Two Thumbs Up!!

5 of 5
Everyone in the group raved about this beach house. The furniture and bedding were all new or seemed like it- something we have seldom found in larger home rentals, but for our group of pickier females, it was noticed and appreciated. There were 4 children under the age of 4 and the house was perfect for us- two pack and plays, a highchair, Maclaren strollers, baby gates, pool toys, and a sleeper in the master bedroom that we did not realize was there. The pool was a good size, while we enjoyed the pool area as we were grilling out and having a family ping pong tournaments. The location was great- we were about a block from a church with a large playground that had play areas for our little ones and another area for the older ones. The beach access was walk on level and directly across the street. This was a life saver for us as going up and down stairs with beach gear and babies is not easy. There was a great coffee shop and restaurant a block away. Destin area had great shopping for the girls and golf for the guys. We didn't end up going deep sea fishing but hope to do that next time. I would recommend this house and Destin to any one traveling with children.
