The Vacation of MY Dreams!!

August 24, 2015

John- Robert and I would like to THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful home with us! It was a dream come true! Our children loved every minute of it. This home is in the PERFECT location. It is literally 1 minute to the beach. If you have young adults, this location is PERFECT. You are only 1 minute from the AMAZING coffee shop. I will SO miss the nice folks from Bad Ass Coffee Shop. You are maybe 5 minutes from the local Winn Dixie. Location is everything to me. Ladies, if you like to shop as much as I do, this is your home! You are 1 mile from the Outlet Mall. There are over 100 stores. Michael Kors, Kade Spade, Coach. etc....The beds are SUPER comfy! Restrooms are very clean. :). LOVED the kitchen space. We cooked almost every night. There's a toaster, blender, mixer. Do not bring your own like I did. Next year, all I will bring is my swimsuit and a few cute outfits. The Pool was amazing. The pictures do not do it justice. The house is equipped with a great Barbeque Grill. The home is very warm feeling. The couch is super comfy. The decor is perfect for the beach. I can't say enough. We have only been home for a few hours and I'm missing it terribly. We found our home away from home for many years. One more thing, if you like Seafood, there are several wonderful restaurants within a block. You have Pompano Joe's & Fisherman's Wharf that are both amazing and very reasonably priced.. We walked there almost every day for lunch. John was amazing to rent from. He gave us all the HOT spots to go to and we really appreciate that! Thank you, John! We had the BEST vacation. See you next year or sooner!! :)

I am a hotel snob. I like them new, upscale & clean. When I walked in to this home in Miramar Beach I was afraid I made a mistake. I thought it needed a little upgrading. I was so wrong. One walk thru and I had such a sense of comfort, as did my family. It was clean & very well equipped. The owner was easy to get ahold of and very responsive to our wants & needs. I called him with a question not a problem but he took care of it immediately. My granddaughter has leukemia so we wanted a private pool. Never done that before. Don't know if I could go without a private pool again. This pool was perfect. The pool people came 2X's while we were there to make sure it was clean & PH was balanced. Thanks. We had a 5 year old with us & was so grateful for the alarm on the door leading to the pool. Couldn't be any closer to the beach without being ON it. The houses are a little close together but our yard was so big & well placed you don't even notice & were not bothered by neighbor noises. Great little coffee shop about 10 yards from our front door along with a dairy queen, pizza place, bike and scooter rental and an Alvin's type place. Good, safe walking trail and a couple restaurants you could even walk to. Traffic was a breeze compared to Destin traffic on 98. Grocery store was close. I don't think I'll ever go back to Destin. I found my new home away from home at The Retreat. I'm retired & was a little worried about the price but you get your moneys worth here and I have absolutely no regrets. Again, thank you to Mr. Hennessey, the owner, for a very, fun relaxing vacation. I returned home kicking & screaming - I wanted to stay another week, month, year. :) Look for me there next year. I Will Be Back!!!

The Retreat is a great place to stay perfectly located and extremely comfortable, we had a blast . Went fishing on the boat John recommended and caught 6 (our limit) 40 to 80 lb amberjack and about 30 more we kept and about 30 thrown back. You will be dissappointed here.
