“The Boathouse Destin FL”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2016

I was disappointed with the house. The pictures that we saw on line were deceiving. The pictures looked better and different than the actual house appeared when we arrived. Beyond that the state of repair of the house was not very good. The kitchen had broken tiles on the counter top. There was mold in the master bathroom. The toilets on both floors were backing up. The pool area in the yard wasn't very nice. The gas grill was in horrible condition and my wife did not even want to use it. There was no table and chairs in the yard as the photos showed. So our plans of eating in the yard were dashed. Overall it reminded me of a frat house not a place I would want to bring my family. The one plus was the close proximity to the beach which was absolutely beautiful . Keep looking for a nicer house!

“First time in Destin!!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2015

The Boathouse was very beautiful and was wonderful to stay in. Our family had such a great time.the only downfall was the grass was never cut during our stay and the pool area in the back was unkept. I had to pick up a pull-up from the previous guest I assume. The grill cover needs thrown away and replaced. The lounge chairs had mold growing on the cushions, 3 out of the 6 plastic chairs are broken, few blinds broken slats,2 umbrellas broken. Outside cosmetics need attended to. Very surprised the lack of attention to the property

Response from the manager Thank you for taking time to leave your review. Your comments help us do a better job for both our guests and our owners. We are sorry that some items were showing wear during the time of your visit. The grill cover has been replaced, the owner is exploring options to umbrellas that will provide a more permanent solution. Yard maintenance is done every week, but if there are too many cars blocking the driveway, the lawn service people cannot get in to do it. Again, thanks for your input and we look forward to hosting you again!

“Family vacation”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2015

There were four generations and plenty of space for all. The first floor was great for the great grand parents and the third floor worked wonders for teenagers. All had a great time and we were close enough that my 79 year old father could walk to the beach. The living space was large enough for everyone to enjoy together. The pool was a relaxing retreat especially for the very young and old alike. We were conveniently located close to grocery stores, attractions and shopping. We would definitely rent in this area again. A good time was had by all!!

“Awesome Vacation Home!”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2014

My friends & I loved our stay at the Boat House. This home was clean, and had a lot to offer, as to keep you and your family or friends entertained. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need for cooking. We loved the size bedding in the bedrooms, and having a TV in all of them made our stay even more relaxing. The office staff was just great, and was very happy to answer any questions. The pool was a looked forward to relaxing point of our evening, after dinner and a wonderful day at the beach. This home is well taken care of, and we will use this vacation rental again on our return next year. We made a great choice in choosing Newman Daily. We recommend this home for anyone who need a nice relaxing place to stay, while on vacation in Florida!

“the rain that would not stop”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2013

the house is a nice house,the only draw back is, it is on a very busy street,there is a bush at the end of the driveway that blocks your vision when backing onto the street.the pool had a lot of black algae,it also has leak at the heater for the pool.

Response from the manager Record breaking amounts of rain during this guests' stay caused problems with all small pools. Unfortunately, nothing could be done to take care of pool issues until the rain subsided.

“One of best vacation rentals in 20 years we've been visiting Des”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2012

Two bedrooms downstairs are identical in size, with one bath between them and it was perfect. Plenty of seating space in living room, huge TV for big Ole Miss/Mississippi State game, wonderful master suite on second floor with tons of space, and great outdoor seating areas on all three floors. We could have easily slept 6 more people, and anyone with children will love the twin beds at the top of the second-floor stairs. The third-floor loft area is also great for kids or for someone who needs to work away from everyone else on their computer. And proximity to everything was about as perfect as you could get. We'll be back!

“fun was had by all! We love the Boathouse & Newman Dailey”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2012

we always use Newman-Dailey each year for a week long stay in Destin since 2004. We have alway recv'd excellant customer service. The air stopped working the second night and the next day someone came by 10:30 and fixed the problem. The dryer quit working and and someone came the next day and was not able to fix it so a new one was delivered by late thursday even though we were without a dryer they dropped off clean towels and offered to do our laundry which was very nice/ The man who delivered the dryer hit my car and with the dryer and failed to mention it me or my husband I tried not to let this upset my vacation, and the lawn service came to mow the lawn and we had to leave the pool area and go inside for safety reasons-other than those 4 issues we had we do love staying at the Boathouse and we like giving using Newman-Dailey for their attention to customer service. The employees at Newman are always friendly and treat me as if we have been friends for a long time I like the personal treatment I receive when they call or send emails you could stay some place else for less - but you get what you pay for!! See you guys summer of 2013!

“Great house. Good location. Close to beach and shopping.”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2011

Greathouse and great location the only thing to criticize with the home is with the small TV in the living room and it could be very busy with traffic during the summer as it was on a busy road

“Pretty Good Stay”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2010

We enjoyed the Boathouse. It is close to the beach and in a nice area of Destin. Inside, the house was nice and clean but I wasn't overly impressed with the outdoors. The outdoor furniture by the pool was a bit lacking. Some of the umbrellas were broken and the furniture was really old. The grass was also not mowed in the backyard and we were hoping that would be a fun place for the kids to play in an enclosed area. I asked the office to mow it at the beginning of our stay and when we left a week later, it still hadn't been mowed. It was disappointing service for the amount of money we paid. Other than that, the house is nice and comfortably fit two families. The kids loved the house, especially the loft area. I agree with other reviewers that the third floor is too hot to really enjoy. The master bedroom and closet are great! Overall, we had a lot of fun, I just wish that my request about the lawn had been taken care of.
