Enjoy some ice cream on the porch! 03/20/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


I just had a fantastic trip to Destin, Florida! I stayed at the Fins and Family Bungalo at the Sandestin Resort, and it was amazing.

The bungalow itself was perfect for the family I travelled with. It was two stories, three bedrooms, with a screened in front porch. The house was nicely stocked with comfy sheets, fluffy towels, amazing beds, a fully equipped kitchen (including an ice cream maker,) games, books, beach chairs, bikes, a grill, cable TV, a computer with internet access, wifi, a washer and dryer, a travel crib, and more. It had everything you could possibly need for a wonderful trip with kids.

The bungalow’s location was also perfect. It’s in the Sandestin Resort, a large resort with all kinds of fun things to do. The bungalow is right across the street from a wonderful swimming pool. There’s a free shuttle that takes you to all areas of the resort, including the beach, a high end shopping center, and the Baytowne Wharf area with wonderful restaurants, shops, and activities. The young girls I was travelling with loved Baytowne Wharf almost as much as the beach!

The bungalow comes with access to Sandestin’s private beach, which was spectacular. But it’s also a short drive to wonderful, less urban and more rural beaches down Highway 30A.

I had a terrific time at the Fins and Family Bungalo, and I hope to make it an annual trip. I highly recommend it!
