Guestbook comments from the owner
What a great week we've had at Skipper's Escape in Destin! This is a perfect beach house and it has been a great fit for the 14 of us from Texas!! Even though June grass messed up the beautiful water most of the week, we've still had a fun time, and the pool and deck here have been fantastic! We hope to come back soon!

We fell in love with Destin when we came on the BEST vacation ever in 1995! We began an annual vacation tradition that was awesome for our kids as they grew up. We love it so much here that now we live here and rent out our home, plus other homes and condos in the area. The people are friendly and the scenery just can't be beat!

Janet Kiley purchased this house in 2004

We owned a Gulf front condo for many years and realized we wanted something bigger so our kids could bring friends when we came on vacation. We purchased this house in the middle of constructions, which was great because we could add some of our own touches before it was finished (surround sound, etc.). This area of Crystal Beach has a great, short, almost level beach access, and the home is just a few yards away. We love the area because you have the conveniences of restaurants and stores very close by, yet the neighborhood is quiet and very family-oriented.

We tried to think of just about everything you need so you don't have to load your car to the brim with 'stuff.' Just bring a swimsuit and towel, and you are set! We really enjoy entertaining, so we furnished our home with conveniences that make entertaining a breeze. We hope you enjoy everything Skipper's Escape as to offer!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The house was just what this family of 10 (including a 7,5 and 2 year old) needed for an awesome vacation. The house and grounds were immaculate and as it says only a short walk to the beach. It had everything you would need for a vacation home including beach items and a kitchen stocked with every dish and cooking utensil you would need. The owner was there when we got there and then left her cell phone number in case we needed her. The private pool and patio were fun and inviting and when we weren't at the beach this is where you would find us. I highly recommend this home in the beautiful Destin area.

SKIPPER'S ESCAPE VACATION WAS GREAT!

Skipper's Escape vacation was great!
  • 5 of 5
Skipper's Escape is within a short block to the entrance of the beach (and paradise!), and within easy walking distance to restaurants, a book store, an electronics store, etc. The location is perfect. The house itself was huge, in great condition, very clean, with a great kitchen, guest house, pool, and more. I totally loved it.

HOMEY AND SPACIOUS. EXCITED TO GO BACK.

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at Skippers Escape three times now and each year it seems more and more like my home away from home. Lots of privacy for a group, clean and comfortable, lots of extras. The private back yard is complete with pool and grill. The owner was friendly and helpful and we can't wait to get back there next year.

Owner's Response: We love having you and your family back. We really appreciate that you consider Skipper's Escape your "home away from home." The floorplan is one of the things we love about our home. It makes it very easy to vacation with a group of family and friends.

We look forward to seeing you all back again next year!

GREAT VACTION PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This was a fantastic home and pictures were very accurate. It had everything needed and room for all. The carriage house was a wonderful get-away for my husband and me. Very short walk to the beach where we found beach chairs and umbrellas waiting for us. The pool was relaxing after a day at the beach and we could grill out in the evening. All 11 of us enjoyed this home and will definiately be back!!

4TH OF JULY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This place was beautiful. Convient to everything. Janet is awesome to work with and was helpful with all our questions. This was our destination to have a small family reunion. My family are frequent Destin vacationers and turned the rest of the family on to wanting to come back. Skippers Escape was the perfect place for us. Thanks for everything Janet and we will be sure to come back again real soon!

FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Skipper's Escape was perfect. I wanted a place that would meet the needs of my husband's family and my family as well. Our group included ourselves, our 5 adult children and a spouse, and 2 grandchildren. The pool house was perfect for the little ones, and the house was everything the description said. Upon arrival, we met the owner who had made sure everything was clean and ready for us. We had selected this house because we thought we needed to be near activities for the 25 -30 year olds, but found that the pool and beach were their favorite places to be. We had big family dinners 5 out of the 7 nights. The surround sound music was nice, especially at the pool.
Part of the group went fishing for red snapper on "No Alibi" so we had a great fish fry. They recommend the charter to anyone wanting to deep sea fish.
The beach is a little crowded, but having the chairs and umbrellas already set up for us was helpful.
We enjoyed the malls one day as well, but for the most part, enjoyed being together, relaxing.

We were very pleased with Skipper' Escape and would recommend it.
