Annual family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our week at this beautiful home was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the flat sandy path to the beach. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool and the beach. The house met all our needs and the elevator was a nice added bonus. The kitchen could use some new cookware and some pot holders. The area is so convenient to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, and fast food.

Outstanding Home, beautiful location and superb service

  • 5 of 5

You came to our rescue by helping us find an alternative home after having Wave on Wave pulled out from under us. Your company was most kind in suggesting three other homes for us to rent at the same price for which we had agreed to rent Wave on Wave. Bored Du Mer was wonderful, comfortable, clean and in good condition. The location's beauty was nothing short of outstanding and we greatly enjoyed the ambience.

Although we had some problems with the heat in the home, some insect issues and a gas grill problem, Five Star did an exceptional job of ensuring we had temporary heating systems until the part needed for the furnace arrived, the insects were treated and the gas grill refilled. The staff was helpful and quick to respond. However, we were put out additional $1500 rental expense over the original agreed upon price with Wave on Wave was cancelled. This incidence of rental has taught us to make sure that any contract we sign will guarantee that if an owner decides to cancel for any reason that we will be provided an opportunity of renting a like accommodation at the same price and quality.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and really clean. We had 14 adults and 4 children and all slept comfortably. The upstairs bedrooms had plenty of space for cribs or blow up mattresses for the kids. The only issues we had with the house were that the dishwasher door would not open fully because it hit the oven door. This made loading the dishwasher difficult but not impossible. Also, the gas burners on the grill were rusted out, but after a quick phone call Five Star brought over a brand new one. My only suggestions to improve the house would be to fix the oven/dishwasher issue (would require installing a slightly smaller oven) and buying a full size vacuum. Since the entire house is slick tile, the floors needed to be vacuumed often to keep people from slipping. The house only came with a dust buster which didn't help much. To be fair we didn't ask Five Star to bring a vacuum or I'm sure they would have.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us at Bord Du Mer! I am so happy to hear how well this home met your family's needs. We will have the builder check on a different arrangement for the dishwasher and hope it didn't cause to much trouble during your stay. Please let us know if we can help you with any future vacation planning, as we would love to have you back!

Miller Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 15 had amazing time at Bord du Mer! From the private pool to the breathtaking Gulf views this was a picture perfect getaway. Five Star management was by far the best company we have booked with; very caring and will go above and beyond so that you enjoy your stay. We also used Deliver My Wine which was simple and extremely convenient when no one wanted to go to the lq store! Can't wait to plan our next trip to Destin.

FAMILY Travel

Excellent location and we enjoyed our stay.

The only negative was on the upper deck there were no chairs. Pretty foolish to have a beautiful deck and view but no where to sit and enjoy them.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation! We can't thank you enough for the hospitality. It was so relaxing to sit on the balcony and listen to water. The sunsets were incredible!

Five Star did an amazing job. Any issue regarding the property was handled immediately even if it was just a question on how to operate something! You are the best!

Thanks
