The free passes are per reservation and not per guest. They are non-cumulative. Guests can use passes at different activities on the same day. For instance, a guest could play 18 holes of golf for free in the morning and then go on a free dolphin cruise on the same afternoon. The card also entitles you to do an activity more than once for free. For example, if you wanted to golf daily, each day of your stay (excluding the day of departure), one person in your party could golf for free.

Free golf and charter fishing excursions are available year-round. The dolphin cruise operates March-October. Perks are not available to monthly renters.

My family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home! The property was great & we had everything we needed to accommodate our entire family. It was close to the beach & came with a complimentary golf cart to ride around in. This home was just as lovely in person as it was in the pictures. My family and I stayed here Christmas weekend 2016, & we created life long memories that we will cherish forever! The staff were professional & did a great job of staying in contact with us even though it was a holiday weekend. We would definitely choose this property again!

Had a awesome stay at the location. House had a few minor issue on needed repairs, didn't bothered us.Location is great, near everything! Didn't get to use the golf cart, was busy out and about everyday on the boat. If you have elderly, this wont be a property for them, because the kitchen and dining area is on the 2nd floor. Other then that, this is a relaxing place for your next vacation.

Reviewer Comments:

There were 14 of us & we stayed at Southern Style the last week of July and had the best time. There was a room for everyone. My hubby and I were lucky enough to get the third floor master and it was nice to have a place to get away from the rest of the house and super quiet too. The kitchen supplies sure could use a boost. Paying the price you do I think the kitchen should be stocked with everything you need to cook a meal for a large group. We had to buy a blender (there were two broken ones in the pantry). The couches in the living room were a little "lived in" and most definitely need to be replaced. I would recommend leather due to being so close to the beach and the inevitable accumulation of sand. We were majorly appreciative for the golf cart. I cannot imagine what a nightmare it would have been getting to and from the beach. The pool was nice and perfect for the little ones in the evening. Overall, we had a really good time and enjoyed the house.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 2 of 5

First the Positive Things:

* Location of the house

* Nice pool at the house

* Golf cart

* Community pool, tennis/basketball court, & playground

The house was dirty. As a previous review stated our feet also turned black due to the floors. Also, the crud found under the family room upholstered furniture cushions was disgusting. "Cockroaches" - we called the property manager and they sent over a pest exterminator the same day. Several lights did not work, in closets and over the bar area. Water sits in the third floor shower and you need to squeegee the water to the drain. In the third floor walk in closet was a Tube TV, and other "stuff" which needed to be discarded and the fluorescent light was burned out. Imagine, a huge walk in closet but no lights. The day we arrived, a Destin Palms employee informed us the home had several bulbs needing replaced but during our one week stay, no one bothered to come to the house and replace the bulbs. One bathroom had a toilet paper holder missing - it was in the process of being repaired. The garage had 2 chairs that needed to be discarded, exhaust systems, head board, dishwasher, paint cans just laying around. The outside of the frig in the garage was filthy.

Overall, the house could be amazing. We have rented homes several times for family vacations but I personally would not rent this property again. I would try another home in this location.
