Amazing house and great location!

Can't beat the proximity to the beach and the town. House was clean and spacious, plenty of room for a large group. Would highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Destin.

Plenty of room. Close to the ocean Could use a few updates but overall nice stay.

  • 4 of 5

Home could use some updates and door lock was difficult to use on front door. Property manager was very responsive and place was very clean. Plenty of space for large groups with the additional house behind pool

Nice property and attentive host

  • 5 of 5

We (my family and 2 others) were evacuating from Hurricane Irma and booked this home on very short notice. The home was perfect for us. Plenty of room and the extra space in the pool house (over the garage) made it even better. The location is convenient to everything. Mike went out of his way to accommodate us because of the storm. He allowed us to extend our stay with little notice and just generally tried to help. We can't wait to visit again-hopefully under less stressful circumstances!

Beautiful home and great pool! Perfect location that was close to beach access!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! It is super close to beach walk and great view of the ocean. The house was perfect for our group of 3 diff families . The extra house was nice for our parents to get some quiet time away from all the kids:) pool was very large and the kids loved it! No complaints about the house really except could use a few updates on couch and stool cushions (stains and such). Overall the house was very clean and we def enjoyed our stay here. The owners were very quick to respond to help w anything we needed ! Would def recommend staying here!

A lot of space and great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Destin. There was plenty of room for our huge family in this house.

A big thank you to Mike for his fantastic communication. It started out with a thorough welcome packet of information. There were a couple of maintenance issues when we first arrived, including a slow-draining tub (which happens in every house, including your own home, LOL), but he sent friendly repair guys out to address them quickly.

If you walk out of the house and head to the public beach access to the right, that public beach area is only wide enough to put up an 8' x 8' tent. It is a shorter walk, so only take this side if you are going to rent an umbrella. The beach access to the left is larger and not that far at all.

The pool is great! The picnic table and dining table out there both get some good shade, so I was able to do a little work out there while watching the kiddos swim!

The kitchen has a large pantry to keep all of our non-perishable goods for the week. Plenty of parking if you have a number of people driving.

Photos and descriptions on this site are accurate.

Thanks again, Mike, for your hospitality.
