This property was perfect for our friends and families. We had a group of 16 people, and each family had their own space with room left to spare! The house was beautiful and the location was great. The only down side to our stay was the heating of the hot tub. The hot tub was only heated 3 out of the 6 days we stayed here. The property manager was friendly and very responsive to our needs. The staff came right over whenever we needed the hot tub turned on, it was just inconvenient that it wasn’t ready when we needed it. I’m not sure why there is a heating fee when we were unable to use the hot tub for half of our stay (which thankfully the property manager waived for the inconvenience). Other than that, it was perfect. It doesn’t take away from the fact that we had an absolute blast and would recommend this place for anyone having a wedding or family get-together!

To say we enjoyed this home is an understatement. We had our family and closest friends stay with us for our wedding. It couldn't have been more perfect. The property was beautiful, the pool was beautiful and our house was beautiful. I was greeted by the property manager who was helpful and sweet as could be. I called her about having the pool cleaned the day of our wedding because it was windy and leaves had blown in. She had the pool guys there within a half hour. Overall our stay was fun and we lived in luxury. We will definitely rent this home again in years to come.

I have to say the house was a perfect gathering place for the 26 of our family. The accommodations are beautiful, and having beach access so close and having a pool, made for perfect fun! And Laura was so helpful pre trip along with while we were there. However, we have rented many Airbnb and VRBO houses and never found so many things not working. My most important concern prior to arriving was keeping my small grandchildren safe from pool accidents, hence the door alarms were important and Laura knew this far before our arrival. It was obvious those alarms were broken long before we got there. Hot tub drain was not covered - against the law and dangerous, electrical outlet on floor of outdoor kitchen was not covered which was unsafe along with a falling hazard, one golf cart flat tire and other wouldn't charge (had to have someone push us back to house), apartment washer and dryer broken, apartment oven didn't work and guest house oven took 30 minutes to heat up and gate by guest house wouldn't latch. This all caused problems trying to feed 26 people and keep beach towels and clothes clean and dry. Having said all this, the other amenities were enjoyed by all. If things were fixed we would definitely rent this location again.
Karen,Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you had a great time! We take guest feedback seriously, and have forwarded this information to the local staff so they can review and update the home as needed for future guests. We will be sure to follow up with the appropriate parties regarding your experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!

We loved the location and the two houses with a pool. It was perfect for our two families. The grass lot in the back was great for playing games on the lawn.

My family booked this property for a week to celebrate a 50th Anniversary milestone. It's a nice property, however needs numerous repairs. The Lanai sink/disposal doesn't work - the food, water run out from under cabinent, the dishwasher doesn't work, the vent-a-hood is broken, the grill smokes excessively, the ice maker doesn't work properly and was dirty, the fan is broken, one of the benches was broken. In the main house, everything was in good shape except for a couple of the kitchen drawer handles were stripped and would pull off. The Pergola sink doesn't work nor does the TV and the pool is missing several tiles. The secondary house has numerous repairs needed to it as well - mainly furniture not maintained and sliding door lock issues. Property across board needs porch light bulbs replaced as well. Vacasa didn't provide correct codes for the private beach access on the first day and took several calls to finally get a code that would work. There is a 10 pm - 8 am quiet time which was not an issue for our family. The house had more than sufficient space for our group of 15 and is in a great location with easy access to food, shopping, beach, golf, arcades, etc. The owners also supply lots of beach chairs, floats, miscellaneous beach and pool games for use and also had 2 - 4 person Golf Carts that could be rented for the week for an additional fee that we did utilize, We had already rented one Golf cart however so would of liked this amenity to be listed in the property listing. Do not feel like the property is worth the amount of $$ spent to rent it.

I can't even begin to describe how great this property is! Far and away, the outdoor rooms with kitchen, bar, fireplace, pool, hot tub are the best. There is soooo much room. Beautifully decorated and the Vacasa team was very responsive. And Laura, our local property manager, was nothing short of AMAZING!!!! She was so responsive and answered every silly planning question I had. She went out of her way to ensure we had the perfect stay. Highly recommend!!!

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The location is perfect. Not too close not too far away. We had a large group of high school seniors. Our kids and parents were able to spread out and enjoy themselves. The kitchens have plenty of everything you need to cook. The weather while we were there was ever changing and having the private pool area with two covered patios allowed us to enjoy our time the entire time! I definitely recommend this property.
From the trip planning and organizing perspective: I will say that not all rooms have a private bathroom. In the main house there are only 3 rooms (1 downstairs, 2 upstairs) that have a private bathroom. The other areas on the 2nd floor have bathrooms in the middle of adjoining rooms (perfect for family’s or friends who don’t mind sharing not ideal for acquaintances) It was a very stressful when our party arrived at first. I tried to contact the property manager ahead of time and they never answered any of my emails or messages. However once we arrived we were able to call Laura and Britni any time we needed and they answered immediately. To sum it up, I give 1 ⭐️ for being able to reach Vacasa after your reservation is secured to get assistance prior to the trip. I would give 5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to their customer service while you are there.

Our group of 26 was able to spread out very comfortably and we had a great time using all the outdoor space. Bedding and decor were updated and clean throughout, exactly what you hope for in a rental. Property manager was very responsive and on top of a pool issue just like you would hope when something needs attention. Our only suggestion would be the two dryers in the main house are super slow and it’s tough to turn wet pool towels. Third washer and dryer in the garage of 2nd home saved the day. Spiral staircase in the second home is very noisy and in hindsight, would not put our early riser kids up there. Golf cart rentals made zipping back and forth to dinner and the beach a breeze. Would definitely go back to Stones Throw in a heartbeat.

