Enjoy some ice cream on the porch!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Mar 20, 2015

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!

Excellent! 4.6/5 -

Cute

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great and the house was perfect for our needs. Very convenient to the beach and stores. My only recommendation would be to de-cluter some of the items inside and clean our the closets. We will be back!!

Beautiful Beach Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and very comfortable and cozy. It was close to many amenities within driving distance of a golf cart. Didn't have to use our own vehicle very much. Close to amazing restaurants, shops, grocery store and even a theater. I would definitely recommend this property. We had a great stay and will be looking at it in the future.

Location, Location Location!

  • 5 of 5

Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort is a place we adore and although this was our first stay in this particular Bungalo, we weren't disappointed. Comforts of home, spacious for our group of 6, and across the street from the Bungalos pool = perfect. We added 2 golf carts (highly recommended as this is the most efficient transportation within the resort). We also introduced 2 couples to the area & they adored it as well! Vacation 2019 is already in the planning stages; see you next year!

So so

  • 3 of 5

The location was fabulous and the golf cart was wonderful! The house was sturdy and felt well built (not all do). There were tons of movies, games, and toys for my family. All of that was wonderful! However, the details of the house need some attention and the host could have been nicer.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the bungalow onore than one occasion. My wife and I and my daughter and her family stayed a week this time into June. As usual the bungalow was exceptionally and well stocked with amenities such a internet and cable connections. Six of us stayed in the bungalow which was comfortable and roomy. The closeness of the beach and a pool made the experience even more special. Overall it's a great place to stay and hope to do so again.

Overall great experience

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at the bungalo. Great location. Very tastefully decorated. Everyone slept really well. I think that the kitchen is lacking in some basic cooking needs. I know lots of people don't cook on vacation, but with such a great kitchen, we wanted to! A few different sized glass baking dishes would be a great addition. Also, a couple more cookie sheets. A pair of scissors. A chef's chopping knife. Just a few things to help a cook out. ;-)

Thanks for sharing your lovely home. It was a great week and we really enjoyed the accommodations. My Vacation Haven was also a pleasure to work with.
