We have been coming to Destin for five years. We love being on the beach. When we arrived the house was not very clean. There was trash in the trash cans and there were large water bugs (roaches) inside and out. We called Sunday to have the heat turned on in the splash pool, it was Wednesday before it was warm enough for the kids to get in. I called for a refund and they said someone would be contacting me...No one did. It is difficult not having a bathroom, on the lower level, for the bunkroom and not having a door going outside, on the lower level, without going through the bedroom (you had to go out the front door to the side of the house, through the gate, which was hard to open, to get to the beach). The next time we will make sure each bedroom has a bathroom. The house was in a good location, the driveway was tight and short for three cars.

The condo was very nice modern and up to date amenities. The one thing I was really surprised at is there was no stand alone ice machine. The location was good, some congestion when trying to leave the condo due to traffic on the road. Was not happy with the distance of the pool from the condo but the pool was nice. So glad we had the martini pool for our little ones. The location was great very close to everything.
We did have several maintenance problems and I was actually a little disappointed in how many times we had to call for repairs which all were never completed. In all our years of staying in condos on the beach we have never had this many problems. I can say the service men were wonderful and friendly and they even told us they had never been to 1 condo so many times. With the money I spent renting the condo I don't feel we should have had so many problems. We were without Wifi for 2 days, doors did not close, light bulbs missing and never replaced, roaches, washing machine knobs totally off and could not set water level or temp.(never fixed) 1 bath tub drained very very very slow (never fixed), Ice machine in refrig was frozen, did not ice for 2 days, but they did bring ice for us.We did get our exercise going up and down stairs...had elevator but was very slow. I know these problems are minor but when you go to the beach you want to enjoy the beach not wait for repairmen to arrive.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Villa Royale. The kitchen provided everything we needed. The beach was beautiful. This time of year there were very few people as compared to the summer. The location was perfect. The only thing I would question is how small the living area is as compared to the number of bedrooms. I'm sure all the houses in this area are the same, but if everyone wanted to get together and watch a movie, it would be difficult. I love the hardwood floors on the main and 2nd floors. The bedrooms are very comfortable and well decorated. The elevator made it possible for our elderly friend to join us. The amenities are too many to list. 5 Star Beach Rentals were great. Very helpful and friendly. Would definitely rent again.
Thank you for leaving your review! We enjoyed having you as our guest and are thrilled you enjoyed your beach vacation. Please let us know when you return to Destin so we can help with any future rental needs.
“Nothing better than a week at the beach!”

We were very pleased with Villa Royale. The unit is nicely furnished and the kitchen was well equipped for a large group. The elevator is not locked as we have encountered in a similar unit and with three levels that is a major advantage when you're carrying luggage, groceries, and kids. The beach was fabulous. My only complaint was that the "exclusive" vendor for "beach service" charges $200 a week for one umbrella and two chairs. A competitor quoted me $240 for two umbrellas and four chairs but he wasn't allowed to set up on this beach. We brought our own. The unit has a splash pool but the water was too hot to use it. Gates were available in the home for the stairways which was very much appreciated with two small children. Overall, a great time and very comfortable accommodations.
We are glad you had a nice beach vacation and you enjoyed the beautiful property. Please let us know when you return to Destin so we may help you with your future rental needs.

“Home was a little too small for a 5 bedroom capacity”

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Royale. My one criticism would be that the living room of the home is just too small for a house with 5 bedrooms. We were a little disappointed with that. The balconies could have been larger. Overall a very nice vacation right on the beach.
We are thrilled you enjoyed your vacation and we hope you return to Destin in the near future. If we can offer any assistance with future rentals, please let us know.
“Absolutely relaxing and one of the best vacations we've had.”

The house was right on the beach and big enough to accommodate all of us. We loved being able to go out on one of the three balconies and enjoy the beautiful view. It was also great having a washer and dryer in the house.
The layout of the house was a little awkward. The only bathroom on the first floor was attached to a bedroom. So the six guys that stayed in the first floor bedroom with six bunk beds had to go to the second floor bath. Also the bedroom located on the second floor was extremely hot!! It never cooled down even though the maintenance guy closed at least two other vents in other rooms to allow more air flow in that bedroom. The kitchen wasn't very clean. But, we all still enjoyed the stay and the location couldn't be beat. Plenty of balconies for us all to enjoy the view. Would definitely recommend and rent Villa Royale again; just keeping in mind those few negatives. We had to call Five Star Properties a couple of times and they were always very helpful. They also booked a great deep sea fishing excursion that I would recommend for anyone who loves to fish.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you enjoyed your Destin vacation in one of our properties. Please consider Five Star Beach Properties for your future rentals.

After several visits to Destin we were a bit disappointed with our stay at the Villa Royal. Specifically, we had issues with the front door entry key code lock. We were either lock out and locked in several occasions. On a good note, the maintance staff was prompt in complete the necessary repairs.
