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.

Perfect location! Nice large house with lots of space and walk across the street to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

I loved the house, the location and amenities. The only reason I don't give this house 5 stars is because the bathrooms and furniture could be updated. Otherwise the pool was great, we also had our own garage and a lot of parking off street. It was just across the street to beautiful Crystal Beach. The house is very spacious and had a lot of conformtable sleeping space. We had two families along for our trip and there was plenty of room. The property was very close to all the grocery stores, convenience stores and restaurants. I definately would go again!

Beautiful home, lots of space, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property the week of July 9th. The property was as beautiful as advertised. The walk to the beach was short. The actual location was low traffic and close to all the shopping and restaurants.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Myself and my husband's whole family stayed in the Family Tides property just this past week for my sister in laws wedding. There was plenty of room for all of us and having the back house was nice to have the families with little ones to run around. The pool was great for days and nights when we didn't want to head to the beach and it was big enough for all of us! Sitting out on the balcony and watching the water was relaxing in the early morning. If you like to walk or run the paths in front of the home and all the way down the street was nice. A couple of the people who stayed rented scotters for the week and traveld around on them since everything was so close. Mike was amazing with everything. When we arrived there were just a few items that we noticed and after contacting Mike he had someone there within 30 minutes!!! Some things I would suggest, go to the left if you are trying to go to the beach it seems less crowded, and for $20.00 you can rent 2 beach chairs with an umbrella. At the time of our visit there were plenty of beach chairs at the property and we didn't need to even bring ours from home! The beach cart was a life saver going to the beach with several small children and their belongings. Overall the location and the property were amazing and if we have a big group come down again we will happily stay here again.
