Guestbook comments from the manager

Great location and size, August 29, 2016



By Stephanie (California)

Loved staying at the Caribbean Sun in Emerald Shores. It was perfect for our three families (6 adults, 3 small kids). The house was the in a great location in the complex (2nd closest to the beach and a couple houses from the pool). It was a good size so that each family had their own personal space. Most impressive of all, my littlest one locked a bathroom door (not with her in it) after business hours and within an hour, one of the property managers was over with his tools to remedy the situation. Thanks so much! PS - Only complaint was about the mattress on the first floor. It may need some updating according to my mother.



So glad you enjoyed your stay at Caribbean Sun! It is a spacious home on 3 floors with plenty of room and nice balcony space! Close to the beach and pools too! We do our best to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests. Glad we got the door open! Will check out the mattress.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed here for a family vacation that consisted of 6 adults and 5 children. This house was plenty big for us all. And so close to the beach and the bigger pool! The only thing I would suggest is a little updating to the house and furnishings. Overall we were very happy with our stay though.

Reviewer Comments:

We had 3 separate families staying for a week in this house. We never had a moment of feeling like we were on top of each other. Our three families included 6 adults, 3 kids, and two babies. Each family had their own floor, with the three kids (4yr, 4yr, & 3yr) all in the bunk room on the second floor. One major PLUS to this place is that we were able to park 3 Large SUVs side by side in the parking space with room to spare! Another bonus was that the walk to the beach was not bad at all. Packed a wagon up and was there in a few minutes. If we do another multi family vacation in Destin, I will definitely be booking this home again and have already recommended it to other families.

We had a great time in Destin and loved the house we were staying in. This is the third time that we have rented this home and have always been very happy. It was very clean and th3e beds were very comfortable; not to mention that we are only a short walk away to the beach.
