Guestbook comments from the owner


We really enjoyed your home and hospitality. Everything was perfect and we will definitely be contacting you on our next trip to Destin. The maps and suggestions you sent to us were great. Everyone had a great time and loved your beautiful home. We loved Pompano Joe's and The Surf Hut but what we loved most was having a grill for our use. We grilled out about every day. The pictures definitely don't do you home justice.

Perfect House with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at Martins Nest! The house is beautiful and the pool was awesome! Stocked with everything you need!! We loved having beach chairs and umbrellas there so we didn't have to put up our huge canopy! Plenty of room for a family! Would definitely rent here again! Thanks!

Amazing Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We booked Martin's Nest for our family and we were so very pleased when we walked through the doors. Everything about our home away from home was amazing. The bedrooms and kitchen were just wonderful as well as the backyard and amazing pool. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house for a week! The pool was very nice, the kitchen had all the amenities that we needed, the appliances were brand new and the walk to the beach was easy! With 4 adults and 4 kids under 7, the house was able to accommodate all of us to make it the best vacation! Highly recommend! David was super easy to work with as well!

Awesome house with plenty of amenities. Accommodated our party of 10 nicely. David checked on us several times during the week through text. Pool was nice. Really glad it was a charcoal grill rather than gas. I don't mind the clean up in exchange for better tasting steaks. Only a 10 minute walk max from the beach but there is a decent amount of parking if you want to drive. Hope to be able to come back one day.

Martin's Nest=Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot begin to find the words for how much we enjoyed our stay. The house to start with is very nice. The first thing I noticed was a very well maintained yard. That goes a long ways with me. When we walked in, we were blown away. There was so much room. We knew we made the right choice. We had 10 people including 6 adults and 2 teenagers, but we never felt like we were on top of each other. The beds were very comfortable! The only negative about the beds was that we couldn't take the mattress from the Master Suite home! To be honest, you could probably sleep about 12 people. There were 3 aero beds. 2 full, 1 twin. We loved the kitchen! Plenty of space in the big Fridge! The cabinet space is a little limited, but then again, we bought a lot of food. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't provided. The other big plus for me was cleanliness! I always check for bed bugs, mildew, etc. There was none of that. Honestly, had we not read the guest book, we wouldn't have been able to tell someone stayed there before! One thing to note, the house was stocked with plenty of towels! Don't waste luggage space bringing any. One bit of advice, bring extra toilet paper. That was the only thing we didn't think about. Everything else was there. Even bodywash. The pool was very refreshing. We spent a lot of time in there. Even, with the beach within walking distance, the pool felt more refreshing. There are plenty of beach towels, chairs, an umbrella, etc. This stay was truly relaxing. We actually felt like we were on vacation. A lot of that had to do with the house. I have tried to find a negative, but can't.

I'll end with some notes:

1. Use caution around the pool. The surface can get a little slick.

2. Take a minute to relax on the balconies

3. IF YOU DON'T DO ANYTHING ELSE...go to The Back Porch Restaraunt! Get some Firecracker Shrimp! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY EATING AT ANY OTHER RESTAURANTS! Especially Joe's Crabshack!

Hope this review helps you make a good decision to stay at Martin's Nest. Thanks again, David, for your hospitality.
