About Corbin and Sunny

We want to welcome you to this beautiful paradise called Destin! We lived in Virginia Beach, Va for many years and then moved here 14 years ago (and both of us were originally born and raised in upstate New York) We've been in the rental business for 26 years.....been married 27 years.....and very happily at that! 15 years ago we were considering moving to Hawaii until a relative said we just HAD to visit Destin...he said it was like being in Hawaii right here on the mainland! So we visited and fell instantly in love with the place.....went home, sold our rental business and moved here in a matter of months. The rest is history. We have 2 children.....20 and 21.... & have homeschooled them from the start. We believe in Jesus!, family and integrity. Hopefully you will enjoy your Destin vacation! Once you get that sand in your can never get it out!

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay. Worked very well with the kids and grandkids. Grandkids loved the pool. The house is set up well for large groups. Sunny and Corbin are very accommodating. Beach is very close so we could go to the beach all morning and spend all afternoon at the pool. Can't wait til next year!

Owner's Response: Beautiful and wonderful family!! This was a large family(in number) and normally when big groups come we expect the worst after check-out(sorry to say) but to our Blessed surprise this group was not stereotypical!! They did much of the laundry and left the home in incredible order....and they were soooo kind as well!! We look forward to having them back again!! Thank you!

Nice house and great pool

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and the pool was great. We had great weather. The only things we were just a little disappointed in were minor. We wished there had been more family friendly things in the kitchen. We had 11 kids with us and we had no plastic glasses. We would not use glass around the pool so we just bought plastic cups. We also had no large griddles for pancakes so breakfast took longer to make. I personally would have preferred 2 queen beds in some of the bedrooms instead of 1 king but that's just because of the way our grandkids sleep. The backyard itself was a little noisy since when we stood on our balcony and looked around we counted 6 or 7 other houses with pools just around us but that's because we're from an isolated area ourselves and used to a quiet backyard. I was expecting the house to be closer to the beach since it was listed as 300 footsteps. It's a little over a long block but a very easy walk so not a problem. The owners were very nice and responsive to our needs.

Owner's Response: Our business for the past 27 successful years has been to provide homes to our guests with a vacation environment that is not only lovely but spacious, clean, fun and safe(please read our other reviews). We feel this review was not completely honest and although it had a few politenesses in it.....the undertones hurt. This new home is NOT a long block to the beach. A long block is over 850 footsteps. Ours is a literal 300....a minute and a half walk. There are not 7 pools surrounding our home.....there are only 4....of which my family owns two of them. Our number one request is for king size beds, so apart from the children's bunk bed, kings are what we offer. The family knew well what the bedding arrangement was when booking the home this past January. With the groups 11 children they needed to be sure of that. And even tho they may be used to living in an "isolated area with quiet back yard" I can't imagine one might mistakenly think a tourist town is that. Our home does provide plastic wine and champagne glasses to use at the pool. Normally families purchase the large disposable plastic cups at Walmart to use for the week. I'm a gourmet cook so I try very hard to be sensitive to the needs of the designated family chef. Please read my reviews.....most mention how well-stocked the kitchen is. And when asked, we always try to bring our guests whatever might be needed to make the stay even better:) We understand that no one can please everyone all the time. So please don't wait until you return home and "fuss" when its too late.......because most situations can be remedied by a simple request.

Great house for our annual beach family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Seventeen members of our family enjoyed Island Obsession at the end of June. The house is well laid out with two bedrooms on the mail level with the kitchen and living space. Once you get to the second and third floors you can't hear the active ground level which makes it nice for napping children, or adults.

Although it is not visible in the photos there is a gate to the pool and we enjoyed blowing bubbles and other fun without fear of the little ones getting to the pool unexpectedly. The pool, hammock and swing/glider were all very well used. The short walk to the beach was no problem especially using the provided wagon. We cooked every night and enjoyed the well stocked kitchen. Great house with plenty of room.

Thanksgiving Dream

  • 5 of 5

For the past 25 years, our family has come to the panhandle of Florida for Thanksgiving. This past year, we needed a larger house to accommodate our ever expanding family. I found Island Obsession through VRBO and really thought it was too good to be true. There was room for all 17 of us with privacy we could not believe. The "great room" had plenty of space, and even with us in the kitchen we were able to remain a part of the socialization. The pool was heated at our request for a nominal fee and was used regardless of the cooler than usual weather. The location is great with the outlet malls one direction and other shopping very close by. The absolute best part was that we were together as a family. We have already booked for Thanksgiving 2014 and are looking forward to many more memorable times at Island Obsession.
