Another wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for another great stay at your clean and comfortable beach cottage. Had everything we needed - we grilled out several evenings, enjoyed the pool, gorgeous white sand beach and mostly just relaxed in the quiet Gulfside community. Our little dog loved relaxing on the many porches. Just perfect! Can't wait to return.

Attitude Adjustement was amazing! This beach house was beautiful, modern, clean and quiet. The patios were lovely and were my dogs favorite spot. The kitchen was perfect for family style meals and the grill came in handy. The location is perfect! It was a short walk to the beach; and just a few blocks to Starbucks, the mall and other places to eat. And yet it was so quiet and peaceful. We loved and are in the process of figuring out when we can go back!

Truly Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

Truly fabulous and I recommend this property fully. I have nothing but positive feedback regarding our stay at the Attitude Adjustment! This beach house completely exceeded my expectations. It was super comfortable and cozy, updated, lovely coastal decor, beds and linens were scrumptious, the AC was awesome, super clean, great showers, ceiling fans, quiet, and it has a wonderful kitchen and appliances. I have already booked my second stay this summer in August 2015. Pet friendly too for our family Golden Retriever (who only sleeps), but he was happy too. The location couldn't be better for ease of mall shopping, grocery shopping, gas for the car, restaurants, and day trips into Destin proper, Santa Rosa, and Seaside. The best thing about the house is that, for all practical purposes, is on the beach because it only takes about two minutes to walk there. It's on Miramar Beach, which is spacious with sugar white sand and turquoise water. The owner of Attitude Adjustment was 100% responsive, flexible and professional. Sandcastle Vacations was excellent as well. Conveniently, no one needs a key. All you have to do is use a pin code to enter the cottage. This is a nice beach vacation where we can drive to (12 hours) instead of flying. We enjoy having our car during vacation. I need to figure out my new 2016 Attitude Adjustment vacation dates. I'll be staying there a third time and probably even more. We absolutely loved this beach house and the Emerald Coast.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay! My friends and I (8 people) stayed here for three nights and had an amazing time. There was plenty of room to fit 8 comfortably. The townhouse not only felt like a beach house, but also a cozy home for a weekend away.

As for the renting process, Lisa was so accommodating considering we were a group of post graduates. The leasing office was also willing to work with our situation, and everything went flawlessly, including check in. The coded entry for check in made it easy to show up anytime and have a way to get in. Also, having 8 people could have made things tricky if we had keys. It was so convenient to not think about keys!

Everyone in the area was extremely friendly, and the short walk to the beach was exactly what we were hoping for. This home is exactly as it is advertised, and I plan on returning very soon! Thank you Lisa for the amazing vacation spot!

Great Stay, Wonderful, quite area

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late in the night and everything was well cared for. Very clean, very well maintained. Had a wonderful time, other than it was colder than usual for the Destin area that week, which was common everywhere this year I guess. I notice that there is a previous review dated February 1 that says the property was not clean or well maintained, I don't have any idea where this person think they stayed but it wasn't at this place. Quite the opposite for me, had a wonderful stay. All appliances were used and all worked well. The oven was clean, everything worked and I walked around in socks most of the time and never had a dirty sock when I took them off, always a great sign. I rarely right reviews but was planning another trip next month and was considering this property and saw the review. Unless something drastic changed in the couple of weeks after this person stayed, I can't imagine what they are talking about, because my stay was AFTER theirs and BEFORE their review and I don't have any idea what they are talking about. It was cold when I arrived, the heat worked great, it had warmed up when I left, and the air conditioning worked great. The property was exactly what I hoped for, was very clean, and I had no maintenance issues, and it's an amazing deal at the price.

Needs TLC

  • 2 of 5

Attitude Adjustment cottage needs some upgrading and TLC. The Gulfside Cottage community is nice, and very convenient to beach and shopping - we enjoyed the closeness to the beach and grocery store. However, this cottage is in need of a thorough cleaning and general wear maintenance. There are nicer cottages available for rental in the Gulfside neighborhood.

Owner's Response: We were very disappointed to see this review. We would like our guests to know that if they are ever displeased with ANYTHING, they can contact us (the owners) or our property manager, Sandcastle Escapes, and we will handle the issue IMMEDIATELY. It is this level of service that has helped us sustain great reviews and many returning guests all these years. Sandcastle Escapes is on call 24/7, right around the corner from the home. We have a deep clean service every spring, and if there is ANY housekeeping issue, Sandcastle Escapes will come over to handle it immediately. Within the last year, Attitude Adjustment has gotten a new refrigerator, washing machine, dishwasher, AC unit, deck furniture, and different accessories. We also plan to reface all the cabinets; our guests have not complained about the cabinets - we just like to stay ahead of things! We love Attitude Adjustment, and we take very good care of it. We want all our guests to feel that they've come to a wonderful home away from home, and we do all we can to ensure that experience.
