What a wonderful week we had at Casa Galante! The house is in an amazing location on Miramar Beach, within walking distance to the Whale's Tail and the area's newest resturant, the Surf Hut! There were 13 of us that stayed in this amazing home and there was plenty of room for everyone! The pool was heated when we arrived and the management couldn't have been more accomodating with our questions! This is our second year in a row staying at this lovely home and we can't wait to return! It's our favorite vacation of the year! Our only request would be to replace the old grill with a new one! Thank you "Casa Galante!"
This was our 3rd year staying in Destin on Labor Day but first time booking through VRBO. Kim was very helpful and quick to answer any questions or inquiries we had. They provided us with very detailed information in our email regarding the house and what we needed to know. The whole transaction went very smooth.
Our house the Casa Galante was awesome. Not only is the house huge but its it has a luxurious feel to it that made the whole experience that much better. The pool is a great size and faces Scenic Gulf Dr. The balconies are huge and provide a great view of the beach. I could go on and on with this house. It's well worth the money and won't dissapoint.
The only small negative thing I would say were the rules of the house were a bit constraining. We kind of felt like we had to be very, very cautious. Which is somewhat understandable since the house is full of upgrades and gadgets.
We spent a week at Casa Galante with three families and total of 6 adults and 7 children. The house was perfect and was able to accommodate all of us with one room never even being occupied. The view from all three levels to the beach is breathtaking. The bedrooms were so spacious and you truly felt like you were at a resort. The kitchen had ample space and allowed us to cook dinners every night. The out door area was a hit with both the kids and the adults. The pool was big enough for all of us and allowed for countless hours of fun and games. The outdoor grill made it easy to grill out every day.
The location of the house to the beach was awesome and the chair and umbrella service that came with the property was great. It was so nice to be able to go back and forth from the house to the beach throughout the day.
We were greeted by Kim and Alex (property managers) on our first day within the first hour. They took the time to show us around the house, explaining how to use various items throughout the house and ensuring the accommodations met our expectations.
We have vacationed at many different properties and this was hands down the best. The amenities of the property, the location, and the service from Kim and Alex make this first class all the way around. Thanks for making our family vacation so enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
The house is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Our party consisted of 6 adults and 7 children (ages ranging form 7 - 18). The house perfectly accomodated everyone. The pool was used quite a bit by the children. However, don't be deceived by the picture of the pool area. The pool does not have a hot tub. The raised portion in the picture is some type of filtering/overflow system, I guess. The owner's description must be referring to the jets in the master tubs. Also, the picture showing a view of the beach from a balcony does not appear to be taken from this house. This house is not situated on the beach. There is no view of the beach. Simply put, the view from every balcony consists of traffic, condos and many electrical wires. Before getting to the beachside, you must walk down a sidewalk, cross a busy street and travel down many steps. The pictures provided by the owner do not accurately depict the true setting of this home.
My extended family of 16 recently returned from a stay at Casa Galante. This home is a great find! We had four families, 8 adults and 8 children ranging in age from 4 to 15. The accommodations were perfect. The two large living areas worked out great. The large kitchen area couldn't have been more perfect. The beach access is right across the street and away from the crowded condo beach area which was a perk. The pool is larger than many private pools we've had in the past so the 8 children with us were very happy. I would highly recommend this house - you will not be disappointed!
We had 4 families stay at this house recently and it was an amazing experience. We had 8 adults, 5 young children, and 2 babysitters and it was very comfortable for all of us. We have stayed at several homes in the Destin area in past years and this house was by far the best. The house was very clean and well maintained. The pool and pool area were bigger and better maintained than most houses. The beach area was right across the street and not crowded at all. The house is located near everything you could need. I would recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a place in the Destin area.
