Beautiful location!

Destiny by the sea is beautiful. Beautiful neighborhood and location. The house needs some TLC - overall we enjoyed our stay but would not stay at this particular place again.

excellent location so near the beach crossover walkway! plenty or room. quiet neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had no problems. It was just as described. We love coming to the area and will continue. Perfect amount of space for our 3 families. The close beach access was more than worth the price we paid. Views are lovely. Calm and quiet. A few beach toys in the garage were a plus for our kids. Easy access to the neighborhood and house. Convenient to shopping. LOVE the private beach. Water pressure was great in showers. Open concept kitchen and living space is wonderful. Plenty of tvs. Nice balcony with comfy seating and dining. Grill worked fine. Elevator was so convenient for luggage transport. We hope to rent this house again!

Near perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, great view, just across from the beach access. The only SMALL problem was there were no bath towels in the master bath. We had to use the small hand towels our first morning. Other than that, this home was perfect for our family.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

It was a great place but soo many rules! We were sitting on our balcony at 10:03 and one of the guys from the front gate drive by in a golf cart and asked if we could use our "inside voices" I mean come on 10:03 on vacation! Lots and lots of rules. But the house was great lots and lots of room for 3 or more families.
