"We just completed a week stay at Villa Playa. What a gorgeous home! It was everything it was advertised to be! The beautiful beach is just a few steps away and there are several great places to eat within walking distance. Enjoyed The Crab Trap and it is literally a very short beach walk away! The neighborhood is wonderful. Villa Playa is in a gated community and is safe and secure for the kids to walk or ride bikes. Many different sizes of bikes are provided! Villa Playa is beautifully decorated. Each bedroom is large with its own walk in closet and private bath. All bedrooms have Flat screen TVs. The family areas are big and spacious to enjoy a meal or card game. I am already planning a return trip to Villa Playa!"

"We loved our visit! We are a family of 5 and we traveled to Destin with our best friends who are also a family of 5. The house was a great size for us. It was clean, had plenty of room and was in a beautiful neighborhood. Bob was very responsive and helpful. We will definitely return!"

"Casa de Cielo was the perfect house for our vacation. It is beachfront in the very prestigious Destiny by the Sea neighborhood. If you have never stayed in Destiny by the Sea, this is where you want to be. The house has a large open living and kitchen area with balconies on every floor. The master suite is a retreat of it’s own and I loved waking up to the sight of the beautiful emerald gulf waters. In the master I watched the sunrise every morning from the comfortable sitting room with a 360 degree view. How often do you get to do that? We thoroughly enjoyed the home theatre room. We got to watch the NFL conference championship on the 120 inch screen, which was awesome and we watched several movies in there as well….and it even has a movie theatre style popcorn machine! But my favorite part of the house is the extra large rooftop patio. You could literally have a party up there… it’s huge. There is also a small living room with a large screen tv, a wetbar and half bathroom on the rooftop so no need to go downstairs during your rooftop fun. If that’s not enough, there is also a hot tub big enough for several of your friends to join you in. I’m not much of a hot tub person but watching the sun set with a glass of wine in the hot tub was heavenly. I can’t see me & my family staying anywhere else. I had never used Five Star Beach Properties rental company before but they really are “guest friendly”. They seem to always make every effort to accommodate every requests from time of booking to check out. We will be back!!"

"This was the perfect location for our family get together - Beautiful Beach - Lovely Home - Great Location!
The layout of the home was perfect - great space for "together time" and plenty of space for privacy.
We were looking for something to accommodate my parents who have limited mobility and the elevator worked beautifully. My daughter flew in for the week and the location is very convenient to the Destin-Fort Walton Beach (VPS) airport. Being right on the beach was amazing - we spent lots of time out on the balcony. And if you can pull yourself away from the beach there's lots to do in Destin - great shopping and wonderful restaurants. We would definitely recommend the Diamond of Destiny!"
