traveler reviews for this destin house rental

Great vacation

Review submitted: August 16, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

Mamma's Happy was a fabulous rental home. We had 4 families (18 people) and we had room for everyone. The home was very nice and had all the amenities we needed. It was a short walk to the beach and having the private pool was wonderful. I felt like we were in a very safe neighborhood and Janet was helpful with any needs or questions that we had. The home was also very close to restaurants, Destin Commons shopping, Big Kahuna waterpark, go carts, outlet malls, etc. It was the perfect location. We look forward to returning.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: Thanks for the review, Kim! We’re so happy you enjoyed the perfect location of our home in relation to the walking areas, nearby beach, and the very short distance to all sorts of entertainment and fun activities. Please let us know next time you are in Destin. We’d love to have you and your friends/family back!

Review submitted: July 31, 2014   Date of arrival: July 19, 2014

We had great expectations coming into this house, and Mama's Happy exceeded each and every one of them! As far as location, the house is a short walk to public beach access: we were there in two minutes tops. When it came to the house, everything was perfect. We had a group of 16 adults and I don't think anyone felt crowded at any point in the trip. The spacious main floor provided plenty of space for the group to gather across the kitchen, dining room and living room with its open floor plan, and the bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious as well. I slept on the king bed in the master bedroom and I can easily say it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Added features such as a pool, smart televisions, outdoor shower, grill and washer/dryer just added to the convenience. (also: very close to a wide running/walking/biking trail if you are interested in exercising). In regards to customer service, the owners took care of everything in a very timely and appropriate manner--any questions that arose on my end were answered very thoroughly and promptly and all the details of our trip were handled well before we even packed our bags for Destin.

If you are looking for a great group house, look no further than this house.

Owners response: Thanks so much for your review of our home! We’re glad you liked the open floor plan, comfy beds, and amenities we provide. We strive to help our guests have a worry free vacation and feel that communication beforehand helps our guests understand what to expect. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to hosting you again on your next vacation to Destin!

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.
