We have been enjoying the area for many years. We chose this area because we love the white sand beaches and crystal clear, warm water of the Gulf.

A nice place to go to is Top Sail State Park. Panama city has some fun stuff to do also. For water toys you can go to Alvins Island.
Of all the years we have gone to Destin for vacation, this by far was the best trip ever! The bungalow was fabulous with all the amenities one could ask for. Having a golf cart was a plus. This was something we thoroughly enjoyed. We used it for taking a drive through the resort and at night to BayTowne Wharf. And it was a special treat. Pamela was fabulous to work with and took great care of us. We highly recommend her. Overall, we LOVED it and will be back next year.
Extremely disappointed. The house was dirty when we arrived (the owner did send someone over to clean the next day). The bunk bed was broken (and we saw a note from previous renter a month before us that said the bed was broken) which made a child have to share a bed. We are now 4 weeks past our stay and are awaiting our deposits-1 for the damage deposit and 1 for the golf cart. The back and forth has been ridiculous. The owner is blaming VRBO and VRBO is saying the owner needs to release the funds. So disappointed. Last time we used VRBO we had our deposit mailed to us within two days and the owner personally called to thank us for staying and made sure we received our money.
The Bungalo house was exactly what we were looking for when we decided we were going to Destin this summer. Dealing with Pamela throughout the process made it even easier. She was helpful throughout the booking process, and even right to the very last minute before we arrived. Working with her was fantastic.
The house is right across the street from the community pool- within 15 steps. Or a short golf cart drive to the beach. Having a golf cart for the week was something new for us, and was a delight on the vacation. Whether we were driving to Baytowne Wharf in the Sandestin Resort or to the beach- it was fun to have.
The house is beautiful, it is updated and modern throughout. The beds were very comfortable, showers clean, and the kitchen had everything that we needed to eat throughout the week. We used the grill one night as well. The front porch was nice to have to relax on the night it rained.
The Sandestin resort all together makes this place great to be as well. The wharf has everything you need, for children and adults. We went for live music on Monday, fireworks on Tuesday and dinner/ drinks a couple other nights. There are multiple options that we never got to try out because there is so much. Having multiple golf courses to choose from on the resort too also was convenient.
Overall- this is the place to be. We will be back!
As grandparents, we didn't know what to expect when taking 2 and 3 year olds with us. The bungalow met all our needs. The books, bikes and beach toys were a great addition. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Loved the pool directly across the street.
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the bungalo. We were looking for a quiet spot with easy access to the beach so the house and location in the resort were perfect for us. The house itself is very well furnished and has all you need. It definitely deserves five stars and we recommend it!
Our family and some friends (four adults and four children <7 y/o) recently spent a week at the Fins and Family Bungalo and could not have had a better time. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need for a great beach vacation. The owner is incredibly responsive (she was in Europe during our stay and responded to text messages almost immediately). We will definitely be back!
Walking distance to Baytowne Warf area and close to Grande Boulevard with restaurants and Imax movie theater.
