  • Great Location

    "Our family came to the Destin area last minute, and we were very pleased with this last minute find. There was plenty of room for our BIG family. It was so nice to have four bathrooms with the four bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies and the beach access was practically right across the road. We spent a lot of time at the beach and hanging out in the main living space cooking and visiting. Our only complaint was that the floor seemed rather dirty. I imagine it is hard to keep the floor in a beach house clean, but it would have been nice to have a wet mop of some kind to clean the floors ourselves. There were a couple of brooms, but a wet mop would have been nice. Also, it would be nice to have a key code entry instead of the two keys. With so many people staying in one condo we had to plan accordingly, so that people would have a key to get back inside."

  • Beautiful Villa

    "Our stay at the Pineapple House was great! Having our own private pool was very nice! The 5 minute walk to the beach was easy and the owners did have a wagon and some chairs. Both the main house and the guest house were comfortable, plenty of space and had everything that we needed. Some of the bedrooms did not have any dressers but there was plenty of closet space and shelves in each bedroom. My family and I had a great time at the Pineapple House!"

  • Great getaway!

    "My family really enjoyed out getaway this past weekend! We were really happy with this unit and it worked perfectly for our family of 4. I appreciated how easy the booking was and the communications from Panhandle Getaways. I downloaded the app and had all the information I needed -- from check in / out instructions, door code, directions, etc. I really appreciated how seemless and easy that made the process. The unit itself was really nice and had everything we needed. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, kitchen is fully stocked and I knew right where to look for anything I needed. We loved having a grill outside on the back patio! The complex was nice and quiet, and the pools were nearby. We had too much fun at the beach so didn't venture to the pools, but I loved knowing that the option was there if needed. The location was great. It was easy to get to the beach and could be walked, though we chose to drive since we had 2 little ones and lots of toys. The public beach parking was easy (if you arrived early in the day), and I really liked being so close to the bath house...definitely a winner with the kids! Walking would have been easier if a cart was provided to help carry beach stuff. There were a few boogie boards in the unit, but not a huge selection of beach items to borrow. Since we drove down we didn't have a huge amount of room for chairs, tent/umbrella, etc so ended up renting them on the beach, which was really easy. In late September, it was $30/day and I believe was $40/day in the summer. There were 2 recommendations we had for the unit. The first would be a slight rearrangement of the living room furniture. As it is now, the sofa is against the same wall where the TV sits in the corner unit. So, it wasn't really easy/comfortable to sit on the sofa and watch TV. There were additional chairs, but just shifting the sofa to face the TV would make a world of difference. Secondly, many of the lights in the unit are flourescents and when turned on they start dim and then get brighter after a few minutes. This sometimes made it difficult to tell if you flipped the correct switch if you couldn't tell that the light was on, and once bright, flourescent lights can be harsh on the eyes. It took a little while for us to figure out the best combination of lighting to minimize the flourescents and make the lighting comfortable. Again, simple changes that could easily add some additional comfort levels."

  • Perfect!

    "My husband and I and our teenage son and his friend stayed in this condo and it was perfect. Especially the location. Right on the beach. Not across the road from the beach and not in a huge highrise with thousands of other people. Our beach area was never crowded. It was just the condo guests. Plenty of room. The condo had plenty of chairs and umbrellas and even floaties for us to use. We enjoyed each day!"
