Great home to relax in after a long NFL season.

  • 5 of 5

The home was great for relaxing after a long NFL season. It was close to the the beach and the location was close to restaurants and shops. The courtyard with pool and jacuzzi was my favorite. I will be back after next season!

A very special thanks

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful much needed vacation. We really enjoyed this home. The house is in a very convenient location and the beach was fantastic. Our mom is in-between treatments so the first floor bedroom was much needed for her. We also had plenty of room in the house for all of us. We spent most of our time hanging out in the private courtyard by the pool. The home was very clean and the owner and manager were always easy to get ahold of if we had questions. The upstairs bathroom toilet handle wasn't working so we texted the manager and someone fixed it the next morning. We weren't sure we could afford this home but after speaking to the owner he made it fit into our budget. We can't describe in words how much that meant to our family. We can't wait to come back!

Gorgeous property - great location

  • 5 of 5

I organized a family reunion in summer of 2016, and they had a number of requests. The owners handled their requests with grace and good humor. (I stayed nearby at my parents' house.) I may not organize a family reunion again, but I would definitely stay at this property.

Wasn't as nice as I had hoped it would be for the money!

  • 1 of 5

The pictures on the VRBO site were nothing like the actual residence. The house is really only 4 bedrooms and three baths. The so called fifth bedroom is a closet with bunk beds, no window, and it is in the upstairs master bath. The guest house had the sixth bedroom and fourth bath, so it was kind of misleading. The pool and hot tub were a lot smaller than the pictures made it look and the lanai needed to be swept and the pool net was in two pieces with a bunch of gunk inside it. There were several wall lights in the lanai hanging by a thread. There wasn't a pool vacuum and the "pool remote was no where to be found The landscaping needs a lot of work.The house was not as clean as you would think it should be. All the drawers in the kitchen need to be cleaned out; the towels were like drying off with .sandpaper. Couldn't figure our how to turn on the TV in the living room (there were three remotes) and somebody had to come out and fix it so we could watch TV. Lastly, the walk to the beach was a hike. All in all, I was expecting better for the money. The house was probably very nice when it was built, but it needs a lot of updates/fixes. Would not rent it again!

Owner's Response: The bedroom layout is clearly stated on the website description and the picture of the pool is the "actual pool" so we aren't sure what we can do to better inform our guests. We have one of the highest guest return rates in the area so we will continue to make improvements. If anyone would like us to answer any details about this particular review please don't hesitate to email or call us. Sincerely Management

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the Destin area for the last 6 yrs. This house was the best price for the size and proximity to the gulf we have found. Most of the homes don't have a private pool or this great of location. Close to grocery stores, restaurants and convenience stores. The outlet shopping mall is only 10 min away. I highly recommend it. The kids also loved swimming in the community pool which is just 3 doors away and they met some great friends. The owner and manager were very helpful. We can't wait to come back next year!

House was not what I expectedp

  • 2 of 5

The owner Kevin was great and helpful, but the on site manager, not so much. Never got check in instructions. I got a text with check out instructions 12 hours after we left.

The main house has 4 bedrooms with an extra bedroom and bath in the guest house above the garage. Bunk beds in a large closet inside the master bedroom upstairs, does not make a bedroom.

The pool is only slightly larger than the jacuzzi.

The kitchen could only be considered gourmet if you don't cook.

It's a long walk to the beach. No beach chairs or toys.

We did not check in early, but the house was not clean.

Many, many things throughout the house are broken or have been abused to the point that It was not a comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: It is very surprising to us that you had so many issues with our home since you never reached out to us until this review. We will be sure to discuss this with our cleaning service, linen service and maintenance person. Our home is 0.27 miles to the gulf and the bunk room is off of the master king bedroom as discussed in our email conversation before your stay. We appreciate some of the feedback as it will help us perfect our customer service.
