Leap of Faith is exactly as described. Plenty of room for the 9 of us. The house is an easy walk from the beach (less than 2 blocks) and the community pool was 2 doors down.
Kathy is a pleasure to work with and is quick to respond to any email or phone call.
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! I hope you will come back again soon!!!!
Leap of Faith Destin FL
As with all past stays at Leap of Faith, we really enjoyed our time there (Jan & Feb 2018) and especially at the Snowbird rate.
Everything was in good working condition with exception of the dryer. It should not take 2 each 80 minute cycles to dry a load of towels/hand towels and wash cloths. It may need to be repaired, but in truth it along with the washer probably should be replaced.
We did experience leaks during an extreme rain that lasted over 16 hours and produced 10+ inches of rain for the area.. There is ceiling damage in the great room and the master bath. This was reported to the management co as well as the owner. Nature sometimes wins!
Otherwise, no issues. Great property, nice, safe & convenient neighborhood.
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay once again at the Leap of Faith! I look forward to seeing you again next season! You will be happy to know that the roof is being replaced as we do not wish to chance having another torrential rain cause issues! I do wish you had mentioned the troubles you were having with the dryer while you were here! We would have taken care of it asap! I just received word from the owners that they will replace the washer and dryer as well!
Bye for now!

Peaceful, "like home" vacation
We have come back to this neighborhood twice and love it more each time. Quiet, clean neighborhood. Rental company is super friendly and helpful! House is clean and great for a small or large family! Short walk to the beach and our fav breakfast place Camille's. Close to grocery shopping & outlets as well. Pool is clean and great for a non-salty swim day. Highly recommended this house & Property Mgmt company! We will be back!
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for this lovely review as well! I hope you will come back to visit us again soon.
Bye for now!
Great property has everything you need for a relaxing holiday
The property is located in a lovely community. It has all the amenities needed, it is very clean and the internal decoration is very elegant. Kitchen is fantastic fully equipped. We used the outside BBQ a lot to prepare our fresh fish that we were getting almost every day from Sexton's fish market. Walking distance to the beach, we never used a car and then you find your reserved umbrella and chairs! What a great surprise! Especially when the beach is crowded you do not need to worry. Coming back, the outdoor shower is the first stop. Having both hot and cold water makes the internal showers a redundancy -:). The shopping center is at walking distance, although we were using the car for a 3 minute drive. We enjoyed the cool breeze coming from the sea while walking at the shops. We had a great time, stayed for 2 weeks and we did not get bored! Great family vacation we will be back soon.
Thank you for this lovely review! I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and I hope you will come back again soon!!!!
