We rented this house for a week for our daughter's wedding and family reunion. The house is beautiful and very spacious. We had the ceremony on the beach and the reception on the roof top where we could sit 40 people comfortably with beautiful views of the gulf. We were greeted at the house by a Five Star rep which was very nice after a long drive. We called Five Star a couple of times with maintenance issues and they were addressed very quickly. Honestly, we thought the maintenance person should be the one meeting us at the house since he knew the house extremely well and gave us the run down on different things. That certainly would have avoided our calls and for them to have to come back. Overall the house is gorgeous, the views from every room are magnificent and we were able to give our daughter the wedding of her dreams. If you are looking for a beautiful first class gulf front house / venue then choose Capitano you will not be disappointed .

We rented Capitano for 14 adults and were very happy with the home. Great location and beautiful, roomy home. One quirky thing about the house, 2 of the bedrooms had tubs only, no shower. Other than that great house.
We have rented many properties in Destin through the years from different owners/rental companies and without a doubt Five Star Gulf Rentals were the best we have dealt with. They were very accommodating and attentive from the reservation process through our stay. We had a couple of minor problems with our rental and they had someone out promptly to fix. Everyone we dealt with from Five Stare were excellent.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you had a nice beach vacation and enjoyed the property. Please let us know when you return to Destin as we would love to welcome you back and help with any future rental needs. Take care!
