Beautiful House    Jun 30, 2018

Perfect getaway for our family!    Nov 24, 2016

This was our first family trip to Destin. It was wonderful and plan on coming back. El Casa Grande was perfect. Beautiful home, very clean and well kept up. Loved the use of the golfcart. Each morning was perfect. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Great House    Apr 14, 2016

We had 13 guys for a deep sea fishing weekend.  The house is very large and accommodating for large groups.  Would recommend to anyone who is not as concerned about the beach scene.

I felt like I was on "Real Housewives" for a week ...    Mar 26, 2016

This house was worth every penny! From the spacious floor plan to the lovely patio and the way the home was wrapped around the pool; this home was one of a kind! The bathrooms were super clean and nice -  the master bath had very tall ceilings and amazing tile work. The kitchen was perfect! Nice chef style stove, dual dishwashers and stainless steel finish appliances were very classy and clean. The patio provided space for a formal dinner outside several evenings and a nice little sitting area for cocktails or conversing are outside as well. The guest house was a great feature - it is on the other side of the pool. It has a nice bed, bathroom, etc. There is a surround sound stereo system that services the entire home, pool and outside areas. Super fun! If you are wondering if you should rent this house - the answer is YES! It was a beautiful, fun home and you won't be disappointed.
The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars was because I thought that there were a couple little housekeeping things that should have been completed before we arrived. I notified the property management company and they were very attentive, but there was a light bulb on the bar lights over the countertop that needed replaced and made it look a little funny since it was burned out. One of the wicker chairs in the backyard had a broken leg and so we were not able to use it and the cushions on the outdoor furniture are white and definitely needed to be cleaned.  Finally, the tile floors on the first floor were filthy dirty. We took our shoes off when we entered the house and our feet with covered in dirt just after taking a few steps. The floors need to be mopped after every guest - I think that would make a huge difference in the overall cleanliness of the property. Thanks for the awesome vacation! We will be back!

Labor Day 2015    Sep 04, 2015

Our 4 night stay at El Casa Grande was awesome the home was beautiful & very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and outdoor bbq area. The gated community was nice . The only issue  I had was the unit on the 3rd floor was not working ,I called the maintenance staff and within 20 mins they arrived, but he could not repair the a/c unit , but Destin Palms  purchased A portable  a/c unit  to keep us comfortable and cool . Christine and all staff was great.   I Would recommend this beautiful home and look forward to renting next time I'm in Destin .

El Casa Grande = AMAZING!!    Aug 15, 2015

Our 5 day stay at El Casa Grande was amazing!  Not only was the house beautiful, but extremely comfortable and homey.  We enjoyed it so much staying home on the rainy days was relaxing and serene.  On top of all that, the amenities were awesome!  We were able to workout in the fully equipped gym and swim in the pool after.  I highly recommend this house and will be returning next summer!

Greg P

amazing home    Jun 15, 2015

My husband Greg and I had a wonderful time . We loved that they had a gulf cart for us free of charge.  Everything was wonderful. They do need a few things fixed that are not major but would help. Like a few of the blinds need replaced or fixed. Also the mater shower has a spray hose that is broke and would not stay on the hang up well. Like I said a fee things that will make it better. However when we got there the pool was a bit dirty and some one had left sand all over the floors and counters. When I called they sent somewhere to check it out and the next day they sent a pool guy and a sweet lady to clean it. The young man who worked for them that came to check it out was super nice as well. So this is truly an amazing place and very comfortable with alot of room. Anyone will be happy to stay here. If something needs to be done let them know amd they will go above the norm to take care of you! Will definitely come again someday. Thanks for the fun times. Pickering family

Family Get Away    Jun 05, 2015

Home was more than I expected, spacious and clean and in a very convenient location. We enjoyed a family game of volleyball in the pool and they had all the necessities such as the ball and net. The property team was fabulous, the AC wasn't cooling on the second floor and they had someone out within hours to repair it. The golf cart they provided was very useful for a quick ride over to the beach. We enjoyed our weekend getaway.  The only issue we had was the grill by the pool didn't have a propane tank so we couldn't use it but they did provide a small charcoal grill. Other than that we loved the home. 

Ashley C

2015 Family Vacation    May 23, 2015

My family and I absolutely loved El Casa Grande. The online pictures did not do this property justice. The property was in immaculate condition, with more than enough space for my family of 13. It's conveniently located in the heart of Destin among restaurants and shops and only a walk away from the beautiful beach. We will definitely return!

Latarsha T

Superb Home    May 01, 2015

Words can't express the shock and awe we had once we drove up to El Casa Grande. The home was immaculate and very inviting to me and my guest. Very spacious on the inside where everyone was able to comfortably rest wherever they wanted.The management staff was very professional and prompt when replying to my emails. Can't wait to return.

Wedding/Reception    Apr 15, 2015

I truly enjoyed my stay at this home. My husband and I married on the beach and had a small reception at this house. It was very memorable and absolutely amazing. My family and quest enjoyed themselves. Our wedding will continue to be one of the top family discussions for a long time.

Adia H

great vacation    Dec 20, 2014

I absolutely loved my experience at El Casa Grande. The home is beautiful. The staff is very friendly. Any questions or concerns you have they are willing to help. I definitely recommend Destin Palms Vacation to family and friends.

Very nice and comfortable stay.  More than I imagined.

Lan-Chi N

great family vacation!    Aug 09, 2014

My whole family enjoyed the house and the pool so much. It was just the location that we were kind of not so happy about. But after all it was great.

Susan R

Gorgeous and Amazing!    Jul 19, 2014

This house was perfect for our big family reunion. The description of the property was accurate and was even better in person than expected. The kitchen lay out was perfect for a family that loves to cook together and eat together. The golf cart was fun and great for shuttling us back and forth to the beach and club house. The only thing that was not supplied was an iron. We could not have asked for a better vacation!  This Destin location was private and luxurious!!!
