WOW ??????    Dec 07, 2016

review star

A breathtaking experience that exceeded all expectations. From the first time I spoke to Chuck over the phone I knew this was the perfect setting for my family gathering. Chuck was extremely helpful, friendly, and he answered all my questions removing any hesitation I had about renting the property. Chuck was always just a quick text or phone call away. From the point the property was booked until the date of check in, I had multiple phone chats with Chuck. You can quickly see that he really cares that you and your guests have the best experience possible, and Chuck will go out of his way to make that happen. The location of the house couldn’t have been better. Just steps to the beautiful beach and clear blue ocean, and only minutes drive away from great shopping and restaurants. We had 20 people in our group and everyone was always engaged with something the house had to offer the entire 3 days we we there. The pictures do not do justice to how amazing this house is. Especially the patio area, and that magnificent pool! The house manager was only a text or phone call away with any questions about the home. I have used VRBO for years and I can’t imagine any property ever topping this. This place was built specially for reunions, retreats, and big groups. The purpose of this gathering was for my dad’s 70th birthday, and he was overwhelmed all weekend with how amazing the house was. He repeatedly told me he doesn’t deserve anything this nice and memorable. Home Run. A+. 5 Stars. Chuck - one thousand thank you's for making my Dad’s birthday so special!! - Frank

Frank, it was certainly my pleasure working with you...I know how special this vacation was , especially the surprise 70th birthday you arranged for your dad....nothing is better than a family get makes me so happy that SPLASH was the venue for his epic party. It was easy working with you as we had that immediate connection, almost felt like we've known each other for a long time. Given your hectic schedule as a federal agent and your unparalleled commitment to protecting all US residents, I want to personally thank you for keeping us safe and secure....your a good man Frank. Please stay in touch....can't wait to plan next years reunion party with y'all ! Happy holidays. Your friend, Chuck

Amazing home, pool, location & owner! First off, the owner Chuck is responsive, caring, responsible, and first class all the way. Everything you would hope for in working with the owner direct. He was attentive from the moment I sent an inquiry at 11pm on a Sunday night to after our stay making sure everything was top notch. Now to the fun part, the house! It is luxury, meets fun & accommodating, convenient, and comes with your very own resort size private pool! We spent 80% of our time by or in the pool and 20% at the beach. There is a perfect splash pad for toddlers and has a large area that 5 year olds can touch. The hot tub and water fall flowing over was a hit. Then of course there is the swim up bar, plenty of lounge chairs and tables everywhere, 3 outdoor large TVs, and the entire stay we used the whole home audio to play music inside and out, which is awesome! There is an empty lot across the street, so there are great ocean views from the Kitchen/Living space and from several bedrooms and patios. This was a family Fall Break with 12 adults & 7 kids and everyone was very comfortable. 7 Bedrooms are King Bedrooms & the 8th Bedroom housed all the kids in the Bunk Room with room for 10. It has everything you need for entertaining large groups with multiple fridge's, ice machines, tables and chairs everywhere, 60" range w/ 2 full size ovens, even had a Viking full size wine frig. Many of the prior guests leave floaties, beach chairs and other items that were very useful to our stay. I asked my 5 year old nephew if he liked the house...he said the pool is the best part, loved the bunk room and house, but his only complaint was that the elevator was too slow :) I guess you can't have everything! I have high standards and expectations, the home & experience delivered. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here and will certainly look to coming back in the future. Thank you, Chuck for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home & making this experience special for our family!

Charles Barone's reply:

Steve......I'm so happy y'all had a fabulous stay...I remember how nervous you were in setting your vacation up .... you wanted to keep SPLASH "tight lipped" until your crew arrived and u wanted asssurance from me that SPLASH would exceed your expectations from the previous home you rented last must have been nerve wrenching , but you pulled it off !!! Luv, luv, luv when the kids have a great the final analysis, that's what it's all about ... I told you they would want to stay at the pool and not go to the beach.... it still amazes me when I look at that pool. More importantly, you were a CLASS ACT.... my only regret is not knowing you on a personal level... you are ALWAYS welcome at SPLASH... as a matter of fact, if you're ever in Destin again and need a place to put your head, calland it's on me !! Stay in touch and have a great holiday season. Best regards, Chuck

Better Than Advertised!! Splash is an amazing place to stay and more than met our expectations. I rented this property for a corporate retreat and everyone was completely blown away with how awesome and beautiful it is. It is everything as advertised and more. The location couldn't be better as it's was only 25 minutes from the airport there in Ft. Walton Beach and literally across the road from the beach. Destin Commons was less the a mile or two away from the house with plenty of shopping, restaurants and grocery stores to fully stock the house with anything we needed. We spent almost the entire stay outside in the killer pool and on the patio grilling out. The house is perfectly set up with 8 bedrooms and enough room for everyone to have their own room in our case, but also accommodating for multiple families with kids too. Every room has at least a queen bed or bigger and the bunk room is perfect for large families with four bunks that have queen beds and four more with twins. With the bedrooms spread out on all 3 of the floors everyone felt like they had their own space. We had a couple small maintenance issues when we arrived but the owner, Charles, immediately called me back at 8pm at night and his on-site maintenance guy, Josh, was out at the house in less than 30 minutes and had everything up and running in no time. We usually choose a new location for our corporate retreat every year but after staying here it was a unanimous decision to make this our location every year moving forward. I highly recommend staying at Splash and we can't wait to come back next year.

Jeff....Many thanks for such an awesome review. More importantly, thank you for taking care of SPLASH .... you left her in immaculate condition upon your departure. We are elated that y'all had a fabulous time and are looking forward to your return again in the near future...I'll be sure to have something special awaiting for your group too !! Have a great holiday was my pleasure to exceed your expectations. Respectfully, Chuck

Best Family reunion at the Splash My family has been doing a family reunion every year for 35 years plus and we have stayed in several different areas around the country . The splash in Destin Florida is by far, hands down, the best place we've ever stayed . The splash is everything that it appears to be on the website and more. As soon as you walk in it feels like home, very comfortable and easy to move from floor to floor and the most wonderful swimming pool you will ever use. It's easy to just stay in the pool all day and not even go to the beach . All bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen and main living area is absolutely top notch and very spacious . Chuck goes above and beyond what you normally expected for an owner to do to make sure that your stay is everything you thought it would be. We are returning in 2017 and plan many more future trips. Stayed: July 2016

Charles Barone's reply:

Jesse, Many thanx for the fabulous review! It makes me extremely elated when I hear that SPLASH exceeded your expectations. More importantly, thanks for treating her like your own.....we came in after you for a week and our cleaning company was amazed on how clean SPLASH was before our arrival that very same day!! I look forward to hosting y'all again this coming year....Happy Holidays to you and yours. Chuck

Words and Pictures don't do this house justice 

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 

We stayed at this house last year and have booked it again for 2017. The Pictures of the house are great, but it doesn't do the house justice. It is absolutely gorgeous. I have stayed in vacation homes for the past 10 years and this is by far the nicest one we have stayed in. We had a party of 27 adults/kids and we never ever felt cramped. The pool is unbelievable. Every room is spacious, clean and very well furnished. The kitchen is enormous and the island is huge. We sat 20 people around the island without a problem.

The owner Chuck is great. He took care of any questions/concerns we had. We were even able to ship items to the house ahead of our arrival date and he stored them in the garage. He is such a pleasure to work with and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable.

Don't waste your time looking at any other house in Destin. This is one of the most beautiful homes in the area. You have to see it to believe it.
