Reviewer Comments:

Ours is a family of 14 & we selected Anchor Down for two weeks this summer. We were not all there the entire stay but when we were, there was plenty of space and we weren't on top of each other. The home is very clean, has every amenity and the pool was lived in day & night. Beach'n Destin was helpful, courteous and prompt to provide anything needed to make ours a delightful vacation. The community pool is just a walk around the corner, very nice. The six-person golf cart was perfect for beach trips, barely a block away. Anchor Down's back pool/patio area is private and yet has un-obscured southern exposure so we had constant breezes, which made it all the more pleasant. We were also able to take the golf cart to lunch and dinner spots nearby so traffic & parking were never an issue on a busy 4th of July week. We highly recommend Anchor Down and were most impressed with Beach'n Destin.

Reviewer Comments:

We were fortunate to be the third guests to occupy 'Anchor Down' which included our 4 adult children and spouses, 4 grandchildren, and great-grandmom to keep us all in check! We were in awe upon arriving at the spaciousness, quality, the 'view', and the lovely furnished home for which we would occupy; and did I mention the view?!! The beds was SO comfy cozy, ahh, I'm ready to go back!! The location was superb, lots to do in our area, but we mostly stayed put as we had everything, other than grocery runs, in order to have the best vacation ever! The golf cart rental while optional was a great choice. The grandkids loved the evening rides as well as it was helpful for beach trips daily. The lot was the best in the neighborhood for the best view. Everything about this vacation was relaxing, luxury and peaceful. The managers, David and Brantley Cook and staff were most helpful prior to the vacation as well as during our stay. We met David as a light bulb in the two-story closet blew. I contacted David and suggested we use a lamp, he insisted on coming and changing for us. When he arrived with displaying an Auburn University shirt we all were thrilled as our Mom lives in Auburn, we are from there, our youngest graduated AU, and we are all FANS! Thank you all for the best vacation ever! Roger and Jenny Richardson Acworth, Georgia
