traveler reviews for this destin house rental


Review submitted: January 14, 2014   Date of arrival: July 27, 2013

Our large family takes a vacation to Destin every summer. This past summer we chose to stay at Near the Sea and we are already booking again for this summer. This house has it all! The little details of the house are what stood out the most. There are gorgeous sinks in each bathroom that give it so much character. Our family also loved location. We had easy access to the beach as well as a great view from each balcony. We highly recommend this house!!!

Love love love everything about this house!!!

Review submitted: June 19, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

Such a beautiful house that is well taken care of! Clean and equipped with everything you need!!! I loved the furnishings and decor, the chefs kitchen! And especially the pool!!! Our family lived in the back yard by the pool! Swimming listening to radio through the built in speakers and grilling out on the amazing grill!!!! I personally loved cooking out there and sitting among the beautiful garden watching the birds and lizards scurry around! The landscape is amazing here!!!! Shabby chic and plush!!! The loft upstairs is huge and has the view if a lifetime!!!!! And is like a mini apartment!!!! With a wrap around deck!!!!! The master bedroom also huge and beautiful views as well!! There were books to read for adults and kids, there were games to play, and toys and chairs to take to the beach along with the boogie boards!!! The neighborhood is one of our fav's and has become the only one we will stay in!! This was year two and we can't get enough. It's fun when it needs to be and quiet when it needs to be!! And a super duper close walk to the beach!!! Which has a bathroom and outside showers to clean off! The house also has its own outside shower for sand removal!! We rent bikes while there because you are so close to everything!!! Dining, shopping at the Destin commons, beach shops, grocery store and so much more!!! I highly highly recommend this house and this neighborhood!!!! I will stay no where else!!!

Owners response: So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! We hope you will be back soon!

Near The Sea is where you want to be.

Review submitted: January 27, 2013   Date of arrival: January 19, 2013

First of all, the location is just perfect for a wonderful view of the ocean. The house has wrap around decks on the 2nd and 3rd floor which offers a beautiful view of the sunset, while relaxing with a glass of wine and appetizers. The house is fully stocked with all kitchen utensils, as well as, a washer and dryer. With 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, there is plenty of room for family and friends to be together in comfort. Although we did not use the pool and whirlpool, I'm sure they would be a welcome addition during the warmer weather in Destin. There are many great resturants within walking distance and offer a large selection for dining. You could not find a more beautiful pristine beach. I have never seen such bright white sand and very well maintained beach to relax while taking in the sun. This was truly an outstanding vacation for us, and we will definitely visit Near The Sea again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
