Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5
It is a nice, big house and just a short walk to the beach. We were very happy with our stay here and the responsiveness from the owner Jimbo! The house is close to Destin and minutes from the local grocery store and local Destin attractions (pier, Fudpuckers, outlet mall, etc.). It is a large house that can accommodate a big group. Everyone commented on the comfort of the king beds - they were absolutely wonderful. There is a cute coffee shop with sandwiches on the way to the beach, just a block away from the house...and the beach itself is fantastic - green waters and powdery white sand......

A great time

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at this house for spring break with a total of 16 people: 6 adults and 10 boys under the age of 14. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep and plenty of relaxing room. The house was clean, well maintained, and inviting. The boys really enjoyed the 3rd floor living room and outdoor deck area. What a view from the deck! Great! The pool and basketball court kept the boys entertained, although we did have some problems with where to put the cars when the boys wanted to play basketball. Just note that there is NO parking on the street in front of the house. The house is perfectly located in a quaint little neighborhood that kept the touristy traffic away, but close enough for easy access to the beach. A block walk to the public access.

Great neighborhood. Very short walk to the beach. We loved the proximity to the grocery store, and went practically every day. Outside doors were a little tough to open and close. There was an odor in the kitchen that could not be identified. A few minor repairs are needed to get a Five Star, but overall we were pleased with the property.

Owner's Response: We not the Ritz Carlton, yet. But we strive to be. I can assure you the house is clean and odor free. We have an awesome cleaning crew that do a awesome job. My family stayed in the house the week before this guest. We spend the entire week finding things to fix, even the little things. I wish this guest would have contacted me during his stay but never did.

Loved the location within walking distance from beach. Noticed there was limited parking so didn't have to worry about that. House accomodated our whole family of 16. Everyone had a great time. There were a few minor things that needed tending to like closet doors off the hinges and towel racks loose, but overall it was clean and well maintained. Would recommend to anyone.

Fantastic stay, great and professional service from the manager

  • 5 of 5
Had a three night stay with friends and family, 14 people in all. There were more than enough places to sleep, and a fantastic location by the beach. The weather wasn't the best during our stay so we found ourselves spending more time inside, and the house was perfect. The open floor plan, fresh paint and new flooring was beautiful, and allowed everyone to congregate together downstairs without being cramped. The kitchen, grilling, and picnic table area provide plenty of space for family dinners at home.

Dealing with the manager was super easy, he was only one phone call away at all times. All of the neighbors who were home owners were very friendly and accommodating. The view from the top deck is priceless.

After this stay, all of my friends and family are talking about making this house MUST location for an annual reunion. Highly recommended.

This was the second year we stayed at Family Tides. The house is as described and easy to find. Its in a very small and clean neighborhood. The grocery is 1 mile away. The beach is very clean. It's a very short walk to the beach. We have 7 little ones under the age of 6 so walking to the beach with all of the gear was a little cumbersome. There is only one busy road to cross. The property was the perfect size for us. And there were several nice updates from last year. Last year, we had 15 and this year we had 11. We never felt crowded. It is a great floor plan. The pool was perfect for us. Outside and inside furniture is nice. Shower on the back deck is perfect for the kids and after the beach. The house and pool was clean when we arrived. The kitchen is well stocked with most essentials including 2 coffee pots! We didn't need to contact the owner this time, but last year we needed him for audio/visual equipment and he responded quickly. We would definitely recommend this house.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the most beautiful beach in the world. The water is a deep emerald green. The sands are powdery white that glissen in the sunlight. And such spectacular sunsets. Nothing beats Destin, Florida.
