We met our two sons and their families, as well as my husband's parents for a vacation that will never be forgotten!!! We had five children, two teens, and eight adults and never felt crowded.
On our arrival, we entered the house to the tunes of Bob Marley playing on the Sonos music system. Everyone scattered throughout the roomy house to find their rooms and get settled in. Everything was shiny and clean and the colors and the decor were beautiful!
We quickly found the doors leading from every bedroom onto porches and balconies on every floor with views that were amazing! We felt like we were in a magazine spread!! And the porch was to die for...wrapping around three sides of the house overlooking a yard with a white picket fence, a bike rack with four beach bikes straight out of a movie.
And the pool....beautiful, sparkling and so inviting. With a table and stools to sip a drink while watching the kids splash in the pool everyday after going to the beach (and showering in the outdoor shower to clean off the sand).
And my favorite spot...the swinging bed on the front porch. Every morning, I took my coffee and my iPad to the front porch and answered my work emails while swinging lightly in the breeze listening to island music and the gentle sounds of the beach!! Until the little ones came out to cuddle with me on the swing...memories that will never be forgotten.
Kimbie (the owner) and Randy (the property manager) were amazing and didn't miss a thing!! We felt so welcome! And most houses we have rented are stripped of everything in the kitchen and bathrooms, but not here. The kitchen was stocked with spices and other little extras that made it much easier to cook each night. Plus enough bathroom essentials t make it until we could get to a store.
We loved it so much that it is the house we will rent every time we go back to Destin! We had planned to travel to a different place each year, but it will be very hard to find a place that was this perfect...I don't tho punk it will be possible!,
And by the way, Destin was beautiful, also!
Thank you, Kimbie, for giving us the opportunity to experience Destin as if we were living the dream!!!
