We held our daughter's wedding here and the house was perfect for the event. Elizabeth at Destination Getaways worked with us on all the permits we needed to obtain and when we called for a early check in the person was most helpful. I was not only impressed with the house, the location but very impressed with Destination Getaways professionalism and service.

We had a wonderful time at Gulf Paradise. The location was perfect RIGHT on the beach. The pool on the back deck was wonderful as well- the weather was chilly for the first couple of days so we got it heated. The outlet mall is super close as well which was fun to do one day. The only complaints we had- the upstairs two bedrooms balcony doors facing the street were broke so you couldn't go out them and they swung open with the wind but the maintenance man locked them. The front door wouldn't lock from the inside as well. The washing machine is a front loader and desperately needs cleaned on the inside rim- full of mold. Besides the washing machine the house was spotless- so clean! The dishwasher could use a tune up. The downstairs bedroom window facing the street is broken so you can hear people from the other houses. I loved the furniture and layout of the house. They do not provide beach towels which it said that on the home manual but not in any description when booking so we had to go buy towels. Make sure you purchase everything from salt and pepper to toilet paper bc it is not stocked. The house can sleep 18 and with that large amount you would expect them to provide more than one umbrella and two chairs for the price. We loved our stay- the ice machine was a great surprise as well as the garage fridge. A couple maintenance men worked on the back deck but they were nice and not disruptive at all. The trash was never picked up but maybe it was a fluke with Covid. We had 7 adults and 3 kids with PLENTY of room. The house was not toddler friendly for my one year old but great for my 3 and 5 year old. If you need a big house right on the beach this is it!

This was a wonderful house on the beach, close to everything, very clean, and really just perfect. We never had to call the management company because we had no problems at all...which is remarkable. We made most of our meals at the house and found the kitchen extremely well stocked with a large variety of pots, pans and dishes. I would stay again.

We had an extended family vacation and wanted a home as close to the beach as possible. All I can say is wow! This home was incredible. immaculately maintained and perfect location. We already agreed, to return next year.

Only issue I had was the number of beach chairs that came with the rental. For the number of bed rooms rented, should have had more chairs.

This was the perfect house for our once a year, family vacation/reunion. So much so, that this is our second year to rent this house! The location is perfect (close to many restaurants, shops and the outlet mall) and the house is not only beautiful and immaculate, but spacious enough that no one felt crowded, even with 16 people! Thank you!

We were welcomed to Destin with frightful storms, gusting winds and driving rains that resulted in a widow being blown out of one of our bedrooms. The very next morning Destin Getaways promptly moved us into Gulf Paradise and the name is spot on - it was a paradise! The heated pool was perfect for our 2 small children and the amazing beach was just steps down. We had an awesome stay and are talking about returning!

Gulf Paradise is a great location right on the beach with a great view. Plenty of room, comfortable, great kitchen, plenty of bathrooms. The beach here is fantastic - beautiful white sand!! I would recommend this house for your next big family reunion/vacation. Only weird thing was the guideline to use Finish tabs in the dishwasher but those were not provided (we bought some anyway) and there were no kitchen garbage bags provided either even though there were two kitchen garbage pails (seems like those would be provided, we left our extra there for next renters). Nothing to prevent you from staying but maybe ask about that if you rent here. Huge house like this also needs more than just 4 beach chairs provided in the rental fee.

Our rental experience was good. We ran by early to find our home and met the previous renters. They were a little disappointed in their stay which made us quite nervous about coming in later. We called the office to let them know our concerns and they said they would get right on any problems we discussed. We got to go in a little early and were completely blown away. This home is geogeous! Everything was perfect! The kitchen was to die for, we cooked inside and on the outside grill. Everything worked great. The bedrooms were clean and comfy.The pool on the back porch was perfect,the view from the back porch was beautiful and it was wonderful having our own private access walk (with shower) right to the beach to our complimentary 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas we used almost everyday! The location of the home couldn't be beat either. Right across from the outlets and not far to anywhere in Destin or 30A! This was definitely our favorite house and stay while in Florida!

