Would Totally Recommend!

Review submitted: July 8, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

My family of 18 recently stayed at Mama’s Happy house in Destin, FL. This house is beautiful and walking distance from the beach. Our kiddos loved the pool and we couldn’t keep them out. The service was awesome! Would totally recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental home in Destin, FL.

Perfect location and super clean!

Review submitted: April 30, 2014   Date of arrival: April 18, 2014

This home was the best choice we have made in a rental. It's less than a block from the beach, short walk to shopping and restaurants and we even walked to church! We literally got in our vehical once in a week and that was my goal. It was so perfect for my young kids. They lived in the pool. Adults loved it too! If we had questions, the rental agency was very prompt. The only sad part was packing up.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car

Owners response: We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay, Jamie! We absolutely love our little neighborhood for the very reasons you mentioned - very easy distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, church, etc.

We hope you'll consider us again on your next vacation to Destin!

Momma's Happy Debut

Review submitted: February 7, 2014   Date of arrival: January 31, 2014

This beach property was amazing! Very easy to find with ample parking. Tastefully decorated with an unique beach flair with personal touches and the comfy feeling of home. My husband & I stayed in the private cottage with a view of the inviting pool, lovely sitting area with TV, mini fridge & coffee maker. Extremely comfortable bed & TV in bedroom. Great roomy walk in shower with an awesome overhead rain shower head. Group gatherings in the main beach house were great. Wonderful kitchen & plenty of seating for everyone. Great Location! Short walk to the beach, restaurants & shopping. Many other restaurants, shopping and spas only minutes away by car. Can't wait to return!

Recommended for: families with young children, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: And we can't wait to have you again, Linda! We're glad you mentioned the custom shower and how wonderful it is . . . such a great way to unwind after a day at the beach.
