About Jean Brooks

Originally from Ohio, it was always my dream to live at the beach. I came to Florida in 1992 and finally made it to the beach in 2002. This home was our personal home and when we moved to the country to follow our dreams of raising horses, we kept the house to enjoy and to share with others. This home is very comfortable, quiet, and is very family friendly. You will enjoy the outdoor space, separated living areas, bicycles, golf cart and beach toys. I have been in the real estate business for over 20 years and really enjoy the challenge of short term rentals. We pride ourselves on a well stocked home with updated amenities and many family friendly "adds".

Jean Brooks purchased this house in 2002

Why Jean Brooks chose Destin

A great home in a very safe and gated community with awesome amenities. Separated living space is great for privacy and adult/teen stays. Home has bicycles, wagons and a golf cart included in the rental.

What makes this house unique

Gated community, golf cart goes with the house, wonderful community amenities, quiet evenings and no overcrowding. For several families, there is separated living space....two living rooms and separate bedroom areas.

Very Nice Private Home

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, well maintained home in a gated community. Owner/manager very helpful and easy to get in touch with. Pretty much everything you might need for a vacation: Well equipped kitchen, nice laundry with industrial-sized washer/dryer, street-legal golf cart for getting around, and plenty of the essentials such as soap, shampoo, towels, tp, etc.

The guest house/addition is unique and would be great for a separate couple or teenagers, but is a little awkward as you enter through the garage.

Overall, very nice property.

Fantastic for Families!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in your home!

The 2 separate living quarters worked out perfectly, accomdations were wonderful and so close to beach, a major plus. The house seriously had everything, even u items for the beach (chairs, umbrellas, sand toys galore, mats etc.). My boys loved all the bicycles too. Only thing missing was a hair dryer.

Great vacation.!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing vacation at this wonderful house. The house itself was really nice, clean and comfortable. It is located in a quiet and scenic gated community and is just a short distance from the beautiful beach. There was something interesting for everyone. Adults, teens and kids all had something fun to do (board games, books, TV, toys, and more). The kids especially enjoyed the community pool. It was just deep enough and was never crowded. We found everything we needed in the house (kitchen & laundry supplies, towels and beach toys, a crib for the baby, an outdoor shower for rinsing off after the beach, and more).

We are really happy that we were able to find this great vacation house and hope to come again.

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing from the patio swing, back yard, comfortable couch, large families, stocked kitchen, golf cart, to the large layout. I would recommend this house to anyone with a large family. The two separate living areas worked out great for us and the kitchen had everything we needed. The main house had a basket full of toys for young kids and a cabinet of games for the adults. This house had beach towels and tons of beach toys. They even had wagons to help take things to the beach. The beach is about a 5-7 minute walk and the golf cart helped get us there faster. The beds in this house were extremely comfortable, I havent slept that great in a long time. The outdoor area was amazing from having a ton of patio furniture on the patio, front porch and all 3 decks. The back deck even had a shower which really helped with washing off sand. There were also 2 other hoses to wash off pool toys. If we had another family outing, we would definitely be looking at staying here again.

Wonderful property and best amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this very clean house! The set up was perfect for our many kids, the kitchen was fabulously equipped, there was tv in every bedroom and living area, there were games for all of our kids and toys, the garage was filled with beach toys, bicycles and a very handy golf cart to get around. We loved the beds and the bedding and enjoyed the over the top neighborhood amenities. The best part was we were close to Destin Commons, The Crab Trap beach bar and restaurant and enjoyed the beach playground. The bathrooms and bath house were right there where we entered the beach so we were very happy with the beach. The beach is about 600 yards to the house so we used the golf cart and bicycles to get around. This owner thought of everything and we felt right at home. We will be back again and again.
