Beach Bungalow rental - July 2017

  • 4 of 5

The house we ended up staying in was approx 1400 sq feet and had 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining area and kitchen; The house was in great condition and the owner made sure it was well stocked before we arrived -- linens for bed / bathrooms; cleaning supplies, toilet tissue / paper towels; dishes and there was even a shed with beach items such as boogie boards and children's sand toys; The location was great as it was within walking distance to beaches; There were various shops around and bike trails as well as area attractions in the Destin area which was about a 15 minute drive from the house's location. Even though there were other rentals close by, we were never disturbed by loud night life/partying so that was a plus; Overall, this house accommodated our needs -- there were 7 us staying there; Fortunately, the couch was a pull out bed so everyone had a bed to sleep in! We were happy with our first time house rental experience and would consider doing this again! Thanks for making our vacation enjoyable!

The house was absolutely wonderful. The inside was very clean, bright and inviting. Everything was there that we needed to prepare meals for our family and there was even two showers outside to wash sand off. We loved it and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay.
