Excellent Destin Trip

  • 5 of 5

We were happy to share this three bedroom town home with another family of three and there was plenty of room for everyone. The property was exactly as represented. It was very comfortable, clean, updated, and I was very happy with the location. We cooked dinner at the town home every night and there was everything we needed for that. We especially enjoyed being able to grill on the back patio. The beach was beautiful!! We would recommend this town home to anyone looking for an affordable beach trip!!

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this town home with another family from back home and had a great time! The town home was beautiful and had everything we needed. The beach and the gulf water was awesome. We spent every day enjoying the ocean breeze as the kids played in the surf. The town home was close to the swimming pool and loved how the kids could run back and forth to grab snacks and drinks. There are so many choices for dining and entertainment. We even brought the kids bowling one evening. Overall this was an excellent town home with a great location.

Great trip with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We came over from Texas and spent an amazing week here. The town house is beautiful and had everything we needed to make our stay great. We were a group of eight (four adults and four children). The town home is in a great location.....loved the short walk out the back or front door to the beach and very close to the swimming pool, which the kids loved. All of the beds were comfortable and each room had its own flat screen TV.

It was convenient to BBQ on the large back patio or cook in the kitchen as it had everything we needed.

We had a great time with family and friends and look forward to returning to this town home!

Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

After visiting Destin with my family, I honestly can not think of a more perfect location! We were just a very short walk from the beach and next to the swimming pool. The town home was very clean and nicely stocked. Loved the master bedroom set. All the furnishings were great. When you leave the property there are several places just right there! Mellow Mushroom, Sunsations, Winn Dixie, The Pancakery, gas stations... then just a short drive and you can be anywhere you like: The Track, Banana Barts, The Harbor Walk, Walmart, Target, etc... We loved Fudpuckers! Good food and very reasonable! We had a great time!

The owners did an excellent job of informing us of what to expect and driving directions. Never had to call or wonder about anything. I would suggest anyone looking for a nice beach vacation to stay at this town home. We will stay there again!

Best vacation, least favorite rental

  • 3 of 5

My family rents a unit every year through VRBO. This was probably the least favorite of the rentals we've done.

We are used to staying at private owned condo's. With private owned, you can expect there to be soaps, towels, beach toys, kitchen supplies, spices.... This condo has the minimum as far as that goes. The pantry is empty, the drawers have the minimum. It's okay, but just expect to bring more things with you when you go.

The mattress in the master was beyond done. When I say beyond, the center of the mattress was 4" lower than the edges. This was mentioned to the owner, and he said it would be replaced next visit. That's fine, but it's not like the mattress just started to fail.

The internet is wifi, available to all the condo's. It most likely is a slow connection to start, and than multiply that by every condo in the place. Dropped connection constantly, and when it stayed connected, don't expect anything to actually load. Since I rely on the internet for everything, including figuring out where to eat, where to go, it's a big deal.

When you walk in, you'll see an advertisement for all of the free things you can get during your stay. Free dolphin cruise, free fishing trip. Ignore that. Because you didn't book through the condo company, you don't get any of that.

It's not a bad place. We had one of the best vacations ever there. We will look elsewhere for our next booking.

Owner's Response: I think you may have our unit confused with another rental you may have previously stayed at as our town home is privately owned. The issues you are describing do not pertain to our unit. The entire master bedroom suite including the king mattress is one year old and does not sag in the middle. All of the furniture in our town home is brand new. We provide plenty of bath towels, hand towels, and wash cloths for three bathrooms. We even provide kitchen towels if needed. We also provide starter items such as: bar soaps in all bathrooms including the kitchen, dish detergent, laundry detergent, and trash bags. We have a completely stocked kitchen with everything needed including: blender, crock pot, toaster, pots & pans, plates, glasses, forks, knives, baking pans, cooking utensils, salt & pepper, ect. I am also somewhat confused about the empty pantry statement as we do not advertise that we provide snacks or grocery items. We absolutely do not advertise free dolphin cruises or free fishing trips any where on VRBO or inside our unit. Once again, what you are describing is not our town home. Regards, Rita Greene
