About Peggy Fitts

I am a wife and mother who enjoys traveling. While we devote most of our time to farming, we also love to travel. Florida is one of our favorite locations.

Peggy Fitts purchased this house in 2009

Why Peggy Fitts chose Florida

Crestview is a Great area right off I-10 on the way to Destin. We have been coming to Florida for over 30 years. We enjoy the people and the locality. Crestview is a lovely city nestled among the trees, only a few miles from the most beautiful beaches in the United States.

What makes this house unique

Step into a relaxing atmosphere. you may play in the large back yard, swim in the pool, or soak your troubles away in the hot tub.

Awesome Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was simply the best rental experience we having rented through VRBO and through a rental agency. The owner was extremely prompt in contacting us following the initial request. That continued through out the entire rental process. Everything about the house that has been described in the owners write up is true. The pictures are great, but the house is even better than what it appears. It was so nice to come into the home and have so many small items there for our use. The inside and outside of the house is well maintained. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen and the rest of house is there. Such a great stay. Will definitely stay again if the house is available.

Wow! Wow! Wow! From Canada

  • 5 of 5

For anyone who wants to feel the combination of pampering, and home, choose this beautiful rental. We hail from Alberta Canada, and needed a space in Crestview. Dealing with the owner was wonderful. She is friendly kind, and contacted us very quickly after our initial contact. We were nervous as we have never done anything like this before. We were hoping that not only would the place look like it seems on the site, but that it was there at all!! Well, when we found the house after our long plane ride, even the outside was so beautifully kept. We stepped in and were amazed. This home is so beautiful and welcoming. We walked around in awe. The bedrooms were decorated with attention to detail. The bathrooms were stocked with toothpaste and shampoo and soaps. The kitchen and pantry were wonderfully stocked with food, and things like foil and all the stuff you need for living in a home. The laundry room had detergent, and dryer sheets. I just believe that this kind of care should be shouted from the rooftops. Most people don't function at this level of hospitality anymore and we were so blessed. My friend spent a great deal of our evenings in the hot tub, and her daughter dipped into the pool(I know... its winter... crazy Canadians) Crestview was located perfectly for us, not only for our business(we are pastors and were visiting a church there) but also for our fun. We went to the beach in Destin(about 45 min away) and we also drove all the way to New Orleans (4 and a half hours away, Mardi Gras...an experience...) One of our evenings we had a meeting with about 20 pastors over, and THEY walked around amazed! I could rave on and on and I hope you know, if you ever have the opportunity to visit this place, you are being blessed. We will be back!

P.S. Now my friends husband has to build her a house just like this one!! LOL

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We have traveled for many years with a family in tow, so we try to always think about our guests needs. It's always a good idea to " treat others as you want to be treated."

Fantastic House for a Family Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this gem after having struck out on some one the beach front rentals. We were a little apprehensive about staying so far away from the beach but honestly, it worked out beautifully.

The house is exactly as described but the pictures don't do this place justice. It really is like a home away from home. The owner has done a wonderful job making it feel that way, and it is better than returning to a cramped condo after a long 'relaxing' day at the beach. You can clean up, and then all site around the tv and surround sound watching a movie together before bed. We did that several nights and it was wonderful.

The kitchen was fully stocked and with just a quick trip to the store, we had a weeks worth of food saving us a small fortune rather than dining out every night.

The back yard was nice and large and the pool was enjoyable for the days that we were too burnt to head back to the beach! There are plenty of pool and beach supplies and toys for kids and adults. You really don't have to bring anything with you.

My only complaints, which are extremely minor are 1.) It is a little longer than a 30 minute drive to the beach. Perhaps we were hitting the wrong one, and there might have been a closer one (not that I saw) but there are a couple small towns on the drive to the beach slowing you down. It really is a 45 minute drive. Not that we weren't expecting to drive, it was just a little bit longer than expected. 2.) The house has wireless internet but it was pretty slow. I don't know what the connection options are in that area, but it was really only a 1Mbit connection which is not adequate for much these days. You can rule out streaming HD video via netflix or anything like that. We wanted to do that one time but it just wasn't an option on the speed.

Other than that, this place was awesome! Kudos to Peggy who was extremely nice and responsive to all our needs. Book this place if you're not opposed to a little drive to the beach for you home away from home vacation.

Happy from NC

  • 5 of 5

OH MY GOODNESS is what I kept saying over and over again as we walked in and looked around. My husband and I, our kids, were in awe of how beautiful this vacation rental was! We have never spent this kind of money on renting a house before but we wanted to have a family vacation and with 4 kids and 8 grandkids, it had to be fairly good sized. We actually had the limit of people as some of our family could not come, but what a beautiful, well maintained, and well stocked place. We had need of nothing and I would have been happy to stay home everyday in the pool to be quite honest. So many little touches that I would never have thought of made this place the best deal ever! Thank you for putting so much into this home, you have done a fantastic job and I would recommend this place wholeheartedly to anyone that appreciates a fine, clean vacation home.

Great Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home was warm and inviting was extremely clean. We enjoyed grilling on the back deck while relaxing at the pool in the afternoons. We made day trips to the beach which was only about a 30 minute drive to Ft. Walton/Destin. Air Force Museum in Eglin and Pensacola Naval Air Museum were 2 local indoor attractions. We recommend Stewby's to eat seafood in Ft. Walton -it's a casual restaurant family owned well known by locals (small and rustic). Cracker Barrell, WalMart and Publix are 2 miles away. We found everything we needed/the house was fully equipped. You will love the house and the pool. We will definitely stay there again as soon as we head back to Florida.

The Baileys from Pa.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this crestview home. It was even more than we expected. We spent the week with our son, wife and our grandchildren . The home was so large and spacious it felt like a home away from home. Everything was decorated so beautifull, our grandkids wanted us to move there We had a blast in the pool. Even though it was really hot outside the pool was always refreshing. The palm trees and flowers around the pool were beautiful. Great for taking pictures of the family. I look forward to going back again.