This was an excellent family reunion home. Great outdoor and gathering spaces with plenty of bedrooms and bunk rooms for privacy. Access to beach was very convenient, and the house came with so many of the things you would need at the beach (bikes, sand castle buckets and shovels, even a little wagon to pull it all in).
The only negatives I would share is the pool amenities. We chose the home largely because of the pool. We paid the separate heating charge, but probably wouldn’t have chosen this home in advance if we would have known what to expect there.
My 4 kids, and 7 nieces and nephews, were so excited about it when we showed up (as I knew they would be). Sadly the pool was freezing cold when we got there (and in December, it was 50 degrees outside, so we really needed the heat). Over our week long stay, the property management company were very responsive, and sent a repair person out 3 times. Sadly, they were unable to fix it for more than a few hours. I recognize that issues like this are hard to foresee, but it did have a big impact on our trip, so I feel it is important to record.
Thank you for booking with us! We are glad you enjoyed the home. We apologize for the issues you experienced with the pool heat, but we are glad our team was very responsive to your requests. The owner is aware of this issue and has hired a contractor to come out and repair the pool so future guests will not encounter this issue. We appreciate your feedback, and we hope to host you again soon!

Such an amazing home for a bunch of our closest friends to get together again. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend and the owner, as well as Vacasa staff, could not have been more accommodating. Would highly recommend staying here!
Diane B.Sep 2020
I loved everything about this house! The house itself was amazing! Laura the manager was incredible. She made sure everything was perfect. The owner Johnnie came by and LOVED him as well. I would highly recommend this house!!!
Blake O.Sep 2020
We rented Stone's Throw for our wedding weekend, and both families were able to stay here (one family in each house). Even with so many guests, this spacious residence provided plenty of room for everyone. The pool and beautiful landscaping provided a resort feel that is exclusively for you and your friends/family. The owner of the residence, Mr. Johnny Mac, stopped in occasionally to make sure we were having a great time and didn't need anything. He even brought my new wife and I a wedding gift! He is awesome! We absolutely loved our stay at Stone's Throw and would recommend to anyone looking to travel with a larger group!
Roderick H.Aug 2020
We enjoyed the hospitality from Laura as we toured the home and all of its amenities! We had an amazing group trip here and can't wait to go back next year! We had 14 guys and 14 ladies . We cooked outdoors indoors and even used the kitchen next door. This place has all the space you need for a large or small group. Amazing adventure in Destin! We loved it so much we're already planning to return!! Thanks again Laura!
Tameika H.Jul 2020
We loved that the property included two homes, which left ample space for our large extended family. The golf carts were a plus, but it was unfortunate that there was a separate charge for them. The carts should definitely be included considering the hefty price to book this vacation home. The pool was nice, but I must say that it was not very clean when we arrived. After two days, someone finally came to clean the pool. It would have been nice to have the pool clean when we arrived. Also, there were a lot of repairs that needed to be done around the property that were not fixed until two days after we arrived. However, the property manager did schedule maintenance to come, it just took a couple of days. There are tons of pool floats, beach toys, and anything else you need to enjoy your time at the beach available for use at this property. The close proximity of the home to the beach was definitely a huge plus. Overall, we had a great time staying at Stone’s Throw!
Thank you for your review, Tameika. We hope you enjoyed your stay overall and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are thoroughly corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

We loved the house, we loved the beach. It was an easy vacation. My whole family loved it.
Jeannine H.Jul 2020
This house is a perfect place to have a large family vacation. You are literally a “stones throw” from the beach. It was one block away. We really enjoyed the outdoor space. We cooked here every evening, and the kids enjoyed the large pool and patio space. We were all together as a family, but we were very comfortable and had ample space, so that we did not feel cramped. Each family had their own room. And one of the houses was used as the “kids house.” The older kids stayed here and had a blast together. The house has all the major appliances that you need, and the owner and property manager are very responsive to questions. It was very clean and the furnishings were nice enough that you felt like you were staying somewhere more luxurious. Some of these vacation homes have very “cheap” looking furniture and appliances, but this home was appointed with higher end decor and furnishings. We would definitely come back again. We rented all 3 houses together to accommodate 25 people. There was plenty of space.

So lets start with the minor things that it needs to make it a 5 star since its a short list.
For the price and size of the house it definitely needs an ice maker to accommodate big party of 30 people..we found ourselves going for ice run every day. Second is trash pickup. We stayed Saturday-Thursday...it would of been nice if there was trash pickup every other day. It was supposed to be Monday and Thursday pickup but for whatever reason trash was not picked up Monday and by the time we left Thursday there was about 6 or 7 big bags of trash that we had to just have on the side of the house dealing with the smell.
Third, there are no curtains in the rooms. That is a BIG problem when trying to sleep in.
Last is instead of charging for use of golf cart it should come included.
Now to the great features....we rented the entire property. This property comes with EVERYTHING as far as what u need to cook with, bake with, plenty of ovens, refrigerators, sitting area, yard space for kids. Pool was great size (could be a little cleaner). The rooms as far as bedding was comfortable, plenty of towels etc..Over all this place was great.

Our group of moms and seniors so enjoyed our time at Stones Throw. The property was beautiful and very well stocked. The pool area and backyard were amazing! The property managers responded quickly when questions arose. Overall, a wonderful week!
