Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We went with four families to Destin. I personally have stayed at many VRBOs and this might be the best one— the pictures really don’t do it justice. It is very roomy, well equipped (everything you’d need in a kitchen), tons of towels, 2 kitchens, comfy beds and pillows, clean, etc. We liked the location too- quiet street. The host was great— checked in to make sure everything was fine and was very accommodating and easy to work with. It was nice to have two separate houses as well. It spread out the chaos of our kids.:) I would recommend this place and I would stay here again. Thanks for a great time!

Beautiful place. Perfect for our family. Nicely decorated and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much. The house was perfect for us. The main house and guest house was very well furnished to meet all our needs. We love the quiet end of Destin and Crystal Beach was a short walk away. The owners were very reachable and addressed all of our needs. Thank you for our stay and my family and I are looking forward to coming back next year.

Beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home!

I would highly recommend this gorgeous home. We have rented several other beach houses in the past and this was definitely out favorite! We travelled with two of our young adult sons and a group of their friends. The two separate houses afforded plenty of room and privacy for all. The pool area between the houses was a favorite hangout place. The houses were stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals together. There were also plenty of nice linens and towels. We were actually surprised at what all was there! The owner could not have been any nicer or more helpful. We hope to return to Destin and rent this lovely place again!

Pictures don't do it justice!

I have nothing bad to say about the property at all. Everything we needed and more. Slept 20 wonderfully. The public beach area was a bit of a disappointment but not enough to sway us from staying again.

Highly recommend!

Thank you again Kim! 😗

Owner's Response: I think this was from one of the children that stayed at the home. They must have been trying to tell their Mom the internet was out for 2 days. If, I would have know it was out I would have corrected it immediately.

Beach Family Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our first trip to Destin! Kim was a great hostess and checked in on us upon arrival to be sure everything was good with the properties and sent people very quickly to take care a couple of things we had found. Great location to get to the beach; easy access just a very crowded beach. Understand though why so crowded as the beach is just beautiful - white sand and blue clear water - waves were rough and the kids had fun swimming in them. Houses were well stocked and we had everything needed to cook in if we wanted to. Having the pool house was nice with the view of the pool and gave us plenty of room for the 13 adults and 4 kids. Would highly recommend Kim's home to families for a great beach family vacation!
