Not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

Janice was very nice during our booking and with our problems. The weather didn’t cooperate, but that just gave us more time to spend in the house. The kitchen was stocked well and had all we needed from cooking pieces, dining service, and a nice supply of spices. The decorations were tasteful and not cluttered while providing plenty of seating. There were also plentiful supplies of laundry detergent, dish detergent, and hand soap. The bunk room had a large stock of VHS tapes that we didn’t use.

We chose the property specifically because of the private pool and paid the extra fee to heat it. We got a refund of the cost for pool heat because the heater was out the entire time we were there, but unfortunately that left us in a house missing the sole feature we wanted on our vacation at a cost higher than what we would have paid for a beachfront condo with a heated pool.

As often seen in a rental property, there were a number of minor maintenance/upkeep items we noticed. Had the pool heater worked, we would have needed to clean the pool several times a day due to the large volume of fallen leaves in the fenced back yard. Landscaping did not appear to have been maintained and moss was growing on the side of the house. Items such as balls, pool skimmers, and hoses were left laying around the pool deck and the lounge chairs were filthy. The frosted design on the front door was flaking off and part of the trim around the glass missing. The loveseat was worn, not really noticeable until the cushions slid off to show the holes in upholstery exposing the foam.

While it may be a matter of perspective, the description of one short block to the beach did not match our expectations as it was probably three times the distance we expected. The master bedroom wasn’t large and the bathroom was quite small (although the second bathroom and two other bedrooms were much larger than expected). The foam mattress topper was comfortable and the sheets very soft, but would not stay on the bed to the point we frequently got up during the night to remake the bed.

There were several positive aspects of our stay, just not enough to meet our expectations or give us a desire to return.

This property was well maintained with virtually everything needed to prepare meals, keep clothes clean and to ensure our comfort throughout our visit. We felt so “at home.”

Beachcomber

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Janice!! What a wonderful time we had at your lovely home. My wife, 3 young daughters and my in-laws truly enjoyed our stay. The description and pictures of the house are spot on. We stayed last week During our spring break and so glad we chose your home. The house was literally one block from the beach. The pool in the back yard was a nice size. This was our second visit to beautiful Destin and we will be sure to rent this home again on our next visit. My only issue, and it's minimal, I wish the grill in the back yard was a bit bigger, but that's just me as I love to entertain and grill for friends and family. Otherwise, what a great time at the beachcomber!!

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was much bigger than expected. It was perfect for our group of 11. The pool being out the back door was great! Had a issue with the AC but it was taken care of fast thanks to Janice for calling someone out. We will be booking again in the future. Thanks so much for sharing your home with our family.
