Great Location for beach week

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a very well designed community which is conveniently located near the beach, grocery shopping and other services. The property itself has a good flow and the rooms are adequately sized for the assigned purposes. Our family found the house to be very comfortable. The furnishings and decor are a bit understated, but this is a beach house so we did not find this an issue. The wear and tear of vacation renting is showing on the house. At some point soon, normal painting and maintenance will be required. The kitchen was minimally supplied with cooking supplies and utensils. Although not stocked for gourmet cooking, it was adequate for daily meals. The Shipwatch community is located on a private beach which gave our family a lot of room for relaxing, games, beach activities and hanging out. We highly recommend Shipwatch and plan to return again.

Excellent Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the most memorable vacation together. The house we stayed in was spacious, very clean on our arrival and Justin the maintenance personnel was friendly and courteous. He ensured our questions were resolved quickly. The lake view is absolutely relaxing from the back porch and the easy access to the private beach is great. We definitely plan to return for another family reunion in the future.

A Texas family reunites in beautiful Destin, Florida at Anchors Aweigh...

  • 5 of 5

From as far north as Hurst and Bedford, to as far west as Spring Branch and as far south as Port extended family reunited comfortably in this resort-style home. Our age group ranged from 6 years of age to 80; it was kid-friendly, yet sophisticated and perfect for entertaining the older crowd. Whether you are hungry for prestigious cuisine just down the road or you feel like embracing your inner chef, the kitchen graciously hosted multiple guests at one time and could seat 11+. This incredibly, luxurious home offered two private rooms (one with a screened in porch overlooking the fountain) with king-sized beds and their own adjoining private bathrooms plus three other bedrooms that shared a spacious semi-private bathroom all with granite countertops. Downstairs, the powder room was convenient for everyone to use as needed. We were all able to rest in peace and quiet even as others were up early and off to the beach (where we had a section all to ourselves), which was just around the corner. The deck also offered more space to share memories and cool-off in the jet-infused pool. The turtles and fish in the fountain pond outside anxiously awaited our visit; every time we went on the deck they quickly approached and enjoyed all handouts. The living room with the big screen TV was perfect to enjoy movies on Netflix while constructing the 1000 piece puzzle and playing games on the ample coffee table. And for the spills or sandy clothes, the quiet washer and dryer cleaned and helped us get back to the fun without the hassle. This could not have been a better vacation, and the well-maintained condo was the perfect setting for this reunion. Thank you Anchors Aweigh for an awesome stay! We look forward to our next reunion here!

We had a wonderful time staying at Anchors Aweigh! The home is just beautiful and so roomy with all the bedrooms and bathroom space and great living/kitchen and outdoor deck. We loved parking my brand new car in the garage and liked that you had the extra parking space at the front of the house. The kids loved playing in the pool and we enjoyed relaxing on the deck overlooking the pond and feeding the turtles and fish. The private beach area is beautiful and such a short walk. We could not believe how if we looked at either side of us how busy the beaches were with people and we felt like we had our beach to ourselves, loved it. Thank you to Jordan and Justin with the Property Management company they were so quick to help us with any questions or needs. We will definitely be back and hopefully soon.
