Great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend 9/15/16-9/19/16 with 2 other families. Layout of house is great, convenient to everything & an easy short walk to the beach. BBQ a grill was great to have along with own pool. Overall we had a great time and would recommend this place to friends. Some small items need addressing just from normal wear & tear but overall it was nice.

Great house for a girls weekend

  • 4 of 5

Jimbo is a great owner and very responsive if you need something for the house. The property comfortably slept all 9 of us. The pool was larger than other private pools in the area and TV's were in every room (which was perfect to watch college football in different places). There are 5 blenders and 2 coffee makers in this house so don't go to walmart to buy another one. Additionally there are camera's in/outside of the house but it's for security purposes which is completely understandable. Overall a great weekend at an amazing house!

Just what we needed

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week and this great home for a much needed vacation. There were 14 family and friends. There was plenty of room for all of us and we spent most of our time outside on the deck or at the pool. There is lots of great outdoor space and plenty of seating. The neighborhood is very quaint and cozy. The bathrooms need some updating, and some of the bedding needs replaced but overall things were fine. We were all able to shower with good water pressure and hot water. The kitchen is fabulous and has the best knife set we've ever used and the laundry area is great as well. We brought a lot of start up items for the kitchen but it was well stocked. The appliance were really nice as well.

The beach is a very short walk and was the best beach we had been to in all of the places we have visited in Florida.

We traveled with teenagers and they were well entertained and had lots of things to do in the area. The location is very convenient.

The house is better than the pictures. The customer service was good, and the house is well maintained on the outside.

We give this house an "A" and would stay here again for sure. We didn't want to leave!

P.S. We did buy a new net for the basketball goal when we arrived.

Amazing house and so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here July 23-30, 2016. There were 14 of us, everyone had their own bed to sleep in and so much space to roam around. Having our own pool was an added plus for the kids. The kitchen had ample supplies plus! The walk to the beach was about a city block or less, very fast and easy to get to. The area is very convenient. It's just off the road that the bridge is on, so you're on the west end and closer to Walmart (honestly the only superstore in the area which I think is crazy but must work for the area) and closer if you want to do any activities (parasail, snuba, etc.). I would definitely recommend this home and would stay again!

Worst experience we've ever had at a vacation rental.

  • 1 of 5

Upon arriving at the Rental, the housekeepers were still there and 2 of them were outside standing by their vehicle eating while the other ladies were still cleaning. They finally finished but left blankets in the dryer for us to take out. Later that evening we noticed water on the Kitchen area floor ( so bad that we had to put towels down to soak up the water) which I sent James a text telling him about the water problem. He didn't reply that evening so I called him the next morning and he was quiet short with me when I told him about the water problem and he started with tell me that he saw that one of my yorkies pooped and we didn't pick it up. How he know that, is he was watching us on his security camera system that he has on the outside of the house that I thought was for security not for him observing us. We had 3 yorkies with us ( which James agreed to ), but seem concerned with them being there. The house needs repairs that the maintenance man was made aware of. We found hair on the bath towels in the showers and floors, sinks. There are 2 coffee pots in the house but one of them the base is all rusted ( should be thrown away ) and there are 5 blenders and only one works correctly....good luck finding the right one, we had to go through all of them. Some of the pots and pans were in bad shape. One of the skillets was corroded. The pool wasn't cleaned while we were there and we had issues with the grill that we resolved ourselves, andJames informed me that they don't clean the grill its up to the renters. The third floor gets hot and hard to stay cool up there. Sofa sleepers are horrible even for teenagers. The sheets were dingy looking or maybe that was their color !!!! This was not an enjoyable stay and do not recommend this vacation home. This was a family vacation with our sons and their family our grandkids. I was very disappointed at this vacation home. The house is an older home and should have some major repairs done.

We fell in love with the most beautiful beach in the world. The water is a deep emerald green. The sands are powdery white that glissen in the sunlight. And such spectacular sunsets. Nothing beats Destin, Florida.
