We are a recently (Jan 2013) retired military family. We met in Destin 22 years ago when we were both on active duty in the United States Air Force. One of us is from Wisconsin and the other Massachusetts. The military has had us living all over the country. We've lived in Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Alabama, and Massachusetts. Of all the places we've been, Destin is our favorite. It could be because we met there...or maybe because our first child was born there - or maybe its just the beauty of the place! Once all of our children graduate from high school, we plan to make Destin our home.

M & C purchased this townhome in 2013

We picked this property because of its location on the beach. Our kids LOVE it here!

We are gulf front! We have our own private beach. There is nothing quite like sitting on your porch during a beautiful sunny day or a stormy rainy day and just watching the ocean. Sometimes you get blessed and see dolphins playing in the water...sometimes you just enjoy the sun rise and sun set.

We've tried to make 'You Are My Sunshine' a place we love to stay. We've added new bedding, decor, and other conveniences. We plan to keep improving and updating the furnishings on an on-going basis.

My family and I stayed for a weekend at YAMS in February. Beautiful time to be at the beach!! Convenient location for restaurants and shopping. The townhouse is well appointed with flat screen televisions, premium counter-tops and appliances, beautiful flooring, and WI-FI. Our family of four was able to spread out over the three floors. The private beach is right off the 3 level back deck. I highly recommend this rental for anyone looking for top-notch accommodations with beach front, easily accessible to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

I saw theictures on line but was not expecting to walk into such an amazing place! First I went for the view which was breathtaking, and so peaceful, then we went to check out which room to sleep in. I have to say the beds were so comfortable and the sheets so cozy! I slept like a baby, and that's hard to do with a bad back!
The kitchen had everything I needed and wanted and the living room served its purpose at the end of the night when we hung out and even watched some tv on the big screen.
The location is perfect, only minutes from the outlet mall and many restaurants.
My family would go back any time it was that wonderful. The owners did a great job and made us feel welcome and were available to answer. I have two kids and they loved the house and really loved the beach, they want to go back in the summer!

Inside and out, YAMS delivers. Since we were only able to stay for a few days, being directly on the beach was the perfect way to get the most out of our time. On the beach with easy access to Hwy 98 is ideal.The owners have harmoniously brought the peaceful hues of teal, sage, and blue from the beautiful gulf waters into the living space to create a gentle and relaxing environment. Yams is a well-equipped facility with surprisingly hospitable personal touches. No problem finding what we needed! The lower "muck deck" with its shower was the perfect place to control the constant flow of sand and recreational equipment. I particularly enjoyed sitting on the two upper decks for my morning coffee.

Great Beach Getaway

This was an excellent vacation spot for my family. The layout of the condo was perfect with the four bedrooms. The amenities were well beyond our expectations. Being able to view the beach and ocean from the master bedroom and the living room could not have created a more relaxing environment. Probably the one thing I enjoyed more than anything was being right on the beach which allowed quick and easy access to and from the beach. And the beach and ocean were beautiful. This has to be one of the few beach vacation spots I have visited that was not over-crowded. There were times when I felt we had the whole beach to ourselves. I am looking forward to coming back!
