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!

Nice decor, close to pool

  • 3 of 5

House has nice decor and was close to pool. Nice touch with box of donuts and a welcome note.

Cons: House could use some cleaning to make it nicer. A lot of dust on blinds and baseboards. Walls have stains - could use cleaning or paint. Carpet needs to be replaced. We called to fix slow drain in main floor bathroom tub. Great customer service and issue was fixed right away.

Great Home

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house we rented , lots of space and beautiful view of the pool. The only thing I didn't like much was the parking space wasn't big enough. Other than that everything was beautiful!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review of our home. Yes the parking in the Villages is limited to as many cars as will fit in the driveway which is 3-4 depending on the size. There are overflow parking lots and we do have extra parking at our office if you have more than 3-4 cars.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! We have vacationed in Destin for several years now, and always have a great experience renting from Sugar Palm Rentals. The management is very helpful in answering any questions ahead of time, very welcoming upon arrival and very responsive to any concerns during the stay. The house was clean and well equipped. Our kids loved the lagoon pool, which is right across the street from this house. We like to drive a few minutes down to the beach access spot that has a bathroom/shower off facility, so we don't use the trolley service provided. We will definitely be returning!
