We had a great time in Florida. Staying at this property made an even more relaxing and it felt like home. Being able to bring our puppy with us was an added bonus. The property is beautiful and in a great location it was even close to the Dollar General where I could walk and get things that I needed. And go in the other direction and you're able to walk to the beach without having to get in your car and drive everywhere. It was a wonderful experience. My family is planning on having a family reunion next year and we are going to actually look into renting two or three houses for the family to stay in this beach community.

We have rented many, many houses so we are very experienced renters. This was a great property. It would even be good for two families. There are three king bedrooms, plus pull-out couches if that is not enough. Two floors with two family rooms, you don't see that very often. But what I really liked was the kitchen. It had a big gas stove and a wonderful set of stainless steel pans. i like to cook and this kitchen had nearly everything. The rest of the appliances were all top notch as well. The neighborhood is tight and parking more than two cars would b e a problem, but it's a short walk to the beach and there are many good restaurants around plus nice shopping. The house was clean and nothing was broken. We had a very nice time.

The house is amazing. The kitchen had absolutely everything you could need and much more. We traveled with 7 adults and had plenty of personal space with two living areas and 5 tvs. The location was short drive to shopping and restaurants. The pool was great and short walk. The walk to the beach was easy and the wagon made hauling all your gear a breeze. They even had boogie boards and sand toys available to use. The cabana at the beach is sooo nice with shaded seating and restrooms. My only complaint is we didn't stay longer.

Our family truly enjoyed the stay at Serendipity in July 2015. The house is very spacious, we had no trouble accommodating 9 guests. Each room had a king bed which was very important to us. We didn't want any of the couples to have to sleep in bunk beds or small beds like the ones found in many 3br rental homes. The kitchen had a regular coffee maker as well as a keurig brewer, both of which we used throughout the stay. There is a gas grill on the patio- one night we picked up some fresh grouper from the market and had a feast! The living areas are spacious and at no time did we feel cramped in the home. <br/><br/>The beach was about a 10 minute walk with our gear. I'd recommend bringing along some type of collapsible wagon to help haul things to the beach. There were a few golf carts driving through that would periodically give us a lift to and from the beach. The beach itself is well kept, and the staff is friendly.<br/><br/>The neighborhood has 2 pools and a tennis court. We didn't use the pools as we are all more of ocean people when at the beach, but they appeared clean. The house is centrally located to many Destin attractions. Capt Dave's restaurant is just next door, and several other restaurants are close by. Overall, everyone in our group really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Serendipity. It is a spacious homes with nice upgrades. Having 3 King beds is nice and comfortable! The 2 living rooms allows for the group to spread out a bit! There is a wagon on site to pull your beach toys and coolers to the beach. Beach Chairs are available on the beach for a fee. The walk is usually only about 5 minutes for most people, just about a 1/4 mile. During the Summer, there is also a free tram to take people to and from the beach!
