Far offshore, trollers can find white and blue marlin, wahoo, and sailfish.

Excellent home, Excellent beaches!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Destin, and we were not disappointed. Crystal Beach was breathtaking with it's greenish-blue clear waters and powdery white sand. We have never seen a more beautiful beach, even in Sanibel or the Caribbean.

This home also did not let us down. Kool Beanz was clean, comfortable, and located close to the beach as well as other attractions (we really enjoyed the Gulf Breeze Zoo where you can feed the giraffes and other animals). The two block walk to the beach was easy on the sidewalks even with six kids. Comfort and quality of beds is of utmost importance to us as we've gotten older, and the king sized beds in the home are pillow top and do not sag. The pictures do not show all of the lovely details of the home, such as the glamour master bath, the walk-in master closet that could have a crib or pack-n-play, and the huge laundry room which is spacious enough to dump wet towels and not have people trip over them as they are waiting to go in the washer. The pinball machine was a bonus - lots of time spent having tournaments!

The pool at Kool Beanz is larger than other private pools in other homes we've stayed in. We had no problem with all nine of us being in the pool at one time, and the kids could play monkey in the middle or PIG with the soccer ball without worrying about bothering other people if we only had access to a community pool. The pool is also fully secluded on all four sides. Many of the homes we passed while walking to the beach had pools that we totally exposed to the sidewalks or bike path. The privacy of the Kool Beanz pool was very much appreciated.

Marc was great to rent from and is an excellent landlord/owner. He was always readily available when we needed help. We are already booking our trip for next year!

New Years Spark

  • 5 of 5

MY family of 12 stayed in this large spacious home. It was plenty of space downstairs and upstairs with nice floors and personal art throughout the home. Large bedrooms and bathrooms with lots of beds, and still space in each room. Cabana house nice if you need some quiet space. Great location near the beach. Unfortunately, the kitchen and cabana were not clean at all. Several bedroom furniture items had food, dust, sand, etc behind them. I cleaned the kitchen and cabana, but the mops were really too dirty to try and use on the kitchen and cabana floors.

Owner's Response: I wish to thank my renter for the 5 star review and would like to respond …. This was the first time and hopefully the last time this ever happens. Respectfully, the group staying at the house were very nice and personable. In the future if you, the renter, ever have any special needs or requests please don’t hesitate to contact me. In this instance we would have had housekeeping take care of things instead of the renter spending vacation time cleaning. Be that as it may, I did reach out and offered compensation. I will always try to be as accommodating as possible to our guests needs. For instance the lead group who were checking in on day 1 requested that some of their group wanted to stay in the cabana and even though there were only 9 staying in a house that sleeps 16. I opened the cabana up (first time since October)for them. I even purchased room heater since there was a cold snap in progress. Also, there was a good chance there were dust bunnies under or behind furniture in the cabana. No excuses, but this was my last rental of the 2017 season. We shut things down January and February and do our repairs, deep cleaning, home improvements, and upgrades during that time slot. Sometimes things may go awry but it’s how you stand tall, respond, and learn from your experiences. Thank you, M

Best vacation ever!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year coming to Kool Beanz for our yearly family vacation. Everytime we walk thru the front door, we say "We are home." Marc is always so nice and pleasant. Any problems and he is on it. Very easy to work with and so laid back. We have enjoyed his company for dinner before and that has made our vacation just that more special. A lot of love and care goes into the up keep of the house and it shows. The pinball machine is always a hit. Btw, 117, 340 is the score to beat for this year. The kitchen is spacious and great to cook in. Great place to hang with your family. Had so much fun in our heated pool playing water volleyball. Great location. 5 minute walk to beach and every store you can think of to shop. It almost feels like you are at your own private resort. The pictures do this house no justice. We could not imagine going a year without coming to Destin and coming home to Kool Beanz. I would recommend this house to Anyone and I know it would not let me down. We look forward to "coming home" next year.

Wonderful and relaxing ...

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing !! A very comfortable "home". 11 people ranging in age from 15 months to 50 somethings stayed a week and never once lacked for space. The most over used question the entire week .... "Where are you?" With teens and little ones that's a good thing ! The pinball marchine was hit. The pool is situated so that those who want sun can, those that want to be protected from the sun but still part of the group are able to do that as well. Marc is a dream to work with and very accommodating. The beach is close enough a couple of our group took their coffee and walked to the beach to watch the sunrise in the morning. Kitchen is well stocked to cook meals for a large group. My only recommendation would be to update the pots and pans. They are dated and worn. All the beds were comfortable. Plenty of bedding and towels. I can not stress enough the level of comfort. It truly feel like walking into your own home not a rental property. Thank you Marc for your southern hospitality. You are a true gentleman

Another great year

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a great time staying in your house for the week. One of our favorite things is the private pool, not just for the kids but the adults as well. This year was especially difficult due to the loss of my brother in law last year but with us being in that house it made it a little easier knowing how much he loved the beach. Thanks again for your hospitality and the use of your home! Have a great summer!

Destin is a city located in Okaloosa County, Florida. It is a principal city of the Fort Walton Beach-Crestview-Destin, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Located on Florida's Emerald Coast, Destin is known for its white beaches and emerald green waters. Originating as a small fishing village, it is now a popular tourist destination – according to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, over 80 percent of the Emerald Coast's 4.5 million visitors each year visit Destin. The city styles itself "The World's Luckiest Fishing Village", and claims to have the largest fishing vessel fleet in the state of Florida.

Destin is named after Captain Leonard Destin, a New London, Connecticut fishing master who settled in the area c. 1845 or 1850. The first condominiums were built in the 1970s, although Destin was not incorporated as a municipality until 1984. The city has experienced rapid growth since the 1980s.
