Wonderful House!

The house was so nice. Better than the pictures shown. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. The home owners and property manager were very nice and answered any questions we had. Great people to work with. The house was within a five minute walk to the beach and the backyard pool was a plus for us.

Destin Florida Rental

The house was really nice, clean, well-supplied and we had a great time on our visit to Destin. Property management was excellent too.

Beautiful Home, Walking Distance to Beach

We were 3 families, 8 people. This four bedroom house worked out nicely. The home is lovely and the service and responsiveness of both Sherry & Mike (homeowners) and the local support (Kastle Keepers) was "above & beyond". There are several good restaurants right nearby and there are several supermarkets within a 5-minute drive. The pool is a good size, and there's a gas grill outside that makes it easy to prepare a relaxing meal. We took advantage of the kitchen, too, to keep eating-out costs down. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you'd need. It also is note-worthy that the mattresses in this house were all exceptionally comfortable - a rarity in rental houses!

VERY ENJOYABLE VACATION WITH GRANDKIDS

This is a beautiful 4 bedroom house, that makes one immediately feel at home. Very clean and well maintained. Beautiful pool for grandkids to swim in. Short walk to the most beautiful sandy beach we have seen and we've been to a number of beaches around the country. Follow up by Sherry was on time and complete. She was very helpful in tips where to go and what to do. They are great hosts. I recommend property highly. Norm and Helen

Best Fall Break Vaca!

This property was wonderful for our fall break vacation! We plan to book the same place for 2014! The house was comfortable for two families, and having our own private pool was worth every penny!

Owner's reply:

Thanks Christa! We look forward to having you back next year.

Great for families with young children

The house is in a gated community, very close to the beach (walking distance) in a very quiet neighborhood yet central to restaurants and shops. The house is very well-maintained and Sherry was immediately responsive to any questions we had - very helpful with sharing information about Destin so that we felt very comfortable upon arrival, knowing where to go to get groceries, good places to eat, etc. Our 2 little ones loved the pool in the backyard (so did we) and it was great to be able to come home and relax and cook on the grill after a day at the beach. The house is fully-stocked and has everything you need. The Shrimp Basket was a favorite restaurant and we found a gym close by so that we could still workout although morning runs along the beach were awesome (tip - go early, it gets very hot early). Harbor Walk Village has lots of activities - the kids loved the fireworks and face painting (Thursdays). We will definitely be back - the house is ideal for one or two families with plenty of space. On a rainy day we enjoyed movies and the kids played - with the space nobody felt crowded. Planning to come back to Destin and the Oxner house is on the list to stay!

Great Vacation

Advantages of this location...the private pool in a beautiful back yard, close to beach, and a lovely, spacious home with a well equipped kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry room. The home has a gas grill unit; however, we didn't use it because when we went out to eat, we always brought the leftovers back with us to eat later so the refrigerator with ice maker was a real asset. Also, the owners have coolers to use so you do not need to bring your own coolers which we did because I wasn't sure about using someone elses...also, there were lawn chairs that we could have used too but again we lugged our own so I am just saying that if you are fortunate enough to rent this home, please know this place is accurately described and equipped. Also, the home is only five minutes from a beautiful new Catholic Church.. The place is within minutes of lots of shopping opportunities and activities to do other than swimming or spending time at the beach. You will need a car to take advantage of other activities though. You will not be disappointed choosing to rent this place. BTW, the owners (Mike & Sherry) and their designated contacts in Destin (Mike & Kathy) are friendly and very helpful. While there, we could not get the big screen TV to accept a signal so I called Mike and Kathy who came over within a few hours. The only reason I mention this is to emphasize Mike and Sherry try to think of everything to insure your stay is as pleasant as possible. So...thus I give a perfect score! Ruth & Leo

Perfect get away

My two boys and I needed a beach vacation and Florida was the spot of choice. We had not heard of Destin before but the pictures of the beach and sand drew me in. I found Sherry and Mike's place and booked it. Booking (payment arrangements, if needed) made it easy to afford to vacation. The house was perfectly set far enough from the ocean to get away from any ocean wind but close enough to pack a cooler for the day and walk up to it. This is the most beautiful beach and ocean I have yet to see and I've been to some beautiful beaches outside of the states. Sherry was more than perfect with communication. She cares and desires for her guests to enjoy their time at her home. The house was exactly what the pictures show but now with tile flooring which is nice after a day at the beach. We will go back again, for sure!!! In fact, I am still missing that beach as I type this...the best location - family beach - I've seen.