We were expecting a nice, clean vacation rental home and this house exceeded our expectations. The house was immaculate. The view and access to the beach were amazing. The pool was clean and easily accessible. The staff was courteous and helpful. I cannot say enough about this rental property. Definitely worth every penny!!! We will be back and request this property for sure!

I rented this house for my mothers 82nd birthday so that friends and family could all meet and stay in the same location and it was perfect! 12 ladies and it never felt crowded, very few steps to the beach, a pool for those wanting to stay out of the direct sun and directly across from the outlet mall for those wanting to shop. We will definitely be returning!

A great place to spend your vacation

This place is absolutely gorgeous. The house was well maintained and our family had a great time here. The only negative out of all the great features is internet. It was very slow if we try to stream or watch movies through netflix but they can easily fix this. Everything else was wonderful. I would book this place again and again.

Our son was getting married in Sandestin and we were expecting a large number of out-of-town guests. This house was perfect and housed many adults comfortably. The only issue that we encountered was a minor gas leak that was being investigated when we arrived. As a result, the gas was turned off for the duration of our stay and we couldn't use the stove or the grill. John was very accommodating and brought us electric griddles, stove tops and even a propane grill to use during our stay. We will definitely stay at this house again in the future!

We had a wonderful time. The only problem was a dirty grill. We had to clean the grill and replace the overflowing grease pan, which someone had also place another pan lower to catch the grease. The grill smelled awful and we were not about to use it in that condition. Other than than that,
, all was good.

Exceptional property, but needs some routine maintenance

This is an exceptional beach-front property, but it needs just a little routine maintenance to make it perfect. First off, the property pops as soon as you walk in--it's beautiful, with high-end finishes and spacious rooms. We were a group of 8 (6 family members + 2 teenage guests), and the house was spacious enough for all, plus some. We didn't even use on of the bedrooms. The upstairs master is large and well-appointed, and the bathroom and walk-in closet are very large. We loved using the kitsch with high-end appliances you'd find at home, using the grill on the deck to bbq steak and seafood, and the small but large-enough plunge pool on the deck. All very nice touches.

The only issues I could see were routine maintenance items that could easily be fixed--door handles ripped out of closet doors, toilet paper racks ripped out of the drywall, a non-functioning ice maker, and balcony doors in the upper level bedrooms that did not close and lock and thus were blown open by the wind each night. We secured the doors with wire around the door knobs, but even that didn't prevent them from opening somewhat, which is a problem if it rains. The things I mentioned could be easily fixed, and should be expected problems in a salt air environment.

While the above-mentioned items were annoying, they did not detract from our enjoyment of this property. It really is the nicest and most spacious beach house we've rented, and it's immediate proximity to the beach and Gulf is its biggest selling point. It was wonderful just walking up and down to the beach each day, and having our own exterior shower/hose to wash off with before entering the house. The property is centrally located to any place you'd want to go in Destin or Sandestin, with a brand new grocery store and a fresh seafood store literally 2 mins away. And the outlet malls are just across the intersection. Again, we loved the property and would certainly consider staying there again.

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for leaving a review and we are glad that you had such a wonderful time! All of the maintenance items have been corrected, including the ice maker. Thank you! Management

House was as pictured, elegant yet comfortable. Great location near shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Beautiful beach right outside your door. Only complaints were the fireplace didn't work and it would have been nice as the temperature was chilly at night and paid for pool to be heated for the week which was not heated when we got there. Maintenance man Dan was sent when we called and he said he knew that the fire place didn't work, something about the owner needed to fix and also knew that the pool wasn't heated and that the pool people needed to be called. Seems like this should have been taken care of before we arrived. Courtney did reimburse us for the pool not being heated and did get pool people out to fix. Otherwise our stay was great. No body wanted to go home!
