If air temperatures are below 50 degrees, it may take up to 24 hours before the pool reaches temperature.
In the event of unseasonably cold weather and the pool heater's inability to bring the water temperature to 87 degrees, no refunds will be given.
We do not offer pool heat if the air temperatures are predicted to be below 45 degrees for more than 2 days during your stay.

RE: Unwanted Outside Pests
We want you to have an amazing vacation, so we do everything possible to keep the house free from unwanted outside visitors such as beetles, ants, palmetto bugs (aka roaches), etc.
Our home is regularly treated for pest control and cleaned to ensure pesky creatures stay out. However, because our home has great outdoor spaces that lead into the indoor spaces, you may see the occasional pest inside the home from time to time.

Cameras/Noise Monitors:
We have security cameras on the front door entrance and the driveway. This is for your safety as well as the safety and security of our property.
We have a noise monitor in the pool area to help comply with local and HOA noise ordinances. It does not record voices, only decibel levels. You will receive a text if you exceed the recommended noise level during quiet hours notifying you of the need to lower the noise.

We Loved This House!    Nov 18, 2023

review star


Our family really enjoyed our stay here! The house is very clean and the kitchen is stocked with the essentials needed for everyday use. The hosts take great care of this home and it shows. They were very responsive and helpful with any inquiries we had.
Our favorite part? How the kitchen/family room open up to the screened in patio/pool area so we can enjoy the heated pool everyday!
We would definitely stay here again!

Better Than Described!    Nov 05, 2023

Highly recommend this gorgeous home. The backyard is a private piece of heaven. Everything even better than described. Bigger than the photos looked. Having all the beach chairs and floats were a bonus. Super comfy beds and sofa. 100% would recommend.

Awesome Home!    Jun 29, 2023

review star


The home was inviting and very comfortble. It's in a great location, gated community. We loved that it was within walking distance to the beach. It had everything you need to enjoy the pool and the beach. There is no need to buy or pack a ton of stuff because the house has beach chairs, sand toys, umbrella and cooler for guests to use. We loved that each room had its own bathroom and shower.

Amanda Bowers's reply:

Joel, Thank you for this great feedback. We really appreciate what great care you took of the house. We would be happy to host you anytime and hope you will return again. Amanda GSM Family Vacations "Papaya Paradise"

Close to Everything!    Jun 16, 2023

review star


Great house and location is close to everything! Grocery, restaurants, and beach. Pool at the house was clutch and the patio is a lot larger than the listing pictures! Tons of room! New grill was great for cooking out. Neighborhood was very quite. Just a quick 10 min walk to the beach. Recommend golf cart or plan on parking a car no later than 8-8:30am to get a parking spot at the public beach at Crab Trap. The walk is nice though. Path starts in the cul-de-sac and head to rear gate.

Amanda Bowers's reply:

Thanks Adam. We are glad to hear that you had a great time. We love the large patio too! Its our favorite place to hang out, grill, and relax with friends and family by the pool.

Incredible home with an amazing layout. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for our family vacation!  The pool area is absolutely perfect, and it was such a great hang out area at the end of the day too. The kitchen has everything you will need, and the location is so close to the beach. We will definitely stay again. Amazing place with great hosts!!

Everything was great. My family and I had a great time. We felt right at home and didn’t want to leave.  Amanda communicated well and provided clear, easily accessible instructions through the app.  Amanda provided everything you can think of in the home. I admire how thoughtful she is and made our trip complete. If you’re looking for a clean, safe home close to the beach, look no further and BOOK this home !! Thank you again

Really Peaceful    Apr 16, 2023

Me and my two girls had a great stay. They thoroughly enjoyed the pool and having a big tv in their own rooms. The outside patio with pool was really peaceful and relaxing and was able to use the grill for cooking and entertaining a couple friends. We will definitely look to book again in the future.

Best Vacation Experience    Mar 11, 2023

review star

Best vacation experience overall.  Amanda's place is a gem. House is very nicely decorated and the she has ensured quality and attention to detail everywhere. It's even more beautiful than the pictures. Location is an upscale community with everything in walkable proximity to Destin's pristine beaches and great restaurants. We enjoyed meals (specially the fish) at Pedro Tequila bar. Throughout our stay Amanda was super responsive to ensure our stay was pleasant. Thank you for making it a memorable stay, we had a great time.

Thanks, Harsh! We really appreciate this wonderful feedback! We love doing this and we really love it when guests have a great time and enjoy the house. Come back anytime. I'll have to try out the fish at Pedro's! Thanks for the tip. :)
