My wife and I have been vacationing in NW Florida for 25 years. For years we vacationed in Pensacola Beach, but several years ago we discovered Destin! We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have. George & Chris, Richland, MI
The Owner purchased this house in 2003
While vacationing in Pensacola Beach, people mentioned how much there was to do in Destin. In fact our first visit many years ago was to the Big Kahunas water park (coincidentally 1/4 mi from the Loveshack). Destin has a beautiful harbor, the whitest beaches, golf, shopping and great dining. There is so much to see and do that we were hooked and decided to buy a property. We found our home, 'the Loveshack', in the Dunes of Destin gated community.
The home has a private pool with a large deck the borders the lake and fountains. The neighborhood has a community pool as well. To top it all off the beach is 150 ft away with a private service to arrange beach furniture. The views of the Gulf and Lake are stunning and the private beach means lots of space for the kids to play. The home itself has 5 bedrooms and a large living space with a wall of windows that faces the lake, providing peaceful views and privacy. A balcony of the front Master Bedroom provides restricted Gulf views.
The house was not clean. Dishes had previously been put away dirty. Sofa was covered in gritty sand. When we pulled out the trundle beds for our grandchildren to sleep on, the sheets were so dirty, they made us gag! Dust was everywhere--I finally called maintenance to change the air filters, and they were thick with dust. Yard was unkempt and full of weeds. The bathrooms and bedrooms were clean, but the bed linens were old and worn out. Compass Resorts had the audacity to accuse us of tearing the linens even though they were already torn when we arrived--probably from being rotten. Renter Beware--this house needs major cleaning and updating for the rental price they charge!
I met girlfriends in Destin for a long weekend and this was a beautiful destination. The house offered plenty of space and bathrooms for everyone to spread out. The gathering areas (living room, kitchen and decks) were large enough to accommodate all of us comfortably. The beach is just a short walk and if you tire of the beach it is great to come back and relax at the pool area. It is conveniently located to shop and restaurants and the grocery store and fish market are within walking distance. The amenities are wonderful and the house is well equipped. I would highly recommend this house for all travelers.
A group of high school friends and I stayed at the Casa di Amore for a long weekend getaway. We had a wonderful time visiting and catching up. The house was perfect because there was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space, yet were still able to make meals together and swim in the pool. The beach is just a couple blocks away so it was wonderful to be able to walk over anytime we wanted. I would definately recommend the house for a girls trip or family gathering.
We stayed at Casa Di Amore for a Girl's Weekend. There were 6 of us, so we had plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed cooking in the well-equiped kitchen, having breakfast on the balcony and relaxing in the hot-tub and pool. The beautiful beach is a short walk from the house. There are several restaurants an grocery stores within walking distance of the house. I highly recommend Casa Di Amore!
We just stayed at this home for our family vacation. It was a fabulous week as we had family from out of state meet us there. We had 4 generations ranging from 1 year old to 88 year old. This home was perfect because all of the bedrooms have private baths, the pool and whirlpool on the patio and our family loved fishing in the lake on the back deck! We also do a lot of cooking and the gas stove was a plus to us. Of course, the beach if the best in the world! RCI