Mike & Sherry Oxner

Owner's reply:

Thanks Bree! We agree, Destin has the most beautiful beaches in the world, plus wonderful restaurants, shopping and deep sea fishing. Now that you've discovered Destin, we look forward to having you back as one of our repeat guests.
Thanks!

Amazing Vacation

Great home, comfortable beds, good showers, convenient location and amenities. We spent one week in this home with 8 of us plenty of room. The location was great. The house was like being at home. The pool in the backyard kept the adults and kids happy when we were not at the beach (heated would have been extra nice in the evenings). We visited the beach everyday and it was great. I will recommend this rental to my friends and family. Sherry was very freindly and amazing to talk with.

Mike & Sherry Oxner

Owner's reply:

Thanks Nicole! We appreciate your great review and are so happy you enjoyed your stay. I agree there are times when a heated pool would be nice. We did check into it but were told our pool is too large so it would be cost prohibitive. Come back during the summer when its like a hot tub!

Refreshing Haven

Mike and Sherry have thought of everything! Their lovely home included little touches like a memory foam mattress and tvs and dvd players in every room. The beautifully landscaped backyard and refreshing pool were such a blessing to myself and my 5 children. I had coffee on the back patio every morning before heading off to work. My husband and father had all the space they needed to relax and get away. I had to work everyday, but came home to such a peaceful, relaxing home. The internet pictures, beautiful as they are, do not do it justice. The finishes and furnishings are all quality. The furniture is sturdy, and the kitchen has everything you need--we cooked and ate ALL our meals in. The beach was so close that we could walk to it everyday. The water was truly a crystal green and the sand unbelievably white and powdery--and so clean. Communication was FANTASTIC, with Mike and Sherry going out of their way to make sure we had our needs met and got answers to any questions right away. We extended our stay an extra day. Our family would like to return again! It was such a pleasure.

Mike & Sherry Oxner

Owner's reply:

Teresa, thanks so much for your wonderful review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back as our guests again soon.

Thanks!

Perfect Beach Destination

We absolutely loved the Destin Beach Area! It was one of the nicest, most relaxing beach vacations we have ever had! Mike and Sherry Oxner have an absolutely wonderful home, equipped with everything you could possibly want. The house is clean, open and airy :) The pool and backyard area are amazing. Also, Sherry was wonderful to work with. She updated me with driving directions, restaurants and everything we might want to do in the area! She was also gracious enough to provide me personal cell phone numbers in case we needed anything. We really couldn't have been more pleased with the home and the area!

Mike & Sherry Oxner

Owner's reply:

Kristen, we are so happy you enjoyed Destin as much as we do! We look forward to having you back, as one of our repeat guests.

Spring Break 2012

Our stay at the Oxner's home was all we hoped it to be. One thing we liked was the neighborhood. It was quiet and everyone was so friendly. My husband and I would take morning walks and every person we ran into always greeted us. The house is beautiful and is equipped with anything you would need. We loved that it had it's own private pool. The ocean was just a few steps away. The Oxner's are very kind and right there if you have a question or need anything. They were very helpful when booking our stay. Our family will definitely stay there again in the future!! We had an amazing spring break in Destin! :) If you are looking for a place to stay for vacation in Destin, I highly recommend this house!!!! :) You will be pleased!! :)

Mike & Sherry Oxner

Owner's reply:

Shana, thank you so much for your nice comments! We rented in the Destin area for many years before purchasing property so we have lots of experience as renters. We've tried to make our Destin home as comfortable and renter friendly as possible.

Thanks!

Very nice vacation rental

Thanks to Sherry and Kathy for making sure we had a great vacation. The house was very nice and well equipped. The pool was too cold to swim in by this time, but it was fun nonetheless.

