It was the perfect location. We look forward to returning.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We had great expectations coming into this house, and Mama's Happy exceeded each and every one of them! As far as location, the house is a short walk to public beach access: we were there in two minutes tops. When it came to the house, everything was perfect. We had a group of 16 adults and I don't think anyone felt crowded at any point in the trip. The spacious main floor provided plenty of space for the group to gather across the kitchen, dining room and living room with its open floor plan, and the bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious as well. I slept on the king bed in the master bedroom and I can easily say it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Added features such as a pool, smart televisions, outdoor shower, grill and washer/dryer just added to the convenience. (also: very close to a wide running/walking/biking trail if you are interested in exercising). In regards to customer service, the owners took care of everything in a very timely and appropriate manner--any questions that arose on my end were answered very thoroughly and promptly and all the details of our trip were handled well before we even packed our bags for Destin.

If you are looking for a great group house, look no further than this house.

Perfect location and super clean!

This home was the best choice we have made in a rental. It's less than a block from the beach, short walk to shopping and restaurants and we even walked to church! We literally got in our vehical once in a week and that was my goal. It was so perfect for my young kids. They lived in the pool. Adults loved it too! If we had questions, the rental agency was very prompt. The only sad part was packing up.

This beach property was amazing! Very easy to find with ample parking. Tastefully decorated with an unique beach flair with personal touches and the comfy feeling of home. My husband & I stayed in the private cottage with a view of the inviting pool, lovely sitting area with TV, mini fridge & coffee maker. Extremely comfortable bed & TV in bedroom. Great roomy walk in shower with an awesome overhead rain shower head. Group gatherings in the main beach house were great. Wonderful kitchen & plenty of seating for everyone. Great Location! Short walk to the beach, restaurants & shopping. Many other restaurants, shopping and spas only minutes away by car. Can't wait to return!

Mamma's Happy Review

Mamma's Happy Review
  • 5 of 5
My husband & I along with 3 other couples spent Super Bowl weekend(Jan. 31-Feb.3,2014) at "Mamma's Happy." We loved it! Every bathroom is gorgeous as well as the kitchen. I was pleasantly surprised how easy the walk was to the beach -quicker than going down an elevator at a condo. My husband & I had our morning coffee up in the "perch". We can't wait to go back with our grand kids. They will love the bunk beds. I was thrilled that Fresh Market & HomeGoods were so close by. (Not walking distance for me but a very close drive.)
