Why Rebecca Callaway chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We visited Destin last September and fell in love with the area! So, we decided to buy our vacation home here! You will love the beaches, and shopping and restaurants!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Theo Stanford

Atlanta, GA


The first thing we noticed upon entering the Chilley Gilley is the immaculate decor! The decor was rivaled only by the comfort of the entire home. I have traveled the world by plane (Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, etc.) and though we actually drove from Atlanta to Destin, this was possibly the best vacation ever and that's because of the comfort of the home. Our trip was in celebration of our mom's 85th birthday, and the home and the beautiful beaches and area of Destin made it a momentous and memorable occasion! We are already making plans to return to Destin and will certainly check to see if our home away from home (Chilley Gilley) is available!

Perfect Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Chilley Gilley for a long weekend trip. The house was beautiful and we had a great time here. The beds we comfortable and the house was very clean. There were board games, video games and pool accessories all in the house already. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We had another family staying with our family and it was perfect for 2 families with the 2 master bedrooms. The house fit 4 adults and 4 kids very comfortably. We would definitely come back and stay here again. The pool was nice, but it was a little too cold for us to swim in. The beach is only 1/2 mile away from the house. The house is in a great location to everything you could want. We would recommend this home and we look forward to coming back another time.

Very Nice Home in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Chilley Gilley is beautiful and in a great location. We really enjoyed the pool area, the easy walk to the beach, and the short distance to many restaurants. The home is immaculate and I would recommend it for a stay in Destin. We only stayed for a long weekend but wish we could have stayed longer.

Loved this place!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the Chilley Gilley. This was our first time in Destin and we found the location to be very centrally located and the walk to the beach was about 10 minutes. The trolley service to the beach was also a nice perk. The pool was also a wonderful bonus and was only a short stroll from the house. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed for our long weekend. We would definitely recommend the Chilley Gilley to our friends and family!!

Awesome time!!

  • 5 of 5

I REEEEALLLY loved Chilley Gilley. The condo has all of the latest amenities, very nice decorations and the location is perfect for getting to the beach. You can either walk or there is a trolley that comes to your front door to pick you up. The property also has a very nice pool area to relax at as well. The location is also perfect for shopping. Destin Commons is right across the street and the Outlet Mall is less than a 10 minute drive up the road. We will definitely be staying in Chilley Gilley the next time we visit Destin.
