"Blue moon was everything that was advertised. It was conveniently located across from the pool. The jetties and beach access were a short walk away. Bikes were available for use. Outdoor space was spacious, comfortable and well appointed with seating and grill. Bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. Home was beautiful inside and out. We enjoyed the front porch in the morning and evening. Community and beach were not over crowded. Beach service with chairs and umbrella included were fantastic. Kids enjoyed ping pong, shuffleboard and basketball goal. Owners were very responsive, helpful and timely. Would love to have a return visit."

"The Sandcastle was more than we had hoped for. Very open and spacious with plenty of room for my family of 10. The proximity of the house to the beach allowed for easy access and the sounds of the waves at night. Also, right around the corner from a wonderful heated pool and jacuzzi. The house was stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen and the Xbox came in handy on a rainy day. We used the grill that was provided and the ice maker in the garage for filling the cooler and going to the beach. The house also has a ping pong table which was a ton of fun. My family didn't want to leave! Destin Pointe, where the home is located, is very close to tons of restaurants and shopping and made it very convenient to get the things we needed. We are already planning a trip back to this home next year."

"This was our first trip to Destin and we couldn't be happier with our stay here. It was just my husband and me, so it was plenty of space for us. It was very comfortable with nice decor. We loved having a view of the pool and ocean from the condo balcony and easily being able to walk to the white sand beaches. It was also nice not having to worry about beach chairs and umbrellas, since the community (and owners) provides that service for guests. The complex was quiet and well maintained. It was a few minutes out of the “main drag” but that made it even better.
There are two pools and a hot tub on the Destin Pointe property, both very nice. We did not grill while we were here, but the grills on the property looked great too (Kitchenaid brand, if you're wondering). There is a covered parking garage under the residences so you get to park your car in shade (my husband loved that).
In regards to beach access, there are actually two beaches—the main beach and then a smaller beach near the Destin Jetties. It's easier to get to the main beach, however, we actually preferred the Jetties. The Jetties were quiet, calmer waters and still had a gorgeous view. You get to see a lot of sailboats passing through, so that was fun. If you're interested in snorkeling, don't bother seeking out any of the attractions because those tourist activities take you right here! Just buy your own mask and snorkel and head to this side of the beach.
Our only complaint—because we're both very into cooking—is that the cooking supplies were a little sub par (think college dorm). Food sticks to every pot and pan so if you're driving to Destin, pack your favorite nonstick skillet. It will make scrambled eggs much easier. Aside from that though,the kitchen equipment was nice and worked well, with plenty of room. It was definitely something we could deal with during the five days we were there, considering most of our time was spent on the beach!
We were here just as kids were going back to school, so it seemed to be much quieter and less crowded which was great (slightly off season). We definitely plan to come back here again."
