Guestbook comments from the manager

Theo Stanford

Atlanta, GA


The first thing we noticed upon entering the Chilley Gilley is the immaculate decor! The decor was rivaled only by the comfort of the entire home. I have traveled the world by plane (Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, etc.) and though we actually drove from Atlanta to Destin, this was possibly the best vacation ever and that's because of the comfort of the home. Our trip was in celebration of our mom's 85th birthday, and the home and the beautiful beaches and area of Destin made it a momentous and memorable occasion! We are already making plans to return to Destin and will certainly check to see if our home away from home (Chilley Gilley) is available!

The home was extremely comfortable and included amenities allowing us to pack light during travel.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a home for vacation, so we were a little skeptical. However, when we got there, we were extremely impressed. The home was well kept, with plenty of upgrades. It included plenty of items that you need while on vacation that are hard to pack and take up a lot of space. (Coolers, beach buckets, pots and pans, beach cart, etc.) Check in was easy, our point of contact was nice to work with and the home was centrally located by shopping, the beach, fabulous dining, kid friendly attractions, golf courses and much more. The neighborhood has a community pool that was fun for the kids and the home accommodated our family of 9 (5 adults & 4 kids under 10) comfortably. We would recommend this location to any and everyone. We look forward to coming back again and again.

Everything we expected

  • 4 of 5

This house was simply Amazing. It was in a gated community it also had a swimming pool in the community. We also loved that it was in close proximity to multiple beaches. Destin is a beautiful city and this house made our stay wonderful.

experience could have been better

  • 3 of 5

the house was very nice but didn't feel like a beach house. there were a lot of rules on how everything must be cleaned and organized that seemed a bit excessive compared to other check out procedures we have been through with specific fines listed for each item done improperly. the owner had to come meet with us to make sure we were not lying about who was staying in the house which took away from the relaxation of our vacation worrying about if we would be home when she came by. overall, not as relaxing as the owners could have made it, but the neighborhood/trolley/pool/beach itself were great.

Owner's Response: Wow! Sadness! This was our first ever 3 star review, with over 85 reviews! If you look at the pictures online, the house isn't decorated beachy, if that's what the guest meant. The reason we had to meet this guest was because we made an exception to take a group of 10 college spring breakers! With college groups, we require a chaperone to stay at our home with them. The college spring breakers prior to this group, lied to us about having a parent/chaperone, so we just wanted to be sure this time. We meet the guest right at the house, at her suggested time, to make it convenient to her. This is our thank you for renting to college groups.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home is right next to the Destin Commons and is around a bunch of great places to eat! The community had a trolley that takes you to and from the beach and it is very quick! Can’t wait to stay here again!

Enjoy the wonderful bike/running path located 2 blocks from the house, and is great for a great morning walk/run or evening walk/run and enjoy the view of the beach and beautiful houses for about 6 miles along 98.

no smoking allowed.
