Living the Dream is a fabulous house. It was wonderful for everyone to have their own bedroom and bathroom with even a couple of spares. If I had any constructive criticism at all it would be that I wish there was more comfortable seating in the living area. A house this big that accommodates this many people should have more than one, three person sofa and four uncomfortable chairs in the living area. A large sectional or three sofas would be ideal. We love Destin Pointe and would definitely rent this house again.
Manager response:
Hi Mary, thank you so much for taking the time to provide this thoughtful and valuable feedback! We're delighted to hear that you had a fabulous stay at Living the Dream at Destin Pointe! We regret that the living room did not provide adequate seating for your party. Please know that we have passed your comments along for the local manager to review with the owner. We look forward to hosting you again for a future stay!

Mona E. Jul 2021

Rebecca C. Jul 2021
We loved the layout of the house. Perfect for our family. Lots of room and seating.
Daniel N. Jun 2021
Floors were not very clean (feet/socks showed the dirt). Kitchen island count finish is decomposing making it always sticky. Ice maker did not work but maintenance brought us 2 bags of ice. Other minor maintenance issues were resolved within a reasonable time.
Manager response:
Daniel, we appreciate your visit. We are sorry to hear that our home wasn’t cleaned to our usual standard. We will review with the local staff. We are planning many renovation projects in September. At that time we will be replacing the countertops. We will also ensure that the stand-alone ice maker is working well. We hope to host you again soon.

This house was perfect for our trip. It was bigger than we realized and gave us plenty of space for our families to spread out and enjoy our time there. We enjoyed both pools in the area as well as the beach. We will definitely be returning!
Casey S. Mar 2021
The home was professionally cleaned, comfortable beds, enough space for everyone to have their own space, loved the floor plan, and the individual bathrooms. The house is stocked with essential items for convenience. It’s a short walk to the beach. The community is very safe and enjoyable.

The freezer ice maker and the bar ice maker didn’t work properly. However, the staff were quick to address this concern. We also read the house private pool has a heater. We inquired to have the pool heated, and we were informed this property didn’t have a heated pool. However, the pool and the pool deck are very enjoyable.

You’ll be glad you stayed here!

Loved all the balconies, plenty of room to get away and get together. The ducks in the water behind the home came when you called them (my favorite part lol). Home had a nice beach theme. Kitchen was big enough for us to gather around and talk while fixing dinner and then plenty of room to sit and eat too.

Beautiful, well appointed home in a quiet neighborhood. Only drawback was we couldn’t stay longer!
George D. Aug 2020
Great place for multiple family groups to stay. King size beds and private baths for all. Kids have their own space.
Renee Q. Aug 2020
The house is beautiful. Plenty of room for the 13 of us. Had friends over 1 night for dinner and they also loved the house. Will definitely be back
Elaine T. Jul 2020
House was super spacious. We have 4 daughters and their families and there was plenty of room for all of us.
David Z. Jul 2020
Had a great family vacation for 12 with room for all (plus more if we had needed). Management was very responsive with some on site requests. Beds & pillows are very comfortable. Just needs bigger coffee mugs & some larger pots to cook for a crowd. Wish I had known that there are 4 bikes on site as I wouldn't have had to lug ours down.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, David. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

As a family that has visited Destin many times, this home was the best.! We had three families and there are 3 full amenity master suites with 2 additional spacious king rooms with private baths. Bunk room was amazing for our teens with a separate living area and there is an additional bedroom with a queen. Enjoyed the 3 different balconies and private pool. Comfortable beds and great location with access to gulf beach and snorkel beach. We were beyond pleased with thus rental and had an amazing stay! Highly recommend!
