traveler reviews for this destin house rental

A must stay!

Review submitted: June 7, 2014   Date of arrival: June 7, 2013

The place was great. Clean as can be and was furnished nicely. While the beach isn't right across the street, this house makes the walk worth it (very short, just a couple minutes). The pool right outside the front door is always an option too.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: So happy you all enjoyed your stay at Ocean Dreams! This 3 story home with views of the bigger pool is nice and well kept! The private beach cabana for Emerald Shores is just a short walk, maybe 2/10 mile away, maybe a 5 minute walk! Hop on the tram during the Summer! Look forward to your next trip!

Scenic views… a balcony on every level, private beach access, and located close to everything (Target, Wal-Mart, outlet center). From the moment we entered the gated access community, we knew we were going to have a blast. Bill greeted us with a smile and he was so nice. The home looks so much better than the pictures! The towels in all of the bathrooms were folded creatively like seashells, and everything was so fresh and crisp. There are TVs, dvd players, and a bathroom on every floor. Because the home is three floors, there is also a refrigerator, microwave, and sink at the top of the stairs. Incredible!!! They thought of everything! It rained all day Saturday, but we were able to grill out in the back yard and watch movies. It was perfect quality, family time. My mom and mother in law were so impressed with the place. They said, "It’s so cozy and peaceful, we feel like we are staying at a friend’s home while they are away." I was apprehensive about renting the beach home, but it was far more that we had imagined. The beach was so beautiful and literally within walking distance. The private entrance allowed us to go at our leisure without having to get in our car to get there. Our trip to Destin was truly memorable. We loved it so much we are already planning our next visit!!! I don’t know who Bill uses for maintenance of this property but they do a wonderful job. I would recommend this home and any other property managed by Bill to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed.

Review submitted: May 21, 2014   Date of arrival: August 17, 2013

I never do this, but I couldn't help but give this place 5 stars! Between being able to toss a rock in the pool and just a short walk to the beach and restaurants, this place is great. The house is outfitted with TV's in every room and slept all of us comfortably. Hope to go back soon!

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Owners response: So happy you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Dreams! The house is quite nice and the location cannot be beat! It sits by the bigger of 2 pools and has great pool views! The house is well furnished and can sleep up to 14 people with at least 4 kids on the bunks! The neighborhood amenities include 2 pools, a tennis court, basketball goal, and a private beach cabana right on the beach with picnic tables, showers, restrooms, storage for bikes & wagons, and a short order cafe during Peak Rental Seasons!
