Guestbook comments from the owner
Mrs Hoffman



Thank you so much for letting us stay in your vacation home!! We had such a great time we didn't want to leave today. We had 6 adults and 5 children and had plenty of room. Your home is beautiful!! We really enjoyed the swimming pool. We used it everyday. We really enjoyed being close to everything, the beach, Wal-mart, lots of dinning, and entrainment for the kids. My husband and I even found a massage parlor, which was awesome!!! I wanted to let you know that we broke one glass and a bowl. We hope to come back soon!



Thanks again

JULY 18 - JULY 25, 2009 GREGORY FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Raven's Nest is absolutely gorgeous! The subdivision was really peaceful and quiet and the neighbors were fantastic. My family and I really appreciated the welcome basket and we thoroughly enjoyed the private pool. While there, we also visited Henderson Beach State Park which was also superb. This was one of my family's finest vacation destinations. We used to rent a private home in the Kissimmee area every year but this place far exceeded the Orlando area for cleanliness and hospitality. We were able to take our 17 lb. West Highland White Terrier with us and he too enjoyed the accommodations. I would highly recommend Raven's Nest to anyone. The eating establishments were numerous but we really enjoyed Landry's, Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, and a little place called Dewey's (great fish). We also attended church at the First Baptist Church of Destin and had a wonderful worship experience. Sam and Mary, thanks again for everything and we sincerely hope we can come back again in the not too distant future.

RESPONSE TO OWNER

  • 3 of 5
Thanks for the quick response. Have rented a number of times on HomeAways so have had a variety of experiences. Maybe some thoughts:

For the sake of full disclosure, might want to minimize the solar heater effect and put the info regarding the cost and need for the pool heater in notes on the property info. If I realized that was an option, I would have taken pool heat.

Dishwasher still won't work any better for the next person. Probably good info for the next rentar and is in the review, new or not, still doesn't work well.

Since your rental agent indicated the gate has been an on going issue, it might be good to make other users aware of the potential, otherwise is frustrating. Was not questioning the reason for the gate, was mentioning the gate is problematic.

UP AND DOWN - NICE PROPERTY BUT NOTHING IS PERFECT

  • 3 of 5
Nice property in a gated neighborhood about 2 blocks from the beach. Fairly typical vacation rental, starters provided for soap, paper towels, toilet paper, etc., so don’t forget the necessities.
We ate out a lot, but did cook in too. The kitchen is well equipped, but had to wash all the dishes, glasses, cups, and silverware before using, caked on and dried food. Annoying, but some people consider that a usual practice. The dishwasher is really lousy, realized after using why the dishes were dirty. Even a small load didn't clean well. Hand washed everything before putting in dishwasher so they would come out clean.
Beds comfortable. Baths: Master was great, the other smaller, but adequate. Lots of living space, Apple TV installed so lots of different programs to access.
Nice patio, small pool. Property info indicated solar heated, anticipated would be warm enough to use with the days in Destin warm, cool nights. The property management person was pretty clear, advising don't adjust any of the pool controls. I am okay with that. There was a waterfall on a timer running morning to evening. The pool was freezing and never got warm enough to use. The day we left the booking agent sent an email asking me to put the solar cover on the pool, the pool company wanted to turn the heater on! Duh, now I know why it was so cold, the heater was not engaged and there wasn’t a solar cover on the pool, found it in the garage, went ahead and put it on the pool. The water was wonderfully warm. Suggest you follow up prior to arriving with the booking agent to make sure the heat is on or the pool will be useless.
The agent is sort of surly and makes no apologies. She puts responsibility on the renter to make sure things are right for the next person. When I advised the pool situation, there were no apologies, just a message asking if I could go ahead and cover the pool. Boo!
Gated neighborhod and the gate is problematic. Not functioning correctly while we were there. Finally a repair, and seemed better. Called the booking agent and she said the gate is a problem, that is why she bolded and put instructions in red. I am not sure how that helps when she is 900 miles away but the evening I called she advised she would notify maintenance the next day.
Trash: You get 1 can to use. If you exceed, you are supposed to take extra with you. Dump it at McDonalds or check as luggage on the plane? Out by 10a, but wash and fold all towels. Better hurry if there are 7-10 of you!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed you stay and will address your concerns. Dishwasher is new in Nov 12 and high end, not sure why dishes had not gotten clean, we tested the dishwasher in Dec and it ran just fine and it had very high customer ratings when we purchased it. Sorry you had that experience. Pool is solar heated and is equipped with solar cover which is stored in the garage when not in use. The rental agreement states the use of the solar system is weather dependent and in the winter, early spring, and late fall air temp will chill and cool the pool off quickly. The rental agreement offers use of electric pool heater for an additional cost during the cooler months, however the guest didn't request its use. We recommend requesting the electric heater during the cooler months. The guest following you requested the heater, with that being said, the pool guy turned it on the day before they arrived so it was ready for them to use. Security gate works and is very helpful to keep traffic from cutting through our neighborhood, there was a maintenance issue with the gate this particular week and was resolved quickly by the HOA. There are three trash cans for guest use, but out of respect for arriving guest, we ask that the guest leaving only use one of the three when departing so the arriving guest have a place to put their trash. There nothing worse then to have the prior guest leave an overwhelming amount of trash for the arriving guest. We do request if you have excess trash to take it with you. If guests put out the trash for pick up there should be no reason for them to use all three trash cans provided. I the owner, live in MD but I'm very customer service oriented and can be easily reached via email, cell or text during your stay. I also have local full service property manager and wonderful neighbor who helps when necessary. I'm sorry you didn't have a better experience while you were at Ravens Nest.

WELL KEPT, VERY CLEAN VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at Raven's Nest and can't wait to go back again. The house was very clean and well cared for. The ability to take our dogs with us was a huge plus. It was a joy to lay out by the pool during the day, the solar heater was a great extra. Location is fantastic, a short walk to the beach, short drive to our favorite restaurants, or off to our favorite golf courses took no time at all. The neighborhood was quiet, which helped the relaxation. Thank you again for sharing your home with us!

RAVEN'S NEST VACATION

Raven's Nest Vacation
  • 5 of 5
Words can't express how much we LOVED this home! The house is beautiful and spacious. All 7 of us (two families) had plenty of room and we all had our privacy. The master bedroom is wonderful and one of my favs was the reading room. The landscaping was immaculate. And the pool was GREAT - the kids started the day off in the pool after breakfast. And us adults enjoyed the pool too.

If we ever have an opportunity to take a Destin vacation again - I will be asking to come back to this house. We all did not want to leave!
