Family time

By: Trip Date: 2022-07-16
My Family and I loved our stay at this house. There were 13 of us including 8 children. The house had plenty of room to accommodate all of us. The master bathrooms on the second and third floor were especially nice. The first floor living area is spacious and was great for our game nights. The second refrigerator in the laundry room was very helpful. The kitchen is well equipped, and we cooked in several times. The location is perfect, a very short walk to the beach and close to restaurants and attractions. I had reason to email the property manager with questions prior to our arrival. I sent my email on Friday night expecting a response on Monday. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a response almost immediately. I would definitely recommend both this house and this rental agent. We will be back.

Good house busy location

By: Trip Date: 2022-07-12
House was beginning to show some signs of wear abs tear, but overall a very nice property and we’ll suited for our family vaca needs.

Wonderful and beautiful stay

By: Trip Date: 2022-06-28
Would stay at this location again. Beautiful house and awesome location to the gulf.

Great location, but can’t do the bugs and dirty pool!

By: Trip Date: 2022-06-16
This was our first trip to Florida. We had a great time. The beaches were beautiful, Crab Island was amazing, dolphin tour was a blast and everyone was great!

The house was OK! When we arrived, the house was very clean, pool was running and crystal clear. The evening we arrived we ended up unpacking and decided to order pizza. As everyone was eating, we started noticing roaches along the kitchen counters, they even got into our pizza and had to throw it away. At first we thought it may have came from the pizza! We decided to clean it all up and we put a plate of food out to see if there was more, and there was. This went on the whole trip. We contacted the people and they said they would come out and spray and we don’t think they ever did. We ended up putting all food in the refrigerator and not keep ANY open foods on the counter or in the pantry! We even noticed the roaches in the downstairs bedroom and bathroom!
The first night while we were hanging in the pool, we noticed rats running along the white trim of outside of the house. At first we thought we were seeing things, until we seen it again. My brother and son ended up going to the 2nd floor balcony and sure enough, there was one on there. We never noticed anything inside the house, but we made sure all doors were kept shut at all times!
The first 2 days the pool was crystal clear, circulating each day and staying clean. The rest of the days, the pump never turned on, the water level started dropping and the pool was very cloudy and unable to see the bottom. Thank goodness for the beautiful Miramar Beach, the water was clean, clear and cool!

Overall the house was very spacious for the amount of people we had. The location was great. Walking distance to the beach, souvenir shops and restaurants.
We will definitely be back, but unfortunately not to this house!!

Team Building Get-a-way for our office

By: Trip Date: 2021-11-04
We had an exceptional time as a Team at this location. The property was perfect for our purposes. The location to the beach and the pool were an added plus. The management company was very easy to work with and everything was exactly as described. We would choose this property again for a vacation or get-a-way.

Perfect Location

By: Trip Date: 2021-05-28
The house is in the best location for our trip! We had 21 girlfriends stay here. We all really enjoyed it and everyone fit perfectly! It has the easiest walk to the beach and is right in the middle of everything.

Family Easter Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2021-04-02
What an awesome vacation after such a long wait. Unfortunately our Easter Vacation for 2020 was cancelled due to COVID just weeks before our arrival. You can only imagine how hard this was to explain to six grandkids. Thanks to the owners and management we were able to reschedule for Easter 2021. It was everything we hoped for and more. Immaculate, well stocked kitchen, perfect location and peacefully relaxing. We were 6 adults and 6 children age 20-8 and had so much room to spread out. Communication with property management was outstanding and so helpful especially since COVID made things more difficult. Thank you again for a fantastic vacation and we will be booking again.

Great House

Fall break in Miramar

By: Trip Date: 2020-10-17
We enjoyed our stay! It was a nice set up for 3 families, with each set of parents having their own room/bathroom, and the kids sleeping together in loft rooms. Pool was nice and it was an easy walk to the beach.

Best family home. We loved it

By: Trip Date: 2020-09-04
Private pool, private beach access. Within walking distance, gated entry. Well stocked house. Clean, soft mattresses, well stocked kitchen! Our forever go to from now on. Visit Destin Ice for your shrimp boils! Half the price of anywhere else! We fed 21 people shrimp and all sides for 240 dollars. It was the BEST!

Great place

By: Trip Date: 2020-06-13
Great time and great place.

Fall Break in Paradise

By: Trip Date: 2019-10-12
Fall Break 2019 was so amazing. This house is perfect and plenty big for our crew of 10 adults and 5 children. Beautifully decorated with everything you could ever want or need. The kids enjoyed the pool and it’s just steps to the beach. We LOVED it.

We can’t wait to come back!

By: Trip Date: 2019-10-07
We had a family getaway with our two daughters and their families and the house couldn’t have been better for us. Three king masters along with a huge bunk room and comfortable living area were perfect for the 11 of us, with plenty of room to spare. The kids loved the pool, and close beach access was great. The house was beautiful and in a gated community. We will be back again soon!

Perfect for large groups

By: Trip Date: 2019-09-22
Perfect for large families! Three masters and plenty of room for kids.

Beautiful House - Close to beach!

By: Trip Date: 2019-08-30
The house was beautiful, clean, and had plenty of room for all of our guests. The second floor master bedroom is amazing!! We had 12 girls all getting ready at once and we never had an issue with hot water. Very close to the beach but the only downfall was it’s a very steep staircase to get down to the beach. When carrying a bunch of stuff, it’s pretty challenging. The pool was awesome also, perfect size!


By: Trip Date: 2019-08-21
This home is amazing!! Decorated beautifully and very clean. The property management company was so helpful with any questions we had. Short walk to the beautiful beach! The pool size was perfect for our group of 15 with the beach so close.

Great Family Vaction

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-20
Took 13 of my family on Vacation. This was a great house and location.

Great House

By: Trip Date: 2019-05-16
We enjoyed the space. Lots of beds for a big party of people! We may look to stay there again next year! Clean. The only thing we didn't like is despite it being clean and ready for us to come in, we couldn't check in any earlier than 4 PM.

Also, only other thing we didn't love were that the beach is private with a rule about not bringing canopies on the beach. We had a big group, and wanted to definitely stay underneath the canopy so we drove down to the public beach area.

Perfect Vacation Home

By: Trip Date: 2019-04-14
This house has everything needed for a great vacation stay! We loved the private pool. Highly recommend adding the extra cost of heating the pool. It's worth it especially for our stay in the month of April. This house has plenty of rooms and extra bonuses of beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach wagon, a cooler, floaties and boards, and sand toys galore! Great location. Short walking distance to beach access, shops, and restaurants. The house was clean and nicely decorated. Highly recommend.
