Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

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.

We really enjoyed our stay!

The house is cute, clean and very well stocked. It's walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. If you are travelling with young children be prepared to put some of the decorations out of their reach. Other than that it's very save for small kids.

Very nice, well maintained house.

Very large house with a very well stocked kitchen. Very much enjoyed the front porch. Reasonably close to the beach. Fenced in yard was great for our dog. Denise is very easy to reach and lives only a few houses away. Highly recommended.

Very well stocked and great owner!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 stayed here and I wanted to tell you that this house is in a great neighborhood and is very nice. The big thing we noticed is that it's really well 'stocked' meaning there are games, pool towels, plenty of toiletries/etc. and it's got all of the things you need for the beach including a wagon and chairs. Very nice. We loved that Denise was so attentive and hospitable.

Great Destin Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Came at the beginning of May and loved our stay. The home is wonderful and had everything we needed from kitchen supplies to towels and beach toys. My girls loved the garden in the front yard which attracted lots of birds and squirrels. I appreciated the large red wagon I could load up with toys, chairs, umbrella, etc. to make our short trip to the beach easy and enjoyable. Denise is very helpful and friendly. We look forward to coming back soon!

Once again we escaped February in snow covered Ohio. We couldn't have been happier to arrive in Destin for our enjoyable stay in Sand Dollar. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Already reserved for 2016! Denise makes you feel so welcome.
