-Great for large groups

-Gulf Front


-Broken chairs, pool covers, cigarette butts and other random garbage lines the walk way from the owners suite to the beach.

-Ceiling of the shower on the owners suite side is about to fall thru on someone's head.

-Glass top of the stove in owners side is cracked.

-A/C unit was not working, until they finally came to fix it.

-"Pool" is actually just an oversized hot tub.

-Owners suite was full of bugs that according to the "booking agent" was not a big deal. We had a baby with us so yes I guess it was a BIG DEAL!

-Cabinet doors where falling off.

-Looked like the place had not been cleaned since these VRBO pictures were last updated.

-Walls and doors had holes where it looked like people had punched the wall.

-Broken glass is all over the parking area.

-Sliding glass door on owners suite was cracked.

-couches were full of stains

After notifing the "booking agent" multiple times and telling him we cannot use the owners suite side due to the bug infestation and no A/C because the fact we have a BABY with us. He offered us some money back but stated we would have to sign a contract that we would not write any reviews. Upon our decline of signing a contract without a lawyers review he threatened to kick us out, real professional. You can keep your money Bob, we care more about the way you are treating people.

Great Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Emerald Coast Destinations was GREAT! They stayed in contact with us during our pre-check in. The house was perfect! We had a family reunion in PCB for the week and it worker perfect for our family of 18. The house was extremely clean, comfortable and right on the beach. If felt like home away from home. The next time we are in PCB, we will definitely try to secure this wonderful home again for our stay. Thank you again Emerald Coast Destinations for helping make our vacation a blast!

Amazing Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in September and couldn't have been happier! I had read some reviews on other sites about this property and was apprehensive to say the least. After our week here, all of the apprehensions were put to rest! We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were very impressed by the cleanliness of the home. Everything was immaculate . The pictures on VRBO do not do the property justice! We had 9 adults and 6 kiddos 2 years and under, and everyone had their own space. The kiddos had a great time running around the house-it is HUGE!!! The spa upstairs was a great get-a-way for the adults, and the kids had fun in the pool downstairs. The beach is literally in your backyard, and unless there are renters in the properties around you, you don't have to share the beach with anyone else. There are two washers and dryers-very convenient, and the house provided more than enough bath towels. We are a family who loves to cook, and I wasn't sure how well the kitchen would be stocked with pots, pans, etc... There is plenty of cooking supplies-even a crock pot! The owners unit was very convenient, as it's acted as our "overflow" space. It has a full kitchen-refrigerator, oven microwave, etc... if you are running out of room in the main house kitchen. It has it's own private entrance (I think our parents liked being able to seclude themselves completely from the grandkids from time to time :) ) When we weren't cooking, we ate at Schooners (it was their annual lobster-fest) Sharkey's, and Mellow Mushroom pizza. We really liked the atmosphere at Schooners and Sharkey's. Mellow Mushroom has GREAT pizza! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants more of an upscale vacation. This is definitely not a house that has been "used and abused" by rowdy vacationers. My only request is that you do not try to book it during the second week of September because that is when our party UNANIMOUSLY agreed to have our 2nd annual family vacation here! We LOVED our time spent here, and hope you do too!

As Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house last week and it was absolutely amazing! It was clean and well kept. I had no issues with the pool, hot tub, or internet. It was fully stocked with plenty of sheets, towels, and blankets. I even met with Bob when I first arrived and he showed me around and made sure the house met my expectations. He is a very nice guy. The furniture is very high quality and I was able to use most of it for my wedding. I will definitely come back and rent it again.

Very, very nice home away from home while we were in town playing softball. Very roomy and spread out. Kids loved the spa on the second level. I loved the back patio and the short walk to the beach. Although there were a few minor problems, we dealt with it. The egg grill outside was broken, but the HUGE grill worked wonderfully. There wasnt a big pot for louisiana people to make crawfish ett... But we bought one! A few bathrooms wouldn't produce hot water, but heck there's 6 bathrooms! LOVED the TWO washing machines And TWO dryers! The outside trash dumpster is a plus - it is dumped everyday. The house is located in the part of town that you can bypass traffic to get to the ballpark- which we loved... If you are close to here, you MUST eat at C-level bar and grill. Fresh seafood! No wait! It's a local place. Thomas drive about 5 miles past this house. We are very spoiled now --- no more condos, no more elevators, no more long walks to the beach... Would recommend this house 100%!

Big house

  • 5 of 5

My family and my 2 brothers and sisters family rented this beach house for our getaway vacation and it was wonderful. We are big family and this lovely house had enough roof for everyone. Two level, big kitchen, another separate kitchen in back of the house. The house is like a labirint, kids had lots of fun. Comfortable beds and couch. Hot tub was amazing. From the back yard you walk to the beach. Amazing stay, we sure be back and rent this house for our next vacation. Highly recommend this house fo big families, you will not regret!!!
