Beautiful, Clean Home!
Beautiful, Clean Home!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have stayed many other places while we vacationed in Destin, but none were are clean and well kept as your home.Your home had everything we needed to have a great family vacation. It was so clean and well supplied. It was nice to have use of extra beach chairs, umbrellas, wagons, beach toys and games. We had plenty of dishes, linens and cookware to make our stay very comfortable. We felt like we were at home. The house is located is a nice well maintained private subdivision with lots of amenities. My kids were able to ride bikes, play basketball, tennis and walk to the pool that is located right across the street. It is so convenient for families with young children. The only dsadvantage we found was the distance from the beach but with the tram running throughout the day it made traveling back and forth easy. We also loved the private beach pavillion. It nice having access to the bathrooms, food and drinks,rental chairs and umbrellas,and a place to store beach supplies and wagons. This was one of our best vacations ever! We felt so relaxed and comfortable in your home...we plan to come back next year. Thanks! The Nortmann Family

Thank you for letting us use your home for our vacation. We had a wonderful time and it was perfectly located, just the right size and check in and out was a breeze. Emerald Shores is a nice peaceful subdivision and the kids loved being able to ride their bikes on the sidewalks. We look forward to being able to rent from you again soon.

We had a great experience with this house. We have rented in Destin many times and this was one of our favorites. It was by far the cleanest and most tastefully decorated! The house is really close to one of the two pools, which was great for the kids. We practically had the pool to ourselves the entire week. We were right by the basketball and tennis courts, plus the house is in the cul-de-sac, which again was awesome for the kids. There was plenty for them to do without being too far from the house. It was a short walk to the beach, but the tram was definitely a bonus. It was large enough for our coolers and countless beach toys we take with us. The house also had a wagon, so we’d pull it full of toys, chairs, coolers, towels, and floats to the beach and to the pool. One of the best things about this house was the beach access. There were bathrooms, showers to rinse off after the beach, a little bar selling soda, beer, and snacks, plus there were picnic tables to sit and eat. The owner, Peggy, was great to work with. She was very friendly and the rental process was quick and easy. If you make it to Destin, be sure to hit McGuire’s for a good burger!

The house had dirty carpets which were dirty when we moved in. We had our deposit withheld because of someone else's mess. We had 6 witnesses and still no belief in what we said. Dishwasher was old and partially malfunctioned when there. Coffee maker was broken when we got there and they replaced that. House had a very musty smell which caused us to wash every piece of clothing when we got home again. We had to dust when we arrived and we also had to clean the dust off a ceiling fan due to how much there was on the blades before we felt comfortable using it. Tiles floors stayed dirty even after scrubbing them to the extent you white socks turned black by walking on the floors. Filed a complaint with VRBO. No refund from owner and they violated the contract by not having a phone in the house which the web site says there is plus it's in the contract. Had to buy many extra minutes for the cell phone because of no phone. Not happy at all and will not rent via VRBO again.

Owner response: We have been renting for 9 years and this is the first bad experience we have encountered. Our carpets are professionally cleaned 2 times a year. The tile floors are done 3 times a year. Naturally weekly cleanings are done also. When he complained about the coffee maker (9 months old) we had our maintenance person purchase and deliver a new one. Also the dishwasher was repaired during their stay. True there was no home phone. We had it removed after researching showed us that it was not being used. Most of our guests told us they always prefer using their cell phones. The guests prior to this visit did not have any problems. As is our usual practice the following has been completed this Spring: all carpets and tile cleaned, thorough deep cleaning inside and out, new dishwasher installed. Also inside painting is done 2 times a year. This Spring the entire outside has been painted. Please feel free to call if you would like more information regarding this complaint. Thank you.
