Fantastic Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a reunion of some old friends. This was this perfect place. The downstairs and kitchen area are open and a great place for family style dinner. We spent most of our time in the private pool and hot tub as well as upstairs shooting pool and hanging out. The public beach is just a short walk away. If you don't feel like walking to the beach, there is a small parking lot. Grocery stores and other shoping are close by and downtown Destin with bars and restaurants is just an uber away. I would absolutely recommend this house to any of my friends and family.

Perfect Place To Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation with several adult kids and many grand-kids. Everyone had a great time! Lily pad gives a large group plenty of areas to "do their own thing" The upstairs not only had a pool table and Foosball table but also a seating area with a TV and a table where games or conversations could take place. The kitchen and living room area down stairs was open and gave many places to relax - not to mention the upstairs balcony and downstairs porch that overlooked the pool. All this space doesn't even include the other house which has everything you could need. There are plenty of dishes (and a dishwasher) and many appliances. We cooked many of our meals and never lacked for anything.

The pool was fabulous for young and old alike. It was a nice break from the ocean.

Lily pad was very clean and inviting. Everyone (no matter the age) had a FABULOUS time. I would highly recommend Lily Pad and would definitely stay there again.

Great house, perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lily pad in July and had an excellent time. We had a large group, several family's and lots of children. The house was large enough to accommodate everyone, and the private pool and hot tub could not have been better. There is a pool table and Foose ball table upstairs which made for fun evenings and the house was furnished nicely. Kirby was very easy to work with and very professional, and made me feel that if i needed anything i could count on him to take care of it. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay here again next time i have a large group and vacationing is Destin. Everything was perfect.

Great beach house for the family

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our 4 grown kids with their significant others stayed at Lily pad for a week. We also had some additional family members stop in during our visit. It was really a great set up. Our kids are 18 - 25. The game room was perfect for them. The pool and hot tub was very nice. Overall the house and guest house had plenty of space for everyone. It was a very short 2 block walk to the beach. I was a bit concerned and thought I might need to rent a golf cart, which is common around there. But we walked to the beach everyday.

Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

For spring break we rented Lily Pad with two other families and we could not have asked for a better place. There was plenty of room for 10 kids and 6 adults to spread out or hang out together. The deck next to the pool was great for watching the kids and eating meals. The guest house was very well furnished but the living space (living room and kitchn) really wasn't needed because the main house had so much room. The pool and hot tub were perfect and other amenities like the game room and netflix really made the stay that much more relaxing and enjoyable. The walk to the beach was a little far for kids under 6 but there is an awesome public beach access about a 2 minute drive and there is a playground and bath house.

Lastly, i would say working with Kirby was great. I have rented from vrbo before and Kirby was top notch in communicating through the rental process and he stopped by to make sure everything was goin well. He offered suggestions on things to do and you could tell he really would make himself available to help if needed.

I would recommend this property in a heartbeat and if i planned on going to Destin again, Lily Pad would be the place on the top of my list of places to stay.

Thanks Kirby!
