Why Steve Neese chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We purchased Bon Bini to enjoy special memories with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

Our guests love the 1800 SF of outside decking that wraps around all 3 floors. There are views of the ocean from two sides of the house. The elevator makes it easy to bring luggage upstairs and the golf cart makes it fun to drive around the community. There are two Weber natural gas grills on the 2nd floor deck, conveniently close to the kitchen and living areas. Our guests have told us that the beach toys in the garage for the kids and the baby equipment is a big plus. We keep a well stocked kitchen to please the most demanding cooks.

  • 5 of 5

Bon Bini is absolutely gorgeous. It is very roomy too! I loved the balconies. It was so nice to sit out there and listen to the waves at night. The location coudln't be better. The home has everything you could need, an open floor plan, a beautiful kitchen, plenty of bed rroms and enough bathrooms so everyone can get ready for a day or a night out!

Thanks to Bon Bini for a lifetime of fond memories

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Bon Bini very much There are 15 of us and there was plenty of room. The appliances do need an update They are pretty cheap. The oven only has one top coil, no bottom, and it takes forever to heat up . The dishwasher doesn't clean good at all. We even ran a load twice and it was no better. Loved the ice maker machine. It was great

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. All of the kitchen appliances have been purchased within the last 5 years. The oven was purchased 2 years ago. The new ovens hide the heating element on the bottom to make it easier to clean. I've asked our manager to double check both the dishwasher and oven to make sure they are operating well. Please come back soon.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with 3 small children (ages 2-5) and 7 adults May 6 - May 13th and had an AWESOME time! The house has tons of amenities. The wifi was down, but the the owner was wonderful to allow us to buy a new router in hopes to fix it and offered to reimburse us. This was not my main concern since we were on vacation, but the guys wanted to fix it. Lots of kids beach toys, chairs, etc as well as high chairs and pack -and-plays. AWESOME bedroom suites with king size beds in most of the rooms. It would be nice to have a few more hooks to hang suits and towels in the rooms, but that's a minor thing. We loved staying here and would definitely recommend it!
