Nice stay. What you see is what you get

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and in good condition. We had to duck tape( which we had to buy) back on to the vent because it was venting to the air and leaving lint and hot air into the kitchen. Would recommend this site to anyone. The temp was cool and the Hot tube by the pool was always full of Kids. All the restaurants in the area were good.

The House is Half the Vacation, Right?

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house! Blessed with great weather! Early May is the perfect time to go to Destin. Weather is perfect, no crowds, and the water is beautiful. The gate to the beach is literally right in front of the community entrance. Even though this house is second to the last on the drive, the walk is very easy (our youngest is 8). Being in a gated community this close to Destin in a real plus. Our family of 5 had plenty of space and more in this house. Lots and lots of wonderful restaurants close by, some within walking distance on the beach. Fat Clemenza's have authentic Italian dishes and woodfire pizza. Jordanos was our favorite pizza place. Call early to get takeout, don't count on the closing hour of 10 . Deweys Destin was really good right on the harbor. I had the best grilled chicken sandwich that I've ever had at Cheeseburger in Paradise. My family really liked that place. We went to the two biggest malls in the area, Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlet. If you couldn't find what you wanted there, you didn't need it. If you plan on doing any deep sea fishing or helicopter touring, book in advance before you get there and call to confirm often. Can't wait to return!

The rental unti was just as described. A very short walk to the beach with easy access. The use of the keyless entry into the home and gated community made it very easy and hassle free for checkin & checkout. The beach was amazing with beautiful clear water and the sugar white sand. The staff at Kastle Keepers did an amazing job answering all my questions and was truly a pleasure to work with. Already wanting to plan my next vacation to the area and would definately stay again at the Flip Flop Inn.

Great Place to vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great rental house for our vacation! It was in a great location and was within a short walk to the pool and the gorgeous sandy beaches!! We had 4 adults and 5 kids in out party and it fit us all comfortably. Kathy and Mike where a pleasure to deal and we would love to rent from them again when we come back to the beautiful town of Destin!!
