Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had to vacation the last week of April due to different schedules, but it was the perfect time to go. The house was everything and more than we imagined. We felt at home at this house and the owners were so helpful. The golf cart made going to the beach so easy. Honestly, I can't think of one single thing I would change about that place. I would recommend this house to anyone who loves to vacation in Destin like my family does. No more condos for us!!! We will definitely rent this house again and I can hardly wait.

We all love it here.

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming many years and all of us love this home. We enjoyed the beach service this year which was made available by the owners of the home. The owners are very enjoyable to talk with and easy to reach if you have any problems. Will be back again next year.

Met all our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with lovely furnishings and high-end appliances. My family greatly enjoyed our stay here. It felt like a home away-from-home. The pool is a wonderful additions which we enjoyed very much. Even though we were 2 blocks from the beach, it was a quick walk and the golf cart was a real treat to go back and forth. It was also nice to be so close the shopping and eating. We will consider staying here again!

Thank you for a great vacation!

Beautiful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 18 stayed here for a week in August and it accommodated each of us perfectly. The sleeping arrangements worked out very well and the beds were very comfortable. We are a family that likes to cook which the kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed. The pool and hot tub were a lot of fun, as well as the golf cart! I was one of the four individuals who stayed in carriage house, which was also very accommodating and private. I have never been to Destin, Florida before but would love to return and stay at this house again. Even the neighbor said it was one of the nicest houses around and has the most renters, which definitely says a lot!

Wonderful family vacation.

Well stocked home, nice pool, great floor plan for family with kids. Awesome master bathrooms! Golf cart and chairs on the beach with umbrellas were a big plus. Owner made herself available by phone for questions, problems and promptly replied.

Great location and spacious. Pool is great!

  • 4 of 5

Scotta was great to work with. The house had space for our group of 10 adults and 6 kids. Golf cart and Beach concierge service also a plus. Had to deal with some repair issues but appreciated that all was well communicated. We had a great week with family.
