I love this house!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic house and has fantastic owners. They were very prompt in answering any questions and getting some replacement light bulbs put in on the porch when they died.

This house was perfect for our group vacation. Right next to the beach and walking distance to the grocery store and some amazing food stops!

It was very clean and well maintained. I will definitely be keeping this house in mind for next year!

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a reunion here and had the best time. We thought we wouldn't like it because it wasn't on the beach but it turned out to be just the opposite. Great place and will stay again!

Best house ever

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have destination Thanksgiving every year and this house was by far the best one yet! There was plenty of room for everyone to stretch out. The pool was a welcome addition and enjoyed by all. The beach is a short (very short) walk straight from the driveway. Close to malls and Walmart. Great time had by all!!

Grandparents Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations, 17 total family members. Six different households represented. Plenty of room for everyone to have privacy. Plenty of parking and house well stocked. Short walk to beach even the 3 and 4 year old could walk if needed. The children ages 3 to 16 really enjoyed the pool at night after a day at the beach. Jo-Jo was so kind to bring gas for grill in the middle of day after we ran out. There was not one complaint from anyone in our group, everyone thought it was the perfect set-up and custom made for our family. If we take another family trip to Destin I am sure this would be the first place we would all look into renting.

Great Vacation House

  • 4 of 5

10 Adults, 3 Teens, 7 8-12 yoa, a 4 yoa and a 2 yoa....The Luna Mermaid fit all of us comfortably. Just as anything there were pros and cons. Pros- 1) There was enough parking for our 4 vehicles and a trailer, and we could have easily fit 3 more vehicles 2) The walk to the beach was as listed, a short walk and the two wagons the house supplied made it easy to tote the needed items 3) The front house and cottage were very spacious and there are enough bathrooms to accomodate 20 plus 4) The pool was bigger than expected 5) The back patio around the pool was great with adequate seating to lounge and/or eat outside 6) The Harbor Walk is a short drive away and there were multiple shopping places, eating establishments and anything else of need just around the corner. 7) Management contacted a repair man to come out on a Sunday to look at the fridge

Cons- 1) The bed in the front bedroom of the front house was terrible, however the rest of the beds were average or above. 2) Flood lighting on the rear of the house and on the cottage towards the pool did not work 3) The provided umbrella for the outside table was very old, torn and worn 4) The pool will turn your hair blue/green (Hint-put ketchup in your hair for 20-30 minutes and it washes it out) 5) No trashbags available 6) Dirty Carpet 7) The fridge/freezer in the front house did not cool properly, even though a repair man came out and advised it was working properly, it did not freeze our fish that we had caught on a fishing trip

I would recommend this place to anybody overall. Short walk to the beach, spacious, bath and beds to accomodate 20 plus, the gas grill worked well, the pool was big enough that we had 15 people in it and had room to move around.....Hope this is helpful

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We took a rare family vacation, decided to try Destin. Chose to stay at Luna Mermaid and it was absolutely perfect!! Short walk to the beach, short walk to shopping, cozy, comfortable, private, great neighborhood, has everything you need! Barely used the pool, but it was great for the couple times someone wanted to. Eating in the kitchen in the morning with all the windows to look out, and the birds singing....awesome. We absolutely loved staying here, and if we come again we won't even bother looking to stay anywhere else...this is it!
