Two Thumbs Up!!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in the group raved about this beach house. The furniture and bedding were all new or seemed like it- something we have seldom found in larger home rentals, but for our group of pickier females, it was noticed and appreciated. There were 4 children under the age of 4 and the house was perfect for us- two pack and plays, a highchair, Maclaren strollers, baby gates, pool toys, and a sleeper in the master bedroom that we did not realize was there. The pool was a good size, while we enjoyed the pool area as we were grilling out and having a family ping pong tournaments. The location was great- we were about a block from a church with a large playground that had play areas for our little ones and another area for the older ones. The beach access was walk on level and directly across the street. This was a life saver for us as going up and down stairs with beach gear and babies is not easy. There was a great coffee shop and restaurant a block away. Destin area had great shopping for the girls and golf for the guys. We didn't end up going deep sea fishing but hope to do that next time. I would recommend this house and Destin to any one traveling with children.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We had family gather from Ca, Tx, and Nc ....totaling 18 people. We enjoyed the house very much. We had usually been in Blue Mountain Beach which we loved, but we all enjoyed being close to shopping and restaurants. The one disappointment was the limited beach area we thought we could use. But my husband called the sheriff's office and was told where we could go. But the closeness of the beach was perfect, as we could come and go daily as we pleased. The pool was great to have plus we all played pool (even tho the top wasn't the best and was wet even having a cover on it) and ping pong. The house was clean and seemed to have plenty of utensils to cook with (once found). Just to remind you, two bedrooms were with bunk beds so not really great for adults, but due to the fact we had 2 younger children who wanted to sleep on floor in their parents room. The next 2 youngest kids slept on the couches in the living room leaving one adult having to sleep on the top floor (no bath) in bunk beds. I think one suggestion I would make, is to have at least a folding table with chairs so that everyone could eat at the table. We squeezed onto the table plus counter space one night so we could gather as a family... One other note to tell the guests, is that the police can ticket you if you park your car on the grassy area in front of the house instead of in the driveway.

But our overall comment was it was a great gathering place. Thanks so much for our special memories we were able to make!!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a great vacation at our home with your family! Thank you for the suggestion on the folding table/chairs. We are adding a new larger dining table this upcoming offseason to seat more people. As described on the website, only one bedroom has bunk beds. The third floor tower room also has a set of bunk beds, but it is not one of the 6 bedrooms. The house has 4 king bedrooms, 1 queen bedroom, 1 bunk bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds, plus the tower room with 1 set of bunk beds. Parking throughout Destin is in designated parking areas only, and the city will ticket for cars that are parked illegally. The driveway is large and can accommodate 5-6 cars. I am glad you enjoyed the outdoor ping pong and pool table by the pool. Since it is outdoors, the pool table top is a weatherproof billiard cloth, so it is not the same as you would have on an indoor table. It should have been dry though, so there must be a hole in the vinyl cover. Thank you for letting me know, so that we can get a new one. Thanks again for staying at our home and we look forward to having you back again in the future!

Perfect Beach House! Wonderful Memories!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 50th Anniversary with our children/spouses and 9 grandchildren (ages 5 through 16) at Bahama Breeze.

On the day of occupancy we arrived early to find an individual from the cleaning service down on their hands and knees cleaning out the refrigerator. That impressed me because I knew they were giving the house a thorough cleaning. We drove around the area until they were finished. Upon our return we met Ed who was inspecting the house to make sure everything was in perfect order. Ed was very cordial…even stopped by during the week to bring us more gas for the grill so we would not run out. This was our first time renting a home and I must say that I was extremely pleased with the cleanliness and condition of everything in the home and pool area.

The home was well supplied with pots, pans, dishes, utensils and towels. The pool area was amazing! There were plenty of lawn chairs for those who enjoyed sunbathing. Those who chose to eat outdoors had enough seating at the tables. We all enjoyed the pool, ping pong table and pool table. There was a nice area alongside the carriage house for horseshoes and other games. There is a covered porch in front of carriage house for anyone wanting a little more shade. The outdoor lighting was colorful & presented a nice atmosphere in the evening. A plus was the outdoor shower! Everyone always showered off before entering the house as this kept excess sand outdoors and not on the floors!

