A group of my girlfriends and I wanted to go to Destin for spring break to relax and just lay by the beach. We struggled with finding someone who would rent to us because we were under the age of 25. Finally we found Ken. He was the owner of Doctor’s Orders who decided to let us stay. I am so glad that he did! We had the most amazing time! I have been coming to destin for 7 years and this trip by far was one of my favorite trips! We got into Destin at around 10:30 in the morning and we weren’t supposed to be able to check in until 3. I called Ken and he let us check in at 11 so we could get right in and start unpacking! The house was in perfect shape and having the two balcony’s was a plus! It also was only about a 5 minute walk to the beach! We all had a great time and made some pretty great memories. I would without a doubt stay here again!
This is our second vacation spent at Doctor's Orders. The kitchen is well stocked and the home is on a quiet cul-de-sac within a short walk to the private beach. Ken and Franni are very responsive and accommodating. We had a great stay and highly recommend Doctor's Orders if you plan a trip to Destin.
Easy access to the beach. It really is within walking distance. The private entrance to the beach was an added bonus. Location was perfect for us. It is so close to everything& well within walking distance to a few restaurants. The kids loved the pool. I think others mentioned how well equipped the kitchen was & it totally is. Anything you could possibly need is here. Would absolutely stay here again.
Location was excellent and close to beach, stores, restaurants and very safe... House was well stocked with towels, linens, kitchen had all you needed to make any meal, clean and large enough for 3 families with children... Pool was perfect after long day at the beach. The best part of all was working with Ken and Franni, they were attentive and making sure the trip was successful from start to finish..they worked with us when we had some small changes due to Tropical storm Cindy and that really made a huge difference on the vacation... Our entire family and friends that stayed with us appreciate the beautiful home and the professionalism of these owners...
Our kids from Chicago and Milwaukee traveled to meet us in Destin for a week's stay. The house was nicely appointed and met our needs. We especially liked the master bedroom with patio, as well as having a pool on-site. Plenty of sand toys and chairs available; the wagon to carry stuff to the beach was a must! It's about a two block (8 min?) walk to the beach.
The living/dining/kitchen area is all open. The kitchen is not especially large, but most equipment was available and adequate (the knives need sharpening! :-) We did cook dinner most evenings. Our family included 5 adults, one toddler and one infant - it was big enough for us, but I'm not sure the living/dining/kitchen would have worked if our family had been much bigger.
All in all though, we enjoyed our stay. The owners were very helpful throughout the booking and the stay itself, and responsive to our needs.
We had a lovely time there at the house at the end of February. Owners are very thorough with rental agreement details, which also lists everything you need to know about the house/area for the most part. The neighborhood is very cute and quiet and we enjoyed taking our daily walks. The beach is easy to access within in a few minutes walk and the beach was very nice and uncrowded. The only bad thing was that the dogs were not allowed on the beach, but we just made a road trip to Port St. Joes for the day and had a ton of fun with the dogs! The house is everything they advertise, you won't be disappointed.
We loved our stay in this clean and beautifully decorated beach house with everything we needed for cooking and relaxing. It was at the end of a very quite street. We love the amenities like the use of the umbrella and beach chairs as well as bicycles. It was also nice that 2 bedrooms had access to the upper deck. Just a short walk to the gorgeous the beach. We did not use the pool because of the time of year but it would be great in the warmer months.
