We love the fact that the beaches here are pristine and uncrowded - yet we are close to restaurants, and activities. This is a very Family friendly environment.
Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed with the property. Upon arrival it wasn't clean, the sheets had stains on them and the house would not stay cool. There were many parts of the house that were unfinished. There is also a roach problem. We loved the beach but the property was extremely disappointing considering the amount of money that we spent.
Had a great time. Close to a quite beach and people don't bother your stuff. On a street with very little traffic. Ready to got back any time.
Let me first start out by saying that when we arrived at the house it was not clean (due to some confusion with the cleaning lady). We contacted the owner and she resolved the issue fast and within 2 hrs the cleaning lady made the house spotless (She was apologetic for the inconvenience). That rough start aside, the house was perfect. We loved the views from the two decks where we spent each breakfast looking out over the ocean. The house is located right outside the majority of crowded areas, which was perfect for our family. All things entertaining, food, and recreation were all within a quick 20 min drive. It is important to note that this is an older rental which might bother some but it was perfect for our family, Would rent again!
The house was spacious. Located at a great place.
The view was beautiful, the house was comfy, but a little worn out. Patches of siding off the house, paint not completed in some rooms, and some patchy woodwork on the balconies made me a bit nervous but the newly renovated kitchen was a great surprise!! We would definitely revisit
This rental is very close to the beach and the views from the master bedroom are beautiful. Very clean and comfortable. Would definitely rent again if visiting the area again.
A Water Park and Putt-Putt located in Destin; There are Free Outdoor Movies/Concerts during the Summer at Gulf Place and Seaside. Premier Outlet shopping located minutes away. Sea kayak, bike and YOLO board rental. Grayton Beach nature preserve and hiking trails minutes away.
