  • Wonderful Family Vacation

    "We rented this place for our bi-annual family vacation with my parents, siblings, and all of our children. The location was wonderful. There was more than enough room for our families. There were a total of 4 families, so each of us had a room, then all of the children shared the large room with several beds. Our teenagers stayed at the top in the loft area, and they loved it. There are two close beach accesses, but I suggest going to the Crystal Beach access because the Baracuda Street access in mainly private, whereas the Crystal Beach access has more public space. If you have bikes and can travel with them, I would suggest bringing them. There is a great pathway for walking/riding on. Shopping is all around you, within walking distance. There is a mall type venue just a few blocks north of the house or you could bike/drive to the outlet mall that is on the south end of Scenic US 98. The pool is not very big, but we didn't spend much time in the pool, being so close to the ocean. It was probably the size of a large sauna. No more than 8 people at a time. Walmart, Publix, and Winn Dixie are all close to the house, with Publix being the closest grocery. The prices are higher than they are in Indiana, even at Walmart, so if you have room to pack anything to save on grocery cost, it may be a good idea. The weather was beautiful while we were in town. Most of the time it was in the high 70's/low 80's. The water was still warm, and at night it was warmer in the water. While in town, we enjoyed the Destin Harbor Boardwalk and the pier on Okaloosa Island. We drove 1.5 hours west to Pensacola to check out the Blue Angels practice at the National Aviation Museum. We rented a boat and went out to Crab Island, spent some time riding the pathway, checked out the million dollar walls at McGuires's Irish pub, listened to music at AJ's on the Boardwalk, and enjoyed the crystal clear waters at the beach. I would highly recommend this vacation property for your next visit to Destin, as it was far enough away from the main hotels/condo's of Destin, but close enough to still enjoy all the amenities."

  • Near all the action with beautiful views

    "This is an outstanding place to stay, right in the middle of everything. Food and shopping are within minutes of the property. We stayed here with our children and 1 year old grandson, it was a perfect fit. Whether you are young or old this is a great place. The views are amazing both morning and night. You can just sit on the beach, go grab a bite or shop, it's perfect!!"

  • Amazing house!

    "This house was amazing! Exceptionally clean, beautiful decor, not cluttered, tons of space, and the pool was perfect! The walk to the beach was great! Not far at all and we had our two young children to tote! The wagon that was at the house was a little tykes and in great shape! There was even ramp access to get onto the beach with the wagon! The pool was so nice and the pool toys and floats were all in great shape! We brought many of our own but we were pleasantly suprised that there were noodles and other pool toys. We loved that the yard had a huge privacy fence! The landscaping was beautiful and we were able to take some beautiful family pictures one night before dinner. This house was def the prettiest and nicest house on the block! The wrap around porches were wonderful! The kitchen had lots of plates, bowls, cups, pots, pans etc so that was great too! We also liked the full laundry room and extra closet to store stuff in, with our two young kids, my mom, sister, brother in law and his girlfriend we had lots of stuff and this house had lots of space to spread out! The bedrooms were also spacious and the bathrooms were all clean and had ample storage. There is a ton to do in this area also, from the beach and water activities to shopping at the two outdoor malls, there is also boardwalk area that had tons for kids and adults, there is a waterpark, mini golf, tons of golf courses and of course restaurants galore! Walmart, target and publix are all very close as well! We don't have a single complaint! The owners answered any and all questions we had before and during our trip, they were extremely friendly and you can tell they take incredible care of their home! We will be back for sure!"
