7 day rentals sat-sat get % off!

Spring Break Parties must contact me first before booking. Major credit card will be held for incidentals for Spring breakers. Min age to book is 18-24 with parents credit card on file. Communication is key for this type of booking but is allowed, we have college age kids that rent as well but they are respectful to the home, fun is fun but there must be someone willing to be financially responsible in case of damage. As there must be an adult that will co-sign in case of damages they do not have to be present during the vacation.

Age 25+ may book with themselves as financially responsible party.

I expect guest to be considerate of all property. We know everyone works hard for 1 or if we're lucky 2 vacations a year so we provide a great home for them to do that in! We have made sure to have plenty of things to make our guest happy! Most of the time guests are arriving the day other guest check out and they deserve the same kind of experience and the only way to provide that is for our guests to understand were a family not a huge corporation and that each item in the home is precious and has to be taken care of so everyone gets to enjoy it!

We're not getting rich off of rentals and every penny counts we just hope someday that we are able to leave this for our children. So we really just expect our guest to be considerate and to leave our home in the same condition it was in when they arrive and to enjoy the blessing of their vacation!!!

No pets in or on furniture. Only dogs allowed. Additional pet fees are $200 for up to two small pets (14lbs or less) or one large pet over 15lbs. This must be paid before arrival thru (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or check.

This house is in a great location, very comfortable and large-family friendly. It is very well stocked with EVERYTHING you might need. The kitchen-dining and living room area were all open so everyone could be together very comfortably. The pool was very nice to have at the end of the day. We loved hanging out there in the evening. We had an extended family of 12 with 8 adults and 4 kids from 10-14. We could all have our own space with beds to spare since we just had 12 people! The kids loved hanging out in the outdoor living room after supper while the adults were right inside at the huge dining table. We had most of our meals in the house because we found it very difficult with long wait times for a family of 12 to try to eat out. The house is located within a short drive to Public's grocery store (less crowded and closer but more expensive) and Walmart (mostly normal prices but crowded). We packed a lot of our food but could have easily and affordably bought all of our groceries there. The house is located very near the beach and that comes with some cleanliness issues that you don't normally have at your own house I guess. But, that being said, the house was as clean as could be expected for this type of location just not spotless. We couldn't get the tv's in the kids bunk bed room to work but that wasn't much of an issue. And, I guess staying at a vacation rental you have to do more of your own cleaning than at a resort. We had not stayed at a rental like this before so cleaning up at the end of the stay took us a little by surprise. But we absolutely loved our stay at Heidi's house and would stay there again!! Just some Destin info we wish we would have known: They don't allow golf carts or cars or dogs on the beach. Parking in the public beach areas is limited especially in the late morning. The beach is walkable from the house but the closest access point to the house fills up fast. The state park is just about 5-10 minuet drive away (depending on traffic) and has a lot of parking options with the same beautiful beach and only costs $6 for a car full and you can go in and out all day. Get there early (by about 930am) to avoid the long check in line. We had no problem setting up our beach canopy and steaking out an area for the day on any of the beaches. We found coupons online for parasailing and snorkeling and chose to go with pelican adventures for the best prices. They were great!! Snorkeling in this area is not as good as tropical areas but very nice for kids or first timers. We had a great time at Heidi's house!! I had several questions before we...

We loved Heidi's house! She is a fantastic host - always quick to respond and help out with any questions. We have a family reunion every 3 years with adult siblings and our children. This home was perfect to give everyone their space & privacy while allowing for plenty of interaction on the main floor and by the pool. We spent most evenings wrapping up the day together outside in the screened patio. At first we didn't realize that the carriage house has 2 separated apartments. We thought it was connected inside by staircase, but they are two different rooms with their own entrances for those who need a little more privacy. The location just a block or so from the beach was great & easy to access by walking (~5 minutes) or with the golf cart. If you go further east there are other beach entrances to take advantage of, and we also did the quick drive over to Henderson Beach. Wow! Plenty of room and a really nice, wide beach. I can't say enough how easy and welcoming Heidi was with her home. Go and enjoy!!!

We rented Heidi's Airbnb and it was exactly as advertised. We had a family reunion in Destin and ended up with 14 people. Everyone had their own bed, two couples slept together, and there was plenty of space for everyone. We ate in all but one night and everything we needed for making kabobs, ribs and burgers were provided. The place was clean, pool was great for the kids as well as the grown ups. Although the public beach was within easy walking distance, the golf cart make it especially nice the help get things, umbrellas, chairs, floats, etc., down to the beach. Public beach was very nice and the proximity to our place made it easy to "stake out" a spot on the beach for everyone. If we ever gone to Destin again, I would try to rent for Heidi.

I am a mother of 4 daughters, and a wife of the most amazing husband! We own our own business We homeschool our youngest age 7, we have one Senior, one on the Chancellors list at app state in North Carolina, and one daughter that lives abroad in Denmark that works for a major clothing company and speaks 8 languages. We travel and work and have homes in several vacation destinations and let our girls learn by seeing and experience! We are Christians who hold family values dear to us. We live on the beach where we spend the majority of our time and love cooking out and having friends and family visit us. Were hard working and our hours are 24/7 but weve found a way to include our family and allow it to provide them education thru the process!
We have many favorite destinations New Orleans being one which is why we decided to buy a home there! We wanted a safe and secure place to take our family while getting to still enjoy what New Orleans has to offer!
We love to cook out and have all our family from the surrounding states meet us there and have a good ole New Orleans time!
Our moto is "Some people wish for things to happen, Some people hope for things to happen, and we Make things happen"
We believe thru hard work, good family, and prayer anything is possible and we are ok with that.
We hope to be the best host you have and we feel like communication is key!
Most of all we know you work hard for your vacation and we want to be part of that success and provide a beautiful home for your family and ours to enjoy it in!!!
