Guestbook comments from the owner


On behalf of my whole family, we wanted to thank you. Your house is beautiful and it served our needs perfectly. I really appreciated how quickly you fixed the small plumbing problem The neighborhood and pool are very nice and well maintained. We got lucky and had really great weather so the beach was perfect. I would definitely recommend your home to other people.

Thank you again,

Best Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was perfect for my family, it was clean, well equipped, close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. We had everything we needed to be comfortable like home away from home. Michele is very helpful and great to work with; we will be back next year.

Wonderful location but I would rent one of the other houses in the neighborhood

  • 2 of 5

Our vacation at Miramar Beach was wonderful....clear water, white sand. The location is great but almost every house in the cul-de-sac is also for rent. The property was mediocre. Mismatched dinnerware with few bowls. Mismatched flatware with only 4 teaspoons. Don't worry, there's five corkscrews if you need them. The knives were few and one had a broken handle.The kitchen is to be cleaned before leaving, but no cleaners there. The cabinets need to have outdated condiments/spices thrown out. Mold on bathroom shower curtain. Food from previous tenants on dining room floor and pantry floor. No broom or dustpan. Vacuum cleaner was insanely noisy and didn't do a good job. Why would you have a vacuum that needs bags instead of a bagless vacuum in a rental? Window screens are missing or torn. Exterior door knobs and deadbolts were hard to operate. Food and trash under the couch cushions. The sheets and pillow cases are washed but I doubt the comforters or mattress covers are washed every stay (most of the beds did not even have mattress covers). I probably would not have left a review (good or bad) if not for the owner. I was informed that the living area rug was ruined with stains and I would be charged $200. I may have thought it was possible and let her keep the money, but her attitude in the message (and the condition of the house) made me question everyone staying at the house. Nothing was spilt on the rug. If you look at the picture on the VRBO site, you can see the stains in the rug. I have to wonder how many times that rug has been "replaced". I'm stuck paying for a brand new rug instead of the depreciated price of the old rug. ( I wish auto insurance worked that way.) I have asked for receipts for the original rug and the new rug, but I have received neither. If you rent this house, be sure to take before and after pics of everything.

Owner's Response: "I was very disappointed that I had to withhold a portion of your damage deposit. Obviously, you are too. However, the damage was extensive, and what I withheld only covered a portion of my final cost."but as a owner who wants everyone to enjoy my home as if it was there's ... damages that occurred while you were there needed to be repaired for my next guests who will want to experience a wonderful time"

Great vacation house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was in clean, comfortable and close to the beach.

The beds and bathrooms were so clean and well stocked with quality towels.

The kitchen had plenty of dishes, utensils and room for our large group. The washer and dryer were put to great use throughout the week. The other cottages were full but the neighborhood was quiet and felt very safe.

We also had plenty of room to park 3 large vehicles.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 different families in the house and the rooms worked out perfectly. This was my first time to Destin and it was amazing! We loved the private beach access, the walk was a little longer than anticipated as my husband is disabled so it was a bit of a hull for him. Over all the house was wonderful!

It was ok for the price and accommodating to a large group

  • 3 of 5

I did not like the fact that the kitchen was on the second floor. It was small and felt like all the rooms were cramped together. However, for the price and location it was nice and accommodating to our large family group. I don't think we will stay here again, but it was alright for this trip.

As you can see from my other __40__ reviews, my other guests have had a wonderful experience. I always appreciate positive and negative remarks as it makes me a better host".
