Destin Luxury Beach Rentals
We loved the accommodations, the location and the beach. Only hangups were limited parking and some of the locks in the home didn't work properly. Overall we had a great time though.
My stay at Playa Del Mar for my 40th birthday celebration was PERFECT!!
Destiny By the Sea is truly a beautiful community. The staff located at the gate were extremely friendly & helpful. The property that we stayed in was Playa Del Mar, and it far exceeded my expectations. There was a total of 15 guests. We had more than enough room. The design of the house allows for comfort during group gatherings, as well as privacy when wanted. We thoroughly enjoyed the ample seating in the dining area/kitchen for our family style meals. Saturday the guys grilled & it was superb! I couldn't have created a better way to celebrate the gift of life & bring in my 40th birthday even if I tried! We had the times of our lives! Thank You😊
We're so happy to host your family and sooo grateful we could be a part of helping you create wonderful memories together
Overall great, however maintenance needed.
This is a very nice property in a great location 1 row of houses away from a truly beautiful beach. Structurally the property is great, but there are a number of maintenance issues however. This property apparently is used only for rental purposes, and it shows. Kitchen is great, but stove had only 3 burners working. Living room couch is rather worn with multiple stains. Pool table is of mediocre quality. Fireplace is non-functioning (apparently a liability issue). All carpeted areas (and especially the stairs) are heavily stained and reminiscent of a frat house. Multiple light bulbs were burned out. A couple door knobs were loose or non-existent. Nonetheless, the gated community itself is well kept with a nice community pool and hot tub, and the bicycles that come with the property and the elevator are a nice touch.
Thanks for the feedback. All these issues were taken care of upon notification of them and we put in brand new flooring and furniture throughout based on your suggestions!
We had a great time and did not want to go home!
The house was spacious. We had 10 people staying at one point and everyone had plenty of personal space. I loved the kitchen and cooked in it every day. The kids loved the pool table. The neighborhood is awesome and so convenient to the beach.
When we checked in, there was a mixup and our reservation was in someone else's name. There were also quite a few roaches. When we called the maintenance guy regarding a problem with one of the bathrooms, he never returned our call. There were plenty of bathrooms so we didn't worry about it. Also, the picture listed with this property in incorrect. It is not on the beach but one row away.
Thanks for the feedback. The photos of the home are accurate as are the views from the balconies. This is not beachfront nor is it advertised or priced like it is. It even says front row in the core headline.
The palmetto bugs were taken care of, you just can't leave donuts and sugar out on the counters the whole time or bugs will always find a way to get to sugar laying out in the open.
This was our first time renting in Destiny By the Sea, and I don’t think we’ll ever stay anywhere else in Destin again. The neighborhood was great, very safe and quiet. The beach was perfect! The house itself was really nice, plenty of space for large groups. There were just a few things that went wrong while we were there that took about a day or so to get fixed...the grill didn’t work, but they brought a new one the next day. I would highly suggest that they add another couch in the living room, and replace the vacuum cleaner, it didn’t suck at all, made it very hard to keep the house tidy! The kitchen was very well stocked, but had no orginazation what so ever, took forever to find what you were looking for. And it could also use a much bigger trash can in the kitchen, with that many ppl staying in one house we were taking the trash out constantly. Overall the house was awesome, we had a GREAT trip! I miss it already!
We've added additional furniture and luxury seating areas per your request. Our newest photos and review reflects those changes. Look forward to hosting you again!
Great House very near Private Beach
We visited Playa Del Mar recently. There were 16 of us including kids, grandparents, and siblings. We found the house to be very comfortable, spacious, and well equipped. As a suggestion, the living room could use a bit more seating, as there is only a sofa and two chairs. Would be nicer for family gatherings to have more places to sit. The walk to the private beach is short and there is a vendor there for setting up daily chairs and umbrellas. Our stay could not have been more relaxing.
