Guestbook comments from the manager

I was just checking the availability for this home for our summer vacation this was the key to how wonderful our stay was last year! The property is so well kept and was very comfortable for our group of 10 with plenty of room for more! The pool is pristine, the guest house offered some privacy for our newlywed daughter and her new husband and the convenience of being so close to the beach and shopping was perfect for us! We can't wait to come back again!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Beachy Keen was simply amazing. The house is clean, comfortable and cheerfully decorated. Our family spent the Thanksgiving holiday there and had a great time. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. It is within walking distance to the beach and Destin Commons for shopping. Out last night there we went to LuLu's Restaurant. It is owned by Jimmy Buffet's sister and is a fun place to go for a family for lunch or dinner. Looking forward to our next stay in Destin.

Our family met at beachy Keen for the first family vacation in almost 20 years! The property was beautiful and well maintained. The pool was a huge plus considering it kept the children out of our hair and we really got to relax. It was very close to the beach, but honestly we only went once because we enjoyed the house so much. The carriage house was perfect for me, my husband, our two children and our 8 month baby. It kept us separated just enough to not to disturb everyone else with some of our hectic sleepless baby nights. Overall it was exactly what we needed and will definitely be the place of choice for our next Destin family vacation!

Everything was as advertised.

We came to escape the hurricane and it seemed like a vacation for the kids. They tested the limits of the wifi, and it passed. The pool made the time pass. That KS for everything.

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

I never write reviews but for this I had to. We had 3 families, 12 people, and children ranging from 1-12 and this house was perfect!!! One level living, open floor plan, each family has plenty of room. We loved how the 3rd family had their own house in the back. The pool was perfect for the kids. This house was clean and had everything we needed. We were able to put our pack n play in the walk in closet so the baby had its own "room". We also brought a baby hate for the back door so we could watch the pool and not worry about the baby. Walking distance of a ton of stores and restruants, walk to the beach, and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Thank you Cheryl for making this such a easy memorable experience!!! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The Beachy Keen rental was perfect for our family of 10. The house had everything we needed - comfy beds, plenty of living room and dining room seating, kitchen stocked with everything we needed, and the pool was perfect for breaks from the beach and sand.

We would highly recommend this house and working with Cheryl & Rich! We loved our stay and will be back to Destin.
