Holiday Isle Vacation    Oct 02, 2021

review star

Beautiful home with great amenities! Basement was super for the grandkids on rainy days. We had 6 adults and 6 children. Your home provided plenty of bedrooms and common areas for a great vacation. The pool and fishing off the dock was also a hit with our kids. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

Memories Were Made!    Nov 29, 2017

We could not of chosen a better place to stay. Everything was absolutely incredible, from the to fully equipped kitchen, Pool , Dock to the clean and well maintained property ! The house is decorated wonderfully, with all the Bedrooms very comfortable and nicely furnished!

We had 3 families and everyone had such a incredible stay. The Pool was one of our favorites as we were able to enjoy in the evenings watching the Kids swim after Dinner! I brought my 24 ft. boat could not of worked out better at the Dock, with a nice Cleaning Station with power and water! We were able to access the Bay in minutes to go Fishing , Crab island and the Thursday Night Firework Show. Its location is perfect for all the good restaurants.

Plenty of parking for the Vehicles.

We've booked it again in 2018 and Cant wait to return!

Memories were Made!!

A Perfect Getaway    Nov 29, 2016

review star

We had three families for a great birthday weekend and everything could not have been more perfect. A gorgeous house tucked away right in the middle of all the shopping and dining with all of the amenities you could think of. A gourmet kitchen with a huge deck to dine outdoors where we grilled most of our meals and the pool was heated for us all to enjoy. The kids claimed the entire first floor family room and declared we would not see them until Sunday! But the best part was walking through the neighborhood to the private beach entrance where we enjoyed the waves and searched for shells, put our feet in the water, and watched the sunset. Amazing. We are already checking our calendars for next year!!!

45th Wedding Anniversary Family Trip    Jul 22, 2016

review star

We had an even better time on our second visit here! (We came for our 40th anniversary 5 years ago.) Thanks for the heads-up about the Thursday night HarborWalk festivities. The live music was great and were able to see the fireworks show from the table at A.J.'s Restaurant. Taking the water taxi was a great option, since parking was at a premium there. We rented a pontoon boat to go out to Crab Island, and it was great to load and unload from the back dock. The Destin beach is always a plus - the sand and surf are so beautiful! All of the grandchildren loved the pool and the gameroom. We even celebrated the 2-yr. old's birthday - got some beach pictures and some in front of your lovely home. A tripod with a remote made it a lot easier this time. Cannot thank you enough for allowing us to all stay in the same place. Oh, and of course my husband took 2 fishing trips - 3 grandchildren on the Sweet Jody, along with 4 adults. It just seemed appropriate to see "Finding Dory" at the movie theatre in Destin Commons, which is a very nice mall. It really was a fun vacation! Many thanks!!!

Fabulous Vacation Home    Aug 09, 2015

review star

We took the first family vacation in many years, 4 generations and 11 people. The on-line pictures do not do justice to this amazing home. We expected a lot, but got much more. The backyard pool became the family gathering place. It was a short walk to the beach, but the kids spent more time in the pool than at the beach. The downstairs game and living area was absolutely perfect for the two teenage girls. Plenty of parking and a guest garage to store beach stuff and golf clubs. Could not ask for more and if we ever get the chance to go back to Destin, we will do everything in our power to stay in this great home again.

Great House!    Jul 30, 2015

review star

This was the second time for our families to stay in this house. We had a great time, made lots of great memories. The house is just as nice as the pictures show. Having a pool to cool off sure made the afternoon heat more bearable. The location is great for trips to the beach and having a place to leave your boat in the water sure is nice. We look forward to our next trip.

Awesome vacation    Aug 28, 2014

review star

The house was perfect for my family which came together from 8 different States (including Florida). There was plenty of space for all of us. The kitchen was pleasantly well stocked which allowed us to cook most of our meals. The pool was wonderful and the short walk to the beach was great. Being off the main drag of Destin was great and the morning walks to tour the neighborhoods of Holiday Isle were fun! We even rented a 6 seater golf cart to toodle around in. Our boat fit perfectly on the dock along with our large float we brought for Crab Island. I would truly recommend this house to others looking at vacationing in Destin.



A wonderful family vacation    Aug 06, 2014

review star

We had a wonderful time at the beach the weather was perfect and made lots of memories. The house is very big and roomy and my grandkids(4) had their own space. The adults (6) had our own bedroom and could have slept more people easily. The house is well maintain and very clean, love the pool about a day at the beach. The canal that runs behind the house was nice for fishing and lights under the deck was neat for watching fish. Had everything you would want in a vacation getaway. Highly recommend this house !!!!

Stephen Rogers's reply:

I'm glad you had a great family vacation, at my Destin home! I pride myself in providing a clean, comfortable home with lots of amenities for the best beach get away with family and friends. The kids always love to see the fish at night under the dock lights! I hope your family can visit again!
