Dated

Roaches in closet. Furniture in poor condition. Lacking some kitchen pans. We loved the pool & village but not the tiny porch on unit. Will probably not return

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, palmetto bugs are a constant battle in Florida. No one likes to see any inside, but they do get in from time-to-time. We wish you would have called us when you saw them so we could have sent the exterminator over to take care of them immediately. No one can promise they will never see a bug in a home in Florida, but no one responds as quickly as we do, given the chance. We're aware the home still has some armoires and you didn't like those, but the living room furniture is only 2 years old, and most of the mattresses are also only 2 years old. Yes, what an amazing pool right out your front door! There is a lot of room at the pool to lay out in the sun.

Upkeep Needed

  • 3 of 5

The overall neighborhood and pool area is well kept up. The house needs some repairs and a good cleaning. The house is not well insulated so you hear the fountains to the pool from the main master bedroom on the 2nd floor. When you have noisy neighbors next door it is like they are inside the house with you.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay in this home. Most people LOVE to hear the water fountains from the master bedroom.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed our weeks stay. The house was great, clean, plenty of room for all three generations that included grandparents, adult children and grandchildren that were ages 5, 2 and 1. We enjoyed beach time and pool time.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a full week at the house and it was pretty close to flawless.

1) Great layout. There were 14 of us (six adults and 8 kids of various ages, from 3 to 18) and we did not get in each other's way. There are three floors. The main floor has a living area, dining table, kitchen, king master, laundry and bathroom. The second floor has two king masters (one of them a suite) and two bathrooms. Top floor has two bedrooms (one with a bunk bed) and another living area.

2) Great location. The pool is across the street, which was super convenient. And surprisingly there was no noise transmission from the pool. The beach is about 7-10 minute walk (which can be too much for some people when it is hot, but there is a trolley). Also in walking distance (I am a walker), there is a Whole Foods, movie theater and bunch of places to eat. Wide sidewalk close to the beach - good for running.

3) The house was was well-maintained and equipped. If I was to point out one negative, it would be the fridge. A bit small for a house that size. Most of the shelves in the door were broken, limiting storage space (But this is super minor).

A warning about parking. You cannot park more than three cars in front of the unit (and that only if you can fit them, so in some cases, only two). There is hardly any overflow parking within the complex. Until we figured out where we can legally park (church parking lot about a 0.8 miles away), we were quite stressed out. Once we figured that out (with the help of the management), there was no issue.

Pretty house in a great development

  • 5 of 5

Our main criteria for this Destin, FL vacation was: 1) A house big enough to comfortably sleep 4 couples and 2 children 2) A great kid-friendly pool 3) Walking distance to the beach 4) An updated house that didn't look like my Aunt Merva's peach and wicker-filled condo! This property met all of the above! It was well-outfitted for making big dinners for 10, enough space that we weren't in each other's business, and an ideal location within the gated community (quick pool access and a lovely view from the balcony). The Sugar Palm rental staff helped before and during the trip with quick, friendly service. We never saw the shuttle to the beach during our stay, but the 4 blocks was no problem. I wouldn't hesitate recommending it!
