Our house is located just across from the first pool in the neighborhood and the back faces Lake Katherine for privacy.

Santa Rosa Beach is a short 10-minute drive to the largest factory store mall in the country as well as all the family and adult activities of Sandestin/Destin. The great restaurants, shopping boutiques, summer concerts, artist fairs and continuous entertainment options on the 'Green' at Gulf Place Caribbean is just a short walk on the bike path. Golfing on the beautiful 18 hole Santa Rosa Golf Club with two holes overlooking the Gulf is less than two miles away.

The location of the house across from the community pool gives families the option of close supervision for their kids if needed and a diversion from the beach if needed. Parking for two cars is available in front of the cottage. Additional parking is available in the neighborhood 'Green Space' in the center of the subdivision.

Great Week!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great house in a great area. The Old Florida Villages complex is convenient to the beach, restaurants, walking/biking trails, Outlet Malls and other shopping. Beach Bari is well furnished with nice appliances and adequate cooking and dining utensils. Best of all it included a standalone ice maker that was great for filling the cooler before going to the beach. It also has TWO outdoor grills. The porches are nice with a beautiful view of the pond and sunrise. Goatfeathers restaurant is within walking distance and includes a fresh fish market. A new discovery was the "Local Catch" restaurant, also within walking distance which had excellent food, good service and reasonable prices.
The owner of this rental was very responsive to our questions prior to and during our stay. We will definitely be back again.

Owner's Response: THANK YOU for your review. We take pride in our property since it is our vacation home also. We pay a hefty management fee per rental even when guests book via VRBO. We do that so that our guests are well taken care of during their vacation. I have addressed your concens with the management company. We hope you will come back and give us a chance to impress you beyond your expectations.

This place looks great EXCEPT for 1 thing.

  • 3 of 5
I was highly interested in renting from this property except when I read that there was no mention of any internet access, wifi or wired access.

From my research of other properties in the vicinity, I have noticed they all provide some form of internet access to their tenants and would hope that this property could do the same. Doing so would definitely, in my opinion, increase traffic to their property and provide a better experience for the residents at a low cost (less than $30 per month). After all, this is 2011, not 2001, where we can access maps, restaurant websites, local park websites, and other nearby amenities that were once displayed on Rand McNally maps.

Let's be honest. Not providing internet, in any way, shape, or form, in this day and age, is just not a sound business strategy.

I hope the owners change their policy on this.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. You can usually pick up several wireless network connections and hotspots from the property. We had installed a G-Band wireless router in the past and the signal kept interfering with the other signals due to the close proximity of the signals. We will attempt to install a N-Band router and see if that works any better. Once again thank you for your recomendation.

Thank You for Sharing Your Home

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed your beautiful home over Thanksgiving Holiday last year. The house was very clean and comfortable with all the proper ammenities. The property felt like brand new. We enjoyed seating on the balcony every day and seeing the lake in the back of the house. Our kids enjoyed the pool while we kept an eye on them from the front balcony. Thank you for sharing your home with us and we look forward to coming back.

Beach trip at Beach Bari

  • 3 of 5
Pros: pool outside front door, nice floor plan, great a/c, grill out back, ice maker

Cons: bushes WAY too high so u continue use front porch - didn't even realize there was a shower head outside b/c the bushes covered it, floors were dirty, toaster didn't work, patio furniture dirty/rusted, couches need to be updated or thorough cleaning, need more kitchen supplies, no wifi capability, no sheets for the bunk beds.

I stayed in another house in same subdivison and you can definitely tell the difference between booking directly thru owners verse an agency. You can negotiate w/ an owner. The house was fine, but not as clean as I would have liked it.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments and have taken steps to remedy the issues. The landscape around the property has been totally updated along with several new kitchen appliances. We have purchased new patio furnitures for guests and the house (inside and outside, specially the tile floors through out the house) has been proffesionally cleaned. We have also added new inside furnishing to the property to make it more comfortable. We do not allow guests with pets since our kids are allergic to pets. Since your comments we have spent in access of $10,000 to update the property. I am sorry we could not honor your request to cancel your reservation a week prior to your arrival. I hope you understand the summer weeks are the main source of our income for this vacation rental. We have also addressed all these issues with our management company. I hope you will give us another chance in the future to make it up to you. We thank you for your comments and sincerly appologize for your troubles. Thank you.
