Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The homes in the gated community of Destiny by the Sea are absolutely beautiful... My family and I loved staying at Emerald Enchantment for a week and regretted it when we had to leave... The white sand beach was so pretty and just a short walk from the house... Unfortunately we weren't able to spend much time in the ocean because of the rough surf and red flags on the beach... The community pool was right across the road which was a plus because that's where we spent our afternoons.... I love how close the house was to all the shops and restaurants but we didn't have all the traffic since the main drag was the next road over.... Very large home and it was great for multiple families with kids off all ages

Awesome Destin Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and 3 children under the age of 2 1/2 and there was plenty of room for everyone. There are 3 floors, with the living area being on the 2nd floor. This open concept living/kitchen/dining area was wonderful & had a large overhang counter and chairs for extra seating. There was also a built in ice maker for ice to fill your cooler. There was a washer/dryer right off the kitchen and the furnishings were all very nice, but not so fancy that I had to worry about the kids spilling things. All surfaces were easy to clean. We pulled up the extra chairs from the small table by the balcony and seated everyone comfortably around the huge dining table. There is also a 1/2 bath right off the kitchen. We loved the huge balcony with lots of seating right off the family room. This was L shaped, and around the corner were 2 grills and a small table/chairs. From this area we had a great view of the swimming pool, which is right across the street. Wonderful pool and covered seating area. This was great for going back and forth with the little ones. The first floor had 3 bedrooms - one of which is a converted garage. It is huge! There were 2 queen beds, sink/fridge, a sofa bed, table and chairs and huge TV Entertainment center. This bedroom shared the bathroom with the 2nd bedroom. This was is not really big, but plenty big for the 1 queen, 1 single bed which was perfect for the adults and their 2 year old. The 3rd bedroom had it's own very large bathroom and huge walk-in closet. This room also had 1 queen and 1 single which again worked out great for the parents/2year old. The entire 3rd floor was the master suite! This room was huge, with a sofa bed, 2 chairs, big screen TV and awesome balcony with more seating. This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on (sleep number bed) and best pillows! The bathroom had a huge shower, double sink with plenty of storage and garden tub (which the little ones loved bathing in). Also had a remote control ceiling fan. The proximity to the private beach was a 5 minute walk. This is a gated, secure community and the only housing community directly on the beach. The kitchen was fully stocked and there were plenty of towels. The only slight negative I can comment on is the 1/2 bath off the kitchen needs to be totally updated as do the faucets in the master bath (same corroded duck faucets as downstairs in 1/2 bath). Top notch rental and rental company with a loaf of bread as a welcome when we arrived!

Great accommodations for a large family

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home the summer of 2012. The home is very spacious as we were a family of 6 (4 teenagers) and an additional friend for a total of 7 people. What is unique about this property that we appreciated is that the garage was converted into an apartment style room. This room could sleep a family of 4 plus with 2 queen beds and a sofa sleeper. This unit is a few houses down from the beach and right across from the swimming pool. We were very pleased with the accommodations and the quality of the furnishings. The beach was not crowded and the beach service for the chairs and umbrellas was good. The pictures accurately show the property, however one picture that should be displayed of the master bathroom as it has a huge Jacuzzi bath tub. I would highly recommend this property for a large family.
