Great house, close to beach and nice pool!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 rented this property in October 09. It is just as described and pictured. Large kitchen, dining area and living room. Master suite is large with nice comfortable king size bed. Cool layout with 2bedrooms and jack n jill bathroom separated from front of house by screen porch. However, lil uncomfortable having kids sleep in separate part of house. They actually were very close in distance just odd?? By day 3 not an issue, just took a litle time to get use too layout!

I only had 2 items that I didn't love about property: 1) queen bed very uncomfortable and noisy 2) kids room TV picture wasn't very good! These two items are small though when compared to how nice everything else was for our week stay! The owner an mgmt company were both a pleasure to deal with as well!

The house is well maintaned and a very enjoyable stay! The pool was a nice size and there was a smaller 2nd one in front of addition that we never went too, looked nice though. The beach with kids was probably a 7 min walk, no issue very nice! The entrance had a nice gated area with clean restrooms and picnic tables. The beach area was as nice as any in area! Beach service was available, we didn't use it though.

Location was nice as you were close to outlet mall area and probably 3 miles from Wal Mart in Destin. You had quick access to Scenic rd or the main 4 lane hwy.

Overall experience was very positive and yes I hope to stay here again in future. Enough space with a little planning more people would fit! Love Destin and very happy with Return to the Sea!

End of summer fun...

  • 4 of 5
We had a great vacation! It was my husband and I, plus 6 other adults. The house was very spacious. We never felt cramped. We enjoyed the house its self, but the housekeeper did a poor job cleaning prior to our arrival. They just hit the "noticable" spots. They put dirty dishes in the cabinets, the floors had so much build up on them from not being mopped, that my white socks were black on the bottom from making one walk thru of the house. When we pulled the hide-a-bed out, there was trash from where they hadn't swept or cleaned under the couch. Of course this did not stop us from having a GREAT time in the house, because we really enjoyed the house. If we come back to Destin in the future, I would definately want to book the house.

Just FYI... I don't know if you pay for the gated beach access or not, but they advertise that there is surveillance, but the green wagon that comes with the house was stolen from the deck, we later found it after we were told that they do not provide surveillance. We did a neighborhood sweep and found it ourselves. :)

As I stated above, we did really ENJOY the house itself. You had no control over what the housekeepers did or the stealing of the wagon, but I wanted you to have a heads up. :)

Wonderful vacation for our young families!!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot express how wonderful the owner was to work with! The home was so unique and updated. Very nice! We had my sister and her family with two young toddlers in the main living area since they always woke up early, and then my husband and our two little ones, and another couple in the separate living area. It worked out very well. LOVE that there were locks up high on the patio doors and a fenced backyard for playing. Pools were very close. Wonderfully stocked kitchen. The wagon was a lifesaver for transporting 4 under age 4 to the beach--short walk, but could have been crazy carrying children! Again the owner is wonderful to work with. I feel that the rental company could have given us better information upon arrival--couldn't find the keys to the back bedrooms at first, and were given the wrong codes for the gates to the neighborhood and beach entry, but it all worked out. Would LOVE to come back!

Truely a quiet get away

  • 5 of 5
We were happily surprised to find that the two bedrooms were seperated from main house. this makes a PERFECT set up if you have teenagers like us. Everything worked in the house, it was very clean. Short walk to the beach, even shorter to pool. Wonderful and clean gated community. We didn't want to leave.

Return to the Sea

  • 4 of 5
The party is nice but needs some maintenance, in particlular the strike plate on the rear door to the lanai. This door would not close completely unless pulled tight. With a 3 year old in residence we were constantly checking this door. Also the bed comforters needed to be laundered. Some of the bath towels were still in the washing machine and the toilet paper holder in the master bath is broken. The wheels on the wagon were all flat and rotted. The wagon would have been nice with a 3 year old. The screens on the lanai need repair. These items do not stop the place from being usuable but if fixed would enhance the experience. The pool was nice and the walk to the beach was short. We had a great time on the beach and pool.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments regarding your stay at our home. We value feedback and use it to improve our service to our guests.

All of the items you listed are being addressed. I am sorry the wagon was not usable. It is only two years old so I am surprised the tires are rotten. They are being replaced.

Thank you again for your feedback and I hope you will consider staying with us in the future.

Oil free week

Overall, the house was just what we needed. Very comfortable. Had a few issues...but not with the house itself....
-The keyless front door codes didn't work.
-The web site misrepresented the home we stayed in. I was expecting a 3/3 for 10 guests, but when we arrived the house was a 3/2.5 for 8 guests.
-Delay in 4PM arrival because the house was not cleaned on time.

Owner's Response: Bill, thank you for the feed back and the 4 out of 5 rating.

I am sorry that you felt the website was misleading. The website clearly states that the house contains 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and sleeps 6-8 people. Please let me know how we could make this clearer so others find it easier to understand.

Upon reading your comments, we checked with the property manager and learned that the keyless entry problem has been resolved.

Thank you for staying at Return to the Sea, and I hope that you will consider staying with us in the future. We value our customers.
