Family Spring Break 17'

  • 3 of 5

The property is located nice, but a few things should be improved - the huge back deck is cracking and curling bad, somewhat of a hazard for bare feet and small kids with nails popping up; patio furniture is broken, rusty, and in need of replacement; carpet is a bit spotted, worn; mix match of furniture and stemware and dishes; brick path in yard to dock should be fixed, trip hazard; would have preferred common supplies like paper towel, toilet paper, trash bags and coffee/sugar to be available.

On the other hand, for the price point, it was a nice place with a nice (believe new) property manager, and everything worked as advertised, like wifi and tv, and pet friendly, in a good area, with a nice bay side / marina view into Destin.

Didn't end up getting a boat to dock there, but would inquire if the boat dock is functional, as it seems to shallow to truly dock even a small boat along the dock. (believe it needs sand removal). And was told trailer parking is not allowed in the driveway, but believe the ad states differently.

All in all, would return if some of the small things, like the deck and patio furniture was fixed, and the price stayed on the low side (for the area).

PS/ Destin is a great vacation site. However, the walk to the gulf side beach was a bit long from this location, thru a public access point down the street, and long walk through sand and past the breakers. Norreiga ? Beach at the end of the street was great for hermit crabs, and low waves, as it was in the bay pass area.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disappointed with some of the things with the house. As you could see, the new owners are in the process of fixing the deck. Since you were there, they have replace all the hand railings and some of the other deck boards. Nails have been hammered down also. They plan on replacing more of the decking. The chairs have been re-webbed. The iron rusty table has been thrown away. The carpets were just cleaned before guests came in the first week of April and were cleaned again last week. The owners plan on replacing it with a hard surface material. As far as the docking area, I had asked you if you were going to need it and you said you did not think you were going to need it. We are having a hard time finding anyone to dredge but are working on it. The unit next door is allowing us to use their dock also. Also with the supplies, you are started with toilet paper, paper towels, and a couple trash bags, soaps. I did not realize it said you could park a trailer in the driveway, I will be fixing that. Sorry if it was misleading on that. I did say that you could park it in our driveway if you needed too. I hope you will return in the future, alot of these things have been or will be improved.

best house on thewater! crab island 5 min by boat

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing time at this house. The floorplan is great and very spacious. There is plenty of parking for a large group. The house is perfect if you have a boat. I can't wait to visit again!
