About Jimbo Tate - Owner

Family of 4 from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We love to get away to THE House in Destin when ever we get a chance!

Jimbo Tate - Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why Jimbo Tate - Owner chose Scenic Gulf Drive West

We fell in love with the most beautiful beach in the world. The water is a deep emerald green. The sands are powdery white that glissen in the sunlight. And such spectacular sunsets. Nothing beats Destin, Florida.

What makes this house unique

Family Tides is really close to anyting you want to do or any where you need to go in Destin.

Perfect Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We looked at many houses but are now convinced we made the perfect choice in this home. The house is modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Great view of the gulf and just a few blocks from the awesome beach. The pool and patio area is set up nicely and can accommodate a large group of people. The pool catches some mid afternoon shade which allowed us to swim while nursing sunburns. (Apply sunscreen heavy and often when at the beach) Our teenagers loved the 3rd floor which is set up like a mini apartment. If our future travels take us to Destin we won't have to search for a nice place to stay. We already found it.

BIG, BEAUTIFUL, and conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

BEAUTIFUL house. Everything was as described or BETTER! Had a great time despite some inclement weather because of all the options afforded to us at the house when the beach wasn't an option. Would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a good amount of space to stretch out. Furnishings were really nice. Great location near the beach! Would love to stay here again some day!

Beautiful home with an awesome kitchen to cook for large families!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect layout, enough space for multiple families, and only one block away from the beach! And if your family cooks you will love the kitchen where everyone can participate in home cooked meals!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Family Tides for 1 week. This place was great. Very short walk to the beach (<5 minutes). The house has everything you need. It is very spacious. Also the house location allows you easy access to everything in Destin. I highly recommend!

Nice pool, large home, in need of repairs and deep cleaning

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for the week for my parents, aunt and uncle, ourselves and our son and a friend, 8 people total. The home should sleep 16. The boys wanted to sleep on the third floor which had pull out beds that unfortunately were broken and could not be used. There was not a single bathroom in which an exhaust fan worked and with five men in the house can get a little stinky! The house was dusty in areas like the walls I guess the cleaning crew just doesn't think to clean there? But coming down the stairs you can see the tops of the lights and the entertainment center just filled with mounds of dust. It's pretty disgusting. The showers and tubs sure could use a magic eraser as they were grey/almost black where you stand. I did not even use the Jacuzzi bath because it was dusty all around it and under the plant staged beside it was the top cover to someone's razor. To me that was pretty gross, so it became our towel catcher for the trip. Downstairs in the living area it was very frustrating as we were trying to figure out the lights and all of the switches, there were about 20 switches and maybe 4 were labeled you could flip a switch and nothing would happen. It took almost the full week for us to figure out how to turn certain lights on. The sound system does not work either, we had to use our little blue tooth speaker anytime we wanted to listen to music by the pool or in the house. It would have been nice to have had the speakers actually work! There is a bunch of dusty equipment in the entertainment stand in the living room, but nothing works. Please let me note that my husband is very knowledgeable in sound equipment and can usually figure these things out. The kitchen is large but there are a lot of broken drawers that are just nailed shut, but still half way sticking out. The gas stove has worn out knobs which I learned while cleaning around the burner when my wipe went up in flames! The knob was so worn the burner had turned off with a pair of pliers.

I don't want to make this house sound horrendous, but for the money we paid to stay there the pool was definitely better than others in that area, it was close to the beach, it is a large house. I just would have liked a cleaner, more up to date house than what we got. I do believe it said recently updated or something to that effect when we booked. I would say not! We did not call the owner or make a fuss as we did not want to focus on the negative while on vacation.
