Exactly What We Expected!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we expected from the photos and info given. Sherry, the owner was so helpful with pre-booking questions, both her and Kathy followed up throughout the entire process, even while we were there, to make sure everything was perfect.

The Pool was clean, warmed quickly, and just perfect. Our 4 year old swam everyday in addition to the easy ocean access. The beach was pristine, everyone takes wonderful care of the beach, Sunday was so calm and the water was so clear I could see the bottom as far as I could walk out. We saw stingrays, jellys, and tons of fish in the water. The sand was white, the water emerald green, was postcard picture perfect.

The community was so friendly and we felt very safe during our stay. Was nice not having to worry about walking around, great people!

The house has everything you need, cox cable with movie channels, wifi, fully stocked kitchen with everything you could need to cook with, plenty of toys for the pool and beach, dvds, throw blankets, etc. I can't imagine asking for anything else.

We would recommend the house to anyone and would definitely return. Thanks so much for making our stay a memorable one!

The home was everything we hoped it would be and more. We have come to Destin 19 years and stayed in lots of places and we rank this at the top. Beds were very comfortable. Everything you needed in kitchen. Close to beach. Lots of beach toys and chairs and umbrellas. Last but not least, the pool was AWESOME!!! Very clean home. Great gated neighborhood. Will come again

Had such an amazing time! My family was extremely satisfied with the home and how easy it was for my Grandmother get around. It was my first trip to Destin, and we will definitely be back! If you're looking for something to do, I highly suggest going on the Dolphin Tour with AJ's Seaquest! Nick was great and it was an amazing time! Also enjoyed parasailing with Boogie's! As far as food, you can't go wrong with Jordano's pizza!!! Can't wait to come back!!!

Very nice home, great owners.

  • 4 of 5

Home is beautiful, beaches we close, owners very helpful and responsive. Only thing keeping this from being a 5 star for us was the pool. No heater, not even a solar cover. Temps in April made the pool bitter cold and virtually unusable for the week. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay.

Excellent Stay Once Again!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a large family or groups traveling together. The home is a 5 min walk to the beach and the pool in the backyard is a huge bonus. This is our second year in a row staying at the house and we were just as happy as last year. We traveled with four adults and 5 children and the house is so spacious with a great outdoor area around the pool. Kathy and Mike have the house stocked with everything you need including some great chairs, umbrellas, and toys for the beach. The beach wagon was a savior to get everything down to the beach in one trip. We love the location, spaciousness of the home, and the pool is fantastic for afternoons with the kids so you can stay cool and not have to make a 2nd trip to the beach. Last but not least, Kathy and Mike are very attentive and accommodative an they answer any questions in the matter of minutes as you get ready for your stay. Highly recommend the property as you are close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores. Plan on going going back next year.

All the best,

Pat Swan

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home has all the amenities as your own home. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, the BBQ grill was a plus. There were 8 adults in our group and had plenty of room to spare. We really enjoyed the private pool, spent more time in it than the beach. Would definitely rent again. The owner and manager were both very nice to deal with!
