BEACHCOMBER STAY. JAN12-FEB27 2013

  • 3 of 5
This house is in a beautiful community. The house itself is very nice and a good size for a family. It is well equipped and there is little that you will need for your stay. Although our overall assesment is average, this is due to the quality of the living room furniture and master bedroom mattress. If you have back issues, this home may not be for you. For most people, the furniture may be acceptable, but for our needs, it was not. My wife has had back surgery and is prone to back problems.
I recognize that this is a rental property and that a landlord needs to make a profit. However, i believe that this home is overdue for at least new living room furniture. This could be a great property with a little investment and would rate a definate recommendation
On a more positive note, the property managers that look after this home, are GREAT. They are Kathy and Mike are very helpfull and responsive to any questions or issues. They made our stay more pleaseant.

CHRISTMAS ON THE BEACH

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was very warm and inviting. It was what we wanted, being close to the beach and convenient to shopping, dining, and sight seeing. This was my first time staying in a vacation rental by owner and I was a little inconvenienced that there were no basic spices or coffee for one morning. Fortunately we arrived before the stores closed and was able to get what we needed for the next morning,

I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Destin several times and
have stayed in this particular complex
twice, although this was our first year
for the beachcomber. We came with my
extended family and this house was
perfect for our needs. I would highly
recommend this house and would
definitely stay again. The beach and
pool are a short walk, which is great
with small children. I like to run as
well, and the biking/walking/running
path on 98 is perfect.

Destin, Florida is known as the ”World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” & boasts of being home to the largest fishing vessel fleet in the state of Florida. Fish from the beach or boat.
