Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

I really feel like this house is in the perfect location! It was walking distance to the beach and the neighborhood pool. We loved being able to walk to Camille’s and get coffee in the morning and it was just a few minutes drive to everything else Destin has to offer. There were a few things I felt needed attention. We had a lot of trouble getting the golf cart to take a charge. The issue was addressed quickly but still had problems with it throughout the week. The outlets in the bathrooms didn’t work and the knobs on the outdoor shower were kind of broken and difficult to use. Also the trundle bed in the downstairs bedroom didn’t have enough room to be able to be pulled out the entire way and the walkway was completely blocked when it was being used. It really should be moved into the other bigger downstairs bedroom. The house was very clean and well stocked and decorated super cute! Would rent this house again simply because of location.

Great location-close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This place was really close to the beach and close to the pool. It was a little smaller in person than the pictures suggested (house and pool). Overall, we had a great time!

Great location. Unit was clean and the beds were comfortable. Loved that each bedroom had a full bath. Kitchen was small but useful. Flooring was perfect - as it was easy to get up sand and cool. Location to the beach was perfect!!!
