Reviews for this vacation home rental in Destin, Florida
July 30, 2014
This house exceeded our expectations. Very clean and beautiful. Our kids were always in the pool and we enjoyed the surround sound music while sitting poolside. So close to the beach. Very well furnished and Janet responded immediately when we had a question or minor problem. Very Very happy with our stay. Glad we didn't stay anywhere else.
This is a beautiful vacation home!
June 13, 2011
We were a family of 7 adults and 3 children, ages 8, 5, and 3 yrs. old staying in this home. Everything is just as the pictures show-this is a beautiful home inside & out! The home is decorated beautifully and looks new. It has been well maintained by the owners and previous vacation renters. The kitchen is well stocked with anything a cook would need. We grilled a couple of times on the outdoor grill. The children loved playing in the pool when we were not at the beach. We especially liked the 16" water in one area of the pool for the 3 yr. old to play in. There is an outside storage bin with all the pool toys one would need. The beach is a short walk and there is a convenient place to shop across the street. We look forward to our next trip back as a family reunion.
