  • Great time had by all!

    "This BEAUTIFUL home was the perfect beach vacation spot for a house of 10! Only complaint are the mattresses especially in the first floor master bedroom needs to desperately be changed but besides that I would absolutely recommend someone to stay as long as they can at this amazing house!"

  • Amazing family vacation spot

    "This house is outstanding. Very spacious and clean and well-pointed home with the added fun of a private pool and pool table. The pool does not get a lot of direct sunlight (between about 11am and 1pm) which is great if you have small children and want to keep them protected from the sun some during the day. The walk to the beach is very easy (we made it no problem every day with a 3 and 5 year old). The neighborhood is gated with very little to no traffic, so very safe for families. The beach is private so there's plenty of room to play and spread out, even during the busiest seasons. It's a nice departure from the dense crowds of Destin's public beaches. I would definitely recommend the beach chair service - it made things so much easier for us! There are a couple restaurants within walking distance of the property, and the main parts of Destin with entertainment and restaurants is a very short and easy drive away. We were highly satisfied with our stay and would absolutely recommend to families or adult groups."

  • Great house

    "We loved staying here. We talked about booking it again for next year. Very short walk to beach. Very short walk to pool. Heater does not get turned on until end of October so pool was very cold early October. Lots of space inside. Lots of beds and bathrooms. Note that website says it has a stroller - we never found one. It said pack n plays - we only found one. It had 5 bikes in the garage. 2 were for kids but no training wheels or helmets. It had 2 blow up boats and very little beach sand toys so you will want to bring your own. Owners provided 2 garbage bags, 1 roll of paper towels, 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom, and a bar of soap and hotel size shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom. You will want to bring your own beach towels. The kitchen had everything we needed/ wanted except a waffle maker, but we didn't expect them to have one. Lots of stairs but wasn't a major problem for us and we had a 19 month old."

  • Location was PERFECT!!

    "From day 1, all I could really say was "staying in a house ON the beach is totally worth it!" I love the ocean, but being from a land-locked state, get a bit weary of the hassle. NO MORE dragging snorkle gear & boogie boards from a hot parking lot -and getting BACK in that car after a long day of sun, sand, & salt!! The house was great & the beach was NOT crowded - just looking down shore at the public beaches made us realize how blessed we truly were. We had our OWN section of the beach with umbrellas & chairs that DIDN'T fall over (and have to be dragged, sand encrusted, back to my vehicle!) The water was crystal-clear & gorgeous. We had 3 generations: 3 adult couples and 7 kids (8 was the youngest) - plus our Great Dane and my in-laws' Pomeranian (no dogs on the beach, in Destin, though). There was plenty of room in the common spaces, and nice bedrooms when we wanted more privacy. The small community was gated & had security, so the kids could ride bikes, go crabbing, and walk the dogs with no worries. Destin Commons was a short drive away for shopping & some Kilwin's ice cream. 🍧 Walmart, Whole Foods, and Fresh Market (yay) were all close. We were close to Destin proper, but not in the horrid city traffic. 😄 We watched dolphin many times and saw a turtle from our deck. We got to swim with rays and saw a striped burr fish one time -right there. You can rent paddle boards & kayaks 40 yards from your beach chairs, and the house garage contains many boogie boards, inflatables and 2 bikes for guests to use. The convenience is AWESOME! I can't recommend this home highly enough -especially for the price. Michael is fantastic, and will make you feel like welcomed guests to his home."
