Would have rather been beach front. Would have liked to have had details about lights (first night didn't know were the switch for kitchen lights were...hidden under counter, lights on all night)pool fountain not explained, no thermostat on hot tub(to hot), master bed room spread soiled with a huge stain, roaches on lower level, curtain didn't cover window in bed room next to Master bed room and frig leaked. Beautiful Décor, lots of room, close to shopping and groceries. Gate #1 very seldom opened with code.
Annual Adult Grenada Trip
Great House with pool and hot tub
Left on 05/09/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Annual Adult Grenada Trip
There was 15 adults in this house. We had plenty of room to move around. This was a very nice house with great beds for sleeping. I recommend this house to anyone. There was a TV at the Hot Tub!
The only issues I was 1) could not figure out what lights turn on in kitchen. Some never did. 2) The Jack and Jill rooms does not have an attached bath. It is across the hall. 3) To activate the hot tub needed a highly tech person.
What we loved about it 1) Beds slept great. 2) median room with on kitchen 3) Beach view 4) pool and hot tub 5) elevator

This was an awesome taste of the finer things in life! Beautiful accommodations with the best & most attentive service we have ever experienced! Though we had some occasional issues (with all the bells & whistles, you will!)- everything was attended to quickly & courteously! We even had phonecalls checking on how things were going when there weren't any problems. Thanks to Dave and crew for making this happen when we'd had another company cancel our reservations at another location the day before we were to check in!
Family Vacation Paradise with Room to Roam & Enjoy!

This property was a substitute for our original rental that didn't work out. We were so upset at first but once we saw "Castle in the Dunes" there was no comparison! We were so overwhelmed with all it had to offer! Great location to all the entertainment & shopping in Destin. The location to the beach was convenient and just a minute walk. The house had so much space including a game room, bunk room, kitchen and full bath on the first level for the kids/teenagers. The decor was so beatiful you would want to copy it in your own home. There is a beach view from every deck. The beach chair/umbrella service Kevin provided was ready everyday for us with no hassel of dragging your own stuff to the beach. The neighborhood was well cared for and a short walk to the pool & lake area. Everyone had their own space and really enjoyed our stay!!! We would definitely recommend this home to other families and hope to return again someday! We also heard, from a contractor, that a pool is being added to the now patio area which will only add to the enjoyment of this incredible vacation home!
