First Panhandle Visit for Grands

  • 3 of 5

Nice, quiet, convenient property! The house had a good layout, and it was great to have nice linens, beach umbrella and chairs, and cleanup included in the fees. Having the pool within yards of the house was ad added benefit. The walk to the beach was short even though a couple of times we took the van for younger children and beach items. We don't recommend planning to use the sofa sleeper. The major issue we encountered was wasp nests. Our six-year-old grand-daughter had a miserable time for her stay since she was stung as soon as she touched the railing.

Owner's Response: Hi Hal! Thank YOU for staying with us at Beach Nest and taking the time to share some feedback. We're sorry to hear your first trip to the Panhandle with the grandkids was anything less than five stars. The home is great and we're glad you all enjoyed your time. As for the wasps- ouch! We appreciate you letting us know. We'll be sure to have our maintenance staff look into. We hope to have you all again soon that we can show you what a real five-star experience is like. Thanks again for choosing Bliss Beach Rentals for your getaway!

This was our 2nd time staying at this place. We absolutely love it and the location. However the dishwasher was broken. We reported it twice but it never got fixed and he had to hand wash dishes all week. Please fix this or replace the next people renting it won't have to hand wash the dishes. Thank you!

In regards to the dishwasher, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Our maintenance techs are working to resolve the issue. Thank you for letting us know.

Beautiful place to stay & would stay again with a few modications

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home for spring break. There was plenty of room (and beds) for everyone. Only a few complaints regarding the house; if you are staying in the master bedroom, because the living room is wood/tile floors, you can hear EVERYTHING going on in the kitchen, dining and living rooms. That was probably the absolute worst sleeping I've had. If you have to use the pull out couch upstairs for sleeping, bring your own pillows & blankets because there are none to be had in the house. Also, when walking up and down the stairs, make sure you have rubber bottomed shoes on - they are slick and falling or slipping was a daily occurrence.

You'll have a bit of a walk to the beach, but the roads around the area are geared for heavy foot and bike traffic. The kitchen was large and had most of the utensils needed to put together a meal. Pancakes for 12 was a challenge with only a small and medium sized skillet. Also, the bar/sink/island was very close to the back counter in the kitchen so more than 2 people trying to prep and/or cook was something which needed to be coordinated.

Parking was the only other item which is always an issue. 3 cars for a 4 bedroom house? We ran out of our allotted space quickly. Thankfully, there were few other renters around so we had the parking we needed.

Use of four bikes for free was awesome!!!

Destin Dream Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful "Beach Nest" provided us ample space, good times, and everything we needed. Beach and beach access point was close, as was restaurants and shopping. Our group of 10 fit comfortably and the property was 'homey'. The listing was accurate and the property management company knocked it out of the park. We had no maintenance or cleaning issues. We arrived and the home was in pristine condition and we enjoyed our welcome gift and greeting from Five Star. Highly recommend. 5 Stars!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for our first ever family vacation. The cottage was lovely with lots of space for everyone in our family ranging in age from 88 to 2. Beach was a little walk, but not too far, and the beach was very nice. The kids enjoyed the pool as well, which was super clean. Shopping and restaurants were close--something for everybody. The management company was very responsive, and I loved the app for my phone! It was a great week.
