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!

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

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! 😗

Great House For a Family Reunion!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property and had a great time! The two houses are spacious and gave our family of 15 plenty of room to spread out. The gated driveway and pool area were perfect for the 7 kids aged 4-9. Thank you for sharing your house and for a great week!

This house lived up to the 5 star reviews already posted on line. It was beautifully decorated, very well stocked with anything a family could need. Having our own pool was a blessing and the beach only a five minute walk away. This home is relaxing and quiet with everything you possibly need within a short drive. There are a couple of places we could walk to which made it very nice for our young adults staying here as well. We had plenty of room and would absolutely rent again. We had this house reserved for July 4th week 2016 and our son had to be admitted to the hospital and Kim was very gracious and moved our reservation to this year. She is very easy to work with and responded quickly to our requests. They were few as everything had pretty much been handled but we do appreciate her help. The main house is gorgeous with lots of space and the beds very comfortable. Our son and his family stayed in the guest house which gave them some space from our chaos but we were still all together. Thank you for sharing this house with our family. We would recommend without hesitation to anyone going to Destin. Mike and Vicki Caldwell.

Amazing Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Kim's home is absolutely breathtaking! It's complete with everything you need and best part, it's only a block from the beach! There are numerous family games that we got to use during our days in (due to weather) as well as books to read. They have many lounge chairs and boards for the beach. Kim and her daughter, Mandy, are very responsive and got back to me very quickly when I had questions/concerns during my stay. Overall, it's a lovely place, has everything you need, and Kim is super sweet and responsive. Definitely a great place to book a family vacation!
