                        This was our second year renting this excellent house. We came back becuase not only is the house excellent, but also the owners are wonderful to work with. You feel at home when you walk in. The house was very clean and well maintained. No traffic to worry about as Gulfside Cottages is on a totally contained, no outlet road. A Paradise Hotel is near the end of the road. You are very close to the walkway that leads to the beach. The VRBO listing is accurate and the photos are current. You can talk with the owners before you rent and they are very upfront with their answers to your questions. After you rent and even while in the house, you can talk with them and ask questions. We would certainly recommend this house. We will be back next year!

                        This being our first experience renting a beach house, I must admit I was nervous about what we would end up with. I have to say we couldn't have been more pleased! Our family stayed here for a week and found ourselves continually saying "What a great house!" and "Isn't this location perfect!" and "I am so glad we did this!" This house was perfectly located between the beach and pool. It slept our 6 adults and 8 kids and we never felt crowded. Working with Michelle was great and easy. I highly recommend this property to anyone. In fact, we may do this again also....but maybe without so many kids next time! :)

                        I thought long and hard about if I wanted to leave a comment here due to the fact that I did not want people to know about this gem in Destin. My family returned from our vacation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home! When we got back they all wanted to head right back. The house is spacious and in a great location - one block from the pool and a few yards to the beach access path. The house was clean, well-maintained, and catered well to the adults and kid. Its close to grocery stores and shops and golf courses. All the convenience in one area. We look forward to a return stay next year. Michele was great and so easy to work with which made it a plus.

                        My family just returned from our vacation and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home! The location can't be beat- one block from the pool and 30 yards to the beach access path. There was a slight hiccup with the clean-up crew at check in and the owner IMMEDIATELY addressed the issue, even sending over her property manager to guarantee that the problem was fully resolved. Thank you! The house was clean, well-maintained, and had plenty of room for six adults and three children under the age of five. The kids really enjoyed all of the beach toys in the closet! Also, the house is in a quiet and clean private community. Another plus- Winn Dixie is less than half a mile away. We would gladly return to the house and would recommend the property to family and friends!

                        13 Family members (age 21-56) convened for picture-perfect weather, one of the world's finest beaches, and an ideally located beach house which was clean, comfortable, and an excellent value. We considered ourselves fortunate to rent a home this close to the beach; and were delighted that the beach was sparsely populated compared to neighboring developments. The kitchen was well-appointed for a family of foodies. We even baked cookies one evening. Michele Baloh is a superb attentive landlord- we had only one real hiccup- the A/C was not cooling when we returned from the beach one evening. What may have been a disaster, turned out to be a minimal nusiance, as Michele had a repair man there within the hour and we had cold air again in 10 minutes! We highly recommend not only this property, but also the specific location, and most certainly the concern and follow through of the owner. I would not hesitate to return to this home again and again.

                        From the very start the owner was very helpful with any enquiry and quick to repond. We only had a couple of minor issues, but they were immediately addressed and fixed by the maintenance crew. The absolute best part of this rental was how it was only a 2 minute or less walk to the beach. It is on the cul-de-sac at the end of the complex and closest to the beach so if you forgot something, you could quickly run back and get it. We drove in from Houston and if the weather had been nice all week, we probably wouldn't have moved the car once we got there. You could walk to Winn Dixie or the Silver Sands Outlet mall, as well. We met another family who came from North Carolina and this was the perfect size house for 4 adults and 4 kids, 8 & under. We didn't even use one queen room. There were plenty of beach toys and beach chairs as well, so no need to bring any. The pool was also heated which was a plus. We had an awesome time and would recommend it to anyone.

                        We had a group of 14 ranging in age from 2 to 82 stay for a week. Everything we needed was there. We especially liked the location, close to the beach path and the pool. The grocery store was very close which was convenient as we cooked many of our meals. Even with college spring breakers the home was quiet at night. We really appreciated the sand toys and beach chairs in the storage room!

                        This house was the perfect place for our family to stay. The pictures from the website did not do this place justice. We were expecting a nice place but got a fantastic place. The owners provide beach toys and chairs which was a major plus for us. There was plenty of room!!! Another major plus was the washer and dryer. Traveling from Texas, we were short on car space so the washer and dryer made it easy for us to pack light. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils, pots and pans you would need to cook. The location is perfect. The grocery store and drug store are within 5 minutes of the house. During our stay, there was one day in which it was raining. The outlet mall is right across the street which gave us something to do. This is a wonderful place to stay and we look forward to renting this house for our future visits to Destin.
