Definitely NOT worth the MONEY!!

This place is very run down. The carpet is very dirty with stains. The beds are very hard, the pillows are shot, the place is very dated. Definitely not worth the money especially since the place is infested with cock roaches!!!! Save your money and find better. Very disappointed!

Owner's Response: This unit is one of our more popular destinations, and we have never seen language like this used to describe what is normally a desirable location. We had the carpets cleaned promptly upon receiving this negative review. We have had three families stay in this home since this guest's visit, all left happy with no issues to report. We have not to date had any other allegations of pest issues but did have the home thoroughly sprayed after your departure just to be on the safe side. The pest control technician did confirm that the property is not infested. Of the parties involved here a certified pest control tech is the only party with the proper certification to determine if there is in fact a bug issue. His report indicated that no issue was present and the spray was simply a precaution. This home continues to draw several repeat guests year after year. In light of this review we do apologize to this guest for any inconveniences you may have experienced during your recent visit to the emerald coast and hope that your travels bring you back to our lovely area soon!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5
This house was very clean and comfortable. 3 levels provided privacy and good soundproofing when the children went to bed. Having umbrellas and chairs setup on the beach waiting for us provided an extra touch too! The beach was also private - not too many people. Every member of my party enjoyed the home and the beach. The small pool on the deck was nice to sit in and have cocktails at night. Having four off street parking spots was really nice. I just referred my nephew to this home for his family fun. Thanks Gary - We had a wonderful time and look forward to next year.

Activity and Interests

Tens of thousands of years ago, quartz crystals were carried by

glacial rivers from the Appalachian Mountains to the Gulf of Mexico

in northwest Florida. These tiny clear crystals now form a blanket of

pure white sugar sand making these beaches among the highest rated in

the world. While the pure white sands and emerald waters lure people

to its shores, Destin offers so much more!

Golf - Destin has become the major golf destination in Northwest

Florida. There are several courses within 3 miles of Gulf Splendor

and over 1,000 holes in the greater Destin area.

Fishing - With over 100 private charters, Destin boasts some of the

best fishing in the gulf region. Take half or full day charters for

Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Red Snapper, Trigger Fish, Amberjack, Cobia and

many others. Drop your catch off at one of the harbor restaurants and

come back that evening for a delicious meal. Try your luck at the

52nd annual Fishing Rodeo during the month of October, 2005.

Shopping – From quaint little boutiques to factory outlet malls,

Destin has unlimited shopping options. The Silver Sands Factory

outlet mall is located within 1 mile of Gulf Splendor. Destin

Commons, the brand new shopping and entertainment complex is only 4

miles away. Within 2 miles, beautiful Baytowne Wharf offers many

shopping and entertainment options.

Restaurants – Walk up the beach to the Whales Tail, our favorite

breakfast place, or check out any of many restaurants for all price

ranges within 1 to 5 miles.

Take the kids towards downtown Destin and Okaloosa Island to get to

the Big Kahuna Water Park, the Gulfarium and many other family

entertainment options.

Take a laidback scenic drive East along route 30-A to quaint little

beach towns such as Grayton Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove and

Rosemary Beach.

There is something for everyone in Destin!
