It was perfect for our large family

It was a great location and perfect for the family, and handicap accessible for my father in law who is in a wheelchair.

Has great potential, but needs a little TLC!

  • 3 of 5

Luna Mermaid was nice overall. It had plenty of space for our group and was close enough that we could walk down to the beach. The house and back house were in need of some TLC. New paint and a thorough clean would go a long way. The doors were filthy around handles and all had chipped paint. I know that happens in rentals, but some work is definitely needed. The floors turned white socks black and there was dust and grime coming out of the air vents on the walls. The pool was nice to have, but dirty on the bottom. I think this property has a ton of potential and would be much improved with a good cleaning and some fresh paint.

Family Spring Break 2018

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Luna Mermaid. We could not have found a better home. Actually 2 homes. Front Home had 6 adults & 5 children under 6, the back home had 4 adults, my Son, his wife, my daughter & her husband as well as there 5 of there teenagers, ages 25 to 18. The pool was behind the fence in front of the back home which had a latch that the smaller children could not open. It was a little extra to get the pool heated and I must say, it was worth every penny, especially this time of the season. We had extra room for the few who were not able to attend. Great memories were made.

Very Tired .. need a bit of TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Fantastic location .. loads of space..

But decoration very tired.. some doors/woodwork chipped ...internet very off and on in the back cottage.

Back cottage basic. Could do with being made more homely.

On the plus side the pool was great. We paid for it to be heated and this worked well. Heating and air conditioning worked well too. Although the kids room in the front house was not so warm and was a through way to the back door and pool!

Beautiful Cottages in Destin

  • 5 of 5

This property has two cottages with ample parking (seriously you could fit 8 cars if you wanted), two blocks from crystal clear waters at a public beach access. This property lived up to the pictures- my large family made use of the 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, and heated pool.

This rental is a great deal and we are already talking about booking again in the summer!

We really enjoyed our stay! Great for large families!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the property! Time went by way too fast! The only thing that didn't work was the jets in the tub. That wasn't a big problem for us. We would stay here again!
