VRBO|HomeAway: Destin Florida Vacation Rental Beachfront

YAMS Destin purchased this townhome in 2013

Why YAMS Destin chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We picked this property because we step off our deck onto the beach. No streets - no public access.

What makes this townhome unique

We are gulf front! We have a private beach that we share with 9 other units. There is nothing quite like sitting on your porch during a beautiful sunny day or a stormy rainy day and just watching and listening to the ocean.

We love it here and know you will too!

We've tried to make 'You Are My Sunshine' a place we love to stay. We've added new bedding, decor, and other conveniences. We plan to keep improving and updating the furnishings on an on-going basis.

Beautiful and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. The best place thus far we have stayed. Very clean , good supplies in the kitchen, and the owner is very responsive. When we arrived the toilet downstairs was not flushing. Someone came out very quickly to repair it. Couldn't say enough good about the place. I do wish the hefty deposit was returned a bit more quickly. That's the only thing we didn't like.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! I'm glad you and your family had a good time at our home. It is especially nice to hear that we are the nicest place you've stayed! Please accept my apologies for the delay in getting your security deposit back. I see it took 3 weeks instead of the normal 1-2 weeks! I have no excuse for the delay except that with our crazy family schedule this summer and getting my daughter off to college, I forgot. Again, please accept my apologizes and I hope your family visits again.

The first words out of my daughter-in-law's mouth were, "It's just as beautiful as in the pictures!"

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were in paradise -- even with three small children. The kids never tired of the beach and the ocean, and when their parents took them anywhere else, they wanted to come home immediately. Even the 18 month old took to the beach and the water (although it took her a little longer). I never tired of the view from the deck, the lovely weather, the laughter of the kids, and digging and looking for shells. My granddaughter found a huge sand dollar and we took home some great shells.

The chairs and assorted playthings for the water and sand were great. The thing that all of us appreciated was the YAMS sign that pointed you back home after time on the beach. The first time I looked back toward the homes, I wondered which one was ours. I was so relieved to see that sign! Both of the older kids mentioned it too.

The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are clean and work perfectly. There are plenty of bathrooms and we were never waiting to get in one. There were so many extras in the kitchen! Even though your mentioned lots of little extras, we were surprised at how totally the kitchen was set up for beach entertaining. I was surprised at the number of hangers and the amount of storage space.

Your instructions and info about the area were helpful as were the brochures for boat trips we found in the coffee table. We rented some extra umbrellas and took advantage of one boat ride that the kids loved. The captain let them pretend to drive the boat for pictures and they were allowed to see close up the creatures that came out of the sea (manta ray, shrimp, fish, and crabs). We fell in love with Pompano Joe's.

Also, thank for putting up with two grandparents that aren't completely tech savvy. You were always patient and easy to work with. We feel like we know you. Next year is planned for Great Britain, but the year after, we will probably be back!

If anyone ever inquires about speaking to a former renter, I'm your cheerleader.

Thanks for everything,

Kay and Greg Shambaugh

Perfect location for a perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we booked, throughout our stay, to check out, we felt welcomed and cared for. YAMS is very clean and located right in the heart of Destiin allowing us to walk to dinner and dessert. The private beach is wonderful and so less crowded than the rest of the area. We loved our stay, all 9 of us, and you will, too.
