Nice location. Great ocean view.

  • 3 of 5

The location was great. Enjoyed the swing and ocean view. However, the unit itself was in need of maintenance. Unit also was not as clean as it should have been upon arrival. Darlene was easy to work with, but for the price I paid, I did not get my money worth. Will be renting elsewhere next winter.

Owner's Response: The renter brought 3 maintenance issues to my attention; the front door was sticking, a dresser drawer was off of the runner, and a towel rack was loose in the bathroom. All were all promptly repaired. The cleaning service I use typically does an exceptional job. This renter complained, so I offered to have it re-cleaned , but my offer was declined.

We had an amazing time in Destin! Darlene provided everything we could possibly need during our stay. Great view, short walk to the beach across the street, and very cozy home! Everyone had a great time! Looking forward to coming back next year!!!
