Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Very convenient to beach, shopping, etc. The kids loved the pool! The beach access was very close and the beach was beautiful and not too crowded. The house was comfortable for our group which consisted of 6 adults and 3 children. We didn’t use the hot tub but it looked nice as well. The deck was nice for enjoying the view and the breeze. Ample parking for three vehicles. Called property owner about a few minor issues when we first arrived and they were handled quickly. Overall, pleased with this property and our stay in Destin!

Loved our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house. Plenty of room for four adult couples. We could see the ocean from the upper front porch. Short walk to the beach. Close to good restaurants and shopping. The pool area is awesome. It’s so hard to find a house to rent for all adults that didn’t have one bedroom with bunk beds. This house was perfect for us. It still has extra daybeds etc for extra ppl. We would stay there again.

Our family really enjoyed staying here!

Don was very responsive and accommodating.

The house was clean and perfectly located, only a block from the beach.

Two kitchens came in handy, and were very convenient.

We would highly recommend staying here.
