We really enjoyed staying at Lily Pad by the Sea. We had 9 in all. The house was just like the pictures. Very nicely furnished and well kept. Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of bath towels for all bathrooms. You will need to bring your own beach towels. Kitchen had all the appliances and utensils that you needed. We grilled out several days. We were not sure if the grill was going to work because it was missing some burner parts but we managed to get it lit. A repair man came by one day to look at the grill. He said he was getting some parts for it. Much needed. The private pool and deck were very nice. There were lots of bicycles in the garage and we used them and went bike riding. It was a nice ride around the community. The house overlooks the lake and we brought our own fishing poles and the kids enjoyed fishing at the lake but if anything was caught, you just throw it back in the lake. The house is very convenient to the grocery store, restaurants, shopping, and the water park. We actually went to the water park 3 days in a roll. They sold a ticket that you could use for 7 days. We took advantage of that and it was a lot of fun. I would also recommend The Back Porch restaurant. It was very good. We also went to Mello Mushroom which was walking distance and Another Broken Egg down the street. Candy was wonderful to work with and made everything very easy. I would recommend this property to others looking to vacation in Destin! We had a great time!
