Perfect Destin Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our family of 6 to Beach Blessing and couldn't have been more pleased. The house has all the comforts of home. Actually, the bed in the Master Suite is more comfortable than my bed at my home! We enjoyed our short walks to the beach, sitting out on the front porch watching my granddaughter safely ride her skooter in the cul de sac, taking walks in the neighborhood which consisted of other lovely homes and condos, eating at restaurants within walking distance, cooking out on the grill and enjoying a special meal of fresh seafood, shopping at Destin Commons, golfing at several beautiful golf courses, etc. I could go on and on.

A new restaurant to the area worth mentioning is The Surf Hut. Excellent food and service- right on the beach. Great atmosphere! Short drive from the house.

An activity we discovered that was worth every penny was chartering a sailboat with Sail Away. Brandon, the owner, was so accommodating and nice. He has top of the line snorkeling gear and fishing equipment. You tell him what you want to do and he will do just that. We really wanted to see dolphins so he took us to an area he usually sees them and we had dolphins swimming all around us. It was wonderful.

We will return and can't wait to stay at Beach Blessing again!!

Great location! In the middle of Everything!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time to stay at this house, and my husband and friends and I will continue to come here every year! The floor plan is so flexible, and this home is clean, comfortable, updated and has fun decor! We walk to the ocean which is 5 minutes away and so convenient. Our favorite restaurants are within walking distance, and we are in the center of all that is Destin! We do front porch sitting in the evening, and lay in the sun on the private deck during the day. We also can enjoy the beautiful, clean swimming pool which is just across the street. We always have a great Destin experience here, but we also have our privacy as this home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac.

Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5

Home was lovely, excellent floor plan. We traveled with 4 adults 3 small children, plenty of room in the house. All needed kitchen items available. Very easy access to the beach. If you need chairs, cooler, umbrella, I suggest going through rentgearhere.com, he was also very accomodating. Dropped it off on doorstep and so much cheaper than beach service. We will def be staying here again!!

Good value

  • 3 of 5

Lets start by saying that the home was a good value for the price paid. We would probably return if we were to plan a trip again to Destin. It was as described on the VRBO listing with an exception as detailed below.

Having said this, there were some things that we did not appreciate. First, we thought we would be renting from the owner when we went to VRBO (Vacation Rental By OWNER). Turns out you contact an owner rep who puts you in contact with Southern Resorts. We had no opportunity to negotiate on the price since we wanted to stay an extra week.Generally Southen Resorts is a good and efficient organization. Had good eperiences dealing with them EXCEPT for one problem. The "Heated Pool". We called to ask why the pool was not heated as indicated in the VRBO listing. We don't undertand why a message was left at our home in Canada, when we were staying in Destin. We did not get a callback at the rental property. Further, the male individual that left the message claims "he went to the website and nowhere does it state that the pool is heated". NOT TRUE. As I write this review, I went to the VRBO website for Beach Blessings and guess what. It states that "You will have access to the luxurious amenities of this exclusive community including clubhouse, a swimming pool (heated in winter)". Why would he say that we were wrong? Funny how the next day we saw a heating contractor working on the pool mechanics.

Other minor issues were; Shower in master bedroom leaked water onto the bathroom floor (I purchased some silicone caulking and sealed the shower trac, no more leak), toilet plugged on 6 occasions, Couch very uncomfortable (Should invest in new living room furniture). PVR in the living room does not allow you to record. Turns out you have to pay the cable company to be able to record programs. Why would you buy a PVR when you did not subscribe to the feature?

Asside from the above, we were pleased with the home. We would recommend it only on the condition that more comfortable furniture be provided in the living room.
