July 18 - July 25, 2009 Gregory Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Raven's Nest is absolutely gorgeous! The subdivision was really peaceful and quiet and the neighbors were fantastic. My family and I really appreciated the welcome basket and we thoroughly enjoyed the private pool. While there, we also visited Henderson Beach State Park which was also superb. This was one of my family's finest vacation destinations. We used to rent a private home in the Kissimmee area every year but this place far exceeded the Orlando area for cleanliness and hospitality. We were able to take our 17 lb. West Highland White Terrier with us and he too enjoyed the accommodations. I would highly recommend Raven's Nest to anyone. The eating establishments were numerous but we really enjoyed Landry's, Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, and a little place called Dewey's (great fish). We also attended church at the First Baptist Church of Destin and had a wonderful worship experience. Sam and Mary, thanks again for everything and we sincerely hope we can come back again in the not too distant future.

New Years in Destin

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time in Destin and we could not have stayed in a better place. The house is gorgeous, clean and has everything you can possibly need for a family vacation. Love the decoration and attention to details. The location is perfect - very close to the beach and all the shops and restaurants. We went in December so we knew we probably would not be able to go to the beach or use the pool b/c it's solar heated and it was raining and below 65 on most days that we were there. However, we thoroughly enjoyed the backyard and the hot tub. Best New Years vacation so far! Would definitely go back!
