Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. The size of the house was perfect for our 2 families and the house was stocked with everything that we needed. It was a short walk to the beach and the pool...which we used a lot!

plenty of room lots of beach toys and tents to use quite neighbor hood with the exception of one neighbor. there were two pools close to house. they supplied some games and cards and tv and movies to watch. i never did get anyone out to look at the refrigerator or the washer that was the only problem we had someone in the family read the guest book then left. LOL Pleasant stay would stay again

Owner's Response: Thanks for the good review. Sorry to hear you had problems with the appliances. I always leave my number on the HomeAway website and my responses so that renters can elevate these sorts of things, and I can resolve them quickly. Hope you had a great time on the beach and the surrounding amenities. Can't beat that white sand! Steve

Beautiful house on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

2 the Beach was a beautiful house with everything we needed for our group of 11. Spent lots of time on the sugar white sand, in the community pools, shopping, enjoying local restaurants and spending quality time with friends and family. Kitchen is fully loaded with everything you could possibly need and the master bath was....WOW! Super comfy beds and plenty of room for everyone. Enjoyed nightly walks around the neighborhood and relaxing by the ocean. Walk to the ocean was minimal and the beach wagons were a HUGE lifesaver! We will be booking this home again when we return to Destin!
