Beach Dreams is the Perfect Getaway Home!
For 2 1/2 months we had the pleasure of staying at Beach Dreams. The home is lovely. Very comfy & cozy. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked with everything you need. The bedrooms are nicely decorated. Having a powder room off the kitchen and living room area was very convenient. The sunroom was very inviting! We enjoyed our morning coffee and late afternoons relaxing there. The home is on a culdesac just steps from the white sandy beaches.. We so much enjoyed staying here that we are coming back next year. The owners are very hands on and make you feel so comfortable.
It Was Perfect for our Family!
Destin is beautiful and this house is very close to beach. It was great and hope to rent it again next year.
Great Location! Great Beach!! Great Home!
Great clean house. Loved the location of the property. House is within walking distance to a private beach with a snack bar. Very friendly property for families. We will be back next year!Response
Another Year of Beach Dreams Coming True!
This is our second stay at Beach Dreams and we absolutely love this home and location! The home design allows ample space for family togetherness as well as time to rest and relax after kids are worn out from the pool or the beach. The convenience of being able to cook a meal , pack a snack to take to the beach or to be within driving distance of all the good restaurants and fun things there are to do in Destin is a real plus for this location. The decor of this home is great from the granite countertops to the beach theme - we just love it here! We thoroughly enjoyed having our morning coffee on the porch and some of our dinners on the back patio. We utilized the beach wagon and the toys and I also recommend spending the money to rent beach chairs and an umbrella. The beach is just across a parking lot so within a very comfortable walking distance and the pool is a very short walk as well. The private beach access is great with a place to put the wagons and a place to rinse sand off! Great times, great house, great location! We are torn between letting the kids see another part of the country vs. coming back here again!
Wonderful Family Vacation!
What a wonderful house for our family vacation. We came with 6 adults, a baby and a toddler. We had plenty of space. The house was beautiful and clean. And a nice gift was waiting for us on the kitchen counter. The location of the house was excellent. Close to beach and pool. Such a great neighborhood and so safe. It was a pleasure just to take walks around neighborhood. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Oh, and the owners were absolutely wonderful to work with and communication was great….Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Age 55+, Families with Teenag
Beach Dreams - Beautiful
In the past we have always rented condos in Destin! Never again! This home was more than we could ever have hoped for this year's girls trip! The layout is cute and we all had our own space to retreat when we had had enough togetherness! I can't thank Kathleen enough for quickly answering all my questions via email/phone call! This was the most hassle free booking/staying trip I have ever been on and also the first time I have ever used VRBO. I will most definitely be contacting Kathleen again for our next trip to Destin! Highlights: kitchen with everything imaginable to cook delicious meals, wagon to haul our things to the beach, beach chairs, comfortable beds, beautiful decorations, and owners who were wonderful to work with! Thanks again!Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Girls Getaway, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.
Beach Dreams is a Dream Come True!
My family of 4 stayed at this house for a week and we can't say enough good things about it! I don't think the pictures do the house justice in terms of the size, excellent layout, and it's beautiful beachy decor. The kitchen is well stocked, sleeping arrangement options are great and plenty of places to sleep and hang out with a nice living room, dining room, bar area, screened in porch, front porch area and even a back patio. The house is conveniently located to the beach and everything you need is provided. We utilized the beach wagon, chairs and umbrella every day and it was super convenient not to mention another added touch for the value of the property. The private beach access and margaritas available at the cabana were another great touch! The house is also conveniently located close to grocery stories, restaurants and other sites popular in Destin. We will definitely look to stay here again!
