Area Information
The Destin area is known as the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World! Deep sea fishing is very popular in the region. The sugary white beaches and the clear, sometimes Emerald Green waters give true meaning to the word, "Paradise!"

Lovely but no beach view

July 28, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Caribbean Sun. The house was nice and fairly well kept. Could have been a little cleaner. We enjoyed the space in this home. Lots of room for all of us. The only downfall was that we could not see the beach from the house. Really missed sitting on the deck watching the waves. Although the beach was just a short walk away. This house was the best in the little subdivision because it was the closest to the beach within the gated area. The large deck on the second and third floor was nice and the master bath on the third floor was huge.

Bill Grannan

Owner's reply:

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Caribbean Sun and recognized it as the best in the neighborhood! It is one of the closest to the beach. We advertise this home as "Walk to the Beach." It is just over 1/10 mile, maybe 170 yards to the Private Beach Cabana for Emerald Shores with restrooms, showers, picnic tables, and a short order café/bar open during the peak season. The balconies are nice and the master bedroom and bathrooms are probably the biggest in the neighborhood!

great home and location

June 15, 2014

We loved this home alittle tricky to find in the dark but worth it. Very close to beach easy walk or catch the shuttle. Nice pool and could walk yo resteraunts. The walking bike trails are in front of this area and very nice. I used them every morning. This company was brest to deal with and answered my questions quickly. Loved having key code so the 9 of us could come and go without worry of s key. Everything was pretty clean. Kitchen a little lacking on cooking material but we made do I brought a griddle which helped a lot. The only disappointment is you can not sea the ocean. But would use this place again. Thanks

Owner's reply:

Great Vacation Home!

May 6, 2014

We stayed in the Caribbean Sun with some family and friends in April 2014. The house was very well maintained and spacious enough for all 10 of us. No one had any complaints and we would stay there again without hesitation.

Owner's reply:

So happy you enjoyed your stay at Caribbean Sun! We do our best to keep our rentals in great shape and are pleased when we've met expectations! Thanks again! Look forward to having you back!

Great Subdivision

September 8, 2011

The house and subdivision was fantastic. The only thing that was hard on us, was we didn't see the sun our entire trip. But we hung out at the house and made the best of it. The house was fantastic. I will say that each bedroom was fantastic. The beds were amazing. I haven't slept that good in months! I would advise the owners of this home that the toaster is broke .

Great experience

June 21, 2010

The house was great. We were able to have our 3 children and their spouses along with 2 grandchildren all in one location. The three stories made it possible for us to spread out at times. Thanks for a wonderful vacation.
