Beach Blessing- Poor experience

  • 2 of 5

Great house in a great complex. However, the house has several general maintainance issues. Some example.....The pool was dirty and had sand in it at check in. Reported this and it was cleaned the next day. At check in the upstairs bedroom the faucet at the tub had a steady drip. Reported this and it was tighten-but still dripped, all the vacumn cleaners did not work, and their was no broom in the house. Half way during our stay the water was cut off to the house by the water company for non payment of water bill. Took 5 hours to get this corrected and to have water turned back on. For the price we paid for the house this is an unacceptable issue to deal with. Because of this issue we will not stay at this house again, but we do plan to return to Destiny by the Sea.

Amazing family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This house is outstanding. Very spacious and clean and well-pointed home with the added fun of a private pool and pool table. The pool does not get a lot of direct sunlight (between about 11am and 1pm) which is great if you have small children and want to keep them protected from the sun some during the day. The walk to the beach is very easy (we made it no problem every day with a 3 and 5 year old). The neighborhood is gated with very little to no traffic, so very safe for families. The beach is private so there's plenty of room to play and spread out, even during the busiest seasons. It's a nice departure from the dense crowds of Destin's public beaches. I would definitely recommend the beach chair service - it made things so much easier for us! There are a couple restaurants within walking distance of the property, and the main parts of Destin with entertainment and restaurants is a very short and easy drive away. We were highly satisfied with our stay and would absolutely recommend to families or adult groups.

Great Vacation at Beach Blessing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation week at Beach Blessing in October. The house is gorgeous and the neighborhood is fabulous! Our four year old grand-daughter, Ella, said it was a princess house! The elevator was very handy! The house was clean, plenty of towels, and the beds were comfortable. The two master suites were big and very nice. I would suggest that they remove the pool table and make that area a den for the children with sofas and television. The adults would gather in the main den and kitchen but the kids just didn't have an area of their own. The Five Star staff were very attentive, friendly and accommodating. I can't say enough about Shawna J. She was great to work with and you can count on her to do what she says she will do. That means a lot!

Great location

  • 3 of 5

My family just returned from Beach Blessing. I think you don't see a lot of reviews because people are conflicted about writing one. There are many pros, yet many opportunities for improvement.


Working with Five Star was very easy. As other reviews noted, they are responsive and customer service oriented. No issues with them whatsoever. Every person we dealt with was very responsive.

Location, location, location. Home is in an awesome location. Although the only beach view is from the third floor because of being blocked by other homes, the beach is still only steps away.

Private pool. Our family enjoyed having a pool at the home for those days that you just don't want to deal with the sand. It is not huge, but is large enough and always had the afternoon shade!

Layout of home. With 3 floors, bedrooms on each level, pool table on first floor, the house was very usable for a large family.

Responsiveness of maintenance staff: Shout out to Mike who came to address an issue. Very professional, courteous, and efficient.

Areas for improvement: Don't want to be really negative, but for the amount of money to rent the home we did expect a bit higher quality in the following areas:

Furnishings: Most of the furniture is beyond tired. Family room sofa and chairs and some bedroom furniture is barely above acceptable. Worn, torn, minimally clean. We realize it's a vacation rental, so it is difficult to maintain a high quality I am sure. The rugs in the home were vacuumed for sure, but are so old and dirty that they just need to be thrown away!

TV's: Didn't come to watch a lot of TV, but on rainy days and late at night it is nice to have. For a few hundred dollars you can have nice (larger) flat screens in each room. Most TV's in the home were tiny, some weren't even flat screen they were so old, and even the one in the family room was way too small for the room. Also, not being from the area, some kind of channel guide would be nice.

General cleanliness: Patio furniture and cushions were simply nasty. Need a different type of cushion to work in the Florida rain. Not sure if it was just plain dirty or if it was mold, but was not inviting for sitting. Slats in blinds were broken all over the house. Again, I'm sure it's difficult being a rental property, but the summer rental income each week should allow for some minor upkeep.

Again, this may sound negative, but isn't meant to be. We really did have a great time!

Great time at Beach Blessing!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Beach Blessing for the Month of January, and had a wonderful time! The home is in a great location, has a good layout, is well insulated for noise and weather. It has a perfect pool/spa combo, and is well stocked with all you would need for a great vacation.

Five Star Beach Rentals was wonderful to work with, and made us feel very welcome. As with ANY vacation rental, you will experience the occasional loose shower handle, burned out light bulbs, etc. Five Star was PROFESSIONAL, courteous, and had someone out to fix it immediately. They showed concern for our privacy and worked with our schedule. I can't give them enough praise on their response. Shawna J. Is the BEST!

The home beds were very comfortable, and the home was clean. There were abundant clean, white towels for all the rooms and bathrooms. We opted to heat the pool/spa, which was heated to a perfect 90 degrees. The pool guy came out once a week, which we really appreciated.

We had a very nice vacation in this beautiful home...:)

Beach Blessing

  • 5 of 5

I have been spending my summer vacations in Destin since '93 and this was by far my best experience to date. The entire Five Star staff were attentive, friendly and beyond courteous. Consummate professionals. Shawna was most accommodating and is a huge asset to Five Star. The house was absolutely gorgeous and impeccably maintained. My beach wedding and the reception at the house were nothing short of perfect. I give Five Star Beach Properties and Shawna Jacoby the highest recommendation possible. Five stars for sure! DK
