Great Location

By: Trip Date: 2022-06-25
The house was large and very nice. The location was fantastic. Some things could be a little updated, but overall it was nice. We had issues with bugs getting into the one upstairs bedroom with the bunks at night when the pool lights would go on. The windows were shut, but they somehow came in large numbers that were everywhere (beds, floor, walls, ceiling, suitcases, etc)and we were unable to use that room most of the week. The maintenance man came and sprayed, but that helped for only one day. They would be gone in the morning. We left the room light off, kept the door shut with a towel under it for the week, but they would still come in every evening somehow. Other than that, we loved the house. I would recommend this house if the bug situation could be fixed.

Great house! Great location! The gated neighborhood is peaceful. Being right next to the pool was so convenient. Bring your pickleball or tennis equipment because there is a very nice court next door, also. It was the perfect spot for our active family.

Eh

The rental home was dirty, the maids did come back but it was basically the same after they left. its in need of some TLC and serious DEEP cleaning. cobwebs and dusting are common surface level cleaning that should be taken care of when you are paying that much for a rental. The cabinets need to be wiped down also. Floors are separating, bathrooms outdated. the space is nice and has a lot of potential. great location to the beach.

Family fun

By: Trip Date: 2021-04-24
This is a fabulous house with a back yard and great for littles. We have four under 8 and they did great in the one room with four beds! Room for grandparents to come, too. The balcony off the master was nice after bedtime hours and the front porch is great for morning coffee. Pool is right next door though entrance around the corner. Quiet neighborhood with most living in the area. Beach was literally 8 minutes with four little ones in tow. It would be great if advertised with a beach wagon for the littles to and from the beach but we had our own.
Would totally stay here again with you get kiddos.

Very nice house, easy walk to the beach

By: Trip Date: 2021-04-15
We were a group of six friends on a retirement trip. The house is spacious, open, bright and roomy, very clean. Kitchen is well equipped. House is right next to the pool and hot tub, entry is through the community club house. Kids would love this pool. Two block walk to the beach, close to restaurants. Great neighborhood for walking. We are planning another Destin trip in the future and will reserve this house again. Called the property management for a question about towels and the team was very professional and quick to respond. Check in/out was touchless. The house is a great value for the price. All members of our party would recommend this property to friends and family.

A perfect Destin destination

By: Trip Date: 2021-01-05
This is a great house if you are visiting Destin. It was our first visit to this area and found the house wonderful. It is super close to a ton of conveniences (shopping, restaurants, etc.) on the main road but its position off the main streets in a nice, quiet gated community and a mere 2-3 minute walk from your front door to the beach is amazing. The public beach is located right across from the entrance to the community and there is a cross walk to cross the 2-lane road (and everyone stopped for us).We were able to walk out and see sunsets without hoping in the car and take long strolls on the beach or along the sidewalk parallel to the beach. The house is clean, well-maintained, comfortable, and a place I would be happy to visit again and recommend to others. The community has a beautiful pool and tennis court right next door along with a hot tub (which was great given that we visited during a cold snap!). I usually hate mattresses when I travel but the bed in the main bedroom was heavenly. Finally, sometimes you want to know that if you need something while you are there, there will be someone to help you. The management team for this property was top-notch. When I was having trouble with the internet during our stay, they sent someone out to fix it immediately, going so far as to replace multiple devices to get it up and running ASAP. They promised me this when I booked it because we needed internet for remote schooling. Brittany was really impressive and so very nice and checked with us later to make sure everything was still good! It was so refreshing to know that if we needed something, they were there to help and they were very responsive. I shied away from other properties where people mentioned in their reviews that the management company was unavailable during their stay. Vacation is too short to deal with that sort of stress! Overall, I encourage you to give Vista Bluffs a try. I anticipate another stay there for my family in the future.

Perfect location- spacious rental

By: Trip Date: 2020-10-18
The house was just what we needed for the week. Right by the pool, gym, basketball court and very quick walk to the beach. You can see the ocean from the pool. The house was very spacious and was perfect for our family. Would stay here again.

Short Walk to the Beach

By: Trip Date: 2020-07-25
The property was beautiful and we did enjoy the house. There were a few things to note, the A/C didn't work so well upstairs, there were no extra blankets left in the home, we did find a few cob webs over the kitchen table & kitchen area, master bedroom bed was not convertible & we did have 2 big roaches in the kitchen/living area during our stay.

Everything was very nice. Backyard was the only disappointment - did not want to let children play out there.

Good place

By: Trip Date: 2019-06-29
Nicely decorated beach house. Good location for beach. Visually clean. Very responsive customer service. Front door needs a slide door lock for adults. Small children can leave too easily.

Family Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2019-06-01
Location is perfect, very close to the beach. The community pool is beautiful and the neighborhood is well maintained. This was our second stay at the property! We loved it!

Great value while still just steps to the ocean!

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-18
68 Vista Bluffs was a great vacation home for our group. We had previously only stayed at beach front resorts and were a little afraid of the distance from the house to the beach. But once we got there we found that not only was it just as close, but also that the walk was much easier than some of the resorts we had stayed at in the past. All in all I would recommend this vacation rental to any family/small group looking for a great value, a great setting all while still only steps from the Gulf of Mexico.

Overall Good Experience with a Few Negatives

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-11
Pros:
The house had a great layout for small kids. I liked staying on the same level as my little ones.
We chose this house because the cost is great and it was located so close to the pool. However know that you still have to walk all the way around the pool to get inside.
It’s close to the beach and all the rooms are a good size.
Cons:
The front door doesn’t lock from the inside and if you push hard enough it feels like it would eventually push open so that made me feel uneasy. We often lost our 2 year old to the front porch because he could open the door without us realizing.
There is no smart TVs. We didn’t even assume that was a possibility because all the other homes we’ve stayed in at Destiny West had them. We wish we would’ve known and we would’ve brought smart sticks to get Netflix etc. for our kids.
A board fell from the outdoor above decking and landed on the outdoor table. Thankfully we weren’t sitting there when that happened.
The house was clean but not a deep clean.
You will not get access to the pantry or garage. The pantry was slightly frustrating bc usually you have salt pepper etc from previous guests and a place to keep food. We had to keep everything on the counters.
The outdoor water hose had a leak and just ran water the whole week we were there. The management company wanted to wait til we left to fix it.

Overall we were happy and would stay again.
