What a great place! We were here for Thanksgiving, but most of all, to celebrate our Mom, Grammy, Gigi's 85th Birthday! We rented Skipper's Escape (the house across the street) as well to house our family from IL, NC, South FL, and TX. Thanks to Kiley Beach Resorts! The weather was yucky the first 3 days but got better and we had a great day at the beach today (11/30)!
We hope to be back!
The location was great and we liked the layout. We understand that this is a rental property but some of the cookware is in rough shape and it would have been nice to have a first aid kit that was stocked with essentials and flashlights that worked. We were informed that they only check these things once a year, so hopefully you don't need any of these items.
Cockroaches are a major issue with this house. Huge ones were all over the kitchen and in the bathroom downstairs. We felt like we needed to sanitize everything before we used it because of that and there wasn't really anything provided for us to do that. Evidently this is currently a common problem in the area. There was an offer to reclean the areas the roaches were seen but resistance is futile in roach world.
Another issue are the majority of the beds are rock hard which led to a lot of cranky people who were trying to enjoy their vacation. Curtains in the bedroom would also be appreciated since the blinds do little to keep light out of the room. The bedrocks were identified and they might be changed out before the next renters come in.
The internet was spotty at best.
The cable connection in the cabana didn't work. The people who stayed there couldn't watch anything. We've learned that this has been problematic since the boxes were installed.
We all loved Destin and appreciated the rental company coming out to check the issues we contacted them about. I'm sure we have a return trip that we'd like to do in the future but it will probably not be to toes in the sand.
We loved Toes in the Sand. Close to the beach and public beach access. It was awesome having our own pool to relax in. This property worked out great for us as we had 4 couples so each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. House is in a great location and very close to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Also the house is decorated very nicely with bright colors and a beach theme. It was very clean and well maintained. The only complaint that we had was with the wifi being slow and kicking us off, but it may have been due to too many people in our party trying to connect on the network. Otherwise, we had a great time and we hope to come back again sometime in the future.
Our family came together for an amazing week of fun in the sun with plenty of beach and pool action! Toes in the Sand made for a perfect gathering place and close walking distance to everything we needed. The pool house was a bonus as we could separate two families with babies and not disturb each other! Thank you for a perfect stay in your lovely home, it could not have worked out better for our family!
Our overall experience was not as nice as we would have liked for it to have been. The public beach that is not private property controlled by the someone hired by local resort is very small in size, there could have been more depth if ocean allowed for this time of year, but it was the width that limited the amount of space available for public use in July. Very glad we rented a golf chart, because they had our beach umbrella and chairs down the beach about 2 blocks. There was a gated access point that had been boarded up, but someone broke the boards so people could crawl thru. The green grass shown in the house photo is now dead pine needles. Several of the dvd's in the house did not work and the mattresses were terrible in several of the bedrooms. The pool temperature averaged around 94 degree's, so it was a nice warm bath tub....only seen the pool guy first day we arrived. Several of the ceiling fan lights in the bedrooms did not work. Good location, property just needs some care and the whole beach stuff needs worked out.
Toes in the sand is a great property, conveniently located. Also the entire process of renting the property, checking in and all communication was very easy. Everyone was super nice and customer service oriented. We will definitely stay here again.
Everyone who came with us loved the house; my husband and I loved the Cabana, too! The ladies took in shopping and the men played golf before Thanksgiving Day. With small children along for this special time and one small Boston Terrier, the nearby play areas hit the spot, too. Everyone enjoyed the warm swimming pool. Our Thanksgiving dinner was delicious thanks to Publix! This is the first time that the host and hostess had stayed in Destin. It is a beautiful place within walking distance to the beach. We all enjoyed our time there and really would have liked to stay another week!!! Thanks, Janet and Chris Kiley.
