Thanks you for a great stay! The house is absolutely lovely! The decor is so warm and inviting we just loved it! We had such a relaxing vacation here. You have thought of everything here, we needed for nothing! I thought for sure we would go to Walmart for things that we forgot, but no need, because you had it here! The kids loved the third floor deck and had a blast! We will be sure to look you up next year. Also thanks for opening up the house to my little Yorkie, Bella.

Great Place-Aug 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family gathering and the place was great. Everything one needed was there. The home was clean and well taken care of and the two porches on the front and the rear of the house were great for evening gathering. We even brought our Dog and the fenced yard was a great place for him. The location to the beaches, shopping and restaurants was very good with some within walking distances. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful, it basically felt like we were staying in our own home.

Should we travel to Destin again, we will definitely contact Denise again to stay at the same home. Its a winner.

End of Summer 2016

  • 5 of 5

We have a fairly large family and have been staying in this area for several years.

We love the quiet neighborhood and comforts of a home. We generally eat out only a couple of nights due to the crowds and prefer to create our favorite meals at the house. This house was fully stocked and included many items that I do not usually see in a rental.

The house was beautifully decorated and the porches and the yard was wonderful.

Denise was very helpful and even made sure the garbage was picked up timely.

Family Vacation plus Southern National Softball Tournament at SandDollar

  • 5 of 5

My 14 year old daughter plays softball for a travel team out of Carrollton, GA. July 18 began the Southern National's in Destin, FL for 14 and under girls. Teams from GA, Kentucky, Louisana, Texas, and more participated in this week long tournament. My Mother, Daughter, and a friend stayed at SandDollar for a week. It's much better than a condo. The house is decorated like a beach home with EVERYTHING you need and more. SandDollar has a calming, relaxing, atmosphere with a beautiful kitchen, open floor plan, front porch and back screened porch, and the most unique landscaping I've ever seen. You never won't to leave. Beach is only a few minutes away as well as many restaurants and activities. My daughter was so impressed with SandDollar that she wanted to show all her teamates and their parents the house. Denise is incredible, making sure my family had what was needed for the week. Thank you Denise for making SandDollar, "one of a kind" and we will see you next year in beautiful Destin, Fl. My family vacation will always be at SandDollar.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Destin for years and this was one of our best stays ever!! The Sandollar had anything we possibly could have needed. Loved how homey it was with all the little extras. Loved sitting on the porch with the family and grilling out in the evening. The Beach was a few minutes walk from the house. We had anything we needed within a few minutes drive. Denise was so friendly and just around the corner if we needed her. Can't wait to come back next year!!!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week in late June 2016 and it was great! Denise was very nice and accommodated us on short notice stay. As mentioned in all other reviews, the house is nicely decorated and very clean. The home was well equipped with toiletries, kitchen necessities and had beach stuff to borrow. My daughters enjoyed sitting in the screened patio section reading books, playing board games, and watching the birds come to the bird bath.

The beach home is very conveniently located. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away! Grocery store, movie theater, and shopping plaza (Destin Commons) are all just a few minutes away. Would definitely recommend! We look forward to our next stay!

Fabulous experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose Sand Dollar in Destin as it looked like a nice place for us and our extended family to stay while attending our son's destination wedding. We have nothing but praise for both the house and all accommodations that went with it. The house was perfect. It was clean, spacious and adorably decorated as a beach home. Everything about it was so comfortable, from the abundant thick bath towels, to the quality bedding and the heavy rocking Adirondack chairs on the patio. The owner even had a basket full of pamphlets describing restaurants and attractions in the area. The house was also located in a lovely neighborhood and was just 2 blocks from the beach. It was hard to leave! I would highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.
