It's always clean, the linens are always nice, and everything is impeccably maintained. You don’t have to worry about finding a home less than advertised, and we’re going to greet you upon check-in and wouldn’t be able to do that if we the home wasn’t exactly as promised.

50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

  • 5 of 5
Travelled to Destin, FL to celebrate parents 50th wedding anniversary. This house was beautifully decorated and very clean. Our travelling party had a total of 12 (10 adults and 2 children) and everyone loved it! We had plenty of room and did not feel crowded. The beach was a short walk (5 minutes top). Loved the beach cart and beach chairs that were provided. The owner, Jeff, was great to work with - he answered my email questions promptly and he even welcomed us upon arrival - which was a nice touch (brought us doughnuts from The Donut Hole - yummy). I would recommend this home to family and friends.

EXCELLENT HOUSE, EXCELLENT OWNERS!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had 17 in our group and this house was perfect! The upstairs room and cabana house was great for the teenagers and the new bunk bed was great for the little kids. This house is 3 houses from beach access, less then a 5 minute walk. Jeff, the owner, greeted us with the best donuts in Destin from the Donut Hole! He was super great and right there with any questions or issues we had at all and that means a lot when renting. We've rented a lot of houses for vacation and this was one of the best. This house is exactly like the pictures.....super super clean and spacious. The pool area is great but I must say our kids LOVED the basketball court! We will definitely rent from Jeff again...and hope to try one of your other beautiful homes next time! Thanks for helping make our vacation great!!

AMAZING VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
If you like a large vacation home, close to the beach, with a fantastic private pool, spotlessly cleaned, and tremendously well appointed, then this is the home for you!
The owner/managers Jeff and Terri are very professional, and live locally nearby. If you've rented before from large management companies, or out of state owners that don't address you needs, then definitely look to reserve this home. The beach is a short walk (maybe a block at the most), and the third floor wraparound deck has great gulf views.
Also, if you need a larger or smaller place for your family needs, they do own some other homes very nearby too! Give them a call or email, you'll be very happy that you did!
Thanks again for everything Jeff!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION HOME, NICE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of 22 (11 adults, 11 kids) stayed here for our vacation and had a great time. I was worried we'd be a little cramped, but between the guest house providing some privacy for the grandparents and the pool being well used, we were all comfortable. Jeff was great, and provided excellent customer service on a couple of issues that came up that were beyond his control. I wish all property owners I've rented from were as responsive. The house is in a quiet neighborhood, but very close to the beach and near all activities and shopping you'd want. Great choice.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
My extended family of 15 stayed here last week. The home is great, just as beautiful as the pictures. The beach access is just one block away and was easy to get to. The home is close to malls and grocery stores. The owner provided one beach umbrella and some chairs.

The pool was perfect for our little ones. Might not be great for teenagers as it was pretty shallow. The kitchen had everything we needed. A couple of things to keep in mind. Even though there are blinds on the windows, there are no curtains and the sun comes up early. Our kids were awake by 6am each day. Either because it is an older house or they have wood floors, you can hear every foot step above you. We made the mistake of putting our teenagers on the 3rd floor and they kept those of us on the 2nd floor awake until pretty late. We had one issue come up while we were there which was taken care of within hours.

The owner was very nice. We would return to this house or one of the owners other houses if we return to the Destin area again.
