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!

The house was everything we wanted and more. It was very neat and clean. The neighborhood was great and clove to the beach and mall. The gulf cart was fun and very useful. The owners were a pleasure to work with very consistent and timely with their response. I had such a great time, I’m booking this same house again next year.

Great beach house. Loved the location to beach and good restaurants. The golf cart was a very fun addition for the house. Loved the neighbor next door, Tobi. She was the added bonus. When needing something or had a questions, the owners responded quickly. Would highly recommend.

Where do you live?

Great location but it's a work in progress

  • 3 of 5

Stayed the month of February, snowbird season. Many of the properties in this HOA are rentable and going through a lot of updates. This one still needs a lot but the couple that own it are very nice. That said, we arrived to a driveway full of pallets of patio block and a promise it would be done in 3 days. End of out month the contractor finally arrived and did the 10 hours of work and we never got to use pool because the backyard was such a disaster. Broken lawn furniture, a deck that hasn't been payed any attention in years and I would'nt walk barefoot on for fear so splinters. Carpeting throughout is filthy and really needs cleaning, but most likely replacement. Glassware and silverware for everyday use are really lacking and budget items. But plenty of weird stuff like mixed glasses for drinks and wine. Owner had just received new couches for living room, so from reviews that was a improvement. They also fully painted the kitchen and cabinets, that helped give it a better feel. What the place really needs is a strong cleaning and some TLC, but they seem to be working toward that slowly. Also the first home we ever stayed at with nothing for the renter for pool or beach. Not a toy, chair , float, nothing. Also the dishwasher didn't clean at all, so all dishes done by hand.

We tried to fix and repair a few things during our stay because they were a nice couple. Internet has now been updated since the router was vintage, and couldn't handle more than a single device in use. Also in a home of this size and cost you'd expect more than basic cable and a aging DVD with no movies. The golf cart had just been repaired and was a nice plus. Block and a half to beach was a perfect location.

We are very happy of our choice to stay here. Everything we needed and expected. We stayed here in Dec and it was as if we had our own beach !! We loved the area and shopping was great.

Excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

We love Destin, for that reason we was looking to spend Christmas brake there with warmer weather than Nashville. The Tuscany Sun is a beautiful property, needs few updates. My only complain was a lot of dust, seems like needs a deep cleaning. When I want to swipe was not a broom, I had to buy one. The dishes were dirty. The owner absolutely very nice. Respond quickly. I'm totally sure I'll visit Tuscany Sun again.

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.
