Great house! Great location!
We rented this house for a wedding reception...used the private beach for the ceremony. It was perfect! Plenty of space for guests who just came for the weekend. It was clean, spacious, close to the beach, and close to several restaurants. The outdoor space was the perfect size for our reception of about 50 people! We loved it!
Great. Had everything we needed.
Very handy to everything!
Especially the beach!!
Great location and house, but not maintained well
The location of the property is great, with a very short walk to the beach. The house is very nice and the pool was plenty large, but the property management company did not do a great job. When we arrived, there was sand on the floors and the placemats on the dining room table had lots of crumbs in and under them. One of the bedrooms had about 10-15 articles of clothing from the previous renters in the dresser. The cooler and beach carts that were advertised as being available were not present either - we ended up getting 2 carts on the third day after requesting them, but the cooler never arrived during our trip. The lights on the 3rd floor were not working and we had to move a storage shelf in the laundry room to get to the breaker box. When it came time to put the kids to bed, two of the beds had blood on the sheets and one of the comforters had blood on it. We contacted the property manager to express our concerns with all of this and were told they would come by the next day to pick up the clothing left and the dirty sheets. There were no spare sheets in the house, so we had to pull sheets from other beds for the kids to sleep on. The lights on the 3rd floor tripped the breaker several times over the next day, so we asked for an electrician to come out. He discovered that the plastic wire nuts had not been installed on the dimmer on that floor and the wires were touching, causing the short. This was obviously a huge fire hazard and was fixed by the electrician. We had a heavy rain on night and the pool was nearly overflowing the next day. No one ever came to check the pool and we ended up flushing the pool ourselves to get it back to where it needed to be. We were never able to get the arcade game to work properly and ended up using it to block the door from the 3rd floor room to the balcony since there was no way to lock it in a way that the kids could not easily open it and access the balcony on their own. Overall, the location of the house is wonderful and the beach was beautiful where we went each day. It was great having a pool in the backyard for the afternoons when beach time was over. The furnishings were nice and the bedrooms on the 2nd floor are very large. Had the property management team done a better job, this home could easily have received a 5 star review.

The house is in an excellent location. Enjoyed our stay. It was a perfect house for multiple families. Was a bit disappointment in the cleanliness. The pool was very dirty, but it was due to the storms that rolled through. Once the pool cleaner came, the pool was very clean until the next storm. Can't control mother nature... The owner was very helpful with fixing an issues that we reported in a timely manner. Thanks for letting us enjoy your amazing house.
Exactly what we needed!
This was our first trip to Destin and this home was perfect for our family! The bedrooms were spacious, the AC worked great and the beds were comfortable as well! The children as well as the adults enjoyed playing the video games. The patio/pool area was beautiful and the palm trees provided a perfect backdrop for pictures. The neighborhood is very nice and close to the beach. Beth and Bruce were very prompt in responding and gave us lots of great info. We really enjoyed our stay, made lots of great memories and plan to return. Lisa - Dallas, TX
This was our first family trip. It was great, the house was absolutely gorgeous. Plenty of room, we enjoyed the pool. The walk to the beach was short. We will definitely like to visit again.
