SPRING BREAK 2018
The house was fantastic, pictures are spot on.
Had a great time, beach walk was perfect, not to long.
The only 2 things that could be improved on, is the pull out bed mattress in the top floor bedroom probably needs to be replaced. You can feel the springs through the mattress.
The guest house TV in the bedroom had some problems. The owner very quick to call cable guy. The cable guy got it working and tested it out and seem to be fixed but then the next day, day 4 of 7 days went back to not working. The family in that house just didn't bother with it anymore.
Over all, would rent again. The kids had a great time. It was a success.
Great house. Numerous rooms. Well furnished. Nice neighborhood. Would come back
The house was perfect for our needs and we would definitely return. There were a few items in need of repair but definitely nothing to complain about. When we did have some issues, the owner was incredibly responsive and provided the information necessary to remedy the situation. She was great! We had 17 people and it was a little tight in the living room / gathering area but when the weather was nice the screened in porch and pool helped - along with the guest house in the back. Location is convenient.
Perfect for family . Clean, well furnished and decorated. One block from beach!
We were two families with 8. Plenty of room for all. The kids loved the option of pool and beach. We all enjoyed biking the area . The teens went off in their own with no worries.
Can’t beat the white sand beach!! Lots of activities.
The house was perfect with plenty of space for all. Kitchen well equipped. We will be back again.
Nice beach house
Nice house & location. Still had a new carpet smell while we were there but that should wear off soon. Beautiful views from 3rd floor balcony. Nice time of year in Destin as not crowded at all.
The house is in a nice location and owner is very friendly and helpful. You do have to walk if you want to get to a public location for the beach. The house itself needs a good cleaning and some attention. Light bulbs need replaced in a lot of rooms (Some we would have replaced but couldn't reach). Roof leaked in second floor hallway. Carpet very warn (When booking carpet was suppose to be new by the time we stayed). Many tiles cracked throughout main level. The 2 queen beds in main house were unconfutable. Pool was nice and had a lot of outdoor toys for the children. The price was reasonable, which is probably why the house is in the condition that it was in. Overall the house was average.
Thanks for your review. We've had an active hurricane season this fall and 3rd floor balcony did leak when Irma & Nate blew through.. We have resealed balcony again so should hold for next hurricane! New carpeting in now and kitchen counters coming next week:) Those queen mattresses both brand new so not sure why they would be uncomfortable.
House is in Crystal Beach neighborhood of Destin. It is 3 houses away from ocean front drive. Our house is within walking distance to the Destin Commons shopping area (ideal for families with teenagers). House also very close to a church playground for smaller children and of course a 2 minute walk to the beautiful white sand beaches of Destin! Beach access at Shirah street one block from house.
