Guestbook comments from the manager

We absolutely LOVED this property and have talked about returning next year. The only glaring complaint we all had was the wi-fi. I know the literature said it was unreliable, but it was almost nonexistent. We all live by our phones and ipads, so this was tough. Loved the ease of the Ocean Reef Resorts website. The property was awesome.

Great beach location

  • 3 of 5

The house is beautiful, and located on a great beach that is family friendly. Also within walking distance to some great restaurants. However if staying end of March be prepared for cooler weather.

Also there was no broom, vacuum, or dust pan. So for cleaning up little kids food that had dropped on floor not so convienant.

Kitchen is stocked with pans, bowls, and all dishware. Was easy to make meals at the house. Grocery store was just a few blocks away, which is super convienant.

Traffic is terrible on the frontage road in the morning and late afternoon before dinner. Just make a note if trying to get out of driveway it is hard during these times.

The house had some plumbing issues when we arrived and it took them about 4 hours to get to house and it took at least another 3 hours to fix. Wish there would have been a book that had recommendations of local restaurants to go to, and grocery stores. Also a map to where the community pool is. For older people that do not like to use technology or know how to this would of helped but since we had people with smart phones to find places we were ok.

Overall, beach is beautiful and house is in great location. We all enjoyed!

This house needs better maintenance and more thorough cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

I was truly disappointed in this house and the need for maintenance and cleaning. The management company is very kind and responsive but there were too many things, I didn’t want to keep complaining so I just made a list of things that need attention. I realize that with just a couple hours each week between renters, your not able to get much done. But when you pay a for a home you expect it to be in good condition.

Owner's Response: Lisa, thank you for the feedback. We have since repaired the mentioned items and have also had a deep clean done. We hope that this does not deter you from returning to our vacation rental again in the future. Warm regards.

Owner's Response: Ellen, thanks for staying with us. We are sorry to hear that the accommodations did not meet your expectations. You will find that none of the rentals in our area offer what you referred to as "basics". We do provide the initial supply of toiletries (a roll of toilet papers for each bathroom, paper towels, small packets of soap and shampoo, a packet for dishwasher soap, and all linens and silverware). Unfortunately you are correct about pets. None of the beaches are pet friendly in our area. You may have missed the trash cans and recycling bins but they were located on the side of the home. As far as beach chairs are concerned all of the rentals come with beach service in season. The season runs from March to October. After that time they companies who handle beach service are no longer available. We are sorry that you missed out on this amenity. We look forward to having you back next year and hopefully we can have you back in the summer so you can enjoy the view from the beach chairs. Thanks for staying with us.

Wonderful stay at Sun of a Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. The location is wonderful! There are two restaurants, Pompano Joe's and The Whale's Tail within 1/2 a mile to the east and west. I only went to Pompano Joe's and it was excellent! Also there are two outlet malls in either direction, Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlet, if you want to do some shopping. The Commons has an Imax theater if you want to catch a movie one night. There are also several golf courses near by. Our guys played at Regatta Bay and they said that it was very nice. When we arrived at the house, everything was clean and neat and ready for us. One thing to note, is that the bottom floor bedroom with the balcony, is the only access to the beach from inside, without having to walk out the front door and around to the side walkway. My husband and I stayed in that room and it wasn't a big deal for us at all, but to some it might be. We also received 2 umbrellas and chairs with our stay, which the local beach service set up for us every morning, so we didn't have to worry with that every day. The same beach service will also set up a bonfire on the beach for you at a price. We didn't do that, but a few people around us did and it looked like fun! We have stayed in Destin and the surrounding areas for many years and this house was by far one of our favorites! I would recommend it to anyone looking to make the most out of their vacation :)
