Kids and grandkids vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was the right size for all 14 of us. The beach was just around the corner and the pool too. The grandkids had a ball. We would definitely rent it again. The thing I would recommend is a chest of drawers in the bedrooms to store the clothes.

Pros and Cons

  • 4 of 5

Pros

Large, beautiful house that comfortably slept three families which included grandparents and two younger families with five children and a baby. Wonderful floor plan with large, open living area and kitchen. Close to pool. Well maintained (except for the problem in the cons). Pantry with a separate ice machine made it easy to store food for three families.

Cons

The dishwasher worked half of the time. We had at least two service calls so it was frustrating to be on vacation with a dishwasher that didn't work. While the realtor would say the house is an easy walk from the beach, it is for two adults only! For families with young children, the walk is not so easy with accompanying beach paraphernalia. Make sure you bring a wagon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review and give us some helpful feedback. The dishwasher has been repaired and I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience that the repair caused you and your family. I hope that you realized that there were two walk through short cuts on either side if Clipper Cove that are not shown on Clipper Cove. The walk is less than 1/10 of a mile with the walk throughs. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us and we would love to have you return anytime! Kind Regards, Linsey

Great location close to the beach, pool, Walmart and other shopping!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this house. The kids loved all the space upstairs and the house was very spacious. It was only a short walk to the beach, which was nice so we didn't have to find parking. The only bad experience we had was that someone stole our nieces new crocs at the pool that she left there for a few hours. Overall a very great house and we would stay in it again!

Beautiful Home in Destin, Florida

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nice with wonderful decor and spacious and comfortable bedrooms. It is located in a quiet, quaint neighborhood within walking distance of the beach. It is three houses down from the neighborhood pool. There is plenty of room for a large family to spread out. The upstairs bedroom with the bunk beds has two flat screen TVs with gaming chairs for the kids and a large TV on the opposite wall if they want to watch movies. The queen size bunks are very comfortable.

Everything is very well done and seems like new. In addition to being close to the beach, the public beach pavilion with picnic tables and nice restrooms is directly across from the road on which you walk to the beach. So, it is easy to pull a cooler and have some lunch without hoofing it back to the house for a bite.

Linsey was very responsive with questions and recommendations about the area and service.

No complaints at all. Love this place and will be back again!

Car: recommended

Located one block from the Gulf, convenient to many shops and restaurants, 1/4 mile from Destin Commons. Less than 1 mile to an IMAX theater. Bring the golf clubs!
