We are a Birmingham, Alabama family that vacationed in Destin Pointe, and we loved it so much that we purchased this home and hope to live there permanently some day!

Laurie Shotnik purchased this house in 2012

We fell in love with the location and the house. Everyone has their own space...We love to sit by the pool in the morning and watch the ducks and water birds in Lake Caroline. Our children love the beach. We're in the heart of Destin and all that it has to offer in terms of restaurants, shopping and entertainment, yet we're in a very private setting with little or no traffic and security 24/7 monitoring who comes and goes.

We completely renovated the home this Spring with brand new appliances, new flooring, paint, and decor!

PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
We looked to find a house near the beach to accomodate a family vacation, which included our family and grandparents, aunt, and uncle. We could not have been happier with this home. It accomodated us all perfectly. The house is amazing!!!! Clean, like new, and beautifully decorated!!! The beach is a short walk from the home and when we didn't want to walk the tram was at our door to take us. We hope to stay in this home again in the future! Thank you!!!

GREAT LOCATION, BEAUTIFUL HOME & AMAZING OWNERS

We arrived late in the evening and where blown away the moment we opened the door - this home is beautifully decorated, private and very relaxing. The kids enjoyed night swimming in the heated pool while I unpacked. The owner was very kind and checked on us to ensure everything was ok. The house itself is very spacious and immaculate. It’s very well positioned within the Destin Pointe community. We enjoyed evening walks, the convenience to some great restaurants (Harbor Docks, Dewey Destin and Fudpuckers for the kids), feeding the ducks in the pond right outside the door, close proximity to the beach and the convenience of having our own pool. We will DEFINETLY stay here again this summer and in the years to come.

RELAXING TIME AT THE OASIS

  • 5 of 5
Property was wonderful, great communication with owners, heated pool and spa...warm enough to swim with my kids even with 30 degree temperatures in jan! Great location between a couple of beaches, 5 min walk to the sand even with a 1 month old baby...no problems. Swimming all day and half the night a heated pool was on the top of our list for a dec-jan vacation. House was clean and spacious, price was affordable,location is great, beach was almost empty cold but we played anyway, great vacation!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
The description and pictures were very accurate; sometimes these houses aren't portrayed as they actually appear, but that was not the case in this house. They accurately showed the size, shape, and position of the rooms relative to the rest of the house. The property was well-maintained, with a good store of towels, bedding, and lots of easy storage in all the rooms. It was also very clean!!! The owner was very helpful and checked in with us several times.

We've rented two other houses in Destin Pointe and this was by far the best and most enjoyable experience, especially the house. We had eight people stay in the house (our family of six, plus Grandma and Grandpa) and it wasn't a tight fit and was quite easy to accommodate us all. The whole ambiance of the area is very pleasant and easily accessible. Harry T's is always a fun place and all of the nearby beaches are wonderful. This was a fabulous experience and we hope to come again next summer!

PROPERTY WAS EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED!

House was immaculate. It met the needs of our three families perfectly. We really enjoyed the pool and all the sliding glass doors. Views from the master bedroom made us feel like we were in a greenhouse.

WOULD BE 3 1/2 IF THEY GAVE HALF STARS

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at Oasis this past summer for 9 nights. I'll start with the good. The house has its own pool, which is an absolute game changer if you're coming with kids. Now, the pool is not big, but it is nice. It's especially nice when you have a child who needs a nap and one who does not. We would be able to spend the morning at the beach, bring our 2 year old home to nap after lunch, and my 5 year old could use the pool while her sister napped.

The owners were very nice to allow us to have a 9 night stay, and we very much appreciated that as we had in-laws flying over from England to visit the grandchildren.

The house was very spacious with a nice open floor plan. The pool can easily be seen from the living area, and the outside covered area was a great place to watch a rainstorm.

There were a few things that troubled us on this vacation, though. First of all, the house was less clean than we expected. Perhaps it was because we didn't check in on a Saturday as most people do. But the floors and counter tops were gritty. We bought some cleaning supplies to rectify this. We found a small dead frog covered in dust upstairs, so it had been a while since the baseboard areas were dusted.

Also, the pool was very dirty when we arrived. I thought it was sand in the bottom, but when I tried to clean it, I noticed that it was a lot of dead bugs. However, the owners sent out a cleaning crew the next day and the pool was very clean when they left. Also, the grill ignitor was not working. I had to turn the gas on and manually throw a match inside the grill to get it to light.

Not to pile on, but the tread on one of the top steps came very loose, and my five year old nearly took a tumble down an entire flight of steps. Again, the owners responded quickly with a repair man, who did fix the situation.

Lastly, the cable and internet went out for a 24 hour period during our stay. Again, the owners were responsive and tried to rectify the situation. I thought the problem was a surge from a thunderstorm, but it was a bad connector outside, according to the repairman. It was just very annoying to have to plan a day of vacation to wait for a cable repairman. In fairness to the owners, I doubt they knew they had a bad connector, but it doesn't make it less annoying.

Nice house, but if I'm spending 5k, I expect far fewer problems than we had.
