Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to have the whole family spend Christmas together under one roof. Plenty of room for 10 adults and 6 children, with room to spread out as well as be together. Wrap-around balcony, a pool, plenty of parking, table-seating outdoors for the whole tribe, plus space inside for plenty of meals together. All kitchen appliances, laundry, and 4 bathrooms make it great for families. Even TVs in all the rooms. Things that impressed me most however, are things you might not expect. (1) Everything was in good repair and in good working order.

(2) Place was clean and not cluttered.

(3) Separate first and second floor HVAC makes a big difference in comfort.

(4) All the beds were exceptionally comfortable--no, I didn't try them all but asked everyone's opinion.

(5) Location is awesome: convenient beach access, quiet neighborhood, beautiful walking and running spaces, handy ice cream shop, and shopping areas, groceries, etc. within a couple miles, and plenty of rainy day options within a few miles.

(6) There were even some reading nooks with good lighting inside.

(7) Even over Christmas the weather was nice enough to play on the beach, and the water wasn't too cold for some to swim.

(8) Linda Hodges was very helpful and everything worked out without stress.

We would definitely choose this place again!

Looking forward to visiting again!

My group of 15 and I came here for the first time this August. The house is amazing! The beach themed decor made the house more beautiful and enjoyable for us. They were even nice enough to provide us with swimming toys/gear in the trunk by the outside sitting area. I was also impressed by the 2nd kitchen upstairs (which was filled with all sorts of dishes and pans for us to use).The house is also very close to the beach and that made traveling easier for us. My family and friends hope to come back here next time!

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week in this lovely house! We enjoyed this house last year also...but were amazed when we walked in and found it had all been freshly painted with new fur its and pictures and decor...really looks great! We love the fact that with 7 bedrooms we can all have our own space and with the two living areas and pool and porch, we can also get together and hang out easily! We also enjoy the location of the house...just a short walk to the beach and a short drive to Baytown Wharf where we like to go in the evenings for the entertainment! We will definitely be back again!!

The "D" of Destin

  • 5 of 5

An incredible place at an incredible price! Two stories of private luxury with a five minute walk to the beach. Dropped everyone at the beach with all equipment and alcohol, went back and parked the vehicle, and walked back to the beach just as the drinks were being served! Great relaxing at the pool in the evening with the pit going!

Great Place for family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we hoped for and more. Close to beach and close to everything you need. We had a large multi family of 13 and it was perfect. A true 5 star home. Next trip to Destin we will rent this home again!
