Thank you so much for our rental of your fantastic property for three weeks. I was there the whole time and thoroughly enjoyed the home and the Destin area. The home allowed me to enjoy a week with girlfriends, a second week with my oldest son and his girl, and the final week with my husband and the our other 2 sons. Each week was different and all were great. Bob and I intend to rent from you again. :)

The listing for this home doesn't do it justice! It's a wonderful place for families, with every comfort imaginable. Our family of twelve, ranging in ages from nine months to sixty-somethings. We just spent an incredible week together here. There's plenty of room for getting together, and privacy when you want it.
We watched 4th of July fireworks from the third floor balcony, went sight- seeing for all the excitement up and down the beach for miles. The amenities are far beyond anything we've experienced elsewhere, plenty of dishes, pots & pans, beach chairs and such. The built in ice-maker was very nice, and two washers/dryers were very handy with kids in our crowd.
We can't say enough good things about this home or the owners, they are spectacular. (Billy even left sparklers for our kiddos!) We had such a great time and it helped us make memories that will be with us for a long time! Most def recommend this home and the owners!

We cannot thank you two enough. My family had an awesome time. I have already recommended it to other friends. It is exactly what we were looking for. Close to shopping, lounging and activities. Will be glad to come back when we return to this area, and we certainly will.

The location, gameroom, DECKS and beach access are great. It is the least crowded area of the beach on the entire street because there are not any mega condos sharing the access. The pool is great with plenty of tables and lounge chairs. The layout of both the house and the lock out unit work really well for large families or multiple families traveling together. Everything is very homey feeling, the kitchens are VERY well equipped, and the beds were all very comfortable. We had such an incredible week, thank you Billy and Jeannine. I almost hate to give such a glowing review with fear it may be completely booked next year.

The location and accommodations were perfect for our group of 16. Having 2 separate units on one property and the pool so close by us gave everyone in our group their own space. The walk to the beach was very easy for all in our group. Billy & Janeen were very helpful when we had questions about the area and activities. The houses and yard area are very well kept, and located in a beautiful gated committee, it allowed much privacy and really liked not having the usual beach traffic with kids running around. Highly recommend this unit.

Thank you so much. Your place is exceptional, the decor is beautiful, so beachy and like home. We enjoyed our first visit to Destin/Miramar Beach and are already planning for next year. Count us in!
This place and location are ideal. We were 100% satisfied.

We went with 2 other families and had plenty of room to relax and enjoy our stay in Miramar Beach. Jeanene was very accessible if we needed to reach her. Very short walk to the beach and wonderful place to stay! I would definitely stay here again.

Hey Bill & Jeanne;
We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your beach house. The main house and the apartment were perfect for our needs and the pool being right across the street was fantastic. Since 1990, we have been vacationing as a group ranging in size from 10 – 22. We’ve been going to Deerfield Beach where we rent individual villas. I think we will definitely be pushing the family for a return to Miramar Beach and their house!
Thank you letting us in the house early, we made much better time than we anticipated on the ride down, and your prompt attention to any concerns. We hope 2016 was the first year of many stays for us at your beautiful home.

Great location! Close to the beach. Very Clean and well maintained. The pool was just across the street and great to have at our leisure, no “open/closing time.” The property was shared between 2 families. We stayed in the "apartment", which was very nice and clean. Having 1 infant and 1 toddler it was nice to be separated for nap purposes. The only thing I would change is to have 1 tub/shower combination in the apartment vs. 2 showers. We turned the kitchen sink into a tub for the baby, which he enjoyed nightly.
Billy and Janine were a pleasure to rent with.
One last thing…….for all you “TREE FROG” lovers, this is your place to be, they come out from everywhere at night, totally entertaining!!! Thanks for a wonderful experience as 1st time vacationers to Miramar beach.
