A guest from Franklin, TN recommends this vacation rental
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.

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.

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!  Book Online at Destin Vacation Rentals or call us at 850 654 4659!

Another Fabulous Review on Paradise Reef!!

Jon writes,

House was amazing.   I have 4 boys, so to be able to spread out in the 3 bedroom house was a lifesaver compared to being cooped up in a hotel.  House was very clean and the management team had great instructions on how to access everything. they were also  very responsive if anything i had any questions during our stay.  comments i would have for the next guests:   the house did not have any food/condiments left or added -- so be prepared to bring / buy all your items.  the house did come with basic supplies that will last you a day or so --- be prepared to by all your soap, shampoo, paper products as well as laundry detergent and dishwasher soap.  the walk to the beach was manageable.  the house provides a wagon that helps a lot with the toys, cooler and chairs.  wagon did have one wheel that struggled a bit.  Our issue with boys 8 and 9 was the walk back --- just a struggle being wet and having to walk back with everything after a long day at the beach.  We adjusted and drove the short distance which was better for us. FYI, you can rent chairs and an umbrella at the beach -- i think $30 a day for 2 chairs.  Overall,  one of our best family vacations -- house was great,  beach kept us busy all week.
