About Ryan Martin

Hello! We would like to welcome you to stay with us here in this paradise we call Destin. I spent the first part of my life in Virginia and moved to Destin about 15 years ago. My wife was born in Germany at an Air-force base and then relocated to Crestview, FL where she lived til March 28th, 2010 when we were married. We both strongly believe in Jesus Christ and trust He will bless our business and guide our paths. We truly enjoy the rental business and since we live here its always a pleasure to check our guests in and meet so many wonderful people from all over the US. Thank you for taking the time to read our Bio. Be blessed!

THE BEST place to stay in the Destin area!

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth time we've stayed in one of these properties, and they are hands down my favorite place to stay in the Destin area. The homes are large enough to accommodate multiple families and still allow for privacy. The kids love the bunk beds, and the bonus room upstairs is great for our family. Walking right out the back door to the pool is wonderful, and we enjoy taking the golf cart right across the street to the beach. The owners are very friendly and personable.

Great location- close to beautiful beaches!

  • 3 of 5

I stayed at this property for a family reunion. The home is large and has nice sized bedrooms with attached baths so there was room for everyone. The living area is spacious and the pool area was nice with lots of seating and shade from the balcony. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and filled with beautiful homes. It is very close to the beach and the golf cart made it easy to transport items to the gate where we could just walk across the street to the beach. It is close to shops and restaurants so the location was great.

The home itself was just okay. It is a rental and it shows. There were no beach towels or any beach items besides some boogie boards that probably a former renter left behind. The house only had the bare minimum items, there was nothing extra. There were no extra blankets or pillows or towels. The bath towels were thin and in rough shape. There were no dish towels or baking pans. The furniture is getting worn. The WiFi is spotty. There is a guidebook to read upon arrival and there are A LOT of rules. We all felt like we were being scolded and threatened. Every rule had a monetary punishment with it and ended with an exclamation point. It did not feel welcoming at all. I have rented many, many homes of this size and have never seen anything like this rule book.

Also, the owner asked if a/c maintenance could come and they showed up 3 hours later than expected and stayed in the house on both floors for 2 hours. It was a rude interruption of our time that should have been scheduled when the house is empty. We did not feel right leaving them alone in the home with all of our belongings so had to stay and monitor them on our vacation time. We were not happy with this lack of consideration.

Our family of 16 (three generations) loved the amenities and location of this property. Building was comfortable and spacious, with plenty of room for every generation to "hang out" in their own desired space. Will revisit this site!

Perfect setting for family fun and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

The thought crossed my mind that this might be to good to be true. Any doubt I had went away the moment we arrived. Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting. Clean and Comfortable for lots of family with varied needs and wants. Everyone had plenty of space, ease of access, amenities, well stocked, and privacy. Pool was great, golf cart made a nice short ride to carry stuff to the beach. Ryan was responsive and attentive. Thanks for a memorable vacation.!
