Fantastic home!!    Aug 03, 2019

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!!  Our stay at Our Destiny was wonderful! The property is in a great location, an easy walk to the beach access and is well maintained and well stocked.  We had everything we needed at our finger tips, and the owner, Karen, was quickly and easily accessible for the questions I had before the trip.

We had a large group and everyone commented on how much they love Our Destiny and the neighborhood.  We will definitely be back to stay at Our Destiny.  Highly recommend!

Wonderful vacation    Jul 07, 2019

This home is well maintained and nicely stocked. We loved the location and the private beach for the community is amazing! We had issues with the ac when we arrived on Sunday and the homeowner had someone there within two hours to get it fixed! We were very impressed and will definitely be back!

Destin Family Vacation    Jun 23, 2019

Our stay and as well as the Property was exceptional. Location was great, walking distance to Big Kauna, The Boardwalk, Crab Island. Great community Pool in addition to the Pool at the property which was great for younger kids. Short walk to the Beautiful Beach. Kitchen was well equipped and extra refrigerator in garage was a plus. Josh at Emerald Coast Vacation Rentals was great and the Amenity Card exclusively for guest of Emerald Coast Vacation Rentals was a definite Plus.

I contacted the Owner & Emerald Coast Vacation Rentals when we returned as there was 2 items that we thought we left at the house. The Owner responded immediately. Property manager went to the property even thought there were new guest and recovered the items. Housekeeping also found a High School Ring that belonged to my neice that she had just received in May that obviousally she did not know she lost. I was touched by the care and genuine concern, of the Owner, that we got our items back. I would definitely recomment the Property Owner ans well as Emerald Coast Vacation Rentals if you are looking for the perfect place to stay in Destin.

Perfect Family Vacation    Jun 16, 2019

We stayed at Our Destiny in Dunes of Destin. We had 8 adults and 5 grandchildren ranging from 6 months to 3 years old. The house was perfect. Each family had their own bedroom to go to but the kitchen living area was the group hangout. We all could be together to cook, eat, play and relax. Of course we loved the pool after being on the beach each day. Perfect house for our family!!!

Destin Vacation    Jun 09, 2019

Excellent property. Had everything we needed.


Weeks stay at Our Destiny    May 11, 2019

Great accommodations for our family. Loved how the kitchen was fully supplied. Very clean, beds comfortable. Convenient to the beach.

Karen Lugo's reply:

Very happy to hear that the kitchen is well supplied. I work hard on that! Would love to welcome you back!

We Loved Our Stay!    May 05, 2019

Loved drinking coffee every morning on the front balcony! The house was very spacious and clean and loved that all our guests had their own bedroom and bathroom. The walk to the beach was super close as were shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay again!! I didn't give a full five stars (wanted to give a 4.8) was that the pool area had different levels that made several of us trip multiple times. Maybe reflective strips would help alert for that. Otherwise, we definitely recommend and are thankful to our hosts for sharing their lovely home with us!!


Best Vacation!    May 04, 2019

This house is AMAZING! Has everything you need, very spacious, sooo close to beach! Will definitely be back!

Karen Lugo's reply:

So happy to hear you had a wonderful stay, and we will be happy to have you come back soon!

Loved this home!    Mar 17, 2019

We loved our stay at Our Destiny. The home was just right and had all the amenities we needed for a successful beach trip. The downstairs area was great for the older kids, having their own entrance and access to the pool without having to track through the house. The living area was cozy and had plenty of space for everyone to gather around for movies. We loved the oversized ban bag chairs!! The private beach was stunning with the chairs and umbrella included! I would definitely recommend this rental! We will be back! Thank you!!

Karen Lugo's reply:

We so appreciate your great review. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what was most impressive about our home. We also love the Dunes private beach!

Spring Break 2019!    Mar 16, 2019

This place was perfect for our 3 family party. We were able to sleep all 11 of us comfortably The location was perfect, and was just a short 2-3 minute walk to the beach.

Both Karen and Josh were quick to reply to any questions or concerns.

Great Family Getaway!    Dec 23, 2018

We enjoyed this home as family for our Christmas vacation. It had plenty of beds and room for all 9 of us. We loved how open the kitchen, living room and dinning room, we spent most of our time there. The heated pool was a plus also!!!

Karen Lugo's reply:

We are so happy that you enjoyed Christmas in our home. We left a few decorations to help with festive ambiance!

Fabulous home!    Sep 08, 2018

You can’t go wrong with Our Destiny! My family thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong stay. This home is very spacious, nicely furnished and well maintained. The entire house has been updated with attention to detail. The kitchen is great and VERY WELL stocked. Just a very short walk to the beautiful private beach. We enjoyed grilling by the pool in the evenings after our day on the beach. The neighborhood is very quiet and close to shopping, grocery stores, etc. I would highly recommend this home for your beach vacation. Karen and Josh were a pleasure to work with and quick to respond to any questions.

