Beautiful modern home with gulf view and private pool

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and spacious with open floor plan and spacious bedrooms with private baths in all but 1 of the 5 bedrooms. We had 10 in our party including 3 married couples, 2 infants and 84 year old grandmother. The pool was fabulous and well worth the extra $ to have it heated during our stay. The location is ideal with gulf view and a very short easy walk to the beach. Beach area was clean and not crowded. There are no high rises in the immediate area. 4 chairs with umbrellas and 4 bicycles were included with house rental which was great. We did have some issues with the dishwasher and the freezer but the 5 Star Property managers did replace the dishwasher, provide us with ice and a cooler, and compensated us with a dinner out and a round of putt putt golf. They were very apologetic and accommodating. I would rent this house and from Five Star again.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was pretty amazing. Beautifully built with large windows that allow you to see the gulf from anywhere in the house. It was also in a great location not too far along 30A, which made it easy to get to Sandestin. The beach was just right across the street. Loved the private pool too! We got it heated since it was beginning of march and it worked very well. Would highly recommend this house to anyone who visits 30A. The company who manages it (five star) was also very friendly and helpful, and this was truly a 5 star house!

What a gorgeous house!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I and our kids really enjoyed this house. Its a beautiful home with lots of windows and gulf views from every floor. It was in a good location that was out of the busy areas but still just a walk or bike ride to restaurants and shopping. The Timpoochie Trail that runs the length of 30A is right outside the home and we really enjoyed biking on the bikes that were provided to us by Five Star Rentals. The pool was actually larger then it looked in the pictures. We opted for the pool heat and so glad we did. The kids stayed in it most of the time. The pool heat was not turned on when we first arrived that evening but after speaking to the Guest Relations manager at Five Star the pool vendor was out there the next day to get it turned on for us. I like that we could reach them anytime for any issues. I would definitely recommend Looking Glass and we can't wait to come back!

To ensure pool heat is turned on in a timely manner, we encourage guests to request it at least 24 hours prior to arrival. If this was the case, we sincerely apologize that we did not have it turned on for you in time but are happy to hear our staff was quick in getting it turned on for you! It is our goal to provide a five-star experience for all of our guests by providing beautiful rentals, top service, and great amenities! Thank you for taking the time to leave us a positive review.
