                        This house is in a beautiful community. The house itself is very nice and a good size for a family. It is well equipped and there is little that you will need for your stay. Although our overall assesment is average, this is due to the quality of the living room furniture and master bedroom mattress. If you have back issues, this home may not be for you. For most people, the furniture may be acceptable, but for our needs, it was not. My wife has had back surgery and is prone to back problems. I recognize that this is a rental property and that a landlord needs to make a profit. However, i believe that this home is overdue for at least new living room furniture. This could be a great property with a little investment and would rate a definate recommendation On a more positive note, the property managers that look after this home, are GREAT. They are Kathy and Mike are very helpfull and responsive to any questions or issues. They made our stay more pleaseant.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children.

                        The cottage was very warm and inviting. It was what we wanted, being close to the beach and convenient to shopping, dining, and sight seeing. This was my first time staying in a vacation rental by owner and I was a little inconvenienced that there were no basic spices or coffee for one morning. Fortunately we arrived before the stores closed and was able to get what we needed for the next morning,

                        We have been to Destin several times and have stayed in this particular complex twice, although this was our first year for the beachcomber. We came with my extended family and this house was perfect for our needs. I would highly recommend this house and would definitely stay again. The beach and pool are a short walk, which is great with small children. I like to run as well, and the biking/walking/running path on 98 is perfect.