Destin Vacation

This is the second time we have stayed in one of the Oxner's home, and they never fall short of how they describe it to be. It was absolutely perfect, beautiful private back yard, so close to the beach. Everything was wonderful and we cannot wait till our next trip.

Home away from home!

If you are looking for a relaxing beach vacation with all of the amenities of home then you have to rent this property. We are already talking about booking it again for next summer. The house is lovely and having the luxury of a private pool right outside just made everything more tranquil. The beautiful Destin beach is only about a block or so away from the house but at the same time you feel secluded from all of the tourist action (which we loved.) You are also close to town and all of the restaurants and shopping. The decor is very nice and not the typical “over the top” beach decorations and everything is kept very clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable and the showers had good water pressure, which might sound silly, but really matter to me and my family. The owners of this property are wonderful to work with and stay in contact to make sure that you have everything you need, it really makes you feel like you are part of the family instead of a renter!

A TASTE OF HEAVEN on EARTH

Our family thouroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. From the time we made our reservations clear through the vacation stay, we had constant contact with the owner with updates of what to expect and things to do in the area. Sherry is SUPERB!! This home is in a perfect location - the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and the house is kept meticulously clean. Of course, we especially enjoyed our stroll to the nearby beach. If you visit here you must stroll the beach after dark and experience the sand crabs coming in with the tide. We also enjoyed swimming in the pool after a long hot day. It is absolutely beautiful here and a great place for families to just have fun!! I recommend this for anyone who wants to get away from it all and have a taste of Heaven on earth. There are a lot of activities to be enjoyed in the area and many places to eat and shop. One of our favorite excursions was a deep sea fishing expedition aboard the Destin Princess. Thank you, Sherry and Mike, for a wonderful place to stay during our vacation as well as for all of the friendly e-mails. We will definitely keep you in mind for further get aways!

Home Away from Home

Sherry & Mike: Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful house. We plan to make it our home away from home. Everything needed for a multi-family stay was clean, neat and available. Whether it was out the back door to the pool or just down the street to the beach, everything was close by. See you again next year. George & Kay

Best Vacation EVER!!!

Destin is our vacation location of choice now! This house was perfect for our family. Enjoyed the private pool and very comfortable beds. The kids LOVED that every bedroom had a tv. They really felt special. Sherry, the owner, was a pure pleasure to work with. She went beyond the call of duty with suggestions and information. We will be repeat customers!!!!

Beautiful Home!

This property is truly a home away from home. It is beautifully decorated, well-appointed, big enough for 10 and it's in a perfect location. The neighborhood is quiet and serene, the beach is right across the street and there are plenty of great restaurants and nightlife nearby. I plan to stay there again on my next trip to Destin and would highly recommend this property.

Review from Karen, July 8, 2014:
Wonderful property and the owners were terrific.
The property was everything we needed and more. The owners were so helpful in planning our trip and answered any questions we had immediately. My daughter got married on the beach at Henderson and the house was within 10 minutes. 5 minute walk to the beach and your feet are in the water! I would definitely want to book this house again if the opportunity would arise. Thank you so much, Sherry and Mike!

Mike & Sherry,
Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us! Our mission was to escape the seemingly endless Wisconsin winter in sunny FL and it couldn't have been more successful! While it was sleeting and snowing back home, we were faced with tasks like choosing to swim in the pool or the ocean. A week of 80 and sunny was exactly what we needed. Your home was our during our week in Paradise. We used the pool every day - so glad for it being there!
Thanks again!

Mike & Sherry,
Your home was an answer to our prayers! We were all set to vacation in NC until Hurricane Irene decided to halt our plans. Our family had not vacationed in years and our children were so looking forward to water and sunshine on the coast. We assured them we'd find a great vacation spot and that maybe God would lead us to an even better location........He did! So, we searched online after a co-worker suggested Destin. We came across your lovely home and within 24 hrs our plans were made. We arrived to find your home as lovely and clean as the photos online. The pool was wonderful and the beds were super comfortable! Thank you for sharing your FL home with our family!
