Great Home
5.0
Selah by the Sea was a very nice home. It was roomy, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Beds were comfy and patios and porch nice. Great beach area with small bar and good food available right at the beach. Good cooler and 2 wagons also beach chairs available at home. Pools were very nice. Owner was very easy to work with and very nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Everything Is Wonderful !!
5.0
From the moment we made contact to become renters, Maria was so lovely and gracious. She got back to us immediately and allowed us to see her beautiful cottage in the fall. We knew from the pictures how refreshing and comfortable SELAH by the Sea was, but when we got here and started to unwind, it felt like our home away from home. The cottage is so well equipped. We want for. Noth. I love the back, fully fenced courtyard as well as the screened in porches on cooler days. We will most certainly be back to this great vacation spot!!! It will not disappoint you if you are thinking about SELAH for your Destin vacation!! Thank you so much for having us as your guests, Maria. We love it here

Perfect Location
5.0


Selah by the Sea is located in Emerald Shores development and might be the perfect location. Walkable to the beach, a great mix of folks of all ages, with a secluded feel that belies the activity of the are. Two nice pools but an easy walk to the beach. Drivable to any main activity. The house itself has the perfect layout for a variety of family styles. A master bedroom and bath in the main part of the house with s screen porch connecting a suite of two other bedrooms and a bath--perfect for either friends or extended family. There are lots of extras (cooker, wagon, chairs, etc) that make the packing load much lighter. An easy place to keep organized and was very clean. We will definitely consider for a return trip!!

Perfect for a beach vacation!
5.0

Maria's house looks exactly how it is presented. A beautiful home with a great style, perfect for a beach vacation. We had 6 adults and 2 children and it was perfect for all our needs. Separation when needed and a large patio and living room to fit us all. The neighborhood was family friendly, everyone around was so nice, but i think it's impossible to be mean in a beautiful place like Destin! Our neighborhood had two pools that were perfect for when the beach had big waves. A huge blessing was that we could walk to Dollar General to get pretty much anything. We cooked a lot of our own food in the house which saved us a lot of money, and the house had everything we needed! The walk to the beach was very easy, and the house supplied us with a wagon to get chairs and toys to and from the beach. All in all, we had an amazing trip and I can't thank Maria enough for being a wonderful host!

House was even better than expected
5.0


House was even better than expected! Checkin was extremely simple and Maria was very easy to communicate with. Gated neighborhood with a 7 minute walk to private section of the beach. Layout of the house is great and allows for extra privacy. Fenced in backyard was ideal for having a pet. There is also a large screened in area for the occasional thunderstorm viewing! Would highly recommend and will be back!

Heaven by the Sea
5.0

We loved everything about this place! From the "at-home" feeling you get when you walk inside this glorious place to the inspirational signs throughout the space. All the rooms where private and had plenty of space for my family and my wedding party. There was a nice company renting beach furniture when we arrived on the beach. There's plenty of beach supplies at the house but we didn't realize that until we were looking for a vaccum on the day of check out. However, this place does not disappoint! You will adore staying here and you will not be disappointed. We intend on returning at least once a year! Maria is also extremely helpful and she checks in on you after you get settled. Loved that!

Location is fantastic!
5.0

Our family enjoyed our stay very much. The location was fantastic as it was a more relaxed and family friendly vibe than other places in the general area of Destin we explored. The home was decorated lovely and very clean. Next time, we wouldn’t pack as much as just about everything you would need for the beach was available (cooler, wagon, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, toys, etc). My family’s Indiana skin was especially thankful for the available aloe. We spent most of our time on the beach as it was a short walk and absolutely beautiful. I would recommend walking there at sunset to watch the stingrays surf the waves. We also saw dolphins while swimming during the day. Maria was super friendly and made us feel welcome. I would recommend her place and we hope to return sooner than later!

We enjoyed our stay at Selah by the Sea
5.0


We enjoyed our stay at Selah by the Sea. It was clean with a lot of helpful items at the house to lighten our packing load. The screened in patio was a great place for the kids to play in the evenings while the adults visited in the living room. It was in a great location, not too far of a walk to the beach and super close to the pools. We would definitely return to this house in the future.

The house is absolutely beautiful
5.0

The house is absolutely beautiful. It is very spacious, clean, modern and very functional. The home had a TV in every room, the kitchen had every item you can possible need to make a meal. She even supplies board games, cards and pamphlets to help you know what the area has to offer. I was very happy and pleased to stay in this beach home. I highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed.
