The house was gorgeous and very spacious. Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families for the week. Everyone had their own bedroom and bath and plenty of space to enjoy. Nearly all of the rooms had gorgeous views of the ocean. The open floor plan between kitchen, eating area (both inside and out), and living area allowed for our large group to all be together for dinners, games or just hanging out together.

We had 2 small children with us so having the private pool and being close to the beach was perfect.

The house was well equipped and even had 2 icemakers.

We had a great week and would highly recommend the property!

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

Once again Beach Reunion and their staff blessed us with an amazing vacation. We planned this trip last minute over the fall and they found us a home called Over the Top. This home lived up to its name for sure. The floor plan was one of the best we have seen. We have stayed in many 7 to 9 bedroom houses with Beach Reunion and this house seemed just as big even though its only 5 bedrooms. It can sleep a lot more people than a normal 5 bedroom house. Its right across from the beach and you can see the ocean from each level. All the small details in the home were great. I would recommend Beach Reunion and the Over the Top home to any family looking for a great vacation house.

Perfect Wedding Reception Location

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was rented fora few day stay to prepare for a wedding at the Emerald Grande and then the reception to follow at Over the Top. This was the perfect location for my reception. Gorgeous view, ample space, incredible interior. My guests all were very impressed with the house and we as the renters were very happy with the amenities. Carrie, the concierge, was very very helpful and was there to aid in any need we had. Everyone at Beach Reunion was helpful and upbeat. I live in Destin but will rent with them again if the opportunity arises.

Decent house — needs refurbishing - beware of the disappearing beach view.

  • 3 of 5

I will start by saying overall this house was ok, it’s a nice large house that has some great features. However, as detailed below, there is definitely room for improvement and at this price point for weekly rental I don’t feel like we received the best value. The biggest disappointment/surprise was that the unobstructed beach view (as displayed in the pictures) is now partially obstructed by new construction currently ongoing. Based on the progress it looks like the construction started at least a couple weeks before our stay and I think we should have been notified by Beach Reunion that this was occurring. As a group we tend to spend a lot of time out on the balcony and the ongoing construction definitely made this experience less enjoyable. Friday morning was the worst when they were pouring the concrete and had two large trucks making a lot of noise. There are a lot of rental properties in the Destin area, this is our fourth year renting in the area and though we had another good vacation it’s unlikely we would select this property again, especially at the current rate.


1. Awesome pool area

2. Nice kitchen

3. Extra drink fridge

4. Big MBR suite, bathroom & closet

5. Ample seating in family room

7. Huge bunk room with 6 qu beds

8. Backyard gate for beach access

9. 2 gas grills

Not so good:

1. Beach view obstructed

2. Ongoing traffic and construction noise on balcony

3. limited dining room seating

4. house in need of repair/refurbish

5. House needs more thorough cleaning

6. Uneven cooling on first floor, BR needed portable air unit but bunk room was freezing

7. no bathroom door in MBR

8. MBR very bright in morning

9. Only 2 outlets for 6 bed bunk room

10. Ants in kitchen window/sink area

11. good location but hard to get in/out of neighborhood

Rental Company - Beach Reunion:


1. Approved 10am checkout (instead of 9am).

2. Overall responsive to issues

Not so good:

1. should’ve been notified of construction across street

2. issue with golf cart rental t

3. no help for ants in kitchen

5. many “punch list” items that were not new and probably could’ve been handled as part of normal property walk-throughs:

Finally, I sent a copy of this feedback to Beach Reunion, I was told it would be reviewed and they would follow-up, that was a month ago and never did hear anything. See trip advisor for more detailed review.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Over The Top for our family vacation. We had a total of 15 in our party. The elegant house had plenty of space for everyone. It was very comfortable and had very nice, up-scale amenities. The third-level master suite was amazing; large open space, large closet, large walk-in shower, large aerated tub. The kitchen was exceptional; lots space, great stove. The downstairs bar area was great for relaxing and playing pool. The elevator was very convenient for moving luggage and for the older/younger members of our party to use to travel between floors. The pool was very nice and included lots of shallow space for kids to play. The view of the Gulf was amazing even though it is across the street from the beach. The community playground and pool was great for kids. The staff at Beach Reunion was exceptional; very kind people. They go out of their way to help. We had a couple of minor maintenance problems; the staff responded immediately and remedied the problems (placed a new refrigerator before our arrival after discovering on their own that the original was broken and maintenance staff always arrived at house within 10 minutes of any call). The walk to the beach was fairly short. The provided golf cart was very handy for the older/younger members of our party. The beach umbrellas and chairs that are provided and set up with the house rental were very convenient. The company that provides the service, Sunset Beach Service, was easy to work with, very helpful and friendly, and offered great prices for additional umbrellas/chairs. There were some very good restaurants (Kenny D's, Crab Trap, Bad Ass Coffee) within walking or golf-cart drive distance. Over The Top is a great property managed by a great rental company, Beach Reunion. I highly recommend both.
