Kids and grandkids vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was the right size for all 14 of us. The beach was just around the corner and the pool too. The grandkids had a ball. We would definitely rent it again. The thing I would recommend is a chest of drawers in the bedrooms to store the clothes.

I was very impressed with the house and its size! It comfortably fit 12 women and was a short walk to the beach! I loved that it already had beach chairs for us to use and even the stroller to carry our stuff in. Very impressed! My only complaint was that we were asked to start a load of laundry before we left. We were only here for four nights so none of us had brought any laundry detergent but other than that everything was great! Love the neighborhood - so quiet and even though it's close to the main drag of Destin - you'd never know! Also, loved the pool! Super easy to book, pay, check in and check out. If I am ever vacationing with a big group again this home will be on my list! Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Wonderful house close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at "Gran & Kids". It was the perfect size for our group of 9 adults and 3 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone. House was well equipped. It had everything you needed.

The location was good... right down the street from the pool and short walk to the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful beach house

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for the whole family. The kitchen and dinner room are very spacious, we were all able to enjoy our meals together. The rooms are also very spacious. The location was also perfect: It was very peaceful and no traffic, and walking distance to the beach. The house had everything we needed including beach chairs to sand toys. Over all this was was just beautiful will defenilty stay here again!

The perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had here! The space is just perfect for sending all the kids upstairs to the awesome bunk room, and we really enjoyed both the house and the nearby pool and beach! Thanks for having us!

Pros and Cons

  • 4 of 5


Large, beautiful house that comfortably slept three families which included grandparents and two younger families with five children and a baby. Wonderful floor plan with large, open living area and kitchen. Close to pool. Well maintained (except for the problem in the cons). Pantry with a separate ice machine made it easy to store food for three families.


The dishwasher worked half of the time. We had at least two service calls so it was frustrating to be on vacation with a dishwasher that didn't work. While the realtor would say the house is an easy walk from the beach, it is for two adults only! For families with young children, the walk is not so easy with accompanying beach paraphernalia. Make sure you bring a wagon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and give us some helpful feedback. The dishwasher has been repaired and I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience that the repair caused you and your family. I hope that you realized that there were two walk through short cuts on either side if Clipper Cove that are not shown on Clipper Cove. The walk is less than 1/10 of a mile with the walk throughs. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and we would love to have you return anytime! Kind Regards, Linsey
