Ocean Breezes, Million dollar home was a huge disappointment

  • 1 of 5

Ocean Breezes property was a huge disappointment. We took 10 members of our family for my mothers 85th bday and Thanksgiving. The location of the property was across the street from the condos where we usually stay and the view looked great. Upon our arrival we found the pictures on the website deceiving, much of the property was in need of repair or updating, seems this property started renovation of the 2nd floor but nothing else, bedding was smelly and old, seating in kitchen was missing, cabinets were falling apart, mixer, blender, can open all broken, all pots were old and not cook worthy, hot water was scalding, loose boards on all porches, fixtures didn't work, pool light broken, downstairs shower leaked big time, dryer quit on third day, property was just not as expected as the nightly/weekly rate reflected. If you charge top dollar for a million dollar plus home, I'd expect a home in decent plus shape. Will not recommend. Owner/ property manager responded to my concerns but not enough to change my opinion. We Travel to Destin 2x a year we will continue to stay at the condos we are familiar with across the street.

This house has it all.

  • 5 of 5

Very good time. Description of house exactly what we got. Very clean. Tv in every room. Good view. Very impressed of the house and the ammenities. Despite being close to neighbors was very private. Gas grill. Two car garage with fishing pools and boogie boards. Plenty of room for 17-18 people. Noise was very low. Very easy to check in and out. Overall...5 of 5!

Great location, but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

You can't beat Destin beaches. You also can't sweep the sand off the kitchen floor without a dustpan!!

We loved our stay at Ocean Breezes. Plenty of room for the 13 of us, and the location is wonderful. But would we stay there again? Probably not unless the property gets a little love first. The appliances all need repair, the basic tools need restocking, and the house wiring needs attention. The entire property needs a paint job inside and out.

We loved our stay, but the inconveniences the property presented left it a notch below the perfect vacation.

Terrible property and service. Never go there.

  • 1 of 5

Ocean Breezes is the most terrible property.

When I checked in, I couldnt watch the cable tv, fridge was not working well and pool was very dirty.

Second day, pool was still dirty, a/c and stove were broken and wifi didnt work.

I think They dont check the property before somebody checks in.

Great location and perfect size for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

My family and friends and I enjoyed really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Breezes. The location was perfect with easy access to the beach. And the size of the house and additional carriage house above the garage had a great bedroom/bathroom configuration was perfect for our large group. On the negative side, the Wi-Fi access was spotty and internet was out for a couple of days. Also, the kitchen utensils and cookware were pretty old and sparse so I would suggest bringing a few of your own essentials if you plan to stay awhile and do much cooking.

Loved Ocean Breeze!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Florida for our National Dance Competition that was in Ft. Walton Beach. We own a Dance Studio and rented this home due to the many bedrooms to accommodate my large family and our teachers. The Carriage House was fabulous for the 4 teachers we brought with us. What a way to unwind after being at competition all day to sit by the pool or on the front porch listening to the waves! The beach is right across the street and since the street is a dead end, there was very little traffic. The 2 car garage was full of extra beach chairs, floats for the pool and sand toys that others, including us, have left behind for additional renters to enjoy. The only minor issues is that the upstairs does not get as cool as we are accustomed to, the cook top is temperamental about starting right up, and my son had to fix the fan in the Carriage House (one of the blades was loose and was hitting the light fixture), a minor fix. The landscaping needs to be attended to, lots of cigarette butts, bottle tops, etc. left behind from others, bottles in the bushes, just some minor things. A contractor came the first day we were there to look at the kitchen cabinets which had the acrylic paint peeling off, and those were to be repaired. Another small issue was the big refrigerator had no shelves left on the side so many of your refrigerated cooking items had to be placed on the shelves, taking up valuable space when we were cooking for a LARGE group. Over all, we LOVED our stay and would return again and recommend this rental to all with a large family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We love Ocean Breezes too - a gorgeous property. We are having our inspector check out the items you have mentioned (upstairs a/c, temperamental cooktop, more shelving in fridge and landscaping) to correct them for incoming guests. Again, thank you for joining us and we hope that you'll stay with us again!
