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 eyes....it 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 😎🌴🍸

Better than we ever imagined!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the best place we've ever stayed, ridiculous house, unbelievable views,amazing pool that Trumps most resort pools I've ever seen. The best thing about this place is the owners! They went above and beyond what we ever expected. They made sure our wedding and vacation at the house was the Best week of our lives! The look on our guests faces when they walk into the Splash house priceless. Everything at the house is top notch and they didn't skimp on a single thing there. Thank you so much Chuck and Lori, we can't wait to book for next year!!

Splach made a bad weather week a lot better

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house. With a house this big there is always little things you are going to find that needs addressing. And the owner, Chuck, jumped on them right away. The pool is great and the house is very nice. The only thing I heard negative from our stay, and this is very minor, is a couple of the wifes said the kitchen utensils needed updated/was lacking a little. But I know things seem to grow legs and disapear with rentals. I did not here excatly what items they were talking about, sorry. But don't let this keep you from staying here. This is truley a five star house. And I'm sure Chuck will address this a soon as he sees this.

Owner's Response: Mark… Thank you for taking the time to write a review. And you are right, most of our utensils find legs and disappear… Every month or so we have to replenish and it sounds like it's time to do it again. Thanks for being helpful and treating the house as if it was yours… Your input was invaluable. I wish I could have controlled the weather but it sounds like the game room came in handy and the pool and outdoor areas made this a great stay. Please feel free to call me anytime and I look forward to hosting you and your group again in the near future. Your friend , Chuck

Absolutely Stunning & Amazing Vacation Home/Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

I am familiar with the Destin area and was looking for a house for our destination wedding. When I saw the photos of the Splash house I knew this was the house we had to rent for our wedding trip! One thing I liked about this rental was that 7 days isn't required nor is Saturday-Saturday, which is often the case in Destin with a house this large. Due to the flexibility that the owners offers it makes The Splash even better! The owner Chuck is an amazing owner and host. He truly wants his guests to have the best possible experience and believe me we definitely did, it is a trip that will be talked about for decades! We booked over a year in advance and any messages or calls we sent to him he responded to right away, he is an amazing and very accommodating owner and host. He truly wants his guests to have the best possible experience and we did!

We had just 17 adults staying in the house and we were usually either outside or in the kitchen and the house never felt crowded in the slightest! Even during our wedding night it still didn't feel crowded at all. The house is immaculate and gorgeous! Everyone was blown away by the house and the pool. I mean a swim up bar all to yourself....wow! This pool has so much room to hang out in and the hot tub was awesome! The house roof top 4th floor gives you an amazing view of sunsets or sunrises. There are tons of balconies, 3 sets of washers and dryers, an enormous kitchen with everything you can imagine in it, an elevator, the most spectacular outdoor living space and the house is right across the street from the most beautiful beach in the country!

The only downfall of the Splash house is feeling like you don't want to leave to go to the beach or dinner or anything, I mean why leave when you have such an amazing place! At the end of our trip when we left the house I felt really sad to be leaving such an amazing house and we really hope we stay at The Splash again one day soon! Thank you Chuck and Lori for sharing/renting your home, we loved and cherish every minute we had there :)

Perfect Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

Splash was the perfect wedding venue! The layout of the house works so well for many reasons. We had the Welcome BBQ outside in the pool area and our guests were thrilled! 60 people in that backyard doesn't feel crowded at all. Guests enjoyed the Game Room and all had a great time. We limited folks from going into the house that evening as that's where we were going to have the reception dinner and wanted it to be impactful when first seen. The third floor open room area with access to another great deck was perfect for the bridal party to get hair and makeup completed. So much was going on at the house, yet the girls were in their own world up there having a great time. The second floor was transformed into a beautiful dinner reception area. Lots of white table linens and beautiful flowers enhanced that gorgeous view! The huge island also draped in linens provided for a lovely buffett presentation. While the home itself is decorated beautifully, we added our own personal decor to bring quaintness to the venue. Guests were simply blown away as they entered for dinner! Dancing and partying under the evening skies back outside couldn't have been better with the very large bar area, dance floor space, and lounging area behind the pool. We situated furniture back there to create outdoor living room space lighted with battery candles (no risk of fire), so that guests could take a break from dancing and relax. The location is also perfect for that beach wedding ceremony. We invited all to a preceremony cocktail hour, then had a procession to the beach where we'd had a company set chairs and an arbor. Guests WALKED to the beach in less than 5 minutes (well in fairness, some drove the 1 minute drive), to enjoy the perfection of the sugar sand beach ceremony. Then walked back to enjoy the festivities. As MOB (mom of the bride) and also UWP (unpaid wedding planner), I can say we picked the perfect home for the wedding! The only downside is that is all goes by soooooo fast!

Side note: The elevator came in very handy for the Grandmas!!

Thank you Chuck for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

Stunning home with fabulous amenities situated right across from the beach, what could be better!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this beautiful, spacious home with 7 families and 32 people total! There was plenty of room for all of us, even if we were in one area together, which we often were. The pool area was awesome. We had 18 kids with us ranging in age from 18 down to 10 and I don't know who enjoyed this space more; the kids our we adults! The house is beautifully furnished and so spacious. We each had a bedroom to ourselves and we had 10 boys together in the bunk room. Each and every inch of the home was used and enjoyed. The kitchen was massive and this was a group that cooked a lot so we enjoyed the beautiful kitchen immensely. We'd sit at the tables and play games. The kids watched movies en-masse in the living room. Every balcony had people on it and enjoying the view from sun up to sun down; my husband and I saw dolphins almost on the daily off our balcony! One of the dishwashers was a little quirky when we first tried using it and the onsite manager was awesome. He came right over and tended to the issue. He also helped one of our group retrieve a forgotten suitcase! The last 4 guests to leave the house, one of which was me, had a chance to meet the husband-wife owner team and they couldn't have been more down to earth and humble. We all agreed that this vacation was made BECAUSE of this property!
