Two Thumbs Up!!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in the group raved about this beach house. The furniture and bedding were all new or seemed like it- something we have seldom found in larger home rentals, but for our group of pickier females, it was noticed and appreciated. There were 4 children under the age of 4 and the house was perfect for us- two pack and plays, a highchair, Maclaren strollers, baby gates, pool toys, and a sleeper in the master bedroom that we did not realize was there. The pool was a good size, while we enjoyed the pool area as we were grilling out and having a family ping pong tournaments. The location was great- we were about a block from a church with a large playground that had play areas for our little ones and another area for the older ones. The beach access was walk on level and directly across the street. This was a life saver for us as going up and down stairs with beach gear and babies is not easy. There was a great coffee shop and restaurant a block away. Destin area had great shopping for the girls and golf for the guys. We didn't end up going deep sea fishing but hope to do that next time. I would recommend this house and Destin to any one traveling with children.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful, everyone had their own place to get away for a little relax time and the amenities at the house filled everyday with enjoyment! We could not have been happier with our experience at Bahama Breeze and hope to stay there again some day!

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful and the owner, Jeff, was great to work with. He replied to emails practically immediately and was very helpful throughout the planning process and with any questions we had while we were there. We had a group of 20 people stay in the house. It was the perfect amount of space for a large group. We loved the backyard especially (the heated pool, ping pong table, and pool table were hits!). The house is a super quick walk to the beach and very close to everything we wanted to do in Destin (putt putt, bowling, shopping, great restaurants, etc.). I would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend this house and owner!

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and well stocked with dishes. The outside pool area was a little disappointing as far a being free of leaves and debris. Called the owner twice during the week and he was very helpful. We slept 19 comfortably. Overall we had a very good week. Spent a lot of time outdoors by the pool area and used grill almost everyday. I felt this was good property and would definitely use again. JoAnn

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had a great time and would love to have you stay at our home again! I am sorry about the debris around the pool area. I wish you had mentioned it when we spoke during your stay, as I could have had someone come out within a couple of hours with a blower to clean it very quickly. We normally have someone come at least once a week to use a blower and clean the area. It did storm a couple of times before and during your stay, so I apologize that they did not come out again after that to clean it. Thanks again for staying at our home and we look forward to having you again in the future!

Thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

This is a large well appointed home. There is plenty of seating in the family room and the kitchen is well equipped. The extra refrigerator in the laundry room is a big plus for soft drinks and trays that would crowd the kitchen refrigerator. The beds are very comfortable and in suite bathrooms were appreciated. The carriage house worked very well for our grandchildren (who get up at 6am) and their parents. Jeff offers a good overview of the area and was a joy to work with. Our entire family gave this vacation a thumbs up!
