Great location and beautiful house

  • 3 of 5

The house and location were perfect! Our only issues were that the owner of the house was overbearing in that she would drive by multiple times during the day, showing up without notice, and texting/leaving multiple text messages. It made it kind of difficult to relax knowing she could show up at any moment.

Another issue that we noticed is that in the instruction book she puts emphasis on cleaning and making sure the house is in order (which is completely understandable) but during our final clean of the house we found crayons and popcorn under the couch/coffee table -no one in our group is under the age of 22(no coloring here) and no one had eaten or made popcorn during our stay. Overall the location of the home was beautiful and very close to the beach! If you plan on choosing this home..I would recommend bringing toilet paper and paper towels

Owner's Response: I only stoped by the pool area one time to show the yard man what I need to work on after they leave. And I introduced my self. I had complain from neighbor that they were making too much noice after 10:00 pm so I have to notify them. Also they were blocking the side walk and I have to notify them not to block the sidewalk it is in the covenant. They lost the gate opener and I had to charge them that!! I drove by few times because I owne other property at the same area and had to take care of different issues.

Close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Although you don’t have the ocean view, the convenience of having an inground, private pool was a big deal for the kids. They swam early every day before breakfast and loved it. The house has bikes, beach toys, pool toys. Pack your paper products (toilet tissue, paper towels), liquid dish detergent. Dishwasher detergent was provided. Pack your laundry detergent and fabric softener. We did all of our laundry before heading home and that was a huge time saver. Pack a cleaning product to wipe your kitchen counters or any messes created. Rooms were plenty big enough. Children’s bunk room did not have a tv. We didn’t need that room but just giving a heads up for vacation planners. Big dining area. Kitchen was big enough for more than one cook. The space was great for us, although it’s really difficult to keep sand out of the garage and the house. Nora was easy for us to work with. Our deposit was received within 48 hours of check out.

Thanks, Nora and Michael!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us! The kids loved the pool; it was nice to have a beach alternative on red flag days. Nora and Michael were very attentive owners. They replaced a broken umbrella in a matter of minutes. When the ice maker wasn't keeping up, they offered to call for service right away. We had a great time, and would not hesitate to book again. One small thing, the TV channel selection was very limited.

Gorgeous home! Had everything we needed. Loved the private pool and short walk to the emerald coast!

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic. The owners were very responsive, stopped by to say hello, and came to fix something minor within an hour. We loved our stay so much and look forward to returning! The beds were comfortable, House was clean, lots of beach gear and toys available. Nice beach wagon for hauling stuff to and fro as needed. The walk to the beach with gear is about 7 minutes. The Private beach is not nearly as crowded as most other areas of Destin, which was really nice. The chairs and umbrella every day was such a nice convenience. It is one of the best perks!

The pool was so refreshing. Plenty of seating / lounging out back, in a private fenced yard. We spent a lot of time at the pool in the mornings and evenings.

Thank you Nora and Mike!

Great home with awesome location by the beach!

Nice and clean home within walking distance to the beach. Spacious for our family, added bonus to have an umbrella and chairs down at the beach. Plenty of toys for the kids to use in the pool and at the beach.

Paradise Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the month of February. The house was very nice with plenty of room and everything we needed.

The neighborhood was very quiet and close to beach and shopping. David and Nora did a wonderful job of making sure our stay was enjoyable.

We look forward to the next time we can stay again.
