Incredible



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!

Very Nice Property with all the amenities you needed!! The Chilley Gilley describes it perfectly!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 8 women were in Destin to celebrate our 25th Anniversary in our Sorority!! Everyone was very pleased with the upscale decor of the house. There was plenty of space for us to move around and be comfortable. Even the bunk beds slept well. The 3 full baths came in handy and allowed 8 women to get showered and changed within an hour!! This weekend was about bonding and renewing our sisterhood and the house allowed us to do just that. We were all able to sit at the dining table and eat together as well as to line dance and have fun downstairs!! A few of us that have families are considering coming back to the property and bring husbands and children. The house has everything you need. The kitchen is stocked with all dishes, cookware and utensils. There were a couple of book cases with books, board games, beach amenities (cooler, beach bag, 3 beach chairs and water toys). The house had plenty of bathroom towels and wash clothes for everyone and the washer and dryer came in handy. My only negative regarding the house was the blinds and drapes had a thick amount of dust on them. I would recommend cleaning them a few times a year as some guests may have allergies and could be impacted. The house looks exactly as the pictures show on the site. Rebecca the owner was very accommodating in answering all of my questions up until our arrival. Thank you for making our celebration a memorable occasion!!!

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.

Location

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.
