Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time making Sunkissed at Kokomo our home away from home. The beach was a short walk away, the beach wagon and coolers were used daily, the pool was a great place to unwind, the kitchen was put to good use and had most everything we needed, the location of the house was central to grocery store and other shopping, comfy beds, plenty of room to spread out in the house, two pack n plays, plenty of bath towels, privacy for our family...we felt safe and tucked away in our little retreat!! Thanks for a great week!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The minute you walk in the front door of this house, you know you are going to have a great vacation. This house is absolutely beautiful with everything you could possibly need to make for a perfect vacation. The house was so tastefully decorated and was very comfortable. The house was very clean, and the layout was perfect for a girls’ week at the beach.

It was convenient to everything but far enough away to be relaxing especially while enjoying the view of the nature preserve in the back. It was a short walk to the beach. The heated, private pool was also a wonderful feature, and there were plenty of comfortable chairs by the pool for everyone to enjoy and a table with chairs where you could also enjoy a meal by the pool. The trees around the pool provided enough shade when we were ready to get out of the sun but not ready to go inside.

I would certainly recommend this house to anyone planning a trip to Destin. I have, as a matter of fact, already recommended it to a friend who is planning a trip to Destin in the fall. I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this house. I think it would be perfect for any age group and cannot imagine anything you could need that you would not find in this house.

Lovely Home and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home was literally a 4 minute walk to the beach. We walked through the parking lot of the hotel at the end of the street (Sea Oates - I think) and down the boardwalk. The residents of the community where the rental house is located have "resident access" to this boardwalk. We loved the location because the house was on a dead end street - meaning no through traffic. The back of the house faces over a nature preserve, so it is quiet and peaceful. There are three levels to the home with many spots for family members to sit and relax (screened in porch on top level; table in front of house by pool; nice upper level family room etc). Beds comfy. Bottom bunk bed a bit tight (meaning the top bunk is not raised very high up), but doable for smaller kids. Loved all the bathrooms - all very nice and each bedroom has their own bath. Kitchen gorgeous and well stocked with pots, pans, utensils. TV in family room great. I would suggest maybe a few instructions somewhere because to me there were a lot of remote controls (although my kids figured everything out in 5 minutes). Pool very nice! We paid to have it heated, although weather was very nice while we were in Florida, so sun probably would have heated pool up fine. Still - better safe than sorry! There is a light switch on railing near pool sort of hidden by leaves, which lights up a bunch of string lights over the outside table - nice atmosphere. We really enjoyed spending time eating outside. Narrow empty lot on one side of this rental home; another rental house on other side. Only problem was we were given the wrong entrance code for the door by the Real Joy Company when we first arrived and had to call and then get the number from the house manager, who immediately gave us the correct entrance code. No real problem, just Real Joy code was way off - and they even sent us that wrong code via email. When we called Real Joy saying we couldn't get in the house, they said if we had a problem we should call the house manager - whose number we would find IN the rental house :-) It was a bit comical and it all worked out and wouldn't stop us in any way from renting this house again. Perfect size, responsive house manager (they also came immediately and took away the trash the previous residents had left in the bin - I guess the renters forgot which day was trash day). I thought that was great and quick service by the manager. You can walk to the Crab Trap restaurant - 10 minutes
