"First of all, as far as I am concerned, Destin is the premier coastline/beach area in Florida. And having a house on a street, versus a condo on the 4th floor, for example, was a wonderful way to experience the area for me. The house is everything the reviewers said it was and more. The fact that the owner (Molly) takes dogs gives it a "sixth" star in my book.
Yes, it is older, but Molly keeps it in excellent condition. The only thing in need of upgrading may be the electrical outlets, but that was not a significant problem. This 2 bedroom house, with sit in, screened porch and large back yard, is a block from the miles-long, white sand beach and green-blue gulf in a secluded section of both homes, rentals and condos. It is in walking distance from retail heaven! The house is located between scenic highway 98 and business 98, so it remains tucked away from the "hubbub", but yet very accessible to everything you might need. Within walking distance is a huge Bass Pro shop, a movie theater and all the stores and restaurants you can handle. By auto, it is only 40 minutes to Pensacola to the west and 50 minutes to the very popular Panama City Beach. The airport is not far and medical care is close as well.
Back to the house-we stayed there off season (Jan.-Feb.) and it was wonderfully quiet at night. The house also has a brand new washer and dryer off the 2nd bedroom. And, you don't have to bring much in the way of household items-Molly provides more than enough!!
She was always available by cell for answers to questions and her Mom, Kathy, lives behind the house if we needed anything immediate, which we never did. All in all, it was a memorable experience. I would recommend this home and it's owner to anyone who would enjoy the
the experience of "living" in Destin, Florida."
