Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here just this past week. We were also accompanied by another family of 6. Both families enjoyed top self extremely. It was absolutely as advertised. My kids love the bunk bedroom and most of all the pool. All the kids enjoyed swimming every day, they also liked riding the golf cart to the Rec center, plenty for them to do. The house fit us all very comfortably and even had room to spare. The location was great. A couple minutes walk and you are right on the beach, the distance to restaurants and activities was very close and easy to get to. The house also has a partial ocean view to enjoy watching sunsets. Anything we needed our contact Josh was more than willing to accommodate( thank you Josh). The house was beautiful, the location was great and Destin was fantastic. We would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks for making a great trip for our families. Thanks, Jay A.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We took our children and grandkids and some of their significant others. Had enough room for all and the pool and hot tub were fabulous this time of year. Mitch accommodated my husband and I with a special request, we would definitely go back.

Top shelf is truly a fitting name for this rental property! Perfect for couples or families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this top shelf property! The home is beautiful and the pool is perfect! We had four couples and three small children with room to spare. There were two double bed bunks that we didn't even use! The home is equipped with everything you need including a golf cart which we never used because beach and community amenities were just a short walk from the house. The subdivision pool workout room and playground were fabulous!

We would definitely recommend this property in Destiny East! We will be returning again someday!

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Top Shelf in August 2016. What a perfect home for small and mid-size groups! The private pool is incredible and bigger than it looks in the photos. House was very clean and everything we needed was right there. We had 13 people (including 8 adults) and didn't really feel cramped at all. Beach is a couple hundred yards away, but parking right in front of the sand was not an issue except for one day that got pretty busy. Not a problem to walk though. Plenty of restaurants and activities for the kids within a very short driving distance. Mitch was very responsive to all inquiries and requests from the date of booking through the week we stayed there. You will not find a better owner to work with in my opinion.

I would highly recommend this home to any of my family and friends, and I cannot wait to return in the future. Thank you Mitch!

no better place to stay..period

  • 5 of 5

what an amazing home. the owner is great to work with, the reviews bear that out as well. we have stayed in this home each of the past 4 years and the home is always in great condition. the owners must spend lavishly to keep the house in this condition because goodness knows its rented every single day of the year it seems... if you are considering this home, book early, or you will not get a spot. worth every single penny. the privacy is just something that no other house can offer. you could literally be there all week, and never see another human being if you chose not to. for us, the proximity to the beach is fantastic, the kids enjoy the pool, and the beds are comfortable. everything you would expect in a great property. I cant imagine anyone not offering up a 5 star review of this place, unless you were just in a bad mood about something else. this home delivers, consistently.
