vacation rental description

The ultra-luxurious and spacious Gigglin’ Marlin is full of thoughtful details, high-end upgrades, and unique amenities you won’t find in any other home. From the large bunk -rooms to the roof top patio and the expansive pool and sun deck, visitors will be surrounded by luxury and elegance throughout their stay. Located in the exclusive gated community of Destiny by the Sea, Gigglin’ Marlin is just steps away from the beach and offers sweeping beach views from most if its’ rooms.

Guests to this Mediterranean styled home are welcomed by a large sun deck, complete with a pool and Jacuzzi. The patio has plenty of room for lounging and relaxing, as well as a large Viking Grill, wet bar, flat screen television and both café and formal seating. Just inside the French doors is a spacious living room, complete with a large stainless steel refrigerator, additional sink, flat screen television and plenty of comfortable seating. Guests with small children will appreciate that the access doors to the pool are alarmed, so younger guests can’t slip outside unnoticed.

There are three sleeping rooms on the first floor. The two large queen suites include private bathrooms, which boast spa-worthy showers, complete with luxury rain-heads. The unique bunkroom comfortably sleeps eight, with three double beds and two single bunks. All the double bed bunks are equipped with individual flat screen televisions. There is a shared bathroom with a tub shower combination on the first floor as well.

Upon ascending to the second floor, visitors and guests enter an elegantly furnished, open living room. Although the room is outfitted with a large flat screen television, the real entertainment will come from the glorious views of the water from the spacious balcony. The huge formal dining room has seating for sixteen at two separate tables. The centerpiece of the gourmet kitchen is the large island, perfect for casual meals and cozy conversations. The kitchen is equipped with a gas stove, two separate sinks, a large microwave, a double oven, and a warming draw. The kitchen has plenty of counter space and is equipped with beautiful glasses and dinnerware.

The second floor is includes two bedrooms, mirroring the first floor set up. The Queen bedroom is equipped with a flat screen television, and shares a large bathroom with the bunk room. The bunkroom sleeps eight, in four singles and two doubles. There is also a small powder room tucked away off the kitchen.

Heading up to the third floor, either by elevator or stairs, guests will enter a well- furnished game room. Too elegant and sunny to be called a “man cave”, this room displays outstanding views of the water from the large windows and balcony. The room is furnished with a pool table, Foosball table, card table, and an “old school” video arcade Golf game. Of course, there is comfortable seating, and an expansive flat screen television.. There is also a wet bar and fridge so your refreshments are nearby.

Guests lucky enough to stay in either of the third floor king master suites will be treated to breathtaking views of Gulf from their private balcony. The private bathrooms are equipped with a Jacuzzi tub, a separate water closet and a double sink and large vanity. The standalone shower has five individual rain heads. The queen suite also has a private bathroom with a luxurious stand- alone shower. All bedrooms are furnished with flat screen televisions. Tucked away on the third floor is a large laundry room with a high capacity washer and dryer. Off the balcony in the game room is an additional staircase which leads you the fourth floor roof top balcony, with dramatic views and room for relaxing. For guests looking for the exclusivity of a gated community, the amenities of a five star resort, close proximity to the beach, and a highly stylized, luxurious home, Giggling Marlin is the perfect choice.

traveler reviews for this destin house rental

Great Property, but we had several major non-working items

Review submitted: August 13, 2014   Date of arrival: August 2, 2014

This is a wonderful property for a large family. It is in a gated community, it has a large pool, and it is only a block from the beach entry.

But there were several major problems and some minor ones for a unit that cost over $16,000 for the week. One of the dishwashers couldn't be repaired while we were there and did not work the whole week. One of the dryers was broken. This dryer was repaired, but sounded like it would break again at any moment. The warmer drawer on the oven would not shut all the way. The double ovens took forever to preheat. We had trouble getting one of the showers to put out hot water. The built-in gas grill outside would not stay lit if the grill top was closed, and it smoked something awful with the lid up. Upon arrival, there were no remotes for two of the TVs. The can opener would not work. The toilet in one of the bathrooms would not flush. There was no muffin pan in the kitchen (so we bought one). The floors may have looked okay when we checked in, but they were in fact very dirty. Our guess is that the cleaning crew swept the floors but did not mop them.

On the positive side, Five Star responded promptly to all the problems, solving those that they could. They brought two remotes. They had the one dryer repaired. They brought a portable propane gas grill by for us to use. They bought an electric can opener for the kitchen. I was able to fix the one toilet that would not flush.

If we decide to return next year, I certainly hope necessary repairs will have been made.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children
