It was a surprise weekend for our mothers 80 th birthday and Above the Surf was great. The property manager was VERY helpful and helped us with a situation with one of our family members that had foot surgery recently. Thanks to the owner and the property management company it was resolved.
The house was a perfect layout for our family! We loved the dining table because we could have our meals together. We had one family group that stayed up late and the first floor was great for them. The third floor worked great for another group with a baby. Nap time was not s problem.
Fabulous home and wanted to rent for Thanksgiving but already booked.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family and we will be back!
Oh by the way the view of the beach was fabulous!!
Recently myself and a group of friends stayed at Above the Surf. All I can say I WOW. When we turn right off of the main street in destin, the view didnt look too great, but when we arrived in front of the rental house we we're shock at how beautiful the rental was. Once inside we experienced the best part(the view from the second floor) It was very beautiful. We had exactly 16 people with us, all was in a comfortable bed. no one had to sleep on the floors. very spacious, the jacuzzi was a huge bonus. We spent quite bit of a time in the jacuzzi, very relaxing.
For the 16 of us that stayed at the rental house, we did not have to leave the premises at all. We frequently enjoyed the beach. Really loved the personal excess to the beach in your backyard. If the rental was not on beach we dont think we would have gone to the beach as much as we had.
A few of our friends decided to rent this beach house for their family trips. As for me I will definitely choose this rental house for future destin trips.
My family and I stayed at this home for a week in May and could not be more pleased. The sleeping accommodations were perfect for our family of 14 and the location simply cannot be beat. The home is directly on the Gulf of Mexico and the deck/hot tub space is out of this world. The listing description is accurate and the rental photos accurately depicted the property's appearance and amenities. The home was in overall fantastic condition and the property was clean and tidy. Five Star was there for us every step of the way from booking our stay, to lining up activities for us with the concierge service. We will use them again and recommend them highly.
Our week long stay at this home was truly our best vacation ever. The view from the hot tub that seats 8 was the best and was used nightly! The location had lots of parking and was close to everything Destin had to offer. All of the beds were super comfortable and the main living area was large and had that beach chic vibe with a lot of extras all around. It was decorated to really give that beech like feel. The family room on the 1st floor with the bunk room right off the beach made everyone happy. The adults loved the 2nd level living room with seating for 12 at the dining table and a kitchen where everyone gathered to enjoy lunch and dinner. It was very well maintained and you could tell it was newly decorated. Photos did not lie. The views from the living room and master bedroom felt like the waves were lapping at the front door. Truly spectacular! You will not regret your stay at this home. Only down side was the rain, welcome to Florida. We will continue to return into the future! Thanks again and looking forward to our return...
