Snowbird Delight

  • 5 of 5

Precious Palms was a perfect match for us! It is in a lovely gated community with easy walking access to the clubhouse, tennis courts, and work-out facility. The house has been recently remodeled and the open concept with the huge kitchen island is perfect. It has only 3 bar stools and 4 would be a better number. We loved the one story house making everything close at hand. The one car garage was perfect for organizing our golf gear, fishing gear, and beach gear without dragging sand inside. The short walk to the beach was delightful which I did most every day. The wide sandy beach is breath-taking. The house had beach chairs and wagons that could be used for beach goers. We had absolutely no need for a golf cart. And did I mention fabulous restaurants nearby? The rental agent is there immediately if you have a question or an issue! We plan to return!!

Perfect family beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time enjoying this home and with 3 small children, it was the perfect size and had everything we needed for a great vacation! Good proximity to the beach and a great community pool. We did rent a golf cart, which I recommend doing because you can use them on the "back roads" and we were able to drive to restaurants and beach shops, which was fun. Cheryl was very quick in her responses, which I appreciated. We had an issue with the AC one morning and it was taken care of literally within a few hours. Also, the house had beach chairs, sand toys, wagons, and a cooler on wheels to take to the beach. Great house and great family fun at the beach!

Beautiful kitchen, poor bedding

  • 3 of 5

We rented this home July 2014. It had been remodeled with a beautiful new kitchen. The living room/dining area was nice. 2 bedrooms share a bath and were good. There were some issues that could easily be improved upon. For one was the master mattress. It was horrible. We ended up flipping it over ourselves for a slight improvement but it just needs to be replaced. Felt like it was over 20 years old or had been used as trampoline! The master bedding needs to be replaced also. The master bath was odd in layout and it was a tight space to get into closet. There was no tub just a big shower and the vanity drawers were hard to open. It seemed they hadn't finished installing the handles because you would pinch your fingers to open them. A crew came by to measure the shower so we assume a door was going to be installed, which it needed as the floor stayed wet. There were warning signs all over that you were NOT to remove your makeup with their wash clothes and if you stained any linens, you would be charged. This was an odd demand in my opinion. The home does not come with a golf cart so beware that the price you pay to rent will be more and take up your time to arrange. (Most other homes in Destiny include golf carts with the rental) so be aware of that added expense. Overall a good, small home but the master bedding and mattress would be deal breaker unless they upgraded. It is far from beach so providing a golf cart would definitely improve the rental value.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. We appreciate hearing from our guests. Concerning the mattresses, we have never had a complaint on this before. We spend a lot of time at the house ourselves and find the bedding very comfortable. As for the bed coverings, we have recently replaced all of it in the house. With concern to the shower, we had recently just remodeled the bathrooms and the shower door needed to be measured for installation. We had a temporary shower curtain there in the interim. We did not see the need for a bathtub in the master as most people prefer the much larger, walk in shower. I don't understand the comment about the narrow opening to the closet. The bathroom is plenty wide and there is a standard door opening to the closet, which is in itself a super large closet. We do not offer a golf cart with the rental but golf carts can be rented. Our low rates reflect the lack of the golf cart. You will find the homes listed with a golf carts are considerably higher. Not all of our guests want a golf cart so we lowered the rate so that the ones not wanting the golf cart do not have to pay the higher rate and for those that want a golf cart can rent one, thus evening out the rates. We even have a vendor who offers discounts for Golf Cart rentals to our guests. Thanks again for your comments, and thanks for visiting Destin!

Excellent House close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here for our vacation. The house was absolutely perfect for our family, beautiful and very clean! There were lots of extras that were so nice like beach chairs to take to the beach and lots of sand toys. Beautiful back yard that we enjoyed many nights eating outside on the porch. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it to any family looking for a great get away with a close walk to the beach!!
