About Five Star Beach Properties and Bliss Beach Rentals

At Five Star and Bliss Beach Rentals, we strive to be different – and we are. Unlike other big-box management companies, our personalized approach and dedication to service allows us to put greater emphasis on creating a unique and memorable experience for every guest that walks through our doors.

Our goal is to pair exceptional properties with unparalleled service. That is why we hand-select only the best homes in Destin and 30A to represent. If you have a property that you are considering renting, we'd be more than happy to provide a proposal and projection.

Experience Service

We believe a vacation rental should be more than a place to rest your head; it should be a place to escape and experience luxury. But offering five-star accommodations is just the start to enhancing our guest's experiences. We treat our guests like family, offering personalized greets, dedicated concierge services, free passes to daily activities and attractions, in-house cleaners, and a professional maintenance team available 24/7.

The views were to die for!

  • 5 of 5

This home is by far the nicest vacation rental I have ever stayed in! The views are mesmerizing and the home was perfect for our family. Cooking in the kitchen was an adventure. I am a home cook and love to cook large meals for my family. I never once ran out of counter space! I can't express enough how much I loved this house. Five Star was very responsive with our needs as well. We wanted an in-home massage and didn't know who to contact, but Five Star had a recommendation on hand and even went as far as to schedule them for us! This is just what you want on vacation, to just relax. Thank you Five Star!

Amazing! Truly a Wonderful Family Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My son was getting married in Destin, and while I live only 15 minutes from Bella Luna, my home would never have been able to provide the comfort and the Destin vacation to my incoming family members that Bella Luna was able to do.

We had exactly 15 people in the house and we were all very comfortable. The rooms are all large and beautifully appointed. Two of the king bedrooms upstairs have balconies and amazing views of the ocean. My husband opened the drapes on our first morning there while I was still in bed and it gave me goose bumps to lay there looking out over the magnificent Destin ocean.

The kitchen is open to the very large dining and entertaining areas that all have views of the ocean. We were all able to eat together and cook together. We loved the openness of the space and the togetherness we were able to enjoy during our weekend together.

Some of us either wanted to sleep in or go to bed early based upon how late the night had been the day before. The house is built so solid that noise just wasn't an issue for those trying to play as well as those trying to rest.

If there was anything negative that could possibly be said, it's that it was tricky getting the sound on to the TV. BUT the 5-Star Maintenance Crew is on duty 24/7 so was able to help us over the phone right away.

We'll be back! We had a such a grand time and decided it was just the perfect way for our family to hang out for a weekend or maybe even a week (if folks can stay that long).

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bella Luna house during spring break 2013 and we were highly impressed with the entire house and its location. The pictures do no serve it justice. The accommodations are extremely roomy and spacious. Everything is sparkling clean and the floor plan is made for larger groups. The kitchen is full of everything you need. It's décor is upscale and cozy. We absolutely loved this home. Worth every penny.
