What a trip!!

October 17, 2014

My husband and I have not been on a vacation in 16 years. We flew from So. Californiia and met our family from Colorado at Ocean Dreams. We rented the house for 10 days and were pleasantly surprised by our experience. We were in a lovely neighborhood, close to the ocean which was gorgeous! The beach was clean, white powder sand, families, etc. It was so much nicer than the Pacific and West Coast beaches. We were even fortunate enough to swim with a sea turtle, fun little fishes and a jelly fish. Don't touch the jellies! :-) The home we rented was large enough for the 8 of us. The kitchen was fully stocked. Bathrooms were nice a large. The house was nicely decorated and very clean. They thought of everything you could think of for vacationers to be comfortable like they were at home. We will come again and encourage you to be confident in this particular rental home. We had a wonderful experience and didn't want to leave. Thank you so much to the management for creating a great vacation experience for us.

Great vacation home

This house is very nicely furnished and clean. The pool is right there and the beach is just 1/4 mile walk. I would recommend this house to all my family and friends.

Owner's reply:

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Dreams! The house is nicely furnished and we do our best to keep it in tip top shape! The bigger of 2 pools is right in front of the house and there are great views from the porch and each of the balconies on the 2nd and 3rd floors! Walk to the beach is right! It is a 5 minute walk to the community's private beach cabana with restrooms, lounge chairs, picnic tables, and a short order cafe during peak seasons!

Scenic views… a balcony on every level, private beach access, and located close to everything (Target, Wal-Mart, outlet center). From the moment we entered the gated access community, we knew we were going to have a blast. Bill greeted us with a smile and he was so nice. The home looks so much better than the pictures! The towels in all of the bathrooms were folded creatively like seashells, and everything was so fresh and crisp. There are TVs, dvd players, and a bathroom on every floor. Because the home is three floors, there is also a refrigerator, microwave, and sink at the top of the stairs. Incredible!!! They thought of everything! It rained all day Saturday, but we were able to grill out in the back yard and watch movies. It was perfect quality, family time. My mom and mother in law were so impressed with the place. They said, "It’s so cozy and peaceful, we feel like we are staying at a friend’s home while they are away." I was apprehensive about renting the beach home, but it was far more that we had imagined. The beach was so beautiful and literally within walking distance. The private entrance allowed us to go at our leisure without having to get in our car to get there. Our trip to Destin was truly memorable. We loved it so much we are already planning our next visit!!! I don’t know who Bill uses for maintenance of this property but they do a wonderful job. I would recommend this home and any other property managed by Bill to anyone. You will NOT be disappointed.

Owner's reply:

Ocean Dreams sits in the gated neighborhood of Emerald Shores very close to the private beach access! It has nice views of the pool too! We do our best to keep our rentals in top shape for our guests. Thank you for noticing!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

A must stay!

The place was great. Clean as can be and was furnished nicely. While the beach isn't right across the street, this house makes the walk worth it (very short, just a couple minutes). The pool right outside the front door is always an option too.

Still in my dreams!
Date of Stay August 17, 2013
I never do this, but I couldn't help but give this place 5 stars! Between being able to toss a rock in the pool and just a short walk to the beach and restaurants, this place is great. The house is outfitted with TV's in every room and slept all of us comfortably. Hope to go back soon!

My Response
So happy you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Dreams! The house is quite nice and the location cannot be beat! It sits by the bigger of 2 pools and has great pool views! The house is well furnished and can sleep up to 14 people with at least 4 kids on the bunks! The neighborhood amenities include 2 pools, a tennis court, basketball goal, and a private beach cabana right on the beach with picnic tables, showers, restrooms, storage for bikes & wagons, and a short order cafe during Peak Rental Seasons!

Beautiful property

My family stayed here in October 2010. The house was clean and cozy, and the kitchen was fully equipped. The property is right across the street from the pool. The beach was a short 8 minute walk from the house, but not a big deal. I would stay here again and recommend this property.
