This home was just perfect, our family enjoyed our stay and had the best time. The location was convinent and the view was gorgeous. The owner was so easy to contact and was a pleasure doing business with. Staying at the Lily Pad was absolutely perfect. The deck was very big and the constant breeze made it so enjoyable to sit and just enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Thanks again Lily Pad for a great vacation and looking for a return trip next year.

My family had an incredible time at The Lilypad. It was even better than the pictures provided. Our group included myself, my husband, our 2 daughters (age 14 and 17) who each brought a friend, and my 70 yr old parents. The 4 bedrooms are spacious and having 4 full baths was a must for us. The kitchen is fully equiped and plenty of room to congregate and cook. The pool area is absolutely perfect! Plenty of lounge chairs for everyone and large deck area to enjoy every moment of sunlight while also enough shaded area around the pool for my parents to stay cool while watching us goofing around in the pool. Seating for 12 on the deck to dine and enjoy grilling. The view is absolutely gorgeous. The garage has a ping pong table and is filled with everything you could need at the pool and beach. Lots of floats, knee boards, sand toys, and more. They provided plenty of beach chairs and the perfect beach cart to hull them down to the beach. They also have a large cooler on wheels and a 2 seater wagon to get all you need down to the beach. The beach is an easy 5 minute walk across the bridge over the lake and then one block within the gated neighborhood to the private access boardwalk. Getting to the beach was a breeze for me, my husband and the girls but my parents both have knee and back issues so the walk was a little long for them. They could do it but we drove them to the beach access to make it easier for them. We felt very much at home and all of the extras provided made it easier to sit back and relax. We are definitely planning to stay here again soon!

Our Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this wonderful house. It offered our family everything we needed for a terrific week together. We appreciated the reviews because they offered helpful hints to get us started so please read them all. The owner is more than helpful. If you have questions or need help she is a call away. We visited several of the restaurants listed in her final letter and found them as recommended. My sons and husband played golf at Kelly Plantation and were very pleased. My daughter in law scheduled parasailing for us as well as a morning Cattywampus snorkeling and catamaran adventure looking for dolphins and sea turtles. The kids loved the beach and the private pool. We rented two umbrellas and four chairs at the beach for the week. They were set up and waiting for us every morning. There were at least two beach chairs in the garage so we had more than enough seating at the beach for 6 adults and the 3 kids at any one time. The patio and the view is gorgeous. I suggest if you come into Destin before the 4:00 check in that you prepare to spend time at Henderson Beach State Park. We flew into Panama City and after a 50 minute drive into Destin we all played in the ocean . This was the perfect way to spend a few hours waiting for Lily Pad. There are restrooms in the pavilions which also has tables. There is everything you need along HWY 98. That was the perfect way to spend our first hours in Destin. As I said each review will give you more info for your stay. By the way the snow cones at the original Dewey's are unbelievable! The ones with the ice cream inside--yummy!!

Happy

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to explain the view this home offers! This was our first big family vacation and we had searched for the perfect place for over a month. When we arrived at the Lily Pad it was like a dream come true! You are right across the street from the grocery store for the convenience. The home itself was very spacious for 11 of us. The exterior entertaining area and pool was fabulous. We spent many mornings and evenings enjoying our patio and scenery. The private beach was great as well. I look forward to another stay in the future and don't plan on searching for a month as we found everything we wanted/needed in the Lily Pad by The Sea.

Pamper Yourself at This Wonderful Seaside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lily Pad by the Sea was the perfect vacation spot for our family. We were seeking a peaceful and beautiful location to relax and recharge our batteries, and Lily Pad was just what we needed. It was our own little oasis, ideal for hanging out with the family. The kids spent lots of time in the large private pool, and I enjoyed swimming with them and lounging poolside, reading and enjoying the beautiful scenery. Pool water usually doesn’t agree with my younger daughter’s skin, but she was remarkably able to swim multiple times a day without any problem. We also spent a lot of time at the beach, which was not crowded. There are many good restaurants nearby, but we generally chose to grill out by the pool and spend as much time as possible pampering ourselves at this wonderful seaside retreat. My husband spent some time in the water, but he was also content to sit on a comfy couch with a cold drink, making good use of the big TV and other electronics that were conveniently located in the living room and each of the four bedrooms.

Lily Pad is centrally located in Destin and is close to numerous attractions, including The Track and Big Kahuna. It is within easy walking distance of restaurants and is across the highway from a Winn-Dixie and Target. In my opinion, however, the best part about Lily Pad is that you can park your car in the garage and have a fabulous, luxurious vacation without even leaving the property. This house is a great fit for anyone who wants to soak up the beauty of Destin without dealing with the crowds and traffic during busy season. We felt like royalty waking up in our lovely bedrooms and walking out on the balconies overlooking the lake and pool. Listening to the song birds and watching the turtles in the lake, we didn’t feel motivated to do much running around. For once, we ended a vacation feeling rested instead of burnt out.

For our busy family, Lily Pad was just what the doctor ordered. As an added bonus, Candy, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with. She is warm, friendly and helpful and will respond promptly to any questions you might have.

Awesome family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to destin many times and this was our favorite place thus far! We have 5 children and they all wanted different things out of our vacation and this house met every need! The beautiful private pool made the youngest happy. The beach close by made the girls happy. The delicious Mellow Mushroom pizza place was a 2 minute walk and made everyone happy! I loved all the beach toys and wagon that were in the garage for our use! Beautiful home and location. Thank you!
