Amazing Time!    Oct 14, 2017




Our family had an amazing time staying at "Hidden Gem." Maria's home is in a safe and well kept community, and it's central to everything in Destin (beaches, restaurants, shopping, activities). The house was stocked with all the essentials and more (beach chairs and umbrellas, a wagon to take everything to the beach, a cooler, a grill). Having access to the private community shelter on the beach was also a nice plus. To top it all off, Maria communicated extremely well throguhout the process. We will definitely be back in the future.

We absolutely Loved staying at the Hidden Gem!    Aug 28, 2017





We absolutely loved staying at the Hidden Gem. It was the perfect size for my family of 6. It's close walk to the beach and there's a wagon on the patio to haul your towels and sandcastle making materials to and from the beach. It's very close to the community swimming pool. Maria was super awesome communicating with me every step of the way. We will definitely return!

Paradise    Aug 22, 2017




That's the right interpretation of the word Paradise. What a lovely house in a great neighborhood where everything is available and up to your expectations. My family and I enjoyed every single moment of that great time that we had there.

We enjoyed our stay!    Jul 08, 2017




We enjoyed our stay! The community was very quiet and the atmosphere was homey. The house is tucked into a corner of a cul-de-sac and is very shaded. We walked to the beach, however, there is a driver and a golf cart that circles and will pick you up if you want a ride (you will still walk some because the cart doesn't go all the way to the beach). We walked to Captian Dave's and Pompano Joes for dinner. We also walked to Dollar General for more sun screen. Pompano Joes was over half a mile and Captain Dave's and Dollar General were about a quarter mile. We brought our badminton set and tennis rackets from home to use on the tennis court that is available. This resulted in an epic family tournament! We didn't realize that Maria had an outside storage unit with beach chairs and umbrellas until the last day. We had already gone to the store to purchase those items, so check the shed outside first! The private beach was very nice and clean with bathrooms and a snack area. Also located there was kayak and paddleboard rentals along with beach chair and umbrella rentals. The private beach allows personal umbrellas and tents but you need to place them behind the rental ones. This was not a problem and did not seem inconvenient. At the pavilion, there are steps (about 10) down to the beach with no ramp. The beach warning flag that was the closest was to the east. The ocean conditions flag (yellow for us) was very visible, however, the smaller one that was attached to it (placed under) was not very visible so please look closely to determine if there is another smaller flag under the larger one. Maria has posted on the refrigerator a flag guide and it came in handy during our stay. The home itself is nicely furnished and very comfortable. We had 5 adults total and we did not feel crowded as there was plenty of space for everyone. We did not use the pools that were available as it was just too easy to get to the beach. However, the pool located in the center of the community and across the cul-de-sac from the house was the largest and the busiest (busiest but not busy- no more than 15 people max were ever there). We did walk a lot (our choice) but other families did bring bikes or rented bikes locally and were using those to get around the community and the neighborhood by the beach so that is an option. There is a nice wide bicycle/sidewalk trail along the beach that we used to get to the restaurants. Overall our vacation was great. We relaxed, we laughed, and we had a great time.

House Was Perfect    Jun 03, 2017




The house was perfect and we were pleasantly surprised at the location and convenience to restaurants and the beach. We would highly recommend this house and this neighborhood to our friends. We had a great vacation in Destin!

Allison

Amazing!    May 22, 2017




This place is AMAZING! Quiet neighborhood, close to the beach, and right in the middle of everything!! Beautiful and spacious villa!

We had a wonderful Stay!    May 13, 2017




We had a wonderful stay! The house was very clean and well appointed with necessary amenities. The house was perfect for my family of four. The walk to the beach was only a few minutes and the pool was just steps away. Our host, Maria, was fantastic. I definitely recommend this place. 

Alex

We had the best time!    Apr 20, 2017




We spent 5 days here and we had the best time!!! Close walk to the beach and a quick drive to great restaurants. The house is more private than I thought it would be from the pictures. I would recommend it to a friend and stay here again!

Perfect House and Great Location    Mar 13, 2017




Our experience was amazing! Perfect house on a great location and a short walk to the beach.

Hidden Gem was incredible    Mar 27, 2017




Maria's "hidden gem" was incredible. We found everything we need at her house. The place in person was beyond the pictures. Everything was clean when we entered, and whenever I needed to communicate with Maria, she responded back quickly. My friends and I wanted to avoid the spring breakers and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Destin. We weren't far from the beach, and it was exactly what we needed! I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a relaxed, calm and fun place to stay!

Leighann Jack

We really enjoyed our vacation here!    Mar 04, 2017




“I stayed here with 7 of my friends and we all LOVED the house. It was clean, well stocked, and gave a nice beach feel. It had an outdoor area, a nice living room with a tv for relaxing, and a big kitchen where we were able to cook most our meals. We spent a good deal of our time in the heated pool since the ocean was a bit chilly, but the beach is just a short walk away. The neighborhood felt very safe, friendly, and relaxed. There's a Dollar General in walking distance, and anything else you need is just a short drive.Maria was a great host as well. We really appreciated how responsive, kind, and helpful she was. We really enjoyed our vacation here.”
