Villa Bianca Home in Destin, FL

  • 4 of 5

Villa Bianca was a stunning beach property with six bedrooms and 7 baths. Also included were two full kitchens. The views from all the decks were overlooking the ocean and breathtaking. We absolutely LOVED the beach and the location of this home. We also loved the motif in the house - so elegant, but liveable. Having the beach right outside our door was pure luxury.

There were, however, a few glitches during our stay. For paying a hefty amount for rental, we assumed everything in the house would be in working order. That was not the case. Neither of the washing machines worked properly - very frustrating. Also, in one of the kitchens, the stovetop was really hard to use because there were no directions. In addition, the television in one of the family/living rooms was inoperable. We were given 2 beach chairs and an umbrella daily which were set up for us on the beach. We couldn't understand why we were given only 2 chairs when there were 9 of us. Of course, for a fee we could order more chairs. One other issue we had was with the air conditioning. It was set so that we could not make it warmer in the house and it was uncomfortably cool on the 2nd floor.

I must say that the management company did an excellent job of repairing a refrigerator that stopped cooling on our second day and the TV very soon after we reported the fact that neither was working.

All in all, it was truly a memorable vacation with gorgeous surroundings - just too bad we had to deal with several appliances that didn't work.

Villa Bianca

  • 4 of 5

The home is lovely, furnishings are beautiful. The televisions didn't work for a bit and it took a couple of days for someone to come and fix them, windows were very dirty but someone came within the hour to wash the patio doors. Some of the cooking pans had crusty leftovers on them, LOL, I'm sure this added flavor to our food. We had a wonderful time, we were on vacation so television wasn't that important to us but our Grandson wanted to watch Scooby doo at night. The Staff was great we would definitely rent from Five Star Properties again.

Summer 2014!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Villa Bianca and Five Star really catered to our every need. They even had someone great us once we arrived! Being right on the beautiful beach is the reason we keep coming back to Destiny by the Sea. It is the perfect neighborhood for our kids to play and stay safe. The two full kitchens were perfect for entertaining everyone and the home overall had a very cozy feel to it. We will definitely be coming back!

Amazing home

  • 4 of 5

This home is stunningly beautiful. There are 6 bedrooms, all ample size and each bedroom has its on bath. On the listing it says 5 but there are 6 bedrooms with 2.5 half baths. We enjoyed the kitchens (there are 2) and all 3 decks. The only problem we had was a little water bug/roach issue. Renovations were just finished on this home so maybe that's where they came from. Better lighting on the 2nd level deck would be great, there is enough light on the lower level but only amber lights on the 2nd level. The house is right on the beach which is excellent. We plan on returning in 2 years and enjoying the house just as we did this year. Five Star Gulf Rentals are amazing to deal with; they make everything so easy! Thanks again all and keep up the good work that you do!

Great Girls Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with the customer care that David and all of the girls gave us on our girls vacation. I would definitely recommend Five Star Properties. And I have mentioned them already to several people.

Spring Break 2012 in Destin

  • 4 of 5

Very nice quiet, gated community with full time security. Beaches were never crowded. Nice community pool. Well appointed home, great on-the-beach views. Teen boys loved the 1st floor 2 bedrooms with full kithcen and the privacy that came with it. Convenient location avoids much of the traffic near the high rise condos. Photos accurately reflect the home and furnishings. Flat screen TV on 2nd floor needs to be replaced, not working properly.
