About Jimbo Tate - Owner

Family of 4 from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We love to get away to THE House in Destin when ever we get a chance!

Jimbo Tate - Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why Jimbo Tate - Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We fell in love with the most beautiful beach in the world. The water is a deep emerald green. The sands are powdery white that glissen in the sunlight. And such spectacular sunsets. Nothing beats Destin, Florida.

What makes this house unique

Family Tides is really close to anyting you want to do or any where you need to go in Destin.

My family and 11 others shared Family Tides for a week in June 2016 and we had a blast! The house and property is fantastic. Family Tides was far more than we expected. This house is fully updated and there is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space! The kitchen is incredible with plenty of space to have everyone gathered around. The private pool is a plus as well. The beach is a quick five minute walk (if that), and there are lots of sidewalks to walk or ride your bicycles on. The house is also centralized near plenty of shopping and places to eat. The owner, Jimbo Tate, is one of the nicest people to deal with and he is very responsive and attentive. We have decided to make this an annual trip and Family Tides will be our annual go-to spot.

Family Tides was a terrific place for our family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a week's stay with extended family at Family Tides and the experience couldn't have been any better! The home is spacious with lots of places for folks to escape to when and if quiet time is needed, it's just a short walk from the beach (even the little ones were able to handle it...) and it's very convenient to all kinds of shopping - including groceries! Our favorite places to hang out, though, were the 3rd floor balcony where we started many a morning sipping coffee and taking in the gulf view and the back porch/pool area where we enjoyed family meals at the picnic table and jumped in the pool whenever we felt the urge. All in all, it was an incredible experience! Thanks, Jimbo, for making your home available for our family to enjoy!

Can we stay forever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

November in Destin is the best. We had temps in the upper 70's! The water was beautiful. Family Tides was just what we were looking for. Great home, nice neighborhood and in very close proximity to the beach. There was a minor problem with the dryer, but Jimbo and Rex were very timely in their response. We look forward to coming back next year and years to come!

Our Family of 12 had an awesome time! The house is huge with lots of amenities. The beds are so comfortable. Th owners really keep the house up to date with granite counter tops, wood floors and nice tv's in every room! The booking process was easy and quick! The house is in located in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of destin. The walk to the beach is very short and easy. We have already booked the house for 2016!

Awesome Trip! Perfect House! Owner was Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Family Tides is in a perfect location, within walking distance from beach and in the Heart of Destin. The house is located in a beautiful little neighborhood of Crystal Shores. House accomodated our whole family of 16 with ease. The house has an awesome open floor plan, fresh paint and new flooring was beautiful, and allowed everyone to congregate together downstairs without being cramped. Jimbo was awesome at reservations and getting us prepared for Destin. Did't have any issues during our stay. The house was spotless and well maintained! Everyone had a great time. After this stay, all of my friends and family are talking about making this house MUST location for an annual reunion. Highly recommended.

Goldens getaway

  • 3 of 5

overall the house was rented for a decent price, the house was to accommodate 18 people comfortably, the house only accommodated 14 people comfortably 4 people slept on couches downstairs living room upstairs sleeper sofa where rack and bent mattresses very uncomfortable. The house needs new cookware pots pans etc. the swimming pool needs some work, upon arrival the first night late at night downstairs king size bed had dog hair and smells like dog had been on it next morning when making breakfast using the bowls there was dog hair in the bowl all dishes had to be washed before being used. Overall the house was rented for a decent price for the number of people the last night before leaving the home one of the cars back to tires were punctured with what appeared to be a nice pic both tires punctured in the sidewall and ruined tires were brand new Michelin. Family contacted the owner the owner said to make a police report that the cameras do not pick up or have good night vision.

Owner's Response: Family Tides is a 5 Bedroom House that consist of 3 king beds, 1 queen bed, 1 day bed with trundle, 2 bunkbeds and 2 sofa beds. This is stated on our VRBO page and HomeAway Page. It is also listed that bunk beds are not made for adults over 120 lbs. to sleep on, especially the top bunk beds. Sofa Beds are sofa beds, sorry that we could not make them more comfortable but it is a sofa bed. I DO GUARANTEE, that our beds in our bedrooms are some of the most comfortable beds that you will sleep on. All king beds and queen beds are pillow top mattress. All bedding / comforters are washed and replaced with fresh linen after every guest. We do not accept animals of any kind. Cookware was replaced in July of this year. As the home owner I feel it is necessary to protect my rental and it’s reputation. This guest claims to have had 2 tires iced pick in our driveway on Friday Night. When I was informed of this 10am on Saturday, I asked her to please call the Okaloosa Sheriff Department to get a police report. I told her I would review our security cameras. After reviewing camera footage, Nothing or No One appears on the film. She informed me that they had already been to Sears and got the tires replaced that morning and they were on there way back home, so she couldn’t meet with the police. My question is how do you get to Sears with 2 flat tires and 1 Spare? I have also contacted the Okaloosa Sheriffs Department and was told that No police report was ever filed on this, nor have they encountered any homes in the area that have had this occur.
