It needs a thorough cleaning. Needs new LR furniture. We also had cockroaches. Lovely!

These same problems still exist in that house.

  • 3 of 5

Upon entering the property, we first checked out the first floor and pool area. The lounge and table chairs were in disarray, so I proceeded to fix up the pool area to look presentable. The king suite was fine, however, the family room by the pool was cold and drab our entire stay. For that reason, we never used that room except to get to the pool area.

As we headed up to the second floor, the first thing we noticed is that the dining room table was missing a chair. Not a good look. On the balcony, once again, I had to place the chairs back to the table. We were excited that there was a grill, because we had planned a day to cookout. As I removed the cover from the grill, we were floored to see how small, greasy, and dirty the grill was. That definitely cancelled our cookout plans. Proceeding to the bunkbed room, one of the closet doors was broken off, and one of the ladders was broken off of a bed, and sitting in the closet. The bunkbed room is so plain, and could definitely use furniture in it.

After walking around the house barefoot for an hour or so, we noticed the bottom of our feet were dirty! There is no way that house was properly cleaned before we arrived.

Before arriving to Destin, I read a review from a previous tenant that there was trash and water bottles outside of the laundry door in the 1st floor. That same trash and bottles were there when we arrived.

Our last night in the house, one of the ladies opened a cabinet and screamed. There was a HUGE bug on the shelf. I don't know if it's normal in Florida, but we don't know if it was a huge roach or a water bug. Open the cabinet on the right side of the refrigerator and another lady screams. More huge bugs! Needless to say, we were glad it was our last night in that house, but not Destin.

We enjoyed Destin tremendously! The beach and community are beautiful. There were some things with the house that we didn't feel a need to call about during our stay, however, we will definitely be back again! Bella Destina could definitely use a little TLC and some decor to make the house feel warm, inviting, and at home. The bikes were a nice addition. We had fun riding around the community finding houses we had seen online.

The guard at the entrance to the community was so friendly and always greeted us with kind word

Great location - home needs work

  • 3 of 5

Sinks in both up stairs Masters were clogged. Shower on main floor had limited flow. Ice maker on fridge was very slow and only made a tray or two per day. Kitchen supplies need updated. Couch in family room is old and very uncomfortable. Surround sound and stereo did not work. Tiles at the west end of the pool need attention and are dangerous to walk on. We actually blocked off the area so no one got hurt. Would suggest that you get a net for the pool so guests can scoop out the leafs from the trees and bushed. Tree overhung hot tub and needs trimmed back. Pool furniture was great but one of the rocking chairs was broken and my wife almost flipped over day 1. This home is large and in a perfect location and could be a 5 star rated rental but until some of these items are corrected I would not recommend. Maintenance crew showed up on Wednesday and said they had a long list of repairs to address. I feel kind of cheated given the price point and the number of things that need attention. We made the best of it and had a blast but feel this property was overpriced.
