traveler reviews for this destin house rental

Awesome beach house!

Review submitted: July 19, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

We stayed here over the 4th of July week. It is one amazing house! The pool was nice and refreshing to come home too after a day at the beach. We will definitely rent this house again in the future!

Recommended for: families with young children, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Review submitted: July 22, 2013   Date of arrival: July 6, 2013

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at the 3 Little Birds. We were close to the beach and to shopping centers. We had 6 adults and two very small children and we had plenty of room. We have been to Destin three times and this is our first time renting 3 Little Birds. Of the three different rentals we have experienced this is by far the best one for our family. We made great use of the pool and it was great for the children to have the walk in steps. Kathy was good to attend to whatever needs we had.

Great, great stay for us!

Review submitted: July 20, 2013   Date of arrival: June 29, 2013

Great, great stay for us! We appreciated that the
pictures/info online were exactly as we found the
place to be when we arrived. Location to beach was
just as anticipated - a short, easy walk down a
sidewalk (passing 4-6 houses, then Camille's
Restaurant) and then across a street to a public
beach access entry point. House was clean -
bathrooms, kitchen - everything! And it was
decorated so well - updated, fresh colors and decor
with very tasteful hints of a beach theme sprinkled
throughout the house. We had a family of 4 and
family of 5. Plenty of room for the 9 of us without
feeling like we were "on top of each other." The
private pool was really nice for our 2 families. Great
location to beach, to restaurants, etc. A good
balance of feeling "in it" but also quiet w/ homes vs.
condos in that area. This was our first time to
Destin - can't beat those beaches!! We'll be back!!
