About Charles Barone

Welcome to our VRBO site.....

We fell absolutely in love with Destin on a visit a few years ago. Being from Buffalo,NY, we definitely need to get away during the winter months... I'm getting to old for 150" of snow and sub zero temps from December to March.

With that said, we know what we expect when we need a great place to vacation at.....LARGE POOL, GRILLING AREA, WATER VIEW, ENTERTAINMENT, BIG KITCHEN/DINING AREAS, ENOUGH BEDROOMS TO ACCOMMODATE 30+ PEOPLE....

When we saw SPLASH, I couldn't believe my had everything we wished for.

Being a builder back home, I'm critical of everyone's work, but this house was built PERFECT .... it's truly a masterpiece!!

Being the owner/operator, our hearts are in your stay.... we want you to have the best vacation experience at SPLASH . I'm accessible all of the time and available to speak with you personally from the moment you make your first inquiry about SPLASH.

We look forward to hosting your group soon!

Cheers 😎🌴🍸

Best we have experienced

  • 5 of 5

Chuck's rental property was super. Our party consisted of 10 adults and 9 kids. We loved the large pool with several depths .. almost separate places for groups of kids and adults. The area around the house and pool provided the opportunity for some of us to get some sun apart from others in the group. The area behind the pool is really quite spacious. The large grill was super, as was the outside bar and TV areas. and many of us enjoyed the foosball and pool table. Inside, the bedrooms were good size to very spacious, and having separate bathrooms for each bed room was great. With several larger outside balconies, there was some quiet space for everyone. The second floor kitchen, dining room and living room areas were very spacious. And the larger fridge, freezer and wine cooler were just what a larger group needs. With the three washers and dryers, we were able to easily keep everyone in clean clothes. Back to the kitchen, we had a kids' table and an adults' table for dining, enabling each group to talk and have fun. The location is within two miles of most shopping folks would do.

We had a great time, and would highly recommend Splash!

simply amazing, in every conceivable way possible.

  • 5 of 5

Trying to explain how cool this place is, is like trying to explain a Kaleidoscope to a blind man. the house simply defies description in that its is perfect in every sense of the word.

the house is roomy, comfortable, and immaculate, built for comfort. The views of the gulf are amazing from the front, and the pool rivals any Vegas Hotel pool. Trust me. Whatever you spend on this home will be long forgotten with the memories you will make here. This was a vacation of a lifetime, and we created memories that will live forever.

You can rent this home with absolute confidence. Chuck painstakingly cares for his guests and makes sure their every need is met. When you combine this property with an owner as committed to the guests experience. its a beautiful thing. Thanks chuck for a wonderful stay. Just overwhelming how great this house was for our group.

Absolutely fantastic home

Almost closer to a resort than a home. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Would be comfortable for small group or huge gathering. Will be back the next chance we get.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing !! This is definitely my lottery dream home. The swimming pool is breathtaking, jacuzzi whirlpool and swim up bar. There are 3 floors including an elevator where we put our luggage on and sent it up to the sleeping areas on floors 2 & 3. Once we saw the interior of this mansion, we were speechless. There was no reason to ever leave the was fully equipped with screen tv’s, kitchen utensils and extra large kitchen area, game room, overlooking the beach and beautiful sunsets at night. The owners Chuck and Lori were wonderful. We got to meet them during our stay and were very attentive to any needs that we may have had. We are already planning our next visit !! This was truly our home away from home !!!
