Great Fun for All

August 12, 2014

Great fun for all best describes our stay. We had plenty of room - - we were not crowded at all. The condo was very clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed having a deck upstairs and down that overlooked the lake, where we enjoyed our morning coffee. We appreciated the fact that the place was located on a cul-de-sac, so there was no through traffic which made the area nice and quiet. Plenty of fun activities in the resort kept us very busy. Very enjoyable stay!

We rented this property for a long weekend and couldn't have been more pleased. The views were spectacular, the cottage quiet and comfortable and the resort itself was fantastic. Yes, we will be renting again.

Perfect vacation home for our group

August 6, 2013

This house worked out just perfectly for our extended family of six. There was plenty of room and furniture, and the three baths worked out great for keeping on a reasonable schedule. The neighborhood was great for walking or touring on bikes and with the golf cart. The lake and dock out back was beautiful, and even with both of our kids in their 20's, feeding the turtles daily and ducks on occassion was something they looked forward to. The house was clean, neat, well furnished and well stocked with the necessities for grilling, cooking, eating all week. The owners were great to deal with and always responded to questions promptly. We had no issues at all while we were there. The next time we vacation in the Destin area, we would certainly try to stay here again. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

We stayed in this property the week of 7/6 to 7/13. The stay was excellent. The grandchildren loved fishing from the dock. Everything was nice and clean when we arrived. We play golf, so it was very nice to have the golf courses near by. The people working at the courses we played were exceptionally nice to us. We had fresh seafood three nights from the market. The weather was fine, only rained a couple times. We noticed a lot of golf carts in the neighborhood, that would have made getting around a little easier. We enjoyed our stay and will probably go back again. Thanks to the owner's for allowing us to stay in their home.

Sandestin Resort Beach House

June 9, 2013

We have been married 50 years and wanted to rent someplace where our two children and their spouses as well as our two grandchildren could join us to help us celebrate this exciting time. This was a great place! The 8 and 5 year old could be outside feeding the ducks and the turtles from the little dock on the property. At night the adults could sit out after dark and hear the frog orchestra. Loved the golf cart rides to Baytowne where the kids found fun things to do and we found restaurants there three nights during the week (as well as ice cream). We made a few trips to the beach in the golf cart, but because of a 5 year old who had a broken arm and couldn't get near the sand with her cast, we spent a lot of time in the pools. It is a comfortable, bright house and we had a great time! It was a 14 hour drive for us from St. Louis. Our family made us a beautiful platter at Fired Up! in Seaside, FL nearby. It is a lovely place where you can paint your own pottery. They all had to be creative and cooperate and it will be a beautiful memory of our time in the Destin area!

Enjoyed our stay very much. Feeding the fish, turtles and ducks off the back deck was great for the kids. Pool was a short walk, but you need to take the car to the ocean, tennis courts and Baytown which was not a problem. House was very comfortable and clean. Quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Everything we needed was supplied. All in all we had a great time. Thank you.

Best Vacation Ever...

June 30, 2012

We stayed at Dune Pointe in Fort Walton Beach, FL. The pictures on the website didn't do it justice. It was more than we expected, Beautiful views and a lovely decorated beach front Condo. We watched dolphins two mornings in a row from our balcony. The provided beach chairs were a plus. The weather was great, and you had a choice of going to the ocean, pool or head down the road about 5 miles and you could enjoy the bay, which is so calm and the kids can walk out in it or play on rafts. I will go back to the same place each year if possible. Larry and Di are very sweet to work with and I thank them for letting us use their home for our wonderful vacation. :) L. Watson

Our "other" Home

June 11, 2012

My husband and I took both sets of in-laws who are disabled, so it was great that the home was 1 level from entry throughout. The decor was very nice and the quality of granite / appliances / tile was even better. Carpet was a little stained in hallway and home could use more tupperware in the kitchen, but that was easily overlooked considering the beautiful view of the 13th green and the large patio facing East. The only other thing that would have helped us more was a golf cart, which was not available. We would definitely stay in this beautiful condo again. My 4 and 5 year olds loved it too. They referred to it as their "other home" and wanted to know if we could keep it.

Lovely Property

July 12, 2011

The pictures online does not do this property justice. It was well kept and spotless upon arrival. the entire resort was beautiful and peaceful. We had a wonderful time and did not have to drive very far to enjoy the sights. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The golf courses were spectacular and my husband could not get enough of them. We were absolutely happy with our stay and would stay there again for our next vacation getaway to florida.

Great Vacation & Wonderful Place to Stay

July 11, 2011

We were very happy with our condo. There was plenty of space for the four adults and three children that stayed there. It was clean and pleasantly decorated and their were enough towels and kitchen equipment to make our stay comfortable. We were close to the pool which made it nice for the children and the walk to the beach was a short one. It was close enough to enjoy not only the days swimming but also the early mornings and midnight strolls. The beach was not overly crowded. All in all we had a great stay and would definitely recommend to others.

March 21, 2011

We really enjoyed the comfortable and roomy 3 bedroom, loved the hot tub screened in balcony. We began and ended every day feeding fish, ducks & turtles off the dock. The owners were very friendly and accomidating. House had everything you need, even a nice large cooler for the beach! We plan on coming back soon! Thank you!

Great Stay! :)

This house was wonderful. We enjoyed sitting out on the back pier and feeding the turtles, fishing, and watching the golfers drown golf balls. I highly recommend this house to anyone! Our teenagers loved it and so did we. This place is enough to spoil anyone. The communications with the owners was good. Great stay!
