We absolutely loved out time at La Dolce Vita! It is everything that the pictures show it to be. Charming and comfortable; it is designed to be beautiful all the while being comfortable and endearing. There were six of us two adults and 4 young adults 19-20. It allows for privacy and enjoying time together. It is literally 3-4 minute walk to the beautiful beach of Destin. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend to anyone going to Destin! Thank you!

Beautiful home, well equipped, good location

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed at this beautiful home for the past week. The home has everything you could need. Porches are lovely. We used the community pool often as we have young kids and it was never crowded. We were often the only ones there. Close walk to the beautiful white sand beach as well. Thanks for a great vacation!

Great location, beautiful inside & out

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in our stay at La Dolce Vita. It's approximately a five minute walk to the beach and the road at the rear of the house is parallel with public beach access. The home was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Linsey was easy to work with and was helpful with any request. I would highly recommend this house. Can't wait to return next year...
