  • Wonderful Family Vacation!

    "Let me preface this by saying that I have been to several beaches and vacationed in Hawaii previously and the beaches with Destin might beat Hawaii. My family and I ventured to Destin from Kansas on our first family vacation. I have two children so the condo worked out perfectly from a space perspective. The view from this unit is absolutely breathtaking and I could be found sitting out on the balcony early in the morning watching the sun come up with a nice cup of coffee. The location of the complex was absolutely perfect. It is tucked back behind rental homes and trees so their is privacy, but it is a short walk to main road in Destin with several options for food, groceries, and shopping very close. The location was also great for us as a family with small children. We did not want to be right in the heart of Destin and wanted a less crowded beach. Every morning the beach attendants set up your chairs with umbrella and if you get down their early you can pick a prime location. By day two they remembered our unit and reserved the same space for us every day. The beaches are white sandy and the water is so clear blue. We did drive to the busy part of Destin a couple times and each time commented how grateful we were that we picked the Windancer. At night the condo was filled with families playing in the pool, grilling and watching the sunset. No parties, no rude people, everyone cleaned up their messes each evening. Grounds keepers were good about going around next morning and making sure everything was good as well. Michelle was an absolute joy to work with and I would rent from her again and again. We can't wait to go back to Destin and will definitely use Michelle and this unit again!"

  • An unforgettable getaway!

    "Here is my review: Our family of six had an amazing vacation in beautiful Miramar Beach. From the time I contacted the owner of this amazing home, I received exemplary service. In addition, all of the communication with "Ocean Reef Vacation Rentals & Real Estate" was fantastic as well. We were thrilled that we could stay in this incredible home. The house has everything you would need and more, with it being extremely well maintained. The beds and pillows are very comfortable! Our family loved the layout of the home and it's charm! I enjoyed my morning coffee on the adorable balcony. The courtyard setting, complete with palm trees and a crystal blue swimming pool was a favorite of ours. (I have to mention the lights on the pool in the evening can change colors and this was so incredibly fun for our little ones, and older ones!) We ate breakfast and lunch poolside several times. There is so much to see and do in this area of Florida. The homeowners have several complimentary recommendations for their house guests and we tried several that did have amazing food and ambiance. I found a couple grocery stores very close by that I particularly liked and was able to cook several meals in the homes amazing kitchen. It had everything I needed. The gas grill was wonderful too! You could just stay put in this home and be perfectly content. Another wonderful aspect of this home is how close it is to the beach. I thought I would need a stroller for our 2 year old but I didn't, it is so close! As you walk onto the gazebo before you touch the crystal white sand, the view is absolutely breathtaking. I witnessed several sunrises and sunsets and could not get enough of God's creation. The beach was very private, never busy and very clean. Our family enjoyed the pristine view of the emerald coast so much we decided to have our photos taken on the beach. Ocean Reef had some recommendations I would encourage you to try, "Pure 7 Studios" for instance. We settled on "Lyndon's Photos" and they were absolutely wonderful to work with. I received our photos and they were amazing! We sincerely thank and appreciate the kind and thoughtful homeowners. Our warmest regards to the homeowners for having us!"

  • Gorgeous Villa with amazing furnishings...

    "Villa Paradis was just that....an amazing paradise home with outstanding high end furnishings and wonderful owner and management team. I would recommend this rental to anyone who is looking to stay in the Destin Miramar Beach area. The views from the 2 balconies were amazing of the gorgeous grounds and oversized lagoon swimming pool where we spent most of our time with our 2 daughters and 2 grandkids. The lay out of the Villa was ideal for our needs as my daughter and her 2 children shared the downstairs bedrooms while my husband and I and our other grown daughter shared the upstairs bedrooms. The master suite and bath is beyond amazing and the beds were so comfortable....we loved the fact that every room had a fantastic TV and setup for movies. Thanks again for this exceptional rental. The only drawback was that there is no elevator and climbing the stairs is not for the faint of heart. I suffer from back problems so it was somewhat hard for me."

  • Family Vacation

    "My family enjoyed a wonderful vacation during our stay at Miramar Beach rental. The rental was very spacious and more than we expected. We had a family of 10 and everyone had their on space and everyone was very comfortable. We had one person in a wheelchair due to an injury and there was enough space for the wheelchair and the rest of the family. The rental was beautiful and very clean. The bedrooms we comfortable and everyone was very relaxed and rested. The kitchen and living room was perfect for a wonderful family vacation. The pools and the beach were more than enjoyable. Every family member made wonderful memories, together and alone. There was shopping and attractions within walking distance. We would recommend this rental to everyone."
