About the Owner

Hello and Thank You for visiting White Sand Vacation Rentals! We are delighted that you are considering a vacation in Destin. It seems like yesterday that we too were planning a trip to Destin, FL. After sitting here on the whitest white sand beaches, gazing out at that breathtaking teal blue water, we knew this was the place we wanted to call home!

Destin is where Sarah and I have been happily married for 7 years, started a family, started a business and most importantly where we both started our personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. It is our pleasure to raise up both our family and our business in service to Him. God has blessed us with 3 little boys ages 5, 3 & 1 so far and we are still hoping for that little girl :). We hope that you enjoy Destin as much as we have. If you have any questions or need anything at all we are always just a phone call away.

Kind Regards, Trevor and Sarah Ladner

Our Family Staty at the Big Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Each year we have a family vacation in Destin. People come from Arkansas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Virginia. Over the past several years we have stayed at the Big Beach House. That is a testimony of our experience there. The property fits our size, pool, porch, and being close to beach requirement. It is extremely well maintained and Sarah and Trevor have been great.

STAYING IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

WAKING UP TO THE SOUNDS AND SMELLS OF BEACH LIFE IS PARADISE TO ME. IF YOU HAVE A LARGE FAMILY WITH LITTLE ONES , THEN THIS HOUSE IS PERFECT. EVERY BEDROOM HAS IT'S OWN BATHROOM. IT HAS A VERY LARGE KITCHEN WITH A BIG FAMILY STYLE TABLE FOR TELLING STORIES OF OUR DAYS AT THE BEACH! HAVING THE POOL RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR BACK PORCH IS A PLUS FOR LATE AFTERNOONS . WE LOVED GOING OUT TO POMPANO JOE'S , MCGUIRE'S, AND OUR LATE NIGHT SPOT- O'QUIGLY'S.

WE HAVE ALWAYS RENTED THIS AND OTHER PROPERTIES OWNED BY THE LADNERS OVER THE YEARS AS THEY ARE ALWAYS IN REACH AND RELIABLE FOR ANY PROBLEM.

I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS AND ANY OF THE OTHER HOUSES THEY OWN AS AN EXCELLENT VACATION SPOT FOR FAMILIES . HOTELS DON'T OFFER YOU A GOLF CART FOR THE WEEK IN DESTIN !!

ALOHA

Pleasant and Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Big Beach House for Spring Break 2015, along with 3 other families. We loved how each couple had a master bedroom, and the kids shared the adjoining rooms with the king and bunk sets. We also thought the pool area was spacious and great for hanging out as group. The screened in porch was a nice amenity, as of course was the golf cart! The only issues we had were with the quality of a couple of the faucets (mainly kitchen sink and kids bath) and the dryer (loads were sometimes still damp even after multiple cycles). But overall these were minimal.. the house had all that we needed, and provided a comfortable layout as well as stylish decor. Would definitely recommend to any multi-family groups looking for a nice stay near the beach.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Big Beach House for 4 days and had a great experience. The house was spacious and the furniture was beautiful (still can't get over those beds) and very comfortable. The kitchen and dining areas were large and accommodate several people at the same time. The place was sparkling clean. The private pool being heated was a big plus for we had a few cloudy/cool days. The kids would have spent the entire time in the pool if we had Let them. Having the golf cart to drive the short ride to the beach, Destin Commons Mall and the Fresh Market was a big plus. So much easier than maneuvering a vehicle. Had a wonderful time in the shopping mall, so many great little shops and such friendly people. All we needed was more time, hopefully we will have many more visits in the future. Thank you Trevor and Sarah for making tthis a vacation to remember.

Location

From the Owner

This property is very special to us. We used to call it the 'Little Beach House' as we bought this property with a little old 1940's beach house on it. The location of this home is outstanding because it is so close to the Pompano St. Beach access. This access is one of the few in Destin that does not have stairs, which makes it a highly sought after street to vacation on here in Destins' Crystal Beach. We rented it out for 2 years in preparation for the construction of the 'Big Beach House'. Now that time has come. The Little Beach House has been removed and we are in the construction process right now. The home is scheduled to be completed in January of 2013.
