Guestbook comments from the manager

This was submitted by our wonderful "Snowbird" guests and they have already reserved the house for next year!

"This is truly a home away from home!

After a lengthy drive it was so nice to walk into a clean spacious abode that makes you glad you left all the work and worries behind. This is not the sterile environment you can sometimes get with a rental unit. This one smacks of cozy comfort.

No parking lot to negotiate through, no stairs to climb and no elevators to wait for just a short hop from the car to kitchen where there is lots of storage for groceries and snacks.

The spectacular beaches of the Gulf coast are only a five minute walk away yet you are still removed from the noise and congestion that typify beach front rentals.

Great shopping at the outlet mall is just a short drive away or a fifteen minute bike ride and makes for a fun outing."

Our Destin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the home it had everything we needed for our stay. Being from Texas we BBQ cook out a couple of times out the back patio, it was very relaxing. The best part of this house it had seven bicycles two were flat but the others were working so every morning we took off on our bike rides before we went out the beach. The beach and the pool were so close to the house. Our favorite restaurant was just across from the house which made it even better. I would really recommend this house to our family and friends.

Birthday Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to someone else's misfortunate who had to cancel, it worked out well for me and my family who were able to enjoy a beautiful stay at an awesome location! The home was very comfortable for the 5 of us. All of the things that were available for use at our disposal, ie., bikes, beach chairs, grill, etc. The toaster broke and the property manager was there the very next morning! Talk about customer service!!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I vacationed at this amazing home and had a wonderful time. The home is very clean, organized, and beautifully decorated; we felt right at home. There is a beautiful backyard and grills for barbecue. It was great having television in each room for evening relaxing time. The neighborhood is beautiful and family friendly. The pool is very close to the home as well as the beach. We were surprised and thankful to be able to borrow the home's bicycles for fun bike rides in the morning breeze. I will definitely refer the vacation rental to my friends and family. I am also hoping to come back many times in the future.

Thank you for the great hospitality!

Escaping Minnesota

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Dottie's Dune. The house was everything we had hoped and fit the description very well. It was very well equipped with just about every thing that we needed. It worked very well with our two different sets of guests, each staying a week. The beach of course is wonderful and the community pool was a treat that we used almost everyday. It was just a wonderful place to escape the winter in Minnesota. The restaurants were great and we even tried the deep sea fishing! The owner was very gracious and helpful. We highly recommend the house and the area.

Perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Dottie's Dune was wonderful! The house was very very clean and spacious, very well kept. We had six adults with us and it really didn't seem cramped at all. Everything you see in the pictures is exactly what the house is. The master shower is somewhat small but not a problem. The beach is only about a two or three minute walk. You can park at the beach but you better get there before 9:00 a.m. if that's your plan. A nice pool is located in the center of this very quiet neighborhood. It might take about 45 seconds to get to the pool. The house was a great location in regards to other attractions. There was so much to do close by. Pompano Joe's was right on the beach with live music every night. There was a place on the beach that rented waverunners. Just a short drive to board dolphin tours. Fudpucker's, which had great food was a lot of fun and also close. Also, try Gilligan's, it's a little whole in the wall place but the food is really good. There is a lot of entertainment really close by. An outlet mall was about a five minutes drive. Panama City is only about an hour away. It was hard to fit in everything we wanted to do in just one week. We will stay here again when we come back to Destin. A great house! Our best trip ever!

Kids First Time at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our kids are 5 and 8 and this was the first time they had been to the ocean. The location of the house was awesome! We walked to the beach everyday and it was no problem. Halfway to the beach was the pool and my kids also enjoyed that. There were sand and pool toys at the house to use which was great that we didn't have to pack those since we were driving from Missouri. The neighborhood is very family friendly and we could ride bikes and walk down the street without worrying about traffic. I am a big clean freak, and the house was spotless! We grilled several nights and it was so convenient because the kitchen was fully furnished with pots and pans, we just brought the food! I would come back here every year, Linda was great to work with and the house and location made our vacation a relaxing family time at the beach!!
