  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay! The house is absolutely wonderful. Very close to the beach.

The only issue was the TV's. We we not there to watch TV, so we can't complain! Would stay again in an instant!

Wonderful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the stay as there was plenty of room for the 18 of us. The older kids (19 to 21 yrs of age) enjoyed the carriage house. Plenty of room and just a short walk to the beach. Upon arriving after a long day of driving and fighting the bridge traffic(UGH!), it was nice to enter the beautiful clean home and have it being ours for a week. Appreciate the use of your home Mr. Godar , enjoyed it very much!!!!!

Another Great Stay in this Awesome House!!!!

  • 4 of 5

This is our 2nd time staying in this house. This house has some great features, for instance, the ice maker is great and so convenient. We were a group of 16 and there was plenty of room for everyone. We never felt like we were tripping over each other. The location is also awesome, close to The Crab Trap, and so close to the beach, of course! There were a few things that needed to be updated or fixed but nothing that will not happen when a house is being rented. I would recommend this house to any large group! Our kids also loved the private pool, actually they would have rather stayed there than the beach, but us adults overruled them most of the time! Thank you for sharing your wonderful home, we will def be back!!!

Loved the house! It was perfect for our extended family of 14 to stay comfortably. It's just a short walk to the beach, and the heated pool was a great plus! There is so much to do without having to drive anywhere. If you want to go, Destin harbor is a short drive down the road. The house had everything we needed to fix meals, and we did just that. Loved the fact that they had a grill on the main floor deck, by the way there is four decks altogether to enjoy, besides pool side. Anyone that stays here will be happy with the accommodations. A+ in my book!
