AMAZING!!!    Jun 20, 2020

review star

Fancy Free...WOW!! What an amazing rental property! We loved everything about our stay, and can’t wait to come again! This property has absolutely everything you need to have a great vacation! It is very well stocked with kitchen tools, except maybe some sharper knives. Due to COVID, we cooked all of our meals at home, and were very pleased. The newly remodeled bathrooms are amazing, and we all loved the new sofa!! Susan was amazing to work with, and very easy to communicate with. The house is easy access to the pool. BUT, the beach is farther than I would have liked. I would definitely recommend renting a golf cart or bikes. Don’t let that deter you from renting this property though. Everything else is worth that little inconvenience!! I LOVED everything about this trip, and can’t wait to see Fancy Free again!!! Thanks, Susan, for opening up your home to us!!

Wonderful Family Vacation!!    Jul 22, 2019

review star

Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at Fancy Free during the last week of July 2019. The house is located in the wonderful community of Old Florida Village and with bicycles that we rented from 30A Bikes we were just a short ride away from the beach! We had plenty of room and enjoyed this lovely home very much. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need for meal preparations and the porches located off each of the bedrooms provided great places to just sit and relax any time of day! Our weather was perfect and we loved being in a location that was convenient, but not crowded! Wonderful vacation choice!

Fancy Free was a very nice stay. The home is convenient to San Destin for conferencing and is in the pleasant 30a community. Fancy Free is clean, comfortable and in a very nice neighborhood. My family thoroughly enjoyed it.

Fancy Free was such a great home for our group of 6 adults. We had everything we needed (extra linens, towels, even a few beach chairs and cooler.) Susan was so quick to respond for any questions we had, very pleasant to work with through our entire stay! The house was very clean and comfortable. The beach was about a 10 min walk for us. It was easy to rent chairs on the beach daily. We enjoyed the restaurants in the area and took an easy uber ride to rosemary for a dinner. We would definitely rent here again.

Fancy Free was a great house and very clean with good access to the pool. We were able to walk to the beach. The home had everything needed inside and the bathrooms were just remodeled which was very nice. Too bad Hurricane Michael decided to come into town.... but we had fun going to our fav. spots.
