Super beachfront location with easy access to beach and large deck to enjoy!    Oct 01, 2022

review star

This condo worked beautifully for 3 couples with 2 queen beds and 1 king. There was potential for other sleeping spaces that would work well for children. There were plenty of beach toys to enjoy. Kitchen stocked well with a huge variety of spices and home supplied well with paper goods (toilet paper and paper towels) as well as linens. Lower level vents and ceiling fans could use one detail cleaning. We had a minor bug problem which once she was made aware she was right on. The place was fresh and was a wonderful place with many amenities to enjoy Destin beach and close restaurants from. Our husbands were close to 3 golf course that they enjoyed playing at. Jean was excellent with communicating with us.

Awesome property    Oct 01, 2022

review star

My family and I stayed the first week of October and had a wonderful time. It was basically 3 families and this property worked out perfect especially with the 2 separate living areas!

Jean is perfect and thought of everything to make the stay at her property perfect! The location is great and not right in the middle of chaos but close enough to everything you would want.

We would definitely recommend staying here!

Great experience. The house is older and needs a little TLC but clean and met all our needs. The owner,Jean, brought new board games for the kids and there were so many beach toys it was great! The private beach just made the whole stay so much more enjoyable. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location and plenty of room for our family.    Jul 01, 2022

The property was as described. It was clean and comfortable with a private beach. We have stayed in more updated houses but Reef 16 met our needs for space and felt like a family beach home.

Best Family Vacation Yet!    May 01, 2022

review star

This was a perfect place for our 12 person, 3 family, vacation. We vacation annually as a family for a week, and, this home is amazing. The living areas allow for large gatherings and also for small groups and privacy. Our favorite was the huge deck overlooking the ocean; however, the smaller deck off the main level was fabulous for breakfast and evening relaxation for a smaller group. Sleeping accommodations worked well for our group too, so everyone was well rested and ready for the next day of crazy activity. The location is perfect for all needs for shopping and excursions. We did a deep sea fishing trip and rented a pontoon boat to go to crab island. Loads of restaurants nearby if you don't want to cook. But the best was being right on the beach without gigantic crowds. The unit provides ergonomic beach recliners and umbrellas that call you to relax on the beach. even when keeping an eye on kids in the ocean. For the kiddos, there are boogie boards, sand pails and other toys for play on the beach and in the ocean. Absolutely everything is provided. It's just up to you to add the FUN!!

Destin Birthday Trip    Apr 01, 2022

We had a fabulous stay at Jean's house. There were 7 adults and one toddler and she had everything the toddler needed from a crib to a high chair to all of the beach toys he could imagine! The big kids also had fun playing with the boogie boards! The house is in a perfect location - right on the beach! We loved that we had our own area of the beach with lots of chairs, umbrellas, towels etc. Will definitely book this again for our next Destin trip!

This was a perfect place with so many items that made the pre packing easy. They provided beach towels, umbrellas, canopy, and chairs. Huge help in not having to purchase or pack those items. Loved the room. We had 14 people and had plenty of seating in the condo and on the beach. Loved Loved Loved it!

The view waking up and seeing the beach and the water don't see that much in Ohio

Great Location    Dec 01, 2021

review star

Located far enough away from public beach areas that the beach behind the unit stays quiet. Easily walkable distance to several restaurants and shops. Property is starting to show its age and could use some updates and rehab, everything functional, just some expected wear and tear from use and environment. Good amount of games and water/sand toys for all ages.

Beautiful and Serene    Dec 01, 2021

review star

To keep this relatively short and sweet, our the check-in process was quick and we were able to get busy vacationing as soon as we arrived. There was plenty of everything that we needed to enjoy our stay including the toys and games for the beach. We had all the space we needed for kicking back and relaxing and enjoying this gorgeous area. The private beach was probably one of our favorite things about this day.

The view from any level of our 3 decks was breathtaking.

On a side note, the owner of the condo was willing to provide us with places to go and companies to go through for rentals during our stay which was also very helpful!

The location is awesome. The property was clean and no need to buy chairs or beach needs. The property is a little dated is some areas but we were very pleased and enjoyed a wonderful week!
