Good Day Sunshine should be named Great day sunshine! We absolutely loved every minute if our long weekend at the house. In fact we only left one time in three days and that was to go to the grocery store. We shopped at the Fresh Market and that was a wonderful choice! The house was beautifully decorated. It has a "beachy" feel but with a clean contemporary decor. The custom made dining table was gorgeous. We all sat around the table playing board games and watching football with all the doors open listening to the sound of the ocean! We had a large group and EVERYONE complimented the comfort of the beds/bedding, and loved having so many bathrooms available. I have stayed in many VRBO units, and in comparison I feel like this house provided more than most, such as paper products, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, etc. I am used to having to bring my own, so I was pleasantly surprised. I was also impressed by the amount of crisp clean towels in each bathroom. That may seem like a small thing, but not having to do laundry on vacation was great! That said, I did take a look at the washer and dryer and let's just say I wanted it for my own house. They were top of the line.
I was also pleased with the kitchen, not only is it well decorated, and efficient, it is well stocked. There is a keruig coffee maker, and a regular coffee pot. They also provided a crock pot which was a perk for us for our football party taco soup.
We parked in the garage, and also lined up a few cars in front of the garage along the boardwalk. There was ample public parking along the street as well. There is a public access to the beach beside the house, and I have read other reviews complaining about that in the reviews here. There are public accesses all along the road. It really is not a problem. The beach is for everyone to enjoy. Not everyone has the fortune or the luxury of getting to stay on beachfront property, I would never begrudge the public access as if I was more entitled to that than anyone else. There is plenty of private beach area for the unit, that was not an issue at all. I actually thoroughly enjoyed seeing people come and go along the boardwalk while we sat out on the deck. Everyone was friendly and waved or spoke to us. We enjoyed our weekend and the house immensely. I would love to rent this beach house again.
This was our second trip to this house having had a wonderful experience the year before. But something has happened the pastbyear. Air conditioning on the third floor was not working properly, the outside doors had rusted handles and were stuck making entry and exit difficult on the first and second floor and the paper products left for our use were insufficient for the number of guests this house is advertised as accommodating. And lastly, one of the grates on the outside grill did not function properly.. The view of the gulf remains stunning however and were the best part of the property. Last year as we left there was a for sale sign on the property - I know why!
Destin was beautiful! This property is so worn-out that it's gross. We've been going on beach vacations for 20 years so we know what to expect and understand these places are being rented weekly so they take a beating. It just didn't seem very clean, seems like the service does the minimum basic cleaning. Sweep floors, change beds, wipe bathrooms...but three of us felt like there was still sand in the beds on the very first night, candy goo and stick on the coffee tables and lamps were dusty. The living room furniture was dirty and cushions were worn out. Bedding was thread bare and pilled. A very important detail that isn't in the rental info is that a public beach access board walk runs right next to the house, 12 inches away from the house! It's very noisy. Additionally we didn't realize most beach area in Destin is private. So all these people would walk down the access with their families and all their gear and then have no where to go so they would stand right in front of our spot. So yes this property has private beach but with the beach access next to it you end up with loads of angry people hanging out with no where to go. Our vacation was nice, this property was not. Very over priced for the quality of the accommodation.

The unit is beautiful with some great updates. The beds are comfy. We were very disappointed to find it's a duplex with VERY limited parking options that are hard to maneuver. Nowhere in the description of the unit states it's a duplex, very deceiving. It also states nothing about the public beach access that runs along the house which allows for a LOT of noise all night long... Very hard to sleep peacefully. The view of the beach is amazing, but the access to it is shared with the public access. We had many people leave their personal items (shoes, chairs) at the foot of the steps to our unit. We also had people from public access take chairs from our unit to the beach. We paid the beach service for a week worth of extra chairs- reasonable rates but the actual service was terrible. No time set up was the same between days; we even had to call one morning because the guy never showed up... We set up our own umbrella multiple times but chairs were locked up. Anytime the landlord was needed, they could not be reached. I spoke with a person one time. The phone rang twice and went to a busy signal 90% of the time I tried to reach someone or I left voicemails. Although the call was always returned, I had multiple issues that were not addressed because no one could be reached. I love Destin and will return, but more than likely will avoid this rental.
I highly recommend this rental! The pictures are very accurate. It is a beautiful three-story unit right on the beach. We had four couples and two children for a family reunion. I particularly liked that each bedroom has its own bathroom.
There is an area of the beach roped off behind Good Day Sunshine, but it isn't very big. My sister-in-law rented three sets of chairs and umbrellas in the bigger area next door for our entire stay. Imagine waking up every morning overlooking a beautiful beach with your own group of chairs and umbrellas with your name on them right next to the water! Definitely worth the extra expense!
