We arrived just as hurricane Ida was about to hit. First couple days were a rain out but had a great time hanging with the family. Views are wonderful and the house was spacious!!!

Everyone loved the house! View and location right on the beach were great. Excellent kitchen...very large central island...very well equipped - and high quality stove/oven/microwave/refrigerator. Two large dining tables that seat 8 comfortably...one inside and one outside on the porch/deck.... were very high quality, probably the best we've seen in 50 years of going to Navarre. The large covered deck/porch provides tons of shade during the day and also provides a great view of the dunes and the beach. There is extensive storage in every room. Brand new washer and dryer (commercial quality) will let you "travel lighter" since it's easy to wash clothes/towels as needed. Outstanding outdoor shower...enclosed! Only negatives....1) the ice output in the frig is practically zero....we made an ice run every morning to get 2-3 bags of ice and kept them in the large freezer; 2) the top floor has the master bedroom and two other sleeping areas - which all together could accommodate 8 people....but there is only one bathroom for the whole floor. Worked okay for us since we had a family of four in that area with two kids (age 10 and 14). And we used the nice half-bath downstairs when needed! Dealing with Vacasa was great - all of the people we interacted with could not have been nicer and were all very "customer focused." The guys who came to the house to deal with one minor problem were very friendly, skilled, and professional....and provided good recommendations regarding restaurants in Navarre. All in all, our family group of eight had a great time at Whispering Palms and we're looking forward to booking with Vacasa again. The week and the house were outstanding.....one of our best experiences ever over our 50 years of trips to Navarre Beacch!

This was an awesome home, very comfortable beds, plenty of hot water we never ran out, beautiful beach, very well equipped with electronics and broad band.

House was very clean and worked well for us as a family of 8. Just a pleasure to rent, so much so we rented it again for 2022

House is just as described in the listing. 4 bedrooms 3.5 bath and an extra bunk bed nook. Hard to find a better porch on a nicer beach. Brand new construction, visited with 9 adults and had plenty of room, even an extra bed.
Plenty of kitchen items and lots of towels. The outdoor shower and grill are essential for the beach. Lots of patio furniture and seating in the kitchen / living room. Would book this home again in a heart beat.
There is a sky light tube in the third floor bedroom that acts as a pretty bright night light and some wind noise mechanisms that create a whispering during high winds. Those are the only 2 things I’d change about this property.

Kitchen was fabulous except for the really bad icemaker. Views were spectacular. Everything very clean and in good repair.
Had to provide all household products after 1st day, not a problem but would have been nice to know ahead of time. Enjoyed the pounding waves while falling asleep with the doors open. King sized bed was just 2 twins pushed together and sheets were terrible. Great customer service throughout. Would definitely recommend to others.

We had a wonderful time at Whispering Palms. The house was great for our group of 7 adults and 4 children (ages 1-8). Our favorite parts about the house were the SPECTACULAR VIEWS, wonderful porches, and the super comfy beds. There's not quite enough seating in the living room, but with lots of dining room chairs and bar stools it wasn't a problem. The kitchen is gorgeous. The only ice maker is the one in the fridge with a small bin, so plan on keeping bags of ice in the freezer. But it's well equipped with just about everything needed, including tons of pantry space. The shower on the ground level is super handy for rinsing the sand off, but there's no door, so I wouldn't count it as place for a real shower. We brought our own beach chairs, umbrella, and tent. But 2 beach chairs with umbrella set up comes with the house with instructions on who to call to get that set up, and the option to purchase additional rentals.
The layout of the house worked great for us, but might not be ideal for everyone. The master bed and bath are on the top floor, and the master bath is shared with the double bed room, as well as the open nook with the double bunk beds. The 2 queen bed rooms are on the main level, each with their own bath. The half bath is conveniently located next to the living room with a door to the outside as well. All the closets are huge and bathrooms spacious. There are currently no luggage racks, which would be a super handy addition. Especially since my 4'11" mother could not reach the closet racks as they are abnormally high.
We couldn't have asked for a better location! It's a fairly quiet beach with lifeguards on patrol. We were there the week both hurricanes were in the gulf, so the weather wasn't perfect and we had double red flags most of the week so we couldn't get in the water. But the house is close enough (5-10 min drive) to beaches on the inlet side for the kids to swim.
Overall, it was an awesome week in a great house and we booked it again for next year!
P.S. We left the 12'x12' tent there for the house, but it's really on it's last leg as a couple bars in the top are broken. So I wouldn't bother trying to use it in windy conditions. Not sure if it's ever not windy, but we used it the week of the 2 hurricanes.

This home was perfect for our family beach trip! Plenty of space to be together and also lots of private space. Worked well for our group of 11.

Had a great family vacation! Beach was gorgeous, very secluded very private. The house had everything we needed, but there were only two beach chairs and a small umbrella. Make sure you bring extra chairs and a tent, it is very hot there.
Vacasa, the property management company is difficult to get a hold of. They rarely answer the phone or email messages
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, Francis. We are working through a very high call and email volume at this time. Our agents are working very hard to answer each guest quickly and efficiently. We hope to host you again very soon!
