Wonderful home and neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for a week and this house met our needs wonderfully. We had plenty of space to be together and with tv's in every room, there was plenty of opportunity to do your own thing. The best part for our family was the pool. The layout of the house is such that you can see the pool from anywhere in the main living space including from the master bedroom. Our kids are 6,10, and 12 so they can swim fine on their own and we need to keep a close eye on them but we don't necessarily need to be in the pool with them. This house allowed us to take breaks to cook or get something done an still have direct line of sight to the pool and be only steps away at all times. Also, I think this pool would be nice for even younger kids as there are rails and gates along the porch above the pool so it would be safe to keep toddlers out of the pool.

We also arranged for the golf cart which was handy and took advantage of the clubhouse theater which our family reserved twice during the hottest part of the day. There are also very nice playgrounds, pool and tennis courts and workout room at the clubhouse.

The location is great. Definitely need the golf cart to go to the beach, but you are close to the main drag of 98 and easy to get around from the house.

We will come back!

Nice home, golf cart rental additional fee, few suggestions for improvement but otherwise good home

  • 4 of 5

We loved this home. Master mattress was SUPERIOR- high end Sterns & Foster and the best sleep we've had in a rental. Nice bikes provided! There were only a few drawbacks. The golf cart rental is an ADDITIONAL fee. Many other homes in this neighborhood provide a golf cart rental so keep that in mind when comparing cost. We had an issue with the AC being pre-set on a higher than comfortable temperature for our liking and even maintenance couldn't override the system. Bliss did compensate us for this inconvenience though. The rental does NOT include use of hot tub and steam shower but if the owner would unlock these 2 features in the home, I feel it would be much more worth the rental cost. These items are also programmed and/or locked out features. They advertise the use pool with no mention of hot tub (as it is the same temp as pool and jets are turned off so it is advertised as a sitting tub). The shower is also advertised as a shower but owner has steam features, he just has the steam turned off so renters cannot use it). I feel that these 2 additional features would greatly enhance the rental and make it 5 star if they would be included. I realize this is the owner's choice/decision (not Bliss rental's) and am sharing in my review for feedback purposes only. As is, I rate it a-4 star with assurance that the AC temp. would not be locked out or set so high for future guests.

Bliss is a Perfect name for this property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed home with low maintenance features. Kitchen is well outfitted and comfortable for several folks at one time. AWESOME beds! most comfortable mattresses I have ever experienced in a rental, and the linens were very nice quality, a real bonus for those toasted shoulders. Easy walk to the beach using the walking paths IF you use a wagon or a rolling ice chest, it is a bit far without something to tote your toys. Easy beach access with the Crab Shack providing dependable parking. Beach chairs and a umbrellas are available for rent just in front of the Crab Shack, with one set is included in the property rental. We spent 3 days on the beach and each day all chairs were only one row deep, it felt very open. I will rent again ASAP and would highly recommend this home, very comfortable for 6 people. There is a comfortable pull out to accommodate two more, 8 total guests but be aware, the glass walls of the breakfast room and den provide an early wake-up call for those using the pull out.

Perfect Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate home in a peaceful neighborhood. Perfect for our girls retreat. As beautiful as the pictures reflect and the property management so friendly and accommodating. It was a fantastic trip, easy access from VPS airport, easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and to the beautiful beaches of Destin. The master is huge, so many extra features like jacuzzi tub for two, steam shower, walk in closet, fireplace, direct access to pool. I plan to return with my husband. This property comes with complimentary beach umbrella and two chairs already set up on the beach and there were 5 chairs in garage along with coolers, air mattresses and noodles and pails. The four bikes provided are brand new and so fun and easy to ride. It was a perfect Destination leaving seven ladies very happy.