Best home, best owner, with best location ever!    Aug 24, 2018

Best vacation home we've ever stayed at. Very clean, everything was perfect. We cook our evening meals rather than go out so the second refrigerator came in handy. Dual AC units keeps all levels of the house cool. No problem sleeping at night. Pool water was perfect. Easy access to private beach was a bonus. Never crowded, no streets to cross and entrance to beach area is maybe 50 yards from house. Beach chair service is worth every cent. They set up as many sets (1 umbrella/2 chairs) as you want and then take them down at night. Leaving the beach and returning later is not a problem. Your chairs will still be in the same place you left them. Home is close to many restaurants and shops. Pizza place is at the entrance to the housing area. The pre-arrival information the owner herself provided was the most informative I've ever seen and this is our 4th vacation home. What a great place...5 stars.. no question about that. Very evident the owner and rental service go to great extents to ensure you have a superb vacation home. We are returning next year

Great Family Vacation Home!    Jul 14, 2018

We had a fabulous one week stay at Our Destiny. We had three families with a total of six adults and 6 children. We had plenty of room, everything was up to date, and the house did not disappoint. Perfect location with convenient access to the beach. The owner supplied us with any and all information we could have wanted, and was very responsive to any needs we may have had. We will definitely be back!

Karen Lugo's reply:

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! It is wonderful to share our home with families who appreciate this community and the very special Dunes beach. We are looking forward to welcoming your family again soon!

Fantastic!    Apr 20, 2018

We were in Destin for a cheer competition. 3 families...6 adults and 8 kids ages 9 through 13. This house was perfect for us! The kids loved the private pool! The beach was wonderful, not crowded, and only a short walk from the front door. The kitchen was well equipped, much more so than other houses and condos I have rented before. Other people we met that were renting in the same neighborhood complained that their rentals were dated. That is not the case with this house. It is updated and furnished very nicely. Great location near tons of restaurants, shops, and things to do. We highly recommend and plan to come back!

Karen Lugo's reply:

Angela, we are so glad that you enjoyed the home and the easy beach access!

Soumya J.

Great stay!    Mar 30, 2018

We had a great family vacation at Our Destiny. There was plenty of space for our gathering of 4 adults and 5 young kids. and the house is so convenient to the private beach access. The sand is beautiful and it was nice not to have to carry umbrellas and beach chairs back and forth. The house was clean and well maintened with a nice kitchen. The pool is on the smaller side, but great for our young children. Karen, was great to work with. It was easy to contact and communicate with her. We would definitely recommend!!

Karen Lugo's reply:

Thank you for great feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Our Destiny. Pools at homes this close to beach where land is at a premium are sized to fit the lot and Our Destiny’s is larger than most at 22’ by 12’ and more than 6’ deep.

Carol Napoli

Our Destiny was a truley relaxing vacation we were looking for!    Feb 17, 2018

We had a wonderful family get away. The house was clean and comfortable with plenty of room for all 12 of us. There was room to spare for sure. The layout provides privacy when needed and room for everyone when wanted. The kitchen is well stocked with staples and the huge dinning table was perfect for family meals. Neighborhood and beach are beautiful and private! Karen, the owner is very helpful and responsive answering all my question right away! We will be returning!


Better than the pictures, perfect home!    Dec 22, 2017

Cozy + Luxury = Feels like Home!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Our Destiny is the perfect vacation home! This home has lots of character and it’s priced perfect for its size. There is plenty of space in the home for entertainment and lounging. We booked this property for our 1st Christmas getaway. The children absolutely loved it. Plenty of space for them to connect with each other and not feel cramped up. The kitchen has everything you need in it. They did not miss one detail with this home. Honestly, the only thing you need to focus on is groceries. The beds were comfortable and the decor was really cute. We felt like even though the home looks just as pictured, the pictures really didn’t do it justice. The home is even cuter in person! We felt like we were home! There is lots to do nearby and a lot of stores are walking distance to the property. Josh Kline (local prop. mgr.) is very responsive to messages and extremely flexible with reasonable requests. We are already looking forward to our next stay! Don’t hesitate with this one guys. Book now (just make sure you avoid my preferred dates lol)!!!

GREAT HOUSE!!!!    Sep 18, 2017

Our family had a wonderful vacation at Our Destiny. The house was layed out perfectly for us. And, the easy beach access was great since we had 5 small children. The pool was nice although the water was a little cold. We had so much fun on the beach that we did not use the pool too much. This house was VERY WELL stocked with everything we needed. The little neighborhood was very quiet and convenient to grocery stores and shopping. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends. Karen was great to work with in answering any questions.


Loved this home and so close to beach!    Aug 13, 2017

Love the house in Destin! There were 18 of us staying there and we definitely felt like we had enough room for adults, one of our kids did sleep on the foldout couch but that turned out to be fine as well. The place is very well-kept the pool was nice to go to in the evenings and the kitchen has everything we needed, I do a lot of cooking since there are so many of us. We hope to go back.

Great Experience    Apr 17, 2017

Me and my family had a great experience . Karen the owner was very helpful and responded every single one of my questions immediately. The location of the house is amazing , there is a private entrance to the beach which was great and steps away from the house . The house itself met my expectations , is comfortable and has a lot of space for the family. We had a little issue with the fridge but got help for it and also the Pool size was smaller than expected but my girls still had a blast. Overall I would definitely come back to this property.
