This comfortable pet-friendly Bayside bungalow sits on a quiet cul de sac, great for the kids and their bikes/scooters or just to throw the football or Frisbee. Greeting you as you enter the property is the living room with a large flat-screen TV and DSL/wireless internet, which you can enjoy on the comfy sectional sofa. Tile flooring graces the main living area, while carpeting dresses the bedroom floors.

Dining can be for six to eight on the large dining table with additional seating at the kitchen counter. The kitchen area has plenty of cooking space and stainless steel appliances. A little nook off the kitchen features a TV and comfortable chairs, just enough for two to watch a special sports game or a new movie.

The Master bedroom has a King bed with a walk-in closet, big vanity and separate bath with a nice long shower/bath. The guest room has a Queen bed with a closet, and the third bedroom offers two sets of bunks for the kids. The queen and bunk room share a the second bathroom! All bedrooms have TVs, and the bunk bedroom has a DVD player. Off the hallway is a laundry room with a full-size washer & dryer.

The extra-large patio is Heaven-sent; it faces the Bay and is on the golf course -- great for having morning coffee, Happy-Hour cocktails, practicing your putting or just letting the kids run! And, as an added bonus, the patio has an outdoor shower . With the Master bedroom, Living room and Dining room all opening to the huge patio, you have an extended entertaining area for your family and friends.

Just outside the Linkside neighborhood is one of the best Sandestin pools for your family to enjoy. The beach is approximately a three-minute car or tram ride.

On those nights you want to enjoy an evening out, the Village at Baytowne Wharf offers an array of restaurants from fine dining to pizza, Bar-B-Q and more. Weekly concerts on the lawn offer local talent that can't be beat. Or, catch the latest movie at Grand Boulevard at the new ten-screen cinema. Sandestin's 2400 acres has over five miles of paved trails for jogging and bicycling, a nature walk area, three public golf courses and tennis courts for the tennis enthusiast.

Reviewer Comments:

Very nice 3 bedroom home in a quiet community with security. Felt very safe. My family and I stayed here for 4 nights and loved how cozy it was. They even had board games for family time. Washer and dryer to wash all your clothes after long say at the beach. Very clean and it has everything you need to cook, I mean EVERYTHING! Just make sure you get to the beach early because it gets pretty full. We would definitely stay here again if we go to Destin again. Thank you for offering us your home.

Reviewer Comments:

The location of the unit was in a good area to the places we wanted to visit. Not my best Destin stay but we made it work. The cons: You pay a cleaning fee and I am not sure why. The home was maybe surface cleaned at best. There was hair (not ours) all over the bathrooms in the dining area and kitchen. We ended up cleaning the unit in order to feel more comfortable staying there. There were these big (water)bugs in the unit...I think we got all that were lurking around during our stay. The cleanliness was just sub-par at best which is a big issue for us as a family. The carpets could use replacing or at least professional cleaning. The couch had crumbs and stuff all behind the cushions, did not make for great lounging. The Pros: The unit was big enough for all 8 of us. The neighbors around you were all friendly. We were able to check in early (for an additional fee). We spent most of our time in Destin, did not spend a lot of time in the unit so we made it work.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Keith. I apologize for the housekeeping issues you encountered during your stay. It certainly is our goal to not have issues like this. I do wish you would have let someone here at the office know because we could have taken care of those issues for you in a timely manner. Things like this are good to know so we can make sure our team members are doing what they need to be doing to the best of their abilities. In regards to the water bugs, as we experience bad weather here those critters will look for anywhere and everywhere to seek shelter. I can assure you that all our units are treated regularly. However, it's unrealistic to think that all bug will be taken care of. Especially in Florida. I do hope you will give us another chance in the future.

We had a great stay at 428Linkside. Property was big enough for a large family. Would definitely revisit. Only issue was the amount of bugs that were inside the unit.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was perfect. We were just a few minutes away from the baytowne wharf, Henderson state park, and the outlets. Couldn't have picked a better home for our family. The house was really nice and better than expected. We also arrived earlier than expected and platinum rentals allowed us to check in earlier than expected. They were really sweet! I honestly wish I could've stayed for more days because I did not want to leave. I definitely recommend this home to anyone interested in renting a home in destin.

Early summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this property and it's management team! The unit has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and new furnishings - it was lovely! It also included a full size washer/dryer and ironing board which came in very handy! 4 teenage boys fit perfectly in the bunk room (I did not notice any noise other than the talking and laughing while they played Xbox after a long day at the beach - we brought our own Xbox). The master bedroom was huge and opened up to the patio. There is another guest room with a queen bed which was perfect for my daughter. The patio! It is so pretty and you look right out onto the golf course with bay views in the distance. The patio had trees and bushes all around the perimeter so it was very private as well. The living room looks right onto the patio and there is a kitchen table, but we only used that for work when needed. The kitchen is completely updated and has everything you could possibly need to cook! There is a sitting room off the kitchen that I thought looked a little strange in the photos, but honestly - this is where we spent most of our time when we were home. It was perfect! We could watch TV in the mornings, make breakfast and never wake up the kids. The neighborhood where the unit is located - Linkside - is super cute! Very close to the highway which means if you are driving, it's just a couple minute drive to the beach. We did not use the Tram passes as we had our car, but management left them for us to use. They provided us with a key code on the day of our arrival and we were able to get right into the unit. The unit is for sale and I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I could! We will definitely stay here again!!

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed the unit very much. It was exactly as advertised and described. It was clean comfortable in all respects. The unit was on the west side of the Sandestin, away from high traffic and noise areas which made it quite tranquil. Of course the Village of Baytown and the Beach were only a quick bike ride away. We were surprised and disappointed there was no outdoor grill or furniture. On our last day, the roof leaked a little in the kitchen during a bad storm and we reported it.
