experience could have been better
the house was very nice but didn't feel like a beach house. there were a lot of rules on how everything must be cleaned and organized that seemed a bit excessive compared to other check out procedures we have been through with specific fines listed for each item done improperly. the owner had to come meet with us to make sure we were not lying about who was staying in the house which took away from the relaxation of our vacation worrying about if we would be home when she came by. overall, not as relaxing as the owners could have made it, but the neighborhood/trolley/pool/beach itself were great.
Wow! Sadness! This was our first ever 3 star review, with over 85 reviews!
If you look at the pictures online, the house isn't decorated beachy, if that's what the guest meant.
The reason we had to meet this guest was because we made an exception to take a group of 10 college spring breakers! With college groups, we require a chaperone to stay at our home with them. The college spring breakers prior to this group, lied to us about having a parent/chaperone, so we just wanted to be sure this time. We meet the guest right at the house, at her suggested time, to make it convenient to her. This is our thank you for renting to college groups.
This home is right next to the Destin Commons and is around a bunch of great places to eat! The community had a trolley that takes you to and from the beach and it is very quick! Can’t wait to stay here again!
Everything as described on listing
We had 2 families and grandparents. Plenty of room Fir all of us. Had a great time and would be happy to return.
Thank you for the 5 Star Review! Glad you have a great time! Come back soon!
I really enjoyed it !
It looks exactly like the pics. After looking around and reading reviews a lot of places where not as they appeared to be . So I was very skeptical! But not this one everything to the T. Would definitely book again
Thank you for the great comments! We hope you will come back soon and enjoy our home!
Exactly What We Were Seeking!
A beautiful home, in a secure, gated community. The Villages of Crystal Beach in general and Chilly Gilley specifically were perfect. Peaceful and close to restaurants, shops, beaches and golf. Great complex with very private, spacious, pool and poolside lounging area. Rebecca and Paul have a beautifully decorated home that was comfy from the moment we stepped foot on the property. We recommend this property to any and all seekers of panhandle rest and relaxation.
Overall impression is good
We loved the area, the directions of how to get into the unit, the convenience of having everything nearby, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the size of the bedrooms and dining area. The kitchen is a bit small, but adequate. There were minor inconveniences, which did not impact us terribly, but were a little bit annoying. There were only 3 garbage bags for 5 days, & we ran out on the 2nd day, and since we were instructed to not put loose garbage in the bins, understandably, we used grocery bags which were thankfully left by someone else. There were a lot of warning notes posted everywhere, too, with the threat of fines if we did not comply. The bathroom shower upstairs has a warning, about the shower curtain, but even if you use it properly, water still goes everywhere, so it's not the user's fault for this, but the design of the tub itself. I know these are little quirky annoyances, but it did matter. We stripped the bed linens as asked, and obeyed the rules, but we wondered "how much time does it save the cleaning service to do that job themselves?" Perhaps 5-10 minutes? Wouldn't it leave a better taste in your guests' mouths if you said "don't worry about anything, the cleaning service (that you paid for) will take care of everything?" Also the dishwasher was not working properly, we did one load and it was fine, but the 2nd time it would not work, the detergent dispenser was broken, we aren't sure. When we texted Rebecca, she told us not to worry about it. But we were glad it didn't break on the first day we were there. We ended up leaving dirty dishes in the dishwasher plus quite a few on the small kitchen counter.
A few of the mattresses should be replaced, especially the master bedroom, it feels like you are sleeping in a hammock, very uncomfortable.
The neighborhood was fairly quiet (as were we, because there were warnings about being loud) except for the next door neighbor's two dogs, who were left on their own, on the balcony, all day, to bark at us.
Overall, it served our purpose and it was fine. Rebecca was pleasant to deal with, was quick to respond to our questions, and allowed us early entry (no charge) since the unit was vacant.
Enjoy the wonderful bike/running path located 2 blocks from the house, and is great for a great morning walk/run or evening walk/run and enjoy the view of the beach and beautiful houses for about 6 miles along 98.
