We loved the house, it was perfect for our large group. Beds were great and TV's in all rooms. It was clean and an easy walk to the beach. We were disappointed there were not more amenities that came with the house such as pool toys, beach chairs, beach towels for example. I have stayed at other places for the same price that came with much better amenities that are great when you are flying and cant bring this stuff. Next time will check the amenities available before booking.

The place had the rooms that were advertised but pool was dirty and had to call them to clean it.
Between the pool need to be cleaned and the birds nesting in the attic and it was hard to enjoy the property the birds are bringing in nesting material that covered the pool deck and the entrance to the property not well-maintained

Overall the place was amazing and clean.
Loved staying there and really did not want to leave. The design and decor of the house gave me exactly what I wanted in a great family beach vacation.
Beautiful home - great location!
We loved our stay here - the location was great, the house was clean and the beach just a very short walk away. Another identical home was in the process of construction just next to this home but we never heard any construction noise at all. The builder stopped to talk to us to make sure they weren't bothering us. Very nice of him to be concerned! The house was well appointed - I can't think of anything we needed. Plenty of towels, kitchen supplies, etc. We had an issue with connecting to wi-fi but they had someone out immediately to fix the problem. The only suggestion I heard from another family member was that she wished there were mirrors in the bedrooms so she didn't have to tie up the bathroom doing her hair and makeup. We shared a Jack and Jill bathroom so I would have to concur with that idea! We are already planning our next family get-together in Destin - probably same time next year - looking forward to it!
Just as I hoped it would be.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful beach house. Nice short walk to the beach. Convenient to the stores. Clean, comfortable, and modern style home. Kids loved the pool and the space. Bedrooms set up perfectly for our family. Everything worked. It was a smooth weekend from checking in to checking out. Management, Newman-Dailey, made everything very convenient and quick on response. The only complaint would be to change to newer mattresses, some were concaved. Would definitely come back!

Awesome house!!! It accommodated all of our needs. Everything is super close and a short walk to the beach. You are also about a 10min drive to the boardwalk and a walk away to a lot of different stores.
