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.

Beautiful well-kept home with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Mary was great to work with. The house is beautiful and in excellent condition. Our kids loved playing in the pool (while we used the hot tub). These extras were essential since the entire week was basically a washout. One thing we really appreciated were digital keypad door locks. One less thing to worry about when traveling. Thank you again Mary, we enjoyed our stay.

Perfect, well-equipped house for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our family's Thanksgiving get-away. We have 3 teenage boys and 3 small dogs. The house has tile throughout (except in the bedrooms) so it was very easy for us to keep clean. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed. The owners/managers even provided us with a 'starter kit' of paper goods which was enough to last us for the whole week. Although we had one small issue with the lock on the front door, everything worked great. The owner was quick to respond and work out a solution for the lock, which we appreciated. This house is in a gated community only about 2 blocks from the beach. Our boys rode the bikes provided all week and we had a great time. The only thing is that with three teenagers and three dogs, the living room was slightly cramped (even though it provided plenty of seating). This is because our boys like to spread out and hog couches for themselves. This house had, by far, the most comfortable furniture of anything we have rented in the Destin area. The master bathroom was AMAZING! We absolutely loved the shower. The pictures on the website do not do it proper justice. It is a huge, nicely tiled shower with a bench seat. Not only is the owner on top of things, but so is the HOA. The main neighborhood gate was broken on Thanksgiving day and the HOA had it fixed before noon on Black Friday. While the neighborhood itself is not one of the typical upscale Destin beach neighborhoods, it is nice and appears to be mostly owner occupied and the house most definitely is equipped in an upscale fashion. It is hard to find a place that will allow you to bring three dogs and this place couldn't have been better. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a noted to future guest, I like to know our vacation home is as comfortable and relaxing when people stay with us. I have expensive touch screen door locks and unfortunately failed when the tenants arrived, I worked with tech support and got it working good as new. We always have back up keys just in case. We welcome you back next year!! Have a safe Holiday!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Ravens Nest, it had everything we needed. There was 10 of us in my family and as each family arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was pool was a nice treat after a long day at the beach and we found everthing to be very very clean. The master bedroom shower was the best shower I ever had the pressure was great I would really recommend this place to anybody. The sofa bed was a little uncomfortable but other than that it was perfect.
