Not a very great living experience!!!

  • 2 of 5

We were 4 families(couples) visiting this place. As per the description, there are 5 bedrooms, sea facing property...But in actual property is not sea facing and there are just 2 bedrooms...so 2 families could sleep in bedrooms whereas other families had to sleep separately/adjust at difference places...

The internet connection was intermitent and didnot work at all on 3rd day of stay...

Considering the cost we paid, our overall experience was not that great..

Owner's Response: I must say I am kind of in shock to be reading your review. Upon check-out, you informed me of how much you and your family enjoyed the home and want to come back. You never once mentioned the internet having issues. A simple re-boot of the modem would have done the trick. We give the full description of the lay out of the home on the vrbo website which clearly states there are only 2 king master suites and the top floor is sleeper sofas, half bath, and murphy bed. Then on 2nd floor there is a bunk room with full bath and a queen murphy bed and sleeper sofa in separate living area. Sleeps 13 with plenty of space for everyone to not be on top of each other. 4 couples would have their own private areas. Please read all 23+ 5 star reviews below this one as clearly this is a great home and does have ocean views. It never states it is ocean front! Guest love this property and we get a ton of repeat guest due to this.

Great destin getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

House is located in a great little community with private access to the beach! Also has a decent pool for small kids to swim in until the night, which right across the street from the house. Very spacious for groups. Everything was great, even had a big freezer perfect for after our fishing trip.
