Thanksgiving Dream

Review submitted: January 11, 2014   Date of arrival: November 23, 2013

For the past 25 years, our family has come to the panhandle of Florida for Thanksgiving. This past year, we needed a larger house to accommodate our ever expanding family. I found Island Obsession through VRBO and really thought it was too good to be true. There was room for all 17 of us with privacy we could not believe. The "great room" had plenty of space, and even with us in the kitchen we were able to remain a part of the socialization. The pool was heated at our request for a nominal fee and was used regardless of the cooler than usual weather. The location is great with the outlet malls one direction and other shopping very close by. The absolute best part was that we were together as a family. We have already booked for Thanksgiving 2014 and are looking forward to many more memorable times at Island Obsession.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway

Owners response: This family was like the dream group for us as being an owner. They were respectful of the property, CLEAN!! they washed and dried the linens..left things in very good order at check-out...etc, etc! We are soooo looking forward to having them return this season...and every season Lord willing! Thank you!

Wonderful Beach House!

Review submitted: October 19, 2013   Date of arrival: October 5, 2013

John & Dawn, your beautiful beach home, "Island Obsession" is even better than the photos and the photos are great!

I could not stop smiling after we arrived...The awesome kitchen, the 2 sitting areas in the large living room, the huge dining table and the PANTRY! made for a fantastic open concept living space!!!

Our family of 8 adults and 9 children (ages 9 mo.-13 yrs) loved all the comfy bedrooms and bathrooms! I mean...9 bedrooms!!! And we actually used the "futon room" on the 2nd floor to put 2 pack 'n plays for the twin babies...perfect! The kids really enjoyed having a TV in all the bedrooms. What a nice way to calm those kiddos down after playing all day...and it gave us adults some quiet time, too! :)

The kitchen was not only beautiful but so well stocked! Lots of good, sharp knives, cookware, dishes and glasses...and even plastic containers for leftovers! Thanks for anticipating the needs of people like us who cook a lot.

It was truly a short walk to the beautiful beach and wasn't even a problem for 62-year-old me with my arthritis!

Oh, and the washer & dryer are full-sized and worked great! Believe me, we was used a lot! Oh, and that reminds me...

My son left his wedding ring in the dryer and shortly after we left, we called to let Dawn & John know...they had already found it! We received it in the mail, as well as our deposit refund, a few days after returning home. Thanks for your promptness.

Oh, and I have to mention the big, beautiful private pool! We all loved it so much! It was so clean and warm during our fall visit. And we really appreciated that it was cleaned for us twice during our week's stay. Now, that's service! I also liked that there was a fence and gate separating the pool from the house.

Have I left anything out? I'm sure I probably have, but let me just say, to sum up....

J&D, thank you for opening your house to our family. We have been vacationing in Destin for 15 years and this felt very much like home. The pool area is sensational and was used a lot. Even better than the home was meeting you.....fellow Christians. We love Jesus too! We hope to see you next year! God Bless you!
