Nice home, but....

  • 3 of 5

The home was nice and comfortable, but the grills were outside of the pool in the parking lot and no other grills could be used at the unit, the beach was across the street when we thought we were ON the beach and not very private. The beach was used by several different resorts. Overall, a nice place to go, but I think I would choose something on the beach with a view of the ocean next time.

Enjoyable but Maintenance needed

  • 3 of 5

Listing description was accurate. Property was clean but needed maintenance. Rental company could be more responsive. We enjoyed the area, and the proximity to the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank You for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry the rental management company was not very responsive. I actually just recently changed over to a new Management company this week to provide great service to the guest and their needs. They will also go through the home to make sure any maintenance that needs to be addressed be taken care of! Thanks again - The Owner

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed for a week here. What a beautiful home! The owners provided everything needed for a comfortable and memorable stay. The pool was incredibly warm. My children had so much fun. Our family will be back without a doubt! We've already recommended it to a couple of families looking for their get-away home. Thank you for the memories!

Stay at "Piece of Heaven" on Cottage Row

  • 4 of 5

This was our family's first "beach" vacation. We chose our rental from the internet based on the listing description. It exceeded all of our expectations! The place was beautiful! The house was clean, the bedrooms were very large, the kitchen was modern and all the amenities were functional. We did have to call maintenance to unplug a drain in one of the bathrooms and they came the day we called and took care of it for us. The location of the house was perfect. Even though we did not have an ocean view, we were a minute's walk to the beach with a private beach entrance. We also were a minute's walk from the pool, which was clean and private and provided another activity for our grandchildren. We seemed to be central to resturants, shopping and attractions. We went to the Big Kahuna Waterpark, which was fantastic (we were there from the moment it opened until they closed!), and the Pirate's Ship excursion, which was totally geared to children. The parents and grandparents just sat back and enjoyed the boat trip while the "crew" engaged the children in a pirate's life for two hours! The rest of the time was spent on the beach, at the pool, or shopping at the outlet mall. Us women enjoyed the Coach store a little too much :) We cooked most of our meals in our nice kitchen but did venture out to two restaurants, one in Mirimar and one in Destin. We were a bit surprised to see practically the same menu at both places....with the same selections. The food was good but we expected a different experience at each restaurant and that was not the case. All in all, our week was wonderful. I would recommend this property to family and friends and I would certainly book this property again for our family vacation.

Our stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and pleasant. The front room furniture was quite worn and a bit dirty, but kitchen, bedrooms,beds, bathrooms were great. Easy walk to beach. The management group was responsive to problems and helpful with questions.

I would recommend this house to others. Very pleasant small community.
