About Brooke Andry

I have owned homes in Destin for 5 years now, and 4 of my properties are beach houses in Destin Pointe. And I recently purchased twos properties in Crystal Beach in the latter part of 2015. I personally manage all of my beach houses, including this one, LORELEI,, in order to provide customized personal service to my guests.

Additionally, I am a licensed real estate agent in Louisiana. I love Destin and its beaches, and my favorite spot is the beach at East Pass at Destin Pointe to watch the sun set.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

This home worked wonderful for our family. It was my husband, myself, two of our kids, our granddaughters, mother in love and my sister in love. The two separate living areas were just what we needed when my mother in love needed an escape from the noise of the kids. Also her having her own space down stairs was great since stairs are not an easy option for her.

The house was amazing and we had everything we needed. Of course one of the best parts was the heated pool and hot tub. We are from Texas and getting in the pool in December isn't heard of. So it was amazing to swim every night in our own little piece of heaven. We loved being able to sit outside and watch the kids swim or just enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning on the porch as our little squirrel friend came to see us every day.

The beach and ocean wow. We certainly had an amazing time and I would recommend this place to anyone.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

We planned a two-family holiday visit to Destin and arrived Tuesday Dec 29. As soon as we walked in, something was off. The place had a strange odor and as we walked around we realized the unit had never been cleaned from the previous guests. Also, we were surprised to find the upstairs did not connect with the downstairs through the inside of the house. The downstairs could only be accessed by the back deck (not safe for us with small children right next to a pool) or by walking out front and going through the garage. We had planned to have 11 people share the house and now had a much smaller main level to share as we weren't able to let kids roam freely downstairs. We immediately contacted the owner about the dirty unit. She was apologetic and set up cleaners to come right away and the property manager arrived to assist. Despite their attempt to resolve the situation, we had 11 people including 7 small children waiting around unable to settle into the house while it was pouring rain outside. We went to dinner when the cleaners arrived and were finally able to check in at 8pm. It was a very rough start to the trip. The owner had previously offered to heat the pool at no charge and we were happy to see she had done that. The kids enjoyed swimming even in the rain. We were unable to use the beach due to the red tide that resulted in dead fish all over the beach. We had torrential rain for days. We decided to make the best of the situation and enjoy spending time together as a family. However we will NOT return to this unit nor were we impressed with it. The owner was helpful in some ways as she waived our cleaning fee from the inconvenience but overall we thought more should have been done. It was a disappointing part of the trip, but spending New Year's in Destin was fun and we enjoyed several of the local restaurants especially McGuire's.

Owner's Response: I read your review, and I am sorry to hear that it rained throughout the duration of your stay, and the beach was not available to you. Unfortunately, those issues are out of my control, and I can offer no solutions. Wish I could control Mother Nature. I, too, was disappointed to hear that the home had not been cleaned prior to your arrival. As I told someone in your party, it was a human error, and again, I was truly sorry about it. I told him that we would get the situation straight and the house cleaned. When Chad, the person on duty, arrived, he told someone in your party that he would be happy, at his expense, to pay for your group to go eat at one of two restaurants while the house was being cleaned. That person refused Chad's offer. Housekeeping did get the house cleaned. And I did waive your house keeping fee. Additionally, when your reservation was made, I agreed to give you the fourth night free on already low winter rates, which is not my normal policy. I feel that we did everything possible to rectify the situation, both by getting the house cleaned and monitarily.

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

Our family had one of the best vacations ever. The house was

exactly what we needed for all of us. We all had plenty of room and the living area/dining area was great. We really enjoyed the pool area (great place to relax). We were very comfortable with the kids walking to the beach since it was a

gated community. Great beach area. The porches were the perfect place to visit and relax. We really enjoyed being able to watch the ducks at the pond across the way. Loved this place and will certainly be staying there again.

GREAT house! GREAT location! GREAT neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in Destin Point before and just love the gated community, access to the Gulf of Mexico beach side and East Pass beach side and all the amenities of the neighborhood; bike riding, walking, jogging, basketball, tennis, etc. This home was perfect for our family traveling with teenage boys who occupied the bottom floor and the upper main floor for the parents, grandmother and my 11 month old grand daughter...we were all together yet separated. The pool & hot tub were wonderful for relaxing in the afternoons after the beach. Brooke was helpful & a pleasure to deal with.

Awesome!! Great Location, Will Be Going Back Year after Year

  • 5 of 5

This location is great for Destin!! Especially the summer season that can bring a lot of traffic. Minutes from grocery store, shops etc. The layout is convenient for multiple family members with two bedrooms upstairs, and two downstairs. The private pool was fabulous to cool off and great for the kids as it is in the shade!! The tram to and from the beach or neighborhood pool was a nice bonus! The beach was perfect and the reserved chairs and umbrella that come with the house were used daily. Will be visiting again, this was a perfect place for our family get together. We had 6 adults and 5 kids aged 2,4,6,18,19

Great location and home for the week. Owner was a pleasure to deal with. It's tough to beat Destin Pointe for a Destin location, and this is my favorite house to date within Destin Pointe. Highly recommend.
