We really enjoyed our family vacation at the Sweet Destiny house. Everything was clean and spacious, and although we had 12 people in the house, it never felt overcrowded. It is very close walking distance to the beach as well. Driveway fits 4 cars comfortably, and the location is perfect: conveniently close to everything. The kitchenhouse was beyond gorgeous, with lots a spacious room to fit several people. A few minor cons (very minor) that we experienced during our stay: 1. upon arrival there were not enough towels or wash cloths for each bathroom/person... however with a quick call to Southern Rentals, more were provided. 2. the light switches are rather confusing and hard to figure out. 3. the thermostat on the first floor (which controls 1st and 2nd floors never seemed to get cool and wouldn't stay at temp when set... the 3rd floor we eventually found how to put a temp on hold and were pleased. 4. as a couple who were in a room on the third floor, the climb up the stairs would get very tiring (especially at 7 months pregnant as well). There's nothing that could fix it, just be prepared for a workout if staying on the third floor (40 steps total). All in all, we had a blast and the house comfortably fit us all. We truly enjoyed booking through Southern Rentals, and having the mobile app to check in and out was awesome!! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

We had a few issues: It was a couples trip and it was 5 couples. The doors on the doors didn't lock, some of the covers on the beds were not clean with blood spots, dvd player in the living room didn't work. We called and they never sent anyone out to look at it. The pool was not clean out until Sat and we was leaving Sunday. We also calle about this issues. The air worked great and we loved the kitchen. Overall the house was great. We had a great time and I will tell family and friends about the house.
Location was OK, but privce too high.

From the very first phone conversation with Southern Resorts, we searched no further for a beach rental home. The actual rental process was very easy thanks to the fine expertise customer representaive with Southern Resorts. We had booked far in advance as this trip was a 2009 Christmas gift to our children/grandchildren. With the help of your representative, we selected a beautiful home "Sweet Destiny" in Crystal Beach. This home far exceeded our expectations - tastefully decorated and shouted out "Welcome" as we entered the front door . The kitchen was well equipped to meet the needs of our family of 12. The house location was perfect for our shopping needs as well as having numerous eatery places. The short walk and easy access to the beach was wonderful. On the down side, we found it very difficult to say goodbye to our lovely beach rental and friendly people of Destin. We want to thank Southern Resorts for helping us give our children/grandchildren a most memorable christmas gift.
The house & view were beautiful!

Our reason for choosing this house was my daughter planned a beach wedding and her whole family wanted to be there. In researching I found this site. I loved the idea that my entire family could be at the wedding. We all stayed in this one very beautiful house, a plus economically-so much cheaper than separate hotel rooms. There was ample space for 5 families -4 generations! Only a couple blocks to shopping which my mother (76) loved. Only a couple blocks to walk to the beach which my grandkids (16 mos. to 7 yrs)loved. My only problem I encountered was on the drive back to Missouri when your housekeeping called and said we damaged a door and would have to pay for it! I didn't even know there was a door behind a curtain in the living room, much less damage it! She ruined my entire stay, I was sick to my stomach all the way home. My mom had generously payed for the rent on the house so we could be there for my daughter, how was I to tell her there would be additional charges to her cc for something we did not do. She used this room as her bedroom, sleeping on the couch as she can not walk up steps, she did not even open the drapes as this was her bedroom and heaven forbid she open the windows someone might see in. No one used that room, but a 76 year old woman. I explained all this to housekeeping and was told we should have inspected the house on arriving and reported the door so we would not have to now pay for it - who knew you had to look behind the curtains! I fretted all the way home, totally losing my joy in the wedding. Unsure of what happened, but hopefully because housekeeping knew I was telling her the truth, thank God, no additional charges were added to my mom's cc, but I won't rent a house again probably won't even go back to Florida now. The house gets a 5 star, the experience gets a 0. They took all the joy out of the first vacation I've ever had with my entire family with that one phone call. I thank God you realized I was telling the truth! Read more

We stayed at Sweet Destiny last week.
Very happy with the entire home. Nicely
decorated and updated. Close to the beach
and the pool was great.
No real complaints. Had everything we needed
in the Kitchen with the exception of an
Ice Maker. Very unhappy that there was not
an ice maker and we were under the impression
that there was one.
We had to spend alot $$ for ice as the trays
were not enough for a group our 14. At one
setting we would use up what was available and
had to wait for more to freeze, so it was easier
to go and buy ice.
Thank you for choosing Southern Resorts for your recent vacation along the Beaches of Northwest Florida. Guest reviews are an essential part of the vacation industry and we are glad you took the time to let us know about your recent stay. Sweet Destiny is truly an amazing home and we are proud to have it in the Southern Resorts Family. You had mentioned the ice machine being inoperable during your stay, and I just wanted to let you know everything has been taken care of and replaced. Southern Resorts would like to thank you for choosing this remarkable vacation rental and we hope to see you again soon.

We had a wonderful week with our entire family of 13, including 2 grandbabies, at Sweet Destiny! It was a short walk to the lovely beach and very close to restaurants, shops, and other activities. There was plenty of room in the kitchen for lots of cooks, and many rooms, including a movie room, to gather and socialize. We loved our stay and hated to leave. We'll probably return again in a few years.
