  • Destin vacation in September

    "Arrived on Saturday and were able to get in early, which was a help that day. Had 4 family members and an infant coming to check in early. The house was as advertised. Clean, appointed well and laid out well for a larger group. Only had 7 total and had plenty of room. The carriage house was perfect for the daughter, husband and infant baby. Gave them the privacy that they wanted and no crying baby in the middle of the night for the rest of the group. All bedrooms had TV's, nice furniture and the bathrooms were very nice. The deck is extremely large and worked great as we had 6 more people over that first night to watch the Tennessee/Virginia Tech game. For some reason the pool was set on SPA setting and the water was 103 degrees. It took a couple of days getting that down to a livable 88 degrees for dips when you take a break from the beach. No big deal. It is right sized and a nice break in the afternoon as it is shaded after about 3pm. There were 4 chaise loungers for laying out and one 4 top table with umbrella, also a 6 top table, still had plenty of room with that much furniture. The deck floor will need some updates and the deck furniture upgrded soon soon, but it worked fine for us. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything that you would need, plus an ice marker which was very nice for the group in filling coolers and making cocktails. Location is very central to shopping and 10-15 minutes from "downtown" Destin. We have rented homes on the beach in Hilton Head, Fripp Island and now Destin and this was just as nice or nicer than those locations. I really liked the check in which is seamless and so easy. Honestly, from booking the house, receiving the information, paying the deposit and balance, and checking out, i did not talk to a single person. Completely seamless again. Not that I do not like to talk to people, just was so easy. I would definitly recommend this house for large groups, families, etc... Just loved the entire experience."

  • FABULOUS condo....great location and just my style😄

    "We stayed in Empress 904 the first week in May 2016. My husband and I felt at home as soon as we walked in. It was beautifully decorated with some beautiful art work, appropriate for an upscale Florida beachfront condo. I love that it felt like Florida versus decorated like a regular, any state place. The views and balconies were absolutely wonderful, beach on one side and Lake Stewart on the other. All of the rooms were large ,spacious and beautifully decorated. We loved the attached bathrooms with each of the 3 bedrooms as our grown son and his family joined us for a few days. The master bedroom had a very comfortable king bed which we slept well on. My son said the queen bed was too hard for him. Twin beds were great for the children. We also liked having a spearate larger laundry room that we could put the beach gear in. The kitchen was well stocked and had my favorite cutting knives😄򑀊If we critique anything, it would be that the coffee pot was a drippy thing that made a mess every time we poured and the TV on the oceanside(there are two separate sitting areas) has a very poor, tinny sound. The one one the lakeside was great! On a housekeeping note, more than one refill trash bag is needed in the kitchen.With all the glass tabletops, I had a hard time cleaning up with only a wet paper towel, wish there was some windex. Also, it seemed the floors were not cleaned well as our feet were ALWAYS very dirty soon after a shower. We hope to be able to revisit 904 again soon for a longer stay as it is close to good shopping and restaurants. We had friends visit and they were as impressed as we were. It Is always so nice to feel at home quickly, knowing that everything you need is right there."

  • Awesome Condo!

    "This Condo was perfect. We stayed there July 16-July 23, 2016. The owner of this unit provided everything that you could possibly ask for. From all the beach items needed to kitchen needs. The balcony was larger than others in the complex. Plenty of room to have a nice dinner on the outside table. The view was the best. My husband was not a fan of the beach before but now he was so disappointed to have to leave. He was already trying to think of when we can came back. If you get a chance, rent a boat and go to Crab Island! Paradise.. Joan Wilsey"

  • Wonderful Beach House!

    "Our family of 7 adults and 2 small grand-children spent our vacation at Cape Monaco this year. What a fabulous place! Right on the beach, with a beautiful deck to relax and enjoy the sunset. This house is a perfect location, smack in the middle of everything that you could need. We were only there two days before I contacted the owner about booking again for next year. It honestly feels like home! Kids absolutely loved it and you walk out your door and on to the beach. The owners are lovely people that are so kind and gracious. I would highly recommend that you consider a week at Cape Monaco."
