BEWARE! BIG HEADACHE!

  • 2 of 5

While our family had a great time together, communication with the owner DiDi was poor after the contract was signed. We were initially concerned that we would even have the house for our trip after several unanswered emails and texts the weeks prior to our trip. Deposit took over a month to be returned, even though their contract states it will be returned within 14 days and again several unanswered texts. We ultimately received our full deposit but there was no justified reason for this delay. This turned out to be a very stressful transaction, that tarnished our stay. Would never recommend or stay with this owner again.

Owner's Response: Upon checkout, received a text "really enjoyed our time with our family". We had several communications with this traveler through out booking. One of which was a request for bed rails for the bunks, which I researched, ordered, and had delivered for this stay (my time & expense). Renter requested check in details (along with several other questions) 2 weeks prior to arrival. I was away form home & did not have 'files' with me. When I hadn't responded within 24 hours, she reported to VRBO. Admittedly, I do have other obligations, a business, family, other renters, etc. - I had responded that I was very busy that day & did not have time (that day) to adequately respond (multiple questions) - I responded within 2 days which was still nearly 2 weeks prior to check in. We have wonderful neighbors. Very helpful, not intrusive, they tolerate us (lol) and our renters. But, on day one of this stay, these renters were trespassing - cutting through a neighbors well groomed, obviously PRIVATE yard. On day 4 of this stay, received a message from ANOTHER neighbor that these folks (kids) were on their boat dock, turned on their lights and left them on all night. Really?! We have the largest frontage on the water - provide anything & everything for all ages (including special requests for bed rails). And they violate other's property. We arrived for a two week stay at the house following this stay. There were several issues - fortunately it was our family that was inconvenienced as a result, rather than other renters. As we do not cash the deposit checks - it was 2 weeks then before we got home to deposit. These folks had no complaints until they believed they were losing a portion of their deposit. At that time they even complained about two toddlers running around 'naked' in their grandmothers yard next door?! We would have been within our rights to retain the entire deposit from these renters, but we returned the entire amount. This is our home. We generously provide and share many amenities . We are happy to share our home with others for their family vacations. Everything we have is offered for others use not Abuse. In this case, not sure these folks would ave been completely satisfied regardless of the situation.

Our 2nd stay here!

  • 5 of 5

I posted with lots of detail last year. Our stay was just as perfect this year. The upstairs AC quit working, I contacted DiDi, she responded right away and had someone out to repair within just a couple hours. Excellent. My family loves, loves, loves staying here! Was excited to see the addition of some kid's bikes since last year.

As a side note, we had family pictures on the beach by Tiffany Sims. She did a beautiful job and was reasonably priced.

Amazing property with lots of extras!

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful house and layout with incredible views all around. We took advantage of all the extras such as the golf cart, kayaks, basketball and hoop, games and puzzles, and outdoor lounging! The house had all the essentials needed and the layout was great for one family or more. We would love to return for another vacation and would recommend to our friends and family!

Di Di was very responsive and helpful during our reservation process!

Loved it! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 15 (3 generations; 9 adults, 6 children) spent the first week of June here (two of the little kids slept with parents and we made use of the spare twin mattress; otherwise I think 12-13 would be about the max for everyone to actually have their own space). The house is beautiful, there are a lot of stairs, but it feels very open and has great views from every window. You've got the gulf in the front (across the street), and the sound out back. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the living room, and the kitchen is spacious. The master bedroom and bath are huge. I was lucky enough to get the futon (quite comfy!) on the top level, which has a large deck with a hammock...that was my favorite spot in the house. My son and I would hang out in the hammock each night before bed just listening to the waves and watching the moon reflect on the water.

There is a lot of outdoor space and seating and we made good use of it, particularly the deck on the main level. Everything you need for the beach is there...plenty of beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. A couple of kayaks, and fishing rods, some bikes, and a nice golf cart to haul everything across the street to the beach. There is an outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand.

You can find parasailing, dolphin tours, deep sea fishing, etc. in Pensacola Beach or Destin, on either side of Navarre, just a short drive away (although you wouldn't have to leave Navarre-there are restaurants, shops, Walmart, etc.). Navarre Beach is the perfect spot in the middle, with nice quiet beaches and a laid back atmosphere. My brothers went fishing for red snapper, which we had for dinner (best meal of our vacation!). We ate at Dewey's in Destin, which was excellent, and at the Crab Shack in between Navarre and Destin, also very good. We had sno-balls in Navarre, and went parasailing at Radical Rides in Pensacola Beach, a fun time.

DiDi, the owner, was friendly and responsive (although we didn't have need to contact her during our stay-but I believe her daughter lives nearby so she is there to handle anything that might arise). She did add an additional cleaning fee to our group after I had already signed the contract, which I was told was because we were a large group. Also know that there is an extra charge for the use of the golf cart (which is well worth it, you definitely want the golf cart).

Overall a great house in a great location; we loved it. Definitely recommend!

Navarre Beach House

Rented home to accommodate family attending my sons Navy "Winging" in Milton, FL. Beautiful home, location is outstanding. Terrific views from anywhere in the home. Home was very clean and well maintained and easily and comfortably accommodated 12 adults. Owner is great to work with. Highly recommend, hope to come back in the near future.

Great house, great location, everything is there that you need. The top floor is probably the best.
