About David and Haylee Huffman

David and Haylee live here in Destin, Fl with our newest addition, Asher, just minutes from our beautiful beach home! David is originally from the northwest, WA state to be exact, and Haylee is one of the few in our area to call Destin her 'hometown.' We can't wait to get to know you better!

David and Haylee Huffman purchased this house in 2012

Why David and Haylee Huffman chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We love the Destin area and want others to enjoy the beauty of the emerald coast, too! We fell in love with our home the first time we laid eyes on it and hope you will, too!

Great Vacation at Tuscan Sun

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven loved Tuscan Sun for our July 2016 vacation. It is a short walk to the beach and the golf cart was also great to ride to and from the beach. We absolutely loved having the private pool! The area is beautiful and very quiet at night. We were close to restaurants, the outlet mall and other activities. We hope to return next year if possible. Thank you David and Haylee for sharing Tuscan Sun and for your assistance in making our vacation possible.

Nice in pictures

  • 2 of 5

Loved having the golf cart and private pool.

Needs more bathroom and kitchen towels, no curtains in bedrooms to block light out, golf cart starts beeping even when fully charged, front and back doors need lots of maintenance, tv channels in upstairs rooms were out, and ants were all over kitchen counters.

Inviting and Accomodating

  • 5 of 5

Overall, our stay was very enjoyable. We were able to utilize the kitchen to prepare lunches and a few dinners - - - as well as being sure to enjoy some of the local cuisine. Home is in good condition and had everything we needed upon arrival. The owners were very easy to work with and we will keep Tuscan Sun in mind for our next trip to Destin.

Pictures do not match the house.

  • 2 of 5

Upon arrival to Tuscan Sun the first thing we noticed was that the blind on front door looked as if it was chewed by a dog. Kitchen lacked glasses and silverware and dirty grout on the tile counter tops. The couch sunk so far down that you couldn't get up. The lamps had burned out bulbs as well as the kitchen light. The sheets & towels are old and have bleach marks. Wonderful to have a private pool but it only had 4 chairs and one lounge was broken. No towel rack in master bath. Unsafe to go out to the pool using the left side stairs. House is clean and looks newly painted. Golf cart was great. First time in Destin and hope to return next year. Beautiful beaches and wonderful restaurants.

Fun in the Sun

  • 4 of 5

Tuscan Sun....we felt right at home.

Plenty of room, great pool, and easy access to the white sandy beach. The home was very nice, clean and had all the things we needed for a great week in the sun.

Thanks Tuscan Sun!