There are plenty of beach chairs and sand toys along with a blue beach wagon. Don’t go shopping for anything prior to checking out what’s at the house.

One could not ask for a beach access any more convenient than Bahama Breeze. It is literally across the street and there are no stairs! Very easy to pull chairs and drinks in the wagon. We never had difficulty finding a spot to set up our umbrella and chairs even though it was the week of July 4th!

Each day was occupied with an activity…whether it be the rental of a pontoon boat and having fun at Crab Island, parasailing, deep sea fishing, or beach. Everything is very convenient.

I contacted Jeff many times “prior” to our rental with questions and he always responded quickly by phone or email. This was my first rental and Jeff put me at ease. We had no problems during our stay and would not hesitate to recommend Bahama Breeze. It was perfect for our family of 16!

Thank you Jeff and thanks to your excellent management service.

Destin Family Vacation!.

  • 4 of 5

The house was amazing size, it worked out beautifully for our family, three generations.

We were 8 adults and 6 children under age 7.

We were able to check in early as the house was already "cleaned" I did go over the kitchen and especially the pool house could have used vacuuming and in one of the bedrooms we changed the sheets as it smelt smoke and was not cleaned.

Overall a very nice and comfortable place...

The pool great for afternoon use, although slippery when wet.... lots of toys for the children, incl a couple of porter cribs, a big and two small strollers, and a very handy wagon to bring beach toys or kidsin...a great bonus!

Pool table and Ping Pong table fun for kids and adults.

The Beach was simply amazing, although a small area for the public, but literally across the street.

It was lots to do and shopping near by.

Overall a very comfortable home and Jeff so quick answering questions, thank you!

We had a great family vacation!

Owner's Response: We would like to thank this guest for staying at our home and are glad that they had a great time and enjoyed the house, pool area and close proximity to the beach across the street! We understand that many guests have been driving a long way and can't wait to get into the house and begin their vacation before the scheduled 4 pm check-in. Therefore, we do let all of our guests know that they can check-in early if the choose and the cleaners are done, but that the cleaning inspector (who comes by 4 pm) will not come into the house if the guest is already there, and to therefore let us know of any cleaning items that need attention and we will have them addressed quickly. As this guest checked-in early, I wish they had contacted me as we could have had someone take care of these items in a few minutes. Also, I apologize for the burnt smell on the one set of sheets, as we use a commercial laundromat and every now and then they can be dried on too high of heat. We would love to welcome this guest back again in the future if they return to Destin!

Extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our extended family including 9 adults and 5 children. There was lots to keep the kids occupied - pool, pool table, ping pong, sand pit, etc. And the beach toys, chairs and wagon were a great surprise!! Having the beach access practically across the street was nice too. The only complaints that I heard from our family was that the "comforters" on the beds were a big skimpy. They were duvet covers without a duvet. And the lack of chairs on the front decks. Other than that, our family really enjoyed our time together and would recommend the house to others we know.

Owner's Response: I am glad that this guest had a great time at our home and enjoyed the pool area and beach right across the street! I am sorry that the duvet covers felt a bit skimpy. Over the years, we have tried using duvets and not using them, and found that some people like them and others feel that they are too warm based on how hot it gets in Destin. Therefore, we decided to go with just duvet covers for those that like a light feeling, and we then stock all the closets with blankets that people can put on top of the duvet if they want a heavier, warmer feel. Thank you for the input about more chairs on the front porch decks. We have 12 chairs on the front decks, and didn't want to put more as we didn't want it to look "junky" from the street if you are walking by. However, there are numerous chairs by the pool on the back side of the house that guests can put on the front porches if they would like. Thanks again for staying at our home and we look forward to hopefully having you back in the future!
