    Steve and I have always dreamed of owning a piece of paradise and we found that and much more in Destin, Florida. Steve started vacationing in Destin in the early 80’s when there wasn’t much around but sand dunes and the Holiday Inn. I, on the other hand had not even heard of Destin until...

My wife, daughter, mother, and myself stayed at this house in mid October and it was a great little house. It fit us perfect and it's 1 story was nice for our 1 1/2 year old to run around in. The rooms were a good size but more then 6 adults could get a little cramped. The owner was easy to reach and eager to help with any issues (not that there was any). The walk to the beach wasn't to far and the private beach was awesome. The complimentary beach chairs and umbrella was a huge plus. The pool was nice and the neighborhood was quite. I would definitly recommend staying here.

Owner's reply:

It is nice to hear you enjoyed your stay at Tropical Dreams. I loved meeting you and your family. The beach service and the closeness to the beach is always a favorite for our guests. Terra Cotta Terrace is a quaint and quite neighborhood and that is one of the reasons we purchased Tropical Dreams. Thank you again and we hope you and your family come back to visit us.

Tropical Dreams was great. The house was very clean and the perfect size for our group of four adults and one child. Carol was very friendly and guided us through the reservation / check-in / check-out processes. The private pool was a hit for those in our group that preferred a pool over the ocean. It takes a bit of time to adjust to the fact that all surrounding houses are multiple stories and feel like every window looks right down on you, but the privacy fences do as good of a job as possible. The walk to the beach isn't bad, but in 100+ degree weather, sure feels like miles away. Ha! Having the private beach entrance was very convenient. The reserved section of the beach wasn't near as crowded as other sections we saw. We were never more than two rows from the water. The complimentary chairs and umbrella was a nice touch and were set up each morning at about 7:30am. We were normally already at the beach when the gentleman arrived to setup the chairs and he was always more than happen to position anyway we asked. There are plenty of restaurants close, but be ready for a wait regardless of the time of day. Captain Dave's On The Gulf was our personal favorite. We did not use the Terra Cotta Terrace community pool or volleyball court, but both looked nice and we noticed lots of folks enjoying them. For our family, Tropical Dreams was the perfect combination of location, amenities, and price. We would definitely recommend to others.

We had 3 children, ages 4, 2, and 10 months. This rental was perfect for us, especially with the private pool in the back yard. The owners were great and I appreciated the written expectations for us. Would definitely rent again.

This was our very first time in Florida. We had a great time!! Tropical Dreams made us feel at home. Beds were comfortable, was very clean & decorated nicely. Carol Burke & husband, owners, were very nice. We had the pleasure of meeting them. Having a private pool was a huge plus. The weather was HOT, but we did have nice weather during the day. It rained twice but only at night. The neighborhood was very quite. Enjoyed having a private access to beach (just wished it had a ramp for those people that can't go up & down steps very well or for the families that took their stuff to beach in wagons. Also wish there had been a walk way a little bit into the sand, it was a little deep to walk in. Overall, enjoyed the white beaches, not crowded at all. In our family that went was myself, my 81 year old mom (she had a blast), my 8 year old daughter (was her first time ever to the beach & she had a blast), my husband & our dog. We were sad that we couldn't take our dog to the beach (we wanted to see what her reaction would be to the water & sand). LOL We enjoyed eating at places that we don't have in Tennessee. We loved - Bubba Gumps, Joe's Crab Shack, The Shrimp Basket, WHATABURGER & wish we had one in our hometown. My daughter & I loved the Smallcakes Cupcake place (because we have seen them on cupcake wars) wish we had this in our hometown too.

Owner's reply:

It was such a pleasure meeting you and your family. If at all possible we try to meet our guests. The private pool is always a favorite for our guests. Just to be able to spend time at the beach and then come back and relax by the pool is wonderful. We hope you come back to visit and have a wonderful summer!

This was the third time we have stayed at Tropical Dreams. We really enjoy staying here. We have the private pool to enjoy and the beach is just a short block away. Carol even supplies a beach umbrella and two chairs on the beach for each of her houses. I really like being able to bring our pet with us on the family vacation. The house is very clean and well supplied. Looking forward to the next stay.

Carol Burke

Owner's reply:

It is always a joy talking to you all. You make me laugh. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that you keep coming back year after year. The private pool is a favorite of all our guests along with the beach service. Enjoy the summer and can't wait to see you again next year!

I have stayed in many rental properties growing up, but this one by far tops them all. Carol is very nice and professional. She came by to introduce herself and make sure everything was in the best shape possible. The home is very clean and the pool is perfect. The home is closer to the beach than we expected and it was quiet at all times of the day. We were there during Spring Break time, the street was always clean and mess free. A great place to bring a family or a getaway! I am recommending this to EVERYONE! The rest of my family is planning on going down to see my sister, who lives in Niceville, and are planning on renting this home due to this experience and the location! If you are looking for an affordable home with its own pool, Tropical Dreams is a MUST!!!!!

Carol Burke

Owner's reply:

It was a pleasure meeting the two of you and thank you for your kind comments. I will pass your comments on to our housekeeper but also want to say that we appreciate the condition in which you left the home. We would love to have you come back and visit along with your family. Have a wonderful summer and blessings to you and Tab!
