Luxury home close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning home. In town for a family wedding. This home is designed so well that we had plenty of room for our extended family. View from top floor with a cup of coffee made the day start off extra special. House is beautifully furnished and very comfortable.

Alicia was extremely accessible with any questions or concerns. She made the process a breeze and easy. Highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a beach stay in a luxury home.

House nice, community variable

  • 3 of 5

Diamond Paradise was clean and spacious, very nice. Alicia, the house manager, was very helpful and responsive. Overall, our stay was as expected. There are a few things that keep me from rating this home as 5 stars. The backyard neighbors home is literally falling apart, with large cracks in the stucco siding falling off of the house and a pool desperately in need of maintenance. The variability of property maintenance in Destiny by the Sea risks bringing the whole community down, which would be a shame for owners like those of Diamond Paradise who are maintaining high standards.

The only complaints that I have about Diamond Paradise itself is that for the money paid to stay there, they could probably afford tiny bottles of shampoo/conditioner/body wash and a couple of blow dryers. Otherwise, the home has everything needed for a great vacation.

Beautiful property and neighborhood - we had a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible house. 3 stories with 5 bedrooms each with a private bath. Elevator in the house was a plus for taking luggage to 3rd floor bedrooms. We had 5 couples down for New Years weekend and had plenty of room for all. Phenomenal open great room/kitchen on 2nd floor was very roomy and a great gathering spot.

Things to be aware of:

1. Parking is very limited for this size house. We were able to squeeze 2 cars in the garage, and 2 more in the driveway. You are ticketed for parking on the street, so our 5th car had to be parked at the community pool a block or so away. This worked Ok for us over New Years, but if parking is not available at the community poll, we were told that we would have to find our own parking off property ( out of the neighborhood) for extra vehicles. This could be an issue in peak season.

2. The house has a beautiful pool, but no hot tub. Beacause a hot tub was advertised, we planned to use it. We later realized that the hot tub is actually at the community pool, so we never did got her to use it.

Overall, we had a great stay and the owners were great people to work with.

Owner's Response: Tommy, We enjoyed having you guys stay with us for New Years. So very glad you had a great time! We have a large family and understand the challenge with family comes down. The HOA does allow street parking during the day but not overnight. I’m glad everything worked out for your group. I’m so sorry for any mis communication concerning a hot tub. The small tub connected to our pool is the heating element that pours the heated water into the big pool. We do enjoy going to the community pool. Their hot tub is enjoyable. I hope you enjoyed the heated pool during your stay. I wanted to be sure and include that for you at no charge for any inconvenience to not having a hot tub when you thought we did. You guys are welcome back anytime! Let me know if there is anything I can do to make your stay enjoyable. Alicia Harrison.

Best Rental in Destiny by the Sea! Truly Paradise! This will be our future rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Destiny by the Sea since 2010. This is by far the very best home we have rented! You will not be disappointed! The pictures don't begin to describe this luxury home. From opening the front door all the way to the third floor you will be so happy you chose this home. A/C units, refrigerator, microwave, sink on each floor. Bathrooms for each bedroom. Two laundry rooms. Balconies on 2nd and 3rd floors. A fully equipped kitchen with 2 ovens, 6 burner stove, sub-zero refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, and counter space galore! Wifi worked great. When you sit on 2nd floor balcony it is truly paradise. You can see the water but mostly you can hear the waves lapping the beach. It is heaven on earth. We rented the limo golf cart and rode all around the property. The grandchildren loved it! It was well worth the money spent! But walk to the beach access is easy and not far. You really do not need the golf cart but it sure was fun to have. Rent umbrella and chairs for the week and you are set! After a long day at the beach you can refresh in your own private swimming pool. We had 4 generations - myself and my husband, my mom and dad, my three daughters and their other halves, and four grandchildren ages 11, 9, 2, and 2 months. Everyone had plenty of space to spread out. The Master Suite is huge and you will be surprised with the sitting area as it is inside the master but a whole room in itself! it also has a wrap around porch. I just can't say enough good about this house. Dealing with Alicia was great as she was there to answer any questions, etc even late. It was nice knowing she was taking care to make sure we were comfortable and happy. To finalize we have stayed in some beautiful homes in Destiny by the Sea but each year have had some issues - one said private pool but in reality it was so small it could have been a wading pool, one year we had roaches all over the house, last year the freezer was out and the air was climate controlled and not working properly and calls to the owner went unanswered until our drive home - you can't always trust pictures and descriptions. You must ask questions because you are paying a lot for a nice vacation. We had rented another prop this year - deposit was placed in 2015. Home sold and about a month prior to our dates we were notified that the owner wanted the property for our week. We happened upon this home and it way exceeded our expectations!! TRULY PARADISE!

We just returned from a week long stay in this beauty and oh my goodness, PARADISE!!! House was beautifully maintained and spotless when we arrived. It's right across the street from the beach, has beautiful views from the balconies and just the perfect gulf breeze. Beach access was just down the street, which was a beautiful walk in itself! The private pool was the perfect size, provided sun and shade throughout the day and was a definite bonus along with the neighborhood pool, which is huge, gorgeous and a short walk down the street. Perfect house layout with everything exactly where you need it to be. The master suite is huge and the bathroom is stunning! Property manager was prompt in returning calls and very sweet to work with. Can not wait to return to Diamond Paradise!
