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.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my family and the rooms were very nice. All the bedrooms were very private with their own bathrooms. The beach was right across the street, The only problem was most of the beach was private for the condos on that side but there was a public beach not too far down we used the provided wagon to take our things in and that helped a lot. I would definitely stay their again

Wonderful place for our girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

Spent our annual girls trip at this house and had a great time, even though we had to weather a day of Hurricane Irma! The house is beautiful, plenty of space for 11 women; loved the balconies for morning coffee. The pool area is very relaxing and spacious. The carriage house nice area for the ones that stay up later. We loved the location so close to the beach access and the local coffee shop down the street :) We will definitely look into this house for our next year's trip!

Great house Great location Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of 7/29/2017 - 8/5/2017 We had 7 adults and 9 kids between the ages of 2-13. Carriage house was perfect for the family of the 2 year old. Since we have a pool at home we brought a pool water tester to make sure the pool water was safe with that many kids swimming in it. After a day or two of swimming and a ton of sunscreen the pool chemicals got of whack. Called Jeff that night and the next morning the pool folks were there to take care of it. Had a blanket that was dirty and called Jeff, he apologized and it was fixed that day. These were the only problems we had and they were fixed almost immediately. There was plenty of room for our family with places to hide from the grandkids. The master suite on the 2nd floor was outstanding. All the bedrooms in the house are perfect, with four of the girls sleeping in the room with the 2 sets of bunk beds and two boys in the tower. The kitchen is a little small however it is as fully stocked as you could want. Plenty of large pots and pans and plenty of dishes and silverware. Two refrigerators in the main house and a small one in the carriage house. Only one ice maker in the kitchen fridge so bought ice the first night. After that we kept a large bowl in freezer with ice from the ice maker so it kept up with the demand We brought a Presto griddle which was used for breakfast, eggs, bacon and sausage for the entire family. Beach is across the street and very accessible though crowded, still had lots of fun. Publix grocery is about 5 minutes away and has very reasonable prices. We had 4 vehicles and a 21 foot boat in the driveway. Destin is a popular place to go and there will be lots of traffic. I don't think Jeff can solve that problem. We highly recommend Bahama Breeze as a family vacation. If you a have a problem, our experience was that Jeff would have it taken care of. We made two suggestions when we left, one was for fans on the carriage house porch and the other was a water proof shading over the pergola. That way you can grill outside if it is raining. Jeff seemed very receptive to the suggestions because he wants to keep improving his property. Kids loved the ping pong and pool tables. Swimming pool is a little small but all nine kids could get in at once and have lots of fun.

We highly recommend this house for a family vacation /reunion/etc. We would definitely stay here again.

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.
