Destiny Dreaming is a beautiful home! My husband and I decided to rent this home for our wedding weekend. The house is very spacious and decorated beautifully. The house was extremely clean and very well stocked. We were able to host a small gathering for our rehearsal dinner and our family and friends loved the host. The golf cart and grill was a wonderful addition to the home. We plan renting again really soon!!! Thanks Southern Vacation Rentals!!!
Destiny Nightmare due to unprofessional or no services provided

I was disappointed with the house and Southern Vacation Rentals (SVR) lack of customer services. The week rent was not cheap ($2674.70) but SVR service was.
As soon as we entered the house, we heard a loud alarm sound coming from the kitchen. Turned out it was the range - malfunction/broken. It couldn't be turned off. We contacted SVR Sunday morning and a contracted repairman came to see what the problem was, not to fix it. He advised us to contact SVR again on Monday. He was able to turn off the alarm by turning off the range's breaker. My husband came to SVR office Monday morning to report the problem and explained that the range does not work - stove top & oven. Then the guest service lady rudely replied "Unfortunately things do break.” and that was all she said. No "We'll take care of it, sorry for the inconvenience.” which was what should have been said. It didn't break during our stay; it broke before we got there. We rented this house with a functional kitchen; if no kitchen, then we would have rented it for less. We have an infant and toddlers whose meals need to be cooked. How can a family function in a house with a broken range/kitchen??? Later that day, other repairman came and disabled the range's alarm. The range was not fixed. No call from any SVR personnel. We tried to make the most of it by cooking from the grill's side burner for the rest of our stay. I could have called SVR management several times a day to get it fix but that would ruin my vacation. I shouldn't demand for services which should have rendered nor begged SVR personnel to do their job.
The house interiors (fixtures and kitchen gadgets) are cheap and not up to standard. Many gadgets do not work (DVD players, boom box, etc.) The shower head in master bath is old and almost non-functional. With all the beds provided, it could only sleep 8, not 10, unless someone sleeps on the couch or floor.
I will not vacation with SVR or FlipKey in the future.

I came with my girlfriends for the very first time and enjoyed every moment. The house was so lovely that we did not even want to leave. Destiny Dreaming was such a convenient location, we didn't have to travel far to go places! Loved it very much and will definitely return!!!
Awesome, awesome, awesome!

This was our best trip to Destin yet! Destiny Dreaming house was amazing! The clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts and golf cart was an added bonus! Being so close to the beach and all the restaurants was incredible. So incredible that I am thinking of moving here one day! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home! We felt like we were on top of the world here!
Beautiful home, perfect location, great amenities

We were able to move our week from Sunday to Sunday, which we appreciated as we had two grad students with us who had limited time to stay with us. Craig in office was wonderful to open door and give me key to the golf cart on Sunday! We changed a few light bulbs that were blown, called to report coffee pot not working (Monday morning)(and as we had one like it at home, we knew how it worked) -- they brought us a new one within hours -- and we reported that the smoke alarm was chirping and needed a battery change (and this was on Sunday when we checked in). Because of the heighth of the ceiling, we couldn't change it and a gentleman came and changed it quickly as well -- on a Sunday! Great visit as usual, as this was second time we have stayed here.
Now -- new question -- as parents are aging and stairs are difficult, do you have any other homes for rent in this area (Destiny East)? We need at least one bedroom on the main floor, others can be upstairs. Thanks.
An excellent vacation home rental in a great neighborhood

We have stayed at Destiny Dreaming on three separate occasions. In July we were delighted to invite extended family over for a great July 4th celebration. With the extra bedrooms and hugh kitchenfor cooking, it was truely a family celebration. In September, we stayed for the Labor Day holiday. We always find this home clean, inviting and comfortable. We have stayed here so much we consider this our "vacation home."

My wife and I were married on March 27th of this year, and had reserved one of the Southern Resorts properties some 3 months in advance. Unfortunately, the original property we booked became unavailable only 3 days before our wedding, and consequently, our check-in date. I had visions of a nightmare experience forming in my mind, but Southern Resorts made my actual experience completely stress-free and painless. They upgraded us to the house of our choice without any additional cost. They would get an A+ for that alone, but it only got better.
Sometimes a property looks good online, but there's always that small chance that it won't meet your expectations when you get there. Our expectations were high, largely because what we saw online looked so beautiful and inviting. I must say, Southern Resorts did not disappoint. Destiny Dreaming is every bit as charming and relaxing as it appears on the virtual tour on the website. The interior was beautifully decorated, which is not what you get with a lot of vacation rental homes. There were rich woods, vibrant colors accented by darker decorative pieces, and a uniqueness to each room that made you feel that the owners and managers actually cared about the house and the guests who would be staying. Although we didn't use the back patio much, my wife and I would have loved to have breakfast out there some day. Unfortunately, the mornings were a little cool; but no worries, we enjoyed having breakfast in the kitchen.
The private golf cart was great, although again, we mostly drove our rental car and/or walked. I really enjoyed having access to the club house and its workout facilities. If you're active and don't like missing your lifting time, this is a real plus.
Finally, couldn't have asked for a better location for beach access except a house directly on the beach. We were only minutes from a great beach, and went there almost every day. I hope that I'm able to come back to this spot in the near future - A+ for sure!
Great vacation home!

Loved the spacious, particularly the two living areas. Small bedroom was very small, given that it has two double beds in it. Suggested that owners add a brigher bulb as this room only has one very dim overhead light and only one lamp -- like being in a cave. But that is literally our own suggestion, as the home is lovely and in a perfect location for us. We'll be back next year!

This place was great. It's nearly a ten minute walk to the beach, but the
house is worth it. The go cart and the free movies were awesome.
Best vacation I ever had!

The house was beautiful! It was very nicely decorated and there was plenty of room for everyone. Everyone wants to do it again next year!
A very comfortable vacation experience

We loved staying 7 nights at Destiny Dreaming. We liked it so much that we booked for next year upon check-out. The home was very clean and had all of the ammenities that we needed except for the garage door opener (but that was no problem).
Only suggestion that I have is to make sure that the cleaning staff do not have access to the door codes until after the 10 am check out time. We were lying in bed at 8:30 am when the front door opened and someone identifying herself has the cleaning staff came into the home. This scared me to death. Not a healthy thing in today's world!

Loved the home, great space and the kitchen was top notch with all the bells and whistles. Great for the guest that enjoys cooking! We had a wonderful time and the house was beautiful, our only wish was that there was ample seating outdoors for dining and entertaining.

January 9, 2009 My husband and I recently stayed November and December at Destiny Dreaming and loved it. It was furnished beautiful. We were so near the beach we could have walked but loved the goff cart instead. My daughter came to visit for Christmas and truly loved it also. We hope to come back this Nov. and Dec. and will enjoy our stay again. Satisfied Guest. Carol Mc
