"The Sandcastle was the perfect house for our two-family group! We had a group of 6 adults and 5 kids and the accommodations were great. Plenty of beds/bedrooms, plenty of bathroom space, laundry room and nice living space and kitchen with everything you would need for a week-long stay.
It's a beautiful, quiet gated neighborhood just a short walk to two beach access points. The community pool was also a nice addition to rinse off before heading back to the house from the beach. The house also has a garage under the house that closes up (screened walls and doors so the breeze can get through) with a ping-pong table and ice maker. The kids spent quite a bit of time down there playing with their beach finds and sidewalk chalk and we didn't have to worry about them. So nice!
My only negative comments would be regarding the living room furniture - time for some new couches. They were peeling and ripped in several spots. Also, the creaky headboard in the smaller master bedroom was annoying. When you pay for a luxury beach house, you expect near-perfect furniture.
We will definitely consider renting the Sandcastle again!"

"This home is superb!! Our family enjoyed the home, pool and beach. Wonderful new Tram to pick us up at our front door and transport us to th beach. Island Blue makes you feel at home. We grilled and used the pool while cooking. Family games were played nightly. Great restaurants accessible from this home! No worries with gated community. Owners very easy to work with. Highly recommend."

"My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Destin Pointe. The location is great with the Gulf just a short walk away and the jetty beach also a short walk through the dunes. I really like the view. It was always interesting watching the boats come and go from the harbor. The included beach chair setup is a plus. We didn't know until near the end of our stay that we could catch the Emerald Grande shuttle over to Harbor Walk. We used it once but would have used it more if we knew. The unit itself was a little dated and tired, and could have used some more kitchen stuff, but we got by okay. It was clean and everything worked so no major complaint. I like the easy Southern Vacation Rental check in and out. We have stayed in many condos on the beach over the years and this was a good one. I would rent it again unless I can find one a little more updated and more nicely furnished."

"We came for business and the Coconut Cottage couldn't have been more perfect! We absolutely loved the house, the beach was gorgeous, and the water taxi you can take across to the harbor walk was perfect!
It's a bit far removed so I'd definitely suggest renting some bikes or a car.
Would definitely stay there again!"
