Nice area. Beautiful house and property that is not being cleaned and managed well.

  • 3 of 5

This house is so pretty but needs to be better taken care of by cleaning, maintenance crew. When we walked into main house we could see right away empty bottles of water under furniture and pieces of food on window sill in dining area. In the pool house there were ants in kitchen area. We had donuts in a package that were taken over by ants during our stay. We stored food in pool house in microwave to avoid ants. We also found half eaten ice cream in pool house freezer, and a broken lamp on floor. Our pool was obviously very cloudy and there were pool toys from previous renters that had not been cleaned up. We did call about pool and pool toys and trash. When maintenance man came he was very rude to my children and me about cleaning up back yard. When the pool guy came next day he came in back yard and folded his arms and told us it was sunscreen and we needed to understand the pool had people in it all the time. The return jets in the pool were not always working and he was told about that also. He was very rude and came and shocked the pool the next morning at our request which magically made the pool clear and sunblock fade away. This was a very disappointing experience.

Ok....served it’s purpose

  • 3 of 5

Overall this house was just O.K. The night we checked in we immediately noticed the yard needed to be was high enough that you couldn’t comfortably sit outside in the back yard. Another issue was that in the pool house there was ants all over the counters and also some found in the beds...we had an infant staying in there so it was an issue. Also, the pool light was out which made swimming in the evening not so fun. I called the night of bc there was sand in some of the bunk beds as if the bedding hadn’t been changed and went over all the things mentioned above. They were addressed like this. New sheets were brought by that night for us to out on beds, the pool light, and yard mowed came and got done two days before we checked out so basically our whole stay we dealt with this. Also, an exterminator came and sprayed for ants on the 4th day we were there but needless to say it did not get rid of them so my in laws staying in the pool house had to deal with them the whole stay. The worst thing is the beach right up the road that is really a not so public beach. Be prepared to rent umbrellas and chairs rather than bring your own bc your will only have about 20 yards of space to set it up at along with the 100 s of other ppl there. This is our 4th year in a row to come to Destin and stay in this area and the beaches have become to commercialized. Needless to say we will not be renting this house again it coming back to this area.

5 Bed 5 Bath Space we needed

  • 3 of 5

This home seems to be in the perfect location. The access traveling into the home for us was great come across the bridge, go one street and there she is. The view of the ocean is wonderful from the third floor, the neighborhood the home is in is great, rentals and private homes. However, the home needed a deep cleaning. The bathrooms, linens and beds are all satisfactory. We were there on the busy season, but the cleaning company could at least get the sand off the floors and mop. We had minor repairs that needed done during our stay the Agency was called and the issues promptly taken care of that was wonderful. The internet service horrific, we had a worker and he could only do his work at the kitchen table. If you have anyone with allergies, please ask that they send the mowers early morning or evening, they came at 1 pm while we were all in the pool. Think about it grass in the pool, and a wheezing child. Not a good day. As for the beach it is a nice walk, if you want to play on the beach do not access the first beach. Walk a little further down the street and access the next public access much more room to play, and spread out. The Rental agency was great to deal with, sent lots of information, check in was smooth. Sum it up you are on vacation, place to play, sleep and eat. You make of it what you make of it. We had a great time.

Great area, wonderful house, nice location.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the area, it was away from the craziness of SB. We would have loved a heated pool though. On the house details it said heated pool, but when we got there they asked for an up charge. The house needed supplies to clean the pool also, we were glad to do it, but no skimmer or pool vacuum. Over all, great place for a beautiful vacation.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything went well. Had to call maintenance for a stuck door and some missing rods needed to close the Venetian blinds, but they were very quick in responding. Everything was in good condition. Beach is 1/2 a block away which was perfect and grocery store is a walkable distance as well (6 blocks?). They were also very accomodating with our special requests, such as early check in/late check out. Very professional.
