Loved this roomy, relaxing, kid-friendly home w/ great pool, and so close to the beach!
"Our family, including two daughters and their families, returned from vacation at Down by the Sea a couple of weeks ago and we all agree it was the best house we've stayed in at the beach. So roomy and so relaxing! Lots of room to put your beach/pool "things" without them getting in the way. This house is clean and well taken care of, with the feel of a personal home, rather than a well-used rental. My family, especially the grandchildren, absolutely loved the great pool, with the shallow area for little ones. So nice to have the covered porch for the baby and a shower to rinse off after the beach. We appreciated not having to haul baby equipment and it was wonderful to have the quiet crib room. The beds were all super comfy and bedrooms had plenty of room, particularly the second floor master - huge! The beach was close and easy to get to, even with little ones. Craig and Dodie were so nice to work with and really gave it that personal touch. They really care! Thank you!"

"We had a wonderful time staying in this unit. I will agree with everyone else by saying the pictures don't do it justice! Comfortable couches, nice kitchen with everything right at your fingertips. the drawers are stocked with every utensil. We loved that there were beach chairs and a cart to take to the beach. Also there were board games in closets and extra towels and sheets. A very short walk to the beach 2-3 min maybe. I loved the location, I plan to come to this area again next year and would love to stay here again. I only wished we had a better view of the pool since the palm trees were blocking it. And I will also say the master bed could use an updated mattress. Everything else was perfect!!! Thank you 💙"

"My group of 15 and I came here for the first time this August. The house is amazing! The beach themed decor made the house more beautiful and enjoyable for us. They were even nice enough to provide us with swimming toys/gear in the trunk by the outside sitting area. I was also impressed by the 2nd kitchen upstairs (which was filled with all sorts of dishes and pans for us to use).The house is also very close to the beach and that made traveling easier for us. My family and friends hope to come back here next time!"

"This was our 8th year vacationing in Destin and our second year staying in Connie's vacation home and I can't say enough positive things about our experience. She goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is nothing less than perfect. Her home is so beautifully decorated and has everything you need for your stay...it truly felt like home! It is a perfect location with a short walk to the beach with restaurants and grocery stores within a mile. Our kids loved having the pool right outside the condo...it was always a perfect ending to their day at the beach. We would highly recommend this home for your Destin vacation."
