About the Owner

We've both grownup on along the beach. West Coast for me and North East Coast for my husband, but nothing compares to the world famous sugar white sand beaches and emerald waters of Destin. Friends introduced our family to Destin in 2005 and we fell in love, hoping to one day own a beach house that we could share with family, old friends, and new friends. From our family to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy your stay and make lasting memories to cherish.

Living the Dream!

  • 5 of 5
We met our two sons and their families, as well as my husband's parents for a vacation that will never be forgotten!!! We had five children, two teens, and eight adults and never felt crowded.

On our arrival, we entered the house to the tunes of Bob Marley playing on the Sonos music system. Everyone scattered throughout the roomy house to find their rooms and get settled in. Everything was shiny and clean and the colors and the decor were beautiful!

We quickly found the doors leading from every bedroom onto porches and balconies on every floor with views that were amazing! We felt like we were in a magazine spread!! And the porch was to die for...wrapping around three sides of the house overlooking a yard with a white picket fence, a bike rack with four beach bikes straight out of a movie.

And the pool....beautiful, sparkling and so inviting. With a table and stools to sip a drink while watching the kids splash in the pool everyday after going to the beach (and showering in the outdoor shower to clean off the sand).

And my favorite spot...the swinging bed on the front porch. Every morning, I took my coffee and my iPad to the front porch and answered my work emails while swinging lightly in the breeze listening to island music and the gentle sounds of the beach!! Until the little ones came out to cuddle with me on the swing...memories that will never be forgotten.

Kimbie (the owner) and Randy (the property manager) were amazing and didn't miss a thing!! We felt so welcome! And most houses we have rented are stripped of everything in the kitchen and bathrooms, but not here. The kitchen was stocked with spices and other little extras that made it much easier to cook each night. Plus enough bathroom essentials t make it until we could get to a store.

We loved it so much that it is the house we will rent every time we go back to Destin! We had planned to travel to a different place each year, but it will be very hard to find a place that was this perfect...I don't tho punk it will be possible!,

And by the way, Destin was beautiful, also!

Thank you, Kimbie, for giving us the opportunity to experience Destin as if we were living the dream!!!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We arrived right at check-in time and everything was clean and ready for us. There was even a bag of ice in the freezer, which was appreciated. The agent dropped by a little later to see if everything was ok and to show us how the awesome sound system worked. It was great and easy to use. The kids were able to listen to their music in the gameroom while the adults listened to their favorite music in the house. Our group included 6 adults and 6 children and there was more than enough space for all of us. The kids loved the pool, game room and the basketball goal. The adults enjoyed the pool, spacious living room and well equiped kitchen. The house is beautifully decorated and maintained, just like the pictures online. The location is perfect because there is a beach view from the balconies, a short walk to the beach, and a short walk to a great restaurant, "790 On the Beach". Great shopping is nearby at Destin Commons. We went to the beach every morning, swam in the pool at the house in the afternoons, and one day went on a dolphin/snorkel cruise a few miles away. The owner and agent were both very helpful in answering any questions we had. I would recommend this house to friends and relatives.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The Plantation House is fabulous!! This was our first trip to Destin and it couldn't have been more perfect. There were 12 of us there, and the house was big enough for all of us to have a little space if we needed it, and yet all come together. We had dinner together every night and all of us could sit around the table! The game room was a huge hit for the younger crowd; I think the ping pong table got used every single day! The pool was perfect for a quick dip after a long day at the beach. The front porch was ALWAYS occupied by someone, whether it was a nap on the porch bed, or a cup of coffee and some people watching in one of the chairs. The fact that this house is right across from beach access was ideal! We ran back and forth when we needed to and the car was never full of sand! Randy, the property owner, is professional, prompt, and so courteous. He answered our few questions and addressed a couple of minor issues without delay. And Kimbie, the owner, is also prompt and courteous to talk to! If we ever make it back to Destin, this is the place we are coming back to!!

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Plantation House. Destin is beautiful and we enjoy vacationing there and this week was even more enjoyable because of this property. This is our third year to vacation in Destin and by far the best yet. The home is practically perfect in everyway and makes it very difficult to come up with ways to improve. We enjoyed every square in the house had to offer. We cooked most of our meals during the week and the kitchen had all you could expect and more. Our favorite parts of the home was the front porch, the pool, the kitchen and den area as well as the Sonos system! Even the gas grill was top notch and we enjoyed using that as well. Don't miss a trip to Camille's for dinner as the good was great and made for a nice place in walking distance. The walk to the beach is just steps away. Overall, it was a great experience, so great we have already booked our 2015 vacation. The owners and management company were fantastic to work with. You get more than you see with the property and you will not be disappointed - no detail overlooked. Thanks for sharing your property with our family!

PLANTATION HOUSE IS WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
NEVER HIVING RENTED BEFORE I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT THE HOUSE BUT IT WAS EVERY BIT AS NICE AS IN THE PICTURES. THE HEATED POOL WAS A LIFE SAVER SINCE WE HAD THE STORMS COME THROUGH WITH SOME COOLER WEATHER. THE BEACH WAS A SHORT WALK ACROSS THE STREET AND ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! THE PROPERTY MANAGER WAS VERY ATTENTIVE WHEN NEEED. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Would visit again!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better place to call home for the week. It was great to see our children outside playing basketball, swimming, riding bikes, and challenging the adults to a game of ping pong or foosball. The game room was the center of the fun. The Sonos sound system was a real highlight. The music could be played both inside and out. The property was more than spacious for our party of 4 adults and 5 children, and included ample parking. The location was close to shopping, restaurants, and even closer to the beach (across the street). The home was beautifully decorated and very clean. I would recommend this home and would be pleased to return for another stay at Plantation House.
