Nice home needed some clean up

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our group. Driveway is tight for our vehicles and golf cart. We were actually called on because we had a car parked sideways and the golf cart in the yard at one point because it was so tight. There was a horrible sulphur smell in the garage from the sprinkler system. Lights inside the pool did not work. Porches and pool area could use some refreshing. Disposal did not work correctly becasue whoever was there before had put limes in the sink but mntc. fixed quickly. Those are all the minuses. House was nice on the inside. Great kitchen and living area for large group. Beds were fine. Location could not be better.

Spacious, close to the beach, secure vacation home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week for spring break in this home and loved everything about it. Everyone had plenty of space to spread out when we wanted to and the private pool was a huge hit for everyone. While not beach front, this home is a VERY short walk to the private beach entrance. The beach is gorgeous (and NOT crowded), with clean, white sand and our included beach service was ready and waiting for us daily. The security in this community is top notch as well! The management company, Compass Resorts, is the most responsive I've ever encountered (and we rent VRBO every time we vacation). During our stay the microwave stopped working one evening, so I called and left a message, expecting to hear something back the following morning. Within 30 minutes we had a replacement brought to us. Then they followed up with a phone call the next day to make sure everything was working properly with the replacement. The location couldn't have been better. Shopping, groceries, and attractions are all just minutes away. We plan to stay at Dunes of Destin complex again next year!
