Great house, perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lily pad in July and had an excellent time. We had a large group, several family's and lots of children. The house was large enough to accommodate everyone, and the private pool and hot tub could not have been better. There is a pool table and Foose ball table upstairs which made for fun evenings and the house was furnished nicely. Kirby was very easy to work with and very professional, and made me feel that if i needed anything i could count on him to take care of it. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay here again next time i have a large group and vacationing is Destin. Everything was perfect.

Great beach house for the family

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 4 grown kids with their significant others stayed at Lily pad for a week. We also had some additional family members stop in during our visit. It was really a great set up. Our kids are 18 - 25. The game room was perfect for them. The pool and hot tub was very nice. Overall the house and guest house had plenty of space for everyone. It was a very short 2 block walk to the beach. I was a bit concerned and thought I might need to rent a golf cart, which is common around there. But we walked to the beach everyday.

Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

For spring break we rented Lily Pad with two other families and we could not have asked for a better place. There was plenty of room for 10 kids and 6 adults to spread out or hang out together. The deck next to the pool was great for watching the kids and eating meals. The guest house was very well furnished but the living space (living room and kitchn) really wasn't needed because the main house had so much room. The pool and hot tub were perfect and other amenities like the game room and netflix really made the stay that much more relaxing and enjoyable. The walk to the beach was a little far for kids under 6 but there is an awesome public beach access about a 2 minute drive and there is a playground and bath house.

Lastly, i would say working with Kirby was great. I have rented from vrbo before and Kirby was top notch in communicating through the rental process and he stopped by to make sure everything was goin well. He offered suggestions on things to do and you could tell he really would make himself available to help if needed.

I would recommend this property in a heartbeat and if i planned on going to Destin again, Lily Pad would be the place on the top of my list of places to stay.

Thanks Kirby!

Great week with kids and Grandkids - January 2014

  • 5 of 5

The Lily Pad was superb for our family reunion!! The kids and grandkids loved having room to spread out and the heated pool and jacuzzi were a BIG bonus. All appliances were top notch, and it was great having a high efficiency washer and dryer at our disposal. We recommend the Lily Pad to anyone with a family. The separate building was a plus for the ones needing to put little ones to bed early. Lily Pad is close to beach and shopping and everyone was pleased to walk on beach, lounge in pool or jacuzzi, or simply kick back in one of the many sitting areas. Thanks Kirby and Laura for an OUTSTANDING week with our kids and grandkids! We'll be back!!!!

The Lily Pad is the only place to stay if you have a family!! It has EVERYTHING!! The grandkids loved having the pool and the adults loved being able to just kick back and let the kids play their heart out in the pool. The adults loved having the pool table available for a little cool fun during the heat of the day. But we were so amazed at all the appliances available! I had took my food processor and crock pot because I knew I would need them, but they already had them and ALOT more too! Ms. Laura even came by and checked on us to see if there was anything that we needed. There was just too much to do and not enough time. I HIGHLY recommend the Lily Pad to anyone who is going to Destin with their family. Thanks Kirby and Laura for an OUTSTANDING vacation with our kids and grandkids!
