Atlanta, GA


The first thing we noticed upon entering the Chilley Gilley is the immaculate decor! The decor was rivaled only by the comfort of the entire home. I have traveled the world by plane (Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, etc.) and though we actually drove from Atlanta to Destin, this was possibly the best vacation ever and that's because of the comfort of the home. Our trip was in celebration of our mom's 85th birthday, and the home and the beautiful beaches and area of Destin made it a momentous and memorable occasion! We are already making plans to return to Destin and will certainly check to see if our home away from home (Chilley Gilley) is available!

I really enjoyed my stay at Chilley Gilley. Everything was nice and clean. The beach wasn't far away and stores were in the same area close by. I plan on returning in the near future with family and friends to enjoy the experience I had.

florida vacation on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

we try to get away with our entire family for one trip a year. this includes grandpa/grandma, two adult married children/wives and five grandkids all 7 years and under for ages. this year's trip to Despin was a first for us to enjoy the pristine beaches in that area and very comfortable accommodations at Chilly Gilley's.

the rental property is well maintained and very user friendly - including many items that can be used on the beach such as shovels, buckets, flotation devices, etc. the host family was very thorough in their communication to us concerning expectations and what was included or not. they even surprised us with a nice welcome gift basket that is always a nice touch.

overall we were very pleased with our experience and it starts with having a reliable place to stay that is nicely maintained. very friendly towards kids and has a wonderful pool area that is shared with other rental units on the property.

Enjoy the wonderful bike/running path located 2 blocks from the house, and is great for a great morning walk/run or evening walk/run and enjoy the view of the beach and beautiful houses for about 6 miles along 98.

no smoking allowed.
