Fantastic house, spacious kitchen for our large family. Easy beach access too.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation. Located directly across the street from the beach with very easy access. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of beach chairs/toys. The game room provided hours of entertainment for everyone. Having 2 washing machines and dryers was a bonus for our group. A small table is needed for folding laundry so you don’t need to use the ping pong table. We will definitely consider staying here again.

Good Time had by all

  • 5 of 5

Our family of kids grandkids and yes us the grandparents all had a wonderful time. The great room gave us lots of space for meals games and movies. There was always plenty of hot water. The kids loved the pool. The owner Jeff was very nice to work with. The game room was a favorite too. Great Property and owner.

Great home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home worked very well for our family of 20. Access to the beautiful beach is very close and convenient. The neighborhood is attractive and well-maintained. The game room was a hit for both kids and adults. The kitchen is well-stocked and there are two fridges. The pool is small but it was used regularly by both adults and kids. (Be aware that some of the beds are sofa sleepers.) The owner was excellent to quickly respond to our questions. We would definitely recommend this home!

Owner's Response: I am glad this guest had a great time at our home and enjoyed the game room, well stocked kitchen and beach access directly across the street from the house. The pool is approximately 16'x24', which may seem small compared to those in most suburban areas, but is actually much larger than the average pool in Destin. There are numerous pics of it on the website from various angles, including aerials so you can see it from above. Also, none of the beds in any of the bedrooms are sleeper sofas (there are pics on the website showing each of the beds). As described on the website, there are 6 bedrooms, plus a hallway bunk area which all have beds with upgraded mattresses. The house sleeps a total of 16 in beds. In addition to the beds, there are sleeper sofas throughout the house that sleep 8 more people as described on the website. Thanks again for staying at our home and we look forward to having you back again next year!

Perfect for our big group!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great place to stay with excellent beach access. We enjoyed the game room and pool when we needed a break from the sun and then took the quick walk across the road to the boardwalk and back on the beach. The kitchen was well stocked and seating was plentiful. We would definitely visit again.

Perfect for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, directly across from the beach access, and close to all shopping needs, with a coffee shop and bike rental within walking distance. Great room and game room were perfect for our large family. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the equipment we needed for cooking. The only criticism is it would have been nice to have more bathrooms for our large group and the pool is smaller than the picture indicates.

Great place and location for the extended family

  • 5 of 5

Highlights of this home for us is the close location to the beach, pool, and game room. Because there is so much to do at the house, the place seemed very roomy. Teens loved the game room, adults enjoyed the pool and everyone was impressed with the easy access to the beach. My daughter went for a morning run on the beach and saw a family of dolphins. It made her day! Other highlight for the boys was to go crab hunting on the beach at night. We took the suggestions of places to eat and things to do from the owner's suggestions, and were so happy we did. Lots of good restaurants close to the home. Sunshine Pontoons had very nice boats. Crab Island was a blast for the teenagers. However, It's too hard for little ones, 7 and under. We saw large jellyfish there, but if you watch for them, it's not that hard to maneuver around them. Also, if you plan on going to The Track, go carts, you can get half off tickets from 9am-12pm. They can be used up till 4pm. The house has an open floor plan and is very light with all the doors and windows. Only suggestion would be they need more than one kitchen towel, and trash bags. You need to supply your own paper goods, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, etc. Walmart is just minutes away, so it's easy to get whatever you need. They have beach items, chairs, sand toys ,boogie boards etc in the patio area, so I wouldn't bring anything until you see what you need. We have been to many beaches in Florida, but this one is, by far, the best. White sand is cool on your feet and the water so beautiful! If we bring the extended family again and need a large house, we will definitely return. Thanks Jeff for sharing your home.
