Two Thumbs Up!!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in the group raved about this beach house. The furniture and bedding were all new or seemed like it- something we have seldom found in larger home rentals, but for our group of pickier females, it was noticed and appreciated. There were 4 children under the age of 4 and the house was perfect for us- two pack and plays, a highchair, Maclaren strollers, baby gates, pool toys, and a sleeper in the master bedroom that we did not realize was there. The pool was a good size, while we enjoyed the pool area as we were grilling out and having a family ping pong tournaments. The location was great- we were about a block from a church with a large playground that had play areas for our little ones and another area for the older ones. The beach access was walk on level and directly across the street. This was a life saver for us as going up and down stairs with beach gear and babies is not easy. There was a great coffee shop and restaurant a block away. Destin area had great shopping for the girls and golf for the guys. We didn't end up going deep sea fishing but hope to do that next time. I would recommend this house and Destin to any one traveling with children.

Destin Family Vacation!.

  • 4 of 5

The house was amazing size, it worked out beautifully for our family, three generations.

We were 8 adults and 6 children under age 7.

We were able to check in early as the house was already "cleaned" I did go over the kitchen and especially the pool house could have used vacuuming and in one of the bedrooms we changed the sheets as it smelt smoke and was not cleaned.

Overall a very nice and comfortable place...

The pool great for afternoon use, although slippery when wet.... lots of toys for the children, incl a couple of porter cribs, a big and two small strollers, and a very handy wagon to bring beach toys or kidsin...a great bonus!

Pool table and Ping Pong table fun for kids and adults.

The Beach was simply amazing, although a small area for the public, but literally across the street.

It was lots to do and shopping near by.

Overall a very comfortable home and Jeff so quick answering questions, thank you!

We had a great family vacation!

Owner's Response: We would like to thank this guest for staying at our home and are glad that they had a great time and enjoyed the house, pool area and close proximity to the beach across the street! We understand that many guests have been driving a long way and can't wait to get into the house and begin their vacation before the scheduled 4 pm check-in. Therefore, we do let all of our guests know that they can check-in early if the choose and the cleaners are done, but that the cleaning inspector (who comes by 4 pm) will not come into the house if the guest is already there, and to therefore let us know of any cleaning items that need attention and we will have them addressed quickly. As this guest checked-in early, I wish they had contacted me as we could have had someone take care of these items in a few minutes. Also, I apologize for the burnt smell on the one set of sheets, as we use a commercial laundromat and every now and then they can be dried on too high of heat. We would love to welcome this guest back again in the future if they return to Destin!

Extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our extended family including 9 adults and 5 children. There was lots to keep the kids occupied - pool, pool table, ping pong, sand pit, etc. And the beach toys, chairs and wagon were a great surprise!! Having the beach access practically across the street was nice too. The only complaints that I heard from our family was that the "comforters" on the beds were a big skimpy. They were duvet covers without a duvet. And the lack of chairs on the front decks. Other than that, our family really enjoyed our time together and would recommend the house to others we know.

Owner's Response: I am glad that this guest had a great time at our home and enjoyed the pool area and beach right across the street! I am sorry that the duvet covers felt a bit skimpy. Over the years, we have tried using duvets and not using them, and found that some people like them and others feel that they are too warm based on how hot it gets in Destin. Therefore, we decided to go with just duvet covers for those that like a light feeling, and we then stock all the closets with blankets that people can put on top of the duvet if they want a heavier, warmer feel. Thank you for the input about more chairs on the front porch decks. We have 12 chairs on the front decks, and didn't want to put more as we didn't want it to look "junky" from the street if you are walking by. However, there are numerous chairs by the pool on the back side of the house that guests can put on the front porches if they would like. Thanks again for staying at our home and we look forward to hopefully having you back in the future!

Second time staying here and it was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed in this house last March and decided to come back because of our great first experience. It was just as wonderful the second time, too! The owner, Jeff, was easy to reach and very helpful with any questions we had not only while planning the trip, but also once we were in Destin. The house is in a great location: close (less than a minute walk) to the beach, a Publix, several restaurants, and other fun things to do such as mini golf and bowling. The outdoor pool is always a hit, as well as the pool table and ping pong table. We had a total of 22 people staying in the house and it was never too crowded. There's plenty of room for food and storage with a large pantry and 2 refrigerators! It's also great to have a cook-out using the outdoor grill. I definitely recommend this house and its owner; 5 stars!

Perfect!!!

  • 4 of 5

All in all our stay was perfect. Plenty of room and perfect location. Two houses down is public access to the beach although on both sides of that it's roped off and reserved for hotel/condos lined all along the street. So the public area is rather small so get there early if you want a spot.

There's lots of things at the house not listed that I'm assuming previous renters just left behind. For example tons of containers, irons, and lots of beach stuff. So I'd wait til you arrive before making any purchases to see what's there.

The house was clean and very well kept. We had 12 guest and everyone was very pleased. Wifi doesn't work out in the pool house though, that was the only bummer. Owner answers email with questions very promptly and was always nice. We never had any reason to call them. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone!! You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a great vacation at our home with your family! I apologize that the Wifi signal was not strong enough in the carriage house. Thank you for letting me know, so that I can have someone take a look at it and get a stronger and/or new router if needed. I apologize that I did not communicate the public versus private beach clearly to you prior to your stay. Most of Destin has condos on the beach which have some private beach in front of them. However, in the entire state of Florida, that private beach ends and public beach begins far from the water’s edge. That means in addition to the public beach access at this house, which is one of the larger ones in Destin, there is a lot of room between the private beach and the water that is all public beach and you can sit anywhere in that area as well. Thanks again for staying at our home and we look forward to having you back again in the future!
