Guestbook comments from the owner

Vince and Meryl,

I just wanted to say "Thank you" from my family to you for opening your home to us for the week of June 21-28,2008.

We all had a wonderful time and came back to Arkansas with a refreshed feeling.

Your home was warm and peaceful which made our stay that much more enjoyable.

God bless you both and if it is possible maybe we'll see each other again next year.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our two sons and their families just returned from a magical week in Destin. The house on Terra Cotta Way was perfect for us. Each family had their own bedroom/bath--great privacy for moments we wanted to ourselves. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the entire house was spotless. There were even a high chair and Pack-n-Play for the baby! Vince and Meryl Fritz were quick to respond to questions we had both prior to departure and during our stay. Loved being so close to the beach and to the pool! Would very much enjoy staying here again.

Nice but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

Our experience with a Touch of Paradise was a bit different than the other reviews. Altogether, we had a great time while in Destin. The house is in great shape and clean, the pool is LITERALLY right across the street and very convenient, the location is very convenient to walk to restaurants and walk to the beach (although more than 1/2 a block) and Vincent and Meryl are VERY nice and accommodating - but we would probably not stay here again. We were a group of 10 with 2 small children.

None of us have ever had a rental owner contact us so many times during a stay, or meet us to go over all the particulars. We were greeted by both Vincent and Meryl, who proceeded to tell us a few random things about the house that they could have easily written in a welcome packet, and during their 30 minutes there, told multiple family members to make sure the kids ate at the table - which was covered in a clear plastic table cloth.

None of the linens matched, and the towels were all very random. Some even with bleach stains. There were no bathmats.

The couches were covered in pretty unattractive slip covers which didn't stay on the couch very well. All in all, it didn't exactly look like the pictures, and seemed like maybe they were concerned about having children there, which was not very welcoming.

It should be noted that one of the bedrooms is on the bottom floor, and has no windows, so it's a little bit like being in a dungeon with a very small bathroom. Of the three twin beds that were available, only one of them is a true mattress. One is an old cot with a twin futon mattress on it (not comfortable) and the other one was possibly a large leather coffee table that they put some padding over to create the look of a twin, I couldn't quite figure it out. It wasn't until I actually slept on it that I realized that it wasn't an actual mattress.

There are a few things that were missed with amenities such as: no Tupperware to store any leftovers if you were cooking, very little wine glasses (not enough to cover 7 adults at one time), no table and chairs for the top balcony, and none of the beds had headboards.

We understand that it is a rental, but it needs a little more love put into the decor to make it feel more inviting and comfortable. A little updating would make a huge improvement.

Also, the walk to the beach, although not THAT far away, is still a bit of a trek with little kids and doesn't have an accessible restroom.

Owner's Response: Dear guests, Please note that all our previous reviews for over 11 years are very positive. Glad to hear from this guest that our house was clean, in great shape and that we were nice! We wish this guest had notified us of any problem so that we could have addressed them immediately. They got their full damage deposit back. We LOVE children, we have 2 wonderful Grandsons of our own!! Our linens are always clean! We are putting 2 new Twin beds in our home this week. Previous guests told us they love the slipcovers and will buy some for their own homes because they protect the furniture when there are spills. This way they get their Full damage deposit back! If guests don't like them they can easily remove them. We added more wine glasses & Tupperware for the kitchen and more chairs for the top balcony. We personally meet our guests for 10-15 min. to give information on the pool, beach, tennis courts & how the gas grill etc. work. 99% Of our guests appreciate that plus the midweek call to see if everything is ok. Any issues that are communicated are handled immediately. Thank you, Vince and Meryl

Perfect Location for the Beach

  • 4 of 5

A Touch of Paradise provided a great place for our family to spend a week at the beach. The location is great -- a short walk to the beach and directly across from the community swimming pool. The neighborhood was quiet in the evenings. We even enjoyed the daily visit from the "goody cart" in the afternoons. Vince was very accommodating and made sure everything was going well for us. This section of the beach is fantastic for all ages!

Great beach house for my family of 8!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Destin every few years and now that our children are married, we were looking for a 4 bedroom to give each couple privacy. The house is located very close to the beach and convenient to shopping and restaurants. It is clean and well-maintained. Pool is literally right across the street and we took advantage of the volleyball and tennis courts. Our stay was wonderful and we highly recommend it to other families looking for room for couples. Also each bedroom has its own bathroom.
