Guestbook comments from the manager

My family of 18 recently stayed at Mama’s Happy house in Destin, FL. This house is beautiful and walking distance from the beach. Our kiddos loved the pool and we couldn’t keep them out. The service was awesome! Would totally recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental home in Destin, FL.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with our stay at Mamas Happy! The home had everything you could possibly need! Great pool! Accommodations were great too! We had 8 adults and 7 kids and had tons of space. Beach was a very short distance to walk! Panhandle has the most gorgeous beaches in Florida by far. Janet and Chris were great to work with. Hope to come back soon!

Destin Beachhouse getaway

  • 5 of 5

Between Panama City, Pensecola and now Destin this is now are most preferred beach get away hot spot vacation home! You won't find a more beautiful, clean and accommodating home of this size with your own pool, beach amenities (they provided beach toys, boogie boards, buckets, push cart, beach chairs/umbrellas) proximity to beach (literally across street), shopping (great stores too), groceries, restaurants, bars, and entertainment for kids rain or shine (bowling, movies, go karts, mini-golf, museums, etc). We had 12 kids and 9 adults and this house was perfect. We loved the up to date modern decor, maximum use of king size beds, and with the 2 detached separate living quarters this provided additional privacy/quieter areas for 2 other families with another kitchen and full fridge. The kitchen in main house is spacious and fully equipped to accommodate cooking for large numbers and we made use of gas grill for cooking out at pool. The bar stool seating and huge dinning room table provided plenty of space so we never felt over crowded. The outside wrap around deck on 2nd floor plus additional patio seating on side of house provided plenty of space to stretch out and relax. And for TVs, need not to worry there was a TV in all rooms (bedrooms, living rooms and even master bathroom with giant spa tub).

We plan to go back next year and I highly recommend anyone looking for spacious, clean, modern decor, with own pool and beach access to make your reservations early.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind (and detailed) review! I’m sure that will help future guests plan their vacation in our home. We also love the area! As you point, out, there are so many things to do close by. We’re glad your group had plenty of room and was comfortable. Our owners paid close attention to so many details when they did a complete remodel of the home a couple of years ago (her favorite is the giant Air Tub in the master bath!). We hope to see you on your next getaway to Destin! Thanks again for staying with us!

Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

There were 15 in our family and this was our first family vacation to Destin. We spent hours and hours searching for the perfect property and finaly ended up choosing Mama's Happy. The amount of time spent searching definately paid off. Mama's Happy was absolutely perfect. It's a beautiful peroperty, very well decorated and equipped for everything we needed. The location was perfect. The house was directly in line with public beach access. There were 4 or 5 houses between us and the beach which was great. We actually rented a golf cart to tote coolers and supplies to the beach since we had little ones, but it wouldn't be necessary. We also had teenagers, so the golf cart provided a fun way to get them out of the house after dark. We drove it to Sonic on a couple of occasions for late night milk shakes. The pool at Mama's Happy was a big hit too. Just beautiful. We couldn't be more happy with the rental company, the property, the location - everything. Just perfect.

Life is Good @ Mama's Happy!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Mama's Happy was wonderful. My husband and I were able to arrive a few days before the rest of our family. We stayed downstairs in the carriage house for the first part of our stay and moved upstairs after the rest of our family arrived. Upstairs and downstairs of the carriage house still looked brand new. The whole property has been very well maintained. The pool was already heated upon our arrival. Perfect temperature! The beach and several restaurants are within walking distance. Everything else you might need is located only a few minutes away. There was a total of eight adults staying at the house at one time. The main house provided more than ample space for everyone to gather around the table for dinner and socialize afterwards. I would definitely recommend this beach house for a romantic getaway or a family gathering. We will definitely return to Mama's Happy!

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Mama's Happy was fantastic. We had 15 people and we never felt crowded. The pool occupied the kids and adults for hours. We cooked most nights and the kitchen was set up perfectly. The beach is very close and the rental came with everything you need. Janet was extremely responsive and great to deal with. Overall, the trip could not have been better and Mama's house was a big reason why. We hope to be back next year!
