We are also located across from Destin Commons, which features over 100 shops and restaurants, movie theater and pop-up water fountains - always popular with the kids.

The pool and spa area is unbelievable, something you'd find in a world class resort. The lagoon style pool is 30,000 square feet of gorgeous, sparkling clean water, with a walk-in area, three waterfalls, spa and lavish landscaping, and plenty of sitting areas for your group to enjoy. It also has surround sound, a flat screen TV, and a Tiki Bar to help you relax and get in the beach groove.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome time! The place was great and the neighbors were very courteous. We will definitely recommend this place to others. The only problem was that the ice maker wasn't keeping with us!!

Nice house and community pool

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood and interior of house were nice. Horwever the houses are extremely tight and there is really no outside area to gather when grilling or hanging out. We were a little disappointed about the distance of the walk to the beach however you can use the trolley van for pick up during certain hours. The pool area is very nice and owner is very quick to respond and easy to work with.

Dirty House

  • 2 of 5

NOT impressed with the property. It’s not what I expected at all for what I paid for. $$$$. Upon arrival there was a foul odor in the house. Refrigerator had a nasty smell. Bedding, towels and pillows are worn out. Pans and pots were old. Restrooms curtains are rusted and dirty. Dirty carpet. Overall House was dirty. I will not be back to this property for sure.

Owner's Response: Im sorry if you think that the house did not meet your expectations. I take pride of my vacation home and try to keep it in tip top shape and resolve any issue that may arise. I do feel like this has been an unfair review. I have not noticed any smell and none of my previous guests have ever mentioned it. As for cleanliness, my cleaners have been with me for years and i never had any complains before. As a matter of fact, I get compliments on how clean the house is as you can see with my other reviews. I always try to update my furnishings and appliances and most are actually less than a year old. However, I do take all reviews and concerns seriously so I have replaced the shower curtains, pillows, sheets, and pots and pans to make sure my guests are satisfied with their stay. I do admit that the carpet during your stay could be cleaner. But, unfortunately, during our busy season of june and july, theres really no gap between check in and check out that will allow the carpet to be cleaned since this will require all day to dry. Thats why i schedule carpet cleaning for the 3 bedrooms upstairs on april and august when theres more vacancy. I also just recently updated our hallways to hard floors to try to avoid this problem with plans to change the bedrooms to hard floors too in the near future.

Great place to stay: Mom approved

  • 5 of 5

I like that the house is not on the pool side because there is a lot of traffic in and out around the pool. House was clean, has comfy beds, and everything you need for a short summer stay including a washer and dryer ( a Mom must). There were plenty of bath towels but make

Sure you bring your own beach and pool towels. I would come back to this home, thank you!

Terrific Trip!

  • 4 of 5

A great community and definitely geared for families with young children. The pool is perfect as the depth fits kids of all ages. I would be a bit concerned with their "pool rules" as they are excessive but the area is kept quite clean! The location to the beach is ideal as well being only a few blocks away and having a golf cart for transfers. Although, watch out for golf cart driver; Frank. He is a bitter old man and cussed often with my children in the cart. Overall it was an amazing experience and would definitely recommend coming back!
