This house is gorgeous! Very spacious! The pool was perfect for when we got tired of being in the sand at the beach. We grilled a few meals and cooked breakfast almost every morning. It was excellent! We would love to stay here again. Beach is not far at all! We walked once, and drove down to the crab trap and that public beach access every other time bc there was more room on the beach there. Only about. 3 minute drive. Worth it.

Great House , Great Location !

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Had plenty of room and the private fenced pool area was nice when we were tired of the beach. The kitchen area worked out great, we cooked there every morning and evening. 3 blocks to the public beach access was an easy walk and kept us from having to park on the street. Would stay there again anytime !

Beautiful house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in destin. Definitely rent a golf cart to make the trip to the beach easier. Very close to Destin commons as well. Top floor bedroom does not have a door. Otherwise, it was a great time for my entire family.

Fabulous set up with plenty of room for family & friends! Great location. Very well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 - 3 moms and 6 kids ranging from 20 to 13 years. We had plenty of space in the house and the pool! Kids enjoyed the sand volleyball court. We had a problem with a balcony door sticking and it was handled quickly and on a Sunday. Would definitely recommend! Only a few blocks from the beach.

The home was very spacious and comfortably housed our group. Back yard and pool area where great. Everyone loved playing volleyball on the private court. Overall a wonderful week of lounging in the sun! Stores and attractions were in close proximity to the house as well.
