Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was very clean and comfy. Loved the lay out of the house. Each room had their own privacy. Showers were great!! The kids loved the fact that they had the option of the pool and ocean close by. Shopping was just minutes away. Didn't want to leave. Definitely recommend staying here. Kathy was very nice and helpful.

The perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend! This place was absolutely gorgeous. It was clean, spacious and well stocked. The decorations and bedding even made you feel good with all the bright colors. The beds were very comfortable. It was close to everything we needed and where we wanted to go. The communication with the manager was excellent. It was just what they said it would be. Nothing makes a vacation better than having a hassle free housing . My sisters and I really enjoyed ourselves. We would definitely stay again. Thanks for everything Kathy.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Leap of Faith is exactly as described. Plenty of room for the 9 of us. The house is an easy walk from the beach (less than 2 blocks) and the community pool was 2 doors down.

Kathy is a pleasure to work with and is quick to respond to any email or phone call.

Leap of Faith Destin FL

  • 4 of 5

As with all past stays at Leap of Faith, we really enjoyed our time there (Jan & Feb 2018) and especially at the Snowbird rate.

Everything was in good working condition with exception of the dryer. It should not take 2 each 80 minute cycles to dry a load of towels/hand towels and wash cloths. It may need to be repaired, but in truth it along with the washer probably should be replaced.

We did experience leaks during an extreme rain that lasted over 16 hours and produced 10+ inches of rain for the area.. There is ceiling damage in the great room and the master bath. This was reported to the management co as well as the owner. Nature sometimes wins!

Otherwise, no issues. Great property, nice, safe & convenient neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Hi Rich, I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay once again at the Leap of Faith! I look forward to seeing you again next season! You will be happy to know that the roof is being replaced as we do not wish to chance having another torrential rain cause issues! I do wish you had mentioned the troubles you were having with the dryer while you were here! We would have taken care of it asap! I just received word from the owners that they will replace the washer and dryer as well! Bye for now! Kathy
