Broad Reach met our every need even in the first tropical storm of the season. We were close enough to the beautiful beach, Sand Destin shopping, local markets and restaurants and plenty of golf courses to keep the men happy! The pool was clean and the screened back porch was wonderful. Lots of memories made on our 2018 family vacation.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Broad Reach. We love it. The only change we would recommend is replacing the queen bed with a king so that there is true 2nd master. Our party consisted of 2 adult couples and 6 kids. 2 of the biggest bonuses for us are that no 2 bedrooms share a wall, so privacy is never an issue. The other is that the entire floodplain is on a single floor. No upstairs racket keeping you awake. Of course the proximity to the beach is amazing and because the access is within the small community, it is practically private; no crowds.

Hard to Beat

  • 5 of 5

Terrific location and great house. We had 7 adults/kids and there was plenty of room even on a rainy day. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach - hard to beat.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

Gulf Trace is our favorite vacation spot and Broad Reach is our new favorite vacation home. We have been coming to Gulf Trace twice a year for 5 years now and Broad Reach is one of the best homes we've been lucky enough to stay in. It was close to the beach and had everything our family needed. We can't wait to return this August!

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Broad Reach and it does not disappoint. House is well appointed, clean, has ample room for two families and is a quick walk to the beach! We love the location- close enough to the action of Destin but in a quiet kid-friendly neighborhood with a quiet beach. Favorite places nearby are Buddy's ice cream and the Local Catch. A drive to Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach is a fun outing.

Had a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my family and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious and afforded members of our group some privacy as there is a central living and dining area with bedrooms off into the various corners of the residence. It is a close 3-4 minute walk to the beach and the beach is spectacular. Beautiful water and white powdery sand. Easy access to area shopping outlets in Destin as well as area restaurants. Recommend a short drive over to Seaside to see this unique little resort area but this place provides more beach privacy and less crowds. Located in a nice private neighborhood away from the crowds if that's your thing.
