The property was very nice.

The beach was a short walk (3 mins) and the beach was beautiful. It was very nice to have our own pool to jump in and relax after the hot days.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families with 6 adults and 6 kids. We all had a place to sleep. The pictures are completely accurate. The house was so clean when we entered it was really nice. As people have said, they they have pretty much everything you need there. We brought stuff, but didn't need to use most of it. The walk is accurate, it took us about 10 minutes with kids in tow. It was nice to stay off the beach so it was quiet. It was definitely a short stroll.

No one has mentioned this, but when you pull the wagon to the beach, there is a long case of stairs. It is very difficult to go down with the wagon. You either need two people to carry a heavy wagon down or offload everything at the top of the staircase. Not a huge deal (we carried lighter and lighter each trip), but I wish the beach access had ramps. How do those with mobility issues get down?

It was great to have our own private pool to be able to swim in at home. The owners even came by to greet us during our trip. Very nice people. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Here is detailed list of items in the garage:

A Wagon, Beach Chairs, Camp Chairs, Sand Toys, Boogie Boards, Bikes, Shade Umbrella

The house included plenty and plenty of towels, starter items such as soaps and laundry detergent.

Of course there are some areas of improvement. All minor, but would definitely take it to the top level!

-Darkening curtains. Destin is at the very beginning of the CST. We are from Houston, so the 500+ miles east makes a difference. The sun was up around 5:45 am this time of year and so were our kids! We had to put up towels to darken the windows, but it would be nice to have darkening curtains already up for nap times and such as well.

-Propane outdoor water heater. It was nice to be able to rinse off and shower outside - (Some adults did), but the kids and sensitive adults would not touch it because of the cold cold water. They are cheap on Amazon, but would go a long way in helping 12 people shower with only 2 bathrooms inside the home.

-A cheap electric blower. (As part of the rules) I cleaned out the garage by broom from all the sand, but it would be nice just to blow it out :o)

beach living

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home in a great location. The beach is a short walk and the provided cart, umbrella, beach chair and sand toys were so helpful! There is so much to do here even if it is a rainy day- the outlets, Destin Commons, etc. I would highly recommend staying here as it was a great experience for our family!
