    Great host but also the most beautiful property! There is a tree house that was comfortable for adults to get into in the back yard that over looks the bay. Water was fun to play in while we cooked out in the back or fish right off the dock.Closely located/short drive to the beach, grocery stores and pet friendly restaurants. Our family visits Destin every year but this year we wanted more time at an actual beach house and this place was perfect! The home was clean and well stocked with clean towels, dishes and linens. We like to experience new places but I think we will try to book again in the future. It was a very nice booking! Thank you hosts for sharing your home with us!

  • Back for seconds!


    We loved this house so much last year that we came back and stayed here again. And again it did not disappoint! This home is such a cute older cottage style home and is so comfortable! It has so much character and charm of days gone by. We loved that there were so many places you could sit, relax and enjoy the views! There was so much room for everyone. We were able to fish and swim right off the dock. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals but there are so many awesome "local" restaurants right around the corner that made it great when we came off the water and everyone was starving. We love that you can enjoy the bay and the gulf in the same day because you are only minutes from the beach! And the air conditioner works great! Thank you for sharing this home with our family!! We will be back next year!

  • Out of the way and on the bay


    We rented this vintage vacation home that sits right on the Choctawatchee Bay for a family gathering. It’s truly an old Florida setting, with live oaks and palms shading the property. There is an upscale grocery nearby on hwy. 98 where you can grab everything you need without much hassle. The dock is freshly repaired after hurricane damage. Bring folding chairs and enjoy the sun or the moon as if you grew up living here.

    If you like the beach, shopping, sight seeing, or dining out, 30A is only a few miles away. The white sand beaches are what people are talking about. You can explore the region’s quirky architecture or see the dune lakes in several state parks nearby.

    The house is the kind where you can imagine spending your childhood vacation. It’s casual and not fussy. It’s a perfect retreat.

  • Great location


    We can only echo most of the reviews for this property. We had our 3 kids (all in their 20's) plus one fiancé with us. Loved the location on the water. We spent a lot of time outside! Screened in back porch was awesome but we couldn't enjoy it until we gave it a good cleaning! Interior of home is just old and needs updating - kitchen cabinets/pantry especially. Couches were very comfy and large TV was nice. Proximity to beach was awesome. Wanted to use canoe but one seat was rotted out. Did enjoy fishing from the dock and watching the dolphins swim so close!

  • A hidden gem with great fishing.


    Great fishing! My 14 year old son caught a massive cat fish and the highlight was a sting ray! We will for sure be back. It's a peaceful escape.
