Weather

Though most folks think of Florida as a winter destination, April and May are actually ideal months to visit the Panhandle, as day temps hover in the 80s, the water’s in the 70s, the sun is out most of the time and rental rates are fairly low. The summer months of June through August bring the full glory of the beach season to Destin with sunny days and temperatures getting to the 90s, but you’ll need to shop around early for good rental prices.

Enticing accommodation bargains are often available during the colder months of December through March.

The location was very convenient, just a few steps to the beach, couple of blocks from the grocery store and shopping. Awesome trip. We will definitely come back.

The house was beautiful. We enjoyed the pool and location to the beach. Even though it was a short walk to the beach- we did spoil ourselves with the golf cart anyways! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. We were not able to connect to the Wi-Fi but we didn't call and report it. We just had an internet free week. The only other issue was TV. There are TVs in all 5 bedrooms- however when it was bedtime- only 3 could be on at a time. Again- we didn't report this and just dealt with it all week. We had a wonderful time and would definitely suggest renting this home. In a few years- we may be able to make another visit. The only suggestion I would make would be to supply some beach items for guests (especially in a home this large). We typically rent condos and they usually provide a couple of beach chairs, umbrellas, and some kids' beach toys. Also- we loved that someone came twice during the week to clean the pool. Even though we showered after the ocean before entering the pool- the algae was extremely bad this year and some made it into the pool.
